Whether you are a digital scrapbooker, a card maker or creating other types of graphics projects, you might be on the lookout for supplies. Although you might be able to create most elements yourself (especially if you are using the tutorials in the Campus), sometimes you want to get something completed fast, or you might just want to get inspired by ready-made supplies. A couple of years ago, I discovered a site that is friendly and offers great supplies, for free!
Kits and supplies
Pixel Scrappers has a very large vault of kits, elements, templates and more. A lot of the supplies on the site is available for free while others (including full kits) are available for a small monthly subscription. This is a real gold mine for scrapbookers and card makers because there is a lot of choices. In fact, there are thousands of kits to choose from! To avoid bandwidth issues, there is a daily limit of downloads, which can be bypassed with the monthly membership if you want to join. Also, as a downloader for personal use products, you will need to download elements one by one as the "kit download" is reserved for paying members, and some kits don't have their elements available for individual downloads. You'll have to browse and check.
If you are short on inspiration, you can browse their gallery. Again, you will have thousands and thousands of project to go through. mostly digital scrapbook layouts but also you can see some hybrid projects.
Although most of the tutorials on the site are geared toward Photoshop, and Photoshop Element users, you can still get some inspiration for new effects or new elements to create. Many similar tutorials are available in the Campus already.
PixelScrappers has a nice and friendly forum you can join, or browse if you want to just lurk around. Although there are not many Paintshop Pro users on that forum, you can still share about other related topics like organizing supplies, reusing supplies, how to tell stories, and printing projects.
Although many posts on the blog are related to new kits on the site, new blog train links, and such, there are also some tips and tricks closely or loosely related to scrapbooking.
So, will you visit that great resource that is PixelScrappers?
