happy Friday!

Good Friday morning? Is anyone else excited for the weekend? I don't have any special plans so it's going to be a l-a-z-y kind of weekend...the best kind in my opinion. ;)

I have some exciting news to share....I decided to add 2 new talented ladies to my Creative Team. I am really excited to introduce to you.....Kristine Macabare and Miranda Assenberg. They are both so uniquely talented and I am honored to have them on my team! Welcome ladies!

so much to share....

I have been a bit busy lately....with many different projects. I've been doing a little bit of digital kit designing, digital layout creating, card-making, hybrid creating and more....busy, busy, busy. :)

I have a large mix of creations to show you today and even more by my creative team that I think I'll save for another post.

In digital news.....I released two brand new kits this week - March and March Whimsy.

 

  

These 2 following layouts are part of my Garden Girl assignment for the month of February. The first one features my March Whimsy kit and the second one a gorgeous kit by Vinnie Pearce - Love You. For full credits, click on the images.

The following layout is one near and dear to my heart. I created it for Creative Memories. It is on the Project Center there. I used one of their new digital collections - Vintage Romance. It's really beautiful. This layout tells my grandparent's love story. For full credits, click on the image.

The following cards were created for SRM Stickers. I am really having so much fun with their products. You can now shop online directly from the manufacturer. :)

a hybrid card to share

 
Supplies: 
Jen Martakis Designs - March Whimsy Digital Kit
SRM Stickers - Sticker Sentiments #5003 Happy Birthday
Creative Memories - White Cardstock, Tape Runner, 
Foam Squares, 12" Rotary Trimmer w/Scoring Blade
May Arts - Gingham Ribbon


 

 

Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made using my new digital kit March Whimsy. It will be available in my store at Two Peas this coming Tuesday. If you love whimsical, you'll love this kit! I also used SRM Stickers. If you love easy, you will love these. They are amazing and fun. I love sentiments but often don't care to get out my stamp pads and ink nor do I feel like setting up my text to print. SRM Stickers are the perfect touch for any of your crafting projects.

To create this card I started with a New document in Photoshop - 5x5 inches @ 300 dpi. I then placed all of the digital elements that I was going to use on my card and re-sized them, editing as necessary. I also used this step to "design" my card and place everything how I want it to be once it's printed. I opened up an 8 1/2x11 (300 dpi) document and placed the elements for printing. Print and cut. Easy peasy! Hybrid is so much fun!

By the way, SRM Stickers can now be purchased directly from the manufacturer. Here's a link to the online shop. Keep your eye on the blog for inspiration. New projects are posted every weekday! You'll see a project  (think cupcakes!) by me this coming Thursday. :)

Kraft and Notebook Papers....OH MY!

I absolutely love creating fun, themed digital kits but as a scrapbooker myself, I know that you need to have those "go to" basics. So.....that's what this week's new releases are all about...the basics. Click on images to be taken to the store. :)






There's a relatively new blog that I'd like to share with my readers....it's called Weekly Gratitude. It's inspired by the Gratitude Project which focuses on recognizing the blessings in our lives. It is hosted by the two extremely talented ladies, Lori Gentile and Karen Grunberg. Lori contacted me a week or two ago and asked if I would be interested in creating a freebie template for them. I was honored to create THIS one for them. It's available from this post as well as in my store at Two Peas. Here you can see the fun layout that Lori created with it. :)

Here are a few projects that my CT put into the gallery yesterday using these new kits....Click on images for full credit.

Congrats ladies!
