Another Place and Time: Art Nouveau

Here's the post I meant to get out yesterday...

Another Place and Time: Mega Heritage Kit

This week's Monday freebie is neither an ethnic nor an era kit. Instead, I have a heritage kit to share with you. This isn't just any old heritage kit. This is a mega kit! This kit has some Victorian elements, heritage elements, old roses, and great papers. If you have old photos that you want to create scrapbook pages with, this is the kit for you. You are sure to find something you'll like.

The kit is called "Heritage Rose" and it is featured on the Fishinmom blog. This particular kit was released in 12 segments. The last segment, with two papers, can be gotten here. After you download that segment be sure and scroll back through Fishinmom blog and get the other 11 segments. And while you're there don't forget to say thank you in the comments section. Here's a couple previews of a couple of the segments...

Another Place and Time: France

Usually this is a Monday post but since yesterday was the Labor Day holiday I spent the day having fun at the Michigan State Fair instead of sitting at my computer desk. So please pardon my tardiness ;-)

This week I'd like to show you a vintage freebie with a French theme. Those of you with French ancestors will appreciate this kit. It has both a French and a vintage theme (1910s/1920s). This is Vieux Charme de la France by Kyra. She also has another freebie kit on the same blog post if you're in to... Innocence.

I hope you'll take advantage of this wonderful free kit for digital scrapbooking. When you visit Kyra's blog, be sure and tell her thanks for the kit!

Now go get creative with your genealogy!
