A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train

My apologies for this being posted a bit late this Saturday- it has been crazy around here with grades due and my son being in "A Christmas Carol" downtown. I seem to never been home, and when I am, I'm sleeping!

Here is my template for the ALFLT blog train. I just LOVE argyle patterns! There are two versions in one document- turn on and off the layers with the stitches to work with each of them.


Some inspiration:

December Blog Trains!

Pixel Scrapper December Blog Train: Home for the Holidays

Going home for the holidays (especially when I was in college) always meant baking cookies with my mom, so I am paying homage to those fun times with this mini- I "baked up" a few dozen cookies for you!
Download it from GOOGLE DRIVE.

Visit Pixel Scrapper and pick up the rest of the portions- be sure to leave lots of love for the designers who bring you this awesome train every month!

Scrap Designers December Blog Train: Holiday Songs

This, month, we each picked a favorite holiday song and created kits for them. I did a mini for the Dreidel Song, but there are elements and papers in there that you can use for just about anything!


Some inspiration:


I also have a Chanukah-related free kit on my Facebook Fan Freebie Page this month...


And, a little more inspiration, using the same template from above. If you like this template, check back here on Saturday, because that's when the "A Love for Layout Templates" train goes live, and this is the template I have for you this month!

November Blog Trains!

Wow, did the weather turn freezing fast here in Chicagoland! It seems we had one day of autumn, and now it is winter. I have two blog train freebies and a new freebie on my Facebook page for you this month.

The Pixel Scrapper November blog train, Elegant Autumn

Oh how I loved working with these colors! They are so nice and refreshing for this time of year.


My apologies in advance- the file is a bit on the large side; grades are due for first quarter this week, and I ran out of time to divide everything up! You can download my part from GOOGLE DRIVE.

Stop by Pixel Scrapper to grab the rest of the pieces, and leave some love for the designers!

Scrap Designers Blog Train, Attitude of Gratitude

We should ALL have an attitude of gratitude! I am grateful for so much in my life, it would make for one very long blog post here, but I'll start with my amazing husband and son for always being there for me! What are YOU grateful for?


You can pick up my part from GOOGLE DRIVE.

October Blog Trains!

I love everything about fall- the cooler air, the hoodie sweatshirts and jeans, and especially the colors! This month's blog trains both have those beautiful fall colors. Enjoy sipping on mulled cider, biting into a crisp apple, and pumpkin spiced...well, everything!

Pixel Scrapper October Blog Train- Pumpkin Spice

I may have gone a bit overboard on the papers with this one, but only because the colors for this train were just gorgeous!


There are so many goodies, I had to divide into three parts! You can download from Google Drive below- to do so, click on the ARROW pointing down in the upper bar of the Google Drive screen!


Don't forget to go to Pixel Scrapper and leave some love for the designers, and to download the rest of the train!

New Blog Train Freebies

I just love the fall months. The air turns slightly cooler but it isn't sweater weather yet, the possibilities of a new school year, and the colors of autumn all combine to make this a beautiful time of year.

This month, I have three blog trains for you, plus a new Facebook freebie!

Pixel Scrapper Blog Train: At the Zoo

Some designers chose specific animals, and some chose a general zoo theme. I landed somewhere in-between, and created a few papers and word art for the Reptile House. My son was always fascinated by the Reptile Houses at the Lincoln Park and Milwaukee Zoos, so it is kind-of a little tribute to his obsession from when he was younger.


You can download my part from Google Drive HERE.

Don't forget to go to Pixel Scrapper and pick up the rest of the pieces to this great train, and leave some love for the designers!

Scrap Designers Blog Train: Perfect Just the Way You Are

Everyone needs some self-affirmation once in awhile. This mini is the perfect way to scrap those times when you need reminding just how perfect and incredible you are.


A little inspiration, made with my FREE template below:


You can download my mini from Google Drive HERE.

Here are the rest of the blog train participants. We are all on different time zones, so if someone doesn't have their part up yet, please check back later.

A Love for Layout Templates Blog Train

Last but not least, I have a new template for you as part of the "A Love for Layout Templates" blog train. I, in no way, consider myself a "template" designer, so this is definitely a learning process for me. But I always love to learn new things, and heck, why not have people benefit from them?! 


I have one sample page shown above with my mini kit for the Scrap Designers blog train, and this is an example using my "Back 2 School" collection, available in my Etsy store HERE. 


You can download two different files, depending on your needs, from Google Drive:
PSD & TIF Files

I have a really neat new collection in the works- but it will be a little while until I can show it off. Having switched grade levels this year for teaching, I am taking a bit of time to focus on curriculum. But I'll be back next month with a few blog trains! 

Until then, happy scrapping!

New Collection and NEW Blog Train!

So, some sad news this month- my designer friend, Leigh Penrod, decided to retire last month. She and her talents will be missed, but I wish her the best for the future.

That being said, some of the designers from her blog train decided to continue in August. We are calling it the "Scrap Designers Blog Train," and I'm sure you will recognize a few of us!

The theme was "School Rules," and since I was going to work on a school collection anyways, the timing was perfect.

My new collection, "Back 2 School," is HUGE! It has, to start, 40 papers, 93 school elements, 93 generic elements, 12 journal cards, and 14 artsy elements. Then, since I made this kit to fulfill school scrapping needs from Preschool through High School, there also are Grade Level headers, Subject tags, and Extracurriculars tags.

The Back 2 School Collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. To celebrate school (as a teacher, I feel like we should ALWAYS celebrate school!), my entire store is 50% off until (my!) school starts August 21- just use the coupon code SCHOOL17 when checking out!



A closer look at the collection:














The collection coordinates with the August Scrap Designers Blog Train, School Rules. Here is a mini-kit that contains 10 papers and 21 elements.

You can download my part from Google Drive HERE.

The rest of the blog train:
Promethean Concepts <You are here!>

Make sure to check back next month- we are growing in numbers every week with designers who are looking to participate! And if YOU are a designer interested in joining us, you can message me via Facebook and I'll get you added to the group!

I also have a coordinated freebie on my Facebook Fan Freebie page!

You can get it here: Promethean Concepts

Again, the Back 2 School Collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. And don't forget my entire store is 30% off- just use the coupon code SCHOOL17 when checking out!

Happy scrapping!!

Pixel Scrapper August Blog Train

"Good Vibes" is a pretty broad statement, and many designers went in various directions, but I decided a little modern "flower power" was called for with this palette.

I put together a mini page kit for this month- enjoy!


You can download from Google Drive HERE.

Visit Pixel Scrapper for the rest of the train, and don't forget to leave some love for the designers!

Happy scrapping!

New Collection- Just Beachy and Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

I'm wrapping up my posts for this weekend with a new release, "Just Beachy," that coordinates with the July Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, Summer Lovin'.

I absolutely loved the colors this month, so I couldn't pass up the chance to create a beach collection that was sizzling hot. "Just Beachy" has 40 papers, 20 beachy elements, 27 generic elements, 3 journal cards, 6 artsy elements, and 10 flair elements, plus a glittery green alpha!

The Just Beachy collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. To celebrate summer, my entire store is 30% off- just use the coupon code SUMMER17 when checking out!

Leigh Penrod & Friends Blog Train

My second blog train today is Leigh Penrod & Friends. The theme was "July in the Park," so that left designers with a lot of wiggle room.

Here is a little inspiration using my free template from the "A Love for Layout Templates" blog train (see previous post!).
