What's New?: Britt-ish Designs Shop

I breathed a sigh of relief this evening to see that Brittish Designs has finally opened up a website! I thought I was going to have to wait until tomorrow, August 27, 2010 for the offical grand opening. The anticipation has been overwhelming which is truely a sign that I need some serious help with my digital scrapbooking addiction.

Ten years ago, my best friend Michelle told me over the phone that she was addicted to this new creative outlet call scrapbooking. I live on the East Coast and she lived on the West Coast so I was not really convinced by phone that this is something truely addicting until I tried it for myself a year later.

 I have found out that buying scrapbook kits with gorgeous papers and embellishments fulfills my needs for scrapbooking. Creating the layout is just half of the fun. The other half is the collecting of goodies, you know, building my stash of elements like squirrels gathering acorns. I began digital scrapbooking a yeaer ago and fell in love with it. No more glue, no mor carrying around heavy boxes of papers and tools, and no more waste! With digital, I can re-do and re-use all of my work!

 Once I discovered kits by Brittish Designs, I realized many of her creations are must haves for my collection. A year ago, I thought the paper and hybrid scrapbooking attraction made sense. We all had tangible items to buy and collect. I did not realize this could translate over to digital images as well!

Check out Britt's store, blog, shop, and gallery of her own. I find it much easier to browse the kits and the layout gallery here compared to the shop she formerly sold her products in.

Here is a page I made with a Britt-ish Designs and Sahlin Studio collab kit Land of Fantasy. The template is Juno Designs Xmas freebie. (click here for

Are you an avid digital scrapbooker or did you just get lost and land here on my blog by chance?!

Vintage Disney: California Adventure

Layouts created with Vintage Carnival kit by shalin Sutdio and Jennifer Barrette ( The Paradise Pier portion of Califronia Adventure is being redesigned to have the look and feel of a victorian era carnival. The pier is currently designed to resemble California's boardwalks and piers. There are games, shops, fun food like conr dogs and giant turkey legs, and of course, great thrill rides! My husband and I took the girls to Disnely and and California Adventure for their first time last July.
