Annual Next Designer Competition 2016

Every year, theStudio has an Annual Next Designer Competition. In 2012, not knowing any better, I entered it and, while I didn’t win, it was the start of a new career for me. In years since, I’ve tried my best to “play along” … and this year is no exception even though I really didn’t have the time (busy schedule, as in wedding, and I have a cold *whine*).

The first week’s challenge was designing a pack of papers and this week’s challenge was to design some elements to go along with them. You need to go to my gallery pages at theStudio to download them (just click on the previews below) and, while you’re there, take a look at all the wonderful entries that you can download for free through the end of the month. BUT, before you go, be sure to read to the end of my post for the conclusion of this story and a freebie.

Now for my story. Not soon after I posted the elements, I had someone comment on the fact that there wasn’t a chair. Who else but my good friend Nancy would say something like this and sure enough, it was her. Nancy was my first official CT member and I’ve known her for YEARS. Her favorite thing to find in a kit is a chair or something to sit on. She will then do one of her great extractions and “sit” on the chair. Well, I couldn’t disappoint Nancy … what would I do without her. So, to go with my papers and elements is a chair that you can download by clicking on the preview below.

Are you happy now, Nancy??? HUGS!!!

  2. Too cute, thank you for your effort. I really like your elements.

  3. LOL That’s neat about the chair! Until I read why, I thought maybe it was a requirement for the challenge. LOL It is a very nice chair to go with an even more awesome kit!!! Thank you so much!

  4. Thanks a lot

  5. This is so sweet and filled with the greatest admiration to you and Nancy. I am with Steph whenever I see a chair in your designs, Nancy will instantly come to mind. I can’t do extractions because of my Ataxia, but I know that Nancy will hold up my end, My thanks and love to the both of you. You have definitely made my day. Hugs, 🙂

  6. Thanks for creating & sharing a chair … at first, I had no idea why Nancy was looking for a chair as I didn’t see one mentioned in your description. Thanks for the sharing the story … I will be on the lookout for Nancy in your chairs! 🙂

  7. The chair controversy has been going back and forth between us for years, but now you all know why I try to add a chair, or bench or something one can sit on into my kits (it doesn’t always happen, but I try). It’s all Nancy’s fault … LOVE you Nancy!!!

  8. cute 🙂
