So Sweet

About a year ago I caught the digital paper BUG! I rarely ever buy stacks of traditional paper anymore. I know I can buy a pack of digital paper for next to nothing and print out as many sheets as I need, plus it’s great to know I will never run out!
Part of the fun in playing with digital paper is adding my own personal twist to them. I saw the perfect opportunity to jazz up the strawberry pattern paper from the new Berry Sweet Digital Scrapbook Kit (free for a limited time) from Peppermint Creative.

Included in this kit, are the cutest little felt strawberries. I sized the strawberries so they were exactly the same size as the ones in the pattern paper, then printed and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo  (can also be done by a steady hand!)
The beautiful thing about digital paper is that you DO NOT need a special printer! I often use a regular all in one printer and get great letter sized prints!
I added some foam stickers to the back of my strawberries to make them stand out from the paper.

Adding the strawberries over top of the ones in the pattern paper gave a great detail to my layout!

Such a simple, easy way to take pattern paper to the next level! There are other great ways to really make the most of your digital paper as well – add glitter, rhinestones, glossy accents, flock, sequins, etc.
Let the digital paper addictions begin!!
