The Hungry JPEG December Bundle .. WOW..it’s HUGE

I was doing some blog catch up and ran across this at The Hungry Jpeg… WOW .. this set is gorgeous..and a HUGE discount. Not only is it jam packed with gorgeous fonts and images, it also comes with complete license for commercial use….at no extra cost ….something I know a lot of you will appreciate. I just love it when I run across a new crafty affiliate and  find something fun and new to not only use myself… but share with you all.



  • 58 different font files from 19 font families.
  • over 3700 graphics elements, compositions & patterns from 34 graphics packs.

I can’t even begin to show you how cool this bundle is…  but I am gonna try anyway and I really hope you go check it out..and the other bundles over at The Hungry Jpeg.

These bundles are packed with background papers, fonts, images and  in such a big variety of themes too.

One of my favorites in this bundle has to be the watercolored sets… OMG they are so gorgeous.

They show such a great selection of projects that this set can be used on too, so lot’s of inspiration if you are in need of some last minute Christmas decor or gift ideas.

Add on the fact they have  PAGES and PAGES  of freebies available as well as a weekly freebie deal…and this tagline they have on the freebies page made me laugh.

**Check the license  on the freebies.. I saw some that are personal license, but you can get a commerical license if required.

“Who doesn’t love a great freebie?! Download these awesome, free graphic design resources today. Your bank balance will appreciate it and you will love the goodies, we promise we won’t judge you for downloading them all!”

And then they also have a great $1 deal going on this month too..  Pages and Pages of $deals. This is a perfect time to buy for those of you that want to stock up on fonts and designs for next year’s projects.

January 2017 Artists Challenge

Ok…  let’s have some  fun with a new theme for our fab artists.  I was sat here thinking of a new theme and smelling Double Chocolate Chocolate muffins permeate the air. I get to work, while the boys get to make goodies… but dang it smells good lol.
Not that THAT has anything whatsoever with the theme I came up with..I just thought I would share.  I am actually prepping this post up early,since we all have so much going on over the Holidays… me included.

I hope they aren’t ALL for Santa Claus…..

Anywho… by the time this post goes live;  the holidays will be virtually over, the  presents will all be opened,  the tree will be looking a bit neked if it’s even still up.  Some of you will be nursing hangovers and memories of another fab New Year with friends and family.  The trees will be coming down soon, the lights packed away for another year and  2016 will be officially OVER.  So in honor of 2016, a fab year filled with some fantastic crafters and artists and designers.. and  a farewell to our blinky lights and glitter ornaments…

Here is our new theme inspired in part by the end of a year, the glam and the glitz of hollywood and a whole bunch of crazy ideas…. some of which I listed below for anyone needing inspiration.

“It’s a wrap”

 

Who could think It’s a wrap without thinking of Hollywood and  movie making..   leading ladies, hearththrobs, glamour and glitz.  The Awards season is upon us… if you needed any additional ideas, check out this list. Awards Season Calendar  Please someone  do the SAG awards lol… It’s just begging for some humorous old Hollywood Broad with saggy…. everythings. 

How  about Egyptian mummies? nothing like an ancient dead person to inspire a few age jokes.

….or if you like bandages but aren’t too keen on dead people… there is always the medical  .. get well images for broken bones, bumped heads etc.

Want some more humor… how about  the old weight loss wraps, perfect for all of those New Year Resolutions.. that most of us are NEVER gonna keep.

Wrap inspired keywords:

baby, candy, gift, nails, hair, hollywood, movies,end, finished, awards .. let’s see what you come up with.

RULES

  • Each artist may enter up to 10 individual NEW digital stamp images per given theme.
  • Images can go on sale as soon as they have been entered into the challenge.
  • You may add single images, or link to a blog post with up to 10 images..but each image must be entered in the challenge linky individually.

