So many things going on!
First, I need to plug a new kit. My friend, Amanda Lacey (mandabean) found out some heartbreaking news. Her mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and in an effort to raise money for her, Manda enlisted over 60 designers to help her create a fundraiser kit. 'Angel Eyes' is HUGE, for one thing, and it is one of those amazing things that happens when good people come together to help a friend. Things like this make me happy. I wish I had known about it from the beginning and been a part in creating it, but I am happy just to give her some publicity! :) In addition to this HUGE kit being only $10, you also get a fabulous coupon book from some amazing designers. This is too good to pass up!
purchase this kit I would greatly appreciate any support you could give her, be it verbal, prayers, or through purchasing this spectacular kit! Thank you!
Second on the list is MY new kit! I have been working on this sucker for quite a while now and my CT has been so wonderful in helping me out! I really love asking their advice and opinions regarding my new stuff. They are invaluable to me. Thanks, girls! Now, keep in mind that I am totally bonkers and that I design what is in my head at the time...so for those of you who were first introduced to me via my Portobello Rd kit probably won't be really drawn to my new one. That's ok, though! I know not everyone will like this and I am totally ok with that...but for those of you who DO get excited about this kit, I can't wait to see you use it! It will be in the boutique at www.thedigichick.com on Thursday. Ok, without further ado:
Click on it to see it a bit larger and clearer. I have been DYING to show this baby off! I love the comic book 'look' and so I really tried my best to emulate that and turn the essentials of comic books into something a scrapper could use. This can be used in 2 main ways...first you can create a comic book page...either using the template I have included or by simply making your own...there are lots of embellishments to help you do that. OR you can use the 'look' of a comic book page and create something really fun, loud, and "outside the box''! You can convert your photos to black and white and cut them out to make them POP off the page or you can literally turn your photos into drawings (if your program allows it) and create your own comic pages from storyboard photos you have. This would also be perfect for those occasions when you've taken a TON of photos of one event! It's just jam-packed with tape, cardstock, paper, brads, and brushes to make your pages especially unique. Ok, enough talking about this kit!! :D Can you tell I am really excited about it!?!?!?
I am going to get this to my CT today and hopefully I will have some layouts to show you as examples!!
In other news....I am also going to take over the assembly of the De-Zine at the DigiChick. This is BIG for me...I really want to bring my own twist to it and I am really excited about working with the De-Zine staff on this. They are a really amazing group of gals and we are so lucky to have them at the DigiChick. Speaking of the site...Friendship Day is coming up and we have lots of fun stuff planned....double up kits & tons of other goodies!! Check it out:
Isn't this ad the cutest thing ever? Darla Vasquez is in charge of all our ads and she has really been knocking our socks off lately!
Ok, that is all I have to post about right now...NOW I need to get working on all the stuff I have to do...my life just keeps getting busier and busier!! Ciao!! :)
