NIFTY TOOL KITS AT SCRAP STACKS 20% THIS WEEKEND!

We have some more handy packs available in The Nifty Pixel Store at Scrap Stacks today and for this weekend only you can grab them at 20% off until midnight Sunday, not a bad little saving right there!

Grunge It Up Vol.1 Photo Clipping MasksStamped Stencil AlphaSay What You Mean Journaling Clusters and Tape It Up Vol.1 Washi Tape Pack are the perfect addition to your digi stash and could easily become your 'go to' toolkits for all your digital projects.


Are you looking for a touch of retro when adding some effects to your photos? Remember back to when we used 35mm film and accidently opened the back of the camera allowing light to damage the film? Welllll....these clipping masks have an editable layer of 'Light leaks' that enables you to adjust the opacity or alter the colour to create some cool slightly damaged effects to your modern photos. Nothing like being able to step back in time with these great clipping masks in your stash you'll be visiting the 60's, 70's or 80's in a flash!

Want to create some fun ways to journal on your projects? These journaling clusters are stacked full of great stamped, doodled and pin hole textures with paper strips layered on top to add your journaling to. They are perfect for those all important words or quotes you'd like to share.

Stamped Stencil Alpha
There is nothing like adding a touch of urban grunge to your projects. This cool stamped stencil style alpha is less than perfect but that's what makes it a must have. The stamped effect has a nice raw edge great for all your art journal or mixed media style pages and lends itself to some really cool graphic effects not unlike what you see in street art. The alpha can easily be recoloured to suit your project at hand or for some fun effects why not try clipping your finished words to some print media to create eye catching title work. 

Tape It Up Vol.1 Washi Tape Pack
This "nifty" little pack of washi tape is sure to become your 'go to' pack of stickyness. Perfect for adding a pop of colour or as they are meant for to adhere all your digital elements. Try combining several for some cool layered effects.
