Autumn Splendor Page Kit

It's been a while since I have given a freebie and I haven't had a whole lot of time to make anything new, so I am giving a kit that I made last year for the SNL challenge that I participate in every month. If you are interested in joining us and learning more about designing your own kits, click on the SNL blinkie in my sidebar.

Here's the kit:

Cornucopia of Colors Blog Train

I really intended to be a better blogger and release another freebie during August, but it has been a very busy month for me. I am happy to have had enough time to make a kit to participate in the ADS Designers September blog train.

And today is the release day! The members of the ADS Designers yahoogroup have been working hard to bring you this fabulous freebie. One color palette + one theme + 56 designers = one HUGE kit. And this is my contribution. I hope you all enjoy my kit and if you make a layout with it, please leave me a link to your gallery and I will showcase your layout on my blog.

Zoo Spirit Collaborative Kit Freebie

Today is the big day! It is the official release day of the Zoo Spirit Collaborative Kit. The members of the ADS Designers yahoogroup have been working hard to bring you this fabulous freebie. One color palette + one theme + 52 designers = one HUGE kit.

Here is my contribution to the kit. My muse took a wrong turn on the way to the zoo and ended up at the botanical garden. When she saw all the pretty flowers, no amount of begging and pleading could get her to the zoo. So my kit ended up being an elegant style that will be perfect for all of your photos of the zoo's beautiful landscaping.

I hope you all enjoy my kit and if you make a layout with it, please leave me a link to your gallery and I will showcase your layout on my blog.

SNL Santa Surprise Sack

In conjunction with Digital Scrapbook Place's Christmas in July celebration, the SNL group is giving away some freebies during their regular chat on Saturday night.

My contribution is a kit I originally made in November 2007. Since I design at 300ppi and then convert all my files to 200ppi to meet the SNL rules, I am offering this kit in both sizes so you can choose the size you prefer.

If you use my kit to make a layout, please send me a link to your gallery and I'll be glad to show your layout on my blog.

Also included in the zip file is this plopper:

Bow Tutorial

I wrote this tutorial several months ago and have seen that there has been quite a bit of interest in it from different forums and yahoo groups. Since the old SNL website where it has been hosted is going to be taking it down in a month or two, I decided to add it to my blog in addition to the new SNL website.

A discussion thread related to the tutorial remains on the DSP forum here:

This is a preview of the finished bow you can make using this tutorial:

You can download the tutorial here.

Another Peek at the New Kit

This layout was also done with the kit I will be releasing on August 1. I used a template by Ann (the3chickens). It is template #4 available here: While you're there check out the rest of Ann's blog. She does a super job of hunting down all of the best freebies and sales on digi-scrapping supplies.

I also found a really cool PSP script that drastically reduces your time in making a layout from a template. It is available here:
The download is in post #1 and there is a mini tutorial in post #17.

SNL Scrappers

I have been designing with the SNL Scrappers for about a year and a half. Once a month, we are given a color scheme and a theme. Each person then creates parts of a color-coordinated mega-kit.

Each person uploads their part to the SNL website on or before the end of the month. Then they are given access to download the parts that all the other members have created.

One member provides a tutorial each month and we hold a tutorial chat on the third Saturday of the month.

We all enjoy helping each other learn new techniques. And it's always exciting to see one of our members accepted at a shop to sell their creations.

If you would like more information about our group, click here: or on the blinkie on my sidebar. When you get to the site, click on the "New Member Guide" in the Site Navigation category.

Sneak Peek

This layout is a sneak peek at a kit I designed as part of a Collaboration Kit with the ADSDesigners yahoogroup. The kit will be released on August 1 on the blogs of several designers. Check back here for my part.

The photos were taken when Jenny and Jarrod were on vacation in China this past spring.
