11.24.15 O Holy Night

Have you thought about making a Christmas card this year? Making a digital card with Chelle’s Classic kit O Holy Night is as easy as 1-2-3. First, you’ll need the kit. Second, you’ll need the word art. Finally, you’ll need a cute family snapshot. You can make your creation digitally and then order custom cards printed at any number of retail printers.

Karen has a digital scrapbooking page to show us that she made with O Holy Night and the coordinating word art. I love what she did with the hint of sheet music in the cluster of elements around her frame. Take a look!  fdd_ffMM3_tp3_600

Now take a second look back at her page. I think her layout would make a fantastic Christmas card to send out to her friends and family. She could switch out the photo with one from the current year and change the date on the page, then crop the entire page to whatever card size she wanted and she would have a professional card for the year, custom made.

Want to play? Here’s the kit and the word art in the market.



11.09.15 Midnight Crow

Today we’re taking a look at a classic Chelle’s Creation kit called Midnight Crow. It’s got the cutest fall color scheme and elements of any kit on the market. Those crows are adorable! Take a look at what Chelle’s creative team has come up with for us.

First, Jenny had the terrific idea of using a vertical layout for all her goodies on the page. I love the thought of “fall” falling down the page, and this kit is perfect for her pumpkin patch photo. Pumpkinpatch2015Tinci_CEAF_5_web

Next, Kayla shared a page with us that is a large photo of her daughter in a pumpkin patch. Take a really close look at it – Chelle’s elements are so life-like I found it difficult to pick out what was in the photo and what was an element Kayla added to the page. PumpkinPatch_Oct13_web

Finally, Jenn gave us this bright and cheerful fall page. I love the yellow background that brings out the bright and sunny fall day featured in her photos. And look at that crow peaking out up top. Isn’t he the best? fall fun

10.13.15 Teacher’s Pet

Today I want to feature Kimberly, a member of Chelle’s Creations CT who was a devoted customer even before she joined Chelle’s team. One thing that was always important to her was how useful the kit was for her. Being able to USE the kit is extremely important. Teacher’s Pet is right up her ally. When asked to submit a layout for this blog post, she gave me five layouts! That’s one of the best things about Chelle’s Creations. Her kits are easily mixable and matchable and can be used over and over again.

Take a look at what Kimberly created with this one kit. She has First Day of School pictures, Kindergarten, and even a high school picture all scrapped with Teacher’s Pet. I love how she leans toward the orange papers and elements in the kit. Take a close look, and see if you can find all the ways she used chalk on her pages.


You can find the basic kit here, but don’t miss the bundle. It includes the journal cards that are so very useful on a variety of pages, and a special block letter alpha.



Here’s a look back at a classic kit from Chelle’s Creation celebrating everyone from the tumbling toddlers to the elite competition gymnasts in our lives. The Gymnastics kit is a collaborative kit by Chelle and mle Card with lots of brightly colored papers and hand rendered elements. But check out the digital scrapbooking pages Chelle’s CT members have created. I’ll show you three pages using the same kit, and you’ll be surprised at the variety.

First, Kimberly has a daughter who does tumbling lessons and classes every day because she is a competition cheerleader in her high school. I’ve seen her in real life, and she is amazing. But, Kimberly’s scrapbooking skills are equal the task of capturing her daughter’s great moves. She used a layer mask on her large photo to mask away the bottom corner of her photo so she could tuck it behind the ribbon on the quick page (sold separately but made from parts and pieces of the kit). She even included a QR code which you can scan with your phone to see a video of her in action. The QR code comes out with a white background, so she used a blending mode on the yellow paper she clipped over the QR code. 2013_04-gymSwL_Feb2015SOTemplate2_zpsksbkfpol

Next, Jenny took the same kit and made a layout that has nothing to do with tumbling, and yet the kit is absolutely the best choice. The bright colors and stars in the kit were a perfect match for her children, the stars of her show. I love the flow of movement down the page with the photos arranged vertically on the layered ribbons and clusters of flowers and stars. Cabin2015fdd_ffLABR2_tp2_web

Finally, Jenn chose to use the neutral colors in the kit for her page. The tan paper and green stitched border are a great match for her outdoor photos. But the jumbled arrangement of the letters in the title caught my eye. They seem to pop off the page and complement her tumbling subject perfectly. tumble

Here’s a closer look at the kit in the market, but don’t miss the quickies or the bundle for a real bargain. cc_mle_gymnastics_kit


9.01.2015 Give me Liberty!

We’re taking a look at a classic digital scrapbooking kit in Chelle’s Creations store called Liberty, perfect for the 4th of July, or a visit to any number of patriotic sites. Let’s take a look at how her Creative Team has used this kit.

First, Jan had some photos from a visit to the Liberty Bell, so Chelle’s bundle was absolutely the best match for her memories. I love the way she used the word art for her title and the alpha for her subtitle. freedom ring

Next, Mel made a double page layout for her photos of the July 4th celebration. Her use of the banner to hold all the photos is terrific, and the weight of the pictures below the strip of paper is balanced with the title above.  4th-of-July-2015

Next, Jenny had one special photo of her little guy watching the July 4th parade, and the greens in her photo are picked up by the green elements in the kit. Aren’t those little smiley-faced stars the cutest? 4thofJuly2013Tinci_Freedom_1_web

Finally, I have a page of my own to show you. Rarely do I post my pages, but this kit was such a perfect kit for a fun day of Jury Duty I had this week, that I just had to scrap the page right away and share it. By the way, I used a template from Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs for my page as well as Chelle’s Liberty bundle. WheelsOfJusticeWEB

Here’s a closer look at the kit and the bundle in the market. The images are linked. cc_libertycc_liberty_bundle


Classics – Fleur De Violette and Creme de la Peche

Hi there digital scrapbooking fans! Have I got a treat for you! Today we’re featuring not one but two of Chelle’s Creations classic kits that are full of summery goodness and flowery happiness.

First, let’s take a look at Donna’s page that showcases the flowers in her garden. The kit and Donna’s photos are such a perfect match it looks like Chelle visited Donna just to create this kit. First, I’ll show you Donna’s page, and then you’ll see a preview of Chelle’s kit (which is linked to the market). I Love that bow Donna attached to the title. It’s the perfect touch!



Next, is Jenny’s page who has used Creme de la Peche to match her baby’s photos. The soft peach color and flower clusters are adorable with her beautiful photos. That word art she used for the title is also available in the market in a set of golden titles here. Aubrey3monthscc_layitonthere_template_doubles_20_web cc_cremedelapeche


Magical Minis

Are you aware Chelle’s Creations has a couple of fabulous mini kits that are perfect for your Disney digital scrapbooking projects? They are compact and yet completely full of magical goodness for your photos from the happiest place. But they are versatile enough to be used for a variety of themes. Chelle’s CT had the minis Mickey Mouse Club March {sampler} and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious {Sampler} and they combined them to make a couple of example pages for you.

First Jan made a page of her photos of the Disney character statues at Disneyland. I love the combination of colors and patterns she chose for her background papers. jan-mmcm-supercali

Take a look at Christine’s page. She made a non-Disney page and look how creatively she formed the border. Do you recognize the shape she used? Pretty magical, I think. t68rc7

Here’s a closer look at the two mini kits in the market. Just remember, you don’t have to go to the World or the Land to use these awesome little bargains.




Bug Town

We’re looking back through our digital scrapbooking stash of Chelle’s Creations goodies today. Chelle’s CT has been playing with Bug Town and some of her Little People. Check out what they have for you!

First, Donna did a spectacular job preserving her memories of her special little people collecting Love Bugs. They’re a nuisance to us, but they are fun to the littles. She used At the Park {little people} with our featured minikit Bug Town. She also used one of Chelle’s templates, Lay It On There 3. web_djp332_Bugtown

Krista also had a play but used fewer papers and colors from the kit. I love how she got a totally different look from the Bug Town bundle and recolored the alpha and the frame to achieve the look she wanted. By the way, she also used the At the Park {little people}.

I’m seeing a lot of Chelle’s Little People on pages lately. I love how they add extra interest to any page.

Liberty and Scrapbooking for ALL!

Did you celebrate the 4th in style this year? What about our friends overseas – do you celebrate your patriotic holidays with a bang? I love the July 4th celebrations in the USA, and I love that Chelle has the perfect classic kit to use to scrapbook my memories. It’s a mini-kit called Liberty and the Lady herself is even included, but there are coordinating items in the store ( an alpha, and word art ) but you’ll save money if you buy the bundle. But don’t let the name of the kit make you think it’s got tunnel vision; it’s great for a variety of uses. Chelle’s creative friends have made a couple of pages to show you how they used the kit this year.

First, Jenn scrapped her family memories about the Liberty Belle boat in her area. The brass and green accent colors in the kit work great with her photo of the paddleboat on the water.  liberty belle

Next, Donna shows us a picture of her daughter and son-in-law waving an American flag at her city’s celebration. The kit is perfect for images as this. Note she has used the word art for her title.

Next year, I’m planning to celebrate Independence Day at Ft. Bragg with my family there. I can’t wait to hear the cannons fire during the 1812 Overture and you can bet I’ll have photos to scrapbook with this great classic kit Liberty.


Classics: Heroes

Today we’re taking a look back at a digital scrapbooking bundle that is a collaboration between Chelle’s Creations & Dream Big Designs. It’s a bundle that shows the hero in all the Police, Firefighters, and EMTs who serve to protect us. All our children have been excited about meeting these special public servants at one time or another, and this collab is full of the perfect digital papers and elements needed to preserve those fun memories and more. The bundle includes kits for Police, Firefighters, and EMT that can also be purchased separately, but check out the extras included in the bundle. I have a couple of layouts to show you from the CT. They chose to use the Fire part of the bundle mostly.

First, Jen had some special photos of her little guy visiting the Fire Department. I love the cluster she made on the lower left.


Next, Krista made a double page with Chelle’s Creations template “Lay it on There {Doubles} 15 & 16” as well as the Fire part of the Heroes Bundle. She shows us that this product is not just for fun photos of our children but also works really well for documenting more serious events. I’ll show you the double page spread first, but then take a look in detail in the individual pages posted after the full double. Her photos are spectacular, and I love the title work she did with the cluster anchoring the title to the photos on the page. ScogginsValleyFire_ ScogginsValleyFireL_ScogginsValleyFireR_

You can find the bundle and the individual Hero kits in the market at Scrap Orchard. I’ll put them here and link to the market for your convenience.
