Two Great Products

My goal on this blog is not to advertise lots of other people’s items — it’s to share my creations with you.  However, there are a few things that I will promote on my blog.

First one is Scrapbook Max!  I think that this program is about the best out there for digital scrapbookers, whether you are a beginner or an experienced scrapper.  Yes, there are other programs like Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop, but these programs are quite pricey and have a much higher learning curve than Scrapbook Max!   And one of the best things about Scrapbook Max! is that you can download and use it FREE for 30 days!  Tell me, who doesn’t like free.  With the new features in version 2, there is so much that you can do.  Why not click the banner above for your 30 day FREE trial.  When you are absolutely positive that you can’t live without it, be sure to come back, click through the banner again to make your purchase.  That way you help me continue to provide quality freebies for you!  Not only are you helping me, but you will alsobbe saving 20% and you get a free bonus!  The only thing better than a sale is FREE and you get the best of both worlds here!!

Secondly, I’ve become quite fond of using clipart!  If you  have been enjoying the freebie this month, you may have noticed that I have used some clipart in my designs.  Digi Scrap Kits has some of the best clipart out there and their TOU are wonderful!!  Again, click on the banner above (Country Graphics by Trina Clark & Friends) to be taken directly to their site.  If you make a purchase from them, you will once again be helping me out!  At the moment, they are running a sale (several designers have their clipart on sale for $1.00) and if you spend $10 or more, you can use the coupon code HEARTS for an additional 25% off.  But this sale is only good until January 29.  Don’t miss out on this great deal!  At least go and see what they have to offer.  I will continue to create my kits using clipart from this great site.  Not every kit will use clipart, though.  But be on the lookout for the ones that are.  You won’t want to miss them.

Thanks for indulging me in this little advertisement.  I’ve joined the affiliate programs for both of these companies because I believe in their product.  But I also joined so that I could earn a little extra $$ to help me with the costs involved in providing quality freebies for you.  Believe it or not, it does cost $$ (scripts, actions, etc. cost me $$) and right now, these affiliate programs and my Digi Cyber Scraps Store are my source of income so that I don’t use household $$.

If you read this far, you are a true fan!  Thank you.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the next installment of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.  Be sure to come back.

Blessings,

Digital Designer’s Deliberations

This whole blog phenomenon is really quite interesting and especially for those of us with digital scrapping blogs. I love reading about other people’s lives on their blog and follow quite a few with Google Reader (imho, it’s the best that there is!!). In the words of my daughter, I stalk others! But some of the stories out there are just so interesting. I especially like the ones that involve children since I love kids! But I digress. I don’t think so highly of myself or my life story that I think you come here to learn about me. I know that you come for my freebies, and believe me when I say, “IT’S OK!!”. If you didn’t like what I was creating, you wouldn’t be here. That in and of itself keeps me going.

But your comments and your sharing of layouts with me, keeps me going even more. I have such great plans for the year and already those plans are being dashed by previous plans that my dh and I have made. For instance, I have an idea for your February freebie but I’m not sure it will get done. We are going to be away next week from Monday through Thursday morning for our annual pastor’s retreat in south Jersey.. That means I lose a lot of designing time. I suppose that I could take the laptop (and I probably will) and use my old version of PSP but the laptop doesn’t have PS and I’ve been using that a lot in my designing.

What does this all mean for you and your freebie? Well, to be honest I really don’t know yet. If I’m unable to get next month’s freebie finished, I’ll be happy to recycle last year’s Valentine freebie. Stay tuned for more information.

Now, on to the real reason that you came by for a visit today. You are anxiously, or not, awaiting the next installment of your freebie. Thanks so much for the comments about this kit. If the number of downloads is any indication of what you think about this kit, then you must like it! I’m so glad that you all are enjoying it — that makes me feel good!! Here’s the preview for today’s freebie with download links below!

Day of Rest

Since today is Sunday and my day of rest, I decided to write this post on Saturday evening. Thus this post will be short and to the point. You stopped by today for the next part of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and I have it ready for you. Preview and links are below for this freebie!
