Misty O'Brien's "Geocache-tastic" & FREEBIE

Who would have thought I'd ever come across a geocaching kit! Well here it is and its PERFECT! I love the colors and this kit would also work for any outdoorsy type LO!

Here's what I made with it - I just had to scrap my first geocache find! :)

She also has out some "Everyday Button Flair - Studio 365" Who doesn't love flair? Misty's created these eight cute buttons to help you complete your Project 365 or everyday layouts.

Plus Misty has a cool "Kaleidoscopic" sale going on! Now with the purchase of the kit - you get these free quick pages! Make sure you add both items to your cart to get the sale price!

She has also added some glitter sheets & styles that match "Kaleidoscopic" and coordinated with Studio 365!

Misty has added an alpha to her "In the Purple Spotlight" kit - and its gorgeous! Check it out!

And last but not least - I have a cute little QP freebie - made from Misty O'Brien's "Flirtatious"

Graham like the Cracker's "Little Princess Sighs"

Jen originally created this kit while she was still at GingerScraps - and it was always on my wish list - well now she's BRINGING IT BACK! I was so excited to see this kit be re-released - I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it and scrap!!

I love the soft colors of this kit - and it worked perfectly for finishing to scrap Kaylee's 1st birthday (her 2nd party!)

Here's what Jen has to say about the kit: "I absolutely love the newborn stage. It is the best sound in the world when your baby is resting on your shoulder and they make a tiny little sigh. So this kit is for scrapping all of those delicious newborn moments! It is filled with lots of stars, ribbon, buttons, ric rac and other scrapping necessities for scrapping your newborn princess.

This kit 48 elements and the layered elements come with a drop shadow version.
This kit also contains 22 papers."

And here are the TWO layouts I created! I loved this kit!!!

This first one I used another one of Misty O'Brien's Number Templates - I told you I'd be using more of them! I just love the look of this LO!

The second LO was an awesome template challenge over at ScrapMatters - I just loved all the paper blocks - and especially loved the fact that it was a multi-photo LO! My specialty! hee hee

And ALMOST as exciting as that - if you visit Jen's blog now - you have up to 6 chances to win a free $25 gift certificate to Persnickety Prints! That means you can print you OWN scrapbook layouts! Plus they have a great flat-rate shipping - of only $5! I love that!! Hurry on over - because the contest ends TUESDAY MORNING!!

Some more fun Goodies from GingerScraps!

Just wanted to show off some of the layouts I've made lately - from some WONDERFUL new stuff at GingerScraps!

First off is my July title page for the project 365! I can't believe we've made it to July - and I can't believe I'm still sticking with this! I have to admit - it will be kind of a fun album at the end of the year!

Anyways - heres the page I made (using a new picture from our trip to South Dakota! Perfect for July!)

For this adorable page - I used the kit "Independence" by Kathy Winters Designs - when I first saw this kit I immediately thought it would be perfect for my July pages - and I was right! I'm loving how this month is turning out!! (Thanks also to Weeds & Wildflowers for their templates for p365 - I rearranged an "old" month to make this one!)

She's also made an adorable "Patriotic Alpha" and "Independence Decorated Word Art" that go perfectly with this kit (and that I also used!) Check them all out now!

The next layout I made was Trev's May Misc from 2008 (yes, I am THAT far behind! LOL)

I used the new kit "Beach Bound" by Modern June Creations - I just loved the colors & versatility of this kit!! I wanted to show all the fun "non-beach" related elements in this kit - so I used it for this page! Altho you can be sure I'll be using it to create a beach or water LO in the near future!!

Some awesome new stuff at GINGERSCRAPS!

I just loving working for the GingerScraps Team!! They are always coming out with the cutest things!! Here are the items I got to work with this week!! :)

First I used a new kit from Wyld Web Designs - her first kit out in a long time - and it was definitely worth the wait!

Is there anything sweeter to look at than a sleeping baby? This kit is inspired by all those sweet sleepy photos of our little ones! Soft, pastel colors decorate the chipboard elements in this whimsical kit that is perfect for the quieter moments with our babies.

I thought the kit would be perfect for scrapping the kids' first meeting with their new cousin Katie!

Isn't it just adorable?!? Hurry and snag it this week - because you get a set of 8 cardstocks that coordinate perfectly FREE with your purchase!! (images are linked - product preview should bring you to the store!)

Second - I have been eyeing up this kit for a couple weeks - and finally had a chance to use it! It's the new kit "Just like Sean" by Scrapberry Designs. I love the colors in there - and how boyish the kit is!! Easy to scrap Trev's pages - w/o using flowers!!

Unique, Different and One of a Kind. Just Like Sean. This kit was named after her oldest son and is perfect for those "Boys will be Boys" photos. Just Like Sean was geared towards those boys that are "tweens". You know, in between being a little bundle of energy to becoming quite the charmer.
