Welcome to A Piece of Scrap!!!

This is my freebie blog!! Hopefully I will be posting lots of freebies, although most likely not very regularly. Sometimes I am very inspired and come up with a lot, and other times not so much. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee...and let the good times roll!

Rise and Shine Tuesday!!!

Well, I felt like it was time for another freebie!!! But first, let me tell everyone about a little sale called the Fantastic Five!!! Five days, five designers, 5 kits, 50% off!!! Does that sound good? For 5 days only, at Just For The Scrap of It!!

So there is that! I've been working on a new kit for what seems like forever now, and it's just amazing how much life can get in the way! I've gotten back into crocheting, and now I'm learning to knit. I guess I am a crafty person lol. There's just nothing like seeing a work in progress and then finishing it. But all the new crafts have kept me from designing and scrapbooking...and I really need to get caught up with my CT! Hopefully I can work on a few LOs today!

Well, today is the first day for Babette's RIse and Shine Chat. It's at 10 a.m. EST (which would be 7 a.m. Pacific) at the justforthescrapofit.net chat room I'm going to be there, so if you want to have tons of early morning fun with me, you should be there!!

Here's the ad for the chat:

Alright, I've blabbed on enough. Here is todays freebie!! It's called Reading, 'Riting, and Rowdy Boys.

Well that's it from me! I hope everyone has a GREAT day and I hope to see you at the Rise and Shine chat!!!

okay so it's been awhile

Yes, I know, I have been lazy and have not even updated my blog in forever!! But bear with me because I have SO SO SO much to share.

First of all, I am re-releasing all my kits from the contest at Just For The Scrap of It! After the contest all the links we're removed, and they were vaulted, but I am going to be posting them again. I am going to do them one at a time, because well...I just want more visitors lol. So I think I will just go in order, and today I will release the vintage heritage freebie kit!! Keep an eye out for it...it will be closer to the end of the post!!

While I am on the subject of kits, my very very first kit at Just For The Scrap of It is FINALLY IN THE STORE!!!! Yes, that's right, I am now a designer at Just For The Scrap of It!!!!!!!

Here's a quick sneak peak of the kit:

Included in the kit are:
17 papers
8 ribbons/bows
3 funky shapes
1 tag
4 notecards
4 journaling
7 frames
3 doodles
6 buttons
3 brads
1 laced ribbon
3 word stamps

And since I am feeling really really generous today, I am also going to post the free quick page that I made with the kit!!!! It will just give you a little taste of what's involved...

That Retro Feeling Quick Page

And the best part is, JFTSOI is having a STORE WIDE SALE!!! Can you believe it, 50% off ALL products on Friday November 23 and Saterday November 24....aww heck, just look at the beautiful AD made by Babette!

There are so many new designers and a million new beautiful and amazing kits. I encourage everyone to go and have a quick look!!!

Well, it's just about time for me to go finish up Thanksgiving dinner, so here is the freebie I promised for today!!! Enjoy!! There are 2 download links, so be sure to get them both!!!

Download 1 (or click on image): Vintage Heritage Papers
Download 2: Vintage Heritage Elements

There are 6 papers, 2 frames, 2 ribbons (1 lace, 1 satin), 2 buttons, 2 tags...and I believe that's all of it!!


I also wanted to throw this out there. It is so very important to always remember what we are thankful for, not just on T-day, but everyday. It's so easy to lose track of what is important. I am so thankful for my husband, my son, my family, and my savior. God bless everyone on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day!!

freebies and LOs and more!!

Well DS and I went out of town over the weekend. We were visiting my husbands Aunt and Uncle. They have a son that is about the same age as DS, so we always have a lot of fun with them. We went to Seaworld and had a blast! I'm sure there will be plenty of LOs using those pictures coming up soon...

But for now, I'm just going to share a LO from DS's 1st birthday. This is called Present Time, and it's done with Kylie Moore's Tied Up with String kit, which can be found at nuts4digi.com


Gotta love the intensity in his face!

Allright, now onto the freebie! This is the last and final round of the So You Think You Can Design contest at Just for the Scrap of It! So, don't miss your last chance to get a bunch of free kits! This week's challenge was to use Van Gogh's Starry night as inspiration. Here is my kit:

Have a wonderufl day everyone! I am off to crochet for awhile and take a break from my computer!

Have a SUPER fabulous day everyone!!

Another friday

Yup, it's friday again. I like fridays because I get to meet with a group of church mommies, and we sit and talk and the kids play. It's just so cool to get out like that.

I finished my kit for the third round of the JFTSOI So You Think You Can Design? contest. It won't be released until Sunday night, so I can't post anything yet. And I am going to be out of town, so I might not even post about it until late. But you can go to http://www.justforthescrapofit.net and keep an eye on the gallery. It's password protected until Sunday night.

I will be posted a small freebie add on to that kit as well...probably monday or tuesday. It's not as small as the last one, lol. Just some stuff that I wasn't able to include in the kit.

Well, anyway, that's about it. I don't have any new LOs or anything to share really. Just been working my butt off getting that kit finished!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

just occurred to me...

that i never posted the link to the voting section! Silly, right?

So anyone who wants to vote in the Just for the Scrap of It, "So you think you can design...?" contest, go to this link:


Decide who's you like the best, and then vote for them!

Mine is about halfway down, or halfway up for those of you who do things backwards.

I'm not so sure that I will make it to the next round...which sucks because I am about halfway done with the kit for the next round! I'm having a lot of fun with it too. You know how you think of things and sometimes they work and sometimes they dont? Well, it just seems like most of those things are working today!! I guess even if I don't make it to the next round I will have to finish it.

On another note...here is the preview to my first kit for sale!! I am sooo excited about this cute little kit. It's all bright colors, mostly primary (red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple) and it's just fun fun fun!!

ANd I know that I promised a sampler freebie, and I swear I am working on it. This round 3 kit has got me all up in bunches....but, the longer it takes me, the better it will be (ha!!).

And, I am already tinkering around with a new kit...hmm...sounds interesting? Well, come back at a later date, and you will be able to see!!
Well, I'm cutting this short. DS has given me his cold, and then he busted my lip this morning (isn't he sweet?).
