New Book Club Collection & Value Pack

So I was trying to think of a new idea for a collection and thought to myself...what is important to me? Well... the 2nd thing I love to do outside of designing and scrapbooking is reading. I purchased a Kindle a few years ago for myself and it was the best money I ever spent. I thought...hmmm I wonder if I could make a digital E reader? So I did. And the Book Club Collection came in around it. I think with school starting this could also be used for those type of layouts, but still allowing you to use it for many other things throughout the year.

Book Club Collection Biggie
Jeroen has stated that he wouldn't switch to an E reader, he said he prefers to hold a book. But I do find him reading on his tablet from time to time. It's the way of the evolving world. But I do agree with him, sometimes it is nice just to hold a book. Remember what the library smells like? That's so nice.

It's hard to see everything, but if you click on any of the images you'll be taken to the store where you can open some of the images up larger in a new window. There are a few pieces that are my favorite pieces in the collection....

There are several pieces of vellum pieces in the set. They come with separate shadows so they are not so dark underneath when you add a shadow. This allows you to see more of what is underneath. The coffee comes in dark and light (I like mine light and sweet!) With separate steam.


Ideas for layouts

Click on any of the images to be taken to the shop, where you can see them a little larger and also see everything that was used to make the layout.

So, what genre is your favorite? I am in a Post Apocalyptic phase, but more survival, less zombies. I hope you enjoy the new collection this week and have a wonderful weekend scrapping or reading!
