We are enjoying another heat wave, and just in time for Canada Day.  This year it is on Sunday, and I can't wait for all of the festivities.  Since this weekend will be busy, I wanted to let you know about a few sales before I head out.

Romajo has 2 new kits today, and just as a reminder everything in her store is 50% off.  (including the kits I am going to show you now!)  The first new kit is the second volume of her Express Yourself series.  This time she made the words in acrylic.

I love how my layout turned out using these words!  On this layout I used Express Yourself Vol. 2, Purple Elegance and Spring Paper Pack.

The next kit is a wonderful dotted alpha kit.  There are two different alpha in this kit.  One is a distressed chipboard, and the other is a gelly alpha. 

On this layout I used the chipboard alpha, and also Royal Celebrations, Basic Kit (dark)Blue, Express Yourself Vol. 1 all by Romajo.

On this one I used the Gelly alpha as well as Basic Kit - Red, Basic Kit - (dark)Blue and Royal Celebration.

There is also a Canada day word art that Marieke created for you.  You can download for free at Romajo's Blog.  Click HERE to check it out.

The next sale I have to let you know about is Leaving a Legacy Designs.  Kimberly is celebrating her 10th anniversary.  In honour of that, she is putting her entire store on sale -- 27% off.   Why 27, when she is celebrating her 10th anniversay?  Well for that answer you will have to check out her blog - HERE. To check out her store you can click HERE, or on the flyer.

Since Independence Day is soon approaching Stuff to Scrap is putting the entire store on sale.  On July 3rd and 4th you can get 40% off anything in the store.  Click on the flyer or HERE to check it out.

Wow thats a lot of sales.  I may just have to go shopping before I leave.  Oh the choices!!

Happy Canada Day to everyone here!  I hope that you are able to celebrate somehow of the weekend.

Template Pack 2 and Stitched Alpha

I am in Love with our weather right now.  We have actually had rain and cooler temperatures this week.  So much so that I completely forgot yesterday was Saturday!!  So I am a little late in showing these off, and I hope you don't mind.  :)

So without further waiting, here are some new kits from Romajo.  This week she has created some go to kits that you can use for almost every layout.  (And remember that her store is 50% off until she has received her EHD back.)  The first is a template pack, and the second is a kit with 2 stitched alphas.  Take a look:

Of course you know I had to play around with them.  (Such a hardship!)  Here are the layouts I created using these two new kits, and several others that are in her store:

I also wanted to do a layout about Nik Wallenda's achievement of walking across Niagara Falls.  I do not own the rights to these pictures, and I have accredited the photographer on each picture.

It looks to be a gorgeous evening here, and I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

Summer has Arrived!  Well technically yes, but we have had summer temperatures since April.  I hate to say it, but I would love some rain, and a few cold nights.  So while I was thinking about the heat and sunshine, I was trying to finish an album for the first half of this year.  I was working on a page showing the first robin that I seen this past spring.  So I thought I would show it to you.  I used Flip Flap Flutter by Mommy Me Time Scrapper, and a template by Fiddle Dee Dee Designs.    To go to either of their websites, just click on their names.

Here is the kit:

And here is the page I made.

And just for you, I have some cluster freebies that I made for my layouts.  I hope that you can use them.  You can download them by clicking on the preview.

I am heading down into the basement now to try and cool off.  I hope that you can find a way too.

Never Fear, Super Dad's Here Quick Pages

As promised here is a look at the quick pages for Never Fear, Super Dad's Here.  If you are still looking for a gift to show that special man in your life, these would be a great solution.  Diana also has created another freebie using this kit.  You can go to her blog HERE to grab it.

The quick pages for Feeding Frenzy: Safari by Mommy Me Time Scrapper are also in the store. 


Proud as a Peacock

It has been a rough week for computers.  Two of the designers that I work with are having issues, and mine just got back from being fixed!  So I hope that your computer doesn't 'catch' anything either. 

Marieke of Romajo has had her external hard drive crash which means that she has nothing new to show you today.  However she has extended the sale in her store until it gets fixed.  So that is 50% off everything!  She is not sure how long it will take to get fixed, it could be one week, or it could be 6, so if you are interested in anything please click HERE and grab it while it is on sale.

During the birthday events over at Stuff to Scrap I was lucky enough to win a custom made it by The Scrappy Kat.  It took a little bit to decide, but I chose this picture as inspiration for her to go by.

So last week Kat sent me what she created.  It is called Proud as a Peacock and I Love it!  She did an amazing job.  But well see for yourself....

