August is when I start to wish for the cooler days and nights of autumn. School children in Nebraska return to school in mid-August (I know, it’s definitely still summer here) which sends my thoughts to school supplies and library books and laughter on play grounds. I will be releasing a big collection called “Autumn’s Beauty” and decided to share this mini with you in advance. I think these colors will work for those of you who are in other parts of the world where the seasons are not the same as mine LOL. I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!


The color challenge works like this:
** CREATE A LAYOUT or a QP, Stacked Paper or Cluster -- use the mini kit I created or any kit in the chosen palette (be sure if you are creating with someone else's kit that they allow for freebies if you do a QP, Stacked Paper or Cluster)
** CREATE A MINI KIT from the palette to share with us (please put the download link in your gallery post, not here in the thread)
** post your layout and/or kit it in the Color Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g535-color-challenge.html)

Then come back to this thread and leave us a link to your gallery post so we can all take a look and leave some love.

As a participation reward, we offer a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases in our Personal Use Store for the following month! So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted to the gallery (AND post a link here in this forum to the gallery), you will receive 10% off of every purchase made next month in our personal use store (only the PU store)! No coupons required, the discount will automatically apply to your purchase(s).

I don't know if this is my last hurrah at kit making, since I quit designing (do designers ever really quit? :DD) but the palette inspired a theme and I just had to do at least one more. This kit is rather personal because it's where I am in life. And I don't see any kits about aging, so I've made this one for my own photos and called it The Autumn Years. So it still has the autumn theme, but with a different perspective. Links are in the gallery and soon on my blog.

Originally I was just going to make some clusters. Well that snowballed into a kit and clusters. Here's the previews.

Beautiful mini! I plan on being back soon with a layout - so thanks much!

08-12-2013, 06:42 AM
health-wise this month sucks thus far & my creative software is acting cranky, so I made a quick page freebie


if things improve & the kit gets done, I'll post it

seeing some fabulous contributions, & if my body wasn't currently screaming "go back to bed"..

Quick question... is it okay to use someone's mini kit they created for this challenge to make a QP to share?

You have to be sure that their TOU says it is permissable to create freebie from their kits. send them an email if it isnt clear.

TOU's - of course! ::newbie:: :))

Thank you all so much. These kits are all so wonderful! Now I just have to find time to make a LO from them.

08-21-2013, 12:48 PM
I must have gotten brave this month or something. I have never really created too much before, but thought this would be a good time to try. You can download the papers as well.

08-27-2013, 04:55 PM
I finished a page for this challenge, yay. A big THANK YOU to all of the talented ladies who created freebies, I used a mix of quite a few of them to complete my LO.

I'm not ready for fall, but I enjoyed playing with this photo from my visit to my grandparent's last year. :)

Sorry to hear about you Mom. I do know all about caring for parents and just how time consuming it can be.. Hope your life returns to normal soon.

My computer has been dead for 5 weeks so I'm so happy to have an opportunity to participate but I'm forgetting how to do everything. :DD
