Its the weekend to celebrate the fun of digital scrapbooking and crafting. Its also the start of this quarter’s Digiscrap Parade. You can download my portion of the parade here.
If you would like to continue the parade from here, simply click the arrows. If you would rather go back to the main blog list, you can find the Digiscrap Parade Blog here.
As part of Digital Scrapbooking Day, The Digichick has some wonderful sales, activities and challenges (with prizes of course). Be sure to drop by the forum and join the fun.
There is also a $2 Chick Blitz section where you can get some amazing deals. I have 6 products in the Chick Blitz – in case you had an eye on any of them
Here are direct links to the $2 products:
Hope you enjoy the parade!
Why does it seem like time speeds up as soon as October gets here? I can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner, but it is!

I created this new Christmas Labels Bundle to help me get ready for all the holiday gift giving. Hopefully it can help you too.
The set includes Photoshop templates, digital cutting files and a series of 92 different stamps that coordinate with the tags. The stamps are in both PNG format and as a Photoshop brush set.

I tried to create a variety of styles, designs and topics to meet all the needs: gift tags, packaging for homemade baked goods, greeting card sentiments or even focal images for cards.
It is very easy to alter the colors and designs using the templates and stamps together. If you would like some tutorials, I have a couple on my you-tube channel:

Its Digital Scrapbooking weekend, so everything at the Digichick is 40% off – including this new set. We also have a bunch of fun activities, so stop on by the forum. We would love to meet you!
I have a new digital kit release this week called Hearts and Flowers.
I had a lot of fun combining water color paint effects with newsprint. And sketching up some flowers and birds to go with it. I know I have a thing for flowers, but I think I also have a fascination with birds.
(Although one of my friends got 2 love birds for her daughter – yikes! What a mess. I think I’ll just admire the wild birds)
This kit is on sale for 30% off through Sunday.
The Digichick Creative Team made some lovely layouts. Those ladies are so talented!
I also had a request to create a gift box that would hold 4 of those K-cup coffee packs that are used with Keurig single serve coffee makers. So I created a cutting file for it:
I wanted it to be useful for things other things also – so the K-cup insert is optional and I created 3 styles of lid and a couple of tags that can be mixed and matched. The Gift Box Cutting file is 30% off through Sunday also.
Speaking of coffee – One of my favorite things is having a cup of coffee while watching an on-line class. Have you tried them? I love them!
The Renee Pearson site has a new class up. Its all about embellishing digital pages taught by Tiffany Tillman. Fun huh?
Just wanted to let you know that its $5 off if you decide to join in by the 17th (Sunday – coming up quick!). You can find the details here.
Today is our last day!
In today’s lesson, we’ll take a look at the custom shape tool and create a card using one of the shapes.
In this first video, we’ll take a look at the custom shape tool and some ways to use it. We’ll also create our heart shapes for our card.

Welcome to our last week of class.
Today we will be taking a look at the brush and eraser tools and exploring a few ways you can use them on your hybrid cards.
For this week, I’ve created a collection of brushes for you to play with. I’ve also created another simple template. You can download this week’s supplies here.
In this first video we will take a look at how to load your new brushes. We’ll also explore how the brush and eraser tools work.

You can find additional brushes in many digital scrapbooking kits and there are many ways to use them. Some make it easy to add interest to your papers or provide focal images:
And some are useful for adding a little grunge.
All of them are very fun to play with by changing the scale, rotation and color.
