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.

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!
