Robbie's Rockin' Red - Add-on packs and a FREEBIE

I've 2 new paper packs and 1 new set of 'word' tabs in my store, these coordinate with my latest kit 'Robbie's Rockin' Red.  Although the kit is themed for a teenage boy (you can read my previous post for details), when these add-on items are paired with the full kit, the kit becomes more versatile and more 'family' usable.  Check them out at my store (the image titles are linked).

And here's a close-up view of the patterned papers

Custom Digital Scrapbook Kit Design

I've a new digital scrapbook kit called Robbie's Rockin' Red.

This is Robbie.

Robbie was the inspiration for this kit; a customized kit for his mother (and my online friend), Claire.

I always wanted to do a custom designed kit based on someone's collection of photos (be it a birthday, a wedding, a family reunion, or some other event) or based on their specifications, so when Claire mentioned that she'd been looking for, but not finding, a kit with the 'correct' color red to match her son's favorite hoodie (hooded sweatshirt), a kit not too feminine to scrap layouts for a boy, I offered to design a kit for her.  Lucky for me, she accepted!

Working with photos of Robbie's hoodie, Claire's color choices, desired elements and paper styles, and a list of Robbie's interests, this kit was born.

A few elements in this kit were created by altering a designer resource base template but the rest of the kit is of my own creation using a combination of Photoshop styles, textures, brushes, actions and custom shapes; the sunglasses, ice cream cone, french fries, guitar, mobile phone, playing cards and the clock are all hand-drawn originals by me.

Although I designed this kit for a special teenage boy, the red, white, blue and gray colors make it usable for a number of other layout themes including, for many countries, patriotic events and celebrations.

The kit is now available for purchase at my E-Scape and Scrap store at The Nifty Boutique.  Options to purchase the papers and elements separately are also available - add-on packages coming soon.

I'd love to do more custom work!  If you like my designs and think you'd be interested in a digital scrapbook kit designed to your specifications and/or to match a set of your photographs, I'd love to hear from you; please feel free to send me an email - my contact information can be found by viewing my profile (the link at upper right, under my photo).
