I’ve been going through a dry spell creativity-wise and time-wise. Things this summer just got a lot more hectic than I ever envisioned! First there was our wonderful family vacation that went from being one week to nearly two weeks long. It was good to get away but we were ready to be home by the end. Then there have been workshops that both my husband and I have needed to attend (still not totally done with those either). Then in the wisdom of the ages that we have we’ve been tackling some much needed home improvement jobs. We’re into week three of painting. Can anyone say TIRED? My kids have been trying but there comes a time that everyone needs a break.
Finally last week I got into the zone and created a new kit called Stars and Stripes. I really like the way it turned out. I started off with Independence Day in mind but then as I worked I realized that I have several scrapping friends and CTM’s that are from other countries. So the kit stayed with the same theme but evolved to be more versatile so that it can be used for many other layouts. Like that layout? It’s using my new kit and a template from Scraps of Ellay’s new template set Start Me Up Templates.
Do you like the new detail previews? DigiOverdose has a new preview action called PreviewIt that makes that part so much easier for me.
My CT got busy creating some wonderful layouts with this kit.
These just blew me away!! I love my CT! If you click on my CT page link above you’ll be able to read their bios and also find links to their blogs. Leave them some love if you drop by because these ladies are fantastic layout artists!
