Well, I did it.  I just finished uploading my kit for round 4 of The Studio's Next Designer Contest.  This round, we were able to pick our own inspiration photo and palette (from the photo).  I can't figure out how to get a direct link to the photo I used, so here's the link to the gallery and I'll tell you it's photo 67 (Moon Rise Over Cove Point at Night Under Stars).

So you can visit here to get the links to my kit.

Travel Much??

Well, round 3 was much more difficult (for me).  Here is the inspiration piece

We were also given a color palette

The challenge was to use the photo as an inspiration piece (don't forget about the moon), and as many colors as we wanted from the palette.  We also had to choose 1 additional color to add to the palette and we weren't allowed to use any CU tools aside from what we received in the prize from Round 2.
at least 10 papers, at least 3 solid
24 elements

So, I had held off telling my husband about the contest, but I had been so excited I made it to Round 3, that I told him then.  I showed him the new picture and he told me it made him feel like traveling the world.  So I thought and I thought and tried to figure out how I could tie that in to the moon.  I am always thinking about songs in my head and I my head kept jumping to the song "Somewhere Out There" from "An American Tail".  So I designed a kit with the line "it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky" to help direct my kit.  My kit is supposed to be that all over the world, we all share the same sky and that no matter where we go, we always have that same sky above us.

Like Fish?

Well, I made it to Round 2 in the Studio's Next Designer Contest.  Turns out each round has a common theme; the moon.  This week we were given a photograph to be inspired by and to create our own palettes. 
Looking at this picture, I was taken by the red lighthouse and new I had to have that red in my kit.  I decided to go with a fishing theme.  And this is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy.  Please visit the link at the Studio do receive the links for downloading my full kit.

You can visit it here.

Hello out there!

(does it echo??)  Well, after the Roo shut it's doors, I literally didn't even turn my PS on except to make monthly desktops for my computer.  The kids are back in school and I found that during the summer espeically, I was spending too much time on here.  So I took a long break...but what sucked me in was the Next Designer Contest at The Studio.  I wasn't going to enter, but then I hurriedly made an entry and turned it in with a few hours to spare last night.  We were given a picture with a color palette as inspiration.

And this is what I made

I'm pretty pleased with what came out.  Considering I only gave it a few hours over 2 days.  If you'd like to get the mini kit (and all the other ones too), you can visit my entry right here and then go through the whole gallery because there's 40+ mini kits that coordinate with mine.

Monday, July 9, 2012


The last few weeks have been a whirlwind, both personally and professionally.  Because of a sudden change of plans, the 'Roo will be closing it's doors on 7/15.  It all happened quite suddenly.  I am sad, but lifted a bit as I've been starting to try to figure out how I need to start handling all of my responsibilities.  So for the time being, I am not store hunting, but I will continue to design and post things here on my blog and on my FB page.  Also, before the store closes, I am holding a massive sale.

I hope you'll come check it and all the other designers' sales out.  I hope you'll continue to visit my blog and FB pages and I will continue to support you as I can with your digital scrapbooking wants.

Hello!!  Well, in keeping on schedule, this week I have another new product for you

simple enough to see, it's just a new creative, and customizable, way to date your layouts.

Also, I've decided to put some of my products on notice, as they are being retired at teh end of the month.

And, if you're reading this, be sure to use code BLOGRETIRE12 to get an additional 10% off of any purchase in my store (which is also good on these retiring products *hint, hint*).  So go shopping a while.

Well, here is the full kit to coordinate with the add-on that I released last week. 

My Prince by Key of D Designs at Digiridoo Scraps

Do you like it?  I really like how it turned out with the great colors and elements.  Here's some examples...

and here's an example from Roxana using only the add-on (and a soon to be released date pack)

and Roxana was also kind enough to create this freebie frame cluster for you to use in your layouts...

My Prince

So, this month at MouseScrappers I'm hosting the kit challenge.  Do you want to take a peek?  And this great mini add-on is now for sale in my store at Digiridoo Scraps.

We've all been busy so far this summer, so no examples, but they'll be coming soon.  (And just think...if there's an add-on, there is a full kit coming too!!)

Happy Holiday!!

So it's Memorial Day weekend for me.  And the weekend is packed, so I'm going to make this short, sweet, and quick.  This week, I'm selling some notecards that are perfect for your Project 365 layouts.  They have been created in standard sizes so you can print them out, or just use them digitally.  

Take Note by Key of D Designs at Digiridoo Scraps

Now, maybe you're saying, I love it, but it doesn't match any kits...well, they were made to coordinate with DRS' March 2012 Mega Kit Simple Pleasures, so if you're needing to buy something that matches...there's that.  But they are all versatile and can be used in different kits and can even be recolored with some playing around.

Have a great holiday!!

Are you going to be making lazy summer day layouts?

What screams summer days are here more than anything else?  Faded, chippy, white washed wood.  At least I think so, and I made this alpha set that will help you add a little more summer to your layouts.

And here's some eye candy from my CT ladies

May Take Your Pick

Hello!  Hello!!  This month marks the next installment of the Take Your Pick fun.  Every other month designers at Digiridoo work together to coordinate products on one color scheme.  Then you get to shop the store and *take your pick* of all the wonderful goodies they've created.  This month the color scheme was bold and bright.  And, I've had a few things pop up so I didn't get to do as much as I had wanted, but I did get one product made for you.

Mom's the Word by Key of D Designs

now, are you on my newsletter feed?  Because if you aren't you're gonna wanna, because in just a short time my newsletter is coming out with a newsletter exclusive coupon code just to help kick off iNSD.  And if the SALE at the 'roo goes live while my coupon code is active, you'll get an even BIGGER discount...I'm just sayin'.  So, get out there and have some fun this weekend, and check back because (I hope) to put some more codes out there throughout the weekend.

Spring Polka and iNSD

Well, spring is definitely here and we've been having temperatures all over the place.  Last week it was so hot the kids wore shorts to school all week; and then Monday hit and it was flurrying.  But, to welcome spring, I made a delightfully cheerful alpha for all of your delightfully cheery layouts.
