This is my favorite release because there are just SO many darn good templates in these packs. How can you top 16 templates for this low price?! And believe me, this pack in particular has it all- single photo templates to show off those gorgeous pics that require the spotlight, to multi-photo templates that help you scrap those times when you just CAN'T narrow down the photos you want to scrap!
And now for some Trixie Scrap Star inspiration using these templates:
This one by Shauna is so soft and tender. I love the sweet photo with the row of flowers and fun journaling below.
This layout by Stacey has such a big and awesome title. This is an area I lack talent in, so I love seeing those fab titles. I also love the strip down the side with the stars and buttons.
This layout by Lori is so fun, I love the rope frame, her use of all the great elements - the anchor cluster at the bottom is just adorable- and the awesome journaling. This template in particular leaves a lot of good space for journaling.
So there you have it! A quick little peek into this expansive template pack from the dynamic Tracy and Connie duo. You can find it in any of the Trixie Scraps stores linked below.

Hi all, Shauna here and it is time for another Challenge Thursday. This week we are having a scraplift challenge. I went through the gallery here at Trixie Scraps and found a layout I that I really liked and that I thought would work for all kinds of photos. I chose "i love you" by our own CT lead Ms. Bree!!!! Here is the layout
I love how hers looked with the worn papers, but I love Trixie’s new kit called Day of Grace so much that I just had to use it for my layout.
And here are some created by my fellow Stars.
Jamie B used Dye Job for this one.
And our most wonderful leader Ms. Trixie herself did this one also using Day of Grace.

Save it to your computer in the My Documents>My PSP>Scripts Restricted file. Now to make scrapping even easier, in your program, you should be able to go to View>Toolbars>Script and it should look like this
now if for some reason it doesn't, you will have to go to File>Script>Run
and then choose the script, Jen's template fill 1, like this
now you must make sure to place the paper/photo in the layer directly above the layer you wish to attach it to, but it will also leave that blank layer, so be sure to delete it.
Now, if you want to put a patterned paper or crop down a photo and want to make sure that it is placed how you like it, simply reduce the opacity of the layer so you can see through to the layer underneath.
That's it! You can duplicate/delete any layers you wish, add shadows and finishing touches! You get a great page in alot less time!
I used a rotated template from the Star Struck: Vol 9 Bree and Day of Grace by Trixie Scraps

Then, I cut out the eggs and folded them in half, folding the patterned side inside. Adhere three of the eggs together to create a 3D egg
Next, I folded over 1/2 inch of the green paper and created a fringe for grass
Finally, I assembled the card by first adhering the grass fringe and then attaching the 3D eggs before embellishing with flowers, ribbon and a title

Welcome to another edition of the Sunday Spotlight! You may know that Trixie Scraps is now available at Pickleberry Pop! I was recently browsing the galleries and noticed some fantastic layouts by Mother Bear and decided I needed to know more about her! Here's what I found out:
Tell us a little about yourself
How did you start digiscrapping?
I saw on your Pickleberry Pop profile that you are one busy lady - family, work, Creative Team commitments?.... When do you find the time to scrap?
I see a lot of cute little faces in your layouts. Who or what inspires your pages?
Some people love to use buttons on their layouts; others love ribbons or greenery. Do you have a favorite type of element to use?
How did you find Trixie Scraps?
This layout really popped out at me from your gallery. I just love the arrangement, and your layering and clustering blew me away.
What are a few of your favorite Trixie Scraps layouts?
Do you have a favorite Trixie kit?
Is there something funny or strange or unique about yourself you'd like to share?
One last question, pirates or ninjas?
I hope you've enjoyed learning a little bit about Julie, aka Mother Bear. Thanks so much for taking some time out of your busy schedule to chat with me, Julie!!

Isn't this a fun kit???
In case you need a little inspiration, here are a couple amazing layouts by our very own fabulous designer, Tracy!!
I love all the paper layers here, and those starburst elements really add that little extra punch to the page.
I just love the group of photos showing him working hard on that plane, and he looks so happy when he got it all figured out;) lol Besides the photos, Ijust love all her layering and the title looks great.
Now, if that wasn't enough, here are a few others by some of our own Scrap Stars.
First up is this great layout by Stacy.
I really like the planet and circle elements going across the page, it really caught my eye.
Next is one by Laina.
The large circle cut out really looks great on this page. It draws your eye right to that adorable pic, and her title is just too cute!
Last, but definitely not least, how can we not do a Buzz Lightyear page with this space kit?? So, here is one Jamie shared with us.
Again, I thought the title for this page was very creative, and all her paper layering and element clustering looks great. I really like the planets scattered around the page.
We definitely have some amazing layout artists on this team. Their layouts are always an inspiration to me as I hope they are the same for you:)
