Happy New Year + New in January

Welcome to 2019!

It's shaping up to be another busy year and I'm already off to a flying start.  I have new products in my store and a lovely free gift coming in my newsletter this weekend.  You ARE signed up for my newsletter, right?  (If not, you'll find the sign up link there on the right hand side.)

So, first I'd like to start with "A Cup Of Kindness".  We sing about that on New Year's Eve so I thought it was a great theme for a mini kit.  This mini kit has ten beautiful papers and twenty-eight elements, so it's slightly larger than a 'mini'.  It has a soft palette of blues and neutrals and it is reminiscent of times spent with family, friends and neighbours.

I'm also excited to announce that my very good friend, Manu, of Manu Scraps and I have put together another beautiful collab called "You Mean The World To Me."  We each created a kit with 10 gorgeous papers and forty elements, using the same palette of pink, magenta and beige. These are perfect kits for Valentine's Day, anniversary, date nights, or any special romantic memories!

We created a special deal too!  Both our kits are 30% off until the end of January PLUS if both are purchased together, you receive a FREE bonus pack of fabulous borders and clusters!  See in store for details.

My Newsletter this week has a beautiful gift created by one of CT girls too!  Don't miss it!!

$2 Tuesday - Fresh 'one day only' specials on Tuesdays.  I have some CU packs and some PU products - each for only $2.  These are great bargain buys!!

February isn't far away and I have more new products almost ready to release - a fabulous new collection and a couple of mini kits.  I'm hoping to have some new Commercial Use products in February too.  

That's about all I have for now.  Stay warm if you're in a cold country and stay cool if you're somewhere hot and humid, like me!  

Enjoy your scrapping!

Instant Replay and Encore...Don't miss it!

Thanksgiving is almost here.  Then it will be followed by Black Friday and a weekend of sales and surprises!

We don't have a special day for Thanksgiving here in Australia - probably because the Pilgrim Fathers didn't come to Australia and didn't befriend the Native North American Indians.  That said, we do however, still find the benefits in gathering together with family and friends to give thanks for all our blessings.  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Celebration!

Black Friday is indeed another thing entirely!  Ask most Aussies and they can't tell you a thing about 'Black Friday' - other than Friday 13th being called a Black Friday.  For our North American friends though, we understand that you like to have a big day out for shopping in order to grab great bargains which must be a wonderful boost for your Christmas shopping!!

To capture the essence of the "Black Friday" Sales, I want to share with you the INSTANT REPLAY.

Did you think we were finished with the awesome Big Deal from DSD?  Well, nooo!  Because it was so well received, we decided to bring it back for Black Friday.  If you missed purchasing during DSD I've got news for you.  You can still buy this fabulous bundle of goodies from a whole bunch of great designers - over $600 worth of product for just $30!!  You'll ooohhh and aaahhh as you open each download to discover oodles of beautiful products to keep you scrapping well into 2019!


For Black Friday weekend, we decided to offer an extra bargain - more gorgeous kits and collections as an ENCORE!  The designers have put together a bundle with 25 full size products, valued at over $130.  YOU PAY ONLY $15.00!!   How can you afford to miss this?  

Check it out now:  or go to my Facebook page.

Buy now before the Black Friday shopping rush.  

Get a start on your Thanksgiving scrapping.  Enjoy your beautiful new products!!  

Have fun!!
