Speed Scrapping and One More Christmas Freebie!

Our Christmas celebration is in full-swing at Stone Accents Studio and you won't want to miss the progressive sale, along with all the other challenges and special events. I am happy to announce that I'm hosting the next Speed Scrap on Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. (Pacific U.S. time). We were supposed to have our chat room up and running, but it's not quite ready so we'll be doing this in the forum. And because we're doing this in the forum, I'm going to be very loose on the one-hour limit. Basically, you have an entire day to create the layout and get it uploaded. You can read more about it HERE. Those who participate will get my Ooh-La-La mini-kit for free!

I have one more Christmas freebie for you, some pretty word art. Click on the preview to download and enjoy. Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'll see you in the new year, after I get back from Disney World. :)

Annual SAS Christmas Carol Blog Train ~~ Freebies!

It's that time of year again and it hardly seems possible! The Stone Accents Studio Designers have gotten together to present our 3rd Annual Christmas Carol Blog Train. That means sixteen mini-kit freebies for you, each theme based on a Christmas carol. What a great Christmas present! I have seen all the previews and they range from elegant to playful by our team of talented designers. So grab a cup of something hot and comforting - coffee, tea, cocoa, or whatever your pleasure is - and hop aboard this train for some downloading fun.

Please note - the design team comes from all over the world so we are all on different time zones. I'm posting mine a bit early because I'm on Pacific time in the states, behind nearly everyone else. So, if you click on a blog where it's not activated yet, just make a note of it and come back a little later. These links will be active for one week (from December 11).

This year I chose to do a mini-kit based on "Must Be Santa" ~ hope you like it!
