I'm designing for About.com - Free Kit

I'm proud to announce that I am now an independent scrapbook kit designer for About.com. If you are not familiar with About.com or their wonderful graphics area, run by Sue Chastain, their graphics guide, please check it out soon. She always has tips, ideas and tutorials for all the major graphics programs, along with reviews and freebies. There is a newsletter that you can sign up for that will keep you informed of all the new content that she has ready for you.

I'll be designing a new kit for them, each month and you can pick up the digital scrapbooking freebie April kit by clicking on the preview below.

NOTE: When saving the files at About.com, click on the small thumbnail to get an individual image, then right click and choose:

IE: Save Target As...
Firefox or Google Chrome: Save Link As...
Safari: Save Linked File
Opera: Save Linked Content As...

Otherwise, you will not get the correct filename or filetype.

I often get "stuck" with color palette ideas, so if you have one you'd like me to use, please feel free to email it to me. teapotlady at gmail dot com

How wonderful! I'll certainly be looking out for your About.com contributions! I'm on their newsletter list so hopefully I'll see that coming up.
This kit is beautiful, thank you!
I grabbed your lovely DSO CC kit as well. Many thanks!

You kit is beautiful. Unfortunately, I can not download it from About.com. When I right click to save the large versions they all save as .bmp. If I save the small versions they have the appropriate extensions but are the SMALL images.

Sorry for any inconvenience with downloading. The following instructions have been added to my posting.
NOTE: When saving the files at About.com, click on the small thumbnail to get an individual image, then right click to "SAVE LINK AS" (in Firefox) or "SAVE TARGET AS" (in IE). Otherwise, you will not get the correct filename or filetype.
