Fall Magic Scrapbook Mini Kit Freebie

This free digital scrapbooking kit is called Fall Magic. It contains seven freebie PU/S4H scrapbooking paper designs in fall colors, patterns and textures; two clusters with cheerful autumn flowers and leaves; and one quickpage.

It's not even close to fall-like weather here in South Florida; we have two months to go before we can even wear long sleeves. But since most other people in the U.S. and elsewhere are getting ready for the changing seasons, I thought this mini-kit would be useful. I'm planning to do a full kit with autumn images and some fun magical elements, but I was just itching to get at least some of what I've created into circulation now. Please take my RSS feed or follow me on Twitter or Facebook so you'll know when it's time to get the full kit.

Digital Scrapbook Freebie Kit: Country Afternoon

This free digital scrapbooking kit is called Country Afternoon, and it's for those who love the peaceful country life. It features a trellis covered with flowers, surrounded by a weathered garden gate and an old well. A chicken grazes quietly by the well, presumably enjoying all the colorful flowers in bloom.

There are 10 country-inspired PNG elements  in this kit, including a chicken, an egg, a well, a fence fronted by flowers, grass, a weathervane, a trellis covered in flowers, and three flower images. There is also a quick page that shows the trellis, fence and well combined. The eight matching papers come in soft shades of purple, blue, cream and mauve, in watercolor, distressed and stripe designs.

The elements for this kit came from Helga of GrannyArt.Blogspot.com and the papers are altered versions of designs used by permission from Cindy of Statchoo Scraps, Kelcey of LunaRosa Scraps and Silke of Papierstudio Scrap Designs. Thanks to all of them for their creativity!

I hope you enjoy this PU/S4H digital kit, which can be used both for your personal scrapbooks or to make scrapbooks for clients. Please remember to read the Terms of Use included in the kit before you use it though.

Swirls Freebie Digital Scrapbook Kit

Scroll down to download
This personal use freebie digital scrapbooking kit is called Swirls, for obvious reasons. It will always be special to me, because it's the first kit I've ever designed! I hope you like it and find it useful.

The kit contains a quick page, two background papers and two transparent clusters, suitable to be used as frames. Its soft color palette of purple, ivory and teal would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary scrapbook, or to document any elegant occasion. This design is what my mother would have called "fancy schmancy." Since the 20th anniversary of her death is coming up in a few weeks, she's been on my mind. I'm sure she would have approved of this very feminine design.

Many thanks to Lesley of Scrappiness Downunder, Kelcey of LunaRosa Scraps and Cindy of Statchoo Designs for the elements and papers used in this digital kit.

Free Wedding Mini Frame Scrapbook Embellishment

Click on the free floral wedding cluster frame to see it full size and download it. (To save it, right-click on the full-sized image if you have a PC and control-click if you have a Mac.)
This freebie floral frame cluster embellishment is perfect for small photos for a wedding or commitment ceremony, or for any time you want an elegant look. I'm always amazed at people who release whole kits or quick pages with complex images like this, because this one took me forever to make! I can't imagine making a kit, but I suppose I will some day. Maybe I'll get faster as I become more experienced.

At any rate, I just love the look of this triple frame. It features roses and other flowers and scrollwork embellishments from Lesley of Scrappiness Downunder, a ribbon from Jamie of Jamie Dell Scraps and a frame from Karen of Kaklei Designs, although it's been greatly modified from its original form. My thanks to all for use of the images.

Free Grandparents Day Scrapbook Paper

Click on the free Grandparents Day scrapbook paper to see it full size.

free Grandparents Day scrapbook paperHere's something you don't see every day: Grandparents Day scrapbook paper. Grandparents Day is on the first Sunday after Labor Day (Sunday, September 12 in 2010 and September 11, 2011), so I thought this paper would come in handy right about now, because you don't have to just use it for scrapbooking; it also makes great wrapping paper for small Grandparents Day gifts.

I envy those of you who still have your grandparents around to honor on Grandparents Day. My paternal grandfather died before I was born and his wife passed on when I was very young. My maternal grandparents lived until I was in my later teens but that was a very long time ago! I still remember the way my maternal grandfather sang to me when I was a little girl. He also paid for my education, because my father died when I was a young teenager and there wasn't a lot of money in the household. I owe my being able to create scrapbook paper to him, because he paid for a special technical training program that taught me graphic design. So, all these years later, I'd like to say a public "thanks" to my Grandpa Fred for his love and support.

I have a hub with more Grandparents Day scrapbook papers, along with some clip art that can also be used as Grandparents Day cards. Feel free to hop on over and do some downloading. Also, check out all the other images in the sidebar and follow me on Twitter for more scrapbooking freebies.

This free pearl and diamond scrapbook cluster element is for all you divas out there! It happens to have my birthstone in it, so that makes me like it all the more.

Free Garden Frame Scrapbook Element

Click on the free digital garden scrapbook frame to see and download the full-size image.

This free scrapbooking frame has a relaxing home and garden theme, so I call it "Home Sweet Home." The wood look frame scrapbook element is a transparent PNG file that features a delicate and ornate white bird cage, two flowerpots with colorful blooms and a wicker basket full of brilliant orange and yellow flowers.

The lovely flower images come from Lesley Mason of Scrappiness Downunder. The bird cage is also from her blog but is from a scrapbooking kit by someone named Linda (Sorry, Linda, I don't know your last name.)
