Just for YOU from Connie! Part 1




Are you a Facebook fan of Connie Prince Designs? (If not, get on over to Facebook and "Like" her!!). Earlier this month, Connie's Facebook fans voted on the theme for a brand new FREEBIE kit and the winning theme was everyday type things.


As a result, over the next few weeks, Connie will be bringing you "A Day in The Life Of ...". This weekend, she has papers to share ... check out this amazing colour scheme and super preview:




A few items before I give you the download link:


1. Please leave Connie some well-deserved love if you download.


2. Please do NOT share this file directly via any groups, forums or individually - instead just provide a link to this blog (scrapinfusions.blogpost.com) so that others can come and pick it up directly.


3. Be sure to download before midnight September 4 when this link expires.




Connie would like YOUR suggestions on the elements for next week's portion of the kit. Please leave her a comment of some "everyday type things" that you'd like to scrap with. Be sure to leave your suggestions by midnight on September 1 so that she's got time to put your thoughts into elements before next weekend.

Thanks so much for this :)

Suggestions: watch, tags, ribbons, flowers, anything would be perfect!

Fantacy so Sweet-n-Stuff... said...

Thank you! These papers are beautiful!
Suggestions...I love when designers add plenty of "hold down" stuff to their elements such as tape, staples, brads...I know it sounds like something so boring but it helps SO much when creating my layouts! :)

Sheila Irish said...

Thank you so much! I love the colors....

For me, "everday types of things" would be a vacuum cleaner, feather duster, household cleaning agents....AND some buttons, flowers, ribbons, etc.

MaryG said...

Thanks so very much! Great color combination as usual.

daisydilly (vicki) said...

Thanks so much for sharing . Love your work

Janice said...

Love these papers, Connie! hmmm.. everyday items...watches/clocks, COFFEE, add some flowers, and STRING, maybe a swirl to fill it out. Nothing is really sticking out after that. THANKS!

Cate Sforza aka absolutartist1 said...

as always, connie - gorgeous! :)

Charlene Waymire said...

Great papers and I love the color scheme. Perfect for the fall-ness that is creeping into the air. For elements, things like swirly ribbons, brads, etc. Thank you so much for the freebie!

Sabrina said...

Love the papers, such beautiful colors.

For scrapping: I agree with the staples/brads...my stash is lacking those.

For life: laptop, cleaning supplies, laundry basket, toys (2 year old in the house so there are toys everywhere), and furbabies stuff...food, litter boxes, treats. And somedays I get to use a pillow to sleep. lol

Lynn said...

Thanks so much Connie, I love the color combination!!!

Shauna said...

Thank you so much, the colors are great!!!

Suggestions: every kit needs a couple of flowers, ribbons, sting, staples, buttons just because, but I since this is an everyday kit I would also love to see a clock, keys, a phone (cell or regular), coffee cup, reading glasses, and tv remote....things I need every day. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be great because you do great work!!!!!!

Gina said...

Thanks, Connie! So beautiful. Others suggestions are mine too.

Marla said...

Thanks so much! I love the colors. Everyday stuff is cooking things (foods, pots and pans, vacuum, laptop, etc.) I also have to agree - something to hold down stuff (staples, brads, etc.)

So~Inkin~Cute said...

Connie! I have to say...you're one of the most generous designers ever! I love your work so very, very, very much. I know you don't know me, but I work with Lena and Tab on their CT (doing admin-type stuff) and you are just soooooo loved by all of us! I am a huge, huge, huge fan, and I wish I could purchase everything you release!!! Soon enough, I'll be able to! Thank you for all you do for your fans! We all [heart] you!

Hugs,

Candi

So~Inkin~Cute said...

oh and as far as suggestions: I'd say: clock-type elements, tags, brads, shoes (I have yet to find a cool "shoe" element that isn't high heeled), date elements of ALLLL kinds are a must-have for me, as I do the whole Project 365 thing. I love seeing new and unique ways to "date" stuff on layouts.

You're the bomb, sister!

AZK said...

Oh this kit looks fantastic so far! Thanks so much! My favorite ellies:

fasteners of any kind (brads, clips, staples, buttons, etc) stitches, and flowers/leaves. Oh, and tags.

scrappyt said...

This is awesome! Love the colors! Such a sweet giftie for your loyal followers! ;)

Thank you so much!

Suzanne said...

I'm loving this kit already! You really are very generous to share with us!

I always love flowers, ribbons, folded ribbons, and rick-rack. But as for everyday stuff, how about car keys, a clock (with changeable hands?), computer, and a shopping cart?

Monica said...

THANK YOU CONNIE!!! What an awesome pack of papers! cant wait to see the elements!

I agree, tags, ribbons, flowers, for sure and maybe some swirls and buttons!

Jaclyn said...

Great colors Connie! Love it, thank you!

Everyday Element suggestions - dishwasher, dish soap, laptop, pen(s), vacuum, broom, mop, dish drainer.. as for other things - stitching, ribbons (straight and curled), buttons, brads and/or staples, I think every kit needs to have some sort of bling (splatter, scatter etc).. Just my 2cents.

Correen said...

Wonderful -- thank you!

GlitterQueen said...

These papers are great, I especially love that soft green color with the others. I really like fasteners, frames, flowers and ribbons, plus a couple of unique things like word art or special handmade elements. Thanks so much!

keeshaobrien said...

Thank you!!!! I tend to always scrap with the following: buttons, ribbon, stitches and depending on boy/girl layouts stars or flowers. Super excited to see what you come up with!

Adriana Melges Q. Weingart said...

Photographing Mom said...

Thank you, Connie!!!!!!

jenlynnie said...

like the papers. have lots of layouts to do & these will work nicely in them. thanks so much!

Diane said...

Alrighty! As for me, I actually PRINT out & make cards with the kits - so my list is a bit different.

I need tags that you can actually write on, for the inside sentiment. with a border is very helpful, not plain white, not too dark.

WORD ARTS!!! Quotes in PNG or JPG. I need BOY stuff. Not baby boy, kid boys, please.

I go for realistic flowers so I can use flower soft on them.

Border type frames, antiqued looking make for great card fronts.

thank very much for the beauuutiful freebie!

D :)

Mara said...

Thank you for these fab papers! I love the colors.

Rebecca said...

Thank you so much, Connie!!! You rock, girl!!!

Andrea said...

For everyday things I think computer, coffe, tea, television, chair, dishes, plants, books, crafty items, patio sets, wine glasses, pots and pans...

catschwartz said...

Thanks for sharing the great papers with us!

Kellybell said...

Thank you!

Cori said...

This is fabulous!!! LOVE the color palette!!!!

For elements, I'd love things that fasten pictures down - staples, clips, brads.
Swirls and frames are good too.
Everyday type wordart and wordstrips would be nice too. I always have a hard time coming up with those.

Rachel M said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Beautiful color combo and love the papers so far!

As far as everyday items, I think a clock, books, computer, keys, phone, and a basket to hold it all in. Add some brads, staples, flowers, and ribbon/string and it'll be useful in so many situations!

Thanks again!

Thanks so much! These papers are beautiful, as is everything you design! I love cool date/calendar elements, splatters, spills and swirls. Everyday things that I'd suggest include an alarm clock, cell phone, laptop, book, blanket (I'm always cuddled under a blanket on the couch with my laptop!!)
Thanks again and good luck with the rest of the kit!

benziengirl said...

These are gorgeous! When I see the colors I think of a place called Riley's farm...apples, barns, tractors etc would go great with these! Then some just basic stuff like frames, or staples, etc...

Anonymous said...

Thank you! Looking forward to whatever element possibilities you come up with (so many options to go with from people)!

Rebecca said...

These papers are beautiful, thank you! Since it's every day things, I would love to see some office-supplies, like paper clips, binder clips and other little hardware bits. Maybe some journal boxes, lined and unlined.

alison said...

What a beautiful collection! I love these colors and the patterns and textures are great!

Nikki said...

Thank you so much!! I love your work!

I would LOVE to see a bunch of cool journaling spots in different shapes/sizes!! And I always love buttons (you do the best buttons of anybody, I think! LOL). Coffee, flip flops, keys, keyboard, books, clocks/calendars.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Thank you! I would suggest buttons (with string), file folder tabs, brads, staples, stitches, ribbons, and brushes. I'm a basics kind of girl, and I tend not to use many themed elements. :)

Love these colors Connie! Thanks so much for sharing! Can't wait to see the rest of the kit! Some Day in the Life ideas:

Date/Calendar embellishments: maybe a monthly thing that dates can be circled or weekly where numbers can be added

Time/Clock embellishments: changable digital with numbers or hands to move

Tags & Sewing Goodies
Office Supplies
Post it's
Pets
Rustic Alpha
Cooking supplies
maybe some rustic bathroom stuff

The colors feel so warm, i think of fall and corn stalks, sorry to keep saying rustic!

Beautiful!! I LOVE the colors - lol and I always love your kits! :P I would love to see some word art - I LOVE using word art in LO's and your is always amazing!

grambie said...

I just adore these fabulously-designed patterned papers. Your choice of color scheme is so versatile and be used for multiple family oriented layouts. Thanks for your kindness, your professionalism, and your continuing desire to share.

It has been a long time since I have downloaded your fantastic kit. I just received my SBB newsletter two days ago for the month of August. I am so sorry that I missed your scrap. The best to you, always.

I love word art, clusters, opened books to place photos or journaling within. Of course curling ribbons and the normal goodies you always include. I know whatever you include will be the perfect complement to the beautiful papers. HUGS!!

Jen said...

Thank you SOOO much!! And I suck with suggestions, lol. I'm always happy with just your classic ribbons, strings, flowers and stuff that come in every kit :) I like a good choice to choose from, but being a freebie kit, I can't expect you to go crazy, lol :D ... This does have a fall feel to it - so leaves and any other autumn element would be awesome! :D

Jewel said...

Awesome colours - thank you so much! I'd like some journal tags with and without prompts to do an 'all about me' kind of layout :D
