Fantastical Fall Layout and Desktop Calendar idea

I have for you a few more creations using my FANTASTICAL FALL release.

Tracy used this kit to create a Desktop Calendar for the upcoming month of November....

( What a great idea--If I could turn on the computer and have this image waiting for me, I would be in scrapbook bliss! Love those strips! Really incredible! Love the punches, the colors, the clustering. And that photo is too cute--Looks like the little guy just zonked out just as that food was being served--maybe he was tired waiting for all that yummy Thanksgiving feast to be done! That strip of white just made everything stand out so well!)

(That photo is incredible--that lone maple tree in the middle of all that green grass land! I just loved the falling maple leaves everywhere!. And that rich brown paper strip and the white one really set off that photo! The border around the middle made for a dramatic finish! And the addition of flowers and a pretty ribbon just made it more beautiful to look at!)

Poki told me that most of the green is actually what they call "scrub cedar" (which are not cedars at all) they stay green year round!
Ready for my personal layout?

I created this for the Speed/Slow Scrap over at Wilma4Ever last week.  (It is a photo of our kids last Fall during a 5 mile hike through the woods.)

If you want to create a similar layout to this, just follow the directions in this thread.  Earn a Participation Prize if you post by October 3rd. 

Inspiration Using FANTASTICAL FALL by Pizazz Pixels

Sit back and enjoy these wonderful layouts by my Creative Team using my latest release, FANTASTICAL FALL.....

 CT Layout by AnGeon

(Oh do I just love all those deep layers on this lovely creation! You just have to keep looking close to check out all those elements and paper goodies with each layer! And beautifully tucked in are those perfect photos of her family too! Love that bridge in the background especially.  I also liked how she  changed up the title with upper and lower alphas too for a cool effect! So beautiful. Stunning!)

CT Layout - Chris
(Even though it is not quite Fall in England, Chris found a way to use this kit--to show off some beautiful bushes at a local park.   I thought it was clever how she cut up the border and used it to tie those 2 photos together.  Her layering of paper was perfect too--what a nice way to show off that white paper and those adorable little birds!)

CT Layout - Poki

( I cannot believe that she created that little border behind the photo, the frame, and the photo mask by herself! All of these pieces made the photo seem a bit more subtle and it really stood out more too.

The orange and white combo were beautiful -just as that lovely sun photo! Where she lives is such a pretty spot--a home vacation spot--ideal!

CT Layouts - Out West kit by Pizazz Pixels

My Creative Team has really outdid themselves using my latest release, OUT WEST!  Here are a few more layouts to inspire you....


Credits:  CT Layout by Chris, Out West kit by Pizazz Pixels
Fall is here and it is the perfect time to visit those local Cider Mills and/or Petting Farms in the area.  Here Chris shows the versatility of this kit by using it to highlight her recent visit to a farm!  I really love the flow of those photos in the middle of her page.  Also, she did an incredible extraction on that photo to the left bottom and completed her creation with the animal pen and word art piece!  She even added some elements to Tyler himself to make him look a bit more authentic!

My favorite part was that cluster to the right where she placed the cactus, boots and horseshoes!  A great finishing touch!

Credits:  CT Layouts by Kristine, Out West kit by Pizazz Pixels
Here are some more photos taken of Kristine's inlaws' ranch.  Aren't those Western photos just incredible?  The scenery is just beautiful--from the views of the barn to that fire pit to that entrance to those amazing animals which live on their ranch--every photo seems like it came from a post card!  I definitely want to take a trip to a local ranch now!  (Another thing to add to the bucket list.)  I especially liked how she cut up the barbed wire element and placed them on the corners of the page to tie both pages together!

Get Ready Ya'll for Some Amazing CT Layouts using my OUT WEST kit

I cannot believe how fast my Creative Team works sometimes.  I just released this kit a few days ago and they have already rustled up some layouts to inspire us...........

(Now don't you just get that Western feel with this absolutely gorgeous layout?  I just love how she used the roping and barbed wire elements to create those side borders!  And how incredible was her clustering?  Man oh man, I just could not believe it myself!  I especially liked how she used that paper element as a pop of color behind that sweet photo of her son riding a horse.)

