Change is Good....

Share
Well - what do you think? Do you like the new look? I'm still undecided, but I thought it was time.. Let me know what you think {and I apologize for the ugliness while I futz to get it just right...}

Now - I hope you have a drink and a snack and a comfy chair, because this is going to be a loooong post... The whole point of the "new me" is to coincide with some exciting news I have for you, and some changes to how I do things... I've been holding out on you for about a month with this, and so I'm completely overjoyed to announce: I am now a proud member of the design team at Digital Candy! :) The site has a new owner, new designers, and a whole new look! So to celebrate, they're having a Grand Re-Opening, and YOU are invited! Click the poster to be taken there. {Did you see my name on that list? Yay!}

Now, because I love you all SO much, and because you're all just SO sweet, I'm offering you a special extra discount on top of the already discounted sale prices. Enter the code SMblogFAN at checkout to receive an extra 10% off your order! You can only use it once, so stock up while the offer lasts {through the 7th}.

"What will I buy?" you may be asking yourself... Well, I would like to introduce my newest release, Alphabet Remix. In celebration of this next phase of my designing "career" I thought I'd remake my first ever design. Those of you who have been with me from the beginning - Caryn, Shell, Inge, Jonni, and many others - may see a few similarities.. but hopefully not too many! ;) I've updated and cohesive-ied the color palette, but kept the key features of the kit - circles, letters, stripes, etc - the same...

That was then:

This is NOW:MUCH better, eh? ;)

And check out these FANTASTIC layouts by my creative team...
{run on over to their blogs via their pics on the left to leave them some love}
I think this is their best work, yet!

Now - the biggest change I am making in this new phase is that I will no longer be offering all of my kits for free. And this is the first one you will have to purchase - don't forget, 40% off with the blog fan coupon! - however, I am offering an add-on freebie. But before I get to that, let me give you the link to my store - HERE - where you can check out the new kit as well as any others you may have missed.

Now... Here is your freebie...

Be sure to check back over the next few days for more info about the store, and an exciting opportunity to get a stunning freebie from me!

And here I was thinking the first version was a blast! Wow, you keep getting better.

My first reaction was, NO!! NO!!, I love the first kit. But you are right, change is good. We all learn and grow and change. So, it makes sense that you made something wonderful even better. Thank you as always.

Congratulations on your move to Digital Candy. I love that site and when I noticed that they were looking for new designers and you weren't selling anywhere, I wondering if you were thinking about selling there. I think it will be a great move for you and I love the new kit. I've looking at the forum a couple of times and now hopefully I'll be more involved in the gallery and forum. Good Luck with the new change.

Well, good for you, Amber!
Congrats on joining DC, I hope they do you good.
We'll sure miss your freebie kits, though... :(
At least we'll have the addons... :)

I purchased through digital candy previously, and had a little trouble, some links weren't sent to me...it was cleared up in the end but made me wary, hopefully the new owners do better!! (they contacted me regarding the problem after they took over which I think is terrific customer service!) I couldn't resist visiting DC again though to purchase your kit, beautiful! And thanks for the freebie add on! :)

Rose said...

I also think everyone is mis-reading your post, you said you will no longer be posting ALL your kits as feebies, meaning there will still be some freebie kits, no??
