LOTD 11/25

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm so late with this post. I've been having a heck of a time with my internet connection all day and am finally able to get online for more than 5 minutes without it freezing up on me. So lame!! So anyway, this week, both of the layouts I chose were made with Rosy Cheeks. First up is Snow Much Fun by aevans96 -

I love the overall composition of this page, the soft b&w photos with the colors of the kit, the paper strips, the shadows and title work with just the right amount of sparkle - it's perfect! Wonderful job on this :o)

Next is a page by CT member Kristy (scrapglass), called Snow Day -

What do I love about this layout? Let's start with the blocking - it looks awesome! Adorable photos, great word art, neat clustering, perfect paper choices. She really did an amazing job on this page. Great work, as usual, Kristy!! :o)

With Christmas coming up, are you on the lookout for a beautiful holiday kit? A+Designs has a BEAUTY for only $2.00 (60% off!!!) called Christum. Take a look at this!

Need to see it in action? Here's what I made with it -

I told you! A total steal for only $2.00 - pick it up at ESS today!

Here is the layout I made the quick page from.

LOTD 11/18

Good morning all!  This week, I have chosen 2 layouts featuring Mel's latest collab kit with Jeanette Bollinger, Rosy Cheeks.  Here is Winter, by fun2educate -

(leave some love here!)

This layout is so simple, yet beautiful!  I adore the perfectly blended winter scene photo and the way she has it peeking through the window frame with the bird perched on the ledge, the monochromatic color scheme with her title work and simple cluster are all the finishing touches this page needs!  Amazing job!

Next is a 2-page layout by Becky (beckyandjames) called Never Scare Mumma -

(leave some love here and here!)

I think she did a wonderful job of scrapping such a dramatic time in her life.  Her pictures speak a thousand words, and if you've ever had a child in the hospital before, you can absolutely relate to the worry and fear Becky was feeling.  Big hugs to you, mumma!

What I love about this layout are all of her paper strips, her use of multiple photos and 2-page format, and the way she used a winter kit to scrap about something other than winter!  Fabulous job, Becky!

To pick up Rosy Cheeks or any other A+Designs goodies, head over to Mel's store at ESS where almost EVERYTHING is marked down!  After you do that, be sure to post your gorgeous eye candy in the A+Designs gallery so I can feature it in our weekly LOTD spotlight :o)  Happy shopping and scrapping!!

Happy Friday, Happy Freebie

Well, it is Friday and time again for another freebie quick page. I made this layout with Funky Christmas, a collab between A+ Designs and Danimoy Designs. Since it is getting close to Christmas, I figured it was time to showcase this beautiful kit! The colors are so fun to work with and the elements are very unique and fabulous! Check it out in the store here. Also, there are two more quick pages still available for download two posts down!

LOTD 11/11 & a deal!

Mornin' everyone :o)  As I sit here at the computer, I'm looking out the window at the leafless trees, the gray morning sky, the frost covering the car, and I can't help but realize that winter is on its way.  Where I live, you never know if it's going to be a white winter or just really stinkin' cold and icy!  As I was browsing Mel's gallery for layouts to choose for LOTD, this beautiful winter scene, created by lauramarie, grabbed my attention -

(Layout created using Mel's new collab kit with Jeanette Bollinger, Rosy Cheeks.)

I think the monochromatic color scheme with a pop of green from the snowflakes is just stunning, the window photo frame is perfect for her wonderful photo, and the elements she chose are spot on.  It's a clean and simple design but she captures a beautiful winter scene perfectly.  Well done, lauramarie!  Be sure to leave her some love for Winter Fun here.

The next page I chose is a layout by CT member raynedrops (Rayne), called Precious -

(Layout created using Plum Silly, by A+Designs)

As a mother of 3, pictures of my babies feet are definitely precious and treasured keepsakes.  We all know how fast children grow and before you know it, their feet are not as little and as precious as they once were.  I love this b&w photo and how it pops off the page, her beautiful cluster, the layered papers, the way the ribbon falls off the page and her simple but accurate title.  Rayne's layout gives me a lump in my throat because my own boys are just sprouting up right before my eyes.  This layout reminds me to stop and truly cherish the time I have with my children while they are still young and I hope it does you too.  Thank you, Rayne!  Be sure to leave her some love here.

REMEMBER:  If you want a shot at having your A+Designs LO featured on the blog, be sure to upload it to Mel's gallery at ESS!  Don't have any A+Designs products?  Then check out her store and pick some up!  Here are a couple of great deals to help you get started -

Rosy Cheeks - a collaboration with Jeanette Bollinger Designs

Look at those colors and all that sparkle!  This kit is perfect for showcasing any type of winter photos you have lying around, waiting to be scrapped.  Right now, you can get Rosy Cheeks for only $3.00 - that's 50% off!

Need to give your mojo a jumpstart?  Then check out Mel's latest addition to the Templistic template series, Templistic: Nature's Way -

These great templates are a sure-fire way to help wake up your creativity, and for only $2.00, they are a steal!  Stop into Mel's shop and pick something wonderful up today!  Happy scrapping everybody!!

Are you sad because it is Monday?

Well, hopefully this will cheer you up! I am here with some freebie quick pages. I have decided to give you a quick page from a new kit and one from an older kit - just so you don't forget all the great stuff over in Mel's store at Enchanted Studio Scraps.

First up is Mel's portion of the Create a Collab kit Apple Pie. The colors of this kit are so great and, like always, Mel's elements and papers are fabulous! I love the sparkle and all the great flowers. She also has three great matching alphas - go check them out.

Here is my quick page:

The next kit is a favorite of mine called Adventures Ahead. I have two boys so the colors and elements are perfect. But, if you really look closely, this kit would be great for many layouts: school, sports, playground, the sky's the limit!

Here is my quick page:

I'll be back in two weeks with some more quick pages and Rayne will be here next Monday so make sure you are following us! Also, sign up for the newsletter for kit releases and freebies! The sign up is near the top on the right.

LOTD 11/4 & a deal!

This week, I am featuring a couple of pages from the talented A+Designs CT.  First up, a page by Jenn (jenn33199) called Annie -

Jenn used Mel's CAC: Apple Pie kit to create this gorgeous layout.  I adore the green, brown and cream color scheme, the composition and balance of the page and who can resist that smile?  I think Jenn did a fabulous job showing the versatility of this kit - just wonderful!

Next up, a page by the ever-so-talented Jan (IntenseMagic), called Proud -

Jan used the newer Whimsy kit by A+Designs to create this beautiful layout.  First off, I'd like to take a moment to thank Jan's son for his dedication and service to his country.  It is more appreciated than he will ever know!  I also want to let Jan know she most definitely can and should be proud of her son.  As American's we all should be!  Thank you both!  Now, what I'm really digging on her layout is the monochromatic color scheme, her choice of elements, her beautiful clustering and title work, the way everything is positioned left of center and, of course, the wonderful photo of her handsome soldier.  Fantastic work, lady!  Congratulations to Jenn and Jan for being this weeks LOTD's! :o)  Remember, if you would like your page considered for next week's LOTD on the blog, be sure to upload your page using any of the A+Designs products to Mel's gallery at ESS.

On to the deals...

November 1 marked the release of the Create A Collab kit Apple Pie and what a collab it is!  Check out Mel's part -

On top of that gorgeousness (is that even a word?!), Mel put out a coordinating alpha set with 3 different alphas AND another amazing template pack!

Full of beautiful colors, flowers and sparkle, you could use this kit to scrap just about anything!  If you hurry, all three of these products can be found in Mel's shop at ESS for only $2.00 each!  I told you, it's a deal!  You won't want to miss it!
