Evening Purse from Krisi's Kreations

It's called an Evening Purse and it's new today from Krisi's Kreations at Scrap Matters.  I think it would be just perfect for a favor bag for a shower or a small gift.  It comes in two sizes - a larger size that uses 2 sheets of cardstock or a smaller size that just uses 1.  I made the smaller one and I think it's just adorable.  I used one of my favorite kits with it - Traci Reed's Hip to Be kit found at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

So hop on over to Scrap Matters and pick up the new template from Krisi's Kreations.  I know you'll love it!

Happy Scrapping!

Week #4 at Brownie Scraps - Free Mini Kit!

Wow, I made it!  After last week I didn't think I wanted to even attempt making a mini-kit for this week's contest but alas I pulled through and did it!  This week we got to pick our own color scheme and do what we wanted with it.  My kit has 7 papers and 10 elements.  Links are below.  Thanks so much!

And as always, happy scrapping!

New from Down This Road Designs and a FREEBIE!

You are just going to love this kit from Down This Road Designs at Brownie Scraps!  It's called That's Cool and it would be just perfect for all those rough and tough little boy pictures you have.

Here's a couple of layouts I made with it:

And a frame cluster I made for you as a freebie!  I hope you like it.

Busy as a Bee

That's me!  When the boys are sleeping I'm busy doing my hobby.

Just look at what I've been up to!

First off, new from Krisi's Kreations - Flip Top Box.  It was one of the easiest things I've ever made.  Wow!  Krisi made her kit into a little treat box - you'll have to head over to Scrap Matters and check it out.  For my box, I used the Sweet Shoppe Designs collab kit - See Jane Smile that was part of the Digi Files last month.  I love that kit!

Next up, I made a coordinating birthday card to go with it.  Sweet Shoppe's birthday is this month and they are having a huge celebration.  A contest they are having is to make a card for the shoppe - this is what I did (it's also for my Mom who celebrates her birthday this month as well).

This next one I did as part of Log Your Memory's Sweet Talk Challenge and my February Portfolio at Sweet Shoppe - I really like how it turned out.  I used Misty Cato's Adoration kit.  

This one is for Log Your Memory again - I had fun with it and got to use some silly photos!  Credits are listed below it.
Kristin Cronin-Barrow - All About Him
Melissa Bennett - Boy Crazy
Darcy Baldwin - Gimme Space
Doreen Stolz - Dream a Little Dream
Digi Chick Collab - Every Life has a Story - recolored alpha

 Happy Scrapping everyone!

Another Freebie!

Here is my week #2 mini kit for the Brownie Scraps contest.  We were to choose a song that inspired us to create a kit and I chose Kokomo by The Beach Boys. I'm in need of some warm weather - aren't you?

Keep in mind it's only the second kit I've ever made.  I had fun with it but I'm tired and glad I'm done for the week!  There are 7 papers and 13 elements.

Download links are provided below.  Thanks!

Happy Scrapping!

New from Krisi's Kreations!!

You have to check this out, seriously!  I was so excited when I found out this was the new release this week at Scrap Matters.  It's a envelope for your cards.  It comes with 5 different template options.  How cool!  It is called Cover It Up: Invitation:

I made a coordinating card with the Block It: V.1 Template and the collab kit Love Letters by Down This Road Designs and Jacabean at Brownie Scraps.
I just love how they both turned out!
Happy Scrapping!

A Mini Kit for You!

I joined the design contest at Brownie Scraps this month and this is what I came up with.  Please be advised this is my first-ever time designing anything!  It was reassuring to know that I wasn't the only newbie trying my hand at this.  I have to say that the others that have posted so far are absolutely wonderful!  I had a good time with it and hope you like it.  I named it after one of my favorite 80's movies - Can't Buy Me Love - with the wonderful McDreamy - before his McDreamy days.  :)  Download links are provided below.

Closer look at the papers:

Happy Scrapping everyone!
