New Releases at The Digichick October 27, 2016

New releases at The Digichick October 27 are a virtual cornucopia of delight.  I had the pleasure of working with a couple of new products this week.  I created this layout with Circle of Friends template by Christaly using Created by Jill’s new kit, Roll with the Changes.

Layout #2 was created using Shades of Grey by Veronica Spriggs.  I love the colors in this mostly monochromatic kit.  It made me think of our countries current state of affairs where so many insist there is no definite right or wrong but many shades of grey that should impact our decisions.  I disagree with that philosophy but it is an indicator of the times in which we live.

Infographics Style Scrapbook Layout

Infographics Style

To say I’m intrigued by the infographics style scrapbook layout might be an understatement. The Scrapaneers Champions Class for April 2016 is all about infographics.  After I watched the video I became obsessed with making a scrapbook layout in that style.  I’d never done one before but I really like how infographics look so I’ve been thinking about it for a few days. I finally chose one of the templates from the class and got started.  I am really pleased with how it turned out and hope to use this style more in the future.  What about you?  If you haven’t used infographics as an inspiration previously, I challenge you to give it a try.

New Releases at The Digichick October 20, 2016

New releases at The Digichick for October 20th are mostly centered around Halloween.  That makes it difficult for someone like me that does not promote or participate in Halloween!  But Alexis Design Studio has a lovely sewing themed kit this week. Grandma’s Sewing Room is perfect for sewing layouts.

Next Designer Competition Round 1 Freebies

I Made It Through the Next Designer Competition Round 1

I entered the Next Designer Competition at DigitalScrapbookingStudio this month.  So far I made it through Round 1 voting. Whew!  It wasn’t easy.  Most of the competitors are already professional designers, selling their goods in store across digi-land.  Voting for Round 2 starts Friday at 11:59 am EST.  I’ve got my entry posted and hope to make it through Round 2 voting. Since Round 1 is complete I’ve got freebies for you.  In Round 1, we made 5 cardstock and 5 patterned papers.  We’re limited to the color palette that won the Pick the Palette contest. Let me tell you, it’s very difficult to be limited to 5 colors plus black & white to darken/lighten them. My design is about autumn leaves so I would have loved to be able to use yellow and green! To get the freebies click the download links below.

Freebie #1 – Cardstock

Freebie #2 – Patterned Papers

Round #2 Elements

For Round #2, we are still confined to using the very limited color palette plus black & white. I’ve posted my entry and I will post the link to vote on Friday afternoon.  Here’s a preview of the elements I created.  Once the voting is complete I’ll post the download link here. I need your vote to move on.
