Happy August

A new month and a new outlook at life. That is my motto for August or at least for this very can certainly throw some curves and my family has had their share for July. So let's start fresh!

As usual I am behind in posting but am catching up today

First of all Charlie from Charlie's Digiscraps has her Storyboard Collection 2 over at Digiridoo. Storyboards are wonderful for both photographers professional or amateur to display their work. I use them all the time in layouts with multiple photos and even use them to do cards. I love them!

Charlie photographer extraordinaire also has a new photography website. It is just gorgeous and Charlie's work is amazing. I wish she wasn't a world away! Go check it out.

Denise from DigiDesigns by Denise is off on a much needed and deserved vacation. But she has left some goodies for us. She has a free alpha to go with her Snap Happy on her blog and a wonderful sale over at Digiridoo and Digiscraps Drive-In.

Sarah from Sarah Barber Design has an exquisite new kit out called A Wonderful LIfe. Filled with richly textured papers and an assortment of wonderful elements including some vintage postcards. You can find it over at Digiridoo.

The layout that I did using Sarah's kit actually was picked by Miss Behaving to be in her Shadow Showcase over at Deviant Scrap for this week. What a honor - Miss Behaving is the absolute Queen of Shadows! The photos in this LO need some work but they are all family photos of my grandfather and grandmother's family. I love vintage photos and hopefully soon will have some time to really do some retouching on them.

Sarah also has some gorgeous CU products at Digiridoo for all you designers. Beautiful stuff!

Mel from Mel Hains' Design has Mother Earth out this week at Scrap that Idea. A wonderful kit filled with soft pastels and adorable doodles.

Renata from Serene by RW is also having a break with visiting family but her store at Inspiration Lane is on sale. Here is a great chance to pick up Renata's stunning kits!

Hummm...that leaves Miss Lou from LouCee's Creations. Lou has a gorgeous new kit coming out any day now so I will back to blog about it soon!

I think that does it!

I would lose my head if it wasn't attached these days.

Renata at Serene by RW has an absolutely stunning kit out called LIttle Diva. I love Renata's new style of designing - it is so clean, simple and just beautiful. You can find this kit over at Inspiration Lane.

Happy Thursday!

Quality Checked

Digiridoo Scraps has a new Quality Control team and the one and only Charlie is part of that. Charlie's work is always just perfect so you can rest assured that anything you buy from Digiridoo will be of the highest quality. Charlie has a few new CU products in the store.

The first are some darling little button flowers. You can find these HERE and they are 50% off until the end of July.

Charlie also has some Shabby Overlays for all you designers out there. Also Quality Checked and you can find them over at Digiridoo.

Denise from DigiDesigns by Denise also has a QC sticker on her new CU product, Tag It Set 1. Love those tags - you can never have enough tags!

LouCee Creations has a gorgeous kit out called Moonshadow. Beautiful kit filled with lovely elements and papers. You can find it over at Digi Scrap Obsession.

I did receive a GSO over at Digi Scrap Obsession using Lou's gorgeous kit Soft Hearted. Love the purples and greens in this kit.

Things have been a bit crazy in my life and I have a lot of scraping to catch up on. Just not enough time in a day.

Say Cheese

Denise from DigiDesigns by Denise has an adorable kit in her stores called Snap Happy. Beautiful kit filled with soft blues, browns and citrus green - and those little cameras are so cute. You can find this kit at Digiridoo Scraps and also Digi Scrap Drive-In.

Denise also has a huge sale going on this weekend at Digiridoo and Digi Scrap Drive-In.

Do you love blue? LouCee Creations has a new CU product in the store at Digi Scrap Obsession called Designer Blues. I am loving the blues and it's 35% off!

Deviant Scrap has some new challenges going on. The first is an ATC swap. I love these little ATCs and the girls over at DS are way out of my league but I thought I would give it a go anyway. The only criteria for this challenge was to use blue. Here is mine. Such a fun challenge as at the end we will swap cards. Can't wait to see whose I will get!

The 7 Deadly Sins is an ongoing challenge at DS where you scrap one of the 7 Deadly Sins a month. This month was Lust.
Hummm...that brings up all sorts of images. You really must go over to DS and check out everyone's entries. They are all just stunning. Here is mine.

Happy Scraping!

Templates and a New Kit

Denise from DigiDesigns by Denise has the second in her Handy Helpers template series. Wonderful templates to get those layouts done in a flash or just when you have totally run out of creativity. This set is just $2.00 for a limited time.

A glorious new kit is out by Renata at Serene by RW. Oh the blues in this kit are just lovely. You can find the Beautiful kit at Inspiration Lane
I just love the clean and elegant feel to this kit. It truly is Beautiful!

Deviant Scrap has a new challenge up - Tattoo. Here is my take on this and wonderful Trudi from Two Dresses Studio put it into the Gallery Standouts. I love Deviant Scrap - it really challenges me to look outside of traditional scraping. Gets those creative juices flowing!

If you haven't visited Deviant Scrap - you really must, you will be amazed!

Off to figure out what to do with a baby in a boat. Have a nice Sunday!

New Designer at Digiridoo Scraps

My Aussie friend and fab designer, Charlie from Charlie's Digiscraps, is going to be designing over at Digiridoo Scraps! Charlie is an amazing designer (and a magnificent photographer) and her entire shoppe will be 50% off until July 31 so please run over and give her designs a look!

Here are a couple of her latest designs! Adorable little butterflies and beautiful paint strokes that I can't wait to use!

Here are a few projects I have been working on for the Digiridoo Creative Team.

The first is an amazing kit by Lisete Scraps called Tiny Garden.

A gorgeous summer July kit by Snippets Inc called Stars and Stripes. A perfect kit for my youngest granddaughter's first July 4th.

Lastly a sweet little kit for all those sibling layouts called Sweet Siblings by Stacy's Backdoor Designs and Designs by Sarah Bennett.

I need to apologize for those you have left comments on this blog - for some reason blogger is only posting one of the comments. I appreciate everyone stopping by and leaving your comments. I will try to figure this out ASAP! Off to scrap before I need to dig in and get some work done.

Happy Thursday!

Stop Here!

Wow, lots of new stuff today. Lou from LouCee's Creations has an absolutely gorgeous new kit out called "French Country". The textures in this kit are just perfection. So rich and beautiful. You can find this kit over at DigiScrap Obsession.

I played around a little with this kit also and came up with this little altered LO just for fun using the French Country kit.

Lou also has some wonderful CU Garden Leaves in the shoppe at DSO.

Charlie from Charlie's Digiscraps also has a stunning addition to the July DSV Designer Grab Bag "Garden Bits 3". Pretty fresh spring flowers which you can find over at Digital Scrap Vault.

Renata at Serene by RW also has a wonderfully designed collab kit out called "Fresh Blooms". RoseyToes and Serene by RW did a
gorgeous job with this kit. Such pretty yellows in this one. You can find it at Inspiration Lane.

Just a little tooting of my own horn - I won Layout of the Month over at Inspiration Lane with this layout using Serene by RW's kit called Summer Memory. Such a fun kit to work with!

And now for the big news! Sarah from Sarah Barber Design has the most fantastic kit out at Digiridoo. It is called "Grimm" and it is inspired by the Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales and the art work of Arthur Rackham. Sarah has outdone herself with this kit! The little creatures in this kit are amazing and the papers just about floored me - they are so creamy and rich. Seriously, this kit is worth having in your collection...WOW!

A little more bragging...the layout I did with Sarah's kit took GSO at DST and also at Gallery Standouts - woohoo!

Now I am making myself get my cleaning done so I can enjoy the long weekend! Have a safe and happy 4th!
