CU4CU tools, like brushes & custom-shapes are okay. CU is not. Plugins like Filter Forge & Eye Candy are also okay.

What is important is to see what you can create with your program, camera, scanner, imagination. I want to see your design skills on a plate, to quote all the fabulous cooking shows out there.

We do have a list of tutorials here: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...ad.php?t=11659

And on our blog: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...ory/tutorials/

HTH's!

So we have to make a CU product. We can use CU4CU products, and everything we made ourselves or is built in our program. Am I right?

What about Atomic Cupcake Actions? I think they are CU4CU.

I think I expressed myself wrong way. We have to create a kit like a CU product.

Yes, exactly. But just wait until Toiny or someone else verify it.

You will need to create your own items for the kit, not create a CU product. CU4CU products are OK, and yes, anything that came with your program is fine!

No, the kit is for PU - you just can not use any CU that you have downloaded or purchased to create it.

The TOU file that I have for Atomic Cupcake's actions does not list CU4CU, just CU - so no, these may not be used.

Yes. The brushes, filters, styles etc. that came with your software are fine.

CU4CU brushes, or the pre-set brushes from your program are OK.

I am making a call - No photo, just the colors. I can imagine that not everyone will be inspired by a photo this round, but maybe a mental picture of the things you like to do around your community. DO include the colors, and a photo if you'd like to!

The brushes, shapes, actions etc. that came with your program (or you created) are fine to use!

Eye candy is a plug-in so it is OK to use right? I'm just making sure i'm covering all my bases

Hey Everyone, I *think* I got to each of the questions to this point! Keep in mind - especially in this round CREDIT EVERYTHING. If we have a doubt that you created something yourself, we need to be able to check your TOU to see that you have credited it! Credit the built in brushes, the filters, the CU4CU you use - EVERYTHING!

Good luck! This is the TOUGHEST round !
