Times are so mega crazy and I bet they are for you, as well. Do me a favour. Sit back, take a deep breath and give me your best and brightest smile. Exhale and repeat. Hehehe...Enjoy today's blog by relaxing and actually reading it. I keep it light, bright, positive and in a nutshell. You'll appreciate it so when you don't rush through it. As you should be doing with most of your daily endeavours. It has changed my life greatly by doing this. Concentrating on what I'm doing and living in the present has made everything more enjoyable and I'm even happier than I was before, which I didn't think was possible. Ha!
I've got a nifty gifty for you and a present is all wrapped up and waiting for newsletter subscribers, too. If you are signed up, make sure to check your inboxes on SUNDAY. As promised, next year is going to be pretty great for blog readers and subscribers. Stay tuned!
You'll find the link for your gift at the bottom of the blog and as usual, I'll be holding you hostage through some pretty inspiration and a stash of new freebies from around DigiLand which shouldn't be too tough to suffer through. Hehehe...
Your Free Template
I needed some simple cards for my kids to take to school. I designed these adorable penguin cards with goodies from Design Cuts. As well as really great customer service and a huge variety of digital products, they've also got a lot of fab FREEBIES.
Pop over to Tuesday's blog and download these cards. There are all kinds of free Christmas tags and other cards that go years back. So you've got a good selection. Use our "search" to find what you're looking for. We've got a lot of free printables and templates on the blog. This Pinterest board might help you out, too.
This is another more glammy free card. Click on the preview to get to the download.
I offered these free place cards last week and I'm showing off our Sleigh Bells Ring Collection and new ugly sweater templates, too.
Here are a couple of lovely pages from my Creative Team to inspire you.
My lovely CT already scrapped up the free template. See if you can get any ideas from their beautiful pages.
Laureen's page and her pretty kitty who doesn't appear to be pleased with his hat.
Laureen even scrapped twice with it!
I bet you wanna squeeze those cheeks! I know I do. That's Theresa's lovely page and cutie pie.
Michal has scrapped up some serious loveliness with our Gnome For Christmas kit and I'd bet the house that this is a template from HeartStrings Scrap Art.
Theresa used our Gnome For Christmas kit and our templates for her cluster-licious page.
Gnome For Christmas and This Is Christmas Templates
Ooh, la, la, la...Tammy and her fabulousness!
And now for some other goodies around DigiLand and my scrappy pages.
Throwing Some Scraps Around has a new kit out, Nature's Calling. Get outside, breathe the fresh air and take in your surroundings. I bet their is something out there that will make you smile. Like my little guy, here. He's trying to escape daddy's camera.
Here's another scrapbooking template from Heartstrings Scrap Art. It's just one of the templates from the new collection, My Sweet Snowflake. We've actually had quite a bit of snow here, which is unusual. It wasn't always like that, but ever sine I've lived here, it doesn't snow much in Flanders. I cannot take credit for heating up the place. Hehehe...
Have you done the template mash up? I sponsored two, free templates for our group members to mash up and this was my result. I'm presently gathering the next two templates for the next mash up. Don't miss it or any of the other fantastic scrapbooking challenges in our group.
