Over at Plain Digital Wrapper we decided we wanted to bring something new to the shop and the forum. We’re unveiling our new mix&match sale today. And along with the sale is a new challenge to match.
Happy Hour is our fresh new mix & match presentation of goodies. We’ll be having these great sales every month starting on the 25th and running until the 1st of the next month. For that week only, you can mix and match to make your perfect cocktail of papers, elements and more for a custom collection. Each pack in our shop will be ONE that’s right $1 dollar during the sale.
We’ve also designed a coordinating challenge in the forum where you’ll get a bonus participation prize that coordinates with the Happy Hour colors each month just for playing along…and of course you get a wrapper point.
Up this month we had a gorgeous color palette and a beach theme. The colors just inspired me and took me straight to the sandy beaches here in Michigan. I loved the blues and had so much making my packs.
Catch Waves is all about surf, sand and sun!
Paper pack includes 10 patterned backgrounds.
Element pack includes 51 fun beachy elements.
Solid pack includes 6 plain solids and 6 ombre gradient

Hey everyone. Just wanted to stop in and share a layout I created. I love paper scrapping. I always have. I’ve just never been one to haul out all the supplies, cut paper, glue etc. to create my layouts. I don’t do clutter, I don’t do messes, so paper scrapping was a no-go for me. When I found digi I knew it was the “one” for me. *insert cheesy love song*
I still love checking out all the beautiful and awe-inspiring paper pages. I even love a lot of the sketches the paper scrappers have. So it’s often that I find myself wanting to recreate what I see….just in digi form.
I am here today to share a paper to digi transformation I did back in April. I don’t have video for this one, but it took me quite some time. Getting the shadows and butterflies just right was my Achilles heel. lol. That’s the fun part of digi, you can redo and undo and redo over and over until you like it.
The layout I used as inspiration, I found on Scrapbook.com. I fell in love with the butterflies instantly, since they are one of my favorite elements to add on my pages. And in my products too, lol, I don’t think you’ll find many of my kits without at least one butterfly fluttering about.

This layout is gorgeous. From the clustering to the monochromatic color scheme. And that darling photo just sealed the deal. I had to have this look transformed into a digi layout for myself. So I set out to make it happen. With this one, I wanted to whole design so I started with the background and papers and the overall layout design. I created that in Photoshop. I added my photo and used a journal card for the word art. Now it was time for the fun….all those gorgeous butterflies. That part took some time. Some recoloring of a few butterflies and a lot of shadows on their separate layers (with your layer palette open you can right click on the drop shadow effect and navigate to create own layer, this puts your shadow on it’s own layer so that you can warp and transform). I added in a few extra flowers and some stars for added effect. Because go big or go home right?! lol
I used my kit, Best Friends 4Ever for all of it, except the butterflies were CU and recolored. I had a lot of fun transforming the paper layout into digi. Have you tried to transform a paper layout before? How do you think I did? I love reading comments, so don’t be shy!
Have a great day!
