Thread updated: Now this is the final list for the January CU Blog Train!

so make sure to update your links and add your parts in this thread.

Let's get this train moving everyone.

For each train, you will make between 1 to 3 CU element/paper templates (no more) which you will giveaway on your blog or here if you do not have a blog on January 15th. Your freebie needs to be available for minimum 2 weeks.

For this blog train, you make pattern paper templates. They can be 1 or multiple layers. These have to be Commercial Use allowed.

For each train, we will use this palette so everything looks consistent.

On January 13th, I will post a make this post into the final list.

You can find the Pixel Scrapper Preview if you need it here: https://www.digitalscrapbook.com/marisa-lerin/designs/pixel-scrapper-preview-package-template-paper just download it add your logo and name and you are set.

I'll sign up. I can't believe that it is almost 2017!

I agree! It's crazy how fast the year passed!

I'll give it a try! smiley

Mmm, pattern papers... nice theme, Ania! I'll certainly make some for this. smiley

I made some modifications to the basic preview template for my use, and I've put it up on my webspace if any of you would like to use it. It's not perfect, but I like having the CU-patterned background and flag to make it more clear. Just click the image to download if you want.

That's wonderful! Is this something like what you want for Jan?

here's my last one. let me know if these are what you would like!

Thank you, Holly! The preview template looks awesome.

Looking great Alli. Love your papers, nice job.

thank you!

Mine will be available on my blog for January 15th. I'll be including both the PSD and AI versions in the download.

Wow Holly! Your patterns are gorgeous!

I just finished mine. I will have them on my website on the 15th just like Holly. These are .psd layered, png, and jpeg so you can play around with them. Enjoy!! A BEAUTIFUL MESS!


Great patterns, Sharon--looks like we'll have a train of amped-up basics that will be a great addition to any designer's template stash!

Thank you, Holly! I only know how to create basic patterns. Yours don't seem so basic and they are truly beautiful!!

those are awesome! i am not sure my fit the requirements tho....

Hi Alli, of course yours fit the requirements. As long as they are CU, and one could use yours as overlays. They are really pretty.

Oh ok! smiley Thanks!

Ok, I think I'm going to keep working on this stuff before submitting anything, but thanks for the comments and help!

Improving on your craft is no different then the other designers. We are always improving on our crafts~


Thank you Holly, for the CU template. I went with Native American patterns for my papers this week, to honor my Grandmother. These will be available on my blog on January 15th.

Oh wow Faith, your papers are wonderful!

No need to thank me for sharing my update of the preview template--it's just a letter pattern over the basic Pixel Scrapper one plus a little CU blog train banner... I just like having that CU background to help differentiate it and figured it might be something others liked to give a consistent appearance to the train. smiley

Holly, it is a great idea with the preview. Thank you for sharing it with everyone.

Ladies all your pattern paper templates are gorgeous! You all are doing such a good job.

Ali, your papers could be used as overlays for sure. They look great. I can't wait to see what you decide to post.

see my contribution and links in #32

So very nice, Dawn!

I just re-read the initial criteria. Are these suppose to be ready-to-use papers or are they suppose to be layered templates?
