I have a had a bit of a template frenzy so you will see that there are literally dozens of new ones in my CatDesignz store including these lovely Friendship photobooks.

Friendship Photobook – 22 pages including front & back covers

Friendship Photobook 2 by Celeste Lombas


Many of the stunning new ones have been made by 2 talented ladies from my Creative team – Ann Flynn & Celeste Lombard who have worked like demons in order to get all their stuff live for National Scrapbooking day for you.

  1. Wow, Catherine! You are so generous with your freebies. These are all beautiful designs. I’m a little partial to the Mother’s Day Quote. Thanks!

    • I was a little undecided whether to offer it today Jill as it was a freebie in time for Mothers day here a few weeks ago but I knew that a lot of people missed it first time around

  2. Hi, Catherine. It’s me again. :)
    My favorite kit is ‘Birthday Circus Kit’ by A-Manda Creations. Sorry to pick such an expensive one, but with my grandaughter’s and best friend’s daughter’s (my ‘adopted’ daughter) birthdays this month, I couldn’t resist the theme and vibrant primary colors.

    My that’s a lot of apostrophes in one sentence…lol.

  3. oh, so sorry Jill, it has to be one of my kits, Amanda is really generous and its a gorgeous kit but she’d fall over laughing if I asked her to donate a kit to my givaway!. Check out her blog though as you never know, she may be running a competition today as well
    heres the link for you to chose from my kits
    I’ve just addded the link on the blog post to make it a little clearer for people as I didn’t originally say it was only from my store – sorry about that x

  4. LOL – I am clearly a dork, because it took me forever to find where to comment! Love the stuff you are offering Cat! One of my favorite items in your store is the “Naughty or Nice Wordart” – VERY CUTE!
    :) Mags / MagsGraphics

    • its the only drawback to this blog template Mags! – I love the facility to have the pictures nice and big but as big as the pictures are the comments section is teeny tiny!!

  5. Thank you so much for all the freebies! I dearly love everything you do, but the newest on my wish list is “Always Blessed Photobook.”

  6. Thank you for the great freebies – perfect timing! (I would love to win your Serephina Steampunk kit. Beautiful colors and elements.)
    Also, I just purchased your lovely Child of My Heart kit. I’ve been wanting to do some pages for my close friend who has adopted a beautiful little girl from China. Love it, love it!

    • I’m so happy you picked up the adoption kit Denise, my friend Amanda is adopting 5 little ones from Bulgaria – you might have seen some of their pictures that I scrapped with the kit in an earlier blog post. I am also making a ‘Gotcha’ kit too.

    • Purple heart was one of the first kits I ever made Bev so I have a softspot for it! But the photobook is brand new – so glad its in store for this weekend, there are also some 4 page template sets too

  7. Thanks for the freebies! I love the alpha and I love the FRIENDS quick page. So cute!! I would love to win a free kit!

    • thanks Heather – I rarely make alphas as I tend to do wordarts – instant gratification but this is a lovely sunny spring one, puts me in mind of a linnen union tablecloth thats been washed til it frayed!

  8. I enjoyed looking through your store! I really like “A Year In Copper Frames” and would love to win them!
    Thank you for all the fabulous gifts.

  9. Thanks so much for the freebies! And so sweet to have a fiveaway also! I really like the Weathered Floral Embellishments
    . Awesome ♥

  10. 5! How wonderful. Really liked the bunny swing, Thank you.

    Have too many lovely things in your store. Was too hard to pick just one. Really liked the alpha in Happy Fourth of July, but then the papers were so pretty in Tropical Patchwork Photobook

    • /+*9-+938245594*–+9*

      lol that was my mad puppy jumping on the key board – roughly translated it says leave that silly scrapbooking alone and play fetch with me Mum!

      ps he likes the bunny swing too!

  11. You are so generous to give 5 freebies to your readers, thanks. You have amazing pages in your store also. Even though I would not use the adoption one I think it is fantastic that you made a package for those who could use it. I like a lot of your packages but being a quilter, Granny’s Quilt Templete 2 really caught my eye.

