Chat tonight and a freebie

As part of my time as the Featured Designer at Digitals, I'll be at tonight's chat. It's at 9 PM Eastern. Stop by and you can get the download link for the most recent set of grung frames. (These are the same frames I was giving away as a thank-you to those who applied for my CT.) I had a lot of fun at the last chat, so I hope you can stop by. :)

New FREE kit available over the next 2 weeks (Edited with link)

I'm currently the featured designer at Digitals for the next 2 weeks. For that, I have a kit for you that will be handed out in pieces daily. If you get the Digitals newsletter, there should be info in there. You can also download the newsletter directly from Digitals here: (Click on the Late October Issue)

Brand new freebie!!

Celebrate with me the fact that I am *finally* done with all the projects and deadlines that I've had to meet over the past couple of months! :D One of my CT members came up with the basic theme for this paper set, so thanks, Teresa, for the inspiration. Hope it helps you with your upcoming Not So Scary Halloween Party Pictures. :) You can download it here:

Everything will be back! :)

Ok, so I got busy during September, forgot to log into my 4shared account, and now all the original download links are kaput. So, if you're new to the blog, hang in there and I'll get everything back when I can. I'll be starting with most recent since they show up at the top of the blog, and I'll work back. Depending on how much storage space I have left on 4shared when I'm done, I may have to put a few files as a "by request only", and then upload them temporarily to yousendit.

****ETA: The newest files are now up; a lot of files have had "LINK RETURNING SOON" added to let you know they are not up yet. If it has a link now, it means I have not gotten around to updating the information in it yet, or else the link is new & should work.****

The good news is that once October is over, I *hope* things will settle down for me and we'll see some new blog stuff. It might be sooner, but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up. I've got a rush project for Digitals which is taking up my designing time right now. (And my designing time's been in short supply lately!)

Friday, September 28, 2007

Chat with me tonight, plus I'm having a BIG sale!

I'm finally winding up my time as hosting the Designers Element challenge over at Digitals, and I'm having a chat in Digitals chatroom tonight at 9PM Eastern! If you're able to stop by, the Date Marker system link will be handed out, so you can download it for free! Also, I'm having a special 1 day only sale to tie in with the chat; everything in my section of Digitals is 50% off!! But it's only for today, so pop over there if you get a chance & check it out!

New kit

This was a case of a paper pack becoming a little more than a paper pack, thanks to one teeny little photo corner. It kind of snowballed from there. LOL! I like this one because the colors are darker than my other kits. :) There are a few other things not shown in the preview, like another fleur-de-lis iron border, 3 more frames, and a couple more photo corners. You can find it here:

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

Here's where I am! :)

I'm currently finishing up another kit, plus I'm hosting this month's Designers Element challenge over at the Digitals message board. If you decide you want to play along, just add a message to this thread: Then, I'll send you the link to download the free mini kit which contains all-new bonus items from my Date of Birth Collection. Finish the challenge, and you get to download Amanda Thorderson's cool mini kit as a bonus. (It's posted in the thread.)

Also, join me at Digitals on the night of September 28th (likely at 9 PM Eastern) to get the link to dowload the cool Date Marker System pictured above. :)

If you are in the Dallas area...

...I just started a Dallas Digiscrap group on Facebook; I think if you do a search for it, you'll find it. I also found out there are a ton of "Chris Beasley" people on there. LOL! Well, I do have a pic up, if that helps you find me. :) If you want, you can add me as a friend, and you don't have to be in Dallas to do that.

If you missed it the first time... (Scroll down for a new freebie today, btw.)

I had a request for the Ink Swirl Alpha again, and since I've been meaning to upload it here, I've finally done it. :) You can download it here:
I've also added a poll to the page, although it doesn't seem to be working at the moment. We'll see!

