Vintage Beauty - FREEBIE Cluster from Arlene

I just LOVE the elegant beauty of this kit - it's almost like I'm so "careful" using it - just as I would be holding the actual items in an antique store.  My grandmother always had the scent of flowers when I gave her hugs; this reminds me so much of her; delicate, beautiful, very feminine, and yet very vibrant. 

Arlene sure has captured that feel in her lovely clusters - here's another one she made to share with you.  Click on preview for download link .. and THANK YOU ARLENE!

Arlene's new AUTUMN BIRDS Paper Kit and FREEBIE!

What a treat!  Two new releases from Arlene to show you!  First those beautiful Autumn frames and clusters, and now this gorgeous backgrounds kit.  WOW!  I absolutely love the soft yet vibrant colors and the life brought to each paper with the assortment of birds.  I swear I can hear them singing ... or maybe I just left the window open?  They are gorgous - take a look ...

What a beautiful way to showcase your photos or correspondence papers!  These nine originally designed, one-of-a-kind backgrounds are all 12"x12" in 300 dpi resolution for superb printing results.

As always, Arlene has provided a beautiful cluster that would look spectacular paired with any of these papers - THANK YOU ARLENE!

Have a GREAT WEEKEND!  Thanks for visiting 


Arlene has come up with an absolutely GORGEOUS kit of 10 clusters and frames - take a peek!  What a great way to get a quick start on your Autumn scrapbooks, or even some recipe cards, personal greeting cards, or whatever you'd like to dress up a little bit for the season.  With the general Autumn theme, they can be used just about anywhere.  LOVELY JOB, ARLENE!

And, as usual, Arlene has been so generous and included a bonus Frame Cluster for FREE - just click on the preview below for download link.

Happy Friday! FREE Little Prince Clusters!

Hello strangers!  To clarify - YOU aren't strange ... I have been lately!  I don't know why I haven't gotten around to posting more freebies yet, I guess I have Fall Fever and want to spend too much time outdoors in this beautiful weather.  I've been busy taking more photos to use for some Autumn-themed kits as you'll see in a few days - fun stuff.

Until then, Arlene has so generously donated a few more of her beautiful clusters from the Little Prince kit, which was this month's FREE kit prize at the Photo Potluck challenge at the forum.  There will be another FREE kit (and mini kit) given away in October at this challenge - check out the details on SATURDAY at the Forum (click link in header or click HERE).

Camping FREEBIES anyone?

Hello, and Happy Monday!  It's a beautiful day in THIS neighborhood - about as perfect as a day can be.  Off work today, I had a chance to clean house in my house as well as on my computer.  We're also having freshly picked carrots and tomatoes for supper along with a turkey ... you're welcome to some if you make it here in time.  My lovely daughter Melany came to visit for a few hours too, which made the day even better.

Speaking of "cleaning house," I found some more freebies that I forgot I had made, and there's a little one from the Lakeside Camp collection that I thought I'd share.  Many times I don't go back and use the kits I've made previously, I'm too busy concentrating on what the next one will be.  This one was really fun to see again, and it sure makes me want to get busy scrapping my own pictures!  We have lots of camping and outdoors ones from when I was younger that I'd love to get done with this kit!  Well, enough blabbering for now, I'll just sit back and enjoy the smell of turkey cooking along with the fresh air blowing in the windows!  Have a great evening!

New Kit - Vintage Beauty - and FREEBIE CLUSTER!

Happy Friday - or Saturday as the case may be for you.  I have been a bit scarce on the blog lately, which has resulted in two good things; first, I have a whole load of freebies to give away; and second, I was able to get a new kit finished!  Yippee!  I even had some time to do a little scrapping with it to try it out, and I sure enjoyed it.  There are many pictures of my grandparents when they were young that I have wanted to put in a scrapbook for ages, but just haven't found the right kit, so I made one.  This kit is a little more on the feminine side; the more masculine one will be a little later this year.  Here are a few pages that I did up of my grandparents and my parents from a "few" years ago ...

This next one I just can't decide which pictures to use yet!

 The whole kit contains 21 custom designed, one-of-a-kind papers that you won't find in any other kit except the Somewhere in Time Blog Train mini kit I added to this.  There are 160 elements, so there's something to suit just about any vintage scrapping need!

Remember - most items in the store are still at 40% off - you can get this whole kit for only $1.80!

I made the layouts into some quickpages and two clusters that are for sale separately at the store - get them quick while the 40% off sale is still on!

Here's a little frame cluster for your patience in reading this far!  THANK YOU for visiting, and have a great weekend - I hope you can get outside and enjoy some beautiful Autumn-like weather!

CU Halloween Freebie from Arlene - and NEW CU SET OF CLUSTERS!

Good morning!  I hope you're having a great Tuesday so far - it's just started in my part of the world, and it's just gloroius so far.  I love living on a farm - sometimes I just don't even want to go anywhere because it's so peaceful and beautiful here.  With Autumn on the way, the leaves are starting to change colors, there's a little bit of crispness in the air, the crops are anxious to be harvested, and one of my favorite farm cats is .... pregnant again.  NOT good timing for this little mama!  From the looks of things, we should see some little kitties again in a few weeks.  I have a feeling that they'll be living in Larry's heated shop for a while this year ... Minnesota winters are a little too cold for babies outside!

With Autumn quickly approaching what little one isn't aware that Halloween is also on the horizon?  My lovely friend Arlene is thinking ahead and has a very timely treat for you - a free CU Halloween cluster!  This is from one of her new CU kits that are available in the store, which I'm sure you'll love!  It's not easy to find such beautiful elements available for commercial use at such a reasonable price - she's building an impressive stock of lovely items ... be sure to check them out HERE.

Here are a few previews of her new CU kits ...

Arlene was kind enough to share an EXTRA from each kit to give to you as a freebie this week - we'll feature one each day.  The first is from the lovely Autumn Basket Collection ... gorgeous!  Click on image for download link.

Thank you Arlene!
