Happy New Year!
I know – a little late. I had a computer hard drive crash -It was a bit painful. But I have most of my stuff back and things are coming back together. (and the new computer is faster – yay!)
In my first post of the new year, I want to say thank you to everyone who has joined our little crafting community. You are all awesome!

I have a new kit out this week – Christmas Dreams.
Full digital kit with papers, elements and cutting files
I tried to repeat the mood and some of the motifs from the Christmas Labels stamps and cutting files so they would easily coordinate. So the kit can be used for hybrid projects:

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. Before we had a patch in the back yard, we used to go picking at a local farm called Linvilla Orchards. I think the berries cost more than if we just bought them – but the kids did get a hay wagon ride as part of the whole adventure. And of course they got to sneak a few berries during the picking!
Those memories were part of the inspiration for this digital scrapbooking kit.
It has hand drawn and painted berries and flowers. I also tried to add in a bit of an eyelet lace feel. The kit has 12 papers and 33 unique elements. To help with hybrid crafting, it contains digital cutting files for the mats, tags and all if the image elements.
As usual, the design team made some simply beautiful pages.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer so far.
I don’t do too much digital scrapbooking. I know I should do more and someday I’ll be sorry I didn’t but whenever I sit down to craft, I always end up making hybrid projects (greeting cards being my favorite). So I’m always a bit in awe (and maybe a bit jealous!) of the scrap pages the creative team makes.
I thought I’d share a few here made with the Garden Of Life kit and add-ons:
Another by Corrin:
My latest digital scrapbooking kit is “Garden of Life”. I really enjoyed making this one and I’m pretty pleased with how it came out. I think its my new favorite! It was inspired by the flowers on a vintage tablecloth.
The kit has 22 papers and 40 elements. All for the flowers used in the elements and on the papers were “painted” in Illustrator using the brush and the blob brush. I learned about this a while ago in Laura Colye’s Ink and Paint Illustrator class over at Renee Pearson. If you want to learn Illustrator, I can’t recommend Laura’s classes enough.
For all of you hybrid crafters, I also included digital cutting files for the stickers, mats and tags.
The creative team created so many delightful projects – I just have to share them!! But I’m thinking I might post them over the next few days so you don’t get too overwhelmed by the team’s talent.
Here are a couple:
Along with the main kit I created some add on packs.
I created a set of tone on tone damask papers,
Some additional patterned papers called Flour Sack Fabric papers.
