This course is full of step-by-step instructions and videos that you can watch at your convenience. Plus, you’re getting exclusive PLC assets that aren’t available anywhere else. By the end of the course, you’ll be a paper-making machine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some assets will work in Canva but Photoshop is definitely the way to go to get the full value of Paper Mill. Affinity and Photoshop Elements can also work but please understand the videos are recorded in Photoshop CC. 

You’ll have to buy your own subscription to Adobe Photoshop to use the software with this program. We’ll show you how to get the software for only $9.99/month if you don't already have access to Photoshop!

You’ll need Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) for the smoothest experience, but students can also use Photoshop CS5 or CS6 to follow along! If you use Photoshop Elements, the layout will be different and all the tools we go over may not be accessible to you. If you don’t already have Photoshop, we’ll show you how to access it.

Paper Mill and Design Business in a Box are two very different courses. Paper Mill is specific to designing digital papers which is touched on very briefly in DBB. It's kind of like comparing apples and oranges. Paper Mill also has design assets and my source files (which DBB doesn't have).

Everything inside Paper Mill, including the design assets and bonuses, has never been released before. All of the assets are exclusive to Paper Mill and won't be available outside of the course. The Bonuses are also unique to Paper Mill.

Join Paper Mill and Learn How to Design Your Own Digital Papers!

Get my exact step-by-step process in how I create digital papers. I’m sharing what I’ve learned in over ten years of designing. 

Hi, I’m Kelli Mitchell, founder of Pink Lemonade Company.

In 2009, while finishing up my bachelor’s degree in IT and Web Design, I started my design business offering website and graphic design to hundreds of businesses.

As someone who has created programs and courses and been running a creative business for over 10 years, I always find my way back to my love of creating digital papers and using Photoshop. It’s been incredible that I’ve able to sell thousands of digital paper sets and build a business to support my life from creating in Photoshop but it’s also been such a hobby of mine. I still love how enjoyable it is to sit down with a glass of tea, open up Photoshop, and create a fresh set of papers. It is truly one of my favorite things to do. And I’m so happy that I get to teach you all I’ve learned. This is available to you as well.  

Whether you are wanting to learn for personal use, you decide to sell what you’ve created, or maybe a bit of both, this course is truly going to be one of your favorites.
