Layout overload again

I was worried about burying my post about the Cybercrop, so that's why I've been hanging onto a few. Also with some CT's I'm on, I wasn't allowed to post right away. If you are here for the Cybercrop, please scroll down a bit.

This one is for Amanda Geils using her kit Give Thanks.

Also was for a challenge at ScrapMatters (I think most of these were also challenges at SM)

This one was a template challenge at Ellie Lash's CT blog

A Speed Scrap

Template Challenge at SM

For Black Friday the SM girls have a sale and a few made grab bags. This is in Jeni Hopewell's Grab Bag. Isn't it gorgeous?? (Also the Saturday Special)

This is Snap and Scrap's newest Monthly Daily Download Collab, Shabby Little Christmas.

This is also in Jeni Hopewell's Grab BAg.
I also saw fit to purchase Britt-ish Designs and GG Digital Designs' Grab Bags. I have never ever gone wrong with them.

Bunch More Layouts

This one uses These Crazy Days by Ellie Lash and was a part of a template challenge put on by her CT. Every week they post a new challenge and the winner gets a gc to Ellie's shop. I have a special place in my heart for Ellie. Hers was the first CT I was ever on and she has alwasy been so kind and gracious. I love her kits and now try to participate every week.

Have you seen Amanda Geils' new kit Give Thanks? Well here it is from Elemental Scraps

And this is the layout I made with it. I love the pop of that ribbon with the greens and yellows and browns.

This layout was made to use the picture of the drum. The picture challenge at SM is to take a picture in low light, no flash, adjust the ISO. I really like how the page came out. It uses mostly stuff from Happy Scrap Girl.

I am in love with how this layout turned out. It's Ever AFter by Matahati Designs (who I believe is at Scrap Orchard nowadays). It is my daughter's school picture. (Which I should consider posting on my family website...)

This is for a challenge at SM about the last movie you watched.

This is my gorgeous niece (and I REALLY REALLY hope her mom doesn't mind me posting it). This month at S&S, the newsletter is going to feature Marcee Fairchild. This layout will be in it using her kit "Heather" I love the picture (it was taken when we were firefly hunting in PA with our cousins.)

Hope you've enjoyed the eye candy.

This first one uses Becki Kress's kit Feelin' Funky, available at Elemental Scraps. Isn't the alpha great!!

And this one is called Good Night, Sleep Tight by Mel Hains at Snap and Scrap.
I made that word art myself.

Just challenges

These are two layouts I did simply for the challenges. Not for any CT work.

A monochromatic challenge:
And a Grand Theft (scraplift) challenge:
If you care to see who I scraplifted, visit my gallery at ScrapMatters.

Amanda Geils

So do you all remember this kit? I'm so in love with it. I STILL love everything about it.

I made another layout with it. This is a *follow the directions* challenge (I can't remember what it's really called, but it's at ScrapMatters). And this is what I made.
I so love this quote.

Becki Kress Layouts

I have two new layouts for Becki Kress products. The first is using Start Your Engines.

This was for a speed scrap. I was making it with a bum monitor, so I thought the greens were really greys. BUt I still like how it came out. And I love the wordart.

This is a new kit by Becki
and this layout goes with another template Tuesday at SM. The them was the details, so I put in the details of what I love about PA (my home state) and I scoured the internet for these gorgeous photos.


Jeni Hopewell just released this great new kit Benjamin today.

I made 2 layouts with it (they were also for other challenges at scrapmatters). This one corresponds with the Tuesday Template challenge...the theme was what are you thankful for? I chose to be thankful the EPA was out of our yard. It took MONTHS for them to finish and the kids couldn't go outside. Now that they're gone, we're finally enjoying it.

And this one is for Saturday's Special and we played with the pics to make it look sketch like.

This layout was for a speed scrap I participated in. Everything is from Jeni Hopewell, but uses to many kits to mention here. If you care to look it up, go click on my gallery.

This first layout is just one I did for fun.
This layout is for the speed scrap I participated in this morning. I really like how it came out. Uses MArcee Fairchild's kit Piles of Leaves at snap&scrap.

No more waiting

So instead of doing a boatload of layouts in one post, I'm trying to spread it out and post as I do them...we'll see how this goes.
This one uses a collab kit between Becki Kress and Valorie Brown called Start Your Engines.
now if you go to buy it, keep in mind that it only shows up in Valorie's store, not Becki's.

Here is the preview:
And my layout:
Now this one is a new kit by Happy Scrap Girl at ScrapMatters:
Kelly's Apple Farm
And my layout...which also is being used in ScrapMatters current Word Up challenge and Snap and Scrap's add it on challenge.

This layout I made for a challenge on Ellie Lash's CT blog. We had to use each element at least 2x, use more than 1 pic, and use our favorite kit by Ellie. This is what I did.

Thanks for looking!

Lots o Layouts

I've been up to a lot lately:

This card was made for one of the ladies that I visit teach because we missed her this month. It uses Happy Scrap Girl's newest kit Kelly's Apple Farm. You really should look it over. Also for the hybrid card challenge at ScrapMatters.

This uses a mini kit by Brianna Cox in conjunction with the DSD festivities. I made the wordart.

This one is for the Be Inspired! ad challenge at Snap and Scrap for the DSD festivities. The kit is by Amanda Geils (Sporty Girl).

This kit is my CT rotation for this week and uses Charlie Hudson's kit Shabby Old Blues.

This was for the Every day magic challenge at ScrapMatters and uses Hoo Loves you by Amanda Geils

This uses a bunch of stuff. I think it was for a speed scrap. The worn paper is by Happy Scrap Girl.

I think this was another speed scrap. I love this kit. This is one I actually bought...I don't buy very many kits.

This was for a challenge hosted by ellie lash's ct.

This was also for a challenge, but I don't remember what. This is a kit I got for participating in another challenge. (See what happens when I hold onto layouts for too long, I forget why I made them...)

This is with a mini kit by Jeni Hopewell.

And that is all. I'll try not to hang onto them so long next time.
