An EZ Kit (or 2..)

Are you all scrapped out after iNSD? I hope not! 😉 Stop by at ScrapMatters for an iNSD after-party! There are some fun games planned!

Erica Zane has a new kit out and it’s goooorgeous!

Here’s my page with it (I did it for today’s Saturday Special challenge on blending):

And here’s another page I did with another kit of hers that I love:

I did this for yesterday’s Roadmap to Scrap challenge:

Have a great weekend!

Queen of Scrap 2010

Keep scrolling for the ScrapMatters iNSD blog train!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed (so many games and contests going on for iNSD!) but the Queen of Scrap competition has started at ScrapMatters! It’s seriously the craziest and funniest contest ever. And the best way to get many LOs done during the month of May.

I loved so much playing last year and earning a Princess crown, that even though I cannot run for the title since I’m on the CT, I still want to play along and post my pages with the contestants.
So if you haven’t signed up yet, check out the QOS section in the forum and come join us! 😉

And since the 40% sale is still on today and tomorrow, it’s the perfect time to stock up on some great kits to use this month. 😉

OK, now I have 2 more pages to show you done using Jennifer Barrette’s gorgeous iNSD grab bag (only available until tomorrow, then all the items will be unpacked and sold separately!).

ETA: Sale at ScrapMatters 40% extended until Thursday May 6!!

I hope everyone enjoyed this great iNSD weekend! I sure have, even though I wasn’t feeling 100% well so I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to. But still, I really enjoyed all the fun games, crazy sales and chats going on!
And there’s more good news:

This is seriously THE BEST DEAL all over digi-land!

Also, the grab bags are for sale until Thursday, so if you haven’t done so yet, I highly recommend you stock up on them fast, because they’re all packed with fabulous products and they’re such an amazing deal!
I played with 3 more grab bags this weekend, so I’m off to show you what I did.
First off, Jenn Barrette’s grab bag. I only used one kit for now, but more pages are coming for sure because this bag is packed with goodies! Check out the detailed previews in the store!

Then I also started playing with Sahlin Studio’s grab bag and once again I haven’t used all that’s in here!

Finally, Erica Zane + Denise Beatty Original’s grab bag is just stunning!! Check out the reveal in the previews in the store, but let me tell you: it has THREE (fabulous) alphas and for an alpha junkie like me this means total success! 😉 I made 3 pages so far:

I hope you’re all enjoying this iNSD weekend! I haven’t been feeling too well today, but I still spent some time browsing forums and galleries, playing games and shopping of course! 😉
I wanted to show you this adorable mini by Mari Koegelenberg because it’s 50% off right now:

I looooved using it to make this page:

Celebrate by Mari Koegelenberg Creations

iNSD Blog Train!

Happy iNSD everyone and welcome to the next stop in the ScrapMatters blog train! I hope you enjoy all the festivities we planned at ScrapMatters – make sure to check out the special iNSD section in the forum to make sure you don’t miss out on all the fun!

The iNSD mega-collab at SM this weekend is called Moments that Matter and the whole theme of our celebration is all about those moments in our lives that really matter. This kit is free if you spend $20 in the store and if you spend $30 you also get an amazing set of hybrid printables!

Before sharing my freebie, I wanted to share a little story with you. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time fitting in my scrapbooking hobby with my busy life; but scrapping my memories is so important to me that I’ll never give it up. Still, my husband complains ofter of all my computer time… 😉 Anyway, I made a hybrid mini album to celebrate our 10th dating anniversary last summer as a gift to my husband:

Gretchen, Date Stamped and Minnie Alpha by Britt-ish Designs

He liked it very much. But I didn’t realize how much he really liked it until a few months later, when we were talking about gifts and I asked him what was the best gift he got from me in all the time we’ve been together. And of all the gifts I gave him through the years (and there were expensive ones and ones he really wished for like his piano!) but he said his favorite of all was the 10 years mini album. So make sure you scrap the big and little moments of your life. It really matters!

And here’s the frame cluster I created for you with the Moments that Matter collab:

I hope you like it! 🙂 Make sure to leave me a comment if you download! Thanks for your interest, this freebie has now expired!

Now it’s time to keep riding the blog train! You should have arrived here from Tanya‘s blog and your next stop is Jenny‘s blog. If you’re lost, check out the ScrapMatters blog. Have a great iNSD!
