Add a special touch to your VERY SPECIAL pages

Cocoa Frost Minikit

First up, apologies for the delay since my last post – I know a few of you enjoy receiving my mail/freebies – but things have been a bit hectic at this end and I’ve not had as much time as I’d like to devote to the blog.

Apart from increased work commitments in the real world, we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of my husband’s first grandchild! In readiness for the pages I’ll no doubt be scrapping soon, I’ve been teaching myself how to make folded ribbons.  I’ve been working with a spot pattern and as well as the obvious pinks and blues I’m saving for the new arrival, I came up with a nice cocoa/latte shade to share with you!

Also included in this week’s FREE minikit is a new effect I’m calling ‘Cocoa Frost’. It works great on small items and outlines! Here’s a sample page I made with just some items from the kit – stars, frame and text feature the new effect:

The Cocoa Frost Minikit is FREE to download – supplied in Digikit.pack format. Download the file and double click it… at the prompt, browse to your own My Digikits folder to save/install it.

The new effect is supplied via the brown spot/element within the digikit’s layout. For further information on how to add effects such as  ‘Cocoa Frost’ to your own effects collection, please see instructions supplied within my previously issued Gold Scrapbook File

or, if you have a problem with exe files

*As with all my work, these files are provided for your personal use only.

If you like this freebie, please leave some feedback for me in this thread over on Daisy Trail

    Hi Iris.
    Thank you for your reply

    I don’t know where I have gone wrong but I was OK in downloading your boderlines + the sample but since then (Hearts & Patterns, funky heart frame & gold tarnish) they havn’t opened? but your latest as you also put this in pack form I was OK as it’s so simple for me to put it straight into my digikits The ones above I downloaded to my desktop opened a new folder and tried that way!

      Gill… the three freebies you refer to are simply individual files inside zipped folders. The Trulytango Pretty Hearts Overlay is a single PNG graphic released on January 20th, likewise the Trulytango Funky Heart Frame released on January 21st… unzip the files and bring them into DSA/CA via the Photo tab or the Digikit Creator if you want to add them to your collection. The PNG graphics were intended for use with effects or blend modes as per the samples I posted. The Gold Tarnish effect is supplied as a regular scrapbook file… just unzip it and place it wherever you store the scrapbooks you have made yourself. Open it by going to File>Open from inside DSA or CA. The scrapbook contains instructions on how to get the gold effects into your software.

      If you’re unsure how to unzip files, this video may help:
