Brush Freebie

Good Day Ladies,
There is a bit of getting used to here in Germany, in Shanghai, day light starts at 6am. Yes even in winter, so here I am at almost 8am and the sky it still dark and everyone seems to be asleep still. Why am I up? I am still in Asian time.

I will be keeping it short today, too good to just sit all day at the computer on my holiday.


Click on the preview to download this brush. If you do not know how to set your brush
go to programfiles-adobe-pse-presets
I hope you like this freebie today.
Happy Winter, thanks for D/L my freebie

Thanks for your visit and encouragement.

Date Strips Freebies.

Hello Ladies,
Sorry for not posting sooner and I think some of you were thinking of grabbing the ribbons. I got too busy packing and now I am here in Germany, it was snowing in the morning and I was really happy to see this.

I am now using the German PC and the keyboard is all changed, for example the Z and Y keys are switched. The ? key is also not in the 'correct' spot. Etc so I am typing very slowly.

I have changed my mind and I have decided I will give the ribbons on Christmas day, so today I want to give you the Date Strips. I see many people were using these dates strips and selling them too, and since I thought it is not too difficult to make them, as Susan likes them as well, I tried to see if I can make some and I did. Here have a look.

What do you think?

This is my version of date strips, thez come in PNG format, and the strips you can change the colours you want. I had a great time making them and I have decided to make more! But these I will give you the next few days. Click Preview to grab it.
Now what is so cool about these next three freebies for the coming days, they are brushes, so you can always have them in your PSE. Like the idea? Let me show you the previews.




Well if you like it don't forget to drop in time to time to grab it. So for today's freebie, go ahead and grab it here. I hope it works, these ones are from divshare, as you all know I can not get into mediafire in China. Please tell me if it works ok?

Have a good week and thanks for visiting.

2 days of Ribbons

One more week and I will be flying to Germany for my Christmas break. I hope it will snow so I get a White Christmas but I heard from Thomas that it hasn't snow for Christmas for the past two year and it's likely not to snow.

That's sad to know. Well to cheer me up let me put this set of ribbons for grabs.
They are wrapped ribbons where you put on top of a box or a present. I hope you get something to use it for.

Grab it here.

Well, I will keep this short as I am a little tired and nothing interesting happens today. I hope you have more interesting week than me.

3 days of Ribbons

Hello Ladies,
How was your Monday blues? Will you be cheered up with another set of ribbons?

This evening was my last minute Christmas Calendar and wrapping presents day. My students and I are playing Secret Santa, so I have tons of presents to wrap today, including the ones I made for my family. Well I thought I should just not wrap my BBooks but then it didnt have that Christmas feel. So in the end I went over the top!
Wrappers and ribbons.

Speaking of ribbons. Here's today's ribbon. Paper ribbon. These ribbons are best used to wrap around your frames and you can add a bit of charms or a tag.

Please click here to download this set.

PS: Although I have no access to mediafire, it's still running. My older freebies are still up for grabs. Feel free to down load them. Have a good Monday.

4 days of Ribbons

Today's Ribbon is Swirled!

Nothing much to say, just that it's cold. Despite loving the cool air and winter. Shanghai's homes. ALL of them, are not built to contain heat. There's no insulation. We have brick walls, and it feels like I am living in medieval times where I need to cover my walls with thick cloth or tapestry.

Since I have none of those, I live in my felt robe and expensive heating system through every winter.

Well so far I have no one telling me that they can not download from my first ribbon day, so here goes. I hope you like the second set.

5 Days of Ribbons.

I am still trying to upload my things to my near file share site. I was rummaging through and realised that I have my ribbons in Mediafire. I know I cant get to it but the site is still running and I can give freebies again!! Why didn't I think of that?
So, there's today Ribbon Freebie. It's glitter ribbon. I had this ribbon for a while and I wanted to make ribbon sets for a sometime but lost it. Since I found it, it 'opened' my eyes and I found more ribbons lying around. So, I hope you like it.
I am back for a while. I hope you have not forgotten me.

Click here if you like these ribbons. Please leave some love.

