November Happenings at Scraps N Pieces

Can you believe this year is just about over?  November?  Where did January through October go, and are holiday decorations really showing up in the stores already? 

SNP Designer Collab Kit - Our House
The colors are fabulous, the ellies and papers are gorgeous and it's so versatile! Our House is one you're going to want to snap up right away and one that you'll find yourself using over and over again!

 Bits N' Pieces - Coming Home / Thanksgiving
Honoring those special moments hanging out with family, playing board games, cooking the big meal, and then falling asleep while watching the big game...that's what this month's BNP kits are all about.  Be sure to snag up these yummy goodies the first week when each pack is just $1.  After the first week, the designers may combine their products into a full-size kit and all will be at regular price, so don't wait!  Starting in November, the BnP Challenge is now all month long, so be sure to post your layout using these fun pieces and earn some points.

Commerical Use {CU} Grab Bag - Texture It
The November CU grab bag is all about adding a little texture to your papers.  We assembled 18 awesome textures for you...a grab bag you will definitely want to add to your stash of CU goodies.  It will be 35% off the first week!

November Speed Scrap Schedule
Be sure to add the following speed scraps to your calendar so you don't miss out on the great participation prizes.

SNP Anniversary + DSD Weekend Events!

It's our second anniversary at SNP and it's DSD weekend! Can I get a WHOOT?!! We have planned a super fun weekend for you! Our customers and designers are some of the best people in digi and we are so very honored to have each of you actively involved in our community! You have no idea how you've touched our lives and how much we enjoy chatting with you and looking at your layouts. There is something wonderful about SNP. It's the friendships we create. It's the way our stories intertwine with those of the people we've never met in real life. It's people from all over the world uniting in this wonderful way that helps us to capture those small moments in time that make up the stories of our lives. Nowhere else can you find such an awesome group of people who work and create so closely to build such an amazing community for all of us to feel at home in. This weekend we are celebrating each and every one of you be{You}tiful people. Our challenges and chats are centered around getting to know you better. We hope you'll join us this weekend as we strengthen our friendships and our community. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter and of course we've created a Be{You}tiful collection of goodies for you that you won't want to miss. There is a fabulous facebook hop where you can collect 25 be{You}tiful templates and we wouldn't dare celebrate our anniversary or DSD without an awesome store wide sale! There will be 3 live events each day (with the exception of Thursday when there will be only 1) where we can meet in the chat room and get a little crazy (or a lot crazy for some of us...but I'm not naming any names!). There will be prizes awarded at each live event so be sure to be there on time! We'll also have 2 challenges for you each day where you can earn the pieces to a HUGE collab (We're talking 96 Papers, 82 Journal Cards, 190 Ellies and a full alpha!!)! You'll have all weekend to complete the challenges so don't stress about getting them done quickly. Kick back with us and enjoy your weekend! Happy Anniversary SNP and Happy DSD weekend to all of you!

*AHS Speed Scrap* at SNP on 10/1 {12pm/noon CST}

Well, apparently if you just save your blog post as a draft and don't actually click the publish button then it won't automatically post when you set it too... :/  Oh well!  Here are the deets, even if they are kinda last minute...

Join me in the forum and chat room over at SNP for a fun speed scrap on 10/1/13 at 12pm CST (10am PST, 11am MST, 1pm EST).  The flier below is linked to the Speed Scrap forum.
The participation prize for this speed scrap will be the Anchored Hearts Studio new mini kit, Spooky...

*AHS FREEBIE* "The Mick" Mini Now on FB

So, I tried my hand at adding a fan freebie on FB and I think I have it figured out, so head on over to the AHS FB page to snag it for your stash.  Here's the preview for "The Mick" (but, you have to get it on FB, so the image is not linked for you to download here) :

A while back I asked for some feedback on FB about what kind of freebie to offer and after a little delay on my part, finally got a little Disney-inspired mini kit whipped up since it was the most requested choice at the time.  There aren't any "obvious" Disney elements, as you will notice, because I don't want to take any chances to invite Disney's legal team to contact me about infringements, but the colors are very Mickey-ish and should work perfectly for sprucing up some Disney or non-Disney layouts alike.  

Keep your eyes open for this mini to have a coordinating full kit in my stores and for more Disney-inspired items as FB maybe "The Girlfriend" or "The Goof"... ;)  I will be alternating freebie products between minis, templates and clusters/WA packs, so check back every now and then (give or take two weeks for each freebie) to see if there's something new!

Speedy AHS Products on SALE

Do you ever have one of those weeks? You know...the kind where you think you are going to get a lot done?  Or *should* be getting a lot done?  But, you don't.  Too many irons in the fire, schedule changes you have no control over, being under the weather...there are a million reasons why these kind of weeks happen, and I have just felt behind all week.  I have been getting ready for a local craft fair and it is simply taking waaay more time than I thought it would...mainly because I waited until the very last minute.  What can I say?  I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-works-well-under-pressure-procrastinator.  ;)  So, since I have neglected my digi-scrap tasks this week because of the glue and glitter on my fingers, my clothes and in my hair, I thought I'd at least give you guys a chance to get some really quick projects done in case you had a week like mine.  Maybe my little sale will cheer you up and you can get something accomplished from start to finish that will make you feel good this weekend!  Enjoy the products from my SNP store that will help you get things done in a jiffy...templates, quick pages and a card pack.  All for $1 each.  Enjoy!  (Images below are linked to the store.)

Today I have another new mini kit to share.  This one is called Peachy and is a pretty peach, white and gray color combo.  If you were at the AHS SNP Speed Scrap last month, you might have gotten this adorable little kit as your participation prize.  If you weren't, now is the time to snag it for your stash while it's on sale for $1.49 until 9/18.  Let's get a look at the preview and then keep scrolling for some layout inspiration...there's info about the coordinating freebie at the bottom:

September Happenings at Scraps N Pieces

Summer is ending.  School is starting.  Everyone is settling into familiar routines - back packs, lunches, and fall sports like baseball and football.  If you need an escape, or find that with the kids in school you have a little free time available (what's that?), check out what the designers at Scraps N' Pieces have planned for you in September.

It happens eventually.  The big milestone birthdays are celebrated, through humor and gag gifts, and then the number somehow stops increasing.  Let's be 29 or 39 or 49 forever!  For all those "over the hill" birthday celebrations, grab Old As Dirt.  The bright palette will bring the life back into any party layout!

Grab the kit for just $7.99, the quick pages for $5.99, or go big with the bundle for $10.99.

The September Bits N' Pieces focuses on "My Guy" - all things that make us love our little guys (and even the big guys too).  These great colors definitely capture the masculine touch in these awesome products.
  Remember all pieces are just $1 the first week of the month!  After the first week, the designers may combine their products into a full-size kit and all will be at regular price, so don't wait.  Also, the first weekly challenge each month is dedicated to the month's Bits N' Pieces products.  Use them in a layout, post it and link to gallery, and earn some points.  It's a win win!!
With school back in session, back to school kits are a big hit.  Want to grab some great notebook commercial-use elements for your next release?!?  Grab Off the Grid and you'll get a super cool combination of notebook paper, envelopes, sticky notes, and ledger paper.  Don't miss out!  It's on sale the first week of release at 35% off!

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is an annual national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the United States.  It also means lots of stuff will be on sale!  Celebrate Labor Day by kicking your feet up, buying some awesome stuff, and scrappin' away!  The entire store will be 30% off through Monday, September 2.


Be sure to add the following speed scraps to your calendar, and join us in the forum and chat for a lot of fun.
