Winter Branches #1
I needed some natural elements for a layout I was making, and apparently nobody is brave enough to extract evergreen branches without charging a fortune for them, so I photographed and extracted my own. These are priced a little higher than my usual element or papers kits, but I spent most of a week on them. Each spruce twig takes about 2 hours to extract, using the fastest clean method I know (by comparison, I extracted a small, simple maple leaf in 8 minutes the other day). It's a good thing I don't charge minimum wage for my time! :) As with all my products, these are commercial-use friendly with attribution in your credits document, or can also be used for personal layouts or S4H/S4O. See the associated new product announcement post on the store blog for the freebie wreath made with these elements (plus a couple of my snowflakes). The clusters are for demonstration purposes only and are not included in the download, though they will be going out to newsletter subscribers soon as a freebie. (I'll add them to the new subscriber welcome newsletter, as well, so if you miss the original newsletter, you'll still be able to get them for a few weeks.)

Steampunk Snowmen
If you're like me, you're always looking for that unique element to add to your kits, and these little guys certainly fit the bill for winter kits. They're extracted photos of a pair of little wooden figurines I found in a thrift store, and I've never seen anything like them since. If you've wanted to do a steampunk-type Christmas kit, here's inspiration for it! These are simply extracted PNGs in their original colors, but you can recolor them easily by painting a layer over them in color mode and clipping it to the originals. As always, they're commercial-use friendly.

Snowflake Illustrations #1
I love drawing snowflakes, and this is a collection of some of my favorites drawn over the last few months. They range in size from about 2.5 to 3.5 inches, just the perfect size to add a beautiful accent to your winter pages. As with all of my products, they're commercial-use friendly, but you're more than welcome to use them for personal projects as well.

Glitter Snowflakes #1
I have always loved snowflakes, whether drawing them or cutting them out of folded paper. This is a set I've hand-drawn in ArtRage with the glitter tube, and they're perfect for adding a little sparkle to a page. Many of them are designed to frame your photos, so I've included clipping masks as well. Of course, you could fill the center with a paper and use them for journaling tags or titles, too. There are 4 plain snowflakes, and 7 with open centers suitable for use as frames. The smallest is 1140 x 1309 pixels (approximately 3.3 inches diameter), while the largest is 1800 pixels (6 inches) square. They're big, but that lets you use them in place of a matte, as well, or resize down to fit your kit. Versatility is the name of the game in design, and these are flexible enough for almost anything you want to do with them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!
