    Awesome! Thanks so much. Can you tell me where you purchased the “Lucky Ducky” kit? The colors are beautiful and I can’t locate it on the internet. Thanks

      Thank you Sherri! Unfortunately, that kit was part of Digital Scrapper’s Premier and is no longer available. I was drawn to the colors, too!

    Great job on your first video, Carla! You added a step I hadn’t thought of—repurposing the cutout piece as an element somewhere else—nice!
