I love Simply Yin templates - they are one of my "go-to" products for digi-scrapping.  I knew I wanted to do a 2 page layout for these pics but I had a TON of pics... with Yin's layouts I always can make it work!

Boo at the Zoo!

Cheer Camp

Skating page

I rarely impulsively buy scrapping kits.  I tend to plan my purchases carefully around sales and deals!  But when I saw this cute kit by Traci Reed, I had to have it!  I had the perfect pictures for it too!  I love how this page turned out!  The kit is "Around the Rink".

Necessity is the mother of invention... another freebie!

Is it just me, or is there really a lack of high school themed kits in the scrapbooking world these days?  Does everyone stop scrapping before their kids reach high school?  I went to do a page on my daughter playing powder puff football and couldn't find ANY kits with that theme!  But as someone once said, "Necessity is the mother of invention" - So I made my own, and of course I'm going to share it with you! :)

Here's my page I did:

And here's a preview of the freebie kit I'm giving you today!

All I ask is that you PLEASE leave a comment if you download it!  I love hearing that other people enjoy my little kits!  To download, just click HERE

Enjoy! :)  And if you see any good high school themed kits on the web, please let me know!!!  I have several more years of this torture!

Marching Band Page & Freebie Word Art & Tags!

I did a marching band page and love how it turned out!  I had to make the word art & tags myself because there is such a lack of band kits!  I made a marching band kit last year that is still free on this blog (see this post!), but I wanted to do something different.  I made 2 tags and 3 word art (I also included a copy in white if that works better for you).  Scroll down to download the freebie!
Here's my page (the template is from Simply Yin):

and here's the preview of the free word art/tags:

You can download the freebie here.  All I ask is that you take a minute to leave a comment if you download.  Thanks! :)

Another Freebie! Project 365 Every Day Frames

Today I'm going to share with you the frames I made for the template I posted the other day.  This way you can use them on other pages if you would like to.  The file contains a frame for each day in both black and white.  Remember, you can always recolor the frames to any color by following these steps in photoshop elements (I believe they are the same for regular photoshop too):
1.  With the layer selected that you want to color, click on "edit" and "fill layer". You may have to simplify the layer first and it will prompt you to do this. If it doesn't prompt you, you can click on layer and then simplify layer at the top of the screen.

2. When the fill box comes up, be sure that "preserve transparency" is checked and select "color" from the drop down menu under "use" and choose your color.
3. Click "ok" and your frame will be the color you chose!  Easy Peezy lemon Squeezy!
So here is the preview of the frames ( you already know what they look like if you downloaded yesterday's template and if you didn't download yesterday's template, you can get it HERE)......

and here is the download link at Mediafire  DOWNLOAD HERE

I'd love you see any pages you do with them!  And please leave a comment if you download them.  Thanks and enjoy! :)

Freebie 365 Template for you!

***** The template has been fixed and re-uploaded to mediafire and 4shared. It is a layered PSD file.   ********

I'm doing project 365 and so far, so good!  I've made it to March and I'm still going!  I am getting tired of the templates I have, though and I can't seem to find ones I really like.  I like clean lines, but not just completely boxed in and I really like it when the photos are framed (this must go back to my old paper scrapping days when everything had to be matted - or double matted!).  So I decided to make some of my own templates and I always love sharing so I'm posting them here for you!  I made 2 today, but I liked the second one better so that's what I'm starting with.... so I give you project 365 template 2!  Here's the download link...
I have uploaded the file to 4shared also - here is the link 4shared download site
I would LOVE IT if you would please leave me a comment if you download it!  Enjoy!
Here's the preview of the template.....
And here's the page I did with it..... the kit is Everyday Life #2 from
I will be sharing Template #1 on another day and will also be sharing the little frames I made with the days of the week that are included on this template.  Leave me some comments! :)
