:FIVE FAVES: A little digi love for Valentine's Day...

First off, if you follow my blog, I think you'll know that I'm not a digi scrapper. However, there are so many great digital scrapbooking products out there that I think they deserve their own highlight now and then.

Also, even if you're a traditional scrapper like me, that doesn't have to stop you from adding a little digi to your layouts now and then. Most digi papers and elements are easily printable for inclusion on your traditional layouts. Even better, they can also often be customized before printing to coordinate perfectly with the project at hand.

Here are a few of my favorite Valentine's Day themed digi items currently available over at Two Peas.

There is also a larger coordinating kit that goes along with this particular digital paper pack, but I just LOVE the intersecting circle design on these. Also take into account that turquoise and red is one of my current fav color combinations and you've got a winner in my book!

OR, if you want to give digital scrapbooking a go...the easy way...pop a few photos into this finished digital template and your done! Undoubtably the fastest page you'll ever complete! If you want a copy to add into your album, you can order it through a site like http://www.scrapbookpictures.com/ that specializes in scrapbooker friendly sizes.

Here's a few super simple, yet super cute, images that would be great to use as titles or page embellishments.

Every scrapbooker loves stickers!! Print these out on sticker paper, cut out and you're good to go!

Journaling is a big part of most of my layouts, so it's always fun to have a cute spot to write your thoughts.

One thing to keep in mind with digital scrapbooking elements is that most providers often offer two levels of purchase - personal and commercial. If you are just planning on using the items for your personal projects, the personal license will be just fine for you. However, if you are planning on using them for cards or other items that you might sell for profit, you'll want to purchase the item under the commercial license. Really, it's still a good investment as you can use the elements an unlimited number of times (unlike traditional scrapbooking products).
