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 ūüėČ

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 ūüôā 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.

Happy New Year and Extra Christmas

To mark the change I have dug up a freebie I made long ago but waited for this special day to post. The name of the template I used is Happy New Year and makes today The Day for giving it to you.

It is a bundle of 5 Paper Packs each containing 30/20 stamped ornamental papers.

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.

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.

Christmas 5 – Christmas Cookie Mix

What is more Christmas than a home baked Cookie?

I have baked you a big batch for today’s freebie, but I can NOT recommend you eating them! They will, however, be great for all your Christmas layouts. Or for printing and hanging on your tree.

The batch contains 38 cookies – some decorated, some not. They are all separate full size PNGs. I have included a Bonus of 3 Cookie Frames and a Cookie Page Frame. I have also included the preview image in case you can use it for something.

I know you are busy this time of year, but as mentioned in an earlier post I would REALLY like to hear how you spend your Christmas. All you have to do is write me a short comment, and when we get closer to Christmas, I will make a post with quotes from your comments. So PLEASE take a minute or two to make me happy.

I’ll be back again tomorrow – see you then.

Christmas 4 – Back to Nature

Today I’m going back to nature.

I have taken some of the nature items connected with Christmas and made you 3 Freebies –¬† an Alpha, some Papers and a pack of Elements. I think that my new location has taken a bit of the Big City Girl out of me and replaced her with a bit of Nature Girl. But at this time of year it doesn’t bother me.

My Christmas preparations are going fine. But now I have to be honest… There aren’t a lot of them. We don’t give presents, so no shopping or wrapping. We don’t have room for a Christmas tree yet, so no tree decorating. We get the Christmas dinner from the local restaurant, so no cooking. All I have done so far is put up some fairy lights, spread around some candles and a few decorations. This may sound sad to you but you know what: I’m fine with it. It takes the hassle out of the Holidays and gives us more time for what Christmas should be about – being together and having a nice time. And for the Danish concept “Hygge” (badly translated into cozy). It’s kind of a Zen Christmas. If you ever get the chance, you should try it!

But enough of me – let’s get to the Freebies.

Bark Alpha

A full alpha in bark texture. You get A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and a few symbols. They are, of course, in separate PNGs, and you are welcome to use them for CU4CU.

Animal Mix

These darlings have been sitting in my “Sand Box” for a while, but I thinks it’s time to let them out. You get 10 elements – 2 deer, 2 geese, 2 piggies, 2 doves and 2 winter trees. I thought you could use them for something pretty. Cards, tags or something other to your liking. They are all¬† full size PNGs.
