A sample of my handcrafts for sale

Thursday, October 6, 2011


Happy October, one and all! Time is certainly flying! I tried something new for me and got involved in a neat challenge over at Cool Scraps Digital and tried my hand at a little design work. The challenge is called "CU for a PU Freebie".  The hostess of the challenge, Addie's Designs, provided a pack of CU (commercial use) elements, and the contest participants had to make something with them.  I'm definitely a newbie at this, but I worked up a pack of 6 papers and 10 elements.  The papers are full size, 12x12", 300 dpi; and the elements include 1 invitation, 2 frames, 2 recipe cards, 2 stickers, 2 brads, and 1 journaling card.  Hope you like!  Here's the preview . . .


Hop over and visit the CSD forum to collect all the other freebies available in this challenge!  There are some beauties!  Better still, if you hurry, you can participate in this challenge yourself.  The winner gets a $5.00 gift certificate to the store, and all participants get to keep the CU Pack of goodies!

By the way, from my last post, nobody guessed my middle name correctly so I suppose we'll just keep that a secret for another time!  LOL!  There were some good attempts!

Next up, I have a second FREEBIE for my faithful followers!  I present to you my OCTOBER PAPER PACK.  I've assembled 9 pretty full size papers with fitting color for this month, so I hope you can use them!  I also hope to keep this going throughout the year.  It started with me trying to design a paper with some text on it for the month, and it sort of grew from that.  These are 12x12", 300 dpi, and here is the preview . . .

and here is a closer look at the one paper idea that started this, the focal point of this pack:


I'm providing two places to download for these freebies, as I experienced running out of bandwidth for my downloads last month, and that's such a bummer for anyone trying to gather up some goodies!

Unzip your downloads promptly, as I've included a little something special in them!

I believe I've got a busy month ahead, but I hope to check back in before the goblins hit my front door!  Take care and enjoy the cool crisp air of Fall!

thank you for the element/journaling pack and October papers too. They look like great understated designs, that won't steal the photo's thunder too much!
