Summer Splash is the theme for July’s Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

Standard

I just LOVE the colors of this month’s Pixel Scrapper blog train! So bright and cheerful. The theme was so fun to design for too! Click on the kit image below to download my contribution.

I always try to make my kits CU friendly, but this month I used some doodles from another artist and even though they were for CU, I just don’t think it is OK to use them in something I am giving away as CU. If anyone has any thoughts on this I would love to hear them. Enjoy the Splash!

June Pixel Scrapper Blog Train Time!

Standard

The theme for this month’s Pixel Scrapper Blog Train is England. It features a huge colorful palette that many designers used to create awesome digital scrapbooking kits. I really had grand plans of doing a British Bands themed kit that I was really looking forward to creating. However, life got a bit crazy so I had to settle on a much smaller version.

Everyday Beauty

Standard
I have driven past this tree for 28 years on my way to work.
It probably took 20 years to even notice it.
Now that I have noticed it, I look at it everyday and appreciate it’s beauty.
If everyone took a moment to notice and contemplate
one thing that they have passed by, there would be so much more love.

Mother Nature always makes sure we have something beautiful to see!

Marisa Lerin over at Pixelscrapper.com has asked the Pixel Scrapper community which kit is their favorite.

I would have to say my Love Defined kit that I designed a couple of years ago when I began the whole digital scrapping adventure is one of my favorites.

I have used so many elements from this kit for a lot of the greeting cards and products I design. My favorite is the butterfly. I used a photograph I had taken of a butterfly that is in a beautiful collection my aunt has had on her wall for years.

It makes me so happy that many people have chosen this card to send to a loved one in hospice care that needs a kind and caring word.

April Pixel Scrapper Blog Train is Here!

Standard

This month’s theme for the Pixel Scrapper Blog Train is Reflections. From what I see so far all of the designers

have such unique ways of interpreting the word Reflections. This is making for an amazingly diverse collection of coordinating kits!

I used Mirrors as my muse for designing my kit. I am brought back to my childhood thinking of the big round mirrors everyone had and the beveling that so many mirrors had on them. I hope you enjoy my kit and please follow the link below to get all the parts for this train! Happy April!

Animal Kingdom March Pixel Scrapper Blog Train Contribution

Standard

I am so thrilled with this month’s theme for Pixel Scrapper’s Blog Train! The theme is Animal Kingdom, and the color palette is immense! Most contributors chose different animals, and different colors from the palette to create their awesome designs. I chose to do word art with just 2 of the colors so they could coordinate with any palette. I stuck to pets people have and the words used to describe them and fun we have with them. Once I started writing it was hard to stop! I hope you find my kit useful and fun!
