New Products for Sale & Lil Furry Guy #5

I have some new things for sale in some of my shops. First, I have dark furry trim which is just border you can use. It's made from the same thing as the Lil Furry Guys. I also made a second set, but this time in lighter colors.

You can get them here at Sweet Scrappin Design, here at Busy Scrappin, or here at Benevolent Boutique.

Also, someone said I should make a kind of Build a Furry Guy kit and I think it's a good idea, it'd be CU to recolor and I'd include eyes, mouths, and other random things like for example how I used glasses. They'd be a PTU item and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in something like that? If so I'll probably make it and have it for sale in my shops by next week.

And here is today's freebie, Lil Furry Guy #5. This time I decided to do a dark one, hope you like it.



Also, don't forget about my contest I posted below. Enjoy, and let me know what you think if you download.

In between making my next PTU kits, I will be working on a freebie kit that I can hopefully get done by next week. But being that it's a freebie kit, I'd like to know what you guys want it to be.

You can email your theme ideas to me at shiloschwab@yahoo.com. If I choose your theme, you also get the pick the colors and the name. If you'd like to send me the colors, theme, and name all at once as your submission you can or you can just send a theme idea and if you win, I'll contact you for colors and name. Put "Kit Contest" or something to that effect as the subject.

So send in submissions, and good luck =]

CU Jean Pockets Freebie

Like I said earlier.. I went on a scanning spree and in the process, I scanned a bunch of my jeans pockets. I was gonna sell these but changed my mind. They're commercial use, recolor them, use them in kits, do whatever you want with them. But do not give them out as freebies in the state I'm giving them out in, make them your own, don't just give them out. Credit is not required, but appreciated. There's 7 pockets in the download.



Enjoy, and please comment if you download.

Scanning Spree & Random Post

I've been up all night and I'm bored and so I went to scan one thing and ended up scanning 74.. lol. I scanned everything from clothes to binders and anything else I thought I could use.

While I was look for things to scan.. I found this, I made it in Kindergarden but I'm not sure why my L is a backwards J.

The poem on it says:
Here my handprints are done
For everyone to view
I had so much fun
Doing this for you

So look upon this handprint plaque
Hanging on your wall
And memories will come back
Of me when I was small

That's it, idk who wrote it lol. I thought it was cute.

So anyways, back to my scanning. Here are some things I scanned that I liked.. let me know if you guys like any, I might use them for something if I can figure out what.

And I think I def. wanna use this for something..

That's all for now.. let me know what you think about any of these if you like them. And I'm glad everyone liked my freebie kit and alpha. And how well the Lil Furry Guys are going.

Pastel Playground Alpha Freebie & Lil Furry Guy #4 Freebie

I'm not selling at 5 stores, my products are currently in 3 and 2 more on the way. You can see the side of my blog for a link to the stores I sell in. Right now I'm uploading 2 sets of furry trim to my stores, 1 dark set and 1 light. When they're up I will post previews and tell you which stores to get them in.

Well, I'm glad everyone liked the kit, I was happy with how it turned out for the most part. I think my favorite things in it were the butterfly, hop scotch #2, and the swing set. But maybe that's because I made them myself lol.

Once again, sorry about all the mix up with the tagger papers being with the full size. It's all fixed now.

Well, alot of people said they'd like an alpha to match, so here you go, an alpha freebie



Also, here is Lil Furry Guy #4 freebie. He's supposed to be a nerd, I thought he was cute lol. Let me know what you guys think of him since I did something a little different this time by adding glasses and stuff.



Enjoy and please let me know what you think if you download.

I Made a Mistake on the Freebie Kit

I accidently put the tagger size papers with the full size kit, I thought I had lost the full size papers completely but I just found them. I'm uploading them now and the full size paper download will be up soon in the original freebie kit post.

Edit: The papers are now up, if you see anymore mistakes, please let me know.

Also, come join our forum at sweetscrappindesign.com

Have You Made Anything With My Stuff?

If you have, anything at all, please email it to me at shiloschwab@yahoo.com

When I get enough, I'd like to put a slideshow on my blog

Freebie Kit & Contest Winners

Well, I have finally finished the freebie kit. I think I'm happy with how it turned out. I tried to make alot of this stuff myself without any templates or CU items and I think I did ok for the things I did make. I didn't make everything in the kit. But I made the swing by myself lol. And also the butterfly I made I think is so cute.

So anyways, the name I decided on was Pastel Playground. I also liked the idea Pitter Patter but I figured Pastel Playground matched the kit more. But Pastel Playground was submitted by 2 people. So I've decided the the one who submitted it first will get to pick the colors for my next PTU kit and they will get it free. The one who submitted it second, will also pick a set of colors but that set will be for the PTU kit I do after this PTU kit and she will get it for free lol. If that makes sense. Basically, I'm letting them pick the colors of my next two kits.

Also, should I make an alpha freebie for this? If enough people want me to then I will.

Our first winner was Leaonna at Busy Scrappin. She will pick the colors for my next PTU kit and get it for free.

The second winner is Laura, I do not know her blog but if I find out, I'll post it, I have her email though. She will pick the colors for the PTU kit I do after my next one and get it for free.

Let me know what you guys think of this kit, it's kind of a new style for me



(Tagger Size)

(Full Size Papers)

(Full Size Elements)

Please comment and let me know what you think. Enjoy

How'd I Do? Sneak Peek at Freebie Kit

Well, if you've read all the other posts about the next freebie kit then you know what the theme is. From now on, I'm trying to make everything in my kits myself besides a few things so I decided to try and make a swing set to go in this kit. This is what I came up with, I feel like I did a good job but let me know what you think. This will be in the kit. It should be done within a day or two. Sorry, it's taking longer than I thought. I know the seats could look more realistic but I was having trouble with those. The actual one in the kit is bigger and looks better but yeah, any opinions? Keep it in the kit or should I get rid of it? Not sure how I feel about it.

Upcoming Products, Lil Furry Guy #3, and Last Candy Land Freebie

Firstly, since I'm selling in stores now, I'd like to sell more than just kits. So if you guys have any ideas, any at all, on products you'd like to see, whether they be embellishments or CU items or anything, please let me know and if I can, I'd be happy to make them and put them in my stores. If you ever even have a personal request of something, I can make it for you to purchase so don't be shy to ask. Also, if you have any ideas for a kit, just let me know and I'll try my best if I'm interested.

Ok so, with the freebie kit that I have coming up, the child one, I'm trying to come up with ideas for elements and having a hard time so if anyone has any ideas let me know. Something to match the papers I showed and as I said, I've made a chalk hop scotch. And don't forget to enter my contest to win my next PTU Kit, see details in my last 2 posts.

In other news, I'm now selling at 4 stores. My products are listed in 2 of them, and a 3rd one soon. Then tomorrow I'm getting started at my 4th store. I was accepted to a 5th but they charge fees and I can't afford that right now. 5 stores in my first week, I'm proud of myself lol. Right now, you can find my products in Magical Scraps and Sweet Scrappin Design. Soon my products will also be in Benevolent Boutique. Then tomorrow, I'm going to be getting started at Ahhh Scrap!. So hopefully all these stores go well for me and it all works out.

My products you can find in the stores include some of my tagger kits and I've just added CU Googly Eyes and Glitter Firework embellishments. They are already up in one store and will be up in the other 2 tomorrow. There are 9 different googly eyes and 9 fireworks. I decided to put the fireworks out because of my positive feedback from the freebie one I gave a few days ago.

Here's a preview of both:

So be sure to check out the stores I sell at and pick up some of my products if you like them.

Also, as I said, I've decided to do a Lil Furry Guy freebie line where I will give out a new one everyday. If you want a specific color, just leave me a comment saying what color, or even better, a color swatch or something of a color and I'll make it as one in my line. Or even any suggestions for facial expressions, let me know. I'm surprised at how much of a response I got on these and how many downloads there have been.

And now for the freebies.

The first freebie is Lil Furry Guy #3



And sadly, this is the last Candy Land freebie but we're starting the Lil Furry Guy line, so hopefully you enjoy this one as much as you did the Candy Land. This time it's candy frames. Also included are some jelly like frames to match the swirls. There are alot of frames, the preview just shows one of them.



Enjoy and please comment if you download and let me know what you think, I read every comment on here and my 4shared.

No One Wants to Win My Next PTU Kit?

I've only had 2 entries, no one else? I was expecting more than that. There's another day or 2 to enter.

In case you missed my last post, if you'd like to win my next PTU kit, then you have to name my next freebie kit. It's a child theme and I posted a color swatch in my previous entry. I've made a chalk hopscotch element and one of the papers has child's game names and sayings on them. So keep that in mind when naming it. You can enter as many names as you want. Email them to shiloschwab@yahoo.com with "Naming Contest" or something to that effect in the subject. I'll post the winner when I post the freebie kit.

