OK has it really been that long since I have posted some new fun stuff here?! I think it is the season, everyone is busy. :) However Trixie Scraps has released two different 'build your own' kits to two of her stores! First up this month's Grab a Byte sale at Scrapbook-Bytes. The colors for this one seemed to fit a father/son theme. Just Like Dad collection includes great striped, plaid and polka dot papers; lots of stars and fun boy/dad themed wordart; some embossed, pin-striped cardstock solids; and a basic alpha set in three color variations! You can find each piece for just $1 now through December 19th, only at Scrapbook-Bytes! Each preview below is linked.

Trixie Scraps Guest Desiging Spot

So I wanted to announce that Trixie Scraps is starting a month-long guest spot at Funky Playground today!

In celebration, she has got a special release to kick it all off! This kit is part of the November Playgroup at Funky Playground

Sometimes, it just seems like a black cloud parks itself over your head and just won't go away! Bring on the Rain is meant for scrapping those times. Life is not always perfect and it's okay to scrap about it! It's often the best kind of "therapy" there is for working out feelings, thoughts, and emotions. The kit contains 14 papers, 65 elements and 1 unicase alpha with numbers and punctuation included.

Here is the November event list at Funky Playground - it's going to be a busy, fun month!! Trixie Scraps products have loaded to the store there - and they'll be on sale starting tomorrow!

Now this is my layout-


Happy Halloween- Some Fun New Treats!

Trixie Scraps has been working on a special kit for a little while now. Courage, Hope, and Strength is a very special kit inspired by the requests of her customers. Since the theme of this kit is the women who have had or do have Breast Cancer, she will be donating 50% of the proceeds from this kit to Susan G. Komen For the Cure. Of course, this kit also has plenty of perfectly pink papers and versatile elements for your everyday girly pages, too! Celebrate your moms, sisters, daughters, cousins, aunt, grandmothers and friends with this beautiful kit. And help donate to a great cause in the process!

This kit is available in all her shops: Trixie Scraps Scrap Matters Gotta Pixel Scrapbook Bytes

Now if that is beautiful enough for you run and grab it, she has a little deal to sweeten the pot for you, too! If you purchase the Courage fundraiser kit before the end of the month, you'll receive a coupon in your downloads good for 20% off a future purchase... and it will work during DSD, too! It's a great chance to save a bundle on her products during DSD (and the coupon will be in your downloads at all of my stores, too!):

Also, to nab a coordinating freebie, head over the the Trixie Scraps Blog today.
