No, I'm not expecting.. but I did finally get to scrap some of my favorite baby memories! I love the sweet soft yellow and grays of Scraps N Pieces new kit "Expecting" that I was lucky enough to guest CT on!  It is my favorite SNP kit so far and there are lots of awesome ones! You can get it here at SNP!
 Here are my layouts.
 The first uses the template challenge template by Amy's Designs for the 2nd half of February as well as "Baby Love" word art by Memories by Digital Design

Hope you love this kit as much as I do! So adorable!

Happy Bee-Day

I was so excited when I heard Ashlyn say she wanted a "Bee"-day party. Pretty genius that she got it to me but I'm pretty sure it was just because she saw cute bees with pink and yellow. I asked around digi land to see if anyone would make a bee birthday kit and Designs by Snowlady jumped right on it! She made this adorable kit for the party! "Happy Bee Day" can be found at Stuff to Scrap here.
I used the kit to make so many fun decorations and details for the party! Check them out! I started with the invitations...

 I made name tags for all 20+ goodie bags
 Used the kit in the centerpieces.
 Juice box labels
 There were signs all over the house designating different activities
 Another one of my favorites... Water bottle labels! A Quick easy touch to personalize your party!
Here's a closer look at the centerpieces! How cute?
And of course I ended with a Thank-You note!
I also made an adorable banner but I forgot to get a good picture of it!!! 
I love personalizing parties! So easy!

Regular Price ($4.49)...on sale for just $2.
Here are some of my layouts using these Word Art Packs! I love these!

A Year in the Life Feb.

A Year in the Life is a P52 project unlike any other! This is a monthly project that's a little different from the usual. Basically what you'll get is everything you need to create your weekly pages, like journal cards and tags, as well as an editable QP and the elements and papers used in that QP. What is an editable QP? Well, it's like a template, except that you can use the QP as is, or change anything (or everything) you want. Use the elements and papers provided or add in your own elements from your favorite kits. Each month coordinates with the last, so at the end of the year you'll have a huge coordinated set. The whole idea is to keep it simple, so you'll actually do it! The February edition features two 12x12 QP templates, various elements used on the pages, 1 full alpha, as well as journal cards, speech bubbles, stickers, tabs, and tags in every color. Mix and match with the January set for even more variety. Both the February and January sets will be 30% off for the next week! ponytails_ayitl-feb_preview ponytails_ayitl-feb_alpha button-buy now2

Here are two example pages that you'll get as quick pages, completely ready to use as-is. Change them up as little or as much as you like.

Here are a couple of CT pages that show so beautifully how these can be customized to your liking.

This page from Wendy uses the February set...

And this page from Yabby uses both January and February's sets. She's also customized the size of her page to suit her style of scrapping.

Happy scrapping!

Wendy Tunison Designs has collaborated with Busy Crafting Mommy Designs to bring you a beautiful new set of kits called Arabesque.  Dancing, twirling, feeling the music in your soul.  There is nothing more beautiful than losing yourself in the music and letting it take you wherever it pleases.  Whether it's classical ballet, jazz, tap or any other form of dance, the beautifully blended colors of this kit will enable you to scrap it all.  The soft lace and tulle and sparkle of the sequins will have you surrounding your photos with the perfect finishing touches to really bring the feel of the dressing room to your layouts.  You'll hear the rustle of the tutus and feel the excitement of opening night as you play with the beautiful ellies.  With pieces so versatile you'll be able to use this kit over and over again for dance, heritage and all things feminine.  Don't worry, they didn't leave out the boys.  You'll find some fun masculine pieces as well so you can scrap their beautiful talent too!

Memories by Digital Design... templates, masks, and more!

"For who could ever learn to love a beast?"

That's the last line of the opening narration in the movie Beauty & the Beast. And we all know who fell in love with the beast...Belle did. And for February, Belle is the Princess of the Month. Mommy Made This and Memories by Digital Design are back with a new kit and a new template pack...just for you. Check out the awesome shades of yellow, touches of red and purple and blue. So pretty. Even Cogsworth & Lumiere make an appearance.

Grab Memories by Digital Design's template pack at 50% off for one week. When she thought of Belle, she thought of books, which turned into block-style templates.

Clearly I loved these templates! I don't know that I've ever made so many layouts with one template pack! Check out what I made...

Need more inspiration? Here's what her CT created using these templates:

Here's something else for you? Sports Mask Frames add a fun little something to your athletic layouts. Clip a paper to it or change the color to fit your page. If you were unable to make it to the Speed Scrap Monday hosted by Tammy (Memories by Digital Design), you missed out on getting these for free. But no worries...they're on sale starting tomorrow, at 50% off. She threw in a little extra one too, the LOVE mask frame that was offered as a freebie in the Valentine's Day edition of the store newsletter.

Check out what I made...
