Layout Insipration

I love GDS’ monthly Mixology.  The designers always rock the color palette and have such creative ways to express the theme of the month.  A Fish Designs has released two template sets: Family Ties Templates 1 and Family Ties Templates 2.  And they are on sale for $1.20 per/pack.  — STM Penny

Here are the previews and a layout that I created.

Family Ties Templates 1 – by A Fish Designs



I also used Maria Designs October Posting bonuses, and Maria Designs – Unforgettable

Family Ties Templates 2 by A Fish Designs

And my layout:


My photos were all landscape, so I rotated the photo layers to the left and moved over the flag cluster.  That’s one thing I love about templates, you can make it your own.


Also created with Connie Prince – Project 2014 – Bountiful Life.


Create these two layouts with Love Letters by Dana’s Footprint Digital Designs.  It’s a wonderful love oriented kit that is perfect for heritage layouts to art journaling pages.  You’ll find it here at GoDigitalScrapbooking.  — STM Penny

Here’s a preview of the kit:


My first layout:

Hi Everyone, pennysan here.  I’ve just created 2 layouts using Maria Designs kit called LOOKING FOR SANTA.  I recently changed the Christmas colors I’m using to decorate the house to blue and silver so now want to scrap some of my Christmas lo’s in those colors too.  This was an amazing kit to do just that!  I only did these two lo’s but have ideas to use this kit for several more lo’s to include snow lo’s as it has snowflakes, I didn’t use the Santa, other reindeer, and also in this fabulous kit. This kit is just loaded with wonderful goodies and it has blue in it!!!  It’s description is:   A soft and sweet Christmas Kit with 14 texturized and decorated papers and 104 assorted embelishments. Create the most awesome pages with this lovely kit!!  Check the kit out here:

Hi, I am Mandy and I had so much fun working with this collab kit. I stayed in the purple color family with my layouts because my daughter loves purple. I am already planning a layout using more of the oranges. I love the versitility of this kit!

Pia here, with a wonderful kit, extra papers, patchwork papers and word art: Sew Sweet by Marie H Designs. It’s perfect if you got any sew related photo, also knitting or crocheteing. But the kit goes perfectly well with any photo as there are papers and elements that are not so sew related. Here below are the linked previews.

Isn’t that just gorgeous!? Here below are my layouts, one sew related, the other not.

ST Penny (aka justpennys) :  I’m feel so fortunate to work with a variety of designers, and Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels’ recent release, Wisdom and Friendship, is just a small taste of what the wonderful designers have to offer here at GDS.

In Wisdom and Friendship by Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels, the owls are the cutest!  Check it out!



Here’s a couple of layouts that I created with Wisdom and Friendship by Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels.

Wonderful papers and elements and if you buy the kit you get the clusters for free, and they are just terrific. There is also a great alpha included. Below are my layouts.
