Are You Wild & Cheap?

Then I have got the deal for you!!  It is called the Divine Diva Deal over at Divine Digital.   Every week a kit is on sale for only $2.  This week it is my kit Wild @ Heart.  This is a really huge kit of 33 papers and over 300 elements, so $2 is quite a steal.

I'm not even going to try and list everything in it.  Just go here and read it all for yourself.  Then buy it for just $2 this week because you aren't going to find a better deal even with all the New Year's sales.

But wait, it gets better....  Since this is the Divine Diva Deal, there is also the Divine Diva Challenge.  It goes like this:  (1) buy the kit, (2) do a layout by Jan 6th using at least one paper and 3 elements from the kit and post it in the appropriate place in the gallery and a link in the forum, and then (3) you get this:

 The over 100 MB Add On kit with 7 papers and over 70 elements for free!!  So that is like all together over 650 MB, 40 papers and around 400 elements for just $2 and a little bit of work from you slapping together a layout and posting it.  Is that a deal or what?!  So just go over to the Divine Digital Forum Here to read the offical rules and get started (yes, you will have to register for the forums - it is separate from the store registration.)

But waitaminute.... that is not all.....  If you are just totally cheap I also have this freebie for you!
Three QuickPages plus a few more embellishments.  It is in the store, so you will have to register for the store in order to get it.  I promise the store will not send you disgusting spam!! (I hate spam - I would not sell at a store that did that!)  So get the freebie here.

And everybody have a happy and safe New Year's!!

Merry Christmas! Have some freebies!!!

I hope everybody is having a Merry Christmas, or at least a nice Saturday.  Santa stopped by and instructed me to post these freebies for you...
This is 16 papers that color co-ordinate with my various Paws 4 Christmas kits available at Divine Digital here.  Only 7 of the papers actually have pawprints.  The others just color co-ordinate (or sorta do, not exactly sure where that neon pink came from!), so they can be used for non-pet layouts.  Seven of the papers were offered as a freebie last year, but the others are new.

And speaking of last year, I am re-listing the freebie A Winter's Kiss in case any of you missed it.

There are 5 papers, 4 frames and 5 snowflakes.  You can also consider these freebies to be a sneak peek of what is to come.  I will have more like the snowflake papers as a part of Project Pattern on the 31st.  And my contribution to the January Team Divine collab kit is very similar to A Winter's Kiss.

Speaking of the Team Divine collab kits, have you seen the December collab kit Up On A Rooftop?

Isn't it spectacular?  And it is only $5!  You can get it here (tell them Ann O sent you!).

And before I give you the freebie links, I am going to show you a layout I did.  A Facebook friend posted this poem.  I thought it was so cute I just had to scrap it with this pic of Streaker.
Almost everything is from the various Paws 4 Christmas kits.  The two chipboard reindeer are from my contribution to the Up On A Rooftop Team Divine Collab.  In case you can't read it, here is the poem (author unknown):

Tonight's my first night as a watchdog,
And here it is Christmas Eve.
The children are sleeping all cozy upstairs,
While I'm guardin' the stockin's and tree.

...What's that now---footsteps on the rooftop?
Could it be a cat or a mouse?
Who's this down the chimney?
A thief with a beard---
And a big sack for robbin' the house?

I'm barkin', I'm growlin', I'm bitin' his butt.
He howls and jumps back in his sleigh.
I scare his strange horses, they leap in the air.
I've frightened the whole bunch away.

Now the house is all peaceful and quiet again.
The stockin's are safe as can be.
Won't the kiddies be glad when they wake up tomorrow
And see how I've guarded the tree!

Sale and more

OK, I've been a bad girl about updating this blog.  I've just been updating the Facebook page.  Holly Jolly Holidayfest is going on over at Divine Digital right now.  I've got another sale coupon code for you.
And as part of the Holiday fest, there is a new mini-kit in my store that is FREE, but for ONE DAY ONLY!!  It is free on today, Saturday, December 11th.  But if you miss it the price is only going up to $1.

So go check out my store and see if you can get the one day only freebie here.  I have some new stuff in the store, especially stuff for scrapping your pets at Christmas.  And I'm still behind on doing things.  The Chippies are still in the grab bags and available at that low price.  I am trying to get a freebie packaged, too.

And on Wednesday, December 13th, I will be hosting a challenge at the Divine Digital Forums for Holly Jolly Holidayfest.  The theme will be "Scrapping your pets at Christmas".  Everyone who participates will get a special freebie of some blinged out to the max pawprints that co-ordinate with several of my kits as well as the December and January Divine Digital Collab kits.  I haven't packaged them up yet, but here are a couple (there's 23 in all):

I am thinking that maybe there should be one grand prize of the winner's choice of any of my kits?  What do y'all think?

