'Fall Affair' by Bekah E. Designs

Well, I didn't make it to the 4th round in theStudio's Next Designer Contest :-(  I was a little sad when the results were posted, but I learned a lot and I can work on my designing a little more (using what I've learned).  It was a wonderful contest, full of super talented ladies, and I'm sure the judges had a hard time choosing only 10 contestants to go forward.

Anyway, recently I was able to work with an absolutely beautiful kit created by Bekah E. Designs called 'Fall Affair'.

 It has a very elegant feel to it and a beautiful color scheme featuring shades of teal, brown, rust and gold.  It's currently on sale for 40% off, so hurry over to her store at Scrappity-Doo-Dah and pick it up!

Here's a layout that I did using this wonderful kit...

I will be participating in a design contest over at Scrapping Fairytales starting October 1st, so be sure to come back and snag the freebies that I'll be making!

Round 3 Mini Kit Freebie - and an add-on!!

I'm a few days late posting this, but I've made it to Round 3 of theStudio's Next Designer Contest!  Wahoo!!

This round was very difficult, as it was the infamous 'No CU' round.  Everything in the kit had to be made by us!  We could use our camera, scanner and any tools that came with our design software or computer.  We were given a theme, 'The Evening News' and color palette, but could add a pop of color to it.

I had so much fun making this kit, even though it stretched my designing 'chops'.  I loved making the papers and have an add-on for all of you, as I got a little carried away with them!!

Here is the preview of my mini kit...

Here are the download links for the papers and the ellies.

And here is the preview of the papers add-on...

You can click on the preview or here to download.

I hope you enjoy it!  Don't forget to stop by theStudio to see the other entries and download some wonderful goodies!!

I've made it to Round 2!! and a freebie...

I made it through to round 2 of theStudio's Next Designer Contest!

It was a little harder this round - We were given a theme/name 'Summer Afternoon' and a preview template and we had to come up with our own color palette, 6 papers and at least 20 ellies, including 1 cluster.
I immediately thought of late summer afternoons - the greens and pinks, the flowers...

Here's my preview and the link to the kit.  Also, don't forget to check out the rest of the entries; the talent is huge and everyone's entry is so unique.  This challenge really let our individual style show.

I hope you enjoy it!

NDC 2011 at theStudio - Mini kit freebie

Yippee!!  I've decided to join in the Next Designer Contest over at theStudio, which is going on throughout the month.  I really would like to take the plunge into designing and thought that this would be a perfect learning experience for me.  I did do it last year and had a blast!

Our first challenge was to come up with a mini kit containing 5 papers and 12 unique elements with 'Daybreak' as our theme.  Our color palette was made up of soft blues, pinks, purples and grays; perfect early morning colors!

Here's what I came up with - Daybreak mini
You can download it here, or click on the preview.

There are many, many talented entries, so go take a look in the gallery and grab a few freebies, too!!

'Indian Summer' by Farynar's Wings

Hi Everyone!

I have a beautiful new kit to share with you; it's called 'Indian Summer' by Farynar's Wings.  It has fourteen papers (eight solids) and many gorgeous elements, along with a full alpha, which includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers and most punctuation.

As you can see from the preview, it contains all the beautiful colors that you'd expect for an 'end of summer' kit; gorgeous bold plums, yellows, turquoise and greens, just to name a few.

It can be found exclusively at Scrappity-Doo-Dah, so go check it out today!!

Here's a layout that I did using the kit, as well as a template from 'Summer Ends Template Pack' by Jellebelleke's Designs, which can also be found at SDD.

New Template Pack from Alegna - and a Freebie. Really!

Okay, I have to admit that I completely forgot to upload the freebie that I've been teasing you with the past few posts.  It's all set now and you'll find it at the bottom of this post.

First, I want to tell you (gush) about Alegna's new template pack.  It's called Memory Blocks Vol. 1 and is perfect for all scrappers.  It has templates for those of us who love 'white space' and for those of you who like full page layouts.  Go check it out!  It's on sale for 25% off - but only for this weekend!  She also has an awesome freebie on her blog, as well.

Here's my layout using one of the templates...

And, since it's the last weekend of the month, Scrappity-Doo-Dah is having their $1.00 Tweets sale.  Perfect time to 'dust' off your Paypal account!  Hurry - it only lasts for the weekend!

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for, hopefully!  I have a cute little snail that was made using Alla's portion of the SDD July Mega Grab Bag.  It's for personal use only.  I hope you can find a use for it!

Just click on the preview, or here, to go to the download.

Two new kits and come back tomorrow for a freebie!!

Happy Saturday!

I still don't have a freebie, yet, but I will tomorrow!!  I just need to package it up and upload it to 4shared.

This week, I've had the please of working with 2 new fantastic kits; 'Water Fun' by Farynar's Wings and 'Mysterious Sea' by Lisete.
Both have the same theme, water, but are completely different styles.  I love the 'papery' feel of  'Water Fun'; it lends itself to the more whimsical layouts of summer-time fun.  I also love the more elegant feel of 'Mysterious Sea'; it lends itself to more romantic and mystical layouts.  Both would be excellent additions to your stash!

'Water Fun' by Farynar's Wings

And here's the layout that I did...

And my layout...

Thanks so much for looking!!  And, stayed tuned for the freebie tomorrow!

Some New Releases...

Hello everyone!  I don't have any freebies for you today, but I do have a few beautiful and cute new kits to share with you.

This first kit is so adorably cute that I had to use it for the monthly Sensational Siggies challenge over at Scrappity-Doo-Dah.  The kit is 'Dino's Rule' by Farynar's Wings and, as you can see by my layout, dinosaurs aren't just for boys!  Her color palette really lends itself to either boy or girl layouts.

Here's my new siggy...
 And here's my layout...

The second kit is 'Tropical Punch' by Lisete.  I used it for my July desktop; I'm so happy every time I look at it; the colors are so beautiful and happy!  It's a perfect kit to scrap all of those summer photos.

The last kit I have to share is 'Stacked Vol. 3' by Alegna.  It's a template pack full of gorgeous stacked paper templates.  For this layout, I used Template 1 and 'Ali Oop' by Mandy King.

Thanks so much for looking and I promise I'll have a little freebie for you next time!!
