All the products in my Digital Candy Store are 25% off from now through Sunday July 8th!!! Hurry over and stock up!

Today's the last day of the Puppy Love sale! 30% off all the series and all the profits from Kathryn Mhire's and my Puppy Love kits and quickpages will go to a charity that helps transport dogs to loving homes!

My latest release is another fabric-textured paper pack! Off The Bolt: Americana! It's at Gotta Pixel right now and will be up at Digital Candy soon! Perfect for those patriotic USA layouts, heritage photos, and so much more!

Don't forget---I'm having my very first CT call and wanted to show you all in case anyone is interested! It will close Tuesday, July 3rd. Please email me at sarah@sarahbdesigns.net with a link to your best gallery, a little about yourself and why you'd like to join my CT!

I'm holding my very first CT Call!!! I just looking for a couple scrappers, but if you are interested please let me know at sarah@sarahbdesigns.net by July 3rd!


I actually did some scrapping today! Via quickpages, but still! I just adore these quickpages with Michelle Pieters Misty Blue kit.

Click on the layouts to see them in the Gotta Pixel Gallery :)

I've got more to show you but it will have to wait until tomorrow!

Well, I told you to go get my Grab Bag #3 last week---did you listen? :) If so, you already have all these fun products I just added to the store individually!

Click on the previews to go to them in my Gotta Pixel Store if you missed out on the grab bag!

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Last day for my grab bag! Hurry over and pick it up for only $2! I'll put the pieces in the store once the grab bag is down and they'll each sell for $2.99 each!

The Puppy Love sale is still going on through the end of the month--buy now at a special price and all the proceeds go to a charity.

If you have been eyeing the June Gotta Pixel Mega kit or Quick Page set, get them before the month is over at a special price too!

I've been working on so many projects lately! I've updated my website with recent products---I knew I'd had a lot of new releases lately but seeing them all listed like that was something else! I've gotten some really exciting scrapping news I can't share just yet. :) I have lots of new products in the works too--I just need more time in the day to finish them up!

Katie tagged me, so here goes! Seven things about me:

1. As of this weekend I am now a minivan driver!
2. I make lists but then forget to follow them.
3. I tend not to finish projects--I have 2 already quilted quilts waiting to be bound, 1 all cut out and partially sewn, another not yet started one calling my name, and yet one more I need to make a trip to the fabric store for.
4. I have been pregnant and/or nursing for the last 3 years 9 months!
5. I love chocolate, preferable dark. A handful of chocolate chips is acceptable.
6. I am addicted to Dr Pepper and fight myself every day not to drink as much as I'd like.
7. I normally won't tag people, but I am going to this time! Oh snarfle! It's your turn!

See you tomorrow with some new releases-- my grab bag reveal!

Did you realize it's 6 months until Christmas? Since most the big sales come at that time of the year and it's so far away, I thought it would be fun to have one now! Nearly all the products in my Gotta Pixel store are 50% off today and tomorrow! So treat yourself! There are several other sales going on now too!

I was tagged by Katie but that will have to wait just a bit--I won't forget though!

Second post of the day. :)

Recently a special member of Gotta Pixel lost her doggie to cancer. Her parents were caring for the doggie's brother and are now sending him down to live with her family. Kathryn and I have extended our Puppy Love sale through Saturday, June 30th and are donating all the proceeds to the organization coordinating the transport to help cover the gas and other expenses in the transport.

I wrote up a tutorial today on how to make your own quickpage in Photoshop! I've posted the tutorial with screenshots over at Gotta Pixel, so head over and take a peek!

What spurred this on is a fun event going on now at Gotta Pixel! Kathryn is offering up a free kit to everyone who agrees to make a quickpage with it to share! Then all the participants will get ALL the quickpages for FREE! You have to join in, check it out right here!
This is challenge week! I host 2 challenges over at Gotta Pixel and they fall on the 18th and 22nd of every month, so I pack all the activity in to one week.
On Monday the latest round of the Gotta Be Quick challenge started up and for this month's prop I made a little kit that coordinates with my Lullaby for Chase kit!

Today kicks off the 2nd round of the ABC Challenge. Head over and pick up the next letters in the series!

And as a special bonus, I'm holding a crop this afternoon! Everyone who attends will recieve this full lower case alpha set! I just love the metal rimmed glass. :)

New products galore! And a sale!

Kathryn and I had a fun crop today over a Gotta Pixel---Gotta Love Puppies! It was so much fun! And as a special bonus we've put all our Puppy Love kits on a 30% off special though Sunday, the 24th.

I've introduced my very first commercial product! Paisley Brushes #1 came about just a few days ago--I wanted some fancy paisley for the kit I have in the works and the paisley just jumped right to the front of the line! It's tough to find delicate and intricate paisley patterns, so I thought others out there might enjoy these too! (And no credit is required! You just can't sell them as is. :) )
I retired Grab Bag #2, released all those goodies individually, and introduced Grab Bag #3!!! #3 is EVEN BIGGER than #2 and again, will only be available for a week, so hurry over! Click on any of the images to go to them in the Gotta Pixel store. Soon I'll get a bit caught up and move them to my Digital Candy store too!

Looking for a great tutorial on how to make scalloped edged for your layouts? Take a peek at this one Di Hickman wrote up for the Everyday Digital Scrapbooking Blog! Her steps are so simple and clear! And I just love the layout she made with my Gummy Grins: Girly kit!

Sunday, June 17, 2007

I've been so busy the last few days I haven't had a chance to update, so they've really piled up!

Digital Candy may go down briefly --they are moving servers, but they'll be back!

I've got lots of new products! My first grab bag expired so I've released all those goodies separately and I have a new grab bag up!

My second Grab Bag is even bigger and better than the first, so hurry over and get it!

My first Grab Bag had inside a mini page kit, Dahlia Bloom, a set of Well Worn Frames, and the Monogram Clips I've packaged up with some other previously released tarninshed silver alpha sets and put in the store! If you missed out on the grab bag you'll want to catch these goodies individually. They are up at Gotta Pixel now and should be at Digital Candy soon! :)



Wednesday, June 13, 2007

New product today! Just the other day I saw some felt ribbons in a paper scrapping catalog and I decided we needed them in the digital world too! I've made 18 different colors in 3 different styles: scalloped, pinked and, of course, ricrak!

Today is the last day to get my first Grab Bag! I already have 2 of the 3 goodies in the bag ready and waiting to activate in the store when I take the Grab Bag down, so if you are curious, hurry over any buy it now! No one piece will be as cheap as the grab bag!

Tomorrow marks the introduction of Grab Bag #2! Those felt ribbons were originally going to be in the grab bag, but they ended up far too large--over 120MB! Too big for 1/3 a a grab bag, but don't fear, it's still jammed packed! :)

I finally did a layout! It has been far too long! I remade an old layout with my remade kit! Here is new new layout with my Little Gingham Dress page kit and Michelle Pieter's Barcodes 1-10.

And here is the sad old version--I was so proud of the kit at the time, but I'd never let something in it's shape out now!
The Gotta Pixel sale was extended through today! So that means you have one more chance to savel 25% on everything (except my grab bag) in the store!

Here comes another huge post!

I'm am super excited to introduce my newest lines! My first set of templates is called Perfectly Pieced Templates #1 and features quilt patterns! I've been planning this for months and finally sat down and created them. You can use the results as a layout background or shrink it down and use it as a perfectly matched element for your layout using any kit!
Here's a close up view using papers from my Sweet Daisies kit!
I've also started a new line of fabric textured paper packs called Off the Bolt! Today I introduced Basic Pastels and Basic Brights.

I just love this layout that Gotta Pixel CT member Suzs made using the templates and the Basic Pastels.
One of the creative team members over at Everyday Digital Scrapbooking, Sue Kristoff, used my Sweet Daisies kit in a great hybrid project! I just love her result! This project was only shown in the Everyday Digital Scrapbooking newsletter, so if you havn't signed up for it yet, do so now! There are exclusive projects shown in it every week.
I forgot to share these layouts that some of the Gotta Pixel Creative Team members made with my May Bouquet Page Kit. I just love them!
Digital Candy is having some server issues but the host is busy at work and hopefully it will be back online really soon! They hope to be able to bring back all the data even! The Shoppe is still online though. :)
