Template #29

Hey, what do you know?  I'm back already!  Actually, I finished this template last week, but didn't ever get around to posting it until now.

I downloaded this free kit a couple weeks ago from Valorie Brown Designs (can't remember where I downloaded it from),  and thought it was so cute. I especially like the stickers of all the sweets (I'm a total sugar addict!).  I've been wanting to use this kit ever since then, but couldn't find the right picture.  So, I decided to use one of myself, as a baby, since I'm such a sugar freek (and I'm so sweet too! ha ha).

So, here is my latest template...

And here is my SWEET layout:

Awww, wasn't I sweet?

Template #28

Hey, can you believe it? A new template already! Wow, I guess miracles can happen.

Actually I was motivated by this great new kit I bought at Scrapartist. It was a collaboration kit they were selling for the month of February. I really liked the doodly look of this kit. It looked like fun to play around with. Plus, they were selling it for a good price on the last day of February, so I had to jump on it! So you may see a few of my next few layouts done with this kit.

I kept the template pretty simple, but, of course, I couldn't keep my layout simple. I've been really into adding tons of details lately to my layouts. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. It's definately time consuming though.

So, on to the important stuff...

Here's my newest template:

As always, enjoy!

Monthly Layout Template

Yes, I know. You don't need to remind me. I've been a bad girl. I'm sorry! 

I've actually had this template done for awhile, so I don't know why I haven't posted it until now. I have no good excuse. Just being lazy I guess. Sorry again...

Ok, so here's the deal with this template.  It's really fun to play with. I have to admit that I got the idea from Heather Ann Designs. I wanted to do something for all of you that are trying to work on your Project 365. But I know a lot of you are like me and are just too busy (and lazy) to make that big of a commitment. So this template is an easier solution for you to still be able to document your year, but not have to take pictures every day. This template allows you to document each month however you want!

Here is the sample that I did to give you an idea of how you can use this template:

So, if you're up for a challenge, here is the link for this template:

And, as always, please send me some of your finished layouts. 
I love to see my templates at work!

Have fun!

2008 in Review Template

Happy New Year!

I knew I wouldn't get back here before Christmas, but I really wanted to get this template done before the new year started. Looks like I made it in the nick of time! I love doing these "year in review" layouts, so I thought I would make a template to make it easier. Of course I can never do anything quickly when it comes to scrapbooking, so the actual layout took me a long time to do. You can see that by all the little details I had to add to my sample layout. I sure have a lot of scrapbooking files! Anyway, you don't have to be quite as detailed as I was when you do your layout.

So here's my last template of the year!

2008 In Review Template

And here's my layout...

(see what I mean?)

As 2008 draws to a close, I just want to thank all of you that have visited my site this year. It's been so much fun to make all of these templates, and I love to read all of your kind words. I hope in 2009 to find more time to make even more templates for you to enjoy. I hope all of you have been as blessed as I have this past year!

Here's the link to the template

Enjoy it and I'll see you all next year!

Christmas Card Template

Hello! Hello! I'm still here!

Sorry I've been away for so long! My life has been crazy busy! And of course it will only get worse now that the holidays are rapidly approaching. I really wish I had more time to devote to this site because I really enjoy it and love to hear from all of you.

I know I'm not the only one who is running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Or should I say "turkey" since Thanksgiving is next week. Sorry, it's gross either way. I'm sure most of you are busy beavers too. (What's with all the animal references?)


I thought I would help you get a head start on your Christmas cards by providing this cool template. I really had fun playing with this when I was done with the template. It's a great way to share a bunch of photos with your family and friends and wish them a happy holiday season. I made the template a 5"x7" size, but feel free to resize it. You may want to make it a 4"x6" size to save money on envelopes and stamps. You can also use the card as part of a Christmas layout if you want. Be creative!

Here it is...

And here is my Christmas card...

You can download the card template here.

Ok, now I really want to see some of your cards, so please send me some of your finished work!

And if I don't get back here before Christmas...(but I'll really try)

I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed holiday season!

Merry Christmas!

2009 Desktop Calendar Templates

So I thought I'd do something a little different this time. I've noticed that a lot of sites are coming out with their 2009 calendars and templates, so I've decided to share mine with you! These make great gifts, but be sure to make one for yourself too!

These templates are 5"x7" in size. I like this size better than the popular CD calendar size that you see everywhere. Mainly because they are bigger! I put my finished calendar pages in a plasic frame like the one below. You can find them at any office supply store, or at places like Target or Walmart. They are only about $4.00 each.

To use these templates, simply choose your favorite photo, digital papers, and elements, and place them into the appropriate layers. Voila! Instant desktop calendar in no time! I make these every year for not only myself, but for my dad and my father-in-law, whose birthdays fall just before Christmas. They are always a big hit.

Here are a few samples of how you can use these calendar templates. You can keep it as simple as you want, or add more papers and elements to your liking.

This one is very basic, but classy. Maybe better for a man,

or someone who likes a modern touch.

I've added just a couple of things to this one, a digital paper

and a photo overlay. Still pretty simple.

This one I added a few extra elements in addition to the digital papers.

So, just have fun with these and get as creative as you want with them. Also, I'd really love to see some of your finished results. Please send me some samples! I haven't made my calendar yet, so maybe you guys can inspire me!

Here is the link to the calendar templates.

Have fun with these!

Template #27

I'm back!!! Hooray!! Sorry I was gone for so long, but ever since we got back from our vacation, my life has been extremely hectic! I'm hoping I can still find time to make these templates because I really enjoy it.

I did find some time yesterday to sit down and get one done! Yea! I was looking at an old copy of Digital Scrapbooking magazine, and basically made a template from the June/July 2007 cover.

So, here it is:

Template #27

And here is my layout using this template:

And, of course, here is the link to download this template.

Have fun with it, and I'll try my best to not be gone so long!
