Designer freebie 9/25/2015

Designer freebie today features Alexis Design Studio

My layout featuring PURPLE OBSESSION  and a freebie template from Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs. The photo in my layout was taken in the pond garden in the parking lot at Zilker Botanic Gardens in Austin, Texas - absolutely one of my favorite photos from there!

All the components of my freebie wordart cluster are in my layout, but I tinkered a little with them to make the freebie.

THIS & THAT collection 9/23/2015

There is a personal freebie from my THIS & THAT  - states collection on Projects by poki today.  I made 3 frames with my favorite state TEXAS in them!  (I just didn't have time to do all 50 states, so I wrote simple tutorials about how I did the frames, so my fans can MAKE THEIR OWN STATES!)
I hope you will enjoy them, and be inspired to try out the process I outlined in the tutorials

You can collect these freebies at Projects by poki FB page

Designer freebie 9/21/2015

Today's Designer freebie features Clooney & Me

Coming from a family of pioneer immigrants (my paternal great grandparents came to Texas as Lutheran missionaries in 1881) this kit was perfect to remember the family homestead, purchased in Bell Co in 1887.  (My grandfather was a toddler when they finally settled in Bell County after 6 years serving in many communities around Texas!  My great grandfather became a full time farmer, and also served the spiritual needs of other German Lutherans in the area, organizing Immanuel Lutheran Church in 1889 (126 years ago).  Our family is still members of Immanuel!  Here is my layout featuring WESTWARD HO and a template which I designed.

Designer freebie 9/7/2015

My Designer freebie for today (and yes, I'm working on Labor Day!)  features Over the Fence Designs


Available at 

I always love working the the bundles from Over the Fence Designs ... sometime near the end of 2013, they began a series of collaborations based on song hits from the past!  And they just keep on cranking out the "tunes" and the kits together!  What an amazing work ethic this pair has!

My layout featuring DON'T FENCE ME IN and  Arizona Girl LIFT ME UP template

The fence in the element pack was a great compliment to this rustic fence in my photo!

Designer freebie 9/4/2015

Today's designer freebie features Patty B Scraps


The bundle is available at

There are many months during the year (NOT summer!) when jeans are my only "dress of the day!"  After many years of teaching school, and not being able to wear my jeans, I really enjoy grabbing my jeans for everyday wear, now that I am retired!  I love my jeans!  My boyfriend Mike is the same ... he begrungingly will put on dress slacks maybe once a month, but jeans are his everyday wear as well!

Photo of poki and Mike enjoying a trip to Denver Botanic Gardens on vacation in 2012.  We even wear jeans in the SUMMER when we're in Denver!

Today's freebie is a border cluster I made from the layout above!  Hope you enjoy it!
