Cutiepie Misfits Grand Opening! and Freebie

Well, my daughter finally opened her little shop over at Etsy! – Cutiepie Misfits.  Here are the adorable amigurumi characters she crocheted and has listed in her shop:

And in honor of her shop opening, I made a digital kit featuring amigurumi she crocheted:

A QP Freebie is also included in the kit. And here are the downloads in three parts – Enjoy!

And please stop over and visit her Etsy shop Cutiepie Misfits! Thank you! 🙂

The Cow Jumped Over The Moon And Freebie

Well, here is the third kit I made for the DSS play along.  I won’t be uploading it to DSS as I did not follow the rules exactly :-).  Here is the photo I chose for my theme:

When I saw this photo, I imagined a cow jumping over a moon.  And, since I like that nursery rhyme, I decided to make a mini kit based on it.  And here it is:

And here is the download – Enjoy!

Zentangle Challenge #87 Pinwheels For Peace

September 21st marks the International Day of Peace.

And as the Diva set forth another Pinwheels For Peace Challenge, I decided to join in.  I think my efforts are more doodling rather then zentangling, but I had fun doing it :-). Here is a link to the one I did last year: Zentangle Challenge #40 Pinwheels For Peace 2011. And here is the one I did for this challenge:

Delft Blue Moon And Freebie

Well, here is the second play-along for the DSS challenge.  Again, it is moon themed.  We were allowed to add one additional color (and it’s different shades) – of course, I picked pink! Here is the  inspiration photo (courtesy Captain Kimo):

When I saw this photo, I thought of all the pretty blues, and Delft Blue came to mind.  Delft holds a special place in my heart, as the city that my DH and I met in grad school. The year we were there, they even had a blue moon! Thus, the name Delft Blue Moon :-).  I scanned and extracted tiles I had gotten back then.  I also found a vintage embroidery pattern of a little Dutch boy and girl that I colored digitally.  And here it is:

Here is the download, Enjoy!

I believe there is one more round to go. I’ll try to do it again, so check back in a week or so!

Moon Princess and Freebie

Well, I didn’t make the first round of  Digital Scrapbooking Studio Next Designer Challenge :-(, but decided to do the play-along thing since I had so much fun putting together a kit. So, here is my next kit, again moon themed per requirement.  Here is the inspiration photo, again from Captain Kimo:

This time, I made a kit based on a fairytale from my childhood, Kaguya Hime.  In short, it’s a story about a naughty moon princess who is sent down to earth to live with a kind woodcutter and his wife.  They live happily until she grows to become a beautiful young lady.  The Emperor falls in love with her, but in the end, her moon family takes her back to the moon.  Something like that :-).  Any way, here is the kit. Enjoy!

Digital Scrapbooking Studio Designer Challenge & Freebie

Digital Scrapbooking Studio is having their annual Next Designer Challenge.  And this year, I decided to participate.  The first round theme is “Moonrise”, with a given color palette to work with. Here is the inspiration photo by Captain Kimo:

When I was a little girl, I remember watching an old Doris Day movie titled “By The Light Of The Silvery Moon”.  I recall loving that movie and song, so that is what I based my kit on.  On the drive down to take our son back to college, I spent time sketching a bride & groom, wedding cake, and a crescent moon.  I extracted elements from photos I took, and added a few CU elements, and here is my kit:

Here is the link to download the kit.  It’s not a direct link, but will take you to the DSS Gallery where the download is.  While you’re there, check out some of the kits from other participating designers. You can download them too:
