New Kits + A Sale This Weekend

I have an awesome new release in my digital scrapbooking shop today over at Design House Digital: Office Space. It is part of a collaboration kit that I created with the wonderful Gennifer Bursett. It was a fun kit to work on, and Gennifer was awesome to work with. We chose lots of fun retro inspired colors and patterns to work with, and I love how the collaboration turned out!

En Route – Digital Scrapbook Collaboration

I have an awesome new release in my digital scrapbooking shop today over at Design House Digital. It is part of a collaboration kit that I created with Agnes Biro. It was such an awesome kit to work on. I love the color palette that Agnes and I chose and the traveling theme was fun. I really tried to push myself out of my design comfort zone with this kit, and I am glad that I did.

Here are a few previews from my part of the En Route kit:

The awesome and very talented decorators over at DHD created some beautiful layouts using the collaboration. Here is a little peak at a few of them (to see more of them, head over to the DHD blog).

To go along with the En Route kit I created some photo masks and frames that coordinate. The phototoshop clipping masks were inspired by all of the amazing anthropology (LOVE that store!) emails I get. The are subtle with a fun twist. Here is a preview of this add-on kit:

Here is an up close look at one of the clipping masks in action:

Fun right? Oh, and that photo is my niece Peyton. It is one of her senior portraits (she graduated last year). She is almost done with her second semester at BYU-Idaho. She has lots of fun adventures and journeys ahead of her.

Anyways…back to the masks! Right now they are 30% off, but this weekend they will be free. Yep, that’s right, 100% FREE! I will also have a few other kits on sale for $1 and my entire shop will be %25 off. I will post more about this tonight or tomorrow though :).

 

Scrapbooking in September

Well, September has come to a close, and fall is here to stay! Time to catch up on what I scrapbooked this month!

I have a bit of a smorgasbord of layouts this month. I have a halloween layout using Echo Parks awesome apothecary line, a layout of my niece Chelsea using products from Cosmo Cricket, a layout of my niece Cadison using products from The Queen of Quirk and some fun hybrid bookmarks made using supplies from several of the designers over at JessicaSprague.com. It was a fun scrapbooking month!

What Happened to Summer?

Mr. SquirrelSummer went by so fast and I feel like we got gypped in the sunshine department. Don’t get me wrong, I love the rain, but I wish that the sun could have stayed around just a little longer. Well, summer was still fun, despite the lack of sun. I haven’t been very good at blogging over the summer… so here is a little summary of my summer events:

First… I went camping with my family and, as is the case every year, had a blast. It is always fun to be able to catch up with everyone while sitting around the campfire and eating good food. I am already looking forward to next years camping trip. I still haven’t uploaded and edited all of the pictures that I took at camping… but I did edit some of a cute little squirrel as well as some of my nieces.

Here is layout I did with the squirrel photos:

Happy Camper LO

Cute squirrelly right?? He is eating a piece of watermelon… who knew that squirrels ate watermelon? Crazy! I am just glad he let me get close enough to get some good pictures.

At the end of camping my niece Darbi asked me to help her with a little photo project for a contest her dentist is holding. Here is the result:

: #  =  : )    (brace face = happy face)

I think it turned out pretty cute :)

When I got home from camping I did several photo shoots and got my photography website (www.photography.ericacoombs.com) up and running, as well as my design portfolio (www.ericacoombs.com). I still need to add more photos to my photography site, but I am happy with how they have turned out.

Last, but not least, this summer I took a digital design class focused on creating products for digital scrapbooking. For the class I created a camping kit… here are a few previews of the kit:

Roughin' It Elements

Roughin' It - Patterned Papers

Roughin' It - Solid Paper

 

It was a really fun class, and I am glad that I took it. All in all, summer was great, hopefully fall will be just as great!
