New Fall Kits, New Commercial Use & Freebie!!

The first day of fall is September 23; next Tuesday. It’s still in the 90’s during the day here where I live (which is hotter than usual), but I’ve seen reports of snow across the US and Canada. Crazy!

Autumn is always one of my favorite times of the year. I love the pretty colors and the cooler weather. I also look forward to long pants and cozy sweaters. I have a brand new colorful autumn themed digital scrapbook kit available this week that I think is perfect for scrapping all of your autumn, pumpkin patch and apple orchard themed photos! Hello Fall is 20% off this week during Fresh Fruit HERE at Scrap Orchard. And if you purchase Hello Fall by September 24th, you’ll get my newest addition to my Fruity collection, Fruity – Apple, for FREE!!

I love to browse the paper scrapbooking boards on Pinterest. Lately I have been seeing and pinning some really pretty pages using vellum. I decided to create some fun digital vellum sheets to coordinate with my new Hello Fall kit. I have them here as a gift for you! I hope you enjoy them! I found that for me, they work especially well using a shadow in linear burn mode, or by changing the blending modes over other backgrounds. Have lots of fun playing with them!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!!

My computer has been on the fritz this month. It’s been really frustrating not being able to create as quickly as I'm used to working. My husband has ordered some parts and it should be back to it’s super happy speedy self in a couple of days! Yay!!! Since I'm going to be back to working fullspeed, I need some theme suggestions!! I’d love it if you’d leave a comment and let me know what theme you’d like to see next!

Before I sign off, I have a little gift for you! I really love to scrap with patterned papers like notebook paper, accounting paper, grids, and school handwriting print. I included a circular handwriting paper in the Nerd Alert kit. (You can see it in Roxana’s layout posted just above.) But I wanted more options. So I created a whole pack of school lined handwriting print papers. Enjoy!
