I still have not finished the kit I am making for my parents. I ran into some disappointments after purchasing what I was lead to believe were vector graphics. I was under some delusion that vector graphics were scalable however this was not the case in the purchases I made. I was so disappointed and feel I wasted my money. A majority of the items are small and totally useless. It’s sad too because the store I bought these vector graphics at is supposed to be very popular and 3 of my favourite designers sell there. I see a lot of their stuff used by designers. I don’t have the heart to email the person and tell them how disappointed I am. It’s not the first time I have felt this way when buying digital scrapbooking stuff online but that purchase was my last.
One time I got a private message in a forum I belonged to from one of the designers who said she had some stitches for me. So I went and got them and they were pure junk and not even stitches but a bunch of black messes. I never went back to that forum. They try to contact me repeatedly but I never respond. It’s been almost a year and they still keep emailing me. Another time I bought some paper flowers and they were all small and blurry. Another time I bought some overlays and they were totally useless. Another time I bought some buttons, man were they tiny and totally useless. I really should be able to resize the stuff I buy since the seller has no idea what a customer is going to use the items for. And all this from reputable designers. Just goes to show even they rip people off for I really felt ripped off. I do buy from some great designers and have had no problems with them and that’s probably why I continue to buy their stuff. In my future I will be happier buying my stuff from the store which can’t rip me off unless I am totally blind. So goodbye to digital scrapping and hello again to full-time hybrid scrapping.
So I gave up on continuing with the kit for my parents for now so I could at least make something for you before I say goodbye to you all. Mind you I put this together rather quickly so there isn’t any fancy stuff in it. Just some basics. But I hope you can use at least some of it in your projects. I did include 3 of the disappointing supposed vectors in it, one of which I resize and had to bevel the hell out of it to make it look at least somewhat decent from all those jaggies. The other 2 I just left them at the sizes that were given to me at. Sad. But anyway, here’s a not all shown preview.
There is a totally of 40 papers and 95 elements. Not all shown relates to the papers, and I just selected one colour of an element, but you at least know what you are getting. The kit is quite the size too, 457mb, so I had to break it up into 4 papers and 2 ellies.

I won’t be deleting anything in my Media Fire account so everything will be there for you in case you need any of it in the future. I won’t be deleting my blogger or my WordPress blogs either in case you need a picture of what is at Media Fire.
Tyler has one more week of school, and Joe 2 more weeks of work. We are having a big bash this weekend for their birthdays. Next weekend I am heading up to the cottage and the boys will take care of everything in the city until they come up. They can do it all without me now. Tyler is quite the teenager now and doesn’t really need me for anything anymore. Which is so cool. He’ll be getting his license this summer and will be taking a driving course. I won’t be back in the city till school starts again in September and then I will be returning to the work force. I want to save for retirement which consist of travelling the world, if there is still a world to be travelled at that time. It’s in quite the mess right now and if things continue on this downward spiral there may even be a WW 3 before we retire.
I want to thank everyone in the Digital Scrap World. You’re Awesome! Keep up the great work and much success to all of you.
So that is it from me. I wish you all the best in your life. Much Love to you all.
