Freebie Friday (and a bit of shameless promoting)

First off, I’d like to thank everyone for being so lovely and supportive throughout my pregnancy whining and the tragic blog neglect that followed. I appreciate all the well wishes and congratulations – and the sympathy at my pre-baby pity parties!

Secondly, this week I’m going to shamelessly direct you to my Etsy shop. Because I can.

Baby Thomas is now 6 weeks old – so all scrap bundles at Pixel In My Pocket are 60% off for this week only. So it’s an excellent time to add to your digital scrap stash! It’s an awesome deal – for less than $5 you get a huge full-sized kit along with a whole bunch of various extras, including papers, journal cards, alphas, and embellishments.

I’m offering two freebies this week featuring complementary papers for two of the discounted bundles: Tudor Rose and A Grimm Sort of Tale. The first is a set of glitter papers and polka dot foil patterns for all your medieval and historical needs, the second features one of my absolute favourite papers, the fairytale-inspired pattern that makes up my current header. And now you can download it for your collection!

Happy scrapping!

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 – Sketched Kraft

(Okay, so it’s Monday and not Friday. Lets just pretend I got this done in time.)

The party planning is over, my infection has cleared, and I am free to actually be a productive member of society again!

At least until the planning for Christmas starts …

In the meantime, I’m clearing out the rest of my paper stash. I have a handful of projects in the works and the digital clutter is starting to bug me. Spring cleaning all around! There are 3 paper packs included with 20 papers in each. Some of the patterns are quite similar but I just couldn’t choose between the slight variations. I do hope you find them useful.

Freebie Friday – Blue Watercolour

Whoa, what a week. Or three. I’ve lost count. Between sick, sick and sicker, along with questionably timed 12km hikes, an upcoming birthday party and I don’t even know what’s happening anymore.

It’s already the second week of October and I have absolutely no clue where 2018 has gone. (It’s probably under the couch with all that missing LEGO. I’ll check later.)

This week we have some lovely calm blue patterned watercolour papers. Because I could sure as heck use the CALM.

Freebie Friday – Greyscale Sketch

Something short and sweet and very simple because I’m recovering from my millionth sinus infection in the last 3 months, as well as crazy aching legs from a 12km hike through rough terrain on Wednesday. I assume my legs will be fully functioning and pain free sometime next week. Hopefully.

This week I have some nice and simple greyscale geometric patterns. Use them by themselves or throw them over a textured kraft base and play with layer styles for a cooler effect.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Summer Green

September opened with lovely spring weather. Blue skies, fluffy clouds, lovely temperate days. And then boom! – a raging storm, with bonus hail, and icy cold winds. Just after I’d removed my lovely flannel sheets. Typical. Oh, and a flooded, waterlogged car that eventually started growing plant life. Ah, the miracle of life!

The weather is picking up again, and gorgeous greens are slowly spreading through the city. To celebrate this springing of spring, this week we have a paper pack in a beautiful shade of brilliant, vibrant green.

And we get a new car, so woo! (It probably won’t be green, though.)

Happy scrapping!
