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.

I prefer clusters. Quick pages don't require any creativity (on my part), and being creative is why I scrap!

A beautiful cluster, thank you! :) I like both, but I prefer clusters:)

But in a perfect world, a cluster would come with one paper;)

I prefer clusters. They are versatile in the sense that we can use them on paper of our choice and they add to what we can do ourselves... Thank you for sharing!

Hi there! Thanks so much for the lovely bit of pretty. As for your question...I dont do quickpages at all. Ever. They're just too predictible and dont work for me. HOWEVER, my new fave thing to do is scene layouts, so what I reaaaaallly love is clusters or scene pages without any frames...so basically, you could easily stick a frame on them, but without a frame they can also be used for all sorts of altered art/scene type stuff! The one today is a perfect example. With the frame...very cute! If there was no frame (which there won't be when I'm done with it! LOL) I'd be much more able to use it often and well. Hope that helps!

I too do prefer clusters. They leave more room to our creativity.

This is a beautiful cluster! Thank you so much! I prefer these to the QPs (but when the QPs are beautiful, stunning, funny, etc, I have to snag 'em, too! LOL). The clusters allow me the freedom to create my own pages. Your generousity is very much appreciated!

thanks for sharing your talent. I like clusters better, because I can put them anywhere on the page, and "work around them" with the rest......

I have just found your pages. They are lovely. I like both quick pages and clusters. What I like most is when the cluster is an extra layer in the quick page and you can make additional pages like a brag book. Thank you so much for sharing. Hugs Angel

Thank you for this beautiful cluster

Thank you for all your beautiful clusters! Yes, I too prefer clusters to quick pages. Quick pages are more limiting. I've seen some layered quick pages that are super cool.
