Paper Pretties – Jan 3rd Release Images!

Welcome to the kick off of the new Digital Design Team for the Paper Pretties company! This is the first ever digital design team and there is a fabulous group of ladies just waiting to share new release images and inspiration  that will blow your mind! You can find a complete list of all the Digital Design Team members in my left sidebar (near the bottom). Please make sure you check out there creations weekly for inspiration on how they used the week new release image(s).

Paper Pretties sells a wide range of clear stamps, scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies and of course digital images. If you are not familiar with digital images, it is the newest and hottest way to stamp these days. What is unquie about digital images is that you can resize your digital stamp to ANY size you would like to fit any project your working on. Try resizing with your clear stamps or the wooden stamps? Not going to happen! Digital stamp/images is the trendiest way to stamp, and all you need is some white cardstock and a printer! It costs just the same amount as regular stamping just that you can resize!

To kick off the Digital Design Team we have a freebie to share with you all, this freebie will be only available for 1 week over on the main Paper Prettie blog which you can find HERE. The image below is the freebie and you will want to grab him before he is gone! Head on over to the Paper Pretties blog to receive your freebie image that kick starts the new Digital Design Team!

This week we are releasing new 2 digital images. Which are shown below. The freebie and new release images are illustrated by ARTish.
