Personal Scrapping, Photo Layouts and Templates

Personal Scrapping

I've been wanting to get back to doing some more of my own, photo scrapping and never seem to get to it, finding myself doing other, design sort-of-things instead.  So, to help me get back on track for my personal scrapping, I decided I'd apply for a position on a CT (Creative Team).

The tricky part - finding someone who both:
  • (A) designs quality products and
  • (B) is accepting new CT members
That's when I noticed that Inspired by Dominic Designs was looking to add scrappers to her team and, what do you know, Tiffany accepted my application to join (insert smiles here)!

So, in between my designing and offering freebies here, I'll also be displaying the layouts I make, both with the kits of Inspired by Dominic and with others.

Photo Layouts

Here are the 1st two photo layouts I've created in conjunction with being on the CT of Inspired by Dominic Designs.  I used the 'Summer Play Bundle' to create these.

Summer Fun (my son having fun).

Summer of '42 (My mother on the lake shore).


I don't use templates to create my layouts, they are my own designs (with relation to the arrangement of elements, papers and photos) but I know there are a lot of people who like and use templates for their layout creations.  So, if you use templates and would like to have one to mimic one of my layout arrangements, send me an email (my contact information can be found by viewing my 'complete profile') and I'll do my best at creating one for you.

Coming up

Well, that's it for today but I'm hoping to design a mini kit before the end of this month to contribute to KimB's June color challenge at the Scrap Matters forums this month.  After that, I'll be working on a contribution to the DigiScrap Forum Blog Train coming up in August.  It's going to be a boy themed one. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Your layouts are beautiful. I'm thrilled to have you on my team. :)

  2. Oh my! These are lovely! Don't you just love her kits?! I love that I get to work with her too, I can't wait to see what else you create =)

  3. These are lovely, Tiffany was right on accepting you:)

  4. They truly are beautiful! I too haven't heard of sketch templates until a few months ago. I tried one with my Project Life kit since scrapping PL pages are different from scrapping 12x12 LOs. But I haven't tried using 12x12 sketch templates . . . it would really feel foreign for me . . . but I'd try it when the time comes. Thanks so much for sharing your layouts. =)
