Holiday Sale! Save up to 40% off!

It's that time of year! With less than a week to go before Christmas (can you believe it?! It really did go by so fast this year), I'm feeling in the Christmas spirit!

From Sunday 12/20 until Sunday 12/27 at midnight, my entire store (not including Dec. Surf's Up and Grab Bags) is 30% off. And as an extra merry little bonus, if your order total is $5 or more, you'll automatically receive an extra 10% off your order. You don't need a coupon code, savings are already set up for you. That means all you have to do is go into the shop, pick out your favorite items, add to your cart, and proceed to check out! AND...you don't have to wait until Sunday to save, because I've already set up the sale in the store! So head on in!

I probably won't be back with anything NEW until after the New Year. I'm working on a few new things but pretty much taking a holiday to be with my family until the holidays are over. I may not even be back with another blog post until after the holidays are over. So if I don't show up until after all the New Year excitement has died down...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I also have a beautiful new release for you. In 2010 I will be bringing you monthly PU grab bags...my first released this weekend at Scrapable and even I have to say...it's gorgeous!

The best part is that these grab bags will be completely revealed! I don't buy a grab bag unless there are no surprises...I'm a picky designer and scrapper and sometimes there are just too many surprises in what you're getting. I don't believe in wasting my hard-earned money! Therefore here are all the items you will be getting this fantastic bag:

The close-ups are resized down slightly to save space but you can see the full-sized version of all the previews under the detailed images in the shop. This grab bag will only be $4 until January 12th and will be seperated and put into the shop on the 15th, when the February PU grab bag will be revealed. (And it will be beautiful, too!)

Go here to grab it, and check out all the other Scrapable designers' new releases while you're there! They have some gorgeous items all for 25% off until midnight tonight!

Speaking of Scrapable...they kicked off their 12 Days of Christmas special event on Friday...today is Day 3, check out the forums to see what all fun is going on today...it may be challenges, a speed scrap, a giveaway...you just don't know until you visit! (You must register for the forum to participate!)

Also if you like to see inspiration from any of my CT members, you should check out either my CT Blog or the Scrapable Galleries. My CT members and the Scrapable Hula Girls have created some BEAUTIFUL pages with some of my products...they make me so proud!

Here's a layout I made with some of the products from my Jan. PU grab bag:

(Please note that the stitches are NOT included in my grab bag, those are from Mira Designs.)

The grab bag colors were the exact colors of my wedding so I ran with that and loved the result! The photo action ran on the photos is one that will be released by InspiredbyDominic Designs very soon, keep checking back at Scrapable, Scrappity-Doo-Dah, or Inspiration-Lane to find out when!

Speaking of Tiffany, I have to leave you with a little bit of a plug. She has come out with this brilliant new action for designers - but it would also be invaluable to scrappers! Ever bought a kit or CU item and weren't sure about the quality? Or question something of your own that you've made? Wanted to check it BEFORE it went through the embarrassment of a failed quality check at your store? Now you can and I highly recommend it!

Her CU Quality Check action is only $5 and is an amazing investment in both your scrapping and designing. It checks for size on a 12x12 canvas, gamut (color when printed) issues, strays and jagged edges, trims your element to save space, blurriness at 100% and checks your element at print size. It will also check papers for these same things. I can tell you that I've had it for about a week and a half, and I've used it hundreds of times now, on different elements, and it's helped me improve so much on quality, especially with gamut. I didn't know how to check this before, and this action has made it 100 times easier to put out quality product. It takes about a minute to run the all-in-one action, and it allows you to stop in between to make any corrections and pick up where you left off. Trust me, it's amazing! You can find that here, here, or here! Also, Tiffany has a freebie up at her shop at Scrappity-Doo-Dah, find that here!

Sorry for the long blog entry...things seem to build up if you don't blog for a while lol! I think that's all for today...have a great weekend!


Time for a yummy blog train!

Woot woot! It's time for another blog train! (I know, I'm cheesy lol...)

The theme for this month's "Blog Train Blog" train (say that ten times fast!) is "Holiday Sugar Cookies. The color swatch was just so yummy I couldn't resist making my portion and furthering it into a full kit!

This is what you'll be getting once you've visited all the blogs:

And here's a better look at my portion:

I also have a full kit, 2 alphas, a flair pack, and glitter styles to match but first let's get to the freebie!

