Just sharing a layout I did.....plan to give more names tomorrow.

I made this layout today. I just felt like scrapping lately. In the mood I guess. I did make this great globe today. Trying to decide what I want to do with it. I like how it came out in this photo. I added my Isabella flowers to the top of it and it came out really cute. The whole page was made with my Baby Isabella kit. Hope you like it.


I'll be back tomorrow with more names and I am still adding all your names to my list. Still got a long list to do but I'm getting through them. So keep adding.

Bye Bye

Blog names set 6....................freebie....

I just wanted to share some layouts or scrapbook pages that I have made. I just felt like making pages yesterday and no designing. Had to assert my other creative energies. Heres what I've made.

This is a page I just made for me with me in it. I got this kit as a freebie from Scrappy Smile with her Photographer kit. The photo was taken by my best friend and creative quick-page designer, Lori Smith.


Now some layout that I made and posted on scrapbook flair
for the "Scrap my Arabians" Challenge . The photos are from the host of the challenge, LilacUnicorn and I used my Chris' Rustic Cowboy Collection kit. I was just playing.





Yeah, I'm doing them in batches again. Wow, none of you liked that. Me neither. There are some on Digifree that do them all separately. Don't know how they do it. Maybe they aren't doing as many as I am. I still have a whole list. Rewrote it actually so I could read it better. I'm highlighting when I'm done. Most of these names go to Amber, Samantha, linda aka lwlittlebit, I did some for Pam at Digitreats (she doesn't know it yet -- do you all remember her husbands name so I can do a Pam & Husband frame -- think she would like it), Cathy, and Pamey58.

Names included are: (yes I know, you have some of them)

New QuickPages from Lori.................freebies.

I posted this page in scrapbook flair today. I used my Baby Isabella kit to make it.
Just changed some of the colors. I made it for the "Exaggerate a Photo" challenge .


My creative quick-page designer has made 2 more quick pages for you all. She gave them to me to give on my blog because she's filled her whole blog with baby pages. Guess she thought we'd be tired of them...NEVER.

Anyway, if you want them..............


Download QP4 Here


Download QP5 HERE

and don't forget to leave Lori some luv when you download.

I made a layout.............or page

I made a layout or scrapbook page of my mom and dads beautiful puppy, Scout. He is a Dachshund (hope I spelled it right) and so pretty. He has the most amazing coat. IT just looks so glamorous in the sunlight. My parents live in a cabin on the lake and he's the Cabin Dog. My puppies love it there too. They have this huge lake to swim in.

Anyway, this is a page of scout snoozing on the lawn. He's sunbathing. HaHa.


I used my SCOUT word frame to make this. I also just made these papers. And the top frame I just made to. Turned out pretty cool. Looks alot like my Chris' Rustic Cowboy kit. I may do these as an add-on to that kit or just make them into another kit. Not sure yet. But they look pretty cool.

I am going to work on some more name frames today. So, I'll have to post them later and I am going to redo those last ones that I gave out. Noone liked them the way I did them. So, batches it is for sure. Easier on me too.

So take care and have a great day and I'll talk to you later.

Bye Bye

A layout using my Baby Isabella Kit........................


I made this scrapbook page using my Baby Isabella kit. These are photos of the mom and dad to be of Isabella, Amanda and Jimmy. This is Isabellas baby shower. We got Isabella her very first teddie bear that was a light brown with baby green writing that said first teddy bear. That was a gift to Isabella from my Shaylee and JoJo, you all know how she shares her stuffed animals (not). haha. Then Jose and I got her blankets, a dress, some one's-sees (however you spell it), baby bath, baby lotion, baby powder, receiving blankets, a pacifier with the attachment so little Isabella doesn't loose it and a teething ring. I put it all inside a cute little basket to keep her clothes or whatever in. I really hope she liked everything we got her. Aren't they such a cute set of parents.

Everyone is telling me not to do the frames individually anymore. Noone likes it. I just saw someone else doing that and thought I would try it. Very relieved that you didn't like it. It as a pain. I'm going to redo the last ones and correct my misspelling and give it to you in a batch with probably more names included. Thanks for responding. Glad to have all of your input. Still have a long list of names. You can keep sending in the names. I'll just keep doing them for you. Makes a great freebie to give to all of you as long as you don't mind me getting them done when I can. Take care all and I'll get back with you. I have to go to sleep now. Got to go to work at midnight again.

PhotoHunt: Theme........Hanging





Here is the photo of my mischievous squirrel that taunts my puppies. I got this great shot of him hanging from the fence in my back yard. When I went to the Photo Hunt site and saw the theme was hanging, I knew this was the photo.


My Mischievous Squirrel

I love my new house. It's so peaceful that all I want to do is sit at my computer digiscrapping and watch out my back window for the birds, cardinals in particular, and this mischievous squirrel. This squirrel is so funny. He plays with my puppies JoJo and Shaylee. He takes off down the fence and then comes just really close to my window and taunts them. It is too funny. He also poses for me almost every morning. I got this great shot of him hanging upside down on the fence. I'll post other photos but the first one will be the photo hunt photo.





Hi everyone,

I changed my blog just a little bit. I put the slide shows of the kits I'm selling on the side of my blog and you can purchase them there. Thought it might be easier that way then going to another page to order them.

Are the slideshows too much or should I just have the photo of the whole kit on there? Just let me know which works better for everyone.

Talk later. Bye Bye

Decided to work on an actual kit today..........

I am working on a kit for my very best friends daughter whom is going to have a baby girl. Her name is going to be Isabella Renee. The babys was due at the end of August but I think they've jumped it up a little bit. My best friend, Lori gave her daughter (Amanda) a baby shower the other day for Isabella. We all had a good time.

She made some pages for her and you can see them on her blog Nanas Nick Nacks . Hopefully I'm not too late getting this kit together. She's trying to put together an album for Amanda.

Here is a sneak peak..............I've added much more to it than this. The colors are brown, pink, teal, yellow and white.


I pretty much just started on it day before yesterday. I have it pretty much done but 4shared doesn't seem to like me all that much today so it's taking a while to upload everything.

I've added butterflies, flowers (lots), umbrellas, crowns and tiaras, swirlies, ribbons with bows, some round frames, baby safety pins, zippers..........................

I still need to make some more frames and then I "HAVE" to make some kind of tag. Lori gets onto me for never making some kind of note or tage to write on. Honestly I don't think about it. Crazy, huh. I do alphas but she likes to write on tags. My bad. She doesn't really get onto me I just notice in the layouts she does with my kits. She'll either use someone elses or just make something from mine to look like a tag. My poor Lori..........guess I need to try harder. TAGS TAGS TAGS TAGS...............so I'm gonna work on those. I do lots of papers so there's no reason not to do tags. With all the textures and designs on the papers they would look great. I just forget. haha

Anyway, gotta see what 4shared's doing to me. Be back later. And i'll probably give the kit for free, at least till the babies born.

What font I use is............

Hi,

Jodi I used the Ariel Black font for the sports frames and most of them that I'm sharing with you. The ones with my names were done with Cooper Black.

Someone left me a note that I misspelled badmitten and that it's supposed to be badminton. Sorry about that. That's just how we always said it. You know us Texans say things different. I actually had never tried to spell it before, wasn't even sure that that was the actual name or something we came up with. That happens a lot too. So sorry but I'm probably not going to fix it. My oops.

Also, Meg sent me some layouts using my frames and they are awesome. Gonna see if she'll give me permission to post them. They turned out wonderful.

Talk later, just wanted to let you Jodi know what font I'm using. I may not have told before.

Later.

So if you get tired of waiting on me you can always see if she made one yet. Not sending you away, I just thought it was cool someone else was doing it too. Hers look the most like mine. Don't know if they are the same though. Hopefully mine work pretty easy for you.

