Free Add On for The Manor in Springtime

Wow was this add on fun to make. It all started when I couldn't find the brush I needed to make the chandeliers that I wanted to include in the original kit. With the theme and Kim's gorgeous palette I just couldn't stop! The add on includes 2 papers that look like terra cotta tile, 1 foot bridge, 1 lantern, 1 ivy sprig, 1 cork, 1 beaded border, 2 tassels, 1 locket and a bead spill and since this is the end of the month I guess it's time to stop.

Lots more to come on the Easter kit and I'm working on some really pretty floral papers for you so y'all come back now!

If by chance you missed the kit, it's still available below- thanks!

Free Easter Kit - part 6

Okay, I didn't want to wait any longer to post another download for you - so this one's a real hodge podge of elements and papers that go with the kit - That's why I hate doing a kit in pieces, it's hard for people to imagine how it all works together - I promise it does - just make sure you get all the downloads. They are all still available.
Today there are 5 "Hoppy Easter" papers in assorted colors with slightly different designs on each, a bunny pair and a bunny with a basket of eggs, a locket, 2 speech bubbles, a glitter floral border, some buttons, some brads I really had fun making and a flowered basket.
There's another whole set of eggs, baskets and grass coming and hopefully some more papers and I know you need some frames - this kit may not be done before Easter, but I know I still have several more installments to get out. Download #6 HERE

While we're on the subject of Easter look at this layout that was sent to me by Kay Marie (indigosd) This uses my Welcome Ava kit - isn't it GORGEOUS!!!!!! The photo is from 1910.
I love to see what people make with my creations - Thanks Kay Marie!

Free Easter Kit

My personal time commitments have changed and unfortunately I've had to close my SAS store. It's been a wonderful experience, but I find I can no longer keep up with the commitment.

The good news for all of my blog  followers is that I'll be using my design time to create freebies you can find here on a regular basis.

The first is a  full sized Easter kit with a whimsical feel called The Bunny Hood. I'll be leaving downloads  here as I work on it as often as I can. I  don't have a preview for you because it's not a complete kit as yet. I did give you a color swatch so that you can tell if it will be a match to your photos and hopefully you'll have some fun with it.

There will definitely be a lot of Easter Elements such as eggs and jelly beans, baskets and several more bunnies and of course some chicks. So stop back often so that you can get the complete kit. The little layout below is just to give you an idea of what the kit will be like.

Grab the first download HERE.
