Digital Trends | Holiday Products, Part I

Digital scrapbooking stores are bursting at the seams with new holiday-themed products. There are so many new products showing up daily that it is impossible to share them all. I’ve chosen some of the more unique and interesting products to show you here but don’t forget to check out the links to the stores – there are many, many more wonderful products out there. In an attempt to highlight as many products as possible, I’ve split this article into two parts so check back tomorrow for the second part! Right now, let’s go take a look at some of the newest releases.

Designer Digitals

At Designer Digitals, Cathy Zielske has just released three really fun holiday products. Her first release includes 10 holiday-themed check cards sized just under 3 x 4, perfect for Project Life or any digital or hybrid project and includes two different Hanukkah cards. Her second release is another fun set of cards featuring holiday themes layered over a grid background. Her third release is totally fun and unique – 17 holiday-themed words featuring social-media savvy hashtags.

Katie Pertiet has also released a bunch of new holiday projects. My favorite is her layered template pack that includes four 12×12 digital pages with stitched page grids.  She included little bits and pieces of accents in a December theme so that the pages can be used for Project Life or in a December Daily album.

Studio DoubleD’s newest release is adorable – it includes five ready-made elfin accents that would go perfectly with any digital layout or an Elf on the Shelf page.

The Stocking Dance by beccanicole05

I love the patterns that this designer chose for her layout! She has stripes, polka dots, a doily, buttons and stitching – the mixed patterns and varying textures work very well together, and the neutral background provides the perfect backdrop for these adorable photos.

December Daily Album Cover by AllisonWaken

Allison’s album cover is the epitome of simple perfection. She used an embossed kraft chipboard album as her base and painted it white. She then layered baker’s twine over the front and added a bright red holiday label to the center of the album. She finished it by adding letter stickers under the label for a very simple and sophisticated album cover.
