Looking for a digi kit...

I've been looking all over the internet for a Mexican theme kit and I can't seem to find one. Sad I found a couple but one the links didn't work (both freebies) and the other ones images are super tiny. Why is it that some people who make kits don't know that papers should be at least between 3200x3200 pixels and not oh let's say 600x600 or 1000x1000. I guess that's why they are called freebies huh? Blum 3 I also been looking at online shops for some Mexican themed kit and can't find one either. I wish I was good at graphics and stuff and I'd make my own kit. Heck, I can probably just go around taking pictures of the mexican type things I have in my house and make a mini kit but I don't have the time or the patience for that and It would probably look horrible Blum 3 anway..i guess this turned into a vent lol sorry. The other day I also downloaded another freebie, and the images were so small it was unbelievable! lol And yet the person who posted them said "do not this and do not that" but I could tell she took some images from gettyimages for example because the watermark was still on there. I am guessing things don't print right if they are small to begin with and you enlarge them in photoshop right? I mean, sometimes they look "ok" but then I go to 100% and they are pretty blurry.

so if any of you ever come across a mexican themed digi kit even if it costs money..let me know Smile i am working on a LO of my parents. I found one kit that I could use for now. But it isn't that great and the images are sorta small. thanks!

I'll take a look for you at my haunts Smile And yes, I get annoyed with some designers too and their freebies. The point is that it still needs to be good quality, even if it's free!!!!

I've come across a couple of mexico themed kits now but all of them have been really silly. The one that I have now, the images are small but I can work with them to a point. They are too horrible looking so I had to photoshop them Blum 3 I had to google a decent sized photo of a Molcajete (the thing used to make salsa) and I extracted it and put it on my LO Blum 3 Oh and omg.. I went to this one website where they had $5 kits and one of them was a mexico theme and it looked HORRIBLE!! And had very very few items. The one I bought for $1 yesterday ($1 Wednesdays) are soooo much better and 3x as much stuff in em. Crazy!

BTW - the tiny sized ones - they are probably tagger sized - meant for web use, not what we do!
