Scrappy Sunday

I have A LOT of catching up to do with my digi posts, so this will be a good start...

I'll start with my favorite project - this adorable Holiday Onesie gift set using Libby's new kit Have Yourself a Maui Little Christmas. Isn't it cute?? Libby released another holiday kit a few weeks ago, Cotton-Headed Ninny Muggins (I swear, Libby comes up with the BEST kit names!!!), which I used to create this next LO. This LO features one of my all-time favorite picture of my son, Dean. Dean was due Christmas Day 2006 but fortunately for me (because I don't think I could survive any more belly!!!) he decided to come a few weeks early. He was about 10 days old when we took this picture: (and yes, I'm channeling Fred Costanza in this LO - I'm curious how many of you get it???)I also used Cotton-Headed Ninny Muggins to make this cute little bit of home awesome MIL cut these letters out of scrap pine and I used white acrylic paint, digi papers and some physical embellies to fancy them up. I think they turned out super cute!!!Krystal Hartley's newest kit, Feelin' Frosty, released Thursday this past week and it was perfect for scrapping those pics of the Maui Snow I shared with you guys last week (my Verve project here motivated me to get those pics scrapped!!!). I added Krystal's Cover Girl alpha to the LO as well.One of my favorite new releases at the Digichick last week was Nathy's (Cinnamon Designs) Winter Wonderland Kit, which comes with this free quick album perfectly sized to fit a Cosmo Cricket Abby Blackboard Album. It turned out SOOO stinkin' cute!! And it was perfect Grandmother's birthday was Friday, so she received this cute little keepsake just in time to set out with her holiday decorations this year!!This next LO uses a few other new releases from the Digichick - Kelleigh Ratzlaff's A Little Warped template set and Happiness is by Lia Designs & Kaye Winiecki. I may have mentioned that I'm making a photobook for my BFF Brandi for Christmas. I had hoped to be finished with it by now, but I'm not. So you'll be seeing lots of adorable Balin (her son) pictures the next few weeks!!

The first page is the cover page of Brandi's photobook. Aren't the Fowlers such a gorgeous family? You almost want to hate them! For this page I used the Going in Circles template by Sya's Blueprints and Tomboy Princess by Libby. The alpha is by Katie Pertiet (Designer Digitals) and the staples are from Ghouls just wanna have Fun by Libby.The next several pages are actually meant to be 2-page spreads, but of course blogger hates me and won't let me line them up that way, so you'll just have to use your imagination!!!

These 2 pages use the Triple Threat templates by Sya's Blueprints and Under Construction by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe).And finally, these last two pages also use a set of templates by Sya's Blueprints - Dynamic Duo Set #3 this time. Most of the LO is from Ragtag Cowboy by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe) but I also threw in Libby's Tattered Cardstock, a staple from East Coast Girls, stitching from Southern Girls, and the frames are from All Worn Out Overlays by Penny's Miscellany (all available at the Sweet Shoppe).

OK, sorry for such a long post, but it's been awhile since I posted any digi stuff....I hope you enjoyed it. I know a lot of my blog readers don't do digi...keep in mind that you can still CASE my ideas or use my color combinations or other design elements on a traditional scrapbook page or other project. If any of my creations have inspired you in any way, I'd love to hear about it and see what you've created!!

Happy Festivus, Jen! Adobable picture of Dean. I think I've seen every Seinfeld episode. Enrique even bought me the DVDs a few years ago.

Great layouts! I love the Maui Little Christmas kit.

Holy cow, Jen! You've been busy! All of these are absolutely fabulous. You make me wish I took pictures of more than just cards, so I could scrap a little. :)
