FINALLY!!! 1st FREEBIE of 2019!

Hmmm...I haven't done a very good job so far of handing out holiday themed freebies yet this year already having missed Valentine's Day and Family Day. I tried sooooooo hard to get this one uploaded last night in honour of St. Patrick's Day before heading off the computer but alas it wasn't meant to be.

However, in my defence, I have been fighting two back to back viruses roughly the last five weeks which of course has put me behind in everything again. Just to let you know, I have actually started a love themed paper which I'll post as soon as it is done. Thankfully, love is in fashion all year around too. However, before I get any further behind it is time for a St. Patrick's Day themed paper…or well a belated St. Patrick's Day one.

Wether you are Irish or simply Irish at heart, here is a new St. Patrick's Day themed freebie for you. Thankfully, it also shares some spring colours so it can be useful for any number of springtime projects.

Hope you like it!

This digital paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: Rhonda Tonkinson (Eyeinspire) and Elif Sahin, Pixel Scrapper. To grab it, click the download button to be taken to a download location. In the zip folder you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

Now it is time for me to get back to work on my newest Christmas mini kit for April's 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Until next time,

Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #156…Babies, Babies, Babies

Hello there everyone! I'm back here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #156, the theme is Babies, Babies, Babies. Spring is in the air and with that the mind goes to thoughts of birth and rebirth so it is the perfect time to make a card for a baby in your life or in anticipation of one to come!

General Project Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date. 


Digital Images Details:

Digital Embellishments:
  • The duckie pin and the baby feet (recoloured) are from Raye's Design.
  • The frame, along with the word art for 'baby' and also for 'boy', was designed by Melo Vrijhof, Pixel Scrapper.

Digital Paper Details:


Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • The 'beautiful boy' sentiment used on the top is a freebie created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome vintage items for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.
  • The 'happy first birthday' sentiment is one I created for the purposes of this card.

Digital Paper Details:

Digital Paper Products:
  • The duckie paper used for the background is from Raye's Design.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  • I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the image and sentiment.
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
