This Golden Christmas Night

There is a beautiful new kit over at Tempus Fugit that you all need to check out. It is called "This Golden Christmas Night."

See?! Isn't it gorgeous? I love the red and gold colors and all the glittery elements. I had a wonderful time doing a couple of layouts with this kit.

Here is a freebie QP for you. Merry Christmas!

Template Set 4

There is an excellent set of new templates over at Laurie's Scraps that was released recently. It is the fourth set she has released, hence the name "Template Set 4."

Laurie's is another CT that I am leaving. I still may join her for a kit here or there, but I have to cut back. Here are the pages I did with her new template set:

And, I made a cluster frame freebie for you. It is made from the collab Laurie did with Pure Creativity Designs this Autumn, called "Autumn Air."

I Believe

Our boys visited with Santa this past weekend. The two oldest are totally into the whole Santa idea, the youngest... not so much! He pretty much freaked out when we put him on Santa's lap. They all do the first time, right?
I used the newest kit from Sweet Tomato Designs to scrap the photo of Evan on Santa's lap. It is called "I Believe."

I love the blue and red colors in this kit. It is such a nice switch from the traditional red and green usually associated with Christmas. Here is Evan, struggling to get away from Santa:

And a quickpage for your photos with Santa!

Baby on Board

Today I will be highlighting my last kit for Scraps by Andrea. It has been great working with Andrea. Hers was the first CT I joined and I have learned a lot, but it is time for me to trim down my CT duties and focus on other areas of my scrapbooking.
Today's kit is a cute kit for those expectant mothers out there. It is called "Baby on Board" and it comes in a boy or a girl version, and if you buy both you get a free neutral add on!

I used the kits to make a couple of layouts of my youngest when he was two weeks old. He turns two years old in a month. It is amazing how time flies!

 (This layout was featured on  Made Ya' Look Monday over at Faith Sisters!)

Here is your freebie QP. Enjoy!

Merry & Bright

It is finally starting to feel like Christmas around here! We have snow (about 5 inches and it's still coming down) and we put up all the decorations inside the house this weekend. The outside lights aren't going to happen this year - too cold! We should have done it back in November when I wanted to... There is a festive new kit over at Scraps by Andrea this week. It is called "Merry and Bright."

The kit is bright and fun. It has lots of elements that include buckles, curled ribbons and gift tags. It is only $2.50 this week so go grab it! Here are my layouts:

And I have a word art freebie for you today.

Snow Angel

Brrr! It has been so cold here the past few days! It would be worth it (kind of) if we at least had some snow on the ground, but no. We have no snow! I dug up a few pictures of my boys playing in the snow last winter and scrapped a page with the new kit from Laurie's Scraps called "Snow Angel."

Laurie says this is her favorite kit yet. It has some excellent elements and every piece is very detailed, as are all of Laurie's kits. I really like the blue and green color scheme - so wintery! Now if only we would get some snow... Anywho, here is my layout:

And, here is a free desktop for you to get you into the mood for winter.

So Blessed

It seems like it has been forever since I highlighted a new kit from Scraps by Andrea! It has been a while, but she has been in the process of moving to Alaska so she has a great excuse! She is releasing a new kit today. It is called "So Blessed."

I think this kit is a bit off the beaten path when it comes to fall kits. It has a pastel color scheme, which could also be used for Spring pictures. Here are my layouts:

And, here is your freebie!

Warm Sugar Moments

In my opinion one of the best things about the holiday season is the food - especially the goodies. Naturally, the title of the latest collab kit from Tempus Fugit and NBK Proudly Presents caught my eye - "Warm Sugar Moments."

Doesn't that title sound yummy? And this exceptional kit fits the bill - full of incredibly detailed elements, rich textured papers, glitter and an alpha! It is huge!  Here are my layouts I did with the kit:

Black Friday Sales

Two of the ladies I CT for are having Black Friday sales. So, after you go get your steals in the brick & mortar stores, get online and get some digi-deals!


And Winter Came

Has Winter come to your area yet? We have already had two snowstorms that left an inch or more of snow. I love the snow - but I hate being cold! Just let me stay inside and look at it from the warmth of my house! Doris over at Tempus Fugit released a kit this week that perfectly captures the icy coldness that is winter (at least around my parts). It is called "And Winter Came."

All of the papers and elements are very light in color. The whole kit gave me a cold feeling - but I think it is beautiful! I don't have too many snow pictures, but I came up with two layouts any way. Here they are:

And here is your freebie QP! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

Cara released a new kit today over at Sweet Tomato Designs. It is called "Grateful."

I ma in love with the color scheme. I really like that about Cara's kits - great colors! I especially love the houndstooth and herringbone patterned papers and elements in this kit. Here is my layout, highlighting one of my greatest blessings: being Mama to three beautiful boys.

And, a freebie QP for you to highlight your blessings.

Love Walks In

Ramona released a new kit this week over at Ramona the Pest. It is called "Love Walks In."

Ramona designed the kit in response to a dare by her husband. I think it is very cute! I used it to scrap a double page layout for an album I am making for my birthmom. (Yep, that's me when I was about 5.)

I made it into a single-page quickpage for you too. Enjoy!

'Tis the Season Again

I am so not ready for Christmas. But the digi-scrapping world seems to be jumping in with both feet! I got to work with my first holiday-themed kit of the season this week. It is called "'Tis the Season Again" and it is from Lauries Scraps.

Laurie also released a kit of card templates. And, with Christmas just around the corner they are an easy way to get your holiday cards designed, printed, and in the mail!

Here are a couple of cards for inspiration, both using the card templates and the new "'Tis the Season Again" kit.

And, a layout using the kit:
