ScrapMatters DSD 35% Off Sale Extended…

I am so humbled by the terrific response we have gotten to our DSD {digital scrapbook day} sale.  We have gotten such a terrific response that our new, dedicated, huge server has been overwhelmed. Thanks so much for visiting ScrapMatters on digital scrapbook day.  Some of you may have had difficulty getting your order in before the midnight deadline tonight before the 35%  off PU/25% off CU sale ends so we decided to help you out.

This sale has been extended until 6 pm pacific time on Sunday, November 8th–that’s an extra 18 hours.  We know that the site is moving slow and there have been some glitches along the way.  Thanks for your patience.  Please don’t wait until tomorrow at 5:50 to check out though–pretty please!!!

For those of you waiting for your paypal payments to clear, I am doing my best to get these cleared up quickly and to get your downloads to you.  Again your patience in this matter is appreciated.

Another Great Customized Gift Idea…

Hi everyone.  Krista Sahlin of Sahlin Studio posting on Andrea’s blog to share my newest product at ScrapMatters.  Are you looking for that perfect holiday gift?

I know what you’re thinking… holiday shopping already?? It can be difficult to find that perfect
gift for significant others, parents, grandparents or yourself.

I have a great idea for a classic, timeless gift that will be enjoyed everyday.
A gorgeous piece of artwork. And by artwork, I mean a canvas print of your loved ones.
What is a canvas print? A canvas print is where a photo is blended beautifully with natural
textures, grain, meaningful text, custom images and color to create an image perfect for printing on canvas. Perfect to create the gift of a lifetime.

Custom Canvas Design by Sahlin Studio:

A custom canvas art design to display in your home, office or any place needing beautiful art work.

Here are some examples of my completed work:

Sample Custom Canvas #2 by Sahlin Studios available at ScrapMatters

There are other examples in the Custom Canvas product listing in my shop at ScrapMatters.

I will work with you to design a custom canvas art work beautiful enough to display in the finest of galleries. Whether you want a canvas of each child, your wedding photo, your family, the kids together or all of the above. These also would be beautiful done with photos of your home, cabin or favorite vacation spot. I’ve created a multiple canvas discount, because when I am working on a canvas I have all of my “tools” out and it is extra easy to just change out images and start working on my next custom canvas design project.
It is much easier to do two or three in a row, than it is to do one today and the others tomorrow.

Custom Canvas Design prices are as follows:
Custom Canvas (1 Design) – $45
Custom Canvas (2 Designs) – $65
Custom Canvas (3 Designs) – $80

Pricing includes the custom digital canvas design. You are able to your take your design to a printer of your choice or I can help you select a printer. I’ve found canvas printing prices to be very affordable (who knew?) Canvas printing ranges by size and company (I have found superior quality work that can be printed around $30-$55).

Which makes your CUSTOM artwork only around $85 for a 12 x 12 print (custom designed, printed and shipped) to your home!!

Can you think of a better gift?? And SO original!!

Here are some more detailed pictures of canvas prints that are gallery wrapped. When a canvas is “gallery wrapped” the printed portion of the canvas continues around the sides and the back. No frame is needed to display your custom print.

Here is a picture of how several canvases look displayed in my home. I designed and printed them at 12 x 12.

November already!!!

Wow!  Where has 2009 gone? It is so hard for me to believe that November is here already.  The count down is on towards Thanksgiving and  Christmas.  I am feeling so far behind.  Is there anyone else but me that is feeling overwhelmed by this?  I usually try to make our gifts for extended family and I haven’t even decided yet exactly what I am doing.

I do plan on making calendars for several people on my gift list.  My CT made this gorgeous and practical, easy to personalize calendar for me to sell in my shop at ScrapMatters.  It uses a variety of my kits and it turned out so nice.  They even made a non-Christmas December and two different Augusts.  You just need to pop pictures in place on the top page and personalize the bottom calendar grid with birthdays if you want.  Just click on the picture below to see it up close and personal in my shop at ScrapMatters.

If you want to make a personalized 2010 calendar but aren’t sure where to get started or how to insert pictures into the pages, please leave me a comment and I will be happy to help you.  The calendar is created using png files which should work in Microsoft Word, Publisher or probably even Microsoft Works.  The calendar files will also work in Paint Shop Pro, Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus and a variety of other photo-editing programs.  Also if you create one I would love to see it.  Send me a link to where you have it posted.

HAPPY NOVEMBER ONE & ALL!

Can you believe all of the fabulous goodies?  Oh to have more time to digital scrapbook and/or hybrid scrapbook.  I just need a few more days a week and life would be good!

Allison is engaged!!!!

The happy couple.

The happy couple.

When Allison came home from her first date with Corey it seemed like there was something different in how she was talking about this new guy she met.  And there was–they quickly became inseparable and it was apparent to everyone around them that they were IN LOVE!!! Corey treats Allison so sweetly and proposed with a ring.  He is in the process of buying a house for them in Burien, so they will live close by which will be nice.

The picture above is from the Polynesian Cultural Center Luau on our family trip to Hawaii.  The tatoo on his arm is from the exhibits!

So no date is set yet, but I just wanted to share the good news.
