Raspberry Road Layout and Freebie

Hey! I'm back again! Wow, two days in a row! I had to do another one because today when I posted this layout, it was put in the Gallery Standouts thread at DST! Have to celebrate! Plus I'm moving in Dec (I hope......) so I may not have much time for a while again. Gosh I hope my life settles down once we are living with Dad and I don't have to go back and forth between houses so much!

Anyway this kit is made with the absolutely wonderful Kindred Spirit. I love this kit!!!! Image is linked to DST for credits and leavin' love!

And here is your cluster! Enjoy!

Raspberry Road Layout and Freebie

Hey Everyone! It's been so long and I was remiss in thanking you all for voting for the By Becca team in the Battle of the Creative Teams. I didn't get back here for the 4th layout as things got really busy that week with my Dad. We didn't come in the top three any of the weeks, but we must have been close because we came in 6th overall! So thank you all for trying!

Here's a really nice kit from Susan at Raspberry Road. Called Christmas Thyme, it has a wonderful color palette and cute little elements. Very sweet. Here's a picture of me when I got my Raggedy Ann doll. Life was so simple then! Click the layout to go to DST if you want to leave me some love!

And I made you a little cluster from my layout! Enjoy!

Contest Week 3 and a Cluster Freebie!

We have really rocked our monochromatic layouts this week with a fab kit that Becca put together for us - Champagne and Chocolate now available at 9th & Bloom. She took papers and elements from lots of her kits, recolored them to a common pallette and we talked her into offering it in her store! Sweet! (pun intended LOL)

Here's my layout, this is me! I love the song too..............

And a freebie for you. Same deal as last week, if we get in the top three, I'll come back with another on Monday for ya.....................just go to this link and go down about half way and

I have to say, this contest is really just about whoever you can talk into voting for your team, which is OK, but discouraging KWIM? Not what you know but who you know? So if you have appreciated all the freebies I have posted here - then please vote for us!!!! Thanks!

Hey everyone! Week Two of the DigiScrapAddicts Battle of the Creative Teams is now into the voting phase. By Becca's team of Creative Goddesses have really turned out for this one! Unfortunately, we didn't place in the top three last week - but there are still three more weeks to go. I hope you will take the time to go vote for us before you grab the freebie I have for you below.

Vote for By Becca's Team Here

This is my layout for the weekly challenge. We had to scraplift two team members and use Yesterday, Today or Tomorrow in the title. Our team chose yesterday and I used it in a little tongue in cheek way this time. Made with Taste of Provence. I LOVE this kit! The colors are just sooooooo rich and wonderful. You can pick it up in Becca's shop at 9th & Bloom here.

Raspberry Road Layout and Freebie

Hey Everyone! I have been absent quite a while! There has been a major change in my elderly Dad's life and I have been tending to his needs. It's calmed down a bit, but won't be changing much in the near future. I'm happy to have spent some time this week scrapping and finally got a layout done for Susan (thanks so much for your patience sweetie!) And of course, I made a freebie for all of you too!

The kit I used is Poppy Hill - what a beautiful kit in reds and teals and browns! Yummy colors and just right for fall!

My layout is of my Mom when she was a teen:
See credits and leave me love here

And here's some of it made into a cluster for you! Click the image to go to 4shared!

Layout Updates and Cluster Freebie

It's been a while since I've posted and I have a lot to show you, so let's get to it!!!! All of my images are linked to DST in case you have time to leave a little love!

I've made this month with my grand nephew Garrett as the focus. This first one was made with Elements, Papers and Add-on from Heaven Sent by Raspberry Road Designs. I received a Gallery Standout mention at DST for this one!

I used this perfect kit - Blessed by Sahlin Studio - for a Christening page.

Moving on to my CT with Verena Designs, this was made with her newest kit - Sophie's Day.

And then a Disney Layout about Remy in the France pavilion and in Chefs de France. This uses Bon Appetit by Britt-ish Designs and SuzyQ Scraps

Two of my CT desigers did a collab - by Becca and Designs by Helly. A beautiful kit called Ephemeral Soul. You can get the kit at Scrap Matters or Scrapbook-Bytes. Becca also has matching Word Bits in her store. The first layout is my granddaughter at age 8.

The second one is my sister and brother when they were 3 and 4 years old.

And last night I created this layout from Oh So Shabby by Raspberry Road Designs. This is my Mom when she was 8.

And lucky you! I created a frame cluster from this last layout! I made the photo layer separate, so you can clip your photo to it and adjust to crop. Click the image to go to 4shared!

New Layouts and Cluster Freebie!

Hey Everyone! I have a bunch of new layouts to show you (all images are linked for credits and comments) and I'm now CT'ing for Designs by Helly too, so let's start with hers! This layout is made with her new mini kit The Light of Morning Papers and Elements, available at Scrapbook-Bytes. It is part of a co-ordinated site offering, so go check it all out and see what kind of a full kit you can build!

Next up is a layout featuring my beautiful mom made with a kit from By Becca. She just opened up her grab bag at Scrap Matters and this kit was in it! Grab Wistful in her shop!

Here is one from a beautiful kit released by Verena Designs also at Scrapbook-Bytes. This is one of my Mom and her Mom - how lovely is this kit for heritage pages! You can get Peach-Faced Lovebird in her shop!

And finally, here is a layout for Susan of Raspberry Road Designs. Doesn't she just rock these emphemeral type kits? Look at the rich colors of those papers! Yummy! This kit is Vineyard and as usual, she has a mini freebie in the shop.

OK one more thing before the cluster freebie - you know the DST Scrapper's Choice Awards? Well I have a few layouts in some categories, but a couple that I really really love and I'm hoping if you like them too (oh and to bribe me to make more cluster freebies for you LOL) if you are on the site, maybe you will put a vote in for me? Click on the image to go to the voting pages!

In the Heritage Category - I love this, I got lots of wonderful comments on this layout when I posted it. I think it is the most commented layout I have. My Mom again. If you have time and can only do one, please do this one. And you can vote every day until the end of May!

And the Two Page Layout -isn't my grandson cute????

And for Use of the Gold Member Kit - I won for this month of entry.

And inanimate subject - nothing fancy about this LOL but I love my car and my license plate! hahahah - it's Bibbidi (as in Bobbidi Boo!).

Ok, you have been so patient - here is your cluster freebie! Thanks so much for visiting my blog - one of the Raspberry Road Cluster Freebies I offered has over 5,000 downloads!!!! Wow! If just 1% of you have bought something from Susan because of my clusters, then - wow - well hopefully I'm helping her out here and if you go there, you will see the terrific bargain she offers on every single kit. She is really a-mazin'!!!!

By Becca & iNSD Freebie Cluster

Have you heard about By Becca? I'm on her CT, she's a pretty new designer and her store is over at Scrap Matters. I think she's awesome! She is just turning out some really beautiful kits plus she is just a super nice lady! So she is having a sale right now, go to her store and check it out!She released this kit last week - Silver Bells and Cockleshells and a Word Art/Borders Pack to go with.
And I made this layout with it (linked for credits and comments). Isn't her kit lovely? And wasn't I a cute three year old? LOL
And this weekend she has released a grab bag. You can see it on her blog here and in her store here! It's only $4 and it has a lot of neat stuff in it (plus a template by me! heh heh)

So I asked her if I could offer a freebie cluster for you on my blog and she said yes! So here it is! I made two .png files for this one, so you can clip your photo to the lavender piece and tuck it right behind the cluster. If you visit Becca's blog, you might say thanks to her for letting me do this. And oh ya, if you like her stuff and want more, you might let her know that too!

Oh and thanks for all of your comments about clusters vs QPs last time. I kinda thought that clusters were more popular, but you really convinced me, so I'll keep making them. And it was so nice to "meet" you all. I thought it didn't matter to me to much about so few people leaving comments on my other clusters, but after reading all of them on this one, the world felt a little smaller and a lot warmer to me! So I thank you for taking the time to chat!

Hugs, Nancy

Wedded Bliss and Cluster Freebie

Hey Everyone

Susan has released a couple of new kits since I last posted. I just created a layout with Wedded Bliss, using a picture of my Mom. This kit is so FULL of elements, I had a hard time choosing! Boy she really knows how to pack up a kit and soooooo reasonably priced too! The other new kit is April Showers and it looks darling! Don't forget Susan always has an add-on freebie waiting for you in the shop.

Here's my layout! Click on it for credits/comments:

I also made this layout today, using a kit released at DST - only available to Gold Members. I made this for the monthly contest, first time I've entered it, although I've been a member for a year! Maybe I'll win the big $25 GC to the designer shop! Cross your fingers!

I'm really proud of this one because I customized that shadow on the brown paper so it would look like it was warped over the leaves and sticks behind it!

Then I did this one too (in a brown mood LOL) about the day Jet Blue started direct flights to Orlando - they had a party for us! And I won the 10 questions trivia game on board! Only person to get all 10 correct!

I made part of my Wedded Bliss layout into a little cluster for you. You can pick it up here. Also, if you leave a note, can you let me know if you prefer clusters or quick pages? I prefer clusters myself, but just curious about all of you.

Here's a layout I created with it: "True Colors". These are my grandkids having fun at their Nana's house. Every year she did an egg hunt for them! Layout is linked to credits and comments.

Thank you to everyone who has been leaving such kind and encouraging comments for me here and on 4shared. I really appreciate it. Here is a little frame cluster for you from my layout. Enjoy!

Blooming Springtime - Verena Designs

Hey Everyone!

Wow, I'm really looking forward to this weekend, it is going to get up into the high 60's/low 70's here! I really hate winter in Maine, but boy it sure does make lovely spring days all the sweeter.

I haven't posted about Verena Designs' CT, I think. I've been doing some pages for her for a few months. I really love her kits, the elements are wonderful, lots of flowers and leaves and ribbons, just what I love. So I finished up these two pages tonight. My grandchildren with their rabbit, Tux. Hmmm I think I'll ask Verena if I can do some clusters to give away - what do you think?

Anyway, you can get this kit at Digital Scrapbook Art, Scrapbook Bytes and GoDigitalScrapbooking
