Trish Jones Retiring!

August 27, 2008

Australian designer Trish Jones has decided to “change her focus” and is retiring from designing.   Until August 31st you can purchase her entire store for $19.99. With over 400 items it is a very tempting offer, especially when the designes are so creative!


Polka Dot Potato

July 7, 2008

Polka Dot Potato has a lot to offer digi and hybrid scrappers.  There is a well stocked store that includes items designed specifically for Avery scrapbook products.  (A free sample is available!) You can also have loose pages printed in 12×12 and 8×8 sizes.  Currently if your print order is over $50 you will receive the first edition of the Better Homes & Gardens book “Ultimate Guide to Digital Scrapbooking!”.

In addition to the above there is also a gallery, forum and eventually there will be on-line classes and video tutorials also offered.


Design Reviver

June 30, 2008

Design Reviver is a resource for web designers, but there is a lot of good information and freebies available for scrappers.  There you will find tutorials, freebies, inspiration, and other useful information.  Good design matters whether you are creating a web site or scrapping your babies first steps.

Over 300 free vintage style textures and burshes are available, and over 200 textures, brushes and fonts are avaiable for grunge lovers.   These two catagories of freebies are the most obviously useful to scrappers, but there is more to be had.


DigiScrap Chat

May 19, 2008

This is what Char has to say about the purpose for DigiScrapChat: “I started this blog to share my love all things digi-scrap. I hope to encourage “newbies” who are interested in learning what digital scrapbooking is all about, and I also hope to find community with those who already are enjoying this hobby and passion!”

Main categories of posts include, Fun Sunday Finds, Mon Challenge, Tues Tips/Templates, Wed WOW, Thrifty Thursday, Photo Friday andDesigner Showcase. There is also an extensive list of digital scrapbooking blogs, as well as links to other digiscrap related resources.

The site is well organized and contains a wealth of information that is useful to both “newbies” and more experienced scrappers.


I was nominated for the Arte Y Picos Award!

April 14, 2008

I was nominated for the Arte Y Picos Award yesterday by Cherri aka AfriDigiDiva! I would like to thank her for this unexpected nomination and her kind words!

The award recognizes those bloggers that enrich and inspire us due to their dedication, creativity, refinement and art. The rules of the award are for nominees to post the rules on their blog.

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributions to the blogger community, regardless of language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winner, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. (That would be AfriDigiDiva as noted above.)
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y pico“blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.

It was hard to choose just five – I would have liked to have nominated a dozen, but rules are rules, so I would like to nominate the following:

1. Hummie (Hummies World) She has given so much to the digiscrap community through her tutorials and endless efforts to provide assistance to all.

2. Kim Boustany (Kimi Kreations) Her enthusiasm and artistic creativity never fail to amaze and inspire me.

3. Jessica Sprague (The Sprague Lab) She has inspired thousands with her creative tutorials, freebies and classes. Some day in the near future I hope to take one of her advance digiscrap classes.

4. Heidi (DigiScrapInfo) She and her sister Connie have put together an awesome resource for scrappers and in particular for those that scrap using ACDSee software.

5. Susan Darter (Raspberry Road Designs) Susan is a very creative woman who has been known to take requests when it came to designing kits and who gives away more than she sells.
