New Releases, Including an Awareness Kit

This week's new releases are in the shops and of course are buy one, get one free. I really love the kits and had a blast making them. Something a little different, and something a little personal. Regardless of which you like, you will get both for the price of one. And with that you still get them at a discount. The kits are $3.20 each, but you only need to pay for one to get the links to both.


Wired

The Wired templates are block templates with a twist. Each template has a custom page frame which frame the photos and line the different sections of the page. Each section has a mask so you can quickly get the perfect shaped paper. Embellishments adorn the pages, taking advantage of the depth the page frame gives the page. These are all purpose templates which work for any topic and theme.




My {Awareness} Story

I knew when I started designing that I would make an awareness kit at some point. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer and have struggled to make a layout about it. Sometimes emotions make it hard to scrap specific events. So my thought was to design a kit to make it easier to create layouts which would honor the women who faced this terrible disease. At the same time, I wanted these templates to instill hope and be useful to other awareness stories. Two gals on my creative team have daughters who have battled diabetes all their lives and another gal who's child has autism. So this became more of a way to tell those stories, regardless of the illness and stage of the trial. All the words and images in My {Awareness} Story have multiple uses.



Creative Team Inspiration

My gals did it again: They made gorgeous layouts to show off this week's kits. First, layouts using Wired.

          

Here are their layouts using My {Awareness} Story:

            


On a Personal Note...

Thank you for all the messages, well wishes and prayers I have received over the last few weeks. I am getting ready for spine surgery number #15 on Monday and dread it. I woke up this morning to emails telling me about a gorgeous collaboration kit and gift donations from my designers across digiland. There are not enough words to express my shock and gratitude for all the work these ladies have done to help my little family. I love all of you and you have touched my family in such a way we will never forget. Once you join the digi world, you really join a creative family where we look out for one another. I never imagined I would be at the receiving end of such graciousness, but I am. My husband has also been emotionally moved by this magnificent gesture of love. I don't know how I will ever repay such gratitude. I can only hope and pray each of these women will be blessed beyond measure.

You can see what these women did by visiting either shop. Here is the collab kit:


And you can join in the activities and rewards in association with this massive kit:
GingerScraps layout contest and the GoDigitalScrapbooking quick page exchange.


I do hope you have an exciting week. Remember to share your layouts using LissyKay templates on the Facebook fan page. I really love seeing your creations as the inspire me to design even more templates!

Sparkle & Shine!
Melissa