I'm back! (I think)

Hello Ladies,
After a month down with blockage and I have come to accept I might have another down time again, but I have found DEVShare and made myslef an account. So, tonight I will try out my new freebie for you.

Tell me if you can download it ok? if you can that means my upload is working and I can move on to giving you freebies again.

November has been good, despite that I can not do much freebie give away. I have been making a lot of hybrids for my Christmas presents and knitting! Yes, I knitted neck warmers for my two friends and they are using it.

Weather is Shanghai has been the same, cold! But I am sure some places where you are, are colder. So, I will do some uploading tonight. I have some ribbons for you for the Christmas season. I am not going to make Christmas freebies as they are so many out there already.
So, Ribbons for now..
Let's see if all things works well.

Gone Hybrid.

Thanks Ladies for the gift you gave me..
So, I will post them on my blog soon.
As mentioned in my I MISS YOU blog I have gone hybrid a bit because of the BLOCKAGE on MediaFire in China.

I never really wanted to go Hybrid because I thought it was like double work. But in Summer I made two little brag books for my God daughter and a friend's daughter as well as was excited to see how excited they were too have the gift. Not many people have scrapbooking as a hobby in Malaysia.

Anyway, I made some Christmas give for my Mom and all ladies in the house.. and here's the bragbooks I made. I used someone's BB QP. As I am terrible in giving credits (that's why I never place my LO here) so I am declaring that all the QPs, SB papers and elements shown in the pictures before are not mine but freebies I have DL from other designers.

So, here's the Bragbooks.

my God Daughter, she's 2 this year.


I made about 8 BB including 3 for birthdays









Here's a Christmas gift for Thomas's Mom..A Chinese photo album with scrapbook pages

























Now, yesterday I went and bought an album about 28cm x 28cm, it is on Christmas sale for 160yuan (Usually over 200 yuan)which is how much in Dollars? no idea. I had one on order for the silk cloth material I like. How great is this, it's on sale and you can to choose the cloth material you like! I will get this by Tuesday.

So this book as 40 pages meaning it can house 80 pages. This afternoon I went to the printer and printed 66 pages of my travel digital scrap pages and paid 330yuan, it's 5 yuan a page. Got some glue sticks.. and watched one talk show and a movie to glue all the pages. Boy it looks really good...have a look!

Well that's the things I did while missing on the freebie world. :)
I am working hard ladies to get something going.. if not, when I am in germany I will start my Oriental Chanlenge there.

That's all for today.
Have a good weekend.

I MISS YOU!!

Dear Ladies,
fingers itching and I have my November Oriental Challenge eagerly sitting in my Hard Drave waiting to get out.

It's official that Media Fire is blocked :( sob sob sob. I am still finding a way to get around it.
I miss giving out freebies.. seriously.

I had so many freebies ideas and it's just sitting there.

Good news that I turned a little Hybrid while I am in search of a way to get to my MediaFire.. I heard about proxy.. so I am trying to see what that means.

So the Hybrid that I made were bragbooks.. I have a few bragbooks freebies in the past and didn't really use that so, I popped in the local Chinese Stationary shop and bought some plastic covers, my friend Susan, my only scrapbooking friend in China, had some ribbons and I used the ribbons to make it pretty.

The good thing is the materials is not expensive here. I made 8 bragbooks over a week!! the plastic covers cost about 1.50 yuan, and the printing, a nearby University Press, cost about 5yuan for an A3 colour printing!!! how cool and cheap. I will take some pictures of the hybrid I made ok? And show it to you. I love my Christmas gift and I am sure my God daughter and my mom will lover her gift.

Another Hybrid is a Christmas gift to Thomas's Mother. As I will be spending Christmas in Germany this year, my FIRST European Christmas, I wanted to give her a meaningful present. I went and bought a photo album. The album is covered with Chinese silk and it comes with a matching box. I used as many pictures as I can and scrapbook it and print it out like a photograph and insert it in the album!! it's really cool I get a picture to show you. There are 40 pages but I have only 18 pages but hey, this gives me chances to scrap this christmas trip and then send it to her and she can add more pictures to the album!! What a great idea.. :)

I am thinking of making my own scrapbook I have about 30 pages on my Japan trip and about 30 pages on my last year's Europe trip. I have asked a few publisher to print my books. It cost about 300 yuan. and 8X8 hard cover book. I wonder how much it is for Shutterfly and how big is the book I will check that out too.

Thanks to DebM and Lisa for your comments. I am not giving up girls. I know I may not make a huge difference in the Scrapping world but hey I know my freebies are liked by many and I will not give up. So once I get back on my feet I will be giving you FREEBIES again.. I love doing it. :)

As for now, I will keep a consistant blogging and keep you up dated in my blogging world.


Love Liz

Temporary Out

Dear All
Thank you for yoru support and encouragement. I took a nice break from scrapping and now I am back, but I can not be back to give freebies anymore.

Not because I don't want to it's because the file sharing site I am at, MEDIAFIRE, is blocked. As you know I am constantly getting challenged this way. When I first started DigiScrapping Blogger was blocked.

Then 4shared is blocked. Now MediaFire.com is blocked in CHINA!!! So no more sharing and the chances to get freebies for me is even lesser and I can not give you freebies. Well, you lucky folks out there, count your blessings and always thank the designers who give you freebies.

Good news for me, I can fully concerntrate on my scrap projects.
If mediafrie is lifted, I will be back and you will know it.
Happy Scrapping and Hunting. *sniff sniff*

Boring people

So, as interesting as I thought digital scrapbookers they are with their awesome layouts and out to grab freebies, they are just boring on the inside. Only one response, Lukasmama, she made an effort to play the game .. well, not that I expect all who take my freebies play but just one person to response to my previous challenge says all and over 500 downloads on borders and grungy blocks.

I will be staying MIA for a while, to work on my projects and less on freebies. No Freebies for today but my challenges are still up
this mini Comment Challenge and the October Oriental Challenge.

Have a good month ahead ladies.

Mc D 24hours and delivering in Shanghai PLUS mini challenge Freebie

I think most people of my generation remember when McD did not exist. When I was young A&W was the in thing in Malaysia. A good treat is the rootbeer and waffles with unlimited syrup!

Now Mc D is the in thing. Well to people living in Shanghai. Last year they decided to go 24 hours!! Can you imagine that, if you live near a McD and you woke up hungry and you single and your fridge is empty (like mine). You just walk in with your pajamas for some Apple pie!!

Well, walking in your pajamas is OK in Shanghai, everyone does it! But getting some apple pie?? NO WAY, they have stopped Apple Pie for McD China.. why? Not Chinese fav.

They prefer some odd flovours (says my Western friend) like, red bean pie, green bean pie, peach cobller, banana (my fav!-no longer making them) and at the moment it is Pineapple pie and Taro pie. 2 for 7yuan, like 2 pie for 1dollar.

To top it up, of course i am not so fortunate to live next to McD, they deliver 24/7 too :) Now that is cool... I like McD Spicy Chicken wings...and thier pies, I used to like thier shakes until the recent milk issues here. (plus I am not a milkshake fan).

Why am I talking about this?That's because I am having MACCERS for lunch, totally unhealthy but I forgot to bring my protien drink today, well yes, I am on diet but not a strict diet as you can see haha. I do go to gym trice a week. (pat on the back)

So, tell me if McD is giving such a service where you are at? 24 hours services? wierd / cultural menu. McDs here have prosperity burger. KFC has portugese egg tart and rice porridge.. oh the list goes on.

So here's your challenge:
Tell me about your McD in your city or country and leave it in the comment plus an email where I can send you a link to this freebie today OR email me at etscraps@yahoo.com. (Plus you will get the Border and Grungy Block links as well)



Today's freebie is STAMPS!! I have been seeing people making stamps to give away, sadly, many times I have said this, I don't get to download them in 4shared.com so I have to make my own. I have used them, they are AWESOME on my LO so I want to share it with you.

So I look forward to hearing your McD story and email you my stamps :)

Cheers and Tschus

PS: Oh come on amuse my curiousity!!

OH WOW!! I just realised my blog has
reached more than 10,000 visitors..

