I just couldn’t let the opportunity to give you folks a freebie pass me by … especially with it being iNSD weekend. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve put together one of my mini kits so I decided to make one for you and, to make things EVEN better, I used Mother’s Day as the theme. I came up with the name — A Mom’s Hug — while looking for some sayings to use for word art.
The kit has 5 papers and 21 unique elements and LOTS of bold colors in this (it’s been rather warm here the last few days and I was definitely thinking summer). There should be plenty of stuff for making a great layout; then all you have to do is add your favorite photo and you’ll have a perfect gift for Mom on Mother’s day!!!
You can download this kit by clicking on the preview … and remember you must be logged in to download it.
This is rather large download (72 MB), so if you have any trouble downloading it please let me know and I’ll break it into 2 files for you.
I don’t have a layout for you just yet, but I do have an add-on … more papers —
However, you can’t download them here; you need to download them from my Facebook page (yes, another gimmick to get you to “like” me). You’ll find the link to download this on my Fan Freebie tab.
I had SO much fun making this for you and I was able to use a lot of the commercial use products I’ve been busy creating. I can’t wait until my store opens so you can see them. I hope you enjoy this and be sure to share any layouts you make with it.
It’s come to my attention that I forgot to provide a download link for my Southwestern Venture kit. Thank you Donna for being so persistent and patient with me!! Click on the preview below to download and remember you must be logged in.
I’m now thinking I need to provide a single index to my kits … guess I need to put that on my todo list!Read More
As is typical with me, I have created an add-on to my Spring Bling kit. It’s a pack of 8 more papers which will give you a total of 16 papers. However, I’ve added a bit of a twist for this download … it can only be downloaded from my Facebook page.
If you’ve never downloaded something from someone’s Facebook page, here’s how you do it. Go to my page — http://on.fb.me/XqCI2w — Click on the Fan Freebie tab — and, since you’ve never done this before, click on “Like” at the top right of the page. You’ll then see the preview above with the words “Just click the preview to download” — then do what it says … click the preview. Hopefully, your download will start … if it doesn’t, let me know by either posting on my Facebook page or adding a comment to this post.Read More
It’s been WAY too long since I did anything “fun” and then given it away. Instead I’ve been busting my bum pulling together products for a commercial use store which is still in the works.
Yesterday, I made the decision to take a break from creating content that is under appreciated and decided to make something that I know will be appreciated … a freebie kit for you, my readers. I call it Spring Bling and bling it definitely has. Check out the preview …
It uses the color palette that I selected for Round 4 for the Designer Darling contest that I dropped out of. I just couldn’t let it go to waste and you all are the beneficiaries of my need to do something a bit more creative with my time. As I learned, I did a layout with it just to make sure it would be workable.
The picture I used is from my photo session at my friend’s mother’s house. This lady always has a bunch of something blooming at her house so I’ve learned to bring my camera with me whenever I visit. This time I was well rewarded … to the point that I ran out of juice in my camera batteries.
Back to your freebie. As always, you must be logged in to download the kit and you can download it by clicking on either preview or just clicking here. Be sure to keep an eye on me because you all know I’m not typically one to release a kit and not want to add to it. I’ll also try to do a better job of posting stuff … even if I don’t have any “good news.”Read More
WOW!!! I can’t believe all the wonderful comments you all have been leaving … and the amazing number of downloads for the last 2 kits. THANK YOU!!!
And now for the borders that go along with all the other pieces of my kit. You can download them by clicking on the preview.
Be sure to stay tuned for Round 3 … that is if I make to Round 3 …
Again … thank you for all the love AND, especially, the votes. HUGS!!! JillRead More
Well, I finally completed a layout I liked with my Southwestern Venture from Round 2 of the Designer Darling contest. And, as is typically with me, I felt the need to for more stuff, which can be downloaded by clicking the preview below (the background paper is part of my solids freebie from yesterday’s post).
This is the layout I created which has pieces from the mini, solid paper stock and the add-on above. The photo was taken during our family road trip to Arizona last year.
I still owe you all some borders and will get them uploaded as soon as I actually make them.
Also, if you have the time, I’d love it if you could vote for me (once the poll is set up). It should be up soon and can be found in this area of the forum — http://bit.ly/11IWNIS.Read More
I’ve just now finished my Round 2 kit for the Designer Darling contest. I did a southwestern theme … been wanting to do one of those for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity to do one. I gave it the name Southwestern Venture since the inspiration was based on Deanna’s (Flower Scrap’s) trip to the Scrapbooking Expo last fall.
Like the last one, for the first week you have to download it from my forum post – http://bit.ly/12ADNXO. Also, it turns out this is partially a “voting” contest. If you have the inclination to sign up for their forum and vote for me I would be ecstatic. My preview for the kit is below and I would LOVE to hear what you think about it.
And, while I did so a partial layout with this kit, it’s nothing I want to show off just yet. HOWEVER, I have a freebie for you that you can download by clicking on the preview below.
I realize not everybody likes to work with BOLD papers, so I made some simpler, solid ones. I also plan on making some borders to go with the kit, so be sure to check back tomorrow for those.Read More
As promised, freebies to go along with my Round 1 kit – Here Comes the Sun. All but the cluster were items I had made for the kit, but didn’t make the cut (there was a finite number of items you could put into a kit). If you haven’t learned the routine yet … just click on the preview to download.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the preview gallery for the Designer Darling contest, please do it soon. There are a LOT of freebies for you to download, but the links will only be good for about a week … and remember to leave a lot of love … especially for mine … LOL! … it’s called marketing, right?Read More
It’s a Mini Kit that contains 8 papers (4 patterns and 4 solids) and 15 elements. I called it Here Comes the Sun. It reminded me of that hint of blue sky behind the whitish-gray clouds and the sun just wanting to show off its light. Not quite Spring, but a small promise of what’s to come.
AND, as I learned, I did a layout with it. I managed to use every item in the kit except for the white frame. Check it out:
To download this kit, you need to go to my forum post for the contest — http://bit.ly/WMYboY. This is only for a week; I will then move it over to this site and update my post. If you have time, I’d love to hear what you think. Also, check back tomorrow for some freebies to go with this kit … and those you will be able to download here.
The above kit is now available, for registered users, by clicking on the preview above.Read More
All good things must come to an end … well, the freebies aren’t really ending, but this series is. Today’s freebie is 4 Quick Pages made from my kit Just Me and the Moon. Two of the pages are from my layouts and two more are brand spanking new. The file is a little on the large size, so if you’re having problems downloading it, just send me a note or comment below.
O.K., you know the drill, click on the preview to download your quickpages AND please try to make some time to cheer not only me, but all the participants in the Designer Darling Competition …
