Kit Spot Light- Water Get Away by MandyMade

Every Tuesday, here at the Gingerscraps blog, I ScrappyCocoa AKA Stephanie will be doing product and designer spot lights. This  week I wanted to spotlight one of my new favorite summer kits- Water Get Away by Mandy Made. This kit is SO FUN! It is seriously loaded, with 25 papers and 88 {yes I said 88 not a typo!} elements and 2 alphas! This kit is perfect for pretty much all your summer LO’s! It has the usual summer elements such as fish, a boat, and all other sea creatures- but wait there’s more! Mandy has many creative summer elements as well. Including a kayak, jet ski, floaties, a rubber pool, paddles, goggles, snorkel, flip flops and my personal favorite, a water gun! See what I mean? This kit can last you all summer long! In addition to the 25 patterned papers, she also has a fabulous pack of carstock available!  Just look at this preview!!! Check out this kit HERE

I asked Mandy a few questions about this fantastic kit! Here is what she had to say-

What was your inspiration, ie colors, all those fun ellies etc?

I get my inspiration in all kinds of places. I may have a set of photos that I want to scrap so i’ll pull a theme and colors from there. Sometimes I surf the net looking through travel, wedding and craft sites. I find I work well when I’m assigned a color palette and theme such as GS collabs… I love a good challenge!

How do you make a kit start to finish, papers or ellies first? Make a list of ideas?

Well I used to start with the papers only because I find them so darn easy and fun to create as I love texture! These days I’ve been creating my elements first. My last couple of products are a part of the Getaway Series. Each kit uses the same color palette and has unique themed elements. So I’m finding that I’ve been inspired to create the elements first to nail down a theme. I have found my facebook page to be quite an asset lately. {Find Mandy’s FB Page HERE} We chit chat back and forth with ideas for my new kits and my fans have a chance to win my kits for free. The one I’m working on now is a camping/fishing themed kit and I have a long list of themed elements to create! I haven’t even begun to think about papers! This might end up as a mega kit!

What do you design to? music tv peace and quiet?

I have to design to music or a movie. I have duel screens for my computer so I either have Yahoo’s coffee House station playing or watching one of my many movies for the 100th time. I need to close my door so I have peace and quiet, I then I fill the room with noise! Oh I also light incense and candles, dim the lights…. and munch on some sort of candy! Once all my senses are pleased I can get so much done! Wow what a Diva… only Mariah Carey has more Diva requests!

Well there you have it! Lets look at some great LO’s with this kit!

Like I said, I have already done 3 LO’s with this kit. But I am just going to show you my favorite. Like I said I loved the water gun and I so happened to have the perfect pictures! Everything in this LO is 100% Mandy Made. Including the template!

    I’m very interested in the Water Get Way kit that you have displayed here. Do you know of a way that I can still purchase it?
