  • Wilma4Ever Broadway Musicals Blog Train

    The Wilma4Ever Blog Train is hitting the tracks today drawing inspiration from Broadway Musicals. I had a blast going through all my soundtracks to narrow down my choice from the first cut of about 20 musicals to the final choice, “Wicked”! I didn’t go with the obvious “good witch/bad witch” idea though, instead choosing to take inspiration from the Broadway set and the music. Here are my two parts for the blog train; a mini kit and an alpha set. Click on the images below for direct download.

  • P4DSDesignz Forum Challenge! Summer Citrus & Melons

    I had such a blast seeing the layout creations that came out of last month’s layout challenge over at P4DSDesignz, that I decided to do it again…except with a twist…perhaps a citrus-y twist?!? I got inspired by all the fresh, crisp flavors and colors of Summer and the following kit resulted. Here’s a preview of the Challenge and Reward Kits.

  • Forum Challenge at P4DSDesignz!

    Posted on by Raye

    I’m branching out a little and hosting a layout challenge over at P4DSDesignz Forum. You’ll be given download links for the Just Yesterday Challenge Kit (3 download links). Previews below:
    Just Yesterday Challenge Kit PreviewJust Yesterday Challenge Kit Papers

    With this kit, you’ll be asked to create a layout around the theme of “Yesterday.”

    These kits were built around a mini kit I made for a challenge last year, but I loved the colors and the theme so much I have to revisit. SO…as a bonus, here is the original mini kit that I created, which you are welcome to use in the challenge along with the Challenge Kit.
    Just Yesterday Mini Kit preview

    Anyone creating a layout and posting it as a reply in the forum will receive the Just Yesterday Reward Kit….previews below:
    Just Yesterday Challenge Kit PreviewJust Yesterday Challenge Kit Papers

    All three kits combine into one coordinated PU/S4H/S4O scrap kit with 28 papers and 113 elements and lots of vintage-y, steampunk-y, heritage-y goodness!

    Come play with me in the P4DSDesignz Forum!

    P.S. You will be asked to register for the forum before you will be allowed to participate or grab your Just Yesterday Challenge Kit and there may be a slight delay on approval, since we have to screen out the evil, malicious spammers….so fair warning!  Once you have registered and been approved, scroll down to “Forum Challenges” and look for RayesDesign Challenges!
