Pop Culture

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Susan released this great boy kit last week called Pop Culture. I have had such a hard time finding a kit I liked to scrap the pictures from a recent concert Nicholas attended. It was so easy to scrap this picture after I opened this kit. Here is a layout I did:

You can get this great boy kit in the shop. Enjoy!

Wynter Blessings QP

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Happy Friday Everyone!

I have been having an amazing scrappy mojo this week. For some reason I have been cranking out the pages and I LOVE when that happens- don’t you? Well just in case it hasn’t been that kind of week for you I come bearing gifts- A QP using Raspberry Road’s Wynter Blessings kit.

i love this kit! I originally picked it up to work with the lovely house paper in there, since it reminded me of the row homes in Baltimore/DC, but Ive found that I can use it for lots of other pages. Not just winter ones either!

So for those of you looking for a nice, inexpensive way to scrap some holiday gatherings in non traditional colors, check this out!

I also used one of Susan’s newest embellishment packs- Antiques 4. I took the headboard and altered it to make the gingerbread trim along the journaling block. Don’t keep these packs hidden in those kitchen los. Mess with them, alter em’, ENJOY them!

It’s Game Night at Raspberry Road

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Susan’s new kit, Game Night, was released last week. It is full of elements that remind me of my grandparents house when I used to play cards with them as a child. I’ll have to find some of those pictures so I can scrap them. The quickpage I made for you is for all those darts enthusiasts. My husband and I used play in a dart league and we loved it. Family and work has since taken over and we are no longer able to play. We do keep a dartboard on the wall at home though! Here is a quickpage for you and can find the complete kit in the shoppe. The picture is linked to the download. I have uploaded this to my account since 4Shared is having problems.


Just The Way You Are ~ featuring Cottage Charm

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Just wanted to pop in and share another layout using the Cottage Charm collection.  I usually fall in love with the elements in Susan’s kits first and the papers second, but let me tell you, the papers in Cottage Charm won my heart right away.  They are just gorgeous.  I couldn’t decide on what papers to use, so I ended up blending two papers together to create the background paper you see on my layout.  This collection is shabby chic yumminess!

Have you been enjoying all the freebies from Cottage Charm? I hope so. It is a fun kit to work with and I have had fun using it. You will want to check out the Gallery for some fun layouts.

I wanted to show you the brag book I made. It is a 4×6 book and available in the store for only $4.99. It has 11 photo pages and 1 cover page. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I had fun creating it.

Made For Each Other ~ Featuring the Blissful Fantasy Collection

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Today I’m sharing with you another wedding layout for my brother and new sis-in-law’s photo book.  The newest Raspberry Road Collection, Blissful Fantasy, is a gorgeous wedding collection.  There are so many papers and elements, though, that aren’t specifically for weddings and will make this a versatile kit to add to your collection.

As Carolyn mentioned, Smitten was released recently. I have not had the chance to really play with this kit but I love it. The kit screams Valentine’s Day to me and I am planning on making some hybrid cards for my kids this year. Hopefully I’ll have a preview for you next week. Until then, here is a quick page I made for you. I hope you like it.


Remember ~ Featuring Paris Nights

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

On Sunday, Carolyn posted a gorgeous layout using Susan’s new collection, Paris Nights ~ and I’m not far behind her!  Here I used the collection for another page for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding album, documenting some of the details of her dress.

The Only Way ~ featuring Vintage Pixies Collection & Add On

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I’ve been a fan of Susan’s collections since she first started designing, but in the past few months she has really impressed me with some of the new kits she’s created.  With every new release, I proudly announce, “That’s my favorite!” only to find that in a few days, she’s surpassed herself and I’m claiming a new favorite.  I’m just so blessed to be able to create for her!  I’m sharing with you today a layout I made with one of her newest collections, Vintage Pixies.

My significantly younger brother got married two days after Christmas, and they asked me to take their pictures for them.  I am making a photo book of layouts using all those photos I snapped as part of their wedding present.  This is a good friend of my new sister-in-law.  She was so sweet at the wedding ~ she cried at the drop of hat (like me) and so I felt an immediate connection with her.

Take some time and drop by the Shoppe and make sure you take a look at all the new collections that are coming out.  Remember we also have fun challenges in the forum as well, and we would love for you to join us.
