Moonlight Romance Mini Kit + Cluster + Add-On Freebie

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! Hope you made it through Black Friday with some great deals!

This week’s submission for the Go Digital Scrapbooking Designer Contest is called “Moonlight Romance”. It is based on this palette of shades of dusty purple.

GDS Round 3 Palette

Our challenge was to use only default tools from our software and any items we photographed or extracted ourselves. This limiting factor helped shape what types of kits I attempted to create. My wedding colors were lavender, so after looking at the palette I figured I could make a kit around romance. I found several tutorials online very useful for this challenge and created a mini kit that I am very happy with.

Hot Air Balloon Mini Kit Correction

I received my feedback from the judges in the GoDigitalScrapbooking.com Designer Contest. They found that one of my papers was missing a bit of pattern at the bottom of the page. I have corrected this issue and lightened up the whole paper just a touch. You can download the corrected paper here. I will also change the original download link so if you have downloaded the file after 11/17/12, you will not need this correction.

Thanks for stopping by. Sorry for the need for this correction!

Hot Air Balloon Ride Add-on

A LITTLE EXTRA FOR YOU!

This challenge I tried to create a few more elements rather than relying on CU products only. My felt hot air balloon just wasn’t quite ready at deadline time, so I took a few more days to fix the QC issues. I also added a few extras for you too! You can pick up the Mini kit at the GDS Gallery.

Bucket List…Hot Air Balloon Ride?

So what is on your bucket list? That was our challenge for Round 2 of the Go Digital Scrapbooking Designer Contest with this photo as our palette selector.

Round 2 Palette

At first, I considered using the theme painting. The bright, vibrant colors would work well with that theme…and I would like to paint. As I began to think about it, I realized I didn’t really have a bucket list, per se. So I thought I would go out on the web and see what other people had on their bucket list. Some people have very strange things on their lists! But I guess they are their lists and not mine. I came across a Hot Air Balloon Ride… I looked at the palette picture and realized this would be the perfect theme for this kit.

That being said, I realize that a hot air balloon ride is not high on my list of things to do before I kick the bucket, but it would be a great experience to have. And just think of all the great photos I could take! Now I have a mini kit to scrap those moments…just in case I ever do get my hot air balloon ride. Here is my mini kit!

Bucket List: Hot Air Balloon Ride is available through a link in the GDS Gallery for the next two weeks. I created a few of the elements and learned new techniques to recolor/revamp a few others. I am very happy with the way this kit turned out! I am working on a few more pieces to this that I will have ready by Friday (I hope)! Bookmark my blog so you can come back and pick up the other piece to this kit.

Thanks for stopping!

A Peek of Paisley…a mini kit freebie!

After years of considering it, I have decided to try designing some of my own digital scrapbooking kits through a Designer contest over at Go Digital Scrapbooking. I have no idea if this will work for me right now, but decided I would never know if I didn’t at least try. For our first assignment, we were given this palette.

Round 1 Palette

I love the brown teamed up with the green and blue. The orange gave a little energy to the palette. Once I laid the blue background down to start the first paper, I just knew that I would end up using the paisley shape somewhere in my kit. Adding the paisley overlay in brown set the tone for my entire mini kit. I chose to add some grunge or glitter to the edges of my papers to add a little dimension to my papers. I have worked for Aimee Harrison Design Studios & Snips and Snails Designs for so long that it is very difficult for me to use papers that have very little texture and/or depth. I kept their beautiful patterned papers and elements in mind while designing this mini kit.

You can download this mini kit for 2 weeks only at the GDS gallery!