You can grab this freebie right here.

You should have come from RebeccaPSP's blog...your next stop will be By Becca's blog.

If you get lost, you can always head back to the Blog Train Blog to get back on track.

You can check out my full kit below. It is also available in a bundle with the alphas, the flair, and the glitter styles for more savings!

Also, it's time for Scrapable's Surf's Up again! I have one pack available for Surf's Up. You can check out the Surf's Up category in the store here. Everything is $1 for just a few days so make sure to check it out!


Buy My Store, New Releases, Black Friday Sales!

So....how was everyone's Thanksgiving? Did you gorge yourself with food? I know I did. I was super-stuffed. Thanksgiving in my family is the BEST meal of the year, no joke. Turkey, stuffing, homemade chicken and noodles (the best part, I could deal without all the rest)...I almost didn't fit out the door on the way home. Isaac stuffed himself too - mostly with pumpkin pie! He's a big fan of pumpkin pie. I'm a cherry pie person myself lol.

And how was your Black Friday? What time did you wake up? Did you hit the stores? Any good deals? My parents and Isaac and I skipped the stores and went about an hour away instead - we hit a Target and Walmart and a couple of clothing stores - I had a little bit of money and decided to buy me some new clothes, which I was in such desperate need of. I bought some really comfy jeans, a new sweater, a blouse and an "I love Vampires" hoodie lol. My mom bought me a pair of earrings and a necklace that says "Bite Me" - I looked like a 17-year-old Edward obsessed fan in my New Moon t-shirt the whole time!

This weekend I have some spectacular Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals going on for you.

First, my entire store is 50% off, including CU and New Releases. Here's what New Releases I have for you this weekend:

All these are available in my store here. If you like all the pieces, be sure to check out the bundle (shown above, last image) for a super special deal on all the pieces and save money! (Psst...it's 50% off until Monday too so you save MEGA BUCKS!)

In addition to that, I currently have a limited-time Buy My Store offer going on. You can get ALL my CU/PU items for one very low price.

All you have to do is add the Buy My Store product to you cart, check out, and download the .txt file with information. You don't have to do anything right away. Your unique coupon code will be sent to your email address that you provided at check-out within 24-48 hours (please be patient as it is a holiday weekend). If you don't get an email, the .txt file includes information on how to contact me to get your coupon code.

All my products are S4H/S4O friendly so if you own a S4H business this is a great way to add to your stash!

Your coupon code will be good until 12/31/09 (may be extended at my discretion) and will be valid on any new product released until expiration! It's a major win situtation. I won't do anything like this again soon, so be sure to stock up while you can!

Currently I'm starting to work on New Year's stuff and I have a great surprise kit coming sometime in December or January - it's a collab but I can't tell you with who or what it will be. You won't be disappointed though! I'm also working on some CU Overlays as we speak - I plan to release two packs sometime in December. Not too sure when because I've barely started on them but you'll love them!

Enjoy your holiday weekend - eat plenty of leftovers, have lots of fun with your families, and hope you get some great deals on gifts from your Christmas lists!


Tidal Wave Weekend!

Hello everyone! It's Tidal Wave Weekend on the Island!

Unfortunately, I don't have any new goodies to show you this weekend. I've been crazy busy working on some new stuff for Christmas, and I have some fantastic things lined up before the end of the year - you're going to be thrilled! But you can always go check out the shop and you can find some great brand-new goodies - and they're all 25% off for the weekend! (Image is linked.)

Like I said, I've been crazy busy woking on Christmas stuff here. Not only in digi-scrapping but in real life as well. We started Christmas a little early here in our household, as we put the tree up the other day (I believe Tuesday). All of my beautiful villages are up, our stockings are hung, all the lights are strung...and frankly, I've never seen our house so lit up! It's beautiful. I'd show you the pictures I took the first night but they're not hooked up to my laptop. Maybe I will get some pictures tonight and edit the post with them.

I'm so excited - New Moon opened today! Me and Hubby are going tomorrow at 2PM. Our tickets are already purchased and we're ready to go. I'm hoping no one ruins it for me till then lol. Hopefully I'll come back with a picture at least so I can scrap it.

That's all for me today...remember to go check out all the designers goodies at Scrapable!
