Sweet Shoppe Designs: We All Love What We Do


Sweet Shoppe Designs was the very first store to ever contribute to The Digi Files, when they were featured in our very first issue. They joined us a second time a couple of years ago and we are thrilled to have them back again. Sweet Shoppe Designs has been home to many of my favorite designers over the years and I have come to depend on their great, consistent quality. Sweet Shoppe designers know how to theme kits very well and create beautiful and cohesive collections! You can find a great community, fun challenges, and plenty of inspiration at SSD! Let’s take a closer look at “Smart Aleck” that is included in The Digi Files this month:


This is ONE of SEVEN collections you get when you become a member of The Digi Game this month. You also get an interactive Playbook (in PDF and iBooks formats) that has lots of ideas for using the supplies including techniques, tips, and tricks! All of that, including access to exclusive collaborations every four months you are a member, for only $7.50 total per month!

Robin Carlton opened up Sweet Shoppe Designs February 1st 2006 with just 8 close friends aspiring to create high quality digital scrapbooking products. At that time there were very few stores and Sweet Shoppe Designs has stood the test of time and continues to be a trendsetter in the industry with a team of creative minds constantly striving for new ways to make your experience at our site unlike that at any other store.

Never stop learning and adding new techniques to your designs. The digital industry moves so quickly, so if you want to keep up you need to put a lot of time and love into your designs.

From day one SSD has taken a professional approach to digital scrapbook designing. Each of our designers considers this her primary career, and bringing you the highest quality digital scrapbook designs week after week isn’t just a hobby for our team, it’s our livelihood. We all love what we do…and I think that shows in a designer’s product!

Memories in the Making was created for this years iNSD celebration at Sweet Shoppe Designs. We wanted to create something whimsical and fun that would be perfect for everyone to use for their day to day memories. We were inspired by the trendy photo prop images that have been very popular on Pinterest.

Memories In The Making includes 35 digital scrapbook papers, nearly 150 digital scrapbook elements including 2 full alphabets, a 12×12 template from Nettio Designs, a 24×12 template from Janet Phillips, 4 layered titles by Cindy Schneider and a whimsical new font by Darcy Baldwin and Jenn Barrette.

What is great about this kit, is that not only is it playful and fun, but is it perfect for boys or girls of any age.


We have had a great response from our customers on our Enjoy The Little Things store collaboration created exclusively to celebrate Ali Edward’s Week in the Life project for 2012. This soft and sweet digital scrapbooking kit is packed with 20 colorful papers, a slew of gorgeous elements, a full alphabet, an amazing font and 3 awesome layered templates that can be used for your everyday photos. This kit was inspired by this quote by Kurt Vonnegut – “Enjoy the little things in life, for someday you will realize they were the big things”.
