Members News

This post is for members, BUT I have added a little Christmas-something for all at the end.

I have been busy (very busy) uploading new material to the Members Area. Below is a Preview List of all the news. You can also see them in the Members Area Gallery.

Most important is what’s added in “Christmas”:

Added in “Papers”

Added in “Alphas”

Added in “PS/PSE Presets”


Added in “Elements”

If you are not a member but want to be, you can find the details here.

And now for the non-members who miss today’s Christmas Freebies:

Go HERE to check if you have missed some of my old Christmas items – you never know!

See you all tomorrow!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.

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

What is time?

I promised you to be back in a few days…… That was 6 months ago!!!!!!

It must be time to let you all know – once again – that I am still here ๐Ÿ™‚

There are many reasons for my long absence but summed up into 1: I did NOT take as good care of myself as I should have. Instead of relaxing and resting I decided to move – far away. I will tell you all about this big life-turning event very soon.

I am between houses at the moment and therefore without my own internet connection, That is why I have to ask you for a little more patience,,,

I plan to be back with more than just these excuses in the beginning of the new year, but I will probably find a connection to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

So please hang in there it WILL NOT be another 6 months ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lots of Christmas Love – Trine

Family News and more…

This is not about my family… Its about A family. I have FINALLY finished some of my planned work and one of the projects was a brand new blog family – The Discover Family!

It is now uploaded and ready to be adopted by you:

DF Index 600175 papers in all made in the LOVELY colours from the Discover Palette by Marisa Lerin over at Pixel Scrapper.

Click the image above to get to the download page.

Very Late Blog Train entry

Speaking of Pixel Scrapper… It was my intention to enter a pack to the May Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, but like everything else in my life at the moment it was procrastinated so I didn’t get it ready in time. But as it was also a request made by Holly Wolf I want you to have it now.

The papers in the above pack are JPGs but I have also made each paper in transparent PNGs. They are, however, very large files (app. 25 MB each) so I didn’t add them to the download. Should you want them I have uploaded them for you to get. Below are the links to the folders where you can download them one at a time.

A personal Update

I want to say Thank You for all the kind comments you have left for me these past weeks. It really boosts my spirit to know that so many of you are thinking of me, caring about me and praying for me and my health. You have no idea how happy it makes me feel. So THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I return lots of cyber-hugs and -kisses right back at you ๐Ÿ™‚

I have now now been taking my new medication for 4 weeks and let me tell you – it’s been close to hell. I had every single side effect on the list and have been in a very bad state both mentally and physically. But it finally seems to turn for the better now and I have agreed with the doctor to carry on for 2 more months to see if it levels itself out and start being a good thing. And in 2 weeks I will be taking my long awaited holiday escape to my favourite place in the world to relax and enjoy the sea and fresh air for a full week ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be back very soon with news for all you Members and a blog freebie, so keep an eye out.

Lots of Love and Gratitude…

Trine 3 - day7


Hi all,

I just want to update you on my progress.

The MS treatment has stolen all my energy (hopefully just for a couple of days) so the next posts and new MA material will be a bit delayed. I am feeling OK just totally without energy and sleeping A LOT, so no need to worry – it’s all normal ๐Ÿ™‚

I do, however, have energy enough to clarify one thing about “Messy Easter Day 4”:

Many of you have commented on the missing link for the last paper pack, and I can understand your confusion. The “non-working links” are now removed as all 3 paper packs are included in the first download. So if you have downloaded from the link below the image with all 3 previews you have all 3 papers packs = Lightly Crumpled, Mulberry and Stained.

I will be back as soon as possible with all the new material ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of Love – Trine

Out of time!

I have to admit it – I’m out of time….

The combination of Christmas preparations and my limited energy, I am SO behind for tomorrow. Cleaning, cooking, decorating – it all take lots more time than I have anticipated.

That is whyย  – with deep regrets – I have to inform you that I will not be able to post the last Christmas freebies until after Christmas. It goes for both Blog and Members Area, an sadly the Newsletter too ๐Ÿ™

I do, however, promise you that you will get it all as soon as peace enters my world, and time stops flying.

But you will get something. As promised I will show you my Christmas Tree:

To every single one of you:

Newsletter for June

I have now – finally – finished the next Newsletter and it will be send later today or tomorrow morning at the latest. As usual it contains previews of what is to come, Commenter of the Month and a few freebies. So keep an eye on your inbox…


How can a freebie site have a sale?

They can’t really….

But I have decided to celebrate my new status as employed AND the fact that you are all so kind and stay with me in spite of the gaps in postings. That is why I have lowered the price on the NbF Members Area Fee for the rest of June.

You can now become a member for only 15$ (usual price 25$)

Just use the new “Buy Now” button in the right menu.

BUT REMEMBER – It’s only for the rest of this month (June 30th is the last day).

You can find the “Whats” and the “Hows” right here

Until next time….. Smile ๐Ÿ™‚

Fantastic News & New Family

Can News be good and bad at the same time?

Well, I think it can – let me explain:

I have news for you that I consider beyond fantastic, and I think you will too. But at the same time this particular piece of news is followed by some consequences that both you ans I may find belonging in the “bad category”….

Here it comes: I’VE GOT A JOB!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

A real full time job doing things I love = communications.

It’s been about 6 years since I was last in a regular, paying job so both my mood and financial situation have got a serious boost. I am starting tomorrow and I can’t wait.

However —–

This also means that I will have much less time designing ๐Ÿ™ But I promise not to leave you completely. I still need a break from time to time. But the frequency with which I post may slow down a bit. I still have lots in my “ready to post” folder and you may not notice anything right away, but I want you to know that it may happen at some point.

I hope you can be just half as happy as I am.

New Family

But that is not the only news of today. I also have a new family for you.

As you may remember, I have been extremely busy lately with a lot of new productions and changes to the site. The results will come graduallyย  over the summer, but today I can reveal the first one: The Enamel Family!

It’s a somewhat different family, but I think you will love it.

As one of the site changes, I have decided to move each family into their own pages to prevent the marathon scroll, and the enamel family is the first one to move in to their own “flat”.

Here is the Family Tree and below you will find the link to the page for downloading.

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:

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:

I hope you will enjoy it all.
