Designing again! Look at the pretties

I've been really nervous about this....

I used to design digital scrapbook kits. Back when they were first coming out. I designed with Scrapbook-elements for a long time and then moved on to designer digitals, with a break in the middle while I ran a different design business. Then I retired when I moved to the States and has another baby. I figured it was a good time to just focus all my energies on my young family.

Anyway, I was recently given the honor of being asked by the wonderful Stacy Carlson of Gotta Pixel to be guest designer for the month of October.

I thought, sure, it can't be that difficult, right? But man, it's been a while since I've done this and it was a lot harder than I remembered. I've stayed up late a whole bunch and ditched loads of ideas and things I worked on because it was just not looking right. The industry has changed so much in just a few short years, and it's been a real challenge for me to come up with 2 kits.

But eventually, I did. These are digital scrapbooking kits, containing things like papers, brush sets and little elements to help you make your own digital scrapbook layout. It's all downloadable, no physical papers or anything. I put a lot of work into these, and I'm satisfied to see them up for sale here .

This one is Tree hugger. Earthy tones, greens and browns, lots of eko friendly symbolism and word art phrases.

And scribble. A cutesy, pinky, girly kit with a kid's art theme. Also some chalked art background papers. This kit includes a quick page that you just slide your photos into and add text if you want and voila, an instant layout.

The kits only $3.50 each. Which won't break the bank. Buy here

If you buy the kit and make a layout, please send me the link. I'd love to post your layout on here, and throw in something free for you. I'm not sure what yet, but something digital scrapbooky.

I'm also working on a couple of cute things for their Gotta Grab it October sale, which is well worth getting in on. Watch this space.

Anyway, this has been exciting and fun, thank you Stacy for the opportunity.

These look gorgeous but I'll have to put my hand up to not having much a scooby about digital scrapbooking. I have seen the end results but when it comes to designing is that all original artwork and textures you've created? If so that's a helluva work for $3.50! (and I'm in awe!)

Oh niecey, they are fantastic and it's so cool to see you designing again. Yay! I think it's also a good thing to have something that's "yours". Your time, so to speak, even in a busy, bustling household of babies, toddlers and children! ;) Looking forward to seeing whats next! x

Wow. I am sooo impressed. You are probably the most artistic person I know. And that's saying a lot. You with your mad photomama skillz and you're designer self...

Geesh. I just love it :)

These look adorable - I love the idea of scrapbooking but I don't know where to start! Which is a shame cos it's such a sweet way of recording memorable events too.
