The Season to be Freezin'

So I might be a CT junkie... There's a new designer I adore so of course I had to jump on her CT!  Ponytails Designs has the cutest kids and characters in her kits and I love them! Her newest kit has ADORABLE snowmen and fun winter ellies.  I keep hoping for a lil snow here so I can use it some more! You can pick it up at STS here.
Here is my layout using one of my most favorite pictures ever!  I used a template from Scrapping with Liz called Artsy Journal templates.  They are amazing too!
And as I told you before I am starting to make some freebies so here is my cluster frame freebie for you using The Season to be Freezin!

A-Manda has been busy!

A-Manda Creations has so many new kits out!!! I will get right to it!  I used her kit Gnome for the Holidays to make our Christmas cards this year. I was so excited to see that the colors matched our outfits perfectly! I LOVE this color scheme!

I also scrapped the outtakes from the taking of Christmas pictures. I wasn't able to get it together in time to do professional pics so it was quite the endeavor trying to take them ourselves. My mom did a great job but pictures always stress me out and this was no different! Here is the layout of all the outtakes! I used a new template from Memories by Digital Design called "Mouse-ical" that will be released soon!

I also scrapped Ashlyn's Christmas List. This is the first time she has really made a list.  I used another Memories by Digital Design template InstaFab Vol. 2 for this layout.
You can pick up Gnome for the Holidays here at A-Manda's store!

I absolutely love this next kit "Staching Through the Snow". 
With all the Movember fun and mustaches popping up everywhere I just had to use it! Fortunately our elf Skippy (who you will be seeing a lot of) set up the perfect photo op! I used a Temptations vol. 10 template by Wendy Tunison Designs.

 You can pick up "Staching Through the Snow" at A-Manda's store here.

Guess what there is more! In fact there are 2 more kits!!! Do you want to see more of Skippy's adventures?  Good because she has also released "Elves on Shelves" an adorable elf themed kit that is just perfect for elf hijinks!

Here are my layouts with Elves on Shelves.  For the first one I used a Dear Friend template by Karen Diamond Designs
For the second one I also used Dear Friend and this time the Designer is Fit2BeScrapped!
You can pick up "Elves on Shelves" here at A-Manda's store!

There is one more Christmas kit coming from A-Manda but it hasn't released yet! So check back soon because this one is a beautiful traditional kit that is stunning!

Let it Snow

I have a beautiful wintery kit to introduce to you today!  Amy's Designs has released "Let It Snow" at SNP. You can pick it up here while it's on sale 50% off!

My mom said she saw snow flurries just a little north of us so maybe we will get some before Christmas!  It's been a warm winter so far!  I love the snow for a little while and its a necessity for me at Christmas time but I could do without the big blizzards! I got to use a picture from last year since we haven't had any snow yet this year.  Look how tiny Kinsey is! I used a Dear Friend template by Busy Crafting Mommy Designs.
And I have a surprise for you! I have decided to start giving freebies from the awesome kits I work with! Here is a cluster frame freebie for you!

Shelf Elf

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?  We do.  Our elf Skippy is usually a pretty nice elf although he does get a lil naughty when it involves FSU Football!  Just For Fun Designs has a new kit releasing Dec. 1st called "Shelf Elf" and it is adorable!  You can pick it up at SNP here!
I just love the little elves, the fun colors and all the additional ellies! 
Here are my layouts of Skippy from last year! 
The first one uses a template by AK Designs
The second one I used a template from that awesome "Dear Friend" template collab I've been talking about! This one is by Scraps N Pieces the designers!
Rush over and get this kit! You won't be disappointed!
