Coffee Arts Design's - Because of You and a FREEBIE

Because of You

Here's a delightful kit that is perfect for Valentines or just an every day layout.  You won't find the traditional reds here but there are lovely greys and browns and a small spattering of an off red. I love the super little teddy with his word art balloons. Make sure you click the title under the preview to grab your kit now.

I went the Valentine/Family route with my 2 layouts.
The mother in this picture is my daughter Heather at around 10 month. The daughter picture is my granddaughter Charlene taken around 18 months.  They look alike!  And that is me taken a few years ago.  So we have 3 generations in this layout.  Good memories.



This layout has my daughter Heather and her daughter Jordan taken a few weeks ago.  Another great family memory layout. 


And now for the goodie I have promised you.  I hope you can make some use of this Quick Page. I had so much fun designing it!

Coffee Arts Design's-Starlight StarBright & a FREEBIE



What a great combination-soft pastel colours and baby's bed time!  And a couple of adorable teddies to help baby sleep.  I love what Leanne has created with her new kit.  And with 64 elements and 17 papers the choice is huge. 

I hope you enjoy the couple of layouts I have created using this very pretty kit.

Here is a preview of the freebie that I've promised you.

Congratulations Oh Snap Let's Scrap!

Congratulations to a brand new site on the web.  A very unique place to just relax, take your time, no pressures on you for anything.  Where do you find this great place?  Right here:


And when you check in this is an introduction for what our site is all about.

"Hello!  Welcome to our little corner of the digital scrapbooking world.  You will find a forum for friendships and inspiration, as well as a gallery to share your latest creations.  You will also notice that there is NOT a store and we are okay with layouts using kits created by anyone, as long as you give proper credit in the gallery AND are active in the forum here.  We will look forward to getting to know you and to sharing your creative ideas.  Please excuse the dust and mess while we finish getting our new home decorated and up and running.  We plan to have a grand opening in February, so stay tuned"  

We are so excited about our new site.  I am hosting two challenges: 
1. Impromptu Challenge-challenge changes every month and bonus given created by myself.
2. Build-A-Layout Challenge-Each member uses one item to create a layout until the limit of 15 is reached.  We will be using a kit that our designers give away as freebies.  Another bonus from me. 

There you have it!  Something for everyone.  Hope to see you soon!  


My bonus for the Jan 2016 Impromptu Challenge.

Wilma4ever-Digicats-White Christmas & a FREEBIE


I love this time of the year-everything is so pure and white, clean looking and it all just sparkles so!! The beautiful colours, sights and sounds of Christmas will never be beaten. Dianna had created a most gorgeous full size kit that has the prettiest blues I have seen. Where to start first?  What to use first?  This is what I finally came up with. 


I love this photo of the sun setting at the North Pole.  Perfect for that little penguin!

Here is the preview and link for the freebie I promised.

Wilma4ever-Mystic Creations-Dark Hearts & a FREEBIE


Ok, Halloween lovers!  It's nearly time for the spooking evening and you want to be ready!  Here's a wonderful kit with a dark sounding name but actually is just adorable!  No big spooky items here. All the Halloween colours and a couple of sweet posers!  It also comes in tagger size for you taggers.  Be sure to click the link and head over to Mystic Creations to grab it now.  

My camp site where we spend our summers has a Halloween in August every year and I was fortunate to be able to use some of the photos-permission given. We unfortunately missed the event this year.  I love the imaginations that show up in some of the costumes!

Oops-I lost my head!

And as promised here is the preview and link for the Quick Page freebie.

Kathie Stevens Designs-Breast Cancer Surviving With Love & a Freebie


The magnitude of this kit leaves me in awe.  I am not even able to get close to showcasing all the beautiful elements and papers that are included here. This is the largest and best cancer kit I have seen in the digi world.  And Kathie has it on special for $1.25 until Oct 31st!  So I would say to you shake those legs and run for it now!!  The adorable little monkeys and mice will win your heart.  


This first layout is of my late Aunt Myla who chose to be a nurse for her career.

And this layout has some words of wisdom for us that are absolutely right on!  Purple and roses are my favourites and what could be prettier to brighten up someone's dull day.



We have put together a quick click for you to access which ever of the four stores you wish to purchase from-and in Full Size or Tagger Size formats.


And for the finale I have a Facebook set as a freebie for you.
