Oopsies, I almost forgot!!

Wow, have I been scatter-brained!! I made these desktop calendars using Temptation a couple of weeks ago, but I totally forgot about them! But as my teachers always told me (regarding my homework lol) "better late than never"!

I hope you still have some use for them, next month I promise to try to remember to post desktop calendars earlier than the last day of the month lol!

Have a look at what Jana made for you!

Sorry, I've been a very bad blogger =( Life around here has been very hectic this past week. My fiance was laid off of work in September, and has only been able to find part time work so far. Well our savings has pretty much been depleted now and I've been running around trying to sort out what help we can get as well as counting out the change out of "the jar".

But enough about my troubles, one of my CT gals, Jana, has made a couple of gorgeous quick page freebies up for you using my kit, Cherished Memories!!

Grab them over at Jana's Blog here
and don't forget to leave her some love <3

Brotherly Love and a CT Call

I had some time to play around today and I had this sweet picture of my older son, Ezra kissing his little brother when he was a week and a half old that I wanted to scrap. This is what I came up with...

I used my Valentine's Day kit, Temptation at that is available at the boutique at DigitalArts-cafe, and used the font Pea Jamie*B*

Ezra is such a sweet big brother, always making sure that Wyatt has everything that he needs and loves to make him laugh! I'm so lucky to have two gorgeous, sweet little boys!

I still have room for a couple more members for my Creative team, so come apply! Everyone is welcome to apply, so newcomers to digital scrapbooking don't be shy!!

To apply, just send a quick email to me at karyn.clarke(at)sky(dot)com and I will get back to you!

Some Layouts and a Quick Page

I wanted to share a layout that I made using my Valentine's Day digital scrapbooking kit, Temptation. The photo is one of my favorites of me and my fiance, Ian that we took when we went to the beach in Wales over the summer.

The following layout was made by my one of my creative team members, Jana, using my kit Cherished Memories. You can check out her blog, Scraps & Sparklz, here.

Leave her some love here

This next layout was made using Temptation by my CT member, Kelly aka Scrap Girl.

Leave her some love here

I am still accepting applications for my creative team, so if you would like to have your layouts showcased here on my blog and get all my kits for free check out this post for all the details.

And just for you, I've made this 12" x 12" Quick Page freebie from my layout above.

Wordless Wednesday



Monday, 12 January 2009


Valentine's Day is fast approaching us, and you know what that means, right? Time to show those loved ones of ours how much we care about them! I have a new kit out in my shop at DigitalArts-cafe, called Temptation that embraces the more passionate and seductive side of Valentine's with it's blacks and reds. Grab yourself a bargain, until the 19th of January you can save 20% on the kit.

The kit includes 13 papers, and 32 embellishments.

All images are linked

I have also made a black alpha with silver glitter that coordinates with the kit, but because black and silver can be used with every color combination imaginable it is the perfect alpha to add to your scrapbooking stash.

The alpha contains both upper and lower case letters, numbers 0-9, and various symbols (in both individual .png files as well as sheets).

And to complete this tempting kit, you can grab the add-on with 3 papers and 4 elements absolutely free!

Do you want a chance to be featured on my blog? Here's how you can in two easy steps!

1. Make a layout, bragbook page, card or anything else with one of my kits from the boutique
2. Post it with a link to my shop in the DigitalArts-cafe gallery by the 31st of January

And in the beginning of February I will post it on here!

Would you like a challenge?

There's a new template challenge going on over at DigitalArts-cafe, hosted by one of my fellow designers, Mozz (For Ever More Creations).

There are two parts to the challenge... the first is to create your own CD-sized template using the shapes provided by the 11th of January and offer it as a freebie. You can download the shapes and find the complete rules at the forum here.

Once you have made your template post a link to where it can be downloaded at the forum here.

On January 12th, "The Chosen One" will be posted and the second part of the challenge begins, where you use the chosen template to create a LO. There is a really cute posting bonus as well if you use at least 50% of your items from DigitalArts-cafe designers.

So here is my contribution for the first part of the challenge, in a layered .psd =)


And here is a LO of my son, Ezra at the park using the template above and my new kit Cherished Memories
