Okay! I think that’s it for today’s sales! One other thing that I’d like to remind you about is the post here where I told you about the fundraiser for Habitat For Humanity Canada, there is still a few days to help the team meet their fundraising goal by July 6th! You can also check out there page here:

I’m also letting you know that I have a few fun things in the works for all my lovely readers, I hope to be able to make that announcement Monday! I’m excited! Until then, don’t forget that tomorrow is “Friday Faves” and Saturday I’ll be sharing my layout for This Scrapper’s Got Talent! Unfortunately, I was eliminated after last weeks round but I’m continuing to play along to stretch my creative muscles! Now go shop some sales today and everyone have a great 4th of July! As always…



New Release Thursday – June 20, 2013

It’s nice to see everyone again! Today is “New Release Thursday” and I have a few fun things to share with you today! I’ve got new releases from ChrissyW Digital and Scraps by Missy with layouts to show you and a small bit about a new release from M&M Designs! I also have a little something at the end to share so stick around!

First up are two releases from ChrissyW Digital, “Sample Pack 11” and “To The Left“. Both sets come in 12″x12″ and 8.5″x11” sizes and are on sale for 30% off through Sunday! This is a preview of “Sample Pack 11” and a layout I made with it:

“Disney Or Bust”

Kit: “Are We There Yet” by Scraps by Missy (Releases 6/21)

I haven’t made a layout with this set yet but if you check out her Facebook page or the product description, you will see plenty of wonderful inspiration there! I’m sure I will be using one of these in the near future though, I really like the one with all the circles!

Next up is “Are We There Yet” from Scraps by Missy. This kit actually releases tomorrow at Stuff To Scrap but here’s a look at it:

Are We There Yet by Scraps by Missy

Wait? Does that kit look familiar? Why yes, I used it on the layout above! Scroll back and check it out, I’ll wait… isn’t that an awesome kit? It worked perfectly to scrap my picture of the entrance to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. It was such a rainy day when we arrived, and it didn’t stop raining for three days! Try telling two little kids that they have to wait even longer to see Mickey Mouse, we almost had a mutiny on our hands!

The last release, “Paper Crazy V3” comes from M&M Designs. As usual, you get four templates in this set and it’s only $4! I don’t have a layout for this one either (since I’m on her Project Life team) but there are plenty of inspirational pictures up on her Facebook Page! Take a look:

M&M Designs also has “Project Life Journal Card V5” and “Paper Crazy V2” on sale for 50% off! That’s $2 a pack or $0.50 for each template, it’s a steal and it won’t last much longer!

That’s it for my digital new releases for today but if anyone’s still around, I wanted to share this “new release” picture with you:

My Project Life additions

I know this isn’t the best picture (inside, phone picture, etc) but I wanted to share some of the new Project Life Products I came home with yesterday! Want the run down of everything in the picture? What I picked up:

Project Life (check their website for where to order/stores)
Kraft Core
Honey Core
Kraft Album (blue/green)
Honey Album (multicolored chevron)
Big Variety Pack Photo Protectors
Grid 3×4 cards
Grid 4×6 cards

Thickers (from American Crafts)

K&Co Alpha (K&Company)
Handmade Doodle

Everything was picked up from my local Michael’s Craft Store (and of course coupons were used, they haven’t excluded Project Life… yet). These products aren’t even on their website yet! I have to admit, when I called them in the morning, the person I spoke with had no idea what Project Life was or if they had it in stock. So when I entered the store, I didn’t expect to find any products out yet… Lo and behold, I found this about five aisles down in the Scrapbooking section:

Project Life at my Michael’s Store

As you can see, they only have four core kits here right now (Honey, Midnight, Cinnamon, and Kraft) but I’m excited to be able to get my page protectors locally now! Anyway, I wanted to share my excitement with you! Keep watch here because I think some of the products I picked up will make an appearance here next Wednesday for “Project Life Wednesday”! I hope you enjoyed today’s post and as always…


New Release Thursday – June 13, 2013

Welcome back, it’s New Release Thursday! Today there are releases from ChrissyW Digital and Polka Dot Pixels that I want to share. In this post, the photos are linked to the products in TheDigiChick shop. First up are two sets of  4×12 Paper Cutter Strips from ChrissyW Digital:

4×12 Paper Cutter Strips/Mask – Set 1

I used the square strip mask and clipped 48 photos onto it! I wouldn’t have used any of them as “feature” photos but I liked the action shots. This way I can incorporate them in a fun way! Each small square will end up being about an inch square when this page is printed out in 12”x12” size, I think that’s a perfect size to show a little action to compliment the large black and white “feature” picture!

