Digital Scrapbooking on the Cheap 3b: Lots of Free Downloads

Last week I showed you how to find free digital scrapbooking materials for yourself. To get you started as you accumulate your blogroll of beloved designers, here are a few websites that you can visit to download a lot of long-term free materials. I’ve chosen each of these websites because they leave their freebies available for a long time. So get comfortable, clear some hard drive space, prepare to type “thank you” a lot, and start clicking.

Free Kits and Elements Sets

Rebecca’s Scrapping Silliness Rebecca has some lovely free downloads on her blog. Not everything shown is a freebie, but it’s worth scrolling through the archives to find the ones that are.

Free Word Art

Elegant Word Art Bethany makes daily blog updates about her family’s goings-on, and each post is concluded with a piece of spectacularly well-done word art that’s relevant to her day’s adventures, and probably your life as well. Definitely a must-bookmark.

Melanie’s Word Art
Melanie’s posts are short and to the point. Though she posts less frequently than Bethany, each word art is unique, colorful, and has a whole lot of funk. Very worth checking out.
