Eledhwen Designs

Looking for a grungy kit with lots of elements that you can cluster and get super layouts??? Check out this kit - Warm Memories by Eledhwen Designs!

Springtime Limeade - Marshmella Designs

I made the mistake of passing by this kit the first time I saw it. Then I started looking more closely but I'm telling you, once I got ahold of it, I couldn't believe all the wonderful things in it! I went to a speed scrap and they gave out some different instructions like stitching, a grungy stamp, etc, and this kit had it ALL. And you wouldn't believe how many complments came about the included grungy stamp!! In the speed scrap I made this layout, and it sure does rank up there with one of my all-time favorite layouts. I have already used the alpha in several layouts (very versatile!) and I can't wait to make more with this kit!!!

Over the weekend I found a new site and lots of goodies! The scrapmatters design team has created a mega collab that's free for download during May called Life's Little Surprises. The thread to find the links is in the iNSD threads at

I made this beautiful layout with it and then found a new designer - Creations by Rachael. I bought her grab bag and have had a blast with her kits. Here are a few layouts with her products, also! The two kits I used of hers are called Wings & Wildflowers and Denim Days - you can probably figure out which is which :)

The scrapmatters site has been keeping me really busy with lots of challenges and it has been a wonderful creative release!!!

Waves - Everyone Needs Them!! Marshmella Designs

If I could wish one essential item on all my scrapbooking friends, it would be this.... the one-stop-shop for wave templates, 80WaveTemplates by Marshmella Designs.

I got my hands on these babies and made 7 layouts in a very short time. They added just the right touch, the right contrast, the right flow to my layouts and they make short work with very nice results! You'll see them in many of my layouts.

If you pull up the link to the product at the store, you can click on the buttont that says "view layouts" and see all the wonderful layouts that have been created so far with this awesome product!


In the mood for a bright and cheerful kit? I couldn't believe how much fun I had with this kit - popped out 3 layouts very easily! All those fun colors and great contrasts and so many neat elements and papers to work with! Who can resist??
