I am so excited about the freebie for today. Partly because it is parts of a new kit that I will be premiering soon at Scraphead, and partly because it has been so fun to make! Given that the 4th of July is this week, I thought of all things I could about the 4th of July and I decided that baseball is something very American and traditional. I remember going to many Pittsburgh Pirate games on the 4th and then sticking around afterwards for the fireworks and I remember playing in many family softball games down at the Blackridge playground on the 4th of July growing up. So I decided to do my first exclusive kit for Scraphead, one of my new venues, with the theme being vintage baseball.
Now, don't let vintage fool you because there is something in it for everyone! Since I grew up in Pittsburgh, there will be Pittsburgh Pirate stuff in it. Since 3/4 of my family are Red Sox fans, there are Red Sox things in it. And since my husband is the lone Yankee fan in the family, there is some Yankee stuff, too. Last night he asked me why anyone would want to buy a kit that as the Red Sox and the Yankees in it. Well, we'll see if people buy it! But I think it is fun to have them both in the kit. It is a great kit for 4th of July layouts, little league games, baseball layouts, etc. It will be available exclusively at Scraphead starting July 4th so make sure you check it out (there is a coupon included with the freebie so you can get it at a discount through August 4th)!
So, without further gabbing, here is the preview for the freebie today, it is a sit of six frames---3 of which are decorated with elements from the new kit that I am calling "Play Ball!"
Did you just click on the image and it didn't send you to 4shared? Well, surprise, I'm doing it different this week!!! Since this freebie goes with the "Play Ball!" kit that will be exclusive to Scraphead, you must go to the Scraphead homepage. You can snag this freebie by simply clicking on the FREEBIE button on the bottom right and then simply download it from the gallery. If you download, please leave the comments here on my blog since I won't have access to comments like normal with 4shared. Thanks!
Now, onto other things. Coming up July 6th, 7th and 8th is the Grab Bag sale at Divine Digital and you need to get my grab bag! I just love grab bags. I know some designers are against the whole idea, thinking it diminishes the productivity (a lot of people think freebies do, too!), but I just love making them and love getting feedback from scrappers who purchase my grab bags. I'll be posting here right before the sale with a link to my grab bag so make sure you check back. And you want to check back on the 4th of July for another patriotic freebie!
Now, onto some housekeeping issues.....if this is repetative because you are on my email list, sorry! But a designer has to do what a designer has to do:
I just posted a great challenge on the Divine Digital website for my weekly photography challenge, "Ready! Set! Shoot!" Here is the link and the freebies are going to awesome---one freebie for each layout you post:
At Divine Digital we're also coming out with another Mega Kit and the theme is "Christmas Fantasy." My stuff is already done and uploaded and I can't wait to see what the other designers create with this theme. And the colors are fantastic! The kit will be released mid-July and I'll let you know either by my weekly email or my blog. I'm also running a photo contest, a trivia chat and a challenge---all of which come with either freebies or a gift certificate, so make sure you participate---it will be loads of "jolly" fun!
All my kits at ScrapProfessor are 25% off right now so head on over there, too and snag a deal.
At Moo Two Designs, one of my new homes, we're going to be releasing a really fun July Mega Kit, "Leather Dude." If you are a "hog" or know someone who is, this is a kit you don't want to be without. I'll be letting you know when the kit is released. Also, just like my other new stores, my stuff is 25% off for a limited time.
Now that the housekeeping issues are done, I leave with some of my latest photos--some are kids I've photographed lately via my photography business and some are my boys:
Have a great weekend,
