Jan 2019 Blog Train - Working

After making everyone vote on all the palettes I decided to go ahead and use all of them. The palettes seemed to have a good variety of colors, and they all received a good amount of votes, so why not!

The January 2019 blog train is Science Fiction!

I'm so happy this got picked! smiley smiley

I would be very happy to get any ideas and suggestions for this theme!
When I think Sci-Fi I think of the shows my mom watched when I was a kid: X-Files, StarTrek, Twilight Zone, etc.. So, murder mysteries, people in space, and time travel? Would robots work? Lol

I really don't prefer doing general kits for the themes (though I think a general kit is better than nothing), I want to play along! I just lack the creative juices sometimes (often smiley). Any guidance would be much appreciated smiley

Kayl, you have many ideas! You can make a kit relating to movies, with cinema stuff, for instance, it will be very nice and usefull to make a Cinema-like kit or a stay-at-home kit with TV, pop-corn... I hope it helps!

Thank you, Sonia! That helps smiley

Kayl, I think Sonia's idea of a sci-fi movie cinema-like kit sounds like fun ! You could find some old sci-fi movie posters and things like that, the choices would be endless.

For myself, I'm going all out Star Trek on this one... yes, I'm a Trekkie nerd (although I can't speak Klingon) since I was a kid back in the stone age. Beam me up Scotty!


Kayl: I think robots would be great for sci fi!

Kayl - your mom watched the best shows!!

in case this gives you any ideas, I'll share my scrapbook pages that have sci-fi themes:

- ROAD TRIPS to sci-fi related places (like Roswell, NM)
- VACATIONS to sci-fi conventions (like Las Vegas; and there's even a cruise)
- THEME PARK visits (and all that is associated with that)
- BOOKSTORE signings to get autographs (books, sharpie pen, photos, selfies)
- TALKS or appearances by authors or actors (on a stage, in a theater)

wow, i'm a geek

and so in my scrapbooks, my sci-fi-related pages have travel, food, and other general elements on them too

Kayl- I'm not a designer, but I am a proud geek. smiley So yes, robots would work! You could also do a more general space-themed set, like with planets and galaxy-looking papers, or go for a kind of vintage/steampunk spin on it to pay homage to some of the really classic original sci-fi books (think H.G. Wells and the like.) I hope that helps!

I'm super excited this theme got picked, by the way. smiley

Thank you all for the suggestions and ideas! I've been toying with the idea of making a robot kit for awhile and I like this palette for it! I also really like the space idea... and the movie night in idea.. Maybe there will be more than one kit! Who knows!

This is what I am working on. Some cute little hand drawn aliens. I think these fit into the theme.

Seems you and I are going in the same direction, Robin smiley I am doing a different style though. Very cute!

Thank you Kayl. They were fun to do. I got a few chuckles over them.

Hehe... If we ever get invaded by aliens Robin, I hope we get invaded by those adorable little guys.

Your creative abilities never cease to put a big smile on my face.


I love those aliens Robin! smiley I'm working on this kit too and I couldn't decide what to do, aliens or robots, or galaxy's... I guess it will be a mixture of all of those.


Maddiesh, I'm loving these papers!

Robin, if I could ask, what program do you use to draw with? I beginning to look into that and I feel overwhelmed and don't know which one would work best.

And, by the way, like everyone else, your aliens are simply adorable and so otherworldly!

Dawn, I use Nova Developement's Photo Impact Pro13
I love this program and easy to navigate.

So cute Robin! And very cool Madeiesh!

I was thinking Steampunk as well, or should we save it for a future Blog Train theme?

smiley We can do one thing without leaving the other... I like Steampunk tho I never seem to have used it a lot in layouts .... Steampunk is arguably yesteryear's scifi? smiley

I guess I took a different route with this theme and got stuck on the legendary sci-i twilight zone and sci-fi movie. I had fun creating this months theme, and am still working on adding more, Here is what I have so far.

Amber, LOVE those film strips!

Thank you Lisel. smiley

I think Robots would be a perfect fit for these colors! Your papers are always bright and useful in many layouts!

Amber, I LOVE the Twilight Zone theme! smiley

I, being a literature teacher who is a dystopian society novel nut, will be focusing on SyFy book stuff! smiley

Thank you laurel. I'm a sci-fi fan, i think thats what pulled me towards my inspiration for this months theme. I am enjoying getting back into creating kits. Somtimes my imagination just keeps going & i can't stop adding more...lol
