Blessed

I'm back as promised with a layout showing you the beautiful kit Taylar's Gift by Designs by Kristine. This kit was created for Miss Taylar. Kris went to school with her mom and wanted to do something special for her. This kit is full of Taylar's favorite colors and captures her personality.  I love this kit it is made up of such beautiful papers and elements. The colors are gorgeous together! Well let me show you the preview of the kit and let you see for yourself.

And here is a layout that I made using it, the lovely little ladies are two of my granddaughters when they were younger.

I also have a couple of more layouts that I'd like to share, they were both made using In The Forest by Carena's Designs.  She has managed to create yet another kit that is great for creating scenes, I had a lot of fun creating with this kit.

In-the-Forest-Kit 

This first layout using it, I extracted the lovely Miss Lilly from her grandmother's picture. Her grandmother is none other than June of Cen's Stuff, thanks again for allowing me to play with the picture June!  I added the word magic, and the lovely Miss Lilly, everything else in this layout, including the bird on her shoulder, was found in the kit.

Magic In The Forest

This second layout I extracted my youngest DS and his bride from some of their wedding pictures and gave them a new setting. I think this one looks much more romantic. The wordart used in this layout is from Jean Genie Wordart by Jazzy, and other than the romantic couple, everything else used here is from the kit also. This layout got Gallery Standout at DST on 8-14-09 just a few minutes after it was added to the gallery!  I'm honored!!

Find The Magic

 

 

Oh yeah, I just have to show you a layout that Kristine sent me, using my Blog Template 14, which you can still find here.  She used a beautiful kit Beachy Is Peachy Collab by Misty O'Brien & Jen Yurko. This is such a bright, cheerful and fun layout of her lovely daughter who looks like she is having lots of fun!  Thanks again for sharing this with me Kris and allowing me to share it with everyone here.

I've been playing around with creating some wordart, something I haven't done in quite some time. I thought I would offer this one to you today, I'll show you my layout using it another day, I'm running out of time today. I've got a DR appointment later today and a lot to get done before then. So here you go, it is saved in PNG format and can be re-colored or resized for your layouts.

Layout Shares

I just had to pop in and share these layouts that I just finished with you. They are both made using Loryn from the Friend Series by Kim Broedelet it is a very versatile kit, and could be used for lots of different layouts. 

kb_loryn

 

And wordart from Rainbow Words by Jazzy, this set is all about color.  Sure to give your layout that little extra pop!

lr_RainbowWords_Wordart_PREVIEW

 

Here is the first layout, a little girl who reminds me of the color yellow, she is so full of happiness, and joy, like a ray of sunshine. 

I Am Yellow

This second layout is of my DH and I, a picture I have scrapped before. One of the many good things about digi-scrapping - you can reuse pictures and designs. 

Color Me...happily in love

Remember both Loryn and Rainbow Words can both be found in the store at Digi Scrap Obsession along with lots of other fantastic designs by lots of great designers.

Another Template and News

Yes I'm posting two days in a row!! I've got some news that  I wanted to share yesterday but forgot so will tell you about it in a bit. First I want to tell you about another kit that I've had the pleasure of playing with. It is from the Friend Series - Roche by Kim Broedelet. This kit is a little retro and a little vintage and perfect for all types of layouts.

kb-roche

Here is a layout that I made using it, this picture is an old one of my grandmother and my uncle. I just love going through all the old pictures.

Love and Joy

This next layout that I've made also using Roche, I've used a few of my camping pictures. I did this layout for the Ad Inspired Challenge at DSO, which is hosted by Mis.  Now I've done all of the challenges at DSO and it is only the 22nd.

back to nature

In this one above I also used wordart from Going Camping by Jazzy. This is great for all those special Camping layouts.

goin'campin'

Now for the news that I wanted to share, Jazzy also known as Words To Delite, is the word art Queen at DSO!  I love using her wordart and being on her CT as well as the DSO store CT. Guess what Jazzy is looking for some new creative team members!!  Take a look at her store here at DSO, and if you think you can do what she ask of you as a CT member, by all means contact her before all the spots get filled!!  Want to know what she ask of her CT, just take a look at this...

Layout Shares and Template Freebie

I'm back with some more layouts to share today.  I've had the pleasure of playing with a beautiful kit - Timeless Beauty by Andrea Dickinson. This kit has grungy, distressed papers that have a vintage feel. The pearls, flowers and bows will beautifully compliment your photos - old or new. I've used it on both old and new photos and loved the outcome of both. 

First I'd like to show you the preview of this beautiful kit.

ad-TimelessBeauty

 

This first layout is using old pictures of both sets of my grandparents when they were young, back before either of my parents were born. All of my grandparents have passed away now and I cherish this layout.  I did this one for the scraplift challenge over at DSO, hosted by LouCee.  It is a scraplift of Pool Time by Imgdonahue.

AlwaysTreasured

I also used word art from Scrapbooking Delites by Jazzy. I re-colored the word art to match the layout. Also cut it apart, placing part of it at the top and part at the bottom.

LR_SCRAPBOOKINGDELITES_PREVIEW

 

This next layout, was also made using Timeless Beauty.  I used a new picture in this one, taken at my oldest son's wedding on Valentines Day of this year. 

Love is something eternal

The word art used in this one was also by Jazzy, from the Wise Words word art.  It  is a collection of quotes by van Gogh made into Word Art phrases.  They can easily be re-colored and resized. Any one of them will add a special sentiment to your layouts or other craft projects I cut the word art apart and re-colored it to place it the way I have in this layout.

