Member Gallery Inspiration!

Each month we are going to feature layouts from our Members gallery in our newsletter! It's a great place to get inspiration from fellow subscribers on how to use your kits!  So start uploading your layouts today! you just might find your layout in our next newsletter! 

Our first layout called "laughter" using our February main kit!  Mami913 , created this layout and features an adorable picture of her boys! Just love it! 

Beautifullily  did this next inspiration! This was also used from our February main kit! I really like the tone on tone color scheme.. it really works! Her large title also helps bring focus to the page... this rocks!  

 

 

 

Our last layout was done by  Tonyaboo  .  She used bits and pieces of the January Project kit for this layout! I am pretty sure she also hand-drew the background on her page! I love how she sewed a random circle around the main elements of her layout as well. Great focal point! Thanks girl for sharing your work with us!
I just had to share with you this wonderful cause that Danielle Wycough informed me about. Create and Donate Card Drive is a fundraiser for Autism Speaks. The goal of the fundraiser is to have as many people as possible to create homemade cards and donate them to Create and Donate. The cards will then be sold at crops, benefits, online retailers and regular retailers. If you would like more info on participating in the card drive or even possibly purchasing the cards, e-mail Danielle at dwycough7@aol.com. I can't wait to get involved in this, my daughter and some friends are going away this weekend to "scrap" and I am going to make sure we create some cards to donate to this great cause! I have a son with Asperger's which is a high functioning form of Autism, so I know the importance of Autism Speaks and what it has done to help our children.. Thanks girl for putting this together!
A Free goody for Scarlet Lime Newsletter Readers!

Who doesn't love vinyl lettering? It is so versatile and  can be used on so many mediums (walls, layouts, frames, windows and more!)  The ladies at www.myvinyldesigner.com have made an easy way for you to actually download cool designs and cut out your OWN vinyl pieces using your Provo Craft Cricut machine! This is a great alternative to purchasing Cricut cartridges.   It's so easy, you simply download a program on your computer and go! The great thing too about their downloads, is you can also just use them to print directly onto cardstock, or cut them out of cardstock instead of vinyl, and cut them directly from your Cricut machine and put them on your layouts!  They are giving away a free download on their website for ALL Scarlet Lime newsletter readers!  Simply go to their website and add the phrase shown at right "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's learning to dance in the rain"  and then at checkout, simply enter the coupon code: scarletlime and it will be free! They also have so many other great downloads to choose from, that you can use either to print out on cardstock and put onto your layouts, or use your Cricut machine and cut out it out of Vinyl, cardstock, etc.. just as shown! They are also sponsoring another giveaway for this newsletter.. so check that out below!
