Hello everyone

I am an amateur designer and enter quite a few forum challenges - you might have seen me here in the recipe card challenges and a few others.

I have made a kit for a design challenge at another forum and would like to share it with you.



Please download both parts to get the full kit.



I would love to have your comments and criticisms. :D

Thank you

Thank you so much.

I used the swatch that was in the forum but I modified it a bit to include some softer colours.

I really appreciate your comment.

Absolutely LOVE your papers and elements but think you could arrange your elements better no make it more appealing to market yourself, plus I would strongly encourage you to place your logo/name somewhere on the samples!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors! Purple is my fav!!
Thank so much for sharing!

Thank you for your comments. I am glad you like the kit.

The reason my name is not on the previews is because I made the kit for a forum challenge and I removed all the info that was on top of the previews, forgetting to put my design name back in.

Obviously when you download you will find out the forum I made it for.

I'm not into selling myself and the preview is what it is, just showing what is in the kit. I do this because I love doing it and want to share and give something back to the scrapbooking community.

Thank you again.

Your Elements show creativity. I am downloading now. The metal leaves caught my eye, with the veins put on them. I think the veins would look better if they were embossed to stand up a bit and draw more attention to them in a subtle way.

Your flower is a cute clever layered pair. Nice. Would real pop if there were a mix of accenting color on it.

The paper has some cute Ideas. I would blend the accents into them more. Keeping the colors but making them more subtle. I find it fun to play with embossing the smaller color accents on my paper by using the texture filter in Photoshop CS3

Dear Amberpony (sorry I don't know your first name)

Thank you so much for your comments.

I am quite new to this designing thing. I make my papers using overlays and some of my own creations but I do not really design many of my elements, I mostly use CU items and templates.

The wonderful metal leaves are from my good friend Brenda's Scrap Designs and I just recoloured them. She is the real creator here. If you read my TOU you will find the link to her blog and from there you can find her stores and the metal leaves.

I also use CU items from Jodiann in making some of my papers and elements. She has been very helpful and supportive to me. You will find her link in my TOU as well.

I make kits because I just love creating, but I am not the creative genius here. It is thanks to my good friends. I do quite a lot of colour challenges in different forums and just want to give something back to say thank you for the help I get and the freebies that I download.

Sorry to go on a bit but I just needed to clarify things.
