A Digi-scrappin’ freebie!

I don’t know what came over me. I was just learning how to use patterns and textures in photoshop. That’s it, I swear. But then I saw this really cute pillow in this decorating magazine. And I thought, Man, that would make some really cute scrapbook paper. And we all know I’m not above scanning in a pillow to make a cute design. Heck, I’ve even done it with a dog bed to make a blog background before. The next thing I knew I was acting like I knew what I was doing and trying to make digital scrapbooking papers :p

Now don’t get too excited or anything. ;) I don’t think this is going to be a regular gig for me. (Are those famous last words?) I enjoyed making the papers, but that’s about it. lol …You’ll be able to tell from the glaring lack of elements in this “kit”. Can it even be called a kit if it only has like 3 different elements? Hah.

Well anyway. Since I made it and everything, I figured I might as well share it with you guys too. :D

This kit includes:
22 papers
5 ribbons
5 buttons
4 stitches

kevinandamanda spring mini kit

{ Download Now }

If you like it, leave me a comment and let me know. :) If you use it, leave me a comment and a link so I can see it! :) If you want more papers, well, leave me a comment and let me know. I might could be talked into it. But only if ya’ll want ‘em. :D

And……..Before I forget……

We have a winner!!! :D

The winner of the $25 gift certificate to BloggerBoutique.com is
#42 Rachel!

blog makeover giveaway

Rachel’s blog, Rambling Robinsons, will soon be getting a makeover! Congrats Rachel! :)

Thanks to everyone for all the comments, and I hope ya’ll like the kit! :D More giveaways are coming soon… aren’t they fun?? :) If you’d like to be the first to know when a new one is posted, you can sign up to get an email or subscribe by RSS!

Amanda – you are amazing! I get excited when i see I have an email from you two. Thank you for this free packet and I can’t wait to use it. I’m kind of new to scrapbooking so it takes me a while – because I’m self taught. ALSO, BIG KUDDOS to you! I made your cheesy enchiladas the other night and took them to a birthday party – I made enough for 30 ppl! I was the hit of the party – and I wasn’t even my birthday!!! :D Thanks again for all you do – Star

What an awesome website! I really need the visuals to go step by step in photoshop and it was great. I love your freebie papers, too. I scanned a piece of scrapbook paper I thought was cute and did a basic background. Photobucket didn’t give me the option of enlarging to 1MB so the background did shrink on the blog. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Amanda,
Thanks so much for the tutorial! I was just playing around on photoshop too and was looking for new backgrounds when I found your blog! Can you help me figure out where or how you got the buttons and stitches? I have some papers and backgrounds of my own but I love the embellishments you give with buttons and stitches and the flowers you have now. Do you find them on the internet and download them or do you scan them in, if you scan them, how do you get it to be transparent behind them?
Thanks so much for your help!

I especially LOVE your spring mini kit – but somehow couldn’t download it… :-( :-( :-( is it possible to repost a new link if it’s not too much trouble for you? Thanks a heap :D

HI there, Amanda
I’m pretty sure I already commented before, thanking you for this kit, but I’m using it again! I so love it, and I have to say thank you so much for being willing to share it for free! I’d love to use your papers to make creations to sell on Etsy, but if you’d rather that I didn’t then I’ll stick with the papers I already own. Thank you again! (PS I’ve never used them for business – but I sure did use them to make a cookbook for our church group, and they all loved it! I did that for free, inspired in part by you!)

I LOVE your Spring kit!! I just tried the tutorial on Photoshop Elements 9 (it has the rulers and grids, thankfully) with a different design package but it did not come out right on my blog. I am using the minima template but with three columns. I then tried it on my other blog that is the minima template with two columns and it still did not fit. I will try again though because I think it looks great. :)
