May Scrap Designers Blog Train

Our May blog train is all about celebrating seniors! My son is lucky enough to have four amazing grandparents, who all keep pretty active, and I have lots of pictures of everyone to scrap!

Whether you are the oldest in the layout or the youngest, it is so rewarding to capture special moments for others.

Stop back on May 5- not only is it Cinco de Mayo and my DH's birthday, it is also iNSD!! So to celebrate I will have a goodie here and one on my Facebook page.

Scrap Designers April Blog Train

I have something a little different for you today for this blog train. The theme was pets, and there is such a wide variety of pets out there! So I created an alpha that you can recolor to match any pet you have (or the pages you create to celebrate them!).


You can download my portion on GOOGLE DRIVE.

A Love For Layout Templates April Blog Train and a Fundraiser Scrapbook Kit

Bloom Where You're Planted Fundraising Scrapbook Kit

My son is fundraising for a Community Service Project. He and four friends are raising money to purchase new clothing items for PADS Lake County, which is an immediate-assistance homeless shelter in our county. You can read more about PADS here. PADS has an urgent need for new basic essentials like tees and sweats; my husband owns an apparel store, so the clothing can be purchased at "cost" and donated- this way, the fundraising group will get the "biggest bang" for their buck!

On their end, they are selling the typical candy bars at school. But I knew I could do something that would help out the cause. Hence my new kit, Bloom Where You're Planted. It is available in my Etsy store at a very special fundraising price of $5.99. ALL the proceeds from the sale of this kit during the month of April will be given to my son's fundraising group to help out. Each purchase of a kit equals 3 tees or a pair of sweats that can be donated to PADS!










Using my new blog train template (see below!):


You can purchase Bloom Where You're Planted in my Etsy store HERE.

Thank you very much for considering helping out my son and his friends, and PADS Lake County! 

Truly, Laurel


A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train

I have been on a circle kick lately, judging from my last few template creations. A fantastic Facebook group I belong to gives me lots of inspiration. Most of the layouts are created with good ol' paper and embellishments, and once in a while a layout stands out so much that I am inspired to create my own template for my digital work. Such is the case with this one- Marie Hirst is the talented scrapper who posted the original paper layout. Thank you, Marie!

Pixel Scrapper April Blog Train

As a literature teacher, I am all about books, so I was very excited when the theme for this month's blog train was announced! Give me a mug of coffee and a good book any day...


You can download my part from GOOGLE DRIVE.

Stop by Pixel Scrapper to pick up the rest of the pieces. Drop us a line while you are there to say thank you to the wonderful designers who put this blog train out for FREE every month!

My Facebook Fan Freebie this month coordinates with this blog train. I had to make some journal cards that were reminiscent of the end papers in antique books.


Stop by next Saturday for the "A Love For Layout Templates" blog train!
Happy Easter! Happy Passover! Happy April Fool's! And Happy Scrapping!

Scrap Designers March Blog Train

My apologies for this being delayed a few hours- last night was opening night for my son's school musical. Which is the perfect lead-in for the blog train, because it is all about music! With a child who is a singer/actor/dancer, I have an affinity for kits that show off the fine arts.


You can download my part from Google Drive HERE.

And the rest of the blog train participants are here:

I also have a coordinating freebie on my Facebook page.


This blog train coordinates with my newest kit, For the Love of Music, which will be available soon. Be on the lookout for a post about it and a new freebie!

Happy scrapping!
