Let's get caught up!

So it's been well over a month since I last posted my layouts! I've been scrapping but have been busy with fun activities that I just haven't had the opportunity to share layouts here. But I'm back with some gorgeous goodies to share with you all!

These are just the layouts I've done this past week - check out my full gallery at DSA to see other layouts I've created in the past month. :)

First up I have this fun layout documenting our camping adventures. I used Penny Springmann's fun kit Gotta Get Away - I absolutely love the activity tiles!

Next up is a fun page of my hubby and I :) I used Shawna & Lauren's latest collab - We're All Waiting For Something. Gorgeous colors in this kit!

I used 3 yummy goodies from the Sweet Shoppe on this next page :) A fun kit by Melissa Bennett, a fab template from Cindy and a fun new font from Darcy Baldwin. And adorable pics of my little guy :)

This next one I did for one of the challenges over at Sweet Shoppe - scrap a page with only 5 solid papers. I was pretty nervous about doing this one since I love patterned papers but Kristin Cronin-Barrow's new kit Naturally You has some amazing solid papers!

A sweet page about my son and his mormor using Shawna's new kit Cozy Blue Jeans.

Last up is a page using Julie's newest release - Smart Chic. I LOVE the colors of this kit! Especially that black paper with the flowers - gorgeous!

That's it for today! Here's hoping I don't wait a month to post! lol

Fabulous new releases!!

It's been a while since I've updated this blog - June was a crazy busy month for me! Guests, seminars - an all out busy month! So please look at my gallery at DSA for a look at the fabulous layouts and products I was able to work with! You can find it HERE.

First up I have La's newest release - You Make Me Crazy. I paired it with a fabulous template by Cindy - Set 63. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out :)

Next up is a absolutely gorgeous kit from Kristin - Sugar and Spice. I also paired this one up with a template from Cindy's newest release. And I used pics from a fellow scrapper since I don't have any girly pics :)

And finally I am extremely excited to share this next page because it is will my new CT!!! I am now part of Julie Billingsley's team :) One of my favorite designers!! This last layout showcases Julie Billingsley's newest alpha - Art and Soul Alpha: Neutrals and uses an older kit of hers: Leaps and Bounds.

That's it for this week! I'll be back soon with more :)

And guess what? La is back with the color series! This week is rocked the yellow color palette - and she added a fun LONG kit name too! You Make Me All I Was Meant to Be is perfect :)

This next page isn't using a Sweet Shoppe product - it's using Jennifer Fox's fabulous Tomorrow's Another Day kit. And I wanted to share that it's Jennifer's 1 yr design-iversary so she is having a sale! And today is the last day!!! Everything in her store is 50% off!!! So RUN over to The Digi Chick and pick up some of Jen's gorgeous goodies :)

And lastly I have to toot a little bit :) My layout featuring Kristin Cronin-Barrow's kit Tropical Hideaway and Cindy Schneider's template set 55 is the layout of the week over at Sweet Shoppe! (well the week end's tomorrow - so I'm a little late in post this!) If you go to the Sweet Shoppe Designs home page you'll see my layout in the lower left hand corner :)

Not much to see!!

So if you are wondering why there isn't anything to see on my blog...well it's because I link all my layouts from DSA. And right now DSA is down. Guess this tells me that I should upload my layouts to photobucket and link from there instead! I think I'll be doing that in the future! Anyways - I will be back tomorrow/Saturday with some fabulous goodies! So keep your eyes out :)

Friday Layout Update!

So I obviously didn't come back last Saturday to post the new releases over at SSD :( I need to make it a habit to post my layouts the day the kits are released in the store! So hopefully I'll become more consistent....fingers crossed! (btw - don't I always talk about how I'm going to post more often? it seems that way to me....)

So let's look at some of the beautiful releases from this past weekend over at SSD.

First up - La's newest release - You Lift me to the Clouds. Her color scheme for this week was blue -and she knocked it out of the park! This kit is absolutely GORGEOUS! I know I plan on doing another page with it :)

Next is Libby's adorable new kit - The Bee's Knees. This kit is so fun and colorful! (and I must say the patterned papers are awesome!)

Lastly is Shawna's release - a couple of very fun Title packs and a very cool font with Darcy Baldwin. Both are perfect for adding the finishing touches to layouts!

And last up - is my new favorite kit from Jennifer Fox - My Birthday Boy. Wonderful primary colors and a ton of fun elements! The perfect kit!

Alright - that's all for today. I have company coming into town for Easter so I don't know when I'll be able to post layouts and update the blog. Just 2 reminders: 1 - it's Scrap Orchard's 2nd Birthday and they are having a sale! And there are a TON of fun games going on in the forum! 2 - check out SSD tomorrow for all the new releases!
Have a Happy Easter!

Layout Overload!

I have a TON of layouts to share today! Some are for my designers and others are for fun :) So let's get right to it!

First up is this fun layout showcasing Blake's love of dinosaurs. I used Libby Weifenbach's kit Modern Stone Age Family.

