  • Wilma4EverForum – Sketch Challenge – Love is in the air

    Well, it is that time of year again.  The stores are packed out with chocolates and flowers, pink and red hearts in every shape size and texture imaginable, and the television is playing an endless loop of jewelry commercials.  I have to say, Valentine’s Day….not a fan. BUT hearts and flowers are expected in February, so my sketch challenge in the W4E Forum fits the mold.  Using the following template, create a layout about someone (or something) that you love.  This does NOT have to be romantic love, so feel free to jump outside the box with your subject choice. ( For instance, I love crochet, singing, my Godchildren & my cats….not necessarily in that order)

    February 2016 Monthly Sketch Challenge with RayesDesign in the Wilma4Ever Forum

    To make the challenge a little easier, you can pick up a free template (PSD, PSPimage & PNG layers included) over at the Wilma4Ever Store.

    Come on by the forum and play along, there are tons of challenges each month to help you get your creative juices flowing AND you can win great prizes 🙂

    Hope to see you in the forum soon and as always…

    Happy Scrappin’ Ya’ll!

  • A White Christmas – Wilma4Ever Blog Train! (Freebie)

    A white Christmas is something we almost never see in my part of the world, where a “epic” snowfall is more than 1/2 an inch and sticks around for more than 24 hours. However, a white Christmas is something I always wish for, because Christmas is the definitive time for miracles. The Wilma4Ever Blog train celebrates the season with the muted color palette of snow in the pines. My part includes 5 journal cards which you can also use for gift tags or quick photo cards. I hope you enjoy your trip through this winter wonderland. Click on the image to download.

    We are all on different time zones, so if someone doesn’t have their part up yet, please check back later.

  • P4DSDesignz Forum – Snag & Design Challenge – Cherry Blossoms

    It’s time for our second Snag & Design Challenge over at the P4DSDesignz Forum. This challenge is a combination of a mini blog hop and a layout challenge presented by three designers from the P4DSDesignz store. This month’s challenge, “Cherry Blossoms”, is hosted by Lori from P4DSDesignz. Here’s a quick overview of how this works. Each of the 3 designers will offer a “snag” kit on their blog consisting of 1 paper and 4 elements. Round up the three snag kits, then head over to the P4DSDesignz Forum for the challenge specifics. Each of the designers has also created a coordinated mini kit. For your participation, you will receive links to download all three kits.

    Here is my portion of the participation prize. You’ll find the links to my SNAG kit as well as the other designer’s blogs below the image.
