First up, you’re going to flip over our brand new iPhone app that you can download from the app store! Steph will do a post tomorrow on everything it does, but a few of the cool features are:
1) Access The Daily Digi posts, The Digi Show posts and play the show in-app.
2) Access our Flickr stream with digital scrapbook inspiration at your fingertips.
3) Share any of these on Twitter, Facebook, and email.
4) Save layouts and posts to your inspiration tab in the app for easy access later.
5) Our new CHALLENGE ME that will generate a scrapbooking challenge for you and tell you how many photos to use, how papers, what colors of paper and embellishments, and how many patterned papers to use. Upload your layout to our Flickr group, then attach the layout to the challenge in the app.
Tell Us What You Think
We want to hear from YOU! We have a new survey for our readers, members, and newsletter subscribers! It’s super short, will only take a couple of minutes (or less) and when you’re done, you’ll get a link to download this template:
There have been several requests for the ability to sign up to receive the posts via daily emails. Steph has added this feature to our newsletter, if you would like to start receiving these daily post updates in your inbox, just click on update your profile here or it’s always at the bottom of the newsletter as well. If you change your mind later and don’t want the daily updates, click update your profile again to uncheck that box.
Playbooks in new formats
Now the Playbook in PDF and iBooks (part of The Digi Game annual and monthly membership) will be joined by Kindle and Nook Color!
Speaking of the Playbook in new formats, we have had many requests to make past Playbooks available for purchase. Later this month, you will be able to purchase Playbook Packs Jan-June 2011 (234 pages) and June-December 2011 (291 pages) on the site. The packs will be priced at $45 for each six month pack. Members will receive a coupon code valid for the first week after release in the members area (a newsletter will go out as well).
These packs will be available in PDF, iBooks, Nook Color, and Kindle. We have clickable Table of Contents, bookmarks by month, designer, and topic. We have also verified the links to tutorials, etc. are accurate and functional.
Tell All Show
Our 50th episode of The Digi Show is up and it is a fun show! Katie, Peppermint, and I answered YOUR questions and didn’t hold back! Some of the information included:
- Our secret indulgences (this might shock you)
- Why Steph doesn’t share her last name
- Steph’s most traumatic experience in the digital community in the past 9 years
- How Peppermint decides who to collab with.
- Which pick by someone else on the show has changed our lives.
- How Steph decides what designers will contribute to The Digi Files and when.
Smile Free Mini Kit
About once a year, Steph gets a hankering to create a little collection. This time, when it happened, I also joined in the fun. This is a little look at a mini kit that will be going up for members only in just a few days. It’s a bonus for subscribers of The Digi Game level (monthly or annual). It’s been a lot of fun and I love the colors!
