Locally Grown: CT Inspiration Layout

A release from a couple of weeks ago is Locally Grown. This gorgeous kit is filled with deliciousness! Fresh vegetables, lots of garden stuff and more in the most amazing natural colors. This kit is like a vegetable garden itself!
Also the papers are great to play with! You can layer the different colors and patterns in many ways to get lots of different layouts: 
Lately I've been cooking lots of Italian recipes and I'm using vegetables I haven't used before. Not that everything turned out wonderful, but most of the vegetables we eat are delicious. So here's a layout I made with one of my kitchen experiments:

Simply Amazing: CT Inspiration Layout

It's time to show of a recent released kit in the Raspberry Road Designs shop: Simply Amazing!
The wonderful colors of this kit are easy to use for all kinds of photos and themes and you can also give your layouts a bit artsy touch with the brushes and the more artsy looking papers in the paper pack.

I just love the paper with the folded corner, so I couldn't wait to get playing with it! In combination with a cluster and some of the brushes and other bits and pieces I think it turned out wonderful:

I hope you like my inspiration layout!

Beautiful Life Quickpages

Good morning fellow scrappers!

This is Bre here, and I am super excited to show you something I've been working on for a little bit.

As I mentioned a few posts back, I have been incredibly inspired by Susan's Beautiful Life Collection. I honestly have lost track of how many layouts I have done with it (9, maybe 10? Could be more!). Just so elegant, and versatile, and truth be told, I know there are a few more I could make, but I really should give her other collections a chance, lol!

A few of the pages turned out so nice I knew I wanted to make them into quick pages to encourage some quick and easy scrapping, so HERE they are~ all bundled up and waiting for you to pick them up!

And here are the layouts they were based off of, so you can get a better idea of what they look like up close. You can click to get a bigger view:

What do you think? I hope you like them!

Thanks for taking a look at my creations. Since you made it through this whole post, I have a little gift for you:

You can download it HERE.

Have a great day!

Deck the Halls: CT Inspiration Layout

Happy snow day everyone!

Well, ok, maybe not for EVERYONE but any of our lovely readers are on the East Coast, you know it was a very blustery sort of day! The good part was, it really was a great inspiration to get some of my holiday photos scrapped.

Every year I struggle with what to do with all of the Christmas cards that come to my door. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE getting real mail during the holidays, and I don't really want to throw away these precious notes, but there's only so much room in my storage closet! So this year I decided to save them- scrappy style!

I made the page below using the Deck the Halls Collection. You can look at some of the elements HERE and the papers I used HERE.

Isn't it so nice to be able to look at these pretty cards all year long?

Now keep in mind, I used a few outside elements on the page (namely the alpha and the dec date stamp) but almost everything on this layout is from Susan's gorgeous Deck the Halls Collection.

It really is such a large and beautiful kit- it's so big she even created a silver hued add on that you can look at HERE.

I hope you liked looking at my page, and that it inspires you to get started on your holiday scrapping, if you haven't already. I will be back later in the week with some more inspiration, and maybe a little surprise!

Sweet Dreams: CT Inspiration Layout

There are so many beautiful kits in the Raspberry Road Designs shop, that I sometimes don't know which beauty I choose to show you! This time I will show you a kit that has released a couple of weeks ago: Sweet Dreams. With the gorgeous colors and theme it is the perfect baby kit!
Also the papers are very nice and combine great with the elements. You can create a traditional layout but there are also papers for scenery layouts!

I have scanned a lot of photos of my childhood and I love playing with them. So for my layout I used my first photo! I was just born here. I combined three different papers for my layout. I started with the dark blue one with the moon. Then I added the yellow one on top of it and changed the blending mode to soft light. Then I added the light blue one with the rainbow colored circle and used the blending mode hard light.
