Freebie time again!

Filed under: Freebies,Getting Creative — Lucie @ 11:26 pm

This time for the My Scrap Shop Design a Kit Challenge. If you’re new to digital designing, or just want to have a go, it’s a great friendly environment to share your work, and pick up new skills.

 I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this month’s kit until I started playing with the color swatch and made the first paper. I was instantly reminded and inspired by some of my favourite paintings, Monet’s Water Lillies. From this, the kit evolved to Summer in Monet’s Garden. I tried some new things with this one, and so I hope you like it!

CU bargains

Filed under: It's Sale Time,Reviews — Lucie @ 11:37 am

I wanted to let you know about the new overlay set Mel from MCA Designs has released this week over at My Scrap Shop. It’s her birthday this week, and to celebrate she’s put together 100 overlays, plus a tutorial on how to use them, for just $10.

Be quick, it’s only at this sale price for the rest of this week. At only 10c an overlay, it’s worth checking out.

While you’re there, take a peek at PillowGirls’ latest CU Stash. She’s up to #8 and they’re a great addition to any designer’s toolkit.

 I’ll have a new freebie for you all soon, so don’t forget to come back soon :) .
