Bear Necessities: CT Quickpages & Freebie

Hello everyone!

Bre here, and I'm back to show you the rest of the lovely Bear Necessities creations like I promised. I have had such a blast working with this kit- don't let the adorable teddy bear theme limit your creativity (though who doesn't love a good, squishable teddy bear??? :P) - after 7 layouts, only two of my pages features teddy bears at all.:) This really is a versatile collection!

I loved the pages I made so much that I decided to make them into quickpages for the Raspberry Road Designs store::

























A closer look at my finished pages:
























If you like what you see, these can be picked up HERE in the shop.

As a thank you for looking, I wanted to share one of the other pages I made. This was such a quick, fun layout to make, and I'm so pleased that it turned out this way:





















Please download this HERE for a limited time. I hope you enjoy, and have a great rest of your week!

Bear Necessities: CT Inspiration Layout 2

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Bre here, stopping in to share another Bear Necessities page to give you a bit of mid-week inspiration. For this page, I wanted to make something that was not bear or baby themed:

























This page captures my stay at a fancy hotel in Richmond, VA, and as you can see, there isn't a teddybear in sight! One of my favorite things is taking a kit and using it in a different way- it's an awesome way to stretch your creative muscles!

Here are a few more pieces to this huge collection. Take a look HERE and HERE:







































I'll be back in a few days to share another layout, and maybe a little something to share later this week!

Bear Necessities: CT Inspiration Layout

Good morning fellow scrappers!

It's Bre, and I am in the mood for celebrating! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. There's nothing quite like it- the crisp morning air, the beautiful leaves, and of course everything pumpkin flavored coming out of the woodwork! But I digress...

I had the chance this week to scrap something else that I am celebrating this week:

























The second I saw Susan's adorable Bear Necessities collection, I knew I wanted to scrap about my pregnancy. The squishable teddies, coupled with the heartfelt collection of word art, make it just the thing for my little one's first ultrasound. Though we have had quite a few more at this point, and are gearing up for our 20wk ultrasound this week, this first one is so special to me, and I wanted a page that captured the magic I felt when seeing my little one for the first time. Bear Necessities was just the thing!

Take a look at these gorgeous elements and papers:






































Aren't they the sweetest things? And the best part is there's so much more in the shoppe! Head on over and take a peek!

PS: I have several more layouts that I will be sharing with this collection, and HINT- they are definitely NOT all baby related!

Cottage Rose: CT Inspiration Layout

I still had a collection on my wishlist and today I finally had time to create a layout with it: Cottage Rose! It's one of those gorgeous collections in the Raspberry Road Designs shop that is loaded with amazing natural elements in the most beautiful colors!

The combination of green, yellow and red is so gorgeous and the paper pack contains some wonderful patterned papers in these colors.

Here's my layout:

Tropical Vacation: Cluster Freebie

New in the Raspberry Road Designs shop is the amazing Tropical Vacation! When you see this collection you just have to go on vacation right away! Look at those colors!


And I'm also in love with the papers! This kit has vacation written all over it!



I still have to go on Summer vacation, but I couldn't wait to start creating with this collection, so I grabbed some photos from last year. We visited Lake Garda and I loved the colorful buildings and the palm trees in Riva del Garda. For me it was kind of tropical.


I thought it was about time to create a freebie for you. So I made a cluster for you for your tropical layouts:


You can download it here: Cluster Freebie

Moonlight Serenade: CT Inspiration Layout

This time I want to show you a collection that released a couple of weeks ago: Moonlight Serenade!
As you can see on the preview the kit has some amazing colors and is loaded! And the papers are so gorgeous!
On one of the beautiful papers there is a vaze with flowers and I used that as a starting point for my layout:

Rust And Roses: CT Inspiration Layout

I was really jumping up and down when I saw the latest release in the Raspberry Road Designs shop! Rust and Roses is so gorgeous! I'm a bit dissappointed I already finished the family book for my mother in law because I would have used this kit for it on many many pages.
Just look at the amazing collection of vintage elements and the warm colors. It's the perfect kit to create your layouts with your treasured family memories.

Although I already finished the book for my mother in law, I still love to play with the photos, so I used one photo from around 1925 that my mother in law found in a box at her mother's house a couple of years ago:
