Scrapping till the cows come home – Freebie Heaven

I have just spent this afternoon over at Bonnie van Esch’s blog, Scrapping till the cows come home, downloading her back catalog of wonderful freebies. I strongly recommend that you visit her site and check it out for yourself.

Bonnie is a very sweet and talented lady who designs some lovely kits and makes them available on her site for FREE! I especially like her hand painted background papers and elements which are absolutely beautiful and have a very different feel to purely digitally designed papers.

Just recently Bonnie has republished all her ‘old’ freebies and made them available to visitors to her site. This is sensational from my point of view as I only discovered her a few months ago and I can now collect all her previous work.

The layout below was created using her Enchanted Garden kit which, as you can see, is just beautiful.

Please don’t share the direct links to the downloads with other people. Give them Bonnie’s URL and let them visit her site. And if you do take advantage of her freebies, please remember to leave a little note of acknowledgement in her comments. It’s a small price for her generosity.

ADDENDUM: A couple of weeks after I posted this article Bonnie revamped her site. Great look. She also found a commercial outlet for her designs (Yay Bonnie). So she no longer offers her 300dpi designs as freebies on her site. But her kits that were designed in 200dpi are still available as freebies and well worth downloading.

    Thanks so much Karen for your sweet and kind words and the link to my blog in your post and sidebar. I just feel, since I can design and since I can’t sell my work yet, why should I keep it all to myself when so many people can benefit from it. Thanks again and I love your beautiful lay out with my kit, Thanks so much for showing me! Always nice to see work done with my designs. You’re a hunny!
