Design Factor Wk 1 - Free Mini Kit!

My poor little blog is looking a little neglected in his Christmas gear... in a few days time I could pretend it was on purpose for a "Christmas in July" special lol.

Anyway, ignoring the state of my blog, I have a fun mini kit freebie for you today! I am taking part in the Design Factor design challenge over at Digi Scrap Connect along with about 90 other designers! Each week, all participants will be creating a mini kit based on the challenge theme/scheme/details and each week you can grab them all for free! They will only be available for free for a limited time so be sure to grab them whilst you can!

This week was the first week and our task was to create a mini based on a Summer theme without using any Commercial Use products (with some minor exceptions) and focus on some layered elements. I decided to go with a Popsicle theme. I love the bright colors and I had some ideas for fun elements so that's what I went with :) Here is what I came up with. I didn't use any CU products that I hadn't created myself except for a distressed edge action by Atomic Cupcake to give the torn out look to the edges of the paper elements.

Once I started, I fell in love with the theme and color scheme so I will be releasing a co-ordinating kit in the near future, so if you like the look of this mini, keep an eye out for my new kit :)

If you instead like the look of the popsicle elements, I have a CU pack of Popsicle templates (with the doodled layer as well) available in my store for just $3. (Tip - there is a coupon included in the mini kit download that will give you a generous discount on any of my products).

You can find the CU Popsicle Templates in my store HERE

Be sure to upload any layouts that you create using the mini to the Scrapping Fairytales gallery so I can leave you some love.
