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:

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!

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.

My part:

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

A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train

Wow- I didn't even know where to start this month! I have so many things to share with you. My apologies in advance if you follow me on Google and will end up getting multiple emailed blog updates the next day or so... I promise they will all be worth reading, because I have free goodies in each!

I'll start with A Love For Layout Templates. This blog train happens every other month, and so many people have mentioned it is one they look forward to. We have 15 designers participating this time around, which is very exciting! I LOVE using templates, and this blog train is chock full of really neat ones you can put to good use right away!

My template:

I felt like this template needed to be seen "in action" to really get a feel for how it is used, so here is some inspiration!

This one uses my free kit, ConGRADulations, available HERE if you haven't downloaded it yet.

And this one uses my free mini-kit from the Leigh Penrod & Friends Blog Train (which will be my next post!)

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!

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!

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!).
