Freebie weekend!

Hi there, Jen here, thanks for stopping by! Have you recovered from the holiday hullabaloo yet? If you’re anything like me, you wish the “hullabaloo” lasted a bit longer (read – more vacation!). But alas, it’s back to work and back to school. Happily, for many of us, it also means back to scrapping, a hobby which goes by the wayside during busy times like Christmas and New Years. Did you collect lots of new photos? I sure did! Today, I’d like to share a fun and jolly kit with you. No, it’s not a Christmas kit. It’s a New Year’s kit called Up Til Midnight. It was designed by one of the newest designers here at With Love Studio – Shmooangel Designs. You can find Up Til Midnight here at WLS. And below is a layout I made using the kit.


Isn’t it fun? You know what else is fun? A freebie of course! I have just the thing for your New Years’ photos created using Up Til Midnight. Just click on the image below to download. And, be sure to leave a little thank you for Shmooangel Designs! Enjoy everyone. See you back here next Saturday for another WLS freebie.
