Happy DSD to you! ~WARNING: Freebies included~

Digital Scrapbooking Day; DSD, a great opportunity to sit back and reflect on why we embrace this hobby called digital scrapbooking. A day to ponder the legacy we are leaving the next generation with the layouts we so lovingly made with dedication to preserving our memories....

ok FORGET it

We know it is actually all about the spectacular SALES and fabulous FREEBIES around digi land (we'll reflect and ponder and yadda yadda yadda another time).

Thank you for stopping by today! This is one jammed packed post today!
I'm so excited for DSD.
I am participating in TWO blog trains today:

****First is an amazing Fall themed huge collab kit by Sarah Bennett's CT "Home Sweet Home!" ****
****The second is a fabulous template blog train by Valarie Ostrom's CT!

You are definitely in for a treat because both trains are awesome.

For the first train...
Here is the preview of the entire kit that you will end up with if you chug-a-chug-choo-choo through this whole blog train.

plus this adorable quick page will be on one of the stops along the way too

Cute huh?

Here is my portion of the kit

If you want this portion of the collab click, here to download the entire thing it from Media Fire.

It is a pretty big file, so if you want to download it in three separate downloads than grab the solid papers here the pattern papers here, and the elements here.

Before you click to download please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you. Here are other stops along the way on this train~

Next up we have a really fun blog train. Get aboard the template train Woo wooooo! Here is my contribution to this oh so cool blog train...

I made it with psd's AND png's

The template design is made using the layout I did using Valarie Ostrom's cute kit Little Spook.
The layout can be seen bigger in my previous posts.

Again, if you don't see what you are looking for it is probably because someone in a later time zone hasn't posted yet. If that is the case please try back later.

Grab Bag Goodness

Don't forget about Sarah Bennett's super cute, super inexpensive grab bag!!!

The grab bag is $3. You'll get an adorable kit, 2 alphas, a template pack, a date pack, a word art pack... what a deal! There is also a coupon in the grab bag! it is almost like you are getting paid to buy this! I'm not kidding. What a steal! These products are probably $15-$20+ worth of digital scrap stuff plus the coupon. If I wasn't on Sarah's CT I would be be waiting for FPD to release this so I could purchase it... open, open, open.Smileys

Here is the page I did with it. I used one of the templates in the pack, the digi-kit, one of the word strips, and the date pack.

People are making all kinds of pages with this kit- girly pages, boy pages, couple pages- even a puppy page. The pages the other CT members are making are stunning, and yours will be too!

Don't ya just love sales?!!!
Sarah's entire store will be on sale too...
(The grab bag is already a low price, so it won't be half off, but everything else will be.)

50% off is such a great sale!

  7. for some reason media fire keeps timing out for me and i can't download your part of the kit.


  8. Love the colors, textures and the cute pumpkin! Thanks :)

  9. jmutcler: I'm so sorry the download gave you problems. I'm not sure what the problem is. It has been downloaded over 300 times at this point. Thanks for leaving your email address. I'll email you the file. :)

  10. Beautiful portion for the Home Sweet Home collab! Your template is wonderful, too! Thank you!

  11. I really like your part to the kit! The pumpkin is cute. But unable to download mediafire keeps saying this,'The server at is taking too long to respond.'

  12. I edited my post so there are now three separate downloads which will be smaller, and easier to download. I thing individuals with slower connections were having a difficult time getting a large download. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here :)

  13. Thank you So Much for your contribution!! :D

  14. Thank you so much!
