Summer Summer Summer – I Love It

Summer makes me a totally different person. I feel better both physically and mentally, and the sun and higher temperatures are a gift from above. And most important: I can spend time in my garden!

I love my garden. As I mentioned last year it is my therapy and makes me forget everything else. It doesn’t matter if I have to work hard or just sit back with a book, although the hard work is still taking over most of my time. I hope that next summer the garden will be according to my plans for it. But until then I just embrace it every day.

Enough “happy talk”, I just wanted all of you to know that I’m feeling good at the moment. And that allows me to take a short break from garden work to deliver you some freebies and make up for lost time. Can you believe it’s been more than 2 months?

To get the most of my up-time I decided to bring you a LOAD of freebies in one posting. The theme is “Colours of Summer” but they should be versatile enough to use all year.

01 – Coloured Wooden Frames Bundle (CU)

First up is a 5-pack bundle of coloured wooden page frames.Each frame is 12×12 inches, 300 dpi, PNGs

Gardening – Skills or Luck?

As mentioned before, I am now into gardening – or am I?

It seems almost impossible to keep up with the weeds. Remove them, and 2 days later new ones appear. And now that we have finally had some rain here on the island it’s even worse….

We have not yet been able to sow our lawn due to constant weed, and a garden just isn’t a garden with a dirt patch instead of a lawn! We have considered roll lawn, but even that needs clean soil for success. But gardening is more than flowers and lawn. I have happily been eating tomatoes, potatoes, blueberries and rhubarbs from my own garden and that is a fantastic experience 🙂 .

Weeds vs. produce is a constant fight – does the small amount of fruits and veggies make up for a garden looking like sh..? I don’t think so… The only solution is down on your knees and weeding, weeding, weeding. Gardening Sucks sometimes…

But sometimes you get lucky!

… or lazy. Below is a picture from my garden of a plant that I a few months ago took for weed and planned to remove. But my laziness took over and it was untouched for a few weeks. Hurray for lazy gardening – it turned out to be a beautiful Clematis…..

Gardening - Clematis

Today – to celebrate my gardening skills 🙂 – I am offering you a Paper Pack Bundle Freebie with floral vines in multiple colours.

It contains 7 paper packs – 38 papers total – all 12×12, 300 dpi, and can be used for CU4U.

Good luck on you digital gardening – see you soon.

Triple Tuesday

I have been neglecting you for days now – I’m sorry. And because of that I have made this day into Triple Tuesday. That means you get 3 freebies in one post.

First up is a big pack of Chevron Arrows. I have taken colour palettes from Design Seeds and made 20 arrows and then used Atomic Cupcake Actions to make them in 4 different textures. That gives you a pack of 80 arrows in all to brighten up any layout. Because of the size of this pack into two downloads.

Next I have some Damask Papers for you. It’s a pack named Distressed Pear, not because the pear is in any way in distressed (no fruit was harmed in the making) but more a reference to the colours and textures of the papers 🙂

The pack contains 6 papers for CU4CU.

Last, but no means least, an Alpha. I have made this special summer Water Melon Alpha with Sonarpos’ Water Melon Style. It contains A-Z + Numbers.

Summer Gingham Alpha

Since the summer is taking a vacation here in Denmark I thought I would make my own 🙂

That is why today’s freebie is a Gingham Alpha in 4 summer colours – did anyone say picnic???. Each alpha contains A-Z, 0-9 plus ?, !, &.

All are separate png letters and you may use them for CU.

The style used for this alpha is made by one of my favourite designers – Mommyish.

Therapy – News from the Medicine Cabinet

Therapy has been needed….

The last week or so I have had an urgent need for Creative Therapy. I won’t go into details, just say that things are not going good with the move. So as always when I find myself in a crisis, I turn to PS Action Designing as my therapy. Easy and simple and taking my mind off the bad stuff. When the world is crumpling – turn to creating.

The good thing about the bad thing is that YOU get to harvest the produce…

I have made a BIG bundle for the Medicine Cabinet/Uppers in the most “Upping” colours. It’s called “A Year in Colour” and provide you with loads of basic elements and papers to use for adding to your own designs. The colour palette is not my own – it’s stolen… You can read more about that on the download page.

Click on the Palette to get to the download page:

Ready for Easter?

All though I don’t go to work every day I still look forward to Holidays like Easter. Not for the “Off-work-time” bot for the chance to do something nice with friends and family who are lucky to have time off. Personally, I’m just “chilling out” and take 1 day out to have Easter lunch with my mother 🙂

Some of you have been kind enough to ask how I’m doing health-wise – thank you so much for your concern. The most positive way I can answer that is “I’m doing OK-ish”…. On the 14th April I start a new treatment ans cross my fingers that it will calm my MS down a bit and give me more good days than bad days.

But maybe the coming very long weekend will get me in a better shape here and now.

I wish you all a wonderful Easter and hope you have time to drop by for my Messy Easter Bundle. It will be spread over 4 days starting tomorrow, then Friday, Saturday and Monday (Sunday I’m off with Mummy).

See you then 🙂

Flower Stickers

Just to keep you waiting – Flower Stickers

While I am working hard on all my spring and Easter products I give you a small “While You Wait” Freebie consisting of 9 beautiful flower stickers.

The flower stickers come in 3 colours and 3 designs. They are full size (8×8 cm) and may be used for CU.

Play around with them – layer them in a bouquet, play with drop shadows and blending modes and you can really create something fantastic.

Flower Stickers are OK – but what are we waiting for….?

Don’t worry, you won’t be disappointed!

Tomorrow you will find a collection of Peony Overlays in different colour tones and textures.

My plans for Easter includes a big bundle with the name “Messy Easter”.

And on top of that a new family is about to move in – “Flora Family” – lovely family!

I have not forgotten my faithful members. 2 new Kits/Bundles are about to be born.

There will probably be more coming – you know me, I am unstoppable!

Until tomorrow – add flowers to your life 🙂

Let me Sunburst you

Sunbursts from a heat wave

Now that both my WP and I are back to normal (knock-knock) I want to present you to the leftovers from the awful heat wave we have had here in Copenhagen for the last month or so. For those of you living in the warmer climates it’s probably hard to understand so  let me explain: There is a standing joke about the weather in Denmark saying that we have two winters – a white one and a green one! If summer temperatures reach 25 degrees C we are calling it a tropical summer and need time off from work to stand it 🙂

But for the last month we have had day time temperatures around 30 C and nights above 25 C = no activities during the day and no sleep at night!

But now we are back to a more normal summer and I can think straight again. And that means Freebies for you…

Sunburst Papers

I have collected a bunch of this last months sunbursts and made them into papers for you – I hope you will enjoy my left-over heat wave.

One final “I’m Sorry!”

It seems that every time I write a new post I feel the urge to start with “I’m Sorry”… Sorry for being absent, sorry for not keeping my promised deadlines, sorry for…. sorry for……..

Now that has to stop!

I hereby give you one final “I’M SORRY!”. Then you can go to this post every time you feel the need for it.

The rest of this post will be used for compensation.
