New release: Adore

Happy February!

You got a sneak peek of the newest BNP products yesterday. Today, you get to see them all and I think you’ll adore them!

When I introduced January’s BNP products, Change, to you, I mentioned that each month’s BNP products would be inspired by a different word. This month’s word is ADORE. Whether it’s a person, place or thing you adore, you’ll find lots of ways to use these products and record your favorite memories.

There are five products in all this month: two paper packs, one cardstock pack, an elements pack and an alpha pack.You can grab any–or all–of the packs for $1 each through February 7.

Here’s a look at some of what the creative team did with these products.

New release: Pumpkin Spice BNP

Happy October!

Are you enjoying DSD weekend? Taking advantage of all the great sales? I’ve been browsing stores and have loaded up my wishlists. I’ve got a lot going on this weekend on the personal front, but I’m hopeful I can squeeze in some time to shop and scrap.

Today is the first of the month and that means new Bits N Pieces products. This month’s palette featured beautiful, deep, rich colors that reminded me of autumn and the most ubiquitous of fall flavors, pumpkin spice. I didn’t want to give you gourd overload, so I kept the pumpkins to a reasonable level and packed these products with beautiful patterns, cozy knits, and fun elements. You can grab all three packs for $1 each through October 7–no coupon code needed.

The paper pack includes 24 patterned papers, including florals, leaves, pumpkins, dots, gingham, plaids, cork, stripes, houndstooth, damask, and more.shel_ps_paperpreview

Many of you have told me you love having multiple texture options for solid colored papers. This month, I’ve created a solid-colored paper pack that includes lightly textured solids, heavily textured cardstock, and cozy sweater knit papers.shel_ps_cardstockpreview

Finally, there’s an element pack, chock-full of goodness. It includes 60 unique themed and general elements.shel_ps_elementpreview

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!

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.

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!
