Freebie: Lushes Jewel

Pin It
Hi Blog Fans

Well its been a fairly up and down month or so since I last posted. As many of you know I have not only this little piece of cyberspace, but a PSP tag tutorial site and PSP forum. In late September after a long and painful illness my partner in crime in these ventures Mz Lushes, passed away from complications of her illness.

This has left rather a lot of extra responsibility for me, even though I have some fabulous staff at the forum, its more the having to make decisions on my own .... and having no-one to back me up quite the way Lushes did.

Todays kit is dedicated to my friend, who I will miss more than I can say. It is called Lushes Jewel, because that is what she was. I sure hope you enjoy it.

It is saved as a psd file @ 300 dpi so if you really wanted to it could be used for printing.

OMG - Moving House Sux

Pin It
Hi Blog fans

So sorry to be out of touch for so long. We had to move house. So I was too busy searching for a new house and then packing up and moving, my poor little blog got neglected.

Moving is just the worst job. I hate it sooooo much. I guess at least I had a good clean out and got rid of lots of junk, now I have to make sure I don't accumulate again. I think we will be having 6 monthly clean outs so it never gets so much again.

Before I lost my internet I did buy a big lot of commercial use goodies, that I didn't have time to even download let alone use. So I will be downloading them asap and I hope to have a new kit out for you all soon. I do still have some unpacking to do but I figure I deserve a little time out from the unpacking every now and then.

Take care blog fans - I'll be back soon

I won an Award

Pin It
Wow .... I won an Award. Its so nice to be recognised by a fellow scrapper. Thankyou Angel :)

Now I need to pass on the Award to 7 blogs I think are 'Brilliant', so here is my list:

Norma at Swheat Creations
Shawna at Scrap Stuff with PSP
Toni at Scraparoni by Toni
Nicki at BabyCakes Scraps

Now I know the rules say 7 but honestly ... all my favourite blogs have already recieved the award and I don't want to make any extra work for them, so I am leaving my list at 4.

Also - I've fixed the link to my paypal donation so it should be working for you again.

Much hugs

New Freebie: My Darkest Love

Pin It
Hiya Blog fans

Long time no see eh. If you read my earlier post you will see I've been out of action for a while but I'm back now and with a new kit for you. It's called 'My Darkest Love' and I hope you like.

Thankyou to all who have left me such lovely comments, I appreciate each and every one of them. It is for you guys that I take the trouble to make my freebies.

Speaking of freebies ... the donation kitty is ... well ....empty. So if anyone is feeling the love click the Paypal button and leave a donation to help keep these kits ALWAYS free.

If you can't donate, that's ok too. I totally understand being broke, its a permanent state of affairs for me these days. The old saying about you never appreciate what you have until it is gone is true, I didn't realise how lucky I was to have my health and a decent well paying job until I got too sick to work. Not that I'm having a woe is me moment, I'm a whole lot better off than a lot of people, and I'm darn grateful for that.

Gosh that's about the longest blog you've ever had from me, so enough. On to the freebie. It is at 200dpi and saved as a psd file so it can be opened by both PSP and Photoshop users. Hope this helps out. I did it at the higher resolution too so perhaps it may be more useful for traditional scrappers.

In 3 parts for my dialup friends. Enjoy!

I've Been Tagged

Pin It I have just been tagged by the the fabulously talented Toni at Toni's Scraparoni
Thanks for taggin' me hun. And also from sweet AngelWolf at Cherry Creek Creations It really surprises me to find out who visits my blog.

So, here's what ya have to do when you're tagged:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Wow I actually started this post a month ago ... I can't believe its been that long. I have been really really sick for weeks. I know I'm really sick when I don't go to the computer and I didn't touch it for nearly 3 weeks. However I am finally back on my feet and feeling funky so I will actually finish off my list. I also have a new kit almost finished so keep your eyes peeled for that in the next couple of days.

Here's my 7 facts.

1. I'm terrified of heights and enclosed spaces, elevators seriously make me nervous.

2. I was raised by my grandparents and only went to live with my mum when I was 8, guess that accounts for why we were more like friends than mother and daughter.

3. I am the only child of an only child - so I don't have any aunties or uncles or any 1st cousins.

4. Clowns freak me out.

5. Frogs terrify me silly. Comes from having an outdoor toilet as a child that was full of frogs, so when you sat on the loo, they used to touch you with their icky little sucker feet, right on your butt!!

6. I was born in Inglewood in Queensland, Australia and it was 110 degree F the day I was born ... no wonder I don't like the heat.

7. My partner and I have lived together for 22 years, everyone thinks we are married but we've never done the deed. Maybe when we're 70. LOL

So here are my 7 victims ... er 'tags'

1. Frosted Illusions

2. Barbi's Lost and Found

3. Sentimental Style

4. VixPSP

5. Sophisticated Scraps

6. Just A Girl

7. Weescotslass

Freebie: Wild Rose

Pin It
Hi There Blogfans

Another new kit for you today. I was on a bit of a roll the other day and actually made this one straight after Barbi's Gone Dotti, but decided to give you all a bit of a break before I posted it.

Its back to my more usual style. A little softer and less 'bright'. I must say I enjoyed making the bright dotty one, but oh my eyes hurt by the time I finished it.

