working on something new

First off, all I can say is WOW...I had so many thoughts that my Mighty Dinos kit would be a huge flop, but so far it has been the most downloaded out of all three of my kits! Maybe I shouldn't be so hard on myself eh? And thank you, thank you, thank you, for all of those wonderful comments both on here and 4shared. I read them ALL! Makes me smile and warms my heart, so thank you all SO much!!

I wanted to let you all know I am working on my first mini kit. It should be up within the week, hopefully before our internet gets turned off before the big move! I don't want to give too much away yet, but it has pretty pastel colors and its kind of an outdoorsy theme! I really like the way the papers are turning out and I have been working with some ideas about my elements. I am making some 100% freehand again and its a bit time consuming, but I like that they are a bit different that whats in a lot of the freebie kits.

When I say mini, I just mean the kit isn't as big, but it is still in the same 12x12, 300dpi format. I don't think I will be making tagger kits since you can always make bigger smaller.

Well its midnight here and I hear my bed calling me so I think I will call it a night. Thank you again for visiting my blog, you really have no idea how happy it makes me! I just wanted to write a quick note to let you all know I am working on something and I hope to get out before we move. So check back! Goodnight blog world.

Mighty Dinos-Part 2

The elements are here! Finally I know but thanks for being patient with me. As I said in my last post, there arent many elements to this kit, and for that I apologize, with me being sick then having tons to do with the move, I am sure you all understand. But I did make some made from scratch graphics that I hope you enjoy!

Oh and 1 more always, please leave a comment if you download! All my kits are for personal use only, and are 12x12 sized. I would love to see what you make with the kits as well and I will feature them here on my blog (once I get that up and running, I already have some awesome pages from one of you!) Again, its very appreciated, comments, feedback, as I am VERY new at this. So thanks everyone and I hope you return for my mini kits I have in store in between the bigger Gymboree* kits.

OH, and a reminder, I will be offline from the 31st of August until mid September sometime (hopefully sooner) as we are making the move from Hawaii to Virginia. Not sure when I will be hooked back up, but I will try to keep the updates coming as much as possible!

So...see how I ramble? :) Here is the preview (not all shown and drop shadows for preview only). Enjoy!

Thanks for the patience!

Hello everyone!

My apologizes on the late arrival of the elements for the Mighty Dinos kit. There aren't a ton of elements for this one, but a lot of personal made items that I created from scratch and that was pretty time consuming!

A little news, we are moving from Hawaii to Virgina in less than 2 weeks! So its been pretty hectic here, cleaning, scheduling things, packing, getting our pup ready to fly and of course still chase after a highly energized toddler all day! So I appreciate your patience with me and getting this kit out! It will most likely be my last one before we depart. On the 31st I wont have access to the internet until....well..thats undetermined actually. We dont fly out until the 7th of September and we have no idea when we will be hooked up and ready to go after that. BUT when I return expect some more kits! I have a few ideas I have been working on and I am sure you'll love it!

I have been working on making some personalized kits from friends of mine that I have and they are turning out to be so cute! They will all be mini kits, so like...5-10 papers, 20 elements or so, still in 12x12 format though.

Well I am unable to get the preview ready for the elements on Mighty Dinos right now as my internet time is limited, BUT I will have them out ready for download later tonight! (my tonight). So come back and look for them! I sure hope you like, its not a lot due to my current circumstances, but I hope what I have is usable! Here is a preview on something I made thats in the kit.

Mighty Dinos Part 1

Hello my fellow digi scrappers! I am still not feeling well, but I got down and finished up the papers to my first boy kit, the Gymboree* inspired Mighty Dinos. I am still behind though so expect the elements to be a little later. I am really out of my element with boy kits so it sure was a challenge! I hope you find this useful and can use it for your layouts! Here is a preview of the papers. There are only 17 to this one and its still undetermined how many elements. So check back for the elements and word art! Happy scrapping!

Click on preview for the download.
And as always, I'd love to see layouts or anything you make with any of my kits!
If you download, please leave some love, I read all my comments and appreciate them dearly!

I'm sick

Hello all....I have been pretty sick the last couple days and I really havent worked on the kit. It may not be up this weekend, but I will try to have something for you! Thanks for the patience!

Mighty Dinos it is!

