Taking a Break


You may have noticed that I haven't been posting for a while. And you may have also noticed that I am no longer CTing for Digi-designs by Nicole and Laurie's Scraps. I have decided to take a break from scrapping for a while. My babies are getting older, and I find that I don't have near as much time to get things done, let alone scrapping! So, as hard as it has been, I have let go of this hobby for now. I hope to get back some day, as it is such a great creative outlet for me.

Thank you to all of you who have followed me. It has been an honor!

Don't Forget!


Just a quick reminder about Laurie's birthday celebration. In addition to great discounts, there are major prizes to be won! Hurry before it's too late! And make sure you stop by the Laurie's Scraps CT Blog and enter to win your favorite of Laurie's kits!(image)

Hit the Books


I'm a little late with this one, but butter late than never, right?!?! I've got a great new kit to show you today, and it's just in time for all those back to school photos. That first day back is such a bittersweet day, so make sure to capture it while it's fresh! Before I show you the kit, I want to show you what I was able to do with it. This is my oldest son - 3rd grade!! {I also have a 5th grader - yikes!!}

Now here is the kit. We got to vote on color schemes for this one, and it just so happens that Nicole went with my favorite! I love the elements, the colors, the flairs. There is just so much good stuff in here!

There are coordinating quick pages, worn cardstocks, and flairs too. Nicole has made a bundle, so you can get everything for the cost of the kit and quick pages! Awesome deal! You won't want to miss out on those extras! This week only, if you buy just the kit, you can get the worn cardstocks or the flairs when you use coupon code HTBAddOn. So, what are you waiting for?? Click here to head to Nicole's shop!

Now don't let all that pink scare you. If you're looking for more boyish colors, this kit's got it! There are papers and elements that can work with boys and girls - whatever suits your fancy. Take a look at the kit - it's 40% off until Sept. 10th as part of Laurie's birthday celebration.

Laurie's Scraps Birthday Celebration


It's a party! Laurie's Scraps is turning two, and she's throwing quite the party to celebrate!!

Summer Living


I can't believe the summer is winding down and the kids will be back to school. So, now is the perfect time to scrap those last few pictures of summer fun! Or, in my case, I'll be scrapping several hundred photos! Digital cameras are so nice, but they can be a real curse too!

Laurie's Scraps has a great new kit for all those summer moments, especially if they involve eating. Here's what I did. This little guy loves watermelon almost as much as he loves candy!

There are a lot of great elements in here. I know, I used a ton - but there are still lots that I didn't use! Here's the entire kit - 20% until next Friday! Click on the preview to shop, and head to Laurie's blog for a freebie!


A Name and a Blessing


Laurie has collaborated with another designer at DSC to create this special and beautiful kit. It is designed with blessings and christenings in mind, but it is versatile enough to scrap lots of pictures with. I am done scrapping my kids' blessing pictures, so I scrapped a photo of my kids and all their cousins. And the kit worked beautifully! Here's what I did.


This kit is full of soft and delicate papers and elements. It would work perfectly for any baby photos you have, and so much more. Here is a look at the entire kit.

This kit is only available at DSC, so head on over and check it out! It will be on sale for 20% off until next Friday! And Laurie has a freebie for you that you can grab on her blog.

Mommy's Hero


Here is another great kit from Laurie's Scraps. It's called Mommy's Hero, and is based on the same general color scheme as Toy Chest, Magic Moments, and Need for Speed. So you can mix and match, or grab them all, to get a kit that's perfect for you!

I think you'll be able to guess the inspiration behind this kit. It's a lot of fun and I can't wait to use it some more! Here's what I did.

So much fun! I love the great colors, and the variety of elements. Here is the preview of the entire kit, which you can get for 20% off until Friday! Click on the preview to shop, and then stop by Laurie's blog for a fun freebie!

