Mosaic Memories Easter, FREE Word Art and Thanks!

I have one new product in my shop at Nuthouse Scraps this week, Mosaic Memories -V2. This pack comes with a FREE EASTER WORD ART Set, conveniently layered on the templates as shown.


Time for a proud Momma brag, my son put together and hosted, fundraiser rave, and raised over $1,000 to support Family Violence Prevention! His event, Unity Fest,  raised a total of $1,195 for Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc.‘s Battered Women and Children’s Shelter! (This does not include online donations, you might have made. Since I linked you directly to their site for donations, I have no way to track what money was raised through our online efforts.)


After turning in the check, to the Battered Women and Children’s Center of SA, the CEO and my son got to talking, and because the night was such a success, she specially requested that his company, Carpe Noctem Entertainment, host a Rave for the kids and teens living in the center. after having escaped from abuse! He will be throwing a Huge Glow Rave for these kids and teens, and introduce them to the Peace Love Unity and Respect movement, leaving them with a message that people in their situation can really benefit from.


Also, just a reminder, to show my support, for this event, and battered women and children every where, I created this free reaffirming Wordart pack. This  pack includes two Wordart sets in layered PSD files, and separate and merged PNGs. There is also a a printable that would be great for hanging to remind you to do you daily affirmations. The word bits are on translucent tape, to work with any layout. You can still get my  I Am Strong Wordart pack, for FREE by clicking here.

One “problem” I often run into when scrapping, is too many pictures. I feel that each picture tells a part of the story. So, unless the picture is really bad, I usually want to use all of them. However, I don’t want to end up with twenty or more pages for every event, so the majority of my layouts are multi photo. I am so happy that a new design trend is mosaic type layouts, I have scrapped this way for years, but with the recent white space and clustering fads, my mosaic templates were not well received. However, I think that will change now, as more and more people realize the benefit of creating simple layouts that showcase lots of photos. Because of this, I am happy to share with you my newest template line, Mosaic Memories.

These coordinating layout, and element templates, will help you get your pages done quickly and easily. Not just for people with lots of pictures, these templates give you maximum versatility. Think outside the box, instead of photos, you could clip papers to the various layers, add journaling and even elements. Lots more Mosaic Memories products coming soon!

Save Time with PSP Scripts!

Do you want to use templates with lots of layers but find it tedious to open so many photos or other elements, copy it, paste them as a new layer onto your project, then close the initial images? Do you use Paint Shop Pro? Then you will LOVE Open As A Layer – a FREE PSP Script by Creation Cassel! This is perfect to speed up the process if you want to create, mosaics, or any project that requires multiple layered elements.

Open As A Layer is the perfect companion to Clip To It – PSP Script. In ONE CLICK, the template layer will be changed to a mask layer and your photo will be placed under it, so you can actually see through the mask and know exactly how it will display on your layout. It will not be trimmed, so you can move the photo to center your subject, resize  & more.

Another great time saver is Shadow placer – PSP script, you choose the settings you want for your shadows: choose its orientation, its color, its opacity, etc. The script will apply it to the elements/papers!

Christmas and Winter Bundles – FREE Wordart Frame!

Hello Friends!

This week, I have new Winter, and Christmas themed bundles for you. Just in time for you to scrap your seasonal, and holiday photos. In addition to the special bundle price, each of today’s new products is currently on sale for 35% off at Nuthouse-Scraps.







This limited time freebie coordinates with my Snow Fun Template Packs, which are included in today’s winter themed bundles. Click here to download.


Happy New Year! New Templates, Free Frame!

Hi Friends!

I hope your new year is off to a great start. I took a little longer break than I had planned, but am happy to be back to my scrapping and template design.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I recently realized I had not scrapped my Valentine photos from 2012.  My husband is not the most romantic type, so he was pretty proud of himself, when he planned a Japanese themed evening. He doted on me, as we strolled, though the San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden, and had dinner at Kobe Steakhouse.





I used Asian Spirit – Bundle by ManuScraps, to scrap our Valentine’s Day outing. Asian Spirit – Bundle comes in beautiful colors from pink to dark red, greens, grey to black and from cream and beige to dark brown. You can use it for all your Asian vacation scraps or even when you had a sushi dinner at home – you’ll find everything from dragon to chopsticks, lots of flowers, fans and even dresses you can wear! I loved working with Asian Spirit – Bundle, and plan to use it again, in the near future, to scrap photos from my daughters study abroad trip to Japan. Want to learn more about ManuScraps? Click here to visit her blog.


My layouts, and Manu’s kit, inspired my Asian Valentine Template Packs. Which, include a few of Manu’s elements in template form. Special thanks to Manu for allowing me to share! Use these templates as a guide, for placing elements from Asian Spirit – Bundle, or any kit of your choice.








I also have some snow themed template packs in my shops this week. Snow Fun comes complete with lots of wordart frames, and snowflakes, in various sizes, and shapes.




All of today’s templates, are currently 35% off at Nuthouse-Scaps!

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I hope you enjoy this free Valentine themed Wordart photo frame. This freebie is for your Personal Use only.  Click here to download, have a great rest of the day!


$1 Mini Book and CD/DVD Ornament Templates, FREE tutorial!

Hi Friends,

Since I have already told you about my sales for the rest of the month, I will not post about each individual sale, every day. However, I did want to share a couple of hybrid templates I made, that would make wonderful Christmas gifts for family and friends. Both are on sale today only, for just $1.00 each!


Mini Book Christmas Ornament

Make a fun Mini Book Christmas Ornament with this single page template! Very convenient for printing, and making copies. Free tutorial included.


With a few alterations, this template would be great for any subject or occasion. I use these books all the time, with my preschool kids, to reinforce our lesson plans. They love them so much, we are making this version, as our gift to the parents.

The entire mini book, all 8 pages, are on the one page, Mini book Template is 11×8.5, 300 DPI, in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap4Hire, and Commercial Use. Shadows on preview for display purposes only.


Christmas Ornament CD/DVD Holder

Use this template pack to create a Christmas ornament that holds your CD or DVD!


I make DVDs for my preschool parents, each year, of all the pictures and scrapbook pages I made through out the year, about the time I spend with their children. About two years ago, I started making these ornaments to hold them, the parents love them so much, I now make them for grandparents too!

I also make DVDs of all our family photos though the year. My mother looks forward to getting the ornament as much as she does the DVD.


This pack includes 2 (front and back) 11×8.5, 300 DPI templates, in PSD and PNG format, and the below tutorial, on how to assemble your ornament. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, Scrap For Others, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly. Shadows on templates for preview purposes only.

CD/DVD Christmas Ornament

To assemble your ornament.

1) Print on heavy duty cardstock.

There is a small amount of extra space on the bottom circle of each or my templates. This is to provide a cut bleed area.

2) Use circle cutters to cut out the front and back of your ornament.

3) You need a strong adhesive to ensure your CD Ornament stays together, when the weight of the CD is added, and it hangs on a tree.

To leave an opening, for you CD to slide in and out, do not apply adhesive to about five twelfths of the ornament, on one side, 12 and 5 on the clock. Apply adhesive to the underside, outmost edge, and with backs facing each other, stack.

4) Punch hole for ribbon

5) Thread ribbon through hole, creating a loop for hanging

6)  Add your CD/DVD and your ornament is done.


Print layers separately, then add Pop-Dots between the layers, and stack,  to add depth.

Instead of using the provided word art, use a photo, baby’s handprint or details/journaling about what is on your CD/DVD.

Here is a similar ornament, I made a couple of years ago.

I hope your enjoy the Mini Book, and CD/DVD Ornament templates!

Have a great rest of the day!!
