Eclectic World Alpha Freebie and Layout

>> Friday, June 26, 2009

It's a Friday here in my part of the world (although this post will be out later so it may be a Friday in yours too!), the weekend is upon us again, hooray! I promised myself to work on my new kit freebie over the weekend. I finally was able to transfer some files onto DVDRs (that will do...for now), at least it gives me some space to scrap some more. Last night, I tried to open up my Adobe Illustrator to learn it through practice. I used a tutorial on how to make a cute vector monster, this was posted at Blog.SpoonGraphics (love that site! so informative). The tutorial seemed pretty basic but for someone trying Illustrator for the first time, it was pretty frustrating. I guess I'm not familiar yet will all the tools. I only got up to making the circular portions and was really stumped when it came to using the direct selection tool to cut out the portions I did not need. I kept searching and searching Google for instructions - to no avail. I wonder what I'm doing wrong? I'm pretty sure its so simple, geesh, makes me feel stupid, haha! So now, I have to open my book (should have done that in the first place!).

I'm trying to learn Illustrator because my next kit has got lots of monsters in it! The nice, cute ones though. My son Enzo loves to draw too, and he is helping me out, he drew most of the monsters and I'm in charge of creating the vector versions and bringing it to life. This will be fun! No previews yet though - its all in the rough sketch stage at the moment.

I have another freebie today, its the matching alpha for the Eclectic World kit.


Someone sent me a layout using my kit!!! Suzie (aka phychozoe) thank you for sending me your layout, I love it!!! I am grateful to you for taking the time to do so.

Here is the L/O by Suzie, her dog's name is Chiquita and her shirt says 'Queen of the Dog Park" LOL! What a great L/O!

Here is the D/L link to the freebie for sending me your L/O, it's password protected and the password has been sent through your email:

It's so sad, I have so many downloads for my Eclectic World Kit, but only got 2 thank you's. Only two out of hundreds who downloaded. It really would be nice to hear some thanks. :(

To Creative Busy Hands Scrapbook Freebies Search and DigiFree, thank you for posting my freebie on your sites!

Some words of encouragement would be nice! And your L/O's even better. You may still send them to me at and I will give you the password to the notepaper alpha freebie.

Do subscribe to or follow my blog so you can get notifications of any freebies that will be available.

About This Blog

All about me, my musings, ramblings, fancies, quirks and dreams; the blessings in my life - the kids and their growing years; and my love for digital scrapbooking/design and graphic arts; and my eternal quest to keep learning something new each day and give back in my little way.

This blog used to be 3 blogs which I decided to merge together, my scrapping blog (Pandoras Box of Thought), the blog about my kids (Beyond the Four Walls) and my cooking/recipe blog (Cooking Mama) - all the old posts are still up but I've decided to just post everything in the future in one forum, with all the things I'm doing, I'd like to keep everything in one neat container :)
