New release highlights for Jan. 10, 2010

by | Blog Archive | 27 comments

It’s been six weeks since my last regular posting of new digital products. By mid-December I was suffering major withdrawal, even with the seasonal mood boards. I missed being in-the-know about the latest supplies for digital scrapbooking and am excited to get back in the groove.

This edition is jam-packed with lots of goodies. As I mentioned, I’ll be spending more time pointing you to the best templates as well as the top kits and basics each week. Prepare to be enabled!

  1. Michelle

    I am trying the 365 project and am looking for templates with 7 photos per page!

  2. photojenic

    I love your new release posts. I’m so glad they’re back!

  3. Tiffany

    I love your new product highlights! I would love to see ideas on how get more use out of the kits I already own.

  4. Amanda

    I love that you do the new product highlights! I don’t always have time to keep up with new releases each week so it’s nice to see them here! Thanks!!

  5. Kellie

    I’d love to see some articles on how to make the most of your stash. I own so much stuff, and I’m trying to work through it, keep the stuff I really love and get rid of the stuff I will never use.

  6. Kristin

    Oh my… you are quite the enabler, aren’t you! So many fun finds… and thanks for the mention! Just wanted to add that the freebie template from Log Your Memory was a creation of one of our Calendar Girls, Sarah Hirst.

  7. Michelle W

    I too love seeing all these finds. I love seeing inspiration pages to get my creativity flowing and I LOVE free templates! In 2010, I just want to see you keep doing what you’ve been doing!

  8. Jenn (jenn7)

    Great stuff Jennifer. I always enjoy your posts. I really can’t think of anything else, I think you cover everything pretty well. Maybe even more inspiration, inspiring scrappers, features on them?

  9. tzigane

    i know that it isn’t really anything new but i love to see new release templates, plus all the articles on organizing our stuff. i like the little work along projects that are offered too!
    something new, maybe a scrapper featured each week. people can submit their layouts and then you can choose one of them and do a post. put their short bio and a couple layouts. something like that.

  10. Kari~RDG

    I love the highlights & hope to keep seeing them! How about featuring designs from newer designers who are just starting out?

  11. Crystal

    I love the new Product releases too as they are stores that I don’t tend to go see myself. Awesome choices. Just want to post an FYI that Sara Ellis is now selling at

    Also Blythe Evans is coming out of retirement and selling at SDD also.

    I also have an enabling link for a New designer as well and just starting out that I feel has a lot of talent and promise. Here is a link to her blog she gives out FREE templates usually on Tuesdays.

  12. Katie

    I’m new to your site, I found it last week, and I’m really happy about everything I see so far! I guess if I had to pick something I’d like to see it would be more advanced tutorials on photoshop.

  13. Marcie_H

    Wow!! I’ve missed your enabling. LOL
    I would love to see some creative templates and ideas specifically for Project 52. I love the idea of P365 but I just can’t keep up with it.

    Okay now I’m off to shop through your list. 🙂


  14. Terebene

    What a great list! I would like to see more advanced PS tutorials and ideas for layouts that go beyond the traditional ones. Thanks for all you do!

  15. Lois H.

    I am really enjoying the preview of new releases and templates. It makes it so much easier to quickly choose the ones that would work for me without hopping all over the net and missing some.
    I would also love some PSE tutorials if possible as I am learning that product and hungry to learn new tips and tricks.
    Thank you!

  16. Melissa Rhodes

    More of the same please!

  17. RKSP

    I love this site! I’d love to see some articles on
    –how to get the most out of all the pieces of a kit
    –how to use embellishments well on a scrapbook page (good design, doesn’t draw attention from the photo, etc)
    –different ways to put together a layout (e.g., start with a photo in mind, start with a kit in mind, etc)

  18. ChrissyW

    oooh love all of this!! thanks for posting my 365 templates too!

  19. Robin

    Wow! Lots of great products! I’d love to see more easy challenges like you did last year.

  20. Jennifer

    I love the new product releases you do! I also agree that maybe highlighting a new designer who is trying to get their name out would be really cool. Im always interested in the new stuff.
    What I would like to see more of are tutorials, ranging from basic to advanced so everyone can benefit.
    Keep up the great work!

  21. Mandy

    I LOVE your site! I would love to see organizational tips. I stopped paper scrapbooking because my materials were so disorganized, and while digital is easier to start and stop a page when needed I still can’t figure out the best way to organize all the great material!

  22. Sherly

    Wow those are amazing new goodies around the digiland! I love that new kit by Amy Stoffel! The colors rock!!!
    Thanks for the freebies 🙂
    I’d love to see more scrapping techniques, some how-tos and maybe some basic stuffs to learn if we ever want to be a designer ourselves.

    Thanks 🙂

  23. Tami

    I hope you will continue exactly what you are doing – helping us find the best of the best (especially templates), so we can concentrate on being productive. It’s so easy for me to get sidetracked when I go looking for something that it’s nice to have some of the searching narrowed down already. Also, I love your no nonsense motivation posts – I’m thinking of your Larry Winget guide in particular. Looking forward to a great year!

  24. rags

    I agree, more of the same please! This is such a great site.
    I also love seeing how creatively people use their digital supplies for more than just scrapbooking, or even ways to display their pictures/layouts. I only ever come across these by accident, so I know there are so many great ideas out there I haven’t found yet.

  25. Heather K

    I’m kinda a junkie for mini books, especially gratitude stuff, lifestyle stuff. Maybe some mini templates? Hybrid is good, too! Thanks for the great site!

  26. Julie P

    I would love to see tips on making the whole downloading and “organizing of digital scrapbooking supplies” process more simple. I have a slew of freebies and purchases in my downloads folder that I need to unzip and organize, but I’m dreading it! Thanks for the contest!
