A Way To Get Freebies

BTW...one way to freebies that I make is to subscribe to the Scrapbook-Elements Newsletter HERE for the weekly news. I regularly contribute to the gifts there. I just loaded the gift below for some future gift giving. Never know when it will be featured, but what is there to loose for signing up, right? There is a gift every week. Last time I snagged an AddOn Kit to the one featured in the preview below- Cathy Krenek's "Spring Is In The Air" and I used some of the elements for my gift.

Go ahead, sign up  and have fun scrapping! ;-)

I'm off to make another gifty...just trying to decide which kit to play with.....aaaahhhh what a delightful 'problem' to have! Whoooot!

It's Been A While

Well I realize that many people follow the blog purely for the freebies. Sorry about that, but for the foreseeable future I will not be able to offer freebies. As soon as I find a solution, I'll remedy that. Seeing as I *gasp* don't like Starbucks, nor McDonalds, to drop by there and upload to 4Shared seems a little ridiculous.

Still I can show you what I scrap anyway, right?

I finally managed to finish the wedding album redo that I started way back when. The old 'magnetic' style album was turning really ugly and the pictures were falling out, so I scanned the pictures and redid it all digitally. I had it printed through Shutterfly in a neat little 8x8 book. I'm totally pleased with the result! I'll have to take some pictures for you some time.

In the meantime, here are a couple of LO's I did recently.

I think the colours in this new kit by Cathy Krenek 'Spring is in the Air' are perfect for these pictures dated from the fifties. The kit has such a vintage/heritage feel.

Naturally that is not my sister's real name, just a little nick name ;)

Another ongoing project for me is an anniversary album. Originally I was going to have it ready for our 25th....but at that came and gone....maybe I'll make it a 30th instead LOL. I like how this one turned out -

I used Stephanie Ogren's 'A Summer Place' and a few paper overlays by Kimberly Stewart. Click on the LO to go to the gallery for direct product links.

It is summer in California and really hot. I am so thankful for air conditioning. It would be awful without it. I don't tolerate heat well. I hope you are able to stay cool and get lots of scrapping done!
