Creative Inspirations with Down on the Farm...

Here's the layouts I promised to share with you earlier this week. They all use my latest kit, Down On The Farm.

This first one was created by my fantastic CT, Krista, who always seems to have photos that work well with my kits!

These next two were designed by me.

Petting Zoo photos
Farm photos from my younger days when I lived in the Midwest
Recent photos visiting a family farm
Photos from trips through the rural areas of the country

You can find this kit in my shop today at Scrapable!

Watch for layouts using this product coming this weekend!

Earth Day kit - new this week

I have a new kit for Earth Day (Sunday, April 22nd).  I thought this might be a different kind of kit to use to scrapbook any photos from Earth Day activities at school or in your hometown. It's a great way to document planting a tree in your own yard or highlighting your own "green" efforts around the house. Document what you are doing to "Save the Planet" whether it be CFL bulbs, solar panels, recycling trash or planting a tree.

Here's the kit available today at Scrapable...

Look for it in my shop at Scrapable.

April Desktop Challenge at Scrapable

Deanna from Kooky Cat Designs has this to say about the Desktop Challenge at Scrapable this month...

Hi there! I'm so excited to host April's desktop challenge! I love making a new desktop each month!

April makes me think of Spring renewal and fresh starts!

I picked a really cute kit made by NewE Designz to make my April desktop!

I also made my own April 2012 calendar which I will share with you!

Here is my April desktop:

Isn't it cute, I love the happy little birds in this kit!

So let's freshen up our desktops! I can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Check the forum at Scrapable to see what else is going on!!!

Creative Inspirations Using My Curvy Templates

I have some layouts that I created using my latest release, Curvy Templates, so that you can see how I've layered the papers.

The templates...

The pages...

page created using Easter Tweets kit

page created using Easter Tweets kit

page created using Everyday Moments kit

page created using Thinking of Spring kit

page created using A New Year kit

As you can see, I made slight variations in some of the layouts but these pages came together so quickly and easily by having the templates as a place to start.

Just for You!

This week I am releasing a template pack of 4 to give you the tools to create beautiful layouts quickly. All you have to do is make you selections of photos, papers and embellishments that you want to use. (Tip: To make it even easier to create a layout using a template, select your papers and embellishments all from one kit. That way you know everything will match perfectly!)

These templates are in PSD format and already have drop shadows included. Just clip papers and photos to the layers and replace or recolor the embellishments to complete the page. You can find this pack in my shop at Scrapable.

Pinterest Challenge

Try a new challenge at Scrapable this month. It is our new Pinterest Challenge. It is being hosted by Deanna from Kooky Cat Designs and here's her challenge:

It's April and Spring has sprung up everywhere including Pinterest! I've collected a few images from Pinterest to give you that Spring feeling! I hope you are inspired!

Here's what you do:

Take the photo I have given you and create a LO inspired by that photo. Post your layout here and we will pin it to our Pinterest Challenge board on Pinterest.

It's that simple!

Here is your April photo:

Have fun with this! Anything goes!

Here are the rules:

For every challenge you complete, you receive 1 point. If you use at least 90% of newly released Scrapable products, your layout is worth 2 points. Once you have reached 20 points, you will receive a $5 Coupon to use in our store. (Coupons will be issued after the end of the month.) Your points will carry over from each month until you reach 20 points.

No double-dipping. Each layout must be a fresh layout, posted only in one category.
Make sure you re-size your layouts to 600 x 600 - 72dpi; upload into our photo gallery under the appropriate category. Come back and post it in the challenge thread, linking it back to the gallery.

All challenges have to be completed on or before the last day of each month, unless otherwise stated.

Here's my layout for the Pinterest Challenge.
