Hello Summer


We are so happy to have Amber Shaw with us here at The Daily Digi this month. I just love Amber’s beautiful kits, filled with GORGEOUS colors and rich texture. Her kit in The Digi Files, Hello Summer, is no exception. I think I gasped a bit when I saw it! Let’s take a look!

My name is Amber, I am a 40 yr old mom of 4 fantastic kids ranging from elementary to college age. I have been married for 18 years to my very best friend. We work so well because we are both crazy and constantly keep the laughter going. When I’m not designing, I am longing to move back to Tampa – I am a Hoosier right now. You can also find me formulating fragrances and beauty products, dabbling in photography, crocheting, binging on Netflix, cooking gluten free, and just enjoying my little family.



I just love these photos of my daughter when she was 6. The Sweetie Pie Collection was the perfect kit to make a page to capture the feeling of the moment she was so joyfully dancing during her photo shoot.



I got started in digital scrapbooking when looking for photoshop tutorials so I could learn to make my own labels for my fragrance line. I accidentally stumbled upon a digital scrapbook freebie site. I was intrigued with this, because I always loved paper scrapbooking pages but never had the patience to deal with the mess of paper scrapping. I downloaded some some things, and started scrapping. I never looked back. About a year later I was designing in a small store and that was over 6 years ago.


I definitely love color. Colors plays probably the largest part in comprising a design for me. I also love textures and flower patterns are an addiction for me. Plaid is a close second. I find inspiration from everywhere, kids clothing, pinterest, typography, and even seasonal decor and boutiques.


Computer: I have a MSI Apache gaming lappy with dual monitor – I just got my 2nd monitor about 2 weeks ago and I’m in heaven!

Program: Photoshop CC & Illustrator CC

Camera: Canon 5D

Anything Else: I do doodle in the Adobe Ideas app on my Ipad and definitely kick back at night before nodding off and hunt for colors. I hoard color ideas!


Experiment! I have always experimented over the years as a designer. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it was an utter failure! However, constantly experimenting helped me find “me” in my creative style. I think when you are experimenting in making your own pages, you will take a little of this and a little of that and before long you develop your own unique style and look. Plus, it’s fun!


I adore this kit. It’s so rich and earthy yet so sparkly and beautiful. Flergs and I have been making these themes since January and so far, this one is my favorite yet. I love that I was able to paint several unique pieces for the kit as well.



More Confetti has been very popular since it’s release. It continues to sell week after week. What inspired this kit was a wedding inspiration board and the wedding cake had confetti dots all over it in these same dusty pinks, lavender, and metallic gold. I made a freebie out of the inspiration and loved it so much personally, that I made this full kit in addition to it. I think it appeals to the girly girl side in us. It’s great for birthdays or any page that needs some sparkle and pink!!
