Unpacking ... and Counting ...

Happy Friday - make that SATURDAY - scrappers!  With the server upgrade going on at Scrap Matters this week, we needed to postpone our new release day to sort out a few things on the back end.. BUT I think overall, the switch has been really smooth - the site has hardly been down at all, and it's faster than ever.. And who can't appreciate that?!  :D

This week, my scrapping life is the exact opposite of my real life.. My family is gearing up for a cross-country road trip next week, then 3 days after we get home, we're moving to the other side of the country!  That means I've spent every waking moment packing, cleaning, organizing, and trying to get caught up ahead of time.. is such a thing even possible?  Meanwhile, in digi-land, I'm ready to UN-pack my bundle from last week.. Sit back and relax, 'cause this might take a while.. ;p

Inspired by my dad's favorite chewing gum, these little bitty alphlets are just perfect for mixing and matching.
A great basic alpha that you'll go back to again and again!
Who doesn't need a FABULOUS set of stitched borders?  These hand-stitched borders add depth and realism to your page, and give you a finished look with one simple step.
A fabulously fun way to date your pages, these pre-shadowed safety pins come in 10 colors, with beads for months, days and years 1980-2015, as well as bonus heart, flower and star beads.
Something a little different for me, but a total must have if you want to make the most of your photos.
Tested in PSE6-8 and CS3-4.
Lightly creased kraft papers in a rainbow of colors that is certain to coordinate with almost every kit you own! 
A great set of polka-dotted papers to compliment your girl kits, your boy kits and everything in between kits! 
Who doesn't love a funky striped paper?  They can really be so fun and add so much to a page!
For you paper lovers out there, grab all three and save 25%

And as if that wasn't enough, I've got a BRAND NEW product for you, too!  By popular demand, I bring you...
After I released Monogram It, I had so many people asking if I was going to do a number set... Well, here you go!  Perfect for birthdays, flashcards, P365 or even top ten faves, the possibilities are numberless
And for those of you who missed the letters the first time around, you can snag both sets in a money-saving bundle..

Before I send you off with my CT layouts, I need to announce the winner of Kate's contest!  Can I just say how totally awesome it was to hear all of your stories!  And who knew it was so trendy to be late to weddings?!?!  ;)  I have a story to share, too... The day Kate posted this, I was scheduled to babysit for a friend of mine {at my place} from 8-5 ..  Well speaking of being late, I didn't remember until 11:00!!  "How does this happen?" you may ask.. You see, I live in a completely locked building - no door man, no buzzer, and we're on the 4th floor, so the only way for me to know you're here is if you call.. Stupid me - apparently  I left my phone in the car, and my husband's was on silent.. So much for helping a girl out.. Needless to say, I was very late and VERY embarrassed... Seriously!  {For those of you who are wondering how it all turned out.. She was able to "work from home" that day, and took the babe to the water park... did someone say lemonade?}  Anyway, let's have a winner.... 

Amy shoot me an email for your prize!  You can have your pick of any of today's releases...

Now, check out these great pages from my CT using a little mix of everything... As always, all these new products are 20% off the first two days - Saturday & Sunday this time around... Enjoy your holiday weekend, and I'll see you next week.  Until then... Happy scrapping!  :D