Another star studded line up from Gina Marie Designs

I’ve been a bit distracted lately catching up after the spotlight series… and it looks like they snuck in a whole new bunch of fab Gina Marie Designs dies !! I swear I was on there only a week or so ago… I am in soo much trouble lol.  Check out these new dual dot stitch stars coming out in August.
GMD_stars
As you may know we already have a giveaway underway with some of the fab new oceanic themed dies.. shells, anchor and coral… but have you seen the rest?  It’s crazy… just the beach/ocean theme alone is bountiful… and I didn’t even get the shark, or the sand dollar in the sneaky peek gallery below !

…some of these are already available, some are set for an August release.

and then I looked more… and I found  these beauties!  I  am seriously enamored by so many of these fab dies…. and at these prices…. I could shop for a week and still not get done *sigh

You will find these AND more in the NEW DIES section and don’t forget to  enter  the Gina Marie Giveaway to try and win a set of dies too 🙂

Kit & Clowder Blog

 

 

Where are you? 

Australia!

 

When did you first start drawing/designing seriously

Just over two years ago when I turned Kit and Clowder from just my blog to our online colouring class website. Well, I was probably taking it still seriously before then making many many design team cards but I never dreamed that I would be doing this now with our classes 🙂

 

If you were getting a tattoo… what would it be? 

I am so chicken! I would be like Phoebe in Friends where she went to get a tattoo and only got a dot before she pulled out hahaa! I don’t even know what I would get – a cat?

 

What was the first product you ever had for sale? 

Our Skin and Hair class although both the content and the format has changed drastically since the launch!

 

skinandhair


Who is your inspiration/muse?

My inspiration is everyone who forms Kit and Clowder. I would not be doing this if it weren’t for all of the Clowdies that are part of our group. When I am feeling down I know that I can feel inspired and uplifted by flicking through our Facebook Group and seeing everyone’s work, and also when people post non-craft related stuff. It makes me feel excited that people like to share their lives with us and makes me want to share back.

 

How many people work with/for you ?

Just me 🙂 But Jon, Mr Clowdie, is my sounding board behind the scenes. I also have some really close friends that I have met since doing this that I know I can discuss about any topic/run through any idea and they 100% support me and tell me if my ideas are bad! 🙂

 

Name your favorite cartoon?

Oh my… everything Disney? Does Pixar count as cartoon? If we are going movie I would say Wall-e.. but if it’s cartoon tv it is Pokemon

 

5a7e49_73e4e7d61af9469cb763b1dc8a4e0a22

 

 

 

 

If you suddenly changed careers and went to work at Disney…what character would you want to be?

ELSA! Or Anna! Or Belle! Or Cinderella! Or Rapunzel! Or Pin Manager!

 

 

 

Which decade do you think had the best music?

90s!!! Spice Girls! hahaaa!

 

What’s your favorite hobby when you want to relax

I like to read, sing, or play computer games with Jon 🙂

 

If you were reincarnated…who would you have been in a former life.

Cat – fluffy cat wanting lots of cuddles and food

 

When no one is listening…. do you sing in the shower?

I sing in the shower, not in the shower, and frequently get caught out by the postman.

kit_class

 

 

What is your most popular item in the store/shop? 

Our Skin and Hair Class

 

 

 

Who was your first celebrity crush…and have you drawn them? 

Probably Angel from Buffy hahaa! No I haven’t drawn him hahaa!

 

If you got locked in an elevator for 6 hours.. who would you most like to be locked in with ?

Joss Whedon and we would talk all things Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Avengers 🙂

 

What’s your favorite color?

It changes all the time! I like Purple and Aqua at the moment 🙂 But I really love all colours and having bright colours around makes me feel happy 🙂

 

5a7e49_c03823ba2d274ae8bef5d23664acbf30

 

 

 

Would you go cave diving with sharks?

Uh not this question!! I am currently being persuaded into this for our Honeymoon O_O Sharks are one of my big fears and I think if I saw a Great White I would pass out in the water. I would say no but I think if I don’t say yes I won’t be getting married haha.

