Oregon Alpha

Who got up at 4am and shopped on this Black Friday? For those of you that do not live in the United States, the day after Thanksgiving is called "Black Friday" and it is considered the busiest shopping day here. Stores have special sales and open VERY early. It is not uncommon to see people waiting in huge lines hours before the store opens to be able to snag the best bargains of the day. It's crazy! Well, you don't have to wait in line for this bargain. I have for you today the alpha to the Oregon kit. It's been really fun designing this kit. I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Also, if you went shopping, what was the bargain of the day that you were able to snag. Inquiring minds want to know!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm so thankful for all of my scrappin friends who come to visit my blog. Today I'm having a quiet Thanksgiving with my family but I will be back tomorrow with the alpha to the Oregon kit. Until then, ponder on what you are thankful for. Blessings to you! ~Barbara

Oregon Elements

I have seen these date wheels in the scrappin' world so I decided to try my hand at designing one. Please be kind as this is the first time I have made a date wheel. I made a star if you don't want to use the arrow on the date wheel. Also, these are my first attempts at zippers. They are certainly not perfect but I like them. A big thanks goes to Deb at Scrappin Cop for the great resources. I had to throw in some buttons too! As always, leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Ramblings about 4shared

4shared did contact me and let me know that they have you log in when leaving comments now to prevent spam and abusive messages. With that said I think it's a hassle to leave a comment that way so I have 2 ways for you to leave a comment on my blog. You can always just post a comment under the actual post. I also have installed a new cBox on the right where you can leave a comment very easily. Either way, I obviously want to hear from you!

I have three new kits that I will be posting soon. One is called "Wood Meets Denim" which you have already seen a preview as I have "decorated" my blog with the design. My other two are called "Coldstone" and "Oregon". Mmm . . . which one should I post next? Let me know which you prefer!

Bear kit layout

Catherine from sent me this beautiful layout using the Bear kit. I would love to see how you are using my kits too so, please, e-mail me and send me your layout(s) or let me know where I can see them. Thanks, Catherine. What a beautiful job in capturing your mother's high school past!

Venice Paper Add-On

Here is the last part of the Venice kit. It is the Paper Add-on ...just a couple of papers that are fun to use a clipping mask with. I did e-mail 4shared and asked them why they changed the way people leave comments when downloading. I am awaiting an answer from them.

Commenting on 4shared

It seems that 4-shared (where you download my freebies) has changed about how you leave a comment. You now have to be logged in to leave a comment which means you need to open up an account if you don't already have one. It is a free account and I would greatly encourage you to open an account so you could leave a comment BUT if you don't want to go through all that you can just leave a comment right here on my site. If you scroll right underneath the post you will see a place that says "# comments". Click on that to leave a comment. Again, I really do read EVERY comment that is posted. O.K., I'll get off my soap box now.

Venice Alpha

I hope this finds you healthy as the days are getting colder in this part of the world. Here is the alpha for the Venice kit. I made this alpha with the thought that I would use it as a capital letter on a word and then use something else for the rest of the word. You can see how I used it in my layout if you scroll down. You, of course, are only limited by your imagination. I would love to see your layouts on any of my kits. One request: most of you do not leave any comment. It only takes a moment to do and I do read each and every one, so please, let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Venice Elements

Hello, It's seems like it's been forever since I've posted. This weekend we went to Jackson for another gymnastics meet and when we got home on Sunday we came home to find that our oldest cat had died while we were gone. My youngest daughter is taking it pretty hard. Sob! On top of that we are all sick with sinus colds and coughs. We are taking it easy today. Here are the elements for the Venice kit. I will post the alpha next. Oh, a big thank you to Deb and Gunhild for resources.

Venice Papers 2

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, depending on when you are reading this. Today I am taking my oldest daughter to a Biology lab and we will be there all day but I wanted to post the second installment to the Venice kit before I left. I personally like these papers better than the first ones. What do you think? 1st ones or 2nd ones? Click on the image to download them. Enjoy!

Venice Papers 1

I'm excited to share a new kit with you today. It's called the Venice kit and it has 5 parts to it. I've been watching to see which kit that I have offered so far is the most popular and it seems that a lot of you have enjoyed the Bear kit so this Venice kit is kind of similar. It has a lot of textured papers to it. I am giving you the 1st set of papers today but, truth be told, I am partial to the 2nd set of papers more but you'll have to come back for those! Oh, I did a couple of layouts of my daughters with this kit. I would love to hear from you! Enjoy!

Click on the image to download the papers.
