Blue without you

Blue without you by KnC Designs.  What can I say??? It's an awesome kit with tons of elements, very easy to make layouts.  It's like everything just falls into place. Just take a look at this preview.  It's kinda dreamy and romantic and almost melancholic....

I made 2 layouts with it in just 1 hour.  One is my little sister. She had this sad looking face in this picture and it worked so perfectly for this kit. 

The second layout is of my little grandson.  He is so into fishing, just like his dad.  At the age of 3,5 it's all he can talk about.  He wants to watch the fishing channel with dad and has his own real working fishing rod.  It's just adorable how a little boy like this can be such a fisherman.

Easter Peeps

Yes, Easter is just around the corner (not even a month away).  I used to get away from the snow for few days every April, but since my family moved down here, I have no place to go... no place in nice warm climate where there is no more snow.  Vancouver is so nice at this time of year.  Green, with spring foliage... warm and happy...

I got this Easter kit that made me think back of Easter spent in Vancouver every year. I'm going to miss it.
Here is the preview:

This kit has kind of vintage feel, with old victorian images..

He's gone digital

        It's Sunday again!  Another week has gone by and still no spring...  I can't believe it's still snowing out there. 
Anyhow, until it gets nicer I'm staying inside and scrapping.  Today I got a new kit by Daphadilly Art - She/He's gone digital. Here is the preview:

I wanted to scrap my husband Marc.  He is so into computers, and he didn't start using them until he was 45 years old.  You're used to thinking that computers are young peoples thing.  If you have a problem just ask an eight year old... lol.... but he's doing so well. 
Unfortunately I didn't have a picture of him on the PC so I used my grandson's pictures with his Ipod or as he says it "MePod"

The second layout is about me switching from traditional paper scrapbooking to digital.  I made a complete switch in January of this year and since then have not touched my supplies.  Soon I will have to go through it and have a garage sale.  I really have a lot of stuff. 

Now I'll do everything on my new IMac and with exception of some cards I probably will never touch my supplies again. 
Anyhow, if you are interested in this kit, then head over to the store.  It a mega kit bundle including boyish set called He's gone digital and full alpha as well as girlish colored: She's gone digital version with alpha. It's a great deal!

I got this wonderful new kit from Designs by Jodi called Hard Hat Required.  It's perfect to scrap my construction photos.  I have so many pictures from last year when we started to build the new house, and we're a going to start again soon so this kit will come in very handy.  I will be able to make my pages as we go and post here for you to see.  Here are my new layouts from last summer:

Pouring crawl space floor

First day of construction

Little Zach using the drill 
You can get this kit at the Ginger Scraps Store.  There is also a great feebie addon, so what are you waiting for?

Sweet Griffin by Marshmella Delights

This is such a sweet kit and so easy to work with.  Ever wonder why some kits just lend themselves to your layouts and others come so hard????  I don't know why, but it took only 1 hour to do the two layouts.  That's quick.  I had some kits that took days...

Check out those papers and great elements.  I just love those colors, aren't they wonderful????

So go hurry up to Meredith's Store and pick it up right away.  It's only $4.00


Today I have a preview of another new kit called BOYBOTIC by JenniferZ Designs. It has lots of great papers and robotic elements.  Perfect for little boys!   Here is the preview of the kit and my pages:

To love the Earth

New day - new kit, new Creative Team!
Yes, I think I may be getting over my head. I just joined a new Creative team, couldn't help it.  I'm a digi junkie. 
A friend from one of the CT groups emailed me today letting me know that a designer she works for is looking for more "creative artists"... well, how could I say no???  The more, the merrier, right???
Here is the preview of the new kit, just released today:

and my two layouts:

Simply Spring

I'm really rolling today.  In the last hour I've done 2 new layouts for Scrappy Carol.
Her new kit: Simply Spring is just amazing.  I just love all of the shades of blue, purple and pink.... makes me thinks of little girls....    Yes, I know it's not my usual style but this kit was so easy to work with... 

Here is the preview:

And here are my creations with it.  What do you think????

Baby Girl
Glamour Girl

This kit has lots more elements than what I used.  It's very springy and it's on sale right now at Enchanted Studio Scraps.  So hurry over and get it.  You'll love it!

Just trying to catch up with my designing and posting for this week.  here are some layouts I did a few days ago:

Beautiful Life

Papa's Love

The kit I used was called Frizzle by The Urban Fairy.  I thought I it would be much more challenging for me to work with purple,(not my usual colors although I really do like it) but it turned out to be a lot of fun.   Love the elements.... it's so romantic and sort of poetic kit... it that's the right way to describe it.  Here are the previews of all that's included in the kit:

Isn't it awesome??? So many elements, papers and even alpha.  

My Favorite Man

       I just finished my layouts for Scrappin Digi Creations.  The kit was called My Favorite Man and was designed by Creative Chaos.  For some reason I didn't feel as creative this time.  It may be due to overload of stuff to do with the house construction project.  I've been doing a lot of research and phoning around trying to get everything ready for the building season.  It's more time consuming than I ever imagined.  My husband Marc and I have been spending every Saturday shopping (comparing prices and products) and making decisions about he things we want...  Just finding the floor we both like at a price we can agree on took over a month.  Now granite, cabinets, sinks, lights....etc..etc...    It can get quite overwhelming as I'm trying to make sure that everything goes well together and making decisions from a little swatch or sample can be quite frustrating. 

But, I'll stop my rambling on and introduce to you My Favourite Man by Creative Chaos

Cozy Woodsy Winter

Oh god, how much more snow are we going to get???? Isn't this enough???
I got a new kit from Marshmella Designs called Cozy Woodsy Winter.  Just perfect for my winter photographs. 
I've taken some pictures outside for the Outside my window Challenge and this kit coordinated perfectly with them.  Check out my Layouts below:


Boyo Grunge

Here is a paper pack by The Urban Fairy called Boyo Grunge. Don't you just love the colors ???  I couldn't wait to play with it.... lol... stayed up till 3 am working on my pages. 

I had it done for few days now and have posted it on various galleries, but had no time to update my own blog.  Things are getting busy for me now.  I joined the gym and trying to go every day for 1 hour.  Mostly to do cardio as I got a sore neck and shoulder muscle at the moment.   I'm also doing lots of reserch and comparinson shopping for our new house.  With the spring only a month away (please God) we are getting ready to build again.  I'm trying to finalize all of my designs and price qutes, but I seem to change my mind a lot and can't decide on the final product.  Anyhow, Here are my layouts for this kit.  What do you think??

 LO 1 is my son again.  He is always a star to me.

LO 2. My grandkids

Afternoon Delight

I've come up with 2 new layouts for a very talented designer. The kit is called Afternoon Delight.  It is an awesome summer time kit with elements covering wide variety of topics, starting at child's play to BBQ and camping.  Check out the preview of the kit here:

  Here is my first layout with my little grandkids playing with bubbles...  They loved it so much....

 And This is my son bbq-ing some some stakes for dinner.

The kit is very bright and colorful.  It feels so sunny and happy that it made me forget about the piles of snow outside the door.   You can get this kit right here at Daphaddily Art .
