Can you believe that January is almost over? If you haven't yet, be sure to head over to the Designer Elements challenge and complete a layout this weekend! You can pick up the special mini kit that coordinates with Rosy Outlook for FREE in my store! To complete the challenge, just download the mini, scrap a layout, upload it to the gallery and post it in the challenge thread! But you have to do it by the end of the month, so hurry!

Today's my final day in the spotlight as the Featured Designer at Digitals! Be sure to pick up these last pieces of Everyday Treasures in my Digitals store! This also means January 19th is the last day that nearly everything in my store will be 35% off, so if you've been waiting to shop, don't wait any longer!

If you aren't familiar with them already, I want to introduce you to my Clip-Its! Set 1 and Set 2. Clip-Its are the handy tool that will let you create page borders, frames and mats in seconds! Scalloped edged papers are great for layering too! Each is sized at just under 12"x12" but you can easily resize them for photo mats. :)

I'm hosting the Designer Elements challenge! It's a super-easy challenge too! I made a special mini kit that coordinates with Rosy Outlook, and you pick it up for FREE in my store! To complete the challenge, just download the mini, scrap a layout, upload it to the gallery and post it in the challenge thread!

And a new month also means a new Quickies challenge! The challenge schedule at Digitals is changing up a bit with the new year, so the format of the Quickies challenge is changing a bit too -- you now will have 3 kits to choose from, and 2 months to get  your quickpages scrapped!

Hurry over and pick up my Snuggle Up kit so you can participate in the Quickies challenge while it's still included in the 35% off sale! 

And be sure to "like" the SarahB Designs page on Facebook! I just noticed the other day that it had topped 300 "likes," and to celebrate I'll be posting a special gift over there very soon, and you won't want to miss it!

I hope you've had fun in these last 15 days, I know I have! I can't keep up with this fast-paced everyday blogging but I do hope to have another new kit ready soon! :) Thanks for the nice comments!

Here's the next-to-last daily download of Everyday Treasures, Day 14! You can pick it up in my Digitals store in just a few minutes!

That teeny-tiny tag? I included because I wanted a little scrap of paper to place on my pictures in P365 layouts to note the date.

A sweet friend treated me to a spa day this past weekend, my first time and it was so nice! Simply Serene would be the perfect kit for scrapping about a spa day! 

Imagine yourself in a peaceful retreat, surrounded by the beauty of nature and special mementos. Breathe the crisp clean air, hear the quiet roar of water in the distance, and feel the light breeze. Simply Serene will help you beautifully scrap memories of a special vacation, a layout remembering family members or even a layout all about yourself!

Be sure to stick around and pick up the final pieces of Everyday Treasures tomorrow! If there's anything in my store you've been eyeing, pick it up now, while it's 35% off! 

Remember to "like" the SarahB Designs page on Facebook and subscribe to my blog so you don't miss future sales, freebies or new releases! :)

It's nearly Day 13! I hope you've been remembering to pick up your daily downloads of Everyday Treasures my Digitals store! :) Today's pieces are all tan and a bit worn (or well-loved, you could say!). They can work well for masculine layouts or shabby layouts! The paper is inspired my engineering graph paper - some of my very favorite notepads!

Today I wanted to feature a different kind of product, my It's Puzzling Frames & Clipping Masks!

There are so many layout possibilities for these puzzle frames! With the look of a favorite well-worn chipboard puzzle and the photos of your choice, you can create unique elements for your layouts and projects! By using the combination of a frame overlay and clipping mask, creating these puzzles is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Includes three 15-piece arrangements, one 9-piece arrangement, one 6-piece arrangement and 4 individual pieces! (Photos shown not included.)

Downloads include layered .psd files for Photoshop as well as .png pairs of files for use in any photo editing software. Instructions for use are also included. Pick up my It's Puzzling Frames & Clipping Masks now while they are 35% off!

It's nearly time for Day 9 of Everyday Treasures! If you haven't picked up Day 8, hop over to my Digitals store and then come right back! :)

For the Day 9 daily download, I've included another one of my favorite papers - a really good general use off-white paper that's got little bit of grunge and a very slight grid pattern, a yellowing leaf and a blank worn paper tag.

