Red/white is a great scrapbook combination. I used the Proud 2B Canadian kit for a recent trip to Canada and had everything I needed to complete the project quickly. The BEST part of this kit is that the red/white combination works with so many other layouts as well. It's a great kit and would be a great addition to your collection.

BTW... I did not get paid to promote the kit. I really want to praise the designers whose work has really helped accomplish my goals.

I'm still hunting for scrapbook kits to purchase that fit a new project that I have coming up. I found a color scheme that I thought represents the character of the project.

Does anyone have tips on how to search for digi kits with a specific color scheme in mind?

Does anyone happen to know of a kit that you can share a link to that has these colors in it?  

If you have a kit that are these colors, please let me know. I've very interested and eager to start scrapbooking!!!

I am actually making a few things that might be of use. I feel inspired! And all because of this discussion we have been having.
:)
Plus, I love those colors, and always will.
I will shortly be posting a few 12 x 12 backgrounds, along with some 8.5 x 11 ones that you might choose to use, all matching your colors.
By tonight, they should be ready!
:)
I attribute routinely, as we have to obey copyright laws, but these can be a royal pain to figure out. Some countries require one thing, while others require something else. Royal. Pain. That's why the Studio's blog tries always to keep it simple for the guests.
Obsidiandawn.com has some really wonderful brushes, as does Brusheezy.com, but we still need to keep people's copyrights. It can get rather complicated, can't it?
Be on the lookout for new things, all inspired by our chat!
And thanks!
:)

I'm in need of ideas for 80s kits that are available for purchase. I liked the idea of the "Before I Was Your Mom, I Survived Teens" because o the different embellishments that were noted in the 80s. I didn't like the color scheme, but I might be able to change it a bit (tone down the vibrancy to fit the tones of the photos I have). 

Any ideas y'all have would be SOO insanely helpful

Here's a little tip on how not to write an email to someone you discover in an online tree doing research on a potential common ancestor. What do you think?

The Worldwide indexing event has started and runs until next Friday. Please find the time to index at least one batch. I just did my batch and it was the New Hampshire Civil War Pension records. They're fairly straight forward (for the most part) and involve finding the name, birth place, enlistment date and place, and age.

I love that some records even have the physical description of the man enlisting. Can you imagine the value of these Civil War enlistment records? Can you imagine discovering your ancestor in such a record and then seeing that they were gray eyed, light hair, and fair complexion and about 5'7"? It is so exciting. I hope such records exist for my relatives in Kentucky and Ohio and that others will index the records I need!   #fuelthefind   #indexing   #genealogy

Fab Find Alert: This Proud 2B Canadian kit was perfect for my Canadian Vacation project. The red/white combination has also worked well for other scrapbook layouts. This kit is well designed and worth picking up!! #digiscrapbooking   #fabfinds

The LDS church is doing it's part to help leaders lead on family history. It's up to leaders to learn and pray to know how to incorporate this principles. 
FamilySearch.org is the source for many valuable family history resources, but LDS.org is the source for information about the interaction of the members and family history within the Church organization. LDS.org does not dup...

Did you cut your photos into collages before you knew to preserve the original digitally? Well, this layout shows you how you can downplay your poor judgement of by gone days! #scrapbooking   #collages

One great way I discover my family ancestry is to take my research and write the stories of my ancestor's lives. I have discovered 5 new-to-me stories in the process. 
I have shared several tips and strategies for starting the process of writing a family narrative, an essay about the folks on your family tree. In writing these life sketches, I have uncovered several stories that I didn't kn...
