Some cool new stuff and a FREE template

Hi everybody!
AmyP here!
I love how creative Sarah Bennett is!  She is releasing two really neat products today at ScrapMatters.  Check these out...
I am just itching to get my hands on these templates that are brand new in her shop...

Some of the CT already played with these amazing templates
Here is one by Li...

She used the Storytime collab with the new templates

and one by Katie...

she used a Feels Like Home, a kit (that I love) Sarah gave away on her blog

and also one by Megg

she used Remember Me which is currently being sold in Sarah's Funky Playground Designs Shop

Sarah also has a really neat looking alpha new today also!
Take a look at this...

Here is what Megg did with this awesome alpha
She used it along with the Crazy/Beautiful kit in the FPD shop

and Katie used it to add a sparkly date to her Christmas ornament layout

 with the cute Backyard Friends kit (currently available at FPD)

We have a FREEBIE for you today also!  Our free gift for you today is a template.  The template is based off of a layout done with the Storytime kit that Sarah did as a collaboration with Lil' Digi Bits by Jude, and Stacy's Backdoor Design.

Your free template will be based off this layout I made

 Here is the preview of the template.
Click the above image or right HERE to download from 4shared.  Here is a little peek of a larger view of the template.  If you want to add your own shadows just delete the layer style.


I hope you all enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!  
See you back here and around digi-land!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I know, I'm a few days early. But if you haven't thought about it yet, this post might be perfect for you. I've never been really good at sending out cards or giving people greetings for various holidays, but I've come to realize that some people live and thrive on celebrating EVERY holiday. So maybe you are like me and now you're thinking, great I didn't send any Valentine's Day cards to grandma and grandpa from their most darlingest beautiful grandchildren. Grandparents can NEVER get enough pictures of their grandchildren (in my experience anyway), so I went ahead and made a Valentine's Day Card for you to just pop in your child's photo. And then you can print and send or even just email the image. It is made using Sarah's gorgeous Love You Always kit.

Hybrid Word Box with Storytime

Hi everyone, Jude here to show you a little hybrid project I've been working on. My daughter is just learning to read and has a list of words from school. She was quite taken with the idea of a special box to keep word cards in and I immediately thought of the perfect kit to use to make it!

Storytime is a collab that I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sarah and Stacy on and the rich, bright colours were exactly what I needed for this project :

Kit : Storytime by Designs by Sarah Bennett, Lil' Digi Bits by Jude and Stacy's Back Door Designs
Alpha : Neutral Alpha by Lil' Digi Bits by Jude (painstakingly cut out by me!)
Hybrid Template : 6 x 4 Recipe Box Template by Mari Koegelenberg

And if that's enough to inspire you to try hybrid (and believe me, if I can do it - anyone can!), ScrapMatters is running a Hybrid Boot Camp which starts today! I'm hopefully going to be playing along as I'm kinda making it up right now and hints and tips would be great!
