Misty, I think it's pretty much up for whomever wants to try it out! Make a new thread with the product you wish to "test" and Toiny will PM you all the details!

I have actually made a bunch of papers and 1 element to match mostly all from Scratch. Yeah Me!

Here I was worried about colors and all I had to do was take a picture of Gods Creations and just like that I have colors to work with

Question

I am looking for A Link from last years Birthday Bash Designer Contest.
This Thread had a list of the amount of element & Papers to put in a kit.
The Standards for Mini Kit and Kit and Mega Kit.

Maybe one of our Fearless Leaders could copy and paste this info to a New Thread Here Please..........

It depends on if you are making a mini kit or a regular kit. I try to put at least 15-20 papers when making a regular kit and no more than 10 papers on a mini kit. I can't offer much advice on the elements. I try to put plenty of elements in my kits, but just not the same ones in different colors. Just about the only thing I will do in several colors of the same element is the brads or gems. I like to have all the colors in those, but everything else, I just try to make different items.

I was wondering that, too, about kit sizes. I had heard that you should always have at least twice as many elements than paper? And what size kits are usually selling better?

Yes! I try to put new elements in each kit but what I can think of is just flowers, leaves, bows, ribbons, brads, journaling stuffs, tags, beadspills, buttons.

Hey Toiny, my dear! I have a question that's been asked by a few on another site....

Is this program only for Kit designers? Or can Template designers or Wordart/Alpha designers play, too?

Thanks!


Of course, if they are allowed, I may have something up soon! Trying to make my first Kit is going to take awhile! I only have a few papers so far and I'm starting on my first elements now! :p At this rate, it should be finished sometime next year! LOL!


But, templates I can do!

Michelle Marie just told me about this. Like her I get your newsletter and have done some shopping in the shop. I'm new to designing and would love to try this out. Lots to learn and I like what I've been able to do so far. Let me finish the kit I'm working on now and I will post it. Give me about a week or so if you don't hear from me, you'll know I'm deep into photoshop.

Yep any Designers... you never know until you try. And that's for the store as well as the Designers.

Smooches,

Awesome Marcie! Start your own thread when you are ready... or check out the Next Designer contest. You might want to do both. I have to warn, you the Next Designer contest is intense. It is a lot of work in a short amount of time, but it does give a fairly realistic experience of what it is like to be a Designer. At least in the beginning when there is so much to learn, so many commitments.

Either, both, will give you a ton of new information you can put to good use in your Designing career.

Smooches,

T

Thanks T. I will look into that when it comes up. Timing may just be a problem for me. I've got two little kids so they take up a good deal of time. I'm so excited though to be giving this a try!
