Guest Gig 1

Hello and Happy Sunday friends! I am excited to announce that my friend Victoria of Victoria Feemster Designs is back to designing and right now she's guesting over at Scrap Matters. That means that I get the pleasure of creating some sweet pages with her awesome products!
This week Victoria released a new collaboration kit with the lovely Litabells. 100 Percent Boy is perfect for all the guys in your life both big and small.

Here's my page using this cool kit :)

Victoria also re-released a couple other kits including the gorgeous Luck kit and matching Luck Messy Mats.

Here's my layout using both Luck & Luck Messy Mats :)

I liked creating with this kit so much that I created a cluster frame that you can pick up for FREE over on the VFD blog!

Well that's it from me today.. I'm off to get ready for a double birthday party this afternoon.
Happy Scrapping!!

February Freebie!

Hello friends! I hope everyone's been doing well, I've been doing alright for the most part.. pretty happy and I want to share that happiness with you all by giving you a free template to scrap with. It's the first freebie I've shared in a LONG time and I really hope you enjoy it.

I created a layout for a challenge over at The Lily Pad last month and afterwards decided to turn my page into a template to share on my blog. Here's my page:

I created my page using the Cute and Fun collaboration kit Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss by Pink Reptile Designs & Studio Basic Designs.

I had a lot of fun putting my page together and I hope you will have a lot of fun creating your very own page using the template.

You can download HERE.

Happy Scrapping!!

Something Sweet Saturday

Hello fellow scrappers and friends. So today is Saturday and that means that over at Sweet Shoppe Designs they've released their new goodies YAYY!! Through the end of the month (and hopefully after) I am a guest CT member for Studio Basic Designs and let me tell you Ru is such a sweetheart. I love guesting for her. This week she's put out a few new products. A little something for everyone - scrapping, hybrid and even Project Life! I have a couple pages I scrapped to show off these awesome treats! First up is a Triple Dip (Collab) by Ju Kneipp, Studio Basic Designs and Traci Reed called Favorite Moments.
It's available alone as just the kit (which I used) or as a bundle which is the kit, templates and journal cards!
Here is the page I created using the gorgeous Favorite Moments {Kit}.
I also used a template from Scrapping with Liz's Recyclables 17 pack. The second page I created I used Just A Note {Paper Pack}, Just A Note Journal Cards 3x4, and Just A Note Journal Cards 6x4.
Here's a closer look at the 3 Just A Note products I used by Studio Basic Designs. Just A Note {Paper Pack}
Just A Note {Journal Cards 3x4}
Just A Note {Journal Cards 6x4}.
I also used these other SSD products for my Project Life 2013: Week 1 page. 365 Unscripted: Slip Ins by Traci Reed, Layered Journaling Cards 1: 3x4 by Cindy Schneider as well as Layered Weekly Labels and Journaling Cards also by Cindy Schneider. Addiction: Banners by Studio Basic Designs, Back to Basics:Must Have Papers #1 by Studio Basic and The Tag {Hearts} The Alpha by Studio Basic. The final release of this week from Studio Basic Designs is the Love Coupon Book. The coupon book comes in 2 versions the pre-made version in which the lovely Rebecca Kuchenbecker helped create or the Templates version which is totally customizable by YOU the customer!! Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to play with the coupon book because my printer is out of commission but here's a closer look at the book.
Well, that's it from me this Saturday but I'll be back again soon with some more yummy eye candy. (BTW, I didn't forget about posting the freebies I found around digi land last week, but our house was invaded by the flu bug and I was unable to make it the computer to go searching, sorry.) Until next time, HAPPY SCRAPPING!!!
