October Happenings at Scraps n Pieces

Depending on where you live, you might be feeling the full effects of autumn – crisp in the air, color in the leaves, bonfires, football, and pumpkin-flavored everything.  October is a great month to experience digital scrapbooking at Scraps N Pieces.  In just 16 days, the annual SNP Retreat will kick off a 2-day event in Salt Lake City that includes laughter, food, laughter, more food, oh…and maybe some scrappin’.  If you couldn’t make it this year, be sure to plan on coming next year…we’d LOVE to see you!  And don’t worry about feeling left out, we always take care of those who couldn’t make it…just wait & see.

First up is our wonderfully beautiful store collab kit called Autumn Comfort.  Aren’t these colors UH-mazing?!

I’m so excited to share these new templates with you. I took some of my very favorite layouts and converted them to templates to share with you!

This classic style of templates features layout with prominent focal points with just a hint of fun on the top to balance everything out – like a cherry on the top of a sundae. You’ll be scrapping in next to no time with these fun templates based off of some of my most favorite layouts in this style. 

Included are the tiff files as well as psd and page files and png layers for use in many programs. 

These templates are for personal use, commercial use, and are ct friendly.

SNP September Happenings

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!

Sneak Peek and Win!

Just wanted to stop in and show you all what I’ve been working on. I’m sure once you see it you will totally understand why it took so long since most of the pieces were created by me. (Plus, I had a lot of checking to do on it to make sure I could use the things that I did.)

So, without further adieu, I give you the sneak peek for Who’s Your Doctor?

Complete with a full (huge!) kit, glitters, acrylics, flairs, and journal cards, this is the perfect collection for scrapping all kinds of layouts (especially of your favorite mad man in a box!).

Want to win this whole collection? Just leave a comment here on this blog post and I’ll be back Thursday morning to announce the winner!

Happy scrapping and God bless! – Amanda
