LD Bonus Freebies for September 2014


Happy Day-after-Labor-Day! The kids are back in school and LD has new bonus freebies for us!


Click on the image(s) below to go to the LD site and add the Charmingly Postcards (printables), and the Hello There Owl graphic and cut its (SVG) to your cart and check out. You pay $0! The links to the downloads will show up once the "transaction" is completed.



There is also a free sample alphabet posted on the LD site. Unlike their usual freebie(s), you cannot checkout with the whole alphabet set to get it for free. Instead, you can only download a word or a phrase. Hence a free alphabet sample. (Hint: Use it to make a free title for your scrapbook page!)


To get your Fall Bounty alphabet sample, click HERE to go to the LD site and click on the Try Me Now tool on the top right corner. Enter a word or a phrase in the text box and the preview box will show you how it looks like in the form of the alphabet. If you like the way it looks, you can get the word/phrase as a free sample by clicking on the Save button. Don't forget to change the image to a higher resolution before starting the download. Note that you can only download the word or phrase that you type in the text box for free. Unlike the usual LD freebies, you will be charged for the alphabet if you try to check out with the entire set in your cart.


In addition to the usual monthly bonus, LD is also giving away their new White after Labor Day graphic set and Cut It (SVG):


Once again, to get your files, just click HERE, add both sets to your cart and checkout.

Have fun playing! :-)

Chicken Soup!

Funny how I make a ton of cards and yet I have very few "Get Well" cards on hand. When I saw the Chicken Soup graphic set, I knew exactly what to make with it. ;-)

Nothing says "Get Well Soon!" better than some chicken soup. If I can't send the real thing, the least I can do is to send it as a card.

The above picture shows a screenshot of my Silhouette Studio DE (v2.8.16d <==  yes! I'm still using v2!). The shaped card is mostly print-and-cut. In order to add dimension and make it look less flat, I print-and-cut the chicken and the vegetables separately from the background. I adhered all the layers down using foam tape.

Here's the finished card:

Chicken Soup graphics set
Chicken Soup paper pack (discontinued)
TXT Hoopla font 
Eat Your Veggies graphic set

Bring It On! {Panda Ninja}

LD released the Kicks and Giggles collection on the day before we left for our San Francisco vacation. Even though I managed to finish this card while packing our luggage, the sun set before I was able to take a photo. :-(

What's a girl to do? I packed it with my carry-on and brought it along to California. ;-)

No, I didn't managed to take a picture of the card at all while we were on vacation so I ended up bringing it home anyway. Ha! Anyway, here's a screenshot of my Silhouette Studio (DE). The card base was print-and-cut while the Panda Ninja was pieced together with colored cardstock.

Here's the photo that I finally took of the finished card. :-)
