There is a yahoo group called blog freebies that is for scrapbook artists to say when they post freebies. Not sure if its blog freebies or blogfreebies, but a search at yahoo groups will find it. There are literally tons of free digitals out there.

WHERE? I use Copernic Agent Basic, the free one, and searched for Katrina, er, I mean, Scap Booking on the Internet. LOTS of commercial sites, but nearly all had something for free. I'm a researcher, so I researched. LOL.

Wow Dae, for an initial effort that is quite stunning! For an old hand at it it' s also quite stunning. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Katrina, can we start a new discussion where we can post some free kits and elements and where they are available. Not the commercial sites for digital scrapbooking but freebies. I posted one last week has anyone found the blog?
Pewter7 is the blog. Have fun hunting but that is one of our favorite parts of this hobby.

I agree with Sherri, great layout, is it digital? I'd be interested to know where you found the elements too!
Comment by Sherri Thornton on July 26, 2009 at 12:03am
Why can't I find some of those great elements??
Comment by Sherri Thornton on July 26, 2009 at 12:01am
