Scrapbook pages for my Best Friend.....

Oh yeah, I made these scrapbook pages today. I made them for my best friend in the whole world (Lori) who is the wonderful grandma to these two beautiful children, Ashleigh and Conner. I also made them for their wonderful mother, Amanda. Check them out.

This is NOT my kit. Everything is credited to Creative Victorian Designs. The kit is called Inherit Blessings and it is just gorgeous. I just wanted to share them. So, please visit her site and check out what she has to offer. She's also opening up a new store.


Hello again, I just wanted to show you an alpha that I will be giving to you soon. Its another wooden alpha......(yes I said wooden).......I downloaded some plug-ins to my DIP software today and finally learned how to really bevel stuff. Don't know about ya'll but I think this is my best one yet. I did a hi-contrast on it and deepened the colors so that it will look a little different from the others. Then I beveled it and added a rope border behind it. Oh man. I think it's going to look really good on you layouts. One of these day I'm gonna make a kit to go along with all of these wooden alphas. (Actually have one started but nowhere near finished.)
Anyway, here is a preview. I am in the process of making them all individual pngs because these are just too good to keep as one file. I think you will like them. Let me know what you think.

Pretty neat huh. Now you won't use the others. Haha!
I'll try to have it for you tomorrow or at the latest friday.
See ya soon....................

Just Saying Hello....

Hi everyone. I hope you don't mind but I took the song off of my slideshow...I love that song but it was driving me crazy to hear it all the time. So I hope that you don't mind the silence.

I also added to my slideshows and I'm putting one up with photos of my little JoJo. I have one of Shaylee already and I just can't forget my JoJo.

Also, I changed some of the things on my sidebar. I now have only my favorite blogs and site that I use. I just had too long of a list there. You need to check out the blogs though. There stuff is unreal. I downloaded a kit from Creative Victorian today that is just awesome. And she's still adding to it. And I know Jannis has a new one for Valentines on her blog. And Anita just put one up on hers the other day. Jannis and Anita have freebies but if you want the really nice stuff in the kits you have to become a member. Trust me its worth it. They're kits are awesome. And don't forget to check out the Creative Victorian blog. Her stuff is so delicate and elegant and just plain beautiful. And also please if you use their stuff please give credit where credit is due. These ladies are awesome.

My Sweet Valentine Pink Alpha....freebie

Hi everyone, I realize that I haven't posted for a little bit but I'm trying to come up with stuff for you.. Today I have a Valentine alpha to go into my Sweet Valentine Kit.

Now don't worry, I am not going to go all CANDY CANE on you again. I had just learned how to do this and I made an alpha using the technique. I found a new way to put borders of my art around alphas! YEAH! I just thought making it all pink would work for Valentines. I think it's pretty cute myself. You all can tell me what you think either here or on my 4shared.

Still working on the kit. But this is a start.
It's all in lower-case with numbers and symbols..Plus it's all in separate pngs files.

I used the technique around the preview too....HOw cool is that?

My Tabletop Alpha_Hi-Contrast .....FREEBIE!

Good Morning everyone.....Sorry I haven't been on here in a little bit. Thought maybe my bandwidth would go down a little but it hasn't. Oh, well. I'll just have to add to it later. I'm giving you a table top alpha today. It's actually from my moms tabletop...haha....! She thinks I'm crazy sometimes. I take photos of just about everything and use them in my scrapbooking. I swear, I am always either in scrapbook mode or photographic mode. And don't get me started on the artist side of things. When I draw people I get in a different mode for that too. You start analyzing how to shade things when you look at someone and then they start giving you the weird look. Crazy, huh. Oh, well.....the life on the wrong side of the brain. What can you do? Ha Ha.

Anyway, I have this freebie for you today. I hope that you like it. I have several more where these came from. Just playing with them.

I do hope that you enjoy it!!

See you all later

You can get the Tabletop alpha HERE

My Candy Cane Grid Alpha...Freebie!

The other day I updated my 4shared to 20gb with their new promotion that they are having. I have been having bandwidth problems. My bandwidth keeps getting used up at the beginning of the month. They say that it's due to uploading and downloading of my account. I had only used 9% of the 10gb that I had, so I upgraded to the 20gb which leaves 6% of the 20gb being used. Thought that would end my bandwidth problem but nooooo. I have to now buy additional bandwidth. Yikes! I've hardly put anything on there. Only what I've given yall, but that's no where near 20gb. Each additional bandwidth is $5 for 10gb worth; whatever that means. Crazy huh?

I plan to put lots more on there so I'm gonna have to see what I need to do. I wonder if everyone else has this problem. If anyone knows anything about bandwidth and what to do about it please let me know. I don't know if I don't understand exactly or what.

So, if after this one my bandwidth may be reached. Guess we will see. I'll figure it out.

