Next is an older kit that is on sale for 40% off for a short time. Rio +20 is one of my favorite kits in my Scrappiness Designs stash! Not only do I love this kit, but I love the story behind it..."Eco 92 was a major United Nations conference that took place in Rio de Janeiro June 3-14, 1992. Twenty years later they met again in a huge event known as Rio +20."

Templates, templates, and more templates!

Who loves a good template and knows where to find the top secret location of some of the most awesome template designers? This girl!! Okay, maybe not top secret, but I'll bet there are some of you who haven't stumbled upon them yet.

Today I want to focus on one designer in particular - Emily - the quirky, fun-loving designer behind Inspired by You Designs. Emily's store, located at Scraps N Pieces, is filled with nothing but beautiful templates just waiting for you to add your own special touches that make them your own. And let me tell you, this girl has a talent for templates! I was going to pick just one set of templates to highlight, but as I looked through her products, well, there is no picking just one! So, here is a little peek at some of my favorites.

First up is the Alphabetty series. Alphabetty templates are perfect for a 365 or 52 project, a fun filled visit to the zoo, or any special cuteness displayed those adorable little people in your life! Each Alphabetty template pack contains a set of 4 CU friendly templates that are part of a 26 template alphabet series. Eight down, eighteen to go. The anticipation is killing me!

Everyone needs a little grunge in their lives, so next up is the Gritty Grimy Grungy Goodness Templates. Grunge makes me smile, and these grungy gems are sure to make you smile, too!

I can't leave out the Cut It Out Templates! I love, love, love cut outs because cut outs are just plain fun, and these templates are no exception! 

Cut It Out Templates

Finally, meet the Loving Layers Templates. I'll let you in on a little secret. One of the reasons I'm such a template addict is because they help me control my obsessive need to layer. That's right. I'm a closet layerer. When the focus of the template is on creating layers, I get to have my cake and eat it, too!

Loving Layers Templates

Now for the really good news...from now until January 31st, everything in the Inspired by You store is 50% off. You could pick up any one of these template packs for only $2.00!!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Happy New Year!

Hope the New Year finds everyone healthy and happy!

So, check it out. I may be a little slow coming to the party, but I've just had my introduction to the world of art journaling, and I gotta tell you, I LIKE IT! Art journaling is just plain fun! Even someone as artistically challenged as myself can put together a decent page using this wonderful technique. I predict a lot more of this style will be creeping into my layouts from now on. It is just so freeing to throw out all of the scrapping "rules" we all adhere to and go unstructured! On that note...

January Bits-N-Pieces at Scraps-N-Pieces are now in the store for a $1.00 each. You don't want to miss them this month! Karen, of Karen Diamond Designs, has outdone herself!

Second Chances is the perfect Art Journaling kit for everyone. No matter if you are a novice or a veteran, you are sure to find what you need in this spectacular kit. Karen lovingly designed each piece with her focus on helping you to start on your own art journaling adventure - and with the hope of ensuring you really enjoy the journey.

A word from Karen on Second Chances...

"As one year ends a new one rolls in starting fresh is on the minds of many. Saying goodbye to all the stresses and pain of the old year and saying a shy hello to the hopes and dreams that may come with the new year. This kit is called Second Chances. No matter who you are we all are given a second chance to make life the way we hope for it to be. This beautiful kit is my first jump into art journaling and I am very proud of the way it turned out. The words art journaling make some people want to run and scream. They just don't think they have an "artsy" enough personality. I am convinced that EVERYONE, especially scrappers have art in their soul. You prove every day with your layouts that you have the love of sharing your memories. Art journaling is a way to let that inner artist out. Each page speaks of your life in a poignant way. The colors, papers and pieces of this kit give you the tools you need to start sharing your journey, the good and the bad. We all have a story to tell and this kit is all about telling it."

Until next time, stay safe and scrap, scrap, scrap!