New gold frame available for download

I went back & reworked one of my older layouts from last year, and I made this new gold frame for it. It's a bit of an odd ratio (about 8 inches wide by 7 1/2 inches tall), but it may resize somewhat without looking "weird". :) If you'd like it, you can download it here:

New Ribbons In Bloom ribbon set

I created one of these ribbons for a layout, and I decided I should just go ahead and make a whole set while I was at it. :) These are .jpgs, so there's no shadows added to the files. (There are shadows on the contact sheet, as you can tell.) Affordable and pretty, it's a very colorful accent for layouts. You can view it here:

Seebee's Freebies Basics Photo Clusters for PS/PSE

Now available, these are a rework, of sorts. I took some of the frames from the Old Photo Edges, recolored them and stretched them a bit, and arranged them into clusters of 3 and 5 with custom shadows. (You can delete the shadow layers, if you wish.) Just group your photos to the picture squares by making sure your photo is above that gray-colored square layer. Then, hit Control-G (PSCS2 is Control-Alt-G, and possibly the same way for CS3) to confine the picture to the gray-square. Either open your pictures and add them to the template separately from your layout, then Merge Visible and drag that layer to your layout. Or you can drag all the layers of the template onto your work and add the photos there. You can download it here:

Take Notes Journaling Mats now available

Now available at Digitals! ( These are fun little journaling boxes/mats that with that kind of back-to-school feel. :) Fairly inexpensive & cute! Five styles, and each style has both horizontal & vertical versions.

And thanks to Angela for pointing out my little, um...flaw. :D I think it's fixed now. "Everyone makes mistakes" would be my lesson of the day.

New Dream Trip Retro Paper Pack

And now for something completely different. :) Here's a set of 5 coordinating papers with a dash of 50s-60s styling thrown in. Not much more to say other than I hope you enjoy it! You can download it here:

Dream Trip Apprentice Redo Paper Pack

Everything old is new again. :) I have been wanting to go back & "fix" a few things about the original Magician's Apprentice paper, like the texture. I also corrected the color; now that my monitor is calibrated, the original looked too purple for my liking. The texture is now much, MUCH more subtle. (It is there, but you'll have to zoom in to see it.) And finally, I combined the Apprentice paper with the Magical Jeweltone paper, since they are perfect together. So, you get a redone Apprentice paper, a matching Magical Jeweltone, and a new version of Apprentice with the hat down in the corner as more of an accent piece, plus a sparkle edge. All for the low cost of Zero Dollars and Zero cents. :D Download it here:

A comment on comments

I've been having some trouble with Blogger in terms of being able to read my comments here. I'm thinking this is in relation to IE6, but I haven't confirmed this. Anyways, in order to allow me to read the comments, I've currently turned off profile pics. (It keeps loading & reloading them, which is part of the problem.) BUT, I've also turned off the need to be logged into Blogger in order for someone to leave a comment. I figured I'd do this on a trial basis & see how it goes. Comments are being moderated, so they won't show up instantly. But now you should be free to comment on Blogger as well as 4shared; comment wherever you wish. :)

And tomorrow there will be a revamped Dream Trip paper pack available for download. I'm very happy with it, and I think you'll like it, too.

New product! (Scroll down for today's freebie)

Now available exclusively at Digitals! ( This kit started out as a simple, non-birthday themed paper pack, and then took on a life of its own. :) Also, I am currently scheduled to host the Designers Element challenge at Digitals next month, and the mini kit will feature *free* companion pieces to this kit. I'm also in the process of scheduling my first crop/chat, and there'll be a free goodie with that, too. :D

Thanks for visiting; hope you're having a great day!

Seebee's Freebies Stitch Set 3

I finished up the new stitch templates this morning. (Let's all say "thanks" to my kids for sleeping in!) Both of these templates have more space available than what is shown. For instance, I could have cut the bracket/parenthesis to take up most of the page, but I dragged it off the page to take up less room. You can either group the template to your paper if you're using PS/PSE, or use the solid-colored template with the Magic Wand to create a selection based on the template shape and cut your paper in that shape. I've included the .psd layered file for PS/PSE users, and then the stitches and templates are in separate .png files, as well. (The papers shown, btw, are from my new Date of Birth kit which should be available starting today at Digitals.) Download the Stitch Set here:

Yes, I still exist. :)

Last week found me taking a break from blogging, mostly thanks to a 3 day headache at the beginning of the week. I've also been working hard on a new kit for Digitals, and there will be free bonuses with that. :) I just started a new stitch template freebie this morning, and my guess is that'll be the first new freebie. My daughter's been keeping me pretty busy and away from the computer lately, but I'm going to a crop Friday night which means lots of time to work on projects, I hope. So...things are coming, I promise!

