This week’s challenge at Stuff to Scrap was to create a mini-kit using a picture of a quilt made by Deanna as inspiration. I looked at the pics she gave us and thought for a long time. Then, I made a list of all the things that came to mind when I examined the quilt. The list included ideas such as farms, outdoors, playgrounds, tea parties, birthdays, pets, dinosaurs, even boo-boos, lol. I wanted my kit to be original, and I know there really aren’t enough “boy” kits out there, so I decided to do a dinosaur kit!

I hand-drew the dinosaurs using my new Bamboo pen tablet and made my own frames using wood textures that I had photographed and glitter that I created. I really like this kit and plan to add to it and turn it into a full-size kit when this competition is done! Click the preview to get the download links from the Stuff to Scrap forum, then scroll down for a quick page freebie that I made using my kit. Be sure to stop by Stuff to Scrap on Friday and Saturday to vote for me! Thanks and I hope you are enjoying the freebies!

And here is the QP freebie. Click the preview to download from 4Shared.

Happy Scrapping!

It’s Week 2 of the Designer Darling Contest at Stuff to Scrap and that means more freebies for you!!!

This week was quite a challenge. We had a really bright palette to work with and could only use the CU items provided by Deanna from Flower Scraps and things that we made ourselves. So, I spent Monday evening running around my house taking pictures of everything from my kitchen floor to my son’s bedroom curtains, looking for some fantastic textures for my papers. Check out the green plaid! It’s from a pair of shorts that got handed down to my son! Then, Tuesday, I scanned in a piece of aluminum foil to make the texture for my alpha and guitar. There is a wonderful tutorial on the Stuff to Scrap forum for making glitter! I love the way it turned out! I used the sponge filter to add some lighter “sparkle!” I am so glad I joined this competition! I am learning so much!

Anyway, click the preview to head over to Stuff to Scrap so you can snag my entry (look in the Week 2: Challenge Previews). Don’t forget to vote for me while you are there! Then, scroll down and pick up another freebie. It’s an add-on to my Week 1 Entry, “A Winter’s Day!”

I hope you like my entry! Aren’t those colors bright? Oh, and check out that flower! It was growing in my garden this past summer! I just love lilies! That is it’s natural color! Perfect for this color palette, don’t you think???

As promised, here is the add-on to my week 1 entry.  Click the preview to download from 4Shared. I don’t think I’ll have an add-on for Week 2. As fun as this kit was to make, I just don’t like the colors, lol. I’ll have to think of something else good for you!

Enjoy and Happy Scrapping!

Click the preview of my mini-kit, “A Winter’s Day,” to pick up my entry as well as that of the other contestants. Then, scroll down for a free template from me!

I made several of the elements myself! Some are scanned and extracted, like the snowflakes, others I hand-drew, like the mittens! I hope you enjoy the kit and are able to make good use of it!

Now, another freebie for you! I made a template of my layout from yesterday. At this time, it’s only in .psd format. Again, just click the preview of the template to download it from 4Shared.

Hello!  It’s the beginning of a new month and you know what that means… Blog Train Time! I’ve got two trains for you this month. The first the Stuff to Scrap train: Afternoon Delight. Let me tell you, I have been driving my husband crazy singing that song this past month, lol.  What’s funny about it is that I keep singing the same two lines over and over.

Before I post the link to my part, I wanted to tell you about a designer program I joined at Scrap It Sassy. Erin, the owner, is awesome, and she put together this fantastic workshop. I’m hoping this will help me grow as a designer and put together better and better kits! It’s called the Secret Sassy Designers. There is a special going on right now. If you buy anything in the store, you get an order number. If your number matches one of the numbers Erin has posted, you get to pick a free item from any of the Secret Sassy Designers. Stop by and check it out!!!

Hey, there!

I’m back with that blog train I promised! Sorry I didn’t get to put up the quick page like I said I would. We had a very eventful weekend, starting with a flat tire on my way home from work Friday. It went downhill from there. Our a/c stopped working Friday night and then I had to take my dd to the doctor’s Saturday to get a bug bite on her hand looked at. To make a long story short, I just didn’t have much free time!

Anyway, I have a couple of things for you today. First, I just wanted to remind you about the sale at Scrap It Sassy. 30 % off everything in my store, including my new stuff.
