A few pretties~

First of all, we had a speed scrap today at BabyAndMe forums (which you frequently hear me refer to as BAM). We were to use white as a background color, and a lot of journaling, and try to use just one color other than neutrals. I used two, but she said at one point that green could count as a neutral, so I guess I'm safe. *lol* Anyway, here's my page:

kit - Tracie Stroud's "Snips and Snails" (LOVE this kit)
glitter - BCC1 Glitter Styles by Kimi's Kreations (still available on this blog!)
font - My Own Topher
So, I actually have done quite a bit more than just this one layout in the past couple of days, but I can't post most of it. I have some free photobook credits at Artscow, so I made a lovely little photobook for my sister of her seven darling children. Since they're not my kids I probably shouldn't post them publicly. ;) BUT, one of the layouts used quite a few pictures, and became Template 35!

Additionally, another mommy on the forum asked about my "alpha" used in this layout, and I had whipped up a real alpha for her before I noticed that she asked if I could make it in pink. *lol* So you get THREE freebies today -- two "My Own Topher" alphas and a template!

Topher's Tangerine and TwinkleTopher Alphas
These alphas both use the font "My Own Topher" from Kevin & Amanda. The glitter is from my BAM Color Challenge #1 glitter pack. Simple, but effective. ;) I'm loving this font lately. (Incidentally, if you haven't picked up the glitter yet, you can find it by clicking the "glitter" tag to your right.)

Template 35
This template is a doozy! It's a very versatile two-page, 50-square template, just a little wonky. You can fill all the squares with pictures, or just a few smatterings of pictures among squares of pretty papers. You can turn a few squares off for a "window" to your lovely elements or title work. In the preview, I have turned off a few of the squares layers, but they are all included in the PSD for your toggling pleasure. ;)
6/11/09 - This template has been updated and now includes both the original PSD and new PNG files.

...But wait! Don't forget to come back tomorrow~ Late tomorrow evening, the BAM Blogtrain for Color Challenge #2 will be leaving the station! I'll be posting a minikit for you -- with glitter styles, an alpha, and an addon to follow over the next few days! PLUS, you'll get links to all of the other awesome designers at BAM, including a few who were not included in the last blog train! Woot wooooot! See you then!

  6. Wow, what a fun template! Kind of reminds me of the scraplift I did, but I don't think I can turn that one into a template because of how closely I lifted the LO. Ah well.
