Freebies are great resources that you can find in many places to build a library of elements, graphics, and tools. Since they are free, they are available to all.
This week (and in the following weeks), you are encouraged to create freebies from this freebie!
Download these wooden frames and decorate them for the holidays. Use whatever supplies you have, supplies you can create, and embellish those frames. Once you are done, zip the png format and email it to me. I will make a list of all the submitted frames for everyone to download. Use picture tubes, ribbons, flowers, gnomes, elves, ornaments, letter tiles, wooden shapes, etc.
Grab them HERE.
There are 10 different frames you can use so I am sure we will have a wide variety of projects.
What will you make?November 27, 2021 at 7:39 am #68145Sue ThomasParticipant
Wow! We have never had a challenge like this before, well not to my knowledge anyway. I can’t promise I will be able to do all ten, but I will if time permits. Would you prefer us to send them as we do them, or accumulate and then send them in one zipped file?November 27, 2021 at 8:26 am #68146
Yeah, I thought it would be different. And it is up to you if you want to send them as you go or only once you are done. And you don’t HAVE to do all 10 either. It is just to give even more flexibility in the designs.November 27, 2021 at 8:33 am #68147Sue ThomasParticipant
Marvelous! That has cleared that up. I will certainly do 5. Thank you! 🙂November 27, 2021 at 11:05 pm #68247
I was going to ask that, so not to use any we may have on file. I requested them and got a reply asking me to clarify my email, but nothing has happened , I have had this problem before and nothing has arrived . Please tell me what am I doing wrong . thank you xx
Zip file, I have never sent a zip file, how do I do that please xxNovember 27, 2021 at 11:20 pm #68248
Trish, did you create an account on the store blog? If so, you can log in and the link will be there.
For zipping, once you have the file in Windows Explorer, you can right-click on it (or select more than one if you have more), and in the options available through the right-click, there should be one to archive or compress. There is at least one by default with your Windows.December 2, 2021 at 6:17 pm #68489
I have had a go at this frame challenge and produced a result more by accident and playing than deliberate design. I used one of Carole’s frames and a font by signfonts.com – A & S Christmas Script. I used a free image courtesy of GraphicAngel where I removed the background, placed it in a corner and used a plugin Simple, Top Left Mirror. I made a lattice for the sides. I tried to get an embossed look using several techniques which i cannot remember the sequences but kept going until I liked the final result. I used plugins, blend modes etc. Anyhow, I have done one, yay. TFL.

Sheila, can you email me the full-size frame in png format? I can then zip it and make it available for others to download.December 3, 2021 at 6:30 pm #68519
Made another one. Used my own pine and berry graphic and placed on 4 sides of Carole’s frame no 2. I felt it needed to be kept rustic and relatively simple. TFL.December 6, 2021 at 7:39 pm #68690
I have made another one and have used my own graphics and placed on Cass frame no 4. I changed the original colour. TFLDecember 13, 2021 at 2:02 pm #68869
Made this frame this morning using frame 3 and elements from Christmas Wishes kit. I used the Metal Tube picture tube to make the extra beads then changed the color. I couldn’t make them match exactly, but close enough I guess.December 13, 2021 at 2:06 pm #68871
I also made this one using frame 5.
Sheila I love the orange slices and evergreens. Oranges and evergreens were my favorite Christmas smells!December 13, 2021 at 2:32 pm #68880
Frame 2 mitered. I used Christmas in the Wild elements.December 13, 2021 at 3:45 pm #68893December 13, 2021 at 5:08 pm #68894Ann SeeberParticipant
Oh, everyone is making such gorgeous frames! Sheila and Betsy, they are outstanding! I’ll have to look into doing some up, myself. Thanks for the inspiration.December 14, 2021 at 11:13 am #68915Ann SeeberParticipant

All of you are so creative. I just love what you’ve done in this challenge. I’m still hoping to find time to give it a try.December 15, 2021 at 9:03 am #68965
Thank you Betsy and Ann. I love what everyone has done with Carole’s frames, all so different and great imaginations. I think we can give us all a clap on the back for a job well done. xDecember 15, 2021 at 11:55 am #68975
Send me your frames by email, and they might be added as another Day in our Countdown. I have another spot for them (so far, Ann’s and Corrie’s will be added, so send me more!)December 19, 2021 at 9:22 am #69105December 19, 2021 at 11:12 am #69110December 19, 2021 at 11:15 am #69115December 19, 2021 at 11:16 am #69118December 19, 2021 at 11:18 am #69121December 19, 2021 at 11:28 am #69122Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Beautiful work, Trish…and Everyone. Thank you Anne and Corrie for the frames in today’s Countdown gift! Thank you, Everyone for the frames. Thank you, Carole, for all the Countdown gifts. I have been traveling and have not been around much. Internet was often spotty; however, I have managed to pick up the gifts each day…a bright spot in my day for sure. I am home now scrambling to catch up with everything. Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!December 19, 2021 at 3:46 pm #69132Corrie KinkelParticipant
Trish you have been busy, beautiful work on all those frames!
