*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 freebies...like 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:

From Anita:
From Teresa:
And, a few from DanaJ...
(including a new desktop background using the SNP Desktop Challenge directions for September)
You might have noticed some extra papers in the layouts above that aren't in the mini kit--you will be able to add those to your stash for FREE if you stop back by the AHS blog tomorrow!

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.
