Memory Keeping … new Digital Project Life and Dollar Days at Pixel & Co.

It’s July! Yay for summer! The kids finally got out of school last week and this is our first full week of summer vacation. We are taking it easy, and enjoying just chilling … with no schedule, no early morning wake-ups, and lots of down time. Life is good.

After a very hectic last few weeks, I am enjoying creating scrapbook pages again. I had not been on my computer much the last week or two and it feels great to open up Photoshop again.

If you are a Digital Project Lifer, then you have to check out the newly released Value Kits. Last week was the darling Enjoy Life Value Kit. This week it is the Good Times kit, on sale, of course. (psst: next week there will be a new Value kit too!) It is so versatile … with a black and white color scheme and chalkboard theme. I used it on this page, mixed with bits and pieces I cut out of Amy Tangerine’s Midnight Edition. I love the look of these two kits mixed together.

I also had the chance to work with a new Amy Tangerine release available at ACDigitals.com. Cut & Paste is now available for us digi girls and it is on sale this week. I’m a huge Amy Tangerine fan!

Happy iNSD Pixel & Co Style … CT Blog Hop

Hello there! If you are a scrapbooker or memory keeper … this is a huge weekend for you right? Sales, blog hops, freebies, games & contests, prizes and challenges … seriously the list of fun activities to participate in is endless. As a digital scrapbooker … I love that my favorite stores go all out on this weekend. My favorite thing about the weekend (besides the awesome sales, duh) is games and challenges!

I’ve got my eye on this fun game … What Color Are You? Take the quiz, find out your “color” and scrap a layout with that color.

What’s your favorite part of iNSD?

At Pixel & Co. there are tons of challenges, games and speed scraps to help you to get involved in the fun.

Here is the truly amazing Bermuda Triangle Collab created by the Pixel & Co Designers. It is all yours, free … just follow along on their blog hop.

Pixel & Co. | April Guest CT

This year, I have become sort of a digi scrapping – challenge addict. I try to limit the number of stores where I participate so things don’t become too overwhelming. I love The Lily Pad’s monthly and weekly challenges. And I love Pixel & Co.’s all new monthly challenges.  Pixel & Co. also offers weekly challenges with their 3 way challenges.

I get so many pages done each month by participating in these challenges. And there are benefits too. Yes, I said it … scrapping with benefits. Total win.

It varies by store but generally you get a % off coupon to go shopping and a chance to be  part of their Creative Team for a month as a guest. So fun. For April … I’m a Guest CT at Pixel & Co.

Here are some of the pages I’ve created while guesting at this fantastic store:
