If you are digital scrapbooker you probably own a ton of digital scrapbooking kits. Today I want to share a new challenge- Digital Scrapbooking Kits with a TWIST.
The twist is using a kit for something other than it was intended for. I have an example of this in my layout below. I used the new Everyday Birthday Wishes kit to digital scrapbook our latest weekend adventure with Brandon… his first time getting stitches.
This particular kit is perfect for birthdays or other celebrations but I loved the colors, and the word stamp brushes most of all. All of the words are SVG files so you can use them with an e-Cutter such as a Silhouette Cameo. I loved how this playful kit worked great for my pictures detailing the ER visit.
I tried to stick with just the kit but one of my favorite things about My Digital Studio is finding digital art that coordinates with my layout outside of a kit. Sometimes it’s a challenge but when you use the Global Search tool it makes finding other digital art easy with keywords.
You may be wondering what my lil’ man did? Once again everything was just fine and in a split second I found myself on my way to the ER with Brandon. He was so excited when he came home from school on Friday. He couldn’t wait to get in the woods and work on his fort. He had just told me it’s the coolest fort ever because it’s two stories. I didn’t give it a second thought until he came running inside with blood dripping down his arm screaming for a band-aid.
One look at the laceration and I knew we were in for a new adventure with Brandon. Let me just say that my Brandon has a big fear of needles. Once he was told we were going to the ER and “stitches” could be in the plan a major freak out occurred. Jeez.
Of course both grandma’s were here and also brought up if he had his Tetanus updated. That freak out wasn’t better and made getting in the car a little more difficult.
Thankfully we had a fantastic female physician that worked with Brandon and calmed his nerves. She was amazing. His tetanus was up to date and three stitches made everything better. Once it was all complete, Brandon was giddy. It was funny hearing him telling the story of his new battle wound and how he survived. Oh that boy!
It’s your turn to give this challenge a try. The great part of this challenge is creating outside the box with your digital kits.
