A new collection The Struggle is Real: Self Esteem

Rachel has teamed up with Amber of Crafty Button Designs to bring you this amazing collection called The Struggle is Real: Self Esteem.

The Struggle is Real is a mixed media series about the struggles we face in life but can't always verbalize. This series offers a way to express your feelings through art and to offer catharsis to those who need it. Art can be a very therapeutic experience and this series can help you shed some light and beauty on your internal struggles and how to get through them.

Amber created this series and each release will be created with a different designer, Rachel was excited when Amber invited her to collaborate with her on the Self Esteem release and we all love what has been created, they have been working so hard and there's lots of it!

The Struggle is Real: Self Esteem is available as a money saving collection (with special bonus discount during new release weekend) as well as individual pieces.

Happy DSD and New Releases

Hey everyone jaye here. I am so happy that Rachel has returned to digital design and that I get to brag about her amazing talents and the awesomeness that is created with them. Without further chatter here is the nitty gritty of what goodness will be filling Rachel’s store.

The first weekend of the month at The Lilypad means it is BYOC time and Rachel has created some amazing packs (or in a bundle if you’re a newsletter subscriber) that are sure to have you creating page after page.

I am so pumped to say that the Silent Battles series is making a return!! Yes, this amazing collab between Rachel and Ru of Studio Basic Designs is coming back. . . .this weekend!! I love the realness of this series as well as the many uses for the designs.

Here I present to you Silent Battles: Grief, available as a bundle or individually.

Silent Battles: Stress


Silent Battles: Negative Thoughts

Here are the Sale details in Rachel’s Shop, be sure to note the free with purchase gifts when you spend $15 or $25 dollars and don’t forget to check out the Party Forum where we are celebrating DSD!

Finally, Rachel has added a huge archive of hand crafted Mixed Media Digital Scrapbooking Papers. Please check your stash very carefully as some of these papers date back to 2012 and were all part of Kits or Collections at some time or another. They feature hand painting, collage, blending and other mixed media and digital artistry techniques. A treasure trove of mixed media goodness!

In total there are 137 papers valued at a whopping $87.25 and Half Price this DSD weekend. Due to the sheer volume of papers there are not previews of each set included but you can expect expectional quality, and my signature style collage, hand painting and mark making. Visit the shop to find a note of all the Kit/Collection names that these once belonged too.
