Free Winter Snowflakes Scrapbook Paper

This free personal use and scrap for hire (PU/s4h) winter snowflake scrapbook paper is perfect for Christmas, Hanukkah or just plain old winter scrapbooks, handmade cards and crafts. For me the design is wishful thinking, because I live in a place where it never snows: South Florida. So the only snow I ever see is on my computer screen or TV. We hope to change that soon by moving to Georgia (the one in the U.S., not Europe). The real estate market can't stink forever, right?

I love the little hint of purple within the blue of this scrapbook paper design. I'm happy whenever I can sneak purple into any of my designs, especially if it's soft purple. With any luck you'll find uses for this snowflake scrapbook paper design as the winter months wear on.

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I wish you a happy holiday. For everyone else, happy scrapping and crafting!

Please remember to honor the terms of use for this scrapbook paper. It can be used for personal projects or scrap for hire only. Also, please don't post this image or anything you make with it without providing a link to this site. Thanks!

Free Thanksgiving Scrapbook Quickpage

This free personal use and scrap for hire (PU/s4h) Thanksgiving scrapbook quickpage contains elements from my commercial use Home Is Where the Heart Is kit. It also uses a colorized version on one of the word art elements from my Thanksgiving add-on to that kit. Both kits have had a price reduction!

Free Fall Leaves Scrapbook Paper

This free personal use (PU) fall scrapbook paper uses the leaf and string swirl element from my commercial use Thanksgiving add-on to the Home Is Where the Heart Is kit, which went on sale today.

I'm a sucker for purple and orange together with other fall hues, so I really like this design. I hope you like it, too, and that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And if you're from a country that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving in November, I hope you'll find this fall paper useful for other things.

FYI, I have a quickpage from the same kit, which I'll be posting soon.

Free Fall Apples and Word Art Scrapbook Elements

I call this free mini CU/S4H/PU fall scrapbook kit How Do You Like Them Apples? for obvious reasons. The red and green apple images have a grungy look that matches my fall leaves and scrapbook papers, so these make a great addition for those who have bought or plan to buy those fall kits. There are also three matching word art elements.

It's unusual for me to offer free CU images, but I wanted people to be able to use the with my CU fall kits. Please do read and honor the terms of use in the kit, though, because "CU" doesn't mean "free reign."

The name of this scrapbook kit reminds me of one of the funniest lines in Good Will Hunting. For those who haven't seen the movie (and I highly recommend it), the interchange goes something like this: Matt Damon's character is in a Harvard-area bar, trying to pick up Minnie Driver's character. While there he gets into a fight with several snobby Harvard students who don't think he's good enough. Naturally, though, he gets Driver's phone number, because he's so charming. After leaving the bar, he spots the snobs sitting at a table by the window in a coffee shop. 

He yells through the window at the main snob, "Hey, do you like apples?" 

The snob looks confused but says, "Yeah, why?"

Damon slams the piece of paper with Driver's phone number against the window and says, "Because I got her number. How do you like them apples?"

I don't know if that's funny in print, but it makes me laugh every time I see the movie.

Anyway, I hope you do like these apples and the three fall word art elements that accompany them. Here's a link to buy the CU kits that match them (click the image):
