Some more 2 pagers from me.. and Stacey’s new kit..

>> September 30, 2009

Today i thought I'd share a couple of my recent layouts with you all. And one of them is a  layout i made using Stacey’s new kit. Every week , apart from working on CT layouts, i also work on my personal layouts as well. And sometimes I'll never have time to do even one. But sometimes… like the past week and a half, i get some quality scrapping time.

I stumbled upon  the ‘2 pager’ scrapping style very recently and what a blessing it has been,especially for all those events where i have a million pictures and i need at least a quarter of them to tell the story and our experience. My inspirations for 2 pagers are Yin of Yin’s Designs and Becky Higgins’s Sketches.

So let me show you what i have come up with….First is using Stacey’s new kit ‘C’ is for County Fair . As the name suggests i used it to scrap our july4th carnival using it. And the design is inspired from a LO from a magazine i read sometime back (plss forgive me….i don’t remember who or when )




And here is the kit i used. You can get it at her store. Also visit Stacey’s Blog for a coordinating FREEBIE.


And for my next layout, i used pics from my DH’s visit to the UK. And i used ‘Great Britain’ kit from Honey Designs. And guess what, this was a FREEBIE some time back. She has these amazing travelling collection under ‘1000 places to see before you Die’ series and  with all  extracted embellishments. Its really beautiful and worth it. And many of them are FREE.  (pssst…for all those twilight fans out there…. she has a collection on that too… and you won’t believe how superb that one is !! )

And for the background paper i used an actual map of UK (from Google maps !! ) and blended it into 2 textured papers. I’ll post the detailed credits in my galleries.




So that's all for now… I'll post some more layouts soon. Bubye.


Interesting Happenings from Stolen Moments and a new CT Blog!

>> September 25, 2009

Lots and Lots of activities from Amber of Stolen Moments Designs. Not only does she have a new product for the week, she also has a Blog Train..and…. the most exciting thing of all….a CT Blog !!!

But first things first.. Amber has released her new kit called ‘Helping Hands’. Its a fun and cute kit for all those pictures of your little one's  so-called ‘helping’ around the house. Or if you are like me, and are more worried about cleaning the later mess than running for the camera.. you can still find some adorable pictures of them playing around and use it to convey the ‘helping-with-cleaning-but -no-pictures’  story.


And here is the kit i was talking about. It is available at her stores right now. She also has a set ‘helping hands’  Pintables to go along with the kit , check that out too (below the kit preview). And they are all available at discounted prices for the next 2 days…so grab them both. And check out Amber’s Blog for more CT inspirations. Believe me..they are sooo cute !! And while your there, don’t forget to grab the FREEBIE !!

Amber and her CT members have also come with a new CT Blog. And her CT members are the authors of this blog.. and that includes ‘me’ too… so who knows, some day I'll host some posts there too… The name of this blog is stolenmomentsCT . You can find lots of opportunities for prizes, games, freebies, coupons from Amber's store here. Also if you join before Tuesday, you’ll  get a shot at winning $5 GC to Amber’s Scrap matters Store. Do you know how many amazing products she has there that are well under that mark ?!… So hurry now and start following us.

And to celebrate this venture, we also have a ‘Helping Hands Blog train’. Though I'm not participating in this train , the other CT members have come up with some beauties. And the train starts off at Amber’s Station… hop on and enjoy the ride….
