Ok, here’s my first ever review of a digital scrapbook kit.
I am starting today with the first scrapbook collection in my stash and this happens to be: #believeinmagic: First Kiss Collection by Amber Shaw & Studio Flergs

When it comes to the Believe in Magic (BIM) digital scrapbook collections by Amber and Flergs I’m really fascinated. The theme, the colors, the elements — everything on the preview makes me want to HAVE it!

I try to purchase the BIM collections (not the kit only) whenever I can. I think First Kiss was one of my first Believe in Magic (BIM) purchases.
Let’s see what’s inside this digital scrapbook beauty…


Patterned, solids and shimmers - digital scrapbook paper
All the paper in the collection

42 papers total = 8 solids, 14 shimmers and 19 patterned.

Let’s take a closer look at the so called “shimmers”:

As you can see, those are basically light patterned paper with delicate shimmery feel. They sparkle beautifully on your page to make it super special.

To be honest, I sometimes purchase the whole collection BECAUSE of the shimmers — they really tempt me ’cause I love me some bling 🙂

Let’s move on to…


Total of 18 cards

18 cards total.

As a non-native English speaker I honestly don’t pay much attention to cards because I don’t usually journal in English on my pages but that’s a whole different story.

However, there’s those blank cards that let you write whatever you want and I admit I love them. As you can see, this kit has 5 blank cards – each in a horizontal and vertical direction which makes a total of 10 blanks cards for some free journaling and documenting — that’s sooo cool!
The others are nice magical designs and/or quotes to enhance any princess or themed layout.

If you are into pocket scrapping, then those cards are a must for your projects.


Pretty scatters

9 scatterz total.

Oh my GOD!!! I seriously think Flergs should offer Kit+scatterz in a bundle because those are definitely a must for me.

I have noticed that these beauties enhance the outlook of my pages at an instant. If you use a plain/solid background and insert a scatter behind the photo, your page is almost complete.

Take a look at those pre-shadowed pretties:

Those are just the three pre-clustered designs and there’s 6 more scattered stars/hearts/sequins which you already saw in the first image above.



75 sleeping beauty themed digital scrapbook elements
75 pretty themed elements

75 total (excluding the scatters)

Whenever I think of a princess page I think of flowers, ribbons, glitter and sparkle. The romantic First Kiss scrapbook collection has it all when it comes to elements. There are those pretty banners, two pink bows, a variety of buttons, labels and glittery accents and LOTS of amazingly beautiful flowers. I cannot imagine a princess layout without pretty florals.
There’s also those royal elements like the crowns, ornate frames and trims. A few Sleeping beauty related elements, like the spinning wheel, are also included. To complete each and every layout there’s also a variety of word strips and titles — all magical and all beautiful.


Was I satisfied with my purchase? Yes, yes, yes!!!
Why did I purchase it? Because I loved the colors and the theme. I don’t really have little girl photos to scrap but I just had to have this in my stash.
Do I recommend buying the collection? Yes! If you have a daughter or you are into beautiful fairytale and princess stuff, don’t hesitate – this collection is worth it.
