Well... well... so if we use PS and we use some styles and shapes and brushes (which come with the program) you'll consider them as plug-ins... if my understanding is correct. But please don't tell me that we would have to list the name of each shape or brush or filter If I use PS CS6, I only add a note as I used the default PS CS6 program with its presets, correct?

I'm not sure to understand... Should we use at least 2 graphical editors?

And last point...
The Rules:
Use any local activity or place to create your own palette & your own Stay-cation theme. Use the word Stay-cation in your mini, but add your unique spin to truly make it yours.

I should use the word for what? a word art or for the name of the kit? Sorry... I'm French...

Thank you.

Don't apologize!
You can just credit your program, not each brush you use from the defaults.

You can use more than one program. You dot have to.

Yes, you need to use the word stay-cation as a word art or in the title, or both! If I were you, I'd do it in English and French!

Yes, just give credit in your TOU.

I think it will be easier for me to create everything by myself.

So, I am in a total panic about my textures. I have scanned some, and can use them if need be, but if I am understanding this all correctly, I can also go to the shop and buy some CU4CU textures to use?

TYSM for your reply.
I've planned to work on it on Thursday... At the moment I'm just thinking to the palette I'm going to choose and which main embie I'm going to create... I have an idea

Yesterday my *BMF* Karina wrote me that:
...I was thinking this week will be up your alley as you can not use CU products.
I hope Karina that you don't mind that I post that here I love this email. That made me smile after a very busy day!!! That's good!
Well, well... I couldn't give up now when we have to demonstrate that we can create a kit without CU... Hummm... that's a great challenge! I'll see if I'm able to design without CUs... I don't know... I'm going to see... What do you think of Karina? So... So... Just need to find enough time.

This is a VERY tough round ... and you're lucky Toiny is letting you use CU4CU products ... AND plug-ins. If I remember correctly, I whined last year about not being able to use FilterForge because it was a "plug-in" ... and actually got to use it because I only used filters that I had created.

Someone previously made a very good comparison ... while you are creating a strictly Personal Use kit, create it in the same way you would if you were creating a Commercial Use product.

Dani has LOTS of VERY cool CU4CU products (and it's on sale) ... I also understand that everything in Flower Scraps store is CU4CU. Another designer that creates a lot of CU4CU is SweetMade. There may be others, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

I probably answered your question above, but yes ... you can go to the store and buy some CU4CU textures.

If you have a scanner, start scanning. I made some really cool textures scanning fabric ... towels ... sweaters ... I even took some packaging tape and went around my yard and picked up all kinds of strange stuff (real grungy stuff). You can even scan different papers (rice paper is a favorite of mine) and use them as textures ... just make sure there isn't a copyrighted print on whatever you use.

Done
Kit and links posted in gallery
I've used amazing CU4CU brushes by Sweet Made INC.
Here is preview my kit:



And a few words about my kit. (Sorry for my bad English.)
I live in a beautiful, historic town. Almost every building is a historical monument.
I was not sure if I can use the image of the most famous sights of Krakow.
Then I thought to do a set of Kazimierz - the place that was once the Jewish ghetto, now restored and very beautiful.
But behind my window is very cold and still raining ...
when I thought that I should go with the camera to get wet in the rain with my one year old daughter ... I think - never in my life!
And then I think of an idea came to me - after all, every summer we spend time in the garden! I have photos of flowers from the garden, plants - and I used this idea
