Image heavy post ahead folks. Tie yourselves down because Laura is not responsible for what happens when you get blown away by this week's new releases! It's such a gorgeous goodie week! Not one, but two amazing kits out this week, free with purchase specials and a free treat.
Check out the new beautiful goodness from Laura and Captivated Visions! These two ladies have put out this warm, soft, slightly shabby collaboration called Truly Blessed. This colour palette reminds me of a family heirloom quilt that you just want to wrap yourself in. No matter how cold the days become, or how gloomy, we all have something that we can consider a blessing. Why not challenge yourself to come up with some of your blessings and put them on a layout? This week if you buy the kit, you get the overlays free! Now that's a blessing!
The creative team layouts this week had me floored. So gorgeous! I could only choose a few to highlight here, but be sure to check out Laura's gallery at Scrap Orchard so that you can see the others.
I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm pretty sure that most people would agree that if anyone could use about 75% of all the kit's pieces, and pull it off without looking like a hot mess, it's the queen of clusters, Melissa:
I love everything about this layout from Laura. The layered papers, the overlays used, the clustering and the fun photo of her girls.
Olivia's layout is just so pretty and feminine. So many fun clusters of elements with great papers and an amazing black and white photo:
Now, was I saying something about a free treat? Yes, I was, but I'll get to that in a bit. ha!
Onto the other amazing kit. It's been a while since I've seen such a fun and zany kit for kids, but this has got to be the topper. The name? Wait for it.... Boogity Boo! How cute is that? Yes, it is that time of year...the one filled with more candy that we care to imagine, and scary fun. But here's a kit that you can use year round too! And did I mention that there are clusters too, free with the purchase of the kit?
The creative team had a frightening good time with this kit.
I have a friend who's afraid of clowns. Carrie, I think I understand her point of view now. LOL
Don't you love Gemma's photoless layout. Love this cluster!
Hmmm, now was I just trying to trick you or is there an actual treat? Yes there is! Enjoy this little freebie that coordinates with this week's collab, Truly Blessed.
You can get it HERE. Then get to the store and pick up this week's amazing pickings and get to scrapping those blessings of yours, and if you are lucky you can also scrap them while they are in costume.