I've finished the papers so I decided to post the preview of them to maybe give people more ideas on names. The paper with words on it, says things like "Hide N' Seek", "Ready or not, here I come!", and "Tag, you're it!" plus a few more.

Here are the papers:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What do you think of the papers? I was unsure of them

Anyways, on another note, due to alot of positive feedback, I will be doing a Lil Furry Guys freebie line. Everyday for the next week or 2, I will release a new one.

Sorry this contest has ended.

Wanna Win My Next PTU Kit?

Well, everyone voted for a child like theme as the next freebie kit. I've made a color swatch and started a few papers and a few elements. I'm making a tagger size and a full size.

Here's a little preview of the color swatch:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

But anyways, here's the contest to win my next kit that I sell. I don't know what the theme of that kit is yet but you can win it lol.

You have to name my freebie kit that I'm working on. The one I just showed the color swatch for. It's a child like theme and so far I've used doodle like flowers, stars, dots, and also made a chalk hop scotch element. So keep all that in mind and the colors and email your submission to shiloschwab@yahoo.com with "Naming Contest" as the subject. You can submit as many names as you'd like. The contest will run until I finish the kit and then I'll make a post with the winning name and the kit.

When my next PTU kit is done, I will email it to whoever wins. Good luck.

Sorry this contest has ended.

Lil Furry Guy Freebie Version 2

I messed around with it a little bit and I think this one looks better. So let me know what you guys think and if I make more they'll be like this one. Except different colors and expressions.

Comment if you download please and let me know what you think so I can decide on whether or not to make more.

2 Freebies & Other Random Stuff

Well, since yesterday, I've been accepted to 2 other stores which I'm excited about. Possibly one other but it's not a for sure yet. I'm happy with how fast I'm moving along.

Well anyways, earlier I was messing around with PSP because I usually use Photoshop so I'm not very good at PSP and came up with some sort of ball of.. fur lol. So I decided to try and do something with it. I made some googly eyes in Photoshop and added those and a mouth and for the time being he's called Lil Furry Guy cause that's all I could think of lol. I'm not so sure how I feel about this one and if I like it or not. So let me know what you guys think, if you like them then I'll make a new one everyday for a week or 2. Everyday I'll make a new color and expression, etc. if I get a good response. Hopefully someone will have a use for this.

Also, here is Candy Land #6 Freebie, nothing special, just 2 different styles of bows in colors to match the other stuff. This is around where I started to get aggravated with how the kit was coming, so the rest in my opinion is not so great but that's just me.

Preview of 1 of the bows:

Well, let me know what you think on if I should continue with the Furry Guys cause as I said, I'm not sure if I like them or not.

My new kit for sale

Well, as I said in my previous blogs, I was accepted at a store and I've posted my first kit for sale there. Since a child theme won for the next freebie kit, I'm selling my "Red, White, & Blue All Over" kit for $3.00.

You can buy the tagger size here at Magical Scraps.

You can also buy my "Utopian Sunset" tagger kit here.

My Retro Elegance will be on there either later or tomorrow.

If you'd like to buy the full size version of this kit, you have to do it through my blog by clicking the "Buy Now" button. The full size is $3.00 as well.

The contents of the kit depend on if you get the tagger size or the full size, the full size has a few more elements than the tagger. But the element list I'm posting is the tagger one, so some elements aren't listed.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This kit includes:

12 Papers (600x600)
3 Bows (in 2 different styles)
3 Grungy Butterfly Doodles
5 Buttons
3 Charms
10 Glitter Fireworks (All different)
2 Flowers
7 Frames (in 2 different styles)
3 Star Gems
3 Glitter Flower Doodles
3 Glitter Metal Flowers
6 Satin Butterflies
3 Grungy Stars
2 Yarn Stars

Email me to purchase.

Also, I'm joining more stores, atleast 2 more I believe. I'm excited and happy at how fast I'm already getting into stores and how big my blog has become.

I'll post the freebie kit within the next 2 days so keep checking back. Plus don't forget, I give out freebies daily.

"Red, White, & Blue All Over" Sample Freebie & Candy Land #5 Freebie

I'm still excited about selling at a store. I've applied to many others, just waiting on replies so wish me luck. Also, I was turned down by many stores because I'm 17. I guess you have to be 18 to sell there but I don't understand why. Why are their age limits on some stores and not others? I guess I'll just reapply when I turn 18.

