Interested in digital scrapbooking, but don’t know where to start? If you already have digital photos and photo editing software, why not try out some FREE digital downloads?
There are lots of great digital designers out there, and it is sometimes difficult to know which ones have a style that suits you until you’ve actually downloaded a sample of their work. Designers sometimes offer free kits and samples to show off their talent for this reason - and because they are just plain nice :).
In the past month, several designers have released new freebies so I thought I’d clue you in to a few of my favorites. If you like their style, why not take a look around the rest of their website? These websites are often great resources for ideas, inspiration and of course, scrapbooking supplies!
Shabby Princess: Festival is her newest kit, which I LOVE! But, if you’ve never been to her site before you can spend all day long downloading her fabulous kits – everything on the site is free :). If you like her designs, be sure to visit her main site: The Shabby Shoppe.
Paper Moons: This month, Anna Benjamin is having a “March Madness” event on her blog with tons of free giveaways! My favorite (so far) are the cupid wings. Her blog also has a whole section of freebies from previous posts.
Digital Design Essentials: Check out this page of neat challenges each with it’s own freebie. There are even more downloads on this page. I love this site, be sure to explore!
Two Peas in a Bucket: Mary, Mary Quite Contrary By Sande Krieger. If you don’t have one already, you will have to sign up for a free account first (which allows you to post in the gallery and message board, etc). This site has TONS of scrapbooking resources.
Shabby Miss Jenn Designs: (Available in March only). Here’s a twist on scrapbooking: this is a “page” not meant to print, but to set as your desktop screen. Right now I’m using it with some pics of my hubby and son – I love seeing the pretty designs along with my photos when I turn on the computer.
OK – I think you have enough fun diversions for today. Now go play!
