Here's a taster of the latest Scrap(K)it I am working on:
L'Hiver - Winter scenes.
Rather than design a Christmas set I wanted to create something that is more versatile and will work for various religions and belief systems; seasonal, rather than Christmas-only.
So here's a taster of what's to come. The kit will include not just one set of five colour patterns but two sets of five colour-coordinated patterns. I've chosen ice cream colours with a 50s feel to the designs.
The second set is a play on snowflakes. The snowflakes themselves are brushes I created specifically for this kit. The colours in these more abstract/ornamental patterns coordinate with the patterns of the first set. This should make designing scrapbooking pages and greeting cards fun and easy.
The kit is not ready yet as I still have to do the transparency patterns, the frames and the stamps.
Feel free to send me suggestions of things you'd like to see in this or other kits.
I will also offer a Christmas pattern add-on kit that will be free with every purchase in November and December. Hopefully, by the end of October 2 kits will be ready for you to buy - either fromt his blog or from my new Etsy shop (when I've opened it, LOL).
I've almost finished the Butterfly kit and it'll be ready for testing in the next few days. I'll post some preview pictures then, too. The other collections are coming on alongside it.
There will be Art Nouveau and Art Deco collections, a Grunge and Goth collections, a Christmas collection, and a Fleur collection. I have some others planned as well as add-on collections to existing ones, plus corners, borders and swirls and curls.
A new venture and an all new blog to go with it. :-)
I'll be publishing my own kits of patterns, digi stamps, and frames within the next month, once they're all finished and ready and have been tested by Nunt over on PiquantPurls.
The kits will include around 5 coloured and 5 black & white patters, five frames, and five stamps, all matching a theme. The first pack will be 'Butterflies' and should be extremely pretty and fun. I'll also include a small booklet with tips and tricks on how to use the contents of the kit.
The kits are designed for crafters and for personal use rather than commercial use. This means they can be used on items you make - cards, scrap book pages etc - and then sold or given away, however you cannot sell the kits themselves or any of the contents of the kit in any shape or form. If you want to use the patterns, stamps and/or frames in a commercial context, contact me and I am sure we can come to some arrangement. A detailed policy will be posted later this month.
The kits will be available directly through this blog or in my new Etsy shop once I've set it up. :-)
I love making things - from knitting to crochet, (needle) felting to beading, from wire to yarn, silk to merino wool, from semi precious beads to polymer clay to silver, copper and brass, from hemp to jelly yarn, I have to play with it all. And that's not even including my painting and writing. There are just not enough hours in the day....
Being creative is part of who I am and there's nothing for it, I just have to play.
