Sketchabilites {112}

I just love the sketches over at Sketchabilities...  they're inspirational, and always super creative!  

I needed a little 'therapy' tonight...  so instead of designing, I scrapped!  If you're like me, it helps sometimes to scrap your mood.  It's kind of personal (although) I didn't add any journaling, but I think it turned out lovely.  I have to ask myself...  how many people out there are 'tied together with a smile'?  You know...  the ones who are 'always fine'...  and always have a smile on their face?

I'm praying for each one of us.

I used my His Purpose Value Collection to create this layout...  but I did add a couple brushes that aren't in the kit.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Many Blessings,

I finally did it!!  I started our 2014 album...  some of you may know that I haven't been that great at keeping up with projects like these.  My goal?  Make a one or two page layout with a snapshot of each month in 2014...  Yes, I started small.  No way could I do a Project 52 or 365 right now...  so, at the very least, we'll have a fun re-cap of our year!  

Before I show you my yummy two pager (if I do say so myself!)...  I want to tell you... that Digital Scrapbook Place is having an Easter SALE!  Take advantage! 


There's even some eggs that hold more fun stuff if you can find them...  they are hidden throughout our forum.  Check out all of our challenges...  there's participation bonuses and loyalty stamps for you...  AND you get some scrapping done!!


Okay, so now that you know you can get quality and creative products on SALE this month...  here's my layouts! 

Of course you can get my Everyday Matters line of products...  even the templates...  at DSP...  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and look!  

Many Easter blessings...

Everyday {Matters} Collection

Happy Monday!  Well, it's supposed to be spring here in Central Illinois... but the weather is saying otherwise!  Needless to say, we are looking forward to making lots of memories in warmer weather! 

I want to introduce you to my Everyday Matters line.  It's all about the 'everyday'...  the small moments, the daily grind, the little smiles, the dinners, and the laundry.  These moments vary in the extreme from mundane and boring to exciting and tremendous...  and it's all about documenting these moments!  

These products can be used on P52 and P365... or just a monthly recap (which is what I plan on doing!) of our lives.  Simple elements, fun papers, journal cards, photo overlays, quick clicks, and themed add on packs.  I will be starting a challenge (coming soon!) that includes a participation bonus...  anything that will help you get motivated to scrap those photos and memories!

Here's the product line so far...

Everyday Matters

 Everyday Matters Kit



Don't forget to check out these awesome Quick Clicks made by my fellow designers at Digital Scrapbook Place!  These QC's can help you put together a whole multi-photo layout (even a 2 pager!) in no time!

Lots of fun stuff happening over at Digital Scrapbook Place...  just beginning?  No problem!  We LOVE to help and there are lots of tutorials to help, too!  Come on over and introduce yourself!

Many Blessings,

Go {Confidently}!

So it's been a couple month since you made that 'resolution'... I'm sure a lot of us made the same one - to lose weight and get fit!

I'm not alone, am I? Anyone else?

Well, here's a kit that will help you creatively document that journey. Lots of fun colors, patterns, and textures... perfect for layouts, art journaling, and even hybrid projects like Smash Books! It's called Go Confidently... because that's what I want to do and I hope you do to. I want to be confident and live the life God has planned for me!


Ready to get motivated and join me? I can't wait to see what you create!  

This kit is going to be the Common Grounds kit for March 1st-15th...  What does that mean?  It means if you make a layout or project with this kit, and you post it in the Common Grounds thread, you get a free coordinating Word Art just for participating!  Easy, right?? 

Want to check out the Smash Book I'm continually working on?  Here's the posts...  (oh, and, there's some FREE Weight Watchers Printables that actually coordinate with this kit in these posts!)

Many blessings - and Go Confidently in the direction of your dreams!

Sketchabilities {109}

The new sketch over at Sketchabilities is beautiful!  I couldn't resist...  so here's my take! 

Thanks for looking!!

Here's the journaling:
T.J. Oshie (#74) and Vladimir Tarasenko (#91) are teammates on the National Hockey League’s St. Louis Blues.  This year, they both had the honor and privilege to play ice hockey at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia...  Oshie for the U.S.A. and Tarasenko for Russia.  When they played eachother, T.J. had an extraordinary game.  He essentially won the game for the U.S.A. in a shoot-out.  I took this photo (yes, on T.V.!) because it defines TEAMMATE.  They may have been playing for different countries, but the bond they share as Blues teammates is undeniable.  I’m proud of these boys and I’m proud to be a Blues fan!  

Blessings and hugs!

To celebrate this lovey-dovey season...  Digital Scrapbook Place store is showing the love and having a 40% off sale!  It ends February 16th...  so go!

I want to show you a couple new things in my DSP store...

and I'm introducing a kit tonight that was requested by Jill (Evergreen100) and totally inspired by Nicole Young's sports kits.  She so graciously gave me permission to create a kit that is similar to hers!  I had a lot of fun creating this...  a lot of Wacom drawing...  and I feel totally blessed by these 2 ladies!

Hope everyone who has been affected by all these winter storms are safe and warm... and being creative!

We Were on a {Coffee} Break

We Were on a {Coffee} Break was my VERY first digital scrapbooking kit I designed...  it holds very special meaning to me for a couple reasons.  
One was, well, because it was my first design!  
Two, it's based on my FAVORITE TV show of ALL TIME...  what's that, you ask??  F.R.I.E.N.D.S!  Actually, that purple is super duper close to the purple in Monica's apartment...  
and finally, it has coffee in it.  Plain and simple...  I LOVE coffee!

Oh, and the name is just awesomely clever...  if you watch the show, then you know what I mean.
{I'm not judging you if aren't a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. addict, but you really should watch it...  all of it...  it's only 10 seasons worth of belly laughs.  Seriously...  so worth your time!}  
Why am I talking about this kit??  Well...  here's the best news of all...

and here's one of the layouts I created with it...
Have a great week!

Many blessings,
