Who's got a few photos?!?

1
It was so nice to have that three day weekend and get away for a long weekend. And it was even nicer that it made this week a little shorter! Funny how that works, eh? This week has been a busy and emotional one. My little baby 'graduated' from preschool. He had a little concert were his class sang some songs, then each child got to tell there aspiration using a microphone. (a very big deal for a 4 year old) I now know that he wants to be a fireman when he grows up. I'm just so proud!!

I have a pack of templates for you this week. Hopefully these will help you out for those events where you have LOTS of photos. It usually happens that those are the pictures that I DREAD scrapping the most. You know, holidays pics or an event were you have dozens of photos and its always so hard to pick and chose which photos to use and which to leave out. Well, I just go crazy if I have to leave a good photo out. So when I do have tons of pictures to use, I do layouts that cram TONS of photos in, yet still have that timeless/classic look. These templates are inspired by layouts I've done that people have requested...and here they are.

I think it is SO fun to mix black and white photos in with colored photos, or crop some of your picture to help tell the story (maybe a face or clothing or landscape) So know matter what template or layout you are doing...feel free to mix it up a little!! Hope you like them!

I was amazed how different everyone could make these, they are fantastic!!

That's all folks!!! Happy scrapping!

Snipettes!! Get your Snipettes!!

7
TGIF!! Yes, the Friday of Memorial Weekend..even better!!
Hope you all have fun plans for the three day holiday weekend. I'm heading up north for the weekend and hoping for weather over 50 degrees. (crossing my fingers) Usually it is frigid and windy up north. But we still always manage to have a good time just the same.

Just wait till you see what I have today!! I'm excited to show!
I'm calling them "snipettes". Which are little words or phrases that are "snipped" out. They work so easy to help tell your story and are so fun to play around with!!

There are many different ways you can use them:;

1) bunch them as a focal points of your layout
2) use just one to tell the story
3) scatter messages around on your page

I am SO excited to show you what I have out this week!! YAY!! I've been working on this for months and hope that you guys love it as much as I do!! I'm sure it's obvious what my inspiration was in creating this kit! HA HA!! The bright and fun colors work for so many layouts. This kit is seriously HUGE, I couldn't stop... I was like the energizer bunny!! There are 19papers, 2 alphas and over 78 elements in this kit!!! OK, OK I'll stop talking and get on with the show.

Enjoy the Moment

Aren't they all SO awesome?!?


Onto your freebie....
I made "Enjoy the Moment" kit to be a very classic, colorfully designed kit... but I wanted to make something that is especially for us Disney-lovers too. I loved all of the detail of things at Disney. You know... like those awesome Mickey-eared balloons or the fence outside Mickey's house. So here is my version of some of those things. This is a FREE add-on that works perfect with the main kit, but made with more "magic" in mind.

Hawaiian Happy Hour.

I made this as a 12x12 quickpage, so you can have the choice to use it as a 12x12 or 8x8 layout!
(If you'd like to keep the multiple pictures in your quickpage, just use your rectangle shape
for the pictures and us them as clipping masks)

my first kit as an "offical" designer!!

10
I am so excited to announce that I will be selling at ScrapMatters!!
Here is my first kit, "So This is Love".

"so this is love"

Photobucket

Having just come back from Disney, I was SO inspired by our experiences. We were able to go into the Magic Kingdom, before the park opened. Talk about AMAZING to walk the empty streets of Main Street USA, on our way to dine in Cinderella's castle. It was a memory of a lifetime!!

This kit is good for any "Cinderella moments" that you have.
But it would be perfect for many more moments as well.

AND... there is a "word art pack" too,






























I have a freebie at the end of the post!!
Make sure you read all the way down to pick it up!

I couldn't help myself... I had to start scrapping my magical moments:

Here are some layouts that myself and some friends have done for inspiration:

Whew!! Are these fantastic?!? WOW!!


OK...Anyone want a freebie?? Here you go!!

Enjoy!!!

Have a super great NSD weekend!! I'm gearing up for some shopping myself!
