A Digi-scrappin’ freebie!

I don’t know what came over me. I was just learning how to use patterns and textures in photoshop. That’s it, I swear. But then I saw this really cute pillow in this decorating magazine. And I thought, Man, that would make some really cute scrapbook paper. And we all know I’m not above scanning in a pillow to make a cute design. Heck, I’ve even done it with a dog bed to make a blog background before. The next thing I knew I was acting like I knew what I was doing and trying to make digital scrapbooking papers :p

Now don’t get too excited or anything. ;) I don’t think this is going to be a regular gig for me. (Are those famous last words?) I enjoyed making the papers, but that’s about it. lol …You’ll be able to tell from the glaring lack of elements in this “kit”. Can it even be called a kit if it only has like 3 different elements? Hah.

Well anyway. Since I made it and everything, I figured I might as well share it with you guys too. :D

This kit includes:
22 papers
5 ribbons
5 buttons
4 stitches

    Hi Kevin and Amanda,

    I am planning on launching a website of my own soon. Your Spring mini kit digital scrapbooking papers are awesome. My hope was that you had these papers in lavender / or purple. Any chance you can find some for me in your spare time. I’m trying to make a garden theme with lavender flower stems. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Amanda,

    I just recently discovered the fun (and addicting) digital scrapbooking. Thank you so much for sharing this kit, I’m currently working on a project for my daughter and will post it on my blog as soon as I’m finished and of course I’ll link it to your website. :)

  7. Heather

    I LOVE your Spring kit!! I just tried the tutorial on Photoshop Elements 9 (it has the rulers and grids, thankfully) with a different design package but it did not come out right on my blog. I am using the minima template but with three columns. I then tried it on my other blog that is the minima template with two columns and it still did not fit. I will try again though because I think it looks great. :)


    HI there, Amanda
    I’m pretty sure I already commented before, thanking you for this kit, but I’m using it again! I so love it, and I have to say thank you so much for being willing to share it for free! I’d love to use your papers to make creations to sell on Etsy, but if you’d rather that I didn’t then I’ll stick with the papers I already own. Thank you again! (PS I’ve never used them for business – but I sure did use them to make a cookbook for our church group, and they all loved it! I did that for free, inspired in part by you!)

    Hi Amanda,

    I enjoyed your personality that is so well displayed in your verbiage. I felt as if I had known you for years.

    The creativity is amazing, love it.

  10. Brenn

    Dude, you are just too cool for words!! I’ve never used any kind of digi-scrapping anything ever, so I may be back to beg you for help! These are so super cute though–I’ll be sure to let you know if I use them on my blog!!

  11. Kate

    Thank you so much for the digi kit! I’ve used it a couple of times now and it’s been super easy for me to figure out. I’d also like to thank you for the photoshop tutorial. I’ve had so much fun the last few days messing with my photos!

  12. Leah

    I discovered your blog a few days ago and have not been able to tear myself away since. I am not into scrapbooking, but I do use Photoshop and have been enjoying using your fonts. I downloaded the sprink & fall kits to see what I could do with them for my LiveJournal. Oh, and your photographs are so amazing!

  20. Dhi

    Hi Amanda, I’m pretty new to digital scrapbooking – was never too fond of it until I saw your design. I think you’re the first one that change my mind about digital scrapbooking. I love PS – currently using PS CS4.

    I especially LOVE your spring mini kit – but somehow couldn’t download it… :-( :-( :-( is it possible to repost a new link if it’s not too much trouble for you? Thanks a heap :D


  21. Alicia-Marie

    Hi Amanda,
    Thanks so much for the tutorial! I was just playing around on photoshop too and was looking for new backgrounds when I found your blog! Can you help me figure out where or how you got the buttons and stitches? I have some papers and backgrounds of my own but I love the embellishments you give with buttons and stitches and the flowers you have now. Do you find them on the internet and download them or do you scan them in, if you scan them, how do you get it to be transparent behind them?
    Thanks so much for your help! I have used your spring kit on their right now! Thanks!!!!

  22. Helga

    Hi Amanda! Do you still have the tutorial on how to make your own custom blog desgign? Could you send me the link to it? Thanks for all the cute things you post on your blog :) I love it!

  23. Kaylea

    I’m sure I said thanks before…but just in case….
    I was trying your custom blog background instructions and thought…did I download this already?

    Anyway, Thanks!

  24. Tr

    This is so cute. I can’t believe there aren’t more comments for the number of downloads, even though 151 is a lot of comments normally. Thanks for the freebie and also the fonts! You guys rock!

  25. Gabriele

    Wow, I just found your page via digifree and really like it!
    Thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful kit!!

    Will definitely visit you more often in future.

    Greetings from Germany,

  26. Trish

    Thank you so much for posting this great freebie! I loved the colors so much (they’re the colors for our new house, knock on wood that we get it) and so I fiddled with it and put it up on my blog as graphics. You are such a talented and sweet person for doing all this.

    God bless!

  27. chatty

  28. Melissa

    I ran across your blog today and absolutely fell in love with it. You have so much creativity and have inspired me. Thank you and I will visit again soon.

  29. tiffany

    Thanks for sharing your kit. I used it for my blog header paired with another sites background. I haven’t gotten good enough yet to do my own background! =)
    Thanks again, do post another kit =)

  30. Monica @ Monkey Musings

    What an awesome website! I really need the visuals to go step by step in photoshop and it was great. I love your freebie papers, too. I scanned a piece of scrapbook paper I thought was cute and did a basic background. Photobucket didn’t give me the option of enlarging to 1MB so the background did shrink on the blog. Any suggestions would be helpful.

  31. LIndsay M

    Love this Kit!! Now I’m wondering what I might be able to come up with to make some of these papers ::: goes running around the house to find things to stuff in the scanner :::

    Seriously though, I love this and definitely want to see more from you!! Thanks!! :)

  32. Jean

    Nice kit! Thanks! And don’t worry about not have very many elements – I don’t use many in my layouts but I love papers!

  33. Cathi

    Your website is FABULOUS! I love it! I’m kind of new at all this, but I am learning and I can’t wait to incorporate fonts and backgrounds from your website to our blog.

    ANNNNNNDDDDD, I did post a K&A button on our blog because I think everyone should know how amazing your website is!

  34. Christina

    Thanks so much for your great tutorial and all your help (through Deanna LOL!)I love your fonts, I’m looking forward to using them!

  35. Cathy

    Thanks so much for the freebie… and the blog tutorial too… guess I should try making my own background sometime soon… but you do such a good job I just might borrow yours… hehehe.

  36. Star Harrington

    Amanda – you are amazing! I get excited when i see I have an email from you two. Thank you for this free packet and I can’t wait to use it. I’m kind of new to scrapbooking so it takes me a while – because I’m self taught. ALSO, BIG KUDDOS to you! I made your cheesy enchiladas the other night and took them to a birthday party – I made enough for 30 ppl! I was the hit of the party – and I wasn’t even my birthday!!! :D Thanks again for all you do – Star
