The day-to-day school routine has been a bit stressful in my household this fall and I’ve been searching for some products to help make schoolwork more fun for my preteen daughter. And so I went to Pinterest. But instead of finding something for her, I found something for me! Funny how that happens sometimes, isn’t it?

Plaid always makes me think of fall and winter and the holidays. The weather is definitely getting colder here in the midwest and this gorgeous plaid duvet set I found on Pinterest really inspired me this week.
Inspiration is all around us and you can find it in the funniest places. In my last Pinterest article, I showed you how I was inspired by a set of sheets. This week, I’m going to show you how I was inspired to design a layout based on a fish tank. Yes, you read that right – a fish tank. As I’ve said before, Pinterest is one of my favorite sites for scrapping inspiration, and this week, I was inspired by this amazing little piece of architecture designed for underwater pets.
Chalkboards and chalky alphabets are all over the digital scrapbooking world right now. Every week, I see a new chalkboard idea on one of the digi sites and they are cool and funky. Let’s go take a look at just a few of the chalkboard products I’ve seen lately.
At Designer Digitals, Katie Pertiet has a lot of chalk and chalkboard products in her store. Some that have caught my eye include six ready-made clustered square elements, a paper pack of basic chalkboard backgrounds in various shades of green and black, and a chalkboard alphabet set rimmed in metal.

School is starting all across the country and digital designers have been very busy making sure that we have new back-to-school kits. I’m not sure when I’ve seen this many new school collections at one time, and they are all fantastic! Let’s go take a look at just a few of the newest collections.
At Designer Digitals, Katie Pertiet has just released two new school-themed collections, one classic bright collection and one for vintage fans. Her “School Mates Kit” includes bright primary colors and loads of fun and whimsical stickers and characters. Her “Lesson Book Kit” includes an old schoolhouse collection of papers, flowers, frames, labels and oodles of other embellishments. Both of these kits are just part of larger collections that you can find at Designer Digitals.
