CT Spotlight of the Week

Hi All! It's Bren here..CT Leader for Misty. I have decided to spotlight a very special CT member each week to show our appreciation for all the hard work that they do every day to promote Misty's designs. Each week, I will chose one CT Layout that I think stands out and I will recognize the CT Member that designed the layout.  And I am pleased to announce that this week's CT Spotlight of the Week goes to Drica for her layout....Making VCards. I love the way she blended the photo for the background and also for the cute way she framed the photo....
She used Misty's kit...My Life {Project 365} February which will be released on February 2 at Funky Playground Designs.

Make sure you stop by Drica's gallery and leave her some much deserved love! Way to go Drica!


LOTM for January

It is the end of the month so you know what that means. It is time for LOTM. It is always such a tough choice and I thought long and hard. This month I chose a beautiful LO by crazsquaw. She is actually on Misty's CT and always does fantastic work. I asked her a few questions so we could all get to know her a little better.

1) How long have you been digi-scrapping?
For almost 8 years.

2) Have you ever paper scrapped before?
Yes, I have been scrap booking for over 20 years. I also used to work at a craft store and I was the Dept. Head of the rubber stamp and scrapbook dept.

3) What is your favorite element to scrap with?
Greenery. You can add so much to a page with a little bit of leaves, limbs and/or flowers.

4) What are your favorite challenges to do in the forums?
Ones that make me think outside the box-but I love all of the challenges because they inspire me and give me great ideas!

Are you ready for the big reveal? Here is her awesome LO. I just loved the vintage feel and the selective coloring and the quote the whole just came together so nicely. She used Misty's Lola kit.

So I hope you all have a fantastic February and we will be back with another LOTM at the end of February.


Layout of the Day

Good morning peeps!

This is Becki and I hope you are having an awesome middle of the week-today's my Monday, so I'll let you know how that goes, LOL!

I'm here today to show off the LOTD-I chose this page by akhn for several reasons. I love that it is a 2-pager, I love the simplicity of it and the journaling. I also love the date stamps she put on the corners of the frames!

I think this page ROCKS and deserves to be shown off...how about you all go and give her some love too?



Serious Case of the Mondays?

The title says it all. What do you do when you are feeling allergic and just flat out icky? I personally like to look at things that are pretty, SPARKLY, and preferably something Disney. I looooooooove Misty's "Just Married" kit. It reminds me of Cinderella and Prince Charming, of my wedding day, and of happier non-monday- days. :-)

And with a price of only $2.99, what reason could you possibly have for not scurrying over RIGHT NOW and buying it? If only to just look at it. :-)

I used this kit to do a scrapbook page for my mom for what would have been her 30th anniversary.  The boy and girl in it even look like my parents- and Cinderella is her favorite character ever. So here's my layout:

Well how about that...after this post I already feel better! I hope you are having a most lovely Monday (is that possible?!) If you have a particularly happy and pretty (Sparkly!) layout, would you pretty please link to it in a comment?? I would LOVE to see it!


Random Wednesday & a Freebie!

Happy Wednesday everyone-this is Becki aka crazsquaw, today is my Monday-so you know what that means, back to the real world and my digiscrapping is put on the back burner for the day. Oh how I would love to be able to stay at home and craft and scrap away to my hearts content...but my life doesn't allow that. Woe is me, LOL

Did you see the new and fabulous kit out today? It is called p365-My Life, January and it is a whole lotta fun! This is one of those kits with many uses (not just for the month of January!), and I can see myself using it over and over! Here is a preview:


                                                     This kit will be 25% off through Sunday.

                   There also are a few other kits Misty has in the shoppe that coordinate with the new one:

                                          My Life: {Project 365} Glitter Sunburst Paper Pack

                                                     Everyday Button Flair - Studio 365

                                                   Everyday Glitter Styles & Sheets - CU

OK, now to the freebie! I have created a clustered frame for you all from the new kit...I hope you like it!

