About

My name is Kyra, I live in the Netherlands with my husband Jan. After 15 years being together we finally got married in august 2007! I was born in the year 1953, so i’m not a puppy anymore! In Holland at that time there was a big flood, a real disaster and who was born in that period? ME. Has that some meaning???

My mother was Russian and my father was Dutch. I love gardening, cooking, cooking and of course scrapbooking. I started to make my own digikits and hope to put them on my blog, as freebies. I have 3 cats, no kids, and have a quite busy life. Oh, I also play the piano, like to read, watch British detectives on tv and have lots more of interests.

  1. Hi,
    I found your website a month or so ago and I just wanted to thank you for all the freebies you find. I know it takes much of your time and it is much appreciated. I’m new to digital scrapping and barely know what to do with what I’m downloading. Anyway, thanks again.
    Sincerely, Barbara

  2. Hallo Kyra, zoheee ineens allamaal links naar jouw blog !! Ik dacht wat is daar aan de hand ! 🙂 Nu is het duidelijk !
    Ook bij mij kan je reclame maken voor je designs!! Ben blij dat er sites als deze (en de mijne) zijn !
    Kun je mij ajb even mailen of ik ook aan kan geven als ik weer een nieuwe freebie heb gemaakt?
    Suc6 met je blog!!

  3. I’ve just started a blog and am offering some overlays and templates. I’ve enjoyed reading yours and thought perhaps you’d like to see my stuff and possibly add me to your list! Thanks so very much!

  4. Hello Kyra
    Today I have discovered your blog and have spent a wonderful day reading back through to the beginning. In the process I have also downloaded some of your freebies, they are great. I have found your stories marvellous and have enjoyed them all. The family stories interlaced with your current life has been awesome. Your family history is amazing “Anna Pavlova”, the wars, it is all amazing. I kept expecting a freebie with a French theme to happen with all the talk of France, maybe at a later time. I wanted to wish you and Jan a beautiful wedding experience and that you will be very happy with each other for evermore. I have bookmarked your site and plan to be a regular visitor to your site.
    Bye for now

  5. Hi Kyra,

    My name is Julie Jenkins and I live in Toccoa, GA
    USA. I found your site several months ago, but just figured out how to send you a comment to let you know how much I appreciate what you do.
    I love hearing about your family. The history has been very educational to me and I can’t wait to hear even more.

    Congraulations to you and Jan! If possible put up some pictures of the big day for us to see.

    Thank you again for what you do each day.
    Also your designs are awesome.

    Your friend in Toccoa, Georgia, USA

  8. OH, Dearest Kyra, what a wonderful lady you are, thank you so much for my Visitors’ Award. HUGS!! I’m overwhelmed and pleased that my few polite words of thanks and acknowledgement of your talent and generosity have earned this kind gesture by you.
    Yes, I visit your blog at early hours – often in the middle of the night actually, because I have FMS (a rheumatic condition) and I don’t sleep very well. I usually spend the night on my laptop visiting blogs such as yours while my hubby is snoring his head off next to me. LOL. I’ve just started classes at Go Digital Scrapbooking to learn Photoshop CS3 as I would love to be able to design some things myself – and to offer them as freebies just as you do. You are our angel on earth and an inspiration to all of us. Bye for now, dear Kyra. Hugs and Blessings. 🙂 Monica.

  9. How do I download any of your freebies? There is no link for downloading. They are lovely.

  10. hi and thanks

  11. HI I FOUND YOUR SITE BUT I AM HAVING TROUBLE USING THE ELEMENTS AS I AM UNABLE TO DRAG THEM ONTO MY LAYOUTS LIKE I CAN WITH THE PAPERS. THE PROGRAM I AM USING IS ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 5. CAN YOU HELP. GLENICE FROM DOWN UNDER.

  15. Hi Kyra, I am so glad I found your blog and all your freebies. My goodness, it doesn’t seem like just saying thank you is enough to express my gratitude. You have inspired many to start digi scrapbooking and what a great hobby that is. God Bless you.

    Hugs

  17. Kyra, I love your work! Your kit ideas are so unique…not like everyone else’s flowers, bows, etc.

    Thanks,
    Sharon

  18. Hi Kyra,

  26. Hi kyra, I found your site yesterday and I was very impressed with all the wonderful kits you have created. It is a great pleasure to discover so many original papers and elements. Thank you very much for your generosity.

  27. I just downloaded you Polska kit. Me and my boyfriend are going to Warzaw on Wednesday, and I’m planning to take alot of pictures. This kit is perfect for scrapping some layouts from our trip. Thank you so much for sharing!