Remember, almost everything in my Digitals store is 35% off right now! 

Today I wanted to another favorite kit of mine, Anemone Bloom! What's black, white and red all over? This anemone! I grew anemones for the first time last year and fell in love with them! To me the dramatic colors convey elegance and independence.

See you again tomorrow! :) 

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

And now we're in to week 2 of daily downloads! I hope you enjoy Day 8 of Everyday Treasures! You can pick it up in my Digitals store!

If you missed out on the fun of my Featured Designer chat Monday night, you can still pick up the Everyday Treasures Alpha! This worn and torn tan paper alpha was created especially to coordinate with my Everyday Treasures kit, but will work well with so many kits and layouts!

One of the off-topic things we discussed was how cold most of us were! It had me longing for the arrival of spring, which had me thinking of my Burst of Spring kit

The greens of Everyday Treasures reminded me of Playing in the Mud

Do you have a little boy who loves to get messy? This is the kit for you! Playing in the Mud has fun and fresh colors and lots of things that little boys love: a toy frog, a play shovel, sticks, leaves, stones, dirt and mud! Also great for photos of kids making mud pies or just having fun outdoors!

Take a look at this great layout with Everyday Treasures by one of my creative team members, bunnyfreak! Head over to the Digitals gallery and leave her a comment!

See that alpha? It could be yours for FREE just for attending my Featured Designer chat on Monday, January 10th (tomorrow!) at 9pm ET I'll be hosting a chat in the Digitals chat room!


Today I want to feature another special kit, Count on Me (which can be purchased as a giant kit or in pieces). Numbers play such a role in our lives: dates, birthdays, anniversaries, awards and so much! Mark those special moments in your layouts with the addition of a unique number-themed paper!

A new year is also a great time for making a special keepsake! What could be a more thoughtful gift for someone special in your life than an album detailing 10 things you love about them? The gorgeous 10 Things I Love About You Album is a beautifully designed album of 12"x12" png pages helps take some of the work out of this special gift, so you can focus on choosing the special words and photos. 

If you need a little more room for journaling in your book, the 10 Things... Blanks are so versatile! The blanks were designed to coordinate with the 10 Things I Love About You Album as journaling pages but can also be used as starting points for any layout!

If you are planning to print your layouts, consider picking up the the 10 Things I Love About You Album Covers! It includes the front and back cover and the book spine so you can customize a photo cover bound book!

Here's a peek of what's included in the January 7th download.

I really love this paper too! It was a happy accident - I planned separate a graph paper and dotty page, but thought the combined effect was even better!

The pre-labeled tags are simply to make your P365 album-making easier! I also have included blank labels in the kit. :)

Now available in my store, A Little Bit Shabby! With romantic patterns and colors, worn edges of a well-loved favorite and a flair of days gone by, the A Little Bit Shabby mini kit includes just enough for you to create several layouts to showcase of your treasured memories in a timeless shabby style.

I'm excited to share with you that I'm the featured designer at Digitals right now!  Every day from January 5th through the 19th you can pick up portions of my newest kit, Everyday Treasures, for free!

I created Everyday Treasures with Project 365 in mind! I had such a great experience completing the photo portion of Project 365 last year, but I never got all those photos scrapped! I wanted a cheery kit I could use for the whole album, and I'm really pleased with how this turned out!

I'm hoping to quickly get a 2010 album scrapped and keep up with 2011 layouts in a timely manner - hopefully I can stick with it!

Here's a peek at the pieces you can download in my store today, January 5th.

Just make sure you visit my Digitals store daily! While you are there, why not treat yourself to a few other goodies! Almost everything is 35% off!

Don't want to wait until January 19th to collect the full Everyday Treasures kit? You can purchase the full kit instead!

Mark your calendars now! On Monday, January 10th at 9pm ET I'll be hosting a chat in the Digitals chat room! Everyone who joins me will receive the Everyday Treasures alpha that's not yet loaded in my store!
