Template 41!

Wow! Can you believe that we are halfway through the bonanza? Only 34 more templates for you to collect until we get to the album at the end!

It feels so good to be home! Jon went to church this morning, and I stayed here with the girls. I just could not make E endure any more time running. I went out and spent more time in the garden. Grass has now become my nemesis! The area that we are planting in was yard just a couple months ago, so all the grass is not completely gone. As soon as my plants are good and healthy, I am planning to put newspaper down between the rows and mulch on top of it. Until then, I will just deal with it. It rained almost every day while we were gone, and my plants have gone crazy! My beans especially have taken off. I spent several hours out there today thinning them all out. My corn has also done really well so far, and is about 18 inches tall! I will get out there and take some pics soon!

Here is the template:

We're Home!

Whew. That was a trip!! No tickets or accidents to report, and in general it was a nice, boring trip. We spent the night in Nashville last night, and went to Opry Mills. There is a restaurant there called the Aquarium Restaurant, and it has a HUGE aquarium in the middle of it. The whole theme is fish, and Kyla LOVED it!! Erin could not stop just staring at the fish either. We left this morning and stopped in Pigeon Forge for lunch. After lunch, I insisted we stop at the huge scrapbooking store they have there. I was very disappointed to not find ANY digiscrap stuff. Pooh. I did get some good ideas while I was there though, so be on the look out!!

Here is the template for today! We are back to the 100 downloads and it's gone, so snag it while you can. This was inspired by my youngest sister's new challenge. Welcome, Marley(yes, she did name her new puppy Marley. I have NO clue why!)

Lots of Templates!

Hello! We go home tomorrow!!!!! We will leave here in the morning and spend the night in Nashville with my sister. We'll get up Saturday and be home that afternoon! WOOHOO!!! My own bed!!!! (BTW, here's a little life hint to stick in the back of your mind: If you purchase a wonderful super soft mattress for your home, you will never be completely comfortable when travelling, but going home will be FANTASTIC!!!)

It has been a good trip, even though little miss "I love to party all night" Erin has thrown a few wrenches in the plans. I do have a funny story to tell y'all, that only those who read my blog/spend their free time scrapping will understand fully! Yesterday, E was not being the most cooperative, so I stayed at the Inlaw's house for her to nap. Jon, K, and my MIL went to a neighbor's lake to fish. It was K's first time fishing, so I insisted that they take the camera. When they came home, I asked if he had remembered to take pics, and he kind of laughed. I was a bit worried, but didn't even have time to check out the pics. I looked at them today and they are pretty good, but I did not see areason for the laugh. I asked J about it, and he said that they were all packed up, and heading to the car when he remembered to take pics. He got a fishing pole back out, and posed K for the pics, just because he knew I would want to scrap them!!! Has he learned or what?!!!!

I am going to go ahead and post today and tomorrow's templates tonight. I don't know if I will have access at my sister's house tomorrow, so I will just leave them all up until we are home on Saturday(sat's may be up pretty late). Please pray for safe travels(and my sister's boyfriend, he is going to get the third degree tomorrow night!).

Template #34

Hello Digiworld! I am in a much better frame of mind today! It is amazing the difference that a good night's sleep makes. This morning was church, then we had a good country Memorial Day picnic. It is really interesting to see the difference with holidays in city life and country life. At home, noone really makes that big a deal about Memorial Day, here it is a HUGE observance. The only damper on the day was me having to bring a salad and grilled chicken and not eating any of the potluck food. This girl has NO CLUE what kind of sacrifices I am making for her!! She had better pick an AMAZING nursing home someday!!!

Here's today's Template!

There was a comment left about cutting the templates in half for printing. I do design the temps with cutting them in mind, but don't always keep everything out of the middle. I make sure the text does not cross, and only do a portion of the picture space across the 12 inch line. If you are concerned about an important portion of your picture being cut off, simply turn on your grid and rulers (View>Grid) and you can see where the measurements line up. Simply Yin also has a good guide on her page that you can check out HERE.

Don't forget the Memorial Day Sale, and I'll See you tomorrow!

