Lipstick Jungle QP freebie

Do you have a wild child? Or are you perhaps a wild child yourself? Ah, now come on, I think we all have a bit of a wild side now and then, don’t we? That’s what makes life fun and interesting! You know what else? It makes our scrapbooks interesting too! I’m glad you stopped by today because I happen to have a sweet little treat for you (but you probably knew that because it’s Saturday, right, and at WLS, every Saturday is a freebie day, hooray!). This week I put together a QP for you, one that allows you to let your wild side shine a bit. I used the kit Lipstick Jungle from WLS designer Lisa Joy. You can find Lipstick Jungle here in Lisa’s shop. While you’re there, be sure to check out her other stuff too, and stay tuned because as one of our newest designers, Lisa is sure to have lot’s of new goodies in store in the very near future. To download the QP, just click on the preview below. Thanks for stopping in today and have a great day! Jen

Creative Team Spotlight

This week I am featuring CT sarawhithers in the Creative Team Spotlight. You can check out her gallery here….

Here is a little interview I did with that will help you get to know her a bit better…

1. Tell us a bit about you….
My real name is Jennifer, even though my username is sarahwhithers. The story behind that is Sarah Whithers was my fake name. the one I used to give to guys who asked for my name and number and I didn’t want them to have my real info. Haha! It just kinda stuck on as my computer alias since then.
I’m 31 years old and live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I’m not married and no kids but I have a boyfriend, AJ of over 6 years, and 2 cats, Gwen and Link who pretty much are my kids. I love reading and music and of course scrapbooking!
I’ve been scrapbooking since September 2005 and got into digital scrapbooking shortly after in April 2006. Now I pretty much only do digital, it’s just so easy to clean up and of course, who doesn’t love an undo button?! :)

2. What would you say your style of scrapping is?
Hmm, this is a hard one. I’m not sure what it would be categorized as but I love bright colours and white space on my pages. So i guess contemporary could be the right way to describe them.

3. Who or what is your biggest inspiration when it comes to scrapping?
I’d prob say my cats, Gwen and Link just cuz they are so fun to scrap! They make any page look good when they’re in them!

4. What are your favorite type of kits? Least favorite?
I love bright coloured kits and fun elements. I’m a sucker for those cutesy elements. haha! My least fav would prob be the vintage-like kits just cuz I don’t know what I’m doing with them. They’re beautiful, but just not into my style I guess.

5. What program do you use?
I currently use Adobe Photoshop CS3 and on occasion I have used GIMP.

She sent me this adorable photo of her “babies” Gwen and Link and I just had to share it with you….

And last not least, here are some of her beautiful layouts….

So why don’t you head over to the With Love Studio Gallery and leave her a little bit of love!

Once in a Lifetime Photographs

Since my son was born, I bet I have hundreds and hundreds of photos that I have taken of  him.Sometimes I get shots that I cannot believe that I actually took the picture, they actually look half like a proffesional took them. This is one such photo. It is one of my favorite…come on dig deep and show some of your fave pictures.

Freebie weekend!

Hi there, Jen here, thanks for stopping by! Have you recovered from the holiday hullabaloo yet? If you’re anything like me, you wish the “hullabaloo” lasted a bit longer (read – more vacation!). But alas, it’s back to work and back to school. Happily, for many of us, it also means back to scrapping, a hobby which goes by the wayside during busy times like Christmas and New Years. Did you collect lots of new photos? I sure did! Today, I’d like to share a fun and jolly kit with you. No, it’s not a Christmas kit. It’s a New Year’s kit called Up Til Midnight. It was designed by one of the newest designers here at With Love Studio – Shmooangel Designs. You can find Up Til Midnight here at WLS. And below is a layout I made using the kit.


Isn’t it fun? You know what else is fun? A freebie of course! I have just the thing for your New Years’ photos created using Up Til Midnight. Just click on the image below to download. And, be sure to leave a little thank you for Shmooangel Designs! Enjoy everyone. See you back here next Saturday for another WLS freebie.
