I'm having one of those days...

I really want to do something special to round out not only the December kit, but also to kick off New Years... and I'm just not "getting it." My flow of creativity seems to have come to a screeching halt on this kit for some reason.

I'll keep plugging away at it, but if I'm not satisfied with my results, I won't be posting a freebie today. However, starting in the next few days, I'll be starting a brand new kit - what it is will stay a surprise for now, though!

So have a very Happy New Year, and I hope that 2010 will be a wonderful year for you!

Merry Christmas!

It's been a very busy week, what with trying to get ready for the holiday, and having this wretched head/chest cold... I've advanced to the coughing/laryngitis stage... fun... NOT! I'm sorry that I didn't have a chance to post this earlier in the day, but family first as they say. :-)

So here it is, without further ado... today's digital scrapbooking freebie from my Disney-inspired "Very Merry Christmas Kit"...


You can download the zipped PNG file from here. This retro-style title is approximately 11 inches by 2 inches. As usual, the shadows only appear on the sample image here on the blog; you can add a shadow to them if you want... or not! ;-)

We're going to be away from here for a few days... and I guess I won't kid myself this time - I probably won't be posting any freebies until early next week. However, I will be adding a few more pieces to the December kit, so don't worry! We're not done yet! ;-)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

And again... Merry Christmas!

If you've been at WDW this year for the Christmas season...

... then you might know where I got the inspiration for today's freebies! So, without further ado, here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


We kept seeing the absolutely huge Mickey wreath hanging on the Magic Kingdom side of the Contemporary Resort whenever we were travelling to and from that park... which was at least once a day! 8(:-D Well, I decided, what better freebie to give you for a Christmas kit than a similar Mickey wreath? And of course, I had to give you the lighted version, too! The real-deal was absolutely spectacular to see, especially when it was lit! I hope you can put these versions to good use on your pages!

You can download the files from here. I put both PNG files in one combined zipped file. As usual, the shadows only appear on the sample images here on the blog; you can add a shadow to them if you want... or not! ;-) Oh, and each version of the wreath is about 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall... give or take a bit! (You can downsize them, too, if you need to!)

Thanks, too, for being so understanding with my recent bout with my cold/flu/whatever it is... I wanted to get 2 sets of freebies up today, but with everything else on the go... this will probably be it (unless I get really inspired and throw one up really late tonight/early tomorrow... we'll see!)

Hmmm...

Maybe I shouldn't have said "throw one up" and talking about the flu in the same sentence... lol! (It's okay, I'm not sick in that way!)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

I hate the flu... or whatever I've got

It doesn't look good for me to get any freebies up at this point today, and I want to apologize for that. I've been (literally) in bed for most of the past 24 hours, trying to beat this thing into submission (who really enjoys being sick in the 1st place, but at Christmas!!!! That's just adding insult to injury!)

I'll see if I can post a couple of times tomorrow to make up for it; we have no obligations until evening, when we'll (hopefully!) be singing in the choir at our 11:00 service... Brian's got this bug, too, so keep your fingers crossed for both of us.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding! You guys (gals, mostly!) are great!

A couple of sweet Mickeys

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


One of the decorations we saw at the Magic Kingdom last week was some peppermint candies in the classic Mickey shape... so I figure why not make some freebies along that line! They're both about 2 inches square (give or take) and you can use them to embellish your Disney scrapbook pages however you like! 8(:-D

You can download the files from here. I put both PNG files in one combined zipped file. Also, the shadows only appear on the sample images here on the blog; you can add a shadow to them if you want... or not! ;-)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Two "Pop"ish Stars for you!

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


When I started working on today's freebies, I was instantly reminded of Disney's Pop Century Resort... and maybe the Contemporary Resort, too... both places are a little funky and retro in their design... as are these two freebies! (I just wish I could have been instantly transported back to Pop! LOL!) They're both about 2 inches square (give or take a smidge) and you can use them to embellish your Disney scrapbook pages however you see fit! 8(:-D

You can download the files from here. I put both PNG files in one combined zipped file. Also, the shadows only appear on the sample images here on the blog; you can add a shadow to them if you want... or not! ;-)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

Two alphas for you!

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:



I'm giving you two alphas today, one red-based, the other green, both with glittery edges to add that holiday sparkle and "pizazz" to your pages! ;-)

You can download the files from here. I put both 300-dpi PNG files in a combined zipped file and other than a very small shadow on the glitter layer, the shadows only appear on the sample images here on the blog; you can add a shadow to them if you want... or not! ;-)

A great big "Thank You!" to everyone for the recent glowing compliments! I truly appreciate all of your kind words; they really do give me a lot of inspiration to keep plugging away at these freebies! Again, THANK YOU! 8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

A tag for both coasts!

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


I decided that I should include something for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland (especially since it all started there!) So I figured I'd give you a couple of tags with both parks included... a great way to easily journal whichever location you happen to be scrapping! 8(:-D

You can download the files from here. I put both PNG files in a combined zipped file and the shadows only appear on the sample image here on the blog; you can add whatever shadows (or not) as you want!

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Time for some really "sweet" freebies! ;-)

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


While we were down at WDW last week, I kept a "lookout" for ideas that I might want to include with this kit. One common element that seemed to be popping up here and there were candy canes... so I just couldn't resist throwing in a few for you here! (I also wanted to add a little "Disney-inspiration" to them, so I threw in the holly/berries from a few weeks ago on the double "heart" candy canes!)

You can download the files from here. I went ahead and put them in a combined zipped file since none of the three of them were extremely large files to begin with. And, the shadows only appear on the sample image here on the blog; the only shadows on the PNG files themselves are on the heart canes, and just to add dimension and depth between the holly and the two canes; you can add whatever shadows (or not) as you deem fit!)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

These freebies were a bit of a challenge!

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


I decided to really challenge myself today, and attacked the illusive creativity bug head-on by creating these two shiny Mickey-themed ornaments. Since I wanted to give you two freebies, I decided to make one without any writing on it, and the other with "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" in white "puffy" painted writing.

You can download the files from here. I put them in a combined zipped file since neither of them were extremely large files to begin with.

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Some seasonal mulberry papers for you!

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:



These are two seasonal-colored mulberry style papers, both 12x12 inches and 300 dpi.

You can download the files from here and here. I put them in separate zip files due to their combined size.

Also, thanks so very much for your patience while I was down at WDW! I'm slowly getting back to the swing of things... next thing you know, it's going to be Christmas! 8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

The passing of Roy E. Disney

I'll be posting my freebies later today (the upload is going very slowly for some reason) but I just had to voice my sadness at the passing today of Roy E. Disney, the son of Roy O. and nephew of Walt.

I'm so very sad over this news; the only real consolation I feel right now is that this didn't happen while we were down at WDW last week - I don't know if I could handle being there during this time, and I have Roy's family as well as all of the Disney Castmembers around the world in my thoughts and prayers right now... they truly are one huge family, and this news must be next to unbearable for them, as well.

One thing I am very grateful for... nearly six years ago, (through a mutual friend) I sent Roy a "digital watercolor" print I had created of his father's statue (the one where Roy's sitting on the bench with Minnie, normally seen at the base of Main Street, USA...) Well, several weeks later, I received a thank you letter from Roy, and it's among my most prized possessions now. I had a copy of the print and the letter and envelope professionally framed, and the message he wrote has served as an inspiration for me many times during the past five plus years.

I never got to meet him (one of my deep regrets) but I will always feel a connection to him through knowing how much he appreciated my artwork - and I will always appreciate the love he had for both the Disney company and the entire Disney family, Castmembers and actual family alike.

Finally! Back home and back with the Freebies!

What is it they say about hindsight? Yeah, it's 20/20... and in hindsight, I really should have realized that I wasn't going to be successful at uploading (or working on) my freebies while down at WDW last week. Sigh... seems like we were out the door of our room at Pop at the crack of dawn, and didn't return until nearly (or after, even!) midnight the entire week! That's one good thing about having a tween and a teen now - they don't tend to wear out as early as they used to! LOL!

Well, as I promised last week, I'm going to get caught up with these freebies by giving you 2 each day... maybe I'll just continue it for the whole month at this point! (I'm still recovering from the week @ WDW plus the drives down and back, so it may be a couple days until I get my designing "mojo" back!)

