Life is amazing…

“Life is amazing”, that’s all. I don’t find any other additional word to say, any other way to express it better. I made this collection moved by a happy mood and I wanted to create something that could help me to make positive layouts, with positive ideas and intentions. Colors are cooler but the inner meaning is warm and deep. You will find flowers and drawned stickers, messy paints, words and word bits, masks, ribbons and bows, a few unique realistic embellishments and more. Have fun!!

Thank you!

Oh my dear friends!! After NSD I needed a break and so I had it. I spent a bit of time with friends, enjoying fitness lessons and beaches. Now I’m back with a new Photobook Collection and the “Sneak Peek” of new whimsical collection.

Under gentle request by a couple of you, I finally repacked the most beautiful photobook produced from 2012-2013. This 2nd volume includes 10 full Photobooks, 10 pages each plus covers; Each page is large 24 inches and tall 12 inches: it basically includes spreads of 2 12×12 layouts. Each page has been saves as flattened JPG file: these are first edition of photobooks and they are not editable, but flattened. APPROX. TOTAL SIZE: 1.2GB

Attention: PNG and PSD files aren’t included. Besides, these photobooks don’t contain the drag and drop feature of PSE; They work as simple spreads (jpg pages side by side); You will place your photo on the papers and that’s all.

SNEAK PEEK

Stay tuned!!

Time really goes fast. I just finished to promote the April Planner Collection and we’re already in may!!! The good news is that it’s time for a new planner collection. “A woman like you” is a very mixed and artistry collection, where I let my hands making scribbles here and there on the digital paper, mixing feelings and styles like vintage and modern vectorized doodles. I love the result. As the title say and as you may guess by the month, I made a “mother-day-oriented” collection. It’s not the typical dreamy collection, but it’s a different approach, a little bit more artistry, closer to journal art, but with a subtle vintage taste. Since we’re celebrating iNSD, you may brag the pieces of this collection 50% off. The collection is 61% off.

Cluster Specifics:

These cluster frames include not only the classic cluster embellishment but they also include the customizable layered PSD/PSE file; You can open the PSD file where you have the chance to move,scale and customize all the pieces which compose the cluster and even you can add your picture by clipping mask; The canvas ot this template is already 12×12 inches; You may just import a paper from the kit and in just a few minutes you have a quick-page ready.

But the most awesome thing of this new type of cluster frames is that you will find also the PSE (Photoshop Elements 12+) file: now can use the “drag and drop” feature; If you wanna modify the position of the photo inside the frame, you have to double click on it in order to activate the bounding box to transform the size, position and inclination of the picture.

Even in this template you can move all around the embellishments which compose the cluster; you may place a beautiful paper to make a beautiful Quick Page in a few minutes.

Enjoy and thank you!

April Planner: Focus Article

Taking notes: the planner-mania

Planning things sounds very natural to me. I plan everything! I carry my agenda/planner everywhere: I take notes, record appointments, sketch designs and or projects, write lists (tons of to-do lists); I even can’t remember when I started to do. Maybe I was 8, at the primary school, when my teacher saw me taking notes on my book and she was amazed. To me it was just a normal behaviour: if I wanted to remember exactly the focus points of the lesson I would do better to take a note. By this settings you may easily understand my passion for planners and stationery stuff. If I want to buy a souvenir, I go to look for a pen or a special pencil. Maybe a diary or something like that. I’m a convulsive hunter of stationery treasures.

My desk

Planners Line

A few years ago the planner-mania came into the digiscrap world. The spreading was easy given to the developing of hybrid projects like printables and cutting files. Now designers can design their own inserts: imagine the amazingness! One year ago I started making my Planner Collections too. Though not everyone is familiar with planners and how to use them and what are they for. First of all you should keep in mind that planners help you taking notes and planning things. That’s why they’re sort of tables and schemes with calendars and spaces to write notes. You may write the list of goodies you are going to grab from the supermarket, for example. Or maybe you want to write a WISH LIST, listing all the stuff you wish for the year, or for the month. You may list the books you wanna read or plan your diet, listing all the meals for each day of the week.

I am sure you got the sense! So, as scrapper, you should think at Planner Collections as a huge hybrid Bundle where to find sheets to print and add to your planner binder.

Original artworks and the final decorated planner

APRIL PLANNER: My Birthday

This is my fourth Planner collection of the year, April. I chose a “birthday-party-tea” theme because on April I will turn 32. This kind of collection is hybrid because it includes the traditional scrap kit (elements and papers) and also all those printable stuff like tabs, word bits, stickers, inserts and so on. So, you may use the kit as usual, to make your own layouts for the web or for the print, or you may integrate the kit to your Planner projects. Let’s suppose you want to customize a insert: you will use the embellishments and papers from the kit to do that.

The first thing you will do is printing the inserts and you will choose the format of the your binder: A5? A4? It’s up to you. My planner collections include always 4 formats: A4 – A5 – Personal and Heidi Swapp format. Watch the video below for a quick demostration of the workflow.

PRINT and Decorate

I printed A4 inserts and I decorated them with the stickers, word bits and other stuff from the printables. The inserts of this Planner may be used for all the months of the year and for all the years. The only exception is for inserts of Month Covers, because they show the April 2017 calendar. All the rest of inserts may be used for all the months, because they are generic and have generic calendars (from Monday to Sunday or from Sunday to Saturday); You may customize them by adding the day number on your own. The inserts pack includes also a numbers sheet to print and cut.

Paste the day number in order to create the month calendar.

 

BLOCKS: How to use them!

The block set includes both square and circle blocks. The square blocks are to decorate the month planner. You may paste them exactly on each block of the insert. The circle blocks are for decorate the Week Cover instead.

 

Use the blocks to emphasize the days. I put the “Happy Birthday” block on the day of my birthday.

The TABS: use them to specify TASKS!

I really hope you enyoyed this article. For any additional information do not hesitate to leave me a question on comments or by mail. Thanks!

I just wanna say that…

I love my job

I love my job. I love arts. I love the sense of surprise and amazing shock when a piece of art gets in touch with my heart, through my eyes. During latest years I felt the need to escape from my computer. Being kinda a creative nerd may have its own negative aspects and, most relevant, my physic and health were going to be seriously affected in a permanent irreversible way.
That’s why I started looking aroung, searching for new job opportunities and reasons to go out and exploring the “outside world”;

What I found is that I do truly love the outside world. I love the sound of nature, the sea, the city rumors, the kids playing in the park on a sunny day. I love everything around me.

Live more, share less

Staying in touch with the endless scenarios offered by this sole chance we have to travel this world, is for sure the most exciting experience we might do.

Now that I’m finally giving to myself the chance to live more “outside”, I can even appreciate more my life “inside”, at home, in those moments of pure nothing, when a few hours of relax, joint to good expresso and music, may become the most pleasant thing of the day.

At the same time I can even revaluate my job, which now appears as magnificient, because it makes me do what I like most, make me express myself without filters, giving me the chance to reach people on the other corner of the earth.

Making changes is no bad. It may give you two kind of responses: you may have the confirm that what you were doing wasn’t the right thing for you; or it may give you the chance to look with new eyes at your current life, revaluating it, giving it the proper good value. Maybe you needed to see how the “other possibility” was, before to understand how precious is what you have already.

That’s what happened to me. Now that I know that only designing for my scrappers makes me feel the happiest person, I’m no longer searching for new roads. I’m already where I should be. As I said, I love my job.
