A look into my Digi-Scrap Addiction....

Recently I discovered Digital Scrapbooking. Due to being on the move shortly I have had to pack up all my scrapbooking supplies. I was feeling a little bored and came across some digital pages on Angela's - An Angel's Antics Blog. They were so great and sometimes you really can't tell they are digital pages at all. So that's how my addiction started.

I then Googled Digital Scrapbooking and Digital Scrapbooking Freebies. This opened up a whole new world! I started out just downloading freebies from places like Digifree, Digitreats and Cuppycakes Digital Designs. This got me some great free papers and embellishments to get me started. I then discovered Pickleberrypop blog and fell in love with A LOT of there stuff. They are Australian and have there own website here with a great store that has heaps of really affordable (I use the word affordable because the word cheap would just not do them justice!) kits, Alphas, Embellishment packs, grab bags and even Actions (for PSCS - even though I use Paint Shop Pro 9), Brushes, Doodles & Stamps and Overlays and Textures. They also have a great forum that I have recently joined and am loving!

So I am still downloading great freebies from HEAPS of different sites (I will add a list below) but I have also moved onto the world of actually buying from these great designers. My first buys being All I am saying Vol. 1 Elements Pack by Tara Dunstan Designs, Alflafla Alphas by Kaye Winiecki, Pins & Straps elements by Alice Koh Designs, Tagged Elements also by Kay Winiecki and Distressed Stamp Alpha also by Tara Dunstan. I also picked up there Kitbash Vol 3 for free!

I made the page below with a mixture of Alflafla, Tagged (the staples come with Tagged) and Distressed Stamp. The papers are Kit Floraly - Benexav-Digiscrap faded & layered over Folded & Lined Overlay - Gunhild Storeide.

Sweetest thing

Very happy with the out come.

Here are some other kits from Pickleberrypop I am wanting to purchase...

Candy Girl by Carole Neale Designs
Over the Rainbow by Natalie Bird
Play on Play by Jessica Gorny
Temptation by Sunflowers

Well that's all I have time for today - this post has taken me 4 hours as it is! (Inbetween feeds, nappy changes and just general everyday stuff.) So lastly I'll leave you with a list of great freebie sites.....

xxoo - This is excellent! - Great Wordart for your pages

There are just some, I will add more another day.

TIP: I subscribe with BLOGLINES, this keeps me up with any new freebies posted.