Here are today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebies from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


These two glittered Mickey head ornaments are companion pieces to the red one I uploaded earlier... I hope you like them!

You can download the files from here. I've put both files into one zipped file; neither ornament has shadows applied; just the samples here on my blog.

Thanks so very much for your patience while I was away! 8(:-D

(So what's the worst thing about coming home from WDW for us? The change in temperature! It was in the 80s on Sunday when we started back home... and right now, it's only 21 here in Indiana! Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

As I promised yesterday... here's 2 Freebies for you!

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download (and you get 2 since I didn't upload one yesterday!):



It looks like I'm starting a bit of a theme here... I've got 2 "funky stars" pieces for you; one is a 12x12, 300 dpi paper, and the other is a felted Mickey head in the same pattern.

You can download the files from here. I've put both files into one zipped file; the felted Mickey head does not have any shadows applied to it; just the sample on here on my blog.

I have a feeling that I'll be uploading files on and off here... We'll have internet access for most of the time, but I really hate to pay for it every day when we're hardly going to be in the room! So, if I do miss a day, I'll get you caught up, don't worry! :-D

Thanks so very much for your patience and comments! 8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

8(:-D

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Just a note today... 2 freebies will come tomorrow!

I wanted to let you know that I won't be posting a freebie today, but I will have a couple to put up for you tomorrow. It's been a long day on the road, and I just now remembered I didn't put anything up! (I swear my brain is fried this week from lack of sleep or just the chaotic schedule I've been keeping!)

We have another road-trip day tomorrow, but it will be easier to do some work on my netbook at that time (today it just wasn't going to happen...) and I'll upload a couple freebies for you once we get to Pop!

Thanks for your patience! 8(:-D

Until then, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Here's a Snowflake Tag for you!

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


It's a little Mickey-Snowflake felted "gift tag" embellishment that you can use on all of those Disney-gift-opening photo layouts from Christmas morning! ;-)

You can download the file from here. It's a 300-dpi PNG file and it does not have any shadows applied to the image.

Just a "heads up" message now... we will be travelling and down at WDW for the next week-and-a-bit... so I have no idea how often I will be posting my freebies. I plan on posting daily, but given that my "plans" often seem to go awry... well... if I don't have a freebie posted one day, I'll probably give you two the next! Sound fair?

Thanks so much for hanging in there with me! (I've never tried to keep up with my freebies and be away from home! Yeah, I'm nervous! LOL!)

8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Haul out the Holly... 8(:-D

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


I made this little Mickey-berried Holly sprig as an add-on to our Very Merry Christmas Party t-shirts that we'll be wearing next week at the Magic Kingdom, so I thought I'd share it with you, too! 8(:-D

You can download the file from here. It's a 300-dpi PNG file (it's supposed to look like it's made out of felt) that's about 3.5 x 5 inches, and it does not have any shadows applied to the image.

My, oh, my... there just aren't enough hours in the day! I have *SO* much to do before we leave on Saturday!!! (Proverbial chicken time!)

8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Very Merry Christmas Kit", ready for download:


You can download this title from here. It's a 300-dpi PNG file, not shadowed, and I think you're really going to get a kick out of it and the other freebies that I'll be posting this month! I'm really excited about it (December is one of my all-time-favorite months of the year!) even though it's going to be a hectic month for me. We're actually going to be going down to WDW next week (I'm still packing... and panicking, LOL!) so my freebies may be coming to you at all hours... even worse than usual, LOL! Well, that's what happens when you're down at WDW... the time gets away from you! (That's why I'm doing my best to work ahead on some of these freebies!)

And a huge THANK YOU for all of the oh-so-wonderful comments this week! I'm so very, VERY thankful for all of you, and your comments really do lift my spirits so many times! Thank You! 8(:-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

The final "Pretty as a Princess" freebie...

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit", ready for download:



I decided to end this month's freebie kit with this "blingy" title for you... summing up the whole Princess theme!

You can download this title from here. It's a 300-dpi PNG file, not shadowed, and I hope you've enjoyed all of the Princess freebies this month. I will probably work up some Prince-ly items for sometime early in the new year (especially for those of you without any Princesses in your households!) I also plan to "flesh out" all of these recent kits, and begin to offer full-size kits on my Etsy page... but it's going to take awhile until I get to that point, so you have something to look forward to in the New Year!

