The Blog Train Has Arrived!

Welcome to the Scrap Scrap Scrap Blog Train! All the participating designers have recently been certified as Certified Digital Designers. We are celebrating our new status by giving away mini-kits on a subject we all love – scrapbooking! Here’s what you need to know:
  • All mini-kits will be available for download through October 18, 2010.
  • You can also enter to win a full kit from each designer on their blog. Each blog has different rules on how to enter so make sure you follow the directions!
  • We will randomly select one designer’s blog and one random comment on that blog. If that person has commented on all 10 blogs he/she will win all 10 kits!
  • Be sure to include your e-mail in each comment so we know how to contact you when you win!


So, now you’re up to speed on all the nitty gritty, let’s have some fun =)
I LOVED Jessica’s class and couldn’t recommend it more. Before the class I dabbled in design, but I couldn’t see my way through to actually completing a kit. Now, I don’t know why I ever had any problems finishing a kit – I have so many ideas I have to restrain myself =) So, here is my very first mini-kit, “Scrap n Stuff” using one of my all-time favourite colours schemes!
In this kit are 5 papers and 7 unique elements – NO CU PRODUCTS USED! I LOVE doodles and so, as you can see, most of my elements have a doodley style to them – hope you like them!
You can download it here for FREE through October 18, 2010. After that, who knows! I may keep it free, but I may have other plans for it =)

You can also enter to win the full size kit version of Scrap n Stuff!


I thought it might be fun to give you a sneak peek now, and release the actual preview closer to the end of the blog train! So much fun! So…. here’s the sneak peek preview =) The full kit will have 15 papers and 20 elements 20 papers and 30 unique elements in it (I couldn’t stop!) and, like the mini-kit, will be made using no CU items to ensure everything is super duper unique. This is a sneak peek of just a little bit of the kit! I don’t want to give too much away just yet!

Scrap n Stuff Full Kit Preview

As I am a new designer, I don’t have a creative team. So, would you like to get the full kit for free? All you have to do is create a layout using this mini kit, post it in a public gallery such as DST or DSA linking my blog in your credits, email me (dodiesa [at] gmail {dot} com) the link to your layout in the gallery and you will get the FULL KIT for FREE! It would be lovely to see some layouts using my kit =) Anything to inspire me to keep designing! The deadline for this will be October 30th, 2010. I’m excited to see what you all create!

  42. Sharon says:

    This is just the cutest little kit. I’m brand new to digi.
    brand. new.
    I’m determined to learn this and make an album for my niece.
    I would like to see some resizable hand drawn dotted frames in rectangles, circles and squares. I’m thinking of slightly irregular shapes that would work so well with your doodle themes.

    I’m picturing this little album having one dotted/doodled framed picture on each 8×8 page with one doodled girlie element dropped into the corner of the frame. Doesn’t it sound cute!

    I love your mini kit, Thanks!
