Freebies *CU* Two Preview Templates

I made these for the upcoming Designer Contest at Ivy Scraps. These are for a mini kit but can be customized for more or less papers. Check out all the contest details in the forum HERE.
I want to help get our contestants off to a good start and make this contest as fun and worry free as possible. And I am hoping to encourage more to join us by posting them here. We already have a great group gathering and it's still early! Yay! Don't miss out on all the fun, learning and camaraderie.........

Preview Template 1 can be downloaded HERE

Preview Template 2 can be downloaded HERE

These are pretty basic templates. Clip papers to the template pieces and cluster or scatter your elements across the middle or around the edges. All the layers in the PSD file are labled. Change the text and font and eazy peazy done with your preview. Each download includes a layered PSD file with custom shadows and a folder of .png files for those who might need them. Please feel free to switch them up as you please. Credit in your TOU would be greatly appreciated. Hope you find these useful!!!!!

January 2011 Color Challenge At Ivy Scraps

Brand new color challenge is up at Ivy Scraps. I have had so much fun hosting this challenge the last few months! Can't believe how much I dreaded it at first LOL!

Here is this month's color palette

And this is the Freebie mini kit I created for the participants

Just join me in the challenge forum HERE

Use the mini kit or colors from the palette to create a layout to post in the gallery. Or create a mini kit of your own to share. It's a wonderful way to get started designing! If you're not sure how to start, just visit me in the forum. I am almost always around to answer any questions and am more than happy to help out a fellow scrapper or dabbling designer!!!
