Simply Christmas "Basic" FREEBIE QP!

Hello again!  It seems like I'm slacking here - not enough freebies posted lately!  I've been having some fun - making cookies with the girls took up most of the day yesterday, which was SO fun - we got a lot of pics that you'll probably see some of in some of the upcoming layouts ... our Blog Train this month is devoted to Baking and Cooking memories ... sounds perfect!

I've had a bit going on with the Simply Christmas series of scrap kits also - Natasha (alohacowgirl) made up a couple of darling layouts ...

Poor baby ... I bet that frown turns into a smile soon!

Natasha also is sharing this as a QP for you - THANK YOU NATASHA!!!  You can click on the image for a direct download link.

Daily Download EXTRA Freebies!

* * Additional note:  the font used on the word art below for the word "SNOW" is called Kingsthings Christmas and is available for free at http://www.fontspace.com/kingthings/kingthings-christmas - take a look around their site, there are tons of great fonts for both personal and commercial use! * *

Hello!!!  I've missed posting for the past few days while I was finishing up some knitting projects .. well, more accurately working on some unfinished knitting projects.  It feels good to get a bit more caught up, but I missed the daily downloads - I guess I lead an awfully simple life!

I made a New Year's resolution a little bit early this year - I need to do some scrapbooking of my own pictures!  It's so easy to get caught up in making kits, etc. that my own pics are all still "naked" with no scrapping to adorn them.  SO, to alleviate this problem and guilty feeling, I decided that I will make at least TWO layouts of my own from each kit I make, including the ones I already have done.   They will be posted on the blog, just to make sure I keep up with this goal - you can nag me if I don't keep up!  :)

In starting this resolution, I made a page of the sweetest little girl I know - Grace.  Hopefully she'll be my "real" granddaughter someday (hint hint to my son!).  She and her mom Ashley are so easy to love!  They brighten so many of my days without even knowing it - they're WONDERFUL!  Ashley was kind enough to send me a couple of pics of Grace playing in the first snow we had this year back in November, and I just had to do something fun with them.  I also made a little word art to share - you'll find it at the bottom of this post.

Before we get to that, however, I'd love to thank JUDY S for her beautiful poinsettia cluster!  She sent this last week, and I'm woefully late posting it, and I apologize for that.  Judy has a ton of talent, and we appreciate her sharing her hard work with us - THANK YOU JUDY!  Here's the lovely cluster she made ... you can click on the image for a direct download link.

Here's a peek at my first page for my New Year's Resolution pages ...  Grace!

Thanks for stopping by - be sure to check for the new section of the Simply Christmas series - post to follow!  Have a GREAT DAY!

Another new friend, "Doodlebug" and her kids put together their memory verse cards with the kit - they were kind enough to send a sample of what they made.  Wonderful cards, kids (and Doodlebug of course)! I love all of the different styles that you made - something very unique on each one of them.  Creativity!!! Thanks for sharing!

I'm sorry for taking so long to get this next one posted also - it's gorgeous!  All the way from Japan too ... isn't the internet wonderful?  Yumiko W (Yummie) has been so sweet and shared this lovely page with us ... THANK YOU!  You can view her fun blog at  http://momam.blog76.fc2.com/ - lots of goodies!

NEW KIT - Simply Christmas and a FREEBIE for you!

HI!  Hope you’re doing well today.  It’s getting COLD here, and we’re expecting a little snow over the next few days – nothing we can complain about for December though.  I’m so happy to finally get to show you the new series of kits I’ve been working on for the Christmastime Holidays!  The series is a little different (wouldn’t be me if it wasn’t a little odd!).  It’s called Simply Christmas; there is a Basic Elements kit that includes a whole lot of basic scrapbooking elements; ribbons, bows, trim, flowers, ornaments, and on and on … 115 of them in fact!  These are all coordinated with the Basic Paper kit, which contains 33 Holiday and Winter-themed papers in all sorts of styles.  Both of these sets are sold separately so you can pick and choose what you want a little easier. 
After the Basic kits, I’ve added some specialty kits with a very distinctive theme; one for a Simply Traditional Christmas; Simply Rustic Christmas, Simply Elegant Christmas, and Simply Southwest Christmas.  The Traditional and Rustic kits are currently in the store, while the Elegant and Southwest kits are in the final phases of creation, with release next week.  ALL of the specialty kits have about 50 elements and contain 5 original design papers pertaining to that style.  The nicest thing is that all of the colors are coordinated with the Basic sets!  You can mix and match all you want!  The specialty kits are designed with an emphasis on the more original elements and not filled with the bows, ribbons etc. that are found in the Basic kit – they have “the good stuff” … hopefully you agree!
The pricing on these kits is a little bit higher than some of my past items, as these were really labor-intensive to put together.  The Basic Elements set is 2.50, the Basic Paper kit is 2.00, and each of the specialty kits is $2.00.  I LOVE to run sales, so for now you can catch ALL of them at 50% OFF IN THE STORE!
So … finally … here are the previews, and following the previews is a little freebie I made for you from a combination of the sets. If you didn’t get the special preview freebie, check this link to get to it. Thanks again to all of you for your wonderful comments and e-mails. I LOVE them! As always, if you would like to share a layout or QP made with any of the kits, I would be honored to post it on my blog!!! Just e-mail it to me at mslisa@frontiernet.net. Thank you SO MUCH!

 Simply Basic Christmas - Elements Set SALE: 1.25!

Simply Basic Christmas - Papers Set SALE: 1.00!

Simply Traditional Christmas Add-on Kit  SALE: 1.00!
