the kit is called "writer's block" and it's the first by the uber-talented ♥EMMA♥ of just a girl with ideas! em is an amazing scrapper, blogger, designer, crafter and brand new mum (!!!) who is just starting to make her own vintage-inspired kits that she will be selling. my lovely friend linda saw this notice looking for people to "test drive" the kit and of course KNEW how much i would love it, i wrote in to volunteer and em was kind enough to send me a preview version to play around with, and it's a DREAM: the images are beautiful and sooooooo easy to use both technically and aesthetically.
i've been whipping up a few hybrid projects that i'll be showing off in a bit when the kit officially debuts, so stay tuned for those, i think they are kind of cool. in the meantime, i couldn't wait to give you a little "preview"...especially since it meant i could have a bit of a play at the same time.
a tiny little milestone note for me: this is the very first all-digi project in which i have used 100% photoshop for EVERYTHING... (instead of hopping between photoshop and my old standby broderbund printshop!) ...a feat which i attribute to this inspiring book that really helped me understand the tools--and the "layers" system--of photoshop a lot better, giving me waaaaaaay more confidence!!! ♥
ETA friday, 4-8: please note that i was test-driving a prototype version of the gorgeous "writer's block" kit; the actual kit may vary slightly when it goes on sale, i will keep you posted! xolb
