Pixel Scrapper December 2014 Blog Train - The Nutcracker

I have to confess...I almost didn't get this done.  I had a few of the elements done but wasn't feeling inspired so I walked away from my computer for what seemed like weeks.  I only started tinkering with it again a few days ago.  I created a few papers and a few more elements and the long lost "inspiration fairy" struck and I just kept going.  Good thing I've been on vacation this past week or this space may still be blank, eek :-) I tried to make a nutcracker by hand and he looked even more creepy than he already is so I replaced him with the owl.  The alpha was created based on an old card I found with pieces of cardboard with glitter and old music sheets glued to the cardboard.  I thought it was cute.  Mine, of course isn't as cute as the one I had seen but it'll do.  I hope you all enjoy my version of the Nutcracker.  

You will find the download link below each image below or if you just want the whole kit including the alpha and journal cards; please use the All In One link at the very end of this post.

Pixel Scrapper October 2014 Blog Train - Autumn Art

My favorite time of the year!!  We don't get the fantastic fall colors here in Florida but I remember growing up in Ohio and seeing the leaves change colors, the winds blew a little cooler at night and by mid October my sister and I would be walking to school, kicking the leaves on the sidewalk as we strolled onward. The memories I have growing up in Akron, OH...those were the best days of my life as a kid.  We lived in what people that reside there called "little Italy".  So many Italians migrated to that area back in the late 1800's and they started families and made North Hill their home.  I have only gone back there a few times since leaving back in 1993 and things have changed so much.  It broke my heart to see how much the old neighborhood had changed.  I guess as with everything else in life, things goes on.

I almost forgot!  I made a few journal cards but I didn't get to finish them.  Maybe leaving a few of them will give you more options to use them.  You can add more elements if you'd like :o)  You can click on each one and "save as" or download all of them HERE.

 The blog is giving me a fit this morning.  I wasn't able to get the images side by side...grrr.  Enjoy!

Pixel Scrapper September 2014 Blog Train - At The Fair

I had fun with this one, even with the pastel colors.  I think I wore out my mouse a bit because it's giving me a fit and not working very good right now.  I made some templates for my roller coaster, food stands, bumper car and ferris wheel.  I have to say I am pretty proud of them considering I haven't really made any new templates in quite a long time after losing everything on my External HD...the motivation just wasn't there.  Maybe this will be the kick I need to get my stash back to where it needs to be plus I am so out of practice it isn't funny.  Well here it is, I hope you can use something to make a fun page!  Check out the rest of the offerings for this train at Pixel Scrapper .  Enjoy!

Pixel Scrapper August 2014 Blogtrain - Garden Party

Hello All!  As summer winds down for a lot of you, it is kicking into full "Hot" mode here in Florida.  We will not feel cooler weather until maybe the end of October (if we're lucky).   You will see a lot of different style kits along this train from flowers, tea cups maybe a picnic basket or two.  I think I was the only one in left field on this one, lol.  I just couldn't get the bugs out of my head.  Perhaps that is because this time of year they are everywhere.  I can't even sit on my front porch once the sun starts to fade, I get dive-bombed by those June bug beetle things.  I have had a fear of those since I was a kid so you can just image what my neighbors must think when they see me outside jumping around, my arms flailing, head shaking back and forth so anything that may possibly be stuck in my hair will fly out.  I hate those things!  I know hate is a strong word but I can tolerate nearly any other bug, but these beetles....NO WAY!

I hope you can find use for these little bugs in your pages.  Don't forget to visit Pixel Scrapper to see the preview of all other participants and gain links to their goodies.

Pixel Scrapper July 2014 Blog Train - Designer's Choice

This month it was Designer's choice!  We had the color palette but the theme was wide open!  You are sure to find what you need for your pages!  I started with a patriotic theme but switched things up and went nautical. There's still a few stars and stripes in here :o)  Enjoy!

Pixel Scrapper June 2014 Blogtrain - Oh Baby, Baby

I can't believe it's June already!  Although June is best known for weddings, our blogtrain is all about the babies!  There had to be a lot of us born in June.  My birthday is in June along with several other family members and's a little scary when you get that many Gemini's together in the same room, lol.

Here is my take on this months theme, hope you like.  The link below includes both parts so you can mix and match if you'd like.  Have fun.

Pixel Scrapper May 2014 Blog Train - Hello

It's time for a new blog train!  This was a fun kit to put together.  It's been awhile since I made bragbook pages, does anyone still use them?  What size do you prefer 6x4 or 7x5?  Do you prefer another size?  Leave a comment with your preference and I will see about getting those done for you.
Happy Scrappin'!

Pixel Scrapper April 2014 Blog Train - Earth Day

I'm late!!  I've had a busy March and wasn't sure I would be able to finish the kit in it's entirety but I did it!  I got a little carried away again.  Before I went on vacation I did a few practice runs on making my own masking tape (with the help of texture) they don't look too bad :o)

Pixel Scrapper March 2014 Blog Train-Country Wedding

I was pretty excited to do this month's blog train.  I love the colors and the theme.  I found myself very short on time and didn't get to do everything I really wanted to do.  I managed to get a few elements together and with all the great participants, you will definitely have enough to create a spectacular page!

Pixel Scrapper February 2014 Blogtrain - "Be Mine"

Can you believe it's February....already!  When I started designing scrapkits several years ago, one of my favorite things to create was for Valentines Day.  I loved working with the hearts and pretty much anything red!  This year I couldn't get inspired.  I don't think it's for lack of inspiration around me because it's everywhere.  I'm thinking it's because my mind just hasn't caught up with "real time".  I was still working on a Christmas kit and the next thing I knew it was the end of January.  Good Grief.  Hope everyone has a great February!  Enjoy!

You MUST stop by  to see what the community has put together for this train, it's huge!

Oh....see almost forgot it again!  If you were looking for the wordart from January's kit, the link has been added to the original post.  I'm blaming it on being overworked, lack of sleep and just pure exhaustion!

Well if you made it this far, there is another little gifty for ya!  I felt inspired (imagine that, lol) to make some journal cards.  I didn't "bedazzle" them as much as I've seen others but they have a little.  I'll leave the rest up to your imagination :o)  You can download them HERE or click each individual image and "save as".
