Great layouts to try...




Sledding Adventures

    Cheri created this awesome layout.  She used deep tones for her background and a variety of winter blue scrap papers  which really set the mood for a sledding adventure.  

On the sled she added some descriptive words: "covered in snow-",  "hat jauntily sideways-", "boots on the wrong feet-", "Then home for hot chocolate!" I just love the way she used the sled and just think down the road when they are looking back at the memories they will get a kick out of the boots on the wrong feet and the hat jauntily sideways!

            Cotton Candy 

Who doesn't love Cotton Candy?  Rosalie caught some great pictures of her boys enjoying the sweet taste of cotton candy.  The colors are perfect with the soft pinks and blues. She used die cuts from my Cotton Candy file.  The titles, "Cotton Candy", "Sticky fingers", "sticky faces" are wonderfully placed on the page.  Notice how she changed the cotton candy?  Which I thought was so clever...she added cotton to  the top!  Making this layout good enough to eat!       CS00222






Birthday Girl

Jessica's two page "Birthday girl" layout is one to celebrate! By using bright vivid colors Jessica shares the happy occasion. To unify the top four photos she made use of the playful banners: frills by making it a birthday banner, all she did was add the letters for birthday.  Then continued her title with the circle tags and word "girl" below.

The ribbons at the top of the right photo bring the eyes to the focal photo.  By placing little birthday clippies on the edge of the photos she carries out her theme.  A cup cake accent is added to complete the two page layout.

Hard at Work

Michelle P. sent in this two page layout Hard at Work and received files of equal value for her share.

Using several die-cuts, titles and borders from the Handyman Tools pack  she created a layout that works!  The nuts & bolts border was cut four times in two contrasting colors and placed opposite sides of the page giving the layout some balance.  She randomly placed tool die-cuts and Handyman Titles to add to the theme.  The photos are accented with tool clippies,  which completes a fun layout to follow!  Thank you for sharing Michelle!

SO What's New?



Create your very own Accordion Easter Album by following along with the illustrated instruction included in the files.

The accordion album measures 6" X 3 1/8" folded, the cover measures 6 1/4"  X 4 1/4".    The album includes the cover and a three section album with a strip for binding, so that you can add as many sections to your album.  Although the cover was made to hold a six section accordion album so you may consider creating the album with out the cover.

Adorn the album with many pieces: a beautiful flourish, the title "Easter", a risen cross, a flower tag (not shown), two floral and butterfly borders, a lily, tulips, three other flowers, a fence, grass, a bunny with carrot, a chick, twelve large eggs with a variety of ways to decorate, a small egg with three ways to decorate, a rabbit's foot (not shown). 

The file has twenty eight die-cuts for you to have fun with not counting the album and the cover!  After downloading you will find the album is in two files since it is so big.  Unless you are cutting on  Robomaster or Wishblade the .gsd format is in four files so beware it is gigantic. 

The album is fun for children to receive or make one for a special friend.  In my personal album left the three small eggs, the bunny, the carrot and  the chick loose so that my children can play with them by placing them in different pockets. The Easter Accordion Egg album will remain a treasured keepsake for our household. 

The album sells for $14.99 but you can get it this weekend for 40 % off...actually all my files will go on sale tonight at midnight and be on sale all weekend long so you have time to get what you have been waiting for. 

Hope you enjoyed the layouts and the sale!
