New Fall Plum Collection + Blog Freebie

Don't you love fall?? I LOVE all the changing colors especially plum, it is one of my very favs of the autumn family of colors. I actually started this collection last year and didn't get to finish before Christmas was upon us. Creeps up huh? LOL Anyway.. I was able to get it finished this year. I really hope you enjoy it.
Plumeria Collection Biggie
Included in the Collection Biggie

 Also New this Week
ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Plumeria
I also made a set of velvety Photoshop Styles, so you could mix and match them for your page titles.
They come in 6 coordinating colors and are edged with a glittering gold.

Layout Inspiration
 All plum fall layout samples were made by Brandy Murry.

On a side note: Most of the photos in the layout samples have been tinted to go well with the plum colors. I used the "Lavender Fields" action that comes with the Magical Photos 2 Action Set.

Here is a sample to show you the difference and how it worked well with Plumeria.

If you want to see more of what this set can do, you can see all the details on the boutique page at Scrap Girls or follow this link: ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Magical Photos 2

 The inspiration colors for this set came from Design Seeds. If you ever need some color inspiration, this is a fantastic site to get it. I love how they take the color combos straight from nature. (And some fantastic photos)

I also have a little Freebie paper for you! 
This was a paper I made and ended up using part of it in a blended mix paper in the collection, but I'm offering it here free to Scrapbooks from the Heart blog readers.

LOL

This week I have a few Halloween goodies for you. I hope that they will be able to help you with your halloween photos and party invites.

Celebrating 7 Years at Scrap Girls

Wow I can't believe 7 years has passed so quickly! I went back a couple of weeks ago and took a look at my first collection for Scrap Girls, I was so excited....Want to see it? It has since retired, but I can see the journey. I remember I used to want to put ribbon on Now I keep the ribbons separate most of the time and let you decide where they go.

The concept was replaced in 2013 with Dinner Party, there is a big difference, ahem....especially in the quality.

Even today, Dinner Party is one of my personal favorites. The look in my layouts as also changed so much. Do you go back and look at your first layouts? You should, it can really make you feel good about all you have learned.

I am so happy to be with the Scrap Girls team and the customers are the best.  Thank you all so much for staying with me through the years.

Here is another layout that will show you what kind of time has past....

My niece and nephew were born in 2008 & this layout shows them from 2008 to 2012 and how they have grown up at Scrap Girls. Today they are even bigger of course and have been my little layout models for some time. They are a great inspiration for many of my kits.

OK on to new stuff!

This week I have a JIFFY Album. I know you are thinking... what in the heck is a JIFFY Album? Well... it's 5 pre-made layouts in layers that you can use as is or move around to customize. This set is for all those lovely digital art pieces you have made and want to show off.
Sketch Books JIFFY Album
 Use them to clip existing layouts, sketches, digital paintings or even just journaling. Here are some layout samples:

Digital Painting of Lilly by Brandy Murry

Sketch by Muhammad Ajwad on Flicker Layout by Me.

Sketch of Wesley by Brandy Murry

This shows off the amazing skills of my 14 yr old niece Emily.
There is also a sale going on on my products until midnight tonight, get 30% off all of my store, plus pick up a free customizable card set free with any purchase!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
