Here is a brief look at some of my newest products at CU Digitals!
Newsprint Overlays Sets 1, 2, 3, and 4 are available individually, or in a Value Priced Collection. Overlays were created from American newspapers dated between the years 1888 – 1908.
Subject matter includes: : automotive, financial news, travel, health cures, books, local news, household furniture, health cures, retail clothing sales (men, women, children), gossip column, love stories, Vanderbilt news, society column, vacation rentals, music, and an article about Suffragettes invading City Hall.
Although grungy in appearance, the majority of print can be read, and the stories are fascinating! These overlays are perfect to add to backgrounds for additional interest. Experiment with blending modes and masking techniques to create different looks every time you use one of these overlays. Perfect for art journaling pages!
Here is a gorgeous layout created by Lella for your inspiration. She used a Newsprint Overlay from Set 4, a Border Buddy from Border Buddies Set 4, and paper and elements from one of my Personal Use Kits, Heartsong. Lella simply placed the overlay on a background paper and changed the Blending Mode to Soft Light. She painted a soft mask across the bottom of the newsprint, clipped her photo to the mask, and played with opacity levels until she was happy. She then added the Border Buddy and elements from Heartsong. Gorgeous!!!!
Years ago I inherited a tin of buttons from my husband’s great-grandmother, and I recently came into possession of another tin of vintage buttons from my mother-in-law. I love buttons on scrapbook pages, so decided it was time to sort through these treasures and pick out special ones to scan, extract, and put to use!
Buttons are GREAT additions to scrapbook pages or projects. They can anchor photos, elements, and/or paper blocks. I like to tuck them into clusters, or line a few of them up along the edge of stacked papers. There is no limit to their versatility. Here are some of my favorites!
Here are a few of my favorite products at CU Digitals! I hope you will find them useful as your create your own scrapbook pages or projects!

I have a Buttons Sampler for you today! These buttons are all, most likely, from a hundred years ago, as they came from my husband’s grandmother’s button tin. I wish I could know how they were used, what items of clothing they were on… I can only imagine the stories they might tell, if they could!
