I just need to have  a single identity for it  :)

I'm Never Tired of Patterned Prints

I love working with prints until I have a pattern that's just perfect. And I never seem to get tired of it! With the encouragement of some dear friends, I've been making some of these labors of love available as commercial use digital scrapbooking designs in my little shop at NutHouse-Scraps.

I called this new set of patterned overlays Blossom Prints because they are all based on floral designs. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.

They're a black design on a transparent ground for maximum usability. But write me if you have any questions about using them as a designer resource.

Rachael Hudnall used them in her new gorgeous Sweet Summer collection, including a wonderful free quickpage:

Swirling Prints for Commercial Use

It's the Summer of Prints for me - and I do love making them! Many thanks to my designing friend, Manu, I made some pretty swirling prints this week and got them into the shop in time for Sunday's sale at the NutHouse!

There are six deliciously swirling prints in full-size scrapbooking pages, ready to be used or abused as overlays, underlays, or other creative way. But I've also included the 6 hand-built seamless pattern tiles with transparent backgrounds which I used to create these overlays so that you can really customize them.

Color them, distress them, erase parts of them ... add stuff to them, texture them, use them over your own textured papers to match perfectly - the sky is the limit when you have the tiles to build your own patterns!

It's the way I wish all printed papers came, so I'm trying to do my best at doing what I preach!

Take advantage of my DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT Offer - PM or email me when you use one of my CU items in your products for sale. Then I'll feature it on my blog and add it to the most recent previews right in the shop for this set.

Here's some quick papers I made from these same prints:

NEW! Flowering Print Papers

I've just finished up a set of commercial-use flowering prints in a 6-pack at! I loved making these prints, and can't wait to see what people make from them!

There are 5 full size digital scrapbooking papers - and I've included the path for the floral print on four of them for you. The sixth member of this set is a Petite Fleur full color rose overlay with transparency so that you can do anything you want with it!

I made a couple samples up using them, just to show them off a bit in glorious color:

They'll be on sale for 35% off until Monday, June 28th at midnight at the above links - click on the images.

More ColourWashed Sets for Designers

I've taken my ColourWashed series a step further with new sets of scenery under-paintings. These are soft suggestions of colors that are ready to take to the next step by Scrapbook Designers. Add textures, edges, details, or designs to these wispy fantasy paper starters for show-stopping results in your next project.

Artists use under-painting techniques as some of the base layers of paintings - they add depth, allow for flow between elements, and provide a wash of color as a base. I think you'll have a great deal of fun with these!

There's 2 different versions, because my designing friends said sometimes they would use the plain, smooth, untextured version and sometimes the one with brush stroke textures. I couldn't find a consensus at all!

Here's a sample one to download for free at

Sample ColourWashed - A New Series

New Paper Starters

After a number of designers asked (many) times about my multi-colored papers and backgrounds, I am releasing three sets of these high-drama paper-starters for sale at

Softly blending colors smoothly transition across a page - reminding me of how watercolors wash a paper, but these designer resources are all digital. (Now you know how they got their name!) These beauties are 300dpi, 12x12 jpg images in full color. There's a regular set, a bright set, and a pastel set.

A full commercial-use license comes with each set, even the full-size free sample below.

What can you do with them?

What can't you do! I've used this technique in some of my best selling kits - people love the color variation and blending! The papers come texture free so that you can add exactly the right texture you need to complement or match your own designs.

You can also put a pattern over them, use them to fill a pattern, or to colorize an element. If you're disappointed they're not available in greyscale - then gosh, turn them greyscale and fiddle with them - your creativity is the only limit!

They're available for $3.99 for a set of 4 - or all three sets in a discount bundle.

Click the thumbnail below for the free download page and play with this wonderfully purpled ColourWash page. Professional use is allowed for this free sample, too.

I'd love to see what you use them for! They can go from elegant to fantasy, from contemporary to heritage. It's all your wrist!

Design Professionals: take advantage of my Designer Spotlight - PM or email me when you use one of my CU items in your products for sale. Then I'll feature it on my blog and add it to the most recent previews right in the shop for this set.
