Celebration QP

Ok, so today I've got the Celebration QP for you. As usual it is in 3 sizes and saved in png format. I had a lot of fun playing with this kit, and I hope you like what I did with it!******This link has expired!******

And here are my cute kids at our New Year's party last year. They decorated party hats and ran around making noise with the other kids. Don't think either one was old enough to get what was going on, but we all had fun anyway! Oh yea, and thats me behind my younger daughter trying to hide 9 month prego belly!!
Oh yea, and check back tomorrow for my first wallpaper of 2009 - I can't believe how quickly the year has gone!!!

Celebration Freebie Kit

Well, Christmas is past (and as my husband would say... only 354 days til Christmas! It's almost Christmas!) Today I have a fun New Years kit for you. I also have some exciting news (at least for me) I have joined my first CT! I have joined the Creative Team at The Scrapping Tree. Her designs are beautiful! She has some beautiful freebies on her blog! I am so excited to work with Vero! And now you are going to get to see lots more of my layouts! :) Also, I have been approached by Scrapbook Max about bundling my kits so they are made for their program, so each of these kits will also have a link for the scrapbook ma bundle. This download will just be a duplication of the others, so if you are not using scrapbook max, you don't need to use that download! I am also going to go back and re-bundle my older kits for Scrapbook max, so be patient with me and I will get there eventually! So with no further ado, here is Celebration!******This link has expired!******
Check my store for this kit!

My CT has put together some fun pages to give you some ideas of what you can do with it!
Here is an awesome QP from Ginger. Also make sure to check out her site for some fun New Years Word art that coordinates with this kit! Check out her blog!!
I love this page from Toni! I love how she used the elements. Also check out her blog for some fun QP's that go with this kit. Get her QP's HERESharon put together this fun layout featuring a fun new years trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! (*beats back green eyed monster!!!*) Sharon also has a couple great QP's on her blog!

New CU bow freebie

Today I've got another CU item for you. This satin bow comes with a layered tiff file, a psd file and a png file. Hopefully that will cover all the bases! You may notice that I don't include a TOU with my commercial use stuff, that is because you may do what you want with them. No credit is required. If you do something with them though, I would LOVE to see it! Anyway, enjoy and check back next week for lots of fun stuff! Download HERE

Don't forget to scroll down and grab the whole kit if you haven't already! As usual here is my QP for my part of the Christmas Around the World Blog Train. 3 sizes and all in png format. Hope you enjoy them! I've got tons more stuff coming up so don't forget to check in during the holidays for lots more freebies!! ******This link has expired!******

Freebie Template #6

I've got another holiday template for you, and don't worry, 4 and 5 will come later! Once again, it is in 3 sizes and I have included the layered tiff and psd files. (Thanks so Stephanie for pointing out just how much room you can save if you just keep the tiff files and not the psd) I skipped just putting in the png files this time. If neither of these formats work for you and you want this template, let me know, and I will make up the png files for you. The picture is meant to go in the ornament in the middle, and this would make a fun Christmas card too (it would need to be resized though!)

And here is an idea of what could be done with it!

A Holiday Template

Well as you can see winter has arrived at Flower Scraps! I've got tons of stuff for you this month including one more collab along with your regular kit. And of course QP's for each kit. Plus I will be announcing my CT on Monday. If you are interested please email me and I will get all the details out to you! I've been going crazy here because I've had little to no internet for the last 3 days and I've been waiting to get you FREEBIES!!!! I've made up a holiday template for you today. Once again I have included psd files, layered tiff files and the seperate png pieces. If some of you wonderful people out there who don't use photoshop could tell me if the layered tiff files work for you, I would love you forever!!!!! But seriously, it is easier for me to make these than it is to seperate every thing into different files and save them as pngs. Download HERE

I used this template to make this LO using my part of the Christmas Around the World Blog train that will be taking off on December 12th. So be sure to check back then for TONS of beautiful freebies!!!

CT Call and December Wallpaper

Well I've finally decided to try and put together a Creative Team. I've never actually been on a creative team, so this is all new territory for me. I think that this is a step I need to take if I am going to try selling anything in a store. The requirements are fairly light, but will expand to include posting in the Taggers Scraps gallery when I start selling there. I'm hoping for 4 people, but honestly, I am just hoping someone applies! If you are interested please email me with a couple of your LO's or the link to your blog, or gallery. Newbies welcome! I will send more information to any who are interested so as to keep this post less tedious!

