We Studio designers are ready to host our 4th Annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop, but first I want to tell you about more great freebies you can collect. During the month of December, the Studio is giving out a Download-a-Day kit. We called it "Advent Calendar" and the theme is New Year's Celebration. Whichever designer is providing the freebie for the day is also having a Deal-a-Day special. The links are obvious once you get to the freebie - and you can collect some amazing kits at VERY low prices! I'm talking about full-size kits marked up to 70% off - but the specials are only good for one day and each day in December you'll find another great deal! My own Deal-of-the-Day will be on December 10, and I'm letting Toiny chose which kit to mark down. I'll be as surprised as you are! :D
For the Download-a-Day, just head to the DSS Store and click on the Advent Calendar for that particular day. Remember, the freebies are good for ONE day so you need to come back every day in December to collect all the pieces.
Now for the Blog Hop....
DSS is happy to present our Fourth Annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop! We have 17 mini-kits for you, each created around a Christmas carol theme. This is something we look forward to hosting every year, Hope you enjoy it.
Please note that we are a team of international designers, so if you come across a post that isn't "live" yet, just make a note of it and come back. This blog hop freebie will be available from December 5 - 12, so grab it while you can.
I chose "Let It Snow" for my theme this year and here's a preview. Click on the preview or the link right below it to grab your gift. (Please, no sharing or hot-linking - send your friends to my blog to download instead.)

Welcome aboard the Fall Carnival Blog Train! This month we have a wonderful mega kit for you and I have to say, I really enjoyed working with this palette - vibrant and "autumn-y" at the same time. But before I get to the freebies, I quickly want to mention that I have a number of summer (and back-to-school) kits on sale in my DSS store. Some of them will be retiring soon because, well frankly, I'm tired of looking at them, LOL. They'll only be available for a limited time - some are marked down to only $1.00 so check out the savings!
Okay, back to the blog train. You should have arrived here from Shel Belle Scraps.
Here's my part of this mega kit. My part will be available as a freebie for the month of September. It includes 8 papers and 11 elements. I do hope you enjoy it.
Next stop on the train is the very talented Jill DZines. If you lose your place, head back to The Blogtrain Blog for a list of all 100 participating designers.

Along with our Next Designer Contest, we're hosting another Layout Designer contest. If you sign up, each week through September you'll be given a kit with which to create a layout. The object is to use as much of the kit as you can to promote the kit to the best of your ability. Each week the DSS members will vote on the contestants' layouts. Further details will be given out HERE but you must sign up by August 31 if you're interested. Top three winners will be given positions on the Studio Store Creative Team.
Now... you are all in for a treat! Some of The Studio designers have come together to create a "Me Time" blog train to show our appreciation to our customers, and...well, we just wanted to. :) Now you get to enjoy some lovely freebies.
This kit is called "Me Time" and I just love the different interpretations of what that means. To me, my "me time" is grabbing a good book or magazine with a nice cup of tea. To others, it's shopping or enjoying a day at the spa. Whatever you enjoy, I'm sure you'll find some goodies in the kits below that are just right for you.
Here's a layout I made using my portion of this collab:
And here's the preview for my part. Please note, my freebies are for personal use only and I'd really appreciate if you'd send your friends to my blog to download, rather than send them the link.
Darlene Designs <<<<<> you are here
Follow the links below to snag the rest of this mega kit. Please note that this is an international team and we are all in different time zones. If you come across a blog that's not ready, just make a note and come back to it. My portion of this blog train will be available as a freebie for one week, so grab it before it goes into my store. :) Enjoy!

I goofed! I didn't realize when I marked both of my stores 35% off for the entire month of July that my "Buy My Store" coupon was still active at Digital Scrapbooking Studio. It wasn't until I noticed a few sales that I saw it and also noticed that IT was also marked down 35%. I thought about taking it down, but then thought oh, what the heck... I'll leave it up until the end of July. So if you're seeing this, you can snag my ENTIRE store, including commercial use items, for only $13.00. This is a STEAL so hurry up and take advantage of this while you can! Simply click HERE to be directed to where to add this to your cart. After checkout you'll be given a download with a coupon code and instructions on how to download everything in my DSS store.

Happy scrapping, see you next week!
