Free Task List Design and Peony Place GiveAway!

It’s a freebie day! If you’re like me, you are all over the place all day long: kids, work, dinner, shopping…the list goes on and on! And sometimes I’ll think of something TODAY, that I need to remember TOMORROW…so I came up with these cute little task lists that are SUPER easy to use. They are formatted on a 8.5 x 11 paper and you just need to cut it right down the middle. I put the tasks into boxes with lines because I sort of like to categorize what I’m trying to accomplish…home stuff, work stuff, etc. It’s also sorted into TODAY and TOMORROW.img_1419

Tomorrow’s Freebies!

I’m here to post about the wonderful stuff going on tomorrow here at my blog, card nirvana, and the SITS girls! The first thing is happening right here!!!! I am giving away for every 20 commentors, 1 digitial kit of my new digital scrapbooking line (which hits Two Peas in A Bucket next Tuesday…it’s not even out yet!), The new line is called Peony Place and it’s a collection set up in digital scrapbooking sets. Not a digital scrapbooker? These papers are still great to print out for hybrid projects like cards and holiday projects! All you have to do is comment on TOMORROW’s thread and you will be added to the drawing! I will draw one person for every 20 people who comments ( so if 40 people comments, I’ll draw 2 people and so on). How easy is that? I’ll also have a new freebie card up for you to pick up, so you should dash by to at least get the details on that! So everyone wins:).

Spring Arrivals at Card Nirvana

Like a mad woman I have been adding cards to Card Nirvana, my downloadable-printable card store! I created Card Nirvana so anyone could download a card already set up  with crop marks and with as many invitations as could fit on a page. So all of the invitations are set up on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Most cards, invitations, and place cards are set up 2 to a page or 4 to a page depending on the size. The best part is that for people who are not into Photoshop, the cards are set up in Adobe Acrobat so you can change the type! It’s really easy to use and you can create your invitations in just a few minutes from your home printer. I use the cards all the time for my daughter’s birthday parties and my holiday cards. You can find out more about what you get in a download by clicking here.

You can also check out the freebies and sales here.

So go check out some of the fabulous new cards! Here’s a sampling of some of the new stuff! All these cards are created by Jen Allyson or myself! Click on the photo to go to that category at card nirvana!

Valentine Day Card Freebies!

Jen and I both got up our Valentine Freebies at Card Nirvana! I think you’ll like these cards! Jen put up this fun striped valentine’s day card and I have up some mini 3 in.x 4 in. cards that I made for my daughter’s preschool friends. I probably will attach them to heart lollipops or some other treat (I’ll post it when I do them), but for now, we thought anybody who wanted to use them for Valentine’s Day could grab them in advance! The Valentine Stripe card is for photoshop users and the small cards (Valentine Kiddie Cards) are set in a pdf. You can just print as is (there’s a cute heart wallpaper to print on the back of the cards) or use the Card Nirvana pdf to TYPE IN YOUR INFO. It’s SO easy.

Happy Heart Day! Have fun with the freebies! If you use them at all post the link here so we can see what you did with them! You can download from 4shared just one card. I’d recommend just going straight to Card Nirvana to pick all the freebies up at once though:).

**The Card Nirvana download is no longer available! You can now download them directly from this link:

Siri’s Princess Party

My life is crazy right now and I have to design several things over the weekend for My Minds Eye….of course, Siri’s birthday is on Wednesday, and I couldn’t figure out when I was going to get around to designing an invite. So I decided to grab Jen’s card from Card Nirvana. I mean, I designed the darn site to be easy, right? I just didn’t realize it was going to be THAT easy. I had every intention and redesigning some of the elements. but I just opened up the pdf and insert and words and printed it at home (I just needed 5 so I printed 3 pages on some heavy white paper). Holy cow, I had this done in 2 minutes! I know it sounds like propaganda, because afterall, it is MY site, but I was so happy with getting the invitation done so quick that I had to post (because it’s the first time I’ve used one of the cards on the site for my personal use).

Anyway, it’s great in a tight spot! (Siri’s b-day is on Wednesday and we have to drop off cards today).
