It's Tuesday--and here's a Template!

A new template, sort of a holiday greeting card, if you wish... Click here for the .png's, or on the image below for the .psd (shadowless) & .tif (shadowed) file.


Made everything with Home & Hearth (did you know there's a freebie add-on you can get at the MScraps FaceBook page?):

Hope you can enjoy it!

Oh--and 50% @ MScraps today for Tickle Your Tuesday, my AlphaTemplates!

Happy Tuesday!

Newness & Goodies: Part II

So yes! Anita van Straeten (Designs by Anita) and I have made a collab together, and it's come together *beautifully*! It's called Heartbound, and it's all about friendship--of any kind. In warm, soft tones, it works wonderfully for both boys and girls, men and women, and everybody in between...

Here's what it looks like:


and papers:

And ohhhhhhhh man, the layouts, the layouts... just amazing! My CT, Anita's CT, the store CT--so many layouts it's just not possible to show even half of them!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND... we have a giveaway winner, and it is:

TRISTA! Congratulations! Please contact me with your e-mail addy so I can mail you the coupon code... I really enjoyed reading what each of you had to say about friendship! I'm going for the fridge one at the moment... ;)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, everybody!

Newness and Goodies on Thanksgiving!

Hi everybody! What a great day it is here--wild, wet, seagulls hunkering down in the grass facing south, waves crashing and blowing in the wind--just the perfect winter storm day. Plus, we have power still! *lol*

And at MScraps, much newness! I have a couple of sets (by request) of very basic shape templates. Clippers 1 is full (30 items!) of curves and swirls that you can use to clip papers for your backgrounds. Clippers 2 is a set of border templates that you can use with styles or papers to make your own. Ricrac? Butterflies? Scallops? All yours with a little embellishment! Here's what they look like:

So head on over for Clippers 1 & 2 -- they're going to be useful over and over and over again! And of course they're on sale for the weekend!

What's that you say? What about the giveaway? Ohhh... that's the next post... ;)

2 Free Fonts: Home & Hearth

So, to make the alpha included in the Home & Hearth kit, I had to make a font, and then a display font (3 days of work!!). And here they are! The display font is better for titles or alphas; the plain font is a very legible print font, especially if you're using a program that has kerning enabled. Just click on the images to download the font folders!

These fonts are free for personal and commercial use (I do like to see what you do with them, though, and they may not be resold as is, nor included in any compilation without the accompanying TOU). The fonts I make are my way of repaying the design community for freebies that I've found online too. Thanks for sharing, you guys!

I'll be submitting these to dafont.com too, where you can find my other free fonts. Let me know if you like them!

Whether it's just you and your cat, or you and your 9 children, Home & Hearth has something for you! (It's 20% off through Sunday, as usual.)

And *of course* I have some fabulous layouts to show you:

Hope you guys have a wonderful, warm, loving weekend!

Template Tuesdays 14 (Freebie Template)

Hey, lookit that--I haven't gone to bed yet, so it must still be Tuesday. =)

I based this week's template on a layout I made tonight with my Just Because kit (coming soon to a MScraps near you!). It's got so many layers I made a separate file for just the .pngs: download that one here. For the regular .psd (no shadows) and .tiff (shadows) files, click on the preview beneath to download the templates:

And here's the layout I made:

Have a great Wednesday everybody!
