This Week's Freebie and My Latest Product

I wanted to remind you all about "Crazy Prices" Thursday at Scrapbird. Every Thursday, you can find a ton of items marked 50% off! This markdown often includes CU products, so make a note on your calendar to check out the Scrapbird Shop every Thursday.

This week's freebie is a Quick Page made by my CT member, Kay. She used my latest kit, Sweet Cream, for this lovely page. Thank you, Kay, for sharing your talent with all of us! Please do not hotlink or share this download link - send your friends here to download.

Happy scrapping and have a great week.

Retirement Sale - Save 60%

There is a brand-new category in the SAS store for retiring items. You can save 60% on these products, before they are gone for good. What a great opportunity to stock up and save!

Dozens of items have been added, with more to come. But they will only be available for a short time, so check out the RETIRING category now. Hurry, hurry! :)

Drawing Winners, New Store, and This Week's Freebie

Lots of stuff going on this week. First and foremost, I'm so pleased to announce I have signed on with This is a unique site where some members are paper scrappers and others are hybrid, and the digital part of the store is brand new. I'm excited about the opportunites there, and introducing the members to the wonderful world of digi-scrapping. Feel free to check my store out, but I'm still in the process of uploading products so come back and check often.
The DTS Blog Train is ended so the All Together freebie in the post below this one is no longer available. If you missed it but still want it, you can get it cheap in the SAS Bargain Bin (and soon in my other stores as well). I even included a FREE Quick Page in the kit. Here's what it looks like, and a page I put together with this QP:
The new Challenges for May are up-and-running, so make sure you check them out for inspiration, and get free posting bonuses! This is the Posting Bonus for Scrapbird's Quote Challenge. It's a Quick Page that coordinates with Merry Sunshine.

Don't miss the Clutter It Challenge at Stone Accents Studio. You get a free "basic page" to work with - download it then ALTER it some how to make it your own. Once it's posted to the Clutter It gallery, you will get this posting bonus, Mother's Day:

There were 11 comments on my post regarding my kit give-away, so that means TWO full-size kits will be handed out. I put the names in a box and the random winners are.... Sharpli, who chose Carmela, and angmag55, who chose Musical Memories. Congratulations, ladies!! I have sent you the download links via email.

I had fun with this kit give-away drawing, so keep checking back because I'm going to do another one soon. :)

Last but certainly not least, this week's freebie is brought to you courtesy of my CT gal, Kay. She made a gorgeous Quick Page to share using my One Spring Morning kit. Please take a moment to stop by Kay's blog and say thank you - these things take time to make and it's always nice to leave some love. Please don't share the download link and don't hotlink. Click on the preview to download and have fun!

Here is a layout Kay made using this QP of her cute little granddaughter:

Have a great week. :)

Win a FREE Digital Kit AND a New Blog Train!

Two big items to mention this week. First, the Extreme SAS Makeover Contest has begun. There will be freebies and prizes given out along the way, but the Grand Prize is an entire year's worth of (personal use) scrapbooking items! I've never heard of such a fantastic giveaway, and it's not too late to enter, but you have to do it soon - by Thursday, May 8. Here's the scoop:

ROUND 1: Palettes/Color Swatch
The fun & games are starting at Stone Accents Studio. The whole month of May is dedicated to finding a new Look & Feel to our fabulous store, forum & gallery. We are inviting you to help us. This week we are kicking it off with sign-ups for those of you interested in helping design the header, footer & buttons for our website. (All submissions will be anonymous - you'll be assigned a number to submit your designs.) You can find the sign-up list and more info HERE.


Our Design Team has also come up with a list of palettes to determine the colors for our site. We need everyone to come vote and choose the most important part of our new look. You can vote HERE.

Round 2 begins on Friday, May 8th! If you've signed up in Round 1, you will be given FREE Commercial Use Products to design the sites Header, Footer, & Sidebar Buttons. These are yours to keep even if you don't win. So sign up for some FREE goodies & a chance to win a FREE year's worth of Personal Use Products (valued at over $200)!

Okay, the second contest I want to tell you about is my own personal give-away. I thought this would be more exciting and different from my usual weekly freebie. I've decided to have a random drawing next Wednesday and give away some of my full-size kits.

Here's how it will work:

Visit any of my stores at Stone Accents Studio, Scrapbird or Wescrap and choose your favorite kit. Come back here to this week's blog post and leave a comment telling me your choice, and why you chose that kit. If you don't have a blog profile yourself where I can look up your email, make sure you send an email to me at so I can contact you if you win. But you MUST leave a comment here, not just send me an email.

Please enter only once but make sure to tell your friends, because the more people who enter, the more kits I'll give away. For every 5 people who leave comments, I'll give away one more kit. (So we'll start with one kit, then if we have a total of 10 comments (from different people) I'll increase it to 2 kit freebies, 15 comments = 3 kits, etc.) All comments/entries must be posted by midnight on Tuesday, May 12. I'll announce the winners in my post next Wednesday.

Lastly... here's exciting news about the Digi Town Square Blog Train:

Digi Town Square opened its doors on the 1st May 2009 as a place where designers from all sites and scrappers of all styles could come together to share their love of scrap, discuss new trends and advertise their latest and greatest - be it a kit or a layout. In the spirit of sharing, a bunch of members from many different sites have come together to bring you the "All Together" Blog Train for your scrapping enjoyment. Make sure to hit all the blogs listed below to collect all the pieces of this lovely kit.

Note: Everyone is on different time zones so if a part is not already up then please try again later. The kick-off is Friday, May 8 but I'm posting my part early because I'm on Pacific time which is behind nearly everyone else.

Here is my part of this mega:

All Together Papers

All Together Elements

Don't forget to leave some love for all the generous designers who contributed to this kit. Here are the links to the other participants:
