The latest scrapstreet Ezine is up! The May issue is JAM PACKED let me tell you! And did you see the cover? Down there, look at the bottom right of the cover, do you see it? "Ready to blog? Di gets you started" that's my first article! Go me! You can check it out here


The May free kit is "touch of tile" by Dora. Rockin kit. Love the elements in this kit! You can see the preview below, and get the download info here There are also a TON of free kits in the scrapstreet digital store. Remember Scrapstreet has a new free kit every month, so keep checking back!




For those that didin't catch the April issue here is the cover! Love the cover layout and colors! Too fun! You can see the full issue and articles here, there is an awesome article on embossing I'd recommend checking out!

Here is my layout for "pixel place" with the free digital kit this month. We had to do a layout that was about spring. When I first did this layout I really wasn't 100% sure I liked it, but the more I looked at it the more it grew on me. Totally been in a circle phase lately!



The free digital kit for April was Tropical Expression by Dora. Such fun papers! And Dora rocks the alpha's! Totally a spring/summer kit with the bright colors. I have to say Scrapstreet rocks the freebies! How can you not love an ezine that gives you a free digital kit every month? You can find details on downloading the kit here
