It’s a big day, friends. Today I am launching my own online shop to sell my digital download products. Those products include: scrapbooking templates, digital stamps, electronic cutting files, pocket page cards for scrapbooking, digital scrapbooking papers, and PDFs of my two books. Before I make you read too much, check out my video to learn more!
Note: there are a few items in the video that are not in the shop presently! I am not actually selling my Simon Says Stamp physical stamps as digital. I was a little overzealous with my uploads. All of my content going forward will be exclusively designed for my shop! My physical stamps and dies are a separate branch of my product lines.
And here’s the good part:
You can save 40% off your entire purchase by using the code: EZCZ40 at check out! The coupon is valid until 11:59 EDT on July 19.
YOU HAVE TO USE THE CODE TO GET THE DEAL! Deal?
I have been working on this little shop for a number of months and while I am still working to upload some of my digital collection (I have nine year’s worth of products!), I have many things for you to check out!
I need to give the warmest of thank yous to Katie Pertiet, owner and chief creative at Designer Digitals. Katie has been so supportive of me over the years and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to have worked for her. Truly, thank you, Katie!
SPEAKING OF DESIGNER DIGITALS: To all of my past customers who’ve shopped my collection at Designer Digitals, I do not have access to any of those purchase records. I was not the shop owner, and so, if you have issues with past purchases, I will do my best to remedy the issue and we can work together. You can always contact Designer Digitals but just know my products are no longer part of their store system.
On the 1st of each month I will have new releases in my shop. They will always launch at 20% off and that price will be good for the first seven days of its release. I will also have four quarterly sales each year, the next one slated for October 2020, and those quarterly sales will offer 40% off the entire shop. For this month’s new releases, they are simply going to be 40% off through July 19.
NEW FOR 2020: Starting today and going forward, all of my core templates will be available in both 12 x 12 and 8.5 x 11. When you purchase a template, two sizes will come in the package but the price will remain for that of a single template. Personally, I am a hard core letter-sized scrapbooker, but many folks like to use 12 x 12s. It can be tricky to convert the size up so I’m going to do it for you where applicable. I am not going to go back retroactively and do this, but… going forward, I’m all in!
But the shop is also stocked with all of my favorite designs. Like this one: (click on the image to see in the shop!)
And this one, which I used to create a hybrid layout:

I so appreciate all of my long-time customers from Designer Digitals and hope to invite new folks to check out my shop!
I will also have guest designers coming here to my blog each month to work with some of my products and that’s a very exciting thing for me as well.
I will be adding tutorials to my YouTube channel in the coming weeks and months to teach you my approach to both digital and hybrid scrapbooking!
I will also be adding Traveler’s Notebook templates in the coming weeks and other alternative memory keeping products.
As many of you know (but if you’re new, you may not!), I’m mostly a hybrid scrapbooker, meaning I incorporate digital processes into my memory keeping. Although the two new layouts I just did above? Fully digital and I have to tell you: they were fun to create! Again, I will be adding tutorials on basics in the coming weeks!
For now, thanks so much for your interest in my shop!
Woohoo Cathy!! Very excited, congrats on the new shop 🙂
Cathy Zielske says
Thanks, Kinjal! Much work remains but… it’s there and hopefully it will be a good thing!
Congrats, Cathy! I am a long-time customer and student in your classes—watching your family grow-up along with my own. Excited for all the amazing changes you have made. You are proof that the second phase of life (grown kids) can have amazing things in store. Inspirational! All the best to you.
Cathy Zielske says
Hey Lori, well that’s something, right? Making that second act productive and meaningful. I think the strange thing is: I didn’t realize how much more expensive kids would be once they were adults! (Lol, my son is still in college, so… the work must continue!) Thanks for leaving a comment today!
This just might get me scrapping again!
woo hoo!!! Can’t wait to check out all the goodness. Long time fan of all CZ products.
This totally made my day. You have no idea. Thank you!
Debby Canady says
Congratulations! I am a long time fan. I see you have moved out of the kitchen.
This is very exciting news and I know it will go over big!
So excited for you!
This is FABULOUS, Cathy. Well done, YOU! I am grateful for your regular dose of inspiration. Thank you for all that you do. xoL
How exciting for you! Loving your YT lessons… best wishes with your new digital store 🙂
Congratulations Cathy! Have recently discovered your site/YouTube channel and just completed your Scrapbook Your Year course – got the last 6 months done in a week (I know!) – I am keen to give hybrid scrapbooking a go so will be purchasing your templates too! Can’t wait for more tutorials though as slightly confused about how I will know the size to trim my photos to fit on the template once printed but hoping that will all become clear once I start!
Well Done! Congratulations, Cathy. I’m so happy for you and pray for your continued success.
I was peeking through all your goodies and wondered if you considered having a “Wish List” option. I wanted to put a little heart next to so many templates. 🙂
All the best to you from your long time fan and student from Wax.
Lynn Hill says
Fantastic news, Cathy! I know you are excited. I know your new shop will be successful because your designs are always wonderful. I already looked around your shop and plan to visit later today to snap up some goodies! Thanks.
Kay Gregory-Clark says
Congrats Cathy! Your new site is great. In fact, I’ve already gone to the shop & purchased some items. However, you’re going to have to get busy & design some new products quickly because I already have a huge number of them!
I really like the new checkout page except for one thing: there’s no way to log out once I’ve finished my order & the download. Also, will there be a way to save my info after a while?
I am so glad you’re offering 2 layouts for each design! Mostly I do 8.5×11″ too, but now & then I want to do 12×12. Love having them in the same file.
Another thing I like about the store: a sample layout! Many times I purchase a product based on seeing YOUR layout, so this is very helpful.
I also appreciate the small size files. They download quickly—I have limited and slow internet service, so this is so helpful.
Good luck, Cath! I have a feeling this is a success in the making.
Kay Gregory-Clark says
p.s. Ditto on Paige’s request for a Wish List!
This is great news! I love your designs and love to see what you come up with. My favorite is your templates!
Jeannette M. Burnett says
I have really enjoyed the tutorials of yours I have seen! Unfortunately I don’t speak the computer language you are speaking in this video. I have no idea how to use this kind of down load, but I hope you make a big success of this.
Wonderful news! Congratulations! Quite the milestone. So glad you’re still at it.
Yahoo! So happy to see you with your own shop. Can’t wait to see your new design team showcasing your templates/products. Bought the new ones.. have almost ALL of the other ones! 🙂
YAY for this – AND YOU!
I love your designs!!
Congrats on the new shop!
Toni Kwaiser says
I’m so happy for you!!! I’ll be shopping for digital scrapbooking!
Sheri Kempke says
Congrats Cathy on your new shop! I’m planning to take a long look a bit later this week, as I’ve been in a re-organizing mood and currently have the contents of my laundry/mud room/pantry dumped in various places around my house! The grand sort is on! Stay cool, stay healthy and great job on your shop!
Leora Henkin says
Congrats Cathy! I LOVED watching your intro video! Great job! I am especially excited about trying the cut files.
Really happy to see your shop up and running! I have been waiting AGES! I have pretty much everything you sold through DesignerDigitals so I was delighted to see you have some new templates…which I have bought already obvs! Congratulations and hope the stresses and strains of getting it up and ready (in the midst of a pandemic no less) prove to be worthwhile for you.
Joni A says
Congratulations!!! So so happy for you! Been a follower for a lllooonnnggg time and think you are just wonderful! Wishing you great success in this new venture!
Amy W. says
Yay! Congrats on the shop, I am so happy because I’ve been needing the school years template kit in 8.5 x 11!
Tracey Smith says
I am thrilled for you Cathy! I pray it’s a roaring success for you. Blessings! Tracey Smith
Woo hoo!! I’m so happy for you, Cathy! This is awesome – for you and for me! I’ve followed you for a LONG time – since the beginning, really. Well, not since you were born – lol – but since your days in scrapbooking. I have both of your wonderful books, which I’m happy to say are still entirely relevant and have survived countless purges in my craft room over the years! I’ll never get rid of them, as your style is timeless! Can’t wait to check out all the goodies in the shop and hopefully there will be some things I don’t already have! Stay safe and keep creating!
Congratulations! Love the new shop, an awesome shopping experience, appreciate the coupon. Can’t wait to come back for more new goodies!
Michelle Gleeson says
Cathy, congratulations on launching your online store. Thank you for creating the option of 12 x 12 with your 8.5 x 11 scrapbook pages. I purchased a template page a couple of years ago and struggled to translate it to 12 x 12 due to my limited skill in photoshop. The project is one of my favorite pages ever.
Love your work and your authenticity. And the photo of you is awesome BTW.
