Easter Egg Hunt Digital Scrapbook Kit Freebie

New to digital scrapbooking? Never downloaded a digital kit before? What in the world are .rar files anyway? Get your answers here: How to Unzip Files So You Can Digi Scrap.

You know, I don't like scrapbooking layouts with set themes. I'm not a theme kind of girl. Probably because they tend to be repetitive. I mean, Christmas comes every year, so does Independence Day, plus all the other holidays, and then on top of that, you have birthdays, all of which provide photos that are basically interchangeable. That's not to say I don't think they are important days. I do. I think traditions and rituals especially in family life are enormously important. It's just that they are repetitive.

So, I was surprised this year when I was excited to design an Easter kit. I knew we were going to my dad's side of the family for their annual Easter egg hunt, so I started this paper about a week before that. It wasn't until I got the photos in front of me that it really started to gel, and I think this is one of my favorite kits ever. Aside from these papers (which aren't in the thumb, you couldn't see anything but the top), the rest aren't overtly Easter and would be perfect for other themes.


Anyway, I was pretty excited about the pictures I took, especially this one of Aubriana and my nephew, Miles. I knew it was going to be the star of my layout.


Which it was:







Kit Contents: 15 Pattern Papers, 1 Overlay, 3 Bunny Masks, 2 Styles of Grass Masks (that just makes me laugh), 3 Egg Masks, 1 Butterfly Mask, 3 Labels, 1 Journaling Spot, 1 Set Stitches

As a bonus for this kit, I made my layout into a two page, 12x12 quick page (it's a .psd file), that you can easily slip your pictures into--you know, in case scrapbooking the same holidays over and over makes you a little crazy too. And, there's room for 10 shots; a must if you are a click-a-holic, like me.

I made sure that the title was able to be edited, in case you want to change it. If you want to leave it how it is, you need to make sure you have Franklin Gothic and Titillium on your computer (again, I can't verify these fonts are free from viruses--use caution). I used a font called Fish Face for the "egg," but I actually couldn't find Fish Face even with my mad google skills, so I also rasterized one layer and left one the font, just delete the one you don't want.

Enjoy! I hope you have a fabulous Easter!
