Motorin' CU Templates

Preview linked to the store!

Scraps by Andrea has a new CU product in her STS store - a set of templates to make some cute cars! She asked all of us on her CT to use the templates to make a few elements. Visit her blog to get linked to the rest of the CT's blogs and get the whole set. Here are the ones I made. Click the preview to download:

Rainy Days & Rainbows LOs & QP

Nibbles Skribbles and JW-Digiscraps have teamed up to bring you an awesome collab! But this isn't your ordinary collab kit. What they've done is each made 2 mini-kits! The whole thing is called "Rainy Days and Rainbows" and half of it is being offered on their blogs for free. The other half you can pick up in the Stuff to Scrap Store.

It's slightly confusing where each part is at, but I think that Nibbles Skribbles has her Rainy Days mini-kit available for download on her blog this week and JW-Digiscraps has her And Rainbows mini-kit on her blog this week. And that would put the other 2 mini-kit's in the STS Store for purchase! Regardless, just be sure to hit both their blogs and the store so get all 4 parts and any of the add-ons you want!

Here are my layouts that I created with each mini-kit. I also used the cardstock add-on that is also available in the store:


And you can't leave empty handed, can you? Here is one of my layouts turned into a quickpage for you. Click the preview to download:

10,000 Hits Celebration - Threebie Freebie

I've had 10,000 hits to my blog so it's time to
Thank You to everyone who has visited my blog, read my posts, enjoyed my freebies, and taken the time to leave me a comment or send an email. I have so much fun sharing my creations with everyone!

Over the past couple weeks, I've been making a few things here and there. Not really designing, as I don't think I'm cut out for that (at least not full time or with any regularity), but things I want and use. Often as I travel around scrapland, I see things I'd love to have, but can't buy due to my very limited crafting allowance. So I take the idea and make my own version. I've decided to give these things away to all my digi-scrap friends to commemorate my blog reaching 10,000 hits!

I have THREE freebies for everyone today!

First, I have a set of two Floral Grunge Photomasks. The last set I offered were very popular so I've made a few more. Click the preview to download:


Second, I've made some 12x12 page borders. As you can see in the preview they work well for photos, but my original intention was to use them on background papers. This set of 4 has the words "Memories", "Family", "Cherish", and "Remember". Click the preview to download:


And finally I'm giving away this set of Date Rub-Ons. I love using neat things to date my layouts! I will probably be making more that are along this same idea, so look for that sometime in the future. Click the preview to download:


If you're wondering how I cut the day and year out of it, it's very simple. I use PSE so I hope those who use a different program can figure out how to do it in different software. What I do is put a text layer on top of the rub-on and type my day. Move it so it's centered in the top square. Then do the same for the year, but move it to the bottom square. Then I merge just those two layers together and then CTRL+Click on the layer icon to get a selection outline around the day & year. Click onto the rub-on layer, hit delete, and trash the day & year layer to reveal the cut-out on the rub-on. Be sure to de-select (CTRL+D) before doing anything else! Oh, and if you want to use the same font - it's Franklin Gothic Heavy.

Scraps by Andrea is releasing "Dino-Star!" today and it's such a cute kit for dino loving kids! My son is still much too young to even comprehend what a dinosaur is but the kit still works wonderfully for any kind of pictures. Here's some inspiration:

Oh so pretty!

I have been wanting to change the look of my blog for a while and finally got a chance to work on it recently. What do you think? I like it a lot. The old one was nice but this one makes me feel much more serene and peaceful. So those of you who might read my blog from an RSS reader should pop on over and take a quick peek! My blog is coming up on 10,000 hits (at least according to my counter) and you never know what I might do to celebrate! *wink, wink*

Simple Pleasures LOs & QP

Preview linked to store!

This week Scraps by Andrea has another great multi-purpose kit. The doodle is super cute and the bead scatter is awesome! Here are a couple layouts I've done with this kit. Both layouts are for challenges over at the Stuff to Scrap Forum. If you haven't checked them out, come one over & join in the fun. All challenges award points towards a $5.00 coupon!

This was done for the font challenge using a font called "Sunday Morning Garage Sale".


And this layout was done for the Word of the Week Challenge. The word was "Shadow". The quote says "Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadow. -Helen Keller"


I thought this was the better of the two layouts, so I've made it into a quickpage! Hope you enjoy it! Click the preview to download:
