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.

Raspberry Road Layout and Freebie

Hey Everyone! I'm back with Susan's new kit - Baskets and Bunnies! You can find all the essentials in her store! It's really cute and chock full of great stuff for your Easter and spring layouts.

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
