For the first time ever in the nine years, I have been selling my designs, I have actually managed to make two Christmas kits in one season. I am ridiculously proud of myself! LOL!
My first Christmas kit this year "Angels Choir" were a fairly adult/grown up scrapbooking kit with very little red in it. This second Christmas kit is back to my prefered more kid themed style. Lots of Santas and red colours. I wanted to give a traditional Christmas themed kit a modern twist and I came up with our "new" "best friend": the mobile phone. And then added some birds to tweet. I hope, you like this twist.
In the kit you find: 16 pattern papers, 6 solid papers, 3 full alphas (a-z plus 0-9), 1 BONUS quick page and 75 embellishments: 6 birds, 1 cake bird house, 3 candy canes, 1 Christmas hat, 1 Christmas tree, 3 clusters (/2 of them has a shadow applied), 2 cookies, 1 cup of hot chocolate, 13 flowers, 1 frame, 1 G-key, 4 glitter snowflakes, 1 heart, 2 hollies, 1 (line of) lights, 1 (set of) mittens, 1 mobile phone, 4 music notes, 4 (pieces of glitter) pine, 2 (glitter) pine edge overlays, 4 santas, 1 scarf, 1 simple pine wreath (glitter), 1 skate, 2 snowmen, 1 speak bubble, 1 star hanger, 6 twisted ribbons and 5 words.
(For now - still having zen cart issues) - You can buy the kit in my etsy store.
This is what I came up with, when I played with the bonus quick page:

If all go as planned, I will have a new newsletter out tomorrow. This newsletters exclusive freebie is this one:
You can get the freebie by subscriping to my newsletter. That can be done in the top left coloum of this blog.
Here is a sneak peek of the exclusive freebie in my next newsletter.
It is a 3600*3600 px. (12*12 inch) quick page made using my new kit "Halloween Scares".
It will ONLY be available in the upcoming newsletter. That is scheduled to be send out this Saturday, so if you would like to get this quick page and are not already a newsletter subscriber then don't forget to sign up today or tomorrow. Can be done at the left coloum of this blog or on the main site of my website. I send out newsletters everytime, I have a new kit ready, which is once or twice a month depending on how fast (/okay slow) I am.
This years Halloween kit from me is now available. Normally it would - obviously - be in my personal store Digital Scrap World, but as some of you might have noticed (/there is a banner at the top), I have some minor technical issues after a database update. I have opted not the put the kit into the store until this problem is solved. Meaning that so far the kit will only be sold at etsy, where I can not offer instant download due to the limitations there.
I am working on making an exclusive newsletter freebie from this kit. Hopefully the newsletter will be send out this Saturday.
As per usual one might say I have had some "troubles" limiting myself with this kit, so again it is a really big one. In it you find 16 pattern papers, 8 solid papers, 3 full alphas (a-z plus 0-9) and 119 embellishments: 1 arrow, 3 bats, 1 border, 1 candelabra, 1 candle, 1 carving tool, 2 cats, 2 cauldrons, 1 cluster (in 2 versions - with and without frame - both has a shadow applied), 3 doodle circles, 1 dracula, 6 flowers, 2 frames, 5 ghosts (also included a version with shadow beneath the ghosts), 3 (pieces of) greenery, 1 (handwritten word) HALLOWEEN, 4 Halloween berry branches, 10 (bottles of) potions, 6 pumpkins, 1 pumpkin splash, 10 (pieces of) ribbon, 1 (handwritten word) SCARY, 1 sign (saying) Halloween, 1 skull, 3 spiders, 2 spiders on cowebs, 7 spider webs, 6 tags, 1 (handdrawn) tombstone with RIP on it, 9 (scary) twigs, 1 witch, 13 words and 1 (handwritten words) Trick Or Treat.
I don't know, how many of you are etsy buyers or sellers, but if you are, you might have noticed a change in the search results shown to you. Etsy has for reasons unknown to anyone but themself decided to make their famous global marketplace into a local ditto. So search results will depend on, where you search from. This is in my and many other etsy sellers and buyers eyes a BIG mistake. Therefor there has been made a petition on change.org to try and make etsy see their mistake. If you agree, you can sign this petition here.
If you are a newsletter subscriber you will have received a link to this newsletter freebie today:
I offer exclusive freebies to my newsletter subscribers, so if you are interested in getting these don't forget to sign up.

I am working on a travel kit called "Travel To The End Of The World". Most likely the kit will be available in my stores next week. For now I have a sneak peek - a layout made with the kit:
In this kit I have tried to work "outside the box", when it comes to colour swatches. Normally I work with very strict swatches, but in this one I have allowed myself (LOL) to work with more colours and using them less "balanced" (some are almost not used, and others are used alot).
I hope, you are going to like this kit once it is finished.
