Christmas freebie kit layout contest: $25, $15 and $10 voucher to win!

Will you be one of 3 winners of my Christmas freebie kit layout contest and receive a $25, $15 or $10 gift voucher for your favorite digiscrap store?

2014 Christmas Layout Contest digidesigned byWilma

It’s very easy to enter the contest:

  1. Download the 4 parts of my 2014 Christmas freebie kit (part 1 here, part 2 here. In addition, you can also use the coordinating flairs or cards if you wish, or even the iced cookies, but the majority of your layout should use items from the Christmas kit).
  2. Make a layout with this kit.
  3. Go to my Facebook Page and upload your LO in a comment under the post announcing the  “LAYOUT CONTEST”.

I am looking forward to see your layouts!

How are the winners selected?

Terms and Conditions

    You must use my 2014 Christmas freebie kit for your layout.
    Upload your layout in a comment below the Layout Contest post on my Facebook page.
    Be a sport and vote for a layout, by “liking” that comment. Please, don’t like your own comment/layout.
    To make this contest as fun, interesting and worthwhile as possible, at least 20 people must post a layout. I reserve the right to declare the contest void if there are less than 20 posters.

How are the winners selected?

To make the contest as honest and fair as possible, the winners will be selected as follows:

    A jury of  2-3 people (myself and 1-2 non-participants, either not related to my digiscrapping activities or currently not active in digiscrapping) who will select the 3 winners for the $25, $15 and $10 voucher from the 10 entries with the most votes/likes.
    For all entries with at least 5 votes (with the exception of the winners of the gift vouchers), a random draw will be made (so latecomers to the contest have a fair chance also). This entry will receive a surprise prize.


Special thanks to The Urban Fairy and Mad Genius Designs:



Coming soon … your layout could win one of three prizes

Coming soon …. the chance to win a $25, $15 or $10 voucher from your favorite digiscrap store in my Christmas freebie kit layout contest!

Your layout with the Christmas freebie kit (part 1 and part 2) could win you one of the three digiscrap store gift vouchers ($25, $15 and $10) I’ll give out as prizes. And as I’m not affiliated to any store you’ll get to pick your favorite one. How nice is that!

Keep an eye out for the official announcement here on my blog and on my Facebook page and join the fun!


It’s got even BIGGER … and it’s still free!

First of all … a big thank you to all of you who were kind enough to leave a comment on my blog and/or Facebook page after downloading part 1 of my Christmas freebie. Your words are very much appreciated and are an encouragement to come up with even more freebies for you in future. THANK YOU!

It’s been a bit of a race against the clock to get part 2 online for you before Christmas, but here it is! I hope you’ll have much fun with this kit, it was made with love (and boy, did I enjoy doing a bit of designing after a busy year!). Keep your eyes out for the upcoming layout challenge with this kit too!

To all … a very merry Christmas, happy holidays to you and yours and may the New Year bring you good things in every aspect.

It’s BIG …. and it’s a freebie!

Wow …. what was meant to be a freebie mini with a couple of papers and elements turned into a megakit! I guess I got carried away … it’s not even finished yet, I’m still finalizing the elements pack (it looks there’ll be close to 100 elements) but a client needed help pronto today. But since the papers and alpha are finished, let’s start with that and I’ll upload the elements tomorrow. And guess what … I’ll have a little layout contest with this kit so you’ll have another chance to win vouchers for your favorite digiscrap store! How much fun is that!

Here we go …. the Alpha pack:

I went for a traditional Christmas color palette for this kit. I do love alternative color schemes for Christmas, but this year I’m all traditional. The kit coordinates with my earlier Christmas freebies: Christmas Flairs and Christmas Journaling/Filler Cards. And if you like Christmas cookies, then check out the Iced Christmas Cookies freebie.

And here are the papers, all 17 of them (some minikit eh!):

Freebies from LouCee Creations and Studio4 Designworks and more …

Doing the rounds today, I came across these goodies and thought I’d share with you … If you like and download, leave a little thank you for the designers,  it’ll be very much appreciated.

A  lovely freebie by LouCee Creations over on her blog: When Sheperds Washed Their Socks. You’d want to download it just for the name :-) It’s a wink to a popular Christmas carol in the UK. Lou’s freebie is part of the Studio Christmas Carol blog train so you’ll find links to other goodies there too.


Another stop in the Studio Christmas Carol blog train is at Studio4 Designworks. Check out that fab freebie!


And here’s another stop in the Christmas Carol blog train: Mad Genius Designs with her Blue Christmas freebie. Check out her other Christmas freebies too before they expire!




Freebie – Christmas Cards

I’ve just come back from a fabulous trip to Belfast, Northern Ireland for a pre-Christmas visit with family and friends. It was great to see everyone again since my last trip there in April this year, even though we had to cram in a lot in those short 4,5 days! It always takes a day or so to get back in the swing of things after those flash trips so I had a relaxing morning with Photoshop and made you a little freebie: 10 3×4″ journaling/filler cards for your Christmassy layouts. There’s also 2 printable pdf’s in the zip file (I sized them so you can print them both on Letter and A4 paper). Enjoy!

Freebie – Layered Flair Template

If you like my freebie Christmas Flairs, but you’d rather make your own flairs, here is a layered flair template for you. The template has separate layers for color fill, pattern fill, layer to insert your own art, glossy top layer, drop shadow, instructions, well – everything you need to make your own flairs. You can use the finished flairs you make with this template in any way you’d like: use them on your own layouts, give them away or sell them. The layered template, however, is for your own personal use. Enjoy!

Freebie – Christmas Flairs

Here’s another goodie for you … 9 flairs in my favorite Christmas colors to decorate your layouts. Enjoy!
