Scrapbook Saturday: First Shell-o-bration

Hello digital scrapbookers! Are you ready for some "Scrapbook Saturday" inspiration? Today designer Melissa Craig has made an adorable "first birthday" page to share with you. Melissa used elements from her "My Memory Suite" program to create the background, including some very fun textures. Textures always catch my eye, and I'm amazed at how much can be done digitally these days. The corrugated background, the wrinkled journal piece, even the look of puffy stickers on the star accents. So fun! For the accent image, Melissa used the February "Digi of the Month" -- "Turtle-riffic Day." Her little Leo sure seems to enjoying his first "shell-o-bration." How precious are those baby pictures?!? There is nothing sweeter than a baby's smile. Thanks, Melissa, for sharing this with us!

My Cup of Tea

Are you a tea drinker? I am. I find that a nice, hot cup of something flavorful plus a little Scripture reading in the morning really helps me to get focused each day. Then if I can follow it up with some creative inspiration or a little crafting, my day is really set to be good. This morning I have a little tea and a little crafty inspiration to share with you, all in one wonderful card. This little lovely was made by designer Jerusha Borden using the "Tea Time" set. Jerusha's cards are always so sweet and encouraging, and this one is no exception. The fun hearts and swirls papers she used accent the image so beautifully, and that wonderful bow...well it just "ties" the whole thing together, doesn't it? ;-)

February Challenge Inspiration Week 1

Here's a little inspiration for our February challenge players. This fetching card was made by designer Denise Goeldner, using the February Digi of the Month -- "Turtle-riffic Day." Everything about this card is so cheerful! Don't you just love how the polka dots in the papers that Denise used echo those on the turtle's shell? And the precious little gem accents? I sure do!

Love You Beary Much

One of the best feelings in the world is to know that you are loved! By God, by family, by just feels so wonderful! Here is a sweet "I love you" card made by designer Zella Turley. Zella used the "Love You Beary Much" set to create this little delight. The browns that she used to color the teddy really pop against the pinks and reds of her background papers. Super cute!

Speaking of love, I wanted to share for those who might have missed my earlier post, that our Valentine's Day/Love/Heart digis are being offered at 50% their regular prices throughout the month of February, including the set that Zella used on today's share. All discounted sets are appropriately marked in the shop, and the reduced prices will automatically be calculated in your cart, so there's no need to do anything special to get the discount.
