A Special Time

December and January have always been a special time for me. As my children were growing up we would celebrate Christmas with family, prepare gifts, get closure for the year and make new years resolutions.
This kit is a bit of an eclectic mix. I wanted you to be able to use it for layouts or art journalling.
It contains 18 papers plus the plain colors textured so a total of 23. They are in 5 zips.
There are a mixture of elements totalling 59. A few are good for christmas specifically but I wanted to keep these versatile so you can use over and over.
I have included contact sheet images in the store so you can see what you are getting.
You can see more here.

As I always stressed to my children the importance of giving I want to give to you too.

So if you spend $5 you will get a coupon for $2.50.

Keep an eye on my Blog Facebook and at GDS for more gifts.

Enjoy your art

Christmas papers with a twist

OH my where did the year go. Christmas is almost upon us so i thought I had better make some backgrounds to use for my Christmas cards. I am decorating my tree in purple as I am not a traditional gal so I made 2 versions of my papers. one in more traditional colors and one not so much.

They are available in my store now and you can grab a S4H or CU license if you wish. Check the store for closeups. These papers are a bit grungy, a bit arty, a bit distressed and a bit Christmas. You could use them for lots of things outside of that.



Artybacks – watercolor backgrounds for PU and CU

I needed some de-stressing last week so got out my watercolors and paper and sat in the backyard  playing. My plan is to build my stash of resources but I thought I would share.

I have 4 sets instore now. 2 for CU straight from the scanner and 2  for Personal use that have been textured. You could also use them for your cards, art journals, or in your craft.
Use them as overlays over your patterns or photos or add your own brushes/text/designs.

See the extra images instore for closeups. You will find them here.



DOORS – They can mean so much. They can make you wonder what is inside, inspire you with their beauty or be a welcome when you come home. I often take photos of doors and this is the first in my explorations. You can get these exclusively at GoDigitalScrapbooking.com
The pack contains 4 12 inch papers based on my own photos. These are individually worked and textured and are gamut checked and at 300dpi so they will print perfectly.
Use them in your scrapbooks, as elements in your art or journalling, integrated with your photos or journalling and printed for the wall or as gifts.

 Painted Doors is a pack of 4 large graphics for CU. They are 300 dpi,gamut checked and based on my own photos so there are no copyright issues.
One is 12 inches and the other three are approx 10 x 13in.
