End of Spring Green Week

Green Week is over

I hope you have collected all the green of this week. But if you still want more Spring Greens here is the final batch…

2 packs of Mixed Spring papers in green and white – different patterns, different textures but always something green.

I actually made just the green pack but then I thought it would be nice to invert them so that white was the major colour. And that’s the way I ended up with 2 (almost) similar packs. Take your pick from green or white or take them both – you deserve it!

Mixed Spring Papers 1

16 green/white papers with a nice spring feel. All are 12×12, 300 dpi, JPGs, and you are welcome to use them for CU as well as PU and S4O/S4H.

Mixed Spring Papers 2

16 white/green papers with a more fresh/clean spring feel. All are 12×12, 300 dpi, JPGs, and you are welcome to use them for CU as well as PU and S4O/S4H.

Following early Spring

When everything has turned green something new happens… Arrival of the colours! And that is why the coming weeks here on NbF will be a celebration of colours in all it’s forms. Flowers will be a big part of it. So come back soon for a blooming celebration of colours.

Lots of Love

Green Week 2 – Spring Papers


It’s the the best season (together with fall). Perfect temperatures, warming sun and hope springs eternal… It’s like starting over, beginning again – a blank canvas. For me a new year doesn’t start on January 1st but on the first day of Spring. And it has arrived now 🙂

So today I will bring you a little bit of spring in form of 2 spring-green paper packs with my best hopes for your “new year”.

Floral Papers 1 – Apple Slice

6 papers with floral patterns in the colours of a juicy green apple.

More Stained Papers – because you liked them

And the winner is….. Stained Papers!

In the last freebie with plain vs stained papers the favourite turned out to be the stained version. And I didn’t even asked…

Therefore, I am now bringing you a double feature of more stained papers, just because you showed your liking of them. It’s actually more than a double feature – it’s a fivefold since one of the freebies is a 4-pack. That means 5 packs of stained papers just for you.

Stained Blossoming Stripes

The fist one is a stained version of the “Blossoming Striped PP” I posted earlier this year. It contains 12 papers in yummy colours that are all CU4CU.

Stained Papers Multipack 1

A pack of 4 sets of stained papers – also papers that have been posted as plain earlier. The pack contains “Stained Butterflies” (CU), “Stained Tulips” (CU4CU), “Stained Foliage” (CU) and “Stained Ornaments” (CU). 21 papers in total.

I hope you will like these as much as the previous and make a stained mark on your creations.


As mentioned last time I am preparing for Halloween at the moment. It will be a little less scary than the previous years, but still dark and gloomy. I have decided to make this year’s Halloween freebies a battle between Dark & Light and hope for the best.

I hope you will all join me in this dark side/light side battle over the next week or two – I promise there will be very little blood and a minimum of heart-stopping scares.

See you on the dark side soon…

Christmas Backgrounds – for a festive base

You can never have too many Christmas Backgrounds!

When scrapping your Christmas memories you need pretty Christmas backgrounds to put them in their right habitat. Today I have made you 4 of them for your personal use. You get Christmas backgrounds with pine, with holly and with twinkling lights, all ready to present your wonderful Christmas pictures.

They are all 12 x 12, 300 dpi, jpgs, and I have made them as basic as possible for you to decorate them to your liking.

When you have used these Christmas backgrounds for your layouts, I would really love to see them. Maybe we can make a little Christmas 2013 Gallery Special in the beginning of the new year? Send them to me and I will make sure to show them off.

Want Good News?

As you may have noticed there is a new feature in the side menu. I have finally found a Newsletter supplier that I (think) I can handle. So if you would like to receive news from Nothing but Freebies just register with your name and mail address in the top right corner and I will make sure you never miss a post or a bit of news. I promise that your in box will NOT be bombarded. My plan is to send out a newsletter about twice a month and extra if something big happens. I will be looking forward to seeing you all in the news room.

Lots of love and see you soon…

Foliage Patterns – CU Freebie

Have you missed me this last week? I took a much needed break but now I’m back. After a month filled with blood, death and horror, I find it’s time for something pretty so…. It’s foliage time!

I have made you a foliage pack with patterns and overlays for you to create your own fall papers. And when that time comes, spring and summer papers. You get:

  • PAT file with 1 foliage pattern in six sizes (black, transparent)
  • 6 grey scale overlays (JPG)
  • 6 transparent overlays (PNG)
  • 6 pattern squares

I may call this past week my break, but that’s not actually true. I may not have posted anything but I have been awfully busy getting the NbF Member’s Area ready for launch. It’s something of a mouthful but I carry on as hard as I can and hope to be ready for launching on my Birthday (28/11).

On top of that, I am in the process of moving the old posts from the Blogger site to this one and as the plugin I got to make that move easy DIDN’T WORK that is hard tiresome work as well. If any of you have been through that process of moving posts from Blogger to WordPress and know an easy way – PLEASE let me know!

I’ll be back soon so until then – have a great weekend and stay safe and happy!
