Friday Freebie Autumn is in the air

Can you believe it's nearly September? Where has the summer gone? Well, here in Scotland it never really arrived this year, but now Autumn is definitely in the air....
It's my favourite season, so I thought I would design some bits and pieces you can use in your Autumn/Fall projects over the next few weeks. This week three altered postcards.

Like always thanks are due to all the kind people that provide freebies for us to use: The Graphics Fairy, Bumble Button, Magic by Moonlight and others.

Artistic Stamper give away second chance!!

Hello everyone
Some of you may remember that there is a big celebration going on over at the Artistic Stamper. On two accounts, Jennie the boss has just opened a brick and mortar shop in Kent, but the give aways going on are in connection with the second anniversary of the creative team blog. Each of the DT member are giving away a set of stamps randomly chosen from comments left either on the DT Blog or on their own blogs. Winners will be announced on September 7, so as a reminder, these are the stamps I am giving away:
Now for my second project:

I decided to make a notebook to write down my creative ideas before I forget them again. Full instruction are on the DT blog. Here are a few more close ups

This is the back.
All stamps used are from the Artistic Stamper.

So, just to recap, to be in with a chance to win both of these sets, leave a comment here, to have two chances head over to the DT Blog and leave a comment there too and for those many lovely people that left me comments last time already, you'll be in with 4 chances!

Friday Freebie

Hello everyone and first of all, welcome to all my new followers again! I really appreciate all the comments you leave me!
Here is this week's little freebie offering, An envelope with 4 note cards. In the age of email it's more and more rare we actually write a letter but a bunch of note cards always comes in handy I think. I have left plenty of space to do your own inking and/or stamping.
Full collage sheet. For the envelope just score and fold along the scoreline and glue together

 Here are all the bits as individual png if you want to print them individually or re-size.

Here you can see a sample of the envelope and note card printed and made up, I printed it out on vanila card stock and then mounted one of the note cards onto some craft paper and added some inking and a tiny bit of stamping.

Dare I show it?

Hmmmm, rather a silly title for a post, because obviously if I didn't dare I wouldn't be posting now would I? The thing is I have started on my Christmas projects (ouch, - it is only August....) but the other thing is, I have a little time now still and there is so much coming up, so here goes: A couple of cards and the start of yet another commissioned mini book....  The papers I am using are Graphics 45 Christmas Emporium and Bo Bunny Noel

Friday Freebie

Hi everyone
Freebies will be back on a Friday again, though possibly not every week depending on how busy I am with other things. This week however, there is one and here it is. An other collection sheet with a vaguely Parisien theme. Enjoy and welcome to all my new followers, you are all much appreciated!!
Full jpeg sheet to print on thin card, cut and use as you please.
 Below are individual pngs if you want to resize, play with digitally, or use as is of course. In most cases I have put imagery slightly off centre to leave space for you to add things. I will put one sample of this right at the bottom.
4 x 4"


The little child on this one came from the wonderful Terri Kahrs of Pringle Hill Studios The little bird was an other freebie found a long time ago, don't think it was the Graphics Fairy this time, but not absolutely sure anymore I'm afraid.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
