My Designing Plans For The Next Two Weeks

It is the beginning of the Easter holidays here in the UK. This means I have my daughter at home for 2 weeks. We had lots planned but then she went and broke her arm at school on the last day!!! So we've had to cancel a lot of things. This also means that we've travelled back in time and she is more dependent on me.

So, what does this mean for my designing over the next 2 weeks?

Well, I shall continue to get up at 5.30am and design until hubby and daughter wake at 7am. However, I don't think I shall get much done in the day. Hopefully I shall be able to do a couple of new packs this week. I have some that are almost ready to launch also.

What are your plans for the Easter break?

*New Design* - Patterns Digital Paper Packs "CANDY GIRL"

I was so in love with the colour palette that I used on the Easter papers that I just had to come up with another pack using them. I couldn't make up my mind what patterns to use, so the end result was a mixed pattern pack. Makes sense eh.

I am now doing each pack with and without texture. That keeps everyone happy. I hope. :-)

*New Design* - Easter Digital Paper Pack (textured)

I thought I would attempt my first themed paper pack. I know dots and stripes are themed but I mean a more specific theme. Here is my first attempt at an Easter pack. It has a paper texture to it. Do you think I should also offer this untextured?? Maybe I will, tomorrow.

New TEXTURED Striped Digital Paper Packs

As promised, I've converted the striped range into textured versions too. Don't forget, they are also available without texture. That way I keep the digital scrapbookers happy, and also every other kind of crafter! :-)

*New Design* - Striped Digital Paper Packs In Various Colours

I am seeing spots in my sleep now so thought I would try a new range of patterns. This pack includes 12 sheets of digital paper in a striped pattern. There are some triangles included which give it a bunting feel. I'm thinking about doing an elements pack to match including a bunting. What do you think to that idea?

Half Term Week Design Plans

It is half term where I live which means my 6 year old is running around and my computer is looking at me forlornly from across the room. I am at present writing this at 5.30am because it is the only time I can spend with it each day until she returns to school. This gives me just over an hour each morning which isn't a great deal of time. I'm spending that time on promoting the new store and outlining some designs.

I have decided to change tact a bit. I shall be uploading the designs in colour form instead of pattern form. I have a palette of 15 colours so far and they have all been done in a style with 12 varients. For example, Dots and Spots. There are 12 sheets of various dots and spots papers in one particular colour. I will do this each time with a new style which will mean in the end you can mix and match your packs knowing they all coordinate in pattern or colour. I'm not explaining this very well and I put that down to the fact its only 5.30am!!!!

I will update you tomorrow with a sneak preview........

*New Design* - Rose Beauty (pastels) Digital Paper Pack

I'm feeling romantic what with Valentines Day being around the corner. Sick bucket anyone? Well, I didn't want to go down the totally soppy route and go pink, pink, pink so instead I came up with the following design. It is in the pastels range so compliments the Tiny Flowers (pastels) Paper Pack. I thought highlighting the roses in black would make it gothic style? Anyway, here is the finished result.

*New Design* - Tiny Flowers (Pastels) Digital Scrapbooking Paper Pack

I fell in love with these little flowers so had to turn them into a paper pack. They are part of the Pastels Mix and Match range. It is the first pack in the range, so I'm afraid there isn't much mixing and matching that can be done yet! To view in more detail (or to purchase) please click here.
