Project Life by True North Scraps

Ever fancied doing a project life or P360 but found you don't have the time?

Yep me too. 

Well if you have you will love the new series by True North Scraps.

I'm probably not the only one who doesn't have the time to make a Project Life book from scratch.  Normally I don't really care for quick pages, but I thought this would be a time when a quick page would be perfect.

We always start these big projects with the best of intentions, but after a few weeks something happens that takes priority and then you fall behind. Falling behind leads to discouragement. Well, don't be discouraged! I've done most of the hard work for you. All you have to do is add your photos and your journaling. And better still - no need to remember to take a picture EVERY day. If you don't have enough pictures fill the spot with more journaling. It really is up to you.  

If you want to personalize your quick page further True North Scraps also has a coordinating pack of embellishments.

Want to save time AND money?  Buy the bundle and save $1.00:

 These would also lend them selves well to you hybrid scrappers out there.
 The sky's the limit. 

You can find these products in  store at Scraps N Pieces. 

 Look out for the  next edition packs coming in February!

Frolic by Wendy @ Scrapbook Bytes !!!

Once a month, the designers at SBB create a huge assortment of kits and bits using the same color palette.  The variety of themes and pieces available is phenomenal!  Best of all, every single piece is priced between $1.00 and $2.00 during Grab-A-Byte!  You can mix, match and splurge to your heart's content as you piece together the kit of your dreams!  But, they're only available like this for 1 week!  Wendy Tunison Designs has got 6 fun pieces for you this month for just $1.00 each.
If there's one thing about winter that every child knows, it's that you don't have to be a polar bear to frolic in the snow! In this whimsical winter collection, you'll find creatures of the tundra and the winter woodland, from a deer to a penguin, a hoot owl and a snowman! There are tags for journaling and an alpha set for titles, plus twinkling flakes and flourishes to add a touch of sparkle. From lollipop trees to snow flowers, ribbons, buttons, frames, and bows, this collection has everything you'll need for decorating photos and memories of your frolics in the snow.

Come by Wendy's blog tomorrow to pick the freebies the CT has made !

New release from Wendy Tunison

Who better to tell the story of our daily lives than us as we live them?  Whether you are working on P365/P52 or just scrapping your life as you live it, Wendy Tunison Designs' new kit Just Us *January* is full of wonderful pieces to help you tell your story.  This kit was created to work with January but with the variety of fun colors and ellies, you'll be sure to be able to use it time and again no matter the month or season!  With 117 unique ellies ranging from winter birds to hockey pucks, bonfires and ice fishing snowmen you're sure to find what you need for all of your winter activities.  Whether you're on the ice or on the slopes or just celebrating the New Year with family and friends, she's tried to provide the perfect pieces to accent your pages!  Of course there are date tags and plenty of flowers and snowflakes to add just the right finishing touch as well!  There are 5 add ons to this kit that I'm sure you'll find useful throughout the year but the best deal is to pick up the bundle and save yourself a little spending money to splurge on that warm cup of cocoa on your way to the rink!  This is the first kit in a series of 12 that will release throughout the year.

They even made you some beautiful freebies!  You'll have to stop back by Wendy's blog tomorrow for those though.  Trust me, the trip will be worth it!
Have you had a chance to check out the awesome new SNP collab yet?
And if you love folds and creases in your papers as much as I do, you'll love the new CU Grab Bag!
Speaking of SNP news, I have to give a giant shout out to our CTM, Amy, because she won Layout Of The Month with this AWESOME layout using Wendy's kit Spirited.  Whoot!  Congrats, Amy!
Oooh, and one more fun little item of interest...Wendy's Facebook Speed Scraps are back!  And even more exciting...there's a chat tab now so we can chat while we're speed scrapping!  Double whoot!

True North has two new releases today !!!

Happy New Year!
Not sure about all of you but lots of us girls over at TNS have kicked off the new year 
feeling a bit under the weather. however Dawna has the perfect kit for us all in

Feeling sick is no fun at all, but this cute mini kit is.  
You get 6 papers and 30 elements in this mini, perfect for scrapping those duvet day pictures.

This mini kit is available for 30% off for the entire month of January too.

Dawna has another 'rockin'' kit in store for Bits N Pieces collection.

Have you been to Las Vegas recently? How about Graceland? Did you just see Elvis in the local convenience store and grab a pic of him with your smart phone? Well, you are going to need this! There are 38 unique elements themed around none other than the King of Rock N Roll. There's plenty of gold and sparkle, fit for a king. I have 38 elements and 16 papers that are a little retro, a little sparkly, and there's even been a hound dog walking around on one of the papers. Each part of this kit is only $1 for the first week of January. On January 8th, they will be packaged together into a kit and the price will increase slightly, so pick them up now while they are still a big bargain!

Here's what I made using the different parts:

(it is a RAK I did for my BFF Paula when she was in Vegas)

That's also have a little bit to tell you about things happening at Scraps N Pieces right now
