Featured Layouts for the Week of February 24 - March 1st

I don't know about the rest of you, but I generally find myself in a creative slump in February.  One of my favorite ways to re-start my creative mindset is to take a look at some awesome layouts. Here's a quick selection of some uber cool pages created using Celeste's awesome products.

From the Creative Team:

And finally, in the Pixels and Co. Gallery I found this gem by Tiffany Fisher: 

I love the combination of the Jubilee tags and the Pistachio washi tapes!

I hope you find these pages inspiring and that they will help you beat the winter blahs.  Happy Scrapping!

Here's a Trick about Chalkboard

We've been seeing a lot of elements in the digital world made to look like writing on chalkboard. Celeste has a number of very cute chalkboard kits in the shop, like these chalkboard tags, or these noted journalers.

One of my favorites is her chalkboard calendars. But what if you don't want to use the black background (the "chalkboard")? Here's an easy trick for making use of chalkboard elements in other ways.

I used the 2014 chalkboard calendar kit for a small, purse-sized calendar that I make and bind with a jump ring.

It's really easy to use the chalkboard text without the chalkboard, just set the blending mode to lighten:
I wasn't too keen on the text covering the face of my subject, so again, it's quite easy to move the text from its original position, wherever you want it. Using the rectangular marquee tool, select the section you want moved. Hold down the control key (command on a Mac), and then tap the arrow keys on your keyboard to shift the section over. When you're done, release the control key and hit escape. Done!
So now those chalkboard elements just became a whole new kit! Hope you enjoy using Celeste's chalkboard too.

Featured Favorites | La Dee Da

La Dee Da is being featured this Tuesday- Thursday, up to now it has only been available separately, now you can purchase the full kit for a great deal. And, if you snag it while it is featured, you can get the entire kit for just a little more than one of the pieces separately. 

The beautiful papers and elements are a fantastic complement to all your heritage photos or back to school pages. If you need a little inspiration, here are some photos from the Creative Team.

As a bonus, your download will also include the journal cards and brads that were previously offered as a freebie.

New Release | Hello Love

You saw a sneak peek of Hello Love with the release of the Chalkboard Word Art.

Celeste has knocked it out of the park with the rest of this kit. First up is the patterned paper: 

And the Elements and Solids to round out the kit:

Look at the details on these papers!

And if you just have to have it all, here's the whole shebang.

Don't be fooled into thinking that because this has florals and pink that you can't use it for the boys and men in your pages. Take a look at how Bea used it for this sweet little boy:

And sweet and feminine for this little girl:
