New Release: 12 Months of Fun Templates!!

Can you believe another year has gone by? At the end of December, I love looking back and seeing how much we've done and how much things have changed over the last year. These templates help you to review your last 12 months and so much more. Do you ever take too many photos and can't hardly narrow them down to 3 or 4 per event - try one of these and showcase 12 photos from your latest vacation, birthday, zoo trip, etc! How about a baby's first year? Or try K-11 like Lynett on my CT did! The possibilities are endless!
.png, .psd, .tiff and .page formats are included in 12 Months of Fun Templates. 

Remember...New Releases are 20% off Friday - Sunday at ScrapMatters!

12 Months of Fun Templates by Plum Dumpling Designs

Here's my year in review...

And some other fun ways to use these by Becca and Lynett!

Wishing you a fun, happy and healthy 2011!!

August: Using Funny Face

September: Using Indian Summer

February: Using He's my Valentine

March: Using Family Fun

 How have you used Mary's designs in your calendar creations?

I don't know about you but I have been very busy recently. Trying to get everything ready for the holidays and making some last minute gifts for my family. I have been scrapping some recent fall pictures to give my Grandmother. Here is one page that I recently completed.

I used Indian Summer, a wonderful kit that was part of the recent DSD grab bag.

Maybe some of you would like a quick and easy way to finish up some of those Autumn projects you have sitting on your hard drives. So today I am giving away a quick page based on my recent layout. It is perfect for fall photos and there is enough white space that you could add extra photos or elements as you like.

Inspiration In Your Everday

Megg here with this weeks inspiration! Sometimes I look at all of my pages and feel like they look the same. So I kinda try looking around the house to find things that could work on a page. It keeps things fresh, keeps me trying different things. I know designers often find inspiration in fabric, so this week I thought about how I could incorporate some fabric inspiration in my layout.

In my daughters room she has a quilt on her bed. It's pieced kinda differently. Instead of straight blocks, it has strips. Six strips all sewn together to make a "block" of multi-colored fabric. You're going to have to just visualize this folks, when I went to snap the quilt my daughters room was a wreck so no pics today! Just take a look around, there is inspiration everywhere... So inspired by the quilt, I came up with the following layout


Using the On the Front Porch. You can click on the preview below for a link to Mary's store!

Happy Scrapping Folks! Don't be afraid to take a look around and be inspired by your everyday!

New Releases: Snowflakes and Adoption

Hooray for December! I absolutely LOVE this time of year. And we've even had our first snowfall-ish. Not enough to make things fun or really difficult, but enough to catch them on our tongues. Today I have out a new release perfect for your winter pages or those Holiday cards that you're creating. 

Cut It Out Snowflakes by Plum Dumpling Designs

They are a really fun and unique way to dress up your pages. Here's my page...nothing like lifting a preview, huh?!

I just realized in the hustle and bustle of the holiday weekend, I forgot to show off my new Adoption Word Art! So here it is from last week! This word art is handy for other family layouts too and it coordinates with my Family Fun kit and word art. Awesome.

Just another manic Monday

I can't believe its Monday already. Where has the time gone this weekend? My name is Wendy and I am part of Plum Dumpling Designs Creative Team. This week I wanted to share with you a layout that I made using Plum Dumpling Designs Group Therapy Template Pack, Indian Summer, Crazy Date Stamps and flowers from Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow click here for credits

Isn't it cute?

I love these photos that I captured of my children while waiting for the neighbors kids to get off the bus. My youngest was so excited to play on a playground while my oldest thought it was beneath her. Little did she know, the hour that we waited for the kids, she had so much fun playing with the equipment rather than on the equipment.

My favorite memory of that day was laying on my oldest daughter's lap, looking at the sky, watching the clouds roll by, talking about anything and everything. While it isn't fun living in the South 75% of the year, this time of the year is worth it all because there is no overheating or being too cold...its just perfect!

Did you like the layout in this post? I sure hope you did because today I would like to give you the quickpage of that layout for your own Indian Summer memories

You can download your quickpage here
Make sure you stop on by Plum Dumpling Designs store and see what is new this week
