Easter Layouts, New Alphas and a Freebie

Today I want to share with you some of my Easter layouts that I have done already.  I plan on doing quite a few more since I have a TON of pictures from the Easter weekend.

First up is Coloring Eggs.  This layout features my son, one of his eggs, and the final bowl of eggs.  I love his expression in the picture where he is showing me his egg.  He was so proud of himself for completing that egg.  The sad/funny part is after he went to show daddy his egg and was on the way back to put it up, one of the dogs tripped him and he smashed the egg!  It was funny and sad at the same time!

This layout has several great products used in it and in case you are loving any of them I am going to tell you where you can go and get them for your very own stash!  All of the papers and elements (except alpha) are from the DSI April Collab– April Showers.  It is a great kit and very pretty and versatile.  I will tell you more about it tomorrow so come back.  The alpha is a seperate product and is called Spring Fling- Blue and is by Foxy Designs. It is not yet available in her store but will be soon!  And it also comes in Pink and Green.

The second layout I want to share with you is the Cousins.  This layout is of my two kids and my niece and nephew on Easter morning before church.

For this kit, you will notice that I again used Foxy Designs Spring Fling alphas but this time in Green and Pink.  I love this alpha and will probably be using a lot of it in the future.  For the papers in this kit I used Designs by Sweet Mesquite Easter Hop freebie!  They are some great papers.  They aren’t available as a freebie any more (only for Easter) but maybe she will be putting them in her store.

For both layouts I used templates from BTA Designs, who is guest designing over at DSI this month.  I got the change to work with her Color Lovers Vol 1 Templates and really enjoyed using them.  Of course I am a template junkie and love just about any template I can get my hands on.  They really make my scrapping a lot easier and faster.

And because I am so glas that you read to the end, here is a little word art freebie for you.  It was made using Foxy Designs Spring Fling alphas.  Enjoy!

Purple Spotlight, Sketchpads and a Freebie

I love being on the 3 Creative Teams I am on; especially the two that are store CT’s as it gives me the opportunity to work with some amazing designers each month! Of course the personal CT that I am on is for an equally amazing designer, but the store teams are different as it gives me a variety and that is what I need!  So this past month over at DSI, I got to download and work with some great kits.  Probably the most I have ever worked with and I am so please to show some of them off to you.  So over the next few days, you will be seeing all kinds of work from various designers! Enjoy

In the Purple Spotlight
I don’t use a lot of purples in my scrapping, I tend to stick to more earthy colors or go with pinks for my daughter and blues for my son.  So when I had the opportunity to work with In the Purple Spotlight by Misty O’Brien Designs, I was a tad worried about what I would do with it!  Here is a preview of the kit:

The kit is great as it ranges in hues from strong purples to very pale purples.   And the elements are so cute! You won’t be disappointed when you purchase this kit.  I can’t wait to use it for some layouts of my husband as purple is his favorite color!  Here is a layout made with the kit

Sketchpads
I am in love with templates! They are so easy to use and really make my scrapping so much faster than it normally would.  I guess some people would feel they are the easy way out but I don’t. I like to take them and mix them up too by subtracting elements or flipping the design, or maybe adding another picture.  They are so much fun.  And some of the best I have found and gotten to play with are by Susan Robinson Designs.  Her Sketchpad series are wonderful! I love all of the ones that I have gotten to play with.  And although I haven’t played with them yet, she also has card templates!  I can’t wait to get my hands on those since I love making and sending cards to people; think of all the possibilities!  Here are just a couple of her products:

Here are some of the layouts that I have created using her templates

I have been trying my hand at making templates lately and although I do enjoy using them, I don’t see myself branching out to making them full time! But you get to benefit from my expirements!  Here is a preview of your freebie today

Easy as Pie Photobook

Over at DSI we have had a few new designers join us in the last month and one of them is Digiland Designs! You can click the graphic below to visit her shop at Digital Scrap Ink.

Photobucket

She mainly does templates and if anyone knows me then they know how much I am loving templates right now! They are my newest obsession!  So of course when she asked for CT members to play with her Photobook 10 I jumped at the chance. And let me tell you I am so glad that I did!  Here is what I created with it

It has been a couple of years since we went on the missions trip to Louisiana and ever since we returned I have wanted to put my pictures (at least some of them) in a photobook.  But the task of choosing the photos, uploading them, choosing the type of book, choosing a layout and on and on was really overwhelming to me! Not to metion the fact that I wanted it to be a little more personal than that. This is a huge template pack and so versatile! You will be creating photobooks for yourself, family members, and for gifts like crazy! Think of all the Christmas gifts you could make with just this one item!

Photobook 10 only $3.99!

Photobook 10 only $3.99!

I kept it nice and simple but I still completed the entire book in under a week! I wish I would have really kept track of the time spent on it so that I could tell you how quick and easy the templates made everything.  And I got to be in control of the size and layout of my photos, the background colors, the borders, the text, EVERYTHING!  I can’t wait to get this printed and bound!

And if you aren’t sure you will like Fliffy’s designs (believe me, you will!) you can get this template designed by her for FREE right now! So go grab it and paly with it and then get Photobook 10.  It really is a great product and has so many uses.  I just started doing another book with it; my son’s first year!

Oh yeah, if you create a layout with the template and post it in the DSI gallery and link back to this post in the forum you can get a great set of wordart from Fliffy too!

Free Desktop

Last month I got to work with a great little kit called Lagoon Love!  I loved the colors of the kit and the papers have great textres. Plus there are some really neat elements in the kit.  Here is a little preview of it.
