Beginning my new CT position at STS

11 Aug

This week I started my newest CT position with Stuff To Scrap! I am so excited to be on the team, because it means that I get to work with awesome designers, awesome kits, and I have the privilege of helping host the monthly challenges!

This month I get to work with the August Collab kit “The Great Outdoors”. This kit is perfect to scrap those camping trip photos, your fishing trip photos, photos from that family vacation.. You know the ones. The kit displays beautiful rich blues and greens and is a great addition to any scrapping collection.

Along with this kit I also had the chance to work with the beautiful bright colors of “Sizzlin Summer” by Scrappin Serenity! Bright pink, orange, green, blue and white come together to accent your summer photos, whether they are from the beach or just a day in the park. The full kit is available at the store (linked above), but you can pick up a free set of frame clusters that I made right here:

And this is what you get with this beautiful kit!

So that wraps it up for this month’s Stuff to Scrap CT review! Make sure and check the forum on the 15th when I host next month’s Desktop Calendar challenge! I have a super cute calendar made for the challenge! 

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:
