Pixel Scrapper

I was recently contacted by Thani from Pixel Scrapper, who asked if I was interested in writing a blog post about my experience with the site. 

I've been a subscriber since 2013 and, let me tell you, I would let a lot of other things go before I would ever consider giving up my Pixel Scrapper subscription!

Why, you might ask?

Quite simply, I wouldn't be doing what I do, if it wasn't for Pixel Scrapper.

I would never have discovered something that I truly love to do - the creative outlet that is digital scrapbook designing.

Scrap Twist Blog Train would not exist, and this blog you are reading right now would not exist. And that is all down to Pixel Scrapper, because I took part in a kit-creating challenge on (you guessed it, Pixel Scrapper!) The ladies I was partnered with on that challenge were the core group of original designers for Scrap Twist. We actually started up the blog train because we just 'clicked', and wanted to keep designing together! And, although we have never met in person, we have become true friends, sharing the highs and lows of our lives.

When I first discovered Pixel Scrapper, a whole new world was opened up to me. I could download a digital scrapbook kit from the seemingly endless range of quality digital items on offer, I could go through a tutorial to learn how to use the papers and elements in the kits, I could ask a question in the forums, which would be answered by people who had a lot more experience and knowledge than I had. As I gained more experience myself, I could post a comment to help someone else.

Yes, the combination of quality digital supplies and tutorials was wonderful, but it’s the people who make the site so special. From Marisa, Jordan & Thani, to the designers and the other creative people who contribute to the running of this site, and to all the other members – I have never come across such a friendly, generous, welcoming group of people.

You just have to read through their Manifesto to realise what a unique place Pixel Scrapper holds in the digital scrapbook community. The generosity of spirit embodied in this document clearly illustrates the ethos which is the very heart of this site.

If you have never visited Pixel Scrapper before, make sure you do! As an Australian television music presenter used to say, "Do yourself a favour!" You will be so very, very glad that you did.



(Although I was asked to write this blog post, I was under no obligation to do so, and everything I have written here has come from my own personal experience with the site. No one at Pixel Scrapper has had any input into the wording, or any of the content.)

February 2021 | It's About Time!

 

It's that time again - Scrap Twist Blog Train time! We had such a pretty palette to work with this month, courtesy of Sherry from Nellie Bell's Unique Boutique:

January 2021 | A Fresh Start

Hello everyone! We have finally said goodbye to the challenging year that was 2020, and are at last able to welcome in 2021, a year which we all hope will be better that last year. So, this is my wish: 

A very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year to you all! 

We have some beautiful palettes coming up this year, with this one being no exception! The first blog train for 2021 is Winter Fun. The palette, theme and twist were chosen by Marilyn from Marniejo's House Of Scraps. 




As you can see on the palette image, above, we had to include at least one snowman, so I have been researching snowy scenes in the middle of a heatwave in Australia!

Here's a preview of the bundle I made:
