It's the second anniversary at SNP and it's DSD weekend! Can I get a WHOOT?!! They have planned a super fun weekend for you! The customers and designers are some of the best people in digi and we are so very excited to have each of you actively involved in our community! You have no idea how you've touched our lives and how much we enjoy chatting with you and looking at your layouts. There is something wonderful about SNP. It's the friendships we create. It's the way our stories intertwine with those of the people we've never met in real life. It's people from all over the world uniting in this wonderful way that helps us to capture those small moments in time that make up the stories of our lives. Nowhere else can you find such an awesome group of people who work and create so closely to build such an amazing community for all of us to feel at home in. This weekend we are celebrating each and every one of you be{You}tiful people. The challenges and chats are centered around getting to know you better. We hope you'll join us this weekend as we strengthen our friendships and our community. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter and of course they've created a Be{You}tiful collection of goodies for you that you won't want to miss. There is a fabulous facebook hop where you can collect 25 be{You}tiful templates and they wouldn't dare celebrate their anniversary or DSD without an awesome store wide sale! There will be 3 live events each day (with the exception of Thursday when there will be only 1) where we can meet in the chat room and get a little crazy (or a lot crazy for some of us...but I'm not naming any names!). There will be prizes awarded at each live event so be sure to be there on time! We'll also have 2 challenges for you each day where you can earn the pieces to a HUGE collab (We're talking 96 Papers, 82 Journal Cards, 190 Ellies and a full alpha!!)! You'll have all weekend to complete the challenges so don't stress about getting them done quickly. Kick back with us and enjoy your weekend! Happy Anniversary SNP and Happy DSD weekend to all of you!

Frosted Brights

From the 15th August, the Scraps N Pieces blog train Frosted Brights was available. I downloaded most of the parts, but I created a layout with the part by Amy's Designs. I found the colour scheme a little bit tricky for a boy, but feel that I made it work.

This kit will be available in the Scraps N Pieces store soon.

Here's the layout I made.

For most of us, childhood days are seen as a carefree and joyous time. It's time to run, play, and hang out with friend - to grow up and find our place in the world. Unfortunately, not every child is given the same opportunities. Pray for Haley is collaboration kit made by some of the finest artists in the digital scrap-booking community to help a young girl in need. Haley was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and is missing the current school year because of her treatments. Her strong will and determination has allowed her to keep up with her school work and she looks forward to the day she can return to the classroom and her friends. The profits from Pray for Haley will be given to this courageous girl and her family to help with mounting medical costs. When the time comes to scrap all the joyous moments in the young person in your life this kit will offer you a multitude of options for beautiful scrap book pages as well as help a young girl in need.

We have split this kit up as separate pieces if you feel like you can only donate a little bit, as a Big Bundle, and for the greatest savings, we also have a Mega Bundle option to get everything.  Please click on slideshow below to go to the store and help this little girl in need.

Remember You

Hi all, 

I'm a little bit late coming to tell you that there is a new mini kit in the Scraps N' Pieces by Amy's Designs. It's called Remember You, and it's on sale at the moment, half price!! Here's a preview of it: (it's linked)

Doesn't it look pretty? I played with it too, and here is the page I made. I'm hoping to make more with this, as it is so versatile, and I didn't really use as much as I would have liked on my page. 

There are lots of beautiful pages in Amy's Gallery at Scraps N' Pieces, and you will be able to see some of these if you go look at the kit in the shop.

Ladybug by Amy's Designs

I've been working on some of the older kits that Amy has made, and I thought I'd start with Ladybug. 
Here's a preview of the kit, and you can click the preview to be taken to the store:

I really love ladybugs, and had some really cute pics, so I went ahead and made two pages with this kit. I love how the colours and shades work together, and all the different little ladybug elements. 

Here's the layouts that I made with this kit. 

Hopefully I've tempted you to have a look in the shop. It's a really lovely kit to work with.

When We Sow

This week I had some fun playing around and doing some scrapping. I worked with a kit from Amy's Designs, "When We Sow." This is a really pretty kit, in shades of green, teal, yellow, cream and brown, perfect for sweet and elegant gardening photos. I scrapped a LO with a picture of my son buried up to his waist in my in-laws garden last summer in Europe (2012). I used a template done by Amy too, from the Facebook hop for iNSD. Here is the layout I made:

I really loved the kit, but when I got toward the end of my layout, I realized I was missing an alpha to complete the page. I could have used one from another designer, but thought I could make my own for the kit. So that's what I did. Amy has asked me to share this with you, so if you have When We Sow, you can pick this up to go along with it. If you don't have When We Sow, you can pick it up here at Scraps N' Pieces: (click on preview to go to the store)
After you pick up the kit, come back and get the alpha. I'm sure both Amy and myself would love to see what you have made with the kit and alpha. Link up your gallery here if you do make something, or come over and join us at Scraps N' Pieces. There are plenty of challenges and lots of fun things to do. 
Ok, here is the preview and link for the When We Sow alpha add-on:

It's a New Day

Amy's Designs from Scraps N' Pieces is releasing a new kit today, called It's a New Day. I got to play with it already, and it is so nice. The colours are really bright and fresh, and versatile enough to be used for boy, girl, or family pages. Here's a preview.

Here is the page I created with it.

And we all know everyone loves freebies. I've created a page border freebie using It's a New Day.
I hope that you will all like it.

Hello Everyone,

It's finally over! The Designer Mentoring course, that is. I'm sure that we can all say we have learned a lot. I know I did. If you want to grab my part, and check out the parts from my team, and all the other teams, you will have to go to Scraps N' Pieces to get them. This will require you to create an account, but I'm sure that it will be worth the little bit of time it takes to do that. There are some really beautiful mega kits available. Here's a preview of my part:
Here is the link to get my part, and after you've picked up mine, you can go through the rest of the gallery, and get the parts from the other teams.
