2 More Days to DSD

I thought I would show you a preview or two of some of the mini-kits I made for DSD. Are you all as excited about it as I am? This is my first one as a designer and the amount of work going on behind the scenes is amazing!

The first two are for the DST Treasure Hunt. One will be at Pretty Scrappy the other at Divine Digital. I love the colors in this kit! I am going to be hunting all day to get this huge collab.

The next one is for a kit being given away at SFS. (More details soon)

I will be posting lots of details of events happening at my stores on Friday. I am also planning a hunt of my own with 6 picture clues. If you find them all you will have the code for a $7.00 gift card for my kits.

Today's freebie is a mix of pages from a few different kits. Tomorrow I will have a few more pages and if I have time I believe I have a mini-kit somewhere. Then Friday I have an add-on and a whole set of QP's my team did with 2 Cute 2 Spook.

3 More Days to DSD

It's still yesterday somewhere right? I will do another post today, but I just skipped over this yesterday and I wanted to get it up for you.

2 Cute 2 Spook is still on sale at Pretty Scrappy and SFS until Monday so you better go grab it while its only 3.00. It is also up at Scraphead, but their Spooktacular sale is overriding mine so it is not 3.00.

Today's freebie matches the Featured Kit of the Month at Scraphead which happens to be my Summer Vacation kit. Remember it will only be 2.00 for 3 more days.

Make sure you come back later on today for more freebies :)

4 More Days to DSD

Its been a long but rewarding day! I finally got my store up at Scrappin FreeStyle :) I did several mini-kits for DSD and well I can't tell you about that yet *wink*.

So have you all heard the we are closing, wait no we aren't drama at 3Scrapateers? I'm kinda just sitting in the back of the room listening but not really getting in the drama part. The only thing I know was last week I was told we were closing and this week we are not. New owners possibly I have no idea I just thought I would bring it up to explain why I currently am not adding kits there. It would be a real pain to upload more if I won't have a position there anymore.

I had a little trouble getting my new kit up at Scraphead today, but since it is time sensitive I will go ahead and announce it. You can still get it at Pretty Scrappy and SFS. Its only 3.00 for this week only too :) If you really want it from Scraphead you will have to wait until tomorrow.

Give me a drum roll please (j/k) Isn't this kit the cutest? Now I am wishing I did some extra previews to show you some of the cool stuff in this kit. A lot of the elements are leather and the doodled webs and things (mostly made with the wonderful Princess Lala's doodles) are really neat. Can still say neat or is that a no no word? LOL

Stay tuned for some Halloween freebies that match this kit on the 31st.

While I was doing today's freebie I realized I never quite unveiled my last bag to you. It had a frame collection and a brown felt alpha that you can find in all my stores but this was the big kit in it.

I did this kit because my son came home last year with a picture of himself in a space suit. I just had to scrap it :) I also made my first hybrid album with this kit. I thought it turned out well.

You can get this kit or the album at any of my stores.

Ok so guess you want another freebie? Well I promised so here you go. Special thanks to my Creative Babes for making these.

What A Week

Since Saturday everything has just been nuts around here. Saturday afternoon my husband washed the dogs and put Sergeant's Gold flea treatment on them. Hours later they are just pouring drool, shaking, scratching, the list goes on and on. Apparently 1,000's of dogs are affected by some poison in the treatment and in many cases it has lead to death. By then end of the night my poor Lhasa lost most of the use in her back legs. I am still really upset that this product is still on Walmart's shelves, but my dogs got lucky. 4 days later they are mostly back to normal so I finally am getting a chance to post. :)

For the last month or so I have been organizing a charity kit for my dear friend and fellow digi-scrapper. As most of you know Hurricane Ike did some major distruction including the area where Casey (she's the owner of Pretty Scrappy) lives. A large group of designers got together to make a kit in her honor to help her recover from the loss she suffered during the hurricane. This wonderful kit is called New Beginnings. It works perfect for so many layouts new baby, new home, starting over it goes on and on. The kit has 136 Papers, 2 Alphas and 236 Elements for a whopping total of 753 MB ! Here are some previews

Wow that was a lot of previews ! It took me several hours to do those so I had to show off my hard work :)

Speaking of hard work I have added a slideshow to the right column of my blog to show of the hard work my Creative Babes have done. I'm going to add it here too.

Ok one last thing and I am finished for the day's post.

Most of you, my fellow digi-scrappers, know that DSD is only about a week away. I know all the stores I am in are preparing lots of fun things for you and I have something planned too. So to help us all count down the days to DSD check in here at my blog every day for a freebie or two. During the count down you will get tons of QP's, Brag Book Pages and maybe even a mini-kit or two :) So be sure to come back every day for you free gifts!

Sunset Brag Book Blog Train

Ok so my blogging skills have taken a dive. My only post this month have been blog trains, but hey at least its freebies. :) I promise to do better starting tomorrow.

Casey is back holding the reins at Pretty Scrappy and I have a few wonderful helpers (thank you girls) so maybe I can spare some time to post and make some kits. Speaking of Casey watch out tomorrow for a charity collab in her honor.

So the Pretty Scrappy girls have done it again bigger and better than ever. This new collab is absolutely beautiful and can be used in so many ways. (I used it for a Halloween page) Plus we have an add on it was so huge it wouldn't all fit in one kit so we had to do another large kit to add to it.

Here are the previews

And if you spend 25.00 in the store you get this 44 page QP album.

One more thing before I send you off to the other blogs. We are having two calls at Pretty Scrappy.

One is for the QP team you can choose only collabs or the whole store. You get the kits free and you can make freebies for your blog. To apply please send an email here (creationsbyrachael make sure to take out the space) with a little about you and a link to your best gallery.