Templates 29 and 30

Hi! You know, on paper this day does not sound too bad: Dr's appointment, lunch, pick up beef from butcher, naps, neighborhood meeting, stop at Target for diapers(since i am a cloth diaper flunky at the moment!), and get gas doesn't sound too bad. It's when you throw in the getting up early, taking two kids along for most of it(one of them being a nursing 5 month old), non-napping kids, and picking up my mom as an extra set of hands that it gets really crazy! Whew! We ordered 1/4 of a (grass fed, humanely treated)cow along with some other families, and yesterday was our day to pick it up. Our deep freeze is almost full! I am so excited about knowing where our beef comes from!

Howdy! Is it a problem when your three year old is pretending to talk on her cell phone, and she is telling "grandmama" all about her awesome trip to Ikea? She must think the place is the coolest! I go in there, and it seems like everything starts closing in on me, chanting "Buy me, Buy me." I try to shop by a list, but come out of that place with things I need, but didn't know I needed until I saw them! Besides, who can pass up 3 pairs of scissors for only 1.99?

Here's Saturday's for you!

The sale was fun last night! I found the entire kindergarten math curriculum for less than $20! Woohoo!

Today, we are off to (our brand new, shiny)Ikea to find some shelves and Kyla a new bed. She is still sleeping in the crib, although we took the side off of it more than a year ago. We just don't have a place to store it, so she has used it as her toddler bed. It's almost time to move Erin into the crib, so K needs a new bed.

Here's the template for you:

Template 24

Hello digiworld! I've had a very busy day here!! Want a momfession for the day? I realized as I was matching socks today, I have not matched socks since THANKSGIVING!!! The pair that has turkeys on it that I wore to T-day lunch was still in there! My poor hubby!! I told him about it when he got home from work, and he said he actually considered buying socks to make sure he had some! (I guess him actually matching them himself was not even on his radar! :) ) At least I do have the excuse that Erin was born 4 days later....

On to the template of the day! Here is #24, it is part of a set that I am almost ready to post, so grab it free while you can! I should have this set up later tonight.

Template 23!

It's Official. I am counting down to the end of pollen season! I went and got masks yesterday so I could work in the garden without inhaling everything and having a reaction. It worked great, and I was out there for almost 2 hours. Just as I was finishing, my hubby came to the back door with my cell phone. It was a call that I had been waiting on, so I sat on the edge of our fire pit(concrete block and brick, makes a great seat), took the mask off without thinking, and talked for about half an hour. Where's the anvil hitting itself in the head emoticon when I need it?!?! Needless to say, I've been pretty worthless today.

So, here's your template, and then I am off to sleep since Jon(Hubby) is now home and can corral the munchkins!

Template 23. This is one of the pages from the Helter Skelter Album. It is the only one that will be in the bonanza! If you want the full album, click on the album preview, and you can go to the store.


This download has Expired! Look for the album in the store!

The Album:


A little info about the template. I have added frames to the photo spaces in this template, but to save space, I have the frame and photo on the same layer. When I made the album, I added the frames so you can see the photo spaces clearly. There are three ways you can put in your photos:

1. Use the Magic Wand, Paste Into Selection method to insert your photos into the space and preserve the frame. (For more info on this method, see the first tutorial on my tutorial page)
2. Use each layer as a cutting mask, eliminating the frame. If you want to add a frame once you have used the clipping mask, I used the stroke, inside at 30 pixels for each frame.
3. Add a layer on top of each photo space, insert your picture there, and leave the frame visible below.

I Hope you enjoy this template! I am working on a gallery right now so you can share your layouts with TPI templates. Please email me if you want to share yours!

I also have two new sets going in the store tomorrow! Be on the lookout!!

See you tomorrow!!

Template #22

Hello Digiworld! Happy Tuesday! For me, and every woman in the state of North Carolina, today is indeed a happy day! The North Carolina Friends of Midwives has been trying to get a bill passed that would license Certified Professional Midwives. As it stands right now, access to a legal homebirth attendant is not possible for most women in our state. Getting this bill passed will change that! Today, the bill passed the committee vote, and is going to be heard on the floor of the House in the next 2 days. So, if any of you scrappers are from the state of NC, and you want to help get this bill passed, please call your reps in the next couple days, and urge passage of HB333!!

Back to scrapping, here's Template #22:

Templates 20 and 21, plus WINNERS!

Hi! Thank you for the well wishes! Well, that was a fun 24 hours! I am severely allergic to Oak trees and Fescue grass, and this is the top time of year for both of them. I was outside for a little while at church yesterday morning, and by the time I got home, my eyes were starting to water. I ended up with a migraine headache from all the pressure and everything. Yuck! Thankfully, the reaction tapered off by about 2 this afternoon, and I am feeling like a new woman!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We took some pictures yesterday(of course!), and here is one of my favorites of my babies:

Temp #19... and some other stuff!

Wow! Template #18 went super fast! By the time I had Erin in bed, and checked on here, there were almost 200 downloads! Happy Weekend to everyone who got it before I checked!!

I went ahead and put a set together for those that didn't get here in time. It is in the store for $2.00, and contains two extra templates that won't be released in the Template Bonanza!

Also, don't forget today is the LAST day to get the Flower Power Mini Album for just $2.00. It will go back to the regular price on Sunday.

So, moms out there, treat yourself to some flowers today! Just think, these won't wilt, you won't have to water them, and you get to play with them over and over!!

Here's today's template:


And here is the page I put together with it:

This is from my family's Thanksgiving last year. The hugely pregnant woman is me! I was actually 12 days past my due date at this point! I had only gone to 39 weeks and 3 days with my first, so I fully expected to have Erin by Thanksgiving. I had even bought her a "Babies First Thanksgiving" outfit to wear that day! I ended up wearing it for a photo, simply trying to keep some humor in the situation. By the end of lunch, I was truly STUFFED! Erin did not make her appearance for another 4 days!!

Temp #17

Hey! Thank you to everyone who posted and emailed about the Box lagtime and Google Reader. Just when I think I have a handle on technology, I am reminded that I will never catch up!

We have had a lazy day here, as Erin decided sleep was not something she was interested in last night! I didn't get to bed until around 4, as she was up every 45 minutes. She has reflux on top of the MSPI, and one of the things we discussed at the dr yesterday was upping her meds a tiny bit. I think we are going to go ahead and do so, as she acted like she just could not get comfy and settle last night.

Here's today's template!


I was in the garden mood! Last night I went out and got more corn, cantelope, pumpkins, and more sugar snap peas in the ground. It has been rainy the past couple days, so it felt like I was digging in a mud hole. Unfortunately, I was out at dusk, so got a bunch of mosquito bites. Ugh. This food had better grow and be great!!

This Download has expired! Look for it in the store soon!

This is a stand alone template, but would go well with both the Going Green set, and the Template Bonanza Bonus #1. I still have about 10 of the bonuses left, so get it while you can!! The temps from that set will not be given away to everyone, and will be part of an album eventually, so grab it free while you can!


The Bonus Set. Click on the pick to see how to earn this one.


Also, don't forget about the Flower Power Mini Album! It is on sale for only 3 more days!!


And for today's Mom's Extravaganza, I want to know what you do to celebrate Mother's Day. Leave a comment with contact info, and I will email you a coupon code for 35% off everything in the store for the rest of the week! We are planning to go to church on Sunday, then come back to our house. My parents are coming over, and my hubby and dad are going to grill lunch for us. We are probably having Grilled Chicken Salads, and the guys are doing the dishes!! I also need to get to work on sending some pictures to my Mother In Law, as we won't see her until later this month.

Have a great day, see ya tomorrow!

Template #16!

Howdy! Before I get to the template, I have to tell you about my great day! Our day started off with dentist appts for both my oldest daughter and me. My teeth look good(great accomplishment after a rough pregnancy in which I couldn't take my prenatals!) and Kyla did such a GREAT job! This was her first time to the dentist(she just turned 3), and she acted like such a big girl! I am sooo proud of her today!

