Our House

Angel Hartline Designs has just released a new digital kit called 'Our House' it is a collaboration with JW-DigiScraps and is now available at Digital Scrapbooking Studio. It is so full of cheerful colour, the sweetest embellishments and a huge assortment of word art and strips - perfect not only celebrating the love the surrounds your home, but so many other special moments in your life too.

This layout is my home - looking a little dreary after our long cold and wet winter...the garden is a little sad too! - but hey! it doesn't look all that bad when you combine it with this fun kit..... and that gorgeous tree embellishment.

....and this layout is a photo taken 3 years ago of those I hold near & dear - but it is a favourite!! and now I going to frame this layout and hang on the wall in my happy room so I can enjoy it always.

and what about this?? - blue & brown make a lovely serene photo combination don't you think??

I'm looking forward to playing a little more with this kit - it is so much fun!!

New Layouts to Share

I am going to be heading off to "sunny" Queensland in a few days - without my computer and no internet connection - will I survive???? - I'm going to have to.... but it is going to be very tough!!!!! Before I sign off for a few days I wanted to share a couple of new layouts with you...they were created using kits by some of the wonderful designers you will find over at For The Luv of Art -

This sweet little mini kit called "Snuggle Time" was designed by Dana Miron and is just perfect for those baby boys in your life ...

this little cherub is the son of my daughter's friend...he wasn't to sure of me and my camera - all the same how cute is he??? and this kit??

The other kit I wanted to share with you is called "Victorian Veranada" designed by Theresa Hernandez - I love the "olde world" charm of this kit and it has the most gorgeous pink flowers in it!! - did you know I love pink??? LOL!!

...and of course it was perfect to use with my collection of Heritage photos - this is the only known photo of my Great Great Grandmother - so it needed a special page.

A Little Card Making

....well I am slowly on the mend - I'm heading into my 4th week of this flu and really and truly that is enough!!! - I've still managed some playtime - nothing big but very enjoyable thanks to my Sweet Friend Janet Carr of Little Feet Digital Designs and her brand new kit "Dear Sweet Friend". This kit is adorable and it inspired me to do a little hybrid card making. I had so much fun.... and when I made the "Friends" card it took me back to my childhood it was like cutting out paper dolls all over again!!!....I think I was always destined for paper and scissors :)

....this photo shows off the detail - I created these cards by printing off multiple 4 x 6 copies of each design - then I freehand cut around the main embellishments and adhered back over the top with some foam adhesive - just to give the cards a little
3D effect.

I really LOVE this kit...It has some wonderful "pink" touches ( just for me LOL!! ) but so many cute embellishments the stitched heart border and the little clothes line just for starters. I can't wait until I have some time to create some layouts with is a sneak peak of the kit...and don't forget to pop on over to where you can purchase it for yourself.
