View Full Version : Designer Club Challenge

Hello all!

It has been requested that those of you not moving on to Week 2 get a little challenge of your own. Sounds fabulous to me! Practice makes perfect and there is some talent here!!!

I have set-up a gallery just for y'all:


As for your challenge... that's not up to me, but I do ask that you resist using the same color scheme & theme as our Week 2 contestants. Or it may just be confusing for our voters.

so if we want we can make a mini kit without any stress or any rules just w/o the exception of using the theme n colors of the other designers?

oh yeah the deal here is to design along with the contestants..which means by their rules (but we will be flexible) just don't tell anyone!!...LOL..LOL..LOL..LOL...but we get to use our own swatch and theme and we don't have any stress though...i will give you a swatch and a theme and then we can play with that...that way it is similar but not the same as if you were in the contest still...KWIM???....i would ordinarily give you a choice of theme and colour but i think as though we are trying to emulate the designer contest we need someone to give us a theme and colour swatch to use...ooh and i know just the person...i will ask her!!..okay???...cheers liz:D:D:D:D:D

That sounds awesome to me, Liz. Looking forward to it. I can't wait to see what you come up with for a color palette.

09-10-2009, 02:08 AM
Ok, so here is a color for you to work with according to the same instructions as the SAS Designer Competition but with a different theme:


The palette can be a minimum of 3 colors, up to as many as you wish. You must include the palette on the front of your kit preview (with or without hex codes); and in your zip files with the hex codes.

The theme is "In the Garden", but you may name your kit alternately if desired.


Please follow all the quality guidelines from Round 1 of the Designer Competition
Develop a palette using 69789e as one of the colors
Use the theme "In the Garden"
8 papers, 5 must be unique (read, not recolored)
12 elements, 8 must be unique (a clustered element using other elements may be considered unique)
Include the palette with hex codes in you zip files
You must post two previews; one regular, with palette, and one close-up
Preview size must be 72 DPI, 600X600
CU items are allowed this round
Post previews & links to downloads in the Challenge Gallery.

This Challenge will be due September 15, 2009 by 3:00 pm EST the same as the Designer Competition.

Theme: 'In the Garden'

Fab color choice, Misty! Can't wait to see the kits!

Jeanette, what a great color and theme for us. I'll have to get started.

Oh yes, do we just put a link to our kit on our blogs instead of in our description of the kit here at the SAS gallery?

Yes you can put the link on your blogs but it wouldn't hurt to put it in the gallery description also, the more the merrier!!!

This will be fun. It will give us that are not moving on a chance to get back on the horse!

So how are you ladies going with your challenge?? How many of you are in here, maybe you need a roll call :)
Post your name and each person who is participating adds their name so that you form a list, then we know who to watch for fabulous minis :D

09-13-2009, 06:26 PM
That's a good idea... it's been kind of quiet in here... :)

09-14-2009, 04:49 AM

I know that meeting deadlines is crucial for designing for a store, but i cannot finish this today. I was just getting ready to list all the reasons i couldn't get this done (including 16-20 hour work days since 9/6), but really they are not that important to anyone but me and if i every did decide that i would do a store on top of my paying job, i'd have to deal with it.

That being said, i still don't want to get kicked out of the Designer Club Challenge even though i fail this round. I am at work and have to attend to it, but hope I can stay here. I will finish this kit tonight! The preview may suck but i WILL finish--actually, i'll finish it even if i can't stay, lol.

thanks for considering.

Harried, but still

That's okay Denise... I believe the rules are not so strict in this side challenge, so take your time.... You won't get kicked out for not meeting deadline!! :D

09-15-2009, 02:37 PM
Phew! thanks!

THat's good to know because mine is going to be late to :( . I spent last night in the ER with what I thought was a broken foot, and it's just a torn ligament, so I get to walk around on crutches for awhile. Then today I was at the hospital with my Mom because she was having outpatient surgery :eek: . What a week it's been ! I'll get it posted as soon as I can though.

09-15-2009, 04:12 PM
Oh no! I hope you heal quickly, Kim!! :)

This challenge is way more relaxed and fun than the Contest! :p No set deadlines, just challenges posted for the remaining weeks! And, it's totally an option to join in, no requirements! So, relax... have fun... create.... and enjoy! :D

09-17-2009, 12:28 PM
(now where did i put that post!) I thought i had posted this, but i guess i didn't!

My submission is in the gallery; it's called On the Farm (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=42863). You can download the kit from the gallery or here (http://www.4shared.com/file/133351944/e6e10904/LLG_OTF.html) or on my blog (http://lovinlifegurl.blogspot.com).

Thanks for looking and i look forward to the helpful, constructive comments!

09-18-2009, 07:58 AM

I'm so happy you are going to stick around and do the challenge! :D
