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.

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 #1 by Sahlin Studio available at ScrapMatters

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.

Fall Frolic–Funtastic Kit and Freebies from Andilynn Designs

Sorry!!! I know I told you I had a new digital scrapbook kit, some coordinating items and a freebie coming out yesterday.  I fully intended to write this post yesterday.  But the Kirby dog got sick and I spent quite a bit of time Thursday night and yesterday taking care of him.  So I am late again!  The story of my life, sometimes I wonder why I bite off so much, but I just can’t seem to help it.

So here are my new goodies for this week, all of the images are linked to their spot in my store at ScrapMatters.  I had such a blast making this kit.  It was kind of funny though the blue started out a lot more gray.  As the weather here in Seattle turned gray the gray started turning into blue.  I miss the blue skies.  The freebie is further down in the post, my not so subtle way of trying to get you to read to the end of  the post.

Look at how my CT rocked this kit.  They came up with some fabulous LOs–the images are clickable so you can go give them some love if you want to.  But make sure you read to the end of the post for some good, old-fashioned savings on Fall Frolic–the kit and/or the word art and/or the bonus alphas.

Mother’s Day Giveaway

Jessica, one of my real-life friends and a fantastic photographer, is sponsoring a comment contest on her blog.  She is  giving away a free photography mini-session for Mother’s Day to people that live in the Seattle/Bellevue area. She made this little story board for me to put on my blog to showcase her work.  Another one of my friends is the beautiful pregnant woman in the story board below.  I just love that photo of her.  Jessica does a fantastic job finding catch lights in the eyes of her subjects, as you can see when you look at these darling little boys.

Also as a part of this contest some other IRL friends Allison & Teri are giving away darling handmade sensory quilts from their company Touchy Feely Quilts.

How cute is this little quilt? Perfect to keep a child happy and quiet at church, on trips etc.