After visiting the dentist, we grabbed lunch then headed to the pediatric office for both K and Erin's well checks. They both checked out as super healthy! I am especially thrilled about E b/c we have been a bit concerned about her gaining weight due to the milk/soy protein intolerance. She is in the 90th percentile!!!!! I am sooooooooo excited! I usually don't pay much attention to that stuff, but it just made my day today!

Here's the template:


This is one of the 12 in the Scrapper's Block Template Album. This is the only one that will be in the bonanza!

This Download has expired! Look for it in the store!

I hate to add this, but Please note: This link is for you to visit to download this template only. It is NOT FOR SHARING. Yesterday, I had 18 downloads STOLEN from my box. When the link was taken off the site there had been 112 downloads, and within the next 6 hours, there were another 18. This is wrong. This is stealing. I am being above and beyond generous with my work, both to benefit those who visit my blog, and to get my name out. I love scrapping. I want to make it easy for newcomers and those who have done it forever. I put a lot of time and effort into this blog and my products. If you don't make it in time for the download, you can easily purchase the item in my store. I have done my best to keep costs down so that the templates are affordable. When you pass along a link or download my items when they are not offered, you are stealing from me. Period. I have taken steps to reduce the likelyhood that this will happen again, but it makes me very sad that I have had to do this.
(Thank you to all that have not shared my links. It came to my attention that sometimes things take a while to show up when you are using, and that may be the cause of the extra downloads. If that is the case, I apologize for blaming my readers for wrongdoing. I really do enjoy making these for you all, and will continue to do so! I'll have another up soon for ya!)

Now, on to lighter subjects!

In continuing this weeks celebration of moms, I want to go beyond motherhood, and look at the whole person. Moms give so much of themselves to their children, and part of that giving is by showing them how to be passionate. Moms, what are you passionate about? I know you are passionate about your kids, but what else do you model for them? For me, my passions include:

Crafts(granted, this does end up being about the kids most of the time, dresses for the girls, scrapbooking, yada yada. In the end though, it is the drive for creating that I LOVE),
my faith,
living naturally[eating healthy foods, natural remedies before drugs, cloth diapers, organic gardening, non GMO foods](goes hand in hand with my faith),
homebirth(for those outside the US, homebirth is actually seen as crazy and weird here. for me, it was one of the top experiences of my life!),
breastfeeding(both making it happen for my daughters, and helping other women who are having issues with nursing), and

Motherhood has changed and helped mold my passions, so what has it done with yours?

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me about your passions. If you want someone to listen to what you have to say, here's the place!! I know sometimes after being home with the girls all day, I just want someone to listen to me say something other that "stop that." Leave your email with it, and I will send you a coupon code good for the rest of the week, for 35% off any item in the store! If you don't want to share your email with everyone, you are free to email me at thepaperiris*at*gmail*dot*com.

Also, don't miss the new set I put in the store yesterday! It's on sale for $2.00 this week only!! Next week it will be at the regular price of $4.00. (If you comment and get the 35% off coupon, you could get this set for the major bargain of $1.30!)


So, did you read the whole post? I can't believe how much I post on here, those that read my family's blog would be astounded!! I must like you people!

See ya tomorrow!

Flower Power Mini Album

Hello Digiworld! The 100 download limit for Template #15 was reached in only 5 hours today! I have had a couple emails asking why the link was pulled so quickly, and wanted to make sure everyone knows the "rules". For the duration of the Template Bonanza, every freebie that is posted, is only up for the first 100 downloads, then the link is pulled. After that, the freebie will be available in the store(link is to the top right of your screen). Sometimes the freebie is part of a set, other times it is part of an album. The freebies that don't belong to any particular group will be grouped together and sold as a set.

I went ahead and put the freebie from yesterday into a set with Templates #10 and 11, and have put it in the store. I have also added 3 that have not, and will not, be released in the Temp Bonanza! I am going to sell it for 1/2 price the rest of the week, simply because I know there were a lot of people who wanted it and missed it today. After Saturday, the set will be full price.

Here's the preview (Click on the pic to go to the store):


I'll see ya later with Temp #16. Right now, I have to get some sleep. It's going to be a busy day tomorrow, with two dentist appts, and two pediatrician appts as well!!
