Freebie Home for Xmas Template plus 2 free kits when you spend $1.99 at CatDesignz

Today I have a freebie template for you – a set of 4 Home for Xmas pages that you can use for stunningly simple Christmas layouts

Home_for_Xmas_Template-_CatDes_-001 As with all my templates you get all the original components to keep as well as the layouts themselves.  This means that you can move and remove elements unlike a quickpage which is mixed and not changeable other than adding in additional elementsHome_for_Xmas_Template-_CatDes_-002 Home_for_Xmas_Template-_CatDes_-003 Home_for_Xmas_Template-_CatDes_-004 (1)

Here’s how they look with pictures in them

Spring Comes Softly

Spring is very late here in Halifax this year after the harshest of winters – we still have daffodils in bloom and its May!  I keep looking at the cherry trees (we are blessed with 6 in our garden) and they are trying so hard but probably won’t be in bloom for another 5 or 6 days yet.

So in the meantime I have a soft and pretty kit to show you along with some matching wordart and beautiful clusters and papers (yes, modest went out the window as I am so delighted with the way these kits came together!)

CatDesignz Summer Stroll Blog Hop, Freebies Galore!

Welcome to CatDesignz Summer Stroll Bloghop,  our bimble through digi scrapland

CatDesignz Summer Stroll Blog Hop – freebies Galore!

We have  a bunch of goodies for you to collect and heaps of inspiration along the way – even a couple of surprise stops ….without giving too much away we have quickpages and papers, overlays and templates so plenty to suit everyone

But  just before we go any further I want to invite you to a party, well a baby shower actually….

The Newest Unroes Baby Shower Invite

My wonderful friends Amanda and Brent Unroe are holding a shower for the adoption of their 5, yes 5, Bulgarian Blessings.  They travel this week to spring their beloved children from their orphanages in Bulgaria and bring them home to their forever family in Ohio.  You Can read about them on Amandas blog and their adoption story on their  God’s Rainbow in our Lives  Adoption Blog

I have kept vigil with them these last few months as they waited for the complex and frustrating legal process to complete so that these these angels can join their family.  And now the countdown is on – this week Ahnja, Keith, Nicholas, Anita and Aleshia will be orphans no more.

I made a kit specially for adoptive families – digi scrap for adoptions can be so hard to find.  Actually you might recognise it prettying up one of Amandas blogs!

Child of my Heart Adoption Kit

You’ll see in my right hand side bar that theres a chip in for the nursing fund for Pleven orphans – thats for the orphanage where little Keith has been imprisoned his whole life (I use the word advisedly as you will see in Amandas adoption blog) Until the Unroe children are home all proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to the Pleven Orpahns nursing fund.

All of the kits you’ll see on this page are available at My Memories and to celebrate our blog hop I have a sweet summer code that you can use in MyMemories store if you want to pick up some kits for your stash

Promise as originally to be a Wedding photobook but it occurred to me it would also be perfect for an engagement or a special anniversary as all the wordarts are about love rather than specific to a wedding day.

Everywhere that you see a grey aperture is the space that your picture drops into in the album

The templates are all fully customisable –  you can move and rearrange the element,resize them or even remove them. Then personalise with your journalling and you’re done!

Some are 20 page, all the ones featured in this post are 22 pages including a front and back cover.

All these previews show the front cover of the photobook – if you want to see all 22 pages simply click on te picture and it will take you through to the full preview in store.  Of course, another feature of the books is that you can re order the pages so if you prefer a different cover to the one I used simply swap the pages around!
