New Templates and Romantic Spring extras!

This week I have "the rest of the story," LOL.  Or the rest of the collection :)  As they say, the best-laid plans often go awry, and mine did, but no matter, here it is!

Two sets of templates - a photo tray set with pocket-sized openings (and there's a coordinating set of pocket cards, too!), and a pretty, sweet, and romantic set that still manages to sneak in multiple photos.  Then there's a set of pretty patterned papers that coordinate with the whole shebang.

Love this beautiful layout from Bea at the Digichick - it's sweetly perfect!

You can purchase the add-ons together in the bundle for extra savings, and I've held over the sale prices on the original bundle, too.
You can  visit my shop HERE, and until next time, happy scrapping!

Do you love templates?

Hi there!

My name is Julie Southern, and I am the designer behind Sherwood Studio Digital Designs at The Digichick. I'm looking for some creative folks to work with my kits and templates. It's possible that my templates are a bit different than many, so I'm looking for the ability to think "outside the box" and use them for a jumping off place. If you like that challenge, then here's your chance to shine - download the sample template tray and just have fun! Submit your entry (600x600, 72 ppi) to with "CT Call" in the subject line. Be sure to include some basic information about yourself, too:

1) Program(s) you use
2) A link to your favorite gallery
3) Other teams you're on (if any)

About my Requirements - at least two layouts per month, posting in The Digichick gallery and Facebook group. Social media support ("like" my posts, LOL). Laugh at my jokes. Pat my head when I show you sneak peeks of the kit in progress. It's an easy-going team 

Oh, and if you decide that you just want the template, go for it  It's shiny!

Hashtags.  If you spend anytime at all on social media, you know what they are, whether you use them or not.  I have a tendency to use them to be silly more than to categorize my post or photo for others to find (yes, it's all about me, LOL).  However, I found myself making a title using a hashtag, and it got me to thinking that a set of words would be handy.  And then when I made the set of words, I thought, Hmmm.  A set of pocket cards could be handy.  And when I made the set of... well, you can see how it went.  Sort of like giving a mouse a cookie and for sure he's gonna want a glass of milk :)

So, this is where the #cookie went.

Those led to this:

(I might add that at this point, I sort of wondered if I was crazy.  I mean, black and white for a kit? )

Last, I made a set of templates that reflect the original scrapping event that required the hashtag title in the first place:

I have a sneaking suspicion that some of my creative team thought I was a little crazy, too.  But they were good sports and played along :)  And I think maybe were a little surprised by the results!

I love the way both color and black and white photos work with the neutrals of the kit, but you can always grab a spot of color from another kit if you want something to pop ;)  (sort of ironic that I am so color driven and yet there is none here, right?)

Hashtag #AndAllTheGoodies  will be on sale through Monday, so grab some photos and #ScrapLikeCrazy!

True Love

I'm not going to lie.  I have sort of a quirky non-literal approach to scrapbooking, probably because I am more motivated by color than theme.    And when I saw this pretty renaissance lady graphic, I thought I wanted to make her a kit, LOL.  I loved the colors, loved the look.  And then, because I'm trying to get better at making things that non-quirky folks can use, too, I spent some time thinking about what sort of kit she would fit into.  And Valentine's Day was the answer.  Because what is more romantic than the Knight in Shining Armor and his Fair Maiden?

Turns out it's also a really good kit for renaissance fairs and halloween costumes, LOL.  Lots of hearts and castles and beautiful colors really have very few scrapping limits.

This set of templates is a little out of the ordinary, as all of the "photo" spots are also the same size as Pocket cards - 3x4, 4x4, and 6x4.  This makes it easy to pop in one of the cards if you don't have enough photos.  There are a variety of dimensional cards in the matching pack, or just use those spots for cards you already have and want to use :)  (I called it "gridless" because they aren't in a rigid grid style layout.  I waivered on the title, because it sounds kind of grim, LOL.  But it said what I wanted to say so I left it ;)

I created a couple of layouts this week with Fair Maiden.  I think it's ironic that neither one of them actually uses the pretty lady, LOL:

The second layout was difficult, because I actually had to put my own picture on it (and THREE TIMES no less!)  But my husband really is my knight in shining armor and I wanted to document that, and so there you have it.  

I hope this inspires you to scrap tales of valor and happy times for yourself :)  Fair Maiden (and all of the pieces/parts) will be at the introductory sale price through Monday at my Digichick shop.  'Til next time, happy scrapping!

One of my all-time favorites returns to my studio this week:

Since my project for the year is to use the Project Life app on my phone/tablet to get caught up with my backlog of photos, I created a new set to match this collection.  I'm really loving the dimensional look!

There are some great templates that go along with the set, too.  I've used this kit often for my own scrapping, and this is one I did with my "Grand-dog" and the Celestial photo trays:

You can pick up just the new cards, or if you are missing this beauty in your stash you can get the big money-saving bundle; all at the introductory sale price through Monday.
