Laitha's Designs

When I first saw Laitha's Designs, I fell in love, and have really enjoyed using her kits.  There is that grungy weathered elegance that I think is perfect for scrapbooking!

I used Bohemian Fall on this layout.  There are always outstanding add ons with each collection, and I used the beautiful damask papers and painted papers.  The template is Little Bits Vol 1, recently released by Little Bit Shoppe.

Autumn Dawn and lists challenge

I love the collections that are created by Laitha's Designs, and this one of my recent favorites: Autumn Dawn.  This LO was for one of this month's challenges at the Digichick, the Very Varied Challenge: Lists.  I used the kit, paper borders and painted cardstocks, along with Warm Autumn Wordart by PrelestnayaP Design, and Layered With Love templates Set 8 by Seatrout Scraps.  
 For this second page, I used a template by Little Bit Shoppe from the new Magic Moments Template Collaboration by Seatrout Scraps, Southern Serenity Designs, Little Bit Shoppe and Angelclaud Artroom.  From Laitha's Designs' Autumn Dawn, I used the page kit, painted cardstocks, embossed papers, accent clusters and alpha.
This is one of my favorite recent layouts, although I know it is due in part to that sweet little face.

PrelestnayaP Design templates

Today I have three pages to share, all with templates by PrelestnayaP Design.
This first is her Emphasis on Papers Vol 10, and the brand new Happy Holidays collection by Snips and Snails Designs.  I really like that wood alpha!  Also, I have to say that the Emphasis on Papers colorblocking series are some of my favorite templates!
The next two templates are from the Full of Memories series.  This one is Vol 10, with Words of Love kit, also by PrelestnayaP Design.
And this last page uses Full of Memories templates Vol 14.  The beautiful wintry kit is Home for Christmas by La Belle Vie Designs.

Holiday card challenge

One of the challenges at The Digichick this month is to make a holiday card.  Since we don't celebrate any particular winter holiday, I just make a pretty winter note card.
 The sweet kit I used was Snowflakes by PrelestnayaP Design, and I used a template from Brag It Up by Little Bit Shoppe.

Thanksgiving is our biggest holiday in the year, and we usually write cards to express our thankfulness for each other.  So I made a second card for the challenge to be appropriate for Thanksgiving.
I used Autumn Silhouettes Digital Kit by Paper Garden Projects, and Drop Ins Vol 3 by Little Bit Shoppe.

New Forum Signature

This month we made new forum signatures for one of the great challenges at The Digichick.
I used Learn From the Past page kit and Alpha by Laitha's Designs for mine, and I LOVE it!  The browns are soft and earthy and the elements are so elegant.  I used a template from Mix and Match V. 2: Title Clusters by Angelclaud Artroom.

I did another page with the same collection (Learn From the Past), using the Page KitPrecious TagsEmbossed Papers and Accent Clusters.  Again, I love the way this collection complements my photo!  A mask from Keep Your Memories Photomasks Vol 2 by PrelestnayaP Design really adds sophistication to the photo.  My template, Memories in One Photo Vol 3, is also by PrelestnayaP Design.

Today I want to show three pages I have done with some of Seatrout Scraps kits and templates.
This one is with the beautiful Fields of Gold collaboration by Seatrout Scraps and ScrapArtZ, and Layered With Love templates Set 3, also by Seatrout Scraps.  There are so many great templates in her Layered With Love series!  I used another one of them, from Layered With Love Templates Set 1, for this next page:
This "little guy" page is with a great kit by LJS Digital Design, called Winds of Change.
My last page for today features another kit by Seatrout Scraps, Amazing.  
The journal box in the lower right corner was made with a frame from the Beautiful Fall collection by PrelestnayaP Designs, and the frame on the railroad photo is from her Stamps and Frames Vol 1.  The template is another wonderful one from Southern Serenity Designs, My Life Project April.  I love using these blocked templates!
