Hello! Long time, no post :o) It's been a crazy, insanely busy summer. We were on vacation for the first couple of weeks in July then spent the next month trying to catch up at work. I managed to muster up a little something for the blog train this month which I hope will meet expectations. I don't feel that I have quite the right balance of elements to go with the theme but it was the best I could do with little time to design. Here is my part of the Bohemian Breeze blog train.
Here was my take on "England". All I could think of was tea! I really wanted to do something different aside from the deep red and blue. My mind kept thinking of gardens, big hats, tea pots, tea cups, fields of poppies and mason jars! I don't have any clue where the idea of mason jars came from but once I started....I couldn't stop. I hope you can use something from this mix of random elements :o) Enjoy!!
I have ditched 4Shared so I hope this isn't too much trouble for you.
OMG! I am so not ready for this month. I was plugging along thinking I had plenty of time to get this kit done and before I knew it...May is here. If you have followed my blog at all in the past year or so I know I have mentioned many times that pastel colors and I do not get along. I just can't wrap my brain around the colors. I prefer the bold, dark colors...that seems to suit my "design" eye a little better. Anyway, I gave it a shot as I do every month just to keep the "mojo" going. I won't keep you waiting....here is "Renewal".
This months theme was kinda left open to interpretation; how do you define "Reflections"? Looking at all of the great contributions to this train, I see several different interpretations. My contribution was centered around reflecting on memories or even creating new memories. Don't forget to stop by Pixel Scrapper and check out all of the contributions. Enjoy!
The downloads include additional word art not included in the preview. Here are a couple journal cards I managed to put together. I will try to get a few more done but can't promise as there just aren't enough hours in the day :o)
To download, just click on the image and "save as" to your computer.
This one was difficult for me. I couldn't think of what types of elements to make and what started out to be tags ended up being more like flowers so you get a bunch of flowers with this kit. I just couldn't get "valentine" out of my head so you get the hearts too :o) Don't forget to stop by Pixel Scrapper to see the other great pieces of the train.
I have to confess...I almost didn't get this done. I had a few of the elements done but wasn't feeling inspired so I walked away from my computer for what seemed like weeks. I only started tinkering with it again a few days ago. I created a few papers and a few more elements and the long lost "inspiration fairy" struck and I just kept going. Good thing I've been on vacation this past week or this space may still be blank, eek :-) I tried to make a nutcracker by hand and he looked even more creepy than he already is so I replaced him with the owl. The alpha was created based on an old card I found with pieces of cardboard with glitter and old music sheets glued to the cardboard. I thought it was cute. Mine, of course isn't as cute as the one I had seen but it'll do. I hope you all enjoy my version of the Nutcracker.
You will find the download link below each image below or if you just want the whole kit including the alpha and journal cards; please use the All In One link at the very end of this post.
Don't forget to visit Pixel Scrapper to gather the other designers creations. Happy Scrappin'.
October just zoomed right by! This is a small kit (for me), I'm so used to having more elements to cram into the preview. I threw this together so I hope you're able to use something from it. Don't forget to check out the other great finds for this train at Pixel Scrapper.
I just wanted to post a quick note regarding some of my freebies here on my blog. When I post QP's or Bragbook pages, I generally leave them up indefinately. Sometimes links become broken and need repaired. I don't generally test them to make sure they are still active so if there is a freebie here on my blog that you are unable to retrieve...please use the link above under "Where to find me" and shoot me an email and let me know which link is broken. If you leave your contact info such as an email, I will gladly notify you when the link is fixed.
If you are in need of a kit that you've seen here on my blog, please use the "Where to find me" link on the sidebar, send me an email with the name of the kit and we'll go from there. Keep in mind, they are no longer free once the links are removed so expired freebie requests will not be granted.
