Sundance made my heart dance...

I'm sure you don't need me to tell you about Designs by Krista ... a woman with a rare talent for both design and generosity ... and the other day she released a magnificent free kit called Sundance from her blog.


Well, I recently bought one of those lovely little chipboard bracket albums at Michaels craft store and I'd been dithering about what to do with it, particularly as I'm sans mojo at the moment. But when I saw this kit I just knew it was perfect for it. So I started by tracing the outline of the album on paper and then scanning it in (cause I had no idea how to make that shape otherwise lol!) and it was all plain sailing from there. I was so pleased with the results that I sent Krista the preview and she's very kindly posted them on her blog.

So if you fancy making your own bracket album (or dropping them onto larger layouts) you'll find the complete set of 8 here: Designs by Krista ...and if you scroll back a couple of days you might still be lucky enough to snag the kit itself. Don't forget to leave her some love!

If the links for the kit have expired by the time you read this, don't panic, Krista usually posts her freebies in her store within a week or so for about $1.50 - which is the next best thing to free in my opinion. You'll find the link to her store on the main blog page.


  1. Well aren't you just the cleverest chicky ever. They look sensational. See, this is the thing with you, you have an eye as to what looks good. And you don't even realise it !!!! Well if I can't see you scrapping again at the moment (mojo come back!!!!!) then at least I'm getting to see you create, which thrills me no end.

  2. glad to see that you haven't given up designing scrapbook stuff altogether. these are lovely and I just downloaded them.

    I never would have thought about something like this alone designing them. thanks for the great share and keep up the designing.

  3. wow sweetie! i just saw your QPs on krista's blog! outstanding!!! i used to CT for her. she is so lovely and generous. you should offer to do QPs for her (to give away or sell) in exchange for her kits. i bet she'd be thrilled! glad to see you using your creativity; it would be a shame to waste it!!!
