A sale, Fun Font Friday and more!


Did you have a good week? Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's going to be a busy one. I'm a course marshal at the Red, White & Boom Half-Marathon in Minneapolis tomorrow. Once that ends, I'm headed to my neighbor's house for a fun-filled Fourth of July celebration. Hopefully the weather is pleasant tomorrow.

In addition to the great BNP sale going on right now (all July BNP products are $1 each), we're also having a storewide summer sale at SNP this weekend.
Here's a look at some of what I've got on sale. You'll find a few other products on sale as well.
The sale only runs through July 5, so don't wait to take advantage of these great deals!

Let's talk about fonts, shall we?

This month's fun fonts are all by Amanda Bottoms. If you've been around digiscrap land for any length of time, you've probably seen or downloaded her fonts. Her Fonts for Peas collection includes over 500 handwritten fonts and her Scrapbook Fonts collection includes dozens of fonts. Today, I've chosen to highlight three of my all-time favorite Fonts for Peas: Pea Bailey, Pea Devon Caps and Pea Missy.

I also mentioned a freebie. I've got a cluster freebie available on my Facebook page. The download includes one cluster with and without drop shadows. Head on over to my Facebook page now to download it. (Look for the "freebie" badge on the left-hand side of the page.)
Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Happy July 1! And to my Canadian friends, fans and readers, Happy Canada Day!

Yes, it's July 1 which means we're into the last half of 2015. Where does the time go? It also means it's a new month and time for a new set of Bits N Pieces products.

I love this month's palette and theme (summer). With the temperature heating up around here these days, I was inspired to create a set of beach-themed products including paper packs, elements pack, card pack and graffiti pack. The products are perfect for your all your beach and pool party photos and projects.

The best part? They're all just $1 each July 1-7!

The paper pack includes 24 papers (17 patterned, seven solid). Patterns include swim shorts, bikinis, starfish, sun, waves, flip flops, floral, weathered wood, surfboards, polka dots, plaid, sunburst, damask, scallops, stripes and more.
If you want more paper, I've got you covered. The coordinating bonus paper pack includes 24 papers (four patterns in each of six colors). Patterns include chevron, polka dots, diagonal stripes and gingham.
The element pack is chock full of items to help you scrap your beach. lake, or vacation photos. It includes 57 unique elements in all. Themed elements include sun, umbrella, jellyfish, seahorse, fish, crab, starfish, sand castle, tanning oil, beach ball, bikini, sunglasses, swim shorts, shells, flip flops, wave border, surfboard, cloud, sand splat, water splat and word strips. General elements include banner, frames, ricrac, ribbons, bows, flowers, leaves, tags, string, twine, buttons and stitches.
Those of you doing pocket page projects will want to pick up the A Day at the Beach card pack. It includes 10 unique card designs in both vertical and horizontal orientations. It also includes cards with bleed for professional printing and a high resolution .pdf file for at-home printing.
Finally, if you like a touch of paint on your projects, there is the graffiti pack. It includes five paint smears/graffiti in .png format. They're shown to scale against a 12x12 background.
When I told my CT about these products, they mentioned they were excited because they had lots of pictures to use for their layouts. I love the layouts they created. Check them out!
Want any or all of these products? Head on over to the store now to pick them up now. They're just $1 each July 1-7!

Fun Font Friday


How was your week? I hope it was filled with fun and sunshine! I've been hard at work planning and designing changes for this website as well as working on some upcoming kits. Stop by on Monday to get a sneak peek at some of the products headed your way next week.

Before we get to this week's fun fonts, do you have any theme suggestions for upcoming months? If you do, drop me a line (shelbellescraps [at] gmail [dot] com) or leave a comment on this post. You may see your suggestions featured in a future month.

Today is the final Friday in June and I've chosen a special mini-theme: the Beatles. They're one of my favorite bands. I love their music and that there's such a wide variety to it (Twist and Shout, Hey Jude, Yesterday, In My Life, Yellow Submarine, etc.). The fonts this week are all Beatles-related and include their band logo and album logo fonts. Please be sure you follow each designer's terms of use included in the download.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!
