FREE Templates + Matching QPs

It's a new year and I'm hoping to share a bit with you. We are about to begin a remodel project so I will be away from the computer for a couple of months so posted 6 months worth of challenges to keep you busy.

I host an After-the-Fact Challenge at Oh Snap Let's Scrap (, where I give you a template and sometimes a QP for those that cannot use templates, and then you scrap with's called After-the-Fact because you get your gift FIRST then you scrap your page.

There are many templates posted for you to enjoy, here are the current ones...images are linked to download.






All of these, plus many of my old and equally fun templates, can be downloaded at, where you can show us how the templates/QPs inspired you.

School Tags FREEBIE

Made a couple of tags for Bernie's tag challenge, feel free to come and snag them.

Join us HERE and download


OH SNAP! LET'S SCRAP! is officially opened and we are so excited to have a site with no store, just fun and memory sharing. Here you can use any kit you like for your layouts and advertise for any designer you choose, as long as you are active in the forum...not too much to ask. 

I have the honor of starting off the Download-a-Day kits for the first 10 days of February, with LilyBelle Designs and Jan Waite providing beautiful kits for you the rest of the month. Using the the "How Sweet It Is," we each made a kit and broke it down into several daily downloads...I chose a cooking theme...what Will Fay and Jan choose? You'll have to come over to see. Here is a preview of what you can snag at February 1-10 HERE.


 Hope to see you there!


I am starting a NEW CHALLENGE at Oh Snap! Let's Scrap! 

This challenge is going to be ongoing in that each month we will scrap about the previous month, using your style, but focusing on traditional scrapbooking. Since we aren't all "traditional" scrappers, please use whatever format makes you happy, but my templates and examples will be traditional, as that is me. I will post several templates in this section to help give you ideas or for you to use, whatever is best for YOU. Some of you may want to start a 12-month, 2-page layout, where each month you add to it, like a progressive scrap; others may want to do a 1- or 2-page spread each month; and some of us just might want to use a calendar format. The idea is that by next January you will have an entire scrapbook for 2016 finished....not in time for Christmas, but in time for a birthday, mother's day, or father's day gift for your family as the year goes on.
I really want you to put thought into these doesn't matter if you finish during the month or by the end of the year, I just want you to have your year captured to pass on to your family. I will post a gift at the end of each month, just for stopping in, so rather you participate or not, you can snag a gift from me, but, of course, I hope you will join in on capturing our memories!

As long as you are active and participating, you can use kits and advertise for any designer on the web, as long as it is family-friendly. So, for example, you can post your layout, along with a preview of the kit you used and a link to that designer's store. 
Let's make 2016 Memorable!

Here is a sampling of the templates I have ready for you to use HERE.


These are the posting bonuses for  February and March challenges.


So I hope you will stop by our NEW site and join in on the fun while capturing the memories for your family to cherish for many years.

Closing Store Sale

I'm posting this early because it's vacation time and me and hubby are going on a road trip...not sure when we will leave or how long we will be gone, but it's sure to be FUN!

There is a season for all things and having a digital scrapbooking store for me is coming to an end. I will still make things as bonuses for challenges and to give away here and there, but the pressure of so many commitments has run its course for me. I need time for my new craft room and my family.

I will have a sale from September 1 through November 30....come and take advantage of can get a ton of stuff for just a few dollars.
