Lots of TNS news at GoDigital Scrapbooking

I'm new at GoDigital Scrapbooking and haven't seen Mixology before but I am loving it! You can't beat the price and just look at the beautiful colours! For the next 2 weeks each piece is only $1.20, so mix and match to make the perfect kit for you


In addition to designing I've been busy adding inventory to my shop. Yesterday I added 4 new kits, 2 new alphas and 3 coordinating add-on packs!

Do you get the GoDigital Scrapbooking newsletter? I hope so! There's a coupon for $2 off a purchase of $4.99 or more (that's 40%) from my shop there, plus a freebie word art pack that coordinates with Small World!

Love is Patient

A new release from True North Scraps

Love is Patient

This very pretty kit is full of affection!  There are plenty of hearts, Cupid, a love bug as well as many other beautiful elements, making a total of 50 elements.  The papers consist of 6 plain cardstocks and 18 very pretty patterned papers.  I have included a full alpha with numbers, uppercase, lowercase and some punctuation.

Additionally, for those of us who find time at a premium or might be in a creative slump, I have some quick pages available separately.  Just add photos, maybe an extra few elements and a title made with the alpha from the kit and you are finished super-fast!

The kit and the quick pages are available at all three of my stores -- Scraps N Pieces, GoDigital Scrapbooking and Heritage Scrap.  And you can get them on sale for 30% off until March 10th.

Do you check the TOUs of designers when you download their kits?  Sometimes it's worthwhile… just sayin'…  ;)

This kit is so pretty and easy to work with, but just in case you need a little inspiration, take a look at these fantastic LOs made by the North Stars

Some of the fantastic NorthStars have made you freebies.  Time for a mini blog hop:

Don't forget to check the True North Scraps Facebook page or subscribe to the True North Scraps newsletter.  Sometimes there are little extras available only to these special people!

Scraps N Pieces: Two Amazing Collabs this Month

Even though the calendar says March, it still feels like winter in so many places right now.  When will we ever start to feel some warm spring air?  Around Scraps N Pieces, we have been keeping ourselves warm by designing some amazing products for you, our awesome members and customers.

Are you a fan of the art journaling style of scrapping?  If you are, then you are going to LOVE the store's March collab kit.  It's called Express Yourself, and it is awesome!


Do you know the definition of earworm?  It's defined as, "a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person's mind."  And I think the music-themed Bits N Pieces for March will be running through your mind all month until you snatch them all up.  The pieces are just $1 each the first week, and then will regular price and possibly bundled up into full kits.  And don't forget our Bit N Pieces month-long challenge; snag some great kits at a low price and earn forum points in the process.


Our members mean so very much to us.  The 3-year old son of one our members was just recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer last week. This is something they would have never thought would happen to their family.  It is Stage 4, as this type of cancer is often not symptomatic until that time. He will have to go through some aggressive chemo, then surgery to remove his tumor, then more chemo. There is a 40-50% survival rate, but his doctors are very optimistic. This family has 3 other small children and a new baby on the way. Together, the Scraps N Pieces designers developed an amazing kit called Little Warrior, to help raise funds that will cover some of their costs at this time. This kit is a beautiful children’s hospital themed collab that chronicles the journey that this little warrior is facing. All proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to this little family to help with expenses.


Be sure to add the March speed scraps to your calendar, or better yet, go to the forum calendar and set a reminder.

Have a great day!!
