Inspired by Papertreyink Embossing

I have revisited making greeting cards and have really enjoyed the stamps at a store I recently discovered.  Papertreyink has some lovely designs and on various Mondays they share techniques.  I watched a recent demo that used embossing and resist inking to decorate a card.  That inspired me to emboss a tree design (a stamp from Papertreyink) and watercolor the background.  Here is my finished card.

My thanks to the talented people at Papertreyink for sharing such fun ideas!

A Blocked template for those Multiple Photo layouts

Hi, I have a fun blocked template to share today that is straight forward but very versatile.  If you have a group of themed photos this one might be a good fit.  Here is my sketch.


I am fortunate enough to have a yard that allows me to have a nice flower garden.  I decided to put a few of my favorite pictures in a layout.  Here is my garden page.


I have also used this template for a themed page that didn't focus on photos.  I moved a few of the elements around and got the following look.


This layout was all about love and I filled by block with all kinds of hearts.  The one photo in the layout was placed with a heart mask.  There are all kinds of possibilities to explore.

If you would like the template you can download it from the link below.  The file contains PSD, TIF and PNG files.  Hope you enjoy it!

A Diamond Template to Share!

Hi, today I have a template to share that was inspired by a challenge I participated in at ScrapMatters.  We were asked to create a layout based on inspiration we got from an advertisement that contained several geometric shapes.  After looking at the ad and the flow of the shapes I decided to build a page with diamond shapes.  Here is my sketch.


I created a layout for the challenge using a beautiful kit by Stolen Moments and Forever Joy called Petticoat Rose.  Here is my page.


I love the pretty almost muted colors in this kit and how them blended together on the page.  If you would like the template you can download it from the link below.  The download file contains PSD, TIF and PNG files.  Hope you enjoy it!

Free Mini Kit - Summer Sherbet

I absolutely love the color palette for this month's color challenge at ScrapMatters.  It's gorgeous.  The colors are cool and icy and remind me of sherbet.  Um--yummy!  So here is my mini kit to share.



I did a layout with the mini kit.  This is my dear Maggie, a bit of a tired dog here since she never seems to stop playing until she is exhausted.
