Wow, I cannot believe it! June 15 is here already. Oops, I think it is the 16th now (I am up late as always). So much has happened and so much more is on its way... birthdays, summer vacation, trips, fun, and more! So where to start.... uhmmm.... how about checking out this awesome layout....
Can you guess who those two hot mamas are? Its me and Nicole (Digi-Designs by Nicole). How awesome huh! Ok, can you guess which of us in the picture is who? Well, the one with the Beatle Juice Head is ...... ME!!! ha ha.....
Nicole scrapped this layout of us and was so kind to send it to me. She used a really cute kit called Summer Blossoms by Gettin' Scrappy with Britt. You can check out Britt's store HERE.
Next up is another layout created by Nicole (who is a much better scrapper than I when it comes to scrapping memories when they happen... not years later). This layout is of her 3 kids and my youngest on one of the fun rides at Knott's Berry Farm! This layout uses a soon to be released kit called Lazy Days of Summer by Digi-Designs by Nicole. Keep an eye out for it HERE in her store.
And I am not that bad of a scrapper. I did a page! This layout is of Nicole's two girls on a ride at Knott's Berry Farm also. This kit was so perfect for the shirts they had on that I just couldn't resist scrapping those cuties!
And are you thinking... wow, that layout is so adorable? Well, I lifted and flipped it from a paper layout that was on the cover of the recent issue of Scrapbooks etc. I get my inspiration from everywhere.... actually, I had a horrible head cold while trying to scrap this last week after Nicole left and couldn't think on my own... so I had to lift! It is still cute. And are you wondering about the awesome kit, with those perfect petal pinks and grassy greens? Well, it is Fresh Picked, the newest release by CW Picket and I think it is her best yet! I love all the fun, country-ish ness to it but it doesn't limit you. There are 14 papers (9 patterns and 5 solids) a full alpha with numbers and punctuation, 2 journals, 5 frames, 4 bird elements, 2 apple elements, 2 bird houses, 2 paper flowers, 4 bows, 7 ribbons, 5 buttons, 2 paper vines, 1 string, 1 picket fence and 1 tree. I would love to see what someone else does with it. So run over and grab this kit... GO HERE to get it.
Don't stop reading yet... I have more to share. Now I asked some lovely scrappers if they wanted to work with this kit and I got a " hell yea" so check out these layouts. The image is linked to their blog, so stop by, say hi, leave them some love and maybe find a freebie.
This absolutely stunning layout was made by Kathy of The Latest Scoop, too! Isn't her little girl adorable? Check out the fun things in this layout... like the the little pink birdie, string and ribbons at the top of the layout and the great way she stacked the papers to make a matted frame for her pic.
Now Kathy was nice enough to turn this incrediable layout into a QP for you... just click the image to go to Kathy's blog to download.... remember your manners. And if you are interested, you can check out Kathy's store HERE.
Next is a cute layout made by Holly.
And last is a cute Brag Book page made by Danyale of ByGone's Scrapbooks. Click on the image to go snag it.
Next, you absolutely have to stop by CW Picket's blog. Look at the goodies she has for you - adorable cluster frames and a twitter background! WHOHOOOO!
Keep reading as I might have a little treat for you at the end!!!!
So have you heard of Scrappity-Do-Dah? Well, this fun place just got a bit more fun (I really like to say funner). Color with Caryn has joined the ranks of awesome designers. So go stop by! Lots of fantastic and familiar faces there!
Now... when I started digi-scrapping it was for the fun and super addicting speed scraps. So I wanted to take a minute and just share some of my recent speed scrap layouts. If you still haven't tried them... uh, whatcha waiting for? I know the name sounds scary but honestly, it is the best time ever... better than chocolate... better than sex... better than Twilight... oops, not better than that but you get the picture, right!
This layout was done at a speed scrap at my first Speed Scrapping home - ScrapMatters. I just love how this turned out. The layout uses mostly everything from MickeyB and I used the same kit - Plenty of Sunshine - to decorate the blog this month. You can get that kit on sale this month HERE. Click the layout for full credits.
This one was also done at ScrapMatters a while back but is again... just one of my favs.
This one isn't a speed scrap but was a QP challenge at Stuff to Scrap. Everyone did a QP and then they got ALL of them. That is a whole book done for you. You can check out this challenge HERE.
Here is another layout done for a speed scrap. This time at Digiridoo Scraps. Talk about outside my box on this one. Oh, did I mention that Color with Caryn is selling at this store also? Click on the layout for full credits.
This one was created last week or so at a speed scrap at Scrappity - Do- Dah. I loved the instructions on this... even if they were a bit challenging! Doesn't it look like this layout is just moving? BTW... that is my little one and Nicole's middle child on a ride at Knott's Berry Farm.
Most recently I did this speed scrap at Enchanted Scrap Studios with Charlie of Charlie's Digiscraps. She will be hosting 2 a month and you should come... look how cute this is. Click on image for full credits.
Digi-Designs by Nicole teamed up with Flower Scraps to create a fun kit called Beach House. You can find this kit in their shops at Stuff to Scrap!
And here is the very non beach house related layout I created using this kit. I love how this looks all retro.
And here is your treat for being a good reader. You can download this QP by clicking the image. Hope you enjoy it! Check back as there will be more surprises this week.
