Welcome to my world!

Let me share some of my digital art with you. For me, painting is a passion, and digital painting is a new and exciting medium. I pour my heart into my work because I love what I do! You'll notice that many of my page kits are filled with natural things, things you might see on a walk through the woods or a quiet meadow. Leaves, twigs, feathers, flowers, mushrooms, birds, and butterflies, all find their way into my page kits! I hope my artwork can inspire you to create beautiful and unique layouts!

You can find my designs at DigitalScrapbookPlace.com along with many other beautiful products, created by the team of talented designers I work with!

Quick Click Inspiration Chat - 8 pm (DSP time)

This time of year as the Holidays approach, life starts getting pretty hectic! I thought it would be nice to take time to reflect on those things that make the season worthwhile. So for our regular scrappers the inspiration this week is:

Something I Am Thankful For
I'm sure if we look hard enough, we can all find something to be thankful for in our lives, even if it's just that we've gotten our Christmas shopping done early for a change! (don't I wish!) We can be thankful for our families, for friends, for losing the ten pounds we gained LAST Christmas, the possibilities are endless!

For those of you working on a "ME" book, here's one that's a little bit tougher:
Something I Am Proud Of
If you're anything like me, you'll have a tendency to dwell on your shortcomings and overlook your virtues, so I thought it would be good to remind ourselves once in a while just how wonderful we are!

The Quick Click we'll be using tonight is Diagonal Dream. This fun template holds up to four photos and has space for journaling and a title. I’ll be giving this out free to everyone who attends my chat!


So grab your photos and meet me in the chat room at 8 pm tonight, can't wait to "see" you there!!

Share The Luv Challenge November 2 - 15

I made a promise to myself last month that I was going to try and finish at least one layout per day. (I got 42 done in all, yay me)!!  And not only did I vow to do a layout a day, but also to work on completing the half dozen half-finished albums I have collecting virtual dust on my hard drive! I've been concentrating on my daughter's Girl Scout and School albums, so I've been doing a LOT of layouts lately involving kids,  field trips, and teen angst! Which leads me of course, to the reason for designing this new pair of page kits, because as much as I love creating beautiful nature-inspired kits, they are not necessarily suited to a page about a group of teens making faces and clowning around on a bus to Chicago!

Featured Kit - My Unique Teen
Don't let the name fool you, this kit is not just for teens! I chose neutral colors and elements that could be used for just about anything. The browns and greens will work great for guys as well as gals, and the torn paper frame adds a touch of fun and dimension to your pages, with lots of OOB possibilities!


Posting Bonus - My Sweet Teen
This companion kit adds dark denim blue to the mix, as well as some cute and funky paper elements. I think this one would be great for "best friend" pages, don’t you?

I’m giving away My Sweet Teen as a posting bonus in my new Share The Luv Challenge, running now through November 15. You can get all the details HERE.


Here’s a layout I did using my new kits. I love the pop of color against the neutral background!

Quick Click Inspiration Chat – November 1st, 8 pm

Yay, it's time for another chat! I've chosen an interesting theme for this week:

Something Unique About Me That Most People Don't Know

I thought this would be a great page idea to include in our "ME" books. Just think of all those interesting, fun, strange, quirky, things about us that might be lost if we don't put them down some where. (Okay, so there are probably a few things about us that we'd like to forget)! But I'm sure there are amazing things that we all want to share, so put on your thinking caps, grab your photos, and meet me in the chat room tonight at 8 pm so we can all find out what's interesting about YOU!

The chat freebie tonight is "Three On The Side" I've left lots of room for journaling on this one for all your amazing stories!

Featured Kit – Glorious Autumn Sunflower October 19 – November 1st

I love Autumn, and here's a pair of page kits that are perfect for scrapping the season that is near and dear to my heart! I wanted to do somthing that had a little different color palette than the usual fall oranges and reds, and I have to say that I LOVE the way these turned out! The blue and purple flowers really add a punch of color to these beautiful kits!
Glorious Autumn Sunflower features lovely soft golds and greens with summer sky blue and the vivid blue of the caryopteris flower. I love the versatility of the matching frames, and this kit is generic enough to be used for just about anything!

Glorious Autumn Aster has deep tones of rust, ivy green and aubergine, and the golden woods background and natural elements are perfect for scrapping those sunny autumn days!

Quick Click Chat October 18, 8pm (DSP time)

Woo hoo! It’s time for another Quick Click Inspiration Chat! our theme this week will be:

"Something About Me That I Have Passed On To The Next Generation"

Woo, that's a mouthful isn't it? I thought this would be an interesting thing to include in my "ME" book. I know that there are lots of traits of mine that I see in my daughter. Her quirky sleep habits, fondness for cats, artistic ability, and floppy earlobes all come from me! So what did your family inherit from you? Sports ability? A sense of humor? Passion for cooking? Who knows, maybe some day one of your great grandkids will look through your book and say, "Aha! So THAT'S where I got my passion for shrimp fried rice!" (just kidding) :)

At the chat tonight, I’ll be giving away my brand new Quick Click template “Beside The Bracket” to use for your layout. And remember, the inspiration is just a suggestion to get you started, you can choose any topic you like for your page. And when you’ve finished, don’t forget to post your layout in the Quick Click Gallery so we can all oooh and aaah over your layout!


PS - For those of you who aren’t able to attend the chat tonight, but would still like to play along, you can find this Quick Click HERE in the DSP store, along with many other beautiful products!

I hope to see YOU there!!

New Page Kits “Zoo Babies” and “Zoo Babies Too" June 28, 2010

Featured Kit June 29 - July 12
Zoo Babies

From the time my daughter was little she’s loved animals of every kind. Over the years our house has gradually been filled with dozens of stuffed wolves, cheetahs, giraffes, skunks, elephants, and every other animal imaginable. Of course I was constantly being pestered to take her to the zoo, and I have many fond memories of the times we spent there. I enjoyed reminiscing about those happy times while I was working on this fun pair of page kits! My featured kit, “Zoo Babies” come with a cute baby chimpanzee, cuddly tiger cub, and precious baby pachyderm! The color palette is chocolate brown, jungle green, and ecru.

Posting Bonus - Zoo Babies Too

“Zoo Babies Too” includes a frisky zebra colt, curious baby giraffe, and sweet baby kangaroo. I hope you’ll enjoy using these fun page kits as much as I did designing them!