I know I said I'd show you what I learned the other day, but I decided to give you this alpha instead. I know it's also, xmasy but maybe you can use it for valentines too. I was just playing when I made this one.

This is a alpha made of my red grid papers that had a candy cane grid on them. Then I surrounded it with pepperment candy. Looks pretty cool.

Hi again,

Just wanted to drop in and let you know that I haven't disowned you..haha....I just got a little eye-weary from the computer. Been on it too long. I learned something cool from some of my software the other day and played on it too long. Ended up falling asleep at the computer because of it. Decided I need to take a little time off. But I promise to have something for you in just a little bit. Got to keep you all coming back right? I'll have to show you something that I learned.........or moreas, the result of it.

So, sit back and give me just a little bit to upload and I'll be right back. Talk a little later.

Hi all.....I'm computered out right now...

Hi guys, just wanted to say hello and let you know that I will be back with something for you soon. I'm just a little computered out right now. Everytime I get on here I tend to start doddling off. You would think that I haven't slept at all. I think my eyes are tired. But I have so much to do.

Anyway, I'll be back later to give you something. Hope you enjoyed the alpha.

Take care and as always , happy scrappin'.

So Sorry about that....

So sorry that the download link was messed up below. I have now fixed the problem. That's the problem with working nights, you kind of goof up sometimes from lack of sleep. Plus being my bday and cowboys play-offs didn't help me.

But rest assured to you all it is fixed and ready for download. Again sorry and thank you for letting me know. I was wondering why noone had downloaded it.

My Xmas Brads_________Freebie!

I decided to add my glass brads to the collection. I could have done more with them but this all I got to. I hope you can use them. Thanks for all your wonderful comments.

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

That's Funny....

Hi all, this blogging goes to Carolyn again. She came back and downloaded the rest of my stuff after I re-added the correct link. She asked me how I made my candy cane stuff and if I just broke up a bunch of pieces of candy canes to make the alpha or did I do it digitally. Well, not that I want to tell you guys ALL my secrets. But most of these came from 1 small candy cane. I scanned it making it digital and then i broke it up into a million pieces (on the computer) not in my scanner. So, you could say I kinda did both. Great question to ask. I am very proud of my alpha and it did take forever to do. I absolutely guarantee that there is no other one like it. I created each letter individually so they each have their own little aura about them. HaHa.

Thank you guys so much for liking everything. It was and is so much fun to do. So, I hope that kind of answered your question Carolyn. Now I am off to see what I can give to you t0day.

Take care and happy scrappin' everyone......................

Sorry about that........

Hi again, Thank you so much Carolyn for informing me about the link below on my fancy candy canes. I usually copy and paste from 4shared and I guess I didn't recopy when I pasted the link after I put the message papers on here. So
sorry......but it is now fixed. The link is right now.

And no you're not nuts.....I just messed up. So, please come back and download.

Thank you.

My Fancy Candy Canes____Freebie!

Well, My best friend has been begging me for these. It took me a while to make the preview. Not everything is pictured. There are 4 frames, lots of safety-pin and pins. Several shapes. And lots and lots of other goodies. I was just playing with them. I'm beginning to think I'm all candy caned out. HaHA.
Anything that you can do with candy canes, I practically did here. So, here is for the long and anticipated wait for some of you. I hope you do enjoy these. They were really fun to make.

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

MyXmasHolidayMessagePapers.....FRIDAY FREEBIE!

Hi all......yeah yeah, I know.....more papers........But I just couldn't resist.
I made these the other night just messing around. I've seen a lot of papers with writing on them and I just wondered if I could make come cool ones myself. And Look and Behold I did!
I kind of like the multi colored ones but I gave you 4 different solid colored ones to match.
I think they came out pretty well. Probably went over board but oh, well. I am sure you guys won't complain, right?
So, enjoy these papers too and as always let me know what you thing.
Have a great day everyone. Now I am going to sleep.

Finally.....Now MyXmasCandyCane Papers...FREEBIE!

Finally....I got them downloaded. Not sure what happened there. I don't usually have any problem with 4shared. I just had problem just getting on the site. Told me to check my connects which are fine. Oh, well....I got it finally.
So now I'm giving you my Candy Cane papers. I hope you like them. Here's the preview again.

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

Don't Worry......The days not over yet.

Hi everyone. I am trying to download my papers onto 4shared and for some reason cannot get onto the site. So, please be patient with me. I will get them as soon as I can get on there.
Here are some previews of the papers that I will be giving out.

Here are my Xmas Grid Papers......

Inside 3 of the papers I have placed 2 candy canes with ribbons inside of each square.

And these are My Xmas Candy Papers. 3 papers contain nothing but candy canes in peppermint, spearmint and cinnamon. The other 3 papers are of candy canes, hard candy and ribbon candy also in the same colors. I really like how these came out.

