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.

Summer Colours 1

Now that summer has really come to stay I think we need some colourful freebies to show it. I have made 2 products for you today full of summer colours. The fist one is pack of Candy Buttons.

It contains 42 buttons in wonderful candy summer colours and they come in 3 different styles – solid, transparent and fabric – and in round, oval and square. Mix them up or use individual, they will always brighten up any layout.

The buttons are individual PNGs and you are welcome to use them for CU4CU.

Summer Colours 2

Next up is a very basic bundle full of colours. We are talking Gradient Papers and lots of them. The bundle contains 5 paper packs with 5-8 papers in each making a total of 30 gradient papers.

They are all 12×12, 300 dpi, JPGs and as they are as basic as they can be I have no rules for the use = you can do whatever you like with them. All colours are – of course – from Design Seeds, so if you wish to credit someone, credit her.

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!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™ 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 graduallyΒ  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.

Broken or missing links

I am constantly checking the links of this site and have even gotten a “Broken Link Checker” for WordPress. Together we catch many of the culprits, but as there are SO MANY links, lots of them quite old, it is impossible for me to get them all. That is why I ask you this favour:

If you discover a broken or missing link, please take a few seconds to leave a comment about it so I can get it fixed as soon as possible.

The same goes for corrupted files in my download zips.

Thank you in advance πŸ™‚

Please enjoy your day and come back tomorrow for some more Spring Festival.

Painter’s Alpha and Wallpaper Calendar

Messy Painter’s Alpha

Last week HG Designs uploaded a free style pack with the greatest styles (as usual). One of them spoke to me and said “make an alpha out of me” – so I did…

“Painter’s Alpha” is an alpha made in messy, multi-colour paint drips and in is perfect for so many things. Just picture a layout with the children in a creative mood or as a splash of colour on a black/white layout…

The Painter’s Alpha contains A-Z, a-z, 0-9 + a few (very few) symbols. The letters are all individual PNGs, 300 dpi, and can be resized to you liking. You are welcome to use tit for CU as well as PU and S4O/S4H.

As usual, I have made the alpha in 2 versions – one with the drop shadow from the style and one without. Due to the size of the alpha I have separated the two alphas into separate downloads, so if you want both with and without shadows be sure to download both.

Screen Wallpapers for March

As we have now entered a new month (again – how time flies) it’s is time for a new screen wallpaper calendar. This month I have made it in two versions. One has a full screen decoration, and the other is made smaller to make room for your short cuts. The calendar is same size on both.

SO far behind – Templates and Wallpaper

I am so far behind with everything. A head cold takes a lot of time to maintain. But now I think I’m ready to catch up with two freebies – Paper Templates and Wallpapers – and two CotM announcements – December and January.

Today’s Freebie – Paper Templates

Today’s freebie is a trip back to basics. I have made you 3 Paper Templates for dotted papers, striped papers and chequered papers (gingham). I have also included 4 papers made from the templates in colours fit for the upcoming Valentine’s Day. In the Zip you’ll find:

  • Layered PDS of each template (grey scale)
  • PNGs for each layer (grey scale) – can also be used as Overlays
  • 4 pink-red papers, JPG.

Everything is 12 x 12, 300 dpi, and as they are 100% me-made you are welcome to use it for CU4CU.
