  • Next Designer Contest at the Studio! Round 2 Mini Kit & QP Freebies

    This round’s challenge was to incorporate Art Journaling into a mini kit with 10 elements, 4 papers and 3 paint/stamp/splat/splotch elements. This challenge was difficult for me at first because, though I’ve kept an art journal since high school, I’ve never shared it with anyone and it is one of the only things in my life that I haven’t attempted to convert to a digital format. Fortunately, I had YEARS of inspiration to draw on. I hope you like my bold & artsy adventure into digital art journaling. This kit has been divided into 2 download zips and a 3rd for the matching quick page. Links will follow the images.

  • 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.

  • Round 3 of Next Designer Challenge at The Studio

Click on the preview below to pick up your free kit from The Studio and check out the other submissions. There are 2 downloads this time, since the add-on kit is a 65 piece Alpha Set (Upper & lower case, numbers and 3 symbols).

    I decided to make a few extra papers to give everyone who comes by for a visit, since I had such a hard time choosing only 4 papers to put into the actual kit. Click on the preview for a direct download of these extra papers (4 suede papers & the glittered plaid that I used on most of my embellishments).

  • Digital Scrapbooking Design Contest at The Studio

    My number 1, top priority store is holding a contest for their next designer, so of course I HAD to play!! This is my submission for the first of three rounds of challenges, a mini kit with 4 papers, 10 unique elements and 3 word arts. Cobalt blue and cypress green were the two colors given to build our own palette around, and I opted to use both, but more of the cobalt, since it reminds me of sapphires (my birthstone). Click on the preview to go to The Studio to pick up this mini kit!