  28. I love your work, and was wondering if I could do some quick pages using your kits. Of course I would reference your kit name and web address. I could either put them on my blog or yours, and I’d like to advertise it as a freebie. Please let me know before I offer this to someone else. You may see my current work at http://victorianquickpageparlor.blogspot.com/
    Thanks

  29. Hi Kyra, I’ve made a layout with your “Easy Rider” kit, and I will be displaying it on my blog. I would send it to you first, but I don’t know where to send it. Your kits are beautiful. Thanks so muchl Hugs, Edna B.

  30. Hi Kyra. Time to update your “About”. It says you live in the Netherlands with your FRIEND, Jan! LOL
    I am sure he is your friend but I know you are proud of your marriage, and so you should be.
    Hugs, Jenny

  38. Hallo Kyra,
    Hele mooi site die jij hebt, en al die kits, geweldig!!
    Ik ben nog niet zo lang bezig met scrappen, en probeer nu ook eigen kits te maken.
    Maar ja dan heb je wel dingen nodig die je kan en MAG gebruiken, heb niet zoveel tijd om alles zelf te maken.
    Nu zag ik hele mooie dingen in jouw kits, maar vraag me dus af of ik die mag gebruiken in mijn eigen kits, die ik dan wil publiceren op mijn eigen BLOG, en ze delen met andere scrappers.
    Het is zeker niet de bedoeling om er geld uit te slaan, want ik wil ze niet verkopen, alleen maar delen.
    Omdat ik bij jouw kits geen TOU kan vinden, en ook niet op jouw site, en ik kan ook geen mail adres van jouw vinden op jouw site, vraag ik het jouw op deze manier, omdat ik zeker wil weten of ik dingen uit jouw kit WEL of NIET mag gebruiken.
    Ik hoop dat je mij een antwoord kunt geven, GRAAG via mijn mailadres.
    Alvast Hartelijk Dank, en vooral voor jouw mooie werk.
    Groetjes Heande

  39. Hoi Kyra,
    Geniet van je scrapkits. Heb een probleem met elementen van Wolfsong. Die zijn alleen met de achtergrond te kopiëren en niet als tube. Klopt dat? Weet je een oplossing?
    Alvast bedankt.
    groetjes, Jopie

  43. Love your work! Thanks for sharing. Any chance you could email me? Hugs, Becky Jo

  44. Greetings from Texas! I found your website tonight and just wanted you to know that I believe that you are the most talented digital artist that I have ever seen. Thank from the bottom of my heart for being so generous and sharing your beautiful work. I downloaded many items and will treasure them. I wanted the Canada item from last year so much as my late husband and I honeymooned there but it wouldn’t let me download it anymore. If you ever have time please send me a line or two! I know you are probably quite busy, but I am half dutch if you notice my last name is Neatherlin. My dad’s family actually came from Holland and I am so fascinated with it. I would love to hear from you if you ever have the time. I would also love to hear from you because I admire your work so much. Thank you again and God Bless!! Joni

  51. Hi: Just wanted to thank you for all the cool kits you have made available to us. Yours are the best I have found. Many Thanks.
    Also, for the person who said she was having a problem dragging them into her layout in Photoshop Elements, I had the same problem at first. Then I figured it out that you have to change them from indexed colour to RBG; go to Image, Mode to do this.

  52. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.

  53. i am french and i digiscrap for few time (not long) but i love your kits freebies ! thank you very much pour ours….

    my english is bad…. i hope your understand me….

  54. Hi Kyra,
    I just found your site and your work is lovely. I love the diversity in the themes. I would love to use your kits but after I download them and open the elements in PSP they all have backgrounds and I have to re-tube them. Am I doing something wrong, or are all your kits in .png format and not .psp. Please help, I have some family projects some of your kits would be perfect for.

    Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. I do appreciate you! Hope to hear from you. Thank you again!

  55. I have been getting nothing from your website have you stopped the wonderful freebies, you have the best Asian download I have seen,you have so much helped with your free downloads, hope you have not stopped.

  56. Hi Kyra,
    I found your site while researching for criminal information on Joni Neatherlin. I believe she contacted you in May 2008 while on the run from the police in Granbury, TX for several crimes she has committed. Ms. Neatherlin has served time in our county, state and federal prisons over the last 20 years for various scams. My reason for contacting you is to inform you in the event you have conducted business with her and she has defrauded you to contact the Hood County Sheriff’s office at 817-579-3316 and speak with Kathy Boone.

  57. I have bee away when I got back had to go to your wonderful freebies the 2 China freebies I am unable to get them up as .a diffrent sight on dating comes up .
    As I love your Asian Freebies so very much
    Hope you can help me
    Cheers Grace Fielden
