And now your giftie.. A little coordinating freebie.. Enjoy!  And don't forget to say "thank you" as you visit the other stops in the "neighborhood."  :D

Topping it Off..

As a designer, you spend countless hours, selecting, tweaking, photographing, scanning, extracting - getting up close and personal with your kits.  And I'm not going to lie - while I may absolutely LOVE the finished product, and may or may not leave the preview open on my computer to greet me the next day - once I've completed a kit, I kind of never want to see it again.. I need a break.  We need some time apart.  It's not you, it's me.  Maybe that makes me a bad designer, maybe that means.. well, I don't know what it means.  The point is, I rarely scrap with my own kits.  This past week, though, I spent some time with my long lost loves and REALLY enjoyed it!  Just what the doctor ordered for me, and now you can reap the benefits, too!  Introducing... To Top it Off - calendar toppers for the time-conscious gift-giver.

No matter how much we're in denial, no matter how crisp and apple-cider-y the air is, no matter that my lawn has mountains of leaves to be jumped in, the holiday gift-giving season is quickly approaching, and a long-standing favorite for grandparents and other family members is calendars!  These 12 toppers will make creating the perfect gift a breeze, without having to spend weeks and weeks planning and preparing.  Just plop your favorite photos in, save and you're set!  As always, these are 20% off thru Sunday, and you can get a kit from me for FREE when you spend $10 or more at ScrapMatters.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Scrapping!  :)

50% off and FREE Stuff!

One of my favorite new promotions at ScrapMatters is the Featured Designer.. Every two weeks, a new designer is in the spotlight and with that comes a FREE kit when you spend $10 in the store, a chat, blog post, newsletter feature, well.. you get the idea.. ;)  Well, now it's my turn, and I couldn't be more excited!  :)  First up, though, I have one of my favorite kits on sale as part of the Manic Monday sale.. Today ONLY you can grab First of May for 50% off!

Then a free kit.. Whenever you spend $10 in a single order between now and the end of the month, you'll get this beauty for FREE!

And I just have to show you this gorgrous layout just submitted from SM CT, Carol.. (I also have some absolute beauties from my own CT, but will save those for when I officially release the kit.)

And finally.. A chat!

I'd love to spend some time with you tonight!  We'll be having lots of fun, and there will be many prizes to be had.. You don't want to miss it!  :D

Have a great week, and Happy Scrapping!  :)

Something NEW for YOU!

Well my goodness!  It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies.. and especially these days!  Wasn't I just basking in the warm summer sun while my little one frolicked in the sprinklers?  But here we are at fall - the first frost hit last night - and although this is my favorite season, I'm sad to see the days getting shorter and the nights getting colder.  Ah well, I guess that's why we scrap and take thousands of photos every year (or month, lol) so we have at least some small way to remember these fleeting moments.. *sigh*

Anyhow - I've really got no segue here - I've managed to get buried in life and work (and my other work) and failed to send a newsletter earlier this week when I released my October MAK items.  I was totally in love with this swatch, though, and really like how everything turned out..

I had so much fun with this alpha, I decided to do a more neutral version as well, and when you purchase both, you get 25% off - pretty sweet, right?  ;)

Now - in case you missed the news, ScrapMatters welcomed 4 new designers earlier this week - yay! - and as part of the celebration there was a 30% off sale.. I, of course, totally failed at newslettering before now, and I feel badly that you may have missed out on the sale, so here's a coupon to get 30% off any of my Oct MAK items.
Code: thirty4uafter
Expires: Oct. 7

Have a great weekend, and Happy Scrapping!  :)
