New Designer Contest week 4 - Free kit

The week four kits are up.  Voting will be tomorrow so be sure to hop over to Digital Scrapbooking Studio to grab some really cute freebies.  The link to the poll will be posted HERE.

Let me tell you about my kit. 
Being of Irish descent and actively researching my geneology, I would love to go to Ireland. I have always wanted to see the castles, ruins, and the green countryside of Ireland. This month my cousins have been there visiting and posting photos to their Facebook page, and...yes...I am green with envy! Can't wait to get together with them to see all the photos. So, with this in mind I made a kit featuring Ireland. I hope you like it.

There are two downloade, ellies and papers, so be sure to grab both. The download links are under my photo in the gallery here.

Here is a preview of my kit.

Sock Hop + a Freebie

School has started, there will be lots of great activities to scrap, in addition to the sports, so grab some pictures of those fun dances, and scrap away. Sock Hop from Busy Crafting Mommy Designs is perfect for all those great teenage activities and more. You can find it in the Scraps N Pieces store HERE.

 Here are a couple of layouts to inspire you. I used the September Challenge template and the Sock Hop kit both from Busy Crafting Mommy Designs for this first one.

 I used Sock Hop from Busy Crafting Mommy Designs and an adaptation of one of the Peekaboo Templates from A Fish Design for this second one.  All available in the Scrap-N-Pieces Store.

NDC week 3 -Staycation in Cody Country Free Kit

As you may know I am participating in the Designer Contest at Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  The Week 3 kits are up and you can download mine now. There are lots of fun kits to download so please go check out the kits and grab some freebies.

Our theme this week was Staycation.  Since I am from Cody, Wyoming, a truly western town, I had lots of choices. Cody is the gateway to the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park, the beautiful Sunlight basin, scenic Chief Joseph Highway, Beartooth Highway, and Wapiti Scenic Byway, which Teddy Roosevelt referred to as "the most scenic 50 miles in America". It is home to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West (a complex of five internationally renowned museums), Rendevous Royale, Cody Night Rodeo (yes, we do have rodeo here every evening from Memorial Day til Labor Day!), and so much more. Needless to say, I had lots of themes from which to choose. I probably would have made a Yellowstone kit but since I featured that the first week, I decided to do a rodeo kit to celebrate the Cody Stampede which occurs each year on July 2, 3, and 4th.

You will find an extra element in my kit just in case you have ever been here for the Stampede and would like an event specific element. Enjoy.

SNP Blog Train Harvest Time

The theme for the September Scraps N Pieces blog train is Harvest Time and you will find lots of lovely fall goodies at each station, so hop aboard and travel along with us.

My portion is a little kit.  I hope you like it. And, if you make something awesome using it I would love it if you would share a link to your site to see your work. :-)

Because of the size of the files, I separated them into two pieces for faster downloading. You can grab the Elements from Dropbox HERE and the Papers HERE.
also they are available on MediaFire HERE and HERE.

The Scraps n Pieces Blog Train was to start today (Sept 15) but because their website is down right now many of the participants have not been able to get the codes to post to their site.  I was able to get them from someone else, however you will find that there are some on the route who will not have their portions posted yet.  Please be patient and check back in a day or two.  In the meantime, feel free to download mine and have a play with it.

Below is the full list of your stops:

Free kit download - NDC week 2

I am doing the New Designer Contest over at "The Studio". This is week two and the theme was  Beach GetAway.  My kit is called La Jolla Holiday because my daughter lives in the San Diego region and I LOVE to go visit her there. It is such a beautiful area. La Jolla is near her office and we have so much fun going to the seashore there. I wish I was there now. heehee  I love the waves, and Children's Pool, the beaches, and all the gorgeous flowers growing wild on the cliffs.  We were to use a photo for inspiration so I used one of La Jolla Cove as you can see in the preview. Photo not included in kit,

If you like my kit you can download it in the forum at Digital Scrapbooking Studio. There are two downloads for my kit, one for ellies and one for papers, so be sure to grab them both. 

Photo linked. Just click it to go to my kit at The Studio.

Free Kit

Hey Y'All, I joined the Digital Scrapbooking Studio's Designer Contest. The theme is Travel and I thought since Yellowstone is the premier vacation spot I should spotlight a little nature trek there in my kit. And, since we see so many bicyclists here, I thought I would include a little cycling too.  I hope it will be a fun kit for your family treks too. You can download the kit in the gallery at "The Studio" HERE.

Layered Paper Templates 4 (CU)

I have been playing with the new Layered Paper Templates 4 from A Fish Design.  I used the Seasons of Change kit (also from AFD) with the templates to create these fun papers. You can find both kits in the store at Scraps-n-Pieces HERE.

I made these two layouts with my "new" papers.  So fun.
