Autumnal Mist - SAS September Color Challenge

I really liked the colors for the SAS Color Challenge this month and decided to go ahead and make another small kit. This one has 6 papers and 15 elements. There are a cluster frame, a wrapped frame, 2 extracted flowers, a paper flower, a bow flower, a bead dangle, two tags, a bead scatter, a strip of ric-rac, a ribbon, a ribbon with flowers, a stitch flourish, and a staple. As always, I have really tried to minimize the use of CU items, however, the stitched flourish was based on a dingbat font. Other than that, it was all made by me in PSP XII, using the native capability as well as some photoshop filters. The real flowers, leaf and berry stem were extracted from my own photos. Below you can see a preview.

Here are the download links:

And here is a closeup so you can see some of the details better.


Enjoy the kit!!

Grungy Girl Graffiti Freebie

I have a new freebie mini-kit. This one is called Grungy Graffiti Girl and was created for the September RAK Member Mega Challenge at RAKScraps. The color palette and the graffiti theme were supplied by RAK. To me, the color palette seemed kind of feminine, so I tried to create a kit that incorporated a little urban blight, along with leather, lace and bling. The kit has 6 papers and 12 elements: 2 leather-look frames, trash can and lid, wire mesh, a lace ribbon, a lace flower, 3 charms, a dangle, a staple, and a grungy journal pad. The papers and elements were created by me in PSP XII. The preview and a close-up are below:

I have the download links for this kit below. You can choose to download from mediafire or 4shared.

New Blog

Hi and welcome to my new blog. This is actually the first post to this blog as the ones listed previously were imported from my older blog. I have started this new one because the last few months I have been using the design name of  "designs by jmdt" for the free kits and element packs that I have been offering. I have been thinking that it would make more sense for my design name and blog name to match, so I have started this new blog. At this point, it's still looking pretty plain, but over the next couple of weeks I plan to dress it up and add in more gadgets. Hope you enjoy my freebies and will continue to visit my new blog!!

Kit for SAS Birthday Bash

Over at Stone Accents Studio they are celebrating their birthday -- I think it's their second birthday. They are having a lot of games and challenges and also a big contest for new designers. I did not join in the contest, but the ladies that have are posting some awesome mini-kits. You can go on over to the gallery at SAS and check them out and snag them for free.

In addition to the designer contest, they are having a Member's Mega Kit challenge. I decided to make a mini-kit for that. So far there aren't many contributions to the Member's Mega Kit, but I expect more people will contribute as the month goes on.

If you would like my mini-kit, download here. Sorry - freebie retired.

Hope you like it and don't forget that you can hop over to SAS for lots more goodies!
