Mega Freebie Friday!

(If you haven't yet, be sure to check out my previous post for a blog train and minikit freebie!)

Before I get started with the FREEBIE SPAM, I need to catch up on a couple of layouts:
This is my contribution as part of Kaelira's unofficial "CT" for her very first kit ever! Very colorful! You can still snag the kit, Emma's Toybox, and the template used for this page (#19) over at her blog, a few posts back.

kit - Emma's Toybox by Kaelira
template - #19 by Kaelira
font - Tracy (the others were alphas)
actions - tear by Atomic Cupcake

This I made for BAM's first Recipe To Scrap. The requirements (taken from ScrapMatters' October rules) were:
1. Photo (as many as you want.)
2. Frame your photo, but don't use a frame
3. A Shape, any shape
4. Stitching
5. Doodles
6. 1 background paper
7. ribbon (at least 3)
8. word art
I love this photo, not for the high-def quality of it or the "perfect shot" but for the way the sunlight was just glowing off their faces and hair and how you can totally tell he adores the people he's with and that they love to be around him too. ^_^ This was an unusual moment for me, just one little picture. I'm sure I didn't do it justice, I'm no expert with the layering-around-a-photo thing. But I like it. :D

kit - Oh Happy Day by Amanda Resende
actions - cracked paint, rub on, stitches
fonts - Oh {Photo} Shoot, Howser

Then last night we had another speed scrap at BAM. The requirements for the speed scrap were:
1. Pick two pictures
2. Pick 4 papers, to use as you like
3. Use one picture in the background. Extraction, blending mode, as you like. Or play with the opacity.
4. Frame the other picture
5. You may use up to 8 different elements, not including word art or alphas.
6. Include something BLUE! (cuz this is me)
7. Journaling or title must include song lyrics
Ironically, the title of my page rhymes with the name of the kit I used. Subliminal messaging? *lol* I really like how it turned out. I don't mean to sound at all conceited, but it was so cool scrapping with a button I've actually held in my hand, and bows I tied and photographed and extracted, and stitches I took in a piece of plastic canvas. SO STINKIN FUN!

kit - Ready for Sun expansion kit by Kimi's Kreations (see where this is going? keep on reading!!)
actions - wild tear, small tear by Atomic Cupcake
fonts - His Name Is Honey, Goudy Stout
lyrics - "Ready to Run" by the Dixie Chicks (chorus)

And last but not least (for the layouts anyway) is a layout for the Weekly Challenge. The requirements for this one:
1. template by one of the BAM girls
2. graphic by one of the BAM girls
3. something yellow
4. black&white or sepia photo
5. personalize the font that you use in your title
This was a great challenge. I loved using all BAM stuff, and Kasie's template was gorgeous!

template - #3 by Kasie
bg paper and chunky square border - BCC1 Retro Rainbow by Kaelira
orange/green papers, string and star element - Playtime mini and expansion by geniaBeana (expansion to be released this weekend).
font - Goudy Stout, personalized with my own glitter. :)
actions - AC rub on used on date.

So as I mentioned once or twice, I got a little carried away while making things for the Color Challenge. And now that the blog train has left the station, I'm free to release the extras I'll be packing on to the minikit!

BAM-CC1 Ready For Sun Mix and Match Alphas
You may remember these alphas from earlier -- eight alpha sets to mix and match. This time, they've been separated out of their alpha sheets, unlike when I released them before. I also added in a few characters I missed last time.

BAM-CC1 Ready For Sun Expansion Kit
This kit contains 16 papers and 21 unique elements. There are several different versions of some of the elements, but only one of each is included in the count. ;)

I could really use some feedback from this stuff, so let me know what you like, what you don't like, and what you'd like to see in the future! I'm tempted to add more to this but I'll save it for a future kit. *lol* This WAS supposed to be a minikit, after all. And as always, I would LOVE to see your layouts made with this kit, so feel free to send me an email or comment with a link so I can leave you some love! :)

  10. This kit is fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Wow! This is amazing, can't wait to play!

    ~Amy, digiscrap girls

  12. Just amazing, all of it, thanks so much for the freebies and showing your beautiful work.

  13. I love it all. The colors are great and the birds are super cute :)

  14. Super great bright colors, I cant wait to use these.

  15. Wow! what a great kit. Thank you for sharing

  16. I really love the colors and I am into glitter right now. I think its perfect!

  17. Thanks so much for the nice kit. The colors are great, and the papers and the elements are very, very nice.

  18. Wow this is amazing. I love the colors and the elements are so sweet my teeth are singing. Hehe. I can't wait to make a layout with this! But it is so springy and it just snowed yesterday and snowed tomorrow I think I'll have to wait a few days before the sun comes out and I can torment my cats with the outdoors and my camera! When can I take lessons from you?! haha

  19. Excellent color palette - really ZIPS the viewer away from the more drab stuff out there with "summer" titles. Not too much on the element end which keeps the viewer focused on the vibrant feel of the colors. One suggestion - possibly add a bird or other element at either top left or right (not both) coming in to the picture (glitter border) at an angle, pointing down at the landscape -- not an entire element but a enough of a hint of one to draw the viewer from top to bottom - balancing out the composition. Otherwise, fantastic work!

  20. P.S. I'd go with something angled at top left, in line with the flower. Sorry - had to add an afterthought!

  21. Gorgeous as always. Love all of it! THanks for linking to me. ;)

  22. I finally got around to using this kit, and I LOVE it! Used it for a speed scrap, and I was very pleased with it! (wish I had downloaded the fonts ... but I didn't see them until it was too late!) Here's a link.
