The two I am showing you today were both made with the SANTA & FRIENDS kit by Amanda Heimann & Ziggle Designs. You can pick it up at Scrap Orchard.
The template for the CD Holder is by Mari Koegelenberg and you can grab it over at the DIGICHICK.
Next up - an old favorite. This oragami box is one of my favorites to create! It too was made with the SANTA & FRIENDS kit.
And that's it for today! Just a quick little post!

Amanda 2 uses A GRAND NEW DAY by Danielle Engebretson and is available at the DigiChick. The alphabet is from Flergs and is available at Scrapbook Graphics.
This layout uses CONTRADICTION by Gypsy Couture, also available at the DigiChick. The alphabet I believe (but don't quote me) is Jennifer Fox and I believe it was a freebie on her blog.
This last one you have actually already seen already, but here it is again. The kit is new from Amy Stoffel, part of her FLAVORS OF LIFE: FALL collection and is available at Scrap Orchard.
Hopefully I will have more for you soon!! Thanks for stopping by!

Here's what I created for her so far....
This first layout uses her LEMON FUDGE kit! I totally fell in love with this kit...I am going through a grey phase! LOL I am loving grey with pops of color, so don't be too surprised if you see this from me lately!
The word art is by Bethany.
This is a template, I just don't remember who right now. I will edit once I figure it out!
This next one uses a kit called MAMA-RAZZI. New today! Again - loving the grey!! This word art comes with the kit, as well as a few others! Gorgeous colors here!!
I hope to have a couple of more for you soon from Mariska, so be on the look out!! And again, check out the store! It's a great sale!!

Yes - with MOSD products you can make your own storybook! Well, that and in this case, a little help from my friends in the digital world! I will tell you it was VERY EASY.
I used Lorie Davison's A VERY BUSY DAY CHILDREN'S BOOK kit. This is a story written by Stephanie Ralla Salanova and uses Lorie's Digital Graphics. It's actually a kit of Quick Pages. This really means that 90% of the work is done for you! The words are separate...you add the words and your photos to the pages and you have a customized, personalized story book that your child will treasure for a LONG time!
So here we go...
I have used the MOSD 8x8 Acrylic Covers and Chipboard Pages. This will give the book both protection and stability. I joined the pages and covers with "C" Rings (which can be found at your local office supply store) and decorated with ribbons.
These are a few of the pages you will be able to create using this kit - again, they are Quick Pages. Just drag the words (which are also available in a French version) onto your page and add your own photos!
I did, however, create my own back cover using Lorie's DON'T EAT THE WORMS preview kit. I believe this was a freebie on the Scrapbook Graphics Studio Matters blog. Because I didn't use the title page included in the kit - my back cover would have been blank chipboard. So instead, I created a back cover using Don't Eat the Worms and personalized it for my son with the all the credits as well as a dedication at the bottom.
I hope you enjoy these story books and make one of your own! Obviously you can grab a kit like I did, or you can scrap it with paper in your own way, with your own story! Or even tell your child THEIR story - whatever it may be.
Again, I used the 8x8 Coverset and chipboard pages, however, I also printed out several of these pages at 6x6 in size and they were still easy to read - so if you prefer a 6x6 version, MOSD does also offer you the 6x6 option. If you are not doing it with a premade digital kit like I did, any size MOSD album would work to tell your child a story!

Next is a layout about Coffee - or lack there of - and it uses CAFE LATTE by SugarPlum Paperie & Tracie Stroud. Adorable kit! What I forget to say in this layout is I love coffee cups - I just never put coffee in them! LOL
Last, but certainly not least is this one:
This one might be my favorite - it uses SHE GEEK by Shawna Clingerman & Lauren Grier. I don't think you can read the journaling but it talks about how I started digital scrapbooking.
I hope you run over there an check them out! Susan has lots of AWESOME TEMPLATES in the store - so go pick yours up!

These two layouts use two different kits. These kits are bigger than a mini, yet smaller that a regular size kit...
This first layout uses BUTTERSCOTCH KISS and a template from Studio Hillary's new SQUARE PEGS template set.
Next up is a layout using a template by LITABELLS DESIGNS (which isn't released yet, so you're getting a sneak peek) and the kit is PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE.
And that's it for today...you might see at least on more project with this set of Flavors kit...it's just not quite ready yet, so be sure to come back and see it!

This is my most recent project for Shawna - it uses her GUESS WHOOO LOVES YOU kit as well as a template from Lauren Meader.
I was trying to make an owl! My daughter told me it looked like a turkey even before I added the feathers in the back, so...I added the feathers and made it into a turkey! I am thinking it's pretty cute! If you were really ambitious (and I know I'm not) you could make one for each person at your Thanksgiving table!
This next project was made quite a while ago and it is featured in the DST INSIDER this month!!! I am very excited to be published for the first time! This is made using a couple of collabs from Shawna...MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY - with Lauren Grier and BEEP CHUGGA ZOOM with Kristin Cronin-Barrow.
It's a travel set!! Everything fits in the can - with room to spare so you could throw a couple of dry snacks in there too! It will keep the kids occupied as you take the long trip to visit relatives for the holidays!
There are bingo cards - made with templates from Studio Wendy at Scrapbook Graphics.
There are 50 state cards - for the license plate game! I also put the state abbreviation, capital and nickname on mine so they could be used for a learning tool later!
A travel mug - didn't want to leave the adults out!!
And the top of the can is a tic tac toe board - made with bottle caps and by adhering magnets to the bottom of the bottle caps - really easy to do!
So be sure to stop over at SHAWNA'S store - I am sure you will find her designs are AWESOME as I do!!