Also I have a freebie for you today- your December wallpaper. As usual it is in 3 sizes and .png format! For all you non-Christmas people, I'm sorry, I haven't finished my winter kit yet! Download HERE

CU flower

So this is a flower that I made while trying out ways to make flowers. :) I really like the way it turned out and even used it in my "After Dusk" kit. Included in the freebie are the 3 colored flowers shown in the preview, a layered psd file (for Photoshop) and each individual piece as a greyscale png file. If you use it in a kit, send me a link and I would be glad to show it off here along with a link to your blog or store. Enjoy!

Turkey Time QP and BIG news!!

Well, here it is, your Turkey Trouble QP! Hope you enjoy it! Check back next week for a CU freebie and your December wallpaper. (I know I say this every month, but I can't believe it's almost December, This month has gone so fast, and so has the year) ******This link has expired!******

And here are my ever adorable kids on a trip to a local pumpkin patch.
Ok, so on to my big news! I have been asked to sell my kits in a wonderful store called Taggers Scraps. I am so excited that someone thinks my stuff is good enough to be store-worthy! I am going to wait until the new year to start. So what does this mean for all your wonderful scrappers out there? For starters, my kits will continue to be full sized kits. Also, I will be putting together a CT sometime in the next month. Finally, (and I know this is what you are really looking to hear) my blog will continue to be stocked with freebies. I will continue to do the ADSD blog train, and one kit a month, along with the QP's and such. Also everthing on my blog will stay free on my blog. The things going into the store will be newer and bigger. (at least that is the idea!) and if I run out of ideas the store kits may end up coordinating with the freebie on my blog.

My First Tutorial

So tonight I have the tutorial that was overwhelmingly voted for. Out of the 4 options, a tutorial on creating torn paper was by far the winner. I will warn you that this is a long tutorial. Partially because I am a bit long winded, but mostly because I go into a lot of detail. Hopefully this tutorial is detailed enough for the photoshop newbie, but also provides some ideas for the more advanced users. The tutorial is interspersed with screen shots to help explain. I have included the two examples that I created while doing the tutorial in the zip document. This heart is one of the examples found in the file. Anyway, leave some love and if you have any feed back on my tutorial, please leave that as well. (If it's negative, please be gentle!!! ) :)

Turkey Trouble!!

Ok, here it is, my kit for the month. This is the kit used to make the November wall paper and my festive blog BG and header. Special thanks to Deb of Scrappin' Cop for her turkey template. Also to Hummie of Hummie's World for the color pallet. This actually started out as a color challenge in her forum. Anyway, much love to you all, and withouth further ado, here is "Turkey Trouble!"

Shabby Watermelon Add On

Ok, so as promised, here is the Shabby Watermelon Add On. I included all the stuff I made for the QP that wasn't in the kit, and some other things that I just had fun making! Scroll down a few posts to find the original kit which, like everything else here, is free! If you notice on the side I have put up a shout box since 4shared has made it hard to post comments now... So please (yes I'm pathetic and I'm begging) leave some love! I do all this simply because it's fun, not because I get any profit out of it, so thanks are greatly appreciated and help me feel like the time spent is worth it! Also check back next week for my latest kit "Turkey Trouble" and the promised tutorial! ******This link has expired!******
This has been included with the full kit and can be found in my store as of March 1st

Shabby Watermelon QP

Well this has been a crazy week! This time of the year is always hectic around here! My sweet husband is a wrestling coach, and so from now to the end of the season in February, the only time I will really get to see him is the little bit of time around the holidays, when we are busy doing holiday stuff! Never fear though, your flow of freebies will not flag or fail!! First off I have a QP from my Shabby Watermelon Kit. Tomorrow, I will post a Shabby Watermelon Add On. I've never really done an add on before but this time, as I made the QP, I found that I had lots more ideas floating around to go with this that just hadn't made it into the kit because of the deadline. So the Add on should show up tomorrow and then on Monday I've got a Fun little Thanksgiving Kit for you called Turkey Trouble! So have fun with this sweet little QP!

Also here is the QP with pictures of my oldest daughter enjoying her first smoothie!

