Fun Font Friday, DSD weekend and more

TGIF and Happy Halloween!

Are you excited for the weekend? Are you trick-or-treating tonight? I'm excited to be passing out candy because I love all the cute and creative costumes that people wear. My favorite is one I saw  a couple of years ago. A little girl, probably about eight years old, came to the door wearing an old laundry basket around her waist. There were a few random socks, dryer sheets and an empty bottle of laundry detergent in the basket. I asked her how she came up with her costume and she told me that the laundry basket broke so she decided to use it as her costume before they recycled it. Cute!

One of the big events this weekend is Digital Scrapbooking Day which is really more like a weekend since events are already going strong.

If you haven't already done so, you can check out the full calendar of activities taking place at Scraps N Pieces this weekend in this post. There's a storewide sale, challenges, games, and speed scraps taking place starting today and running through Monday. For each challenge you complete, you can earn a portion of the Grateful for You mega collab kit the designers created.

One of the activities that started today was the Grateful for a Jump Start Facebook hop. Many of the SNP designers created free templates for you to collect on their Facebook pages. Here's a look at the template you can collect over on my Facebook page. It's CU/CT/S4H/S4O/PU friendly. The hop is circular, so you can start at one page and follow the arrows in either direction to get to all the pages with template freebies. The hop only lasts through Monday, so be sure to download it before then!
If you've had your eye on any of my products for a while and have been waiting for sale to come along, you're in luck. This weekend only, I'm offering a Build Your Own Grab Bag sale. Purchase the grab bag, then email me with the list of the five individual items you'd like. I'll send you a coupon code within 24 hours. There's no limit to the number of times you can purchase the deal but it will only be around through Monday so you have to act fast.
Finally, be sure check in here on my blog, Facebook page and on Twitter from time to time throughout the weekend. I'll be doing some flash sales and special first come, first served coupon deals. They'll be great and you won't want to miss out on them!

Whew! That's a lot of stuff to tell you about! Let's get to this week's fun font, shall we?

This week's fun font is Retrofitted. It's a handwritten font that includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers, punctuation and special characters. I love the subtle cutouts in the letters; it gives them a glossy feel without the glossy look.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy digital scrapbooking day! Don't forget to stop by for great deals!

Digital Scrapbooking Day starts tomorrow at SNP

Digital Scrapbooking Day (DSD) is almost here! Are you excited? We're so excited about it at Scraps N Pieces that we decided limiting it one day wouldn't cut it. Instead we're celebrating DSD in a big way with a four-day weekend.

We're celebrating the entire weekend by having a HUGE sale in the store--50% off.
We've put together a HUGE collab kit for you. You can earn portions--up to the entire kit--all weekend long. It's called Grateful For You because we're grateful for all our fantastic fans and customers. Here's a look at the entire kit. You can earn each piece by completing challenges throughout the weekend.
The events kick off on Friday. Manda will begin hosting a weekend-long gallery challenge. Fran will be hosting a game. Lahni and Melissa will be hosting challenges and Lori & Heidi will be hosting a speed scrap.
Be sure to head over to Facebook on Friday, too. Many of the SNP designers have created special, limited-time only templates for the Grateful for a Head Start Facebook hop.
Saturday we've got a fun mix of events too. Manda's gallery challenge continues. Loni and I will be hosting challenges and Amanda will be hosting a speed scrap.
The festivities continue Sunday with the gallery challenge, bingo hosted by Nat, challenges hosted by Tammy and Stephanie and a speed scrap hosted by Jenn.
The events wrap up on Monday with a the final day of the sale and the last day to complete Manda's gallery challenge. Kimberly will be joined by some of the other SNP designers for a chat Monday night. Stephanie and Marina will host challenges and Lahni will host the weekend's final speed scrap.
Keep your eyes out on our blogs, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds this weekend too. Some our designers will be doing flash sales or offering up first-come, first-served deals there too. You don't want to miss out!

Fun Font Friday


Phew! It's been a crazy busy week. In addition to all the regular things, I also had to rake leaves this week--that can be quite a workout. This weekend is going to be a busy one. I'm headed to the Minnesota Blogger Conference on Saturday followed by a Halloween party. Then on Sunday we'll be celebrating my Mom's birthday with a trip to one of her favorite restaurants, the Claddagh Irish Pub. Maybe I can sleep in Halloween weekend?

This week's fun font is Vintage Straps. It's a mixed case alpha that includes three weights (light, regular [shown below] and bold). It also includes European characters.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Autumn Splendor

Autumn is my favorite season. I love the crunch of leaves under my feet and the cool, crisp air. One of my favorite things about fall is all the glorious color Mother Nature gives us. The colors this year have been spectacular.

All of these things inspired my newest products, Autumn Splendor. There's a kit, word bits pack and a card pack.

The kit includes 30 papers (23 patterned, seven solid), 51 unique elements and one alpha in seven colors. It includes both themed (acorn, apple, pumpkin, crow, scarecrow, wagon, etc.) and general (ribbons, bows, buttons, frames, tags, journal spots, etc.) elements.
I also created a word bits pack to accompany the kit. It includes 34 unique word bits (plus four alternate English spellings [splendour, colour]).
And for those wanted extra journaling options or cards for their pocket pages, there's also a card pack. It includes 12 3x4 cards.
Want all three? You're in luck! I've put all three products in a bundle which saves you money. (It's like buying the kit and an add-on pack and getting the other free!
Even better? Each product--the bundle too--is 40% off through Thursday, October 30. That's a huge savings over the regular price. Head on over to my store now to take advantage of this great deal.
