A Creative Mind with Lauren Grier

Posted by in Designs and Promotions, My Product

This week I was so thrilled to get to work with one of my longest standing designer friends and favorite collab partners, Lauren Grier. La and I have made sooooo many kits together, like seriously more than I could remember when I started counting. So it was super fun to pair up, and I have to say this week’s kit is officially the best “Shauren” kit to date!


This kit is super painty and artsy and beautifully messy! You can check it out in the store HERE for a full description.

Look at these lovely layouts from the team:


So much prettiness!

Just like every week, you can get this and all of our new releases for 20% today and Saturday.  We also have a super awesome $15 free with purchase this week:


This limited edition collab from 6 of our SSD designers is soooo pretty! You don’t want to miss this offer because it is only available through July 11th!

Hope you have a super great weekend, and that you enjoy our kit!

I love grabbing up all the to-die-for new digi goodies over the weekend when they are discounted at 20% off! Another great place to find incredible deals at Sweet Shoppe is in the Bargain Bites section. Right now, Shawna has one of my all-time favorite (and, I confess – first!!) digital scrapbooking bundles for sale in Bargain Bites. Go check it out!





Shawna’s collection, contains not one, not two, but three awesome kits (and two bonus wood-grain alphas!) I love this bundle because all three kits included are so versatile and timeless! The layouts I created with these kits are some of my absolute favorite pages in my scrapbooks.

I used the kit, “, to scrapbook this layout of my son’s baby shoes:

Then, several months later, I pulled out this bundle from my digi stash and used the kit, , to scrapbook one of son’s first adventures putt-putt golfing with his grandpa.

And, I have already pulled out the kit, from the Captured Bundle once again to scrapbook a layout from a birthday party we attended just a few weeks ago.

A Happy Family: Water Days!

Posted by in Uncategorized

This week Traci Reed and I teamed up again to bring you the next kit in our A Happy Family Series. For June we thought what better way to welcome the summer than with a kit all about water!  All spring, my kids wait for the sun, and when it is even a little sunny they come home from school asking “is it a water day??”  Usually, it is like 68 degrees out and I have to tell them no, but this kit is all about those precious days when the summer heat finally hits us!


Water guns, sprinklers, swimsuits – so much water fun in one kit! You will love it! Check out A Happy Family: Water Days in the store for the full description and and element list out in the in my Shoppe at SSD.

Also with this kit we have a super dooper fun set of coordinating journal cards:


These are great for pocket scrapbooking, or can be a really fun addition to a traditional layout! You can find A Happy Family: Water Days Cards in the Shoppe too.

Now a little inspiration:


Like always, you can pick up either of these two goodies for 20% today and Saturday so don’t miss your chance to save!

It looks like it IS “water day” warm around here! Hope you all have a sunny weekend to enjoy as well!
