January 2023 Magic Of AddOns by Connie Prince

 



This month's Magic of AddOn Packs will focus on layouts using my #2023 February!  These monthly collections are packed with everything that you need for the current month's memory making adventures.  The February collection is full of love and cuteness!  From layouts celebrating the love of your life or maybe just a few of your favorite February things this collection will have you covered.

 
 


First up this adorable layout by Evelyn!  She captured this precious sweetheart perfectly and I just love how she's used the hedgehogs!  The Word Art pack gave her a sweet title option and take a look at that Messy Paper peeping out in the back. 

 
 
Don't be fooled by the pretty in pink of this month's first layout because this collection is also PERFECT for boys! Lisa created this precious layout of her grandson.  It looks fabulous with the Messy Paper background and the sweet Feeling Loved Word Art was a perfect touch. I also see pieces from the matching Mini Kit on this one!

 


Celebrate those romantic moments with the perfect photo of you and your significant other!  Lyn did such a pretty job with this layout, I love the photo of her and her husband.  The Messy Paper made an amazing base with the touches of ink and graffiti.  Her title from the Word Art pack seems custom made for this moment!



You could even do an all in one February layout!  This winter / Valentine's layout by Lynn is absolutely adorable.  Great snow photos and just look at those pretty Valentine's treats!  The heart paper from the Extra Paper pack offers a nice pop in the background.  The February title sums up the layouts content and I love the quote from the Mini Kit!


The next layout features the cutest kids and such a well composed page by Lori!  The Kit, Mini Kit, & Word Art are used to perfection!


Wishing you the very best February, have a wonderful month!


Until next time!

Free Weekly Kit by Featured Designer: Sweet Pea Designs

 

We would love to welcome
Sweet Pea Designs as this week's
Featured Designer!

How long have you been designing?
As Sweet Pea Designs since 2011, before that I was designing with my sister under another name for about 2 years.

Your favorite toy as a child was?
My Grandmother gave me a Thumbelina Doll when I was very young (I know I'm dating myself!). I carried that doll around everywhere! I still have that doll to this day.

Who is your hero?
My Hero would be my Mom. We lost her in 2020. She had a very difficult life but she never complained. She always stayed positive, prayed hard and loved her family. Looking back the best part of growing up in our family was how Mom made everything special for us no matter what she was facing. 

What makes you laugh the most?
My Husband. He is the silliest and can make me laugh even on the hard days.

What is your favorite season?
Fall, up north with the beautiful vibrant colors of changing leaves. Here in Florida we never experience it :(

Connie Prince's January 2023 Designer Tip

 

 

There is just something about really bold about a monochromatic layout!  Whether you choose to let bright colors lead the way or a more subtle approach!

My favorite is bright, bold colors contrasted against a darn background as displayed in this layout.


Monochromatic gray and white makes a statement like nothing else.  I love the thoughtful touches of this layout by Bernice!

 
A bold yellow background with amazing travel stamps and element really set the tone for this gorgeous layout by Lori!
 
 
Here is another gorgeous example by Lisa against a black background.  You can dress it up for any occasion!


 The bold colors yet keeping with a monochromatic feel really set the holiday tone for this sweet layout by Audrey.  Not to mention a puppy - you can't go wrong!


However you decide to channel the monochromatic vibe you are bound to end up with a striking layout that you will love!

DYL: Believe Collection (retiring) with Diane, ADB Designs

Take a leap of faith and begin today by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source - a Sower of Dreams - just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true. [Sarah Ban Breathnach]

I am retiring the Believe Digital Scrapbook Collection. The Collection is 65% off through January 19 & then it is gone to the vault. It is perfect for all kinds of everyday scrapping, from Mother's Day and Father's Day to confirmation or other religious events. The palette of soft blue, tan, brown and cream is versatile and works for images of all types.

Flowers, foliage, frames and a variety of ribbons and a beautiful butterfly are ready to decorate your pages AND with all the extras included in the Bundle you can create a series of lovely layouts quickly.

Scrapbooking Prompt(s) / Question 157

  • Scrap about a special time when one of your dreams came true.
  • Scrap about a dream you have now that is as yet unfulfilled.

IF this collection is not in your stash, grab it now before it is gone.








Delighted to be able to share one more time the lovely layouts from my Creative Team.






Happy Scrapping!
Diane

Free Weekly Kit by Featured Designer: Lisa Rosa Designs

 

We would love to welcome Lisa Rosa Designs as this week's Featured Designer!


If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Some salad. I love salads!

Would you rather eat sweet or salty foods for the rest of your life?
Salty, for sure. I do like sweets sometimes... but salty food is definitely my favorite.

What is your favorite season?
Winter! No doubt on this one...
I don't feel good when it's too hot, and it's usually very hot here in Brazil... except during winter, when temperatures drop down to around 20ÂșC... much better.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Oh, a night owl. Although I can wake up early, I don't like it very much and I don't feel I'm as productive as at night.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
Quit my day job, grab my notebook, go to Portugal with my daughters and my cat to meet my sister, buy a motorhome and travel around Europe with them... sleeping in campgrounds, cheap hotels, trying all kinds of food, going to street markets, picnicking in parks... collecting inspiration here and there and designing along the way.

To finish off we would love to share some of Lisa Rosa Designs' favorite layouts:
 
Layout out from Stay Cozy
Layout out from Sow the Seed
Layout out from Heading to the Farm
Layout out from Early Bird
Layout out from All My Love
