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!
