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

Happy New Year and Extra Christmas

Now the calendar says 2017, I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

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.

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 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.

Deer Paper Bundle

This bundle contains 3 paper packs with deer patterns. One has “fluffy deer”, one has “gold deer” and the last one has “sparkly deer”. All in brown deer colours. You get 3 x 6 papers all in 12×12 JPGs.

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.

I must go back to my busy Christmas Schedule 😉 See you tomorrow.

Christmas 3 – Snow and Ice

As snow and Ice is lacking for this Christmas I have made you some freebies to make up for it.

I’m actually a little shocked. I just realised that I only have 8 days left for posting all my Christmas freebies! AND I also have to prepare for the physical Christmas… Thank God we have dropped Christmas gift and get the Christmas dinner delivered 🙂  . So to avoid stress I will be posting new freebies every day until Christmas Eve, and I think I can squeeze in the new Member’s stuff too. See – No stress at all!!!!

How about you? Are you stressed out by Christmas or do you stay in the spirit of calm and joy? I know Christmas is celebrated differently around the world, and maybe you belong to a group that does not celebrate Christmas at all. If you have the time, I would love to have you write me a short comment on your Christmas traditions – there may even be a prize in it for you. Just start your comment to this post with “My Christmas” and I will repost them in a later post.

But first the Snow and Ice freebies:

Frosted Alpha

A full alpha made in an icy/frosted style.

Snowflakes

Snow Labels

Finally, a pack of labels framed with snow. You get 9 labels in different sizes and colours (matching yesterday’s papers).

That’s it for today – See you tomorrow?

Christmas 2 – Bling Papers

I’ve never been a huge fan of Bling. Glitter, gold and sparkly stuff. But for some reason, this year my Christmas feel includes a lot of it… Maybe I’m getting old – or maybe all the wild nature surrounding me now makes me look for something more “pretty”? I don’t know. But I do know that a lot of my Chistmas Freebies will include Bling (the pretty kind 😉 ).

Today’s gift to you is a Paper Pack of Gold Ornamental Papers.I have tried to stay away from the usual red, green and yellow Christmas colours and instead pulled out a pallet of mute lovely Christmassy colours – Hope you like them. This colour choice also make the papers more usable year round.

The PP contains 10 papers 12×12, JPG, and may be used for CU4CU.

Gold Ornament Papers previewDOWNLOAD:  Mediafire     –     Dropbox

By the way…. Our promised white Christmas has been cancelled 🙁 We are actually having early fall temperatures at the moment. Strange feeling. But well, there are still 10 days for the wind to change!

To help the snow on the way I bill be back in a few days with some snowy/icy freebies for your Christmas Collection – no Bling there.

Enjoy this fab month and come back soon.

Lots of Love to you and yours