Well, yesterday I posted the poll thinking that Patriotic would win as the next theme for the freebie kit but it looks like a Child theme is winning. I've already made the patriotic kit, it's called "Red, White, & Blue All Over" and if it doesn't win as the freebie kit then I'll just sell it for like $2.00-$3.00.

Anyways, here's a freebie from the "Red, White, & Blue All Over" kit. It has 1 paper, 1 frame, and 1 glitter firework. There's like 12 glitter fireworks in the whole kit, I love them. If you want the rest of the kit, just vote on the side of my blog for patriotic as the theme.

This is personal use only.

And now for Candy Land Freebie #5. This time it's swirls that are meant to look jelly like with candy charms on them. I didn't have time to make a preview but there are 4 styles of each color.

A CU Freebie and I Got Accepted to a Store

I'm excited. Today I was accepted at www.magical-scraps.com. They're all tagger size kits but I can't wait to get started and hopefully my kits will sell better in a store. So from now on I'll make a regular sized kit and a tagger version of it for the store. I'm still looking to get into other stores, so if anyone wouldn't mind me selling in their store, let me know.

Anyways, on another note, the poll for the next freebie closed and a kit won. I put a poll up on the side of my blog for you guys to vote on what it's theme will be. The poll ends at this time tomorrow. I'll post it within the next few days. The child theme would be doodle like, with little cars and other random things. And I think Patriotic is self explanatory.

But even though a kit won, I decided I'd give out each freebie listed in the poll anyways because I couldn't post a blog without giving something away. So here is a commercial use glitter butterfly for you to recolor and use any way you'd like.

"Utopian Sunset" Kit for Sale, a Sample Freebie, & Candy Land Freebie #4

Once again, I'm surprised at how much of a response I've gotten, I didn't expect it at all.

I've made a new kit for sale. I ask anyone who is interested to please buy it as I need money to buy supplies to make more kits, freebie kits, and freebies for you all. I'm running out of supplies I haven't used and currently have barely any money to spend on things.. so I'm kind of in need of it bad. Otherwise, I can't make kits and freebies for you guys. I would appreciate anyone who does buy it to help me out. If you're not interested in this one, try checking out my "Retro Elegance" kit for sale in my first blog post.

I feel like I'm getting better at this kit making thing but correct me if I'm wrong lol.

This kit has 16 papers and 66 elements. The previews aren't very good because I had to shrink them down but they look better in actual size. Not all elements are shown and everything in the elements preview also comes in pink, I just couldn't fit it and I was using a pink background. This kit is $3.00. If you don't buy it, atleast let me know what you think of it. If you buy, please allow 24 hours for the download to be emailed to you. It will be sent to the email registered to your paypal.

You can buy the tagger size here at Magical Scraps.

And now for a freebie frame from the "Utopian Sunset" kit above. I was happy with how all of my frames turned out for this one. But this one was my favorite. It comes in 3 different colors but I'll be giving away the pink one. Maybe this will inspire you to buy the kit lol. Also, the actual one is alot bigger so make sure you download and don't just save the preview. Also, when you click the download, the preview on 4shared looks pretty bad, I promise it looks good once you download it lol

And now for the 4th Candy Land freebie. I didn't have time to make a preview for this one so I'll just post one of the actual bows. But it comes in all the colors to match the other candies.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Enjoy, and please comment on either my blog or 4shared if you download. I prefer my blog.

Also, looks like a kit is going to win the poll as the next freebie.. I'm thinking either Patriotic theme or Child's theme such as doodles, etc. Any preference?

June 24, 2008

Freebie Poll

I'll still give out the Candy Land freebies daily but I also give out other freebies too. So on the side of my blog I've added a poll for you guys to vote on the next freebie. When I put up the freebie will depend on what option wins, if it's a kit, it might take me a few days. The poll will be open for a day.

Also I've added adsense to my blog on the side, I get money if you click them (hint).

Whimsical Sky Alpha freebie & Candy Land Freebie #3

Once again, thanks for all the comments and downloads.

Here is an Alpha for the freebie kit I posted earlier "Whimsical Sky". It has letters A-Z. Sorry, but there are no numbers. This is my first alpha so sorry if it's not the best. I tried.

It's outlined in glitter, it's hard to tell in the preview so I'll post one of the letters as a preview as well.

One of the letters:

And now for Candy Land freebie #3. This time it's a set of charms in every color to match the other candies and some that are filled with multiple smaller ones. The charms come seperately from the bottle but I've included the preview. Jar by Osa Honey
