Kits I’m Eyeing February 24, 2011

Digi-designs by Nicole is having a fun contest (Pick me, pick me!  😉  ) where we highlight three of her kits for the chance to win them.  Well, one was an easy pick for me because I’ve been eying it since the particularly bittersweet moment of Judah’s first haircut.  Sniff sniff. 
Before (Okay, okay, so maybe he needed the haircut! But still….!!)

After.... (Bye bye curls! 😦 )

So bittersweet!  It feels like such a short time ago that he was this bald little newborn that God entrusted to us…. I think he’s growing faster than even his hair is! 

…But for all the bittersweetness, I still want to remember his first haircut…. So wouldn’t this kit be lovely for that??

Aren't the scissors and comb adorable?? (Image linked to Nicole's store if you want to check it out.)

The other ones I had a bit more difficulty with.  Sigh – so many to choose from!  🙂

…But since I love Disney and am hoping we’ll get to take another trip there soon, this one grabbed my attention. 

A lot of the papers are generic enough, too, that they'd work for non-Disney layouts, too. (Image linked to store.)

And finally, after debating between the baby kit (Hey, I’ve got baby on the brain!  Only 3 more weeks left until Due Date!) and another Disney kit (I mean REALLY hoping to get back….  😉  ), what I kept going back to is not actually a kit but a template pack.  Now hear me out!  This is not your ordinary template pack….

See, I told you….  I’m all about the template to save time – and to help me do all the things I don’t know how to.  I really like this template pack because one of the things I miss about paper scrapbooking is the ability to create fun shapes with scissors.  I loved going to crops and using all the fancy paper cutters in different shapes, and though I know there’s that capability in digital scrapbooking, in all honesty, I have no clue how to do it (and probably don’t have the brain power and time to learn at this stage, either.  I’m lucky to even get a page done!) – insert these templates!

So there you have it!  Some more fun kit options from the digital scrapbooking world, this time featuring Nicole of Digi-deigns by Nicole (who, incidentally, is the owner of Stuff to Scrap, arguably one of my favorite digital scrapbooking forums and galleries.  If you haven’t checked out their forum and challenges, do it!  They’re fun, and you can even earn points towards a gift card to their store.)
