Do It Yourself

Have you seen the newest fad in scrapping? It's pennants! And they are SO cool! Well, Chelle has come up with a DIY Pennant, that you can use to match ANY kit!

This is it:

I used it with her Make A Splash kit to create these LOs:

Which kit will you use to creat a pennant on your LO? Leave me a comment, and I'll come by your gallery...who knows I might even give you a RAK!

Woot! for Me!

Yes! Woot!
I've been asked to be on the Creative Team for LawTeeDa Designs by Christa Law. She has such fun designs!

She has a new release coming out on Friday, so I can't reveal anything until then... You can check out her blog, for her lastest kits...they are so fun!

I'll be back later to reveal her new kit and my LOs with it.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

Earlier, I told you about Chelle's new kit called On The Trail...and I showed you my LOs with that kit...since them, I've found out she has another camping kit called Let's Camp S'more (isn't that a cute name?!)
Here is the kit preview:

Well, I did a LO with that kit too... here's the full spread:

I had to add a flower for modesty's sake... this is the left side:

and the right:

I'm really enjoying creating for Chelle! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Knights of the Realm

Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn't, but on my homeschool blog back in March, I blogged about my son's 6th birthday. The day was a tremendous success! The boys had so much fun. Well, since then, the photos have just been sitting on my computer waiting. Waiting for the perfect kit to scrap them with.
Well, I found it! It's been on my wish list at Scrap Matters since iNSD (inter-National Scrapbooking Day). Now that Chelle has asked me to be a guest Creative Team member, I get to play with her goodies! One is the Dragons kit...oh boy!
Here are the layouts I created to tell the story of my son's party:

Here is the full kit:

Chelle also has a printable party supplies if you want to have your own dragon party! And really, totally cool, word art add-on for the kit, too!

If you'd like a sample of the kit, head on over to Chelle's blog, and grab the freebie she has there just waiting for you to snag it...and don't forget to leave some love!

On The Trail...

Of a fantastic camping kit! And guess what? I found it! Yes, I's at Scrap Matters, and it's by Chelle's Creations.

I was doing a Speed Scrap yesterday afternoon at Scrap Matters and Chelle was there with me. She had advertised a sneak peek of her new camping kit called On The Trail, and I had fallen in LOVE with it! SO I asked (very spontaneous, like) "Hey, Chelle, you don't happen to need a guest CT member, do you?" know what she said, or I wouldn't be blogging about it! lol Yeppers, she said Sure! I'm so excited to guest CT for her, I can't even begin to tell you! She has so many wonderfully terrific kits...just watch right here, and I'll show you!

Okay...I know you are dying to see the here you go:

Isn't it great?! I love it...I can't wait to scrap more with it, since we go camping every year...and this year we have a seasonal! Yipee! However, I had to contain myself as I am working through my ds6's first year, and I don't want to get side tracked! So he was not quite 5 months old the first time we took him are his camping pages:



Oh! I almost forgot...I also used these really cool Cutting Edge templates to "cut" the kraft paper sorta kinda fancy's hard to see, but you know those scissors that cut fancy lines? These templates do that for you! How cool is that?

And I used (on the right side page) a special date element, also by Chelle. These are so very neat! They look like felt with hand stitching...very primitive/folk artsy...right up my alley! Here's the preview:

Clicking on the image will take you right to Chelle's shop where those are located.

I think you'd love scrapping YOUR camping photos with this kit (and other goodies), too!

I'm Back!

I'm not designing, but I am scrapping...and I've just nailed a guest spot on a great designer's team! I'm SO super excited!

First, though, I have to tell you about this awesome kit by Happy Scrap Girl!
She calls it "Berry-licious", I call it wonderful!

Here is a preview of the kit:

Isn't it fantabulous??? You can get it in her Scrap Matters store! She offers it in a bundle with terrific word bits and alphas to save you money, but you can also purchase it as a stand alone kit (it includes the big alpha I used to write 'Special' in my title. Why not go grab it now!

This is the double page I did with it:

Here is a bigger view of each side of the LO (left):

and right:

Since I love strawberries, I think this is a fabulous kit! For a long time we had a small strawberry patch in the backyard, and I have lots of strawberry picking photos! The patch is no longer there, but I plan on taking the kids this week to pick at a local farm! How about you go pickin'?
