Hey Everyone! Welcome to my portion of the DSA March Blog Hop: Shades of Play. When I saw the color palette and theme for this month, I couldn't help but think of our youngest little ones and how much they love to paint. Watercolors are a HIT around here! So that's where the painted inspiration came from. :)
Happy 1st of March friends. It's that time again. Another awesome Pixelscrapper blog train for you. This time with an oh-so-pretty country wedding theme. You can find the full list of contributors at the blog train forum.
Layout made using my blog train portion.
I had so many ideas revolving around this theme that I could barely contain it. In fact, I couldn't contain it but that's another blog post altogether. For now, here is my contribution to this month's blog train.
This mini includes 5 papers and a bunch elements, some of which are a vellum mat (I used it to make the heart & circle cutouts in the layout above), wooden elements, charms on a string, a mix of word art, some flowers and leaves, "forever" bunting and of course - a wedding cake.
I also have a Facebook freebie for ya! If you're not already a fan, then head over and like the page to grab these coordinating journal cards.
Hope you have fun making some great layouts with all of the parts to this blog train.
Can you believe it's the end of February already? I cannot. It seems January took its sweet time while this month was running for its life...lol!
I know it's only 2 days til the blog trains kick off, but I am taking the whole month of March off from designing and really wanted to finish up this designer challenge before that. The challenge? Pick a kit from one of the Pixelscrapper designers and make a mini add-on.
Layout using Spring Fields bundle + add-on
I chose Marisa Lerin's Spring Fields. I really liked the colors in her kit. Plus, I was thoroughly inspired by my own longing for spring to make an appearance and this cold, wintry weather to be gone for good!
Hello, hello! I have a new release today all ready for your lovable, fun and most memorable wedding photos and it's 25% OFF for one week only!
This kit started as part of an upcoming blog train (coming March 1st!) and I found that I just kept creating and creating and pretty soon it was way too much for a blog train portion. So I changed up the color palette (gotta love design-seeds, right?) and theme and can now share Shabby Wedding with y'all!
♥ Everything in this kit has been thoroughly QC'd and is ideal for both printable or digital use. ♥
This kit has a full alpha, 22 papers and over 70 elements in shades of teal, pink, peach, pale yellow and cream. Sixty-something of them are unique with additional color & style variations. I always like to include multiple colors on some of the basic elements because I often think, What if I was using this kit? I like options without having to go through the re-coloring process.
The kit paper pack has 6 textured solids, 15 pattern/mixed papers and a lovely shabby wood texture with teal details. I really ♥ the wood texture!
Some close-ups of the goodies.
Alpha includes all upper & lower case, numbers and some symbols.
BONUS PAPER PACK
I created quite a few additional papers for elements, borders and such. As always, I threw them together in this bonus paper pack for you. You'll see quite a few of them in action in the Layout Love section below.
Coming up in this weekend's issue of the Simply Love Scrapbooking newsletter is a sweet set of coordinating journal cards! Sign up now to make sure you get them when it goes out.
I really love journal cards. Both making them and using them.
Some Layout Love
This kit has lots of versatility to fit all kinds of shabby, spring and even beach wedding themes. Go fun and playful or simple and sweet! Wherever your inspiration finds you. :)
Enjoy and share with your friends! Until next time...
Happy Monday Friends! This morning has been a wild one for us already. Woke up late for an appointment, rushed around to get kids ready, only to realize that my husband had the car seats in his car so we were stuck. Whew...what a way to start the week.
Anyhow, with the appointment a no-go, I had some extra time to work on this Pixelscrapper flower template challenge. I already had a layered flower that I made using tape strips for an upcoming blog hop (sneak peek in the sample below), so I decided to turn it into at template for whoever wants it.
Hey y'all! Valentine's day is right around the corner and with it I'm sure many great pictures. I bet you'd enjoy some Valentine freebies to go along with them, right?

If you love the vintage feel of the cluster freebie, you'll love Ginger's new Vintage Valentine kit as well.
She also has a great cluster pack that coordinates with this kit. I know one thing, she sure knows how to cluster!
And freebie #3 is from me. Layer styles in both glossy and lightly textured vellum paper that coordinate with the Always Be My Valentine kit by Couric Designs. This style pack is commercial use friendly, so don't miss it! There's a lovely taupe color in both the glossy and vellum that will go just as well with Ginger's Vintage Valentine kit.
Here's a little closeup on the vellum...
