Merry Little Christmas, Sale Extended, & Saying Goodbye

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone who celebrates has a wonderful time with friends and family.

This month's Mixology at GDS is a beautiful palette of Christmas reds and greens.  Each piece in "Merry Little Christmas" can be purchased for just $1.20 for the first 2 weeks and then at the regular price of $1.99.  However, my mini kit will only be available through the end of the year, so if you like it, you'd better get it now!

Why only through the end of the year? Well, I have decided to set designing on the back burner for a bit.  There are many other projects and endeavors that need my attention in 2015, so I am stepping away from design work for awhile.  I am not going to call this a "retirement" since I do hope to get back into designing once I have the time to give it the attention and dedication this craft deserves.

I want to thank everyone who has supported me and followed me these past 2 years.  It has been a fun and growing experience. Since both my shops will close at the end of the year, I will be extending my $3 - $2 - $1 sale.  Everything is under $3 at both GDS and Scrappy Bee!


Thanks again for your support and have a wonderful 2015. I wish you the very best for the upcoming year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is coming up fast!  As we consider all that we have to be thankful for, I'm sure that family is one of the first things that comes to mind.  The Go Digital Scrapbooking Mixology for this month pays tribute to family and the ties that bind.  You can Mix and Match pieces from various designers to create your own custom kit.  Each piece is marked at just $1.20 from November 24 through December 7 and then $1.99 after that.

I chose to make a a little mini kit with 4 papers and 10 elements. Click on the image below to find it in my store, or click HERE to see all the Family Ties in this month's Mixology.

Scrappy Bee also does a  Mix & Match kit each month.  I did a mini kit that will go "live" on December 1. It will be priced at just $1.00 for the first week of December, so be sure to check my store or the December Honey Pot section on the 1st.  Here is a sneak peek to peak your interest!

In addition to the $1.20 and $1.00 Mix & Match deals, the other products in both of my stores will be on sale at 50% off for Black Friday through Cyber Monday!

I'll have even more specials, products, and even a freebie for you coming in December. Stay tuned!

Fall Savings + Freebie

It's been awhile!  I took an unexpected break from designing when I came home from vacation to find my laptop would no longer power on.  I am happy to report that I now have it back and all of my files are safe and sound.  It will take me a bit to get back into the swing of things, but in the meantime, I have a SALE and a FREEBIE to share with you.

This fall themed mini kit, Smells Like Fall, is waiting for you on my Facebook Page for FREE! It will be free through the end of the month.

Hopefully I will have a new release to share with you soon.  I will definitely have something for you by the time Digital Scrapbook Day rolls around!  The first week of November will be full of great deals, and I will be giving away another full size kit as part of the GDS Daily Download program. Be sure to mark your calendars!

In The Orchard

Happy Labor Day!  Today is a holiday here in the U.S.  For me this day always brings the hope that soon we will be enjoying cooler days and that fall is just around the corner.  I love fall colors, the cool air, and the sights and smells of the season.

This month's Honey Pot Mix & Match at Scrappy Bee is perfect for ushering in fall!  The designers have all created lovely little mini kits, paper packs, and other pieces that you can mix and match to create your own custom kit.  For the first week of the month, you can purchase each piece for just $1.00!

Here is my contribution to this month's Honey Pot. Click on the image to find it in my store.

Here are some fun pages Maria created with the kit.

I also have a new FREEBIE for you on my Facebook Page. Click on the image below to find it under the "Fan Freebie" tab.

Christmas in July!

It's July! If you are like me, you are WAY behind on your scrapping. To be honest, I am still working on layouts of photos taken in 2009. My daughter turned 6 a few days ago and has yet to see herself in print. So, it's not unusual for me to be scrapping photos of water slides in December and Christmas pics in July!

With that in mind, I am putting all my Christmas and winter themed kits on sale at half price for the entire month of July. Normally these types of sales exclude collab kits, but I have JoyLynn's permission to include our "Holiday Tails" collaboration as well!

This also includes my new and improved Kris Kringle kit. This once mini kit got a massive makeover with a much more appropriate color scheme and full sized kit expansion. It includes 48 elements, 18 papers. and an alpha with uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and common symbols. The vintage feel works great with non-holiday photos as well.

So remember, Kris Kringle, Silvery White Winters, Holiday Tails, and Smells Like Christmas will all be 50% off all month long as part of my Christmas in July sale! What's Christmas without a gift or two? I have a FREE Quickpage for you here on my blog and one on my Facebook Page as well.  Click HERE or on the photo below to download your first gift.

Click HERE or on the photo below to go to my Facebook Page for the second gift.

You will notice that these quickpages were made by me and not Catherine Simon (hivart) as usual. Sadly, Catherine passed away unexpectedly in June. She was a wonderful CT member and friend and will be dearly missed.  I bid you farewell with a collage of several of the beautiful layouts she created with my products.
