Winter Fun January 20, 2013

Sure, we live in Africa and don’t exactly get snow here, but on our trips back to the States, we do get to enoy it – and then I get to do my favorite thing to do in the snow…. Go inside and scrap about it.   😉

Mommy Made This has a new kit out – WInter Fun.  The kit however is all about having fun in the snow: building snowmen, having snowball fights, sledding, skiing….  Check it out.

And here are some layouts with the kit…..

The kit is available at Scraps-n-Pieces.

Mommy Made This has a fun kit out to scrap all those Christmas and holiday photos.  It’s so bright and fun that I actually made our family’s year end newsletter with it.  Check it out.

And here are some LO’s by her team.

Mommy Made This also has a great freebie add-on to the kit – an additional 7 papers & 15 elements! It’s like getting a mini kit for free, so make sure you stop by and grab it!


Judah’s 3rd Birthday Interview and a New Kit by Adriana’s Cafe (and a Freebie) January 2, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christie @ 8:44 pm
So I’m a little behind with my pages…. But Adriana’s Cafe has a new collection that she will be adding to each month – We Are Memory Keepers – so maybe that will help get me caught up!  She is collab-ing (Is that a word??) with different designers each month to bring you a fun new kit, so stay tuned.
The first kit of this collection is We Are Memory Keepers: Our Buttons.  The kit is loaded with all kinds of buttons (which is great because buttons are one of my favorite elements to use), including button flowers, button borders, and even button-patterned papers.
Here is a page I made of Judah’s birthday interview…. (Click on the picture to view it larger.)
I also made a page using both parts of the collab – Adriana’s part as well as parts from Scraps-n-Pieces.  Isn’t he a cutie??
Here are the previews of the kit.  The kit will be on 30%off the first week at Scraps N Pieces Store and Stuff To Scrap Store.
Scraps N Pieces created a second full kit for the collab, Manda Lane Designs created Glitters and Word Art, and Templates Pack were created by AK Designs, all made to coordinate.  Here is Scraps N Pieces Kit, also 30% off at Scraps N Pieces Store.
Adriana’s team made some freebies for you, too – mine is a word art that you can download here.
