Retiring Freebies & A New Freebie

Okay, so remember when I said I was going to give freebies a shelf life of a year, then retire them? Well, I slipped a bit on that! But it means several freebies have gotten a little longer to live and a little longer to give, so it’s not an awful thing. Ah, but all good tings eventually come to pass and all free things…well, remain free, but not available! So it is with today’s list!

The following list is the 29 freebies that are over a year old and scheduled to retire on February 28. There are full kits, templates, quick pages, word arts and other elements. If you’re new to The Chronicles of Nani, you might want to use the right click, click and hold on a Mac, to open the links in a new tab so you can download the freebies or better yet, have a cup of coffee and read the blog while you’re downloading, but keep track of this index page!

Just a note in case you’re reading this page and it’s after 2/28/10 - I have all the freebies archived on disk. If you are new to The Chronicles of Nani and see a retired freebie, you can still get it. Just drop me an email at chroniclesofnani@gmail.com and I can get it to you! Now I will get back to those emails requesting retired freebies as time allows and I ask that you request no more than three per email. If there are more than three, you’ll need to send multiple emails. Just send the freebie title and link to the original page it’s on. I’m sorry, but I will not honor requests without links to The Chronicles of Nani original entry or emails with more than 3 freebies requested.

Now, after a while in the old freebies, how about a new one?

I’ve been doing some extra little pieces for the layouts I’ve been catching up. There are trends in the Scrapbooking world, but there are also trends in the Nani world. As has always been true with me, my trends are either a little behind or ahead of the times, but seldom spot-on. While I have always loved the time-honored use of significant quotes on my pages, I never thought I’d really get into using multiple fonts and when I first started digi-scrapping, I hated the shabby look of worn, folded or wrinkled papers and paper elements. Now for some layouts I love the worn look and I’m having much fun using word art and creating my own. So the pieces in More Than Words, today new little freebie reflect some of my evolution as a scrapper. I hope you have some use for the little freebie!

I’d love your thoughts on my little bits here at The Chronicles of Nani, preferably here, I don’t get to 4Shared to read them so often, but I love reading your comments!

I’m slowly getting ready to do a new kit. I have a special layout that I want to do and I think the reason I haven’t been able to find a kit I like for it, it’s because I have to create the kit myself. But I’m still always making templates and elements as part of my catch-up goals, so look for more new stuff to replace the retiring freebies!