free Swirl Journaling Lines

Ok, so I called this "Swirl Journaling Box" in the download. Box...lines...whatever. :) I needed a complimentary set of lines to go with this layout, so I put this together & figured I'd offer it. You get the black lines with the semi-transparent white swirl in the background, in .png format. The swirls on the picture are from my personal collection and I don't have them available anywhere yet. The "SWEETNESS" bar code & cardboard is from a new embellishment set which I hope to have up at Digitals by the end of the week. The paper is from the Flowerpress paper pack.

You can download the Swirl Journaling Lines/Box here: LINK RETURNING SOON

New Dream Trip Quilt Paper Set

I've had a sample of paper lying around my house for about a year now, with this quilt-style pattern that I really wanted to copy. Today I *finally* sat down & did it. I also added 3 complimentary solids to go with it. You can download it here:

Also, I've been meaning to mention that I did a beginner scrapbook tutorial over at Digitals. It's a very, very basic tutorial about creating your first layout with Photoshop Elements. It's nothing fancy, but if you know someone who wants to learn how to scrap with PSE, this may be a good starting point. You can look at it here:

Seebee's Freebies Dream Trip Beaded Wire embellishment

Here's a little something I was working on. I wanted to do a whole bunch of these, but it took longer to get the words connected than I would like. So, I'll offer this first one, and if I get the time I may work on some more. This one says "The Fairest One of All". You can use it as a simple embellishment, a frame for a circular picture, or even erase a bit of the wire to thread it through a hole. :) There is a tiny amount of shadowing on the beads, but there was more shadowing for the contact sheet only. You can download it here: LINK RETURNING SOON

CT list and Dream Trip news

Here's the first batch of Bees! :) Thanks again to everyone who applied; you all did great!

I'm currently working on a new little Dream Trip freebie, so that should be up by the weekend, at the latest. Actually, I think it's almost done now, but it will depend on how much time I have to finish it & get it uploaded. (My kids are usually the deciding factor in this. :D)

Working on the CT list

Hi and good weekend to all! I'd like to thank everyone who applied for my new CT team! I can't tell you how nervous I was to even attempt this, so I greatly appreciate the nice comments. The only bad part about having a good deal of applicants to choose from, is that now I actually have to CHOOSE! My plan is to keep the team to a small number of members, for now, at least. I'd love to choose more, but I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, so to speak. I should be making attempts to contact some people either today or tomorrow, and hopefully I'll have a list for you soon. Thanks again!

Friday, July 13, 2007

CT deadline tonight

Last call for CT submissions! :) Scroll down for the details if you haven't seen them.

New product, freebie, and CT reminder

Now available at Digitals (, the Decorator Notepad Set. This product allows you to take *any* digipaper and turn it into a custom mini notepad embellishment, suitable for journaling. The set contains a .psd template and separate .png files. There are 3 different colored line files, so you can choose the color that compliments your paper.
And as a bonus, you can download 5 papers that will work with the notepad template, or on their own. (The lines are merged into the paper in these.) You can download them here: We're getting closer to the deadline for CT submissions, so hop to it if you're interested. :) Just scroll down the page a bit for the information.

Monday, July 9, 2007

Now available exclusively at Digitals. ( This is the paper pack I was referring to in the previous message; the new free graph papers match this set. This set also marks the debut of my line of JournalEverywhere papers; two such papers are included, and you can even see a layout featuring the light blue one here: . (It's a funny little story about my son when he was a baby.)

And if you haven't picked up the graph papers, scroll down to the previous message. Thanks for looking!

Sunday, July 8, 2007

Now available for personal scrapbook use only. Have you noticed that graph paper seems to be hot right now? These two coordinate with my Dotty Doodle kit colors, plus I have another paper pack coming out this week that also matches this. But even without other coordinating paper, they're nice to have around. :) You can download it here:

Also, don't forget you have less than a week to apply for a spot on my Creative Team! The deadline is this Friday at 11:59 PM Central time. If you need details, scroll down this page a bit and look for the Diana Jean kit.

New Quickpage set; discounted today only

I've never offered a Quick Page before, but I've had this sitting on my computer for a couple of months and it's now available at Digitals. And, since the 4th of July sale doesn't end 'til tonight, it's on sale for 1 day only! :) This is an easy way to make a gift for a new mom. I'm planning to make 1 for each of my kids, and hang the framed LOs somewhere in the house. You can peek at it here:

CT call and free kit download

Here we go! The Diana Jean kit is now available for download. Use the DJ kit to create a layout and send it to me via e-mail if you'd like to apply for a spot on my creative team, Seebee's Busy Bees. (Yes, I'm going to drive the whole bee theme into the ground!) And, if you send me a submission for the team, you'll receive the Grunge Edge Set 3 as a thank-you gift. All the information you need should be in the download for the Diana Jean kit, and remember, you DON'T need to be applying to the team in order to download the DJ kit. (But you will in order to get the grunge frames at this time.) Download the Diana Jean kit here:

CT call coming soon

I should be getting the information about the CT call up either later today, or tomorrow. This also includes a free kit for everyone to download, if they like. Stay tuned!

new Dream Trip Labelmaker Frames

Now available, for personal scrapbook use only. This is a set of 17 frames (16 worded frames plus 1 blank) made to look like they were created with those Dyno punch labels. On the blank frame, use a free font like Plastique or Embossing Label, and then use an embossing layer style to complete the look. The majority of the labels are black, in order to coordinate with most layouts. I did, however, include both blue & pink versions of "princess". And, because I've been calibrating my monitor recently, the color of the blue princess label does not coordinate with the original CinderGirl papers. If you are handy with color changing, you can retint the papers. (Try a -15 on the Hue and -15 on the Saturation.) I am, however, giving you a download which includes the 3 original CinderGirl papers plus the matching ribbon, and they have all been retinted to match the label just like in the contact sheet shown. (Hopefully they match!) My thanks to my friend Nicole for the use of her picture with her lovely princesses. :)
The sayings are: A Dream Come True, ARRRRR, Authentic Magic Moment, Believe, Caution Magic at Work, Caution Villain at Work, Duck Crossing, Friend of the Mouse, Imagine That, Mouse Crossing, Princess (3 versions), Say Cheese, Think Think Think, and Yo Ho Ho. I may make another set, so if you have some suggestions, leave a comment. If I don't deem it to be to close to infringing on copyright, I'll try to use it. :)

Ink Swirl Alpha moving

Just a note that the free Ink Swirl Alpha is in the process of changing sections at Digitals; I'll put up the link when it's available again.

Free date marking system available

I came up with the idea for this dating system last night while I was looking through some magazines. I may end up reworking it, though, since I want to change the days to words to differentiate it from the years. BTW, I used two digits for the years, so "00" can mean either 1900 or 2000. I figure the look of the picture will give some clue as to which date it's supposed to represent. :) The file is a .png in black. I can think of several ways to mark out the date you want. In this layout, I changed the blend mode to Soft Light and then selected out the date numbers I needed and gave them each their own layer. Then, the blend mode was changed back to normal and I inversed the color to white. (Ctrl-I is the inverse shortcut.) I finally added an exaggerated height to the shadow to make them look like they were floating off the page. The paper is from my Dotty Doodle Paper Pack (recolored), the font is Two Peas Wedding Day, and the tear is from Atomic Cupcake. You can download the Page Edge Date Marker here: LINK RETURNING SOON

New Sparkle Journaling Lines Set

Now available exclusively at Digitals! (LOL, I almost forgot to post this here.) It's 15 journaling line sets in the Sparkle series. If you click on either the Digitals link and hunt down the set, or you click on my Disney album at Photobucket, you can see a couple of layouts made with these. Fun!

So, what's going on? :)

Glad you asked. LOL! I am currently busy working on laying the groundwork for starting a Creative Team for Seebee's. The good news? In conjunction with that, I'm creating my first ever kit offered for free here on my blog! It will be available to EVERYONE, not just those interested in applying for the CT. So, stay tuned & be patient, because I've got a lot of stuff to get in order before it's official.

