New release: 2017 title templates

Happy Thursday!

Are you having a good week? Ready for the weekend? I’m looking forward to it. My nephew turns six this weekend and there’s a birthday party involving hibachi, birthday cake, and an American Ninja Warrior gym experience. Should be fun!

One of the biggest trends in scrapbooking is the daily or weekly life scrapping. Using photos or mementos, you scrap the story of your day/week. By the end of the year, you have an album detailing your favorite memories. I decided to do a photo of the day adventure this year. I take at least one photo a day to capture what I’m doing, thinking, or feeling or what’s happening in the world.  I’m 18 for 18 so far!

Once all my weekly layouts are done, I’ll put them together in an album. Like any album though, it needs a cover. This newest set of templates, the 2017 title templates, is designed exactly for that. It includes four 12×12 templates in .TIFF, .PSD, and .PNG file formats. They’re available now in my store and are 40% off through January 26.

Here’s one page I created in a matter of just a few minutes. I used my Change products in creating this. (Reminder: the Change products are 40% off through the month of January.)


New release: Change

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe we’re already at the start of another new year. Personally, I’m ready for a clean slate and the exciting possibilities. Last year was a very challenging one for me. There were a lot of changes–some expected, some unexpected, some good, some bad. Fortunately, I’ve come through it all stronger and wiser and with a clearer understanding of who I am.

When I sat down to plan out my designs for 2017, I drew inspiration from a workshop I recently attended. During one exercise, the leaders instructed us to write down any words that described something we valued. I created quite a list–over 30 words in all. I decided to use the list as inspiration for my 2017 Bits N’ Pieces products. Each month is inspired by a different word that can be used very broadly and will help you record your memories from the year. For those who are keeping daily, weekly or monthly albums, the collections will help you create those albums.

January’s word is change. Change can come in a lot of forms–big (change in marital status, house, job, etc. ) or small (hair color, recipe, etc.). Whatever the change(s), the Change line of products is designed to help your preserve those moments and memories. There are currently three products in the collection; I’ll be releasing more products next week. As usual, you’ll be able to pick up any of these three packs for $1 each through January 7.

New releases, a BIG sale, and a freebie!

I’ve got all sorts of fun new stuff for you today including a new kit, new template set, a sale, AND a freebie!

The first thing to share with you is a new kit, Gather Together. I can imagine what you might be thinking: Um, Shel? Thanksgiving was two weeks ago and it’s now winter. Yeah, I know. I started this kit in mid-October. Then life happened. I got sick, a family member was diagnosed with cancer, my godson was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, and a whole litany of other things occurred that made it impossible to finish it before Thanksgiving. I didn’t want it to sit on my hard drive until next year, so I finished it up earlier this week and decided to release it now. You have pictures from fall and Thanksgiving you can use it for, right?

The kit includes 33 papers (24 patterned, 9 solid), 65 unique elements, and one full alpha (uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and punctuation).

I also created a smaller coordinating card pack to go with it. It includes eight 3×4 cards in both vertical (shown) and horizontal orientations.

Want it all? Grab the bundle.

I’ve also released a new set of templates to help you work on your 2017 calendar. The Plan Ahead: December 2017 calendar templates are available now.

Because it’s the holiday season and creating calendars for loved ones is a popular gift, ALL of my 2017 calendar templates are 50% off through the end of the month. I’ve also bundled all 12 sets of templates into one massive, money-saving product for you.

And, today only, I’m having a special one-day sale in my store. EVERYTHING is 50% off–including bundles! The sale only runs through 11:59pm Central Time tonight, so don’t wait!

Finally, a freebie for you. As part of the Countdown to Christmas happening on the SNP store blog, I’m offering this special one-page year in review template. You can grab it here or by clicking on the image below.

New release: Change of Address

Happy December! It’s hard to believe it’s already the last month of 2016. It seems like not all that long ago we were ringing in the new year and we’ll soon ring in another one. As I was reflecting on this year and looking ahead to next year, one of the big things on the horizon for me is a move to a new residence. A long commute, coupled with a desire to live closer to the Cities, is making my decision easier.

I know from my Facebook news feed that many of my friends, customers, and clients have moved into new spaces the past few months. And whether you’re buying, selling, or renting a new place, the Change of Address products were designed with you in mind. They’re available now in store and are just $1 each through December 7.shel_coa_paperpreviewshel_coa_cardstockpreview
