I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here.
My classes have been GREAT and I have learned so much about Online Marketing. One of the most important things I have learned is that Blogger is out and WordPress is in...
And that is why I am in the process of moving this site to WordPress as we speak. The plan is that the new site will open on October 1st - ready for the BIG holiday = Halloween!
It is actually up an running now but no way near finished. If you are curious you are welcome to drop by. The freebie below is also posted there as a test. The address is:
I wouldn't dream of posting without a freebie so here it is. A pack of cardboard pieces in both original pngs and as abr brushes. Have fun.

My classes will soon be over and then I will focus on getting the new site ready, so I can't promise you a lot of action here. But stay patient and I will get back to you with brand new freebies as soon as possible.

I don't think anyone can be in any doubt that we are in the season of "Back To School". The Scrap World is overfloading with school equipment in bright colours, kid's alphas and funny word art. But surfing around all that, I realized something significant... What if you go back to school as an adult?
The reason for such an interest is simple: Tomorrow I'M GOING BACK TO SCHOOL!
Yes, that's right. OK, it's not "real" school - just a 6 week course, but I found out that if I was ever to have any chance of getting a job in my line of work, I had to catch up with the latest trends and techniques. So I signed up for a course in "Online Marketing". And I think many adults do the same, so since there is no "adult school kits" out there, I decided to make one myself.
Use it, if you are among those who find leaning a life long process, or maybe find inspiration in it to go back to school yourself. It's NEVER too late to LEARN!!!
Age = Experience = Knowledge
As it is a rather large kit, I have split it up in 3 parts, but if you have the connection for it you can also take the full kit in one go. And to spare my limited space on the different storage sites, I have also chosen to upload ONLY to Mediafire - hope it wont cause you problems. You find the download links below the image.
ALL-IN-ONE (80 MB)
I hope you can find use for it - student or not.
For your information: This studying thing will probably make it a little difficult for me to make freebies for you for the next 6 weeks, so don't worry if you don't hear from me. I will, however, do everything I can to find time.
So until next time - LIVE, LOVE, LEARN!

I am now in a much better mood.
I have processed all the negativity and is out on the other side - happy as always. I want to thank you for all you supportive and inspiring comments. They really helped, and I will be back with products for sale soon. I don't know when or how, but I do know that this time it will be "pay up front" :0)
What could be better to celebrate regained happiness, than offering you a free bouquet of fresh tulips?
Today's freebie is a set of patterns, papers and an overlay with lovely tulips. You'll get:
- 4 patterns (PAT) - 3 coloured/1 transparent
- 3 papers (JPG)
- 1 transparent overlay (PNG)
And... as a little bonus I have included a brush in 2 sizes (ABR).
Everything is as usual full size, 300 dpi, and can be used for PU, S4O/S4H and CU.

Stay happy - even when it's hard!

I'm not sure I have the right words to express what I need to express....
Right now I'm feeling a mix of sadness, disappointment and a good deal of anger.
After posting my new products on Everything But Freebies I took an inventory and found out that there were made downloads for $56 and the amount paid for it was...... 0$! And that was only for the new products. All in all products worth 174$ has been downloaded and my total income has been 23$ - That's bad business!
I am not willing to be a fool for my trust in other people so as of 10 minutes ago Everything But Freebies does no longer exist. I have closed the store for good.
To release just some of the anger I feel, I have to ask: "What were you thinking? Did you care at all that what you did was stealing? Did you for one second consider that what you took was something I have spend a lot of time and money making? - I hope that you at least feel a sliver of remorse right now, and if you do you can still use the Donate button here on NbF".
Well, it didn't help much, but maybe time will heal. At the moment I do NOT want to place my trust in other people's honesty, and that's just SAD!
I apologize to - and thank - those of you who have actually used the store as it was meant to.
When the disappointment lifts I might make a new store, but then it will be a regular store where you pay before you get the product.

Among yesterday's new EBF product 4 of them has now been removed from the store and refunds have been given to buyers. Why? Well, I had made the mistake of putting something up for sale without the necessary quality check. I do sincerely apologize.
The products in question are "Vintage DIY Borders", "Vintage DIY Page Borders", "Vintage RTU Borders and "Vintage RTU Page Borders", and the problem is jagged edges.
I do not want to charge for bad products, especially products meant for designers, but I do, however, think that they might be OK to use in a personal layout or something similar. I do, after all, not want them to go to waist, so today I am offering all 4 products as freebies. You are warned about their flaws and can take necessary precautions when using them. I hope they can be of some use for you.

Again - I'm so sorry! But I hope this solution can make some sort of amends.
See you soon.

As mentioned yesterday, I have been busy uploading new products to my Trust Store - Everything But Freebies. And today I finally finished.
Here is a view of the new products in the store. Some are old SIS products and some are brand new. Go browse - I'm sure there is something you'll like....
...and I'm sorry, but I have to say it: "Please remember to pay for your products!"
But since this blog is named Nothing but Freebies, you will of course get free samplers of some of the new products.
Today's free sampler is from "Flourishing Patters". You get the 4 example papers included in the pack. I hope they can inspire you to want to make your own from the original product.

I'll be back very soon with more samplers/add-ons from the new products, so stay tuned.
