Who-Village releasing at GingerScraps!

December is here! Christmas is just around the corner - and things are chaotic as ever in my house - how about yours? Between Halloween, MN Hunting, WI Hunting, Thanksgiving, and leaving for Arizona in 13 days - things are CRAZY. Not to mention I know have two of my three children on amoxicillin - boy are we having fun yet?!

Anyways - with December brings a new buffet at GingerScraps!! I had the privilege to work with a bunch of the pieces this week - and I must admit - they're all AWESOME! I had such a blast working with them - it put me in the Christmas Spirit (despite the craziness at my house!) Here are a few of the items I worked with (all images should be linked to the store):

And here is one page I created using these pieces (and a few others!) My Little Grinch - she looks so young in this page! Hard to believe this was 3 years ago alraedy! I think we need another outfit like this - what do you think?! (hint hint GRANDMA!) And here's another 2 page LO that I made using a bunch of other pieces
And last but not least - heres a link to all the buffet pieces - did I mention they are only $1 EACH! Hurry and grab them NOW!!

2012 Calendar Templates

So I made some calendar's last year for Christmas gifts - and I thought they turned out pretty darn cute (if I do say so myself!) I've debated back and forth about doing them again this year - and had decided maybe not - not sure if its good to give away calendars year after year - thought maybe it would get boring? I don't know - any thoughts (comments APPRECIATED!)

Well then I was inspired to use Jen's (from Graham like the Cracker) 2012 Calendar Bottom Templates - I had this great idea to turn one of the LOs I created into a calendar bottom!

And this is what I came up with - didn't it turn out SUPER CUTE?!? I thought so too! ;)

And here are the templates - linked right to Jen's store - so go over - pick them up yourself & get cracking on some Christmas Gifts!">

And if you like the pieces I used to create this calendar - check out my other post for more information on the kits & alpha I used!

Graham Like the Cracker is BACK!

Some exciting news for you today!! Jen is BACK! I've been missing her lately - she's been busy making all sorts of homebaked goodies - but she found some time to design! She made three different pieces for the Make a Kit at Scrap Matters - (all images are linked to her store!)

I of course JUMPED at the chance to work with her goodies again! I participated in the October Scraplift challenge at Scrap Matters - and came up with this:

I also used the ellies from this Wyld Web Design's kit (recolored the witch's hair slightly :))

It was fun to work with Jen's goodies again - I hope she has time to design more stuff soon!

Christmas in...August?!

So you've heard of Christmas in July - but I'm scrapping Christmas of 2008 - and it's August - close enough right? Anyways - I'm almost done with scrapping 2008 - so not quite 3 years behind! Hope I can catch up soon!!

So I participated in a Scraplift Challenge over at ScrapMatters and LOVED how this LO turned out!! The right side is the one I lifted, then for the left side I flipped and did a little changing and got a balanced LO! I love it!

Here's the 2 pages side by side:

And here are the individual sides (so you can see them a bit closer up!) They are also linked to my gallery if you have questions about credits or whatever :D

And of course to make this adorable page I had to use this adorable kit by Graham like the Cracker - it's called "Believe". I used the HUGE Collection which includes the kit (alpha, paper & elements), Worn Papers, Extras (extra alpha & extra elements).

This amazing kit alone has an alpha, 28 papers & 76 elements! The kit is $7.50 - but the collection is only $10.99 and you get a TON more! You get an additional 33 elements, an extra alpha, a distressed paper pack containing 8 seasonally appropriate papers. Last but not least there are also 4 templates to make scrapping your holiday memories a breeze!!

New Post :)

It's been a while since I've blogged - I seem to go in streaks! I scrapped some recent pictures and thought I'd share the page (I dont' scrap recent stuff too often - as I'm trying to catch up - and if I get sucked into the recent pictures I'm afraid I'll never go back!)

But I got the chance to work with this kit from Connie Prince - and once you see the kids' outfits that they had for 4th of July - you can see why I just HAD to scrap recent photos - the kit was just too perfect for them!

Here is the way to cute kit - I just love the crab and whale - I didnt get a chance to ues the whale on this page - but you can be certain it will be showing up in the future!! (you can click on the image to be taken to GingerScraps)

And here is the LO I created with it (plus the word-art add-on and the templates!) How cute is this? I just love it! The kids were too funny this day - and it was a quick 8 min photoshoot - but we got some good shots regardless! They took turns being sick over the 4th of July - so didnt get many good pictures then - so we had to take them the following week!

Head on over to my gallery to see the full list of credits!

Happy July - I hope you're staying cool!

Strive for Five - Template Mini-Pack

I threw my back out last weekend - so i didn't get to do as much scrapping for iNDS as I woukd have liked (or at all this week for that matter!) But because Char (from Wyld Web Designs) came out with these perfect multi-photo templates I was at least able to get one page done - and I really like how it turned out!

Here is Char's mini-template pack - available exclusively at Scrap Matters

I used this amazing kit by Jen from Graham like the Cracker called "For Him"

And to coordinate with the kit are these cool Worn Papers! I used these also!