***** UPDATE ***** eeekkk!! my bad!!  December 13th is Monday, not Wednesday and it is now!!  You can find the challenge with all the rules in the Divine Digital Forum here  And I made more bling pawprints, so it is up to 37 for participating.

Grab Bag Sale and Free Shopping Bags!!

Divine Digital has a grab bag sale going on for 3 days only!!
And yes, I have not one, but two personal use grab bags in it!!

Why the "Must Love" titles?  Those are hints as to what the product is - and the product is for animal lovers.   The color swatch done in glitter and chipboard is another hint.  And waitaminute - I think I see a few critters trying to sneak out of the bag!!!  Ok, I will tell you what is in there:  each grab bag contains 5 chipboard animal element packs - one set in each color.  Grab bag #1 Must Love Cats & Dogs is all chipboard cats and dogs as well as few extra pet things like dogbones and fishbones.  Grab bag #2 Must Love Other Animals is all of the other chipboard animals (horses, rabbits, elephants, dolphins, birds, etc).  I had to break it up into two grab bags because there is so many animals.  The 5 sets in Cats & Dogs together are approximately 430 mb, and the 5 sets in Other Animals are approximately 450 mb.  (To get an idea of what the finished product looks like, but in a different color, check out my kit "Eclectic Mix 1 - only there is a lot more!)  Each set is specially priced at only $2, but just for the limited sale.  After that the grab bags will be gone and the 10 individual sets will go in the store at $1 each.  So buy now!!  When and where else are you going to get over 400 mb of stuff for only $2??

So purchase Grab Bag #1 "Must Love Cats & Dogs" here for only $2 for a limited time!
And purchase Grab Bag #2 "Must Love Other Animals" here for only $2 for a limited time!

And oh yeah, freebie ???  Did somebody say there was a freebie???

I have a little freebie for you of 5 shopping bags made from papers in my "Paws 4 Me" and "Batikin' Me Crazy 4 Paws" kits.  (These are the kits that the chipboard animals in the grab bags color co-ordinate with - and these kits are still on sale!!!)  You know me, I always make several variations of something before making up my mind which one I like best (if I can make up my mind).  And it just seemed like a waste to just delete these shopping bags after making them for the grab bag previews!!
So download your "Free Shopping Bags" on 4 shared here.

Party tonite, New Kit, New Freebie

I have a new kit and a freebie sampler for you.  But first, I'm going to plug the party tonight with lots of things to win including some great freebies (even if they aren't by me) and a $5 coupon to my store.  And since just about everything is on sale, that's a great deal!

I think this post in the forum is the starting/information point.
And this is my new kit Coraline:
Kit includes:
16 papers + 3 paper tear pieces
14 glittery frames
11 fancy flowers + 1 flower border
2 decorative flourishes
7 buttons + 4 center stitches for them
6 butterflies and 7 birds
3 bows and 15 total ribbons (8 flat + 3 curled + 4 folded)
3 ricraks and 2 lines of stitching
5 photo corners and 4 photo prongs
3 paper clips and 5 staples
6 journaling tags

With a total of approximately 220 MB you will be able to do many layouts with this kit.
Personal use. High resolution 300 ppi. Papers are 12" x 12" jpg format. Elements in png format. Drop shadows for preview purposes only, except stitching lines and staples do have drop shadows for the holes.

And the freebie Coraline Xtras Includes:

6 papers
2 flowers and 1 flower tag
1 peacock
1 bow
1 border/multi-layered curved ribbon thingy

Right now the Coraline Xtras freebie is only available through my store at Divine Digital.  This means that you do have to register and put it in your cart and checkout.  But it is free.  However, you may have to wait a little bit to download it as right now zero dollar orders are not automatically processed, but have to be manually approved.  Sorry for the inconvience, but I hope you will think it is worth it.  (And if you buy the kit there is no wait.)  Here are the links:

****  Update April 2012 - Coraline is now for sale at Berry Sweet Scraps.  Xtras freebie is also there ****

New Kit, New Freebie and Sale extended

I am so tired!  I have been working hard on getting a new kit done.  It is part of this week's Project Color at Divine Digital:
Everybody who participates uses the same color scheme so that all of the kits will go together as a big mega-kit.  And this is my part, "Paws 4 Me"

Paws 4 Me is a different kind of pet kit. It is like a regular kit, just with paws on items. However, there are also co-ordinating papers and embellishments without paws so that you don't overload on paws. Paws 4 Me is for scrapping your pets with a more sophisticated look.
The kit is approximately 275 MB and contains:

18 papers (5 grungy solids and 13 patterned - 9 of those with paws)
12 flat ribbons and 3 curled ribbons with bows and 13 ricraks
17 frames (5 single frame, 3 doubles and 9 triples)
18 prong fastners and 9 binder clips and two staples sets
10 buttons and 8 bows
12 flowers and 10 flourishes
10 journaling tags
16 individual pawprints

That is a total of 140 elements.

