Got Freebies?

Yes, here I am again with another freebie from my Mediterranean Spice kit. Today you get another alpha (all individual files this time) and a paper. I really like how both of these turned out, but they aren't quite a match to the kit. I hope to have a preview of the full kit up for you in a day or two.
I've enlarged the paper in the preview so you can see the detail.
Thank you for your interest, but this Freebie has been retired.

Please show some love.

Do not share the files...send your friends here to get it, please!

I have put together a Creative Team! Kim, Kristen and Linda are putting some awesome layouts together that I hope to post soon. These ladies are so talented, and I feel very fortunate that they want to help me!!!

If you are interested in being on the Creative Team, details can be found HERE. You may have to log in to view this information.

Another Freebie!

I'm sorry this is late, but I've been watching the final season of Alias on DVD, and I just couldn't stop!

Here is the second installment of Mediterranean Spice Freebies for you. This time it's an embroidered alpha (all on one sheet) and a nicely textured paper.

Thank you for your interest, but this Freebie has been retired.

Well, as promised, I do have a Freebie for you. I had an inspiration for a kit last night, and started on it this morning...and you get the benefits! I hope to have the kit done in about a week, but until then, you'll get all kinds of cool matching freebies...almost a kit by itself!

First up are some papers..they don't quite go with the theme of the kit, but they are made from the same color palette. Each has a rich texture that I'm sure will add a wonderful depth to your layouts!

Thank you for your interest, but this Freebie has been retired.

Tomorrow you should find another freebie...but I'm not telling you what it is - LOL!
Leave some love and let me know what you think! And, remember, please don't share the link or the files...just share a link to my blog page if you think your friends might like this freebie!

See you tomorrow!

Okay, I realize I said last week that I would have a new Freebie for you on Friday, and it's already Wednesday and NOTHING! I must apologize. It has been a crazy few days, and the migraines have decided to visit! I do have some nice things for you, and I will post them by this Friday. As a way to say sorry I will have 2 Freebies for you and leave them up longer than a week. AND, from now on, I will not remove the current Freebie until the new one is posted.

I have some things that will be going into the store over the weekend, too. So, be sure and visit

Here are some layouts I made yesterday and today:

This one is a picture of my older daughter playing chess with her dad. I used some items from my new Giggles AddOn kit. And, you may spot a future freebie on the page, as well!

Here is another recent layout I made with a quick page from my Basics Quick Page Collection. I got some fabulous shots of the changing leaves on the hill. It was a slightly foggy day, so everything has a misty look to it, and the colors are not as bright as they usually are. Oh, but the leaves are gorgeous! I hope I can get more pictures of the trees taken before the leaves start to fall off!

I should have these kits in the store soon!

Sharing Some New Things

Layout made with Suffolk Garden by Marcee Fairchild
available at

Here is a new layout I made with my latest kit, Suffolk Garden. Our rosebud thought pulling out the grass and letting the wind take it out of her hands was the best thing!

This kit is HERE in the Deco-Pages store. It has 10 patterned papers, 16 buttons, 4 solid cardstocks, 4 bows, 2 beaded bars, 9 decorative brads, 2 flowers, 16 ribons, 12 tags and a silver stick pin. The shades of rose and green will compliment almost any kind of layout. I have two matching freebies posted at Deco-Pages - one is just for Club-Deco members, so come on by and join the best digital scrapbook club!

The weather has changed to mostly cold with drizzle, so I have an awful sinus headache. I plan on going to bed early and getting some rest.
I haven't been feeling that creative lately, but I hope to have some more layouts to share in the next few days.
Don't forget, the freebie will be taken down on Thursday sometime, so make sure you download it before then. But, I should have a new freebie for you Friday. Share some love and let me know what you would like to see.

I Hate Colds!

I have been sick for the past 4 days, and I am not feeling much better yet. I do want to let you know that I will be putting up more freebies this weekend. I am going to try to post a freebie once a week - leaving it up for a week so you have time to collect it - and then putting up a new one. may not happen just like that.

I have several new kits in the store: Basics: Brown, Giggle, and More Just Desserts (the Mega Kit). I will have a Quick Page Kit called Desserts in the store over the weekend. I made 8 Quick Pages from the Just Desserts and More Just Desserts kits - there is also a bonus of 2 alphas!

Well, time for breakfast - waffles!!!
I should have a freebie posted soon!

Layout Share!!!

I have actually had some time to get a few layouts done...although this is a little misleading since I make a layout for every kit to show how the kit can be used. I hope to get some done this weekend with other people's kits for a change - LOL.

But, I do want to share these with you. They were all made with my latest kits.

This one was made with my Giggle kit that is now in the Deco-Pages store HERE. It shows my first attempt of creating text on a path in Photoshop, and I think it turned out fairly well. I adapted a layout template by Rebecca Myers (The Daily Scrap).

Here is one I made with my Basics: Brown kit that should be in the store tomorrow. I just love all the felt and corduroy textures - thanks to Atomic Cupcake and Tandika Star (DigiScrapDesigners).
This is my daughter in first grade on Scarecrow Day (a Halloween - but not Halloween - fun day at school. I used a template by Sarah Batdorf (Scrap Girls).

And finally, this layout was created with More Just Desserts, which should also be in the store tomorrow - or at least sometime this weekend. This kit is a MEGA kit - well over 200 MB (something like 254 when unzipped) - so it will take a while to upload the files - LOL!
This is Nana. I really love this picture of her. It is the only studio photo I have of her. One of these days, on a visit home, I am going to sit down with my mom and go over all the photos we have so I can have details for scrapbooking and family records. It's one of those things I think everyone should do - but distance and time sometimes get in the way.

I have to sign off now. It's time for work once again! I hope you have a great day. I will be removing the previous freebies sometime later today, so you may want to grab them now. I have to make room for more freebies - LOL!

Sneak Peeks!

As usual, I am running late this morning, so I don't have time for much. But, I would like to share with you some previews of my upcoming kits!
The first one is Giggle - a fun and bright kit that is more suited for girls, but the orange and turquoise could work for boys, too! I also have another Basics kit out. This one is Brown, and it is full of fall elements and rich textures like leather, corduroy and felt. These should be in the Deco-Pages store by next week.

I am also working on getting the October Color Challenge Kits together and into the store for the SUPER price of $1.99!!!
And, there will be a MEGA Add-on kit for the Color Challenge called More Just's a small preview of that:Plus, I have been inspired by Jen, a co-designer at Deco-Pages, so I am working on a Southwest-themed kit called Totem. I also have several element and Quick Page kits planned. BUSY, BUSY, BUSY ME!!!

Come by and look around. Our Club Deco membership is an awesome deal!!!! And, I have several freebies just for Club Members - one matches the Basics: Brown kit.
