Tiny Miracles Collection

Tiny Miracles

Every birth is a blessing and every baby is a tiny miracle. But, the arrival of a preemie is so scary and beautiful at the same time. You get a small glimpse of this tiny creature created by our Heavenly Father. Thanks to modern medicine, most of these tiny babies now have a good chance of survival.

Recently, I became a grandmother of a little girl, Jessica. This alone is a blessing, but my granddaughter decided to come into the world 9 weeks early! I created this kit in Jessica's honor; While the kit is designed for preemies, twins, and triplets, I also made sure that most of it would work equally well for any newborn. The colors and embroidery pieces are "pure nursery"; pink, baby blue, yellow, fresh green, and lavender in the perfect soft shades designed to be mixed and matched for as many combinations as you want!

Tiny Miracles by Paula Yagisawa

Included:
25 patterned papers (tiny prints that won't overpower your baby's pictures)
5 embroidered frames
6 embroidery elements
5 metal rimmed buttons with optional stitching files
8 metal hardware pieces (brad, eyelet, prong, staple, anchor plate, paperclip, and two arrows)
Double Ribbons in five colors: page tie, photo wrap, and little knot
5 large tags
5 small metal rimmed tags

I used my Tiny Miracles kit, created in honor of my preemie granddaughter Jessica - but these pages are perfect for any newborn. Both boy and girl sets are included with a single purchase - so you don't have to buy separately if you need both.

Denim Collection

Blue Jeans & Butterflies Mini Theme Kit

How much blue jean fun can I pack into one small kit? - a LOT! With denim papers and blue jean pockets, I've loaded it with the texture of America (and the world). Then, what girl's blue jean wardrobe would be complete without the addition of butterflies? So, I've added embroidered butterflies that look so much like the ones my oldest daughter had stitched to her jeans when she was young! Tags, stitching, ribbons, gel butterflies and even beads just add to the fun!

Included:
9 papers
2 denim pockets
2 embroidery elements
3 tags
2 lines of straight long stitches
2 lines of cross stitching
2 ribbon knots
2 ribbon wraps
3 gel stickers
1 string of beads

Blue Jean Clusters

If you love blue jeans and convenience, then this set is for you! I've made four "clusters" that are each 12 inches wide by several inches tall. They are basically a quick page without a background. But no worries - I've also included five papers! So, these can be mixed and matched to create 20 combinations!!!! If you use them along with the Blue Jeans and Butterflies Mini Kit - you'll have even more variations!

Included:
four 12-inch wide clusters
five denim backgrounds

Denim & Lace Alpha

While creating my "Blue Jeans and Butterflies" kit, I had this idea for an alphabet... and I just had to see if it would work out. The results are as wonderful as I could have imagined! Each large letter/character is a base of denim with the stitching and seams included. Then, I added a bit of digital lace and some digital jewels scaled perfectly for the letter. These letters are so big you'll find yourself needed to reduce their size most of the time - but when you want them big... they are big!

Included:
full upper case alphabet
full set of numbers
six extra characters

Icy Winter Kits!

Icy Winter Blues


There's no reason to buy a "full sized kit" when you can find a mini that is packed this full of beautiful winter goodies! For this portion of my Icy Winter series, I've stuck with a few beautiful shades of blue and added glitter and shine along with my trademark embroidery. This mini kit has over 30 pieces and won't feel anything like a mini kit while you are using it!

At Divine Digitals

Icy Winter Fun


I started out by making Icy Winter Blues, but I soon found that I couldn't stop with just the blues or just one mini kit! So, I added pink and lavender to the beautiful blues and created an all new mini kit. Don't think for a single moment that this is "the same kit with different colors" - the elements and papers are all new! But, the two kits coordinate perfectly.

Icy Winter Combo


Icy Winter Blues and Icy Winter Fun are two fantastic mini kits that are designed to be used together. If you want both, then this is the way to go. I've bundled them into one combo pack and included a bonus snowflake alphabet (26 letters, 10 numbers, and an extra worn paper) that coordinates with both kits!



Save even more - I've discounted this kit (wherever it wasn't already on sale) to save you even more money!

Playful Penguins Alpha

These playful penguins weren't done playing around.... they wanted to be an alphabet too! I've created a full set of 26 letters and 10 numbers to match the Playful Penguins Mini Kit (see my blog for information on how to collect parts of this kit!) I've also included a single "sheet" with all of the plain letters and numbers so you can use them to add to the penguin letters for even more options.

A Family Tradition

Summer is always such a wonderful time for family reunions and other get-togethers. And what better opportunity for pictures than a family reunion?!? But, this kit works great for so much more! I started the kit with family reunion pictures in mind, but also remembered all those great family reunions I went to as a child.

This kit works great for ANY family pictures - men or women, young or old. And, the slightly aged color scheme works wonderfully with vintage pictures! I included such a wide variety of elements that you will find yourself using this kit over and over!

Included:
21 papers
5 assorted frames
1 border and 4 tiles to co-ordinate with one of the frames
9 stitching files (3 styles - 3 colors)
3 tags (all different)
9 ribbon files (3 different groupings of 3 ribbons - all different!)
3 cord files (all different)
2 lace files
envelope (with front and back pieces also included)
1 cross stitch border
5 embroidery files
4 beaded words
1 file label (great for labeling who is who on your LO!)
bookplate - with and without paper insert
6 buttons (3 styles - each in two colors)
6 charms and chain
3 cardboard pieces


*** All of my kits, elements, and templates are now S4H friendly!

A Family Tradition Quick Pages

What can I say? My team and I just LOVE working with this kit! They've helped me out by creating several quick pages for this item. This grouping of pages is great on their own or they make a wonderful addition to the other parts of the series.

Each page is ready to use and has appropriate shadows in place. You just need to add your pictures and journaling and you'll have finished layouts ready to print and share!

Special thanks to Amy, Lorraine, and Monica for creating pages for me.

Included:
6 .png quick pages - 12x12 inches - 300dpi

A Family Tradition Clusters
Using my wonderfully rich kit, A Family Tradition, I created these fun and easy to use page clusters. These are like a quick page - but even better! You can mix and match the papers with the clusters for your own custom look. And, when combined with the main kit - you have endless options for unique pages!

Each cluster is "full sized" - either 12 inches wide or 12 inches tall. They are 300 dpi and include built in shadows. You simply pick the paper - place the desired cluster over the paper and position as desired - then add your pictures and journaling!

Included:
5 papers
4 page sized clusters (each one is 12 inches wide or tall)

*** All of my kits, elements, and templates are now S4H friendly!