Template 2

Download HERE

Ok, I tried something new with this template. just like the last one it contains psd files in each size and png files of the main elements for you to use if you don't have photoshop. I have also included a layered tiff file in each size. The tiff files should be use-able for any program... Since I don't have any other programs, I can't vouch for this, so if some of you wonderful scrapbookers out there will try it out and let me know if it is worth doing in the future I would really appreciate it!!

Here is a page I made with the template using my "Funky Fresh" kit. Heehee, my kids are so cute!! :)

After Dusk QP Freebie

Ok, now that I'm out of the contest, I can stop running around like a chicken with my head cut off! I've got tons of stuff coming up for you this month including a tutorial, another kit, a couple more QP's, a template, a CU freebie and maybe a couple of other surprises! :) So here is a QP made with my portion of the After Dusk Collab. For the full kit, scroll down a couple of posts! As usual the pages are in 3 sizes and saved in png format. Enjoy, and leave some love!! :)
******This link has expired!******

This is a picture of my DH and I at our wedding reception. I used the Pioneer Women "vintage" filter on the photo and just dropped it into the QP, and added a title and date.

Funky Fresh QP's

If you are looking for the After Dusk Collab, keep scrolling down! This has been a crazy busy month for me. Today I've got a QP for you using my Funky Fresh kit from the Sunshine Studios Design Competition. We are still awaiting the judges verdict on Mission 2, so hopefully We will know soon, The suspense is killing me!!!!! :) Either way, I've got tons of Freebies for you this month, and since I probably wont get much done during Thanksgiving Weekend, I've got less time to do it in! Anyway, enough rambling, Here is your Freebie!

And here is my cute little boy

Shabby Watermelon and Sunshine Update!

****Note - This post has been altered so the link goes directly to the 4shared download link. The contest was fun, but little newbie designer me isn't quite ready for the big time yet! But hey! At least y'all got some free kits out of it! Anyway, I'm not really sure I entered the contest so I could sell stuff, I kinda just entered for the challenge. :) I kinda like feeling like a pushover and giving all my stuff away for free (and oddly enough that isn't just the rejection talking and it's not even sarcastic!!) :)****

******This link has expired!******
Check my store for the expanded version!

So for round two in the sunshine contest, I needed to make another mini kit. We were given two pictures to gain our inspiration from, then make a kit with at least 2 extracted elements and and a full alpha. So once again, go check out the Sunshine Studios gallery where you can download this kiit and all the other amazing submissions! Enjoy!

Check back in the next couple of days for some QP's! (Haha I know, I'm a bit behind on that, but this contest has kept me busy!)

After Dusk - ADSD Blog Train Freebie!!

I would like to start this post off by making a request. Many of you have seen and used the beautiful kits by Summer Driggs. Once again she has put out a beautiful kit, but with the kit comes a must-read story. Please take a minute or two of your time to read the story and show your support.

Now, on a lighter note, it is now November, in otherwords, it's time for another HUGE blog train collaboration! I had TONS of fun with the color scheme and theme. I am a huge fan of musicals and one of my favs has always been "My Fair Lady." As I looked at the color scheme and the theme I kept thinking of the scene where Freddie is dancing around wrought iron fences singing "On the Street Where You Live" That is the inspiration for this kit. My brain latched onto the wrought iron idea and it just flew! I had a hard time stopping! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, and make sure to look for the wonderful QP's and BB pages made with my part of the kit further down the train!
******This link has expired!******
Be sure to look for this kit in my store!

**** Note - it has been kindly brought to my attention that I forgot the 'p' in my plain alpha. (Apparently, I didn't fully learn my alphabet in grammar school!) The link has been updated to include this very important letter (for with out the letter p we have no pie!) If your version is lacking, and you feel a desperate need to have the letter p and flipping the letter d just won't do, and you really don't want to re-download the whole alpha, please feel free to email me at flowerscrap@gmail.com and I will happily make amends for my oversight! Hugs, Deanna****

Willow Grace Desins Created some Beautiful BB pages with my part of the kit. You can click on the image to be taken straight to her blog to download!

Debbie at Digital Keepsakes has also made a couple of beautiful QP's! Once again, click on her preview to be taken to her blog for a download.

If some of these pieces aren't up yet, be patient! These people live all over the world, and live all kinds of lives, If something isn't up, check back in a day or so! Also, be sure to leave some love for these wonderful people and all the time and effort they have put into this freebie! Enjoy!!