New e-mail address available

As of this past weekend, I've begun using a new e-mail address. The old Hotmail one still works fine, but my new one was created just for Seebee's & Seebee's Freebies business. So, if you click the contact link at the bottom of this page, it should be going to the new address. :)

Behind the scenes

Hope you're having a nice Saturday so far! I've got a product ready to go up at Digitals, plus I'm putting the finishing touches on another. And I've finished up 2 layouts today; they're Disney World photos so I have added them to the Photobucket Disney album I started. You can click on the link on the right side of the page, and it should now be working properly. (The guest password is "seebee".) And I hope to have another freebie here in the next day or two.

Friday, June 15, 2007

Sale today , LO Share and a little freebie

Here's a layout I just finished. I've been doing example layouts for my next paper pack (the Neutrality Paper Pack), plus I used a paper from The Sparkle Pack. And it wasn't until I was working on this that I realized there was a stamp for the Dream Trip Stamped Sayings pack that I never got around to making. So, I spent some time this morning creating it for this layout, and you can add it to your collection, as well. The Ticket To Ride stamp is in .png format, and you can download it here: Note that the place where I put the date is blank on the stamp, so you can add your own date or other dialog. For the date I used the font "Chelt Press Light", which is a stamp that has a bit of a rubber stamped look to it.

Also, today's the big sale day at Digitals! My stuff is 25% off, and it looks like some of the other designers are selling around 25-30% off, as well. My prices are starting at $1.50 for the You and Me Word Art, which is a nice little pack. (In fact, I just used it yesterday.) Take a look if you get a chance, and have a great weekend!

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Sale on Friday!

As you can tell from the pic, I'll be having all my products on sale at Digitals on Friday, June 15th. I believe other Digitals designers will be having sales, too, although I am not sure who is participating. But, if you get a chance, hop over there on Friday and take a look! :)

New paper at Digitals and a free bonus here!

Now available exclusively at Digitals, it's my new Nature Twist Paper Pack! ( This pack features nature themes and grunge, with colors of purple, ruby/maroon, and cyan. I'm happy with the way these turned out, and I did two layouts with them at the Great American Scrapbook Convention crop I was at on Saturday. (I'll post all those later, or you can click on the examples at the above Digitals link for a preview.)
And, it's not in the pack, but here's the coordinating black solid for everyone to have! :) You can download it here: LINK RETURNING SOON!

new Dream Trip papers

For personal scrapbook use only. Everybody needs neutrals, right? I just thought it would be nice to make a couple of papers that were subtle and work with a lot of different types of LOs. If you've got a lot of pictures, or many different colors happening in your photos, these may be just the ticket. Download them here:, if anybody in the DFW area is going to GASC in Arlington, I'll be at the Saturday night crop and I'll see you there! :)

LO Shares and a new product

Now available at Digitals, my Dotty Doodle Paper Pack! This pack is interesting because it has a few papers in it with depth & texture, since I embossed the pattern on them. Blue and orange are the color scheme in this set, and it wasn't until last night that I realized how well this would work with my old Tigger picture. :) (The bottom border was made by making a selection based on one of the Not-So-Random Circles borders, and then "cutting" it out of one of the Dotty Doodle papers and giving it a Stroke outline.) You can find the paper pack here:

Friday, June 1, 2007

More stitches? Yup!

Here's another set of "X" stitches, plus 2 templates so you can cut/shape your paper to the stitch. If you're using PS or PSE, you can group the paper to the template. Other programs would probably work by using a tool like the Magic Wand to create a selection based on the shape. Sorry I can't be more helpful about other programs.

Note that shadows were added to the contact sheet; the stitches do not come with shadows.

Seebee's Freebies Stitch Set 1

Here's another set with stitches. First, the 5 x 7 inch rounded corner stitch "frame" comes without a shadow; one was added to the contact sheet for visibility's sake. I also have 2 versions of the second stitch, the multi stitch. You can use the unshadowed version with your own shadowing, and I have also provided a version with shadows & highlights. I've included a page edge shadow, too. If you look at the contact sheet where the two papers meet, you'll see some shadowing & highlights that make little puckers around where the stitches hit. That is in the page shadow. (If you're not using the stitch to join two pieces of paper, you probably don't need it.) Just place the shadow below your paper layer and line it up with the stitching. I've left the opacity of that file up higher than it really should be, in order to help you place it. I definitely recommend lowering the opacity on it once you're happy with the placement.

