I've been trying to design my own kits - I think it's challenging and fun. However, I wasn't ready to try to think up theme and colors as well as make papers and elements. I've joined the ScrapKit Challenge forum.
The theme for this month is Arctic Blast. I've been working on the papers, although they're overdue. I think I'm going to have to just finish soon and see what we have. So far, I've made felt, cardstock, and several patterned papers.
From the SKC forum's tutorials sites, I've found a great blog (Humbug Graphics Galore) with a lot of tutorials. I've been introduced to some new software - ArtRage and Alien Skin Eye Candy 6. I'm having a lot of fun designing
