Free Leaves Digi Paper available at Scribbles Designs


Hello my friends!  I'm just popping in to let you know that the latest freebie is available over on the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog for all of our Freebie Fridayer fans!

Yesterday it officially became Fall here in the northern hemisphere and to celebrate this beautiful and colourful season's arrival, I have made you a digi paper using a trio of leaves that Sandy offered up as a freebie back in October of 2014. You can find both the original image AND the paper you see below in the preview, by clicking HERE. The original image can also be found in the store HERE. 

Here is a preview of the paper...



Another creation under the Scribble Doodle Designs label! I coloured each of the leaves and then saved them separately so that I could space them out evenly throughout the paper. This free paper is six inches by six inches (1800 pixels x 1800 pixels)--the perfect size for card making! It is in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: HG Designs; Stachoo Scraps and of course, Scribbles Designs. As mentioned above, you can download it over on the challenge blog as today's Freebie Friday offering.

Don't forget to mark you calendars every Friday to head on over to the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog to grab the latest freebie up for grabs.  You can find the original image and the digi paper from September 23rd's post HERE.  It is a great way to add to your SD digi stamp collection and to your Scribble Doodles Designs collection.  Don't forget, that when you use an SD image on a project that you enter into our monthly challenges, you get extra entries!  That is a great incentive to use one of Sandy's images. 

Have a wonderful weekend and take care until we meet again!

Scribbles Designs September 9th Freebie: Suntan Lotion


Hey peeps! I'm super swamped at the moment--along with all my regular duties my hubby's sister is going to be here on Friday to stay with us for several days and we also have a wedding to go to on Saturday; so unfortunately, I don't have a project to share with you. However, I still wanted to let you know that a new Freebie Friday Image is available, over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog.  

As summer isn't officially over until September 21st, we're trying to hold on to that last bit of sunshine so this week there is a tube of Suntan Lotion available for download. You can find the Suntan Lotion from September 9th's post HERE. Alternatively, you can find it in the store HERE.

Have a great weekend!
