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 – Delish [Pixel Scrapper February Blog Train]

January has swept right past me in a whirl of heat, caffeine, and chicken pox. 3 kids, four weeks, and so, so many spots.

My oldest bought it home from primary school, just in time for the new year! He was first, followed by the youngest two almost exactly fourteen days later.

Thanks to scheduled shots when they were toddlers, Mr 7 and Mr 5 had approximately 25 spots between them. No fevers, a bit of grumpiness the day before the spots appeared, and then some itching – and it was over almost before it began.

The baby, however – my 10 month old, too young to be vaccinated – was hit with it like a freight train. It was two weeks of torture for my little man. He’s now recovered like a little trooper and all we have as reminder of his wretched experience with varicella are the rapidly fading pock marks on his tiny little body.

On the up side, school’s back in session – THANK EFFING GOODNESS.

Luckily I had this month’s blog train contribution all prepared for February (unlike my extreme lack of preparing for January, oops). A bit of a hodge podge of bright colours and sweet things. Don’t forget to check out the forum for more delish goodies.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Sweaters & Hot Cocoa [Pixel Scrapper January Blog Train]

As an Aussie living in the southern hemisphere, it always amuses me when Pixel Scrapper has seasonal blog train challenges because we’re usually experiencing the exact opposite of what I’m designing for. Barely a month into an increasingly hot and humid summer, with half the state on fire, and I’m here seriously craving hot cocoa with marshmallows.

Check out the other deliciously cosy blog train freebies here.

Hope you’re keeping cool! (Or cosy.)

Happy New Year!

It’s the start of a brand new year!

As we say goodbye to 2019 and usher in the new 20s, now’s the time to make all those well-meaning resolutions for the new year – that will probably fly right out the window halfway through January, lets be real.

Or is that just me?

In an effort to start digital year on the right foot, I have a fun and sparkly NYE mini kit for all your celebratory digi-page needs. As usual, click on the image to download.

While you’re doing that, I’ll be over here wondering where 2019 went in such a hurry.

Happy New Year, my lovelies!

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!
