Look for my Bits N Pieces "Hush Little Baby" at SNP

The first half of 2014 is behind, and we are full-swing into summer.  July is a fun and exciting month in the United States as its Independence is celebrated throughout the country on the 4th.  The first of July is also a big day for Canadians, as we celebrate Canada Day.  In honor of these patriotic holidays, the designers at Scraps N Pieces have an awesome monthly collab.
Introducing This is My Country...
This month's CU Grab bag has gone metal, and is 25% off.
This month's Bits N Pieces' colors are so soft and pretty, and the participating designers rocked the color palette with such creative themes.  Remember, each piece is $1 each during the first week.  Grab some and be sure to participate in the monthly BnP challenge for forum points.
Have a couple hours free time?  Who does really?  But in case you do, be sure to jot down the July speed scrap dates.  Join in to complete a layout and earn a participation prize.

Super Saturday Sale and 50% off everything else at SNP

Summer vacation on Doctor's orders!  I've had a reality check recently.  It's no secret I've been having some health issues lately.  Earlier this month I spent the better part of 2 days in the ER and things got real.  I have had so many blood tests since then, and there's more in my future because they don't know what's wrong yet.  My Dr told me that it's time to stop working and to reduce my stress and activity for a couple months.

Since I won't be putting out anything new over the summer, I thought I'd give you a gift before I leave.  I hope you like it:

The coupon will work on everything in my store except Super Saturday Sale products today.

Spring Up for $2 Tuesday

$2.00 Tuesday deal at Go Digital Scrapbooking is Spring up

It's been a long, hard Winter this year and I know we are all sick and tired of snow and cold weather.  I just had to make a kit suitable for those photos of the first green shoots peeking through the holes in the snow.  The bright yellow, orange and green color palette makes this such a cheerful kit. It's perfect for St Patrick's Day celebrations - look at that cute little shamrock smiling away in the preview. But this kit is suitable for any LO that needs a dose of sweetness.  I have an adorable lion and lamb, a happy little caterpillar and a robin ready to welcome Spring, as well as flowers, leaves, and an assortment of useful elements to make your pages perfect.  I made 24 papers and 56 elements as well as an alpha of Uppercase, Lowercase, Numbers and Punctuation in two different color ways.

Spring up!  $2.00

Check out these layouts the True North Stars made using Spring Up!

May Two Four and Super Saturday

It's the long weekend in May here in Canada.  A quick history lesson before we get to the sale details…  This is known as the Victoria Day long weekend, intended to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday, May 24th.  She was the queen when Canada became a country rather than a colony of Britain.  Originally the holiday was celebrated on May 24th only, but eventually it was changed to the 3rd weekend of May, which is usually close to the 24th.

Now a little trivia…  in Canada, we use the slang term "two four" when we are talking about a case of beer (24 bottles in a case).  We also don't really give a hoot about Queen Victoria anymore because she died in 1901 and nobody from that time is alive anymore.  This weekend has become more known as the first weekend of summer.  Memo to Old Man Winter -- time to go!

Since the May long weekend was originally May 24th, and since it is the first weekend of summer, there is a lot of beer consumed.  So some smarty-pants came up with the idea of calling it May Two-Four.  That became one of the nicknames of this holiday.

That leads me to the sale - finally!

iNSD Weekend!

It's started everybody!  Even though it's Thursday, a lot of stores and designers decided to start the weekend early and so…

Happy {inter}National Scrapbook Day Extra-Long Weekend!!

I was really strapped for time prior to this weekend thanks to my recovery from my winter ailments and a visit from my daughter who lives in Vancouver and we haven't seen for nearly a year, so I had to be realistic and choose which activities I will be taking part in, which quite frankly is pretty limited.  However, health and family come first, so here's where you will find True North Scraps over the weekend:

GoDigital Scrapbooking's "Love You Mum" Blog/Facebook Hop

This is my part

Flash Sales at GoDigital Scrapbooking and Scraps N Pieces, starting May 2nd until May 4th

Hosting the Friday Night {i}NSD Kickoff Chat at GoDigital Scrapbooking at 8 pm Central time (9 pm Eastern; 7 pm Mountain; 6 pm Pacific; 2 am London, England; Saturday at 11 am Melbourne, Australia).  We'll be meeting in the Neat Chat room on Facebook.  You can get there either by going to the Facebook page and clicking the tab or from the tab at the GDS forum.

Pin and Win!  Pin your favourite TNS products to my Pinterest page here between now and May 4th.  Each pin you make will give you one entry into a draw for a $10 coupon to the TNS store of your choice!  Ready, set….?  Pin!

Sorry Pin and Win contest is cancelled because I can't get the settings on my Pinterest board right to allow others to pin to the page.  I'm going to be thinking of some other way for me to give away $10 to somebody this weekend though!

New Releases

I've also added a lot of new kits to my stores in the last month or so.  Check them out -- they're all on sale too!

Midnight Madness Sale!

I'm getting excited about NSD coming up so quickly.  I started thinking why wait?!  So I am having a pre-NSD Midnight Madness Sale.

Hang on though -- since I'm the boss I get to change my mind randomly.  That's when I started thinking that's 24 hours away still...  let's start the madness now!  So I've set my stores on sale already!  

GDS Daily Download April 27th

Hi it's Dawna from True North Scraps and today it's my turn to offer the Daily Download! April's Mixology is very bright and cheerful and I tell you I really need that -- looking out my window right now the lawn across the street is white with snow. Again. I'm not sure we will get spring this year; I think we're going to go straight to summer! That is why I chose to use my parts of Spring Sentiments to make your Daily Download:

All those pieces are still only $1.20 each, so you might want to pick them up soon before the Mixology price ends!

Here are a couple of LOs made by my wonderful CT, using my packs for Spring Sentiment

And finally, here is your Daily Download:
