I'm All In

Well, it’s time for the unveiling of my second effort from my evening and weekend hobby!

The layout above combined several challenges for a few Scrapbooking sites. It is also my “demo page” for “I’m All In,” the theme song for High Stakes Poker on GSN and the second scrapbooking kit from Digitalegacies! I suppose at some point I may design a “regular kit.” But really, I don’t have any trouble finding kits in my favorite colors with pretty flowers, sweet ribbons and glitzy sparklies. My scrapbook pages are full of very pretty pages made with those sorts of elements. Where my designing inspiration comes from is when I want elements that I can’t find from other designers. I guess I figure that’s where there is a need to be filled! At least there is for me and if there is anyone who is looking for the same thing, I want to share!

So this kit is made for poker layouts. Whether it’s memories from a trip to Vegas, a Vegas Night church social or good friends getting together for a friendly game, “I’m All In,” catches the fun spirit of poker night. Hey, my 13-year old nieces know how to play Texas Hold’em, so the possibilities for this kit are endless and ageless!

“I’m All In” is a decent sized kit with lots of elements and a full alpha. It’s my first try at making an alphabet. I think it turned out okay for a first time. It’s a lot of work making an alpha and not as easy as it seems. I can see why there aren’t a ton of kits that have them at all, let alone upper AND lower case! This one has both cases, numbers and a few symbols of assorted colors based on chip stacks. I think it’s a decent accompaniment for the kit.

With “I’m All In” you’ll get:

10 papers
26 elements including:
2 frames
7 poker chips elements
5 cards elements
3 word art
1 label
1 journal block
1 FULL alpha with upper and lower case letters
numbers, and the symbols !, ?, &, *, # and ?

I hope you enjoy the kit. If you know someone who’d like a copy, please send them here to download it and of course, if you use the kit for a layout you post online, please send me a link so I can see it or maybe even post it on The Chronicles of Nani!
