Northern Lights, a Christmas scrapkit

6 12 2012

This has been a busy year for the artists at PSP Tubes Stop and we have worked together in our last scrapkit of the year, let me introduce you to a lovely Holidays scrapkit with a mild and serene palette in lilac, lavender and blue.

Northern Lights scrapkit

Northern Lights scrapkit

This is a collaborative effort by Jenny Heidewald, Lynn Chua, Joanna Bromley, Lisa Cree and me 🙂 This Scrapkit comes with 65 Objects, 23 frames, and 17 backgrounds. That is huge!!

With this, we say goodbye to a lovely year of working together and hard, and we will now take a little break to be with our families, but expect more for next year! The kits kept getting better as this year went by, so I expect a lot of great quality products soon to come!

Oh, and since you are at it, my joyful penguins were made specifically to fit this palette, so purchasing both the kit and the penguins tube would make for a delightful tag!

Joyful Penguins, tubed.





Halloween Kit: Nevermore

27 09 2012

At PSP Tube Stop we are always thinking of ways to give the best to our costumers. Lisa was thinking and squeezing her brains screaming “Enough of orange and purple! This is supposed to be a ‘scary’ thing!” when she came up with a Gothic theme for this Halloween’s kit. The palette was inspired on this piece:

By W.D. Noble

So off we went to work on this creepy scrapkit including tombs, witches, Gothic frames, creepy trees and scary backgrounds.

As an anecdote, this time around Lisa was going through some difficult times so she trusted me the honor of taking care of this one. I have to say I have a new found respect for Lisa’s work, it is difficult, time consuming and mentally taxing to be the person in charge of coordinating artists, editing their work, tubing, changing colors and pushing to meet the deadline in a nice manner. She is an awesome person for many reasons, and now I get a glimpse into what a hard worker she is, given that she is the one taking care of all this in a regular fashion. Lisa, you are wonderful!

And so, without further ado I’ll leave you with this beautiful scrapkit:

Nevermore.

 

This scrapkit comes with 15 backgrounds, 13 frames, and 37 objects. Contributing artists are Constanza Ehrenhaus, Katerina Koukiotis, Jenny Heidewald and Lisa Cree.





New scrapkit: religious Easter.

27 03 2012

Katerina, Lisa and I thought it would be a good idea to put together a religious themed Easter/Pesach kit for those people who enjoy the religious and spiritual meaning of this season. So here it is! I can say that it was a very nice experience to work on it, and I think Katerina will agree, I enjoyed researching for options to include. I hope I did justice to the Pesach elements! This scrapkit comes with 12 Backgrounds, 24 Elements and 5 frames. Lisa did a beautiful job with the backgrounds, they are simple and peaceful, so fitting for this season!

St. Patrick’s day collaborative scrapkit

23 02 2012

Because we considered our Valentine’s day Scrapkit a great success and we had a lot of fun doing it, the artists over PSPTubesStop decided that we wanted to go ahead and work on another kit for St. Patrick’s day: Over the Rainbow. The theme is quite evident and we just went ahead and worked hard on getting out a lovely one! It is so cheerful! The preview alone will make you smile! As you might already know I have a big love for Celtic knots and I took upon the task of working mostly on several frames, Lisa made a bunch of backgrounds, Mitzi worked on a lot of elements, Joana gave us two lovely leprechauns. and we all also helped with quality proof and edition.

Contributing artists are Joanna Bromley, Mitzi Sato Wiuff, Lisa Cree and me. The scrapkit includes 68 Elements, 14 Frames, and 16 Papers, not all elements are shown in the preview, and the price is silly cheap.

We also wanted to give a try to our “when artists make tubes” project and I put this one together using the scrapkit and an image of mine.

St. Patrick's scrapkit put together by me. I never claimed to be good at this! 🙂

Enjoy your scrapbooking and tubing! And remember to enjoy St. Patrick’s responsibly!





A Weekend in Paris: collaborative scrapkit

28 01 2012

Toulouse-Lautrec's ouvre was the inspiration for this kit.

Last week Lisa Cree approached the artists at PSP TubeStop and asked who wanted to work in a collaborative effort to make a scrapkit, the deadline was tight, but we needed to get it done in time for Valentine’s. I decided to give it a try, I had never worked on making elements and I really wanted to be part of this. The theme was “A Weekend in Paris” and the palette, elements and style were inspired by Toulouse-Lautrec’s oeuvre, especially those with a high red/yellow/black theme. So off we went and in less than a week this awesome kit was put together!

The kit was made by Joanna Bromley, Mitzi Sato Wiuff, Kim Turner, Katerina Koukiotis, Lisa Cree and me, and it includes 64 Elements, 25 Frames, and 15 Papers. It includes hats, corsets, black cats, the tour Eiffel, a table for two, and many other things that make a romantic and unique set, different from just bows and hearts. The kit is valued at $3.50 (not all elements are shown in the preview).

I feel honored to have worked together with such a wonderful and talented bunch of artists, their work rocks and raises the bar for my future efforts! I thought that making “elements”

would be easier than it was, and I have learned some things by working on this and seeing the work progresses of other artists. If I had to do it again, I would do a lot of things differently and I hope I have the chance to practice some more in the future.

In the meanwhile I have accepted the challenge to make a tube with this kit, just for the fun of it and to see how hard it really is to make tubes, which I have never done 🙂 The great thing of this kit is that it has so many elements and so different that you really could use it in itself to make a piece, no need to get a “main figure”!

If any of you does make a tube from this, me and the other artists would love to see it! Don’t forget that you can find us in Facebook too! You can always upload your work to the group for all of us to enjoy! 🙂
