Facebook Fan Page

I'm in the process of setting up a Facebook fan page. I know you don't want to read about my niece's wedding or my husbands Disney chats so I decided to keep my scrapping stuff seperate.
You can "like" me here. When I get 25 likes, I'll offer a freebie. Gotta learn how to do that on Facebook too you know.

Home Is Where the Heart Is kit

I couldn't wait to get this posted. I just love the way this came out.

If you remember we were given a picture of little James and the story behind the picture. Deanna made the lovely outfit he was wearing in the picture. The picture was taken when he was two days old just before they left the hospital to go home. So that was my inspiration for this kit. He his going HOME and I'm sure there will be lots of love (HEARTS), hence Home Is Where the Heart Is was born.

Just a reminder, just like the last three rounds, you could only pick up the freebie at STS. And you have to sign up (which is free). Image is linked.

Home Is Where the Heart Is is almost done!!! Just got to make the preview all pretty. Look for the link to STS tomorrow! Or maybe later tonight if I could stay awake. I just love the soft pretty pinks and blues!

Here is a sneak peek of what the kit has in it. I did this layout for a speed scrap at Stuff to Scrap.

Round 4 starts today!

This round is challenging. We have to make a mini kit that was inspired by a picture and/or story we were given. Deanna just had a baby. She made an outfit for little James and took him home in that hand made outfit. So I think I'm going with... Home is Where the Love Is... with soft colors. Stay tuned for more details.

Voting Time and a Freebie

It's time to vote for your favorite Designer Resource. If you don't remember, everyone had to do three extractions for this Round 3 of the Designer Darling Contest.
You can pick up the kit at STS here.
You can vote for mine (oops, I mean your favorite) here. The poll says to pick three but it only lets you pick one. I really hope it is mine.
A made a little freebie for you. I choose green being a neutral color for girls or boys. When you download from STS you get the grayscale and can match any kit you have by recoloring.

See what I made this week

This week we had to do extractions! I haven't much experience in this area but I think they came out pretty cool. My daughter is really into singing and dancing lately. And we all like to play video games. So these gaming extractions came to mind.

Head over to STS to pick up these goodies.

Whoot! Whoot! I made it to Round 3. I DIDN'T get cut! The challenge this round is to extract items either photographed or scanned into the computer. What to do? What to do? So far the only idea I have is.... technology.

Week 2 and some show and tell

This weeks competition for the Designer Darling Contest is well under way. This week we have to make a monochromatic kit. I came up with 5 color palettes before I finally decided. I finally decided on the first color palette. I'm probably going girly with hearts, flowers and girly tidbits.

Everyone's submissions are due Sunday night. Be sure to stop by and pick up my (I mean everyone's) contributions.

After this week they are cutting it down to the top 20. So that mean 14 will be cut. Please come and vote for me on Monday. I'll let you know when the poll goes up.
Up next is My Sweetheart. A Gorgeous kit by Christin. It's not make with the traditonal reds and pinks but it is so loving! Don't you just love that cute little couple. You can pick it up at her Scraps N Pieces store here.

Here is one of the layouts I made with this kit.

And it wouldn't be me if I didn't give you a freebie I made using this kit by Christin.

Designer Darling Contest Entry + Freebie

I've completed my entry for the week 1 Designer Darling Contest at Stuff to Scrap. It was a lot of fun. The colors were super easy to work with. Everyone came up with such unique takes on the challenge. I wouldn't want to be a judge. Unfortunately, I have to put the download link at STS so everyone has to go there to download. Signup is free. The preview is linked to the site to download.

Whatever we didn't put into the kit, we could offer as freebies on our blog. I know it's not much but if you pick up the kit at STS, you'll have a nice size kit.

Contest thoughts

I've been working on my entry for the first week of the Designer Darling contest. I posted the colors the other day. I think I'll be doing monsters or robots. I'll see as a design more in the next few days.
Like last year, you will have to go over to Stuff to Scrap to download my entry kit. Whatever I make that I don't put in the kit I'll wrap up and give to you!
