2 releases at TNS and a Xmas tag blog train !!!

It's Thanksgiving (in the USA) and that means it's the beginning of the

Holly Days

This beautiful kit of rich colours is very festive and perfect for your holiday pages.  The 16 patterned papers evoke thoughts of steamy windows from Christmas baking, beautiful gift wrap, and the outdoors.  The 8 card stocks are so detailed that you would swear they were real paper.  I've included a full sparkly alpha that will add a touch of elegance to your scrapbook pages.  And of course, the 56 elements have been meticulously designed to attractively accent your holiday memories.

Holly Days is on sale November 22 for 30% off,  on Black Friday it will be  a whopping 50% off, and then goes back to 30% off from November 24 until November 30.

 Here is mine:

 Blog Hop

And on top of that, we made gift tags for you to collect and print out to use this season. 

Here is my tag:

And here are the links to the North Stars blogs

But WAIT!  There's more!

Have you been looking for an elegant black and white kit?  

TNS has a beautiful one being released on Black Friday.

5 Shades of Grey

5 shades of grey is destined to be a best seller, just like the book with a similar title. 
 However, this gorgeous monochromatic kit is much more suitable for scrapbook layouts!

There are 41 glittery, shiny and classic elements inside this kit.  The 14 patterned papers, 5 glitter papers and 5 solid papers are a perfect complement to the elements and they will make your LOs exude class.

As a bonus with purchase, the LBD (Li'l Black Dress) Alpha is included for free.

It is also available for sale separately.  It's sparkly and just like a li'l black dress, it is a must-have staple for every scrapper!

You can pick up 5 Shades of Grey on Black Friday for 50% off, then it goes to 30% off on November 24 until November 30th.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a little note !!!

I do understand that NOT everyone has Facebook.  Some days I wish I didn't have one .. lol !!  At least a personal one.  I swear that place is like High School ALL over again.  

BUT ... I have gotten some comments in regards to my SNP Blog train for this month ... from people who don't have Facebook and would like to have the free elements. I enjoy creating things, and by no means do I wish to not share my work with anyone who wants it.

To those of you who don't .... I can not access an email address via your comment on my blog so I can not send the elements portion out to you.  There is an email address listed on my blog here ... so please feel free to send me an email requesting that freebie elements portion if you are still interested.  

Please understand that *liking* Facebook pages to get exclusive freebies is a wonderful way for those of us in the Digi World that want to gain new interest in our work on a broader scope.  I will always try and do my best to accommodate anyone's request.  But I am hoping I am not shooting off my own foot now being inundated with emails requesting the elements portion of the blog train without liking my Facebook page.

So I ask if you DO have a Facebook page please follow the link to that page to download the elements.  Please don't ruin it for anyone else who might not have that access.  If you do NOT have Facebook ... again please email me to request that download.

I will do my best to get those links to you ASAP.

A big THANK YOU freebie from me !!!!

Well I promised a freebie on my Honeybee's Creative Hive Facebook page for all of you that originally downloaded my elements portion of the SNP blog train ... BEFORE I realized that I had the wrong file uploaded in there.

So I have had a kit that I designed quite a long time ago and never released on my own.  So I decided that with the holiday's I would give it away as a thanks to all of you that have downloaded my freebies so far here on my blog (and now on my Facebook page)!!!

To give you a little sneaky peak at what you are going to get here is a layout I did with the kit that I am going to be giving away.

The kit is called:


Anyone who knows me ... knows I am a bit of a Disney addict (along with a scrapbooking addict).  So I created this kit as a tribute to the vintage look and not so much the traditional Disney-ish colors you might be thinking of.  I am a very big fan of the shabby chic look.  Which some may have realized with my papers I created for the November SNP Blog Train and the papers I am going to be giving away to you today !!!

Here is just a preview of some of the papers (not all shown in the preview):

There are 12 beautifully patterned papers available in this 2 part download.  So be sure to snag up both.

I will be giving away parts of the kit ... and by December 8th ... you will have yourself a full kit from me as a thanks for liking my Facebook page and visiting my creative hive.

*Note I will NOT be giving a download away next Saturday as I will be spending it with my family and recovering from Thanksgiving festivities.  (Who am I kidding ... I will be cleaning AGAIN)

On December 1st you will be gifted with the ELEMENTS portion of this kit ... and finally on December 8th I will be posting the Cardstock papers for download.  I did not make an alpha for this kit ... YET ... so who knows if there will be a "special" gift on the 15th.  You will have to check back here or on my Facebook page to see.

Please remember this kit is for personal use only ... and I enjoyed every moment of creating it with the help of some very wonderful, talented and generous commercial use artists.  If you use this kit I would greatly appreciate you giving credit to Honeybee's Creative Hive and the name of the kit in your descriptions.  

Each week a new portion is posted the previous weeks portion will go away for good. 

I will however offer this kit up for sale in one big bundle right before the holidays.  So if you miss out you can buy it up and not miss out on anything.

Without further ado ... here are your two download links.  Again be sure to download them both.  I put the 12 patterned papers into two seperate files:

If you are having difficulties downloading ... please keep in mind that dropbox might be overwhelmed so please try and come back and download.

Again ... thank you to everyone who downloaded my portion of not only the SNP Blog Train here but also the elements on my Facebook page.  I started out with only 6 likes on my page just last week ... today I am almost at 500 ... I am overwhelmed and humbled.

Many thanks ... happy downloading (and scrapping) !!!!
