A Reel Mess Template Pack Now in Shop

I am absolutely thrilled about this week's new template pack. It started off as a test....could I take something we love in digi world and make it seem more realistic. If you are anything like me, you like to grunge things up in your scrapbook. So a digital tearing I went and now I have torn reel frames!

A Reel Mess is a fun way to add something of a grunge element to your layouts. You have the torn reels, but also some paint layers on top of the photo, as well as the background paper.

A Reel Mess is on sale at 50% off, so only $2 until March 17, 2016.

Here are a few layouts from my creative team:

I hope you enjoy this template pack as much as I do!

New Template Release Day & iNSD Events

First weekend of March and we have a lot going on at GDS. First up, I have two new template packs in the shop. They are on sale for $2 each until March 10th. Take a look at these fun packs


My mother always loved kaleidoscopes, so we had these toys as children. I was playing around in Photoshop one day and realized I had created a partial kaleidoscope. I couldn't stop there...I just had to develop a template kit. So we have Kaleidoscope! Now this is a fun way to put together a one-photo layout.

Side Step

Side Step was inspired by the magazine editorial layout look. I loved the symmetry being interrupted by one piece. I actually created a template for the March Scrap Your Stash in this style and decided I wanted a full kit.

This weekend the shop is celebrating iNSD. This is the international Scrapbook Day. Many of the shops are 40% off, including my shop. Here is an overview of what we have going on at the shop:

There is a scavenger hunt going on where you can collect all the pieces to the My Happy Place collab. Check out the clues and download all the parts. Here is what the collab looks like:

Here is my part of the collab you will find:

There is also a FWP collab, Harmony:

Here is my part of the collab:

Have a great time collecting and playing. If you create a layout with one of my new templates, please show it off on the LissyKay Facebook page. Now I am running off to go be a speech/debate only child is in the middle of qualifiers for nationals. I get to be a nervous wreck!

Enjoy your weekend!

March Scrap Your Stash Template Challenge Freebie

Happy March! It is time for a new challenge over at GDS. The Scrap Your Stash challenge comes with a free template for you to participate. This month the template focuses on using journal cards in your layouts in a way they were not originally intended. You can use them for titles and quotes on your scrapbook page. Here is the template you can download over in the challenge forum thread.

If you complete this challenge, you will receive my part of the Legacy of Love collab. All you do is make a layout with the free template, post it in the gallery and the challenge thread. Then on April 1st, I will send out my collab part to you.

I hope you have fun playing with these templates! Here is a little inspiration from my creative team using the challenge template. There is even a page I made!
