MOC | MONTH OF CHALLENGES DAY 6 SCRAPPABLE STACKABLES

This years MOC 8 is up and running, were nearing the end of week 1 with 6 challenges already up our sleeves. Day 6 is a big day because its all about customising the free MOC 2020 SCRAPPABLE STACKABLES TEMPLATE and making it your own.

If you’ve never scrapped with one of our templates nows your chance. You can grab the free MOC template by clicking on the image below and be sure to join Carol aka lowan in completing the Day 6 Challenge HERE.

I did some snooping through The Lilypad Gallery and found so many amazing pages. Below are a selection I  grabbed to show how differently people have customised the template to make it a unique design yet still reminiscent of the original template. They are great examples of how you can really change up any template to suit your needs.

COLD HANDS WARM HEART COLLECTION & ARTFUL STARTERS NO.2

It’s that time of the year, one of the greatest events in digi land is upon us.....cue drum roll....woohoo its the Black Friday Sales! I know right, that’s come around quickly and I sooooo know I’ll be enjoying some of the awesome specials, watch out hip pocket. To jump into the fun I’m excited to tell you that I have a couple of awesome products to share with you. Firstly a very pretty collection I collaborated on with Jenn of Simple Pleasure Designs and I also have a brand spanking new template pack that many of you requested, so of course Lynn and I had to get this one sorted for you all! Hehe 

So lets get started and have a look at the collection!

Here’s COLD HANDS WARM HEART, a colourful dedication to the beauty of winter and the splendour of a snow filled sparkly wonderland. For those of you that get to enjoy snow fall, I’m wildly jealous haha and whilst daunting at first I ended up having so much fun collaborating on this theme with Jenn, it gave me a taste at least in my imagination of what its like. But what I love about this collection is that it still works for those of us that live in warmer climates as it has a festive feel. With a little creative play you’ll be creating all kinds of pages and we have some great examples by the team showcasing just that!
The collection includes a kit bursting with 120 elements, 32 papers and 2 Alphas, one being a deliciously sweet cookie inspired style the other an acetate see-thru style inspired by icicles and snow. You’ll also find some cute hand drawn sketches of winter motifs by Jenn and a pack of deliciously grungy textures, paints and others mixed media elements by moi, both packs perfect for laying down some textured backgrounds and pops of cuteness. There are also plenty of Journal Cards and pocket fillers for those of us that love to create pocket pages and last but not least a mixed array of stunning wordart, really nifty for creating wintery titles!
I also have a second release of ARTFUL STARTERS that Lynn Grieveson and I collaborated on. I love Lynn’s kits so to be able to design templates using her amazing product is a dream come true. Here is ARTFUL STARTER No.2 ready to document those recipes, fun festive events and perfect for displaying ephemera and other collected memories along the way. The pack includes an art journal/ travel document style page with lots of pockets to fill and papers to tuck in. It also includes 3 extra clusters perfect for customising your own pages. If you love to showcase bits and pieces from your travels or family events then this set is perfect for you.
How pretty were those pages. Before you go don’t forget to grab your freebie gifts, I have a mini that coordinates with Cold Hands Warm Heart and a pack of hand drawn festive pretties that I created on my iPad.
Have a great weekend, I hope you enjoy my freebies and find some awesome digi goodies in the BLACK FRIDAY SALES!
Hugs Em x

The subtle greys of the cloudy skies are a promise of some rain ahead. There are soft tones of yellow and burnt umber hinting at the Autumn change in the air but also lends itself to the weather changes that Spring brings. 

The stacks are so pretty and with a Title, Photo Cluster, Border and 12X12 template in the pack already done for you, they are so nifty for the time savvy not forgetting to mention perfect for those Autumnal or Spring photos in your stash that need scrapping.