    • I made that one for some family wedding pictures that I have – been so busy uploading everything to the store this week that I didn’t have chance to include any samples but its really striking with pictures in

  12. What cute pages! I love the Just Beachy Seaside Albumn – beautiful but understated enough to let the beach pictures shine.

    • Hi Katrina, I’m working on a ‘Gotcha’ kit right now which I know you’ll love – you’ll get a sneaky preview on little Ethan’s Gotcha day next week!

  13. Thanks for the freebies and I hope I win the contest you are running. This is going to be so much fun.. and I am just beginning to collect the freebies. I finally purchased some kits yesterday, also. So I will have a lot of new stuff to play with.

    • the blog hop is a great way of adding to your stash and getting some inspiration at the same time – hope you enjoy the rest of the journey through the blogs

      • I missed the fact that we were supposed to tell you which of your kits we would pick if we won… so I am adding that… I would choose Cupcake Heaven or Celeste or Marina Combo Pack… they all look so good, I couldn’t choose only one.

    • Celestial was made by my Creative Team member Celeste Lombas – she has such a great eye, it turned out a really beautiful album and I know sh’e reading these comments so she will be made up that you love it so much

  14. Wow! Thanks, Cat! If I won, I think I’d get the Child of My Heart kit, but I’m always changing my mind. Who knows what I’d actually get!

  15. Thanks so much! Anything you create is remarkable. If I were to have my choice I think I would chose Granny’s Quilt. Thanks for sharing!

  16. You know that I think your stuff is the BEST! :) Love the freebies! Your love for my babies coming home makes me love you too and not just your stuff though!

    • Love You too Amanda, I am working on that Gotcha kit for your babies (though one of the wordart might get an early showing for little Ethan this week!)

    • My CT have been wonderful, and I know they are reading these comments Yobeth so they will really appreciate that you took the time to thank them, as do I x

  17. Thanks so much for all the cute freebies! You are all wonderful to work so hard to make this a great blog hop!

  18. Hey Cat; first off I would love to thank you and your fabulous team for the fantastic freebies, I love them all.
    Next thanks for the great opportunity to win ……. The photobook …… It would be the best for me cause I love ordering books and just to insert pics would make life a little bit easier.

    • my CT worked so hard helping me getready for NSD – big shout out to Celeste Lombas and Ann Flynn who made many of the gorgeous templates which are new in my store right now and to Rachel DeVaughan and Linda Perrotta for their unfailing love and support

  19. Thank you so much for all the freebies!! If I were to win your draw, I would like the Creme de la Creme kit. It is GORGEOUS!!

  20. You so kind and wounderful for all the freebies I think it would be a hard choose to chose just one I love your work so much thanks again for your hard work.
    but I think I would choose one of your photobooks

  21. Thank you for the great freebies! I would love A New Year a New You kit. They are all great and whoever wins will be one luck hombre.

  22. You are your team put together a fabulous collection of freebies and you did such a great job of promoting the blog train! Way to go! Christine Smith || Owner –

  23. Thanks for everything you are offering. For the giveaway, I would LOVE to win the Tropical Album- it would be wonderful for my pictures from my trip to Hawaii this August.

  24. Thank you so much for the freebies – I can’t wait to play with some things! I’m not sure if I love digital or paper scrapbooking the most – but if you all keep this up -it’ll be DIGITAL for sure!

  25. WOW! Don’t you just spoil us with all these freebies. Love them and especially love the Weathered Floral QP. Thank you so much. It is really great to have this chance to win a kit or photo album. You have so many beautiful designs here that it’s almost impossible to select one over the other. I would love a chance to win a photo album. I am scanning loads of my old ancestors’ pictures and trying to restore them. So many are in a very poor condition. There were so many gorgeous albums but if I have to make a choice for just one I think the Family is my choice for now. May have to see what coordinates with it as I am planning to separate my scanned pictures into 3 albums for paternal, maternal and my current family with my kids and grandkids. Any suggestions you may have for me? God bless you and your family abundantly.

  26. Love the freebies and the train too. Which would I like to win??? Decisions!! Maybe Cupcake Heaven – or maybe New Year New Me – or any one of your fabulous designs.
