Half Past Autumn, December’s mini kit

By on 7-05-2011 in Christmas Patterns, Vintage Patterns

Half Past Autumn … I love this way of describing the season change between autumn to winter. It is from a poem by Gordon Parks “But I do feel a little teeny right now that I’m just about ready to start, and winter is entering. Half past autumn has arrived.” This kit was created for The Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s December colour challenge with ADB Designs. I have also done a page using ADB Designs pretty little kit and another created with my kit. These photos are from a beautiful autumn day deep in the Ottawa valley.

Two seasonal and two beautiful overlays for creating your own papers and tags

By on 7-05-2011 in Christmas Patterns, Vintage Patterns

Pixel Scrapper has a designer call for words and fonts and since I will not have time to create new ones I am adding four pages that I have created earlier. One spring, one winter. Personal use only on all four overlays please.



Here are two more, one states “I am beautiful” and the other is all about the word ‘beautiful’. Grab all four and tuck the seasonal ones away for a few months.

I am beautiful

beautiful is

You could also transfer these to fabric and sew a pillow for a loved one’s room to remind them that they are beautiful. The winter snowflake page would be great printed on fabric and framed for your seasonal decoration.

This is my mini kit using the colour swatches from the ADBDesign’s kit. I have added lots of papers, two of which are scalloped and a sweet little angel. There is also a patchwork Scottie dog and little bird along with frames and scatters.
I have made two quick pages using my kit and one using ADBDesign’s kit.


This is the first of the quick pages from my kit. I love this little angel.

Old Fashioned Christmas scrapbook kit

By on 7-05-2011 in Christmas Patterns, Vintage Patterns

A Christmas gift for everybody. If you have boys this kit will help you put together your holiday pages. I have added lots of boys toys along with a doll and lots of little animals for boys and girls. There are also some adult elements so something for everybody to go with the seasonal photos. I have split both the papers and the first elements files and all are under 50MG so won’t take long to download. Personal use only for this free kit.

Welcome Sugar and Cookie for the Christmas season. They are sugar cookies with their own icing outfits. How will you dress your sugar cookies? Can you make more outfits for them? They would love an extra suit of clothes. Have fun this Christmas.

Sugar and Cookie Paper Dolls

Give Sugar and Cookie their own story to go with their outfits. Will Santa have them in his sack? Or will a little boy or girl have them out on a plate for Santa….I hope Santa doesn’t EAT them !!!!
