Merry Christmas and a gift!

Hello everyone!

I hope you've been enjoying Rachael's Templates....she's amazing isn't she? She's on a break, but she'll be back soon!

I wanted to give you a little gift for Christmas! It's a cute little fancy page border that coordinates with my Christmas Whimsy kit now available at for a fancy little price.

This is one of my favorite holiday fun and unique. Here's a page I made with a little template help from C. Schneider....I LOVE it! Isn't it cool!

I wish you all a beautiful and peaceful CHRISTmas weekend! 
May all your dreams be merry and bright! ('Scuse the liberties with the lyrics, LOL)

Merry Christmas and love from,
Dancing Princess and the DPD Royalty

Template Tuesday #11

December has started off with a freezing BANG this year! 
Power outages, wind storms, snow, and so much more. 
This month we are really counting our blessings. 

I really enjoy doing crafts with my kids. 
This Sunday we made gingerbread houses with the kids. 
 I cut them out with my silhouette. 
They turned out so cute!  
To download the template click {here}

I used "Christmas Whimsy" for this layout.
Christmas Whimsy will be coming to the store soon, so keep checking back.
But for many other kits look {here}.

I'm Thankful for YOU!

To all those in the USA who are celebrating Thanksgiving 
(and all of you everywhere) this weekend, 
I wish you the most beautiful of holidays. 
For me, the holiday means spending time with family, 
teaching my girls how to cook yummy stuff (and my boy too, once he's old enough), 
eating forbidden things (there are no calories on Thanksgiving, right?) 
and counting as many blessing as I can think of...and then some.

One of those blessings is all of you beautiful friends and fans, 
and my amazing Dancing Princess Royalty. I couldn't do this without you!

For you, in celebration and thanksgiving please accept this small token of my affection
and have a wonderful weekend!

Getting Ready for the Season {Templates}

I have been a huge slacker these last few weeks. One week I didn't get the templates out to the creative team, and the next week I forget to even post the template. Totally slacking on my part. This time of year is always so... busy! Who doesn't forget something! As you all know it's about that time to start planning, designing, and ordering your Christmas cards. 

I must be this really crazy planner because I had three versions of my Christmas cards already designed  and ready to go before Halloween. Which has been a blessing because now I don't have the time. This template is a 3 in 1. I have three templates that I have made, all for you. Go ahead, download them, changes them, and make them yours for all your family and friends for Christmas. 
To Download {Click Here}

Here are three of my Christmas cards. 
I know Crazy that I have three, right!!! 
I hope you enjoy my templates, and that they help you get into the holiday spirit.

Template Tuesday #6

Can you believe it's Fall? 
I can't.
 Who doesn't love Fall colors though? 
There is just something about Fall that brings warm feelings into the home. 
Thoughts of snuggling under a warm blanket, 
sipping hot chocolate, and watching a good chick flick come to me daily. 

To download todays template click here

I needed some help this week,
So I called on one of my good friends.
 who happens to be a secret DPD fan. 
 Todays layout is of my good friend Jen Gilbert's beautiful kids.
 Using "Some Like It Hot". 

Which leads me to pose the question- Are you a secret DPD fan? 
If you are, we would love to hear from you, and find out what your favorite DPD kit is. 

For more inspiration and ideas for how to use this template look no further than our DPD royalty.

Template Tuesday #5

My six year old has scarred me for life. I cannot send him out the door for school anymore without worrying that I'm going to get a call from the school that he is soaking wet, bloody and might need stitches, and now black and blue. These pictures were taken right after I got him home. He ran into the basket ball pole at school, during recess. 
While working on this layout I knew exactly what Dancing Princess Design paper I wanted to use. I couldn't be more happy with how my layout and template turned out. 

I really hope you enjoy this template.
There's something new about the download process that I feel I should tell you about.
It's good news, so no worries. 
When you click on the link it will no longer open up the file in photoshop. 
Now it's a zip file, Yay!!!
Hope you enjoy!!!

For this layout I used " It's A Jungle Out There

Template Tuesday #4

Hello all!!! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. My family and I had a blast, especially this last week. I got to take my daughter to dance class for the first time this last week. This has been something my daughter and I have been looking forward to for a long time now. Seeing her all dressed up and loving dance class made my heart overflow with happiness.

I loved putting this template together, and I loved creating a layout with a Dancing Princess Designs kit that was perfect for what I was trying to accomplish. To download the template click here.

For my layout I used "Idylwild."

Here are the fabulous layouts that some of our D.P.D. Royalty have made using this template.

Template Tuesday #3

Happy Template Tuesday everyone! This weekend had been so much fun. I hope everyone is having fun settling back into life with kids at school. I know I am. Though I'm having a hard time still dropping my son off at school. Every time he gets out of the car it pulls at my heart strings. I catch myself wondering what he's going to learn for the day, hoping he has a good day, and praying that nothing bad happens. When does life as a mother get easier? 

This weeks template was so much fun to make! I really hope you enjoy it. This template took me outside my comfort zone, and I hope it does you too. To download it, click here

Update:The link has been updated but Drop box may be having some problems. If you aren't able to download from the first link click here

I have been saving these pictures of a template that would be perfect. 
I couldn't be more happy with this layout.
