Tidal Wave Weekend - New Releases and a Freebie!

Hello all! Did you enjoy the first installment of the CT Spotlight and the freebie? I hope you did!

I have some new releases this weekend for Tidal Wave Weekend at Scrapable! I think you'll really enjoy it!

I had sooooo much fun making this new kit. I started Project 365 this year as a way to expand my scrapping skills and to find a way to capture our everyday life much better. I'm so bad at taking pictures of the little things that you never think of, so I figured this would be a way to force myself to think outside the box - coming up with a picture every day is difficult but I've gotten some excellent pictures because of it! I also figured this would be a good way to improve my photography skills before I get my new DSLR in about a month or so (yay tax returns!). And I was right - I have improved a LOT! I'm so excited to see what my photos will turn out like after I start taking them with my new camera. I can't wait to get it!

Anyway I wanted a Project 365/Project 52 kit to scrap my weekly layouts that was as unique as I am. I've found a ton of P365 kits out there that I love, but I wanted something that was totally my style. So I created this HUGE kit!

I'm serious - this kit is HUGE! My computer counted slightly over 300MB when all was said and done. There's 6 packs in all - a set of date elements, a notebook paper alpha, a set of over 100 elements, a set of patterned papers, a set of school papers, and a set of layer styles. I've made it easy and included all elements in one huge bundle available for a VERY low price (pictured above), a kit bundle which includes all papers, the elements (not including date elements) and the alpha, or all in seperate pieces, so you can purchase only the things you want!

Here's all the seperate pieces:

And as I mentioned before, here is the kit bundle:

This kit would be good for ANY kind of layout - there are enough gender-neutral elements that you can scrap both girls and boys, and adults alike. The school papers would be great for those back-to-school layouts also. The date elements make it so easy for you to date your layouts. There are three types of date bits - circle cardboard, circle styrofoam, and square notepaper - in the numbers 0-31, the months, and the days of the week in each one. I've also made a date wheel, which comes either plain, or embellished with either a screwhead center or stapled center. Also in the pack is a set of stamped-styled date strips, one with numbers 1-31 and the other with months. I've included 2 doodled pen markers so you can easily circle dates, in 3 colors - black, red, and blue. Included in the element pack is over 100 elements, some recolored but some unique, including multi- and single-photo frames, ribbon hangers, ric-rac, stitches, buttons, acrylic hearts, flowers, and more. There are 12 patterned papers and 14 school-style papers, which can be used for any style of layout or any season. The notebook paper alpha is lined in silver glitter and backed with corkboard for a very unique look. The layer style pack includes 3 different types of styles - acrylic, glitter, and gel glitter - in 10 colors each, for a total of 30 colors.

Each piece is available at Scrapable seperately or in the two bundles - and this weekend only, you can get every single one of them, including the bundles, for 25% off. I'd suggest grabbing the bundle while you can, because the price is amazing. (Links above are CLICKABLE and will take you to the piece it shows!)

I have a freebie for you today, made by Jaya of JayaPrem's Hangout, and my awesome CT member. This template comes in 2 formats - .PSD and .TIF - and also comes in a flattened .PNG format to use as a sketch. The drop shadows are included but turned off so you can customize if you'd like. This is based off a layout that she made using my Project 365 kit.

I will be back soon with more freebies, and more CT inspiration - they're still hard at work creating beautiful layouts!

Have a wonderful weekend!
