My business is called Pixels and Pix Digital Design by Corie Farnsley. (If you're not a digital scrapbooker or inclined to do much design for the web, the word "pixels" probably isn't a part of your daily vocabulary like it is for me.) Basically, the combination of pixels (the little dots that combine to make images on your screen) and pix (pictures, of course) is the base for my favorite hobby ever: digital scrapbooking.
My business for now will be focused on selling digital scrapbooking kits. But in the future, I also plan to sell layered photoshop templates for scrapbook layouts as well as a couple of other projects I have made for myself but that might be useful for other scrapbookers. So stay tuned for those developments in the future!
My first kit is actually a series of kits called Graphic Nature. It includes:
- A paper pack with 18 papers
- Three element packs loaded with elements and an alpha set
- A Mega Pack (shown at left), which includes all four kits mentioned above (paper and elements)
Graphic Nature is a kit inspired by the colors we most frequently find in nature - greens, blues, browns and creams. I have found over the years of doing digital scrapbooking that finding kits with these bold, rich colors is actually not an easy task! Yet, I have thousands of photos of my family hiking in state parks, vacationing in Colorado and working in the woods at our lot that really call for great papers in these rich, natural tones. So I decided I would make a kit myself!
I think you will find the kit to be very affordable, and if you are a paper scrapbooker already, you'll find that going the digital route can be much more affordable than paper! (Although, I will admit that learning digital scrapbooking is a bit of a time commitment. For that, I'd highly recommend taking a class or two at JessicaSprague.com!)
Anyway, read more about my brand-new kit on my brand-new blog for my brand–new business! And watch that blog for more about digital scrapbooking. I don't know how much longer this blog will be active. I'm considering making my new blog my primary one. So if you subscribe to the RSS feed or e-mail notifications for this blog, you might want to do so for my new one as well!
Join me in a big happy dance as I launch my first product! I am SUPER excited! :o)
(Oh, and if you're wondering where the "graphic" part of the name comes from: It's from my scrapbooking style. I would be a considered a graphic-style scrapbooker, meaning my lines are usually clean, I don't typically tilt my photos, I like simplicity and I am attracted to rich colors. So, since the theme is nature and the style is graphic, we have "Graphic Nature.")
