Scrapbook Saturday: You are Be-YOU-tiful!



Happy Saturday! I want to say a huge THANK YOU! to all of the wonderful encouragement and excitement we received yesterday over the opening of the new store. It means the world to know that there are so many wonderful people rooting for us! Thank you for your confidence in us, and please know that we will do our best to always provide excellent service and high-quality products that you can feel proud to use. If ever there is a time that you feel we have not met the mark, please do contact us and let us know so that we can strive to improve. That said, let's get to what you came for -- Scrapbook Saturday!!!

For this week's inspiration, designer Melissa Craig has created another fabulous digital layout using some of the playful elements from the "Lots of Thoughts" set. I love how she has taken a somewhat awkward but "real" teen moment and turned it into a reflection on how absolutely precious these young ladies are, just as they are! So often these days we see young ladies (and men, too!) trying so hard to fit into molds of what they think society expects them to be in order to be "beautiful," when truly the most beautiful thing they can be is themselves, just as God created them to be! Even we adults sometimes struggle with that, right? The sentiment that Melissa used on this delightful page is something we all need to take to heart -- "U R Be-YOU-tiful!" :-)

A Brand New Store!!! (Freebie & Sale!)

Hello, crafty friends! I'm so thrilled to announce that Deedee's Digis has moved to its own dedicated store!!! You can find our new store at http://shop.deedeesdigis.com, or by clicking the "Shop" link on the menu at the top of this page.

As you know, my fellow digi illustrator and dear friend Diane Noble has generously carried our products at her wonderful store -- Diane's Daydream Designs -- for the past 9 months. This has been a huge blessing, and I am extremely grateful to Diane for this! She has been a true treasure to work with. But I have really missed interacting directly with my customers, as well as having a place to call my own. Thus, our new store!

Diane will continue to carry many of our digis at her store, too, so if you don't like change, well, you don't have to do anything differently! But if you're curious...among other things, at our new store you will find:

* All of the high-quality, budget-friendly Deedee's Digis products you've come to know and love!

Catching Flies



Are you a baseball fan? If so, then this is your season! Designer NanaConnie has made a fabulous baseball-themed card to inspire us all today. She used a precolored image from the "Catching Flies" set to create this card, along with a sentiment of her own. The colors in this are so warm and wonderful, and the base-shaped image piece is perfect with this theme! She even carried this through to the inside of the card, adding a sentiment from this digi set.


Such a great card to encourage a team player!

Last Week to Join the May Challenge!



It's the last week to join in the fun of the May Digi of the Month Challenge. Be sure to link up your project by this Sunday, 1 June, in order to qualify to receive the June featured set for FREE!

We have a couple of lovely cards to share today to help inspire you last-minute crafters. This first card was made by designer KT Fit Kitty. Kitty combined pre-colored and outline images to make her card. By doing this, the panda was already colored the way she wanted it to be, but then she was able to change the colors on the tie and the gift bag to the bright and cheery shades she wanted -- very clever! I really like how she did the sentiment, too, with the word "NOT" highlighted for emphasis, and then the rejoinder in smaller print. Fun!




This classy piece was made by designer Zella Turley. The colors and textures she used in this are so masculine -- just perfect for Dad! I really like the layout of this with the textured strips under the image piece. They really make it pop, and again give it that wonderful masculine feel!

If you don't already have this month's featured digi set -- "Not a Tie" -- you can still pick it up for just $1.25 this week. We look forward to seeing what you make with it, and to sharing next month's set with you soon! :-)

Thank You for Your Service



It's Memorial Day here in the United States. It's a day of remembrance, and honoring our loved ones who have passed before us, particularly those who gave their lives to keep our country free. Many of us celebrate this "3-day weekend" with camping trips, pool parties, and BBQs, but I think it's really important to keep the real reason behind the "holiday" in mind and heart. Today designer Carol Longacre has made a poignant card to mark the meaning of the day, and to thank the many Americans who have served the cause of freedom. She used the new "Hats Off" set to create this. Thank you, Carol, for sharing this lovely card with us today, and thank you to the many who have served, and the families whose sacrifices continue to protect the country that we call home.
