First I have to tell you how amazingly honored I am by this new template set Trixie Scraps is releasing. She has based the six templates off of layouts I have done. Isn't that awesome! There really is no greater form of flattery. So if you like my work, then this template set is perfect for you!! Check it out-

It didn't feel like it here in CO yesterday! We got a good snow storm filled with lots of heavy wet snow. School was canceled so we enjoyed a quite relaxing day yesterday. Anyway on to Scraps n' Pieces new kit- Early Spring. This is another kit that they designed after one of their CT members. And boy do they have a great deal for you, the kit is 40% off this week and all through the month of April!

I have another new kit to show you today- StashHappy Designs just put out a new kit called Hey Baby. It is has lots of colors so it is good for both boy or girl! You can get it now at IvyScraps for only $4. Preview is linked.

Here is my layout:


New Kit!

First, this is Trixie Scraps newest kit. She made something for the fellas in your life this time around, especially all those who love skateboarding. There are lots of fun skateboarding-themed bits in here, but I also included LOTS of more generic goodies for all the boys you're scrapbooking about. This kit is especially suitable for teens, but as you'll see from the layouts below, it works GREAT for younger boys, too... and, you can even use it for snowboarding and inline skating layouts - lots of versatility in Sk8ter Boy! Best of all, its on sale THIS WEEKEND ONLY for 20% off. Grab it now before its back to regular price on Monday!

Here's a closer look at the papers and elements - this kit is so bright and fun!!

Here is my layout:

Next, she has the second installment of Project 365 grab bags. This is stuffed full of essential goodies for all you brave souls who are still going strong on your projects. This grab bag includes 6 products: a mini kit, a set of templates, 3 element packs and an alpha pack. They all coordinate with each other, but are also really great for stocking up on your basics - and of course, there are plenty of goodies in there, even if you aren't working on Project 365! The bag is just $3.50 and it's only available for one week from March 12th through the 19th, so act fast and scoop it up at a big discount! A reveal of everything inside the bag can be found in the detailed images in her store - no secrets!

I love how my layout came out:

And last but certainly NOT least, she has got a new set of blog wear in the shop, a collab between Trixie Scraps and her fabulous blogwear artist, Twinderland Scraps. It's perfect for sprucing up your blog for Spring and just in time for Easter! It includes a choice of 3 different backgrounds, 3 different headers, 3 post dividers, 1 frame/cluster and 5 unique sidebar labels. Plus, she gives you step-by-step instructions, complete with screen shots, that walk you through the exact steps you need to take to get these pieces installed on your blog. For just $4, using these pieces and her instructions, your blog can be fabulous and pretty in no time at all!!

And that's everything for this week! I hope you have a GREAT weekend!!

New Kits and ADSR Layouts

I love Fridays- that means that I have new kits that my wonderful designers have made for you!!! First I will show you Laurie's Scraps 'Circus of Life'. Once again she nailed this kit- I love the elements, word art and colors. Don't forget to grab it while it's on sale!!

And here is my layout:

Next is a new collab kit Trixie Scraps has out with Madame Wing. If you are ready for spring- then this will only help put you in the mood. Daisy Crazy is such a fun kit!!

Daisy flowers are my favorite so when I saw this kit I instantly wanted it- however I only have boys and figured I would have nothing to scrap. Then I decided to use the kit to make the latest layout for ADSR5- our bucket list. So here is my layout:

Also she has two other new products this week - both are sets of glitter styles for CU/personal use. They include both the style sets for Photoshop 7.0 and above, as well as individual 8x8 sheets of glitter saved in PNG format, for those who can't use the styles. Best of all, the downloads are divided according to sheets and styles, so you can choose to download only what you need or will use!

First up is a set of glitters that coordinate with her brand new collab, Daisy Crazy glitter styles:

And then, she also loaded a coordinating set of glitter styles for Gotta Hug into the store this week!

Here is a coupon code to use on thenew collab kit, Daisy Crazy. But, hurry! It's only good for 20% off the kit until Sunday night. The code is: Crazy4Daisy ENJOY!!!

Now for challenge #8 we were suppose to do a layout with at least 10 elements, tone on tone background paper and it needed to have the word 'someday' either in the title or in the journaling- so here is my layout:
I used Trixie Scraps- Hot for Teacher.


ADSR 5 Layouts

I am WAY behind on posting these. I just realized that I haven't posted since the first 2 challenges and we are working on #7 and #8 this week. So here are my layouts:

Challenge #3- One focal photo with selective coloring, 20 or more words of journaling with possible highlights, at least one date element!

(Kit By: Laurie's Scraps- Rub a Dub Dub)

Challenge #4: Make one Artist Trading Card on the theme "The One I Love." Then each racer will make one trading card honoring their ADSR teammate. These are suppose to be fun, light hearted, and corky. We then had to combine them into one layout to present- so here you go.

(We used kits by: Trixie Scraps- 'Gotta Hug' and Stash Happy- 'Move Along')

Challenge #5: We had to incorperate chocolate into our layout and use at least 6 of the 10 elements they listed. I used- an alpha, 2 papers (or more), a frame, button, ribbon, a staple and a tag.

(Kit By: Laurie's Scraps- 'Birthday Fun')

Now challenge #6 was a road block, so only person had to do it. Kris so graciously did it for our team. Check her blog for the layout. I have finished both #7 and #8, but one was made with a new kit coming out tomorrow, so check back tomorrow for the kit release and the layout. :)
