Friday Freebie and FPD Grand Opening!

I am releasing my new kit Christmas at Funky Playground Designs today and am having a massive sale to mark my grand opening! I've got 30% off everything in my shop - eeekkk!! But it's only for a limited time, so you'd better be quick if you want to bump up your stash with my goodies.

*** Keep in mind New York is a few hours behind Aussie time so if the shop doors have not opened - it's because of a slight time difference.

Here's a couple of layouts from me. I have made these into quick pages that are also available at the shop.

And now for my freebie - I've included one paper and one element from the above kit, and some extras that I left out of the pack. Hope you enjoy playing with them. Make sure to leave me some love and if you're keen, send me a link to your layouts. I'll be doing a Creative Team call soon and am looking for talented digital and hybrid scrappers to join my team - show me what you got ;)

This add-on freebie kit will only be available until my next freebie goes live - so about a week. So you'd better grab it quick!!  

I am leaving last week's freebie mini kit up for a little while longer because there was a glitch in the download folder and some people did not get the little birdie. So check your files and come back if you need to :)

Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

Tuesday Tip: Blogging

My tip today is don't change something that's not broken!

I am disliking my new website design a lot, not least because the new format seems to squish and distort my images. The link colours are the same as the rest of the text, making them harder to spot. For my own organised satisfaction, I think I'm better off going back to a three-column layout.

So, expect a few more days of website maintenance in the near future. I just can't bring myself to do it straight away. I'm not a tech-head and it usually takes me sooooo long. And I always end up losing something in the switch. Bleh!

Friday Freebie Paper Pack for You!

Something a little different today. Instead of a template, I thought I might share some left-over papers that I have made that didn't fit into my kits.

All have been created as 12 x 12 inch 300dpi jpeg files. Try saying that in one mouthful! So basically, if you plan on printing out your 12 x 12 inch layouts (which is the standard scrapbooking industry page size) then these will look even more textured than they do up on screen.

If you haven't already, you really should try printing out your digital pages at a proper processor. While I haven't looked around for a 12 x 12 photo processor in Australia for a while, I know that Srapbook Pictures and Persnickety Prints (both American) have some pretty good deals, where a 12 x 12 page costs $1.99US. That's awfully cheap compared to here in Australia. The quality is superb. The paper textures just look so real that when people view my albums, they actually reach out to touch the pages to try to ascertain if that paper really is embossed, or bazzill, or whatever! It's so worth it. Screen images are mostly done at 72dpi. You lose a lot of the detail up on screen.

Anyway, here they are. Oh, and I added a little birdie for you too.

This freebie will expire in one week. After that, you can purchase it at my shops at Funky Playground Designs (opening 16 November) or Polka Dot Plum.

If you want more of this kit, go to my shop at PolkaDotPlum (click for link). It's currently on special - $US 4.19 - that's 30% off! For a limited time.

Some Layouts to Share

Here's what I've been doing lately - not much scrapping compared to previous months, but that will happen when you stop taking photos for a while!! The lack of photos actually means I've had to extend myself in terms of themes. Scrapping all those little ideas you never get around to. And I've been using some old scanned-in pics as well.

My Very First Store Sale!!!

Visit me here! My shop opens November 7 for Aussies. I made this banner with my new Tyler kit, which is available in the shop too.


iDSD blog train freebie!!!!

Well, it's the time of year when all digital scrappers go absolutely NUTS about buying up big - it's International Digital Scrapbooking Day on November 6, with most shops heavily discounting all their wares for the whole weekend!

You know how some ladies go gah-gah over shoe sales? Well, this day beats that. It's way more mega. We digi scrappers all go insane with games, online challenges and freebies.

My freebie quick page for you is made using the Mscraps November collaboration kit called Organic. It totally rocks!!! But you probably already know that if you've been following along with the blog hop!
So here you go!

This is my page for it.

You would have just come from Mscraps owner Joyce Paul's blog. Your next stop is talented designer Kathi, here. If you visit somebody's blog and it's not up yet, don't fret - it's just that we're co-ordinating this across the globe. The hop doesn't officially start until 4am Saturday Australian Eastern Standard Time. For a full list of blog participants (made up of Mscraps designers and Creative Team Members), visit the forum

Happy freebie shopping!

My Very Own Grand Shop Opening!!!!

The day is finally here!!!

I can tell you all what's got me sooooooooooooooo excited that I can't eat, sleep, think or snort without thinking of new scrappy ideas to implement!!!

You know how a few weeks back I said everything was all happening at once? Well, the time has come to reveal just what!

I am about to open up shop!

I have been accepted as a designer at Funky Playground Designs and Polka Dot Plum. Both are places that I’ve shopped at quite a bit previously, and I am so thrilled to become a part of all the action there! Do you know how fascinating and inspiring it is to be working alongside such fabulous designers and Creative Team Members? My mind just boggles!

So I’ve been doing a lot of creating behind the scenes and have come up with a few different kits to launch at each opening. And of course, I’ll also be selling my templates that have expired as freebies.

Now before you freebie lurkers start to panic, I’ll still be offering freebies each week – besides being a fantastic marketing and exposure tool for newbie designers, it also lets me give back to the industry that has rewarded me with so much. I just feel exceptionally lucky to have found a second career that I love doing and am soooooo passionate about!

You will be able to purchase my kits here at Polka Dot Plum from Sunday (November 7 AEST),  and here at Funky Playground Designs from November 16. My designer name is Brine Design.

So, now for an unveiling!

Tayla: A general Girl Kit

Buy it here from November 7!

And here's what the gorgeous PDP creative team has done with it already:

And because I'm so excited about this, I'm going to be giving this kit away to 3 people. All you have to do is leave a comment. For additional entries, you can blog about it yourself, Tweet about it or Facebook it (or all three if you are keen!!!) and come back here each time and provide me with the links in the comment section (so I can check it out). You have until Wednesday 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time to get your entries in. Easy, hey? I will announce the winners on my blog and email them with a store coupon to download my full kit. So make sure you check back - especially if you comment as "anonymous" (!!)

Now, I'd better get back to work on the rest of the kits! Not long to go now ....
I’ll be coming out with something new every two weeks. So thank you to all of you who are sharing my journey into another career, and I appreciate all your support and attention! Now. Go spread the word!!!