This layout uses a kit I bought a while ago - Just A Kid by Fee Jardine. And again I used one of my favorite pictures of Blake :)

Are you ready for some sweetness? Jennifer Fox teamed up with Shawna Clingerman to create an absolutely ADORABLE kit called Sweetiekins. I love it!

Now we are going to hop on over to Scrap Orchard and check out a few of today's new releases! First up is Hook Line and Sinker by Tracey Howard. I knew right away it would be perfect for pics of my husband and I :)

Are you ready to seek adventure? Well this kit by Tracie Stroud and Molly of DeCrow Designs is absolutely PERFECT to scrap those pictures!

Time to get ready for Easter! Lyndsay has an fun new Easter/Spring kit out today - and I think the bunny is absolutely ADORABLE!

This next kit I did just for fun. :) I used Shawna Clingerman's stunning 4 My Boys collection - all 4 kits are absolutely perfect for pics of Blake. And I also used a template from Cindy Schneider - her templates are perfect for scrappers who love lots of layers and papers.

And we are finally to the last layout for today! I used a kit that I bought a LONG time ago - Stormy Weather by Lauren Grier. I also used her new last week Layered Up In You Page Templates, along with 2 of her alphas. And I am totally thrilled with this layout!

Friday Fun Day!

I have been so bad about posting here on the blog! Fingers crossed - but I hope to update the blog at least once a week! That shouldn't be too hard to do - right? lol

Alright - on to my layouts from this week. (to see past layouts - check out my gallery here) Jennifer Fox has a fun challenge going on at her blog - and it uses an awesome template created by Leah (girlygirl). Here's my page using the template and Jennifer's kit I {heart} U. I love how the page turned out - the pics of me and Kevin were just perfect!

Now this layout was also done for a blog challenge - but for Lauren Grier instead! Jennifer created a stunning template for the challenge (make sure you check it out!) I used La's kit Birthday Monster for my page...which is the first I've scrapped of Blake's 2nd birthday! (I don't even think I've scrapped his 1st birthday - I must get on that!)

This next layout is done with La's newest kit - which is also a collab with Laura of {simply.scraps}. As soon as I saw the kit I knew it would be perfect for this pic of Blake! I absolutely love how this page turned out!

On to my last CT page for this week - Lyndsay Riches released an absolutely adorable ice cream themed kit called A Cherry on Top. She really out did herself on this kit - it's stunningly perfect for all those ice cream pics! I also used a fun template by Megan Turnidge to help me with the page - she has some fun templates!

Last layout for the week is one I created for a challenge over at SSD (Sweet Shoppe Designs). The challenge was to create a monochromatic layout using Green. I knew right away that a page dedicated to Blake's favorite color would be perfect!

Alright - that's it for today! Here's hoping that I come back soon with more layouts! lol

New Pages!

Lots of pages to share today! So we'll get right to it!

First up is a page using Snowy Sweetness by Wild Dandelions and Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I knew as soon as I saw this kit that I needed it - it has figure skates and figure skaters in it! One of my passions! And I absolutely love the page I created :) My best skating friends! (who I get to see in a few weeks! yay!!)

This next one is for my All About Me book - the 10 things I love about me! I used ScrapKitchen designs gorgeous kit Kiss me Kate.

So some fantastic news from Sarah Bennett - she is now selling at Scrap Matters permanently!!! We are so stoked for her! She has a fabulous release this weekend - a gorgeous vintage feeling Valentine's day kit called Love You Always. I LOVE the alpha! And the kit is so beautiful!

Lyndsay has a new release!! YAY!!! She really outdid herself this time! Love and Lullabies has all the perfect elements for sleeping beauties! And a bunch of gorgeous papers! Love it!

This next page uses Amanda Heimann's newest kit - Momma's Boys. As soon as I saw it I knew I needed to combine it with Scrapping with Liz's new Block Alpha Templates. I LOVE how the page turned out! Definitely thinking of printing this page out and framing it up in Blake's room. (btw - I have so many ideas of how to use these Block Alpha Templates - so glad I picked these up from Scrap Orchard!)

So I am trying to do Project 365 - and so far I've been pretty successful. (well it's only been 2 weeks! lol) Here is my first week - I used Snowman Soup by Tracey Howard and DeCrow Designs Project 365 Blueprints.

I hope you all have had the chance to check out the January Mega over at Scrap Orchard because this kit is absolutely GORGEOUS! And if you do/did pick up the kit - check out the Mega Challenge (hosted by moi!) - I'd love to see your layouts using the Mega!

Last one up today uses a oldie from Jennifer Fox - Lil Dude (which is actually a collab with Melissa Bennett and Nikki Epperson). I love all the papers and elements in this kit! Perfect for all your boy pages :) I also wanted to send you all over to Jennifer's blog - there is an awesome template challenge going on right now - you don't want to miss the opportunity to win a free kit from Jennifer!
