Winterberry and Christmas Card Freebies December 11, 2010

Filed under: CT Shout Outs,Freebie - Quick Page — Christie @ 6:23 am
Jensen Motley Crew has a new kit out, Winterberry.  It’s not your typical winter-y kit: It has some rich colors in it and some different elements than you typically don’t find in a kit for this time of year.  A nice change of pace!

The holly paper – one of my favorites – actually reminds me of my great-grandmother.  I have this vague recollection of a set of Christmas dishes with these little tiny holly berries on it, and I think they belonged to her.  Whenever I see holly berries, I think of her.  It’s funny, though, how fuzzy our memories become with time – which is why I really want to scrapbook some of my memories and things that happen before I forget them – and also why I’m a big journaler. 

Here’s a peek at the kit. 

Winterberry by Jensen Motley Crew Designs, available at Stuff to Scrap

 Here are a couple cards I made using the Winterberry kit.  Hope you can use them for the holiday season!

Cute family not included in card quickpage. 😉 I’m afraid you’ll have to add your own pictures and message. 🙂
Another card option….

To download PNG files of the cards, go here.  (Click on the individual cards that you want to download.  You will see a download button in the upper left corner.  Oh, and ignore the funky extraneous designs in the download preview; I checked them and they shouldn’t be in the actual downloads.  I think it’s a problem with the preview when the size is reduced.)

I’m quite new at this whole quickpage thing, so feel free to leave me a comment if you download and let me know how I can improve. 

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!


Christmas Layouts December 7, 2010

I’ve been catching up on layouts of Christmases past….

This is from Christmas last year.

Kit used is Jingle Jangle by Jensen Motley Crew Designs.

I used Jensen Motley Crew Designs’ kit Jingle Jangle, which is part of Stuff to Scrap’s Build a Kit (which basically means you can get several different mini kits and they’ll all coordinate with each other).  I really like the colors in this kit, and the papers are quite cute!  🙂

And the year before….

Another fun kit from Miss Kim Designs:

And some snow pictures.  🙂

Using Frosty the Snowman by Nibbles Skribbles

Okay, why did I think I had gotten a lot more pages done than that?!  Apparently I’m not as accomplished as I thought I was!


Blog Train: Frosty the Snowman Freebie December 6, 2010

Filed under: Freebie - Quick Page,Uncategorized — Christie @ 2:27 pm

The Studio is having a Christmas carol blog train hop, and Nibbles Skribbles, the designer for whom I guest CT’d during October and November made a cute snowman mini kit.  You can head to her blog and get it for free until December 12.

Cute, huh? Click on the image to head to Nibbles Skribbles' blog to download.

I also made a quickpage using her kit, which you can download by clicking here.  (The download button will be in the upper left hand corner of the page.)

Insert your own photos, add your own journaling, and voila! Page finished.

Happy scrapping!
