While browsing through Pinterest this week, I was struck by the patterns on these bowls by Anthropologie. I love the way the patterns interact with each other.

While looking through Pinterest a few weeks ago, one particular photo jumped out at me. It was circles – lots of circles. My first thought was that they were super-cute scrapbooking embellishments – and they are! But then I had another idea – to make a layout based on the circles.
Spring is upon us and with the season, comes fun seasonal scrapbooking kits! Everywhere I look, I see bright colors, bunnies and kits celebrating new life. Here are just a few of the new digital kits that caught my eye this week.
The Sweet Easter Kit at the Digichick, designed by Etc. by Danyale, immediately drew me in. It is adorable and includes a banner, bunnies, eggs, and beautiful shabby papers, as well as numerous other embellishments.

Meet the Designer | I am happy to introduce you to an incredibly talented designer that you are probably already familiar with – Katie Pertiet. Katie is both the owner of, and lead designer at, Designer Digitals. I hope you enjoy getting to know her!
Katie’s Background | Katie grew up as a middle child of four children and earned a degree in graphic design from Iowa State University. After working at various ad agencies in several design positions, she started her own business in 1993 and freelanced for textbook publishers and corporate design departments. She has been a hobby scrapbooker and photographer since high school and worked as a professional photographer in college. Combining those two loves with her extensive design experience led her to digital scrapbooking in 2004.
Just a year later, she founded Designer Digitals and then found herself moving across the country. With the move, she decided to forego developing a new corporate client base and instead focused all of her energy into building Designer Digitals.
Katie’s Style & Inspiration | Katie’s style is varied – she designs vintage products as well as products with a more modern, graphic feel. She seems to effortlessly bring together vintage-based products and the art world to create timeless designs. As she says, ” I can easily go from designing vintage products, to whimsical graphic, and everything in between.” When asked about her favorite style, it was an easy answer, “My favorite things to create are vintage products.” Katie is very open to inspiration in the world around her and finds inspiration everywhere. “Advertisements, music videos, magazines, the mall! It all stirs up something!” Continue Reading →
While looking through Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, I spotted some delightful bracelets that really intrigued me. The clean lines of the design plus the pops of gorgeous color drew me in immediately. When I clicked through to the designer’s website, the first thing she explained was that she was inspired to create them by another bracelet she had found on Pinterest. I love that circle of inspiration!
The designer of these charming bracelets is Katy, the owner and writer of the popular blog, Sweet Verbena. Made of just embroidery floss, beads and hollow charms, they are beautiful in their simplicity. Katie has a full tutorial on her site found at Bracelets: A Tutorial and I can’t wait to make some.
