New CT & Layouts!

 Its been so long! I have been out of town and having a hard time getting a chance to do my scrapping. I applied for a new CT right before I left (silly choice for me to have done, but Im happy I  did) I am now on 3 CTs, MooTwo Designs, Miya J & the newest Groovy Scraps (Kimberly Cameron & Tracy Drane)

These two layouts were made using "Summer Smiles" by Kimberly Cameron of Groovy Scraps. Such a great summer-y kit. Great for those perfect summer pictures.

Watch for more great kits to come!

First Prints

 I am excited and happy to say, I received my first set of page prints today! I and happy with how they turned out. I had them done at I had them done in the Value Matte print as it is the cheapest (.99 cents a page) They do come with a small white boarder around the page, but I dont mind how it turned out. The images, papers, elements and text all looks great. I printed them 12x12. It is crazy to see how they turned out. Going from the little preview picture you get on Photoshop to the full 12x12, its great. lol Guess thats all I can say is, its great! Yeey

I also just picked up my 2nd kit for my Moo Two Designs CT. Im excited to get working on it too. Yeey!

Two for Challenges

I made two layouts for one of my forums. They are for challenges.  This first one is a template challenge. I had the perfect picture of Garrett in mind for the layout, once I made it, the picture just wasnt the one.. So I had to redo it several times, several colors till I found this one.. Its not the greatest picture, but it fits, Grrrr. lol I really like how this one turned out

template by: Momma Trish
kits used: Little Cabin by Krathryn Estry
Clothes element by: Mommy Me Time Scrapper
word art by: Vickie H Fernandez

The second one is for a layout of the week challenge. I was at loss cause I do not have any kits with tools and all the pictures the little girl is using tools and working on her Daddy's dirt bike.  But I think I made it work. 

kit: Spring Fling by Christine Smith

Im pretty excited and kinda nervous. I ordered my first set of pages.. I went with one site that does .99 cent prints, however they leave a boarder on it.. I hope they turn out well.. If not, Ill just reprint them else where.. This was just so I would have something to take with me to AZ and show off.. I printed the first 3 pages for Garrett's book and the above mentioned template page. :D Hope they turn out well!!

It just occurred to me that I havent posted the first page to Garrett's album. So I will post it now.

I also managed to get page 3 done today. Im pretty happy about this. Couple more pages and then Ill be sending them off to be printed. Which excites me :D

I also seemed to have missed posting layouts I made for my CT- Miya J. ((oops)) So here they are.

Garrett's Albums- Page 2

I am so happy! I finally got the 2nd page for my son's baby album done.. LOL I know, Im excited over two pages. I just couldnt make up my mind on a layout and kit. Well I finally nailed down both.. I found this great kit for baby boys, "Baby Mine" for boys by Just So Scrappy. It has SOOOOO much to choose from. Great papers, elements and the alphas are cute too.. The template I used is "Template 20" by Scarpvoyages. I know the journaling is to small to read in the preview, but its the short version of how our day went leading up to the birth of our son.

Zoom Zoom!

Ive been working on my first layouts for Moo Two Designs. My first designer is Gloria Val Verde ( and I picked her "Zoom Kit" as my first project. Let me be the first to tell you, I love this kit! It comes with so much and can be used in so many different ways. I love the papers, elements and who couldnt love the alpha that comes with it?
Zoom Kit by Gloria Val Verde (find it here:

Here are my layouts for this fabulous kit! Layouts 1 & 2 were made in Digital Scrapbook Artist 2. Layout 3 was made in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

The 3rd one, I used a template by Kat's Creations as my inspiration for the layout.

Go take a trip to the Moo Two store and snag this kit. It has so many uses, from boys to girls, toys to cars, road trips, man the list could go on forever!

A Sweet Christmas

 On Moo Two Desgins Forum, we do a template challenge each month. This is the template for June/July. 
Its a really easy template and would work for any occasions! 

Template by: Gloria Val Verde (
Kit: "Sweet Christmas" by Seachell (

These pictures are from Christmas 2008. My mom made her 3 grandkids baby dolls.  The little guy in blue is for Jace, my nephew. The girl in the back with blonde hair is for Holly, my niece. The brown haired one is for my daughter, Ellie and looked just like her.. lol Hair and all. In the top pics are Jace & his little one, my sister & her daughter's doll and Holly and her doll. (I know the last pic is REALLY blurry, but its all I have)

I really love how this is for Christmas but isnt the traditional holiday colors! Great kit! And it has soooo many cute elements.

Barnyards across the world- pt 1

Here on the farm, the Moo Two, farm that is another one of their challenges is called "Barnyards around the world." Its a great way to learn about other animals and places in the world. Here is mine.

Paint The Barn- June/July

On Moo Two Design Forum they has so many challenges, one is called Paint The Barn. They supply a mini kit for you to make a layout with or a color pallet for you to design a kit using (depending if your a CT or a designer) Here is my layout for June/July.

I have discovered that my scrapbook style, even digitally, is still very similar to my traditional style. I just cant get into the new trend of clustering and layering all the elements together.. Ive tried and tried and it never looks right.. But eh, guess my style is just fine, right :D

Miam Miam OKC

 I just finished up two layouts for a OKC for Zette ( ). The is is called "Miam Miam" Which is "Yum Yum" in French. The first layout I really like but Im not to sure about the second. Im still trying to get the hang of clustering and was trying to use many of the elements. I still need practice clustering!

 I am excited tonight, even after the long day I had. I have applied so far, for 2 Creative Team Calls. I still feel pretty new to be applying for such an experience position. However, I feel that I can do it. In fact, I look forward to the opportunity to doing so.

I did not finish any layouts today, though I did work on two pages quite a bit. I actually had one almost finished last night, but this morning found out my computer restarted its self for routine updates.. Of course, I did not save my work before ending the night. So I started over today and actually am liking the new layout better. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive!

Stores to check out:
Ahhh Scrap!

So many more great stores to visit! Ill add more later.

The paper & the "blue" element are from "Moody Blues" by Shabby Princess

This last one is the first page for my son's scrapbook. Im happy with its turn out as well.. The papers are from "Little Cabin" by Kathryn Estry (youll see this one used alot) and the layout is one of Rina Kroes from Scrapbook-Elements.

I am going to try and focus on my son's album as well as our wedding album. I am throughly enjoying digital scrapbooking.

I need another blog....

Like I need a hole in my foot.... This blog is going to be for my digital scrap designs. It has occurred to me
that most everyone has a blog to display their work. So Im going to start posting my good stuff here, along with credits for the kits, elements, etc.

Im really happy tonight. I bought a super cute kit that I cannot wait to use, along with 2 sets of templates. I am so excited to finally get serious about this digital scrapbooking! My son's book & our wedding album are my first big projects.

I almost applied for a CT (Creative Team) tonight, which is what actually prompted me to start a design blog. I decided not to apply just yet. Im to green at this digital scrapping business and need to educate my self more as well as get my style established. I look forward to the day that I feel comfortable enough with my style and work that I can apply for a designer's CT!
