New kits and *FREEBIES*!!!!

Good morning scrapland! We got back from vacation and I'm slowly getting caught up on laundry and getting back into the swing of things. Whew! I didn't have access to PSE while I was gone (I SO need a laptop!), so I had to wait until I got home to scrap with all of the releases! Therefore, sit back and relax, this is gonna be a big one!!! :)

Let's start with Scrappy Cocoa. She has a new kit and a new template set out! It's a SWEET summery kit called "Icee Sweet". The kit itself is fabulous, and there are a ton of add-ons (and a bundle)! It's great for scrapping your trips to the ice cream shoppe or your kiddos in the backyard cooling off with popsicles! Or, you can use it for a non-ice cream related layout, as I did! LOL Here are your previews:

The kit:

The templates:

The stamps:

The word bits (on popsicle sticks! how cute!):

The bonus alpha:

And lastly, the bundle, in which you get the page kit and all of the add-ons:

All of these pieces are available in Scrappy Cocoa's store at The Studio (previews are linked). Here is a layout I did with the kit...look, no ice cream in sight! LOL:

Also, Scrappy Cocoa has released the latest set of templates in her Templation series! It's Templation: Edgy and is available in her store at Funky Playground Designs FOR ONLY $1.00 (preview linked).

Aren't they neat?!?! Keep scrolling for some inspiration with these templates, as I used them with two other new release kits from other designers!

Next up is This Little Missy. Her newest release is called "Red, White, & Blue", but it's NOT your traditional patriotic-themed kit!!! The colors are much more muted, making the kit more usable for different types of layouts. There is a "State Pack" add-on, that has silhouettes of all 50 states, too! It was awesome, since we have just driven half-way across the country and back on vacation! LOL In addition to the kit and state pack, she also has a cluster/stacker add-on AND a bundle!! Here are the previews:

The kit:

The states:

The Clusters & Stackers:

And the bundle, which gets you the kit and the add-ons AND saves you $3.00!!:

Red, White & Blue is currently available in This Little Missy's store at Stuff to Scrap (previews linked), so go grab it and start scrapping your summer and road-trip photos! Here is a layout I did with the kit AND one of the Templation: Edgy templates from Scrappy Cocoa:

Last, but not least, is Scrappin' Serenity and her newest kit Day Dreams & Wishes. It's an expansion of STS's June Road Trip, with the addition of the color green. It's a somewhat whimsical kit that you can use to scrap most any photos. She also has a quick page pack available for you. Here are the previews:

The kit:

The quick pages:

Day Dreams & Wishes is available at Scrappin' Serenity's Stuff to Scrap store (previews linked). Here is a layout I did with the kit (I also used another of the Templation: Edgy templates):

You can find a coordinating FREEBIE on Scrappin' Serenity's blog (along with some more eye candy from her and the CT). And to wrap this up, and for staying with me for soooo long, I made my Day Dreams & Wishes layout into a QP for you! Just click the preview for the download! Thanks for reading, and happy scrapping!!!

Lots of new stuff and *FREEBIES*

Whew, it sure is hot here in Texas already! I'm looking forward to my upcoming beach vacation! In anticipation of such vacations, Scrappy Cocoa released a new kit recently that is TONS of fun to play with! The kit is called "Whaley Love You" and it has a super cute nautical theme! Lets get right to the previews!

The kit:

Isn't it cute?!? I love the spouting whale, the little "eyeless" fish and the seahorse paper!

There's also a template set:

And a bonus alpha:

And now for the BIG news...Steph is guesting this month at Funky Playground Designs!!!!! This kit is exclusive to the FPD store (images above are linked) and is currently on sale! So go grab it to have handy for all of your fun water pictures this summer! Here's a layout I did with the kit and one of the templates:

And if you want some more inspiration, check out the Whaley Love You photo album on Facebook 

Next up is the newest release from Scrappin' Serenity. It's called "Yesterday's Memories" and is perfect for those pics you snapped yesterday (or today, or the ones you'll take tomorrow, too!!!)! The bold, bright colors are suitable for many different layouts! Here's a preview of the kit:

I love the little callout tags as you'll see in my layout below! The kit is available at Stuff to Scrap (image is linked) and, if you read this before Wednesday, it's in the $2 Tuesday bin this week (along with a quickpage set)! Here's the layout I did with it:

You can also find coordinating freebies (including an add-on!) by checking out the Scrappin' Serenity blog 

Last up is This Little Missy with her June's TWO template packs! Template Pack 1 and Template Pack 2 - Think BIG are on sale for only $2 each throughout the month! Here are previews of each pack:

I used a template from the Think BIG set in my "Yesterday's Memories" layout above. Here is another layout using a template from that same set:

LOVE that picture! Can't believe my baby has graduated Kindergarten already. *sigh* Anyway...this layout uses This Little Missy's "TXT ME" kit, which is full of bright colors and fun doodles!

Well, I think that's it. OH WAIT!!! LOL I forgot your freebie!! It's a cluster frame using Scrappin' Serenity's Yesterday's Memories. Just click the preview below to go to mediafire for the download. I hope you like it! Stay tuned for more new kits, template sets and LOTS of vacation photos!! Happy Scrapping!
