Freebie Friday – Mardi Gras [PixelScrapper March Blog Train]

It would seem that I somehow missed Christmas and the new year and skipped straight to March. So, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Valentine’s Day!

In my defence, it’s been crazy and, while technically the last two months just flew by, they’ve also been the longest of my life (at least since the last time I was pregnant, of course).

I’m now only 4 weeks away from meeting my tiny new baby (although my bets are closer to 3 weeks), and I have all the time in the world and so much to do and absolutely can’t be bothered doing any of it because I’m freaking huge, it’s ridiculously hot and humid, and I’m pretty sure this kid will grow up to be a gymnast.

So in between attempting to Marie Kondo my house and napping every half hour, I’m trying to build up a stash of scrap stuff to share and sell. No guarantees, of course, and I can’t say that I won’t disappear for a couple of months again, but I will try!

In the meantime, I’m getting into the groove with a paper pack for the March PixelScrapper blog train, Mardi Gras (go on and check out the other submissions; they’re gorgeous). I just love the colour scheme and couldn’t resist all those jewelled tones. The pack comes with 7 solids, 7 shimmery foils and 15 abstract geometric patterns.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Candy Cane

It’s almost here! Whee!

Final freebie for 2018, again perfect to coordinate with my Retro Holly Jolly mini and last week’s candy stripe papers. There are 5 alphas in the zip, all with different candy cane patterns. Enjoy

We’re heading for holidays soon and I plan to relax like a doped up sloth, so this will likely be my final post of 2018 – I’d like to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

See you in 2019!

Freebie Friday – Retro Holly Jolly [PixelScrapper December Blog Train]

We’re almost there!

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. It’s a crazy, stressful, chaotic time – but boy, is it fun!

The tree is decorated, the presents are haphazardly piled up and waiting to be wrapped (I’ll get to it eventually), and my kids are pretty sick of hearing “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” fifty times a day.

It’s also hot, humid and gross – perfect Aussie Christmas weather!

And it wouldn’t be a celebration without the Pixel Scrapper December blog train! It’s an amazing collection this year, and my contribution is a cute little mini kit, with a few extras to follow in the weeks up til Christmas.

Happy holidays!

Freebie Friday – Vintage Christmas Journal Cards

Although it’s technically not yet December (it’s so inconvenient when these things don’t fall on Fridays, isn’t it?), there’s nothing in the rules to say that we can’t kick off the Christmas freebies a little early.

It’s only one day, after all and, honestly, the Christmas playlist has been on repeat for a month and the tree went up two weeks ago …


‘TIS THE SEASON!

Freebie Friday – Dino Roar Bottle Caps

Last month I participated in the October “I Dig It” PixelScrapper blog train. Since I was drowning in toy cars, and ocasionally stepping on them too because my children are blind to mess, I focused on a cute little construction theme. Later, as the others posted, I thought how cool would a dinosaur themed kit be?

It would be DINO-MITE, AMIRITE?

So I set to work and you can find the resulting dino-riffic kit (or bundle if you’d like some more bits and pieces) on Etsy.

As a sneak peek, this week I have some super cool matching dinosaur bottle caps for you. (Click on the image below to download.)

Next week we have the final random freebie of the year before it all falls to CHRISTMAS! LOTS OF CHRISTMAS!

Freebie Friday – Kraft Sketch Borders

As October has marched right on by (it’s November, WTF?), I am once again struck by how fast this year has gone. But then again, I feel the same way every year. I just get to a point where I’m continuously freaking out each time I glance a calendar. To be fair the second half of 2018 has presented slightly more of a challenge than previous years, but damn, it’s still gone by so fast!

But I must march onwards too because I’ve let too much fall by the wayside! Busy, busy, busy.

Anyway, onto this week’s freebie!

This lovely set of paper border strips perfectly complements this earlier Sketched Kraft freebie.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Halloweenies Stickers

I just want to give a big thank you to everyone who joined my “I’m sick and pregnant and woe is me” pity party. I really appreciate the solidarity! You guys are all AWESOME.

Halloween is quickly sneaking up – and Christmas isn’t far behind, eek! – and, despite my initial plans to make a cool and creepy mini kit, all I’ve got are some cute and creepy pumpkin stickers.

(But the Christmas kit is gonna be great, I promise!)

Hope your Halloween is delightfully creepy!
