Project Life Inspiration: Shabby Flakes

Hello there Scrapping Friends!

Bre here, just stopping by to share a few layouts I have done recently. While I am on a mission to finish some years past Christmas and Holiday pages, I would also really like to stay current on a few of my more recent projects.

On that note, have any of you jumped on the Project Life bandwagon lately?

I have been doing PL for the past few years and I really love the look of it. I tend to be a bit more eclectic when I pocket scrap, using literally dozens of kits on a page. But that would never stop me from using all of Susan's beautiful kits! Though the following few pages may have bits from many designers, I hope you can see how versatile her collections are and how much fun it can be to play with them on multi kit pages!

For last weeks pages I started off with a base of Becky Higgin's Winter cards since I did most of this in the Project Life app, but then I exported my pages to photoshop and added in lots of wonderful goodies from Susan's Shabby Flakes Element Pack :



And here are my pages:



Recognize those adorable flakes and scarves? You can take a peek at my full credits on Susan's Shabby Flakes Pinterest Board Here.

Be sure to follow all of the Raspberry Road Designs Pinterest Boards for lots of inspiration and a great way to browse all of the collections in the shoppe!

Christmas Thyme QuickPages and Freebie!

Happy New Year, One and All!

Bre here, ready to get the new year off to a good start with some scrapping goodness!

I don't know about you, but I didn't do nearly as many pages last year as I would have liked. Between buying a home, moving, my dad passing, and growing a baby, I didn't meet my yearly goals or finish nearly as many projects as I would like.

One area I am abysmally behind in (I know we aren't supposed to feel behind, but man I sure do!) is in my holiday scrapping. So so sooooo many years of winter and Christmas pages that just are partially done and not really represented in my books. Since I often only see my family this one time of year, it is important to get them in my books. In an attempt to make some headway, I scrolled through the pages of holiday kits that Susan has created over the years, and boy was I stunned to find out just how much goodness was in the store! So many breathtaking kits in there! Over the next few weeks I will be sharing my Christmas scrapping journey- hopefully I will inspire you if you haven't finished up already!

First up is Susan's adorable Christmas Thyme Collection! Just take a look at these sweet Elements and Papers:



Who wouldn't falling in love with those sweet snowmen and Santa's? Make sure you look at all of the Collection in the store, as there is an adorable FREEBIE kit waiting there for you.

I was so inspired by the collection that I made enough layouts to make a full set of Quickpages. These are great if you are just looking to get some scrapping done in a jiffy, which is particularly great for holiday scrapping. Take a look:


Here is a close up of the pages I made with them:




You'll see that the bottom two are actually a two page spread, which is awesome for getting a whole bunch of photos scrapped!

If you like them, the pages are available for purchase HERE. I think they are a great value, and I hope you agree.

As a thank you for being such loyal followers, I made one extra page for you. 


You can get that HERE. thanks so much, and I'll see you soon!

Woodland Christmas: CT Inspiration Layout

After a very busy period I took some extra days off from work to enjoy the Christmas season. I picked out some recipes and bought all the ingredients. So for that part I am ready for Christmas. There was one thing that I still had to do! Creating Christmas cards. And I couldn't do it better without this wonderful Woodland Chrismas collection in the Raspberry Road Designs shop!
I really like the classic look of this collection. The traditional colors are so wonderful and besides the wonderful traditional elements you can also find these gorgeous papers in this kit!
And here's my Christmas card for this year:
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2015.

Bear Necessities: CT Quickpages & Freebie

Hello everyone!

Bre here, and I'm back to show you the rest of the lovely Bear Necessities creations like I promised. I have had such a blast working with this kit- don't let the adorable teddy bear theme limit your creativity (though who doesn't love a good, squishable teddy bear??? :P) - after 7 layouts, only two of my pages features teddy bears at all.:) This really is a versatile collection!

I loved the pages I made so much that I decided to make them into quickpages for the Raspberry Road Designs store::

























A closer look at my finished pages:
























If you like what you see, these can be picked up HERE in the shop.

As a thank you for looking, I wanted to share one of the other pages I made. This was such a quick, fun layout to make, and I'm so pleased that it turned out this way:





















Please download this HERE for a limited time. I hope you enjoy, and have a great rest of your week!

Bear Necessities: CT Inspiration Layout 2

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Bre here, stopping in to share another Bear Necessities page to give you a bit of mid-week inspiration. For this page, I wanted to make something that was not bear or baby themed:

























This page captures my stay at a fancy hotel in Richmond, VA, and as you can see, there isn't a teddybear in sight! One of my favorite things is taking a kit and using it in a different way- it's an awesome way to stretch your creative muscles!

Here are a few more pieces to this huge collection. Take a look HERE and HERE:







































I'll be back in a few days to share another layout, and maybe a little something to share later this week!

Bear Necessities: CT Inspiration Layout

Good morning fellow scrappers!

It's Bre, and I am in the mood for celebrating! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. There's nothing quite like it- the crisp morning air, the beautiful leaves, and of course everything pumpkin flavored coming out of the woodwork! But I digress...

I had the chance this week to scrap something else that I am celebrating this week:

























The second I saw Susan's adorable Bear Necessities collection, I knew I wanted to scrap about my pregnancy. The squishable teddies, coupled with the heartfelt collection of word art, make it just the thing for my little one's first ultrasound. Though we have had quite a few more at this point, and are gearing up for our 20wk ultrasound this week, this first one is so special to me, and I wanted a page that captured the magic I felt when seeing my little one for the first time. Bear Necessities was just the thing!

Take a look at these gorgeous elements and papers:






































Aren't they the sweetest things? And the best part is there's so much more in the shoppe! Head on over and take a peek!

PS: I have several more layouts that I will be sharing with this collection, and HINT- they are definitely NOT all baby related!

Cottage Rose: CT Inspiration Layout

I still had a collection on my wishlist and today I finally had time to create a layout with it: Cottage Rose! It's one of those gorgeous collections in the Raspberry Road Designs shop that is loaded with amazing natural elements in the most beautiful colors!

The combination of green, yellow and red is so gorgeous and the paper pack contains some wonderful patterned papers in these colors.

Here's my layout:
Hugs, Irene
