Created using the Ribbons and Papers Temp Vol 7-1, in the newly released September Templates by Connie Prince.  The templates are available on both GingerScraps and DigitalScrapbookingStudio.

The collection I chose for the template is called Sunset.  Rather fitting, eh?  It is also by Connie.  It is currently available on GingerScraps. Connie has not yet uploaded it to the DigitalScrapbookingStudio.  (Remember that this is a rather new store for Connie!)

Catching up on layouts!

I missed posting a couple layouts along the way.   I'd really like to share them with you now!!  I do love this first one.  This is the hibiscus I did in water color class!   Tropical Paradise was the perfect choice to scrap this one!!  I used the Ribbons Papers Temps Vol 6 -2 that released in the July Template Bundle from Connie Prince.
The font is Brush Script MT.

Another layout using another of July Template Bundle, In Pieces, Vol 16-3 and  the Happiness Is Bundle from Connie Prince.

I do have a few others I will share with you another day.

Happy Fourth of July!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Fourth of July.   It's been a rough few days for us with the doggies.  Fireworks and thunderstorms.   We lost power a few times, even blew a fuse.

I don't even want to talk about the heat.  It has been so hot!  Not fit for man nor beast outside.  I have been inside, air conditioning running.  And creating some layouts with older products from Connie Prince.  I'd like to share those with you today.

This layout was created using the Nature Walk PreDesignedPapers #3 from Connie. I had a lovely conversation with Basil the fox, so now I know what the fox says!!

This next layout was created using In The Woods from Connie.  I used Temps2 and did some experimentation with a border design.  I rather like the final look and am anxious to hear some comments on this.

Yes! The squirrel was yelling at me.  Those little red squirrels can be quite vocal.  

I would like to remind everyone that many animals are frightened of fireworks.  There are even people who have PTSD that are frightened of loud noises.  Especially those resembling gunfire.
So please...  keep your animals safe.

Legging Army Site wide Sale!!

I am super excited to be a Legging Army affiliate!!  If you have never worn Legging Army leggings, you are missing out on a super experience.  And at an affordable price!!

Legging Army leggings are so soft.  So comfortable.  Easy to care for.  The best thing is that they are available in "real" woman sizes.  I have stopped at legging stores and been so disappointed when their   largest leggings don't come close to fitting me.  There are leggings out there that I can wear, but the cost is rather prohibitive for me.  Legging Army will allow me to develop an assortment of leggings.

But wait! There is more.  Legging Army is having a site wide. The perfect time to check them out.  Did I mention there is no other added costs?  No shipping. No Sales Tax.  Just the cost of your leggings.  What more can you ask for?  Please come shop with me July 3rd.  

Please note that the times in the image above are Pacific Daylight Time.   That translates to 3:01 AM Eastern Daylight Time.  Sales ends at 2:59 AM July 5th Eastern Daylight Time.

July 2018 Collection

Released this week from Connie Prince, July 2018 Collection.  Available at both Gingerscraps and DigiChick.  Check out that hummingbird!!  It's just adorable.

I knew right away that I would use one of my hummingbird photos with this collection.

I also used the Blend Templates Vol 4-3 for this layout.  You have probably noticed that I often use blends of one type or another.  I love the look.

I am super excited to let you all know that I will be staying with Connie on her Creative Team.

New Connie Prince Release - June Template Bundle

The June Template Bundle is available now at both DigiChick and GingerScraps.  Be sure to grab this bundle while it is on sale!!

I actually created three layouts using the bundle  I'd love to share them all with you now.

 This one was created using the June Blend Temps, 4-3.  The kit is also from Connie Prince, Plant Seeds.

This one was created using the June Blend Temps 4-1. Did I tell you I just love the Blend Temps by Connie???  The kit I used for this one is the Hunny Bear Collection.

Fooled you!! If you were expecting more Blend Temps, you're wrong!!  I tried out the Whitespace Vol 29-2.  The kit I used is the June Daily Download from Connie called Moving Day.  Here is a Sneak Peak of Moving Day, which is available as a daily download at Ginger Scraps Blog. Just look for the Daily Download Blog Entry!

I will see you all soon!  Have a wonderful weekend.

June Buffet Collection - Rugged

The Gingerscraps June Buffet is open for business!  The Connie Prince Buffet Collection is called Rugged.   During this first week, you are able to purchase buffet items at a 50% discount!!

This is my layout using Rugged.    We don't camp or hike, preferring our nature to observing the beauty that is all around us.  Every year, we have at least one bird's nest in our yard.  One year, a storm nearly knocked a nest from the bush.  My husband took a handle and propped that nest right up.  The mom and birds all survived!   A favorite place for us is the duck pond at the Metroparks. This heron claims the area as his territory.

I started my layout off using the Template 4 from the template bundle.  Templates are a great starting place and it is perfectly okay to make alterations!!

Sharing my Guest CT Layouts

I am so very excited to be a Guest this month of June for Designs by Connie Prince.  It's actually been awhile since I did digital scrapping, and I had to re-learn some things along the way.

At any rate, I would like to share with you all my layout for the Hunny Bear Collection.  Everyone knows my love of all things Disney.   The Hunny Bear Collection was May's Sneak Peek kit and is now available at The Digichick and GingerScraps.

For my layout, I did begin with the Template 2 show below.  Very rarely do I stick entirely to a template as designed.  I love being able to show the versatility of templates to Connie's fans.

Looking forward to sharing my layouts with all of you this coming month!!
