    The Wilma4Ever Blog Train pulls out of the station tonight with a bright palette inspired by the colors in the city in the evening.  My portion of the train includes 16 papers (yes, I do realize that there are only 14 on the preview, but black and white are kinda boring) & 12 unique elements that have all been recolored multiple times for a total of 88.  Since I got a little carried away, the download files have been divided into 4 zip files (2 papers, 2 elements) and links can be found below the preview.

  • Next Designer Contest at the Studio!! Round 1 Kit and Matching QP Freebies

    Well September is a time for all kinds of celebrations! I share my birthday month with The Studio and they have all kinds of fun contests and challenges going on among them, their annual Next Designer Contest. I decided that since I’m a year older, and have more than 5 minutes experience with designing this time around that I would give it another whirl!! Round 1 requires 10 elements, 4 patterned papers, 5 word bits inspired by traditional scrapping. My first thought honed in on memories of the old scrapbooks my granny had tucked away in trunks in her old farmhouse. I choose subtle, faded/aged hues of her favorite colors to match the Vintage Memories of those previous treasures. My submission for the contest is shown below. Click on the preview below for a direct download.

    RayesDesign Vintage Memories Mini Kit Freebie

    I also made ya’ll a quick page using the mini kit. You can download it directly by clicking on the preview below.
