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.

Don’t forget to hop on our fantastic blog train, see the post below for more details.  Lots of great quick pages and freebies.

First Stop on the ScrapMatters DSD Blog Train

Thanks so much for visiting my blog–the first stop on the ScrapMatters blog train.  Digital Scrapbook Day (DSD) has been so much fun this year and it is just getting started.  So many totally fantastic treats are in those grab bags.  😀  You add a sale and I’m in digital scrapbook and hybrid heaven.

Digital Scrapbook Day Celebration at ScrapMatters

To celebrate we have this great collab kit, “A Slice of Life.”  It is perfect for scrapping those everyday moments–going for walks, watching tv, picking up the kids and just hanging out.

It is also FREE with a $15 purchase November 6-11th.

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.

Just for my blog readers I have it on sale for 10% off.  Use coupon code:  aldblog2010 This code is only good for this product but we are having a huge sale at ScrapMatters that starts this coming Friday and you can use this coupon code in addition to the sale price and get the calendar at a great price.  What a great, inexpensive Christmas gift for grandma and grandpa and distant relatives.

Here are some sample pages–there are more on the product page (click image above to go to product page).

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.

Little Lovebirds by Andilynn Designs

Little Lovebirds is on of my favorite kits.  I love the colors and the mix of modern and vintage.   It is on sale for 50% off that’s just $3.00 for this large kit.  It has a black glittered, script alpha, which I just realized is not on the preview.  I picked this kit when I saw that Tracie had her wedding kit on sale too, because I thought that they looked so terrific together.

Here is a layout that I made with it.  I did recolor the alpha from black to red (it recolors very easily) for this layout.

Sneak Peek of New Digital Scrapbook Kit by Andilynn Designs Available Friday at ScrapMatters

Sneak Peek of Andilynn Designs Newest Digiscrap Kit...coming to ScrapMatters tomorrow!

Sneak Peek of Andilynn Designs newest digiscrap kit...coming to ScrapMatters tomorrow!

I am so excited about my new kit called, Fall Frolic,  coming to my shop at ScrapMatters tomorrow.  Neeny on my Andilynn Designs Creative Team made this darling sneaky peek for me.  My CT is so awesome.   There’s also digital scrap freebies that coordinate with the kit too.  See you tomorrow.

I Love Glee! Confessions of a high school musical ensemble lover…

No,  I don’t love High School Musical the movie, actually I’ve never seen it, so I guess I might.   But I do love the TV show Glee.  I’ve always loved musicals, but never in a million years thought that I would like this one,  it totally surprised me.  Funny, touching, smart, witty, wicked and just plain fun.  The music is incredible.  I love this rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”  Fabulous, it’s from episode five and starts at 40:11 if you want to watch it being performed on Hulu.  Don’t laugh that I know where!

And then there are all the funny You Tube lip syncs.  This one is pretty darn funny.

I think I have an infected root canal or something.  I can’t sleep because my left maxilla (upper jaw bone) is so swollen and sore, despite the vicodin.  In fact, the vicodin is probably why I am writing this post at all.  I should have been working, but no I had to watch Glee and write this  meaningless post, but for those of you who think all I do is work on SM, see I do have a few diversions.

Oh and my other favorite show right now is Bones, DH and DD watch it with me, we cozy up together and watch the terrific ensemble cast work their magic.  Despite the gore, DH and I find ourselves laughing at the interaction between Booth and Brennan and the rest of the cast.

Well I have a new kit, with coordinating word art, bonus alpha and a freebie coming out on Friday.  If I don’t have to spend all day at the dentist I will try to get a cute sneak peak up tomorrow (I mean today).

Hybrid 4th!

Hybrid 4th!

Hi everyone–it’s Andrea here and I am so excited for today! It’s my birthday today and I’m going to celebrate by having a sale at SM and giving away all kinds of fun goodies. All of our digital personal use products are on sale, with a few exceptions, for 30% off and all of our commercial/professional use products are on sale, with a few exceptions, for 25% off. We also have a MEGA template kit available FREE with a $20 purchase in the shop.

MEGA Template Pack

MEGA Template Pack

Can you say–timesaving, fabulous scrapping! These templates will help you scrap your summer (or winter) painlessly. Mega Template Kit FREE with $20 purchase! Mega Template Kit FREE with $20 purchase! There will also be a Hybrid Grab bag free with a $10 purchase of various hybrid products. Our hybrid designers will also have hybrid grab bag or two for sale.

Hybrid greatness is coming to SM today or tomorrow and while we’ve always had such a great hybrid team at SM, they haven’t always had much to work with, their very resourcefulness has been amazing. Anyway to remedy the situation SM is going to start selling Kaiser Craft’s amazing pressboard albums. These are perfect for mini-albums, they are sturdier than chipboard, yet light weight. We also have new hybrid designers as well as a new hybrid CT just waiting to show off their skills. Since this is SM’s first time selling tangible, IRL (in real life) products it should be quite an adventure. The hybrid celebration will continue all month long during July, so keep checking the shop, forum and gallery to see what fun ideas the hybrid team is creating.

Hope you will be joining us for the big kickoff!
