Updated Kit | Autumn Art

Hello all!

I'm still working on updating some of my oldest kits, and today I have an updated version of Autumn Art, which was my very first Pixel Scrapper Blog Train contribution. The papers and quotes are the same as I offered in October 2014, but I have completely remade the word strips, so that they look more like the items I currently design. I'm offering the kit as not only the full kit, but have also split it into 2 element kits and 2 paper kits, for those of you who have slower connections. I hope you like the updated kit!

This kit can be downloaded from GOOGLE DRIVE:

Large Kits Now In Smaller Downloads

Hello again!

One of the Scrap Twist Free4All members commented that the recently updated Purple Passion and Drama Queen paper kits were too large for her to download. I had a feeling that this might be the case for some people, which is why I said I would split the kits if necessary. I truly don't know why I didn't just do it at the time, as it has only taken me about half an hour to split, rezip and upload the split files! From now on, I promise to offer the option for smaller downloads for larger kits!

Here are the kit previews once more, with the links to the smaller downloads beneath each preview;

Paper Bundle Updated!

Continuing on from my last post, I have now finished updating my first paper bundle, Sugared Almonds. The colour palette for this was based on the almonds that were covered in a pastel-coloured hard candy shell, then put in little decorative bags on the tables at weddings, etc. I don't know if these are even made any more, but they were quite a "thing" here years ago.

Here is the palette I used:

The original paper bundle had 4 kits of 10 papers each, and featured flat (untextured) solids and gradients, plus over-large textures & patterns -- so it definitely needed redoing!! This updated version has 5 kits of 10 papers each, and I'm much happier with it this time around!

Here are the new kits:

PK01 Solid Papers (68.1 MB)

PK02 Gradient Papers (52.7 MB)

PK03 Bokeh Lake Gradient Papers (47.8 MB)

PK04 Painted Gradient Papers (47.4 MB)

PK05 Patterned Papers (66.6 MB)

Well, I hope you enjoy using these papers -- and I would love to see anything you make with them (or anything else on this blog) -- maybe you could share links in the comments below.

New And Improved!

Does anyone else hate it when products are advertised as "New" and "Improved"? I always think 'How can something be improved if it's new?' And what has got me off on this tangent, you are probably asking yourself! Well, I've been designing for about 4 years now, and I've recently been reviewing all my old kits and, I have to tell you, I'm not happy with the quality of the first few kits I made! So, I have started to make new versions of them, and I'm offering the first two kits here for you today.

I'm also reorganizing my hard drives, as well as my file storage sites; eventually, I want the three file sharing sites to have the same files, stored in the same folders on each site. I use Dropbox, Google Drive and Jumpshare, and I will eventually be using Google Drive as a storage and backup drive, and offering downloads from both Dropbox and Jumpshare for each kit. But that's down the track a little bit -- I have a lot of work to do before then!

Anyway, on to the updated kits! They are both paper kits, each containing 20 brand new papers for you. The first one is an update of the very first kit I ever made, and offered on my freebie thread at Pixel Scrapper:

PK001 Purple Passion (159 MB)

Download from GOOGLE DRIVE

The second kit I have for you today is an update of the second paper kit I made:

PK002 Drama Queen (180 MB)

Download from GOOGLE DRIVE

I know that these kits are rather large, so if anyone has any problems downloading large files, please let me know, and I'll split the kits into 2 downloads if you need me to. 

I hope you enjoy using the kits!

June 2018 Scrap Twist Blog Train

Welcome back for another Scrap Twist Blog Train! Our theme this month is "Water Splash", with the palette and theme being set by Olga from LadyDGScraps. You will find a lot of 'watery' goodness from the designers this month -- and you will notice that we have added another designer to our ranks: Sunny - Rush Ranch. Many of you will be familiar with Sunny from Pixel Scrapper, and her Rush Ranch blog. We are thrilled to have Sunny join us, and I'm sure you will be, too.

Here is the palette Olga set for us:

I chose to use only two colours from the palette, the light and medium blues, to which I added white, and I made a pack of 36 papers for you to download this time:
