Ok, so I'm just crazy enough to enter again this year! I may have already posted about this, but it's exciting! The contest starts on September 1st, and goes all month long. After some thought on the 2 years past that I've entered, I've realized that this year will be the first one that will not be during Mercury Retrograde period. I do hope this is in my favor this year. I'm not in it for the prizes, but for the experience, and even the possible chance at being on the design team at the Studio. I've looked back at kits I've created and I've seen just how far I've come. It's really amazing to me, and I've STILL got so much to learn!
Tricks of the trade? Having great resources for kit materials. Yes, creating your own is and always will be most awesome, but to have that action/ribbon/style already for you to use? priceless. definitely worth the small amount you will pay for them! If you can find great quality CU Freebies even better. These are the sites i HIGHLY recommend if you're looking for designer resources: Http://www.actionfx.com Memberships are quite inexpensive and the amount of information is just INCREDIBLE! http://www.atomiccupcake.com again, the quality and number of actions/styles and yes, even kits if you're a scrapper is fantastic! http://www.obsidiandawn.com Love, Love, LOVE her brushes! She gives them away for free!! Do her some lip service, and donate too if you have the means!
IF you're a PSP user, an invaluable resource is http://www.outlawbydesign.com her tubes are just fantastic!
and now, for next kit preview I've got in the stores ^_^
So is the Digital Scrapbooking Studio's annual birthday bash! I'm once again giving the contest a go. I'm not in it for the tablet prizes or other prizes really.. a chance to be on the Studio team would be fantastic though! I think this will be the 3rd time I've entered the contest. I'm not sure if it'll be open to public voting, if it is, I'll be asking once again for your help! i think I've come a LONG way from my first attempt at this contest.
I know it's been nearly a month since i've posted..my apologies! i've got several kits to post here.. you will either find them as a stand alone in one store, or part of a monthly mega for extra awesomeness in another! So you'll have to go to each store to support the Monthly mega or if you just want the smaller piece ;)
This kit is part of the August Scrap it Sassy mega-
you'll also find it for sale separately at Ivy Scraps
This mini is part of the September Ivy Scraps mega,
It's also available at Scrap it Sassy as a stand alone.
There will be more kits to come this month as I play catch up. How many, i'm not too sure, but be on the look out! ^_^
Complete! only took me 2 days.. well if i'm technical ..about 6-8 hrs total, but it was spread out over 2 days.
I've saved the templates so that I can change around and use for other things. I don't like how the dimensions I i found don't exactly work, and the html/css justification had to be changed. so if anyone out there knows the proper dimensions please..i'd love to know them. thanks!
Feedback is always welcome! too hard to read? too cluttered? let me know! thanks! ^_^
Took me a couple days to get out this kit. The theme and color palate really stumped me. I think my favorite part of this is the cluster frame. I'm also really stoked at the argyle / diamond patterned papers. Thanks Sherah for showing me how it's done!
Look for this kit in store very soon! It's my portion of the Monthly Mega at Ivy Scraps!
