I finally have the courage…

Well, I’ve been talking and talking about my hope to one day design digital kits. When I teach my classes at My Creative Classroom, I am always looking for kits that are neutral and free for my students to download. I hate having them download anything without running it by the designer first. I like the designers to know what I do and what we are using their kits for…it always makes me feel better knowing I have their approval. Anyway, after many, many hours of thinking and brainstorming and practicing and frustration, I finally have the courage to reveal some of my first kit. I have tons of practice stuff I’ve done, but this is the first I’m actually going ‘public’ with! So, here it is…a preview of just the papers. I still have to work on embellishments to go with these…

You can’t really see a lot of the detail, but the solid colors have a tweed look and also a grungy look. Once I am done, I’ll post better pictures of it all.

Since I’ve been at the lakehouse this summer, it’s given me time to work on these and my photography. I have been working on using that zoom lens…it’s not easy. It’s heavy and makes my hands and arms shake when I use it. I have to literally rest it on my legs or something else while I’m taking pictures. Here’s a couple of shots I’ve gotten using it…


Mikaela loves canoeing with her dad…she even knows what to do with the oars!

These are all photos that I ran some fun actions on of my girl! I love using actions on my photos…you can make them look so different with the click of a mouse!

I’ll be back soon to post the rest of my Fall Kit! Stay tuned…
