New Layouts with fab new kits!!

Happy Friday everyone!  I've got tons to tell you about today since new kits are out today at ScrapMatters.  My first one is from Chelle (and it's the one I am totally drooling over - I {heart} this kit!!!) and it's called Sew Crafty.  Here's a look at the layouts I made.  I made THREE!!!

Next is this week's kit from Ro at Man In the Moon Desigsn and it's called Any Which Way.  I am smitten with how bright, fun and versatile this kit is.  It's amazing.  What did I do with it, you ask?  Here's my layout with Ro's kit and paper curves from Happy Scrap Girl's More Than Curves.

And last, but not least is another layout I made for the Extreme Layout Makeover challenge at ScrapMatters in which I featured a template from Stolen Moments - Scraps by Number: Just Call Me Sara and Haynay Designs kit, Falling For Pumpkins.

Have a great weekend, everyone and don't forget to go to ScrapMatters for some new scrapping goodies!!

Here's another kit that comes out Friday - Man in the Moon's bright and fun kit, Any Which Way.  Here's a sneak peek:

Can you get the gist?  Soooo cute!  Ro's got a "win it before you can buy it" competition. It's posted HERE in the ScrapMatters forum.  You'll have to wait until Friday to see what I did with it!  :)

I Made the ScrapMatters Creative Team!!!!!

Can you hear me shouting from here?!?!!  I cannot believe I made the team!  What an honor.  I'm totally still pinching myself.  :)  I'm still learning my way around the back-end of the SM site, but I'm thrilled to be on the team with so many creative and talented ladies!  I'll keep you posted about awesome new kits coming out from ALL of  the SM designers (so great to look behind the curtain - LOL) and will also tell you about some great activites and scrapping challenges.  Keep your ear to my blog....

Until next time....

I can't stand it!!!!

Okay, so I told you that Chelle's Creations is coming out with an awesome new kit on August 27.  And I told you I was creating the Sneak Peek for next week... but I can't wait that long to show you!!  This kit is so PERFECT for me.  And I do mean perfect.  Two of my favorite things: scrapping and [mystery topic].  Heee hee hee.  Sorry for the suspense, but I shouldn't really let the cat out of the bag yet.  .. oh, okay, since you're going to MAKE me, here's a look at the sneak peek (my first):

New kits!!!!

Happy Friday, everyone!  I've got a couple awesome new kits to show you today.  First up is Chelle's Creations new back-to-school kit, called - what else? - Back 2 School.  It's so darn cute!  Here's a look at the kit:

I love these vivid primary colors. And aren't those felty crayons to die for?  So cute.  Click the link above to go to ScrapMatters' store to get it.  Here's what I made with the kit - Drew's first day of PRE-preschool (LOL!):

Next up is the today's new kit from Scrapmuss Designs.  Maria also put out a back-to-school themed kit called Learn Twice.  Here's a look:

Aren't those muted tones yummy?  I even tweaked my photos to match the tones of the papers.  Here's what I did with her kit:

Pick yours up today at ScrapMatters' store.

See you soon!  Chelle has something AWESOME cooked up for next week and it's right up my alley.  Can't wait to show you the Sneak Peek (which is my job this week).  Ro from Man in the Moon also has a super cute kit coming out next week.  Stay tuned.....

Wow! Where has the last month gone?

Holy cow!  I'm so far behind here.  Life's been crazy with my career 360.  I'm taking insurance classes to become licensed to manage risk and coordinate insurance coverage.  I've certainly fallen off of the radar. Now that I've finished my last class (for a while, anyway!) and just have to take my last exam, I'll have more time again for scrapping.  (That's way more fun anyway!!!!)

I did want to show you a really cute kit that came out today at ScrapMatters; it's called Wizarding Magic.  Here's a look:

Isn't it super cute??  If you are lucky enough to get to Orlando/Universal Studios this is the perfect kit to scrap your visit to Hogsmeade or Hogwarts.  Plus, the movie is coming out this fall too.  OR, it's great for Halloween pictures too.  Got get it today!

See you soon!  Happy scrapping.  :)
