And now… for those of you who have been keeping tabs on the development of our digital scrapbooking products, we’ve got more than enough to keep you happy tonight, with sneak peeks at the last two January releases as well as never before seen layouts by members of the digital creative team!
You’ll also have the chance to chat with members of the creative team and ask questions of these amazing women, who leave us speechless with awe every time they show us their stuff.
Whether you like boys’ collections or girls’ ranges, vintage or modern designs, bright or muted colors, we have no doubt you’re going to love our next two January digi releases, School Days and Amour.
For your viewing pleasure, we’re pleased to offer a little sneak peek of two of our hottest digi collections yet.
We’re making it easier than ever to scrap your little one’s first day of school and other happy schoolyard memories with School Days, a collection of sketchy, hand-drawn doodles and cutesy school-related brushes that will take you back to your own school days.
The collection’s four papers, including busy images of music notes, books and sporting equipment and a co-ordinating page of notepaper, are combined with 12 transparencies that make mixing and matching to any school colour a total breeze.
And if you don’t have kids and can’t think of any way to use a school-themed collection, fear not – our final January digital collection, Amour, is as far removed from pencils and backpacks as possible!
Family photos, vintage pics and anything relating to romance or friendship will perfectly suit this wonderfully understated and floral-themed range. Amour boasts 12 papers in caramelly browns and refined pale pinks and greens, three brush sets with a heavy emphasis on stitching and elements ranging from buttons and frayed ribbons to felt flowers and co-ordinating tags and frames.
Amour will come just in time for Valentines Day and is just right for scrapping photos of your other half, family snaps from previous generations and elegant baby photos for new couples.
So sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the night…we have plenty of fun coming up!
