Abby by Scraps N' Pieces, a Freebie, and $2 Tuesday

Scraps N' Pieces has a wonderful new kit out today called Abby.  This is the kit they have used to redesign the look of their logo, blog, and packaging.  I absolutely love the color combination!  It's on sale starting for just $2.50 for the next week.  You can get the matching cardstocks for just $1 when buying the kit using this code: SNPabbyCS   You can also get a matching set of quick pages for $2.50 this next week as well.  Here's a look at the kit and the layouts I created with it.

This first layout is of my son at just a few weeks old and just out of the NICU.

This girly kit works great for boys too!  My son Rylan was born almost 6 weeks early and was on oxygen for 3 mo. just in case anyone was wondering about the tubing.  He's doing great now at 18 mo!

Here's your freebie.  I did a template for you of my first layout.  There is a psd file and png files in the download.  Enjoy!  Make sure you check the Scraps N' Pieces blog for more freebies from the rest of the creative team.

It's also $2 Tuesday today!

Here's a look at what Scraps N' Pieces has in the sale today.

Thanks by Flower Scraps

I was able to use Flower Scraps new kit Thanks this week to create a couple layouts.  This is a great non-traditional Thanksgiving kit.  It has bright colors and a retro feel to it.  It can work well for lots of other events other than Thanksgiving too with it's color palette!  Here's a look at the kit.

The first layout I have to show you is of my oldest son's first meal of solid food which was on Thanksgiving!  I'll never forget when he had his first cereal!

I took a different route with this kit for the second go 'round with a non-tradional halloween layout featuring my kids' push in face pumpkins.

Xtreme Sports by Scraps N' Pieces and a Freebie

Scraps N' Pieces has a new kit out today called Xtreme Sports.  Some of you probably remember it from the Designer contest Lori did a couple of months ago.  She and Heidi decided to expand the kit into a full sized kit and put it in the store.  There are additional papers and elements for more of those adventurous sports that are out there.  It's on sale for $2.50 this week.  You have to check it out.  I love the bright colors!

And here's your freebie for today- a paper stacker.  Let me know what you think about having other freebies besides just quick pages.

Lots of Layouts!

I thought I would just take a moment to share a few layouts that I've done over the past few weeks.  These layouts were all inspired by challenges at Stuff to Scrap.  Many of them were done over the iNDSD weekend.  Below each layout is a link to the credits in my STS gallery.

This first layout was done for the ad challenge iNDSD weekend.  The layout of the inspirational ad worked perfectly for our morning at Apple Fest.

 This one was done for a challenge on Christin's Creations Facebook page.

I made this one for the use it or lose it challenge iNDSD weekend.

 This layout was done as part of the iNDSD progressive scraplift

This is my latest speed scrap page.  It ended up being a great title page for my family's trip to Michigan this summer.

This layout is from another speed scrap.  I just love speed scraps!

Yet another speed scrap layout!  My Dad and Rylan really took a liking to each other during our stay in Michigan.

And another speed scrap layout lol! 

This layout was done for the photography challenge iNDSD weekend.  The challenge was to take a picture we wouldn't normally scrap and transform it into something wonderful.  I love my photo now!

Oh man, this is another speed scrap layout.  I'm addicted.

This layout was done for the October color challenge.  The picture was taken from my back patio.

This is another speed scrap layout.  My son loved these orange fangs he got while trick or treating.

I have layouts of both of my boys loving up on Lucy the dog from the pumpkin patch now.

AmyDane Designs had a freebie kit out a while back that worked perfectly for these picture of my son pouting.  He really didn't want his picture taken!

This layout was done for one of the My Life challenges.  I love pictures of kids reading!

The walker in this picture is the best toy ever for kids that can't quite walk on their own.  The boys were very interactive with this toy too.  They would chase each other around the table portion.

This is another my life challenge layout.  The challenge was to find generational photos for comparison.  This on is of me (in the center) and my two boys.  Scary huh!

I made this layout for one of the word of the week challenges.  The word was explore.

I did another generational layout with my two boys and my husband's baby pictures. (top left)

This layout was for the October template challenge.  We had a great time at the children's museum in Salt Lake.

I made this layout into a quick page for the quick page exhange last month.  There were so many great pages we all got in exhchange!

I love the kit Cherish by Scraps N' Pieces and it worked great for a monochromatic challenge.

The view from our back patio is just stunning in the fall!
If you got to the end of this post and you're not my mom, I'm impressed!  :)
