Backyard Buddies Mini Kit

The Designer Challenges at Pixel Scrapper are so much fun. For this one, Marisa asked us to create add-on mini kits for her pet bundle. She did puppies and kitties to get us started, and we could call dibs on any other pets we could think of for our mini kits.  Here are Marisa’s kits . . . adorable!

I chose to do the creepy-crawly backyard variety of pets that my son loved best of all.  If it was cold-blooded, scaly, slick, or slimy–he would name it and bring it in the house!  I put as many of them as I could come up with in this mini-kit, and I tried my best to make ’em cute.

“Favorite Things” Mini Kit . . . family, kisses, quilts and more!

 We had another mini kit challenge at Pixel Scrapper.  No theme, just a list of the things to make for the kit–which is a ton of fun, IF you have the spark of an idea for what direction you might like to go with things.  Which I didn’t.  *sigh* I hemmed.  I hawed.  There might have even been some gnashing of my teeth.  Then I finally thought to visit Brandi Girl Blog and go shopping for some color inspiration.  Problem solved! It seems I never fail to find a palette (or ten) that inspires me to open up Photoshop and start throwing pixels around.

Here is the palette I fell in love with this time . . .

BOO-tiful Dreamer Mini Kit

Once again we are designing mini kits over at Pixel Scrapper.  This time I went with a Halloween theme.  I made up my own palette of BOO-tiful colors and I also drew my own stars and moon shapes. The patterned papers are all done from templates I created, as well.  Slowly but surely, I am getting this designing business figured out, I think. (Mmmmmm–maybe not–but I am having a bunch of fun anyway! LOL!)
