It’s that time again – Quarterly Sale time! It’s amazing how quickly it seems to come around! Everything in the store is 30% off through Monday 25th August, with the exception of the licenses. Now is a great time to treat yourself to something on your wishlist!
I have some new goodies to tell you about! Nicole has been busy working her magic with my Joodle Strips to create two new Joodle Journalers packs that are great fun for pocket and traditional scrappers alike! Slip them into your pocket pages or use them as journal spots, photo mats or decorative elements on your digital pages! I have also been busy doodling and have a sunny scorcher of a beach pack new in the stores this week (the result of some wishful thinking as the weather here in the UK has definitely not been tropical this summer!)! On The Beach is 30% off all weekend, stamps and the doodle/stamp bundle are also available.

So, on to this month’s challenge. When Kate and Nicole (who you will recognise around the digiworld as Ink and Pixels) get together, they make beautiful Project Life and other shaped templates. I made a slight variation on one of their templates, and came up with:
you can download the PSD and TIFF Files here or the PNG Files here.
I know, it’s pretty simple – but you know what? See the magic you can create with it!
from Bethany (aka bjthomas) (I love how she created an out of this world scene!)
from Christa (aka cfile) (I love how she changed up the angle of the template)
Christmas in July is one of my favourite promotions, not only because I have some ex-pat friends now living Down Under who celebrate Christmas in July, but also because Christmas (and December in general) is usually so hectic that making time for scrapping is tricky! I do enjoy catching up on recording Christmas and winter memories in the middle of summer when the pace of life is much slower! All my Christmas and Winter doodles are on sale at 30% off 24th-27th of July, as well as all the Document Your December products which include all theDoodled Pocket Page range of templates! Here’s a selection of the goodies on sale over the weekend:
Today was the last day of term for my kids so summer has officially started for us, at last!

Both the Summer Camp doodles and the coordinating Summer Camp alpha are 50% off all day today – no coupon necessary, just add them to your cart! The sale ends at midnight EST Wednesday 23rd July.
I’m busy making the most of the last few days of school before my kids finish for the summer by working on some top secret projects! Although I don’t have any good goodies to tell you about today, I do have two of my summery favourites in the SOSN half price sale! Both 100 in the Shade and Sunshiney are 50% off all day today – no coupon necessary, just add them to your cart. Sale ends at midnight EST Wednesday 16th July.

Many thanks to everyone who entered, I always love to see the different ways you use the templates popping up in the gallery!
And now, on to this month’s challenge! This month’s template was created by my creative team member Iva and is another fun one! I love the strong geometric design and the potential for using another big photo – I’m looking forward to seeing what you all create with this one!
Earlier this week I shared this photo of a corner of my desk over on Facebook and Instagram and gave everyone a little sneak peak of my new BYOC doodles in progress!
Here are the finished, scanned and extracted Joodle strips, all ready for you to use on your pages and projects! These little painted pieces are fun to tuck in behind photos and elements on your pages, or you can go wild and create your own colourful patterned backgrounds with them! Joodle Strips 2 is part of July’s BYOC collection and is 20% off all weekend!
World Cup fever has arrived at my house, despite the disappointing England results so far! Today’s new releases are there result of my passion for football and are also the last of my Custom Doodle Contest winning packs! There were so many great suggestions from the contest that although I’ve created doodles for all the official winners, I will also be working on lots of the other theme suggestions too so if you entered the contest, you may see your idea being doodled soon!
Football Crazy is on sale at 20% off over the weekend with stamps and doodle/stamp bundles also available in the store!
There’s a decided World Cup flavour to my What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday photos this week! It has been good to get back to some doodling after concentrating on some other projects for the past few weeks. Here’s what’s been on my desk this week:
- Football doodles
- promarkers and pitt pens (as always!)
- World Cup wall chart (my daughter and I are diligently filling in all the scores after every match – keeping my fingers crossed for a better England result on Thursday!)
- England deely boppers and flowery lei thing to (a) show support for our boys and (b) embarrass the male members of my family by doing (a)
The England paraphernalia even made a trip to Old Trafford earlier in the month to watch Soccer Aid: Come on England!
