Charity Template pack available at Scrap-N-Pieces

From the designers and Scrap-N-Pieces and Stuff to Scrap:

We have a dear friend and fellow designer that has been diagnosed with leukemia. She has missed a lot of work and so designers from Scraps N Pieces and Stuff to Scrap have come together to put together a fund raising kit to benefit our Dear Friend. She is a great designer and a good friend to all of us. She is having to take a break right now from work and from designing to take care of herself and we hope the funds raised from this template pack will help benefit her in some small way and show our appreciation to her for all she has done to help and support us.

This template pack contains 40 - 12x12 templates and 4 - 8.5 x 11 templates in PSD, TIF, PNG, and PAGE formats. You will get tons of use from them and be able to use them over and over again. Be sure to tell your friends to come pick up this great deal on some awesome templates and help out our friend in the meantime. Template pack is $15 regularly, but on sale for $11.99 right now. That makes it less than 30cents per template!

You can find this great Template pack at Scrap-N-Pieces

From poki:  Being a template lover like I am, I didn't even have to think twice about purchasing this wonderful pack of templates.  You won't be disappointed!

Digi Deborah Designs has a fairy tale sweet kit called


as one of the kits included in the Scrap TakeOut Diner's Club for the month of August.

I featured Mike's great niece Maggie, all dressed up for a Daddy Daughter Dance!  I also used a template from Digital Designs by Amber Morrison called KEY LIME PIE

Berry Sweet Scraps designers

I had two assignments as a Lady Bug at Berry Sweet Scraps - First was Clooney & Me.  I picked her kit BUGABOO since I love bugs, well butterflies and dragonflies, not so much other bugs.  The kit is available at Berry Sweet Scraps



And of course, I had to use my butterfly pix in the layout ... here's my project for BUGABOO

Photos taken in the butterfly garden at Christ Episcopal Church in Temple on October 3, 2010.  Unfortunately due to construction at the church, and the road next to it, the butterfly garden is no longer there!  Sad!!!

My second project for the month from Berry Sweet Scraps  was with Oopsie Scrapsadaisy.  I chose


for my kit - and it was a fun one!  I also used Roseytoes Designs GO TEAM template

I have always loved combining red and lime green!  Blake loves to come to Nana's in the summer, so he can go play at the Belton Waterpark (I would like to go play at the Belton Waterpark too, but I would look a little silly I think!)

New from Digital Designs by Amber Morrison

Amber has a great new template pack called


available at Scrapable

Amber's templates are always so full of details and are super easy to use!  Here is my layout that I did with Amber's template and Baby Cakes Scraps AUGUST EVENING - which is the Daily Download at  Berry Sweet Scraps (links are good for 72 hours so there is still time to get most of this gorgeous kit ... it will be in Baby Cakes Scraps store in September)

BCS kit reminded me so much of the End of Summer "painted skies" that I just had to use this photo from my trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in May 2009.

Gotta Grab It Sale at Gotta Pixel

Both Roseytoes Designs and Jen C Designs have kits in the Gotta Grab It Sale at Gotta Pixel... the same color palette, but they couldn't be more different from one another!  I really love this color palette, so it was easy for me to work with both of the kits!

First up is Jen C Designs kit called TEACHER'S PET - it's the perfect kit to capture those "first day of school" memories this year!  Jen has 8 packs in the sale, each priced at $1 until August 14 (better hurry)  Her collection includes:

I made my layout for Blake's First Day of Kindergarten before Jen had her templates ready so I used one of her AUGUST TEMPLATE GRAB BAG templates.

Here is my layout ... I can't believe Blake will actually be starting first grade this year!  It's amazing how quickly they grow up!

Now on to Roseytoes Designs kit called LOVE YOU FOREVER!  Same sweet color palette, but such a different kit!  Ryan has 8 parts to her LOVE YOU FOREVER kit, plus she also created some double page templates which are also in the Gotta Grab It Sale until Tuesday, August 14! 




I used the 4 x 2 TEMPLATES Vol 1, along with LOVE YOU FOREVER to create my layout called "Butterfly Heaven" -

Roseytoes Designs newest kit

Roseytoes Designs loves her sports if her kit GO TEAM is any indication!  She included 5 sports - baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, and volleyball with elements, paper, borders, and clusters for each of the sports.  Her gigantic kit also includes 4 alphas for each of the ten colors in the color palette ( a total of 40 alphas available) She also added on some journalers, word art, templates and hodge podge that work with all the sports! Amazing!!!  Here are some of the pieces in this gigantic kit!

I did two layouts with this kit -  just have to chuckle everytime I see this photo of Blake (at 4) during his first (and maybe last) T-ball season.  Baseball just didn't seem to be his thing!!!

And here's one using one of the GO TEAM templates

Roseytoes Designs just recently released some CU JOURNAL CARDS - very handy no matter what kit you are using!  And they are CU ok!

Here's a layout that I did

This layout features Roseytoes Designs HEART OF SPRING - be on the look out for this one to return soon as a bundle (with wordart, borders, clusters, more elements ... lots of extras added in!)

Jen at Jen C Designs has been a very busy girl!

And that keeps poki very busy too ...   Her latest was


which was part of the Ginger Scraps Buffet for August. 
 (The buffet is closed but the kit pieces are available at Jen's store at Ginger Scraps!)

The boys are by no means competition swimmers, but they do love their backyard pool!

This layout also uses one of the templates in Jen C Designs AUGUST TEMPLATE GRAB BAG

Jen has her


kit in all her stores now ... check it out at Gotta Pixel (on sale!)

Here's my layout that I did for LITTLE MERMAID - I love this island just off the coast of Belize where I went snorkling with my friend Lizanne! 

The layout also uses Jen C Designs ONE HIT WONDERS template #1

Gotta Grab It is out at Gotta Pixel tomorrow, so I guess I will be back then ...
