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!!

August is almost over...

This morning I was waiting for my appointment with my chiropractor and two new clients came in during that time.  Both had to fill out their initial consultation forms and so on and BOTH asked what the date is today.  It hit me like a double sledge hammer - 22nd August - the month is well on its way to being over.  I can barely believe it.  It's been another very busy month and it has sped by at an alarming rate.  I do have something to show for it though, so how about we proceed to look at some of the things that are worth mentioning.

Right now, at the Studio, we have a $1 Mini Kit Sale.  Yes!!  This is THE time to stock up because this rarely happens.  

Here are just some of my mini kits - heaps more in  my store


Once again my beautiful friend, Manu, of Manu Scraps and I have teamed up to create two matching  'more-than-a-minis' using the same palette.  We called them "Where Wildflowers Grow" and we think you will love all the wildflowers we've included!  We have 30% off as our introductory special.

This is mine - "Where Wildflowers Grow"

You'll find mine in my store here.

Manu's is here

As with previous matching 'more-than-a-mini's that we've created, we have a special limited time gift for those who purchase BOTH - without using points or coupons.  Just email one of us with your invoice numbers and we will send you our gift, usually within 24 hours.  This time we have a pack of six beautiful page edges.  

SALE - 30% off all my CU Papers and CU Photomasks - be quick!!  ENDS SOON.

I have two Limited Time Bundled Deals - through the end of August - 50% off - BIG BARGAINS!


CT member, Donna, has created this beautiful quick page for you using my latest minikit "Late Afternoon Glow"  (psst...this new minikit is also in the $1 MiniKit Sale this week.)

Click the image or DOWNLOAD here.  

Thank you for checking out my new stuff.  

Until next time,
Happy scrapping!!

New Minikit, New Collection + Gift

Are you feeling the heat?  I hear that many people in the Northern hemisphere are feeling the effects of a hot summer.  I hope you remember to keep hydrated and remember the hat and sunscreen when you go outdoors.  Enjoy the long summer vacation time and give yourself time to relax and refresh.

Here in northern Australia, we have some cooler weather - some days I don't even need a cardigan and we could hardly call it 'Winter', but in the southern states, they've had some good snowfalls and the mid-semester break is a great time to go skiing and have some snow fun.

I've been busy designing...I've just released a brand new collection - "Americana - Go Coastal" and my latest minikit - "Popsicles and Swimsuits".  Both of these are perfect for scrapbooking vacation photos.  

"Popsicles and Swimsuits" has just a few more days on special intro pricing - 30% off - just $2.45.  You'll find it HERE. The colours are fresh and summery and it has 10 pretty 12"x12" papers and 25 beautiful elements.

"Americana - Go Coastal" is my take on the Summer Co-ordinated Collection at TheStudio.  It has a slight American flavour with a distinct beachy theme.  I wanted to capture the 'sea to shining sea' aspect.  This is brand new in store.
You'll find it HERE

There are seven separate packs:  Elements (70 elements), Papers (20 papers), Art Papers (10), Page Accents (5), Textured Solids (10), Eroded Frame Photomasks (6), Wordarts (12).  (See separate pack previews in store.)
Each pack is just $1.00 for two weeks only.  The BUNDLE deal is $7.00.

This past week, I also released some new CU Paper Packs (good for PU too!)
These are currently 30% off. Find them HERE.

Have you checked out my July Start Up Challenge in the Forum at TheStudio?  It's an easy and fun challenge, so if you have a few minutes to spare, why not pick up the free little mini, add a few extras of your own and post your page?  Quick, easy, fun!

I have a little cluster gift for you - this was made by Lisa (creative team member) using the Popsicles and Swimsuits minikit.  (There will be a co-ordinating freebie in my newsletter tomorrow too...have you signed up?)


Enjoy your summer fun!

Where did I leave off?

It seems like just yesterday I did the update post about the GDPR compliance!  That whole 'thing' put my routine right out of kilter and since then I have been trying to bring everything back into line.  LOL

I've released two new MINIKITS this month.  Take a look:

'LOVELY SURPRISE' - Save 30% on this one until June 25.


I've also unpacked the Collab Grab Bag that I did for INSD with my great friend, Manu, of Manu Scraps.  These packs are now available in store HERE.

Reminder:  My Commercial Use products are not only for Designers - they are great for scrappers too.  I often include CU packs in the Studio's $2 Tuesday sales, providing a wonderful way to build your stash and save at the same time. 


These are another fantastic way to SAVE.  My BUNDLED DEALS are in store now and they are less than half price.  This time mine are all Commercial Use - another way to SAVE while you build your stash!!


There are still a few days left for you to do my June Challenge.

If you haven't resubscribed to my newsletter, you will be missing out on my latest FREE GIFT.

Until next time...
Happy scrapping!
