Shimelle Digitals - The Baker's Dozen

16:00 Karen 18 Comments

How thrilled and delighted am I? I really cannot put it into words. I have been chosen by the lovely and talented Shimelle to be one of her 'Baker's Dozen' 13 ladies hand picked to design with her digital kits. And wow what a talented bunch of ladies they are - pop along to their blogs and see what they have done with this fabulous kit. In truth, when I got the e-mail and saw how good the other ladies are, I seriously thought Shimelle had e-mailed me by mistake, this was reinforced when I realised that there are in fact 3 Karens on the team so she must have meant one of them! But no it was me she wanted and wow am I amazed!

As a starter we have each made a page using Shimelle's Long and Winding Road Kit and the FREE add on kit. Some pages are digi and some, like mine, are hybrid. This just goes to show how versatile the kits are. You can go totally digi as many of the ladies have (are you now standing back in awe at their talent?) or you can print out the elements, papers etc - cut them out and use them as you would paper scrapping supplies - hybrid scrapping. I have gone down this route as has the very talented Karen C.

As a thrifty scrapper I love the fact that for a very small payment I can get something that I can use time and time again, changing the colour and size as and when I wish - genius I would say, wouldn't you? For me hybrid scrapping is the way forward.

Go and look on their blogs at the other 'Baker's Dozen' pages - then after you have got your breath back from gasping in amazement maybe go and have a little peek at Shimelle's kits and maybe buy one - go on I know you want to really.

For this post I have just one reason to be extremely cheerful:-

I am one of Shimelle's Baker's Dozen!