Also Terry's Thing-O-My-Jigs is making some cool ones too. Hers are not peoples names but places and things. Not sure if hers are templates or png though.

And DMK Designs has a couple too. She put up love today. Still, don't know if png or template. Her rectangle has rounded edges. Pretty cool looking.

Plus, I'm really trying to only do names that I want for myself and I'm trying not to you anything that Pam might have in her kit. I'm not trying to compete with her. That's why I'm doing mostly games. Her stuff is wonderful and I couldn't even compare to Pam at digitreats on anything. I just love her stuff so much. She's a sweet and dear digi-friend.

Now to nominate my award to 7 blogs.

My nominations are:

  • Kirsty Wiseman - I love her blog. She has such amazing photos that she shares and I love the photos she posts of her daughter. She's adorable. And she just has great stories to tell.
  • Erika of CurlyWirlyTwirlyGirlies - She posts freebies of Pam's famous kits too. I just love them. And she loves my puppies and has one of her very own. Thank you Erika.
  • Dani of Dani's Delusions - I found her blog thru Hummies World. She has some great stuff. I loved her potty training kit. She even has the toilet.
  • Lori of Nana's Nick Nacks - She is my best friend and creative designer for my kits. She like to make a lot of my quick pages.
  • Jannidee at Janniscrap Designs - She has wonderful stuff. I've been subscribed to her blog for a while now even though I haven't yet joined this time. I've made lots of pages with her great kits. She's going thru a tough time right now emotionally. So lets send her some love.
  • Hummie's World - She has such wonderfull stuff and has a lot of tutorials for you to learn photoshop.
  • And of course ......last and nowhere near least because she's my favorite blog.........Pam at DIGITREATS - She's amazing with everything she makes. She has so much going on at her house whether it be some disaster that just happens, vacation, a manic contractor or just the fact that she has 3 small children (makes her a wonder for me) and she still finds time to give all of us a freebie everyday for the ABC kits. I admire her and hope I can only be half as good as she one day. Thank you Pamela for everything that you do.
So there are my award winners. Thank you all so much.

Just wanted to show you..............


I just wanted to show you what I just made. I'm adding this frame to the sports name frames. Isn't this adorable. This is my BFF's granddaughter Ashleigh. Love it.

Plus my friend is going to absolutely love it. Guarantee it.

Again you'll have to choose the black with the magic wand and then fill with the photo. Toooooooo Cute.

It will be a while before I get the whole kit posted though. Just wanted to share.

Thanks,
april

My Name Frames .............................. freebie !!!!!!!!

Sorry guys, I've taken a little time for myself. haha. No, I've been busy making your frames that I hadn't finished the ones that i wanted for myself. Now I have them. I'm also making some for my puppies and all you puppy and dog lovers out there. (just realized i hadn't added anything about kittens with it. Maybe I'll add them too later) Anyway, look at the cool frame I made of Me and Jose. Isn't it pretty.

When you use these frames you have to use the wand to choose the black and then fill it with the photo you want. I made the shadow light enough that it won't choose parts of the shadow.

I also included a vacation frame with the words vacation inside the frame. Just a little different. I was just playing. And I used a different font for these. These are the only ones I will be using with that font.

I've got so many names to do that I can go changing from font to font so don't be mad if I only keep using the font that I had been using. Got too much on my plate already. But I will get everyones done. Just wanted to take a break to work on some for myself.

If you would like any of these frames you can get them here .

Almost forgot to list the names:

  • ALLISON
  • DAVID & ALLISON
  • MOM & DAD
  • DENNIS & SHARON
  • LORI & DONALD
  • DAVID BRIAN
  • APRIL DAWN
  • VACATION
  • THOMAS
  • RONNIE
  • UNCLE RONNIE
  • DENNIS
  • SHARON
  • JUNIOR
  • THE BOYS
  • JOSE
  • APRIL
  • APRIL & JOSE
  • CORPUS CHRISTIE
  • BUBBA
  • DAVID
  • DAVEY
I think that is all of them.
