Scrap Designers December Blog Train

Does it get chilly where you live? U.S. Midwest winters are notoriously fickle- as the old saying goes for Chicago: If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes! We've already had quite a few frosty days, so this blog train theme hit home for me!


A little inspiration using my template from the ALFLT Blog Train (see previous post!)...


You can download from Google Drive HERE.

Promethean Concepts <<You're here!

Happy holidays to everyone- may whatever you celebrate be full of joy and happiness.

Scrap Designers Blog Train

My apologies in the delay posting this today- life just got the best of me this weekend, and before I knew it I was stuck downtown at a rehearsal with my son late into the night and no laptop!

This month's theme was Farm & Fair; being a city and suburban girl myself, I focused on what I knew- the "Fair" part! I hope you have a few carnival rides to scrap!

September Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

This month's theme was "Cozy Kitchen." To be honest, I only cook because people in my house need to eat. So my kitchen would probably not be considered cozy, by any means. It is more of a work space that happens to also contain a stove, refrigerator, and toaster oven. I CAN cook, but it isn't on my top 10 list of things I ENJOY. So I had to reach outside my box for this one, for sure!

Pixel Scrapper July Blog Train

This month's blog train theme was "Remembrance." Everyone has some lovely parts focusing on various ways to remember loved ones. Jews eat hard-boiled eggs in the first meal after a funeral, hence the eggs in my kit. They are considered a symbol of life, and their circular shape reminds us of the cyclical nature of birth and death. Here is my part:

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!
