Good Morning Everyone!!!

Guess What!?! I am so excited to share some awesome news that just became official!! I am so honored to be part of something sweet! The Sweet Shoppe Design Team as one of their Hybrid Babes! The Sweet Shoppe Designs store has a TON (and I mean a TON!!!) of Digital Papers, Templates and everything that you need for all your digi scrapbooking needs - they also have a hybrid team to where we combine the digi papers into a traditional card/scrapbook making!!! And I am SO excited to be part of this - along with two other brand new Hybrid Babes: the very talented Heather Nichols and Anthonette Chavez!!!

The wonderful Robin Carlton who is the owner of the Sweet Shoppe Designs store just sent out a newsletter announcing this and check out the sweet little welcome she included for us!!! I am so excited to be working with Digi Media and translating that to more traditional paper making projects and cards!

To show you how AMAZING the world of digi papers is - I made a super quick card using one of their kits by designer Fee Jardine called Fallin 4 You. This picture below is the complete set that you will get to download:

I mean there is a TON of elements and papers and embellishments and letters - there is just so much in one kit - that it is mind boggling to think of all the projects that one could create!!! I totally fell in love with the cute sweet owls so I made a card using the Digi papers that I printed out and used like any other paper and also the cute owl images and came up with this card:

Ink: Rose Red from SU!
Stamps: from Making Memories
Accessories: ribbon and button from stash, corner rounder, liquid glaze, liquid pearls, dimensionals,

All the papers are digital papers that I printed out (except for the brown cardstock) and then scored, cut and sponged like any other paper. Aren't those owlies just darling!!! I applied a little liquid glaze on them so they would pop out a little bit :)

So here are some digital questions that I had and my own answers to my questions:
  • 1. Does it take a lot of ink to print out the papers: Nope - I thought it would but it printed very easily, cleanly (I printed on a matte cardstock)
  • 2. Don't I need a really good printer to print out digital things: Nope! I definitely have a very sorry printer and the fact that I could print stuff from my printer amazes me! If my printer could print out these yummy pages - I guarentee that yours will too!
  • 3. Why Digital? Well, one thing for a very small fee - you can download a TON of papers, embellies etc. that you can use again and again and again AND resize to YOUR paper crafting project! And it doesn't take up space on your craft desk! And these papers are AMAZING at the Sweet Shoppe! SO impressive!!! I want them all! :)
  • THe other thing is that I love printing out these super cute images/papers and making a card out of them. I love getting dirty in my inks and embellies and now I feel like there is an endless supply of papers that I can use again and again right at my finger tips! LOVE that!

I am sure there are other questions that I had that I can't remember them - and if you have any I will try my best to answer them or find someone who might know! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Big hugs and happy heart smiles!

Sankari :)
