Home Improvement #1

UPDATE (10-6-2009): Freebie link removed; I will be adding this to my SAS store soon.
* * * * * * * * * *
My daughter and son-in-law recently purchased their first house, and it needs a bit of work! I'm sure this won't be the last load of stuff they haul away. This picture inspired the dump truck element in my kit ~ thanks for the template, MegaDoodle Inspired.



I'm so proud of all they are learning and the improvements they are making themselves to turn their fixer-upper into a beautiful home; that's what inspired this kit. The papers are textured to look like floor or wall surfaces, and there are lots of elements, including some that are not necessarily "home improvement" related so this can be used for a variety of layouts.

You can download here (LINK EXPIRED). If you can't use this yourself but like the color combo, go check out July’s DSO Color Challenge #1. There are always great freebie kits created each month. And thanks to those who leave some love when you download ~ it totally makes my day!


Next up: Home Improvement #2, using the DSO color challenge swatch #2. If I wasn't such a perfectionist and worry wart about my kits, I'd throw it together in the next few days. Better plan on a week or two. : )

Andrea said...

Oh my goodness! This is so amazing & adorable!! I love your little *home improvers* w/ their tools & tool belts!!!

WOW that big truck with trailers would've been handy when we did our renovations on our home. We borrowed my Dad's trailer & made several trips to the dump trying to clear out our home. We did all the work ourselves (well my hubby did more work than me, my job was mostly babysitting or keeping the kids away from the main work area, but I did help when I was allowed to LOL).

Thanks again for sharing such a wonderfully darling kit!! Can't wait to see part 2!

FABULOUS KIT! THANK YOU! My son is in the USAF and in Okinawa right now till at least Jan of 2010. I miss him a lot too. We hardly ever get to talk and he certainly is a typical male when it comes to writing letters...NONE ...UGH! But anyway...THANK YOU for this kit!

Wow! I love your kits! They are absolutely adorable. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talents with those of us who have none! :) I checked the DSO link for this color challenge and your kit is by FAR the cutest one I've seen. Thanks again for sharing your talents in such a beautiful way.

This kit is perfect. We just finished a huge remodeling project and what a better way to journal our experience. Thank you!

Another darling kit and another one I can certainly use. Our son has a full time job for the city where we live, but also has a business he does as a second job. He does all types of repair jobs and just finished redoing a home, texturing walls, tiling bathrooms, etc. so this kit is FABULOUS.

Thanks so much, Maurine, for being so sweet to share your talent.

Big Hugs!

What a cute idea! Thank you for sharing!I would never have thought to scrap home improvements in such a cute way. I also love your other home kit posted after this one. Sorry - it is late in Australia and I am having a mental blank on the name of the other kit.

Thank you for sharing. Your kits are fabulous and I am glad you have a high self-imposed standard of quality when it comes to designing your kits. I nabbed several from your site and I am sure I will be a regular visitor from now on! Thanks again!
