Don't Worry I Didn't Forget Wordart Wednesday

Well I haven't had the time (or maybe it is the inspiration) to get another template freebie together yet.  However, I did have some fun creating another wordart.  I was at first going to do some fall wordarts this month but seeing as how it is still 90 degrees here I just couldn't get in the mood.  So instead I decided to have some fun and do some wordarts this month that are dedicated to my soon.  So today I am sharing with all of you his love for trains.  And since I didn't have a template this week (and because I had so much fun creating the wordart) I created a frame as well!  I hope that you enjoy!

A New Grab Bag

Well by now you know how much I love grab bags!  Let me just say, the Mega Grab Bag at Scrappity-Doo-Dah this month is fabulous!!  You are not going to want to miss this one.  It features 8 products and you can snag it for only $2.99!!  What a deal!

Some New Templates To Check Out

Being a template junkie when I had the opportunity to check out Alegna Designs' latest template pack I jumped right on it.  I have to admit she is one of my favorite template designers as her templates practically scrap themselves!  Her latest pack, Summer Evenings,  was so much fun to use as it utilizes a lot of white space which you can of course leave as white space or get creative with and through in a large photo or maybe some funky patterned papers!  Check it Out!

Summer Evenings

And of course I have a layout of my little guy to show off with this template pack


And speaking of templates.  I am excited to share that I have been doing some more playing around in Photo Shop and have another template put together.  So make sure to check back tomorrow for another Sunday Freebie!!

My First Template Freebie

OK, so I finished my freebie and couldn't wait until tomorrow to share...

So as most of you probably know I am a template junkie.  I begin most of my layouts with a template.  The past couple of weeks I have been trying to create a few more layouts from scratch.  That gave me an idea.  What about creating a couple of my own templates to use for my layouts.  So today I have my first template freebie to share with all of you.  I hope you enjoy.  Let me know what you think and who knows maybe I will have some more in the future.  I have also recently updated my Facebook Timeline Cover again so I will have another timeline template up soon too!

And here is my layout that I created with the Template!

Getting to Know A New Designer

So back in June we had the pleasure of having Simple Girl Scraps s a guest designer at SDD. Unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to work with her.  But I am so excited to share that she is now exclusively selling at SDD and I got an opportunity to work with one of her kits this month (hopefully I will have some more fun kits to share with you this month too).  I got to snag her kit, Wild Child, and boy was it fun to play with.  The colors and elements are so bright and playful and the wordarts are perfect!  Plus this month she is hosting the Bird Cage Challenge so you can pick up a mini kit add on for this kit absolutly free!  Check it Out!

A New Guest Designer

Good Morning Everyone!!  I have the great pleasure to work with this months Guest Designer at SDD, Cornelia Designs.  She has some fabulous items in her store that you will be sure to see some more posts this month featuring her products!!  Today though she released an exclusive template pack, her Calendar 2013 Templates, into the store and I had a chance to get to work with them.  Throughout the year in 2011 I worked on creating my 2012 calendar and each month I look forward to flipping to the next page and remembering the photos from the previous year that I had featured.  It is such a wonderful way to preserve your memories.  Well I hadn't had a chance to start working on my 2013 calendar yet and I had so much fun digging right into her templates and now have several months all ready to go!  Her templates make it super easy and I just love all of the blocking she used in them!
