FREEBIE - Enjoy, Mini Digi Scrapbook Kit

I didn't think I'd get this finished in time as I've been ill with a virus (blah) and my desire to design (or, for that matter, to do anything else) has been pretty much nil; however, I managed after all... as I mentioned in my previous post, I'm back with another mini kit, designed for Kim Broedelet's June, 2013, Color Challenge at the ScrapMatters forum (be sure to go check out the forum for other contributions before the links expire; all together they'll make a great full-sized kit).

Here's my mini kit; it's called 'Enjoy'.

Download 'Enjoy' from either of the following sites (NOTE, the .ZIP file is about 37 MB):

If you have time to leave a comment, I'd love to know what you think.

Happy Scrapping!

Personal Scrapping, Photo Layouts and Templates

Personal Scrapping

I've been wanting to get back to doing some more of my own, photo scrapping and never seem to get to it, finding myself doing other, design sort-of-things instead.  So, to help me get back on track for my personal scrapping, I decided I'd apply for a position on a CT (Creative Team).

The tricky part - finding someone who both:
  • (A) designs quality products and
  • (B) is accepting new CT members
That's when I noticed that Inspired by Dominic Designs was looking to add scrappers to her team and, what do you know, Tiffany accepted my application to join (insert smiles here)!

So, in between my designing and offering freebies here, I'll also be displaying the layouts I make, both with the kits of Inspired by Dominic and with others.

Photo Layouts

Here are the 1st two photo layouts I've created in conjunction with being on the CT of Inspired by Dominic Designs.  I used the 'Summer Play Bundle' to create these.

Summer Fun (my son having fun).

Summer of '42 (My mother on the lake shore).


I don't use templates to create my layouts, they are my own designs (with relation to the arrangement of elements, papers and photos) but I know there are a lot of people who like and use templates for their layout creations.  So, if you use templates and would like to have one to mimic one of my layout arrangements, send me an email (my contact information can be found by viewing my 'complete profile') and I'll do my best at creating one for you.

Coming up

Well, that's it for today but I'm hoping to design a mini kit before the end of this month to contribute to KimB's June color challenge at the Scrap Matters forums this month.  After that, I'll be working on a contribution to the DigiScrap Forum Blog Train coming up in August.  It's going to be a boy themed one. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by.

Digital Scrapbook Kit FREEBIE by request - Buzzy Little Bee (2nd Edition)

Back in May, I received some nice comments about my free kit, Bejeweled, and the coordinating Bejeweled Glittery Alpha Sets (thank you to everyone who took the time to comment).  One comment (by 'amohja') also mentioned the desire for me to bring back my 'Buzzy Little Bee' kit, so I thought I'd do just that.  Well, sort of... it's back with more. :)

If you followed my previous blog, then you may remember that my 'Buzzy Little Bee' kit was originally created for a challenge/contest back in October of 2012 hosted by Scrapping Fairytales.  You can view the first version of Buzzy Little Bee HERE, in the Scrapping Fairytales archived galleries.

Since I found the original color palette (given by the contest host) to be a bit dark and limiting, I decided to brighten things up a bit by adding a few more colors to the palette and creating additional (and more colorful) papers (6) and elements (4).

I hope that there will be others besides 'amohja' who will find this kit useful.

! ! ! - NOTE - ! ! !
The 'BUZZY LITTLE BEE' 2nd Edition, digital scrapbook kit is a Rose Thorn original. :)
The paper patterns and all elements were, hand-drawn, assembled from basic shapes or scanned and extracted by me, Rose Thorn.  With the exception of the stitching* on the straight ribbon, no CU (commercial use) products were used in this kit's creation.
*The ribbon stitching was created with the aid of Photoshop brushes and styles by '...Inspirations'.

Thanks for stopping by today!
