New this Week...Hang On, There's a Bunch!

This week, 5 new template kits were released to two stores. And one of those kits had so many circles, I literally was seeing spots. So lets just jump right to the releases!

New this week to the LissyKay shop at GingerScraps are fun new designs at 30%. Sale price lasts until March 20, 2014.

Gumballs. Yes, you heard right. Gumballs. My newest kit is filled with tons of circles in all different sizes, but when you add my template color palette to them, they look like gumballs. This kit works with either clipping papers to the circles or substituting elements so you have instant clusters or scatters.

My {Spring} Story is part of the whimsical part of the My Story line. I felt so bad for all my CT members living in the parts of the US where cold weather blasted them for months. This was to give them a little sunshine, even if just on a page. If you have not used the My Story kits, they work by simply clipping your paper or photos to the pre-cut shapes which fit perfectly under the page frame. The frame is optional. I like it because I prefer clean lines, but I also like the shadow box look. They work for pocket page projects and regular layouts.

My {Basic} Story, Volume 2 actually was a request from one of my Project 365 CT member's. She was needing some more standard size masks for her pocket page album and I figured if she needs them, then someone else must.

Now, to the craziest kit of the bunch. Many close to me know one of my dearest friends is Jill of Created by Jill Scraps. She had been planning to release a 50th birthday kit to celebrate her birthday. We chatted about working together with me making a companion template kit. So I made one. But when I saw she named her kit "Yep, It's My Birthday" it only made sense for me to call the matching template kit "It's Jill's Birthday!" You will find the templates work perfectly with her kits because they were designed with the specific papers and elements in mind. You will even be able to match up template parts to her kit parts, if you use them together. You may also want to watch out for all the fun Jill has planned for this weekend. Head over to the Created by Jill Scraps blog to find out when the games will start and where to find the freebies.

Here are the coordinating kits from Created by Jill Scraps:


Over at the LissyKay shop at, I had a chance to work with another friend. To the Moon is a template kit which matches back to LyllahRaven Design's To the Moon. She has a few boys, so I have no doubt that led to some of her inspiration. I have only a girl, so I had to make sure these templates worked back to the Lyllah kit but could stand on their own. It works.
