Hybrid Templates

You can view all of my products in my store at ScrapMatters.

For the blog train I have created for you two printable cards as well as some word art. The word art can be used on the cards or they would work great on a layout as well.

You have come from Grandma's Templates: and your next stop is to grab some fabulous word art from Elegant Word Art by Bethany at 

If you are wanting to start back at the start just head here to the LDS Blog Train page.

Here is a peek at MOST of the stops on the train... so be sure to keep going or start back at the top if you jumped on board along the way.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another great template!

Hippity Hoppity Easter is on its way!

Pin It

Easter is only 9 days away, but even if you don't celebrate Easter - spring is here (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). This cute little bunny is sure to make anyone smile. 


This cute little printable bunny is a collaboration with Chelle's Creations and comes ready to assemble in two different ways.  The first printable is 100% done - simply print, score, cut, fold up and use some adhesive. I recommend terrifically tacky tape the 1/4" size works great for most projects.  The second printable is 90% ready you will cut the ears out separately as well as the tail. I recommend that you put a cotton ball or something similar for the tail to add some extra character to it.  I also inked the edges with a light pink to give it some more definition.

This is a GREAT first hybrid project if you have not tried hybrid before - what an easy (and cute) way to start!

For those who are not digital scrapbookers I have also included Word files for both of these bunnies - simply open the Word file and print it out on card stock. Included in the download are some hybrid tips as well.  Also another great place to find out more about hybrid projects is in the hybrid boot camp section at ScrapMatters.

I would love to see your finished bunnies so leave a comment with the link to the gallery you posted it in.

While I don't post to much personal stuff over here I do have to share that we went to NYC for our anniversary this past weekend and had a blast. For those of you who shared information over at ScrapMatters - THANK YOU!!! 

See you next week with another fabulous project!

Today is EGGstra special!

Pin It

I have had this ready for a couple weeks now - I am so excited to share it and all the great examples too!  I love spring time - the flowers bloom and the color comes back to things. Spring starts next week with Easter just a couple weeks after that so start working on something fun for your kids, girl friends, teachers etc. This egg basket is so cute and easy (and quick) to make that you can do a bunch up in no time.
and to go with this I have Egg Templates
You might ask why I did not just include them with Egg Baskets and that is because it will work for so many things other than just the Egg Baskets. These will work great for layouts too.

But you can get the Egg Templates FREE with your purchase of Egg Baskets until the 18th!
There is no need to put the Egg Templates in your cart they will automatically be included in your download files.

And now for what my CT has come up with!

and here are mine:
also uses the Egg Templates


Hope you have a fabulous week. My hubby and I are going to celebrate our 12th Anniversary next weekend on a little trip, and leaving the girls here at home (don't worry not alone!). Not to worry I have something ready for next week and I just think they turned out so cute!
