Play It Again and Badge of Honor

Fuss Free: Play It Again 12 and Fuss Free: Play It Again 13 are sets of templates that were formerly given away as freebees. Loaded with options from photo sizes to paper use and element layering, you'll find these templates are versatile enough to scrap a variety of moments in your life. Rotate, flip, minimize or maximize elements to make the template suit your needs.

In our lives these days, there are so many circumstances and experiences that we overcome. We aren't on a field of battle, but we are struggling nonetheless to achieve success. We might be fighting illness or pain, navigating difficult relationships, beginning new adventures with little knowledge or experience . . . and at the end, we carry our success as an invisible badge of honor. Fuss Free: Badge of Honor 3 and Fuss Free: Badge of Honor 4 are sets of templates created around badge shapes, and enhanced by multiple photo spots, clusters, and elements to help you document your special badges of honor. These templates are versatile and are a perfect start to your layouts about your achievements!

I've made some changes to my website so you can navigate to frequently accessed content quicker and easier, as well as allowing my weekly posts to remain clear of repeat material. Be sure to take a peek at the navigation bar, especially the FREEBEES tab. You'll have one place to see all the freebees available for the month. In addition, you'll see a tab for TUTORIALS and a tab for WATCH CHERYL SCRAP. Those will direct you to my YouTube channels where you can view tutorials on a variety of topics as well as videos detailing my digital scrapbooking process.

There are 12 days left in this month (including today), so there's still plenty of time left to jump in and join our monthly challenges. Each challenge you participate in earns you points, and the more points you collect, the larger the discount coupon you can earn (up to 35%). Also, one randomly selected challenge participant will get their challenge layouts for the month printed at Persnickety Prints! As if that wasn't enough, this month I've been watching the September Template Challenge and if I see that my template is used for the challenge, I've been giving a sweet little RAK too! Looking forward to seeing your pages!!!

Join me on Thursday, September 25, 2014, at 10 pm EST for another Scrappy Hour! I'll be chatting with Kami of Ziggle Designs and Chelle of Chelle's Creations, and this week we'll be taking your questions about digital scrapbooking using Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. So get your questions ready and join us in the Adobe Connect Chat Room! See you then!

I'm delighted to have the opportunity to give away one FREE registration to The Busy Parents Guide To Digital Scrapbooking With Melissa Peterson Marti at Scrapaneers!
