Template Spotlight!

Hi everyone, Tanyia here! I am so excited to be back here sharing off some more of Wendy's stuff! I was looking through all her goodies at Brownie Scraps and I realized I had never played with some of the templates in the store that were previously released!

So I snagged this super cool set here (image linked directly to the store!):


I love that you can make matching envelopes! Usually card templates do not come with them and I can never seem to get making an envelope right on my own, so this is SO perfect for me! I made two cards so far, and I think I may just make a 5 or 10 card set and gift them as a gift at Christmas time! How perfect would that be?

Anyway, take a look at what I did, for full credit info just click the pic and you can see the kits I used to make them as well.



Thanks for looking, go take a look in Wendy's store, there is really so many adorable things there to play with! Happy scrappin'!

A Look Back

Sarah here!! One of Wendy's CT!!

One of my favorite ever hybrid templates from Wendy is the Keep Me Posted template:

It's so easy to get completely creative with it! I know a lot of people did!!

I love the picture being used!!

*giggles*
This is just too fun!!

The panda is just chilling out and I see notes being given on how to find your zen or something! Perfect, right?

Just so sweet!!

Bright and colorful! Just lovely!!

Make sure you pick up your copy and share some love!! They make GREAT teacher's gifts!!

Fancy Basket Release and RAK!

My new template this week is another fun Easter Basket with a more elegant shape that makes it perfect for holidays without bunnies and eggs too!  I think it is perfect for Mother’s Day, especially when you add some flower embellishments!

I used the fun collab Splendidly Spring by Ramona the Pest and Marni Designs - I just love that flowered paper!

Here are a couple more my team did!

I hope that you’ve been shopping Ramona’s store before she retires at the end of the month - all the proceeds are going to her son Sam’s school - an amazing school that has been wonderful with his special needs!

Not sure what to get?  Here are a few of my favorites!
