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.
Let’s see how you can use some fun free elements in your next graphics projects.
This is a fun alphabet. Everything is in greyscale so you can colorize the letters however you want to match your project. Click on the image to reach the blog (you will have to scroll almost to the bottom).
Are you up to the challenge? Post your projects in this thread or, if you want, our PSP Scrapbook Showcase pinboard on Pinterest is always there to showcase what is being shared in the Campus (if you need an invite, let me know). Or you can post it in our Facebook group.September 5, 2021 at 7:42 am #63483Ann SeeberParticipant
Cassel: The graphic for the freebie didn’t display on my MS Edge browser but I clicked on the “broken” icon and it opened up so I did get the “freebie” after scrolling all the way to the bottom. Just afraid it might discourage others from the download.September 5, 2021 at 10:13 am #63485
Thanks for pointing that out. I will fix it again. It seems to have the graphics vanish after a while when I schedule the posts ahead of time!September 5, 2021 at 10:20 am #63487Rene MarkerParticipant
FYI: The graphic showed up fine for me after it posted yesterday on MS Edge.September 7, 2021 at 7:01 am #63626
It downloaded fine for me now. Thanks for fixing.September 11, 2021 at 5:10 pm #64110
I have been working on this one for days. After a very bad July and August we now have lovely weather and I wanted to enjoy that as much as possible before we are heading into Autumn. And of course the BIG 10 has kept me busy too. This is all made from the photos I took on a daytrip to the heath. The background is a plaid made from a little part of the photo. Then the photo itself with a heavy blur. The other 2 photos of the cows have slipped in edges, a technique I wanted to try out. For the title I used the freebie and gave the letters colors from the photo. I made a template for the arrow and use a part of it with different colors and an inner bevel. The texts are in a Line Pattern by Carole.September 12, 2021 at 4:04 am #64152
Nicely done, Corrie. You used so many different techniques to achieve your result. And I love the color scheme.September 12, 2021 at 5:34 am #64154Sheila HoggParticipant
Just to say that Malware Bytes wouldn’t let me download this.September 12, 2021 at 7:51 am #64156
Sheila, are you able to bypass Malware Byte? Sometimes, they are overzealous as programs!September 12, 2021 at 12:04 pm #64213Rene MarkerParticipant
Sheila I have downloaded many items from that designer’s blog (actually have many of her kits from the stores she has sold at over the years) and have never had a problem with a virus or malware.September 12, 2021 at 5:50 pm #64289
Thank you Michele, the color scheme was more or less dictated by the colors of the heather and I used it throughout the page. Working on a page for days is really not my kind of scrapping. I stop working, come back the next day and have to rethink what I was trying to do, but in the end I have something to show.September 15, 2021 at 4:32 pm #64491Marie-ClaireParticipant
-A picture of a butterfly I took early this week during a walk with my dog Poncho.
-a mask made with the script maskmaker from Carole
-Background layer filled with a gradient made with colors of the butterfly
-duplicated and on this second layer , effects – artistic effects – enamel, and opacity of the layer at 30
-2 freebie watercolor borders left and right
-made a frame and also used the color of the butterfly
-and the freebee watercolor alpha
Lots of colors!
for some reason something goes wrong with the frame when resizing to 600 pix.September 16, 2021 at 5:07 am #64551
Very pretty, Marie-Claire. Is your original image square? If not, try resizing the longest side to 600 with a locked aspect ratio.September 16, 2021 at 6:28 am #64557CristinaParticipant
Corrie, very nice layout, and I also like how you did the background… I love the quote: “Expect nothing, appreciate everything.”… My motto in life.
Marie-Claire, very nice layout, and I also like the colors…I like very much how you created the background, never tried this technique… I’ll take note of this technique. 🙂 … I don’t see anything wrong with the frame; what is different when you resize to 600?
Sheila, I have known Kristin Aagard Designs for many years, downloaded many freebies, kits, and Norton Antivirus has never had a problem with the site… Now, her work can be found at a very known site, The Lilypad.

Cristina, thank you and the quote is one that can be used on almost anything!
Marie-Claire, that is a very lovely background and a nice photo too!September 17, 2021 at 2:00 pm #64626Marie-ClaireParticipant
Thank you Corrie and Christina.
Christina on the image resized to 600pix, it’s like the frame is jagged. The frame is rectangular and the proportions are ok. It’s a bit hard to explain what I mean, but with the un-resized version everything is ok. 🙂September 22, 2021 at 12:53 pm #64848Sheila HoggParticipant
Thank all for your help. I did manage to bypass and download the freebie. Just got to think of a way to use them now.
