Calling all aspiring papermakers, hobbyists, creative business owners, digital graphics enthusiasts, and scrapbookers...

What if you could easily learn how to create gorgeous digital papers in 30 days or less?

I remember the very first time I sold a digital paper on Etsy for $3. It might as well been a million dollars because it felt like it. It was the easiest way I had ever earned money and that moment was just the beginning. 

When I started creating digital papers and other digital art in Photoshop over ten years ago, I stumbled upon a whole new world of possibility for myself (and my family). 

I unlocked a new way to use my creativity to light up my soul (and my bank account). And, now, I’m handing you the key.

There are not only SO MANY REASONS to create your own digital paper but so many different types, and I’m showing you exactly how you can EASILY create your own.

Whether you’re a beginner or have some digital design experience under your belt, you’re in the right place if you want to learn new skills or build on the ones you already have.


Paper Mill gives you the know-how as well as the assets, secrets, and shortcuts to design digital papers for all your creative needs!

Whether you enjoy creating for personal use or you want to learn a skill you can make money from this is one course that will quickly become your favorite!

Creating digital papers is not only FUN and RELAXING, but you might just stumble on a new hobby that puts you on a new path to SELL WHAT YOU CREATE!

“I wasn’t even looking to sell my papers but making extra income this way is so easy and fun!”

“When I joined Paper Mill, I had NO plans to sell the papers I created. I just wanted to learn Photoshop and create digital papers for the scrapbooking I do for my kids. O.M.G. I posted some of my scrapbook/digital papers online and I had some other mothers ask if they could purchase them. Fast forward a few months into Paper Mill – I’m now selling my digital papers on Etsy and have a bonafide side hustle! 🙂🥰 I highly recommend this course. Kelli gives you everything you need to create digital papers and more!”

“Worth Every Penny!”

“I have taken several courses from Kelli and Pink Lemonade Company. I loved Design Business in a Box but Paper Mill is my new favorite! Worth every penny. I knew Photoshop pretty well but I still learned so much more from this course. And I use the design resources all the time that Kelli so generously provided. I honestly wasn’t sure I even wanted to create digital papers but I decided to join the course and I’m so glad I did. Digital papers are the gateway to a full-blown graphics addiction! LOL! Kelli helped me become a creative machine! “

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Canva work for Paper Mill?

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. 

Is Photoshop included with the purchase of this course?

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!

Which version of Photoshop do I need?

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.

Does this course go over the same lessons that are covered in Design Business in a Box?

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).

Are the design assets and bonuses inside Paper Mill different from the ones that are in PLC Insiders or other PLC courses?

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. 

How long do I have access to this course?

You get lifetime access to Paper Mill! That means you have unlimited access to this course for the life of the course. And lifetime updates to the course at included at no additional cost. If we add in new modules, or trainings, you automatically get the updated access.

Is this a go-at-your-own-pace program?

Yes! You can complete the lessons on your schedule. The lessons are pre-recorded and you get access to everything from Day One. 

Can I sell what I create from the Paper Mill tutorials?

Absolutely! A Commercial license is included in the course. You can sell what you create but you’re not allowed to sell the assets, digital papers that are included, or any other element of the course. Everything we give you is meant to be used as a supply. You’re welcome to sell your finished product as long as it is your own original work. If you need any clarification on this or our terms of use, please contact us. We’re happy to help. 

Do you offer refunds?

We do not. And here’s why… Because we know the value you’ll find in this program AND because of the digital nature of this course (you can’t return it). We give you access to everything from Day One. Please contact us with any questions before you enroll so that you can be 100% confident in your purchase. We have been creating courses for many years at PLC and we have had hundreds and hundreds of satisfied customers so we know you’ll love the content inside.

When you invest in yourself, and try something new, it leads to something good. 

“I tried on my own but always gave up. Now I have a digital design business!”

“I joined Paper Mill because I wanted to sell something online and start a new business even though I wasn’t sure I could make it work. I went through the course and was hooked right away. Kelli breaks it down so easily. I used to be so scared of Photoshop because it didn’t make sense to me at all. I tried on my own but always gave up. I also enrolled in Design Business in a Box and now sell digital graphics and papers on my website. Love both of these courses! Thank you Kelli! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”

I waited until the last day to join because I wasn't sure I wanted to invest the money AND I wasn't sure I wanted to learn how to create digital papers. BUT I'm so glad I did. I was blown away but all the amazing content within this course. And, I was able to take the skills I learned and now I create even more things in Photoshop. Highly recommend Paper Mill!

I was so nervous about joining Paper Mill. I didn't want to spend money on Photoshop even though it's like $10/month. And I really didn't want to spend money on the course even though I couldn't stop thinking about it. I'm SO glad I did. Kelli doesn't know it - but she is my new BFF. 😁 This course is worth gold. I can create so many things in Photoshop beyond just paper because of what I learned in Paper Mill.

Hi, I’m Kelli Mitchell, founder of Pink Lemonade Company. When I started creating digital papers and other digital art in Photoshop over ten years ago, I opened a whole new world of possibility for myself and my family. I’ve now helped thousands of women find their own possibilities. 

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 has 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 been able to sell thousands of digital paper sets and build a business to support my life by 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. I had no idea my first $3 sale from a digital paper on Etsy would lead me to where I am today but I’m so grateful. 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.
