A funky, fun kit that can work for all the layouts of your sweetie & layouts of your motorcycle is the great new kit Wild Thing, a collaboration between Meagan’s Creations & Gettin’ Scrappy With Britt. This funky rocking kit will be perfect for all your rocking shots of your little or big boys, in addition to the kit there is a quick pages set plus a Valentine’s Day card set. Several of the cards are generic enough to use all year long.

Templates in Use

OK, I admit it that I never know if someone's used the templates I offer for the various blog trains but I just saw this in the Stuff to Scrap Gallery, it's by Wendy Tunison. How cool is that?

Squeeee! It totally made my day after dealing with sick kids & sick husband & being sick for so long. Wendy used the template I made for the Twitterpated Blog Train (available for just a few more days!) & the kit For Us by Pretty In Green.

I am in a very happy place right now, thank you Wendy!

Love Is

'Tis the day of love & B2N2 Scraps has a great new kit, Love Is, that is very versatile & can work for all sorts of layouts. I love that there are the traditional reds & pinks but that Becky has included browns & blues for those of us who aren't traditional with our Valentines! I found it perfect to make a Valentine's Day card for the grandparents with those adorable kissing birds. Pick the kit up at Stuff to Scrap for 30% off or Brownie Scraps for 25% off & check out Becky's blog & Facebook page for some freebies!

I Toadally Love You

When I found out that my boys could bring in Valentine's for their classmates, I knew I had to do something cute. Thankfully, Sarah of In The Small Things recently released I Toadally Love You which was exactly what I needed! It's not a typical Valentine kit, rather it's got toads & flies & is perfect for a couple of little boys.

After poking around on the interwebz, I decided to make some lollipop covers & I think they turned out adorable, what's your opinion? Love that there's a toad & fly on them, I think the boys' classmates will really like them!

As I spent a lot of time figuring out dimensions & such, I asked Sarah if I could offer the covers as a freebie & she said yes! Included in the download are covers for boys & girls, you'll find 4 covers per page as I tried to maximize space. Since I had to make about 35 covers, I ended up sending out most of covers to Office Depot to be printed. I got 32 coveres printed for about $5.75, with the cost of the lollipops it came out to about $.30 per lollipop. Not bad if you ask me!

Click on the preview to head to 4shared (Sorry, this freebie has expired!) to download the printable & have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
