Only Time links

will be removed tonight... so if you haven't got those links yet... get to it, cos they're gonna be gone!

Part Two of "Cookin' Up A Storm"

Thank you so much to all those lovely people that left me a comment on my latest offering. It was so joyful to come online (we have had no decent Internet connection for a few days) and read all those great comments.... just made me smile!

Haven't done much in the last couple of days scrapping wise, but I did get Hubby to help redo my sewing room. Now I have my cutting table freed up to actually use.. It has meant not a lot of floor space in there, but you don't really need a huge corridor to move from one room to the next when you are sewing. It has been such a long time since I touched my sewing machine, I am really looking forward to being hit by the urge to sew, knowing that I can cut out and sew in the one room!

Enough chat... the real reason you are here :)

New weekly Challenge over at VDBC

Sharon from RSMobley Designs is hosting the Weekly Challenge over at Visual Designs By Chris Forum this week.

The Challenge is to use a digi-stamp on a card, layout or project. The winner will receive their choice of one of Sharon's files, but if you use one of Sharon's digital cutter files, you could be in the running to win a couple of her files.

Here is my submission. I used a cute little stamp from Bugaboo and some layers from an Interchangable Circles file that Sharon created for a previous challenge.



Thanks for looking!

New freebie series starts today!

Are you involved in a Recipe Swap or challenge at the moment? Perhaps you are scrapping pictures of cooking experiences. Or maybe you are finally creating that Recipe Card file that you have been putting off!

Whatever you're up too, I hope you can find a use for my latest offering.

This is a kit I designed to use for layouts and cards around a Cooking theme.


There are four parts to this kit and then I have an extra surprise for you ! So make sure you get all the parts.

Please come back and leave a comment if you download, I do read every single one, and it doesn't take long to say thanks!

Have a great day wherever you are!

Happy Birthday Card using RM00020

"RM00020 - I'd Rather Be Fishing" is a digital cutter file that Sharon designed to be cut out of vinyl. I have cut it out of black vinyl and it is now stuck on the window of our car! It just sums up my DH's mood :)

However, I also felt it was perfect for a male Birthday Card. I messed around in Photoshop and came up with this card front. I have used actions to create textures on the clouds and the water and I am pleased with the way it turned out. Now I have a ready made card I can just print out on cardstock and use!


Thanks for looking!

I have the last installment link for you for this kit today! I hope you have enjoyed these last few freebies!

Happy Anniversary Card

I just completed this card for my Parents Anniversary coming up soon (fortunately they don't read my Blog LOL)

I have used various textured and glitter cardstocks by DCWV and, for a touch of colour, a little red heart shaped button by Birch.


My feature though, is this gorgeous digital cutter file by Tina from Card-i-ology Creations. This was a freebie from Tina some time ago, but hopefully will be in her Store soon. In the meantime, check out her other fantastic files available!


Thanks for looking,
Have a great day wherever you are!

Next Freebie Installment

I hope you all had a great weekend. My son had a friend over and they discovered the dam on the property. Even though we have a swimming pool, they preferred swimming in the dam... boys hey! But they did discover lots of turtles which they enjoyed :)

They even camped on the edge of the dam Saturday night. I didn't sleep that well, I worry too much, but they had a ball! Even saw a kangaroo :)

Here is the third installment in the "Only Time" kit. I hope you have already got Part's One and Two, but if not, they will be still available until this evening!

Card using CD00577 - Spring Swirls

Chris has so many gorgeous files, it can be quite difficult to pick which one to work with next. I love Swirls though, so when browsing through my collection and I came across this little gem, I couldn't resist using it on a card with this cute little digistamp.



The Swirl on this card is one of two that come from a personal cutter file called Spring Swirls . I have added styles to the swirl including a texture and drop shadow. I like the way it looks as though the little mouse has just picked the flower off the swirl and is running off to present it to someone special!

Designed to show that personal cutter files can be used very successfully in your photo editing software.

The little mouse is a digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps and the digital kit is from Peppermint Creative.
Thanks for looking!

Just in time for Valentine's

Countdown to Happy Birthday

Hi, remember my "Countdown to Valentine's" project (scroll down to read post)? Well I continued to play around with the file and came up with this version. I have created a "Countdown to Happy Birthday" project. I designed the frame to be left open at the top so that you can change the photo to make the project usable for different children. Just slide out the old and in with the new.



The last page shows a birthday cake sticker for the Birthday Boy/Girl once the countdown has completed.


Link to download project in KNK format HERE . Please note this is a project for personal cutters only!


Please come back and leave a comment if you download.... these keep me designing free files for you and it just doesn't take that long to say "Thanks" !!
Have a great day wherever you are!
