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 8 – Plaid Patchwork DIY

Now it’s time for you to work on the Plaid Patchwork….

As mentioned yesterday, today’s freebie requires a little work from you. It’s a Plaid Patchwork DIY Pack with a bunch of stitched plaid squares for you to “sew together” as you find best.

You get squares in 3 sizes (1 inch, 2 inches and 3 inches), 4 different plaids and with stitching in red, green and white, adding up to 36 squares in all.

So now it’s up to you to make backgrounds, frames, shapes or whatever you can think of.

But…. I have also included 4 ready made examples for you just in case you are too busy so close to Christmas.

Now that we are almost there I will be posting my big Christmas 2016 Bundle tomorrow. Haven’t you posted enough already? No! I’m unstoppable when it comes to Christmas so be sure to have the coffee/hot chocolate ready for tomorrow cause there will be more than 200 MB to download.

And I also have a small freebie for you on Christmas Eve – but after that I’ll be taking a few days off.

Have a Christmas cookie or two!

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.

I personally think these are very pretty and versatile. Use them for anything you fancy and if your are proud of your own work, share it with me please.

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.

The second pack is full of smaller icon Bits & Pieces with Christmas illustrations in 4 different styles. 32 in all: 8 Cut Outs, 8 Felt, 8 Stickers and 8 Sparkly.They are around 1½ inch, separate PNGs.

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.

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

Good News!

After yet another long break from posting I’m back with good news.

First of all we got our stuff out of storage, so now we only have 500 moving boxes to unpack…. We have our clothes, our furniture and everything else we have been missing for almost a year

Secondly, I have been granted early retirement so I am now “free”. No more municipal demands, no more meetings with caseworkers. I am back to being in control of my own life 🙂

On Monday I celebrated my Birthday (gosh 49!) and my mother came all the way to our little island to join in – Love her!

And soon it will be Christmas 🙂 We have been told there is a chance for a white one this year.

How about that for all good news?

And I have even more of it: Because of my absence I have 3 new freebies for you today.

The first one has been waiting in the archives for a long time, but now it’s finally the right time to share. A Moving Box Alpha to celebrate the return of our belongings.

The second one is a lovely pack of 30 grungy papers in winter tones.

And Finally, a pack of 18 enamel corners in green tones.

For my Members: I am in the process of uploading new stuff to the Members Area, so stay patient, please.

I really hope that your lives are just a little bit as good as mine is at the moment. I will return real soon with a little Christmas Goodies.

Enjoy your December with everything it stands for.

Lots of Love

Rainy Day

We are having a rainy day… A VERY rainy day!

My newly sowed lawn in raining away and what the water is not taking the birds are 🙁 But never mind. It’s a rainy day and that is a great opportunity to stay inside and do nothing but drinking coffee and watching bad TV – it is, however, Sunday 🙂

I have taken a break from the bad TV to post a little something for you should you ever have a rainy Sunday.

First is a little reminder of how great the outdoors can look on a sunny day. I have made a pack of colourful flowers to pretty up any layout.

But now for the important part….

What to do with the kiddies on a rainy day. They need something to do all day and what could be better than LEGO? Even the adults find LEGO interesting. So I have made you a LEGO Alpha to play around with. I have even included a background.

I hope this will keep you entertained. Me? I’ll go out in my garden an play scarecrow chasing the birds away from my (hopefully) soon-to-be lawn.

Have a great Sunday.

Lots of Love

Autumn – Time for Cosy

As autumn is knocking, it’s time for Cosy….

After a late 5-day heatwave I still enjoy summer-ish days here on the island. I have FINALLY finished with the weed removal and is ready to sow the lawn. It should still be possible to make it grow before it gets too cold. If I succeed you will get a picture 🙂

But you can, however, never be too prepared for autumn. That is why, today, I present you with nothing less than 5 free paper packs with distressed plaid. To me plaid spells autumn/winter and is all time cosy.

Aren’t they amazing? Heat up the chocolate and ring out the mini-marshmellows. It’s time to cosy up 🙂

If anyone is wondering…. We still don’t have our furniture, we still have lack of finances and we still “live in the basement”. I hope our luck will soon change so we can have a normal life – a cosy life.

See you soon.

Lots of Love
