Embroidered Canvas and a Sale

Embroidered Canvas Papers

It has been FAR too long since I was last here and I want to thank you for your patience.

Today I have a little time to spare so I want to bring you 3 good things:

  • A Freebie
  • Newsletter News
  • SALE

The Freebie is a (kind of) paper pack with lovely embroidered canvas “papers”. I must admit I love them…. They have such a cosy, vintage feel to them. I really hope you can find some use for them in you own work.

You get 5 papers all 12 x 12 inches, 300 dpi, JPGs, and you are welcome to use them for CU.

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…

SALE

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 🙂

Vintage Alpha

Buttons Up – Vintage Alpha

I just popped in to give you a small freebie.

This one is an Alpha I started about a million years ago but never finished. I did today, so here it is:

Vintage Button Alpha

This simple alpha contains upper and lower A-Z + Danish Æ, Ø & Å, numbers 0-9 and the symbols ?, ! and &.

It is made with Atomic Cupcake’s “Antique Bronze” action and good, old Ariel font.

You are welcome to use it for CU4CU.

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.

Double Summer Papers

Colourful Summer Papers

As promised yesterday, I hereby bring you a Summer Paper Double Freebie.

Two very different paper packs but both with lovely summer colours – joy, energy and happiness for the coming months. All the papers included are 12 x 12, 300 dpi, JPGs, and you are welcome to use them for both PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

Happy Summer (Papers)….!

Summer Papers 1 – Summer Citrus Papers

These are made from my “Big Flower Family” patterns (find them here). I  took the overlays, textured them and painted them in lovely citrus colours. Don’t they just scream “Lemonade!”?

Summer Papers 2 – Heart Ornaments

These papers are a bit more ornamental and baroque. They are made from a very special 3-tone overlay that gives them a very special colour effect. All though they have the “vintage feel” I still think the colour choice turn them into summer papers – calm summer days…?

Warning!!!!

In the near future you might find that I have lost my mind….. I have a new “obsession” and I just cant stop making more and more and more and…..

We are talking about “Slumming it” – I have totally fallen in love with stained papers and I am making tons of them. So be prepared to join my torn, stained, grungy world with a Theme Week or two very soon.

Wishing you all the very best. Till we meet again…

Text Frames

Put your important messages in a Text Frame

I promised you more elements and here they are. I have converted some lovely brushes by Diana’z Designz into different styles of text frames for that very important message or title. There are 10 different frames and I have made them in 3 different styles: Silver, Iron and Craft Cut-out. Please notice that it is NOT a mistake that frame 8 and 9 is not included as Craft Cut-outs – it simply because they are open to the sides, and that makes the craft cut-out action doing some real strange things with it….

Each frame is app. 5 inches wide but can easily be made smaller to your liking. They come as individual PNGs and you are welcome to use them for PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

Back to papers

As I can not stay away from making papers, I will be returning tomorrow with some of my latest for you. I may even make it another double… They will be in wonderful summer colours and really brighten up your days.

I have also heard from a secret source that a new family has applied for a spot on the blog. I don’t yet have the details, but stay tuned to find out – I’ll keep you informed.

Overlays (maybe) coming up….

Second to papers, overlays are one of my favourite things to make. They are so versatile and can make almost everything you want and need. However, they have one problem – They are PNGs and that means HEAVY files. So I need your help here….

If I want to post some of them for you, how would you prefer to get them? As single downloads (one in each) or can you manage download files over 30 MB?

Please leave a comment to let me know. I have SO many of them and would really like to share them with you.

Enjoy the rest of Mother’s Day and come back tomorrow for the papers.

XOXO

Attack = Double Freebie

Absence changed by Attack

I know I told you that I would be absent for a few days to kill dust bunnies, but…. A MS Attack changed those plans 🙁

I have simply been resting and doing only what I could manage (not much) and patiently waiting to get back to you. And for the dust bunnies – I hired a contract killer to take care of them!

I have started attack treatment today – 3 days of prednisone drop at the hospital – BORING!!! But it should make me totally fit again (knock on wood).

But you know me…. there is only so much time I can stay away from my computer and this site, so I have made you a special Attack / iNSD / May Freebie combo.

Old Paper Elements

I have 2 freebies for you today, both in great “Old Papers” styles I once downloaded from Start Sunflower Studio. I found that there has been so many papers lately and hardly any elements, so here goes:

Old Paper Buttons

30 buttons in 3 shapes – 10 round / 10 square / 10 oval. All with old paper look.

Individual PNGs, can be used for PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

Old Paper Label Holders

To match the buttons I have made you a pack of Label Holders, also in the Old Paper Look. For this one I have included 3 sets of screw heads to make them look fastened.

They, too, are individual PNGs and can be used for PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

May Calendar Wallpapers

Due to my attack I have not been able to finish this month’s Calendar Wallpapers. I hope you can manage your time in another way this month. I promise one for June will be made.

Enjoy this fab month of May and stay tuned for my next post. I will probably not be for the next two days as I will spend those on the hospital, but Thursday or Friday…

XOXO

Short Break

I will probably have a short break in posting as I have something I need to get done here at home (= boring cleaning 🙁 ). So don’t worry if you don’t here from me for 4-5 days. I will be back as soon as the dust bunnies are killed!

My Easter

Since many of you were kind enough to wish me a happy Easter yesterday, I just wanted to let you know that I had a fantastic Saturday! Not only did I get spoiled with my mother’s cooking, but the real spring arrived yesterday so we were able to take our coffee in the garden enjoying the warm sunshine 🙂

Suddenly it didn’t matter that much that I was actually feeling “not-so-good”…

I truly hope that you were as lucky as me and were/is able to enjoy some lovely Easter days with lots of sunshine and family love.

Latest bulletin on the Newsletter

I know my long distance care takers tried to make me postpone the Newsletter to take care of ME, but I am actually – although not up to my best – feeling in the mood for making it. So the plan is publishing tomorrow (Monday at the latest). And besides the freebies it will actually contain News 🙂

Hope to reach you through the digital express…

Get out there and enjoy life to the fullest!

XOXO

Newsletter

Even though we don’t celebrate Easter as a grand Holiday here in the house it is still days off and getting comfy with good food and relaxation. Tomorrow my sweet Mother is having the annual Easter Lunch so that day is “off computer”. That is nice, but it also means that Easter is not the time with the most on line time, and I still haven’t gotten around to writing this month’s Newsletter – sorry. I do, however, plan to get around to it on Sunday and you can expect another Vintage Pressed Freebie with the newsletter together with another Freebie and maybe even a third… who knows?

Now, I will go back to enjoying Easter and I suggest you do the same. See you soon 🙂

Pressed – in so many ways

Being pressed in a good way

Have you missed me much? I could say I’m sorry for not posting in several days but you know what – I’m not! I was in a way pressed into it by my long distance health care advisors, who told me to rest and take it easy. So I did – and it was good (and necessary). Thank you to Vi and Stacey for taking so good care of me 🙂

Pressed designs

But today it is not only me that is pressed. The freebies I have for you have also been under pressure and I hope you’ll like it as there will be more of the kind in the coming week. We are talking “Pressed Frames” = different vintage element with embedded frames.

Today’s pressed designs are in 2 related packs – one with cards and one with the cards made into frames.

Vintage Pressed Frame Cards

In this pack you get 6 cards in old paper with different decorative frames pressed into them. You can use them as they are with only your text added, or you can decorate them with your choice of images and colours.

Each card is app. 4½ x 6½ inches, 300 dpi, but can be re-sized to you needs.

They can be used for PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

The pack is split into 2 Zips so make sure you download both.
