I don't know about you, but I'm so bummed to see the summer on its way out. Belgium and Germany doesn't exactly have the greatest weather and I so love the long, warm, sunny days. Putting away the sandals and bringing out the boots totally brings me down, but these new templates brightened my day and I hope they do the same for you.
Thanks to some fabulous Commercial Use products from Wishing Well Creations and GS Creations, I could make some really fun, large shaped templates for you. I had such a great time designing these, that I made an extra one.
Keep reading to see how I and my fabulous team used the templates and check out my, off the page idea with them as well. It's in the form of a freebie.
Goodies from the Sweet Shoppe.
We've got two packs of planner/notebook themed templates and I designed another pack that will be hitting the shop soon.
I may have went a little nuts with my next page. In Belgium, scooters are used a lot. My hubs has one and I used to ride around one as well. I've got my eyes out for an electric model for in the near future. I used Paty Greif's kit, Flamingos for my page.
I used Puffy Styles to get this more dimensional look of my scooter. These are recent pictures of silly ole me in our visit to Beilstein, Germany. It's only a few minutes away from our place, but we never stopped there. Boy, was it worth the trip. It's tiny, but beautiful and there is a ruin of a castle at the top of the mountain (that you have to climb) with a look out tower and a restaurant where I could most pleasantly indulge in a Paulaner from the tap. Mmmmm...
That's me enjoying the hike back down the mountain after a liter of beer. Hehehe...
If this collection looks familiar it's our collaboration, Adventure Awaits with Made By Keuntje and Throwing Some Scraps Around. There you can see the castle ruins, stunning views and the hubs and I. The airplane is all mine. Whoo hoo! I simply added an outline and a few basic shapes over the cooking cutter shaped airplane in PSE. I thought with the map background and map design on the plane, it kind of blended nicely. You might choose to decrease the size of the plane and increase the size of the notebook with pictures.
The suitcases are also all mine. I'm ok with the results. To make the funky beetle a little more Cherry, I added the roof rack and suitcases. I used On The Road from Kim Cameron Designs. That's my oldest and his best friend on the way to the south of France a few years ago.
You can move the word art all around your page and change up the colors and outlines with patterns or whatever you choose. I kept it all separate for the most versatility for you.
Most talented Cindi played with our templates. She used goodies from Just Because Studio. You can find them at Gingerscraps.
Jarmila turned the template into a more, classic look. Simplette's goodies shown here.
I just love the school twist Hilary gave her page with the template using goodies from Meagan's Creations at the Sweet Shoppe.
Rachelle from Bits N' Pieces used a cute kit, too.
Tia gave it a more traditional twist. Can't ya just feel the paper? Melissa Lerin's kit, Kenya.
Tammy worked her magic with goodies from the Sweet Shoppe.
Let's just say this is a sneak peek of something coming from us, very soon. Theresa scrapped it up.
Ngoc is showing off Amanda Yi's and Wendy P, Around the world. Most appropriate a match!
This is my last page and I wanted to show you another idea for these templates. Since the shapes are so large and kind of the feature, you could manipulate them singularly and make your own Personal Use elements for your pages.
I used Aimee Harrison's beautiful collection Tree of Life. You can grab it at Gingerscraps.
I simply scaled down the globe and fit on this 3x4 journal card. I wanted to play with the concept of actually using the template for the flowers and leaves. Tammy used actual flower and leaf elements on her page, way up there. She also changed up the journaling. Just think how beautiful your globe will be!
I hope you'll take advantage of the special price for these FIVE templates. It's discounted for one week only.