She put it into the Stuff to Scrap store yesterday, and I see that it is also 40% off!!  Click HERE to check it out.  You can also check out her website HERE.  I know that some of her CTs have created some freebies for it so be sure to look for them.  Of course once I got my computer back I just couldn't wait to scrap with it.  So far I have finished 3 pages.  Here is what I have done:

Little Green Frog Designs has had some beautiful templates on their facebook page.  I used 2 of them here. (the bottom two)  The other template was by Creative Memories

I just want to give a big thanks (again) to Kat of The Scrappy Kat, for all of the work that she put in to making this kit.  It is more than I was expecting.

Never Fear, Super Dad is Here

Before I start I just want to say, that I am addicted to my computer!  I am not on it a lot.  However when it was away getting fixed I was grieving my time away from it.  (Sad huh?)   The good news is that it IS fixed, and working better than ever.  so now I can tell you all about this SUPER kit.

Do you have an amazing Dad, Husband or Grandfather?  Then I have the perfect kit for you!  Leaving a Legacy Designs has a new kit out: Never Fear, Super Dad's Here. This kit is huge with over 70 elements, over 30 papers and an upper case alpha with numbers and a lot of symbols!  You can also grab a set of Father's Day cards.  Be sure to stop by her Facebook page today to pick up a fun bragbook set as well, as well as her Blog for the location of more free stuff.  Now how about a look at this amazing kit!

Do you need a fun Father's Day card for Dad? *Here are a set that would be perfect for Father's Day or to print off and hide in his car, in his wallet, mail to him at work...doesn't have to be Father's day to tell him he is Da' Bomb! The Brag Book pages can be found as a freebie on the Leaving a Legacy Designs Facebook page

 When I took a look through this kit, what jumped out at me was the versatility of it.  To show you what I mean, here are two layouts that I created using this kit.  As you can see they are definitely different! 

  Pretty incredible.  When I thought about making a freebie for you the first thing that came to mind was a frame with a comic look.  As I kept going though I  changed my thought a little.  Not only does Amazing, and One of a Kind apply to the men in our life, but it also applies to fireworks!!  So I kept that in mind and I created this:  (click on the preview or click HERE to download)

 Here is wishing all of the Dad's and Grandfathers, and anyone that plays that role, a Happy Father's Day.

Feeding Frenzy

Do you know what happens when Mommy Me Time Scrapper and Digital Scrap Fun work together on a zoo collaboration?  Two huge kits filled with animals.  They each took a different direction in their kits.  Mommy Me Time Scrapper designed Feeding Frenzy: Safari.  Like the name suggests it focuses more on animals in the wild.  Digital Scrap Fun designed Feeding Frenzy: Petting Zoo and she focused on a petting zoo as her inspiration.  Here are these amazing kits:  (All the images are linked to the store.)

 And here is a close up of what all comes in Feeding Frenzy: Safari by Mommy Me Time Scrapper:

 Not 1 but 3 Alphas!

Meagan's Creations has also created these amazing word art clusters.  They can also be found in the store.

 Here is what I created with these kits:

And I even had time to create these cute embellishments.  Click on the preview to download:

More Basic Kits from Romajo

I am in the process of getting my computer ready to go and get fixed.  :(  I am hoping that I won't be without it too long!  I am tired of making sure everything is backed up, so I thought I would get a jump on this post.  Which means you get to see the new kits earlier, and are able to grab the freebies sooner as well.

Marieke of Romajo has been busy working on more kits for her Basic Kits series.  This week she has Brown, Green, and Orange releasing!  The orange kit was made to cheer on the Dutch team in the European Championships Soccer.  Their first game is today! 

And if that isn't enough she is having a contest on her blog.  Go HERE to check it out, and to collect more freebies created with these new kits.  Here is a preview of the new basic kits:

And just to change things up this time, I am going to give you the freebies first, then I will show you what I did.  So here are the freebies that I made using the Basic Kit - Green, and the Basic Kit - Orange.  Click on the preview to download.  (The are both included in one download)

And I also created this QP for you.  I also want to give credit to AK Designs for the template design.  You can download the QP by clicking on the picture. 

And here is what I did with these kits:

I can't wait to see what colours are next!  I also wanted to remind you about the speed scrap that Kimberly of Leaving a Legacy Designs is hosting.  It is tonight (June 9, 2012) 6PM PT/ 7PM MT/8PM CT/9PM ET  It is the first speed scrap that she is hosting and I know that she would love for you to come.

So here I go to drop off my computer.  I think I am in withdrawal already and I am still typing this.  Wish me luck.
