Fall Berries by grandma lynnie

Lynn’s beautiful fall layout is the perfect example of the possibilities that are open with digital scrapping. She blended her photo with background paper and then blended text brushes onto the paper as well. Her large but light and airy title just adds to the perfection. The result is stunning.

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.

Digital Designers | Katie Pertiet

[Editor's Note: This author is a long-time member of the Designer Digitals creative team.]

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 →
