Trixie Scraps latest sales happenings

All kinds of good stuff going on at Trixie Scraps this last weekend!!

And here’s Trixie with all the happenings:

Trixie Scraps * Scrap Matters * Gotta Pixel * Scrapbook Bytes * Funky Playground
There are crazy sales everywhere this weekend, and digiland is no exception.  Here are the sale breakdowns for all of my stores:
My shop at Scrap Matters: 40% off Friday & Saturday, 35% off Sunday, and 25% off Monday
My guest shop at Funky Playground: 45% off Friday
My personal Trixie Scraps store as well as my shops at Gotta Pixel and Scrapbook Bytes will all be 50% off Friday-Monday!
If you like to buy direct from me, just click the image below to head straight to my personal shop and start saving:

As if that's not fun enough, my four main shops (not my guest shop) will have two grab bags available.  I wanted to try a new twist on the grab bag, so I'm letting you create your own!  The "Make Your Own" Grab Bag is available in two sizes so you can choose the bag that best fits your budget!  The $3 MYOGB ($13 value) includes a coupon for your choice of 1 kit, 1 template pack and 1 element or alpha pack.  The $5 MYOGB ($25 value!) includes a coupon for your choice of 2 kits, 2 template packs and 2 element or alpha packs!  I hope you find this a fun twist on the normal grab bag sales offered this time of year.  This is the perfect time to nab all those things on your wishlist!  Hurry though, this deal only lasts through Monday!  **Please note, collab kits and collab products are excluded from the grab bag offer**

Now, of course I couldn't stop there, right??  My Happiness in a Cup Grab-a-Byte packs from earlier this month have been turned into a full collection.  You can now purchase the GAB packs as a full kit, or purchase the bundle to also pick up the coordinating element clusters and double-page template pack, too!
Happiness in a Cup bundle * Happiness in a Cup kit * Happiness in a Cup clusters * Seeing Double templates volume 3

Carrin whipped up two new sets of blogwear from some recent releases this week, too!  Being the coffee lover that I am, I just love the Happiness in a Cup blogwear - how fun would it be to decorate a blog with it, then sit sipping your coffee every morning while you compose your blog message for the day?  She also created a beautiful blogwear set from Courage, Hope and Strength - perfect for all of you currently battling or surviving breast cancer and documenting your journey on your blog.

Last, but certainly not least this week, I have a new set of element clusters for you made from one of last week's new releases, The Sneezin Season.  This cute set includes six border and/or frame clusters.  I just love how quick and easy my pages come together with these pre-made clusters, don't you?

Speaking of last week's releases, in case you missed them, here is a brief recap.  As I mentioned, this month's Gotta Grab It packs were released as a full kit, The Sneezin' Season.  And, I also released a beautiful, chic, sophisticated collab with Mye de Leon named City Girl.

If you like, I have a freebie on my blog today that coordinates with Happiness in a Cup... make sure to hop on over and snag this one!

So that’s it!!  And one last thing from me,

Happy Anniversary Tracy & Erick!!

Hope ya’ll are having a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping weekend!!

Happy 4th of July and my freebies

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I have been a very busy girl with tons to show you.  And since it’s The Fourth I’ll start with the Americana…

First up, cause well she released first, not playing favorites or nothing here, is Trixie Scraps “Old Glory Collab” with Sarah Bennett

Available at:
ScrapMatters           Gotta Pixel            Trixie Scraps

A simple card yes, but it’s also the start towards my goal.  What goal is that?  To start making cards for Operation Write Home.  (Formerly know as Cards for Heroes.)

A fantastic nonprofit group who’s simple mission is: “Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.”

I hope ya’ll will go check them out and if you can’t contribute cards maybe send a little donation, it doesn’t take much money to send off their boxes and every little bit helps, because they are not just reboxing.  They are sorting, checking, and fixing up cards injured in shipment.  Or worse, did you know glitter can kill??  Glitter is really the only no-no at OWH (other than death images, go figure) because glitter can get on a soldiers uniform and basically will show up in the enemy’s night vision goggles.  Yah really!! 
So no glitter for the soldiers please.

Interested in helping?  Here’s their info:
Main OWH
FAQ/The basics/All about OWH
Most Needed
Any Hero Cards

You’ll be seeing lots more from me on this in the future, not sure (and I’m not being sarcastic, this time anyway) why this has taken such a spot in my heart, could be an almost lifetime spent as an Air Force brat, spouse and now ANG supporter oh and those many years spent as a government employee too.  You just get it in your blood and can’t shake it, I guess.  Plus it will be a great way to use of the obscene stash of paper goodies I have accumulated (and keep buying although I rarely use them like I should) over the years and now rarely use since the switch to digi.  And a great place to send my hybrid “samples” to also.  So please check them out.

Ok, so shall we continue?…..

Melly Scraps has a Fourth themed kit too,
this one is a tad more masculine and I love it too.

By dawn’s early light are those worn edge papers I see?!? {swoon}  And some lovely word bits too?

And check out the Rugged Alpha included with kit! 
And an add on alpha that’s just too fun!

And now for the first freebie,
I’m made a QP of my Rugged Americana layout.

qppreviewYou can click here to go the 4shared link to download.

Then we have Trixie Scraps “My Summer Garden” oh, I love this one!  I really enjoy by veggie garden, I’m kind of a girly girl that I don’t particularly like my hands dirty but once I get over myself I’m all in, except the grass part, allergic to grass, kinda take some of the fun out. 

 Trixie Scraps           Scrap Matters            Gotta Pixel

And on the Make It Hybrid Monday Post at the Trixie Scraps Stars CT page I made a recipe card freebie. 

Scamper over and check it out.  And BTW every other week I do a new post of hybrid goodness, and the ladies on the team are doing posts everyday, some fun challenges with great prizes plus great freebies and lots of great stuff happens all the time over there so please swing by and check out the fun. 

And that’s where I’m going to wrap things up with you today.  I have some great things coming up that I can’t wait to finish so I can show you.  Like:  I got a hybrid guest spot with Amy Stoffel of Scrap Orchard and I’m so excited to show you the little something I made with the kit she’s releasing later this week.

And of course the dear Lady Janice of Scrapper’s Delights has an Alice In Wonderland inspired kit, that’s just too much!  Oh I can’t wait to finish up my LO’s (and at least one hybrid) so I can show you.

I’m sure I had more going on last month than this, but talking about all the stuff I need to do has me itching to get started so off I go!

Sending my wishes that you and your family have a fun and safe holiday weekend!! (Wear sunscreen, ear protection and have bucket of water ready to put out the flames!)  We’ll see you again soon!