Grungy Block Freebie

Good day,

Today's freebie is a challenge for me from my Scrap buddy. She loves to look at people layout and that inspire her to make a layout of her own. This is what I like about Susan, we actually do compliment each other as Scrap Buddy, she would show me things she like on the LO and I would think if I could make that.


So, the other day she showed me a few LO where the pictures all faded to the side, like feathering but looks a bit grungy, she likes grungy. I took a look and told her that it looked like brushes all piled up together. I have many brushes by now, thanks to BRUSHEEZY.com, and I told her I could make a few for her.


I used some mask brush, coffee stain brush, some floral vectors and grunge brush and piled them up artistically on each other. Then we tested them, I took a picture and placed it above the mearged layer of brushes and Ctrl G-ed it. That puts a smile on our face :), I was really happy with the result... so, there it is very easy to make the blocks, pile up your brushes artistically and then merge them together and you have a grungy block.


If you don't have many brushes, please visit Brusheezy.com (I have a link here on my blog) and download them and make more yourself to personalised your LO. The freebie today can start you off with 6 blocks. I hope you enjoy it.



















Click on the preview to Download it. Sorry Preview link not working here, this freebie is now a mini challenge. Please read my McD Blog Date 17Oct 2008 to get this Grungy blocks and Borders.
(I use MediaFire)

Thank the designer for the freebie!
Have a nice day

Dead at 19 and a Freebie

It is always upsetting to see young people being killed by another young people or by war etc.

This morning I read about New York Rangers draft pick Alexei Cherepanov dies unexpectedly in Russia at the age of 19. Not this is very strange.

I mean if he is sickly and has a life threatenin disease, fine, but a sportman just drop dead like this and no one is tell us what happened to him. The first thing that came to my mind was drugs. How can some people not educate our teenagers about the effects of drugs? Ok I may be jumping the gun at the moment. I believe parents should pay close attention to their children. Yes, he is 19 a full grown adult so what? he is still your child check on them from time to time.

Oh I hope his parents will have a peace of mind once they find out what actually happened.

Today's freebie are Borders with words., I made it for my friend
who has two boys and from there I realised I was making more. I ended up using two for my own Layouts and the rest I hope you find them useful too.
I tried my new preview style.. I used mostly brushes to make
this preview. I like them simple to that the elements stand
out. What do you think? it's a bit rough on the edges.

There are 8 borders all together. You can recolour them to match with your layout. You should put the borders inside your picture
just like the WITH LOVE border sample in the preview.
Grab it here . Sorry the link is expired here, this freebie is now a mini challenge. Please read my McD Blog Date 17Oct 2008 to get this Grungy blocks and Borders.

Have a good week gals.

My Birthday, embracing my age.

I'm officially 34 today, but what is age? In my mind I always think I am about 28. In some culture, it is totally rude to out right ask a lady person of her age. As I get older I realised people tend to be cautiously askng what my age is.

Age is age, but we are so caught up with the conformity of the society that we tend to make it so sensitive, so taboo, so no-no and that people has to step gingerely around you just to see if you will disclose your age.

My first year in China, I met many local Chinese, and the first thing they do is to ask, how old are you? base on that age they will proceed to the next question. If you are in the 20s, they will ask "Do you have a boyfriend?" and if you are in the 30s they will ask "Are you married?" Funny eh?

Of course I always get the THIRD question, "How come you are not married?" and the FORTH, "Why don't you have a boyfriend?" and the FIFTH, "Don't you want to be married?" etc
I can image if a few of my other single available female friends were to be asked these questions, they will either clam up or be in tears! I just answered all the questions out of curiosity just wanting to know what is the last question. There were no last question but a last statement, " I will help you find a boyfriend!" haha

So, age is age, it should not affect us, us women in this new millennium should not have such attitude and mid frame about age. Why are you afraid of your age? You can not get rid of it, and you can not turn back the counter (Although many try using other physical power). A few of my friends also say the 30's is the new 20s. Are you kidding me?

Women has come a long way to where we are with the society, we have done leaps and bounce and why let a little 2 numbers get into our way of thinking?
So here I am 34!




Now let's back to the real reason you are here :) thanks for reading and thanks to those to took time to tell me that they like my work. I really appreciate them as your words have encouraged me. While you wait for the things to be downloaded please leave a comment I love to hear what you have to say about AGE.

