SYTYCD Week 2 Freeeebie!

Well, my week 2 submission is up! The challenge was to make a Project 365 /everyday type kit.

I decided to further challenge myself and go 100% CU Free. I read *somewhere* (LOL) that some people were looking for CU Free kits to scrap with. It really got me thinking again about the fact that I used to not use CU when I started out, but then all these wonderful CU products started hitting the market and, well, honestly I got lazy.

Let me just say this: there is NOTHING wrong with using CU creatively. But, for ME, this is the right way to go. I feel a bigger sense of pride in my kits that don't include CU, everything in my kits will be totally unique to me only, and I do happen to like to sew and doodle and make textures anyways, so I might as well! I've also become more comfortable with extracting, but it's stil not my favorite way to spend an evening. LOL! However, this is the direction I plan to go with my kits from now on. I am not knocking those who use CU in ANY way, all I'm saying is this is what is right for ME.

PS: I hope PS filters aren't considered CU... LOL! I LOOOOVE my Alien Skin filters!

OK, enough babble, here it is!

You can snag it here!
MWAH for now!

All the best with the competitions :)

Hey Amy! I also decided to go CU Free about a week ago. Extractions are so hard! BUT I gotta agree, it's a whole different kind of pride when you look at the preview :)

BTW, I'm no longer designer under DigiScrapalicious, I've got a new blog too! http://crystallongbrake.blogspot.com

I think you make gorgeous and really fun kits- and unique. I've never noticed anything cookie cutter about you, miss Amy. I'm so glad to see you out of retirement... lol. I should have known you can't stay away. "Busy" must be your middle name.

Amy, your SYTYCD kits have been so fabulous!! I have left you messages at DSA, but wanted to come here to your blog and tell you personally how much I love your work. I feel so very fortunate to have a few of your designs. Since my job "layoff" I haven't been able to shop the way I normally would, so I really feel like I hit the digiscrap lottery!!!

Thank you for all you do! I was just over at digichick and you have a kit over there that I am dying to get my hands on!!!

I wish you so much success, you deserve it and I think you are simply mah-velous! :)

xoxo,
Candi
