Happy DSD weekend!


Yes, I know it’s only Wednesday but the weekend–DSD weekend, specifically–starts early around here! And no, you’re not losing your mind. DSD weekend is earlier than in previous years. A large number of store owners discussed the idea and decided to move it up a month, at least for this year.

Lots to tell you about this weekend.

First up, I hope you can join us over the forums at SNP. We’re doing a whole bevy of fun activities and for each portion you complete, you win part of our DSD kit, Kind Hearts.


In addition to the activities, we’re also having a storewide sale through Monday, October 3. Save 50% off your purchase today through Saturday. On Sunday and Monday, you can save 40% on your purchase. We’re also having special flash sales on Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned to my Twitter and Facebook pages for announcements about my flash sales. The savings will be HUGE but will be for a very limited time only!

As part of DSD weekend, I’ve also brought back the popular BYO grab bag offers. You can get five kits for $5 or five bundles for $20.shel_dsd2016_byogb


Besties is a request from a loyal customer. She was in need of friendship-themed kit that could work for friends of all ages and genders and I created this fun, vibrant kit just for her. It includes 26 papers (15 patterned, 11 solid), 46 unique elements, and one full alpha (uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and punctuation) in five colors.


In celebration of the weekend, I’ve also created three special add-ons. The freebies can be picked up here, in my newsletter, and on my Facebook page. The newsletter went out this morning but don’t worry if you missed today’s issue. Every two-three days I’ll send the latest subscribers a copy of it so you can get the freebie.

One of the freebies you can get is this paint pack. It includes two paint pieces that coordinate with the kit. Both are shown to scale against a 12×12 background. Click on the image below for your direct download.  Don’t delay though–the freebies will only be available through October 12.shel_besties_paintpreview

Be sure to keep your eyes on this space and on my other social media accounts (Twitter and Facebook) for special announcements throughout the weekend. I’ll also be releasing a beautiful new set of autumn-themed products on Saturday and you’ll definitely want to grab those!

Have fun scrapping and shopping!

Are you have a good week? Mine’s been OK. I’m looking forward to the weekend though.

If any of my products have been on your wishlist, now’s a great time to stop by my store and buy. I’m the featured designer this week at the store and everything–including bundles–in my store is 40% off through September 21.

I’ll also be doing a special chat session this Saturday, September 20 at 3pm Central Time. It’ll take place in the SNP chatroom. There will be coupons, prizes, and fun–lots and lots of fun. Hope to see you there!

New kit: Field Trip

Does anyone else feel like summer was a “blink and you’ll miss it” sort of event this year? It sure feels like that to me.

Summer’s not quite officially over but a lot of students, teachers, and education professionals have already started the new school year. If you ask some kids, other than recess, their favorite part of school is field trips. With that in mind, I created a collection of field trip-themed products for this month’s Bits N Pieces collection. The best part? You can get all three pieces for $1 each through September 7.




Head on over to the store now to take advantage of this great deal!
