Wednesday Wisdom

0 comments
Welcome to another Wednesday on the Trixie Scraps blog.

Not only is it the start of a new month, it is also the start of a brand new series of posts. Welcome to Wednesday Wisdom!

Every other Wednesday we will be sharing with you an inspirational quote that you can use in your scrapping. I am super excited about this because I love using quotes to keep me uplifted and inspired.

The quote I chose for today is:
"People who don't cherish their elderly have forgotten whence they came and whither they go."
- Ramsey Clark

I chose this quote as we recently celebrated my grandma's 95th birthday! I wanted a good quote that said everything I couldn't. Without my grandma, I wouldn't be half the person I am today. She is a perfect reminder of where I came from and where I want to go.

Here's my layout. I used the kit God Gave Me You and a template from the After The Rain template pack.

 What can you use this quote for? We'd love to know. Share it with us in the gallery.

Masters Monday: Making the Most of your Templates

0 comments
Good morning Trixie Scraps fans!  Stacey here to help you get the most from your templates.  I personally love to change up the templates I use and make them my own.  You can easily flip, rotate, resize, add to, or remove from them.  Each week, Trixie has a great pack on sale for just $2 and you take an already fantastic deal and make even more pages by utilizing this.

I decided to use a template from the A Banner Day vol 1 Template Pack.  I picked the bottom left template.


I decided to rotate it clockwise and not change most of the design.  I used My Brother, My Pal by North Meets South Studios


Now, for my next page I kept the template the way it was but removed a bunch of layers and shrunk it down a bit.  I also decided to use just one larger picture instead of the three smaller ones.  I used Best Year Ever by Trixie Scraps.


I love that I was able to create two great pages, that don't look the exact same.  I hope I have inspired you to break out some older templates and change them up to get even more pages out of your stash!

Please share your pages with us in the Trixie Scraps Gallery!

Saturday With The Stars {Star Struck Templates}

0 comments
Welcome to another Saturday with the Stars! Today, I've picked a few of Trixie's Star Struck template packs (inspired by her Creative Team Members' original page designs) to highlight.  I love to see the variety of kits the team has used and how they've customized the templates for their pages!

The first template pack is called Star Struck Volume 18: Jan:


I rotated the photo spot on one of the templates and just love the result:


Carrin used the same template and used three photos instead of one on this gorgeous page:


The next set is called Star Struck Volume 19: StaceyA:


I love what Berniek did with these two templates!  The patterned papers and her clusters are just fantastic!



I hope these templates give you some inspiration.  I can't wait to see what YOU do with them!

October Desktop Freebie

0 comments
Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  I'm sure you don't need any reminders with how fast the year is slipping away.  It's just about time for you to change your desktop calendars for the new month.  I used the Sweetened with Gratitude kit, coordinating glitter papers and bonus alphas.  I hope you enjoy it!
