Holiday Trimmings For You

It's hard to believe that it's just a couple of days until Christmas!  Where does the time go?  If you're anything like me, you have photos from Christmases past that still need to be scrapped, and you'll be taking plenty of new photos this year.  Well, here is a kit you can use for all of them.

Holiday Trimmings brings to your scrapbook pages, cards, and paper crafting projects, the elements of a traditional Christmas.  You'll find flair ornaments, plenty of ribbons and blows, hand-cut snowflakes, and touches of glitter.  The gorgeous traditional color palette of greens, reds, and gold is perfect for Christmas photos from years past as well as the ones you'll take this year.

You can pick up Holiday Trimmings for 35% off through Friday, December 28.  You'll receive a bonus gold alpha for FREE with your purchase if you grab the kit by the 28th.

Pick it up on December 22 or 23 and you'll receive the gold alpha, plus you can take an extra 15% off using coupon code HolidayReleaseXtra15.

Here's a card I made for my colleagues at work using the kit.

And look at these gorgeous layouts by my incredibly talented D-zYn girls!




I have two freebies for you made by my D-zYn Girls.  Click the images to download.



Go and grab Holiday Trimmings now, so you can scrap your Christmas memories.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a very merry Christmas!

Santa's Heading for the Tropics!

Each year we see them... Christmas scrapbooking kits filled with deep reds and greens, sleighs, and lots and lots of snow.  It makes it very difficult for me to find Christmas kits to scrap with since I live in Florida.  So this year, I decided to solve my own problem and I'm sharing that solution with you.  Presenting...

Santa in the Tropics

This fun, whimsical kit is dedicated to and perfect for everyone whose Christmas doesn't mean cold and snow.  It's for northern hemisphere southerners, everyone south of the equator for whom Christmas is a summer holiday, people who vacation at Christmas time to escape frosty conditions, and anyone who has ever dreamed of a warm Christmas rather than a white Christmas.

Santa in the Tropics is loaded with 20 papers and more than 50 elements.  There are so many possibilities with this kit.  Just look at these layouts done by my fabulous creative team.

Now is the perfect time to pick up Santa in the Tropics!  It's 35% off through Sunday, December 16, but if you pick it up today, you can save an extra 10% by using coupon code SunnySanta10!

To get you into a sunny, warm Christmas spirit, some of my creative team members and I have made some freebies for you.

Here's my border cluster freebie.  Click the image to download.

Visit Martina's blog and Amy's blog to grab some great freebies from them!

Thanks for visiting today, and remember to keep making and scrapping your memories!

New Release and a CyberMonday Sale!

I'm so excited that my new kit Dinner at Plimoth is releasing today!  Dinner at Plimoth is my nod to the settlers and Native Americans who came together to celebrate the harvest.  I even spelled Plimoth the way they did instead of our more modern spelling of Plymouth (admit it... you thought I just spelled it incorrectly!).  

The kit is full of richly textured papers and elements.  There are fun Thanksgiving characters, including a turkey so adorable, he'll make you want to eat pizza every Thanksgiving from now on!  There are also plenty of basic, non-themed elements, making this a perfect kit to scrap your fall photos with.

You'll definitely want to pick this kit up today because it's 50% off!!!  That's just for today though, so hurry.  After today, you can save 35% by using coupon code DAP_Release35.  Note that the coupon will not work today.  There is no coupon necessary to save the 50% today.

Take a look at a couple of great layouts made with the kit.

And just in case you missed it, I made a freebie sampler pack that coordinates the kit.  It's definitely a must have, so grab it while you still can.  Just click the image to download.

So, what are you waiting for?  Go grab Dinner at Plimoth in my store at SNP!  And while you're at it, pick up some of the other kits you've had your eye on, because my entire store is on sale for CyberMonday!  Save 40% off everything,  except for Dinner at Plimoth, which is 50% off.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to keep making and scrapping those memories!

Preview and Sampler Pack Freebie!

I have created a Thanksgiving kit, that I am absolutely in love with!  It took me a bit longer than I thought it would because I agonized over every little detail, so the kit won't be released until just after Thanksgiving.  It will be perfect for scrapping pics of this year's holiday meal as well as photos of the kids in their school Thanksgiving programs!  I have a preview of it for you as well as an Add-on Sampler Pack Freebie to whet your appetite for the full kit.

As you can see, the kit is full of rich fall colors, fun characters, and detailed elements.  It's a Thanksgiving must have.  Head on over to my Facebook page, and leave a comment on the preview thread there for a chance to win the full kit when it's released!

In the meantime, you can enjoy playing with the sampler pack I've created for you.  Once you start playing with that, you're definitely going to want the whole thing!  But hurry, the sampler is only free until Sunday, November 25.  You can download the sampler by clicking the image.

Have fun with it, and keep making and scrapping those memories!

A Long Overdue Freebie

Well, they say that sometimes life throws us a curveball.  In my case, though, it was a curveball followed by a spitball.  I was cut off from my designing life for seven weeks.  Definitely not a whole lot of fun.  Things are (mostly) back to normal now, and I have just finished an absolutely adorable Halloween kit that I'm super-excited to get into my store!  But first, I owe you all a freebie.  It was my part of the August SNP blog train that I wasn't able to post.  Here it is, and enjoy!

Click image to download

I'll be back with more news in just a couple of days.  For now, have fun with this little freebie, and keep making and scrapping those memories!

Celebrating My Birthday With a Freebie and a Sale!

I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks, so I decided to celebrate my birthday for the entire month of August!  I'll be bringing you freebies, contests, and a month-long sale at my store at Scraps N Pieces!   So let's get right to the details.

If you're anything like me, you have scrapped dozens and dozens of pages of other people's birthdays - kids, spouses, significant others, parents, grandparents.  The only person you have no birthday pages for is yourself.  At least, that's how it is in my situation.  So in honor of my birthday, I'm creating a kit called It's My Party.  It's a birthday kit meant for us.  It's whimsical, bright, and fun, but not childish.  The full kit won't be released until August 27, but I have a coordinating Sampler Pack you can download for free right now!  Best of all, if you create a page with the sampler pack and upload to either my gallery at Scraps N Pieces or to my Facebook page, I'll send you a coupon for 50% off the full kit!

There's no need to wait for the end of August to pick up one of my kits, though.  As I said, my entire store is on sale.  Since I'm turning 29 (again!), my entire store with the exception of August Bits N Pieces, is on sale for 29% off through the end of August.

So, grab the freebie, pick up a new kit or two, and don't forget to post your work on my SNP gallery or Facebook page.  Now go make and keep some memories!
