We would like to welcome back to The Digi Files Veronica Spriggs a.k.a Vivarant. Veronica’s kits have a vintage charm that calls to historian in all of us. She has a flair for including unique elements that can spark creativity. I love the deep tones in her contribution this month, that is perfect for documenting the seasons as they change from Summer into Fall. Let’s take a closer look at “All Earthly Goodness” 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! Here are some layouts created using Veronica Spriggs’s contribution:

Hi I’m Veronica sometimes known around the net as Vivarant. I’m a digital scrapbook designer with interests in web design, photography, cooking and fitness. I have a serious addiction for make up and fashion especially anything black. In fact 98% of my wardrobe is black. No not Goth, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I’m single and recently back in the dating pool. We could be here all day with stories about that. But I’ll just say it’s an experience and leave it at that.
This layout incorporates 2 of my favorite products. A Spot Of Tea and Elegant Inchies.
I’ve been designing a long time now. Since 2006 I believe. It all began when I wanted to learn to create elements and papers as well to share with my friends. I suppose a fixation developed as I’ve been doing it ever since. My friends encouraged me to try designing professionally and though it took me a while to build up my courage I’m glad I had that push.
Most times my desire to be productive keeps me busy creating. I have some rare conditions that renders me incapable of sitting still for any length of time. If my brain isn’t busy I’m going crazy.
That and my passion to be creative. When my creativity is at an all time low I switch to creating commercial use products. The photographing is busy work that spawns all kinds of ideas for new projects. The extracting is relaxing and therapeutic and leaves me refreshed to start new design projects.

Create your own beveled edge elements!
I’m sure no designer has just one favorite product. I for instance may have a favorite of the moment but ultimately several items will always be on my top list. For now I’ll name A Spot Of Tea.
A Spot Of Tea is just so elegant which is typical of designs I create but this one has a softness that is irresistible. As well, the clusters are just to die for.
When creating A Gentleman’s Journey I knew it would be a great collection. It’s masculine yet versatile. Vintage and full of fun elements. It’s a very large collection any scrapper is sure to get much use out of.
