Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone!  I do hope all of you who are passionate about preserving your memories can find some time to complete a layout or two.  Sometimes, though we get in a creative rut and need some inspiration to get our mojo back.  So....I am having a 50% off sale at Shelly's Art.   I do hope you can go to my store and find something that inspires you.  Click here or the preview below to get to my store.  Before you go though I have some treats for you so please continue reading.  

Rosalie isn't on my Creative Design Team (although I wish she were!) but she is nice enough to share with me some of her layouts.  She does such stunning work and has a knack for getting just the right placement and style of embellishments, papers, and photos.  This Halloween layout is no exception.  I just love the colors and the way she used part of  my Vampire Spider file.  The staples and buttons are the perfect finishing touch! 

If you'd like to create a splendid Halloween layout like Rosalie below to purchase the title file while it's 50% off.

Sandra is on my CDT and I'm glad she is!  Her layouts are always sooo charming.   I just love them!  Well now we are moving on to Christmas because Sandra did two fabulous Chirstmas layouts.  Check them out below.

Christmas Word Charms

Next up we have the second page of Sandra's Christmas layout.  This one is just as charming as the previous one don't you agree!  We are always shocked when Sandra doesn't include a charm in her projects!  She gets all her charms at A Charming Place.  She even roped me into buying a few charms myself.  Well she didn't have to pull my arm too hard..I love charms!  Now if she can just get me to remember to use them!

If you'd like to use any of the files Sandra used to complete her layout click on the words below to purchase them.

Christmas 2009 Title
Well that takes care of Halloween and Christmas.  If you need Easter inspiration see yesterday's blog post.  I do apologize if you are all caught up on scrapppin and don't need inspiration for other holidays then the current theme....I know...I'll give you three cheers for a job well done and send you on your way.  Oh wait before you go though tell me your secret.  I'm sooo very far behind on poor daughter will be 3 this month and I have only scrapped maybe a dozen pages in her book!

Okay enough gabbing on to the goodies! First up I have some blog candy to give away.

It's a hodge podge of goodies.  You get various pieces of patterened paper, letter stickers, rub-ons, velvet ribbon, dew drops, 7 color blocking page templates, small clips, die cut title, and a complete 12 x 12 page kit (which includes ribbon, fabric flower, chipboard, and instructions for assembly).  So does this look like something you'd like to win?  In order to win this you must catch the ball!

HUH!  I know you are not a dog...but I thought this would be a fun game to play.  Just humor me..okay!  LOL!    In order to win the blog candy you need to do the following:  (Note I can only ship to the USA...but if you are international and win the blog candy I will give you free files as a substitute and pick another USA winner)

1.  Go into my store.  Click here.  
2.  In one of my design images I have thrown this ball.  So you need to go find it.  E-mail me at with the name or number of the file you find the ball in.  This will give you one chance to win the blog candy.
3.  You can get one more chance to win by posting my blog candy on your blog with a link back to my blog.  Please send me proof that you have done this and I will put you down for another entry to win.  Facebook is a great place to put the blog candy too! 
4.  You can win one more entry by e-mailing me a newly created project using one of my designs..these can be cutter files, digital scrapbooking or digi stamps.  

To give you some time to create I will leave this contest open until Monday.  I will randomly draw the winner on Tuesday.  Goodluck!  But don't go yet...I have a freebie for you!  Blog candy closed..will be drawing a winner shortly!

Okay I know this has been an mega long blog post.   So thanks for hanging with me!  I will now get to the freebie.  In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I am giving you a layout that can be created using your digital paper cutter.   All you do is add the photos and base page.   Super simple!  I love doing layouts with my cutter because it makes creating duplicate pages easy.  I often do two pages of the same for my daughter and one for my son's book so this feature is really important to me.  You can find a few other layouts designed to be created with your cutter in my store here and here.

This freebie is not to be shared.  Please send them to my blog to download it themselves instead.  It still follows my Terms of Use included in the zip file.   The Zip contains AI, GSD, KNK, SVG, and WPC formats.  I will leave the freebie up until Sunday then it will go into my store.
Freebie expired look for it in my store soon. 

The example layout I created is of my son.  Hubby took him to get his hair cut right before my amazement he came back with a mohawk.  I was a little afraid of what all our relatives would think but my son was very tickled with his new hair cut...and I have to admit he does look pretty cute in it!  The title says "Hi Mohawk Head!" because that is what his sister says everytime she sees him!  Gotta love a 2 year old!

Okay I need to eat breakfast and get some of the challenges I'm hosting on the Paperthreads forum set up.  Thanks for visiting with me and I hope you have a fabulously creative weekend!