 

 

 

What was your favorite subject in school…?

English – I wanted to be a writer and I looove reading

 

When was your last REAL vacation and where did you go?

Disneyland! We went last year while teaching our US Retreats and it was the BEST!

 

If you got offered a weekend in a haunted  house/castle etc.. would you say yes?

Yes but I would be so scared! hehe! It really intrigues me because I feel there are so many stories and encounters for there not to be some sort of truth?

 

When you get the midnight munchies… what do you grab?

I have a bad habit of getting the coffee/chai latte sachets and halving them so I can get more drinks to keep me full! So I have many many of those to try and stop me eating everything in the house. But I usually still do – biscuits and chocolate 🙁

 

What is your favorite piece in the whole store? nature

Our new Elements of Nature class – I think it is our most professional class and also flowers and nature are really forgiving for people to colour. Skin and Hair is our most popular class but the actually topic itself is much harder so I think sometimes it’s nice for people to take a break and colour some flowers for some great results 🙂 I also love our Monthly Colouring Class as I feel that it really challenges me to come up with the content and I see the best results in this class. I see people improve the quickest here as they are challenging themselves.

 

Favorite quote?

If you are not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you aren’t doing anything very innovative – Woody Allen

 

What’s your guilty pleasure ?

Disney. everything.

 

What  job did you have BEFORE you started  drawing/designing for a living?

Interior Architect

What’s your favorite event, or holiday of the year?

Christmas – I love getting presents for people and get so excited to give them 😀 I can’t sleep on Christmas eve.

 

 

 

 

How long does the average design/art work take from concept to final product?

Our Technique Classes take about 2-3 months of straight working on them from concept, writing the material, colouring samples, filming, editing, and putting the actual classroom and graphics together. It’s a really long process! It takes longer now than when I first started as I still do our one on one feedback daily which takes a few hours, plus our monthly class, and all of the admin work. So a Technique class probably takes about 4-5 months now.

 

What’s the one song guaranteed to have you shaking your booty anytime, anyplace ..anywhere?

So many! I love all Taylor Swift 🙂 And anything cheesy hehe

 

What do you love most about all the people you meet through your work?

I love how supportive everyone is. I feel that people go out of their way to help one another and to make me feel welcome in their lives. I feel that I don’t have customers but I have friends and I’m so lucky to have met so many of our members now and know that we have a real friendship. I feel extremely lucky.

This is a challenge for Digi Stamp Artists to play with new ideas, have some friendly competition and get the  creative juices flowing.  It’s a fun community art event which we hope will be a quarterly  occurrence.  It’s a new spin on the  old card challenge idea…  but now our favorite artists get to  play.

New artists are welcome too, if you are a new digi artist trying to get established and meet a fab group of established artists  and mentors, or an existing artist in need of some fresh fun ideas.  Come on in, the water is great.

“THEME: SHAKESPEARE – deadline midnight Central time August 31st, 2016

This is open to anything Shakespeare related….. characters, inspired by quotes, pretty much anything goes as long as it has something to do with Shakespeare.

If you want a cat with a beard and a ruffle and an ink pen…. that is totally ok…. Romeo and Juliet… fine.. midsummer’s night dream fairies… works for me.
A giraffe reading a book by Shakespeare.. stretching it a bit, but still ok ( giraffe, long neck, stretch.. bad joke ..ok I’ll stop now…).

 

Each artist may enter up to 5 separate  submissions based on the theme…ah what the hell let’s make it up to 10…. for those of you with nothing better to do LOL.

Please remember these artists involved  are fitting this in between regular projects and day to day business too…. and that these digi stamps can take hours or days to complete… so patience is needed.

So get your thinking caps on … let’s do this”

If anyone would like to participate in this artist challenge, but didn’t get an invite … you can PM me on Facebook, or send me an email.  All submissions  are held for approval, so please don’t worry if it takes a few hours for them to appear.  I  think I still have a life..???
