Designer Resources

This is a list of awesome resources for digital scrapbooking designers and also for customers:

1. Digiscrap Designer - http://www.digiscrapdesigner.com/forums/index.php
For $35 a year, you can join and get very good tutorials on making elements, etc., useful for designers. Also info on packaging, copyright, piracy, kit ideas, a mentor program and more. I just joined Friday and am still figuring out what all they have to offer.

2. Atomic Cupcake - http://atomiccupcake.com/
They have great PS and PSE actions (some free, some $3-4 each) that can be used commercially as long as you follow their terms which includes saying "Special thanks to Atomic Cupcake for the actions." in your description. I just picked up 5 more actions Friday. : )

3. Digi Shop Talk http://www.digishoptalk.com/boards/index.php
You are free to post links to our site and your products, mention sales and more. Also a good resource for what's hot and happening in the digital scrap community. I joined tonight and made several posts about our charity kit, free downloads, and challenges at Digitals.

4. Scrapbooking Top 50 http://www.scrapbookingtop50.com.au/digitaltopsites/in.php?id=20
Take a look at what is being offered at some other digital scrapping sites to see what is trendy as far as colors, styles, new products, etc. Not everything has to look the same of course (and definitely DON'T copy, just get inspiration), but its always good to have an idea of what is hot at the moment.

5. Digital Scrapbook Previews http://www.digitalscrapbookpreviews.com/
You can post kit previews here including descriptions and links as an additional way to advertise. Membership is $12 a year or $20 for a lifetime.

Please let me know if you have some to add to this list!

Charity kit release @ Digitals

Digitals is proud to announce the July 1 release of its newest charity kit: On Angels' Wings. This is truly Mega - 380 Mb unzipped of lovely elements with a coordinated color scheme and every penny of the $10 (even the PayPal fees) will be donated to SANDS, a stillbirth and neonatal support group in Austrailia. Sadly miscarriage has had a huge impact on the lives of many of our Digitals designers so wanted to support this worthy cause.

Thanks to Veronica Culley for this preview using fonts LD Letterpress, LD Warm Heart and LD Elementary.
