November 1st Color Plays!

See yesterday's post for the SALE (50% off), Grab Bag (Build Your Own!) and Freebie (Two!) details!

The 1st of the month means new color play kits. Both are just $1.00 per pack through the 7th. I have a huge collection for my BNP! The theme was Family, and I decided to do Family History, since I have been trying to get some of mine done (my family is quite difficult... in many ways.. ;) )!

Family History BNP at SNP - elements | alpha | papers | splat clusters | journal cards | templates | wordart

$1.00 each pack through Nov 7. On the 8th, the alpha/elements/papers will be combined into a full kit and there will be a bundle with all packs as well.

Beautiful Day. The Lovely Colors this month are very pretty teals and golds. I had a really hard time coming up with a theme, but one of our church hymns kept running through my head. The chorus says "Beautiful Day of peace and rest, Bright be thy dawn from east to west, Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, Beautiful, bright, millennial day." While the song is about the Second Coming, the kit certainly isn't. But I wanted the beauty of the world that we live in to be in the kit. Just 2 packs this month: elements and papers. Each just $1.00 until the 7th.

Check out my facebook page to see layouts using all 4 kits this weekend. These posts are long enough! Sale ends Sunday night, Build Your Own Grab Bag ends Thursday. Have a fantastic DSD!

Happy DSD! Sales + Freebies + Prizes!

Good gracious, can you believe we made it to DSD?!?! The party has started! I guess I should start with my game/chat I am hosting... today (Friday) at 1pm EST (10pst / 11mst / 12cst). It will be a fun game and will have coupon prizes. This is in the SNP chat room, so be there! There are also several other chats and weekend challenges at SNP, so go play and have fun and earn schtuffs! ;)

If you are going to start off, you may as well start with the good stuff! All of my shops are 50% off this weekend. Sale ends Sunday night. { With Love Studio | Scraps N Pieces | My Memories }

Build Your Own Grab Bag - Available at both Scraps N Pieces and With Love Studio. Purchase this deal and send me your list of the 10 products you want from my shop and I will send you the links. Bundles/combos excluded. Please read product description for full details. This can be a savings of over $40!

I have 2 new freebies on my Facebook page, hops for both WLS & SNP, so lots to gather for each!

Ok, I got the sales, grab bag and freebies out of the way, I guess it's time for New Releases! I have 2 brand new kits in all of my shops this weekend! First up is a sweet little kit called Sweet Nightingale. I love the music in Disney movies, so I wanted to name it after one of my favorite songs in the movie. Sweet Nightingale is perfect for meeting your favorite princess at the Disney parks, or dress up/ Halloween at home! Available at Scraps N Pieces | With Love Studio | My Memories.

And I made a full kit out of the WLS hop kit! The sampler pieces are all in the full kit, so when you buy it, you don't have to download the freebie! However, if you did the challenge to earn the alpha during Witching Week or if you download the sampler, there is an extra coupon inside for the full kit! Shhh! ;)

A Witchy Tale is available at With Love Studio | Scraps N Pieces | My Memories

I have 2 more new kits/collections releasing tomorrow on the 1st, for BNP & LC... so I will be back with more! Watch my Facebook on Saturday for some special RAKs and Flash sales. Sales end Sunday night but the Build Your Own Grab Bag is available until Thursday.

Have fun this weekend and don't forget to scrap a page or two!

Planning Ahead for Digital Scrapbook Day

I've posted these tips for planning ahead for DSD and NSD but figured it would be a good time to repost them, since DSD is this weekend and all. ;)

How to have a less hectic DSD this weekend!

  • Pre-shop - At many stores, if you log in and put some items in your shopping cart, even if you do not buy it then, it will remain in your cart until you either buy it or remove it manually. You may wish to test this at your favorite shops, so you can be ready with your cart full during the busy time!
  • Make lists - In the past, I have made lists on paper and on a spread sheet of the kits I wanted to buy and links to them. Then during the sale I would choose which items to get and buy them.
  • Snag bonuses - Lots of designers will have flash sales with extra percentages off or even freebies. Sign up for the newsletters and facebook pages of the designers you are interested in!
  • Cash in - Make sure your Paypal is loaded and ready to go!
  • Budget - Don't go overboard... too much!
  • Enjoy DSD - Stores/designers will have extra challenges or games, make sure you are having fun!
  • Plan - Have a plan, a strategy, a schedule of the things you want to do over the weekend!
  • Have FUN!

I have lots of new stuff, plus old stuff ;) My plans include:

  • 2 awesome new kits at all shops, plus on Nov 1st, new BNP and Lovely Colors kits (whew!)
  • Build Your Own Grab Bag! - 10 products of your choice for only $10!
  • 50% off sales at all shops
  • Freebies on my Facebook page, be sure to Like my page!
  • At SNP, there will be a TON of forum challenges and live events, including speed scraps and other games. Psst there are prizes!
  • Flash sales and RAKs on my Facebook page.

To make sure you are getting Facebook Feeds from the designers you love, when you are at my FB page, click on the "Liked" drop down box and check "Get Notifications". That will help you see the info and flash sales on your feed wall.

October by FranB Designs

October is one of the most fun months of the year. Excitement begins to build as the holiday season begins, plus the fun of costumes and Trick or Treating! October is my newest monthly kit, and it centers on some of the fun things we do in October... carving pumpkins and decorating our lawns with Indian corn and corn husks! As always, October coordinates with the rest of the monthly kits and my Everyday Collection. It is also 30% off this weekend!

October is available at With Love Studio | Scraps N Pieces | My Memories

Isn't it darling? I just had to add in the ghosts too, we decorate with a big ghost blow up each year! And they were just too darned cute! Check out the layouts using October!

Hope your week is fantastic! I will be back next weekend with lots of new releases plus all the DSD goodness! Have fun!

Featured Designer 50% off Sale!

Lots to share this week! I am the Featured Designer this week at SNP, so my whole shop is 50% off until October 16th. I also have a set of challenges on the forum where you can earn a coupon to my shop, the amount depends on how many activities you do! You can earn up to $5 for completing the challenges, plus there is a price match challenge. Spend money in my shop and I will price match a coupon back to you... spend $5, get a coupon for $5, plus any amount you earned for the extra $5! Great deal! But it also ends October 16th!

I also have a new release this weekend, September. Yes, I know it's October! ;) September to me always meant going back to school. My son started school August 6th this year and I can't wrap my head around that... to me school starts the Wednesday after Labor Day, it's when I started every year from Kindergarten to Senior year in High School!

That's all for this week! I'm busy getting ready for DSD, which is coming in just 3 short weeks! It's the best digi-scrapping weekend ever!
