Digi Dare #129

From DigiDares.com

"For this week’s challenge, I want you to create your very own Best and Worst award list. The topic can be anything you want: best and worst movies, vacations, things about being a parent…feel free to get creative! The only requirement is that you include YOUR perspective. If you’d like to get someone else’s perspective to compare, I’m totally for that but this page is first and foremost about you."

Dare Flair:

• You must include at least 10 items in your list: 5 Bests and 5 Worsts. • Each of the 10 answers must be contained within it’s own separate space - think journaling blocks, strips, charts…get creative! • You must include at least one warm color (reds, oranges, yellows), one cool color (blues, greens, purples) and one neutral (black, white, kraft) on your page.

Well, it's not the most exciting page I've ever made, but I think it gets the point across. When I was thinking about Earth Day I was trying to think of all the things we do well and not so well in reference to taking care of the environment. We try pretty hard.

The elements in this kit are partially from the mini kit, partially from the full kit (that I haven't finished yet) and partly from other random places. I realized when making this that I really need to work on journal spots. I haven't made many of my own yet.

Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!
Living in Germany has made me so much more aware of environmental concerns. Here we are required by law to recycle, and the whole country is obsessed with conservation and taking care of the land. You aren't even supposed to wash your car with soap in your driveway! I really like this eco-savvy culture.
So how is digi-scrapping an eco-solution? Hello! Save a tree, go digi! Digital scrapbooking uses less paper, has no waste, is reusable, and has no danger to the environment. Well, if you're worried about the amount of energy your computer is using, just remember to turn off the monitor when you aren't using it and put a plant next to it to absorb the CO2. :)
I got so inspired by the Earth Day colors that I just had to make this little kit!

Of course I couldn't stop with a mini. The full kit isn't finished yet, but it should be soon and it will be available in my stores.
One of my co-designers at DigiScrapShop also got inspired to make an Earth Day mini freebie! I think her "word art" paper is really cool! And notice, we both used the same earth as an embellishment!

Check back tomorrow to see what I did with the kit and a sneak peek at some of the fun things that will be included in the full kit. As always, leave me some love, and happy scrappin!

Summersault

Summersault is my latest kit uploaded to the store. I had so much fun making this kit. The color palette is so soft and sweet! I also got to use my tablet a lot for the doodly floral bits. And the wood objects are made using overlays I made from all the wood objects all over my house. Actually, a lot of the objects in this kit are things I took pictures of! I'm just so pleased with this kit; it makes me giddy! I hope you'll be giddy with this fun little quick page. Click the photo below to download. And leave me some love!!!

Summer Pears Freebie

I thought I would start off the new blog on the right foot by giving something away! This is my very first kit, so be nice! My inspiration came from a silly box of Kleenex, of all things! And this was before I had decided on a "designer" name, so that's why it says "Kelly's Korner." ANYWAY, if you download it be sure and leave me some love (a comment)!!! Click here to download.

Hi!

Welcome to my new Design blog. I'm just getting started with designing digital scrapbooking supplies. I've been digi scrapping since summer 2008, and doing graphic arts off and on for the last twelve years or so. I'm really excited to start sharing my projects with you, and I hope you'll stop by again soon when I get some posts up. Happy Scrapping!
