June 2013 Make A Kit Challenge-CU Simple Pleasures Kit Freebie!

Ok, so the June 2013 Make A Kit Challenge over at Pixel Scrapper is still in progress and won't technically end until the end of this month, so be sure to check back at the end of June at Pixel Scrapper for some AWESOME designs that I am seeing over there . However, I decided to finish mine early, as I have
some other commitments here at home that will keep me busy the next few weeks. I made the first two weeks worth of challenge papers, then made some elements to go with it, followed by an alpha
and a solid paper pack. The colors came from my daughters bedroom, so pretty, and the theme came from some things my daughter loves, such as playing the violin, reading (she is a HUGE reader and is also currently writing a book), playing chess, riding and training her horse, and other things she loves. She also loves famous quotes from old times, which is where the "Esse quam videri" wordart comes from, meaning "to be, rather than to seem to be". So I decided to call this kit Simple
Pleasures. I made it CU friendly for you to use in your designs if you wish, and I hope you like it:)
May God bless you all this week and give you all a special love hug!
As always, don't forget to leave some love, your encouragement really keeps me going like a hot cup of coffee in the morning and a warm ray of sunlight through my window:) Thanks!!
 
You can now grab this HERE at Pixel Scrapper:)



And here is the CU Solid Papers pack that goes with this kit:)

Has been moved, be sure to grab this HERE at Pixel Scrapper:)
This entire kit consists of 15 patterned papers, 69 elements, 1 uppercase alpha, and a
solid paper pack consisting of 6 solid papers:) If you run on over to Pixel Scrapper, you can
now get a coordinating set of some fun Chipboard Layer Styles to go with it:)

  18. Ok, I already commented, but I am going to comment some more. :) I am a stay-at-home mom. My kiddos are sick, and I'm not feeling so great myself. It's been one-of-those-days. The house is a mess and I have absolutely zero motivation to do anything. While perusing the internet I found your blog from someone else's pin on Pinterest. You seriously have made my day. I love all your stuff and FREE??! That is incredible! I've been wanting to bring in a little extra money (I currently do not work outside the home) and have considered and contemplated doing some sort of business with graphic design / scrapbooking / invitations, etc. I enjoy doing that and am (relatively) good at it. Finding your FREE CU things seriously has almost made me cry. I am so happy and feel so blessed by your generosity. Seriously, thank you.

    Also, I had a question. When you use the texture pages, do you just set them over another color or paper as an overlay? That is the only thing I've known how to do but I am wondering if there is a better / more effective way of using them. I work in PSE8.

    1. I am sooo glad that you feel blessed by my designs. It was always my intention to bless others in any way that I could with any talent that God has bestowed upon me in Jesus' name. I have had those kind of days myself and it is so hard on a mom when the little one's are sick, let alone everything else that goes wrong in that day. I am happy that you feel better and pray that you will be a successful designer in the future:) You should check out Pixel Scrapper, that is where I hang out and LOVE it there.I've learned so much there and the people are so loving and accepting. As for the texture paper, there are many ways to do it, but I prefer putting the paper texture above a color layer and using the "color" blending mode for the paper texture. The other way I love is just making the paper texture as "overlay" above the color layer. Either way is good, its just the "color" blending mode comes closest to the color I am using as the color layer, if that makes sense,lol:) I am using cs5 though, I think it would be the same for pse8 though. Anyway, May God bless you in your future designs, and I hope to see you at Pixel Scrapper:)
