LDS Blog Train - The Greatest Gift

Welcome, LDS train riders! Happy holidays. I hope you and your family is safe and happy this season. We've had a lot of illness around here. 'Tis the season, I suppose! :) Well, it's also the season for celebrating our Savior's birth, which means trying to serve and love our fellow man a little more. So, I hope that this little blog train kit will help remind you of Jesus and all that He's done for us. God bless you, dear friends and Merry Christmas!

Click on the individual preview below to download my portion and then click on the next designer's name beneath that to continue on your way. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Printable Holiday Gifts

Whew! I've been working my tushie off to finish making some 2011 calendars for the grandparents this year. I wanted to make something really special that my parents can't buy for themselves. I spent so much time and liked the finished project so much that I decided to sell the set to my customers and hopefully save them some time and money this Christmas! I also made a set of holiday cards that turned out pretty cute - if I do say so myself. ;) All you have to do to print these beautiful projects is drop in your photo, add any journaling touches and print! I made everything the right size to print from a home printer if you want, or get them professionally printed for that extra polished look. I also need to tell you that I just discovered a fabulous website for printing digital scrapbooking layouts! Their quality is unsurpassed and their prices are excellent. They are even running a special right now for the holidays. If you order by December 15, you can get 10% off with a special coupon code: holidaycard. Click on the ad below to go to their website and check out their terrific selection and prices. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season. And happy Digital Scrapbooking Day!

Two New Kits and a Fab Weekly Download

I have an alpha and two new kits out this week as well as a fun weekly download for you to check out this month at Inspiration Lane. My first kit is a mini for Halloween called Boo!. It's just the right price at this expensive time of year! The best part is, if you like those little trick-or-treaters, you can get a coordinating little guy in the weekly download at Inspiration Lane along with some other terrific goodies from the other designers at IL. Check it out by clicking on the preview below. I have also created a little tag freebie for you that goes along with this kit.

My new alpha is an embossed acrylic alpha that will go with just about any layout. I even created a layout with it that you can see down below. If you like this alpha, it also comes in the Seasons Collection which is my other kit released this week. :) There is the Seasons kit, the Thanksgiving Add-On and the coordinating grungy paper pack. Take a look at the previews. I hope you are all having a wonderful fall season and that you're holidays are full of sweetness! ;)

Site For Great Free Fonts

I have been exploring a super fun website today. It is called Kevin and Amanda. It's always been one of my favorite sites, but I can't believe how much it's grown. They have recipes, giveaways, and other fun stuff, but my favorite section is the scrapping fonts! They're free for personal use and would look great in any layout.

If you haven't visited Kevin and Amanda before, check them out. You'll also notice they're a favorite to use in my designing for word art and alphas. ;)

Hope you're all having a terrific day. New kit coming tomorrow!

I am currently seeking several talented layout artists to join my team. There are two ways to be on the team. There is the CORE team which gets a lot of perks and has monthly requirements, and there is the On-CALL team which has no monthly requirements. The On-CALL team works with kits of their choosing when they have time and photos to match the designs.

Requirements for the CORE team are:

Create 1-2 layouts with each new kit
Create 1 QP per month
Participate in one chat or challenge per month

Right now I sell my designs at Inspiration Lane, Divine Digital, and 3 Scrapateers (links to the right). You may visit my stores there to see if you'd be interested in working with my designs.

If interested email me a link to your best online gallery and list any other teams you’re currently on. Also let me know which team you're applying for. You must be willing to dedicate yourself to this team. We are a close-knit group and we have a lot of fun, but we also work hard. If you'd like to be on the CORE team, you should be willing to commit to being on the team at least 6 months. Call ends April 25th. Good luck!

CT Spotlight and Sneak Peek

This week I am spotlighting my lovely CT member Christie! She's a dedicated and talented scrapper and I'm so happy to have her on my team. Here's what you need to know about Christie:

She's engaged to her sweetheart Robby and has two sweet children Sean and Seth. She lives in Georgia and enjoys photography, collecting coins and Barbies, and (of course) digital scrapbooking! This time of year (Spring) is her favorite and she enjoys long walks where she can hear the birds. She is a stay-at-home mom - her toughest job ever! and she enjoys reality TV and Ruby Tuesday's - especially their Blondies. Yum! She's deathly afraid of snakes and hates having to get up early in the morning, but she does it because she loves her boys so much. :)

Here's what she says about being on team GGD, "I love being a GGD girl because I get the most fabulous kits to play with to capture life's wonderful moments with. The girls on the team are fabulous and very creative and I am proud to be along side of them."

I'm glad she's on my team because she is a great support to me. Here are some of my favorite layouts that she has created.

And here is a QP freebie that Christie designed to share with you. She used my kit 70's Flashback available exclusively at Inspiration Lane in their club click for the month of March. (It will be available in my store there in April, but not for such a great deal! LOL) Click on the image to download the QP. :)

Also, I have a new kit coming out this weekend and I wanted to give you a little sneak peek. I'll give you a hint - it matches the alpha I gave away a few weeks ago. ;) Here's a peek. Watch for a free QP with this kit coming up this weekend.

Last of all, I wanted to give you a head's up that I will be hosting a speed scrap on Monday, March 29th at 8:00 EST at Divine Digital. On that day you will have another chance to get my Hoppy Days kit for free so put it on your calendar. I hope you'll join me for some laughs and a quick layout.
Happy Scrapping!

I had so much fun tonight at the Speed Scrap at RAK scraps. What a hilarious bunch of friends! I laughed harder than I have in a long while. :D I wanted to show you the alpha that I gave away tonight as part of the crop. It will be available in stores tomorrow! I also wanted to give you a little freebie I made with the Hoppy Days kit. It's a QP. :) Click HERE or on the image to download it. Check back in a couple of days for a sneak peek of my next kit release coming soon! Larisa
