New Products

Well, Jen and Lindsay have been very busy, which means I have too, so let’s get right to it!

For me, the hardest part of creating a layout is figuring out a design and getting started.  That’s why you’ve got to check out her Frames Templates!

She takes the guesswork out.  You can use them as is, or use it as a jumping off point like I did in this layout about my recent cruise.  (Did I mention I went on a cruise with my girlfriends?  It was AMAZING!)

Bon Voyage

I also used her Floral Frames and Masks (which I love!) and papers from A Little Birdy and Scapes, among other things.  Her stuff is so amazing!

Lindsay Jane has been hard at work as well.  Here’s what she (and I) have been up to:

Pink Champagne

Aren’t these colors just delicious!  They go perfectly with my daughter’s 2nd Halloween costume!

Lindsay was the Guest Designer at TDS Studio this month!  She created an awesome kit called Water Fun!  Here’s a layout that I have been dying to make for some time and her kit gave me just the inspiration I needed to get it done!

I’m working on another LO as we speak, so I’ll be back soon!  Thanks for looking!

New Releases!

Well, Jen Maddocks has been very busy creating many gorgeous new goodies, which means I have been creating lots too, so let’s get right to it!

First up are some new templates called All in a Row.  These are so awesome because they give you such a great foundation for your page and they are so easy to use.

Here’s a LO I did using papers and elements from both!

I am so loving that Statue of Liberty!

Jen also created a new kit for Digi ScrapBook Mania’s Summer Getaway Build a Kit.

Summer Getaway

I had fun with this one.  I actually extracted a photo of my daughter from a random beach shot and placed her on one of the papers from this kit, messed around with blending modes and came out with an awesome background photo, which is really a paper from this kit!  How cool is that?

Finally, Jen has recently put out these Scapes papers.  They are so beautifully textured; the possibilities are endless!


I did a similar technique on this LO.  I added a picture to one of these papers, changed the blending mode, and, using a layer mask, erased away portions of the real photo until it blended in with the Scapes paper.  I was amazed at how much better than the original photo it looked!

Well, that’s it for now.  I’ve got to get back to making new memories and then scrapping about them!  Be good!

New Creative Team!

Yay!  I am on another CT!  I will now be creating for Lindsay Jane!  Here’s what’s been going on:

Lindsay Jane has released several new kits and I have had the pleasure of creating layouts with them.  Here’s Red White and Blue:
