Review of Danielle Young for The Pocket Source

Review:
I like the tiny snippet type alphas, they allow you to fit larger words into small spaces and allow you to add color.
I like the fact that alpha sets are available separately. Neutral alpha sets can be used over and over again.
I like that element sets are available separately. Some pocket scrappers don’t often use digital papers so this makes very good sense for them.
I like that many of the elements like word arts and even papers are easily recolored. I was able to mix and match with bits and pieces of four different collections and still make a cohesive layout.
I like that she includes plenty of paint. The digital alternative to help with multi media effects is really “in” right now and her elements kits have your options.
I like that the flair sets include several choices depending on your preference. There are flat circles in black & white and color versions as well as a set of flairs for those who don’t use dimensional elements.
I really like word art both in elements and on journal cards because it can be used in so many ways. It can inspire your whole layout, help you to tell individual stories or just to add a little bit of spice.

We Are Storytellers at The Lilypad

The Lilypad kicked off a month long series of daily freebies and weekly challenges to celebrate us as storytellers.

I had the pleasure of working with Sara Gleason’s mini kit from Day 1. I used it to document the first couple of hours after we adopted our newest cat, Rocky.