Tomorrow is the 1st of December... almost impossible to believe! And to celebrate the spirit of the season... I'm starting a brand-new batch of freebies for you for the entire month of December, all with a Disney-inspired Christmas/Winter Holidays theme!

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

You can download this title from here. It's a 300-dpi PNG file, not shadowed, and I hope you like it for, perhaps, some Evil Queen pages you might have - or will be working on in the future!

It's a 300-dpi PNG file, measuring approximately 12 inches tall by 5 inches wide, and I think you'll like adding it to any of your Ariel pages. :-) I made it a little large so you can shrink it if you'd like, or use it full size, too.

Thanks again for all of your wonderful comments and thanks! I really do appreciate all of your feedback! :-)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

Final Sleeping Beauty Freebie

Here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today; the last item in this week's Sleeping Beauty portion of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit" - a glittered vellum crown embellishment!


You can download today's file here; you'll get a 300-dpi PNG file that's approximately 2.5 inches in both directions... and there's a slight transparency to the vellum, so you'll see through it to whatever you layer it onto!

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember...

Sleeping Beauty bottlecap!

Yes, today's Disney-inspired digital scrapping freebie is a Sleeping Beauty inspired bottlecap that is part of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit."


You can download the zipped 300-dpi PNG file from here; I hope you like it!

I've had a lot of fun designing this kit so far... I'll be honest, tho... it has been a bit of a challenge, because I've never (ever!) been what I'd call a "girly-girl" - LOL! (I was definitely a Tomboy growing up... I more often played with cars and boy "stuff" with my older brother than Barbies or girl toys with my older sister! I really had to get in touch with my feminine side with this kit!!!)

I hope it's meeting your expectations! :-)

Until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

A couple of Sleeping Beauty brads

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit." It's a couple of shiny brads with Sleeping Beauty's spinning wheel all glittered up!


You can download the 2 zipped PNG files (both are contained in one handy zipped file) from here; you'll get two separate, unshadowed files that you can use to embellish your scrapbook pages!

I'll have another week of Princess items... I'm not sure if I'll add on another Princess, or if I'll just throw in some Princess-neutral (is there such a thing? LOL!) items... just depends on where the ol' inspiration bug takes me, I suppose! ;-)

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Another Sleeping Beauty background paper

Today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie is another background paper from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit."


You can download the zipped file from here and you'll get a 12x12, 300-dpi file that coordinates with the Sleeping Beauty portion of the kit.

It took me a couple of tries to figure out something to upload for today... sometimes inspiration hits, other times I have to hit it, apparently! LOL!

Today's posting is going to be a bit brief... it's been "one of those days" here in Indiana... grey... rainy... dreary... ugh! ;-)

So until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Here's a Sleeping Beauty paperclip!

You can download the zipped PNG file from here and you'll get a full-size, non-shadowed paperclip (the sample shown above has the shadow applied just for illustration purposes.)

Thanks again for all your wonderful comments! I really do appreciate all of your feedback! :-)

So until tomorrow... remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Here's a Sleeping Beauty paper for you!

Here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today, part of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit" - a Sleeping Beauty-inspired paper!

Shown below are samples of both the full sheet as well as a zoomed-in detail of it.



You can download the zipped 12x12, 300-dpi image file here.

I had a real treat today (which is why this freebie is late-ish today); my mother came and picked up myself and my two daughters, and we drove over to South Bend to visit with my mother's aunt (my great-aunt and my daughters' great-great aunt... that's pretty great!) ;-) Well, my aunt (it's easier that way, LOL!) is 102 years old (young!) and in wonderful shape. She still does a lot of walking and has a small apartment in an assisted-living community... not bad for someone who was born before electricity was common! She can still hear extremely well, and has a wonderful sense of humor and awareness - simply amazing! I only hope that if I live even close to 100 years, that I have the same strengths!

That's it for today; thanks for your patience in the lateness (I completely forgot we were going to visit my aunt!) and until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

That's right, it's Sleeping Beauty! So here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit", a Sleeping Beauty title for your layout pages! You can download the zipped PNG file here, and you'll receive a 300-dpi image file that does not have any shadows applied to it (only on the image you see above.)

