Template Tuesday!

I'm having such a good time in the States. There's so much that I didn't even realize that I missed. Most of all, it's good to be at my parents' house. This morning, my dad and I sat on the porch and ate breakfast together. You can't do that in Doha!

Here is my newest scrapbook page. I made it with my Summer Smoothie kit and the template below.

Freebie Friday

I posted this freebie already this week, but I don't think many people noticed it because I wasn't very clear in the post that there was a freebie, and since the link was to my shop, it wasn't picked up by digi-free. So, here it is again, an add-on to my Lone Star kit. Enjoy! :)

Be sure to check out my last post. There's a coupon at the bottom! :)

Drumroll please!

I have a big announcement! I've been so excited to tell you guys, but I wanted to wait until it was all official. Drumroll please ................. I am the newest designer at Scrap Professor! I have all my new products uploaded into my shop, but since there's not all that many I'd like to share them with you here, too. :)
Here are my template sets:
My first template set is called Stars and Strips :) and the focus is exactly that, paper strips and all kinds of stars. You'll love these templates, I promise! This is the preview for the complete set, but you can also buy the templates in packs of 4. Of course, when you buy the complete set, the price is discounted. :)
This is my second set of templates, Swirls and Whirls. I just love swirly-thingies on my layouts, and I've done all the hard work of erasing the bits and pieces that you wouldn't want showing for you. I plan to make more templates in this style, so stay tuned. :)
Also, all of my templates that I am selling in my shop now have PNG's for those of you who need them. :) Additionally, I've changed my TOU to include S4H/S4O. As always, if you have any questions about anything regarding my products, please email me; I'd love to help you out.
Now, here are my new kits:
First is a mini-kit, that I really do think is darling, Darling Daisy. Doesn't it make you feel happy? :) And, this mini-kit has a mini-pricetag. :)
Here's the kit that I teased you with last week, Isn't It Romantic? I know it kind of looks like Valentine's Day, but it could be used for all kinds of pages and projects. All of the papers are heavily grunged. My favorite part of this kit is the envelope and old paper. But, I'm also kind of partial to the polka-dot paper flower with the eyelet center. :)

When you buy Isn't It Romantic, you also get this coordinating alpha FREE!

This next kit is yummy! Summer Smoothie was one of my favorite things to work on so far. It does include some "fruity" elements and papers, but there's also a lot of neutral items. I think you'll love this kit. :)

And, when you buy Summer Smoothie, you get this alpha FREE! :)

This kit just says summer to me. I love the fresh colors, and I had a lot of fun creating the papers. You'll love the graphic style of this kit. You can also buy separate element and paper packs if you prefer.

While I wasn't intending to create a tribute to Texas, I was stumped on a name for this kit and my husband suggested Lone Star and it stuck. :) I just love the colors in this kit. It'd be great for all kinds of projects. I hope it sparks your creativity like it has mine. :)

And, if you buy Lone Star, you get the coordinating chipboard alpha FREE! :)

I couldn't seem to stop playing with this kit, so I've created a little add-on freebie for you. You do need to be logged in to download this freebie, but you do not need to add it to your cart. Enjoy! :) (Click image to go to download.)

And, just for you, because you read all the way to the end of this post, I have a coupon for 10% off your order from my store. Coupon code: TEBlog Hurry! The coupon expires on July 22nd. :)

My decision and a freebie

After much deliberating, and since about half of you said that you wanted me to change the name or that you didn't care, I decided to change my name to Templates, Etc. by Erica. Since it's so close to my old name (which was my intention in choosing it) I'm not going to change my blog address, so you won't need to change anything if you have me on your google reader.

I've been missing giving you all freebies, and since it's nearly midnight here, we'll call it Template Tuesday! Here's a little template I made up for you tonight. It's based loosely on an LO that I saw here.

It's been quiet around here, but I've been working hard on a few different projects, not to mention the fact that I've been gearing up for a trip back to the US. Here's a little sneak peek at one of the things to come:

I've been thinking, too, about my name. Not my real name, my digi-scrapping name, Templates by Erica. I don't just want to do templates anymore. But, everyone knows me as Templates by Erica, so if I changed my name, I might lose some of my peeps. :) What do you think? I tried to make a poll, let's see how it works. And, if you have any suggestions for me, leave me a comment!
