Signs of spring and a free add-on

It has taken a bit longer than usual for spring to get here this year but this was the first week we finally got some signs of spring and the snow finally started to melt. To celebrate that I made another spring themed journal card pack. The set is called Spring Melody Journal Cards and they are available in my Etsy shop here. There's a total of 18 journal cards in yummy greenish colors in the set. I really enjoyed making these and I hope you like the result.


The journal cards were inspired by my kit called Spring Melody that's also available in my shop. The kit is packed with cute elements, an alpha set and nine papers.


I've also got a free add-on pack of journal cards for you. You can download them here. Enjoy! :)

I'm back with new products and a freebie :)

It's been quiet here for a reeeeeally long time even though that wasn't my intention. Sorry about that! I quit digital designing and scrapbooking altogether in the beginning of 2010 in order to concentrate on studying and other things. I didn't even visit many scrapbooking sites since that. However, a few months ago I came across Project Life scrapbooking system while reading a few blogs and realized that was just the thing for me. So, I started making my yearly photo album with Project Life system and surfed through a lot of traditional and digital scrapbooking web stores to buy products for making my album. And during that time the inspiration to try my hand in designing again came back and I started making my own journaling cards. At the same time I realized how much I liked designing and missed all you guys and decided to start making my designs available again.

However, this time I wanted to do it in a more relaxed way in my own pace and so I've opened an Etsy shop under the name designsbymira since Mira Designs wasn't available. I'm still using Mira Designs as my designer name because that's what I'm used to and some of you might still remember me by that (hope that's not too confusing). I'm slowly going to fill the shop with new Project Life/pocket style scrapbooking journaling card sets. I'm also going through my old scrapbooking kits and element packs and adding my favourites to the shop as well in case someone's still interested in them. And to celebrate the opening, I'm having a sale in my shop. That means you'll get 30 % off from your order with this coupon, OPENINGDISCOUNT. :)

So, I guess you'll want to see my first new products. :) Since it's Easter, I wanted to make something for Easter pages and I used my old kit, Joys of Spring, as inspiration and made an Easter themed journaling card set to match. It turned out really fresh and cute if you don't mind me saying so. ;) It's called Easter-ific and it's available in my Etsy shop here. I've also got a matching journaling card freebie in the end of this post so be sure to check it out.


Here's my Project Life album pages for the weeks 12 and 13 using some of these journaling cards. The colors are a bit off in the photos but you'll get the idea. I usually make only one page of each week. That way it's easier for me to keep up when I don't have to stress about filling up an entire spread each week.




And this is the matching kit, Joys of Spring, that I also added to the shop. I updated the kit a little bit from the original to better match my current style and changed a few papers and elements altogether. Hope you like it.



I also made a journaling card calendar set that you can find here. The cards are sized 6x4 and they are easy to recolor to match your layouts.


I added a couple of my old products to the shop as well. First, Printed Kraft Papers that you can find here.



These cute Bobby Pins.


 And my Stitched Newspaper Alpha.



And finally, here's the Easter-ific journaling card freebie for you to download. Hope you like it and thanks so much for visiting my blog! :)
