SALE TIME and layouts both digital and traditional!

I have a few layouts to share with you.

First is only the second digital layout I tried. It was so easy and I'm becoming very addicted to collecting digital kits. I do hope by doing some layouts digitally I can get caught up on my scrapbooking. I work in 12 x 12 format but don't have the capabilities to print in that size so I printed my layout and attached it to a 12 x 12 background paper...then I added the date by cutting the letters and numbers on my digital cutter. I saw the idea in Scrapbooks Ect Page Planner. I know I can't do this for every page but it was a solution for this page at least. I am looking into a website that prints 12 x 12 layouts for me.

Thanks to all who shared your talent and contributed to my fun layout! You guys are the best!
For some reason this photo isn't very clear so I provided the actual digital layout too.





















Next is a layout I did the traditional cut and paste way. It is a layout of all the people that visited my daughter when she was born. This is based on a Becky Higgins sketch. It was very easy to put together since all the photos were cropped to the same size. I just got some flocking and had to try it on this. With a fine tip glue pen I was able to flock many elements of the border. I also flocked Shirley Clark's hodge podge ribbon slides available at Paperthreads and Butterfly Designs classic corners file also available at paperthreads. I know it is hard to see the flocking in the photo...I did provide a larger photo of just the LHS....maybe that will be better. Trust me in real life it looks great! The ribbon is American Crafts and the paper is from a pack I bought at Wal-mart...Autumn Leaves perhaps?

Don't forget to check out my sale at my gallery in Cuttersmarket. You can stock up on many files 99cents or cheaper!

Thanks for reading and looking!

Shelly-

Great layouts! I wish I had time to scrap my photos, LOL. Thanks for the credit on the journal brushes - glad you could use them! And you might want to try Scrapbooks to Share to print your layouts. I've used them and their prices are pretty reasonable!

Shelly, I love your swinging layout! I'd have never guessed that was only your second digi layout. Thanks so much for pointing me to your awesome layout and for using my kit!