I've included some matching sequins and glitter tiles in this kit, so you can make your own swirly things (or whatever) you want to co-ordinate with the kit. Even use the glitter for making names with. Just load it into your material palette and away you go.

Its in 4 downloads, again for the peeps on dialup.

Hope you enjoy

Freebie: Barbi's Gone Dotti

Pin It
Hiya Blog Fans

Gosh it seems likes ages since I made a kit. I set myself a task to make something quite bright, as I tend to go for soft pretty things when I'm creating and ignore the brights. So put your sunglasses on!!! LOL

It's dedicated to a very special friend of mine, Pinkie Minx aka Barbi, who is a wonderful and generous friend, that I feel very privledged to know.

I've been surprised at my forum to find so many people on dial-up so I have broken the kit into 4 parts. Hopefully that helps for those of you on dial-up.

Remember if you want to help keep my stuff free you can scroll down to the PayPal button and make a donation. I see more and more PTU taggers kits out there, and I promise you, mine will always be free. You are under no obligation to donate, but every bit I get I put into buying resources to make you guys more stuff with.

Okay that's enough babbling from me .... here is BARBI'S GONE DOTTI

Iced Delight Freebie

Pin It Hey there Blog Fans

Wow 2 kits in a week. I got all inspired and got stuck into the new kit the last couple of days. One of my forum minxes suggested pink & aqua as the colours, so this one is for you Debi Lynn. I tried to post it last night, but I don't know if it was Blogger or my Computer but it wouldn't play nice. That's okay though, as I thought of a few more things I want to add to it, while I was lying in bed peeved at the computer, so there will be some extras coming too in the next few days.

I would like to say a special thankyou to those people who kindly donated some dollars to help me keep things free. You can see the first of my purchases in the flowers for this kit. I can't thank you enough for your donations. Keep your eye on your inboxes, as I will be sending you a special little extra too.

The kit is saved to be compatible with PhotoShop, so if PS is your tool of choice you can play with it too.

Well I think that's enough from me - lets have a look at the kit. Its in 3 downloads for my friends on dial-up.

New Freebie: Aged Beauty

Pin It Hello Blog Fans

Well I finally got the new kit finished. Darn time consuming things they are. LOL

Its called Aged Beauty and I hope you like it.

If you scroll down to my previous post you will see that I have decided against selling my kits for now, but I have added a PayPal button, so if you like and you can afford to help me get some new and exciting goodies to help make kits for you all, you can help out. I certainly don't expect it, but would appreciate it. Okay enough about that ... on to the kit. LOL

Its in 3 downloads, for my friends on dial-up.

Selling My Kits

Pin It
Well I've made a decision with regard to selling my kits and have decided that at this point in time I wont be creating paid kits. The reason being that there are so many psp tutorials being written now with PTU kits that I think it is killing our pastime. I am not going to do anything to help that along.

However, in order to bring you new and exciting freebies I would like to purchase some commercial use items, but that is not something I can afford at the moment. So I have decided to add a PayPal donation button. That way if you have downloaded and liked my freebies and are in a position to lend a hand you can. If you are a bit like me and short of dollars, you don't have to pay to get my stuff. This is the fairest thing I could think of.

If you can see you way free to donate a few dollars - I'm not asking for any set amount, you can click the paypal button and it will take you off to paypal.

Thankyou for your continued support and all the wonderful comments you leave for me. I'm working on a new kit at the moment ... it's called Aged Beauty and its in earthy tones. Should be ready in the next couple of days. Afraid the forum and real life are keeping me a tad busy.


PS: Have you written a tut with my kits? If so leave me a message so I can post them up here

Pink Lemonade

Pin It
Welcome Blog Fans

Its seems like ages since I made you a kit. I've been working on this one for a while. My psp died, my internet went out and then I reformatted my computer, so its been in the works for what seems like forever. Its called Pink Lemonade and I hope you like it.

Thank you to those who answered my poll. Its given me heart that maybe I could help out with the family coffers .... which would be awesome at the moment let me tell you.

So onto the kit ... as usual a taggers scrap. I have uploaded it in two parts to help out those on dial up.

A little Poll for you

Pin It Hi Blog Fans
I have been blown away by the number of people downloading my simple little tag kits. Not to mention thrilled with all the comments. Thank you all very much for the support.
I have a poll for you ..... basically I would like to know if you would buy my kits for around a $1US. I recently had to give up work due to illness and I have been wondering if I could help the family coffers a little bit with my kits. I would still do freebies too of course :)
Anyway let me know what you think .... I'd really appreciate the feedback.

An Answer to some Questions

Pin It Hi Folks

I've had a couple of people ask what I mean by 'suitable for tagging' in my kits. It means that they are sized much smaller than normal digital scrap kits, which are sized to be printed out at 12 inches x 12 inches.

My kits are for use in 'tags' like the one below which I made with the EarthRose kit.

As tags are generally displayed online, the resoloution of my kits is only at 72dpi. Papers are generally only 600 x 600 pixels, and elements sized to suit.

I guess if you wanted they could be printed, but you are not going to get the kind of resolution you would with the scrapbooking specific kits you generally download.

Hope this helps
