Scrap a weeks worth....

Are you attempting to do Project 365 in the new year?  I thought about it but I've never been good at getting a photo a day, so I would just get discouraged and give up on January 2nd!  LOL  However, I do love looking at P365 layouts and the whole idea of it, so I wanted to help you get a great start on your P365 for twenty 13.

You can scrap a whole weeks worth of photos with A Weeks Worth v.1 from keepscrappin designs.

If you're like me and would be too overwhelmed with the whole P365 thing, these templates can still work for you.  Use them for multi-photo layouts or fill in some of the spots with all the pretty pattern paper you've got.  They make for a fabulous, quick layout.  Just take a look at what the CT girls did with them.

I can't wait to see the layouts you make with these templates.  Please share them in my keepscrappin designs gallery at BrownieScraps, so we can ohh and ahh over them.

Have you heard? BrownieScraps is hosting a scrappin contest in January. It's called the Scrapper and you can win a CT spot. You get 4 free templates and scrap one layout a week. It'll be tons of fun and who knows you may be the Scrapper. Check out the forum here to sign up for all the fun.

Take care and keepscrappin'

Scrap a years worth....

Are you feeling behind on your scrappin like I am?  This time of year is especially crazy with all the preparations for Christmas and that doesn't leave much time for scrappin, but today's new release will help you scrap a years worth of photos quickly and easily. 

A Years Worth v.1 has room for a photo from every month of the year.  Pick your favorite photo from each month, plop it in and add a few papers and ellies and you've got a years worth scrapped!  Okay - I know I'm stretching it a bit, because you won't be totally caught up.  LOL  But you will have one fabulous layout that showcases your year.  Plus you can tell your friends and family that you scrapped a years worth in one night.  Shhhh.... I won't tell your little secret.  hehe

A Years Worth v.1

Here's my years worth layout.

These templates aren't limited to just year in review layouts.  Take a look at the beauties my CT girls made with these.

11.30.12 - Snow Blocks v.1

Sorry I'm slow getting to your inbox today.  I've been running around like crazy trying to get everything ready for Christmas.  We've put up the tree and I've started my Christmas shopping, but still have a ways to go on that.  Why are teenagers so hard to shop for?  But at least my 6-year old is easy to shop for.  She's happy with most any toy.  Enough about me, I know you really want to see what's new this week.... right?  Well, this week's release is a 2-page template pack with lots of blocking so you can show off all the fun papers in your kits or fill some of the blocks in with more photos.  You can decide what works for you and end up with a fabulous 2-page layout everytime.  Not a 2-page scrapper?  No worries, just crop down one of the sides to make a single page layout.

Snow Blocks v.1

I love it's snowy/Christmasy feel, but don't let that fool you.  These templates can be used for any type of layout from Christmas to travel album pages too.  Just take a look at all the fabulous layouts my CT girls created with this pack.  They all used the same template but came up with such different layouts and really let their own personalities shine through.  I just love these gals!  Aren't they fabulous?  *insert me blushing with delight!* lol

Well, that's it for today.  I've got to get back to my designing, before the kids get home from school.  I've got lots of fun things planned for December, so make sure you and your scrappin' friends are subscribed to my newsletter and watch my blog and FB too.  hint, hint!

And She Scraps...

Do you ever need a little down time?  I did this week, so I scrapped, and scrapped and scrapped!  It felt good to just enjoy myself and get some old photos ready to go in my books.  All of these were photos from 2010.  Take a look all the layouts I did.  I'm just a little excited - aren't I?  hehe

Using Full Photo v.3 from keepscrappin designs
Letters from Home from Chelle's Creations
Fireworks from Chelle's Creations

Using One 'n Only v.1 from keepscrappin designs
Inner Punk from Cluster Queen Creations and geniaBeana Scraps

For this last layout I used Chelle's Creations new We Wish You a Merry Christmas Bundle and a template from my new pack this week.  The pack is called Lickity Splits v.1 and it sure was fun to put that layout together lickity split.  It just all fell into place so quickly with the template.  And it turned out quite nicely... if I do say so myself.  =)

Lickity Splits v.1
And I've broken out the last 3 packs of my DSD Grab bag this weekend so you can grab them if you missed them earlier.
 Pick a Number v.4
Well, it's getting late here, so I'm gonna head of to bed.  Don't forgot to check out the keepscrappin designs gallery to see all the wonderful layouts made with these template.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I've been going to hex-tremes

Have you fallen in love with all the hexagons that you see showing up in layouts everywhere?  I have!  So I decided it was time to make some hexagon templates, so we can join in on the hexagon fun too.
They are a little different from my usual style, but I also love them the most right now!  Infact I love them so much that even though I didn't have a lot of free time I scrapped with them.  I just couldn't get enough of them and used Chelle's Creations new Letters from Home kit for this layout.

Also, don't forget to rotate and add or remove photo spots to these templates or make them into 2-page layouts for even more options.  Just take a look at the stunning layouts the CT girls made!
