Digital Magic + freebie

When I got my spot as a designer at the Little Dreamer Designs, the main focus was hybrid scrapbooking. It worked like this: I do the trial and error; you skip the errors and uncertainty and go straight to the goody finished project, ok? :) I like creating things that are not available out there. I don’t feel like a "designer", I can’t design beautiful paper and elements (not for lack of trying), but I can still help people create their scrapbooks, even if it is just by sharing my experience.

Having said that, I am a digital scrapper too, so you might have noticed I started to put some page templates on the store for simple digital pages, I am calling the series "Playing with Paper". Because I am a digital scrapper, I spend a lot of time around the computer, so I had the idea of starting to share stuff a digital scrapper would like to have in her computer. I am going to call this series "Digital Magic" (I like saying we can work "magic" LOL).

The first set in this new series are 12 Desktop Wallpapers Templates, one for each month of 2009.

Desktop Wallpaper Calendar templates

Here are two samples I created, my husband has been asking for these for over a year:

April 2009 Wallpaper Calendar July 2009 Wallpaper Calendar

As you can see, you can mix and match and use the templates as you wish :) So you can understand what I am talking about, I decided to share another freebie. Here is a template for the remaining months of the year:

Digital Magic Freebie


I created this desktop wallpaper with the template:

desktop wallpaper calendar v1

And for hubby's computer I created this one:

desktop wallpaper calendar v2

I hope you like it and, if you use the template, let me see what you create :)

Lastly, let me know what you would like to see in this product series. Next in line are blog header templates!

ETA. Léa, the CALENDAR FREEBIES are coming :)

UAU!!! AMEI!!! Estou baixando enquanto visito seu blog e pensando no que fazer... estou louca por esta DAM... mas estou aguardando a Nancie C. dizer se o CT do SA vai recebê-la ou comprá-la... eu vou botar minhas mãos em uma com certeza, independente com CT ou sem CT :) Vale MUITO a pena!

these are AWESOME. Thanks so much for the freebie. I love that it lasts for more than one month!!

I love these. But I would also love to start seeing wallpapers with the option to have the stuff on the left. Most Macs, by default have the HD and documents etc. mounted on the right side. So it's always hard to adjust wallpaper templates that have the calendars on them. =) I'd love to see a right and left version. Just a thought!

Thank you so much!!

Thanks so much, Michelle! And thanks again for the DAM - there is some GOLDEN stuff in there. Your feature is awesome too! I am blown away by that magazine... WOW.

I really love the desktops. Even though you don't consider yourself a "designer," you have really made a name for yourself by creating unique and not-so-common products.

I love this series. Sorry no new ideas for you - I leave the creativity up to everyone else and then usurp it:)

Obrigada pelo freebie!