 Credits:  Out West by Pizazz Pixels; Layout Created by CT Member, Poki
This template, flowered letters, and blended photo were all made by Poki! Font - Chunk Five CU ok

Here she highlights some Icons of Texas, her home state.  I just love how she highlighted her state like this--made me want to check out some of those awesome sites myself!  I am glad she also included a photo of herself in there too highlighted with that great cluster!  She informed me that she wants to do future layouts which focus on each one of these icons so I am so looking forward to that!

Credits:  Out West by Pizazz Pixels; Layout Created by CT Member, Kristine

(This photo was taken at her in law's ranch which has majestic views, amazing animals, and a lot of wide open spaces!  They do not have many modern conveniences and I could not believe it when she told me that they cook over an actual fire--I can hardly grill myself!  I really love how she placed all those papers inside the pen and then added that adorable little roping frame to the outside to make it look like everything was enclosed perfectly.  Also, I love the way she used her star and clustered it with 2 other elements to make a perfect accent to this page.)

If you want to rustle up this kit for yourselves, it is on sale for the incredible price of $2.79 until September at all my stores.

Slow Scrap Still going on at Wilma4Ever - Pizazz Pixels is hosting - Earn a free mini kit!!!

If you missed my Speed Scrap over at Wilma4Ever on Tuesday, you can still participate!  You can join in on the Slow version.  All you have to do is check out the main thread where all the rules and instructions are given.  You then post a layout which looks similar to the layout which I created for the Speed Scrap....

(During a recent boy scout outing where the troop rode for a bit, had a picnic lunch, and then our family decided to take an additional longer bike riding trip.  It turns out that the trail was a bit longer than we thought.  Our poor son--he has a little boy's bike and it was difficult for him to keep up on a trail with very little hills.  We finally took a much needed break as it was getting hotter and hotter and we did not know when we would finish!  Don't they look so worn out?  Afterwards, we found out that we really traveled 8 miles--no wonder why we were so tired!

Check out this thread for all the information.  (If you post a layout by September 17th before 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, you will earn this participation prize--A Free Mini Kit.  This mini kit coordinates to my main kit, "Magical Fairies.")


More "Magical Fairies" CT Layouts - dog update

Just got back from the vet--I wanted to have our 12 year old dog checked out because I did not know if his hearing was ok--he does not bark when the garage opens anymore and he seems so surprised when we come up to pet him if he is sleeping.  The veterinarian said that there is no blockage in the ears--good news, but he is probably experiencing hearing loss due to old age--bad news.  Also, his eyes are becoming a bit cloudy so his vision is decreasing now too.  On top of all that, he has arthritis in his legs.  The signs of age--poor thing!  So there is nothing we can do about the hearing loss but he suggested that we start with hand signals to prepare our dog in case his hearing loss becomes worse. 

So now we have a household of 2 kids, a husband, and a dog with selective hearing!  I, of course, hear too much!

After a morning at the vet, I thought I would post some more layouts for you to enjoy using my latest release, "Magical Fairies" which is available at all my stores -- and is on sale too by the way for September.  These particular layouts show the versatility of this kit.  Even though the kit is called "Magical Fairies," here are some ways to use the kit a bit more generically....

The first is such an adorable layout by Chris and she used the kit to show off her Easter photos of all things.  Now isn't that such a cute baby face covered by that beautiful umbrella/parasol?  

CT Credits:  Magical Fairies by Pizazz Pixels - Layout by Chris
I just loved how she used the elements of this kit to create her own types of elements.  For instance, she added the fairies in the kit to some paper strips to create that adorable border around the page!  She also used the container, the label, the glitter, and added word art to make that fun little Fairy dust container. 
I especially liked how there were those 2 beautiful blue frames in the layout to make those photos really stand out!  So precious!  (Hope they found lots of eggs and who knows, maybe they even spotted a fairy???)
CT Credits:  Magical Fairies by Pizazz Pixels - Layout by Chris

In this second layout, Chris shows a quilting style technique.  She created little blocks with the paper and then added the ribbon and papers along with the scatter to create a one of a kind border which flows throughout the layout.  I just loved those PJ's and the photo of that friendship!

Magical Fairies - CT Layouts for Inspiration

Are you ready for some inspiration from my Creative Team using my latest release, "Magical Fairies?"  Today I have for you some layouts which are truly inspired by these mystical beings.  Whether or not you believe in fairies, you can still appreciate these beautiful layouts!

CT Layout by Poki - She has friends in Michigan and their family are always hot on the trail of the fairies in Ann Arbor ... Poki used her friends pictures with permission to show their amazing discoveries!  (I just love the way Poki created that beautiful border in the middle and these colors are just so amazing together!)  How adorable is that little door too?  Beautiful clustering throughout)

 Exploring a cave for fairies!  She told me later that they did not find anything out of the ordinary within this cave---only some local goats!  (I just love that title on this page and how she created those blocks with the cool border and stitching!  Those bursts everywhere just made everything stand out a bit better and made the page look a bit more magical!

A bit later I will share with you some more layouts using this kit--this time with a more generic subject matter.  Stay tuned......

New Release by Pizazz Pixels -- Magical Fairies

The colors of the Earth and nature are everywhere in this quality-checked super-sized kit inspired by the outdoors and nature.  A special additional theme of this kit is fairies because my daughter loves a particular famous fairy, “Tinker Bell” who loves to tinker with natural things.

Whether or not you are a believer in fairies, this kit is still perfect for all those outdoor photos since it focuses on the beautiful colors of the Earth and Nature—green and brown for the Earth and ground, different shades of blue for the sky, and gold and yellow for those sunny days!

Inspiration for PARIS BISTRO – The Cozy Cafe’ by Pizazz Pixels

Time for some scenery folks as the focus for another spectacular layout created by Tracy using my latest kit...

That combination of off-black and pink certainly grabs your attention.  So does the layering of those 2 papers!  This makes for a more 3D look to the page until finally you get to see that beautiful masked off photo of that pretty waterfall.

And that cluster--Can I just say BREATHTAKING!  It is cascading perfectly just like that waterfall pictured.

More Inspiration from my latest release - PARIS BISTRO – The Cozy Cafe’ by Pizazz Pixels

Sit back and enjoy some spectacular layouts created by members of my Creative Team using my latest release, The Cozy Cafe’.....

My Creative Team choose children as their focus when they designed these stunning layouts.....

Take a look at what Kristine has done with this kit.  She created this layout for her best friend whose daughter is pictured. 

It was so pretty to cut the papers into those paper strips at the side of that beautiful framed photo!  Also, the border to the left was just gorgeous!  This looks like a cover to what could be an entire album dedicated to this adorable girl!  That heart was just the perfect final touch.  She cut out one of my elements into that shape--what a fantastic idea!

And introducing another Creative Team Member to my Team---Tracy.  Here is her stunning layout.  That faded photo on the left and then in full color at the right made for a sweet-looking layout.  Also, that clustering around those frames was just incredible!  Looks like Sierra is in a pretty meadow surrounded by love and flowers as it should be..

Inspiration from my latest release - PARIS BISTRO – The Cozy Cafe’ by Pizazz Pixels

Sit back and enjoy these pretty layouts created by members of my Creative Team using my latest release, The Cozy Cafe’.....

Created by Poki - A niece and several of her friends spent a Girls Night Out at a restaurant to celebrate the upcoming birth of her 3rd child.
Isn't that blocking technique stunning--all those squares, frames, and the contrast of colors along with her black and white photo make this page dramatic and beautiful!

Creatd by Chris - Her son and daughter visited France and enjoyed their local cafe's!
What a perfect way to use one of the elements in this kit--as an awning over an actual photo! This really makes this romantic photo stand out so much more.  Also, those layers of paper really add some pretty depth to the page!
Stay tuned for some more--next up is inspiration with kids as the focus.....
