Day 01: New Year, New Beginnings

Happy New Year everyone!

Today marks another day for making resolutions. Although I am not making any as I find myself not doing it anyway. Haha. I was challenged by my husband, though, to make a daily post for one whole year. He got the idea after we watched the movie Julie and Julia where Julie was blogging for a year about Julia Child’s recipes. So, here I am, with Day 01 and hoping I would be able to keep up with it for the rest of the year 🙂

It is not always that January 1st falls on a Sunday so I guess today is extra special. Well, for me and my family at least. We went to church and had a snack at our favorite coffee  house afterwards. How did you spend your first day of the year? I would love to hear from you. I might have something to give away too 🙂

Round 4: theStudio’s Next Designer Contest

This is it folks! The FINAL ROUND!

First off, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me for the three rounds and for everyone’s support and encouragement. It was an awesome and fun experience.

Things are a bit different for this final round. We were allowed to choose our own palette and theme and create a kit with a maximum of 10 papers and 40 elements.

Here’s a preview of what I made. I wanted to include a pack of alpha but I ran out of time.

Now, here’s the change I was telling you about. To be able to vote, you need to buy my kit for USD$1.00 from the store here. Each sale is counted as one vote. Top three designers will be chosen according to the number of sales they have on their kits. It is a good thing that all the sales, regardless of how much it is, will be given to us, designers, at the end of the voting process. The owner and her admin will choose a designer to have a 1 year contract to sell in their store. I really want to get that chance.

If you like what I made, please consider voting for me by buying my kit in the store here.

Thank you so much!

Round 3: theStudio Next Designer Contest

This is it! Round 3 votation is officially open. Thank you all for your support and helping me make it to this Round.

Only the top 10 designers are moving on to the FINAL Round. And I really want to be one of them. If you like what I made, please consider voting for me. It would mean a lot. Thank you.

We were given a choice on what we want to create for this round: a pack of borders, a pack of clusters, a pack of quickpages, a pack of alpha. I decided to make an alpha.

Here’s the preview:

Round 2: theStudio’s Next Designer Contest

I made it to Round 2! Woohoo! And I got 2nd place on Round 1, which meant I got an extra CU kit as a reward. How cool is that? Thank you to every one who voted for me.

For Round 2, we were tasked to create 30 unique elements and 10 recolored ones using the same palette.

Here is a preview of my entry:

theStudio’s Next Dext Designer Contest

It’s that time of the year again! And I am so excited.

theStudio is hosting their Annual Next Designer Contest and I signed up! I always get excited for this competition. It challenges me to create something new and out of my comfort zone. When I joined last year, it was a non-elimination contest so everyone was free to jump in whichever round they liked. This year, however, is an elimination type and only 30 participants will move on to the next round. There will be four rounds and the winner will be chosen from the top 10 participants who make it to the last round. Crossing my fingers I’d be one of them 🙂

We were given the same palette to work with for the entire contest. This round, we were required to create 5 patterned papers and 5 cardstocks.

Here’s my Round 1 entry:

The color palette speaks loudly of Autumn but I wanted to make something that can be used besides Autumn photos. We’ll see how this kit goes if we will be asked to do elements next.

If you like my papers, please vote for me here to move on to the next round. Thanks a bunch!

Link to download here on theStudio’s Gallery. Hurry, though, since the link will only stay active until October 31st.
