Worldwide Christmas Scrapbooking Freebies

Hi everyone, and welcome to my blog.  I have so happy that you are here.   A year ago, I was just starting to scrapbook digitally, and when I had found the Worldwide Christmas Scrapping Freebies I was in heaven.  So many goodies available.  So this year I thought I would put together something for you.  A month ago Christmas Cards were on my mind.  So I created this kit to help me get them done.  I did make the kit full sized, since I wanted to scrapbook with it as well.  If you are unsure where to go next, or want to go back to the master list over on the Worldwide Christmas Scrapbooking Freebies blog just click HERE.  (Please note that since designers all over the world are involved they may be posted at different times on December 1)

Thank you for stopping by.  I would love to hear from you.  Feel free to take a look around.  Most of the freebies here are still available.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays


New Release Friday!

I haven’t had to share many new kits for you on Fridays, but today is different.  I have so much to show you, and they are all different.  I have joined the CT of Katie Creates.  She has just recently opened up two stores.  One is over at Stuff to Scrap, and the other is at Scrapable.  She also has two new kits going into her stores today.  She has “Clean Sweep” that is a beautifully coloured kit all about cleaning.  I don’t know about you, but that has definitely been on my mind with the upcoming holidays.  Her other kit is called “Let It Snow”  I love all of the blues.  But enough of me talking writing, here are the kits:
As I mentioned they can be found at  STUFF TO SCRAP  and  SCRAPABLE

Arts and Ains also has a new kit today.  It is called Worth a Thousand Words.  It is perfect for all of those precious pictures that you take, and has a nice neutral palette.  I also have a page starter that I created using this kit.  Just click on the preview to download.

Leaving a Legacy Designs also has a new kit.  This kit is going to be the featured kit in the Quickpage Exchange over at Stuff to Scrap for the month of December.  (PS Joyful Noise will be on sale for 30% off for the month of December!)  All you have to do is create a QP and post it, and at the end of the month you will get the download links for all of the other QPs created that month.  Now on to the kit.  It is called Joyful Noise.  I love these animals singing!  Kimberly has also put up a new freebie that coordinates with this kit.  Just click HERE to go to her blog to get the link.

It looks like the designers are getting ready for the holidays.  I decided to tear a room apart.  (Why?  I don’t know!)  so It looks like someone turned a fan on in front of a stack of papers.  So I have to deal with that before I can move onto Christmas.  Wish me luck.

I am hopefully off to a birthday party for my friend Kate.  We haven’t seen each other in close to 5 years!  So I am hoping that the weather, my car, and my health will all behave tomorrow.  (Oh and should I mention that we are currently getting our first snow fall of the season…. I really dislike the white stuff when it is on the roads)

Dive into Winter


Ahhh. . . there’s nothing like waking up to the first snowfall of the season. Overnight, the world has become a beautiful white land. No matter whether it’s an inch or a foot deep, snowmen, snowballs, and sleds appear so that children (and sometimes adults, too!) can fully experience the magic of snow.

Mommy Me Time Scrapper and The Scrappy Kat have teamed up to create Dive into Winter. As a follow-up to Dive into Fall, this cold weather kit brings you all you need to scrap your snowy pictures.  And if you need another reason to pick this up, it will be 60% off Black Friday (today), 50% off Saturday and Sunday, and 60% off on Monday (Nov. 26)

Dive Into Winter Quick Pages

Personally, I love snowmen.  Or at least those that appear in the house.  I have been given several hand made ones, and have also picked up this one in my layout that cycles through different colours.  I also created this word art for you.  There are a few other freebies that you can find by clicking HERE to go to the Mommy Me Time Scrapper blog.

Today has been a quiet day for me.  Just browsing through all of the shops online.  Still in my pjs and loving every minute of it.  I found this week was really busy so it is nice to have a bit of downtime.  I hope that you also will have that chance.

Operation Smile


This month's Stuff to Scrap collaboration is a very special one as all the proceeds from the sale of the kit & quick page set will go to Operation Smile. It is our hope to sell enough kits & quick page sets to pay for at least one operation to fix a child's cleft lip or palate. Included in the downloads is a blinkie for your blog or forum signature so you can show off that you have contributed to this wonderful cause. If you'd like to make a donation to the fund, we've also set up a donation in the store where for $1.00 (you can buy it as many times as you'd like), you'll receive the special blinkie to wear as well. Please help us make a child smile this holiday season!

The Stuff To Scrap designers have made you an amazing kit, Autumn Blessings, to help you scrap all those pictures taken in the fall.
