Three New Free Templates as a Holiday Gift

Christmas goodies are here. I decided to keep this year's freebies generic so you might be able to use them, regardless of which holiday you choose to celebrate. I have so much love and respect for each of my customers (really friends) and just want to tell you thank you for all you have done for my self esteem and healing.

There are a total of three templates. All are in the style of the My Story family of templates. I have had so many requests to make more, so I am kicking off with free ones!

Gift for You 7 is available right here on my website. Click on the image to download or you may click here.



Gift for You 8 is on my Facebook page. You may head over there to grab it.



Gift for You 9 will be in this weekend's newsletter. In a few days I will go back over the subscriber list and send this template out to anyone who signed up after the initial newsletter.


I am going to spend the holidays going back and finding all the freebies from the last 2 years. I will make all of them available as freebies, again. You will not have to spend any money for them. They were meant as gifts, and I will keep them as gifts.

Have a terrific holiday season. May you have peace and love in your heart and home.

Love,
Melissa

Did You Miss this Free Template?

With it being the end of the year, I am making sure those who missed this free template last year can grab it now! This was available last year on Scrap Stacks, but you can pick up just by clicking on the preview or by clicking here. This digital scrapbook template is a quick way to recap your year. You can drop the month names if you want to use it for another theme. Make what you want!! All four file types are available. Stay tuned, more free ones to come!


Going Sideways with New Templates

A new digital scrapbook template is in the shop! Sideways is the latest, and probably best reflection of my crazy brain. A little bit of pocket scrapping, with a little bit of traditional and a big dose of me. I hope you enjoy this fun play on different styles of scrapbooking! This set is 50% off, only $2.



If you would like to know the font I used, you can pick it up free. It is called Dancing Script, one of my favorite cursive fonts.


Here are a few layouts from my CT to give you an idea of different ways to use Sideways.

New Templates: One Christmas, One Not

The weekend is upon us and in digital scrapbook world that means new kits! There are two new template kits in the LissyKay shop. This Christmas and Panorama are both on sale at 50% off, whichs means $2 each for the next 7 days.

This Christmas is the kind of pages I like for those family holiday photos. A big spot to show off that one photo. With this year's family portrait kit I decided to make my own embellishments so that you could create a Christmas layout without really having to use a holiday kit. You still can, go for it. But if you have not found one that quite fits what you are looking for, simply recolor or clip digital paper to the pieces. Customize your layout!


Panorama blends the need for scenic, landscape photos with zoomed in images. I think of the time I was in New Zealand and took so many gorgeous beach shots. But the story was not all there if I just scrapped the beach. So I found it easy to make a spot for the scene, then add individual photos of the who and what were involved.


Enjoy scrapping and more to come next week, including a little holiday treat!

Dear Santa Template Kit is New and On Sale

The holidays are here and in full swing. "Dear Santa" is a new template kit in the shop. This is a fun way to help capture those moments our little ones have a few things to ask jolly old St. Nick.


Each template has a unique paper mask to help enhance the letter-writing mood. Notebook papers and various sizes allow you to type a letter directly onto the scrapbook page. You can also scan or photograph the letter and use it like a photo or element on your page. The postage stamp photo frames further enhance the letter feel. Place photos of your little one writing their letter, chatting with Santa or opening gifts from their wish list.

There are fun layers of paint to add some depth and oomph. It also provides a way to make your scrapbook papers look a little different, change them up a bit. Plus, I love the feel of paint because it reminds me of inking actual cards and scrapbook pages. It is just fun!

Dear Santa is on sale at 50% off. You can pick up this fun-filled template pack for only $2 between now and December 10, 2015.

My Heart is in Paris Free Template

I grew up in a military family and was lucky enough to spend time in Europe as a child and later as an adult. France has a special place in my heart. Probably more so because half my family heritage stems from France. And the other side of my family from England were some of the first colonists in the American colonies. Later generations would help lead the American forces in revolution.The French were a big part of that success.

When disaster strikes, I have to do something or I feel helpless. While watching the news and working on some future kits, I started to play around with a little template freebie. It is nothing fancy. Just a little bit of my heart which needed a little bit of balm tonight.

Please accept this simple template and offer prayers for all those impacted by the horrendous Paris terrorist attacks. Download links are by file type after the image.
