Now to today’s goodies: TWO sales and a Giveaway!

Today’s new papers! We have a new Hot Air Balloons – Imagine 12×12 Paper Set! (And this set also inspired today’s Steampunk Flash sale — more info on the related Flash sale is below.)

Hot air balloons, butterflies, clocks, and a bright color palette make a feminine version of Steampunk. Set of 3 double-sided 12″ x 12″ cardstock-weight papers.

This is HUGE (over 260 items — yes, we sold out some papers yesterday), including single sheets AND paper sets/pads!

The paper sale ends Wednesday night, January 1st, 2020 but first come, first served and most of the papers will not be reordered! View them all here!

Back to today’s news: I’m including the new paper set in today’s Giveaway!

Highlights from the Scrapbook Paper Sale!


Wow! Another HUGE group: from Paper to Collage Sheets to Charms (see the tags in the theme section for links to even more categories).

Plus: anything on clearance or a digital image in this collection is marked down to 50% off! Over 80 items!

Ooh, see that new Little Niche Shrine – Gear at right? It’s similar to the Scalloped-shaped shrine that Design Team Members Nichola Battilana and Shannon Cooper recently used in cute projects (psst: those links on their names go to blog posts with photos). All the niche shrines are made to be hung on the wall (and include a tiny scored piece to glue to the back as a hanger). Not only is this gear-shaped shrine new, and on sale, it’s also included in today’s Giveaway!

(Speaking of Giveaways, we have the winner to announce from yesterday’s Valentine Theme Sale Giveaway. The winner is Jean Marmo! Check your email for info about your prize package!)
