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.

Pull Up A Chair – I Do

Want to pull up a chair?

Or maybe a bunch of chairs? I have made you a very special bundle Freebie for today named “Pull Up A Chair”. And there is a very special reason for that….

At the moment my creative juices are flowing like a waterfall and I am working 24-7 to get it all done. We are talking Blog changes, Members Area changes, loads of designs for both and lots, lots more. I hope to be done soon but it does take some time and I will probably not be posting as often as usual for the next couple of weeks. And that is why I have made you a bundle of freebies for today so you are kept occupied until my next post.

So pull up a chair and and start downloading…

The “Pull Up A Chair” Paper Bundle

This bundle is made from a Chair Pattern I have posted on the Members Area and contains 5 different paper packs. I have been playing around with textures and have come up with these varieties:

Pull Up A Chair – Canvas

8 papers with canvas texture. 12 x 12 inches, 300 dpi, JPGs.

Cute Easter

I’ve made you a Cute Easter Pack

Simply because I wanted to…. To begin with Easter is cute but a Cute Easter was something I needed for my own use and of course I made enough to share it with you.

The Cute Easter Pack could have been a Family, but I decided to make it a normal Pack/Kit as it had not yet grown big enough to be a full family. That doesn’t mean it’s not big. Actually the total size is around 86 MB, so you’ll have plenty of downloading to do.

The pack consists of elements only Рno papers today!  You get cute little bunnies and fancy Easter eggs in different styles and colours. I hope you can find use for it in either layouts or Easter cards, but after finishing I noticed that the bunnies are suitable for baby stuff too.

The colours are nice pastels suitable for Easter and spring and the individual images come in felt and paper styles, and a few glossy eggs.

Everything is full size, 300 dpi, PNGs. You are welcome to use it for CU as well as PU and S4O/S4H.

Here is the full bundle – the download links can be found beneath with the individual part’s previews.

Sorry again…

I just want to apologize once more for my April’s Fool. I realize that It actually had a negative emotional effect on some of you and that was NEVER my intention. I do, however, have a feeling that you are all able to laugh at it now and I hereby promise NOT to do it again.

I have so much free stuff for you just waiting to be uploaded this month and I sure hope you will be back to get it all.

I DO love you all.

Cute Easter signature

Who’s the Fool now?

… certainly not April. And it’s not me. So I guess the Fool must be you!

I am surprised that you fell for it. How could you ever imagine that I would leave you? This site is my life right now and the only thing that keeps me standing, and you are my family. I would NEVER leave you like that.

But I actually pulled off the April’s Fool – with mixed feelings, however. On one hand I got to “go to my own funeral” and am happy to see I will be missed, but on the other hand I did something that made you sad. For that I am sorry….

But I’m also a bit proud that I managed to fool you ūüėČ

Let me make it totally clear:

Yesterday’s post about closing this site was an April’s Fool!!!!

I will be here until they carry me out feet first and I will continue to make you Freebies after May 1st. I just hope I haven’t offended you so much you wont come back again.

No fools – no joke Freebie

To make up for my fool business I will offer you a Freebie that I personally think is BEAUTIFUL. It’s a pack of Spring Canvas Chevron Papers in the most wonderful spring colours.

The Paper Pack contains 20 papers, 12 x 12 inches, 300 dpi, JPGs. You are welcome to use them for CU.

They are split into 2 ZIPs so make sure to download both.

Spring Festival

Spring must be close

I have a feeling that my wait for spring will very soon be over. It feels, looks and smells like it is just around the corner and to celebrate that I will be dedicating the next week or two to

Spring Festival Logo 100

I will be posting Freebies for Spring and Easter of all kinds and hope that this, at least, will bring the feeling of spring to you all.

The first Spring Festival Freebie is actually 3 Freebies. 3 Paper Packs to kick off the Spring Festival. Papers scanned and sized by myself. The quality may not be as good as the normal standard (bad scanner) but I hope you can still find use for it.

Coming Up for the Spring Festival

Over the next week or two you will find more Spring goodies on this page. At the moment I have planned more papers – patterned and decorative – frames and at least one alpha. But much more will probably turn up, so check in from time to time to see what I come up with for the Spring Festival celebrations.

And for my lovely Members: You will feel the Spring Festival too ūüôā

See you soon!

I’m still alive – and bringing you IKEA Freebie

IKEA Freebie

I’m sorry to have been missing in action for a while, but me and my family have been under heavy enemy fire when it comes to illness for the last couple of weeks. But I’m out from under the quilt and ready to hit the keyboard.

My freebie for today is called IKEA and that is not only because you have to assemble it yourself. It’s also because the pattern used is inspired by (stolen from) my IKEA laundry bag. The “IKEA Papers & OLs” contains

  • 6 example papers, 12 x 12, 300 dpi, JPGs
  • 1 transparent overlay, 12 x 12, 300 dpi, PNG¬†(incl. separate PNGs for each layer)
  • 1 solid overlay, 12 x 12, 300 dpi, JPG

The example papers are made to inspire you to use the overlays in many different ways – coloured, with styles, with patterns, etc. Just play around with it and get wonderful results.

The pack is free to use for CU as well as PU and S4O/S4H.

New alphas in the Members Area

Even with high fever I managed to finish a load of alphas for the Members Area. 9 new alphas have been added and they are all of the “edible” kind = made from food related styles. Check out the Members Area Gallery to see them all.

And if you love them a.k.a. want them the membership fee will only make the 9 alphas 2.75$ a piece – well actually 1.39$ as the alphas each come in two versions – with and without drop shadows. That’s a bargain on it’s own, and then there is ALL the other great designs in the Members Area….

I hope my health allows me to be back here again very soon.

Birthday Launch – and a CU4CU Freebie

Birthday Site Launch

I promised you a big launch of a finish website on my Birthday. Today is my Birthday. Is the site finish?

Well, almost. The most important things are in place, and I’m satisfied with the results so far. Now I only have to hope that you will be satisfied too, cause today is the day…

Welcome to the (almost) finish web site of Nothing but Freebies.

What’s new?

First of all, of course, there is the new look, but you already know about that (and thank you for your positive feedback).

  • A slider has beed added to the front page showing all recent freebies and new will be added for each posting.
  • The top menu have grown and could look better, but for now this is what it is.
  • But most important….
  • The Members Area is now up and running!

Members Area

My best Birthday present this year was when I late last night could lean back and say “Done!”. I have been working almost around the clock to get it finish for today – uploads take a bloody long time!

But now I can welcome anyone who wants to join my little club.

Member Area Ticket

The details of the What, How and Why is described on the “Membership – What & How” page, but here is a short summery:

  • As a member you will get access to the Members Area and thereby tons of exclusive Freebies and other goodies.
  • You become a member by purchasing the access code from the PayPal button found in the menu on the right.
  • The price for lifetime access is only $25 once and for all.
  • Special gifts and events will be initiated in the beginning of 2014.
  • A Members Newsletter will be added as soon as the member list is long enough.

Now isn’t that a Membership worth considering…

I really hope you will enjoy both the open-to-all site and the Members Area.

What is to come?

One of the things I didn’t get done in time is the Backlist. The plan is to move some of my older Freebies to a Backlist, just like publishers do with books. I hope it will be done before Christmas.
Neither did I manage to get through all the posts from Blogger so some of them look a little peculiar – but they should be working.

Birthday & Launch Freebie

No post without a Freebie. Today I chose to take one of the overlay packs from the Members Area and turn it into a paper pack for you. The circle patterns are a bit retro, and when I saw today’s colour palette from Design Seeds there was no doubt. Here is “Retro Circle Papers” for you:
