New Digi-Scrap Kit

So here my husband is, stuck in this silly boot cast everyday and through the evenings too. Having to put that thing in the bed with us each night after dragging it around everywhere, just seemed so… well yucky. To keep the yuck off our sheets, he’s been putting it inside a pillowcase at night. This past week I grabbed up an old pillowcase from the drawer that I haven’t seen in ages. It was ratty and torn and just the right thing to use for his bootcast covering.

However, it had some rather interesting stitches on it. Embroidered by my grandmother many moons ago and it was almost completely ruined from years of washing and use. But I decided I wanted to preserve this little bit of family history. So I removed that part of the pillow case and ironed the piece. As I ironed it to prepare it for proper storage (until I can make something wonderful of it), I fell in love with the design. So what did I do with it? Well, I used this piece of grandma’s heart, as inspiration to craft up a new digi kit. Okay, actually it turned out to be a mini-kit at this point. But it will eventually be a full size kit. I’m just still playing around with ideas.

Since I have so many paper scrapping friends too. I went ahead and put together a new “Paints Printz” kit for them to download and print for their paper albums.

Then I gave these kits out as freebies for CHW members who joined me in a couple of chats this weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing what they make with them.

Here’s a few little goodies I created using the digi mini-kit:Tinkerbell Trick-or-Treater

Since I’m still new to the digi-art world, I’m always experimenting with my toys to see what I can do. When creating this last piece I was trying to teach myself how to distress and warp a photograph. I think the experiment went well. Even though it’s different from what I intended, I still like the outcome.Thanks for visiting my blog today!
