HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope all of you have a fabulous day.  My family is postponing Thanksgiving.  Since we live in Denmark, we don't have an actual holiday so I wait til the weekend to do the dinner.  It just seems hard to do it when its a normal school/work day.  BUT, I am looking forward to Black Friday internet sales so I can order stuff for Christmas (I just have it shipped to my mom!!!).

So, here is a little kit that we are releasing today.  20% off today and Friday.  AND, SHHHH....but you need to go sign up to The DigiChick NEWSLETTER....you never know what you'll find in there!!!





It's a sweet kit full of Edwardian ephemera about traveling or cruising.  Loved the romance of the Edwardian look with the bright colors.  We hope you like it too!!!

Just a side note, be on the lookout HERE on our blog over the weekend!!!

Here are some layouts made by our wonderful CT:

About Giraffes, Tutorials and Freebies...

Today we have a brand new digital stamp set at The Digichick, Giraffes. Aren't they cute? All 3 of those guys were hand-drawn by the super talented Yvonne Banham and then made their way onto digital land by us. The stamps come in .abr, .png, and layered .psd and .tiff formats.



 For yet another idea of what to do with your digital stamps, I have put together a second video tutorial. This tutorial will show you an easy way to turn your digital stamps into a worn, distressed digital stickers. These stickers are a great way to add some grunge to your kit elements. They also work great for making artsy cards and well, just about anything else you set your mind to. Here is what my final stamp will look like:

To help you along the tutorial, I have created a set of distressed brushes that you can use for giving your digital stamps/stickers a worn look. (click image to download)



For this tutorial I have also used a texture from the very talented Caleb found at Lost and Taken.  His stuff is amazing, so make sure to go check him out!

And finally, here is the tutorial. Enjoy!



If you have any questions about this tutorial or freebie, please leave us a comment and we will get back to you ASAP. Hugs and happy creating!
