The winners are...

Yep, I spelled "Christmas" wrong. Good job Allison Hicken, you were the first person to leave a comment pointing out the mistake. You should have gotten an email with your coupon code to pick up your freebie!
And now the number of other people that caught the mistake was zero! Either they were just as oblivious to it as I was or they were being really nice! Chicapooh was the first person to guess zero, but I need your email address. Please email me at holleywilliamson@gmail.com so I can send you your coupon code!
Thanks for all the nice comments!

What's Cookin?

My grandma had the idea to make a family cookbook for Christmas and asked me to make a cover for the book. Here's what I came up with. My aunt printed out two to see if she should do glossy or lustre and decided on lustre. Then she got the 15 or so covers printed. AFTER all that she showed them to my grandma and my grandma immediately saw the mistake I had made. I was soooo embarrassed. But it was too late to fix it!
So I've decided to give this kit "What's Cookin?" away as a freebie to 2 people: The first person to point out my mistake on the cover above. And the first person to guess how many other people caught/said anything about the mistake. Just leave a comment with your guess!
You can find this kit at Scrappin Digi Kreations or you can buy it here.

"Our Savior" My EF7

Here is the seventh and final part of mega kit, "My Eternal Family." I made these kits for the songs the LDS Primary children will be learning in 2009. But they can be used for various other personal use things.
"Our Savior" My EF7 ~ $1.50  Add to Cart
For the months of April and July the song choice is very broad. The topic is our Savior. I created these pages specifically for the songs "When He Comes Again" and "I Feel My Savior's Love." But they should be broad enough to apply to just about any song about the Savior. They are also interchangeable (the background colors are all the same.) Also, I didn't make Title pages for these songs since they were so long. I just put the title on the same page as the first verse. But if the songs your primary is singing are shorter, by all means use one of the pages for a title page.

Lyrics to all Primary songs can be found here:

There is also an extra page that matches the cover and back cover that could be used for a Contents or Index page.

"My Eternal Family" My EF5

Here's part 5 of My Eternal Family Megakit. Just so you know, I'm trying to get this megakit done by Christmas. There are 2 or 3 more parts left. I might do two months together since they are the same theme (pick a song about the Saviour-very broad huh?). I do have a question for you all out there. Are there any Primary choristers that have picked songs for April and July for 2009? Or have you guys asked your choristers? I'd like to make the pages as versatile as possible. The chorister in my ward should be getting back to me this week about her choices. Just leave a comment if you know, thanks!

"Family of God" My Eternal Family Part 4

Here is the next kit in "My Eternal Family" Megakit (aka MyEF). These kits are created specifically for the songs the LDS Primary kids will be learning in 2009, but could be used for various other things.

"Family of God" My EF4 - $1.50  Add to Cart

And here are the freebie quickpages. They are made for the song, "The Family Is of God" (Friend, Oct 2008) but the chorister can choose between that song and "I Lived in Heaven" (CS, p. 4). So you can use the pages for that song also. I put directions as to which pages could be used for which verse in the download. I also included the links for the lyrics of the songs but here they are also:

"The Family is of God":

Toothy Smiles

Well I had two kids dealing with new teeth at the same time. Child #1 was losing her first tooth and Child #3 was getting his first tooth. So I thought I'd make a kit all about teeth! "Toothy Smiles" Part 1 is for those 'Baby's First Tooth' pages and Part 2 is for those kids who are losing their first tooth and getting their first visit from the tooth fairy. I'll be giving these away as freebies for a couple of days, so catch them while you can!
AND I have a treat for you. A little while ago Bethany of Elegant Word Art contacted me about doing a collaboration. I've admired her work for awhile so how exciting for me! So she made some beautiful wordart for "Toothy Smiles." You can pick up this cute one up at her website
And here's the awesome wordart that she made for me to give away. She's amazing huh?

I Voted Freebie

Well I'm all hiped about Proposition 8 (I'm in California) and getting out the vote next Tuesday. My husband, 3 kids, and I put out doorhangers all morning and wiped ourselves out. Now we're making phone calls galore. I did a Yes on Prop 8 button down below. And here is another little Freebie:

Remember to Vote!

Here are some buttons I made, great for the side of your blog! Obviously, not everyone agrees with this, but that is why it is so great to live in the United States where we can freely express ourselves.

My Eternal Family Songbook Example

Well I had a question about what the LDS Primary Songbook for 2009 should look like when completed. I don't want to mess with copyright issues, so for each song I've been posting the link to copy and paste the lyrics. I also put the link in the download. For each song I'm making a title page, and then one page per verse and per chorus. The files are 4"x6" so you just add the lyrics right on top of the page, print out the pages like a regular photograph and then compile them into a bragbook. They sell little plastic ones at Target for $2. Or you could spend a little more to get one with a nicer cover. Hopefully that answers your questions, let me know if you have any others!
Happy Halloween!

"Families Forever" My Eternal Family 3

This kit includes 3 temples based off of the Salt Lake Temple, San Diego Temple, and Newport Beach Temple. I may create more temples eventually, they are kind of fun! It also includes two temple charms, a charm link, the family on the earth, 4 frames, and 8 papers.
"Families Forever" My EF 3--$1.50  Add to Cart
-
These quickpages are for the song, "Families Can Be Together Forever." I know I've been doing the songs out of order, but the first song the Primary is supposed to learn next year 2009 (or one of two options) just came out in the Friend this month (October), so now I'll probably follow the order that they are learning them in.

The lyrics for the song can be found here:

I included the link and other info in the download. If you like what I do, comments are always appreciated! Thanks!

LDS Blog Button Freebie

I've been having fun figuring out how to make an animated button. I've been wanting one for my family blog, and I made this temple today, and so I made a button too! It's the San Diego Temple (where my husband and I were married). I'm making a couple other temples for the next Primary songbook kit. The button is 220 pixels wide and fits perfectly on the side of my blog, so hopefully it works for others too. And by the way, it does have a white border around it, although you can't see it on this blog.

Here is the html code. It has the link to http://www.lds.org/ already in the code. So just copy and paste!

"I Want Candy" Halloween Kit

I'm taking a little break from "My Eternal Family" songbook, but don't worry I'll get the next pages out soon. I am so excited about this Halloween kit and I've been trying to get it done asap so if you want to use the desktop freebie this month you (and I) can use it for as much of the month that is left! My daughter ends up wearing pink almost every year for Halloween and how often do you see pink with Halloween colors? So here is my solution!
~
I am showing the previews of the elements and papers separately so you can see both to their full advantage, but the kit comes all together. The word art says, "I Want Candy" and "So Sweet, you make my mouth water."

"I Want Candy" Halloween Kit--$2.00  Add to Cart

The desktop comes in two different sizes: 1680x1050 and 1024x768. That way if you have something in between, you can just size the biggest one down a little. They are png format. Enjoy!
