You've done a lovely job here, If I may make a suggestion it would be to add some drop shadows to your previews to gain more depth and make them stand out more in the crowd/gallery/store ...

Thank you Mistybelle for your comment. As a matter of fact the kit that I am submitting to the New Designer Program I am including drop shadows on the previews. You are correct the images do stand out more! Any other suggestions? Thank you again and all suggestions are welcomed as I am just starting to design and probably need all the help I can get. Have a wonderful day!

I like the browns and the blues in your kit. The drop shadows on the preview will work wonders. Also, once get a few kits done, try playing around with your previews. It may make a big difference. I may be able to help if you would like a preview template to work with to put your stuff on. Just let me know. I think you should do well in the contest. One last thing, if you have a 5-7 color pallete, try to limit the number of items that come in all colors. I did that at first and noticed that others kits had one or two colors of each item, maybe three. Maybe do one type of ribbon in 2-3 colors and then another type of ribbon in 2-3 other colors. I still like to put a few of the basics, though, in all of the colors. Just suggestions. I think you are doing well. We all started somewhere and you will only get better from here!!!!

Melanie, I would love for you to supply me with a template for laying out my previews. For some reason I have a problem with that. lol Not sure why. Yes it does make sense not to have the same image in every color. In the "sample kit" I am submitting to the New Designer Program I did not kreate every image in every color. Thank you for your advise! Feel free to keep giving. Have a wonderful day! Thank you again!