**Do you like the alpha(s) from my layout?? Leave me a comment, telling me which is your favorite. If I get at least 15 comments, I will give away the most wanted alpha as a freebie! If I get at least 30 comments, I will give them both away! Tell your friends!**

Sweet Sadie


Nicole has another great kit out today, and I am betting she's glad to have this one done! This is the last kit she is releasing for a while, as she is expecting a baby girl by the end of the month! The kit is called Sweet Sadie, in honor of Nicole's forth-coming baby girl. It is beautiful, with a soft color scheme, and lots of fun baby elements. Here's what I did with it.

Here is a look at the entire kit:
Isn't it beautiful?!?! Just perfect for a new baby! There are bonus papers that come with this kit, and you can also pick up coordinating quick pages and scalloped cardstocks. Just for this week, if you purchase the kit and use coupon code SweetSadieSavings, you can get the cardstocks for FREE or the quick pages for only $1.00!! Click on the preview above to head to Nicole's store! And stop by Nicole's blog for a freebie to go along with the kit.

Camping Oh My!


Here is another great kit from Digi-designs by Nicole, called Camping Oh My! The timing on this one couldn't have been more perfect for me. Our family went camping last week, so I have a TON of pictures to scrap. Here's what I came up with, and it's only the beginning! When I get some time, I'll have a lot more to get done! This is my oldest daughter. I don't know what possessed her to use her smore as lipstick! She's just a cutie!

(image) And here's the entire kit. I love the marshmallows, the fire, the smores...they're just too cute!

Nicole has coordinating quickpages, cardstocks, and even CU camping templates available in her store. This week only if you purchase the kit and use coupon code CampingDiscount, you can get the cardstocks for free OR you can save $1.99 on the coordinating Quick Pages or Camping Templates - that makes them each only $1.00.

Hey everyone - I've got a fun new kit to show you today. It's from Digi-designs by Nicole and is called Making Memories. This is one of those great kits that is useful for a variety of photos and events. The colors are great and the elements are perfect. Here's what I was able to do with this kit.
I absolutely love the combination of green, orange, and brown! The blue is such a beautiful shade and really pops! And I love the butterfly and bird elements. Really, there is so much goodness in here - I couldn't possibly mention all of it! Here is the entire kit, which is 30% off this week! Click to shop!
And this week only, if you purchase the kit and use coupon code MemCardstock you can get the cardstocks for free! Also, be sure to grab the freebie at Nicole's blog!

Magic Moments


My family just returned from a 3-day camping trip today, and while it was so much fun, I am SOOOO glad to be home and clean!! And I can't wait to sleep in my own bed! I took so many pictures - I don't know how I'll ever get them all scrapped!

I just wanted to pop in and let you all know about Laurie's newest kit. It's called Magic Moments and I absolutely LOVE it! I had so much fun playing with it. It's a Mickey Mouse themed kit, but don't walk away if you don't have Mickey Mouse pictures. Laurie works really hard to make her kits as versatile as possible, and this one is no exception. I used it to scrap pictures of my kiddos watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Take a look!

There are so many great elements and word tags in this kit. The fireworks are just awesome! The whole color theme is great too. You won't want to miss this one, especially since it's on sale for 20% off until Friday. Here is a look at the entire kit - click on the preview to head to Laurie's store.

Bugs and Blossoms


Here's a fun new kit from Digi-designs by Nicole called Bugs and Blossoms. Inspired by Nicole's daughter who has a love of bugs, this kit is full of all things buggy!! This kit is versatile enough to scrap your boys and your girls thanks to the perfect balance of bugs and blossoms! Here is my layout for your viewing pleasure.

My favorite parts about this kit are the fun shades of pinks and the cute elements. Just the right touch of whimsy. Here's a look at the entire kit.

New Template Set by Laurie's Scraps


Laurie's Scraps has another great template set for you today, and this one is all about circles. I love circles! But they intimidate me when it comes to scrapping. I can't seem to get my circle pages to look good on my own. That's when you know it's time for a template! This set has an added perk, with text paths surrounding the pictures! I think text paths are a lot of fun, but I scrap with PSE 6, which doesn't allow the making of text paths (but I can use them if someone else makes them).

So, without further ado, here are two pages I created, and then the preview of the templates. They're 20% off this week, so hurry and get them!
