ISSUE #15 APRIL 2013
I don't care what all the scientific research says, I am a busy mom, and I just love multi-tasking. There is nothing better than hearing the laundry running while I am busy making cupcakes for the class party. Or even better, knowing that the crockpot is busily bringing about a scrumptious meal while I am being the teen scene taxi. The negative scientific data doesn't take a bit away from the rush doing two things at once gives me. So, last month, I got to thinking about all the amazing digital art kits I have. I want them to pull double duty in my life too! I needed to decorate my entryway for the season on the cheap, so I looked to my iScrapKits. And then it hit me, I didn't need to run to the craft store to make my entry seasonally sensational. All I had to do is print out some of the stunning papers, embellishments and alphabets I all ready owned and TADA! I'll show you how it all turned out in the tips section. For now, here is a peak into our Artists' offerings for Spring.

Artists' Corner
Brittany Stager is the creative genius behind Pink Peacock Designs. And since her kit, "A Breath of Fresh Air", perfectly captures the essence of spring, I thought she was a perfect fit for our April Newsletter. Here is a snippet from her bio to get to know her. I think you will be impressed just like we are!

"I only discovered digital scrapbooking in January 2008, and became instantly addicted, I mean how can you not be? I used to be a traditional scrapper, you know, the messy paper, glue and glitter everywhere. But when I discovered digital it was like a match made in heaven. Since I work (my 9-5 job) as a graphic designer, the whole design thing came pretty easily. I opened my blogstore in June 2008 to sell my kits, and haven't looked back since. I love the idea of people creating meaningful and creative layouts of the most important things in their lives using my kits. I couldn't be more excited to be joining such a wonderful store as iScrapbook.com. Enjoy"

Tips & Tricks
So here it is, my attempt at St. Patrick's day entryway decor. Pretty sweet right? Since I all ready owned the gorgeous "Irish Blessings" Kit, it was simple. A little glue, old fashioned scissors and my trusty printer made pretty much all of this possible. I cannot explain the joy having a digital scrapbooking kit do double duty as home decor gave me. It may be something just I experience, but I doubt it. I know I am not the only one out there who loves to save time and money by getting two things out of one. Here is how I did pulled it off:
