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

Welcome to Green Week

…and Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

With St. Paddy’s Day and coming og spring in one and the same week I want to make this Green Week.

I’ll start with a nice little “Irish Collection” with material to be used for today’s layouts but also for so much more non-Paddy-related.

The Irish Collection – St. Paddy’s Day Kit

Preview - Irish Collection 600This Kit contains:

  • Part 1  – 11 mixed papers & 10 enamel gold elements
  • Part 2 – 12 Shamrocks corner papers, 6 green/6 white
  • Part 3 – 8 Shamrock patterns + papers and overlays
  • Part 4 – 1 alpha with enamel monogram caps + green and gold lower letters and numbers

All material is full size, 300 dpi, and you may use it for Commercial Use according to my TOU.

Waiting for Spring

Spring is just around the corner…

As the sun is beginning to regain its power and the days are getting longer, I am sitting here waiting for springtime. A season to give me back my energy and kill all the germs constantly attacking my non-existing immune system.

So to mark the end of winter I bring you an Add-On to the kit “Cosy Winter”

I noticed – too late – that I had forgotten to include the credits for this add-on, so you’ll get them here:

For the Cosy Winter Add-On I have used material and actions from the following designers:

Thanks to all of you!

CWAO – Alphas

This is an alpha consisting of monogram caps and numbers in silver with 5 enamel colours. They are split up into two downloads – one with the letters and one with the numbers.

As an extra little bonus I also give you an alpha called “Shattered Ice”. It contains caps A-Z and numbers 0-9.

Coming Up

Before I call off I want to let you know that it won’t be long before the Medicine Cabinet is opened.Well, it is actually open – you may have noticed the new image/link in the menu. But I will make an official Opening on the Weekend, as I think that will probably call for a Newsletter.

So if you need to be picked up or settled down go have a look to see if the Medicine Cabinet have something to help you.

Until next post I hope the best for you all and at least a day or two of wonderful spring weather.

Felt Baby Kit

It’s Baby Time

I am feeling a bit better now and moving in the right direction. I have even been using designing as therapy so be prepared for a BLAST soon 🙂

It is now February and you might be expecting red and oink hearts all over the blog. And they will be here soon, but I want to start the month with the possible result of all that love this moth will bring….. BABIES!

Preview - Felt Baby B&G 600I have made Baby Kit with material for both baby boys and baby girls. Everything is it is felt (and heartfelt) and comes in 2 versions a flat felt version and a puffy felt version. Each part contains:

  • 1 mini block alpha
  • 1 felt alpha sheet
  • 19 baby elements

I have uploaded each part separately so you download the parts you want, but you are of course welcome to take all 4.

Before I leave you I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU for all your sympathy and get well soon wishes. It really helps knowing that you are out there thinking of me and sending me your best wishes. Sometimes it doesn’t take much more than a kind word to even out all the bad in your world. So never forget to let your love be known.

I know my MS will not be better, but I will do all I can to make all the other bad stuff go away and that is where you help me on the way. I love to make designs for you and as mentioned above I have been self-medicating with lots of computer time mainly making simple basic stuff that didn’t require thinking and concentrating (lots of Action work). Most of that will soon be published on a new page called “The Medicine Cabinet” where you can download all you like. In that way your kindness becomes my medicine that makes me able to make your medicine – nice way of paying it forward!

I will be back soon with all the Love Stuff, so sit tight and enjoy life….

Cheer Up!

I need to cheer up – and fast

If I haven’t said it already – Happy New Year to you all!

It has NOT been a happy 2015 for me so far, so I want to start this post with a personal update. If you don’t give a hoot about that skip to the next headline….

I started the new year feeling crappy physically – coughing, runny nose and all the other joys of a cold. I was also tired all the time, probably the cold in combination with my MS fatigue. And on top of that my MS made it hard for me to walk and my brain was not co-operating with me in any way.

Then on the 6th I had a meeting with my caseworker about my sickness benefits, and my world crashed. I will not waist your time describing the problems with the Danish public service, just say it’s designed to make sick people feel even worse…

I ended up with a moderate depression and has now added anti-depressives to my long list of medication. Sometimes life is just NOT what you want it to be……. I am sleeping most of the time and when I’m up I’m chain-smoking and drinking coffee by the gallon and feeling sorry for myself.

I am starting to feel a bit better and yesterday I felt good enough to take “my own medicine” = designing therapy. So I turned on the computer and made a Cheer Up Kit. It is mostly made with PS Actions as my brain is still not able to work on it’s own and my right hand is having spasms so working with a mouse is “highly entertaining”.

Cheer Up Kit

This kit is made to make me AND you feel happy, and what is more happy than coloured dots and lots of them….?

The kit contains 10 pattern packs with a paper and 9 elements each to cheer up any layout.

Welcome Christmas

I’m ready for Christmas!

As you may have noticed I really liked relaxing. My little trip was FANTASTIC and after returning I was in the mood for more “doing nothing”. That is why my Christmas is starting a little late this year.

But it’s here and I’m ready…

I will start out with a kit: Red, green, white, silver and gold. That’s traditional Christmas colours. But this year I want to change that a bit, and have made the kit “A Different Colour Christmas” for you.

I’M BACK – and I brought you Winter!

Have a Cosy Winter

Oh, how I have missed this…. Writing a post and giving away freebies.

I have been hard at work creating a Kit to make up for my absence, and I think I have done it.

The “Cosy Winter Kit” is the largest I have ever made, I think, and I will be splitting it up in daily downloads over the next week or so. I know it’s a bit early to talk winter, and that I have totally skipped Fall, but with all that heat we have been having this summer (and still have!), I am longing for cosy winter days with snow falling outside while I am snuggling up inside with hot chocolate and a good book. And that is what this Kit is all about..

CW Kit Preview 600I have stayed clear of anything Christmas in this kit as it is all about being cosy and warm. And that also means that most of the content can be used for just about any occasion and season. I hope you will enjoy using it as much as I did making it.

NOTE! – “Cosy Winter Kit” is PU/S4H but I have added a * to the label. That means that a lot of the material can be used for CU but you have to contact me to get permission. So if you find something in the kit you want to use for CU, drop me an email and ask if it’s OK.

Today’s parts for download is Papers, Elements and 1 alpha – here you go:

Families – for Non-Subscribers

For those of you who are not (yet) subscribing to the NbF Newsletter, I hereby bring you the amazing news about the NbF Families

New Families

As mentioned the other day I have been working hard on a new NbF concept. I am finally done and can tell you about it.

Introducing NbF Families!

“Families” is the new concept that will be introduced to both the Blog and the Members Area. As you may have noticed I have a weakness for making pattern kits – especially the ornament/damask kind. I, therefore, decided to create a special home for them to make it easier for you to find and download them. But maybe time will bring other kinds of families to the new pages – who knows?

That is why “Families” now have their own pages on the Blog and the Members Area. For now 1 family have been posted on the Blog and 2 families are on the Members Area. Go check out your new relatives and look out for new additions to the family.

You can find the page in the top menu – “Family” but you can also use this link:

http://nothingbutfreebies.com/blog/family/

Members can find the link to the Families on the front page of the Members Area.

Here are the previews for the family currently on the Blog – Yes, it’s all free and CU:
