New Template Set

WM [squared] Designs has a brand new template set out this week. I have always loved her templates, so I was very excited to get to play with them. My month guest spot is almost over and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with Wendy's new releases this month. It has be wonderful.
Elements Included - V.3
Actual elements included on the templates, just recolor them & go!
Here is my layout:
(I also used WM [squared] 'Turkey and Stuffing' for this layout.)

She is also releasing a bundle of date stamps that have previously been released, just now all bundled together for a great price!
Simply Dated - Bundle III
4 great date elements, all in one bundle!

Now as much as I love Wendy's templates, I also very much love Laurie's Scraps templates too. She is releasing a new set this weeks as well, but I just didn't get the chance to play with them. I wanted to show them to you though, because they are a great addition for your template stash.

Have a wonderful week and happy scrapping!

Two New Kits!!

Trixie Scraps has two new kits that I have to show you- they are some of my favorites yet!! Of course you can't go wrong when Tracy and Sarah Bennett team up together- remember Sunday Afternoon? Well they just released a new kit called Old Glory. With Independence Day coming up here in the U.S., they decided on an old fashioned Americana theme and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. There is a whole bundle of new goodies here - check out Old Glory:

Here is my layout from last 4th of July when we were in Utah visiting my husbands grandmother.

Next, is a fun kit that was inspired by Tracy's awesome fans! Last month, on the scrap stars blog we offered up a choice of swatches for everyone to vote for, then she took suggestions for the theme. I am so happy to introduce My Summer Garden:

She just couldn't stop playing with this one either, so she made an accompanying mini kit. For a limited time, you can purchase the bundle and get them together for the same price as the kit alone!

Monster of a KIT!

I LOVE this new kit by Laurie's Scraps. She recently went on a vacation to Disneyland and so her kits are 'Disney' themed. Her new one today is themed after Monsters Inc. This is 'Monsters in my Closet':

Here is my layout:

Now Laurie also has a little something for you on her blog- be sure to check it out!!


New Kit x2

Graham Like the Cracker is re-releasing a very fun BOY kit today at ScrapMatters. I really enjoyed playing with 'Junior' and I am sure that you will to.

Here is my layout:

New Kit

Can I just say that I LOVE wm [squared] designs?! I am LOVING being a guest this month for her and playing with some of her new stuff. This week she celebrated a birthday and had a major sale. Did you pick up some fun stuff? Her team put together a fun template blog train and I got to participate! (see the post below) I hope you all rode the train and picked up some fun new templates to help with your scrapping. Wendy's new kit this week is AMAZING! Here is 'It's My Party':the Bundle-

She also released a new date element pack: Simply Dated- V.10
I really like how my layout turned out- these are some pictures I took at my friends surprise birthday dinner two years ago:


Blog Train- Choo Choo

I hope you are all LOVING the blog train!! So my favorite birthday... I would have to say that the birthday I just celebrated in April was probably one of my best birthdays yet. My husband took the day off work, I went and got a pedicure in the morning and did a little shopping. Then we grabbed a quick small lunch. Went home and hung out for a bit until we picked up the babysitter. He then took me to a 'fancy' place for dinner and I had the best steak ever! It was super early so we just went to another store for a bit until he told me that he had another plan, so we needed to get moving. We were driving and all I kept saying was why are we going home? We got about a mile from home when he pulled into Dairy Queen and surprised me with several friends. He tried to tell me that we were going to DQ for dessert, even though I was not hungry at all after my huge dinner. I was unbelievably surprised. I have been married almost 10 years and my husband has never really surprised me. It was so fun to finish the night with friends and some of my family who came. It was really the best yet!!

Now my template was from a speed scrap that I did and I really like how the layout turned out, so I made it into my template for you. I hope you enjoy!

I'm going to start popping in when Tracy isn't looking and picking a Trixie Scraps kit to discount for you all. I'm going to call it "Lindsey's Picks." I think it has a nice ring to it...don't you?
And, hey, why not start TODAY!!

This time around, I picked Work It. Around here, we're all busy getting ready for swimsuit season. We're working it! This is such a perfect kit to document that journey from flab to FAB!
Pick it up HERE for (PLEASE don't tell Tracy) 50% OFF!!!

I don't know how long I can keep it discounted before she finds out, but I'm pretty sure 3 days is about all the time we'll get for this. So, make sure you nab it by this Saturday, June 12.
