I hope you all liked the free fairy doorway last week, and the 15 free border templates from the Blog Hop on Monday 16th February.

I hope you like this weeks free template just as much.

This week I am offering something for both scrappers and cardmakers alike.

This RECORD collection can be used to make a novelty card, or a number of record sleeves can be joined together to make a mini scrapbook album. The records and sleaves are great fun to decorate with the recipients favourite bands and singers, and can of course include photos and text on the round.

I would love to see any photos of anything you make with this free template. Please email them to me at Jenniebeancrafts@aol.com Click on either picture to jump to the freebie page.

PS - check out this website to help you make your own records !!!!!

PPS - check out Edditas store for fantastic 50s embellishments.

Kelly, Beth and Vic ........... huge bigs hugs from all of us in Scotland.

New Designs on Paperthreads

I have added quite a few new designs to the Paperthreads store this week.

If anyone has any special requests, please dont hesitate to ask.

Creative Team - new designs

See the links on the top right of my blog to access pages of fantastic designs by my creative team, Diana Marsh, Yana Pritchard and Joanna Lovegrove.

These are updated each week.

All three girls have totally different styles, and I am sure you will be impressed.

Weekly Free Template

Sorry just a quick one this week. My sliceform Grandfather Clock.

This would make a great card/gift for a retirements, but because there is a hidden wee mouse running up the side, it would also make a great nursery rhyme feature for a baby card or scrapbook page.

Any problems, feel free to give me a shout.

After the success of my original Christmas Snowglobe launched in August 2008, I have now made a number of improvements:
  • the globe now attaches to the base, so even though this can be cut from a different medium, you can still create one joined up sliceform

  • more options for inside the sliceform globe have been created including a miniature sliceform teddy and wedding bell, and also a range of dangling charms (ballerina, love heart, angel, flower, 18th and 21st birthday keys)

The final improvement, is a full 10 minute video instruction, although the old photo/written instruction is still available if required.

This template will shortly be available frommy store on Paperthreads.

Meantime, why not check out the video so that you can see that sliceforms are not that scary (but maybe me on video is!!).

Paperthreads February Newsletter

Have you subscribed yet?? This months newsletter is looking like it will be very special, with lots of new features, and lots of freebies.

I have written an article on sliceforms, and to go along with this, I will be giving away a free sliceform template of a Bird Cage.
I know these can be a bit daunting if you havnt tried a sliceform before; so I decided to be big and brave and produce a video instruction to help.

You can watch this on You Tube.

Remember to subscribe to the newsletter.

Are you looking for something different (and affordable) to give a loved one on the 14th February?

These are perfect for everyone you love, your partner, parent, sister, daughter, grandparent, or just a wonderful friend. You can purchase these in GSD~AI~WPC~KNK formats from Paperthreads, and they come will full step by step photo instructions.

Weekly Free Templates

Here we are, Sunday again, and my first whole month of blogging completed.

For the start of February I thought I would remind anyone who doesnt know that I post a free template on my website every weekend, for one week only. This week, I am sharing my Matryoshka Dolls. These are great on a card, a scrapbook page, or just as a fun activity for kids to decorate. They can be identical or entirely different e.g. a family. I would love to see any photos of anything anyone makes. Click on the picture to take you to the download page.
