My first blog surprise and a freebie...

Just got the internet connection fixed today... for the second time. *sigh* hoping there'd be no third soon. Hehehe... I was with no net for 4 days, just as I finished my latest littlekit. Well anyways, here it is. I was so into pen tablet these days and up to now I am still praying and hoping Kim would buy me. I was eyeing for Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen+Touch but it's soooooo expensive (super!!!). So, I have to convince myself to settle for Genius G-Pen 4500 (it's much, much cheaper). Wacom is 4x the price of Genius... but I soooo love Wacom.

Because I've been wanting to doodle and I still didn't have pen tablet, I just doodle on papers and created handrawn elements (mostly flowers and frames). I scanned them and edited in Photoshop. Hehehe... That's how I came up with this littlekit. I don't know if you're going to like it since I'm not really good in freehand drawing. Hehehe.... Thank you if you like it and always feel free to download them (just leave some love on the comments section or shoutmix, it's much appreciated). Also, I was inspired by Valerie's doodles. She's so good at it. Visit her blog and get inspired as well with her layouts and freebies. I hope to enhance my skill in creating digital scrapbooking kits and really improve on what I now considered as my craft. :D

Paper Element

And as for a little surprise here. I'd like to give this add-on freehand drawn frames to the first 20 to comment here and do tell me if you like my designs or if I really need more improvement. It's okay to be honest, I think I need some criticism to improve. Well, these freehand drawn frames are not as good as like the other designer's freehand drawings and they are not perfectly hand drawn (you can see plenty of crooked lines and bumps) but they are drawn with love and happiness. These are freehand drawn frames which you can recolor according to your taste and even convert it into stamp. I specially like the frames with flower pot on the side (it was the first frame I drew). These fits well with my Free Spirit littlekit and if you would like to have them just leave your comment and e-mail here. I'll have this little surprise until next week Wednesday, November 18, 11:59pm Dubai Time (+4GMT).

Here's a layout from me using this littlekit. Please send me a link to your layouts if you're using my kit. Thank you for appreciating them... thank you. This is a simple layout of my husband Kim and eldest son Markus playing ball at the park a couple of weekend ago.

Until then, keep on visiting my blog. Thank you for looking.

Have a good weekend ahead.

:D

i admire your patience with digiscrapping grid, and very artistic and creative at it too! i tend to be distracted most of the time. i love your freebies! this one is very vibrant. will try to make and post some layout nya.

re crooked lines, they say that is the beauty of freehand. so don't sweat on the small stuff....i'm sure i will be seeing more great stuff from you.(especially if kim buys you the PEN!) crossing my fingers for you. take care!

I do really like your design style. It is clean and crisp. You can't please everyone. Stay true to your own style. And thanks for your offer. scrapsalatte at gmail.com

Hello Ing, I've only just come across your blog, but I'll be coming back to catch you often. You have a great talent - your templates are really beautiful and all your papers and doodles are funky and so much fun! Thank you for sharing with us. I know I'm commenting on an older post, but I did so love your doodle frames, especially the flower pot and the blue frame with the mosaic. I'd love to have them if you were still giving them out.

I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of your boys too - they grow quick, don't they? Have a great 2010
