We’re thrilled to have Amy Wolfe back with us at The Daily Digi! Amy was on my very first creative team back in 2006 and it has been fun to watch her scrapping and designing grow over these past nine years. Amy is an incredibly talented designer and her store is filled with gorgeous colors and edgy patterns. I know you all will be thrilled with her kit, The Whole Caboodle, part of this month’s Digi Files. Let’s take a look!
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 Amy Wolff’s contribution:
You can see more layouts created with this kit on our ”
Team Inspiration” page.
Let’s see, I’ve done this a few times now, so you all know the basics. Here are a couple things you may not know. I am an introvert raising one extrovert and two extreme introverts. We’ve been struggling with anxiety in our family for a few years now. It’s not easy, but with help it’s slowly getting better. I live in a town that is growing leaps and bounds, It’s been fun seeing all the national chains pop up a mile away that we had to travel 4 hours to get to before. There is a part of me that would like to move to the country, raise goats and chickens and garden. I’ve even wondered what it would be like to not have internet. Shudder…nope, that’s one thing I will need to keep!
I’ve been designing so long I can’t really remember what it was like as a beginner. I was a paper scrapper first (I still haven’t gotten rid of my paper stash), then a digi scrapper, then designing just fell into my lap. I love it, it’s a great way to be creative and help support my family.
I’m always looking for new trends, design websites, Target, home decor blogs, etc. A quick glance at Target’s apparel or home decor aisles usually are on point when it comes to what is trendy. Even though I’m trying to stay current, I also love classic everyday prints and elements.
Computer: I have an HP computer with 12 gigs of RAM and an intel i5 processor. I’m running Windows 8 but can’t wait for the next version to come out. I have a really big monitor and if I had room on my desk I would like to try having two.
Program: I’m still using PSCS6 although I saw a deal on the creative cloud and I might upgrade to that soon.
Camera: I have an old Nikon DSLR (10 years old) plus the camera on my iphone5
Anything Else: My little bamboo tablet bit the dust a long time ago. I’m tempted to buy a stylus for my ipad and try playing around with some of the new art apps that are out there. I don’t think it will be too long before a small ipad will have the power to run photoshop. Then maybe I won’t need a computer at all!
Here are two photoshop shortcuts that I’ve found recently (you can teach an old dog new tricks!)
1. If you’re working with multiple layers and you want to view one layer on its own, there’s no need to hide all the others manually, simply hold down Alt and click the Eye icon of a layer to make every other layer invisible. Hold down Alt and click again to reveal them.
2. You probably know that Cmd/Ctrl+Z is Undo, but you may not know Cmd/Ctrl+Alt+Z lets you undo more than one history state.
Usually the last product I finish is my favorite, but going back over the past year, this is definitely my favorite along with the matching papers. The color scheme was part of the September BYOC and I fell in love with them. I love how gender neutral this kit is. It’s just full of little bits and pieces that I had fun putting together.
I started putting together these value packs on my solid papers as a thank you to my customers during National Scrapbook Day. They were so popular I’ve done it for the past 3 years. I pride myself on using lots of different textures in my papers, and when you put together an entire years worth, it’s a spectacular collection of paper.
