When Life Gives You Lemons – New Release

I hope that everyone had a great DSD weekend. I know that it was full of fun for me. This week I’m here with my latest release – When Life Gives You Lemons.

Life is full of little surprises – some of them sweet, some of them sour. The trick to it is choosing to see the bright side in everything, so when life gives you lemons, make the best of it! This fun collection is perfect for scrapping those moments, but is versatile enough for everyday layouts and lemonade stand layouts. Check out these previews and don’t forget to check for your coupon after the previews!



The kit and add on pieces are all 40% this weekend. Use the coupon code: mls-lifelemons10 to get the already discounted bundle for just $10 now through Monday night!

Take $2.00 Tuesday™ at Gotta Pixel

Hello! I hope you’re not too snowed in on this Take $2 Tuesday™. Here in Arkansas our snow lingered for a few days, but the 60° F weather here knocked it out quite fast and has me dreaming of warmer days. So I decided to do a Summer Take $2 Tuesday™.

If you’re dreaming of warmer weather like I am, make sure to check out the Summer Fun digital scrapbooking page kit on sale for just $2.00. Plus, all add on packs for Summer Fun are on sale for just $1 and the Summer Fun bundle is marked down to $4.50. And, for you template lovers, Busy Body Templates Vol 3 is on sale this week for just $2.00, too.

You can also find Summer Fun and Busy Body Templates Vol 3 on sale in my Scraps N Pieces store, too.

Smarty Pants

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a busy few weeks here with the lead up to school starting, school actually starting, and dealing with that slight slump that happens about a week later when getting up to go to school is neither new or exciting. I have to say, it’s been pretty interesting with both of the boys heading off to school this year. I haven’t quite gotten used to the quiet yet and I still have that big “yay they’re coming home!” smile in the pick up line. You know the one, right? Anyone taking bets on how long that lasts? Lol!

So, to capture all those great moments this year, I created Smarty Pants. It’s a huge collection filled with fun elements in bright, fun colors to scrap those memories with the same sort of happy feel that those first day smiles brought on. Smarty Pants is on sale for 30% off for one week, so check out these previews and grab them before the sale ends!

And congratulations to Sara Tomlinson who said “The thing I love most about back to school time is shopping for school supplies! ybkids always groan about having to think about school….but, to me, the best things are sharp, unused crayons in a box and a brand new package of markers or pens!!!” Be on the lookout for an email from me to get this collection for free!

Karen who said, “I love the colors of your new kit. I see that you have a little trailer in the sneak peek. That was my favorite part of camping as a child. We had 4 kids and 2 adults packed into a little pop up trailer…was a cozy family! I loved all the new friends we made at the campground, all those warm summer days swimming, evenings catching fireflies, roasting mallows and drinking cocoa!”

Congratulations Karen! I’ll be sending you an email to claim your prize in a little while.
