New Product for 3-24-2011- Jiffy Easy Page Album: Easterly

New fun little Easter Jiffy Album this week. What's different about a jiffy album you ask?  Well...let me tell you.. it's a PSD file and you can move all the stuff around. So it's like getting a little collection all pre-arranged for you. A flattened PNG file also comes with it for folks who can't use PSD files. Hope you like it and have fun with it.

Digital Scrapbooking JIFFY Easy Page Album: 12 x12 - Easterly
You can mix and match things or add other embellishments to the pages. It's FUN, it's kinda COOL and best of all it's FAST.  Here are some layouts using this little album:

Hope you have a great weekend!

New Products for the Week of 3-10-11

And some layouts for inspiration:

Sudanese Heritage
I found this photo on Vintage Obscura, loving those old photos. It reminded me that we should also not forget to scrap about our heritage. Even if you don't have a photo, the web is full of great free photos and you can just talk about where your family comes from. My family is from Spain, but I just couldn't pass up this photo for the sample.
Smile Baby!
This is my sweet Wes. One of the girls said..Is that Wes? He doesn't look like a baby anymore. I told her "I KNOW!, I have to hurry home to see him before he graduates high"

Luckily I will get to visit him in April..waaaaayyyy before he graduates. He's just 2 1/2. I love his curly hair, he get sit from his Mama. What a little doll.

Digital Scrapbooking JIF 6: Natural Beauty

Also this week is a new JIF 6 Kit alled Natural Beauty. If you are wondering what  JIF 6 is, well I can tell you. We call them JIF kits. That means Just Insert Foto, because our designers have done the layout for you. Yes, each kit includes a full layout, you just add a photo, some journaling if you want. Each kit includes six items which are in a complete, ready-to-go, PSD layout file. Open the file, and JUST INSERT FOTOS!

The drawing for the paper was from a photograph Jeroen took of a wild orchid in Greece. It's called a pyramidalis. I hope to get to sketch more of his beautiful nature shots.

Here are 2 layout versions from this little kit:
My beautiful niece Lilly
My Sweet Lilly (Wes' twin sister) I think I have used this photo a couple of times, but I just love it, you will have to forgive me.
Little Angel Baily Marie
This is Miss Baily Marie, she is also part of my family. She looks like a cherub to me..such a pretty girl. I haven't got to meet her yet, but her Daddy and Grandpa make sure I get pictures of her.

Well that is all for this week! I am trying to work on some new Easter things and playing with some new ideas I hope you will find until next time...

Happy scrapping!

Digital Scrapbooking layouts for inspiration:

 Photo by Shauna Du Bois of Two Chics Photography 

This layout of Lilly and Wes was changed to black and white to work better with the papers, however I have to tell you the color version reveals a lot. Lilly's nose is red from crying. Seems Little Miss Photogenic wasn't feeling so happy about having to pose on this day. Jessica said they were very lucky to get this shot.
Lucky indeed! It turned out really beautiful. With Lilly's arm around her brother Wes, this will truly be a photo to cherish. I am thinking all too soon it may be harder to get them so sweet! But who knows, they are twins and twins do have a special bond. We can only hope.

This is a gorgeous photo of the interior of the Belle Island Aquarium in Detroit Michigan circa 1920.

The viewing windows looked empty in the original and I couldn't help myself ...I had to add some fish.

The "Be Who You Are" layout has a great quote from the infamous Dr. Seuss:

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."Dr. Seuss
