iNSD Sales and Deals!


happy iNSD to you all!!

There’s a lot I want to tell you about, but since I guess you’re ready to do your shopping I’ll limit myself to the most important things for today, and save the chatting for another time, lol.

The Studio is having a 50 % off sale (not a big surprise, lol) – but: I’m topping this with a “Bundlemania”: All my bundles are 70 % off for NSD (sorry, collabs are excluded)! Believe me, there are some incredible deals in my store now, lol.

New in my PU store is an awesome collab with Danielle (aka The Urban Fairy) and for today, it is 50 % off instead of the 30 % mentioned in the ad ;D

Danielle and I are featured designers at the Studio until May 15th, check out our challenge in the forum, there’s also a code so you can pick up this beautiful add-on for free (and if you post a layout with it you can win even more goodies!):

If you love to win free kits (and who doesn’t, lol), take a look at the “Pin it to Win it” thread in the Studio forum – I know we are all itching to pass out some coupons to those who post their pinterest wishlist!! 😀

For those of you who are interested in CU products (and you don’t have to be a designer to use these,lol) – Eva (aka eqrAveziur Designs) and I have teamed up again to bring you an awesome grabbag

plus there are some new CU products in my store that are 50 % off today.

There’s also a new freebie up on my FB Fanpage!

Those of you who are subscribed to my newsletter, check your inboxes, there’s a new one with a freebie in there :D.

Have a wonderful iNSD weekend!

Lots of things – and a freebie

Lots of things – and a freebie

Today there are lots of things I want to tell you about – hope I won’t forget anything!

Have you heard about theStudio’s Digital Day Out? Here’s what Manda has to say about it:

“We’ve been talking about this event for months. We’ve shared some sneak peeks on our Facebook Page and Blog and we’ve been teasing with hints about what’s to come. But what is Digital Day Out?

The cost of your $25 ticket gets you admission for the full day, a goodie bag valued at over $150, filled with gifts from our Design Team (including discounts, photo frames, glow in the dark goodies, treats, magnets, toys and more!). You’ll also receive a USB drive filled with digital supplies including 4 templates, 2 mini kits, 1 mega collab and a CU grab bag!

Lunch is included, as well as snacks and beverages. You’ll be given the opportunity to test the Silhouette Cameo, complete a hybrid Make & Take (which includes chocolate). Of course there is time for scrapping and games. We’ll be playing Bingo, hosting a live speed scrap and we’re holding a fun, casual, Q&A session with Nibbles Skribbles and Scrappy Cocoa!

We (Nibbles and Scrappy) will be available all day to help answer your questions, show you the ropes and host the entire day. We’ve got all the goodies for a photobooth, and we’d love to take a silly picture with everyone who comes (or a not silly one, if you’d rather).
Finally, there are HUNDREDS of dollars in door prizes to give away!”

I’m so sad I won’t be able to go and meet you all – but for me it is half a world away… maybe I should talk Toiny into organizing one over here? ;D At least you’ll find some goodies from me if you can go there! 😀

I’m happy to announce a couple of new products in my store – a new collection, a new oldie bundle and a grabbag (no, not the DSD one yet, but there will be one – actually two… lol):

After all the Holiday things I have been creating lately (some of them for Megas and Grabbags that have not been published yet), I needed to do something else, and here is the result: Time to Breathe

In between our daily tasks we all need some time to breathe – even more so in the Holiday Season.

This kit was inspired by all these moments that make us deep breathly and relax, to gain new strength, calm, hope and joy!
Done in soft, luminous yellows, blues and greens just scrapping with “Time to Breathe” will renew your spirit.


Here is a quickpage created with this wonderful kit for you all to enjoy:

But that’s not all that’s new in my store, I also have a new  Oldies but Goldies bundle with a Christmas/Winter theme and a new Retired Freebie Grabbag:

… and last a reminder: Tomorrow will be the last day of my Fall and Halloween Sale! (see post below).

Featured Designer – Sale and Freebie Add-on

Featured Designer – Sale and Freebie Add-on

Hi all – it’s my turn to be Featured Designer at theStudio! And while I’m all excited to see the wonderful pages created in the Featured Designer ChallengeI hope you’re excited about what that means for you:

This new collection is all springy, soft, cute, girly…I had so much fun creating it and can hardly wait to find the time to scrap all those little girl pictures of my daughter. Oh, and my waterlily pictures – some of them made it into the kit, as extracted flowers 😉

While writing this I just realized I haven’t shown you any of my February creations yet… eeek, I’m such and awful blogger!
So here they are:

First there’s my “Baby Bear Collection” – bright and fun colors for all those babies and toddlers that – like mine – don’t “do” pastels, LOL …

My Valentine’s Day kit was very “tweet” this year, here’s “Tweet Love” 😉

Then I did a kit that’s a little bit different from my usual style, “Venice Nights”, but I love how this turned out, with all the lace and velvet that makes you want to touch it.

Last but not least, there are two collabs:

“Winter Woods” a collaboration between Piggyscraps Designs, Aimee Harrison Design Studios and Deli Scraps.

“It’s my Birthday” – a collab between Nibbles Skribbles, eqrAveziur, Snips & Snails, Moon Designs and Deli Scraps

“It’s my Birthday”

Wow, that was a lot – I will do my best, trying to get better at keeping you updated!!

Have a great time (and don’t forget to pick up the blog train freebie in the post below!!)!
