Design Factor Race Kits to share with everyone for free

At long last I am going to share all the kits I created for the Design Factor Race I took part in.
I will list them from the first week to the last one.  If you click on the preview of the kit it will lead you to the download.

I really enjoyed designing these kits but have no plans to design commercially. So if you like what I have created please leave a comment and keep an eye on this blog as I hope to eventually create more little kits for giving away.

If you asked me which of these kits was my favourite - that would be hard to answer. I enjoyed the luscious lips as I do like red but I would not say it is my favourite.  Possibly my Blue Skies would be my pick as there is just something about the soft colours of the kit that I enjoyed.

Design Factor Race at Digi Scrap Connect - # 6

This is the last week of the Designing race I have been taking part in which is hosted over at DigiScrap Connect.
We had to make a kit with a Food theme so I chose to use the nuts I had already photographed and extracted for one of my very first mini kits I ever designed.
Here is my kit for this week:
You can download it from over at Digi Scrap Connect HERE

Otherwise keep checking back at my blog as in 2 weeks time I will have all the kits I made for this Race with their links for you to download from my blog.

Design Factor Race at Digi Scrap Connect - # 5

We only have one more week of the race to go. I have made it to the fifth one which surprised me as I did not think I would even get through the first week. I am enjoying all the learning about designing that I am experiencing. So after this race keep an eye out for more free kits as I will not be stopping and will continue designing kits to give away.  I have started making a list of kits I would like to make. Some will be just wordart kits as I do enjoy creating wordart.
Anyway here is this week's kit which you can go HERE  to download it. This challenge was to find out how good we are at recolouring. We had to use Commercial Use products and recolour them.

Design Factor Race

Now I will share weeks 2, 3 and 4 of the Design Factor Race. These are the previews of the kits I have created for these designing challenges. If you click on them they will take you to Digi Scrap Connect where you can download them from.
I am enjoying being pushed in my designing. I am leaning a lot and it is fun.  I have become even more hooked to doing more designing. At this point in time I have no desire to do it commercially. I just enjoy being able to give the kits away for free.
Here are the ones to date:
Week 2
Week 3
Week 4

Designing Race at Digital Scrap Connect - week 1 - Summer Heat Mini Kit

I signed up to take part in a Designing Race and did not think I would get the Week 1 Assignment completed as we had to create our own papers and elements without just recolouring commercial use items.
I enjoyed the challenge and am pleased with how my mini kit turned out.  I use a brush for the grass - it is on one paper and also a separate PNG file.  The knotted string I extracted from a scanned piece of string.
So if you would like my little mini kit for FREE -  please click HERE

We're having a blast celebrating DRS' 2nd! birthday and hope you are having as much fun as we are. There are several stops along the way. You should have gotten here from   Emms   . But now that you're here, here is my portion of this Two-rific blog train.

Here are two layouts I created which I used for making the Quick Pages:
For this next one I used a great template kit "Anything Goes Vol 3"  by Scrap-a-Holic Designs which will soon be released in the store at Digi-ridoo Scraps. If you want to see some other great templates by this designer, please check out her store HERE

Now to continue on the Blog Train and see what other lovely Clusters, frames and Quick Pages others have made please go to the following blog  by   KATIE
As we are all from different parts of the world, if you find a blog that does not have something for this train, it may mean they have not started their part yet, so please pop back to them later in the day.

This week I received the exciting news that I was accepted on the Creative Team at Digi-ridoo Scraps. For this month I have been a guest on the team which I have been enjoying. The team for this store are a great team to work with so I was so pleased to have my application accepted.  My digital scrapbooking style may not be as arty as the other new members of the team but I hope that what I create will inspire those that just like to scrap for the memory of the photos and the story those photos tell which is my main reason for doing scrapbooking. 
Here is where on the forum the announcement was made:

Another Door Opens

This is a layout I have made for my CT work with Scrap-a-holic Designs and it the template for the papers from a set of templates called Paper Stacker Starters and was so easy to use and so much fun.  Great way to get your page started without having to think of where to place the different layers.
Now here is link to Scrap-a-Holics blog where you can find a  Free  Paper Stacker Starter:
and here is the a card front I made using this freebie:

Yet More CT work For Digi-ridoo Scraps

I am enjoying my Guest Spot at Digi-ridoo Scraps this month and decided to make another card from a digi kit.
This is for my son-in-law ( did you already know that?) who is a surfer.  The lovely kit I used is called Summer Daze by Studio 4 Designs and you can find it in the Digi-ridoo Scraps store  HERE

I do have a layout in mind to make using this kit along with another template by Scrap-a-Holics... so hopefully early next week that will be shared here on my blog.

More CT work for Digi-ridoo Scraps

This is a Mini Album I made for my mother for Mother's Day using a kit called SpringVille by LouCee Creations and you can find this lovely kit HERE

Now a page using the same Kit but also a Template By Scrap-a-Holic Designs which is due in the store on the 17th of this month.

CT Work for Digi-ridoo Scraps

This was a fun card to make. I used a HUGE Collab kit called ROBOTICA which is avialable at Digi-ridoo Scraps this month ( May 2011) for free with any purchase over $5.00 - go check it out HERE

This page was also made using the Robotic kit and the photos are of my step-grandson, Brice. The template used for the page is by Scrap-a-Holic Designs and was free for doing this page as it is for a challenge on the forum at Digi-ridoo Scraps - you can check out the forum challenge  HERE

Updating my Blog

Wow... I did not realise that I have not added anything here since March.
Lots have been happening so I thought it time I updated this blog.
Towards the end of last month I decided to become more involved at Digi-ridoo Scraps and this lead me to apply for two different digi jobs. The first one I was accepted for was for to be part of the Forum Team for a designer called "Truman Studio"  so you will eventually see some pages using Aly's kits.
The second job I applied for was to be part of a CT for Scrap-a-holic Designs which is a designer who mostly designs templates so watch out for pages using Anna's templates.

On top of these two things I also won a guest spot on the CT for Digi-ridoo Scraps which has been a lot of fun. These will be the first pages I will share after this posting.  The guest spot is only for May. I don't think I would have the time to be a permanent CT for the store as well as the other two jobs I have.

Under the Sea - digital kit by Chocolate Geranium Digital Designs

This week I had the thrill of being invited to work with a Digital Designers newest kit - Under the Sea by Chocolate Digital Designs.

It is such a fun kit and great for using with photos of children swimming or at the beach.

These are the two layout I put together using the kit.
The kit is for sale at Digi_ridoo Scraps

Free Mini Kit - Friends

I planned to take part in a Charity Kit called "Friendship" which will be a fund raiser for the Queensland Flood Appeal here in Australia, but I had finished all my designing and checked back to see where I had to send the link to the kit and discovered I was too late as they already had enough designers taking part.
So I thought I would give my little mini kit away and have renamed it "Friends". Once I find out where you can purchase the Charity Kit I will share that here. So if you want more items that will match this kit please check back at a later date.

You can download my little mini kit from HERE