All done in high resolution 300 ppi. Papers are 12" x 12" jpg format. Elements are in png format. Personal use, but scrapping for others for gifts and digital photo swaps is permitted. Please see TOU file.

But the best thing is that it is specially priced at only $2, but for a limited time!

And I have extended the iDSD sale prices:
So please go buy something!!

And yes, there is a small sampler freebie of some leftovers for you.  That was the first picture in this blog post.  So here are your links:

***  Update April 2012 - kit is now for sale at Berry Sweet Scraps and freebie has been enhanced.  Look for new post with new links ******

Wild About Blue?

Then have I got a freebie for you!!
And if you are just plain wild, then you will be happy to know that "Project Pattern" is returning this week to Divine Digital and the theme is Animal Prints!
And in case you haven't figured it out, the freebie goes with my Project Pattern kit, which is titled "Wild Blues."  Aw come on now, you know I couldn't do just regular ordinary animal prints!!

Don't let the preview fool you - there is a whole lot more to this kit in the way of elements than I could fit on there to show you.

There are eight animal print papers and seven co-ordinating grungy solid papers for balance. A multitude of frames, frame wraps and co-ordinatiing bows are all in separate files so that you can mix-n-match (and do your own drop shadows the way you want them). Two versions of each frame are included: horizontal and verticle for correct shadowing.

This kit is approximately 280 MB and contains:

15 Papers (8 animal prints and 7 grungy solids)
34 Frames and 5 Frame Wraps
27 Bows
18 Flowers
13 Brads
7 Binder Clips
8 Ribbons and 8 RicRaks
6 Journaling Tags

High resolution 300 ppi.  Papers are 12" x 12" in jpg format.  Elements in png format.  Personal use, but scrapping for others for gifts or digi photo swaps is permitted (please see TOU file). 

And the best thing is that this huge kit is on sale for only $2 but only for one week!!  And I have also put all items (except $1 items) in my store on sale, too.

***** Update April 2012 - kit is now on sale at Berry Sweet Scraps and freebie has been redone - look for post with updated links  *****

And happy scrapping!!

Need Some Bling In Your Halloween?

Hmmm.... is there an echo in this blog?  Ok then, need more bling in your Halloween?
But first it is finally time for the

I am now selling my products exclusively at Divine Digital!  There was a big delay because the site crashed back in May thanks to some hackers.  Getting the site back up even required a change in host server companies. (Long story!)  But the site is back up and the designers are loading up their stores and I am loading up my new store.  There are new kits and new freebies in my store, so please go take a look!  However, with the change in host server companies some software customization is in the process of being rewritten.  So right now there are two restrictions: (1) free ($0) orders are not automatically processed.  Royanna has to manually approve them.  She tries to do this twice a day, but life happens so please be patient.  and (2) there is only one download per product.  Since my kits are usually big, this means some huge zip files that are going to be problems for anyone on dial-up.  (I haven't loaded my two biggest kits in the store because of this.)  Royanna says there are alternatives, so I can ask her if need be.  These restrictions are temporary, but we don't know for sure for how long.

So now back to our regulary scheduled sales pitch, er freebie....  Remember this kit from last year?  (Of course it now has a new preview!)

It really seemed a little bit incomplete, so I made more!!  Here's Part 2:
So now with the ribbon freebies you can just bling your Halloween layouts to the extreme!!  Here are some detailed close-ups:

Ok, since you have been so patient through the sales pitch, here are the links:

Check out my entire store here.  I've put stuff on SALE!!
Purchase HallowBling! 1 here.
Purchase HallowBling! 2 here
Purchase BOTH HallowBling! 1 and HallowBling! 2 at a DISCOUNT Price here.

And for your Freebie HallowBling! Ribbons you can download them from 4 Shared here or you can dowload them from Divine Digtal's server here (no need to go to the store, just click and download starts).

Come back soon, because things are starting to happen (and yes, another freebie!)

Flowers For You

I have been very busy slaving away over a hot computer.  But, still not ready for the "Big Announcement" though.  I don't want y'all to think I have forgotten you.  So I went through my hard drive and put together a little freebie for you.  It is title "Misc Flowers" because it is all flower stuff that doesn't necessarily go together.  Sometimes I was just playing around making stuff with commercial use overlays and actions that I had just bought and wanted to see what they would do.  Other times I was working on a particular kit, and the result was good, but not what I wanted for that kit.  Maybe I have hording tendencies because I didn't want to just delete them.  So I bundled a bunch of them together for you as a freebie. 

There are eight 12" x 12" 300 ppi high resolution papers.  There are two branches with flowers (kinda looks like one in the preview, but it's two) and 11 flowers of various colors and types.  Hopefully something will be just perfect for a layout you are working on.  Personal use, but scrapping for others for gifts and/or digital photo swaps is permitted.  Please read the enclosed TOU file.

Download "Misc Flowers" on 4 shared here.  Sorry for those on dial-up, but I was lazy and it is a rather big 75MB file.

Keep watching for the "big announcement" and please don't forget about me!!!

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Hopefully coming soon....

I am working on redoing all of my previews and zips.  I hope to be making a big announcement soon.  And yes, freebies will be coming, too!!

Get Funky with this freebie

They're loud.  They're proud.  They're funky and they're free!
I went through my hard drive and all the old papers on it and found these funky gems.  I thought maybe y'all could use them for a layout that needed an explosion of color.  The preview only gives hints of how loud and funky these papers are.  Some of you may be noticing the preview says "Funky Papers 2" and wondering why.... yes, Virgina, there was a previous freebie of funky papers.  I will relist it again for any who might of missed it.

So if you are brave and think your eyes and your computer monitor can handle all this color, here are your download links on 4shared:

Funky Papers 1 (the original)                                
Funky Papers 2 (the new)

My last freebie (a brick themed alpha and papers) did not get picked up by some of the freebie search engines, so if you missed it please scroll back 2 blog posts and get it.

Sunday, July 4, 2010

Coming Soon.....

I've had a bit of a break and gotten some time to scrap. I have a new kit almost finished. I've also been taking lots of pictures of butterflies on the mimosa tree in my backyard. So here is a special preview - a layout of some of the butterfly pics done with some of the items from the new kit:

As usual I am having trouble deciding what to name this kit.  I was thinking of "Coraline" or "Coraturq" since it is shades of coral and turquoise.  I am very open to suggestions.  Here are previews of the papers:

I hope to be in a store and have this new kit for sale by the end of the summer.  And yes, there will be a small sampler freebie to go with it.

Becky's Brick House Alpha and Papers

Becky is a wicked witch.  She says so herself.  (Seriously, her username over at A Cherry On Top is imwickedwitch.)  So when the wicked witch says she needs a red brick alpha and paper, I jump and make her one.  I don't want to be turned into a frog!  And since I have to load it up to 4shared to get it to her, y'all can download it, too.

There are 5 12" x 12" 300 ppi resolution jpg format papers.  3 have brick designs and 2 are just grungy.  The alpha is all upper and lower case, numbers and symbols that are on the keyboard.  However, it is a small alpha at only a little bit over an inch high.  Everything is in one file, so you will have to cut & paste the letters to get them out, but there is plenty of space between them.  (I was too busy jumping to get this done quicky and not become a frog to get them all in separate files.)  Dropshadows are just on the preview.

I still hope to be in a store by the end of the summer.  My mother continues to decline, but she seems to be having happier delusions now.  Thank you for all your words of support.

**** UPDATE **** here is Becky's layout:

I think it turned out great!!!  Here is Becky's description and credits for the other items:

This is a layout of my DD's soccer awards banquet where she was awarded first team all region goalie and second team all state goalie. The best award in her eyes came from her teammates who gave her the coveted "BRICK WALL" award for best defender. I could NOT have created this layout without the help of ANN, of AnnOminous designs who specially created the alpha and brick wall paper for this layout and Lilkoala (leslie) for the inspiration for the title. Scrapbooking is truly a collaborative artform!!!

Still Pawsitively Free

I'm baaaacckkkk.... and with another freebie for all the dog and cat lovers!

I found some papers that were just sitting on my hard drive and put some pawprint overlays on them to make them pet friendly.  And then I made some elements out of the papers.  It's a rather eclectic mix, but hopefully there will be something you can use for layouts of your darling furbabies.

And if you are wondering why it says "3" that's because there is an older freebie with the first two parts.  In case you missed it, I am relisting it again.

And here are your links on 4shared:

On the personal side, I want to thank everyone for the words of support.  I have some good news and a lot of bad news.  The good news is that I hope to be selling in another store in a couple of months, by summer's end and hopefully sooner.  The first bad news is that I did not get into the Alternative Teacher Certification program.  It was my fault.  I got completely mixed up about the test dates and how long it took to get the results.  I am just so stressed because my mother's condition just keeps getting worse.  She is very physically weak, unable to do almost anything for herself, even roll over in the bed.  She is also very mentally gone, very delusional.  And they don't seem to be happy delusions the majority of the time, but stressful delusions where she is running around trying to get something done.  She will be moving her arms around very slowly, and also moving her legs like she is marching.  Maybe she is reliving her Navy days.  It is getting harder and harder to understand her.  At first the words just did not form a sentence that made sense.  Now some of the words are slurred and not clear.  Physically her lower jaw is shifting and her lower teeth are in front of her upper teeth, especially on the left side.  I don't understand why this is happening.  I'm just trying to hang in there!
