New Blog Train Freebies

I just love the fall months. The air turns slightly cooler but it isn't sweater weather yet, the possibilities of a new school year, and the colors of autumn all combine to make this a beautiful time of year.

This month, I have three blog trains for you, plus a new Facebook freebie!

Pixel Scrapper Blog Train: At the Zoo

Some designers chose specific animals, and some chose a general zoo theme. I landed somewhere in-between, and created a few papers and word art for the Reptile House. My son was always fascinated by the Reptile Houses at the Lincoln Park and Milwaukee Zoos, so it is kind-of a little tribute to his obsession from when he was younger.

Don't forget to go to Pixel Scrapper and pick up the rest of the pieces to this great train, and leave some love for the designers!

Scrap Designers Blog Train: Perfect Just the Way You Are

Everyone needs some self-affirmation once in awhile. This mini is the perfect way to scrap those times when you need reminding just how perfect and incredible you are.


A little inspiration, made with my FREE template below:

Visit my Facebook page HERE and click on Fan Freebie to grab it! While you're there, like and follow me- I don't post a whole lot outside of stuff at the beginning of the month (promise!), but you never know what you are missing out on if you don't! 😀

A Love for Layout Templates Blog Train

Last but not least, I have a new template for you as part of the "A Love for Layout Templates" blog train. I, in no way, consider myself a "template" designer, so this is definitely a learning process for me. But I always love to learn new things, and heck, why not have people benefit from them?! 


I have one sample page shown above with my mini kit for the Scrap Designers blog train, and this is an example using my "Back 2 School" collection, available in my Etsy store HERE. 


You can download two different files, depending on your needs, from Google Drive:
PSD & TIF Files
PNG & PAGE Files

If you aren't already part of the AMAZING Facebook group, A Love for Layout Templates, you should join us! There is a ton of fabulous inspiration and great shopping opportunities! Click HERE to join!

I have a really neat new collection in the works- but it will be a little while until I can show it off. Having switched grade levels this year for teaching, I am taking a bit of time to focus on curriculum. But I'll be back next month with a few blog trains! 

Until then, happy scrapping!

New Collection and NEW Blog Train!

So, some sad news this month- my designer friend, Leigh Penrod, decided to retire last month. She and her talents will be missed, but I wish her the best for the future.

That being said, some of the designers from her blog train decided to continue in August. We are calling it the "Scrap Designers Blog Train," and I'm sure you will recognize a few of us!

The theme was "School Rules," and since I was going to work on a school collection anyways, the timing was perfect.

My new collection, "Back 2 School," is HUGE! It has, to start, 40 papers, 93 school elements, 93 generic elements, 12 journal cards, and 14 artsy elements. Then, since I made this kit to fulfill school scrapping needs from Preschool through High School, there also are Grade Level headers, Subject tags, and Extracurriculars tags.

The Back 2 School Collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. To celebrate school (as a teacher, I feel like we should ALWAYS celebrate school!), my entire store is 50% off until (my!) school starts August 21- just use the coupon code SCHOOL17 when checking out!



A closer look at the collection:














The collection coordinates with the August Scrap Designers Blog Train, School Rules. Here is a mini-kit that contains 10 papers and 21 elements.

You can download my part from Google Drive HERE.

The rest of the blog train:

Make sure to check back next month- we are growing in numbers every week with designers who are looking to participate! And if YOU are a designer interested in joining us, you can message me via Facebook and I'll get you added to the group!

I also have a coordinated freebie on my Facebook Fan Freebie page!

You can get it here: Promethean Concepts

Again, the Back 2 School Collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. And don't forget my entire store is 30% off- just use the coupon code SCHOOL17 when checking out!

Happy scrapping!!

Pixel Scrapper August Blog Train

"Good Vibes" is a pretty broad statement, and many designers went in various directions, but I decided a little modern "flower power" was called for with this palette.

I put together a mini page kit for this month- enjoy!


You can download from Google Drive HERE.

Visit Pixel Scrapper for the rest of the train, and don't forget to leave some love for the designers!

Happy scrapping!

New Collection- Just Beachy and Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

I'm wrapping up my posts for this weekend with a new release, "Just Beachy," that coordinates with the July Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, Summer Lovin'.

I absolutely loved the colors this month, so I couldn't pass up the chance to create a beach collection that was sizzling hot. "Just Beachy" has 40 papers, 20 beachy elements, 27 generic elements, 3 journal cards, 6 artsy elements, and 10 flair elements, plus a glittery green alpha!

The Just Beachy collection is available in my Etsy store HERE. To celebrate summer, my entire store is 30% off- just use the coupon code SUMMER17 when checking out!


A closer look at the collection:

Leigh Penrod & Friends Blog Train

My second blog train today is Leigh Penrod & Friends. The theme was "July in the Park," so that left designers with a lot of wiggle room.

My part:

Here is a little inspiration using my free template from the "A Love for Layout Templates" blog train (see previous post!).

A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train

Wow- I didn't even know where to start this month! I have so many things to share with you. My apologies in advance if you follow me on Google and will end up getting multiple emailed blog updates the next day or so... I promise they will all be worth reading, because I have free goodies in each!

I'll start with A Love For Layout Templates. This blog train happens every other month, and so many people have mentioned it is one they look forward to. We have 15 designers participating this time around, which is very exciting! I LOVE using templates, and this blog train is chock full of really neat ones you can put to good use right away!

My template:

I felt like this template needed to be seen "in action" to really get a feel for how it is used, so here is some inspiration!

This one uses my free kit, ConGRADulations, available HERE if you haven't downloaded it yet.

And this one uses my free mini-kit from the Leigh Penrod & Friends Blog Train (which will be my next post!)

The blog train (we are all across the world, so check back if a link isn't up yet!):

Pixel Scrapper June Designer Commercial Use Challenge- Fasteners

I joined in for the Pixel Scrapper Designer Commercial Use Challenge this month- the theme this month was "Fasteners," so we had free reign as long as it is something that attaches things!

The paper clip and striped washi are layered .tif files; and the other three are .png files. Enjoy!
