New Kit - Paisley

Paisley is my newest release at Heritage Scrap and is a kit that I have been thinking about creating for some time.   It marries my favorite pattern - paisley, with some of my favorite colors - blues and berries and purples. 

As I was making some of the papers I was wishing I had them as fabric to quilt with!

I've included a special layered/laced 12x12 page as as usual several elements for journaling.  Peeking out from behind are two mats.  In a kit with lots of busy pattern, the mats help to create a visual resting place for your art, photos and journaling to shine.

The elements - all the "bits and bobs" to round out your layouts, including some paisley elements, flowers, leaves, lace, ribbons, bows...

Here are the frames in a variety of plain and fancy to go with your favorite photos.

So, what will this digital scrapbooking kit work well with - heritage, vintage, elegant, wedding, 80s, feminine.... you tell me!  What will you use paisley for?

Oh Baby! New Kits

For some time I have wanted to do a baby kit that would work for a baby book.  As a child I remember looking at family baby books with all the information and pedigree charts and photos and thinking they were "neat"!  I have had something in my mind for awhile but couldn't find the right color scheme until recently.  Then when I began designing there was really enough for two kits.

So there are two kits at Heritage Scrap:  My Family Tree - Baby Edition and My Family Tree Baby Edition Add On.

And there are two kits at Faith Sisters:  My Family Tree - Baby Edition and My Family Tree - Baby Edition Add On.

My vision for this kit was for families to create a baby book that includes a family tree and family information in it, combining genealogy, family history and babyhood, so that as their child grows up they know where they came from.  I do have plans to make a Shutterfly ready book so that if you want you can just insert photos and journaling!

As you can see the kit is versatile - it can have a baby focus or it can be used for other layouts as well.  Some of the elements are more modern and childlike and some are more on the heritage side.  The first kit has some titles in neutral brown and the add on kit has many titles in both peach and light green.  The titles are geared towards producing baby pages with numbers for the months, family words (like "cousin", "Grandpa" etc) and title words.

Please leave me a message or email me with a link if you have created something with these (or any others of my kits).  I would love to see what you do!  Below You will see some of the previews:

Happy 3rd Birthday Heritage Scrap!

Heritage Scrap is celebrating its 3rd birthday!  When I first began digi-scrapping in 2008, I was excited when I found the work of Kate McClellan, Lynn Griffin, and the late Jean Daugherty, I was so excited!  I finally had some designs that were not for children's scrapbooks (those kits *do* have their place), but could be used for genealogy and other heritage pages. A month later I joined the Creative Team and then became the Creative Team Leader.  I truly believe in Kate's vision for Heritage Scrap and it has been a pleasure to work there and eventually be mentored as a designer.  Congratulations on 3 wonderful years Heritage Scrap!

In order to celebrate, all of the designers have been having specials and there are some forum challenges as well.  You can enter the shop here.  And you can enter my shop here.

This week my shop will be 35% OFF!  Happy Scrapping!
