{Tuesday Tips} Digi Scrapping Freebies

Last week I promised to let you know my favorite places for freebies…  Here you go!

{please note ~ while freebies are a great way to build your ‘stash’ of digi supplies, remember.. these designers have worked hard to create these for your use.  Don’t share them directly or indirectly to others, and share credits and links freely.}

Scrap Layouts/Layered Templates ~ These are great to help you get scrapping quickly.

The Shabby Shoppe’s 2012 Scrapping Challenge ~ a new two page layout each month of the year.

The Shabby Shoppe’s Monthly Easy-as-Pie Scrap Challenge ~ monthly challenge with a layered template

Inspiration and Learning what YOU can do ~ once you see it, you can google how to do it…

The Funky Playground Gallery

The Shabby Shoppe Gallery

Design House Digital’s Gallery

Freebie Sources for Kits and Elements to get you started:

Imagic Reflections ~ amazing amount of fun kits at 800×800 pixles {not print quality}  Play with these until you know what ‘style’ you like, and then buy kits that fit that style.  Rather than buying stuff you won’t end up using.

Design House Digital’s Freebies ~ again… a great way to try something, and see if you like it before investing scads of money or disk space for something you rarely or never use in your scrap pages.

The Blog Train ~ a bi-monthly {every other month} blog hop of different digi designers blogs with freebies at each site.  The freebies are based on a color palatte and theme set ahead of time by the amazing people that organize such a huge event {75 to over 100 blogs}. 

Quality DigiScrap Freebies ~ my favorite person to follow on Pinterest!  This is how I found the Blog Train and keep up to date on what is free over at Design House Digitals.

Delicous Scraps ~ I adore her free element templates, and everything I have purchased from her has been amazing too!

Fonts for Scrapping ~

Fonts for Peas, by Kevin and Amanda ~ Ever wanted to be able to type in your handwriting?  Submit your sample to them to digitize!  Personlly my fav font is Milk and Cereal… I don’t really want my handwriting in my scrapbook, LOL!

You can also download and use fonts off of any free font site.  I have used daFont.com several times, and while it is tedious to look at all the font eye-candy, I like how you can set your text preview to whatever word you want.  Makes all the difference when you are looking for the ‘perfect’ font for your blog title or a signature font.

Looking for how to create something specific… google it {or swagbucks it in my case}.  You will be amazed at how much detailed info is available.  Plus, most of the sites I listed above have forums and tutorials to help you get started or fine tune your scrapbook layouts.

And now so I don’t have a pictureless post…

Here is my ‘re-do’ of All About the Horses page.  I changed up the papers and some of the elements to print quality graphics.

~ About Me ~


I'm Kimberlee, the owner/creater of 'The Spunky Diva'. Here is a little about me... In addition to my love of blogging I adore all crafts, sewing, quilting, improving my non-existent cooking skills, and playing with my two girls. We have a 'collection' of animals around the place to keep us busy; two 'huge' dogs, a cat, kittens, several horses, and assorted wildlife. We live east of Austin, Texas, in the middle of farm country. Here at 'The Spunky Diva' blog I get to share daily life moments, fun crafts, sewing and quilting progress/finishes, and brag about my 'Babies'. Thank you for visiting and sharing some of your day with me!
