Boxing Day Sale

Did everybody have a wonderful Christmas?  Despite remembering the anniversary of the death of somebody I loved very much, Christmas was good this year.  My husband gave me the best gift ever -- the gift of time with him.  He gave me a package of coupons he made for about 30 dates throughout next year!  Santa couldn't top that one!    

But now I have a gift for you:

I remember when Boxing Day was about giving to people who had less than you.  As a child we would choose an old toy or clothes, wrap it and take it to church where it was collected to be given to a needy family.  Today Boxing Day has become a day for steep discounts and door crasher sales.

I love the old fashioned charitable meaning behind the holiday, but I don't have any old toys or clothes to give to families in need.  I do however have the ability to offer a steep discount in my store.  So...

Save 60% off my entire store today only!  Happy Boxing Day!

Big Coupon Savings and Big Collabs!

The Mayan calendar begins over again on December 21. Some people say it's the end of the world; some say that this is just like us flipping the calendar to a new year. All I know for sure is that on December 20th, I'm going to party like there's no to-Maya! 

 Use this code to get the end of the world discount of 70% off until we are all safe and sound in the next b'ak'tun. 


 Code expires at 11:59 pm Dec 22 

Have you picked up the SNP December store collab yet?  This is one of my favourite ones I have participated in!  Look at the LO I made using it:

The bells are an extraction from a photo, not part of the kit, but see how the kit complements them so nicely?

Here's an elegant holiday kit that was inspired by winter formal dances! Sparkly, elegant, some snow, and plenty of glitter will really dress up those pages for you!

Containing an assortment of music, holiday, and winter papers and elements, you will have the perfect accompaniment for Christmas themed dances, Snow Balls, Holiday concerts, and family portraits. Included are 17 papers, a full upper and lowercase alpha, and 49 elements. This pretty kit is available at Scraps-N-Pieces for 30% off this week!

New Release!

Have you ever seen a mini kit and wished that it was a full-sized kit? Today you can get that wish come true.

This Time of Year started out as my contribution to a blog hop.  I really liked the colours and wanted to expand it.  I added 36 new elements and 15 new papers.

In addition to the absolutely gorgeous elements and beautiful papers, there is a golden alpha that adds the finishing touch to this elegant kit.  And just in case you missed the blog hop, I've included the mini that started it all, for free.

Here are some inspiring LOs from the North Stars:

Aren't they wonderful?

 If you are looking for an elegant Christmas kit this year, this one definitely fits the bill!

Today is a Super Sunday because the Super Saturday sale is still happening at Scraps N Pieces due to site issues we had yesterday.  To try to make up for the website being down, we are offering an extension this weekend on Super Saturday.  That's good news for you because I have 3 kits available this weekend for at least 60% off!

Holly Days is only $2.00 - that's 60% off!

And I have more good news!  December 11 is my next release date.  Here's a peek at what is coming

It's come to this

I apologize for any inconvenience to real people, but I have been receiving spam comments at a rate of about 2 per hour, which adds up to a LOT in a day.  I finally decided to do something I really didn't want to do -- implement the word verification box.  At least it's not Captcha - I can never get that one on the first try!  I am sorry about this, but I just can't waste time finding and deleting spam comments anymore.  I hope you understand.

Today's "national celebration day" is National Roof Over Your Head Day.  That is something I do when I start feeling sorry for myself for whatever reason... I remind myself that I am so lucky.  I do have a warm roof over my head, I have clothes and shoes, I have food and I can eat daily, I live in a country of peace, and I do not have a serious illness.  When I think about the people who do not have what I do, it somehow makes my problems seem so small.

Chill Out - a new release from TNS

Wow!  Can you believe it's the first of December already?!  I sure can't.  But it is and that means it is Bits N Pieces time!  For the first week of December my new kit Chill Out is broken down into parts that are only $1 each!

This is not your normal winter kit.  Just look at those soft colours.  It makes me feel content and cozy no matter how frightful the weather may be outside.   And look at all those sweet elements!  In fact there are 44 unique elements in this kit.  

Carrying on the content and cozy wintry theme, there are 14 gorgeous papers to help your LOs show how you embrace winter.

On top of that, you can get a coordinating alpha.  Samplers remind me of sitting in front of the wood cook stove at Grandma's while she taught me to cross stitch.  Another content and cozy memory.  This alpha is only uppercase letters, but includes the numbers 0-9 and the common punctuation.

This kit is perfect for all your LOs of the kids bundled up, building snowmen or catching snowflakes on their tongues.  But it isn't limiting if you don't live in a snowy climate.  One of the North Stars lives in Texas where there isn't much snow in the winter.  But they do get beautiful sunsets.  The colours in this kit worked fantastically for her LO.

Here are the LOs that the North Stars made with Chill Out. I know you won't need any help being inspired by the kit, but I'm so proud of them that I have to show them off! It's even been used to make Facebook Timeline pictures with.


 Remember, each part of this kit is available for only $1 at Scraps N Pieces, but only until Dec 7. On December 8, I will bundle it all up and add a couple more parts that will also be available separately for you if you pick up the kit during BNP week.
