Somerset Studio Artists' Papers

Hello My Crafty Friends!!
Coming up is the Memorial Day holiday weekend and I do hope that you have a safe and happy one. 

May we never forget the sacrifice that was made for our freedom in this country!!

While we are going through this "bump in the road" right now, I have been trying to use things that I already have (and have discovered that to be quite a bit) to make my projects. So I dug out some Somerset Studio magazine and went to tearing out some of the artists's papers and fussing cutting my desired images. Here's what I came up with"

From The Heart

Hello my crafty friends!!
I hope that you are all staying safe in this very difficult and uncertain time.
I personally see how my workplace is being affected by the COVID 19 virus. It's an uncertainty everyday how many hours I will get to work. I know that there are so many that have already been laid off and stressing. With that said, I decided even though I cannot do anything about this situation, I can try to spread a little crafting cheer.
So, over the next couple of weeks I will periodically post some FREE downloads for you that are copyright free images. Below are a few and I hope that you will enjoy them!

Grungy Is My Favorite Thing To Do!!

Hello my crafty friends!!
The weekend has been so beautiful here in Missouri!! I spent the entire day Friday thrifting in the 
St. Louis area and WOW, what a great day of finds!! I will be adding my new found treasures to the shop little at a time over the next few weeks.
I did manage to finish up a couple of journals this past week. I made a really grungy one that I absolutely LOVE along with 3 altered mini comp books. I do believe that grunge is my favorite thing to do!! I also played with the new collection from Authentique called "Imagine" which has a fantastic mixed media flare to it. Below is the video for a peek. TFW!!

Valentine's Digital Freebie

Hello my crafty friends!!
I hope that your weekend has been FANTASTIC so far. It has been a cold, wet and windy one here in my neck of the woods. I did manage to go out yesterday and drive down to my favorite scrapbook store in Branson, Mo. I was looking for the new calendar paper collection from Authentique. They had in stock, but it was "buy by the individual months" instead of the "mega paper pad" which includes all 12 months in the pack. It was too expensive to purchase individually so I'll just have order the mega pad online. I did manage to find a couple of other fun paper collections while I was there. That made the drive worth it!!
I have a fun Valentine's FREEBIE for you. Just click on the collage tag sheet to download. Prints out on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper.
YOU MAY NOT resell this image as your own or as any part of a kit. You may however use this collage sheet in any craft project for resell.
