Freebie Friday – Winter in the Tropics [Pixel Scrapper July Blog Train]

I find that lately I have less and less time to do things. Little things that I’d like to do, like shower and eat and drink that cup of tea that’s been sitting, forgotten, on the kitchen counter since breakfast. (And I’d absolutely love to go to the loo by myself and when I want to, but I understand that’s at least two years off.)

So scrapbooking and designing has been flung straight off my to-do list. Hopefully it’ll slowly creep back on as baby Thomas grows older and (hopefully) starts sleeping on surfaces that aren’t me.

I do have a few things in reserve, and when my husband isn’t at work, on occasion I’ll fling the baby his way, pop on my very dated playlist (Backstreet Boys, anyone?) and bring up Photoshop. Then I have to remind myself how to use it – I’m rusty, you see. And my creativity seems to have buggered off with my brain. But I push myself and occasionally pretty things result.

Here is one such small, random collection of pretty things. It’s not quite a kit, but it has elements of one. I’m sure some of them will go nicely with the rest of the July blog train. It’s a beautiful one!

Happy winter!

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!

Freebie Friday – Home for the Holidays {PixelScrapper December Blog Train}

We’re finally in December – a new month means a new blog train at PixelScrapper – the loveliest digital scrapbooking forum around, so go check it out if you’re in the neighbourhood. This month’s theme is Home for the Holidays.

The first of this month conveniently falls on a Friday, so I can offer you my contribution straight away. It’s a (pretty big) mini kit with all the trimmings! I’m actually really happy with this kit, especially the wooden charms – I made them from scratch! And the button snowman is super cute, if I do say so myself.
