Hello there, everyone!! One of the new The Nifty Pixel May digi kits is called “Wanderlust”. What a gorgeous kit for those travel photos!! I absolutely adore the designs!! If you click on the kit preview image, it will directly take you to the ScrapStacks store where you can do some rerious digi kit shopping :-)!!!
Like I wrote on my previous post, I now print these digi papers at home with my Epson A3 color printer. So practical and so easy!!! And if you look at the end results, there is hardly any difference to a bought “real” patterned paper. The only difference is that my 12×12 inch is about 8 millimeters short of the proper size. But I can totally live with that. And if you combine these papers for example with regular cardstock, no one will notice the difference :).
I´ve scrapped about my January 2015 trip to CHA this time. What a trip and what an experience!!! And I so much would like to do another trip to USA some time!!! Need to start saving some money, I think :).
Did you notice the cool world map and the b&w camera image on the layout? Well, they are from the brush & stamp kit as well as from the main kit and I´ve printed them on Rub-Onz Transfer film. And that means I can go and create my own “rub-ons” from the digi images. That is sooo cool! It costed me a little fortune to get my hands on the transfer film as I ordered it all the way from the US and the shipping costed quite much. See, I was not able to find a similar film/foil here at that time. But apparently there are similar products available in Europe too… my hubs did some internet searching and found a product that looks pretty similar and it´s sold at Amazon. Might need to give that a try later. But in the meanwhile I will keep on using the Grafix Rub-Onz transfer film sheets :).
While testing that film, I naturally did everything wrong the first time and could not get it work. Luckily, there is some help to be found on YouTube! So I tried again and did exactly what the lady showed on the video and it worked! And now I cannot stop to thing of all the possibilities this product offers me. I can make my own rub-ons for my artworks. And I can even do colors!! How cool is that!!! Cannot wait to play more with this product! It is a perfect match for The Nifty Pixel digi kits designs!! You need to give it a try :)!!!
Ok, got a bit off topic there, I guess. Should have been talking more about the layout, right? Let me just add that these digi designs are gorgeous and so much fun to work with!! Love, love, love the travel theme!!
Wishing you all a happy scrappy time with Em´s kits!!!!