So, here are two Chinese Glitter words. I will have it up for 2 days meaning today Sunday, and tomorrow Monday, because of the time zones.. I know by tomorrow when I work some people are still on Sunday. And I like Ping Ping to celebrate my birthday with me.

The meaning of the Chinese words are on the label.
They are my first official glitter elements.
3 styles and 8 words.

Here is also Ping Ping. She is holding a typical Chinese
candy, it's a like in America you have Candied Apple.
In China it's called Hawthorne.. it's candied Hawthorne.
There are various fruits nowadays. Oranges and grapes
and my fav. Candies Strawberries!

Enable the Disable

That's what I was told yesterday after the IT techy looked at my LT. I won't moan anymore today about this because what I did was really silly, no idea when I did it but I did it. I disabled the local connection, so that was why my LT didn't give any LAN signal. Silly right? but 'phew' it's all right now.

Yesterday I had HOT POT for dinner, it's the healthiest way to eat. I try to eat almost no carbohydrate at all these days just meat and veg. Not that I am super thin or really over weight, but I am a big size person. I want to eat healthier from this year onwards.

So this hot pot is like this, you get your own little pot and everyone will order meat or vege. They have the regular meat like pork, beef, mutton, seafood and poultry and some restaurant has beef tongue, crocodile meat, frog legs, sea cucumber etc and vegies like lettuce, radish, potato, all types of mushrooms and more. My fav is fried Soy Bean Skin and mushroom. The soup come in several flavour, ultra spicy, mushroom, healthy, peanut and more.

You then pick your own sauce of condiments to compliment the meat or vegies by dipping on them when your food is cooked. You wait for the soup to boil and start to put the things you like to eat into the pot and cook it yourself :) Simple and very yummalicious!

Here're pictures of the hot pot



Pic1. My pot - Mushroom soup.










Here, various of condiments for you to blend your sauce, from sesame oil to soysauce, sesame seed, peanut sauce, XO sauce, Hot chilly pepper, spring onion, garlic, onion etc.











Here you see the mutton and beef we ordered, the far left is the frog's leg, and next to the pot you see bowl of say sauce and the T's condiments next to his bowl.

I go there at lease once a week. One of my favourite meal in Shanghai. Healthy and delicious!

Today I will give you my third last day Birthday Grab... On my birthday I will give you the most glittery freebie of all. I think I forgot to tell you that these grabs only last for around 2 days and they will not be given out again so, remember not to miss these few days freebies ok?

My last Cloth Frames.

The last frame in this set is more like furry than cloth, hope you like it.

Have a nice Friday.
Grab!

Please leave a message, I love to hear from you. :)

Still upset

My father came to visit me yesterday from Malaysia, when I returned home from work we chatted and he casually mentioned that the economy in the world is looking pretty bad and that nothing is permanent and the only thing permanent thing is GOD. He is ever here with us and never change.



At one point he said something about being online in the afternoon to read even more news about the present situation. I stopped him. "What ? You got online?" I abruptly went to my laptop and hooked up, the joy of being connected again just gave me such great happiness, but was in vain. It didn't work on my computer. Only his, and this is when I realised that my LT connection to the internet is faulty. So, there's no problem with the internet, the problem lies on my baby LT!!



How sad I was. I felt a little betrayed as I take care of LT very carefully and she went sick on me!! I know it's a silly thing to say this, but I am really sad and I hope I can fix this problem ASAP.



Anyway, my goal this week is to improve on my kit previews. A friend pointed to me that my previews are not marketable... so I am going to try this week to make my Nov. Oriental Preview to look better. I do have to say that my FROM GERMANY WITH LOVE preview is pretty nice... I like the little sticker in the middle of the papers compare to the strip across. You don't know what I am saying? You know the middle sticker in the middle of the papers?? Ah, well then I should show you.. let's see this one!





See that? I like it that way.. But I like to make a nice one for myother kits, maybe a rounded corner one or something. What do you think of this preview? It is attractive enough?

Well I will make a new Nov. Oriental Preview and then let you see the old and the new together. And like to hear what you think, Ok?

The preview here shows Sunflowers and another orange flower (no idea what is the name, I'm terrible at keeping a record of flower names) We were riding through the scenic view, mind you all the views surrounding Adelsheim is Beautiful, and we passed by a patch of SUNFLOWERS.Being a city girl I have never really seen fields of sunflowers in real time. I have seen plenty in pictures, so I made T (my boyfriend) turn around and stopped to let me just look at the field, what else would I do next, you say. Took PICTURES!! It was a very happy picture time. So after doing a bit of tweaking the papers, now they turned out beautiful!

The other picture was taken in Bad Rappernau, a nearby town to Adelsheim and they were promoting a flower festival, I was a little dissappointed with the festival because there weren't many variety, but I captured a few flowers for my freebies to you. This orange ones are gorgeous. Don't you think?

Oh I realised I forgot to tell you, this preview is my freebie today. :) Grab is here ladies, and please leave a comment if you like these papers.

I am now worried sick and hoping my LT will be working and I dont have to send her in to the IT hospital. Well I have a duty to do, so have a good day, cross fingers and pray that my LT (laptop ) is not seriously damaged.

Tschus!

Connection Down

I sat in front of my Laptop yesterday night clicking the connect button that links me to the cyberworld about a million times. I was not able to do so, and if this happened 8 years ago, I would be jummpind around getting edgy because I can not read my news, my email, chat and do some net surfing in the comforts of my own home.

But yesterday I was calm, I just continue to work on my Scrap Journalling, texted my landlord to ask him to replace the modem or find out what happened. I watched some movie and went to bed early.

I have come to realised that I can still life a fulfilling day without using a laptop day and night, but as you know given the opportunity, I like to be online. It is like being hooked up on an IV drip.

Well, I just realised that my birthday counter is wrong!!.. Its not 2 days left!! I still like to cherish my younger me today, tomorrow and up to Saturday!! I will be the older me, but still young at heart (How many times have you heard this line already, yea?) on Sunday.



To celebrate 3 more days of being 33!! Hey triple 3! Let me share a Brackets with you.

Have a good day ladies, and please leave a comment if you like them.

American October Celebration.

It's the Halloween month.
I remember my host told me the first year I was in Arkansas that they do not celebrate Halloweens but Nov 1st, all Saint's day. (I think) It was more of a religious celebration for them on Nov first then Halloween.

To me is a day where all American children play dress up in the community and get candies. In Shanghai, most expat families, not just Americans, would participate this costume seasons. Children will knock on your door, which is decorated to indicate you are participating in this event, and the apartment tenant will pass out candies, coupons or homemade cookies.

There is also a darker side to this celebration, not that I know clearly what it is, but I remember my host family telling me children in the community can only be trick or treating in the same community they are from, for safety reasons. Kidnapping and people making thier own candies with razors or silica powders etc for the kids to eat!

I never celebrate Halloween, that is because I never grew up doing this. In Malaysia, no one does it and by the time I was in America for my studies, I was too old to participate.

Although I do like the idea of dressing up for a fun occasion, since I can not do that here or I don't have pictures of me in costumes I am sharing PingPing with you.
She is in her 1st Halloween costume - a glitterly butterfly.

Recently I will be busier. A friend and I came up with the idea that I design the cover of the Wedding Guest Book for her as she is a wedding planner. I have agreed to do this for her and I am really excited.

I hope I can continue to give freebies to you as my work began to pile up. I am very very happy to share my work with you. Especially those who made effort to write me and encourage me. Oh, I have finished finally my November Oriental Challenge and I am working on the December Oriental Challenge. It will be a Peranakan Themed. (a Chinese Malaysian Theme)

I will not be doing any Christmas Challenge, but I may have a surprise Christmas gift for you. I will be away most of Dec as I will be celebrating Christmas in GERMANY!! for the first time with BF's family. I will try to bring my HD with me so I can set up Christmas gifts for you everyday. Like a Christmas Advent? Everyday you open a box and a small gift inside?? Nice idea? What do you think?

Oh well. I need to get to work on my Wedding Guestbooks layouts.
Have a good Sunday.
