Geplaatst door Melanie op 9:58 AM 11 reacties


The creative Dreams forum is open!!! Go check it out for some great challenges and postingprizes. (Creative Dreams banner is linked to portal). There´s a templatechallenge, a colourchallenge but I want to encourage you to participate in the 1-2-3 challenge as I´m hosting it, for the very first time so I could use some support of you guys!!!!!!! Also you can snag this mini-kit I made for the colourchallenge! (image is linked)


Hypermommmy (designs by crazy diamond) gave me this award!!! Thanks!!!!!!


Now I have to nominate 7 more blogs, and leave some love on their blogs ofcourse!!!!! Now that was a tricky one, as I tagged people of the creative dreams CT, I had to stick with my own CT, but most of them already received it, but as there are so many great blogs and people out there I managed to come up with 7:

Last but not least another add-on for the JUMP ABC kit, nothing fancy, just a bunch of ricracs I made using bannerwomans script, 2 of each colour!!!!

Yeah, I´m on another CT!!!! This time for Anne of Creative Dreams! Just look at what I did with some of her stuff. This kit is called Summer Sherbet, the colours are really bright, I especially like the puffy transparant orange arrow journalingblock, I used it a lot in my second LO! (paperpreview will take you to the store!)

Another page about me again, fellow CT member Rhonda challenged me to make a LO about the "6 keywords to describe me" tag I had on my blog, probably just getting back to me as I tagged her LOL!!!

This other kit is called Vintage Blush. I love the colours in this one! It has a lot of pretty elements as well. Not only for vintage LO´s, but could very well be used for boys or girls!!! (previews will take you to the store!)

I even made it into a quickpage! And you can win this!!! Soon the forum of creative dreams will be opening and you will be able to get some really nice goodies. This QP will be the reward of a numbers challenge, we´ll have a templatechallenge, a colourchallenge. Also there will be designer´s challenges. But I´ll give you all a note when the festivities start!!!!! But you can already take a look around at the site, the shop has some really good stuff, some freebies (even CU freebies!!!), I especially like the designer´s resources!

Did you all like the CT collab? An what about the Backyard Playground collab? I´m really loving the adsd group, I´m learning a lot, and we have some great challenges. Last one was an alpha challenge. I didn´t know it was such a hard job. So I just made a really simple one in the JUMP colours! Hope it will useful to you!

Ready for some bloghopping???

Geplaatst door Melanie op 1:00 AM 24 reacties
Oké, let´s get ready for some good old bloghopping!!!!! Last month I joined the wonderful yahoogroup: Aspiring Digiscrap Designers. It´s a great learning plave with many tuts, CUfreebie links, and just a lot of helpful info for people who are starting in digiscrap designing. They did a huge collab last month, posicle paradise. And everyone is so enthusiastic that even though this month´s collab is not even up yet, we´ve already voted on the theme and colourscheme for the next one!!!!! In this months collab there over 40(!!!!!!!!!) people collaborating, so if you want to grab all the parts, get ready for it!!!! (only my part consists out of 3 downloads, and I think some have even more!). All the links to the other parts are at the bottom of this post. The links will be up for the whole month of July though, so don´t worry if you´re not on high-speed!!!! We voted on more of a boy-theme, and came up with the tile: BACKYARD PLAYGROUND (but it will be prefect for outside playing girls as well!) Mine has 4 plain textures papers, and 6 patterned, the texture on all of the papers is jeansfabric. Also I did some extractions of my son´s toys! Well, just go ahead with it, let me know what you like, what I can improve, and show us what you make!!!! So grab my part here, leave some love, and hop over to the other parts! Oh and a special thank you to Debbie (Beckmoore´s scrapalittle) who made this qp out of my contribution, ofcourse I used it right away!

you can get this quickpage on her blog here:

The FUN word I added myself, it´s donw here and you can just download it by right clicking, save as..... terms of use are the same as in the other parts!

And also Heather found some time to make a quickpage out of my part, look what I did with it:

Grab it at her blog here (she has about 15 downloads for you!!!!)

So here are my parts, make sure you grab them all!
