Make your own Gift Card envelope/holder:
Wow, it is December already and Christmas is only a few weeks away!! It’s that time of year again that most of us are decorating our homes, doing the baking, and going shopping for gifts for our friends and family. Sometimes in lieu of a present, I purchase a gift card. Gift cards are great to give, as they are always the right size, no standing in line and the best, no returns!! I like them as I never know what a teenager may want, or even for little ones, what Santa may have missed on the wish list. What I like to do, (to make the GC more personal), is make my own Gift Card envelope/holder. Continue reading
Congratulations to November’s blog challenge winner Melanie B! Please check your PMs over at The Lilypad for details of how to claim your prize! And now, on to this month’s challenge!
It’s the Silly Season! No matter how or where you are, share with us how you celebrate this time of year.
Way down south here in Australia, it’s hard to relate to scenes of snowmen or snow-draped landscapes. It’s hot. Depending on which part of the country you are living will depend where you celebrate (ie near the coast, at the beach, in the mountains, or in your own backyard). It’s too hot to cook huge meals, and seafood plays a fairly big part of the festivities because it can be cooked and then eaten cold. Not many of us celebrate anything with turkey, but we are pretty big cold ham consumers. Barbeques are also fairly typical (although depending on the weather, sometimes banned because of fire conditions). I know it’s Christmas time when it’s stinking hot, but my husband can’t get into the Christmassy feeling until July – being English, he is used to very cold Christmases. You’d think he’d be used to it after 10 years, but no…
Our Black Friday celebrations are continuing today with some new Cyber Monday Specials! All these Christmas crafting goodies are 50% off today only and you can still save on Friday’s new releases (Jingle All The Way, Bigger on the Inside and Doodled Pocket Journalers) as they are all 30% off today too! Here are today’s Cyber Monday deals:
If you have been celebrating Thanksgiving I hope that you have enjoyed a wonderful day with your nearest and dearest and that you can still do your trousers up after all that turkey and pie! Over here in the UK, Black Friday is a new concept but it’s getting bigger and bigger every year, there seems to be even more deals to be had so I plan on doing a little online Christmas shopping today! But first, I have lots of new releases to tell you about this week and they are all 30% off this weekend as part of our Black Friday and Cyber Monday celebrations!
Along with all the new releases, I also have some special Black Friday deals – grab these products at half price, today only! These goodies will never be discounted further so if you have any of these in your wishlist now would be a good time to treat yourself!
Nicole and I got together again to create some new templates are part of this year’s Document Your December collection at the Lilypad! These versatile Round Ups multi-photo templates are perfect for everyday layouts along with review style pages (maybe weekly or monthly round ups) and for scrapping those events where you end up with so many photos it’s hard to choose! Mix and match them with the other templates in the Doodled Pocket range to create a personalised album that captures those all important memories! These templates are on sale at 20% off through Sunday.
Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day! I have a new doodle pack and two new styles of templates to tell you about today, along with all the DSD fun and sales! Here’s a run down of what’s happening over at The Lilypad (check out the forums for lots of fun and games!):
I have been wanting to make some wizard themed doodles for such a long time now, I really enjoyed putting this magical pack together! Wizardry is new in the store and on sale at 30% off through Monday! Magic!
As soon as I saw this month’s BYOC colours I knew I wanted to create a doodle pack that had been on my to-do list for a while: dinosaurs! Prehistoric is the result and is 30% off through Monday as part of the Digital Scrapbooking Day celebrations!!
Hi Everyone, It’s Nicole and I’m soooo excited to bring you a special challenge this month in honor of DSD! Firstly, I want to say congratulations to last month’s blog challenge winner, JaneAgain! Congratulations Jane, please check your PM’s over at TLP for news on how to claim your prize!
And now, on to the challenge!! Kate and I teamed up again and created new editions or our pocket pages. What?! You say you’ve always wanted to try them but haven’t had a chance? Today is your lucky day! We thought it would be fun to offer this freebie sampler pack so you can test drive them. It includes a full-page template with square corners and one of our brand-new-debuting-today pocket page filler templates with rounded corners. We are really excited about these new filler pages, we think they are perfect for those weeks with less photos, or maybe too many photos that need an overflow page, and they are also great for non-PLs that want to give pocket scrapping a try. Both feature 3×4, 4×6, and 4×4 doodled pocket frames so you can use all your favorite
filler cards and project life supplies.
There’s a new smiley little freebie on my Facebook page at the moment! It’s part of the Lilypad’s Facebook Hop, if you start at TLP’s FB page you can hop around all the designer’s pages to collect all the pieces of this ENORMOUS Autumnal kit, Capturing Fall:
Here’s a closer look at my contribution to the kit:
For a limited time you can pick up my Capturing Fall goodies for FREE on my Facebook page (click the Capturing Fall tab at the top!) The hop finishes on October 27th so hurry! Happy hopping!
It’s time for our annual Halloween Bash over at The Lilypad! There are lots of spooky goings-on over in the forums, with plenty of challenges, games and prizes to be had over the weekend! Along with the 30% off sale on all Halloween goodies, I have a couple of freebies and two new doodle packs for you today! I do so enjoy creating Halloween illustrations, its always such fun to draw some creepy characters! Halloweenies #1 and Halloweenies #2 are both new today and are 30% (yep, 30%!) off all weekend!
