Some new Christmas freebies

This weekend I wanted to try and get some family photos taken before Michael leaves for his latest deployment to order some Christmas cards. These are a few of the photos we got thanks to my sister and my mom's camera (I'm too cheap to buy a nice one). I'll post more later on hopefully with some more freebies if I can get some free time. Libby's sick and already puked on me twice today, poor girl.

Sadly I still can't post any photos of Libby but we got some really cute ones that I wish I could share with you guys :(  .  If you like what you see just click on the images below to enlarge then save to your computer and just slip your own photos below and erase any overhang in any photo editing software.  The images are 500 pixels wide.

Haven't posted in a while so here are lots of digital freebies

Here is a compilation of freebies that I have posted on my adoptafrica blog but didn't cross post here.

I recently attended a Christmas sale with lots of crafts, clothes, etc. and I saw a garland with the idea of writing the meaning behind each of the 12 days of Christmas. I thought it was a great idea but wasn't about to splurge on the $28.00 garland when I could make my own. So here's what I came up with:

I wanted to share the files with you guys so you could just print out your own version and display it during the holidays.  These files are quite large so you could technically cut and paste each one on a seperate page to print them larger. I grouped them together b/c I knew I wanted them smaller (3.5 X 5) so I used photoshop and selected 8X10 for each page of 4 which rendered 3.5 X 5 size images to cut out. Hope that makes sense. I just wanted them to be larger so you guys could shrink them to whatever size you would like.

I saved this original file as a different size then the others by accident, so I couldn't put it in a group of 4, so you'll have to print this single one out seperately. I just clicked print and changed the size to 3.5 X 5 and voila!

I love the color combo in the quick pages/photo frames below.  Just click on the images to enlarge then save to your computer.

For all of the football fans out there:

A fun fall quick page:

I wanted to create some cute polaroid frames with this washi tape for my own blog posts but of course I had to share with you guys as well. Here's a cluster that you can add on top of any of your own digital scrapbooking papers and just slip your own photos beneath the frames.

Here are the frames seperated out individually:

This last one is just a quick page. Just click on the image to enlarge and then save to your computer:

I bought a vintage Alice in Wonderland golden book and cut out the images of the characters I liked then scanned them in and created these little party printables to use for Libby's first birthday party and wanted to share them with you. I'll likely be reworking them in other ways so there will probably be many more Alice in Wonderland themed printables coming your way but this is what I've got going at the moment.

Fun fall digital freebies!

I have been dying to have some time to do some digital designs lately. With the new baby it's pretty much impossible to sit still for 5 minutes let alone a few hours. This morning I got a little respite since Libby took an early morning nap and I created some digital goodies for you guys. I hope you like them! Some of the pages I made from scratch and others I had the background already and I just added some elements.
Just click on the images below to enlarge then save to your computer and add photos and text to your heart's content.

New free baby shower printable invites and add-ons

Libby look a long nap today (thank the Lord) so I was able to do some crafting. I created these little printable baby shower invitations. There are 3 options - boy, girl and of course one for little LSU Tigers!
Just click on the images below to enlarge then save to your computer. All of the files are saved pre-sized so all you have to do is add text and click print.

Here's a sample:

(save the image below to your computer)

Fresh out of the printer (sorry my camera is crap):

To add a 3-D effect I added some mini clothespins (buy them HERE) and some pink and white baking twine:

I'd used a scallop punch to cut the little tea pots out to create a fun garland or you can just add text to make place cards or for gift bags. The options are endless:

For this larger teapot I used a large circle punch to create another option for adding a 3-D effect to the cards or they can be used to label goodies on a treat table or to label different types of tea:

Here's another option for creating a 3-D effect with the large circular cut out:

Here are the other files that you can edit to your heart's content!