I must thank everyone for all of their wonderful comments of late; I'm so happy that you're enjoying my freebies - it brings me a lot of joy and artistic satisfaction to read your oh-so-kind words! Thank you!

And thank you for your patience today... Sunday's always seem to be a late day for me to post, probably because we're so busy with church and family activities... I hope that's not a burden for all of you! (I guess, just plan on making your visit later in the day?) ;-)

That's it for now... thank you again, and remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

A Couple of Cinderella Knotted Ribbon freebies

Here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today... a couple of Cinderella-inspired knotted ribbons!


You can download the two zipped PNG files from here; after you unzip the file, you'll have 2 separate PNG files that are not shadowed (the shadowing up above is only for illustrative purposes, of course!) :-)

Theoretically, today's the last day of the Cinderella portion of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit"... tomorrow I'll be adding another princess to the group, but since November doesn't end on a Saturday, I might be adding a few extra personalized princess items then... so you never know who might pop up! :-)

Until tomorrow... remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Another Cinderella paper!

Thank you, so much, for being patient with me today! Why is it that whenever you plan to be back home by a certain time, other "stuff" happens that slows you down????

Anyway, here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for you... it's another paper from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit" - this time, tho, the Cinderella-inspired paper is in the pink range... I think it will accent the other items in this part of the kit quite nicely (at least I hope you think so, too!) :-)


You can download the zipped 12x12, 300-dpi file from here; you can see an enlarged sample of the paper up above there.

Thanks again for your patience, and I do apologize for the lateness today! I shouldn't have this much trouble again tomorrow... hopefully!!!

So until then, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Freebie is coming, but a little delayed today.

Just an fyi... I will definitely be posting a Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for you today, but I have to run some errands that popped up. So... keep an eye out, and later today (hopefully not later than 7:00 pm Eastern) I'll have the freebie up and running.

Thanks for your patience, and wonderful words! 8(:-D

Get "Carried Away" with this Cinderella Freebie! ;-)

Here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today! I just couldn't resist going back to the pumpkin from my "Not So Scary Halloween Kit" and revising it for Cinderella! :-D


You can download the zipped PNG file from here and you'll get a 300 dpi image file that's about 4 inches tall by around 5 inches wide... large enough to be a major element on your Cinderella layout, but if it's too large, you can easily shrink it to fit your space! And just a word of "warning"... like the glass slipper, this image does have some transparency in the white area, so you might not want to shadow it. Just an "fyi." ;-)

I will admit... I had a great time working on this piece today, and it didn't even end up being exactly what I had in mind originally... it just sort of took on a life of its own, LOL! (I hope in a good way, of course!) ;-)

Now, how do I follow this up tomorrow????? Egads, it's going to be difficult! Well, you'll just have to drop in sometime tomorrow and see... maybe it will just be a background paper... I think I need to give you something "Cinderella-ish" yet not blue, so you have a good contrast to some of my latest freebies. (Yeah, that's probably what I'll do...)

So, until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Thanks Vickie!

I've been remiss in posting this, and I'm going to rectify that right now! Vickie S. emailed me this a few weeks ago, and I neglected to post it immediately - sorry, Vickie! (It's such a cute layout, and I'm extremely jealous that you got to visit Disneyland during Halloween!!!) ;-)

Here's her layout, and she used a few of the items from my "Not So Scary Halloween Kit" as you can see!


I'll be posting today's freebie in a short while... I have to create it first! ;-) (Don't worry, I know what I'm going to do today... I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet!

So, until later today, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

(and thanks again, Vickie!)

Here's a little Cinderella title for you!

My Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for you today is a Cinderella Title, all "bling-ed" out, from my "Pretty as a Princess Kit!"


You can download the zipped PNG file from here. The image you'll be downloading won't be shadowed... just the sample image shown above is shadowed.

Thanks so very much for all of your comments! I really appreciate the feedback, even if I don't personally acknowledge each one individually... please know that I do read each and every one!

That's it for today, so remember:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

If the shoe - or slipper - fits...

