Extending Your Digital Supply Stash with Artful Add-ons

Extending the Use of your Digital Kits

It’s easy to change up your digital pages by mixing and matching digital elements from other kits and element packs. My “Artful Add-on” series is designed to do just that.

Each Artful Add-0n pack includes at least one textured page overlay, one border and multiple scribbles, stamps and ephemera. Because they are not “themed” you can use them to dress up any page, created with any kit.

Creative Team member, Julie, used Express Yourself: Hope as her main kit for this page. It’s a lovely page just as it is, but Julie decided to experiment.

By adding bits and pieces from several Artful Add-on packs, Julie took her lovely page to a completely different level by adding lots of texture and elements that interest and depth. The more you look at the page, the more you’ll discover. She used a text transarency under the photo to help it stand out and used a highly textured overlay to bring life to the background page. 

CT, Jana, took a completely different approach. She not only added elements from Artful Add-on packs, but she also combined elements from multiple kits to create a page that is not only visually outstanding but which is completely her own. By clipping various background papers to elements and choosing elements that fit the mood she wanted to convey, Jana created a totally unique page that suits her personal style. Main kits used (in addition to the Artful Add-on packs) on Jana’s page: Vitamin Sea, Unfinished Woman and Put a Little Love in It.

Other Products Used on these pages include gesso overlays and elements; brushes and stamps; and textures and overlays.

    Thank Vicki. I have been wanting this instruction for a long time. I did not know how to tell you. This is what I was how to do it when loading JPEG pictures and use them on my scrapping. Thank you so much.

      I love it. The tutorial is very interesting and I learn more and more. But i can not work with “tif” elements. They are only of one area. Thank you very much for the freebies ?

        Thank you so much, Antje! TiF is a layered file. What program do you use?
