SNP April Blog Train and 3 New Releases!

I have been MIA a lot lately.  2014 has been a very hard winter for me, not only from the weather perspective.  Long story short, my health has been giving me fits and I haven't been able to work as much as I want to.  I still have all these ideas inside me, but I just don't have the stamina to get them out.

Anyway here is my bit of the SNP Blog Train:

New Releases

I do have a couple of things to tell you about my stores.  Don't get confused, but I have a couple of kits available.  See, I have been designing, I just haven't been able to get as much done as I want to and I always seem to be playing catch-up.  But…  I have a new release at SNP

It Looks Familiar

This kit should look familiar!  Not because you've seen the kit before -- it's brand new.  No, this kit was made to coordinate with my part from the blog train and it was made using old familiar items you don't see used a lot anymore.  Things like a handheld folding fan, an old key, and a clothespin.  

I have a little bonus for you.   Buy the kit for $5.99 and you get the bonus for free.  It is available exclusively at Scraps N Pieces until May 1st.  On May 1st I will be adding it to all my stores.


Simple Pleasures
Now, here's another kit I made a while ago.  If you shop at GoDigital Scrapbooking, you will already have seen it as part of the April Mixology.  Well, I've packed it up in a bundle and it's now available at all of my stores.  As a little gift for Easter I have put the bundle on sale from April 17th until April 22nd  for only $4.99!


Je suis content
Finally, a small kit that is available exclusively in my GoDigital Scrapbooking store, and soon will be available in all of my stores:



This was the kit used at GDS for Week 1 of the Supreme Team contest that is running right now.  I have the kit on sale for only $2.49 right now.  Some of the contestants were a bit nervous about the colours at first, others absolutely loved the colours immediately; but once the layouts were made they all agreed that this kit was amazing to work with.  The colours actually work for so many different pages -- we had a beautiful vintage page turned in, a lovely Mexican vacation page, several baby photo LOs, boy pages, girl pages, graduation, pets, and on and on and on.

In addition to designing I've been busy adding inventory to my shop. Yesterday I added 4 new kits, 2 new alphas and 3 coordinating add-on packs!

Love is Patient

A new release from True North Scraps

Love is Patient



This very pretty kit is full of affection!  There are plenty of hearts, Cupid, a love bug as well as many other beautiful elements, making a total of 50 elements.  The papers consist of 6 plain cardstocks and 18 very pretty patterned papers.  I have included a full alpha with numbers, uppercase, lowercase and some punctuation.

Additionally, for those of us who find time at a premium or might be in a creative slump, I have some quick pages available separately.  Just add photos, maybe an extra few elements and a title made with the alpha from the kit and you are finished super-fast!


The kit and the quick pages are available at all three of my stores -- Scraps N Pieces, GoDigital Scrapbooking and Heritage Scrap.  And you can get them on sale for 30% off until March 10th.


Do you check the TOUs of designers when you download their kits?  Sometimes it's worthwhile… just sayin'…  ;)

This kit is so pretty and easy to work with, but just in case you need a little inspiration, take a look at these fantastic LOs made by the North Stars


Some of the fantastic NorthStars have made you freebies.  Time for a mini blog hop:


Don't forget to check the True North Scraps Facebook page or subscribe to the True North Scraps newsletter.  Sometimes there are little extras available only to these special people!

Scraps N Pieces: Two Amazing Collabs this Month

Even though the calendar says March, it still feels like winter in so many places right now.  When will we ever start to feel some warm spring air?  Around Scraps N Pieces, we have been keeping ourselves warm by designing some amazing products for you, our awesome members and customers.

Are you a fan of the art journaling style of scrapping?  If you are, then you are going to LOVE the store's March collab kit.  It's called Express Yourself, and it is awesome!

Do you know the definition of earworm?  It's defined as, "a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person's mind."  And I think the music-themed Bits N Pieces for March will be running through your mind all month until you snatch them all up.  The pieces are just $1 each the first week, and then will regular price and possibly bundled up into full kits.  And don't forget our Bit N Pieces month-long challenge; snag some great kits at a low price and earn forum points in the process.

Our members mean so very much to us.  The 3-year old son of one our members was just recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer last week. This is something they would have never thought would happen to their family.  It is Stage 4, as this type of cancer is often not symptomatic until that time. He will have to go through some aggressive chemo, then surgery to remove his tumor, then more chemo. There is a 40-50% survival rate, but his doctors are very optimistic. This family has 3 other small children and a new baby on the way. Together, the Scraps N Pieces designers developed an amazing kit called Little Warrior, to help raise funds that will cover some of their costs at this time. This kit is a beautiful children’s hospital themed collab that chronicles the journey that this little warrior is facing. All proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to this little family to help with expenses.

Be sure to add the March speed scraps to your calendar, or better yet, go to the forum calendar and set a reminder.
