Hello Everyone! Well, December is here...already! Can you believe it? I am having a hard time getting into the holiday spirit this year. By now, I usually have the tree up, lights twinkling outside and all of the other decorations that take hours to put up in just the right spot. I have a Christmas tree in the middle of the kitchen/office/living room. No lights, no decorations, no tinsel. I am not depressed or sad or anything like that...I'm just so darn busy at work. Lately, I live there (at least I feel like I do). Since my posts have now decreased to once per month (and usually late for the train), I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Safe New Year!!
Here I am. Late again. I have a good excuse though....I've been going to the gym and working out. My time is becoming more limited and the kits get smaller but I'm not ready to stop designing altogether. I haven't had as much practice as I need and I'm definitely not up to date on what is and is not liked in a scrapbook kit these days. If anyone would like to leave any suggestions on what you prefer to see in a kit, please leave a comment. I want to create stuff that will be used. Enjoy.
Sorry I'm late!! Typical everyday life stuff....it never ends when you have teenagers. Anyway, you would think with boys this kit would have inspired me a little more but I just couldn't get into it this time. I managed to create a couple of templates from vectors I purchased and made a flashlight and binoculars...hehehe. I was a little excited when I finished the templates. They are tucked away on my external HD as well as my virtual HD. I am determined NOT to lose everything I manage to create for my stash. It's happened too many times, I've actually lost count. It's heartbreaking. So here is my part to contribute to the blog train this month.
Wow! Time is really flying. I blinked and June was over. I found this palette and theme a little tough for me this month. I had a hard time getting started. I kept checking to see what others were coming up with for some inspiration but nothing really popped. What I ended up with is coming from memories when I was a kid. Being happy and bubbly, being outside with friends, gulping lemonade or other cool beverage (usually Kool aid) and just being kids. We loved going to the corner store with a pocketful of pennies and getting a bag of penny candy. Enjoy!
Better late than never! I almost gave up trying. I had computer problems, then my programs wouldn't work. I had to use an old computer that doesn't have enough memory to run my programs...it's been a rough month. I'm just getting myself organized again. I hope you can use something from this kit. When I was doing my family tree a few years ago, most of my ancestors (well all of them actually) came from Italy. What I wanted to create was more like the old world maps, ships, scroll papers...stuff like that. Most of the documents I found were old, crinkled up papers or torn postcards with smeared ink blots. I was running so short on time so I figured I would create my kit more on my ancestors "travel" to this country. It's not much but mixed with other parts of the train, there is huge potential to make some great pages. Happy Scrappin'!
Hey All! I'm late :o) posting my part of the Pixel Scrapper Blog train...but at least I made it to the party!
I have been having computer issues lately and waiting on my son to fix it or tell me to get a new one (I prefer he fix it of course). To top that off, my design program just stopped loading so I downloaded another version of the same program but it is only a trial version so I do not have my plug-ins and all that jazz. My portion of the train is a bit bland (no bells and whistles) because I do not have access to use my Alien Skin plug-ins...I didn't realize how much I actually used them until I didn't have them anymore :o( Anyway, I figure you may be able to combine the candles or party hat or even the balloons with another designers contribution. It's not much but it's something. Happy Scrappin!
Welcome to April! I am rushing to get this posted before I run out the door for work so I hope I don't forget anything. I started working on this kit in late February....and I'm just getting it done. Procrastination. That pretty much sums it up. Seriously though, I think getting the preview done is my least favorite part of designing. Sometimes it falls together, other times (like now) things just seem to be scattered all over the place. I really love how the papers came together for this kit. I hope you enjoy!
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.
