This is the beginning of a new month and that means new challenges and new Bits N Pieces kits at Scraps N Pieces.

I'll start with the challenge news.  This month True North Scraps is hosting the "Use It All" Challenge. I've provided a free mini kit and the challenge is to use everything in it in a layout.

You get bonus points if you use the coordinating full-sized kit, Move It Move It in that layout.  It is on sale for 50% off for the entire month of August.

On to the next business... Bits N Pieces.  The best thing about Bits N Pieces for you is that everything is only $1 for the first week of the month!!  This is my first time participating in the Bits N Pieces collaboration.  Let me tell you, I picked a great month to start because everybody did such a beautiful job with the theme and the palette.  This is my part:

One of the designers at SNP, Noelle, put together a slide show to showcase how beautiful these kits are:

Remember though, Bits N Pieces parts are only $1 each for the first week of August.  Don't miss your chance to get a steal of a deal on these beautiful coordinating kits.

The North Stars have been working very hard and you should see the beautiful LOs they made. In fact, why don't I show you?

Have a great day!

Two Hearts

It's Bits N' Pieces time at SNP and Wendy Tunison Designs has a beautiful new set of minis for you as well as a fantastic new template set!  You can pick up any of these 6 minis for just $1.00 during the first week of August.  After that, she'll be bundling this all up into a full size kit at an even higher price so grab them while you can at the special price!
Check out what our CT made with these minis.  They are so talented!

Here's a closer look at my layouts.

This one I used Wendy's Temptations Volume 3.

Wendy also has a new template set for you as part of the Bits N' Pieces promotion so it will be $1.00 for the first week of August as well!  Whoot! She has been working her way back through her Templates and adding PSD files to them and making them CU okay too!  So keep an eye on the store for those changes!
Our CT worked their magic with this set too...

Here's the two layouts I did using Wendy's Temptations Volume 5. The first one I used Family Ties by Queen Wild Scraps.

This one I used Connections by True North Scraps.

Its a new month and new goodies are ready for you from the SNP Design Team! This month the Designers at SNP came up with a fun new kit, called "Locker Talk" You can pick up the full kit for $7.99, the QPs for $5.99, or for some bonus savings, pick it all up with the Bundle option for only $10.99
We have a new challenge at Scraps N Pieces called the Collab Kit Challenge!  Use the August Collab kit to create a layout that corresponds with the theme of the collab.  Check it out here   This challenge will be worth double points! For participating in the current month's challenge, you will receive a coupon for $1 off next months collab kit as well.
They also have a brand new designer CU Grab Bag this month full of Scatters and Swirls. Look at the full reveal below. You can grab this for 25% off if you hurry and get it the first week.
Here is a peek at the rest of the Bits N Pieces kits also in the store this week. Remember they are only $1 each the first week. You can mix and match the pieces you would like to put together your own kit. The theme this month was Friendship.
One more thing..............the Scraps N Pieces Fall Retreat is scheduled and we already have a great group signed up.  It is in Vegas (Henderson) and it is going to be so much fun!  We can't wait to join up with some old friends and meet some brand new ones.  You won't want to miss it and it is affordable to boot!
And one last thing before I go, a lot of you have been asking Wendy for a speed scrap schedule for her personal speed scraps so she thought she'd make you up a fun little visual reminder for the month of August!  She's included her facebook speed scraps as well as the one she'll be hosting at SNP this month.
Have a great day!
