LadyBug Bookmark Freebie

Hi there, here as promised yesterday is the LadyBug Bookmarks.  There are two of them, each with a front and back, one has a little verse that I made up and the other is blank so you can decide which you like. Just click on the image to go to the download site.

All you have to do is print out the A4 sheet, cut out the images and stick the backs to the fronts.  Lamenating them makes them a bit stronger, but you don't have to do that.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and do some enjoyable crafting.

Take Care,

LadyBug Freebie

Hi again, well it's time for a freebie again, this one is a cute little LadyBug, which comes to you in jpeg and png formats.  Also as usual I have included a jpeg Digi Stamp for you to colour in if you so wish.  This afternoon I had fun making some matching backing papers, there are three of them, all A4 jpeg. 

Look out tomorrow or the day after for a LadyBug bookmark, which you can cut out and use.

Happy Crafting,

Milly Mack Freebie

Hello there, I am in a very good mood today, not just from the really wonderful comments that people have been leaving on my blog and my 4shared site, for which I am truely greatful, but also that I have finally got my new laptop.  After the terrible time with Priscilla, Queen of the Laptops, that some of you may have read about in my blog, I have finally been blessed with a working laptop for doing my graphic designing on.  I have christened her Ruby, as that is her colour, and she (touch wood) seems to be working fine.  Yay!!!

Next came the happy news that I have won a free SVG kit of my choice from SVGCuts. The kit I choose was the '3D Flowers SVG Kit', which came via e-mail this morning, thank you very much the kind people from SVGCuts, I look forward to having a lot of fun with my Cricut in the near future. Yay!!!

Okay enough about my good mood and onto the freebie.  Today I give you Milly Mack, a lovely little girl who just loves to dress up in different coats.  In the download I have already coloured in a couple of Milly's for you, they are both in png format.  Also included are three different Milly Mack Digi Stamps, in jpeg format, so there is a lot for you to play with in todays download.  Just click the image above to be taken to the download site.

If you like Milly's quilted coat, it is made from a background paper I designed, but due to it's large size when I completed it I never made any more.  If you look carefully at the coat you will see one of the butterflies from my Butterfly Brights Freebie Kit making an appearance.  The coat is faded down from the original image which is much brighter.  If anyone is interested in the paper let me know, and I will post it up as a freebie on its own.

Hope you enjoy Milly, I was quite proud of her,

Happy Crafting,

Elle the Elephant

Hi all, hope you had a lovely weekend.  Today's freebie is a little special as it has taken me a while to complete.  Several weeks ago, not long after I first started my blog, two of my sisters, Sue and Carol, both asked me to draw an Elephant.  My first attempts were a disaster to say the least, but as I have gained confidence in drawing, and learned new tricks and techniques, I think I manged to draw a creditable Elephant for them.  Sue asked me to do the trunk pointing upwards, as it is a sign of good luck, so I think I covered all their wishes.
Elle the Elephant comes to you in both png and jpeg formats.  There are two versions of Elle as Mousey snuck into one of my drawing sessions and I didn't notice her until to late ~grin~ .  Also included is a Digi Image for you to colour in.  Just click on the image above to go to the download site.

Last but not least, a quick hello to any Sheenies that might be popping by my blog, I hope you like what you find.

Happy Crafting,

Mousey Freebie

Hi all, you know what, I think I have done this the wrong way round, I should have really given you Mousey before Kitty Litter, as in real life the cat would chase the mouse. But looking at these cute little rodents, would you really want them chased away before you could download them?
Mousey comes in four different colours, both in jpeg and png format.  I made two boy mice and two girl mice, the girls both having a flower behind their ears, oh and slightly brighter cheeks.  I also added a Mousey Digi Stamp which is really quite cute, and easy to colour in if you so wish. Click on the image above to go to the download site.
To compliment the Mousey Mice, I came up with four matching papers, just click on the image below if you would like to download them. They are A5 jpegs, but you can make them any size you like in a graphics program.  The file is quite big, I have not got the knack yet of making smaller file sizes for my papers.  I guess it is the images I add, so that is why I split them from the Mousey images, to make downloading easier for slower internet speeds.
Well thats all for this week, hope you all have a fine craftying weekend, take care.

Gilbert the Frog Freebie

Well I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I know I did.  Went out on Saturday for a drive, and can't you tell it is now Autumn, I couldn't believe the lovely colours in the trees, with their leaves all changing.  Reds, greens, golds and browns, it was really spectacular to see.  On the Sunday, with Jenson Button winning the 2009 F1 Season on the TV, I got to do a little card making in the afternoon, not that I need an excuse, and had fun making a mess with my brayer and some new 'Smirk' stamps I had bought on the Saturday. I shall have to show them off to you sometime.
For todays Freebie, I give you Gilbert the Frog, who was inspired by one of our dogs Welly, who has a tendency to thinks frogs are something to play with, and pays the price of a very nasty taste in his mouth. He has come in drooling and foaming at the mouth at least three times now, feeling very sorry for himself, yet he does not learn from the experiance. Silly dog!!!
Gilbert comes in both png and jpeg format, and also a jpeg digi stamp, I quite like the way I managed to get his eyes in the coloured version, looking a little like some of those googly eyes you can buy.
I hope you like him,

Happy Crafting,

Sally and Marnie Freebie

Hi again, today I'd like to introduce you to Sally and Marnie, two friends who just love balloons. Sally loves pink balloons and Marnie thinks blue balloons are best. I would be the first to admit that I am not the best at drawing, and drawing people was pretty hard for me.   I can't tell you how many times I redrew this pair, not happy with the hair, the face, the hands etc. etc., so hopefully the finished result isn't to bad. I learn so much each time I draw something new, and it's nice to share with others.

This download comes with two images of Sally and two of Marnie, in both jpg and png formats.  Also included are two digi images, one the original girl image and the second image is after I had added some decoration on the dress and hair.  Both just cry out for you own colours, I can't wait to get my promarkers out myself.  Finally I have included two papers, both covered in the girls balloons.  One is full colour and the other I have softened to make it look almost as if you were printing vellum. As usual just click on the image to go to the download site.

Have a really lovely weekend all, I shall really try not to post anything new until Monday, but no promises.

Happy Crafting,

Butterfly Bright Digi Stamp Freebie

This post is short and sweet, I realised I hadn't added a digi stamp in the Butterfly Brights set so I did one this morning for you to download if you wish.  It comes in both png and jpg formats, just click the image above to be taken to the download site.

Happy Crafting,

Butterfly Brights Freebie

The weather might be a bit dismal but the same can't be said for todays Freebie.  In fact I think I should warn you to put on your sunglasses before you look at this set of Butterfly Brights, after all who said that Autumn has to be all browns, oranges and yellows.  Todays Freebie is all about making you smile, and making those who you share them with, either in scrapbooking form or card making form, smile too.  Life is to short to be conventional all the time.

Butterfly Brights has been split into two downloads, as the papers by themselves are quite big and I thought it would be easier for those with a slower connection speed to download the whole kit this way.  In the first download you will get four colourful Butterflies, and four matching Tags, both in jpeg and png file formats. In the second download you will get the four matching papers, A5 size in jpeg format. Just click on the links below to be taken to the download site.

Have fun crafting,

Alien Fion Freebie

In Space no one can hear you complain about having a bad hair day!!!
This is it, there's no more space left in the corner, we have been officially over run by beings from other planets.  Meet Alien Fion, who did her hair especially for today, and is not happy that it has gone all frizzy and fly-away.

As with Alien Bob and Alien Sid, Alien Fion comes to you in two versions, a nicely colourful image and a digi stamp for you to colour.  The images come in both jpeg and png format, and Fion also brings two of her very own backing papers for you, both A5 jpegs. Click the image above to download this file.

Hopefully there will be no more other wordly visits to the Crafty Corner, as it's getting slightly cramped in here, but you never know, the 'Truth is out There'.

Have a great weekend all,

hugs Greebs..xx

Alien Sid Freebie

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Alien Sid!!

I told you that Alien Bob had a few friends, and look who has dropped in to see you all, it's that purple dude from outer space, Alien Sid.

As with Alien Bob, his good friend Sid, comes to you in two versions, a nicely colourful image and a digi stamp for you to colour.  The images come in both jpeg and png format, and Sid also brings two of his very own backing papers for you, both A5 jpegs. Click the image above to download this file.

Not only that but Alien Sid brought a special gift for you all,  three toppers, each in jpeg and png formats, and a decoupage sheet of toppers for you to print out.  These would look great on cards and scrapbook pages, and go nicely with Alien Sid's backing papers.  Click the images below to download this file.

I wonder if the Aliens are trying to take over the whole of Crafty Corner, I suppose time can only tell.  Check back often to see if you can spot any more Out Of This World goings on.

Alien Bob Freebie

Run For Your Lives!!!!  
The Aliens are coming, and boy do they look scary!!! 

No, it's okay, come out from behind the sofa, it's only Alien Bob, and he doesn't look that scary at all, in fact looking at his strange little smile I am sure he really wants to be friends.

Alien Bob, comes to you in two versions, a nicely colourful image and a digi stamp for you to colour.  The images come in both jpeg and png format, and Bob also brings two of his very own backing papers for you, both A5 jpegs.

Some more of Bob's friends might be invading my crafty corner this week, so keep your eyes peeled for strange occurrences in the future.

Happy Crafting,

Stitched Just For You

Hi all, yesterday I went out to visit 'Pondskipper Crafts' in Peterborough, and had a great time looking through all the crafty things.  I was lucky enough to come across a set of unmounted stamps by 'Creative Expressions', that I had loved when I saw it on 'Create and Craft' on TV. The stamps come on a rubber sheet and are from the U-Mount series, and this set is called 'Stitches'.
When I got home I mounted the rubber sheet onto 'EZ Mount', and carefully cut out the images.
For this card I used a large corner stamp from the set, the stamps measures just over 11.5 cm x 12 cm, and is a lovely size.
I stamped out the image using a 'Memento - Tuxedo Black' inkpad and then coloured in using promarkers, but decided to limit myself to three colours for the actual stamp.  The colours I chose were Burnt Orange, Olive Green and Aubergine. I did use the colour Cool Grey 1 to shadow around the image, but everything else was coloured with the other three.  I then matted the image onto a deep purple paper and then onto a lovely bronze mirri board, placing the final topper by foam tape to raise it, onto a 15.5 cm square card.  I then did fake stitching around the outside of the card with a black pen, to blend with the stitched effect of the rubber stamp.
The greeting was from a set of 'Fairy Doodles' clear rubber stamps by 'buzzcraft', which was stamped and then matted and mounted on foam tape.
I liked making this card very much, and really loved the effect of using the three colours, I hope you all like it to.

'Til next time, happy crafting,

Secret Time...  When I was at Pondskipper I was told a little secret, on the 16th October, Pondskipper with be unveiling their very first craft collection on the 'Create and Craft' tv shopping channel , they are needless to say very excited about this and I really wish them well.  They gave me a sneaky peak at what they were going to show, and it was lovely, so remember to put the date in your crafty diary.

George and a Word to the Wise Freebie

So I maybe getting carried away with this freebie lark, I admit it, but I am just enjoying creating things to darn much to stop it seems.
Though I must admit I was very much encouraged by some really fantastic comments left on my blog and on the 4share download site.  It does mean so much to hear how people are enjoying my graphics. So today I have a little gift for you all.
George the Owl, as anyone who has read my blog knows, is my most popular download to date, and just because I felt like it I made these two bookmarks.  The bookmarks are for you to cut out, they come with a front and a back, that you just have to stick together.  One of the backs is plain and the other has a Nursery Rhyme written on it, which sums George up quite nicely. You can size the bookmarks to suit yourself, and if you have a lamenator, they look really cool wrapped in plastic!!! 

That's all for now folks,

Happy Crafting,

Who Let The Dogs In? Freebie

Okay, the weekend is nearly upon us once more, the nights are beginning to draw in and the spookiness of October 31st is ever closer. I have noticed a large amount of scary freebies around at the moment, ghouls and ghosties and all manner of spooky creations litter the freebie pages.  All except mine that is, typical that I am still offering cute and cuddly.
Today I am giving you an unspecified breed of dog in three different colours, Brown, Spotty and White.  In the file you download will be three pngs, and three jpegs of the dogs, the white jpeg is of course for you to colour in if you so wish.  To download just click on the image to be taken to the download site.

Priscilla Update:
Alas the news is not good, in fact I don't think it could be any worse, poor Priscilla my laptop of a few days is no more.  After being kept by 'Mesh Computers' after they agreed to send out a new laptop to replace her, it turns out that all the laptops like Priscilla have the same fault. 
'Mesh' were kind enough to ring and say that they didn't want to send out a laptop with that same problem and that the only thing they could do was offer a refund. 
So after over three months of waiting for my laptop, then it being sent back with a fault, returned to me still with the same fault, sent back to be told it was my fault I had done something to it.  To be then told that they would replace it for all my troubles, and now the replacement has the same fault, so have your money back!!!
Not straight away of course, after having our money for around four months now, it will still take them up to ten working days to sort out the return of it, upon querying this length of time, my husband was told that we wasn't the only one waiting for a refund!!! 

Of that my dear 'Mesh Computers' I have no doubt.

So that is it, the sad little saga of 'Priscilla, Queen of the Laptops' has ended, not with a fanfair, but instead are rather quiet sigh, I bet you are all glad it's finally over.

Till next time, enjoy the doggies, have a great weekend.
