I've got another big release for the shop this week: a new kit and three new templates. I've got lots of inspiration layouts to share with you (my amazing team has been BUSY!) so we'll get right to it. Just remember, new releases are 30% off until midnight tonight, so if you're looking for a deal, BUY NOW!
My newest kit, Mama Loves You, combines some of my favorite colors (red, orange, and green, with a couple of pops of pink), cork-textured elements, and a subway word art block that I adore. You can purchase it as a full kit, or you can buy it separately (papers and elements).
The Tiny Blocks template gives you space for three photos (the shadowed frames are included in the template), plus space to feature a number of smaller pieces of patterned papers. Add tiny embellishments to the blocks, and finish it off with a large title in the middle and some paper pieces down the side (stitching included).
by Melanie: I love how she substituted the subway word art in place of one of the paper blocks, and just moved the row of tiny blocks to a vertical alignment instead of horizontal.
by Anna: Anna deleted a couple of paper blocks, added some brushwork, and created a great diagonal line to draw your eye from one corner to the other.
The 4 Tags template features four shipping tags with flair accents and space for Instagram-sized photos.
from Aria: I love how Aria used a variety of patterns from the Mama Loves You kit for her tags and placed the cork banner across the entire page.
from Jen H: I love how Jen added the stitching on top of her tags, which use the solid papers from the kit. It adds a great bit of visual interest and I think the result is super-cute!
The Stacked Up template is an 8.5x11 inch layout that can easily be converted to a 12x12 canvas. The following layouts all use the template, and I love seeing how each person has modified it to fit their needs.
by Celeste: Celeste shrank the layers down a bit and rotated the layout for a horizontal orientation before placing it in a lower right-hand position on her page.
by Jen P: Jen switched to a 12x12 size and moved the layers to the left-hand side of her layout. She also blended the gray paper with the wood-patterned paper from my Whiteout kit for her background, and used the subway word art in place of some of the papers. Great touches!
by Becca: Becca paired the Mama Loves You kit with one of the kraft papers from my Neutral Stock paper pack -- the colors and textures look gorgeous together.
by Claudia: I love how she chopped up the word art and used the phrases on the various pieces of paper in the template -- awesome idea!
by Katherine: Kat rotated the design for a horizontal orientation and then loaded on the embellishments -- that's the great thing about templates. You can make them as simple or elaborate as you'd like!
Don't forget about my $Deal product: Tag Team Templates (on sale for $1.00 ending tonight!), and the Pop A Cork alphabet would make a great addition to layouts created with the Mama Loves You kit. In face, they make such a great pair that I'm offering you a coupon code good for 25% off the alphabet; just enter the code corkDHDalpha2012 at checkout. Code expires 7/23/2012.
