SIMPLE STACKS No.1 PAGE DRAFTS READY FOR YOU TO CAPTURE AUTUMN!

This weeks release is an oldie I’ve pulled out of the vault. It has had a bit of a refresh, I’ve dusted off and dressed it up again ready for Autumn! SIMPLE STACKS No.1 includes 4 12x12 templates all designed with lots of stacked and layered clusters, perfect for showcasing all those beautiful Autumnal pattern papers. I included multiple photo opportunities and tightly grouped everything to leave lots of white space for extra drama. These are perfect for recording those daily memories you’ve created with your loved ones. Each template includes some dimensional shadowing for the time savvy. If you prefer to customise you’re own shadows you can turn those layers off and add your own personal touch. Easy peasy!

How awesome are these pages? I just love seeing all the different interpretations and kits used by all these creative peeps! If you scrap a page using any of our kits or templates, even if they are paired with other designers product from all around digi land I'd love to see them. So come and join me, the nifty gals and all our nifty friends over at our fans group and say hello!

WABI-SABI | A NEW COLLECTION

Its Saturday and that means is new release day over at Sweet Shoppe Designs! This week I have a wonderful collection called WABI-SABI! This quirky and fun collection is actually my latest collaboration with the uber talented Tracy Martin Designs.

Trace and I have known each other for a few years now. I discovered her back when she was selling at One Story Down many many moons ago! Tracy and I both live down under. She’s in N.Z and I'm in Australia so we thought hey why not band together and create a collection that captures life and all its imperfections!

So what does Wabi-Sabi mean? Well in traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centred on the acceptance of imperfection. And hey that is most of us, right?! We are not that Instagram perfect family. We are imperfect, we are chaotic, we are fun, a little sarcastic and a little bit naughty! We are awesomely unique and we are loved.

This unique bundle is jammed pack full of colourful goodies including a pack of word art, journal cards, mixed media and frippery all perfect for scrapping those not so perfect moments. These however are the memories we will remember for life, and they will make us smile. With loads of added extras to celebrate Neuro-diversity, and different kinds of perfect people we love so much. We know that you Mums do it harder, longer and tougher than most. This one is for you and your amazing life on the spectrum!
And before you head off remember to grab my freebie Wabi-Sabi Mini Kit below!
How amazing and colourful were all those pages celebrating our superpowers of being weird, humorous and imperfectly perfect! If you have fallen in love with this collection and plan to make a page using it or the freebie, remember to share your superpowers over at The Nifty Pixel Fans & Friends group.

DIGI SCRAP PARADE | CAPTURE THE JOURNEY

Hi everyone, welcome to The Nifty Pixel, its so awesome to have you stop by!

It's been a long time between hops for me so I am very excited to be participating this month. How pretty is this palette, right?! I just love the versatility of this months theme too. It’s perfect for capturing life ups and downs in these tricky times and of course ideal for anyone on a journey of self discovery or a lazy weekend seaside. Whatever your journey this hop has you covered! hehe.

So here is my portion. I decided to do an artsy grungy style bold alpha and added in a set of slightly grungy solids. It totally needed a few elements to beef it up a bit too. Then I thought hey why not set a challenge for my team and see what interesting pages they could create with this mini! They rose to the challenge, I totally think they did an awesome job showcasing the alpha like they have!
Hope you enjoyed your stop over at my little patch of nift(y)ness...have fun on the hop collecting all the fabulous freebies along the way!

A NIFTY TOOL KIT | PHOTO MOUNTS NEW RELEASE

This week I’m releasing A NIFTY TOOL KIT | PHOTO MOUNTS & FRAMES. Perfect bundle for those of us that love to add a realistic touch to our digital snapshots. I have collated a few oldies but goodies and paired them with some new packs so check your stash before popping the bundle in your cart, you just might have a couple of these already.

The bundle includes a new set of MIXED VINTAGE FRAMES: which is filled with deckled edged mounts, some instant style frames and a few old grunged up ones. There is also a new set of ACETATE NEGATIVE FRAMES: these are so much fun. The pack includes an opaque set and transparent ones so you can invert your photos and create some realistic looking negatives to add to your page. You’ll find a 3 step tutorial in the pack on how to achieve this look and I promise you its easy peasy.

The remaining packs were pulled out of the vault and into the light again! V.1 & V.2 CONTACT SHEETS: These are just like a photographers proof sheet. You will find a series of groupings with several photo spots and a photographers editing brush and stamp set, they are tonnes of fun to play with. A TAD TORN V.1 PHOTO CLIPPING MASKS: So much fun to add a torn edge to a photo. GRUNGE IT UP V.1: these black frames with beautiful light flare filters included to really add a slightly damaged appearance to your photos. LIGHT FANTASTIC: a set of mounts with bokeh style overlays to really add a festive feel. STAMP STACKERS: Just a fun and different way to present your photos in grouped clusters. Lastly, A TOUCH OF RETRO V.1: a pack of 50’s & 60’s style photo mounts in sepia, black and white versions.
I bet you’ll find these very nifty, so go have fun with them and mix them up a bit to create really interesting pages. Have a great weekend and happy scrapping everyone!
