Freebie Snowflake Christmas Card

Hi everyone,

Sorry it's been so long since my last post but I have been busy trying to do some new designs for my Design Store as well as trying to get my own Christmas cards made and written. I got so many lovely comments from you wishing me well in my new venture so thank you for that, I really appreciate it and so far everything is going well.

This is the freebie I have for you today

I cut the base card from 250gsm card stock but the circle of snowflakes is quite delicate so I used 160 gsm card for that and it cut beautifully although I would recommend a sharp blade and take care when removing from mat !!

Important changes to my Website and a freebie Flower pop out card

Hi everyone,

Before I get on to the freebie I just want to let my customers know that I have made the decision to wind down my website. The main reasons for this is that a) it needs a major update  to make it more compatible with mobile devices and b) most people are looking for instant downloads these days and I have neither the time or expertise to do that myself. As I don't want to give up designing altogether I applied and have been accepted to become a Designer at craftsUprint. I have my own Shop there and am just starting to upload some of my designs. As a result of this after the 31st October it will not be possible to purchase files from my Shirley's Cards website and I shall also be retiring quite a lot of my older files so if there are any that you may want to purchase please do it before the 31st. I feel this will be a better arrangement all round as I shan't be as tied to my PC in the way I am know due to having to do email sales and maintenance plus I hope the ability to have direct downloads will benefit my customers. The downside is that I have to pay craftsUprint for the privilege but I am happy to do that. Also they do have a minimum purchase policy for anyone buying files but with so many talented designers to choose from I hope that won't be too much of a problem for anyone.

My blog and facebook page will remain as now and I will continue to share freebies with you,

Anyway, enough of all that, here is the freebie I have for you today. I have called it a popout card as the main part of the cut out design stands up from the fold of the card, it comes complete with the insert to add some colour. It is a card that can be used for many occasions, I just quickly added a ribbon and bow to mine for the photograph. I hope you will find it useful.

Freebie Halloween Topper

Hi everyone and thanks for all the lovely comments re the last freebie and the kittens. Today they have managed to shut down my PC twice just by walking over the keyboard, not sure which keys do that but  I have now learnt to do regular saves when I am designing files or anything else come to that !!

Anyway the freebie today is for Halloween which is fast approaching. I would recommend cutting the top part on fairly thin card stock as it is quite intricate. I used 180 gsm and it cut beautifully. I am also going to cut just the top part from vinyl to stick on our door on the day.

Freebie Wish Upon A Star Topper

Hi everyone

Only had time to do a quick freebie for you this week as we have been having some work done to the house and it's been quite a job trying to keep the kittens out of the workmen's way and out of trouble !!

This is the latest photo of them - haven't they grown !!

Anyway enough of the kittens, here is the freebie  - I intend to use this to embellish some quick and simple Christmas Cards. Hope you can find a use for it.

Freebie Birthday Boy and Girl Toppers

Hi everyone, back from a lovely, relaxing holiday on the beautiful Greek Island of Thassos. The kitties survived their first holiday in the Cattery too but seem very pleased to be back home. They seem to have grown quite a lot in 2 weeks but refuse to sit still long enough for me to take a photo !!

I see I have quite a few new followers since I've been away so welcome to you all and thanks for all your comments.

This week's freebie is something I made to add as an embellishment on children's cards or perhaps add to  wrapped presents. I have made them fairly small but they will easily resize if you need them bigger- hope you find them useful.

Freebie Flower Cut Out Card and Holiday Notice

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know that I am going away on holiday for 2 weeks from tomorrow so if anyone purchases templates from my Website I won't be able to send them out to you until I return home on 11th September. It will be the kittens first visit to the Cattery so am feeling a little apprehensive about that and we know that we shall miss them but needs must.

I have managed to find time to do a freebie card for you before I go so I hope you like it. I wouldn't recommend using heavy card to cut this as it is quite intricate. I used 220 gsm card and it cut fine. The butterfly is one I found in my stash and is made from acetate - I think it looks quite pretty.

Freebie Happy Birthday To You Card

Here's the freebie I promised on my last post. Another easy to put together card, just layer the panels on to the base card and add the embellishments.

Thought you might like to see a couple of photos of Tommy and Tuppence just after their operations. They are both fully recovered now and back to their normal naughty selves !!
