Bear Paper Add-On

Happy Reformation Day! On this day, October 31st, in 1517, Martin Luther posted a proposal at the doors of a church in Wittenberg, Germany, to debate the doctrine and practice of indulgences. This proposal is popularly known as the 95 Theses, which he nailed to the Castle Church doors.

Here's an add-on to my Bear kit. It's 2 papers from the kit but I have "torn" them. I also saved them as .png files so you can put them on top of another paper and the bottom paper will show through. Thanks go to Gunhild Storeide for the resources. Have a safe weekend.

Colorado Alpha

It's getting to be that time again when I just feel like hibernating... just sitting at home and not going out. Before computers (I'm dating myself now), when the weather got cold I would like to just stay at home and knit or read. Now, I like to stay at home and sit in front of the computer and work on digi-designs. You know what I'm talking about, don't you? Today, you can download the alpha for the Colorado kit. I made this before I got Deb's wonderful tag action from Scrappin Cop but you will see that later in another kit. Enjoy the day and smile, God loves you!

Animal pics

Greetings and salutations! I hope you are not disappointed as there is no freebie for you. Today I am sharing some pictures that were taken last October when we went to San Diego to visit family and friends. These shots were taken at the Wild Animal Park using my Canon automatic digital camera. Since I don't know an aperture from an F stop I rely on an automatic. I do love Photoshop Elements recessed frame effect! The last photo of the okapi is a technique called "Out of Bounds" (OOB) which I learned from a great tutorial from Serrator. You can get his tutorial on how to do that here. The tutorial has a dinosaur on the front. I would consider him the master of OOB's. By the way, the okapi is my favorite animal. Can you guess what animal it is related to? No, not the zebra. It is actually related to the giraffe and is called the "rainforest giraffe". Just a little interesting trivia for you. Have a blessed day!

Bear Elements

I'm so glad that you stopped by. Today I have the elements for the Bear kit. One of my favorite elements to make is the glass button so I try to get creative with it using different patterns and textures. I have not made an alpha for this kit so I will be posting another new kit soon. Enjoy!

Thank you for all of the encouraging comments that I have been reading since I started this blog this past week. It really motivates me to design more freebies!

Have a great weekend.

Autumn Leaves Wood Alpha

I have only made 3 sets of alphas in my life and this is the first one so I'm still getting the hang of it. I actually made this alpha before I designed the Autumn Leaves kit but since I didn't make an alpha for the kit and this one kind of goes with this theme you get it now. Let me know what you think. You can snag it by clicking on the picture. Tomorrow I will try and post a layout using the new kit that I will be starting on Monday. Until then, have a great day!

Sweet Dreams-Vicki's blog

I wanted to tell you how this blog got started. I was surfing the web looking for freebies (can anyone relate?) and I came across Vicki's blog- A Work in Progress. Her kits, and she has tons of them, are just my style. I felt like I hit the motherload! I let Vicki know how much I appreciated her sharing all of her beautiful designs with the whole world and told her that I also like to design my own. She encouraged me to start a blog (my first one ever!) so this is the result. Thanks, Vicki, for all of your help. You can check out Vicki's work, including her newest design, Sweet Dreams, on her blog. Don't forget to send her some love.

Here is the second part of the elements. I will be posting a lot more freebies so if you don't want to miss any of them, take a moment to sign up your e-mail (on the left). Then you can be notified when a new post is made. Enjoy the day!
