FREE solid color digi papers

I have been pretty swamped with a million things including saving a litter of 4 kittens that wandered into my backyard from the field behind it.  More about that whole story a little later (including new kitten digi images!), but for now...

INSTRUCTIONS to get for free without a purchase:
FIND THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON on the product page HERE and click DIRECTLY ON THE FILE NAME itself to download to your computer.  No purchase is required!
But you can add it to your cart if you already plan on buying something else.
30 solid sheets and 15 solid duo/combo sheets for those who like to print less. Total 45 sheets!

Blackberry Jelly Jar Labels

I made some blackberry jelly this week (YUM!) and was needing to make the labels all cute for them. 
I used the new purple color flower dot digi paper in the Country Flavors Digi Paper Pack for the circle bases and created a smaller white opaque circle centered inside it in Photoshop. Then inserted text and the Blackberries graphics overtop and arranged them by sight how I wanted.
I saved my graphic out as .jpg and .png and was able to place it in a Word document so that I could print these on label paper and punch them out.  I also made little rectangles the same way for the sides of the jars.
I also punched and cut clear self adhesive laminate sheets to go overtop the labels to "seal" them so that if wetness occurred on the labels on the jars during use, the ink wouldn't smear.
Here's how they turned out!
I actually made 20 half cup jars, but only could fit 4 of them in my picture taking space.  I'll be keeping a few for myself, and sending my bachelor dad some, and then using the rest as thank you gifts.

Now I'm suddenly in the mood to make a big batch of homemade bbq sauce to can!    Hmm....

More juicy color added to a few older products

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe July 4th!
My goal is to have every product in the shop have color versions, but it's going to take quite some time... When I first started the shop, I offered only outlines and there were a good couple hundred in there when I started dabbling with the digital color and then only offered a few sets each month with color.  Now I strive to add to color to all new products and there is only a seldom few that don't get digital color when they release.

Today, I finally finished a few additional digital coloring of 5 of the older products.  They are up in the shop July category.
Great news is that the current special for the newest July products, the coupon code JULY25OFF works on these too!  And that special is still going on through July 7!

Remember that all outlines are always included in every set that has digitally color images, even if that note isn't made on the preview or the description.  The only exception is if the Name of the set says "color ONLY", or if the product is a "Kit" or "Quick Card PDF".

BLACKBERRIES:  This is actually the same berry outline image of the previous Pears & Raspberries set, but I colored the raspberries as blackberries and then added some new sentiments and digital papers.  I'll admit I had a specific need for this!  I am making Blackberry Jelly this week and wanted some colored images to make special labels for the jars.  Outlines of the original Raspberry images included.
NEW PRODUCT!!   COUNTRY FLAVORS DIGI PAPER PACK - So you see, since I was making blackberry jelly (see notes above), the papers in that set didn't work exactly like I needed for my jar labels, so I decided I just needed some more digi paper.  And if I was going to bother making some in colors to coordinate with the blackberries, I may as well grab a bunch of other colors from all the other fruits and veggie sets I have and make a great huge honkin' set!  Because who knows, I may end up making some other kind of jelly or can some other vegetables or something, and I would want some basic but cute, country style mini patterns for those as well.   Is it too obvious that I'm trying to validate my decision for needed more digi paper? LOL
This set includes 48 sheets of digi paper PNG files, AND as a bonus, I included 16 combo sheets (for the 16 color shades) for those who just like to print a little of each design.

PEACHES & HUCKLEBERRIES:   These fruits were originally offered separately as outlines only, but I decided their colors went well together and so I combined the fruits to one set.  This actually makes it a bit better deal for you!   Outlines included.

ORANGES & CHERRIES:  I have been wanting to color these for-evah!  Loving the deep oranges and bright reds.  Outlines included.

CHERRY DUO:  Since I colored the cherries in the Oranges & Cherries, I went ahead and colored this mini set too, and added the sentiment "Cherries" for a little something extra.  And don't tell me you don't just LOVE the cherry digi paper!

BIRD OF PARADISE:  I added two sentiments to this as well as the color images and papers.  So pretty and tropical!  Perfect for summer floral cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to create something special for someone special.  May you bless others as you are shown blessing.
