Kit Release - Melancholy

This is in the store tomorrow for 35% off making it only $3.25! What a deal:)

A brand new kit that came from a contest. This is the kit that I made for the second round of the designer challenge/contest over at Gingerscraps. The challenge was to produce a kit using one color and only changing the hue...I found it very difficult as the colors all seemed too similar but then I realized that is exactly what we were asked to do and I guess that as a designer it was to show the ability to use limited resources including color.

Not to mention the fact that my favorite color is purple:) I wanted to include elements that concentrated on being different or offbeat, perhaps in color or dimension, things that might not make sense as a stand alone item but as a whole it came together nicely. I have gone through several periods of time where I was quite melancholy and wanted to show those feelings in softer terms, perhaps objects rather than words so that I could "feel" it rather than read it.

So here are a few layouts from my fabulous CT - I have been lucky enough to have some great gals on the team:)


Here are several freebies for you - these would make a lovely spread using the kit, giving some creative inspiration or just allowing you to make a few quick pages for those last minute internet gifts! Enjoy!

Bella's Trinkets Freebie kit

So this was my week 3 challenge kit - theme was favorite movie, song or book. Since I haven't read a book in a LONG time that was out. I have tons of favorite songs but nothing came to me. And my favorite movie is not Twilight but I was listening to the soundtrack as I was looking for inspiration and it came to me.

The challenge was hard, almost no CU allowed on at least 15 elements and no patterned overlays. So I got my brain into work mode and managed to extract some really cool elements and did all the papers on my own. I think they came out really cool!

So if you want it you can download it from Gingerscraps just click the preview above.

Once the contest is over I'll have links here on the blog:)

Harvest Blessings Release & Freebies!

This weeks kit was done for a designer challenge/contest over at Gingerscraps. Initially the kit only contained a handful of papers and elements but I loved the colors and vibe of the kit that I had to revamp and add a few more pieces. I think it's perfect for all of the fall holidays as well as any other time of the year. The oranges are bright and vibrant against the subtle and muted greens.
It's in the store tomorrow for 35% for release week only so grab it while you can.

Here is just a small sampling of what my CT did with the kit, imagine the possibilities!

And on to the freebies!! A sampling of great add on items to the kit!

Holly Jolly Kit Release & Freebies!!

I am so excited to announce the release of Holly Jolly, my very first collab with one of my favorite designers, Val of geniaBeana Scraps! I love the soft colors and the addition of the blue just adds that extra little touch. The kit came together so well and is perfect for any of your holiday photos:) In the store tomorrow and on sale so make sure you grab it!

Word art by me - I had so much fun making these and I hope that you can use them along with the kit!

Here are some fabulous freebies by my CT - all images are linked:)

Here are some pages for inspiration - sometimes the lo's I see really sway me to buy a kit as you get to see all of the goodies in action!

Happy Hanukkah Release & Freebies!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!! By the time this is posted I'm sure we will all have started our meals and perhaps even be ready for a nap! But while the viewing is good I wanted to let you all know about the brand new release of Happy Hanukkah tomorrow!

Here are some great freebies from my CT - images are linked:)

I have been seeing lots of Christmas kits but I found that the digi-community was lacking in some of the other holidays that others celebrate. I used lots of blues and silver in this kit but the great part is that it can be used for way more than just Hanukkah celebrations - as you can see from my CT there are plenty of lo's that are just winter or snow related.

New Release and freebies from Ode to A Starry Night

Hello all! Belinda here with the latest release - Ode to A Starry Night. I have to admit that I am not much into art although there are certain paintings that I just adore and Starry Night happens to be one of them. The colors and the depth of the painting itself are just awesome. The dark colors along with the lighter yellows and golds make it perfect for any kind of a layout.
It is on sale for $3.25 this week so make sure to head over and pick it up!

Kit Release - Forever Heather and Wordart Freebie!

It is with a heavy heart that I release Forever Heather - a kit made as a tribute to a dear friend that passed away unexpectedly two weeks ago. She was the mother of my niece, a friend, a sister and a member of my family. She was a fantastic girl, full of life, smiles and mischief (lots of it!) and that is exactly how I will remember her.

I wanted the kit to reflect the loss but also the life that she did lead, the soft colors of her femininity, the florals to bring out her beauty and the whole kit to be a part of her now that she is gone. I felt strange about releasing it but after thinking about it I know that I am not the only one who has gone through a loss and felt the despair after that person is gone - this is meant to be a kit to use to remember those that we have lost and this says it best -

Do not cry because it is over, smile because it happened ~ Dr. Seuss

I worked on the wordart and it was a therapuetic process for me. I wanted to include things that weren't rememberance related but still meaningful to most. I hope that you enjoy them!

The kit is on sale this week for 35% off so make sure you head over to the store before you miss out!
