I LOVE all the new stuff Shabby Princess has out right now!!! There are two new square albums and one CD album on sale, plus six sets of her new round labels (more on those below).
Also, if you aren’t one of the 15,000+ members of DigiShop Talk (DST), you may not know that she is the featured designer there this month, check out her interview (and more) right here! She created a special kit just for DST Gold Members, which is so pretty and summery, I LOVE it :)!
Here’s the page I made with the kit, Summer Cottage:
I was soooo thrilled to see that it was printed in this month’s DigiShop Talk Insider! I think that was my first time ever being published in there :). Isn’t this a nice photo of my sister and me? I really love this kit, and I was so inspired by the round labels in the kit that I went a little circle crazy cropping all the pretty papers into round shapes too LOL! Well even if I did go overboard on the circles a tiny bit, I like anyway!
Photoshop Tip: To quickly add lots of patterned paper circles to my page, I created a new layer, then I used a hard-edged circle brush to draw some lines across the page (in the brush palette I had changed the settings so that the brush size would be varied and the circles would not be overlapping). Then I changed the brush color and repeated the same steps again a few more times, each time on a new layer. When I was happy with the placement of all my circles, I used each of the circle layers as a clipping mask for my patterned papers :)!
Shabby Princess was also inspired by her round labels from the Summer Cottage kit. In fact, she made six more themed sets of them, which are all on sale at the Shabby Shoppe for only $.99 for a limited time. I love them all, and I love that each set coordinates with a different one of her kits.
I can totally see myself using these for cards and other hybrid projects too – so fun! If you love these as much as I do, you’ll want to go grab them at The Shabby Shoppe while they’re still on sale :)!
