Here we are at hump day again – not quite the weekend, but not the beginning of the week, either. It’s sale day today, just like every week, where you can grab select kits for 50% off – some old, some new!  As a special promotion, some of the store collabs are retiring, so they’re not 50% off … wait for it … wait for it … they’re a whopping 70% off!  You can find out about the kits being retired by clicking on this link. Here’s a little look at a mix of kits at both sale prices — these are really great!



Now, don’t lose the opportunity to grab some great sale items and still get this month’s store collab, Roar, if you spend $7 or more in the shop (in one go). You can only get Part 2 of the collab for free for the next couple of days!



Good luck shopping!  Hope you grab some things on your must-have list to welcome in the month of August – wow, that will be here this weekend!!

Can You Find Them?

Hi everyone – it’s me, Katherine, and I’m back again with another one of our Featured Designer games! This week’s designer is Jenn of Joyful Heart Designs. Seems she has a birthday coming up, so she’s offering a corresponding percentage off everything in her store … sssshhh, we’ll just say it’s a 40% discount and leave it at that, okay?


Okay, fine, so Jenn has mentioned in her sale banner the whole birthday thing – Happy Birthday!!  There are 15 pages of items on sale through August 6 … that’s more than 300 items – 300!  No, that’s not a typo!! Jenn’s store is loaded with goodies for all scrapping styles!

I think Jenn’s feeling a little generous, what with her birthday ‘n’ all. You see, for each Featured Designer game, I usually give away (thanks to the generosity of the designers), a $5 coupon to the designers’ store. Great, right?  Play a game, perhaps scrap a page, and bam!  You get entered into the drawing.  Well, this week I have not one, but TWO coupons to give away!  How’s that for awesome?! Everyone really seems to like the scavenger hunt game, so that’s the one we’ll be playing this week. Below you will see little sneak peeks to nine items from the Joyful Heart Designs store. PM me with your guesses on the kits – don’t post them here on the blog, just PM so nobody else knows your answers – or email me. Next Sunday, August 2 at 5:00 pm (MST) (wwhhhaaat?!  August … already?!), I’ll take all the correct entries and randomly draw TWO winners. Easy, right?

Remember, private message me your answers before Sunday night (look for AussieKat in the forums/message boards – click on my name to send a message) or email me.  Ready?  Good luck … now, go!!

Hi everyone – little late today with the Wonderful Wednesday post … too many long hours at work. Good thing I really enjoy my job! For the past couple of months now (wow, time flies!), I’ve been bringing you our little sneak peeks or snapshots of what’s on sale each week – remember, that’s 50% off today and today only! There’s been personal- and commercial-use kits, full collections, kits, minis, elements, journaling cards … you name it! As I was looking over this week’s selections, I was thinking to myself, “Guuuurl, you’ve got some shopping to do!”. This week you’ll see quite a few of the MScrap designer collaborations are on sale!! Right above each of these kits is a really important piece of information: retiring soon. Grab these while you can because they might be around much longer, and once they’re gone from the store, well, they’re gone! Like I said, I think I’ve got some shopping to do for myself! So here’s today’s sneak at what’s in the store –


Well, I’d better get back to work … but I might do a little shopping first – I so need (not want, you notice, but NEED) To Mom With Love! Later!

Play along with our monthly challenges, you can earn points and win a guest Creative Team spot for a month!

Welcome to the July 2015 Scraplift Challenge by Scrapmemories

For this challenge, you have got to scraplift a layout that I’ve chosen from our gallery. The layout does not have to be an exact copy, just let it inspire you and see what you end up with.

I found this layout that NBK Designs made. I love how the frames are scattered on the page like one would do when looking at a pile of pictures and they get scattered on a table.

Welcome to the July Every Little Bit Challenge by softerimagegrl

For this challenge one of our designers creates a freebie mini kit.
Your challenge is to use every little bit (all papers and elements) in this kit to create your layout.
You may duplicate papers/elements, you may add a title and some journaling, but you cannot add anything else!

Here’s the mini kit that you will be working with this month:

Vesi, from Vesi Design has designed this gorgeous mini kit for us this month.
Check out her store >>>HERE <<< for more awesome products.

Happy Monday, everyone!  Wow, that seems a little counter-intuitive … Happy and Monday in the same sentence?! Well, it seems I finally got you all stumped with the blog challenge – ha!! (you all know I’m poking out my tongue and blowing raspberries at you, right?)  Last week I challenged you to create a layout using five items from MEG Design’s store – well, five plus a bonus of one of Meg’s templates. You can read all about it here.  Did you miss out on the game?  Well, you don’t have the chance for a coupon to spend in her store, but Meg’s featured designer sale is still running for a few days, so there’s still an opportunity to grab some great bargains:



Now, earlier I said that everyone was stumped by the Fab Five challenge, but that’s not quite true. There was one person brave enough to give it a go … so Hannah, congratulations!!  You’ll have a $5 coupon to Meg’s store coming your way.  Will you win next week’s game, too?  I might have to put out an all-points-bulletin to have everyone challenge you in the challenge!

Well, time for me to go. After a weekend of a heat index of over 100 degrees (Fahrenheit), I’m actually going to enjoy sitting in my office today at work – it’s colder than a freezer!!

Wonderful Wednesday … With a Twist

Hi there!  You were expecting a Wonderful Wednesday post today, huh?  Nah. Got something much better – Christmas in July!  Okay, so you still get to shop and grab some awesome bargains – and all at 50% off … but here’s the cool part: Wonderful Wednesday is a sale for just one day; Christmas in July doesn’t end until tomorrow!  There’s eight pages of goodies to choose from – kits, elements, templates, overlays, alphas … eeekk! Now, if I tried to show you all of the kits that the designers have put on sale, well, you’d be scrolling for some time.  So here’s a small sampling -


I know, I know, in the US (where I am) we’re sweltering in the summer heat, so thinking of Christmas can be a little difficult – the cold, drinking hot chocolate by the fire (lots of hot chocolate!!), snowball fights. Of course, in other places around the world, it’s the middle of winter, so you’re thinking Christmas is supposed to be hot, cookouts, heading to the pool or the beach.  I look at it this way – switching things up is good for my creativity. If I’m stuck in a rut, or just want to change things up a bit, I stop scrapping current photos (like my vacation ones), and grab something else, like pictures from last Christmas – or from other year’s past – and get to scrapping. I find changing my focus for a short period of time can be a great way to recharge the creative juices.  Also, now be honest, how many of you started but didn’t finish a December Daily album, or ran out of steam for Project Life during the holidays? Uh-huh, thought so. Why not grab a few things to get that mojo going again to finish your album?

JULY 2015 Typography Challenge by NBK Designs.

Hello Everybody :-) Finding a good theme for typo challenges isn’t that easy, so a big bow for Heather for all her great ideas… Nevertheless here is the Theme for the July Challenge. INITIALS…
In a written or published work, an initial or dropcap is a letter at the beginning of a word, a chapter, or a paragraph that is larger than the rest of the text. The word is derived from the Latin initialis, which means standing at the beginning. An initial often is several lines in height and in older books or manuscripts, sometimes ornately decorated.
Source: From Wikipedia
Initials or Monograms are nothing now very modern or popular. But I can imagine that this old technique can look awesome on Layouts with your favorite poem or lyrics. Or use only ONE big letter and start to decorate the shape with Buttons, Flowers, different Papers….I have again created a Pinterest Board with a lot more ideas and inspiration:
https://www.pinterest.com/nbkdesign/initals/Here are a few examples and inspiration:
