Freebie Friday – Around the World [Pixel Scrapper April Blog Train]

Well, I’m glad that the year of March 2020 is over. (What do you mean it was only 31 days long?)

——————————————————————————————–

As we fling ourselves headfirst into another month of almost world-wide quarantine – along with all the fun bonuses of cancer treatment for me, and being at home with my children all day long – I bring you my contribution to this month’s Pixel Scrapper blog train, titled, ironically enough, Around the World.

Although none of us will be jetsetting anywhere anytime soon, there’s always time to reminisce on adventures you’ve already had – or you could document your trip to collect the mail tomorrow morning. Adventure awaits you at the bottom of your driveway!

Happy quarantine!

Freebie Friday – Oh Boy! [Pixel Scrapper March Blog Train]

I went a little outside the box for this month’s Pixel Scrapper blog train contribution.

I’m a stay at home mum right now, and have been for the last seven years. I enjoy it about 99% of the time but it can be quite isolating, particularly if you’re an introvert like me.

I do have my excellent family and close friends, and my small group of mum friends and acquaintances, but right now, my main tribe consists of my three little boys – four if you count my husband, but he’s not quite as high maintenance as my three (cute but annoying) stooges.

I ended up making an entire kit of all things boy. The kit is a giant boyish cliché because my boys happen to be a giant boyish cliché.

I am surrounded by blue things, and cars, spaceships, trains, LEGO, and an alarming number of varied toy weapons. (And a little bit of Frozen – which is also mostly blue – because my middle child cannot effing let it go.)

I’m starting to think that the LEGO and Hot Wheels cars multiply of their own accord when I’m not looking …

You can get the whole kit on Etsy.

Or you can have the journal cards for free!

I hope these cards come in handy if you have a boy tribe of your own. Or if you just like the colour blue.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Glitter Hearts

February is here and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. I know this because there are hearts, flowers and chocolates everywhere – mostly hiding the Easter paraphernalia that’s been slowly creeping into stores since Christmas Eve.

So I’m dedicating February to hearts, flowers and chocolates. You can have the hearts and flowers. I’ll have the chocolates. Deal?

I’m working on something special for next week because the day of love actually falls on Friday! I love it when special occasions fall on The Day of Freebies. I feel as though I have to go that little bit further to celebrate.

This week I have some simple but pretty glittery hearts. They’re large enough to be used as frames, but you can also shrink them down for smaller embellishments. They’re also available in multiple colours for your convenience!

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Sketched

What I was going to do this month was make a whole Christmas kit, split it into bite-sized bits, and then offer it every Friday until the end of the year. Then at the end of December you’d have a nifty little kit for all your sparkly Christmas scrapping.

What I’m actually doing – digging into my stash and finding some backups because I have approximately 5 minutes of freedom a day until the end of the month (and year, eek) and I sure as heck didn’t have time to make a full Christmas kit.

But if you scroll below this post you’ll find a cute little Christmas mini kit in a non-traditional colour palette. That’s as good as it’s gonna get this year.

So lets begin!

Happy holidays!

Freebie Friday – Clipped (A Paperclip Alpha)

I was in the middle of creating elements for my purple and pink and black and silver gothic-inspired kit, and I thought to myself, I like paperclips. I want all sorts of paperclip shapes. Where can I find paperclip shapes? Then I went looking for paperclip shapes.

I found a typeface instead. Check it out, it’s super cool and free!

And the result was this – a simple little paperclip alpha.

Happy scrapping!
