Today Tonisha sent me this cute Quickpage she made using the Winter Traditions kit. She agreed to let me share it with you here on my blog. A rare photo of my 3 grandsons together – the oldest is in the Navy and doesn't get to be with his brothers nearly enough.

December 2011 Blog Train Freebie

It would be hard to believe it was December if I hadn't been hearing Christmas Carols on the radio for the past month.
How was your Thanksgiving? I hope wonderful! Now comes the hectic month of shopping, baking, planning and traveling. Then we get to enjoy Christmas day with our families. Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday season and thanks for visiting my blog this year!

This month our theme is traditions and I went with the traditions of winter – I'm looking forward to them except for the driving in the snow part – that I could do without..

October Blog Train Blog

Welcome! You've just landed here from Amanda Carlson Designs.
I hope you've settled in to fall and things have settled into normal for you (whatever that is). When I designed this kit I was hoping some of you would have a chance to settle in and read a good book this fall. Who's your favorite author? Mine's Margaret Atwood – she even has a book out I haven't read yet!
We had carte blanche on theme this month so I chose "A Good Read" There's a full size bookcase (12X12) and books sized to fit, everything is separate so you can build your own. You could also size them down and use them as elements as shown in the preview.
I've seen this month's previews and there are many themes all in the same color palette so you can mix and match using all kinds of photos from any season.
Download just the Papers HERE
Download just the Elements HERE
Download both Papers and Elements as one large download (66.52MB) HERE
Have fun and get a snack because it's a big train with lots to collect.
Next stop is Digi Deborah's Designs

Free Kit-Blog Train is here!

Hi Everyone! Could it really be August 1st??? Where did our summer go?
This month I was away part of the month and didn't finish putting things I wanted to in this kit. You get all the papers, but I only got the clustered elements done. After looking at the previews of what is offered this month, I'm not worried about you getting plenty of elements – the kits are especially gorgeous this month and there are 100 designers taking part. Get out there and have fun and scrap some of those summer memories while we still have them!

Free Paper Pack

I decided to throw my hat in the ring of The Studio Spring Fling Designer Contest (follow the link to download – there are lots of other beautiful paper packs there too!) Week one challenge was to create a paper pack of 12 papers. The contest will run for 4 weeks with a different challenge each week. The theme is wedding and I chose a soft, muted spring palette which will carry throughout the month. Here are the papers and I'm working on the elements for the coming week. If you download each week you'll have a full kit by the end of the month. The requirement for elements is 30, so you'll have lots of those to play with! Here is the Preview.

ARRRGH! 4shared

I want to first thank you for your comments, secondly I want to apologize to all of you who have had trouble with 4 shared. I just downloaded and had no problem, but then tried working on my account and was having problems. Obviously 4 shared is being temperamental. If I understand correctly it's the full kit that people are having trouble with. The smaller download contain the same kit, but split into 3 smaller files, please try these if you have trouble with the full kit file. I've also uploaded to SkyDrive, but I just got an email from someone saying there's a problem with a kit I have there also, but we'll give that a go. Reminder: SkyDrive has 50MB file limit so those will also be 3 small files also, but this might work better for some of you.

Free Mini Kit–The Bunny Hop is Here

I’d like to think that the first sign of spring is the Easter digi scrap kits that appear each year. I had a lot of fun working on this kit with it’s bright spring colors and fun elements. I got to practice my airbrush technique and I hope you have as much fun with these elements as I did..
The Easter Bunny is in hiding this year so everyone donned their ears to take his place. The ladies have on their Easter bonnets and everyone is ready for spring – including me – I’m so ready! How about you?
