Autumn Pumpkin Kit

tagger's kitThis freebie is a tagger's sized sample from my larger [full scrapper's sized] kit featured below. Available for download HERE.


The full sized version has papers 3600 X 3600 and other elements in proportion as in my illustration...all at 300dpi.

You can click on the kit illustration to enlarge to get an idea of the detail and texture.
The softer neutral papers and some elements would be just as useful for your heritage photos as for a contemporary design.

The kit is 34MB....and is available free HERE
for a limited period .
Please let me know if you find it useful and I love to see your creations!

Lest We Forget - A Heritage Scrapkit

A little bit of my heart went into these pages which I dedicate to those members of my family who served in our forces and to those others, too, who lost their loved ones.

There are two background pages which coordinate...one a little plainer than the other.

Various other bits and pieces which I thought you might find useful, including some Australian army buttons, an old scrappy lined text block paper, 2 text overlays and a "cardboard" backing suitable for a photo.
Also 2 bookmarks which you could include in a page design or print separately.
I have made these so you can include text or an image to embellish. They are also easy to cut out :) and would look good with an added ribbon or tassle. They are both the same size so you can use the images back to back if you wish. I would use card of about 200gsm and finish your edges with an archival quality gold pen.

Batik Browns Scrapbook Pages

Click to Enlarge These 3600 X 3600 papers, I thought, could be used for heritage or contemporary pages in an album.
They will also match quite well with the pages and elements of my Vintage Batik Kit.. as you can see below.

Vintage Batik Scrapbook Pages

click to enlarge These background pages grew out of another project as so often happens :)

I love the multilayered look of many batik designs, where one pattern overlays another in the process of dyeing the material and it was this look that I was trying to create for a series of papers. These two papers seemed to be the "odd one outs" and took on a life of their own.

Lots of trial and error later, I had put together the other elements.

If you have seen me use these colours before, it is because I find that they suit many of my old photos, both sepia and black and white. Of course you may find they look better recoloured for your project.

The two pages will also form a conntinuous image when placed side by side, a look I rather like in my album.
