My First Digital Scrapbooking Kit

I've previously written a post about digital scrapbooking. (Click here to see it.) I mentioned that I wanted to start creating some of my own papers and embellishments for use in my pages. I finally started playing around with this recently, and I completed my first digital kit.

I started by creating a 12x12 paper design, around which I would base the entire kit. I kept it pretty simple, using easy geometric shapes and an uncomplicated design.



I then created some more papers to complement the main design.



No scrapbooking kit would be complete without it's various embellishments and alphabet. Again, nothing too complicated. I simply repeated colors and shapes used in the papers to create ribbons, buttons, and letters.

Below is a sample page I created using my newly designed kit. As in my previous scrapbooking post, this page features my cat, Sally.

New Etsy Shop and Free Pattern

I opened up a shop on etsy.com today. I've posted some sweaters for 11.5-inch dolls (I hope to post other types of items in the future). You can visit the shop here . These miniature sweaters were very fun to create. They are all designed and handknit by myself. Most of the sweaters are knit using size 10 crochet thread and sock knitting needles. I like using the crochet thread because it is relatively inexpensive, comes in a wide array of colors, and is readily available from any store that sells craft supplies. Here is a free pattern for a basic sweater, for those who would like to try making one yourself! **UPDATE - 2015** The miniature sweater knitting pattern has been revised.  View/Download the new pattern here: DOWNLOAD A gift tag template for creating a Christmas ornament from this sweater can be found on my  Templates and Patterns  page. 

Niki Knits: Doll Accessories (free pattern)

Well, it's November already, and that means a very busy month for me. Not only am I preparing for the upcoming holidays and a baby (!), I am also getting ready for the Annual Keene Holiday Craft Show that I attend each year in my hometown on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. It is organized by my mom, Kellie Jones, and this will be its 10th year! For the past several years, I have been making and selling crafts myself at the show. Each year has been different. I have sold doll clothes, art prints, gift tags, knitting patterns, and Christmas ornaments. This year, I decided to focus on assorted handmade toys for kids. I will be writing a more extensive post later on in the month showcasing some of the products I have made (I am VERY excited about them.), but for now, I am just going to give a small preview, along with a free pattern. As you may know, I've made miniature knitted sweaters for Barbie dolls in the past. This year, I created some new patterns for some kni

Niki Knits: Baby Vests (with free pattern)

As I revealed previously , I am currently pregnant with my first child, a girl. I am due in December, and my husband and I are so excited. In my return to crafting, I've once again been bitten by the knitting bug. This is in large part due to the fact that now I have a new area to explore: baby clothes. And not just for my own little angel... There has been a small baby boom recently in my circle of friends, so there are a few other little ones on the way that I have been busy making gifts for as well. Much of the appeal of making baby clothes (besides the obvious adorableness) is similar to why I like making doll clothes. They are fun to design and execute, and the small scale keeps projects relatively quick and easy, which suits my short attention span. (Case in point: my adult-size fisherman cable sweater that I've been working on for probably 5+ years...not to mention all the other projects I've abandoned altogether because I got bored with them.) I started out
