Don’t you just love all of those fun doodles? They make me smile! I love the unique elements in this kit! :) This is just ONE of the SEVEN collections you get for ONLY $5 with THE DIGI FILES! I know it sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t at THE DAILY DIGI! Let’s look at some layouts created with this kit:

A5D

My name is Amy Hutchinson, and I am the owner of After Five Designs. Above all else, I am a 30-something full-time mom. I have 3 beautiful girls (ages 10, 12, and 16), and one rambunctious son (age 5). We live and love in the music-filled city of Memphis, TN.

I love photography and have been improving my skills slowly over the past couple years. I have been a digital designer for nearly 3 years now, but I was a scrapper before that. My designer name is ah! Designs, named for my initials but also for the sound you make after taking a refreshing swig of something nice. And, yes, I do enjoy the occasional cocktail! ;)

After Five Designs began on September 16, 2008. It was a spur of the moment idea - the whole process from conception to launch took only about 4 weeks. I had been designing for about a year, and I decided that to celebrate my birthday, I would like to take the leap from designer to store owner. I envisioned a one-stop shoppe that would house the industry's best quality and creative artists, as well as offer a community of inspiration, talent, and fun. I gathered a few of the most talented scrappers and asked them if they would like to learn to become designers. They all said yes, and A5D was born!

We wanted to put the emphasis on the joy and relaxation that digital scrapping brings, so we designed the site around "happy hour." Work is over, it's playtime! We are committed to bringing the community the best in digital scrapbooking supplies. We keep quality a top priority while taking time out now and then to have a little fun!

My personal favorite collab kit that we have done is Time Flies. This kit was done with the colors of our site and was offered as a freebie for our 1-year birthday celebration, it is now for sale in the store:
