The Shabby Princess

Or the SP as everyone calls her. Let’s face it, she rocks. She’s been sharing FREE digital scrapbooking kits for over six years. That’s six years full of beautiful brads, buttons, flowers, alphabets and a ton of other beautiful creations. If you haven’t already, we suggest you sign up for her free newsletter.

Divine Digital

With a mix of free and inexpensive scrapbooking kits, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for. Plus the site is easy to use. Check out her Scooled collection, which includes fun art embellishments (perfect for turning your kid’s art into an art book) and her seasonal collections.

The Daily Digi

Free and inexpensive scrapbooking kits. If you’re new to embellishments, check out her DigisScrapbooking Manual.It’s full of great tutorials, technical how-to’s and artsy suggestions. It’s a must read. She also offers digiscrapping classes.

Delicious Scraps

Everything is 99 cents here, which is quite a bargain. Overall, the collection is a bit soft and may not be eclectic enough for all tastes but you can find some very beautiful kits and one-offs.

Digital Photo Book Pages

Mary, one of our Picaboo Pros, is a digiscrapping expert. She creates her own embellishments, designs and has an amazing site full of how-to’s, layouts and great advice. You’ll want to bookmark this page.

My Memories

This is a great site. It’s full of creative ideas, tutorials and it’s nicely organized. I haven’t taken any of the classes but I’ve heard good things from some of our Picaboo Pros.

Blog Train Blogspot

Shauna recommends this site as it’s a great way to meet new designers. Each month they choose a theme and color scheme and several designers submit mini-kits that align with the theme and colors. This site offers a mix of free and inexpensive kits.

Designs by Krista

This site is full of cute seasonal kits. You can find great seasonal kits starting at just $1. For December, check out her “Festival Fun” kit. It’s adorable and would add real fun to a kid’s book!

 A Cherry on Top

This site feels like a department store. There are many departments and tons of kits and one-off embellishments to choose from. You may want to set aside extra time to search through this site as it’s a bit hard to navigate. But it’s worth it.

Peppermint Creative

This site has it all. Great looking and creative kits, a gallery featuring fun and innovative layouts and even a phrase guide where you can find the perfect quote for any themed-book. And each month features a different free download. This month is Game Night. How fun is that!
