CU Scratchy & Stamped Alpha Brushes and Yubby Dubbies Font

I've been into typography lately in a major way, and I guess I was just in the mood to play with lettering this week instead of creating a full kit. The end result of that fonty kinda mood are the following three products, now available in my Scrap Orchard store for 20% off (until 9/5).

 Commercial Use Scratched Alpha Brushes 1 

 Included in this digital scrapbook brush pack is a full uppercase alphabet with numbers and ! ? @ & in .abr Photoshop brush format. Great for commercial use, but totally okay for personal use, too!

 Commercial Use Stamped Alpha Brushes 1

 Included in this digital scrapbook brush pack is a full uppercase alphabet with numbers and ! ? @ & in .abr Photoshop brush format. Also, perfect for commercial use, but way okay for personal use, too!

 Next up, I've finally gotten around to creating a new font! Also 20% off until the 5th. 

Our very own Cheryl of Fiddle Dee Dee at Scrap Orchard had a birthday recently, and I jokingly call her my "sweet potatah", since she is just the cutest Southern thang there is. I whipped up a little cyber birthday card for her and used my new font.

Lastly, we're having a super sweet Summer Rewind Sale over at The Orchard! That means that if you didn't have the means to purchase something that released over the summer, or simply just forgot, you have a second chance to grab it at a discounted price! Check out your favorite designers' stores and see what they've got to offer! I've released the following products this summer, all of which you can snag at 20% off for a second time around!

Hellllllo, everyone! I'm a day late with my blog post, but just as excited as ever to share this week's new release with you! It's a rare occurrence that I create a feminine kit that DOESN'T have pink in it, but I must say, this one was a blast to make! I love the contrast between the deep blue, the bold purples and the variety of pale limes and turquoise. Have a look!

Included in this digital scrapbook kit are 10 patterned papers, 5 solids, one uppercase alphabet with numbers and some punctuation, 1 arrow rub on stamp, 1 vellum arrow, 1 banner, 10 themed word strips, 2 acrylic brads, 3 buttons, 1 flower branch, 1 fabric leaf, 1 doodled leaf, 3 layered flowers, 5 doodled flowers, 1 ricrac flower, 3 frames, 5 acrylic hearts, 1 doodled hexagon shape, 2 multicolored paint smears, 1 doodled paisley, 3 straight ribbons, 2 ricrac, 2 bow ribbons, 1 staple with shadowed version, 1 doodled scallop, 1 set of stitches, 1 string bow, 1 looped string and 2 unique doodled swirl shapes.

Hey, remember me? If not, that's okay... I disappeared for a little while there. Life gets so busy here during the summer months, but I'm finally back to share a brand new kit with you! Included in this week's Fresh Fruit at Scrap Orchard is my newest digital scrapbook kit, Blossom.

Now, I'm not normally one to work with earth tones, but I gave it a shot and actually had a lot of fun!

Blossom is feminine without being overly so, and its colors lend themselves well to so many different scrapbooking possibilities. To compliment the kit, I also created an element pack that I call "Sprayed Stuff". Such an original name, right? ;) I'm a huge fan of layering and stacking on my digital scrapbook pages, so I think these are super fun to work with.

BONUS: If you purchase the Blossom kit within its first week of release, you'll automatically get the Blossom Sprayed Stuff FREE. Awesome, yes?

I now present some really excellent layouts by a handful of most excellent ladies:

That's all I've got for you this week, friends. I'm looking forward to diving back into the digital community and doing a lot more memory keeping!
