Digital Trends | School Kits

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.

Designer Digitals

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.

Digital Trends | Blending

Blending has always been a popular tool for digital scrapbookers. It’s one of those fun techniques that you just can’t do with paper scrapping. Using photoshop or other similar programs, you can blend papers, photos, textures, overlays, brushes and on and on. The possibilities are truly endless. Blendable products are really hot right now. Let’s take a look at just a few of the new digi products that have been released.

Designer Digitals

Katie Pertiet has collection after collection of blendable products at Designer Digitals. She has just released 3 new blending products this week, including vintage journalers with soft edges for easy blending, as well as a blended template that includes snippets of papers and elements. All you have to do is add your photo, paper and some journaling. Her third release is a set of 4 12×12 clipping masks for blending your own papers and photos.

Noteworthy | 5.18.2012

Welcome to another week of Noteworthy! It was a relatively quiet week this week in the scrapbook world compared to the flood of releases and big news the past few weeks, but we still have lots of fun stuff to talk about! So let’s get started…

The biggest announcement this week arguably came from Becky Higgins, and it was about Project Life, of course. Details of the announcement are a bit sketchy because Becky’s announcement video is currently unavailable for viewing. However, the brief summary points that she posted underneath the video indicate the following big changes are coming soon to the Project Life core kits:

  • Project Life core kit production is being shifted to the U.S. from overseas. This will cut down on out of stock time as production is much faster, and the print and paper quality will be much better.
  • Packaging is changing to a large flat package that includes a plastic tray in which all of the cards will lay flat. All of the new packaging is 100% recyclable.
  • Kit contents will be changing: There will now be 500 journaling cards in each kit, with “filler” designs on the back, plus 40 bi-fold cards (up from 24). The title cards will be horizontal designs on the front and vertical on the back (the same designs, just shifted in orientation).
  • Another change that is coming to the kit contents: stickers are being eliminated, for now. Becky says it is too expensive to produce them here in the U.S., so they are eliminating them from the core kits, and looking at options to produce them as a separate item that can be purchased as an add-on for Project Life in the future.
  • The original Project Life kit is coming back! As part of the new U.S. production, all of the Project Life core kits are being reprinted: Clementine, Cobalt, Amber, and Turquoise – and the original kit is coming back as well! It will be called the “Cherry” edition.
No precise word from Becky on when we’ll see these changes in action in the product shipping to customers. Continue Reading →
