Cold weather alert … and here’s your freebie to celebrate it!

We had visitors over from Ireland last weekend and did some sightseeing in the region: Geneva, the Christmas Market in Montreux, some wine tasting at one of our favourite local vineyard. Not only did we have the first snow of the season the day before they arrived but on Saturday an icy cold wind, called La Bise, was blowing around Lake Geneva. It’s a regularly occurring wind but especially in winter it can be fierce. We had a very bad one in 2012 :

It inspired me to create Little Somethings 7 for you. It comes in three parts, which will remain available for download until I upload the next freebie. Enjoy and have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Freebie time! Here is Little Somethings 6 for you

Hey all! I hope you’re having a wonderful fall .. here in Switzerland the colours are turning, the leaves are falling and I just made an appointment with my garage to put the winter tyres on the car, but the temperature is still summery. Frankly, I don’t mind that at all, I’m not a fan of the grey skies that we usually have here in November …

Here’s another freebie for you, with a bit of an autumn feel to it. Have fun with it!

Another Little Something for you …

I like making digital scrapbooking stuff … it’s a way for me to relax after a busy day. Much of it, however, lies around on my hard disk, unfinished and gathering dust, after I became distracted, caught up in work or other things or lost the inspiration. But here’s another freebie that I came across and finished today …. this one’s all about papers, the elements for this freebie are an afterthought really. Enjoy and … thank you for your comments! They’re appreciated!

At last! Another freebie for you …

Hey all, it’s been a while! I finally finished this summery freebie … I better post it before summer’s over!  It’s not really a “little something”, but once I got started, I couldn’t stop. I was happy to do a bit of pixel pushing, I guess …

Digital Scrapbooking Studio – Next Designer Contest 2016

I just barely made it into voting round 3 as I was a couple of hours late posting my submission, but a fairy godmother turned back the clock a little and my submission was entered anyway.  The contest is fun, even though the schedule is quite tight. I guess that’s why it’s a contest eh!

You’ll find the download links (download links expired) in The Studio gallery, the images below are linked, just click on them. And while you’re there: if you like what you see and download, please consider voting for me HERE! Thank you!

Here’s what I submitted for round 2, an element pack:



and here’s my submission for round 3, a selection of alphas. I like doing alphas.


Also check out my post on round 1, the paper pack.


Digital Scrapbooking Studio Next Designer Contest – Round 1

The Digital Scrapbooking Studio Next Designer Contest has started … for round 1 our challenge is to make a paper pack.

If you’d like to see (or download) the wonderful creations that the contestants are coming up with, check out the contest gallery. So far, there’s a nice mixture of styles, it’s lovely to see how everyone interprets the color palette. It’s not obvious, I found, to work with a palette that you didn’t get to pick yourself :-O

If you do visit, please leave some love for the contestants … I’m sure they’ll appreciate the motivational gesture 🙂

Here’s my contribution (the download link link expired for the paper pack is in the image description in the gallery)






Thinking of Dutch licorice made me want to share this alpha freebie …

Hi all! It’s Sunday afternoon, the skies are blue but there’s a fierce wind outside and going outside is not appealing. I was “link-hopping” on the internet and came across a site with Dutch candy. More specifically, candy of the licorice variety, or “drop”, as we know it. The Dutch like their licorice, especially the salty kind. It’s an acquired taste I guess, but it’s one of the things that I long for from time to time, even though we have been living in Switzerland for a long time now. Apparently the Dutch are the number 1 consumers of salty licorice in the world and I’m sure that’s true. I’ve stopped ordering it online because every time the postman brought the goodies in, I couldn’t help myself but scoffing it all down in just about one go.

Looking at the picture of these black & white candies, I remembered I had some cute black & white alpha buttons on my hard disk and thought it would be nice to upload them. After all, it was Digital Scrapbooking Day yesterday. Enjoy!

Freebie: minikit Little Somethings vol. 3

Hello all! Time for a new freebie …. volume 3 of my Little Somethings minikits. I wasn’t sure at all about the colors when I started, but they grew on me. I thought they are kind of “zen”, which I needed after a busy month of back to back short deadline projects.

Be sure to let me know your thoughts about the color scheme in the comments 🙂 Enjoy the freebie!

Freebie: Quebec 2016 paperpack

Last month, we were with friends in Montreal. As this was our first time in Canada, they showed us around Montreal, the city of Quebec and the Charlevoix region. So many things to see, so little time! We returned home with a definite wish to revisit this beautiful country and do some touring. We loved it!

I was thinking about the trip again today and thought it would be fun to do a little paperpack for you, in the colors of the Canadian and Quebec flags but with neutral patterns so you can use the papers for all kinds of other subjects too.

By the way, you’ll notice that the papers have the prefix “Canadia” … That’s not a typo, it’s how we (endearingly) refer to this beautiful country when we speak with our Canadian friends, an insider joke really. I had already uploaded the pack and decided to leave it like that …

Hello all, I hope you’re having a wonderful summer! Here’s another little digiscrap freebie for you …. a minikit in what will probably become a series. I do these when I don’t have a lot of time at hand and I still want to make something for you … Enjoy and thank you for your comments! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a little note if you like my goodies.
