My youngest daughter, Ellie, has been bitten by the digi bug lately. A few times a week she has been creating layouts for herself using templates and adding papers and elements, resizing, adding shadows and using control-Z to get rid of things she doesn’t like.

Today she created a new layout using some of the wonderful things she bought for herself using her challenge winnings at Jessica Sprague.

My only helping was with the typing and showing her how to use the “align” to line up the 2-0-1-1.

As soon as we were done with that Ellie announced that she wanted to make her own paper.  So using a few commercial use items in my stash, I showed her how to add layers, using blending modes and change the opacity. She really liked the opacity slider. After she made a few papers she told me she wanted to give them away to my friends on the blog. So here is Ellie’s first try at designing papers (with a little help from Mom):

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a freebie so I thought you all deserved one in honor of  Father’s Day here in the U.S. My Dad is off fishing in Canada and I am spending time with my family at the cabin.

Just for you: Daddy’s Shoes kit (available for one week only!)

(Sorry this freebie has expired!)

There is a FREEBIE involved with this new challenge I’m hosting at Faith Sisters. I was inspired by this cover by Songs 4 Worship:

I loved the slightly grungy white paper and the “joy” word art, so I made this little FREEBIE for you:

My first ever blog hop and I’m so excited to be participating with my friends from Ten designers are giving away free mini-kits starting this Thursday with chances to win even more kits! Hope you’ll come back Thursday to check it out. I promise it will be worth your while.

I am so excited to be running my first ever challenge at Faith Sisters and I’ve called it “Cover Challenge”. I love music and I’ve always got a song in my head when I wake up in the morning. It’s often how I start my prayers too. So it seemed only natural to me that I look to Christian music covers for my Designer’s Challenge Thursday with a “Cover Challenge” this week. My inspiration comes from this Mercy Me cover.

It’s a simple design with simple elements, yet it “spoke” to me on many levels. So for your challenge, should you choose to accept it is this: Create a layout from something that inspires you about this cover.

Does the main element, the heart inspire you? I’ve created a FREEBIE heart balloon that is available in my shop.


Does the silhouetted figure get the creative ideas going? You can make your own or use these fantastic silhouette brushes from Obsidian Dawn HERE.

How about the title? I was struck by the word “generous”. It got me thinking about how we can afford to be generous because God has given us everything. There are many wonderful verses about being generous and generosity. Maybe one of these speaks to you this week:

  • You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. (2 Corinthians 9:11)
  • Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. (Det 15:10)
  • Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. (Psalms 112:5)
  • A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)
  • If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)

Here’s what I created:
I used the heart balloon freebie, a silhouette of my youngest daughter because she has the gift of generosity that I am learning from and the verse from 2 Corinthians that reminds me of just how “rich” I really am. Where will this challenge take you? I’d love to see.

I love fall. It has to be my favorite season. The cooler temperatures, the changing leaf colors, the crispness in the air–I love it!

I have lots of new fall stuff in the store, including a fall quotes FREEBIE so check it out.

First a FREEBIE available HERE in honor of Teddy Bear Day (September 9th).

The unconditional love a teddy bear brings reminds us of the unconditional love of our heavenly Father. So enjoy this little “freebie” and remember that God loves you!

It coordinates beautifully with my “Bear Hugs” kit available at Faith Sisters.

I’ve entered the Designer’s Challenge at and there are FREEBIEs involved. I created a kit based on their color scheme and hope to have a chance a becoming a designer for their shop.

Here’s my kit:
