Interview with Skute Designs!!! + Freebie!

Well I wiggled one of the designers I CT for into an interview ^__^, Skute Design!, I'm 'sneaky' like that lol She's a very nice lady with a lot of ideas and pushes kits out faster then I can blink most days! Especially her new Christmas collection, MASSIVE comes to mind! Without further ado I present the interview! Oooh.. I made a rhyme!

1. How long have you been designing?

For 5 months right now. I made some word arts for my own use in former times but really "working" as Designer I started in June this year.

2. What is your current favorite kit?

By my own or from other designers?
my own I love my Golden Christmas and other designers *phew* I am shopaholic but I guess it is "Memories about" a collab by PrelestnayaP and Yalana.

3. What do you use for inspiration?

Oh everything around. Advertising, places, pictures, holidays, seasons ... inspiration is all around, you only have to train your eye for it.

4. If you could do a collab with someone, who would it be and why?

Good question I haven't thought about it before ... mhh let me think I guess MK, Natali or Sussie M. because I love their designs. Maybe I should ask them *lol*

5. What is your favorite part of designing?

Selling my stuff *lol*
... no I love to do word arts. You can express so much with words and a beautiful word art is an eye catcher on a beautiful creation.

6. How long does it normally take you to complete a kit?

This is different, it depends on the time I can spend on designing, if there are more other things in real life it took me longer to complete.
And when I have no ideas then it takes the longest.
But most time I spend about the preview.
A nice preview that makes the people wanna see more of the kit is very important and so I work on that some hours.

7. What program do you use in your creations?

PSP8 and PS/CS5 sometimes Artrage and PSE.

8. What is your favorite part of a kit to make?

Word arts, did I mentioned that I love Word arts, because I am a journaling scrapper.

I so totally agree with her about the word art thing, I LOVE word art..I just never have the moola to grab everything I want! Wait....that's not new lol But on another awesome note, check out this adorable mini kit freebie!!! Thank you for the interview Skute Design

I hope you enjoyed the interview, adore the freebie and come back for more!

Change of Tone + Freebie + Chance to win!!!

Okay so that's a lot of plus'! So first off, you can WIN this kit by leaving a comment
on this THREAD at DST! It's just that simple!! I've been using DST a lot lately and honestly... I LOVE it...which means a lot coming from me..since I do NOT like forums at all really! This one is just full of good stuff, including freebies, RAKS, chats and so on and so yes, I recommend this forum to even newbies! Right...I'm here for a reason lol, got side tracked ^__^

My latest and greatest! Change of Tone!!!! This kit has 82 elements, 16 papers & 1 alpha!
You know, uppercase, lowercase, numbers & extras -- I did not skimp! lol I had a good time making this kit, even though it took me about a month to get through it! I wanted to do some more papers ... so maybe I'll do an add on paper pack or something..who knows?!

I even made 2 layouts with this kit - and I don't know about other designers, but it is soooooo very hard for me to create pages using my own kits...I don't know why but it is. So when I manage to get something done I am just tickled beyond pink lol

Have I kept you long enough? I think so...I played around even MORE and ended up with some flaires to offer you guys & gals! I used a great set of styles by Josy Carson that came in the
Cu Collab Bag for this month @ DSD! I love those bags..LOADED and cheap! ... okay..hushing now.... ^__^

New CT work done! Sale & Upcoming Kit!

Am I loading this entry up or what? LOL Okay first off, I'm running a 25% off sale at my DSD store for the rest of the month! I plan on doing something for black friday, but I'm just not sure what it will be yet! Maybe a freebie...a big sale...a coupon or two? Who knows! :: winks ::
I just finished a new kit, which will be in the store very soon!, called Change of Tone!
I even got happy and made a layout with it, as you can see below!!

Ricky is 10 months old already...almost 11 months! I can't believe how fast they grow..especially when I wanted my baby to stay a baby for as long as possible :: sighs :: no more kids for me, 3 is good lol - I might not survive them all to be honest! I wouldn't trade them for anything though!!

I got my greedy hands on another kit by Mamrotka called Tales of My Childhood.
This kit is jam packed with all sorts of wicked cool elements - I really don't think
I did it justice with my pages, but I had a blast anyway!

Off to get some more work done! I will probably RAK my new kit in DST
so you better keep an eye out on the RAK section!!!

:: falls over! ::

Okay so I figured that things would SLOW DOWN after the holiday....well I was WRONG lol It's like everything went into over drive or something. Well the great news is..I got accepted to Mamrotka's CT! How totally cool is THAT? So far I've only done a handful of pages, but I'm working my way into it slowly! No harm in going slow darn it. So add my new CT, my designing block of grrrrrr, the kids, the NEXT holiday, Christmas creating, the huge store wide sale that's going to happen for iNDSD, plus the give aways and so on and so forth and WHEN am I supposed to do that again? lol Funny, yes I know. Have a look see at the pages I did though, I've been busy trying to get those creative juices flowing again...