And these are my Xmas Grungy Papers.

How do you like the candy cane safety pin. Pretty cool, huh!

And last of all, these are my Xmas Ribbon Papers.

Some are made of nothing but a buch of bows mingled together. The othere is a bunch of bows with ribbons shaped kind of like lattice and are arranged over my grungy papers. I thought they looked kind of neat too.

My Mom lives in a cabin on the lake. And it snowed xmas. We got up and this is what the morning looked like over the lake. Pretty huh? Everything was covered in ice. Unfortunately, the snow didn't stick and it melted away but we had ice everywhere.

I thought these leaves looked pretty coool!

Now to the good part. Today I am giving you the stockings in both pastels and primary colors. Hopefully, I can have a preview of the papers done today so I can give you those tomorrow. Can't use my stuff without the papers, can you? LOL

Anyway, here is the preview of the pastel stockings:

MyXmasSantaHats FREEBIE!

Hey everyone, today I am giving away my santa hats. I am also giving the pastel santa hats that I had given previously with the BabiesFirstXmasQuickpages . I had to resize them so you can use them in scrapbook flair. Now they should work fine now.

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

Saturday, January 5, 2008


Hi guys, Wow, this kit is really huge. It's taking forever to get everything uploaded for you. Plus getting all the previews. It's so big that I don't think I could have possibly given it all out at once.
I have recently made more quickpages with some of the layouts that I showed you. I'll probably give them out tomorrow.
Next, will be the papers. There are going to be at lease 20 assorted papers. Still making previews on that one.
Then I still have the fancy candy canes to give to you. Your not going to believe some of those when you get them. They are so cool and fun. I still keep coming up with them. A preview is going to be pretty time consuming. But don't let that bother you. I will still share.

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

Yeah!__My Candy Cane Alpha......Freebie!!!

Hello everyone again, Boy you seem to all be waiting for my Xmas Candy Cane Alpha. I've read lots of messages saying you can't wait for it. I actually meant to put it up before the frames and I didn't reallize till I read your messages that I hadn't actually put it up on my blog. For some reason I thought I already had. Guess my preview messed myself up. Ha Ha.....

Anyway, so here it is. I hope that you all like it. I made each letter completely by itself. Usually I make all of them and then edit them all together; but not this one. Each one is an individual png file. They never were together on the same page. So I spent a lot of time on this one. I have used it on several of my pages using scrapbook flair and it works perfectly.

Here are a few of the pages that I made using the alpha or from my kit. I know I haven't given you everything yet; but I was just trying it out.

And you can see my layouts and others at scrapbook flair with this link:

Candy Cane Frames____FREEBIE!

Hi everyone. I am giving away my candy cane frames today. There are 10 frames total in different flavors or colors, whichever you prefer. Then I made some in different shapes too. I tell you, I have just been having too much fun with this. You can tell because my housework isn't getting done like it should...haha! I just get ideas and I have to go with it.
So please let me know what you think again. You have all left such nice messages. If YOU come up with something you want me to try just let me know and I will sure attempt it. Can't make any promises but I will go crazy trying. I have some other really, really cool stuff with the candy canes that I will share later. Making the preview is going to be fun. Might not be able to show everything in it without overlappin a lot of stuff but you will love it. That's the part where I have gone a little crazy. It will be worth it in the end.
So please enjoy the freebie. And please don't forget to leave comments.........Thank You!

Sorry, Link is now being added to my new store.

Boy, I sure hope that you all like candy canes. I have gone bonkers for candy canes. I also hope that you don't mind that My Xmas kit is getting huge. Possibly as big as the Winterwonderland kit and I think I like it better. So, if you get tired of all this let me know. And I am sorry that I haven't had this out sooner. I'm not as good as these other more qualified designers. But I keep coming up with stuff. My fiance wants me to try selling stuff but I have no idea about stores or anything like that. STill checking that out. For now I'm offering you freebies. I really love all the comments that you give to me. Keeps me inspired and obviously I get inspired by almost anything. Haha.

So fare warning, I have candy cane alphas, numbers and symbols. ( its awesome if I say so myself.) I will probably give that to you tomorrow because I'm still working on the numbers. Just to give you a heads up heres a preview for you.

I also have candy canes and hard candy and the ribbon candy that I am giving you today. Also, have the candy cane frames plain and also some that I decorated with xmas stuff. I also made some pretty cool stuff like flowers with the candy canes. I even made a safety pin with them. You are just gonna have to see it to believe it.

So, I hope you have a huge sweet tooth. Oh yes, I made really cool papers with my candy canes. Can't wait to share everything with you. It's gonna be great.

So here are the candy canes that I am giving you now.

(PS. Do you like my ribbon paper up there in the preview...That ones coming too)

Now in my store at April's Scrapaholic & Photomania
