Free Digital Paper Pack ~Waves~ {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 56}

I’m having fun going through photos from the road trip we took at the beginning of the summer. Here’s a page with photos of our visit to Martha’s Vineyard, our first trip back to the island together since that fateful camping trip in 1993!

I used the new freebie paper pack ~Waves~, so perfect for summertime beach layouts – I hope you like it :)!

Sharing the Love! {freebie}

Hello fellow scrapbookers! Just popping in to say a BIG THANKS for allowing me to take a much needed break from this site for the past few months :). So many wonderful things have happened since I last posted; including my dad’s retirement, some of my family relocating to a home less than 10 minutes away (from across the country), our new baby girl being born, a trip to England, folks visiting for the holidays and my husband completing his Master’s Degree to name a few… You can see more a more thorough update (plus photos) at my blog, Lovely Lovely Things.

Below is a digital scrapbook page I just whipped up for the fun of it ;).  Now that things are starting to calm down a bit, I can hopefully have more time for scrapbooking! In fact, I have been doing some fun projects lately, so I’d love to share them with you as soon as I get a chance.

Speaking of sharing, I thought I’d pass along this little freebie :). It’s a love themed mini digital scrapbook kit I made last year for sale, but since I am not designing/selling kits these days I can offer it here for free :)! Just click the image below to be taken to an online folder with the three download links. Have fun!

Real Love Mini Kit {and freebie}

Happy Friday everybody! I hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend :)!! I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to Valentine’s Day  – what could be sweeter than a whole day dedicated to LOVE? It is with this in mind that I have put together my new mini kit: Real Love – It is on sale for just $2 right now!

Real Love Mini Kit by Jess Gordon

My inspiration for this kit is a passage from the Bible:

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a (NIV)

You will find these words incorporated into the design of some of the papers in the kit, and of course, most of the elements are meant to communicate a major message of LOVE :)! Although you can’t miss the bold pinks and lavender colors here, you will also find plenty of neutrals too – for those non-girly pages ;).

And of course I have a little freebie for you to coordinate with this kit! Enjoy :)!!

More Christmas-y Freebies :)

Not much time for posting tonight – but I did want to send another freebie your way! These templates coordinate with Christmas Heart, and even have a few real elements in there too :)! I loved these quick pages I made for Doris Castle (with her GORGEOUS kit, Snow Drift) so much that I decided to make a template set from them, to put in the store – but I ran out of time, so here are the two I did finish. Enjoy!

CRD Block Party, Sale and Freebie!

Have you been over to Christina Renee’s site lately? For the month of October, she is throwing a fabulous block party with products from over 20 designers – I’m just blown away with everything these talented ladies have in the store!! Each week there will be a new release so there is even more to come. I am so happy to be joining in on the fun this week too – for this new release I have created six 12″x12″ digital quick pages, using tons of Christina Renee’s classic designs.  I also made a set of hybrid cards, inspired by some cards I’ve made with CRD designs in the past. Christina has a totally unique style, which I find really inspiring and it has been a blast teaming up with her to bring you these new products!

Here are the quick pages (Click image to purchase. P.S. they’re on sale for 30% off today):

Here’s a close up of one of the quick pages. I love the time-worn feel of CRD’s designs – they create an instant sense of history and romance to a layout. I wish this preview could show the true detail of the pages, but I just can’t get the low resolution preview images to look as pretty as the full size pages do –  you’ll have to take my word for it, they look much better in real life :)!

Here is the hybrid card set, (Click image to purchase. Also 30% off today):

This is a close-up look of some of the cards I made using the set. I love how fast these come together! They all have a vintage artistic feel to them. They are not too frilly or pretty, so you could give them to a guy too – it’s tough to find creative things to give guys, isn’t it?

This is the card I made for my brother’s birthday this summer, which was what inspired me to make this set. Tip: I used double sided photo paper to print the card on, then I printed a patterned paper on the opposite side, so the inside of the card would look good too. Then I made a hybrid design as the birthday message, and adhered that inside the card. Fun stuff!

Oh, and I just remembered the other super cool thing I wanted to tell you about the Block party at CRD!! If you are in the mood for a digi shopping spree, this is the time to do it – there are two huge collaboration kits up for grabs over there: one is free with a $10 purchase, and if you spend $20 you get BOTH kits for free :)!

Here are the kit previews:

OK, I think that about wraps it up for block party news :). Are you ready for the freebie?

I have had a digital pen and tablet since spring, but I really haven’t had the time or patience to learn how to use them yet. This little owl sketch is one of my first feeble attempts at digital drawing – don’t laugh at me :)! Hopefully I will get much, much better with more practice LOL! There is also a stamp and a pumpkin in there created from some of my photos from previous Octobers.

I hope you have a fall layout or project you can use these with – enjoy!

Shabby Princess Loveliness (and a freebie)!

Shabby Princess had a big new release for the third anniversary of her store recently, and I have LOVED playing with all of her beautiful new products! I can’t believe the Shabby Shoppe has been open for three years already!!!! I still remember loading my shopping cart to the brim when the store first opened (hehe). I’m still thrilled with each new release, and this one was no exception :)!

Full credits for all the projects below can be seen here.

Here are a few digital layouts using the new kits:
Waterfall
Using Damask & Dots (lovely, isn’t it?)

Love This Boy
Using Whisper with a template by Kissed Studio, plus two new Fontologie fonts.

Botanical Gardens
Using Bounce (SO CUTE) plus, you guessed it, another new Fontologie font :)!

But my favorite kit in the new release is TWIRL!!!!! I recently made a faithbook page with this kit (seen here). I also made a super fun hybrid card, but you will have to wait for another post to see that one (coming soon). In the meantime, here are a few more hybrid cards I made recently using some of my other Shabby Princess favorites!

New Home Card
I used the Olivia Kit, and embellished it with some Prima flowers :)!

Thanks Card

This one uses Olivia, Flea Market Chic and a non-digital paper from her Bo Bunny Line. Oh, and Prima flowers, of course :)! The cute oval frame is from Oriental Trading Company – love their scrappin’ stuff!

Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a free template for the card above :).

A Stamped Flower Freebie and Some Pages

I’m working working working away on some new things tonight, but I just have a quick post for you! Here are some pages I’ve made with some of the latest Weeds and Wildflowers stuff!

Chris and I are SO LUCKY to have an AWESOME family heritage scrapbook his mom made for us, with tons of detailed genealogical information from his family’s side (I cherish that book)!!! The other really cool thing is that I have many historical photos of his ancestors in digital format. Believe it or not, the following page is the FIRST one I’ve made using this scrapper’s goldmine :). It was fun to look up all the information for this page and be able to create a visual representation from the family tree :).

7 Generations

The next page might not be as historically important, but it does capture a lot about how I think and what I love! Plus, I wanted to play with some of the newest Weeds and Wildflowers goodies – AND I wanted to show you a page using my new Stamped Flowers freebie :)!

Simple Things

*Click Here For Credits*

How To Tip: I added the flower stamps to the page, recolored them to brown, and changed the their blend mode to Pin Light. This helped them fade into the background a bit.

OK, OK. I know you just want me to get to the freebie, so here it is!!! 100% original digital flower stamps created from photos of the pretty flowers seen in the layout above :)! Have fun with these!
