Taking a Stroll…


I took a stroll around the digi world to see what the latest and greatest products were. And here are just some of the wonderful things I found! (all images are clickable)


BABY O’ MINE – Girl by Melissa Bennett at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I love the soft and shabby feel of the papers. Seem so warm and cozy…just like a new little baby. Available in a boy set as well!


WAITING FOR THE RAIN ALPHA by Shawna Clingerman at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I just love the look of acrylic and this set seems extra “thick” and chunky. LOVE it!


HUGS AND KISSES set by Gina Marie Huff at Weeds and Wildflowers. These papers are just so yummy and versatile. You can use them on so much more than just “lovey” pages!


TEMPLATE PACK 2 by Kaye Winiecki at The Lilypad. I just LOVE this set of templates. They are fun and fresh and the colors (while I know you won’t see them on the final page!) make me happy.


LUV SONG alpha by CD Muckosky at The Lilypad. CD made it. I want it. Enough said.


You can’t miss a FREE kit by Shabby Princess, now can you?


This set of WHIMSICAL BUTTONS by Kasia Designs at Shabby Picke Designs is SO SO SOOOO cute!


EVERYDAY BLISS by Vera Lim at Shabby Pickle Designs. I just LOVE this kit. Isn’t that set of hanging laundry just the CUTEST THING EVER?? If you purchase before March 9, you get this free set of quick pages, too!



I am always looking for new and fun ways to date my pages. These GRUNGY MONTH BRUSHES by Michelle Coleman at Little Dreamer Designs are great!


All of the printables by Kelleigh Ratzlaff at Jen Wilson Designs are so, so, SO fun. This set includes a fancy bag, hexagon box, and puff box!


Jen Wilson ROCKED with these Date Tickets. I LOVE them!


These ADD IT UP STAMPS by Audrey Neal at We Are Storytellers are super fun. Great for dates, ages, lists, and more!


I love this birthday kit called AND MANY MORE by Danielle Young at Oscraps . Might have to snatch it up…it is definitely birthday season around our house!


I also have one very cool, very unique product to share with you…Amy Sumrall’s SHAPE UP — A kit and learn and play program,



PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Shape Up! is way more than a digital scrapbooking kit. It is also an innovative and exciting system to teach your child how to make their own pages, and also provide them with hours of imagination driven fun! There are 3 components to this kit and program. Number 1 is the “traditional” digi-scrap backgrounds. Number 2 includes the “traditional” digi-scrap elements. Number 3 is very exciting! It includes a comprehensive Learn and Play System for your children! Let’s break it down and look at what is included! 1. There are 23 colorful backgrounds with prints and solids, perfect for scraping kid pages, birthdays, vacations and more! 2. There are also 67 “traditional” digital scrapbooking elements, including buttons, bows, handmade felties, frames, ribbons, sequins, glitter and flowers and oh-so-much more! Oh, and 4 mix -n- match alphas! 3. The Play and Learn System contains: The basic shapes your child will use to complete the video tutorial and to build many fun pages with. Remember ColorForms? This is the same idea, except your child can play with them on the computer and build a countless number of different pages all while using their imagination! I will show them how! Dress up dolls with outfits and hairdos for even more fun! Pre-made scenes that your child can use as a starting point for their pages which will be so much fun for them to add their photos to and decorate. Scene Builders which are pre-made elements built from shapes that your child can mix in with the elements that they will be building with shapes! Yes, that’s right! They will be making their own elements! Even the 3 year old kids with just basic knowledge of how to use a mouse! A link to the first 2 videos in a series that will show your child how to digi-scrap in the most simple and inspiring way. New videos will be made available monthly, and they will always be absolutely free! They are geared towards children ages 3 and up, but can be helpful to anyone with very little experience on the computer. The first video tutorial utilizes PhotoShop and can be applied to PhotoShop Elements too. With the purchase of this kit, you and your children have open access to all of the videos in the series for as long, and as often, as you’d like! Have an idea for a future video? Just email me and I will add it to the list of upcoming videos! No stone was left unturned in putting this kit together! I have even included the color palette I made and utilized to create this kit with, which we will be using in an upcoming tutorial video! Every single item in this kit was created using only the very basic of shapes: square, triangle, rectangle and circle (well, except for the strings and bows LOL!) It is amazing what can be created using only these basic shapes. There is no limit, especially for children who have such amazing imaginations as it is! I think it is very important to nurture our childrens imaginations and this kit will provide them with a great outlet for their creativity and help to foster what just may become a life long love of digital scrapbooking and art! I hope you and your family enjoy this kit and program as much as I enjoyed designing it for you!

I got a chance to get this set and have my kids play with it — we had so much fun! My six year old has already done some scrapping, so she was already familiar with how to do some things. She really enjoyed dressing up the dolls and then putting them in their “house.”



My son, who is four, has never done any computer scrapping stuff. But he was able to enjoy it too! He has a magnetic shape board that has lots of example pictures. So, we took some of those and recreated them using the shapes in the kit. He enjoyed telling me to make things bigger or small, a diferent color, or that they needed to be rotated. These were the results!



Aren’t these SO FUN? The kids had a blast and have been asking to do more. Go get yours! YOu can also check out Amy’s blog for more examples!


These products are just the beginning. The digi world is full of so much talent and creativity. The shopping only ends when your paypal runs out 😉
