Bucket Full Of Memories - Freebie Digi Kit

Here is a pre release of the designers collab kit for July at Hummies World, don't forget to visit Hummies at the end of the month to grab the other designers collab kit. The colour palette for July was picked with deep blue's and green's in mind for those lovely sea and beach images just waiting to be scrapped.



Once again I have three files for you to download and hopefully this month there will not be any problems for you to download them, but then who can tell when technology will go pear shaped, so if you do have any problems downloading please let me know and hopefully I will be able to sort it out for you.

Bucket Full Of Memories.

All papers and elements created at 300dpi and are suitable for printing and hybrid projects.


I have not had time yet to create a layout using this kit but I would love to see anything that you create with this kit weather it be a digi scrap page or a hybrid project. Hope you have fun creating....

Improving Your Blog

I recently had a interesting conversation with a blogging friend about how to create a successful blog as it seems to me there are some awesome blogs out there which appear to be extremely popular. I have been blogging now for a couple of years and its growth has been slow but steady and during this time have put alot of work into it. I think we all work hard on our blogs and it would be so rewarding to have readers who enjoy visiting our blogs, this was when my friend introduced me to 31 days to improve your blog. I have only just purchased this book but I am quite excited about what it has to offer and I think for those who really want to improve their blog too this could be a awesome tool to help. When I have finished reading this back to back I am hoping to do a review for you. To find out more about 31 days to a better blog you can view some reviews by clicking the link below.

Problem Download

I understand that some have had a problem with Elements download link for the Midsummers Dream freebie kit, so I have now split the file into two seperate downloads as I think the size of the original file was causing the problem. I have update the old post with the new links but here they are again if you need them.

Its been quite a busy month for me, so much to do and not enough hours in the day or even days in the week. I have been very much occupied with my new job at Hummies World editing their newsletter and designing the graphics. I am enjoying my new venture very much and the first few weeks have taken up much of my time and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat which I have missed. But the good news is now I am well setlled into the job and much quicker at preparing the newsletter I hope to have more time to spend on my blog, could those be 'last famous words' lol.

Easter is now over and I guess we are all looking forward to the big day on Friday, I hope you all enjoyed your Easter Break.

Springtime Freshness - Freebie

It is officially here glorious Spring and I have been enjoying those beautiful warm sunny days we had last week, but today is wet and dreary, I do hope it improves soon. Easter is also just around the corner and I am looking forward to the break, I am planning to get into the garden 'weather permitting' to get some photos to scrap. As I speak suddenly the sun is making an appearance yeah - I love it.

I have some more freebies for you this kit I made for Hummiesworld Designer Collab and is great for your digi scrap pages and hybrid projects too. My grandaughter printed some of the papers last week and made some treat pouches to give to her friends at school for Easter.





The kit can be downloaded at my other blog Wisteria Moments where you will find instructions also for making these gorgous treat pouches. They are so simple to make, you dont need glue or tape just simply fold and fill, I do love quick and simple. Hope you have fun making these, a great way to keep the children occupied and no messy stuff.

Scrapbooking Your Ancestors

You may know from my previous ramblings that I have become addicted to this new hobby researching my ancestors and being able to combine it with my other hobby is so much fun. Creating digital scrapbook pages can be time consuming but it is so much fun and very rewarding.





Should you also be interested in your ancestors, you may like to take a peep at my new blog, it is in the very early stages at the moment so content is a little sparse but I am trying to add to it regularly.

I hope you all had a great christmas and I know this is rather late but here is wishing everyone a happy new year. At least now spring is just around the corner and we have summer to look forward to. I have been lurking around now and again and there is so much wonderfull talent around both digital and hybrid, I have seen some wonderful projects over the christmas period. So now christmas is well and truly over we are all looking for a bargain or even better still some nice freebies to add to our craft stash. So have afew links for you to check out at Digi Design Resort a great place for all you digital scrappers but also very useful for downloaded papers and elements which you can print out and use for your card projects.
If you sign upto Digi Design Resorts newsletter you aoutomatically receive a free copy of this wonderfull kit



Well thats it for today, I need to get back into the swing of things so see you soon.



News On Upcoming Freebies

Hi All hope your having a great weekend and looking forward to Spring, I know I am and its just around the corner now, cant wait to get outdoors a bit more with my camera of course. More photos means more designs resulting in more freebies, that has got be good for you. Seriously I have some new freebies in the pipeline which I am really excited about as I have stepped up my designing skills and pretty pleased with the results I am churning out. In the past I have always offered my freebies to everyone, but on a recent subscription to a newsletter email site I now have the option for you to sign up to recieve a newsletter from me. Now I will say I am no expert at writing newsletters, but I think this is going to a fun project and my goal will be to bring to you what new trends are coming to the craft and digital scrap world, so because I want to offer a good quality newsletter my intentions will be to only send one a month, that will give me plenty of time for research and hopefully give you the readers some useful information.

To make this more interesting I want you to tell me what you would like to hear about or are most interested in and I will do my best to deliver to you exciting news on your favourite subject. So now I have finished rambling, the idea is that to get a download link to my freebies you will need to sign upto the newsletter, but no worries it is all free and no catch.

Dont miss out on the first newsletter my estimated date being the weekend of the 12th of March, opt in box is just to right in the sidebar.
