Speed Scrap Alert


I'm posting today to tell you about the newest kit from one of my favorite designers, Eva Marina Scraps. She just makes some of the most awesome kits around! She just released "Celebrate" in time for the 4th of July, but if you are Canadian it also has stuff for you too! There are also a lot of neutral papers and elements which makes this kit great for any event. Kit includes 14 12x12 in./300 ppi papers, 48 elements and 3 full alphas!

Take a look at this preview and then click to visit her store at Stuff to Scrap to pick it up while it's on sale 30% off!

Rhinestone Cowgirl Layout & Freebie

Today The Scrappy Kat is releasing Rhinestone Cowgirl straight to the Stuff to Scrap store!

Such a cute kit & I wish I had some pictures of a little girl riding a horse, but I don't! I did make a very sweet layout though. Be sure to check out Kat's blog to see some of the other CT member's layouts.

As I promised I have a freebie for you today, but it's not a quick page like usual...this time we're trying something new & I've made a cluster frame for you. The download has both an un-shadowed & shadowed version. I've heard there are programs that people use that don't have the ability to add shadows so I wanted to give those who use that kind of software an option!

Mint Chocolate

No, not the ice cream flavor (but that is one of my favorites)...It's a new kit from Flower Scraps!

Just as the name says, this kit is full of chocolat browns and mint greens so that makes it great for everyone...young, old, male or female. It's got 14 Papers, 31 elements & an alpha!! And as a bonus it sounds like it's going to be the kit for the July QP Exchange at Stuff to Scrap!

Speed Scrap Alert

There is a Speed Scrap this weekend on Saturday, June 27th at 5PM Pacific! I hope you can join in the fun. I'm going to try to be there, but Saturday evenings are tough for me.

$2.00 Tuesdays are starting at STS

I just found out that Stuff to Scrap is starting to have $2.00 Tuesdays. A few designers will put a couple things in the $2.00 section and they will be that price until the next Tuesday when different designers put new things up for sale! Sound pretty awesome to me, and if you combine those prices with the 30% off sale this weekend you will be getting some stuff for practically nothing! Here's the flyer with all the details:

Funky Town Revamped LOs & QP

This is Scraps by Andrea's new release called Funky Town Revamped. No, I didn't name it! It was a freebie on her blog a while ago and she's re-done it to make it better and is now available for purchase at Stuff to Scrap. Check out some of my layouts I did and you can visit the CT blog to see more!

The Word Art and Alpha in the above layout are not included with this kit.

Here's a quick page from one of my layouts:


Digi-Designs by Nicole has a wonderful kit available called Dreamin'....It looks like such a fun kit and has some special elements for everyone's favorite mouse. Yep, it's got a Disney theme going and would be perfect for scrapping your Disney Theme Park Pictures. But I'm sure it could be used for non-Disney pictures too, which is what I will do with it since my son isn't old enough to go to Disneyland....yet!

Here's the preview & it's linked to the store at Stuff to Scrap for purchase!

Template Freebie FYI

Hey everyone! I just got an email from MandaK asking me to spread the word about her designer spotlight at! I'd never even heard of this site so I'm happy just to have been informed of a really cool place, but as a bonus MandaK is giving away 2 freebie templates over the next few days. So go grab the first one and then visit again on Wednesday for the second one. Here's a preview of the first one and it's linked!

Little Pirate LOs & QP

Preview is linked to the store!

Little Pirate is another one of the fabulous theme kits from Scraps by Andrea. A most excellent choice for all the pictures of the pirates in your life, whether they be girl or boy! There are even a few non-pirate specific things to make a few layouts not having to do with all things pirates!

And to give you a little taste of the pirate-y goodness, here is a quick page!

Lil Monsters LOs & QP

Click preview to go to store for purchase!

I kinda went out of order and did More Lil' Monsters first, so I'm now introducing Lil' Monsters by Scraps by Andrea!! This one is similar to More Lil' Monsters but is a bit more girly with pink & purple. Once I started using this kit I got on a roll and whipped these 2 layouts out in no time. Andrea's kits make it easy. Check out my pages:

And I just loved this layout so much that I turned it into a quick page for you! Have fun...

Welcome to the Jungle LOs & QP

Click preview to go to store for purchase!

Welcome to the Jungle is another really cute kit from Scraps by Andrea. It has a zoo theme to it with some very nice animal elements. Here are a few layouts I did using this kit.

I've turned this one into a quick page...Enjoy!

Blog Award Time!

Janice has given me a blog award. So very thoughtful & kind...You may remember I did a one-kit CT call for her Plum Paradise kit. She was fabulous to work with.

Here are the rules for this award:

  1. Put the award on your blog.
  2. Include a link to the person who gave you the award.
  3. Nominate 7 or more blogs (always hard to do)
  4. Leave a message on their blog letting them know they have an award on your blog.
So here are my 7 nominations. The 2 designers who I CT for, along with some of my fellow CT members! All great women & super talented too!

My Father the Fisherman LOs & QP Freebie

Scraps by Andrea's newest release is called My Father the Fisherman, but don't let the name fool you. It can always be used for non-fishing layouts. I did one to show both directions you can take this kit! I've also made one into a quick page for you! As always you can pick this up at the Stuff to Scrap Store!

Easy Living LOs & QP

Look at this, another super cute kit from Scraps by Andrea! Easy Living is full of fun doodles, bright colors & plenty of cute elements makes which make it work well for pictures of all types and events. Here are a few layouts I did using this great kit! The alpha sets I used are not a part of the kit though.

Both of these pages were done for some of the Stuff to Scrap Forum Challenges. You can get points towards a $5.00 coupon just for scrappin'!!
