Freebie Number Crunchers Template & NSD Grab Bag

When I set out to create a layout, I first look to see how many pictures I want to put on the page. My next step is to find a template that works for the same number of photos. However, it can be really time consuming to sort through my templates to try to figure out how many pictures each template was designed to accommodate. I wanted to come up with a solution to make scrapping by the numbers a bit easier.

Enter my new template series--Number Crunchers. Each Number Cruncher pack contains 4 templates based around a certain number of photos. For NDS I will be releasing Number Cruncher packs 1-5.

But I have a preview for you!  I am one of those shoppers that has to try before I buy. So I thought I'd give you a sample of one of my Number Crunchers templates. This quality-checked 300DPI 12x12 template, which coordinates with Number Crunchers Trios, will be free from May 1st-May 15th, 2016 and is available in PSD, TIF and PNG formats:


Like all of my templates, this freebie is PU/S4H/S4O/CT/CU friendly so you can feel comfortable using it for any of your CU or CT work.

Please note:  This freebie has expired but you can now grab it free with your purchase of the Number Crunchers: Trios template pack in my store here.

And if you like it, be sure to take advantage of my NSD Numbers Cruncher Grab Bag!  You can purchase the entire collection for just $5!


This special has expired but you can now grab each pack individually in my store.

New Release & Freebie: "It's What's Inside" Russian Nesting Doll Kit

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years. ― Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn knew that true beauty comes from the inside. And now you can celebrated that beauty that is within you and the women that you love with the charming Russian nesting doll themed digital scrapbooking collection "It's What's Inside." Perfect for scrapping everyday and special moments in your life, "It's What's Inside" is the latest Bits N Pieces offering from Joyful Expressions.  And you can grab it for just $1 per pack through May 7th.


Here's a look at the "It's What's Inside" element pack:


This portion of the "It's What's Inside" collection contains 60 unique items including:
  • 1 banner

I loved the bright colors and whimsical nesting dolls of this kit so much that I used it for my Featured Designer layout:


And while I was gathering inspiration for this kit, I came across an adorable Matryoshka-themed Mother's Day card.  It inspired me to create some Mother's Day journal cards that you could use as printables for cards for your mom.  You can pick up these matching "What's Inside" freebie Mother's Day journal cards on my Facebook page:
