My husband and I don’t actually celebrate Valentine’s day. He has surprised me a couple of times over the last thirty-one years but they were exceptions to the rule. Leading up to Valentine’s day designers release tons of products aimed at this day. The layout I made today uses a template from JoCee Designs and a kit by Snickerdoodle Designs. My layout is not too “Valentiney”, but then neither am I.

Today’s layout, Instinct of Love, is about the love grandparents feel for their grandchildren. Of course, I can’t speak for all grandparents but I believe the vast majority feel the way I do. Grandchildren are a gift from God. Their mere presence brings us such joy it’s palatable.
I was happy to see the word art challenge at The Digichick this month. I wanted to create a layout that demonstrates this instinctual love. I love the soft colors in this kit and the joy in the child’s face as she’s surrounded by love.

I think this kit, Quirky Hearts, by Kimeric Kreations was made for these photos. The wood papers really give it a country feel and it isn’t too “sappy”. The template used with the journal cards and other embellishments made it fast & easy to put together. Links are in the credits below. You do need to be logged into the store.

The Digichick has a new “closed” Facebook group for posting layouts using TDC products. It’s called The Digichick Connection. If you’d like to join, you’ll receive this free mini kit from Kimerics Kreations. You can find the group here.
There is NO advertising. It is for layouts using Digichick products. Both customers and TDC CT members can post layouts. You can use templates from other stores or designers as long as the kit is from The Digichick.
As time goes by it seems we treasure our loved ones even more. This week Kim at Kimeric Kreations released a gorgeous kit “As Time Goes By”. I know you’ll agree, the colors are beautiful. I thought it was a perfect kit to scrap this picture of my mother when she was in her early 20’s. A gorgeous kit for my gorgeous mother.
As always, this kit is on sale until tomorrow night. Run on over and grab it here.
If you love challenges and freebies, and who doesn’t, this one’s for you! The free template for the challenge is designed by Meagan’s Creations. You can find it here. You have to check out but it’s free. The kit “Love My Life” is also by Meagan’s Creations. It’s here.
I’m happy to say my creative team hiatus is finally over. I believe I’ve found my happy place. By nature, I prefer things organized and I like to know what’s expected of me. Check and check. At the same time, it’s great to be among people with the same interests, that love scrapping and want to have fun. Check, check, check. And to put a little icing on the cake, I get to work with my favorite designers and my favorite store! Can’t beat that.
The Digichick, and all the creative chicks that work behind the scenes have got it goin’ on. The CT call I’ve been waiting finally called, I applied immediately and waited on pins and needles for their decisions. When I opened my email Tuesday morning I was so excited to find I’d been accepted to the team. Woot! Woot!
You can expect to see a lot of layouts and news about new releases, challenges, special events and all things Digichick. One of the new releases today is Smooch by Sas Designs. Just in time for you to scrap some layouts of the ones you love and it’s on sale right now.
I used Kimeric Kreations February Fan template for this layout. Here are the links:
I love fonts and font challenges! Shopping for fonts is right up there with shopping for shoes or purses for me. Font challenges are great because someone else does all the work. Usually there is a list with several fonts that they think are cool. They provide the links and all I have to do is download any I want & post a layout using one or more. Easy peasy!
I made the layout below for the font challenge at The Digichick. If you aren’t participating, you should. They have great challenges every month in their forum.
The kit is Boys Will Be Boys by Kimeric Kreations. The font is H&B Sketch Demo.
