I’m giving YOU “The Gears” - a fun FREEBIE

Here’s wishing you a super-creative weekend!

I had SUCH a good break this past weekend, visiting with my family (including my Sister who oozes creativity!) and I’ve come back fresh and with a TON of ideas to work out on Cammy.  So, without further ado I’ll post another fun card I made and share the file with you!  I was thinking I need to make something masculine, guy cards are simply not as easy.

The more I thought about it the idea of GEARS came to me so I just whipped some up.

I embossed a quarter-fold sized cardstock (making myself play with things I have bought recently -  the embossing folder was one item)   Do YOU have the same habit as me, you buy something with great intentions and then somehow it sits waiting, waiting waiting for the time you decide to use it?  I made my self! 

I created the word art myself and would have loved to include it in with my FREEBIE only I am not entirely sure if the fonts are for commercial use - meaning not sure if I can redistribute them, so will err on the side of caution. 

I loved being able to use eyelets, getting used to “setting” them.  I think they make a project look more polished wouldn’t you say?

And these gears - they were entirely too fun to make!  These are not very big, so you can totally appreciate how small the Cameo can cut.  My shimmery gold and silver paper came in handy for this project.

Don’t stray too far away from the blog - I have two more loverly FREEBIES I’ll be launching in the coming days.

  9. Hi Barb!
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog! That's very kind of you! Which designs are you interested in? Eventually I would like to set up a website where I can sell digital stamps to crafters, but I need to make more of a name for myself first. I think giving away a few freebies helps, so it would be great publicity for me if you use some of my designs in your crafting! Do contact me if you need to... You could DM me on twitter... I'm @madamebogg
    Many thanks and all the best!

  14. Thank you for the gears, I can always use a few more to make the next cards a little different for the men in my life. I am pleased you enjoyed looking at my gear cards.

  15. I'd love to get your gears, but I cannot download anything from the location. I don't know if it's my computer or what, but this is the third file I've tried to download and my computer just will not respond. Works for all the other sites, just not this one. Thanks anyway.

  16. These would be great if I could download them, but my computer just will not let me download from that site....I don't get any response, no matter how many times I try. This is the third file from that site I've tried, don't have trouble with any of the others. Thanks anyway, great idea for a card for a man, they are always hard for me to think up new ideas, and the majority of the Grandchildren are male.
