Hello 2015 and welcome to a new year at Scraps N Pieces!
Let's get right to it. It's a long post, so be sure to scroll ALL the way through it. Enjoy!
The SNP Designers were busy putting together a new store collab kit for you called Rise and Shine. Grab the kit or the bundle (includes the quickpages). Use the collab kit to earn forum challenge points by posting a layout in the Collab Kit Challenge.
The Bits N Pieces color palette this month was so soft and pretty and the theme was Winter, perfect for January.
Remember, each of the product pieces sold are only $1 each the first week, through the 7th. After that, the designers can bundle them up, and they're set at regular price. Use any of these pieces to earn forum challenge points by posting a layout in the BNP Challenge.
Whew...that was a lot, huh? Bet you can't wait to snatch them all up and start on your layouts.
Take a break from the downloading and unzipping of new stuff, and join us for a speed scrap this month.
Be sure to check out a couple new challenges in the forum:
Featured Designer Challenge
Each month, there will be 3 designers featured. Each designer will have her shop on sale for 1 week during the month. Your challenge is to create 1-3 layouts using the 3 featured designers kits. You may use products from all 3 designers on one layout, or you can do up to 3 layouts, one from each designer.
Last year, we hosted a P52 challenge with weekly prompts. This year, your project will only require you to post one layout per month with prompts (and maybe some freebies) from the hosting designer.
Head on over to the Scraps N Pieces blog starting January 1 (and bookmark it too). Set yourself a reminder because you will not want to miss the Pick Up The Pieces (Download A Day). Each piece will be available for 24 hours starting on January 1st through January 31st. On February 1st, the kits that were given away in January will be available for sale if you want to just purchase them. Then, in February, use the pieces you picked up to scrapbook a layout for our Scrap The Pieces challenge in our forum and earn points towards FREE STUFF!
By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.
~ Helen Hunt Jackson
For most of us here in the States and Canada, September usually marks the beginning of cooler weather, the return of school, and making memories with falling leaves, apple cider, and football. Wherever you live, we hope you share those memories with us at Scraps N Pieces.
"S is for School" is our newest store collab, and the designers have outdone themselves...again! The awesome colors, elements, tags, and fun papers will make your school scrapbooks complete. Don't forget if you create a layout using the collab kit, post it to the Collab challenge and earn some forum points! Grab the kit, just the quickpages, or the bundle of both! Image is linked to the kit in the store.
The first of the month means a new set of awesome Bits N Pieces products, and we promise our designers do not disappoint this month. This month's theme is all about learning and knowledge, and the variety in the products is just amazing! Don't forget if you create a layout using any of the September BnP products, post it to the September BnP challenge and earn some forum points!Grab each of these for just $1 during the first week of release (after that they go back to full price). The image is linked to the BnP category in the store.
All you current and future designers definitely need to grab the new September CU grab bag, especially for any fun school-themed kits. Grab Graph It at 30% off!
Hopefully after the school routines are set and between all the activities of September, you can find a few hours to hang out at a Speed Scrap. Check out the schedule below. Be sure to check the forum for the place - could be in the forum chatroom or on our store Fb page.
