Holly Embellies

Just a tad Victorian around the edges on some of these, I just noticed. They were just too pretty to leave out. I am making them PU, as I'm not sure where they're from. I've had them for years. If anyone knows the source, I would love to know. The stockings are the only un-altered graphics in this set.

You can download this set of Holly Embellies HERE

Christmas Frame

I really like this frame- I'm going to use it in my Christmas letter ! I included the poinsettia tile I used in the download so folks could make whatever else they wanted. Everything shown is included. I've discovered if you click on the image below, you get a close up :-)

The Rest of Home Baked Traditions

I am having the best day. :-0)

And I am so enjoying it. You know- the kind where there's enough oxygen for your brain, the colors are brighter, you actually say the thing you wished you'd said-

the kind where you remember your name ?

That kind of day. Woo hoo - party time for Catt LOL

On that cheery note, here's the rest of Home Baked Traditions. I think I'm rather pleased with the results, and I hope you are, too.

There are a few new elements altogether; the rest are different colors for the bear, cat, ribbons and bows. Oh- an extra paper and the gingham mats.


I think the clip art additions are poular if the download rate is any indication.
They are from

Digi Scrap Kits - Primitive Country Graphics

and they're having an amazing sale to help raise money to save Trina's house.

Check it out!

Trying Something New !

I've added some clip art. I was thinking it would be nice to do a little something new...

so, what do you think?

This is part one of elements- variations on these and new ones next. Not everything is shown. And a CU embroidered ribbon....coming up!

Happiness is having more to post :-)

First Part ofHome Baked Traditions

I have to LOL- somehow I turned my settings to 'Hindi'- so if you noticed any funny squiggles in my last post, mystery solved !

You can get the papers HERE

I don't have a whole kit preview as I'm re-working it a bit as I go along.

I've been doing the monthly challenges at the Yahoo group Scrap Kit Challenge. This kit is based on my October challenge results. Cards and QPs made from the group kits are sold HERE

Thanks for so many encouraging and kind comments. 4 shared has made it complicated to leave comments. If you want to leave a comment on blogger ( which makes my e-mail a happy event :-) ) just click on the word 'comment' at the bottom of this post.

Y'all are great ! It's a pleasure to share things with you- Hugggers- Catt

CU Lace Frame

By the time I'd made my 50th frame for the previous post, I thought "Why should I have all the fun ?" So, here's the template, Color away and combine them to suit YOUR style.

Includes FRAME, LACE OVERLAY, RIBBON, AND CORNER, all in png layers, and of course, PSP/PSD formats.

Got a few things left for All Fall- I will get them out soon.

CU Ruffled Ribbons

Here you go, folks !

Use any way you like- be creative. You can add textures easily. If you have psp or something that lets you adjust layers, try using the greyscale ribbon as an overlay on a pattern layer.


More ALL FALL coming in next post :-)

All Fall Ruffled Ribbons

Coordinating ribbons in solid colors (the dpts are background papers )

Since these are all my design, the CU version of the ribbon is offered NEXT POST.

Sometimes I use random images fron the net in my freebie kits. I don't make the items that include any images of that type CU because of copyright issues. But when it's all mine, it's all yours ! ( For example, the fabric patterns used in quilt #2 are from fabric previews, so I keep that PU and DR only) That's why my kits have very individual TOUs, so be sure and check them .

OK! Download All Fall Ruffled Ribbons HERE

All Fall Papers 2

Just had to have some blue for those last Indian summer days of fall.

This is quilt #2- I think it's my favorite of the bunch. It pre-empted my usual plaid, but they'll sneak in I'm sure.

Download All Fall Papers 2 HERE

A few ribbons and such next post- huggers- Catt

All Fall Papers 1

Finally ! I posted something on this kit. Yay!

I had a major attack of 'designer's remorse' and redid all the papers. I corrected the sizing and fussed with the quilts forever. Now that I'm happy with it, it's all yours :-) .

There are 3 quilts to this kit, and the papers are arranged with each one. This is the first. They all co-ordinate, though.

I'm not much for halloween stuff, so the themes are fall leaves, harvest, and Thanksgiving. I do have a Jack'o'latern...

ALL FALL Preview - last 2 Curliy Ribbons

Here's the last 2 of my CU - they are entirely yours :-)

Download CU 3 HERE

Download CU 4 here

Below is a preview of my ALL FALL kit. This may not be exactly what there will be ( there will be lots more-) just to give you an idea.

I'm beginning to use a few purchased CU items in my kits ( Thank you, thank you! to all my generous donors ) to round them out. It feels like cheating - but on the other hand, I'm thrilled to be able to buy from some awesome designers. I learn so much by studying their stuff- then I make more of my own stuff :-) We all win !

Downloads begin next post.

Thank you so much for all your comments- I still feel that a download in itself is a thank you-and I get huge enjoyment from your shared thoughts, too.

Hugs and God bless- Catt

Cool Summer Nights ELEMENTS

Well, this turned out differently than I expected. In some ways, perhaps, better :-)

Have been struggling with MS stuff, so have been slower than I'd like. Designing has been a real pleasure, tho. I have enjoyed your comments hugely, and appreciated hearing what you liked. I often read your comments, and then have fresh energy to mess around. Thank you !

I have a few autumny things coming up- then I will probably have a last summer rose and lace moment. LOL Each season has it's own glory that we cam frame our memories in..


Lordy, I'm gettin' smarmy.

CU FREEBIE More curly ribbons

These are ribbons I developed while working on Cool Summer Nights. There are 4 altogether- I'll just sprinkle them around in the next several days. The TOU on the ribbons is very simple- do whatever you like with them ! If you make some money with them, please consider donating some here, so I can get cool stuff, too. Regardless, have fun with them.

Enjoy !

Cool Summer Nights QP

I know this is a little backwards, but that's how it goes, I guess :-)

This will be part of a larger kit. It will have some cool colors with a little hot sun- sort of Eastern Oregon. I think this will be kind of random- elements here, papers there- but that's just the way it's showing up. Look for a sprinkling of Designer Resourse items, too.

It's early morning here. My toothless but none-the-less beloved cat is lazily sleeping on my computer. My family is safe , the grape vines are growing and I am typing. Life is good !
I wish you the joy of all your blessings today, whatever they may be.

Last of Popsicle Paradise

This has been very fun.! But I am pooped :-)

A HUGE HUG of appreciation to all of you who have taken the time to go to all the different downloads I ended up with. A better thank you I could not have. I look at every download as a thank you, 'cuz if you didn't like it, why get it?

And for those of you who blessed me with comments, they were the perfect dessert with my tea. I enjoyed them so much! If you ever want a reply, just leave a comment on my blog ( not 4 shared) . The blog comments come to my e-mail and I can answer you.


I have a confession to make- I have no idea what a linen tea mat is. But it sounded so elegant I had to use it. . . . . on my porch, having tea, surrounded by a tropical paradise sunrise, my linen tea mat arranged beautifully on my hand- made lace tablecloth.... Sigh :)

These borders are much nicer close up-they are 12" x 3". Just click on the pic to see a close up .My pewter just can't handle the full size papers.

Sorry for 2 links- big files.