So it looks like Mighty Dinos won! So I will begin to put the kit together this week. I will be out of my element with the boy theme, so any help on what you'd like to see would help me out! I can't wait for this challenge!

a little graphic I made

Using the Happy Rainbow kit. So see, its not just for scrapping! These are popular on the parenting forum I am on, and this one is of my daughter at 18 months. My how they grow fast.

Happy Rainbow Part 3!

Elements are here!!!

There ended up being 66 elements and a bonus word art for you in this one. I sure hope you like it! Thank you all for the comments, it makes me so happy you are enjoying them! I have comments set to approve so that I ensure I read every one of them! I appreciate it more than you'll know. So thank you very kindly.

So as always, I would love to see layouts you make and with your permission, I will put up a slide show on my blog showing them off!

So without further rambling, here are the elements to the Happy Rainbow kit. I hope I made it usable, this is only my second kit so I have MUCH to learn. Feedback is appreciated so I can continue to grow and get better. Please just click on the preview to take you to the download link.

Not all elements are shown, please leave some love if you download! Thanks again!

Boy kit poll!!

I have noticed girl kits dominate the scrap world, and since I have a girl and thats what I look for, they are in abundance to me. When I went to scrap a page for a friend of mine who has a boy, I found myself not looking though a sea of boy kits like when I was looking for girl. So I want to make sure I offer up both! So the next *Gymboree inspired kit I am going to make is going to be for the boys!

So I made a poll on the left hand side, PLEASE vote there and let me know which one you'd like to see next. The choices are...

Mighty Dino with this color scheme

King of the Jungle with this scheme

or Tropical Turtle

Happy Rainbow part 2.5

I decided to make a paper add on for Happy Rainbow as I wasn't 100% on how the papers turned out. I wanted to make a few more, whole page friendly papers, so I hope you can use these in addition.

I never knew how addicting making kits is! There are 61 elements to this kit. I guess I wasn't satisfied how some of them were turning out so I kept making more and more and more. But I hope you like them...I am hoping it fits a wide range of personal styles so that I reach out to more people. I like to try and make everyone happy!

I tried out this new thing (its like the word art) where it looks like a fabric with frays and haphazard stitching, I made a few elements like that. I really like the way it looks so I hope you do as well. Those things are time consuming let me tell you, but I just think they are so cute. I know I will enjoy using them in my graphics/layouts.

Well the elements will come later today, so for now, please enjoy the paper add-on! Click the preview to download.

Happy Rainbow part 2

Hello everyone!!

I am having some issues with the elements to the Happy Rainbow kit, so since I promised them today, and they wont be up today, I will put up the word art I made for it! Its not much, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!! Click the preview for the download!

Happy Rainbow part 1

Sorry everyone when I say things like..."Friday ____ will be up". To me, it is still Friday...well for another 50 minutes at least, and I know the time zones can really throw this off. Especially since I dont usually get on until after little one goes to sleep for the night. So thanks for being patient!

So as promised, here are the papers for the *Gymboree inspired kit, Happy Rainbow! There are 22 papers in this kit, not all shown below. I am hoping that I am making them usable and not too out there, so any feedback is appreciated so I can improve over time!

So go ahead and click the preview to download. And as always, leave some love! Hope you enjoy!

Working hard

Hello blog land. I wanted to let you all know that I am really working hard on this kit to have it up and ready to begin downloads on Friday!! I am making more personalized stuff in this one, and as some of you may know, that takes some time! But I am excited about how it is turning out and I sure hope you all enjoy it.

Today has been a calm day for the most part. I suppose as calm as it can be with a toddler who has hit the terrible two stage early, but she brings such joy to my life. So I thought I would put up a pic of my beautiful little girl. Something cute to look at in between downloading cute kits!

So Felicia "hit" us today. It was barely a thing by time it came to the islands. We had a little bit of rain, seems no more than our usual rain spells we get here. I even saw beautiful blue skies here today. So thankfully she died down and dissipated because I couldn't image little ol us being hit with a category 4 hurricane which she peaked at earlier last week. *shudders*

Ok...enough to finish up the kit!

Happy Rainbow sneak peak

I have been having a lot of fun designing my 2nd ever digital scrap kit inspired from the Gymboree* line Happy Rainbow. This kit will be released on Friday (maybe even sooner, who knows), and I sure hope you like it! But I wanted to show you a little sneak peak of the kit. Here is one of the elements that I made today, isn't it cute??

