Summer Summer Summer – I Love It

Summer makes me a totally different person. I feel better both physically and mentally, and the sun and higher temperatures are a gift from above. And most important: I can spend time in my garden!

I love my garden. As I mentioned last year it is my therapy and makes me forget everything else. It doesn’t matter if I have to work hard or just sit back with a book, although the hard work is still taking over most of my time. I hope that next summer the garden will be according to my plans for it. But until then I just embrace it every day.

Enough “happy talk”, I just wanted all of you to know that I’m feeling good at the moment. And that allows me to take a short break from garden work to deliver you some freebies and make up for lost time. Can you believe it’s been more than 2 months?

To get the most of my up-time I decided to bring you a LOAD of freebies in one posting. The theme is “Colours of Summer” but they should be versatile enough to use all year.

01 – Coloured Wooden Frames Bundle (CU)

First up is a 5-pack bundle of coloured wooden page frames.Each frame is 12×12 inches, 300 dpi, PNGs

Gray Tones Time – Outside and In

What do we do when the outside is in gray tones?

Hmm – why not see the beauty in the gray tones…

I have created a Mini Kit for you today called “DUNE”. It celebrated the beauty in the outside gray. If it’s a bit too depressing for your just add a splash of your favorite colour 😉

The Mini Kit includes 6 papers, 9 elements and a Caps Alpha with numbers and symbols.

On a personal note:

The outside is not the only thing in gray tones – so is my brain!

At this time of year my MS is acting up more than usual and that means my brain is a bit like slush. It takes an enormous amount of energy to just make a post lake this, and designing is even harder. I do, however, not give up as designing is my therapy. I will continue to make freebies for you. I just ask you to get used to not getting them as frequent as you used to. I will post as often as possible and wait for the gray tones to turn into spring and summer.

Lots of Love

Valentine’s Day delayed due to Spring Arrival

It was my intention to come back from my New Year Vacation for Valentine’s Day, but hen Spring arrived. I have added a few pictures to prove it:

Svaneke Harbour

From a walk in my town

Snow drops in my garden

Erantis in my garden

I hope you can understand that a weather like that is not for inside computer work. I went out to drink the sunshine up and load up on vitamin D and it did me good.

But nothing lasts forever and right now the snow is coming down like in a Disney movie and I’m drinking tea and eating the rest of the Christmas cookies 🙂 AND I’m back behind my computer screen to catch up….

…So better late than never – let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day.

I have made you two freebies of Valentine’s Hearts – one with enamel hearts and one with Patterns, overlays and papers. Although I’m not a bog fan of pink, I decided that you can’t have Valentine’s Day without it – so you get pink.

Valentine’s Hearts – Enamel Hearts

24 gold enamel hearts.

I hope you can use these freebies before next Valentine’s Day.

See you soon.

On a Personal Note

I hope your New Years Eve was better than mine….. Not that we didn’t get the good food, the champagne and the good time, but some things were not as they use to be.

First of all, the TV-suppliers had a major break down so no TV to all of Denmark. This break down happened about 15 minutes before the biggest Danish New Year tradition – The Queen’s Speech. Luckily, we found a transmission on line, but it wasn’t the same gathering around a computer. The lack of TV also made the night different as we are among those who usually watch some of the traditional New Year shows, but we managed by drinking some extra champagne.

Then just before midnight it was back to the computer to find a transmission of the Town House clock – the only way we would now when the year actually changed. Found it but still not the same as a big screen TV.

After midnight we found out another big difference between living in the country’s capital and in a very small town – The Fireworks. In Copenhagen we were used to a ear deafening feast lasting several hours. Last night we given a nice looking firework display lasting less than 30 min. But that’s OK – the early silence was nice for once.

But, unfortunately, the silence didn’t last. Around 2 am we heard some very loud bangs outside that were NOT fireworks. After checking around we found out that some – probably drunk – idiots had pushed down our marble lion down the front stone steps to make it land all shattered. And to make there “fun” even better they had pulled up our fairy light tree and thrown it on the ground and moved our drying rack one street down. What the H… makes that kind of behaviour necessary? Vandalism never made any sense to me…

But now it’s the day after and the incident is reported to the police (who will probably do nothing but make a note of it) and we have started a new year. Hope the start does not make an example for how it’s going to be.

Now for something more positive…

I found a Christmas Freebie I had forgotten to post!!! So with a belated Merry Christmas you get it here:

Extra Christmas Elements

It’s a big pack of mixed elements made with one of the colour palettes I used for other Christmas freebies and made from some of the posted papers – I hope you will find use for them

That was all from me on this first day of a new year.

All the best to you and yours

Christmas 9 – Christmas 2016 Bundle & Hygge

It’s the day for the big Christmas 2016 Bundle. But before we get to the big download task I want to share a link with you.

The other day I mentioned the Danish concept “Hygge” and yesterday I found out it has become internationally acknowledged. When The New Yorker writes about it, it’s a trend, right? Read the article, shared by the American Ambassador to Denmark, and become familiar with – and maybe inspired by – Danish Hygge!

Christmas 7 – Enamel and Old Metal Stars

I promised you yesterday that you would be seeing stars today. And, oh my, will you see stars! No less than 168 of them..

I love a cold, clear December night where every single star is visible in the sky – it practically screams Christmas. So why not transfer that feeling to your scrapping?

I have made you 2 bundles of enamel stars – 1 gold/1 silver – plus a little Bonus Pack.

The Gold and Silver Packs each contains 72 enamel stars – 6 designs in 6 colours. All full size PNGs for CU4CU.

We are now getting frightfully close to the big day(s) and it’s almost last chance to be Christmas creative. So tomorrow I will bring you a DIY freebie. Well, you don’t have to make the freebie yourself, but what’s in it is for you to make something of your own designs. Enough said – you have to return tomorrow to find out what it is.

Kiss your closed ones…

Christmas 6 – Bits & Pieces

Today I have collected some Bits & Pieces for you. It’s all elements of the kind you can drop here and there in your layouts or use individually on cards, tags etc.

The first pack is a collection of mixed Enamel Bits & Pieces. I have tried to print them out myself on thick paper and glued them together with a string to hang on the tree or on branches – it worked quite well.

You get 13 different elements all full size PNGs.
