Baker's Dozen Blog Hop

Today the theme for the blog hop is Celebration, and I am Celebrating Autumn.

This page was made with the Bazinga kit, a very summery kit but as I demonstrated HERE with a Halloween page, it is so versatile, you could use it for all sorts of layouts. The orangey tones in the papers and the elements just cried out to be used for Autumn. You can pick the Bazinga kit up for just $4.00 and it is packed with fabulous greatness! I think it is my favorite kit from Shimelle.

The cutesy apples and the word art "AUTUMN" are from the Autumn Art Embellishments Kit.

and the leaves are from another fabulous mini kit which is totally free "The Long and Winding Road Add-on" - a great way to get you started in digi-scrapping.

You can see my previous work with Shimelle Digitals right HERE.

Up for the challenge

Amy challenged us to use this template after Sharon challenged her.

I liked the design, it looked simple to replicate and I let the lovely patterned paper dictate my choice of photographs.

I think this will be a template that I come back to time and time again.

Thanks Amy and Sharon!

This is a fully digital page that I made for Shimelle Digitals CT work.

I wanted to make a halloweeny page and had a flash of inspiration.

THIS kit (the Bazinga kit) from Shimelle is full of summery colours, but I remembered the papers and alphas were orange...perfect for Halloween.

I didn't have any Halloween pictures, so for the purposes of this exercise Google came to my rescue!

The entire kit costs $4 and it so versatile. It is great for summery pictures but also when teamed with other darker colours, great for Autumny pictures too. Secretly, it is my favourite Shimelle Digitals kit!

Check out other ways to use it HERE.

In other Halloween related news...Fiendish Fancies are back! Wahoo!

I'm not into Fondant Fancies really but tried these last year and loved them, the difficulty is just eating one!!! If you like orange flavours give them a try!

Don't forget about the free Halloween journalling spot you can download as a freebie from me HERE. I would be grateful if you used it if you could let me know! I'd love to see it in use!

Halloween is on it's way!

The Details: Shimelle Digitals

Thanks for all the info re: our America trip. We do realise it is a little ambitious so some places will get cut (probably Vegas!) so we have an excuse to go back! It is all money related so we'll just have to see how we get on.

Anyway, how about a bit of scrappy goodness?

above we have the latest page release from the lovely Shimelle. It is aptly called Pretty Page and I barely did a thing to this, just altered the odd bit, threw some pictures in it and about 15 minutes later, hey presto a page.

I adore these quick templates for when you just want to get a story down and get it down quickly. For an 8" x 8" page this has a fair amount of journalling space AND pictures without feeling too cluttered. It is probably my favourite quick template out of the whole range and only 99 CENTS!!!!! WOW!

It is of course available from Two Peas HERE.

Hope you love it!

To go with this page that I blogged the other day I used Shimelle's Bazinga kit (from 2peas in a bucket), used some summery pictures from my Hipstamatic app on the iPhone and wrote a bit about the lovely weather we have had lately. Although today....grey, overcast and raining!

The title is a download from Shimelle's class (available on the forums if you are registered).

It is only a simple page but I wanted to write a bit about the unusually warm summer and the hosepipe ban (which cracks me up, as no doubt we'll be flooded in the winter!!)

Those Lazy Summer Days...

Ahh, whilst I'm totally biased about Shimelle's kits as I'm one of her Baker's Dozen, I'm totally in love with the latest Bazinga kit available from 2peas in a bucket! This is also one of my Liberty Elements templates (8-Oxygen) revisited with such lovely colours.

Recently, I've downloaded the Hipstamatic app for my iphone which basically funky-edits the photos without having to go near photoshop! Seeing as my favourite action there is "vintage", the fact I have about 10 different "films" in my iphone makes my heart sing.

I seem to have it on the "sunny" film a lot when I'm outdoors and just snappy snap all happy summer photos.

Then today, I made this page. And I darned well love it. The colours make me want to go and sit in the sunshine right now...except its 1am and its dark. Damn!

See you all tomorrow in class no doubt??? WAHOOOO!