Papers: Cardstock Solids – Set #2 by ChrissyW Digital
Elements: Oh Boy by Scraps by Missy

4×12 Paper Cutter Strips/Masks – Set 2

In this layout, I used the cloud strip as an overlay on the blue polka dot paper. I used two layers of the cutter strip. The bottom layer I used a pastel effect to give the clouds a light blue and shaded look. On the top cloud layer I used a glass effect to give the look of dimension, almost like a dimensional sticker you find for paper scrapbook pages. It really adds character to the layout!

Kit: Down by the Shore by Scraps by Missy

The other new release I’d like to share is a kit by Polka Dot Pixels called “Classified”. It’s school themed which makes it perfect for end of the school year pictures! I love the vintage look of this kit, it really makes my layout feel special, take a look:

I don’t have any “traditional school” pictures but I used some from a project we did to learn about rainbows.

I hope you like using these templates and kit as much as I do! Leave me a link if you use them,  I’d love to see what you make too!


New Release Thursday – June 6, 2013

Hey there! I’m glad you decided to drop by again! Today I have some new releases to share with you. Two of the designers that I CT for release their products on Thursday so it seemed logical to post about new releases on… Thursday!

First up is a CU (commercial use) product from Scraps by Missy called “CU Patts Vol 1” and you can get it over at Stuff to Scrap. It will go up in the store tomorrow (6/7/13) and will be 30% off from 6/7/13 to 6/13/13. There are four different pattern overlays in the set to help you make your own patterned paper to match your favorite kits! I can’t tell you how simple these overlays are to use, it only took me about five minuets to make all four papers! Seriously! Take a peek:

Next up is a big release from ChrissyW Digital. First up is a pack of Facebook timeline cover templates called “Cover Up Templates”, they are 30% off right now and you can pick up over at TheDigiChick. I’ve taken the easy way out on my personal Facebook page and have just posed a picture as my cover photo. These templates make me want to take the time to create a new cover photo that’s more creative! The sample cover photos I made went together easily, that’s why I really love her templates! I don’t have to agonize over what to put where and my layouts turnout looking great! Take a look at the template pack and what I made with them:

Also releasing from ChrissyW Digital today is “Sample Pack 10”  and it’s also available in a 8.5″x11″ size! Both sets are 30% off and can be found at TheDigiChick. I love the variety in this set. I ended up using one large picture as a background instead of a paper and I think it turned out great! The templates are simple and uncluttered, just my style. Take a look:

The last release from ChrissyW Digital today is the kit “Spring At Last” over at TheDigiChick. This kit has coordinating papers, elements and alpha, an extra button alpha, extra papers and quick pages! You can also pick them up all together in the Entire Collection pack! Guess what, all of these pieces are 30% too! Wow! I used one of the QP (quick pages) along with the button alpha to create a page about the “Fairy Meet & Greet” we did this past month at Disney World. I ended up using the coordinating button stitches in each button of every, single, letter… I think it was worth it though! Check out all these sets:

I also want to share another release from earlier in the week. This one is from M&M Designs and it’s a really nice pocket page style template called “Project Life Journal Cards V3” and you can find it at Gotta Pixel for just $4! That’s only $1 per template! I really love these because you can make this type of template as simple or as complicated as you want!

These templates fit right in with the other pages I use in my Digital Project Life!

M&M Designs also released “Enchanted Eve” on Tuesday. This set is also only $4! I haven’t made a layout with this template yet because I work on the pocket template team but I bet I will pull one of these out soon to scrap some of my photos. I like M&M Designs’ traditional layout templates as they help me work on my clustering skills! I am NOT a natural cluster scrapper! With these templates I know where my flowers and doo-dads should go and about how many I need. You should check out both types of templates from her store. Here’s a picture of “Enchanted Eve”:

Everyone still with me? Good!

That’s all I have for you today but you won’t want to miss tomorrow! I’ve got some of my favorites lined up for you, I’m thinking that Friday’s will become my “Friday Faves”! Come back tomorrow to check it out!