I based that multi stitch on a very odd source: my cargo capri pants that are my favorite lounging pants. LOL! BTW, after making it and placing it on the contact sheet, it's my opinion that the stitch is a bit tall. When I tested squishing it down with the transform handles, it squished very nicely. :) The contact shows it unsquished, though.

Layout Share today


I've spent the past couple of days doing a lot of computer backup work, but I took some time yesterday to do this layout of my daughter's second birthday. I'm happy to say I've FINALLY uploaded some layouts to be printed; I've been very neglectful of printing lately. See, this is why I'm wanting my next big purchase to be an Epson R1800 printer. :D Anyways, since I had a lot of pictures to scrap, I did this layout "magazine style", so there's not a lot of embellishments. You'll notice the recent journaling strips, and I used a retinted portion of a Girly Girl paper. Fonts are CAC Pinafore, Rebecca Script, and Denise Sans. LOL, I just realized I forgot the date, but hopefully it's implied these were taken on her birthday.

I had an idea for a Dream Trip embellishment, but I'm not so sure I like how it turned out. So, I'll try to rework it & see how it goes. I've also got plans for a couple more stitched elements and something else, so there should be a new download or two in the next week.

The return of yesterday's freebie plus a bonus

Yesterday's snafu was indeed a naming problem; 4share's bot caught the word "strip" in the title and shut it down. LOL! Ok, it's renamed and I also added this fabric strip to the download. Two for the price of one! :) Here's the new download link:

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Ok, the deal with the freebie today & some Digitals news

I *think* I've figured out that the problem with the download at 4shared was related to a naming problem more than anything. So...tomorrow, I plan to reupload the file and try again. :) And, I do plan to have the stitching freebies uploaded by the end of the weekend, so keep an eye out for that.
Speaking of freebies, due to Digitals recent site problems, we're having a sort of "Customer Appreciation" time there. Several designers have offered up a few free gifts, and I am in the process of putting up the alpha I used in the layout I posted earlier today. Can I just say how much I LOVE that alpha? :D I was very pleased with the way it turned out, and it's a complete upper & lower case alpha, plus 0-9 and more punctuation marks than I've offered in my other alphas. I'll put up a post when it's available so you can snag it.

Tiny Freebie today

This one will probably be most helpful to someone just starting out, since I suppose many of these journaling strips are all over the place. :) I actually don't own too many of them myself, so I created this one for a layout I just did. This is a small .jpg file so it won't take up much hard drive space.

So...let's update, shall we? I'm in a stitching mood lately! I've got plans for a couple of circular stitch embellishments for this blog, plus I have an entire lovely alpha coming soon as a *freebie* to Digitals, I hope. :)

UPDATE: I had a problem with 4shared yesterday, but here's the link:

Digitals store is back (almost)

If you log into Digitals, you'll see that most of the store is up & running again. There's still some work to be done involving files that were uploaded after March 15th, so not all my products are listed right now. Hopefully all will be back to normal soon. Whew! :)

New freebie: Dream Trip Lace Ribbons

Ok, here's some irony. About a week ago, I came up with the idea to do some sort of lace eyelet-style ribbon. I created something and wasn't too happy with it, so I didn't post it. Well, on Wednesday or Thursday, I got my monthly tutorial from Scrapper's Guide, and guesss what it's about? Eyelet lace. LOL! So, after watching, I went back & reworked things and I'm a bit happier with the results this time. This is a set of 2 .png ribbon files. I went ahead and added a little shadowing to the edge since the transparency of the lace makes for tricky shadows. (BTW, if you're new to the blog, the stickpin on the contact sheet is offered in one of my previous posts.) The two ribbons are Mouse Swirl and Monogram Mouse. And you can download it here:
One other thing: we just got word that Digitals is having to rebuild the store database due to file corruption. :( So, they're working hard to get the store back up but it could take anywhere from 2-3 days. Just fyi. I do have a new product ready to add to the store once it's back up, and I'm pretty excited about it. :) You can get a preview by visiting my Digitals gallery here:
