Week 1 of NDIDDS competition means more freebies for you!

Posted by abyscraps on May 8, 2009

Today the links for our Week 1 entries in the NDIDDS contest should be going live.
Here is my preview for my mini kit:

preview of just the papers to the Retro freebie mini kit

There are 8 papers and 16 elements in the kit. It’s colorful and funky and would be great for scrapping pictures of celebrations, teenagers, or from the 70s or 80s, or pretty much anything if you like magenta, pink, aqua blues and the other colors.

The Week 1 gallery links are: Designs In Digital and/or Just Digi Layouts.

New Freebie to download

Posted by abyscraps on May 7, 2009

Wow, it’s been FOREVER since I posted here. I’m sorry. Life just keeps getting in the way. And I’ve been busy trying to learn more skills in terms of digital scrapping and designing … so maybe it will be worth it.

Right now I have joined in at the NDIDDS competition at Designs In Digital. Due to the number of contestants, half of the entries will be in the store at Designs In Digital and half at the sister site Just Digi Layouts. The best part is the entry kits are all FREE for you!

Here is the preview for my Warm Up round kit:

November’s ADS Collab Kit for your enjoyment …

Posted by abyscraps on November 1, 2008

The November kit that the ADS designers have put together should be very interesting. The theme is After Dusk, which immediately made me think “stars!”. The color palette was a little hard for me to get inspiration, as I lean towards liking blues, greens, and neutrals. But I do have my contribution ready for you all to enjoy. At least I hope that you enjoy it!

A New Freebie for You

Posted by abyscraps on September 9, 2008

August was somehow a very busy month for me so I did not take part in the ADS Designer’s Collab megakit. Well, OK, I made a couple of papers for it, but I have to package them up before I can give them away to you folks out there, so hopefully in a couple of days I will post them. In the meanwhile, I hope that everyone got on the blog train and collected all the goodies to Cornucopia of Colors. If not, here is the first blog in the list, Aisne’s blog, and you can follow on from there.

So, over Labor Day weekend I made a mini add-on kit. It’s an add-on to Pillowgirl’s Tropical Punch kit found at My Scrap Shop.

Here is my freebie add-on kit:

  • 3 flowers
  • 1 leaf
  • 1 luggage tag
  • 1 round frame in 4 colors

Enjoy, folks, and I really will be back to this blog before another month passes!

The August Aspiring Designer’s collab kit has arrived!

Posted by abyscraps on August 1, 2008

The ADS blog train has arrived at the station again, this month with an even BIGGER collab kit called Zoo Spirit!

So without any further delay, here are my previews for the kit:

abyscraps Zoo Spirit papers

abyscraps Zoo Spirit elements

Click on the previews to download.

I have also created layered PSP and PSD versions of the paper that has the folded corner, so that you can insert pictures or elements under either or both folds of the paper. They are each zipped up separately so you can download whichever one you can use:

Now keep in mind that we have contributors in many different time zones and several different countries, so if their kits are not available as yet, please be patient. Also, EVERYONE loves a little love and gratitude, so if you want us all to keep offering our work as freebies, PLEASE leave some love or at least a thank you on the blogs.

Follow the Zoo Spirit train to these other fabulous freebies!

Backyard Playground ADS Collab kit is here!

Posted by abyscraps on July 1, 2008

The past month has passed in a blur and I haven’t posted a word. I’m a bad, BAD blogger. I’m sorry folks. I hope our HUGE new collab kit will make up for the silence here. So first order of business … my previews …

Backyard Playground papers
Backyard Playground elements
Don’t forget, these are only a tiny part of what the whole kit will be!
Download the papers

Download the elements

Now, are your snaggin’ fingers ready?

Oh, since we are all spread out in different areas and countries, and things in real life sometimes get in the way, please don’t get upset if you follow a link and find nothing there yet or if 4Shared gets cranky from all the downloading. All links should be active for the entire month of July, so you can come back and pick up things you missed later in the month. And PLEASE, leave some thanks or a comment when you download … it will help to encourage us to continue to do this!!!!
Here is the list of all the blogs you need to visit to collect the entire kit:





Crystal (digiscrapalicious)

Crystal (s.amazed)











Kathy (carolinagirl)

Kathy (scraploft)

Popsicle Paradise

Posted by abyscraps on June 1, 2008

OK, the Popsicle Paradise blog train has pulled in to the station!

abyscraps Popsicle Paradise papers

abyscraps Popsicle Paradise elements

First, above are the previews and here are the download links for my part of the Popsicle Paradise mega kit:
download papers and
download elements
This mega kit is brought to you by some of the ADS designers, a group of aspiring digi-scrap designers, some very new like me, and some more seasoned and familiar if you haunt various websites and blogs. Links for many of them can be found in the right-hand column of my blog, and links for all Popsicle Paradise downloads are at the end of this post.
Our palette for the kit is one of sunny, bright popsicle colors. This mega-kit should be great for scrapping any summer photos and lots more. Part of my own contributions came about by thinking of popsicles and how I as a kid I could never eat them fast enough to prevent them from dripping all over me and my surroundings. 🙂 Hence the drippy borders, drip splats, handprints and footprints.
Here is the list of the entire blog train ….
Chantal – sorry, this link is not working right now, I will repost the info as soon as it is corrected!
Crystal – Yes, 2 different Crystals

Enjoy and happy scrapping!
