We've made it to Friday and of course, we've got freebies for you. It's also my birthday! So, the freebie should be a bit special and it is.
Layout love is on tap along with some lovely previews of new kits out in DigiLand. We also have some unique tips for you and gifts in typical Cherry fashion.
I don't know how it is where you are, but we are having rain, rain, rain. It has not been cold in Belgium here for years. A few days of freeing, but nothing major. Nothing like the snow you see in this picture. I don't really mind not having snow, being a Florida girl.
We're looking a couple of collections out this winter and we want to touch on how you can coordinate various collections together to make really awesome stuff. One of the easiest ways to mix and match is by colour. Match up the same shades of red, blues, whites...Think about theme. Look through your snow kits and pick the pieces out you like best. Maybe even start a folder of all of your favourite flowers and greenery. For some reason, designers often come up short with the appropriate greenery in a kit. Don't settle! Look through other kits and use the ones that fit best.
This is an example of Paty Greif's newest kit, It's Snowing Outside. Look carefully at this lovely colour palette. Of course, it's always a nice fit when the photos you are using repeat some of the colours from the kit or collection.
This is a glimpse at the collection. Her drawings are always so wonderful and unique.
Now, let's take a look at this free overlay I designed a couple of weeks ago. Notice the colours? Not a bad match at all. I put a variety of goodies from different designers into this. Though most of them come from The Kit Cart Designs, Winter's Frost collection which is totally cracking! Those gorgeous ribbons and that flower with stunning embellishment, adds so much glamour and pow to my page.
The fence is my own design. I used a template from GS Creations and some wood paper/background to fill it in. This gives the overlay a natural, warm feel against the chilly snow and my bundled up baby. Hehehe...The icy tree is also my design. Another template from GS Creations with just an added effect from my software program. The birds are also ours. They fit just great even though they don't come from the collection.
Both images are downloadable by right clicking. They are also for Personal Use Only.
This free template also coordinates with the freebies well. Click on the image to get to the blog for the download.
It's my birthday, today and I have a special gift for you!
Enjoy this FREE Mini Kit using our Winter Goodies.
Remember, I don't know diddly about quality control and it's for Personal Use Only.
Leave me some birthday loving and enjoy your free mini.
Thanks so much for stopping by The Cherry!
