I'm super excited (and totally geeked out) to share that I'm going to be working with Designer Digitals designing templates, word art and who knows what else in the coming months. Designing digital templates is something I've been wanting to do for a really long time, but never had the time, the knowledge, or the confidence to just bust a move, and get digi with it.
And now, apparently, I do.
Beginning this weekend, Designer Digitals will be carrying my CZ Design brand of digital products. For now, my focus will be on template design, both for layouts and album projects. You can expect the clean and simple design style that I've embraced from day 1 in scrapdom to be featured in my digital designs.
Each template will be rooted in solid design, including journaling blocks with lots of leading to enhance readability, thoughtful use of space, and even some design or journaling tips tossed into the template itself.
The layout above comes from my first template set, By The Numbers Set 1, (click here for supplies) which goes on sale this Saturday after 6 p.m. EST.
This set covers ages/numbers 1 through 10. My initial idea was to scrapbook about my kids and their ages, but the amazing design team at Designer D had other ideas.
First off, these 8-1/2 x 11 designs are super easy to convert to 12 x 12 (I provide instructions in the template set). Check out these intepretations that don't involve kid age angle or 8-1/2 x 11 sizes.

This one celebrates an anniversary, and is by Brittany:
I feel like a mama who has just had a baby, and my babies are now growing up in the form of totally cool digital memory documents. I mean, I would have never thought to do an anniversary page with it. And seeing how Dan and I are coming up on 18 years in a few weeks, it's a good thing that I've also got By The Numbers SET 2:
(Set 2 gives you the next group of numbers.)
(See supply lists here for the layout above).
In the realm of digital scrapbooking, I'm still a relative newbie. True, I've been a digi hybrid girl since the beginning, and I still plan to combine the two forms, mix them and merge them. But I am totally inspired to save and share stories with a little bit of Photoshop on my side.
Look for these template sets and one new single template design this weekend (preview coming later this week!)
And thanks to the creative team at Designer Digitals for making me feel so very welcome, and rocking my templates.
