New Templates For SBC+ Users

I am so excited for all my fellow Storybook Creator Plus users! If you haven't noticed, some template designers have begun to offer their templates not just as psd, tif or png files but also as page files!!! We can use png files, but page files are just like like Creative Memories' Click and Fill pages - super easy to use and customizable. I'm proud to say I will be converting Connie Prince's templates into page files.

The first one available for purchase is her For the Love of Layers Volume 11:

This is available individually or as part of her Batter Batter Swing Value Bundle:

These are available at her stores at:

I just finished up a new set of templates and will be working on another this week so watch for those announcements soon!

Happy scrapping!!

A Frosty Surprise

I wasn't expecting much exciting this morning when I got up, had breakfast and got my son off to school. But then I got online to do a quick email check and read today's Gotta Pixel newsletter and was SOOO excited to see my layout in the Layout of the Day section!!! It makes my day anytime I get recognized in the Gallery Stand Outs for the day, but Layout of the Day (LOTD) is like getting an Oscar for scrapbooking to me.
I had almost as much fun making this page as we did making the snowman. Gotta Pixel recently celebrated Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) week with a fun thread in the forum and numerous RAKs by various designers of gift certificates to their stores. I was lucky enough to get a $5 gift certificate to Mye De Leon's store where I picked up her A Frosty Surprise kit and wordart. I just loved the colors and those cute snowmen. I knew it would be a great kit for my snowy, winter pictures. Then I checked out the new Topsy Turvy Template challenge at Scrapbook Bytes and picked up Connie Prince's template pieces. I love that challenge because you get the basic pieces of a template and then can arrange/resize them however you want and add any additional pieces you want. When I was done, I ended up with my fun snowman page (image is linked to my gallery at Gotta Pixel).

I just love so many parts of this kit - the blue snowy paper, the yellow plaid paper, the snowflake scatter, the stitching... I'm so happy how they all came together to help me capture this great memory of making a snowman with my son!

Here's the kit I used by the fabulous Mye De Leon (image is linked to her store at Gotta Pixel).

On this cold, March morning, it was truly a frosty surprise to get LOTD, and I couldn't be more honored. What a great way to kick off the weekend!!!! Hope you have a great weekend, too!
