Pixel Scrapper June Designer Commercial Use Challenge- Fasteners

I joined in for the Pixel Scrapper Designer Commercial Use Challenge this month- the theme this month was "Fasteners," so we had free reign as long as it is something that attaches things!

The paper clip and striped washi are layered .tif files; and the other three are .png files. Enjoy!

You can download from DROPBOX HERE.

Happy scrapping!

It's My Birthday, So Celebrate With Me!

Today started so promising, with the sun shining brightly, but has ended with a downpour. Not the most fabulous way to start a long weekend, but in Chicago, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!

My birthday is coming up next week, and I am celebrating with you by giving you a free kit. My son graduates from 8th grade on Friday, so I put together a graduation kit. It was a part of the Pixel Scrapper Designer Challenge this month, so it was the perfect opportunity to try a few new things. Even if you don't have a graduate, there are plenty of non-graduation papers and elements for you to play with!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

I have two blog trains arriving here on June 1, so check back here next week!

The iNSD Celebration Continues! New Collection & Freebie!

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend so far, and maybe even had time to find some good deals and freebies across the web for iNSD! 

I have a new release today, My Kind of Town. It is a tribute to my sweet home, Chicago! The colors coordinate with the May Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, which was all about travel destinations.

It has tons of Chicago-themed elements, cards, and papers, plus other versatile pieces. I just love the bright colors combined with the neutrals! 

The My Kind of Town Collection is available now in my Etsy Store! Use discount code "INSD2017" at checkout to take advantage of special 50% off savings through May 15!

Inspiration using My Kind of Town and my free template from the A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train:

I have a freebie for you that coordinates with My Kind of Town, and if you haven't grabbed my coordinating Pixel Scrapper freebie (with 10 additional papers and 20 Chicago-themed flairs!), you can find it HERE.

Grab my iNSD My Kind of Town freebie HERE!

Happy scrapping!

Happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day/Weekend!

The weather is nice, my son is at Great America for the day, and I am caught up on grading, so it is looking like the perfect day to celebrate (i)NSD- I'll be shopping some awesome sales, downloading some free goodies, and hopefully have a little time left over to create a few pages!

And of course, I'll have a few things here to help you celebrate, too! 

Today, I have a free template as part of the Love for Layout Templates Blog Train. This is one of my favorite blog trains- I don't always have a whole lot of time to design my own pages for scrapbooks, so I rely a lot on templates for those moments when I do. 

Some inspiration using my collection, Spring Awakening, available in my Etsy store.

You can download the files in either TIF or PSD (or both if you want!).

May Pixel Scrapper

I am so happy it is May. May is one of my favorite months of the year- the weather turns nice, the school year starts coming to an end, and we happen to have lots of birthdays. So, first up I have the Pixel Scrapper Blog Train.

The theme this month was destinations, and of course I did my home city of Chicago (even though I no longer live there, I still live in close proximity, and am in the city at least monthly if not every day for my son's shows!). My blog train submission is only a very small part of what ended up being a much bigger kit that will be available in my Etsy store next weekend.

Download from Google Drive HERE.

Don't forget to visit Pixel Scrapper to pick up the rest of the destinations!

My Store Is Now Open and a Freebie!

I am SO incredibly excited to announce that my Etsy store is now open! I wanted to open last week, but with the blog trains and spring break going on, I seemed to run out of time.

ANYhooo-- I created a special new collection just for this occasion. It is called "Spring Awakening." I hope you love it just as much as I loved creating it. It coordinated with the March Leigh Penrod and Friends blog train, because I adored working with that color palette. It is a MASSIVE collection, with 70 papers and over 200 elements, PLUS a bonus Alpha!

There is also a smaller mini kit available in my store, with 20 papers and 45 elements.

Both the collection and mini kit are ON SALE for 50% off through May 1st if you use the coupon code BEGRAND when purchasing!

My store link: PrometheanConcepts on Etsy

Of course, I also have a few freebies for you- one here on my blog and the other on my Facebook Page.

The Spring Awakening Collection:

And the bonus Alpha:

The Spring Awakening Mini Kit:

Some journal cards I made for a Pixel Scrapper blog train were such a huge hit that I made a FREEBIE set to coordinate with this collection, too! 

I created a cluster for you, too- just head over to my Facebook Page 
and click on "Fan Freebie" on the left side!

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be uploading my "L'Amour" collection and individual pieces to my Etsy store, so if you missed any of those downloads, they will be available for purchase there.

Happy scrapping! - Laurel

Leigh Penrod & Friends Blog Train

Here is the second blog train for April- for Leigh Penrod & Friends. This month, we decided on "Earth's Melody" and that it was left open to interpretation. I focused on the music aspect, as I have a singer in the house and so my life is always filled with beautiful music!

April Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

I'm back for another few blog trains this month- I have been been preparing for some other neat things, and my son's latest show is this weekend, so we've all been busy this spring break!

Pixel Scrapper's theme this month was Raindrops & Rainbows. I just love all the bright colors of this train. Make sure to stop by Pixel Scrapper to pick up all the pieces and leave some love for the designers!

March Pixel Scrapper Commercial Use Blog Train

Mother Nature seems to have forgotten it is mid-March here- we are getting a record 11 inches of snow right now! So, how about a few flower templates to celebrate the (eventual!) coming of spring?

Download from Google Drive HERE. (Click on the arrow in the upper right corner of the top bar!)

A tip in case you need it: Adjusting the brightness/contrast of the template will help you achieve the perfect color once you create your color overlay.

Go to Pixel Scrapper to download the other freebies, and leave some love for the designers!

Let's hope Spring shows its sunny face soon! Happy scrapping!

It's International Scrapbooking Day!

It's International Scrapbooking Day, and I was trying to think about how to best celebrate this with you (as for me, I am celebrating by creating some neat elements for a kit while relaxing on the couch!). Many readers were curious if they could get the first weeks of the L'amour Collection, so in celebration of InSD, I am REACTIVATING all of the L'amour Collection links here for a limited time.
