Down By The Lily Pad by Scrappin' Serenity & a Freebie!

Down By The Lily Pad is a great outdoor kit featuring pond life and the soothing colors of nature.  You'll love all the different frogs and other water friendly animals in this kit!  You'll have to hurry to catch this kit though.  It retires at the end of the month.  Because it's in the retiring soon bin for a couple more days, you can grab this fabulous kit for just a $1.  With that savings, you'll be able to grab the matching worn paper pack with is just $0.80!  Check it out.  Previews are linked to the store.

I created this first layout documenting the flooding at my In-laws last summer for the August Color challenge.

This second layout was created for the August Scraplift Challenge.  The worn paper pack lends itself well to blending!  I always wonder how people create certain effects on their layouts so here you go: I created circles of the beige paper the same size as my photos as a base to blend them on.  Then I used the soft light blend mode on my photos and duplicated them 3 times to create the saturated blend.

Check out the STS inspiration section of the blog to grab this free cluster!

Pass, Set, Kill by Scraps N' Pieces and a Freebie!

Scraps N' Pieces has a brand new sports kit out today.  If you love Volleyball or have a child who does, Pass, Set, Kill is for you!  Even if your school colors don't include those featured in the kit, there are plenty of neutral papers to work with.  And if you love the colors, but volleyball isn't really your thing, check out more inspiration on Scraps N' Pieces blog from some of the other CT members. 

Here's a preview of the full kit.  Kit and worn papers are bundled together at the My Memories store and the Scraps N Pieces store where it is on sale for $3.50 for the bundle for three days.  If you would rather purchase the kit and worn papers separately, or just the kit alone, you can get them that way at Stuff to Scrap.  If you check the STS forum in the What’s New in the Store section, you just might find a coupon for that.  Image is linked to the Scraps N Pieces store, where you just might find a couple new designers this week too.


Just the papers (worn papers are in this kit but not pictured in the preview)


Worn paper pack available bundled with the above kit at My Memories and Scraps N Pieces or separately at Stuff to Scrap


I did a layout featuring my husband's cousin Katie playing volleyball.  The boys love going up to the high school to see her play.

Here's your freebie!  I made the page above into a quick page for you.  It has 5 photo holes and will work perfectly with any school colors!

Make a Splash by Scraps N' Pieces

What’s better in the hot summertime than cool clear water!  Scraps N' Pieces brand new Make A Splash kit was designed with swim team, water polo, and diving in mind, but it's GREAT for all of your Summer water adventures.  Scraps N' Pieces new store  is now open YAY so you will be getting a couple of different options when their kits release.   In the past, they have always sold the kit and cardstocks separately and will continue to do so at their Stuff to Scrap store.  In the new Scraps N Pieces store and at My Memories, the kits will be packaged with those additional papers already in them so they will appear more expensive.  It all ends up being the same though if you want the whole thing.  If not, you can just get the kit and cardstocks separately at Stuff to Scrap.  Here is a look at this fun new kit.  Previews are linked to the Scraps N' Pieces personal store and the full kit including the extra paper pack is on sale for $3.50 for the next three days.  You can also pick up the same kit at My Memories HERE or at Stuff to Scrap HERE.


Here's a look at just the papers.


Plus there are an additional six (6) cardstocks packaged with the kit at Scraps N Pieces and My Memories (not pictured in preview above) or packaged separately at Stuff to Scrap.


Now for some inspiration...  I did a spread of our new in ground sprinkler system we put in this summer and also made my agust desktop with this kit.  Make sure you stop be Scraps N' Pieces blog for more great inspiration with this kit.  The layouts are fabulous!
