SNP Anniversary Blog Hop

SNPs anniversary celebration is almost over but we have one last challenge for you. There are two steps to this challenge. The first step is to hop around to each of the participating designers' blogs and collect the pieces of the mini we've created for you. Here's a preview of the mini:

After you've collected all of the pieces (there are 16 so make sure you have 16 pieces) we'd like you to create a layout using ALL of the pieces. You may add pieces that you collected from the facebook hop at the beginning of the month but you must use ALL 16 of the pieces from the blog hop. When you've created your layout you'll need to post it in the correct forum thread and area of the gallery. You have until Oct 31/12 at midnight MST to post a layout so you'd better get cracking because there are some awesome prizes! Here are all of the blogs you'll need to visit to collect the entire mini:

New Release!

Does it feel like you've waited forever for a TNS new release?  It hasn't really been that long, but it seems that way to me!

I can't (refuse to!!) believe it's October already, but to try to put me in the right frame of mind I made a beautiful kit full of the rich colours of Autumn.

I really think it turned out beautifully.  Autumn's Rainbows was inspired by the leaves that have fallen on my lawn, the blue sky, and the last flowers of the year.

There are 15 highly textured papers which are characteristic of True North Scraps.  I promise you will not be disappointed by the detail that is involved in them.  As well, there are 35 elements that are truly beautiful.  The wreath looks like you could actually hang it on your door to welcome Fall to your home.  You will find plenty of other Autumn themed elements as well as many elements that you can use to complete your LOs in places that may need just a little "pop".

The alphabet that is included in this kit is simply beautiful.  It coordinates exactly with one of the papers and has a glossy finish to bring attention to it on your page.  This alpha is a complete alpha of all 26 upper and lower case letter, all numbers 0-9, and many punctuation symbols.

We have happily discovered that Autumn's Rainbows goes very nicely with Antiquities and Curiosities, which is the Scraps N Pieces Free-With-$10-Purchase gift for the first 2 weeks of October.  It is also available in the True North Scraps store.

Autumn's Rainbows is available in the TNS store for $4.99 regular, but due to the SNP Anniversary Progressive Sale, you can snag it for 40% off this week! The North Stars made some little gifts to coordinate with Autumn's Rainbows. Hop on over to their blogs and pick them up!


Pop back in a day or two; I have more TNS news to tell you.  Better still, sign up for the TNS newsletter so you don't miss out on newsletter exclusive freebies and info. .

Happy Fall, Y'all!!!

TNS has some new releases!

Today is October first!!  Already?!!  Well, there's a lot to be excited about with October being here:

First of all -- the beginning of a month means it's Bits N Pieces time at Scraps N Pieces!  This month we went with a very brightly coloured animal theme.  I decided that it was the perfect time for me to make a stickers kit:

I also have coordinating papers available:

And sometimes you want to have card stocks, so happy birthday!  (Even if it isn't your birthday)

The textures in this kit are phenomenal.  I took a lot of care to ensure that every element, every paper will knock your socks off when you examine their detail.  As with every BNP product, each piece is selling for $1 -- but only for the first week of October.  After that, I will bundle them up into a kit and sell them for $5.99 (but they will still be eligible for the SNP anniversary progressive sale price).

My CT worked diligently to show you many ways to use this kit:

There's more to tell you about though!  I have been working very hard the last few weeks to bring you an amazing and unusual kit!  

This exquisite kit is done with the rich colours of Autumn, however, there's a twist -- it's a little bit steampunk, it's a little bit old fashioned, a little bit rustic and a little bit elegant. It's definitely unique and therefore no titile other than Antiquities and Curiosities could describe this kit better. It's a very easy-to-work-with kit and is so versatile. The North Stars had a lot of fun playing with it.

There are 14 papers with such wonderful depth and texture. There are also 28 unique elements - and unique is almost an understatement!  It's on sale in my store now -- Regular price is $4.99, but it is also eligible for the progressive sale.  And here's some even better news....  It is the "Free With $10 Purchase" kit at SNP for the first 2 weeks in October.  So spend $10 on some great kits, and receive this beauty for free!

I didn't forget about the alpha either. The bottle cap base is grungy yet classic, the font is vintage yet trendy. There is a full alpha of upper and lower case letters and the numbers 0-9 and many popular punctuation symbols. Your LOs made with Antiquities and Curiosities will not be complete until you make the page title with this alpha!

It is on sale 50% off the first week in October, 40% off the second week, 30% off the third week, and finally 20% off the last week of the month. So you have plenty of time to pick up this incredible kit all month long at different discounts.

Have a great week and happy scrapping!
