Template Heaven 005

Right now I'm so tired I can hardly stay awake long enough to write this. It has been an exhausting day at work and when I got home and just needed to upload the file I almost gave up since Media Fire which I usually use didn't work. But here it is... finally, based on one of my absolute favorite layouts.

Template Heaven 004

I used to be so bad at making layouts with more then one photo and these days it seems that it is all I'm making, and even when I only use one photo I still manage to make it look like more. It's funny to look at how my style has changed since I began my scrapping adventure. In the beginning I only used one photo and filled the page with it, these days I'm using lots of photos and keeping them small. I think the real change came after I got layouts printed for the first time and I realized that even if I made the photos smaller, they would still be pretty big - oh and journaling doesn't need to be more then a size 14 at the most, even if it looks pretty small on your screen, it is still very readable.

Another thing that helped me think about my style, is working with templates and speaking of which here's your freebie template this week.

The template this week I made back in March after spending a great day at the beach playing and taking too many photos that I desperately wanted to scrap. I used Mandy by Meryl Bartho, Mandy Page AOP by Meryl Bartho, Kaybutler Page Kit by Meryl Bartho, Stitched With Love Basics by Meryl Bartho & Hang The Alpha - Custom Chipboard by Meryl Bartho

For the second layout I used Brushed On Watercolour by Lauren Bavin, not only for blending the photo but also to blend two backgrounds together. The white one seemed too plain and the purple too much, but the combination of them is just right!
The white paper is from Lovee Grungee Back Pack by Marcee Duggar, there's a word art from Wordee Deluxe Word Art Set 4 by Marcee Duggar and the rest is from Passionfruit Purple Page Kit by Suzanne C Walker

Which just leaves the freebie preview. I hope you'll find it useful

See ya next Monday

Template Heaven 003

It's Monday and you know what that means. A new freebie template!

But before we get to that I wanted to share a bit of music with you. On Danish television there's an ad running at the moment which uses this beautiful song which I kept singing to myself so of course I had to look it up and the full song is even more amazing then just the little part they are using in the ad.

Every word of this song reminds me of every dream I ever had as a child and on hand it makes me kind of sad because I remember all the unfulfilled dreams. On the other it is a beautiful reminder of dreams in general and the courage to follow them. Oh I could listen to this song all day long.

But back to your freebie. The first layout is a brand new one which I just finished this afternoon. I'm slowly, very slowly, coming back to my routine with a layout a day. I used This I Promise by Tina Chambers, This I Promise by Tina Chambers, Heartbeats page kit by Tina Chambers, Stitched With Love Basics by Meryl Bartho & Photoshop and PSE Text Paths Set 3 by Lauren Bavin. The cute boy is of course my friend Susanne's cute son from when we had dinner with them a couple of weeks ago. For this layout I turned the template and moved the photos together to one cluster.

The second layout I made for my swap partner Heather. I used I Wanna Play Too Value Collection by Kim Liddiard & Play All Day Value Collection by Elizabeth Weaver which you might remember from last weeks template. I love the DSP value collections. They are such a great deal.

And here's the template freebie. I would love if you left a comment on my blog if you download. I can see how many download my freebies, but I would love to hear from you as well. It would be nice to know who it is that is stopping by my blog.

And since I've managed to upload a template for you two weeks in a row now I won't hesitate but to promise, that there'll be a new freebie template next Monday.

Sick dog means freebie for you

We were supposed to enjoy a couple of days off work together but like always sometime came up. Our poor doggy got sick Tuesday and he's kept us pretty busy, running back and forward to let him out in the garden, trying to pursued him to drink a little and just in general keeping an eye on him.

Fever and vomiting for such a small dog can be quite exhausting for both dog and owner and we've been forced to stay at home. He seems to be getting better but he still sleeps a lot. Probably dreaming off a cuddle with my husband whenever he gets home again.
We weren't even up this morning before the first work related call came for my husband and within an hour it was ringing so much that he simply ignored it before rushing off to fix whatever the situation was this time. So much for some time together.

At least it gives me some guilt free computer time which is always nice. So this week I've got an extra freebie for you. I used my freebie Template no 2 and a kit I've been working on. Some days I don't think I'll ever finish enough kits to actually apply somewhere as a designer but that's just another thing to fight with when being a perfectionist.

Hopefully somewhere out there in the big world it is Spring so you have photos to use with this. Enjoy!

Template Heaven 002

When I named my last freebie Template no 1 it was with every intention to give you another, but life got in the way, which seems to happen a lot to me. But here it is, finally and like the last time I've already used it - for two different layouts.

The first one is using the new mega Military Mega Kit by DSP Designers. If you have family members in the military or scrap heritage, you'll need this kit.

I don't scrap nearly as many heritage layouts as I would like. I love history and often find myself going too much into details that doesn't refer particularly to my own family but to the events of the time. So making heritage layouts always takes longer for me then any other type of layouts. I constantly want to know more.

The other layout was much easier. It took 15 minutes at the most but I still love it just as much as the other layout. Of course it always helps the scrapping along when you are inspired and have a template to work from. You'll notice that none of my layouts are an exact use of the template. My inspiration came from these two new kits I Wanna Play Too Value Collection by Kim Liddiard & Play All Day Value Collection by Elizabeth Weaver. I love the colors and fantastic playful design of these kits and since I saw them in the store I had this song from Aladdin in my head - A Whole New World, so picking the photos to use wasn't hard at all

So here's the download link for the template. I hope you'll find it useful - and I'll try to be back next Monday with a new template.