Well...thanks for visiting my blog, I am just starting out so any encouragement sure is appreciated, and I hope you stop back by often!

New kit ideas....

Hello everyone! I sure hope that you have enjoyed my Ice Cream Social kit. I sure think it is cute and I cant wait to make more pages using it. Remember, if you would like to show off your page made with this kit, just send it to me (my email is in the TOU file) and I will put it up on my blog!

As promised, the word art will be up later today!

So now it is time to start working on my next kit, and I have narrowed it down to two *Gymboree lines...
Happy Rainbow

and Watermelon Picnic

So please let me know which *Gymboree inspired kit you'd like to see as the next freebie!

Ice Cream Social part 2

Hello! As promised, here are the elements for my 1st kit, Ice Cream Social, inspired by the Gymboree clothing line. There are 51 elements, they do not have drop shadows as shown in the preview, I added them for show. Not all elements are shown. I sure hope you enjoy! Again, I would love to see any projects you make from my kit, send me scrap pages and I will add them to my blog. Check back often for more kits.

To come...Ice Cream Social word art!

Go here to download the elements.

A sample page that I did using this kit.

Ice Cream Social part 1

WOAH it has been a day! I was so excited to work on my first real kit that I actually spent the whole day on it, I just kept adding things. This is a pretty big kit, it has 51 element, 16 papers and I even threw in some word art!

Again, (I wrote it in a different post), but this kit is inspired by the Ice Cream Social Gymboree clothing line that came out February 2008. I loved that idea so much, my next several kits will be designed around their clothing line. I sure hope you enjoy this kit as much as I am going to. I will post scrap pages once I get a chance...I am seriously exhausted now as its almost 3am my time and just finished this up.

Please remember these are for PERSONAL use only. :) Please link others to my blog and not the 4shared link. And of course I would love to see what you come up with! And I love reading comments.

All my kits are 300 res, fit for the 12x12 scrappers.

So you only get the papers tonight, you'll have to come back tomorrow (well later today I suppose as its early a.m. here-Hawaii time) to get the elements. Here is a preview of the papers!

Go here to download the Papers!
Leave some love if you download! :)

Super excited!

Ok....I came up with an awesome kit for the next freebie. I absolutely LOVE Gymboree lines...they are always so cute and the colors are always right on. SO, I decided to makes some kits that go along with my fav clothing lines!!! The first kit is called Ice Cream Social and I will have the papers up later tonight (Hawaii time).

But here is a what my kit is inspired by!and my daughter wearing a couple outfits from this line. Anyway, I really hope you all will like this kit as I do and be able to use it. It will have papers and elements. Maybe even some Alpha. Please come back soon to get the link.

My next kit

I would love some input on what you would like to see. Color schemes, elements, themes so forth! I am working on a couple right now, but true to my Gemini mind...I am shifting from kit to kit to need some ideas to stay grounded! Thanks a bunch!

My First Freebie!

I completed my 1st freebie kit. Well...not sure if it is fair to call it a kit as its just elements, but I still hope you can use it just the same!

This is called Bedazzled. Its little doodle type elements with a jeweled look to them. I hope you can find ways to accent your pages or whatever with these. I would sure love to see what you did with them as well!

Please note these are Personal Use only.
Please go here to download your freebie!

My First Post!

HELLO blog land!

I am really excited to finally have a digital scapbook site up of my own! I sure hope you enjoy and come back often. This is a work in progress at the moment though so please be patient!

A little about me...I am a 28 year old, stay at home mom and amateur photographer. I will eventually have a link on here to go to my photography blog as well.

I was in the United States active Army for 8 years as a JAG Corps paralegal, and I really loved my job. When I learned that I was expecting, my husband and I decided that it was the best choice for me to be honorably discharged to stay home and raise our daughter. My Husband is also in the military and so I still get to live the life I love, just I get to be with my daughter all day and get more free time to do what I love. Which is digital graphics/scrapbooking and Photography.

I also make invitations, announcements and virtually anything actually. I love a challenge and I am always looking for ways to improve and take it to the next level.

I have been fascinated by the digital scrapbook scene now for a while and I just now decided to dabble in making my own kits, hoping to improve and get much better. I am hoping though, even though my designs aren't elaborate, that people will be able to use them just the same.

I am just finishing up my first freebie kit and I am hoping to have it up tonight! Thanks for stopping by!
