The Download-A-Day freebies for my How Sweet It Is kit begins on February 11 but I've posted a couple of extra freebies in the RAK forum at Oh Snap, Let's Scrap.  If you are a member and would like these - hop on over.

OH SNAP LET'S SCRAP is officially open and the celebration begins tomorrow.  As I've mentioned previously, OSLS is a scrapbooking community devoted to Fun, Friendship, and Freebies. Each of the three site administrators - Waite for the Moment Designs (Jan), Designs by Gloria Val Verde (Gloria), and me LilyBelle Designs (Fay) - have created a minikit with the title HOW SWEET IT IS using a common colour palette.  During February we'll be giving parts of each kit away on a daily basis. If you are a member of OSLS you'll find a special forum where you can download the gifts each day.  Gloria will be giving her kit away on February 1 to the 10th.  I'll be posting download links for my kit on February 11th to the 20th.  Jan will provide her gifts from the 21st until the end of the month.  

Drop into the OSLS forum and check it out.  You won't be sorry.    

Here's a peek at what I'll be giving away from the 11th to the 20th.

During the month I'll also be giving away quickpages, clusters, etc. to participants of challenges and as outright RAKs to members of OSLS.  

If you are a subscriber to the OSLS newsletter, you'll find this cluster made from my How Sweet It Is as a free download.

And for the readers of this blog, please download these extra papers and a two-frame cluster with and without word art.

The Ivy Scraps site where I've spent most of my scrapbooking time these past few years has closed BUT there is a new site where all our Ivy Scraps friends can gather.  The grand opening is not until February 1st but there's lots happening there already.

As you can read from the above, OSLS is all about FREEBIES and scrapping FUN.  There is no store so no promotions to buy this or that.  All freebies are available to members only and to encourage enrollment during January (There'll be more freebies - many more - in February!!!) I've designed the following kit which you can download in the forum after becoming an OSLS member. 

Jan, (Waite for the Moment Designs) also has this kit available for free download during the month of January.  You can see by the label on the preview that it was available to only the Color Challenge participants.  But that was at the old site - Ivy Scraps - and she decided to give it to all new members at OSLS during January. 

We have many challenges already up and running so if you register during January, then you will have the opportunity to download many more freebies.  Here are a few samples ...

... and these are just a few of the designs I did.  Come visit us and see for yourself.  Don't be discouraged by the fact that the OSLS forum and gallery still need a few tweaks.  Everything will be shipshape by February 1st.

We're celebrating Ivy Scraps 6th anniversary.  Each designer at Ivy Scraps created a kit with a Home for the Holidays theme which will be given away to our members during November.  This is the kit that I designed and which will be available in three parts for free download through the Download-A-Day event.  You can collect this kit in the D-A-D thread in the Birthday forum on November 1, 5, and 10. 

You'll also find this quickpage on Ivy's Facebook page ...
If you subscribe to Ivy's newsletter, you'll find this to download ...
On Ivy's blog you'll find this set of Word Art ...
If you participate in the November Calendar and ATC challenges, hosted by Bernie, you'll be rewarded with these papers and clusters ... 
And since you're here you might like to download these papers, decorative overlay ornaments, and these double-page quickpages in three size formats for December 24th and 25th ...

You’ll find this all-paper (digital paper, of course ) in Ivy’s store for just $1.  There are 37 elements and 12 background papers as shown in the previews below.

I’ve made a set of clusters from the kit just for my blog readers.  You can download these clusters by clicking the preview or DOWNLOAD below the preview.

For those of you who have been collecting all the parts of TRUE PATRIOT LOVE since its release in 2012 …

I have another free add-on.  There are two papers and each paper is included as a bold pattern and again with a grungy, faded effect.  There are six paper strips with themed words and three blank paper strips – small, medium, and long length – so that you can add personal journaling strips. 

The original kit (elements, papers, and clusters) is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
