STBT May 2022 | A Walk In The Park

If you've been following the Scrap Twist Blog Train since we started in 2017, you may remember this month's theme as being the one that started this whole thing. I was part of the beginner team in a "Pass The Kit" challenge at Pixel Scrapper (now known as Digital Scrapbook). We took it in turns to create an element or a paper, and once one of us had created our item, it was then the next person's turn. It was a fun, intense, sometimes chaotic two weeks that ended up with the group deciding that we wanted to keep designing together -- and so the Scrap Twist Blog Train was born! 

May 2022 is our 5-year blog train designing anniversary, (May 2017's train was "Flea Market"!), so we are revisiting the theme that brought the core group of Scrap Twist designers together. We've had changes in membership in those five years; some original designers have left (for one reason or another), new designers have joined us, and some of us are part of the furniture, and have been here the whole time!

I know that, for me, I can see a real difference in my design skills when I compare 2017's "A Walk In The Park" to the 2022 version. For example, this month's bundle has both a painted elements kit and a painted papers kit; I've been using Photoshop Elements for some time now, and until now, I have never used brushes. I recently bought some brushes that I simply fell in love with, and started playing with them, and the result is these two kits. I find that, when I'm designing, one idea leads to another: "I wonder what would happen if I tried this.... or that....?"

Before we get into the downloads, I'm letting you know now that two of the paper kits are very large; PK02 is 180 MB, while PK06 is 125 MB. I have a bit of a "rule of thumb" that if a kit is over 110-120 MB, then I will split the kit into 2 or 3 smaller parts, to make it easier to download. So, those two kits can either be downloaded as the full kit OR parts 1 and 2. Simply choose the method that works for you.

Ok, that's enough about all that, let's get into the downloads! Here are the elements:

Scrap Twist Easter Collaboration

Hello! Welcome back to my blog for a mid-month special event. This isn't a blog train as such; it's more of a collaboration by some of the Scrap Twist designers. 

Let me explain. Sherry (of Nellie Bell) asked a few weeks ago if any of us would like to join her on an faith-based Easter collaboration. I said that I was interested, and that I would at least do some papers. 

Well. You know me (or you should by now)! Those papers eventually developed into a bundle. What can I say? I don't seem to be able to do 'small', do I? So, 10 element kits and 15 paper kits later -- here it is:

UPDATED LINKS | 09 April 2022

 As regular visitors to this blog will already know, I am in the process of updating and upgrading my previous Scrap Twist kits and bundles, as a lot of the older download links were broken. This post is to let you know that I have now updated another bundle, the Asian Serenity blog train from July 2017. I'm going to add to and re-post this list each time I have fixed another one of the older posts. 

Here are the links to all the posts I have fixed so far:

April 2017 | A Walk In The Park [Bundle] You can find the updated links HERE

May 2017 | Flea Market [Kit] You can find the updated links HERE

June 2017 | Birds Of A Feather [Kit] You can find the updated links HERE

July 2017 | Asian Serenity [Mega Bundle] You can find the updated links HERE


Lots more to come!

UPDATED LINKS | Asian Serenity

 Hello there!

As you probably know by now, a lot of the very early links in this blog have stopped working, for one reason or another. (This applies to all of the 2017 posts, plus about half of the 2018 posts.) So, I'm using this as an opportunity to update or upgrade some of the kits as well as giving you new links for these kits and bundles. 

When I started these updates, I intended to update the links in each post. Well, that's simple enough for most of the posts, where there are only a few kits... but NOT for the bundles that were originally month-long daily downloads! "Tedious" is not a strong enough word for trying to do it that way! So, I have now decided that these "Mega Bundles" will be getting the update that's easiest for me: to place every new link in ONE very long blog post, and to put a link to the new post into each of the original daily posts, so it'll be easily accessible to you. (I hope all that makes sense!)

Anyway, here is the first "Mega Post", for the Asian Serenity bundle which was originally given away during the month of July 2017. There are a total of 95 kits in this bundle, but you can take your time to download them, because these links should stay up for a very long time!

The daily downloads originally started with two Sampler Kits, so if you're new here, you might want to download these to get a feel for the whole bundle. See if you even want to download everything! However, if you are intending to download the whole bundle, you don't need to download these two sampler kits, because all of the items in them are included in the various kits in the actual bundle.

Let's get downloading!


Here are the 2 Sampler Kits:

Elements Sampler (19.6 MB)

Papers Sampler (143 MB)

(As this is a large kit, you can choose to download the full kit in one go, 
or in two separate, smaller, parts. Simply choose the 
download option that suits you the best.)
