Radio Silence

Things have been pretty quiet here, but not because I've abandoned my blog. No, no. Turns out, I'm having a baby! And this baby has a serious list of no-no's for mommy.

Things that currently make me puke:
Smelling a pot heat up to boiling
Talking about Laundry
Thinking about laundry
Changing my clothes
Did I mention Photoshop? Can I tell you how big of a dent this puts in my digiplans?
Seeing template packs
The smell of food in the car
Saltine Crackers

I am 9 weeks along, so hopefully, in the next 3 weeks, some of these (photoshop) will stop making me sick because this is ridiculous!!

Good things about this pregnancy-
I crave fruit
I want veggies
I'm having a baby!
I'm realizing HOW helpful my older kids are!!

Super Saturday and Dough Much Fun

We have selected two fun kits for our Super Saturday Sale. Carving Pumpkins and Cowboy Up, you can get either the kit or the Quick Pages set for only $2.00 each. Images are linked to our SNP store.


 Scraps N Pieces is super excited about this fun new kit they have this week! What child doesn't love play dough? Use this kit to document your little artist's doughy creations. The colors are bright and the elements are fun and a bit crazy, just like play-dough! This kit is so great, you'll want to let the kids make a mess just so you can scrap it! The kit will be 1/2 off at both Scraps N Pieces and My Memories the first week. If you purchase at Scraps N Pieces, it will include an additional solid creased paper pack FREE WITH DOWNLOAD. After the first week, the extra pack will only be available separately. Take a look at how super fun this is.

 Here is the additional paper pack you get FREE the first week.
 In addition, Memories by Digital Design made a couple coordinating cluster packs that go so well with this kit. They will be on sale this week as well, so be sure to grab them. Their CT had a lot of fun with this kit as well. Take a look at these super cute layouts!

 and a freebie from Sheri plus a freebie from Lindsay

March 1st!!

Even though the calendar says March, it still feels like winter in so many places right now.  When will we ever start to feel some warm spring air?  Around Scraps N Pieces, we have been keeping ourselves warm by designing some amazing products for you, our awesome members and customers.

Are you a fan of the art journaling style of scrapping?  If you are, then you are going to LOVE the store's March collab kit.  It's called Express Yourself, and it is awesome!


Do you know the definition of earworm?  It's defined as, "a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person's mind."  And I think the music-themed Bits N Pieces for March will be running through your mind all month until you snatch them all up.  The pieces are just $1 each the first week, and then will regular price and possibly bundled up into full kits.  And don't forget our Bit N Pieces month-long challenge; snag some great kits at a low price and earn forum points in the process.


Our members mean so very much to us.  The 3-year old son of one our members was just recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer last week. This is something they would have never thought would happen to their family.  It is Stage 4, as this type of cancer is often not symptomatic until that time. He will have to go through some aggressive chemo, then surgery to remove his tumor, then more chemo. There is a 40-50% survival rate, but his doctors are very optimistic. This family has 3 other small children and a new baby on the way. Together, the Scraps N Pieces designers developed an amazing kit called Little Warrior, to help raise funds that will cover some of their costs at this time. This kit is a beautiful children’s hospital themed collab that chronicles the journey that this little warrior is facing. All proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to this little family to help with expenses.


Be sure to add the March speed scraps to your calendar, or better yet, go to the forum calendar and set a reminder.

Here are some closer up parts of the BNP!

Is your favorite part of the football game, the marching band? Or maybe your daughter is in her high school's color guard or your son plays in the drum line. This kit could even be used for those concert band or orchestra photos you have. It is fun, but elegant with doodled instruments and flags and the gold and silver give it a hint of sparkle. Scraps N Pieces has an element pack, paper pack, cardstock pack, and Glitter pack all for just $1 each this week. Plus there are several other designers that have coordinating packs that you can grab. Go take a look at them all HERE SNP_HT_SNPpapers SNP_HT_SNPelements SNP_HT_SNPcardstock SNP_HT_glitters   Amy Fullmer made these adorable clusters to go with this kit and make your layouts easier.
