We Are Celebrating a Year of Your Memories & The State of The Daily Digi Union


As we welcome 2011, we are also welcoming this collection that has been a work in progress for several months!  It is a collaborative effort by 20 designers in the digital community that contributed to The Digi Files between September 2009 and September 2010.  “Celebrate a Year of Memories” is the perfect collection to help you document the memories that you cherish and want to celebrate! You can purchase this month’s Digi Files individually in the store or you can subscribe (monthly or annually) to receive even more goodies!

We did a collaboration similar to this in the fall of 2009 and I thought it would be fun to start doing them once a year in January, our birthday month!  Here’s what you will find in this collection:

226 Elements
76 Papers
1 ABR brush set
5 Alphas
2 Layered Templates
1 ScrapIt Layout Action

The designers that contributed to “Celebrate” are:

We are also celebrating The Daily Digi’s SECOND birthday today!!  I can hardly believe it, yet so much has happened in the past year!  Here’s a glimpse of a few of the things that kept us busy this past year:

  • We said farewell to Janet and her almost daily posts just over a year ago.  I love seeing her posts once a month and look forward to the inspiration they bring!
  • We brought Katie on as a Contributing Writer, I know we all enjoy the information, resources, and inspiration she provides!
  • We launched our own iPhone app.
  • We worked with almost 100 designers to bring a new issue of digi files each month.
  • We’ve created 437 posts.
  • Along with Paperclipping.com and IzzyVideo, we launched a weekly podcast, The Paperclipping Digi Show
  • We launched our own group on Flickr
  • We launched our Playbooks.
  • After almost two years of work, we finally launched subscriptions to The Digi Files and Digi Game (combination Digi Files and Playbook)
  • We said farewell to some team members and hello to new ones.

I have really enjoyed getting to know many of our readers, customers, and designers over the past year!  Many of you have been with us since our first post two years ago.  Many of you have purchased every month of The Digi Files from the beginning! We have welcomed new readers and brand new digital scrapbookers and I have loved every minute of it all!!

We have many, many projects and exciting new things that we continue to work on behind the scenes.  We plan to bring you lots of tutorials, ideas, inspiration, and freedom as you “Celebrate Your Memories” all year long!