Challenges, Challenges, and more Challenges

I've got a couple of layouts to share with you today. I made these first two using Antoinette from the Friend Series by Kim Broedelet.  This kit is fun, bubbly and funky with a feminine edge.  So many beautiful papers and elements it was hard to choose what to use and what to leave out in these layouts. I will definitely be playing with this one again.

This first layout I made for the August 09 Quote challenge at DSO. I had a lot of fun, using an element from the kit in place of the word star.  Andrea has a beautiful posting bonus that you get for doing this challenge.  As do all the challenges at DSO, you receive a fabulous posting bonus for each and every challenge done. How cool is that!

A Star

This kit could have been made for the picture in this layout.  The wordart used in this layout is from Girl Power Word Art by Jazzy. It is full of fun, funky, grungy, phrases for your layouts of those special girls big or small!

Sugar and Spice 

Previews of designs used in the above two layouts. You can find both of these, along with lots more fantastic designs, in the store at Digi Scrapping Obsession.

I made a quick page from this next layout for the Great Exchange over at DSO.  Just create one item to share and receive ALL that month's creations in return.  I used Jean Genie by LouCeeCreations and Share A Smile Word Art by Jazzy to create this. If you would like to have this QP and more, head on over to the Great Exchange and join in on the fun.

All My Smiles

Here are the previews for the designs used in the above layout. They can also be found in the store at DSO.

After you finish here head on over and see all the other awesome freebies that you will find there. Plus a beautiful posting bonus from KimB if you either do a layout using these colors or create a mini kit using them. You can use this mini for your layout, or any of the others posted there as well. I couldn't think of a name for this one so I just named it for the color challenge. hehehe  This kit contains 10 12x12 inch papers and 2 clusters both of which come with and without the shadows.  The downloads are below the preview. This kit is divided into two downloads, so be sure and get them both.

Template Freebie

I've started my duties as a CT at Digi Scrap Obsession. Seeing as I have a strong scrapping obsession this is a good place to be. LOL   Lots of beautiful designs by lots of fabulous designers!

I've just got to show these new layouts that I've made playing with this fun kit, To Sir, With Love by Charlie's Digiscraps. Also using wordart from Preschool Days Wordart by Jazzy. This first layout is an old picture of me, starting first grade. Seems like such a long time ago. I can't remember where I went to school at then, as we moved around a lot when I was young.

Kim First Day Of School

This one using the same kit - To Sir, With Love by Charlie's Digiscraps is of my two sons when they were much younger. How I miss these days. I had fun on the play with the words for the title, using the Alpha that is included with the kit.

Skool Dayz

 

I also got to play with Year of Moments Accessory Pack 3 by Bunny Cates. These are fantastic for a layout in a hurry, she includes a template as well as papers, elements and ideas. The wordart I used in this layout is from the Going Camping Word Art by Jazzy.  This layout is also of my boys when they were much younger. This was their first camp out alone in the backyard. LOL

The journaling reads...
First campout with just the two of you.
It started in the backyard in a tent.
I left the door unlocked so sure
that you would come in. You
surprised me, you stayed outside
all night by yourselves, only on
the porch instead of in the tent.

Camping Adventure

This layout was made using Year of Moments Accessory Pack 3 by Bunny Cates,  To Sir, With Love by Charlie's Digiscraps, and Follow the Lines Grungy Grandma Wordart by Jazzy.  A different look using the same template. I did this one for the Altered Photo Challenge over at DSO. Where Jazzy has a cute Alpha as a posting bonus, which you can get free just for doing the challenge. I used a script in PSP X2 to give my picture a black and white sketch look. And used my granddaughter's own writing as an overlay on the journaling paper included in this kit.

I Love My Nana

 

This layout is of me and made with the mini kit that Kristine of Designs by Kristine made for me. She made a kit for each of her CT, we were to send a color swatch with four of our favorite colors. She has been giving them away each Friday on her blog, and this Friday is my day!  I don't like scrapping myself much but since the kit is Colors of Kim, I thought I should use one of my pictures with it. And this is a recent picture, no digging through the old pictures for this one. hehehe Thanks for the fantastic kit Kris!!

Kim

Country Living Clustered Frame

I just had to pop in today and tell you about the newest kit by LouCeeCreations called Country Living.  With the rich colors, cute stickers and rustic wood elements it's the perfect kit for scrapping those rural layouts. It's 30% off so you can buy it for $3.50 for a limited time. Hurry over and get it while it's still on sell!

lcc-CountryLiving-preview

Here are a couple of layouts that I've made using it.  This kit was perfect for this picture I took the other day of a field full of fresh rolled hay.

Time & Season

The wordart used in the layout above is from A Touch Of Nature by Jazzy - Words To Delite .  With 20 nature phrases, each on its own PNG file. Just the perfect touch to make all of your nature layouts pop. Can be easily resized and re-colored.  I have used this wordart pack for several different layouts already and I'm sure I'll be using it again in the future.

This is Jake, my youngest son's rooster who has turned out to be another one of his babies. He actually posed for me to take this picture. LOL  I did this layout for the Animal Kingdom Challenge over at DSO and hosted by LouCee.  She has a beautiful posting bonus that you get just for playing along.

I just have to share this news with you while I'm here today, DSO - Digi Scrap Obsession  was looking for a CT (creative team). Being as some of my favorite designers are there and I've been hanging out there since I first starting digi-scrapping, I applied. Well now I'm now on the DSO Creative Team!!  I'm just tickled pink to have been chosen.  And with all the CT's that I'm now on I'm as busy as a stump-tailed cow in fly time (very busy)!! So I need to run as I have lots of goodies waiting for me to play.  I will be back on Friday with another gift for you and news of another that you can find.

Have a scrap-happy day,

Kim
