Midnight Kiss bookmark

Hi there, Jen here. Have you been enjoying the holiday so far? I sure have! We took a trip down to California and just got back yesterday. It was a long drive, but so nice to see family. Tonight we'll attend a New Year's party - a holiday tradition in the family. Food, friends, fun - what more could you ask for? Well, a kit to scrap the photos of course!! Did you know that Dani has a New Years kit? It's an older kit, so you might not have seen it, but you can find it in Dani's shop at Scrapbook Bytes. It's called Midnight Kiss - just click on the preview below to be taken right to it. It's even on sale for 50% off right now. Great, right?

I got a new book for Christmas this year and even though I just started reading it, I've already lost my page several times. I decided that what I really need is a bookmark, so I put together a pretty little bookmark today using Midnight Kiss that I will print out on cardstock to use with my new book. I made it at 2 in x 8 in, which I may have to adjust, depending on how it prints. It was so simple though and fun to make - give it a try! I hope you like it. Happy New Year everyone!

Saturdays with Jen: A Holly Jolly Christmas Card

Hi everyone - happy Saturday to you! Have you seen? Dani's new kit Holly Jolly is out at SBB and each piece is just $1! What a steal! The colors are really unique too. For today's blog post, I put together a Holly Jolly Christmas card for you. I deviated a bit from my usual 4x6 folding card and did a 4x8 postcard this time. That's a pretty popular size for Christmas cards (plus I have a lot of 4x8 envelopes from 'Save the Dates' I never got around to sending out - lol). Anyway, I chose to go with the yellow/blue hues of the kit, but there are also reds and greens and golds too! You'll find unique color combinations with a lot of sparkle in this kit. If you like it, you'll find it here in Dani's shop at SBB. Have a great day everyone.

Tip of the Week - iPhoneography

It's Jen and I have to admit it... I have joined the iPhone revolution.  Actually, in my home, we have been all Apple for several years (but not the snobby kind of "all apple" folks, LOL).  With the notable exception of our phones, primarily due to the sorry coverage AT&T has in our area.  Since that is no longer an obstacle, I moved effortlessly from Droid to iPhone this fall.

This has now prompted a serious interest in what is called iPhoneography!  Yep, I can be creative photographically without my dslr *blasphamy*, hehe.

And of course, I will transfer these images into works of Scrap!  What else would I do with them?

All this is to say that I ran across several web stories, blogs, tutorials on this topic and want to share one article with you from  It actually outlines 10 websites that are inspiring for mobile phone photography (not just the iPhone).

Check it out HERE.

Then, shoot some cool pics and scrap them!  Check out Danimoy's Store and gallery for some inspiration!

And we'd love to see what you create!

Saturdays with Jen: Recipe card

Hi Dani fans. I'm going to forgo my usual Saturdays with Jen 1+1=3 today because I made a little recipe card this week that I'd like to share with you instead. I used Dani's kit Cook With Me, a cute little kit perfect for recipe cards and layouts alike. I had a template from CM, and needed to throw together a recipe card for a secret santa gift exchange at work. I made it real quick and it turned out pretty cute I think. The recipe is for cookies that are oh so yummy! Give em a try sometime. If you like the kit, you can find it here in Dani's store at SBB. Happy Saturday everyone.

(Note that the white flower and white trim were from the template and are not part of the kit)

Digicards with Jen: Blooms

Hi there! Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend! I sure did. We had a lovely family dinner and yesterday scavenged for firewood in the snow near Mt. Hood. It's been a nice break from work. Anyhow, have you seen Dani's new kit Blooms? It's a very feminine, very elegant kit with hues of pinks and browns. I thought it would be perfect for a girly kind of digicard, and I decided after making one that it was! I love how this weeks digicard came out. If you love it too, be sure to check out Dani's shop at SBB here and find her kit Blooms. Happy Sunday everyone!

Here's the digicard I made with Blooms, pages 4-1

and pages 2-3

Warm Winter Wishes

Hi there - Jen here. I missed last week so this week I've decided to share another digicard with you. I just couldn't resist using Dani's new kit Cozy Winter. Have you seen this one? Such bold colors that really do make you think of a warm cozy winter day all bundled up. Love it! If you haven't had a chance to check it out, you can find Cozy Winter here in Dani's store at SBB.

As usual, I've split my card into a fold over 8.5 x 5.5 so I'll show you page 4-1 and page 2-3. Hope you like it! The little poem I used can be found at under Winter quotes and poems.

Sneak Peek

Here's a quick little sneak peek of next week's all new kit from Danimoy Designs!! 
You will not want to miss out on this one!!

Hey there Dani fans! Hope you are enjoying Digital Scrapbooking Day (err, weekend)! I sure have been. While today (I mean yesterday, eh em) is Digicard day, I decided to share with you quick my new siggy instead. I used Dani's kit Harvest Delight to make the majority of it (2 elements from theStudio Give Thanks collab) and I love the way it turned out. My old siggy was halloween style, and apparently too big for some sites taste (lol -  I thought it was perfectly reasonable). Anyway, here is my new siggy and Dani's kit Harvest Delight, which you can find in her shop at SBB.

Tip of the Week... DSD Tip!

It's almost time for Digital Scrapbooking Day!  WOOT!  It's an exciting time around digi-land and you will want to be ready for it.  My Tip for this week is to look carefully and really evaluate the product you "can't live without" before you buy or download it.   We can all be swept away in the sea of freebies and sales.  Some of that is really, really good and fun, but some will just leave you with buyer's remorse or a full hard drive, LOL.
So... take some time a few days before the big weekend (like now) and visit the stores you love the most.  Fill you wish lists, then try to stay true to that this weekend.  Also, follow along with all of the fun Blog Trains you will see, but don't download every single piece if you know you will never use it!  And the stuff you do download, get it all organized into folders and "put away" as you go if possible.  If you find the downloading process really slow, consider downloading your items after Sunday when the servers are less busy.  Don't forget them, though, as most stores only give you a few days to download your goodies!

As far as Danimoy Designs goes, you know you will want to visit her stores, right?  Well, head over there now, browse through all of her great products and put your faves in your wish lists.  Then on DSD Weekend, you will be ready to shop... stress free!

Enjoy the great weekend and happy scrapping!

Saturdays with Jen: Forest Camper

Better late than never, that's what I always say. I had this ready this morning, but had a bunch of errands and a doggie grooming appt, so sorry for the late post ladies. Hope you are enjoying the weekend so far!

Today I've got another 1+1=3 for you. I used two kits that are new to me - and just adorable! Happy Camper and Forest. You can find both kits in Dani's store at SBB.

Now, as the recipe goes, we take 1 kit + 1 kit and tada! 3 kits to play with:

And here is a layout that I made with it:

Tip of the Week - Do You Shift?

Do you know that magical things that your SHIFT key can do for your scrapbook pages?  It's a super easy tip, but one I didn't know when I was starting out in this awesome hobby.

Hold down the SHIFT when you are resizing your stuff and they will keep their proportions.

When using your Line Tool, use the SHIFT to get a perfectly straight line every time.

When rotating your paper, text or elements, hold the SHIFT key to "pop" them into place beautifully. 

 I *heart* my SHIFT key :).

And don't forget that Dani's entire store is 40% off until October 31st in Celebration of Halloween!  
Now that is a Tip you cannot live without!

See you next week!
