Rust And Roses: CT Inspiration Layout

I was really jumping up and down when I saw the latest release in the Raspberry Road Designs shop! Rust and Roses is so gorgeous! I'm a bit dissappointed I already finished the family book for my mother in law because I would have used this kit for it on many many pages.
Just look at the amazing collection of vintage elements and the warm colors. It's the perfect kit to create your layouts with your treasured family memories.

Although I already finished the book for my mother in law, I still love to play with the photos, so I used one photo from around 1925 that my mother in law found in a box at her mother's house a couple of years ago:

Great Outdoors: CT Inspiration Layout

One of my favorite themes for digital scrapbooking kits is Great Outdoors, so I am really excited to show you the new Great Outdoors collection in the Raspberry Road Designs shop!
There are some fun sets available to complete your collection. I especially love the stacked paper set:

In the Summer of 2013 we were in Austria for a couple of days and we took a lot of photos of the nature there. There are beautiful mountains and little rivers and for me, that's the recipe for the real outdoors. Here's an inspiration layout I made with the wonderful collection:

Yard Sale: Quickpages and Freebie

Happy First-Weekend-of-Summer everyone!

Bre here, celebrating the kick-off of the long summer days! I know, I know, the longest day of the year technically just passed, but we still have lots and lots of long summer days to enjoy ourselves.

One of my favorite summer activities, besides getting a bunch of scrapping done, is to scour the neighborhoods for awesome yard and estate sales. I don't know what gets my going more- the routine of getting up and plotting out my route with a tasty cup of coffee, the thrill of the hunt, or the excitement of finding well-loved treasures. Either way, it's a super fun event that I now can document beautifully with Susan's gorgeous Yard Sale Collection.

Like al of her work, this collection is enormous, and can easily be used to create all types of layouts! take a peek at just a few of the pages I've been able to make with these beautiful pieces:






See? Four pages and I haven't even begun to scratch the surface that is the great thing about the Raspberry Road Collections- they are just so versatile! I order to make these pages I used the Yard Sale Elements, Papers, and  Word Art.

I enjoyed this so much that I decided to make these into quick pages, available now in the shop!


You can pick them up HERE.  I hope you like them- they were so much fun to create!

As a thank you for reading my (as always) lengthy post, I have made a little something for your pocket scrapping pages:


Download them HERE!

Now that you're done shopping and downloading, go out and enjoy that sweet weather!

Ocean Breeze: CT Inspiration Layout

New in the Raspberry Road Designs shop: Ocean Breeze! I think this is another a must have sea kit from Susan! To be honest, this kit released just a day after I finished my vacation 2013 album and I was so dissapointed I already ordered it without the possibility of using this kit for my layouts!
Not only the elements are amazing, also the papers and other sets are!

Although my vacation book was already finished, I couldn't resist playing with a photo from the lake we visited:
I hope you like my inspiration! Irene

Lilac Cottage: CT Inspiration Layout

As some of you already know I love natural elements in kits and well, as you can see you on the preview, Lilac Cottage is loaded with natural elements in the most beautiful colors!
Well, to be short, I couldn't resist creating a layout with this amazing collection!
I used a cluster from the collection as a base for my layout and then started adding some of the gorgeous elements like little flowers and butterflies!
Hugs, Irene

Cold Winters Day: Quickpages & Freebie

Hello fellow scrappers!

It's Bre here! I don't know about you, but it has been a super busy sort of Spring for me and my family. Some really interesting job things and hectic work schedules, and we took a deep breath, looked at our savings, and decided to buy a tiny house! I am unbelievably excited to decorate and put together new furniture, lol. The only downside? Lots less time for scrapping. Between my tightened schedule and the super chilly temps ( here in VA we were still in the 20's last week. 20's!!! yuck.) I haven't felt very creative at all.

This week I decided to just get it together and go searching for some inspiration, and of course I found it in one of Susan's collections- Cold Winter Days. Hey, if ya' can't beat 'em, join em', right? lol. Just look at how beautiful everything is:



and




these are just two of the many different pieces of this HUGE collection, and you can pick them up HERE and HERE.

Take a peek at what I made:



See? I TOLD you she inspired me! I even did a few more pages that were a bit too personal to share. It was like the scrappy floodgates opened!

I got to thinking that maybe some of you have winter pics you haven't scrapped yet, so I made a few of these layouts into Quickpages. They are now in the store for the LOW LOW PRICE of $1.99. That's practically a STEAL at .50 a layout :)



Pick them up HERE.

Now as a thanks for sticking with me and my super long post, I have a freebie for you!



Get it HERE while it is still up.

I love giving away gifts, but remember, Susan is the most generous designer out there. She has lovely gifts all over the blogs- including a lovely add on kit that matches these pages. When you pick them up, be sure to put the add on in your shopping cart too!

Locally Grown: CT Inspiration Layout

A release from a couple of weeks ago is Locally Grown. This gorgeous kit is filled with deliciousness! Fresh vegetables, lots of garden stuff and more in the most amazing natural colors. This kit is like a vegetable garden itself!
Also the papers are great to play with! You can layer the different colors and patterns in many ways to get lots of different layouts: 
Lately I've been cooking lots of Italian recipes and I'm using vegetables I haven't used before. Not that everything turned out wonderful, but most of the vegetables we eat are delicious. So here's a layout I made with one of my kitchen experiments:
