Have you checked into our Anniversary Celebration yet?
Can you believe that SNP opened our doors one year ago? This year has flown by and I, for one, have enjoyed every moment of it! We have had such an awesome year of growth and we have been so very blessed to welcome all of you into our SNP family! You really are the most amazing group of people and you make our forums and galleries so much more fun! We will be starting out our second year with a month long celebration
designed just for you! There will be giveaways, challenges, games, fb hops, blog hops and so much more! Oh and did I mention a little thing like a store wide 50% off sale that's going on right now?! FIFTY! Wow! You know that includes all of the store collabs and CU Grab Bags too! We will also be introducing some fun new challenges in our forums this month and a new way to track your challenge points! We can't wait for you to see what we have in store for you! You're going to love it!
There will be something new each week so be sure to check into the forum
throughout the month!
Paula from Keystone Scraps is hosting a fun Explore This
challenge where you can learn a fun new technique and we all love to learn those, right? So stop in and learn how to create some fun multi-colored text and earn a coupon to her store!
Our Scrap It To Win It challenge is in it's fourth week and the layouts are so awesome! Congratulations to Linda for winning Week 3 with this amazing layout using Simply Blue by Wendy Tunison Designs!
This week's challenge is called Stack Attack and Heidi has given everyone a great list of pieces to include on their layouts and I gotta tell you that I am loving the results! Here are just a few of the layouts but you really do need to check ou the SITWI gallery
We've got a collab for you this month that is going to blow you away! So many of you have been requesting this style of kit that I can't wait to show you just how awesome it turned out to be! I will tell you that the designers have been giddy for this release because it is so cool! So without further adieu, here is Steam Punk! Now go get it! With the anniversary sale, it's got an even lower price tag right along with all of the other collabs! Remember that these collabs only get marked down during a store wide sale which doesn't happen very often so go grab all of those awesome collabs you've been waiting for!
We've also put together a fun CU Grab Bag for you this month. Do you remember when you used to play with paper and create fun things? Well, this month, our grab bag is all about paper piecing!
This month's Featured Designer is Busy Crafting Mommy Designs
and I absolutely love her style. The details in her pieces are just phenomenal and I know you're going to want to pick up some of her kits (or all of her kits if you're like me!) with the awesome 50% off special she is having during her term as our featured designer!
Here's a peek at what she's got in her store during this hot 50% off sale! Don't forget to head to the forum
to check out all of the awesome ways you can earn those coupons to her store!
The first week of the month is our time to treat you all to a little something special in the way of our Bits N' Pieces kits. You can mix and match them to your heart's delight. Best of all they are all only $1.00 each! But the deal is you have to grab them fast because after the week is over, they'll disappear, be bundled into full size kits or simply marked up to full price! So grab while the grabbing is good and have fun with these fabulous furry friend kits!
You have to see this! We've come together to create another awesome and very meaningful charity collab. October is Breast Cancer month and the Scraps N Pieces designers have put together a collab called For Every Woman benefiting Breast Cancer research. All proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
This kit is HUGE! It includes 57 papers, 90 elements, 2 templates (psd, tif, png, & page), a set of gloss styles, and 2 full alphas. So please support breast cancer research by purchasing this kit. This is a cause so near and dear to so many of us and so many of us have been affected by this that it's worth every single penny and then some to pick this collab up and donate to such an important cause.
Use the ad provided by Memories by Digital Design to inspire you to create your layout.
Use the provided font link or free alpha from one of our designers in your layout.
This Challenge runs from the 15th to the 15th. Check the thread for a complete list of due dates! Make a mini kit, template, alpha, quick page, etc. with this month's color palette and theme:
