Star Overlay Freebie

Santa will be using the North Star soon to navigate the world in his magic sleigh. Here is a png star overlay for use in your own creations. It is provided in jpg and tiff formats as well as in white too. A quick way to recolor the black stars in the jpeg format in photoshop (or elements) is to add a color filled layer on top of the stars and set the color layer to screen. Download the overlays via mediafire HERE. For small commercial use and personal use. Enjoy creating!

P.S. I fixed the link to the previous chevron freebie. It can be downloaded HERE in case you were sent elsewhere last week!

something for the new year

I came across my ombre inspiration board while cleaning up my crafting space last week. Thought I'd do some ombre chevrons. I love the combination! Download the free kit from mediafire HERE. For small commercial use and personal use.

And the winner is...

Congratulations goes to comment number 4 by Carly @ Mason's Roost! You are the winner of the 5 free kits. Please contact me with your wishlist and I will send you your links.

I'm looking forward to the Christmas Holidays. I hope I'll have time to get all of my new kits listed by the New Year...we'll see. I always find it a challenge to pick a dozen papers for a kit...there's almost always two dozen or more that I narrow down to a designers dozen. You can usually find a bonus sheet or two in all of my kits. I have several folders of extra's that don't make it into my kits for sale...but sometimes make it here as freebie mini kits. Today is a little different exclusive mini kit that I am creating for personal will be released in two or three parts as I create it. My daughter has been singing Twinkle, twinkle, little star all the time lately. I captured the singing in a cute picture that needs a special layout. I'll be sharing the finished layout at the end too. Here is the first part, a set of 4 papers that you can download from mediafire.

Our December projects are started...but not as far along as we'd hoped. We are short at least one peice of tile for our fireplace surround...and some trim for the mantel. I'll share the before and after pictures hopefully before santa arrives. We need to get those stockings hung!! Only a couple of weeks left. You can check out my inspiration pinterest board for our mantel. Off to finish a couple of sewing projects from my to do list. The play mat MUST get done!!
