‘Hope in the Rain’ Full Kit

{Hope in the Rain} Full Kit Freebie Digital Scrapbooking

Can you believe it? I actually made it to Round 4 of the GDS Design Contest! The FINAL round! And I made the cut! There are 8 designers left and we’re competing for a place on the GDS Design Team. What’s more, my Round 4 GDS Design Challenge kit is finished! Yay! This round we had to create a full kit of 10 papers, 20 elements and an alphabet! All in a week! We were given a photo from which we had to extract a colour scheme and were then free to create!

{Sorry! As this item will be the FIRST item in my brand new shop over at GDS, it is no longer a freebie. I hate to do this! If you’re interested in grabbing a freebie, check the other items on my blog or head over to my Facebook Fan Page for a freebie.

Here are a few more previews of the kit.

All About Me Mini Kit – ADD ON Cluster {Freebie}

All About Me Freebie Add On Digital Scrapbooking

I decided to do a small add on to my “All About Me” mini kit. It has 2 papers and 3 elements and I think it works well with the mini kit. I just love the “list” element and think it would be perfect for recording 10 words that best describe you!

Here is my first layout for the most wonderful Sanko Studio. I love her style and the {In the Stacks} kit was so easy to use. I decided to do a simple layout as the memory is so strong it doesn’t need much to bring it all back.

This is a photo of my dad laughing! We were on a boat going down the Ganges River in Varanasi, India. It was incredible! We drove into town early in the morning, just before sunrise, and got some amazing photos. We then took a boat ride down the river to the area that has the funeral pyres. You see it on National Geographic and in magazines, but when you go there and see it for yourself it is very different. It almost doesn’t live up to your expectations… and then you take a look at the photos you took and you are amazed.

I love India and try to visit every year. If you’ve never been, you must put it on your list of things to do!

Enjoy!

I’m on a CT! Woot! Introducing… Sanko Studio!

I think the title says it all! I applied to Sanko Studio for a spot on her CT team and….. <drumroll>……. was accepted! So excited!

If you haven’t checked out Sanko Studio before, you should as her designs are fantastic and so easy to use! The first kit I’ll be working with is called, “In the Stacks” and is perfect for anyone who loves books! I’m a doodle addict and this kit has loads of them – very unique. Here’s a preview. (can you tell I’m excited:)

In the Stacks Digital Scrapbooking Kit Sanko Studio

You can grab this kit from Sanko Studio’s store at Scrapable HERE. During the month of November 2012, you can download a free add on by visiting the Sanko Studio Facebook Page. Super fun!

I’ll post my layout using this kit soon. I’m not sure I’ll be doing a book themed page, but I love the colours and so will try to do something with the colours. It looks fantastic and I can’t wait to get started!

Hope you enjoy checking out the fantastic products Sanko Studio has!

GDS Designer Contest 2012 – Round 2

 

GSD Designer Contest - Round 2

I can’t believe we’re onto Round 2 of the 2012 GDS Designer Contest already! Last week saw me creating a mini-kit and an alphabet using a lovely muted colour palette and a theme of my own choice. If you missed the result, check out my post HERE to grab the mini-kit and alphabet.

 

ROUND 2

For Round 2 we have to create a mini-kit using a colour palette of 6 colours taken from the photo below. The theme is something on our own “Bucket List”. I had never even heard of the term ‘Bucket List’ before this competition, so it took me a while to figure it out! Anyway, our palette photo is below. Lot’s of colour choice!

GDS Designer Contest Color Palette

This time round we have to create 15 elements and 6 papers and deadline will be the same – Thursday lunchtime my time. Check back by then for a link to the kit.

Have a great day everyone!
