Will be MIA until after Thanksgiving.

Hello all, sorry I haven't been around. We're getting ready to move to Michigan this week and that coupled with Thankgiving has got me BUSY! Sorry I haven't been around to give out any freebies. I'm sure you all understand.

I will be back the week after Thanksgiving with a new kit. It's almost finished and I would post it now but I'm packing up the computer today for the move and won't be unpacked until Monday or so. So, when I get back on you'll all have a new freebie! It's a cute Christmas theme, just in time for the holidays.

I hope everyone has a great Turkey Day. And those of you not in the U.S.A...have a great week!

Leaps-n-Bounds Elements

Hello all...it is 12:01am and technically it is tomorrow (or is that today?) so I guess I can post my elements to this kit. I hope you enjoy them. Like I said, a lot of them will work well for other things so please download and see what you can use.

I loved making this kit. I'm getting quicker at making things (found out some useful tricks) so I should be able to step it up once this move is over and done with. Until then I'm afraid I'll be hit or miss. Sorry.

Here are the elements.

You can download them HERE. I just added them to the paper folder that way you could download everything at once. :)

Leaps-n-Bounds kit

I was going to sit on this one for a while but decided to share with you all. I was inspired into doing this kit after I saw pictures in my niece in her first gymnastics classes. I thought, "hey, not too many of these kits out there". I know it excludes a lot of you but I just had to do it. The papers can be used for anything really. Especially the stars ones. You could use those for the 4th of July. And the elements, while they are geared toward gymnastics, there is a sheet that could be used for anything. So, check back to see if the elements are something you'd be interested in.

Here are the papers for now. And as always...please leave some love. xo

Julia M....my special helper this week.

THANK YOU JULIA! I finally got around to looking at that tutorial on how to make thread for my buttons and it was wonderful. I took the basic concept and applied it to PSP. THANK YOU! Unfortunately, I learned how to do this AFTER the last part of my kit came out. LOL. You were such a big help. Let's all give a hand to Julia M for helping me this week. And just for that, you get ALL my kits for FREE! How about that? :)

Here is the link she sent me for those out there that want to learn how to make thread for your buttons. YEA! http://www.scrapbook-bytes.com/a-tuts/publish/article_695.shtml

FINAL part to Babys First Year kit

Whew! It took me a while to get all these out and I thank all of you that have come back every day looking for each part. I'm not so sure I'll do this again, meaning I'll probably go back to the old way of doing it....papers one day...elements the next. LOL. It just took too long this time. (I'm sure you'll all agree.)

This weekend was busy. Mike got home on Friday night and then his employees here threw him a little going away party that night. It was fun and we got a lot of nice gifts. Then on Saturday it was a family day. Well, I took off for a couple hours because I had some things to do WITHOUT two children in tow. But the rest of the day was family day. Our Buckeyes finally lost so there is no hope at a National Championship game again this year. Boohoo. Oh well. Today (Sunday) we met with our second realtor and have now got to make a decision with who we'll list with. Then this week I have appraisers coming (hopefully) and then the kids and I can move out to Michigan to join up with Mike finally. We'll see. It all depends on how quickly we can get appraisers out here. With Thanksgiving next week (CAN IT BE?), things are up in the air. I just want to get out there already! That way we can start looking for houses more seriously. It's so hard to do online. You absolutely have to be there to see them. But, I will say things are going smoothly so far so I hope it continues.

Well, here is the final part of the kit. I hope you've enjoyed it. Not sure what my next kit will be but I'm open to suggestions. Anything you guys have had a hard time finding?

Have a great week.

OOPS! New link to Tags!

Sorry ladies. Some of you let me know that my tags were still in PSP format instead of PNG. Thank you. Guess I forgot to switch it. Here is the new link. For the 60 of you that downloaded it already, if you need the PNG link...here it is... HERE. I have also fixed the link below.

Part 5 of Baby's First Year

Okay, so there are actually 2 downloads here. One is a set of 8 tags with cute sayings and the other is more elements. I have 1 more element sheet for you tomorrow (with a ribbon wrapped frame and some ribbon and buttons) and I think that'll be complete. (We'll see...;)) Sorry this has been dragging on. I was still working on the kit when I started to post and then I just couldn't stop myself. LOL. I still want to do some things with it but I'll probably just provide an add-on later this month for it. So be sure to keep a look out for that.

Here are the previews. I hope you're enjoying this kit. xoxo It sure has been fun to make!

And here are the word tags...Not all of them are shown.

You can download the RicRac and Bows HERE and the Tags HERE.

How to make thread for buttons

Okay, for the LIFE of me, I can't figure out how to make thread for my buttons I create. Does anybody know how to do this in PSP? ARGGGGGG! I have buttons for this kit and they look unfinished without thread running through them. Can someone please steer me in the right way for a tut? Thanks!

Killer headache....Plus Part 4 of Baby's First Year

Okay, so I have a killer headache today. No real post from me but I will leave you with part 4 of the kit. I will have 3 more pages to go but I'll probably give you 2 more tomorrow with the last on Thursday.

Today is the alpha/numbers/characters. Tomorrow will be 2 pages of CUTE CUTE CUTE tags and the last day will be the last of the elements.

Here is the alpha preview:

New Kit! Baby's First Year

Okay, so I do like to scap kid things. :) Probably because that is my life right now...my two precious children. :) So, here are the papers to my newest kit. I have a TON of elements to follow. I couldn't stop myself once I got started. Today will just be the papers though.

Our move is creeping along. I don't have to do much (except keep the house clean and look for new homes online) so that's good. We're waiting for the relocation company to contact us and then the ball will start rolling. I'm hoping to be in MI by Dec 1st (in a furnished apartment) and into a new house by the first of the year. We'll see.

Oh, other big news...Sasha popped her 5th tooth and #6 is gonna pop in the next day or so. Also, she started crawling Oct. 31 (her 9 month birthday) and she's now pulling to standing some of the time. And her little feet are starting to pick up and put back down so I know I'm in a world of hurt in the next month or so. Just in time for the chaos that will go with moving. LOL. Such is life.

Anyway, here is the freebie. Remember to check back daily to get the other parts. There will be about 5 parts so don't miss any of them.

Tiled papers...any good tuts?

Hello all, sorry I've been MIA for a while. This move has got me busy and I don't have the energy at the end of the night to do ANYTHING. I am getting ready to start my new kit though and have a question.

I use PSPX and have NO IDEA how to tile an image to make a 12x12 paper. In other words, I have 1 graphic I want to use but don't know how to make it show up on the paper in rows/columns etc. Does anybody know how to do this or can you please point me in the direction of a good tut? I know it's probably pretty easy but for the life of me I can't figure it out. THANKS!
