Give Away Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! Melanie here with this weeks freebie. Since this is the last day of the month, I thought it would be fun to share a desktop for next month! I decided to not go shamrock crazy, but kept some green in the design and throw one little shamrock in on the calendar. I used Mary's cute kit Shopaholic and it's add-on to create the desktop.


Shopaholic Add-On

The download comes with 2 desktop sizes - 1024X750 and 1280X800 - both in PNG format. The calendar is also a separate PNG so you can add it on or leave it off. Which ever makes you happier. Just click the preview to get to the download and have a fantastic week!

Throwback Thursday: Adventures in Reading

I know, I know, I should be done with this calendar by now, but having a new baby set me back a little so forgive my layout made for my calendar again!
I have been looking forward to using this kit for so long!  I love the bright colors, the beautiful alpha and all the references to reading.  I loved finding pictures from my stash of my in-laws reading to their own children and now to their grandchildren.   With school in full swing, I bet you can find a way to use it too!!
Find Adventures in Reading and the Add on at the ScrapMatters store.

oh, and I also used the 12 months of fun template (resized) to create this layout.

Inspired by...Templates!

Megg here with this weeks installment of...
For me, the most difficult thing about scrap booking is being inspired to do so. I feel like I have so many other things that take my time between being a mom, wife, having to work, and being involved in my church, that scrapping often gets put a back burner. So what do you do when you want to scrap, but don't have that creative spark going? Channel your creativity through using a TEMPLATE of course. If you don't know how to use a template you can find tons of tutorials online, but I want to go a step farther than just using a template. For my example I selected a template from the weekly Tuesday Template Challenge for Feb 1st.

I took her design, but instead of just using a template, I used it as inspiration to make a two page spread instead of just one page. I always take tons of pictures and can easily add more pictures to any template that I am working with. All it takes is a little inspiration and before you know it, two pages done. And you can start running in different directions again. Enjoy!

I used Mary's kit A Photo Day, and the image below is linked to her store. If you look around, she has lots of great template packs as well. Have a great week!

Giveaway Monday

I cannot believe it is Monday already! Just where does the weekend go any more? If you are anything like me, time just keeps passing by quicker and quicker with each and every day. Thats why, especially around this time of the year, people are participating in Project 365. What exactly is Project 365? Its simple, its taking a photo every day and then scrapping about it. At the end of the year, you'll have a beautiful album filled with all the photos that you took daily. Plum Dumpling Designs has created a beautiful kit called, A Photo A Day to help you jump start capturing your year.

I love this kit and have used it many times since owning it! I especially love how this kit is so versitle that you scrap your Disney photos! Seriously there are so many ways you can use this kit. To help jump start your creativity, Neverland Scraps has created two 5x7 brag book pages
Aren't they beautiful? I love them and cannot wait to add more pages to my ever-growing 5x7 album! If you would like them, you can pick them up here, but please make sure you check out all of Plum Dumpling Designs products at ScrapMatters!

Inspiration Wednesday - Weather!

Hi Everyone. Shannon here to help you give you some inspiration. I live in New England, and let me tell you, we've been hammered by snow. My kids have had about 7 snow days, and 1 delay day. This has been a crazy winter! How are things where you live? Do you also have snow (or ice like we have coming down today)? Is it warm and sunny where you live (can I come visit for the rest of the winter)?

For today's inspiration I would like to show you a layout I did with the snow. You can easily do a layout about your weather no matter what it is. Just make sure your camera is protected if it is raining..hehe

I used two of Plum Dumplings products for this layout. The snow flakes are from her Cut It Out Snowflakes.

The kit is On the Front Porch.
I just love how they worked so well together!! I'm thinking though that after today's ice storm I may have to do a layout with Summer Storm.

What is your weather like today? Show us your layouts!!