... it makes you a Princess! ;-)

Here's today's Cinderella freebie offering from my Disney-inspired digital scrapbooking "Pretty as a Princess Kit." It's a semi-transparent glass slipper, complete with blue sparkling "Fairy Godmother" pixie dust!


You can download the approximately 2 inches square zipped PNG file from here: please note that today I did not include a shadow on the preview; and you might not want to shadow it yourself. Reason being, when the shadow is applied, it "greys out" the slipper and really dulls the appearance. Now, all that being said... don't not do it just because I said so... you can always try it and see if you like it (I might be wrong, after all!) That's the wonderful thing about digital scrapbooking... there are no wrong methods... and you can always undo! ;-)

I hope you like today's freebie... if you do, I might try this technique again!

Until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

A fancy schmancy Cinderella paper!

Here's today's Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for you... a Cinderella-inspired paper from my continuing "Pretty as a Princess Kit"! (The samples below are of a full preview, as well as a detailed preview... so you can see a little better what the repeating pattern is!)


You can download the zipped 12x12 inch, 300 dpi file here. I hope you enjoy it!

That's it for today; I'm going to spend a little time tonight working on tomorrow's freebie... it might take me awhile to get what's in my head down on "paper" (so to speak!) So I guess I'm keeping this "short and sweet" today! ;-)

Until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

The start of a Cinderella week...

I decided to upload a Disney-inspired digital scrapbooking freebie that I started playing around with today... and I hope you think it works for Cinderella as much as I do. :-) (It starts the Cinderella portion of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit" by the way!) ;-)


You can download the zipped PNG file from here; the glittered cross "doo-dad" is just about an inch in height/width, and the file is not shadowed (just the sample shown above.)

I'm going to be experimenting with combining the results from several digital art programs in the next short while... I really like to keep expanding my knowledge, and I find I become "stagnant" if I don't push myself once in awhile... and I think you folks will be benefiting as well! :-D

That's it for today... until tomorrow, remember...

Buttoning up the Snow White portion...

Here's the last of seven Disney-inspired digital scrapbooking freebies for the Snow White portion of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit" this month...


A Snow White's Apple button! You can download the zipped PNG file from here, and you'll receive a button that's just a little under 1-inch in diameter... you can always shrink it just a little bit on your page if you find it's a little large for your preferences. :-)

Tomorrow I'll start uploading another batch of items for another Disney Princess... so until then, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

A couple of apple brads freebies...

... that go with the Snow White portion of my Disney-inspired digital scrapbooking "Pretty as a Princess Kit."
You can download the freebie files from here; you'll receive a zipped file that contains 2 individual PNG files, approximately 1 inch in diameter. The shadows will not be on the files - just the sample shown above.

Hope my upload isn't too late today - I got involved with something and completely lost track of time! (Oops!)

Until tomorrow... remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

Am I blue? Not really, but this paper is! ;-)

Here's your Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie for today... another Snow White inspired paper from my ongoing "Pretty as a Princess Kit." :-)



You can download a zipped 300-dpi image file from here. I decided to make these three papers identical other than the colors, so that you can easily mix and match them however you'd like on your page. Since I'll be concentrating on one Disney princess per week of this month, you won't be getting a lot of different items for each princess, but I'm trying to give you a little variety. :-) (What I do like about creating this kit in this manner is that I can always add to it whenever the inspiration bug hits me... and you'll all definitely benefit from that!) ;-)

That's it for today... tomorrow and Saturday will be the final Snow White days... not sure what Princess will be appearing on Sunday yet!

So until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"

You hear warnings about yellow snow, but...

... I think you'll like this yellow Snow paper! ;-) Yes, here's another Disney-inspired digital scrapbook freebie paper for you... and it coordinates with the Snow White portion of my "Pretty as a Princess Kit!"


You can download the zipped 300-dpi image file here; it's basically the same pattern as yesterday's red paper, but with a yellow that coordinates with Snow White's dress. I'll be uploading another paper tomorrow - a blue one - that will finish off the papers for this portion of the kit. (I will be including four princesses in this kit, one per week of November, with 2 extra days at the end to throw a few "extra" things in.)

Thanks for all of your comments, too! I don't always respond to the comments in each post, but I do read every one and do so greatly appreciate everything you have to say! :-)

So until tomorrow, remember...

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible!"
