My Designs at Pixel Scrappers

I've no idea if I have any digital scrapbooking fans out there, or, if I do, whether or not they still visit this blog of mine, since I've neglected it for so long. So this post is for purposes of informing all who care, that I have a new digital scrapbooking "home", where I spend a great deal of time and have started uploading some of my designs (free for registered members - earn download credits daily by becoming an active member). That place is Pixel Scrappers . I am currently a level 1 designer for their "commons" section ( learn more here). I really connected with this site after reading their manifesto (explaining their views on the sharing of art and creativity). You can read their manifesto here.

I hope to see some new "faces" at Pixel Scrapper...please consider stopping by there to look things over and maybe become a member. You'll find lots of friendly assistance and a number of informative tutorials in the forums there; as well as various challenges (both, page challenges for the scrappers, and, designer challenges, should you care to learn and try creating some of your own designs) - and monthly blog trains too.

Most every month at Digitalscrapbookingstudio.com (aka theStudio) the designer known as ADB Designs hosts a color challenge for it's forum members and I just love the sweet, delicate color palette chosen for this month so I decided to create and contribute a freebie mini kit to coordinate with it.

Pixel Scrapper's June 2016 Blog Train - Yesteryear -my contribution (FREEBIE)

OK, I'm a day late but here it is anyway...
Pixelscrapper.com has a new Blog Train Digital Scrapbooking collection for June 2016, using the color palette shown above.

I really loathe creating Previews,so, given that I'm late in posting this, I decided to forgo a traditional preview and post 'contact sheets' instead.  Here's preview 1 of 2 for my papers:

Wearing the Designer's Hat Again Just For Fun

I guess I'm not very good at sticking to what I say.... I missed designing so, in a creative mood, I decided to create a mini kit to go with the March, 2016 Color Challenge at theStudio.  Here's what I made:

Hanging Up My Designer's Hat

Although, I hope, at some time in the future, to post links to more of my previously unreleased designs, I have finally made the decision to permanently stop all designing of digital scrapbook products;  I just cannot do what I once could, nor what I want, since my CVA (Cerebrovascular accident) and I wish to spend the little energy I have to continue with both the volunteer work that I do for my local chapter of TCF (The Compassionate Friends) as well as complete the research of my family genealogy project.

Thanks to all who've supported me here through the years.

Here's a parting gift(?), useable for PU/S4O/S4H (Personal Use/Scrap for Others/scrap for Hire) only (please read my Terms of use page before downloading).
