New releases: What’s Cooking add-ons

Happy Friday! Hope you had a good week!

Last week, I teased that there were going to be some add-ons to the What’s Cooking set of products. They’re here and they’re on sale–50% off through August 18!

First up: a set of 3×4 pocket cards. It includes 12 cards in vertical (shown) and horizontal designs. Cards with bleed and a high resolution .pdf file are also included.shel_WC_cardpreview

A number of you have mentioned you’d like more word bits or word strips to use in your layouts. I heard you and created this set of 67 word snippets to go with the products. They’re shown to scale against a 12×12 background.shel_WC_snippetpreview

Finally, a set of four 4×6 recipe card templates. They’re a great way to share you favorite recipes in a fun and creative manner.shel_WC_recipetemplate

Scrap It to Win It!

Every summer, Scraps & Pieces hosts a six-week scrapping contest called Scrap It to Win It. This year’s contest kicks off next Friday, August 12.

What I love about it is that everyone moves on to the next round, unless they fail to post their layout by the deadline each week. We’ve also relaxed the rules a bit to encourage more creativity and added a bonus week for the weekly winners. For each week you participate, you can collect another portion of the super duper mega-kit created especially for this contest. (I’ve seen it; you’ll love it.)

Want more details? Click on the flyer below to be taken to the forum for details and to sign up. Don’t delay–the contest starts in one week!


New Release: Plan Ahead August 2017 calendar templates

Happy Thursday!

How’s your week been? I’ve been battling a nasty head cold that has completely sapped my energy. Fortunately, I’ve been able to adjust my schedule to help speed along my recovery.

One thing I have been able to get done this week is the latest installment in my Plan Ahead: 2017 calendar templates series. The August 2017 set includes room for up to nine pictures. It includes three sizes (11×8.5, 12×12, and 12×18) and three file formats (TIFF, PSD, and PNG). You can use them to create quick pages for sale or for creative team duties. They’re available now and are 40% off through Sunday, August 14.


Now that we’re up to eight template sets in the series, I’ve also combined the May, June, July, and August 2017 templates into one money-saving bundle for you. You save 40% over purchasing each month separately.shel_PA2017_bundle2preview



New release: What’s Cooking?

Happy August!

Is it just me, or does it seem like summer is FLYING by this year? I made a quick trip to Target the other day and their back-to-school section was fully stocked. Yikes! Anyone else wish we could slow down time just a bit?

I’m a little behind on everything right now. July was a busy month for me on personal and professional fronts, leaving with me less time for creative endeavors. Throw in coming down with a nasty case of bronchitis and well, I don’t have as much as I’d hoped for you on the first of the month. The good news is though that I’ll be releasing some extra products the end of next week! Keep an eye out on this space, as well as my newsletter and Facebook page for info about additional What’s Cooking products.

What I do have for you the first of the month is three packs available at $1 each through August 7. There are two paper packs and an elements pack.

The first paper pack includes 24 papers. Patterns include cooking utensils, cooking words, plaid, stripes, floral, wood, checkerboard, geometric, and more. The “solids” you see all have subtle patterns on them.


There’s also a coordinating cardstock pack. So many of you told me you liked the cardstock pack last month that I decided to offer up another one this month. It includes all seven palette colors in three styles: lightly textured solids, heavily textured cardstock, and creased papers.


Finally, there is an elements pack. Loaded with 60 unique elements, it includes a nice mix of both themed and general elements. Themed elements include a whisk, wooden spoon, can opener, potholder, slicer. eggbeater, word art, peeler, measuring spoons, mixing bowl, spatula, flipper, silverware, rolling pin, and more. General elements include bows, ribbon, ricrac, lace, buttons, flowers, leaves, flair, frames, stitching, and more.


Though the products were designed for cooking-related pictures, they can be used for so much more, as you can see from my creative team’s layouts.