Just click on the picture and it will open up to it's own window in a .png :)  Please lemme know if you have any problems! Also-please do not share the freebie, send them here to Misty's blog to grab it themselves, thanks!
Have an amazing rest of the week, see you at the Playground!!


Oldie but Goodie

Happy monday!!! Wendy here to bring you all a special post for a very special kit of Misty O'Brien:"Mardy Party", for me is special because I won it in a little contest of Misty at DST before I was one of her CT member and I use it to do a LO of my dad and I want to share it in a QP with all of you.

Everyday Happenings

Hi!  I hope everyone had a great holiday!  Mine was busy but I'm glad to get back into a routine.  I didn't have much time to scrap during the holidays so I'm back on track now!! 

I wanted to show off one of Misty's older kits today.  Everyday Happenings!  This is one of my favorite kits!  If I'm ever stuck, I pull out this kit!!  Here's the preview.

Here is the layout I made with this for the Template Challenge at Funky Playground Designs.

Well, that's all for now!  I hope to see some layouts in the gallery using this fabulous kit!!  
Have a great week!!



New Releases - January 7th!

Happy New Year!

 I am participating in Project 365 again this year. Last year, I didn't even last a month so I am hoping to really stay committed in 2011. If you're interested in tracking my blog progress, you can head over to 365 O'Brien Moments for all the news.

In the meantime, I have been designing up a storm! I have 3 products releasing today, and two of them are CU OK. (All images are clickable)

The first is a set of Love Doodles. All of them were hand drawn by myself in Illustrator and they are saved as .png files. There are a total of 16 doodles and a bonus heart brush (.abr file) included.

I'm also starting a line of P365 items called My Life: {Project 365). The first item available is a set of Glitter Sunburst Papers. My creative team did a fantastic job of showing you how easy it is to incorporate them into almost any layout. They're versatile!

Credits clockwise from top left: LO by amieN using Glitter Sunburst Papers and CU Glitter Spray, LO by crazsquaw using Glitter Sunburst Papers and soon to be released Let Them Eat Cake, LO by gracelike rain using Glitter Sunburst Papers and soon to be released Let Them Eat Cake, and LO by Sonshinekate using Glitter Sunburst Papers and Behind the Lens Collab with Girl Boy Girl Designs

and lastly, I put my CU Glitter Sprays in the store for anyone who missed them as a freebie during the Funky Days of December promo on the FPD blog last month. There is a newly included glitter brush that was not in the freebie download. The sprays and brush are both CU OK.

Here's a sneak peek of one of my new releases next Friday, Jan 14th. It's part of the FPD January Playgroup



Layout of the Day!!

The winner is Astrid (aka AnikA), who posted this layout entitled "A Day to Remember" which uses the bestselling Tweet Tweet kit. Click on the layout for the full credits and to leave Astrid some love. And check out her gallery. It's beautiful!

I love the use of the striped paper as a background, the vertical placement of the elements and the little details like the stitching. Beautiful layout, Astrid! Let's find out a little more about her, shall we?

Where do you live?
I live in Ingolstadt, Germany.

When did you start scrapping?
I scrap since March ´08. A friend of mine started scrapping and after a while I tried it and was addicted.

What inspires you?
It´s nothing special which inspire me. Sometimes I see an element or paper of a kit and have an idea. Or I have a photo and know which kit is perfect for it. And I see many lo´s where I like the style and try to do it.

Thanks, Astrid. With her spotlight of the day win, Astrid also gets a gift certificate to Misty's store at FPD. So to everyone else, keep uploading those beautiful layouts to Misty's gallery. And you might be the next winner!

Happy Scrapping!


Oldie but Goodie!

Misty O'Brien's kit "FLIRTATIOUS" is one of my all-time faves!
Oh, who am I kidding- I love all of Misty's kits! :)
Anyways, I love the bright greens/blues with the white/blacks- such a great contrast.
The kit preview picture is linked to her store at Funky Playground Designs.
JUST $5!
