Two of my favorite kits have returned to my shop this week:


This happy kit is shabby around the edges but bright and cheerful.  In fact, it turned out a bit TOO bright and cheerful for the project I had in mind, so I created a companion kit with the same color palette, but just toned back and less saturated:

There are some nice extras, too:

These were the kits I used to scrap with last week's Webbed Templates:

Have a great week everyone, and stay safe  :)

Get ready for Halloween! Cute Webbed Templates for your little spooks...

Where does the time go?  Here we are half-way through October already!  I hope you are gathering goodies for Halloween (I can't buy the candy yet - I'd have it all eaten by the time tiny little trick-or-treaters grace my porch) and plotting your trick or treat strategy ;)  I have a cute set of templates to tell the story with style.  But they would be equally useful in telling tales about attic treasures, or clearing cobwebs, or any mystery of life ;)

This one is fun because it's an entire "layout in a box" so to speak - there are oodles of papers, some elements, and the layered template all in one.

For more variety there's an independent template pack:

I played with the Layout Starter template this morning to give you an idea of a more sophisticated spooky effect ;)

My technology has conspired against me this week, so I couldn't access any of my ghost town photos, but this gives you the general idea (it would make a cute Halloween decoration, too)

Here's more inspiration from the team (warning - spider photo, LOL!):

I hope you find some inspiration here!

Also back in the shop now is the Home Cookin' collection.  It's at new-release prices so it's a great time to get to work on those Christmas recipe book projects!

You can  visit my new shop HERE, and until next time, happy scrapping!

Abiding in the Vine

Today marks the release of the last of The Faith Project's Fruits of the Spirit collection:  Abiding in the Vine.  This one was nearest and dearest to my heart, because I love the deep rich colors and I love the message, since abiding in the Vine is what brings forth all that desirable fruit!

Those of you who know me understand that on the fairly rare occasions that I create a kit with a specific theme I still try to make the components flexible enough to be used for many purposes, and this kit is no exception.  One of my CT members used it to scrap Disney pictures and she expressed guilt, but I love that she was able to do that!  So no apologies necessary if you want to scrap an outing to a vineyard or a wine date with a friend.  I mean, odds are I will probably scrap my kids' pets with it, anyway, as well as chronicling my faith journey.

As you can see, my romance with Gold is still in full force.  I just loved the richness it lent to the overall picture, and I included a shiny (and unique) alpha in the collection to match some of the word art in the kit.

I love this beautiful example from Kay at The Digichick:

I chose this inspiration piece for you because it features a free template from this month's Template Challenge at TDC.  I'd love to have you pick up the free template and join along with us!  If nothing else, take a look at all the wonderful ideas on how to make the template your own :)

Abiding in the Vine will be at the introductory sale price for a limited time, so take advantage of the sale and create your own beautiful layouts.

Back in the Shop!

One fun thing about re-previewing  products is getting reacquainted with old favorites.  This set definitely qualifies!

The sky is the limit with these display boards - treat them as your digital bulletin board!  You can  find them Here at the introductory sale price, in case you missed them the first time around.  And some quick ideas from my team:

I also have two new commercial use packs in my CU shop - I know some of you like to use them for scrapping:

Until next time, happy scrapping!
