TSGT Week 4

10 Jul

This week on “This Scrapper’s Got Talent” we are suppose to update a layout that we made, but weren’t happy with. This was an easy choice for me because I had recently went through my layouts, looking at my very first few, and decided I needed to trash them and do them again. I’ve learned a lot of things that I simply didn’t know about when I made my first layouts.

The rules were that we had to use the same photo’s we had used before. One had to be a blended photo. We had to use 2 kits. Nothing more, nothing less. Simple right? Right…

So here are my two layouts. The first one, is the one I did months ago. I love the colors, I love the kit, I didn’t love the finished product.


So I picked out two kits I wanted to use: “A Noise with Dirt on it” by Ponytails Designs, and “For the Boys” by Scraps by Andrea. And this is what I came up with. I’m just hoping that the judges like it as much as I do:



Busy week!

9 Jul

Wow it has been a busy week! And it’s only Tuesday…

I made it through “This Scrapper’s Got Talent” week 3 and moved on to week 4. I honestly didn’t think I would make it this far, and am really floored by the people they eliminated this week. I don’t envy the judges in any way. I couldn’t do their job, for sure.

I am really looking forward to this week’s challenge for the contest. It is to redo a layout that we’ve done before, using the same pictures. The twist is that we have to use 2 new kits and one of the photo’s has to be blended. I am SO glad I found a fun and simple way to blend photo’s! Now I just need to decide which of my layouts to redo. I know it will be one of  my first layouts, as I was looking through them the other day thinking about how terrible they really are. I’ve learned a lot in the past few months.

Another thing that happened this week: I officially joined the “A Fish Design” creative team!! I can’t wait to work with the team and LilyAnn’s kits. You will be seeing a lot more designs coming across the blog that are from her store(s). She has a store at both Stuff to Scrap AND Scraps ‘N Pieces.

Last but not least, Ponytails Designs is releasing a new kit this week and it is absolutely beautiful! Full of reds, greens, pinks and cream tones, this kit is perfect for your summer photo’s. From gardening and strawberry picking to baking with the kids, this kit is amazing. Here are a few previews of the kit:

Templatopia Vol. 7!

7 Jun

Ponytails Designs is on a bit of a template-making streak lately and has been designing all sorts of templates. Be on the lookout for more sets coming up in the next several weeks! The latest set is Templatopia Vol.7. This one features hexagon shapes in various arrangements. It seems to be a big trend right now to add different shapes, such as the hexagon, in layouts. Challenge yourself to add in something a little different. Templates are just guidelines… you can change them up however you like!
