Freebie Friday – Mum In A Million

I was hoping to get this out before Mother’s Day but I got sidetracked by my cute (and incredibly annoying) sproglets. But overall, I’m calling it a win – despite being chronically sleep deprived and in an eternal state of ‘what have I forgotten to do today?’, between my husband and I, we’ve managed to keep all three of our children alive, fed, and (usually) dressed.

I’ve even managed to sign and return permission notes and homework to school on time! That is, of course, assuming I get the notes before they’re due back … but that’s a worry for another day.

So basically, I’m celebrating myself.

And my darling mum, who still thinks my children are the best in the world and has way more patience for them than I do. LOVE YOU, MUM!

Head on over to my Etsy store and celebrate all things mum (or mom) with a bright and sparkly bundle of mum-isms, Mum In A Million.

Or you could just grab a set of complementary floral wallpaper patterned papers below. Click on the image to download.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums, bio and otherwise, the grandmothers, grandmas, and avós! And to all the dads doing double time!

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.
