It's Here!!!!

  Finally, I can say it, Let the countdown begin!!!

This is the 6th year of sharing holiday memories with you, and I definitely can't wait for the memories that will surely come from this year. So many wonderful friendships have been found through this event, and I hope that this year is no different. 

This month, I want to give back to you. As a thank you from both me and my family for all the support through this amazing craft throughout the past year. (Besides, who says kids are the only ones that get to have all the fun with the holiday countdowns?) 

Each day I will be bringing you a brand new gift, a surprise that will be available to download for 24 hours (The time frame for the matching day in December per EST)
Each night at midnight EST, a new gift will go up, and the prior day's gift will be revealed. 
The entire month will bring you a mix of kits, alphas, templates, projects and more. 
My hope is that by the end of the event, you will have a wonderful new scrap stash to bring in the new year with. AND hopefully help you create some wonderful holiday gifts as well. 
I will also be posting several tutorials throughout the event this year, for quick and easy gifts and scrapbooking tips.  Tomorrow, not only will I have a new gift for you, but I will also show you how to create an album similar to this one: 



But let's get started with the countdown shall we?
With 1 Day down and only 24 more to go: 
~*~Sorry, this gift has been open~*~


Please note this download will remain valid for 24 hours.
 Until December 1st 11:59 pm EST
 After that point, it will be revealed, placed in the shop and a new gift will be given. 

To those new and old alike, welcome to the Sweet Digi Scraps Advent and 12 days event. I hope you enjoy the gifts this year. 
 Thank you all so much for your support and friendship throughout the past year!!
Much Love and Hugs!

Mark your Calendars, and a Rewind!

Saturday marks a huge celebration time for me, and I couldn't be more excited about it this year. December is the month where I give back to you, as a thank you for all your support, patronage and memories shared throughout the past year. The countdown to Christmas starts, and what better way to count down the holidays than with an advent calendar full of goodies. 

To those that are new to the holiday events , Welcome! I am so glad to have you joining in the festivities this year! And to those that are rejoining from year's prior- I hope that this year is just as much fun, if not more so, than the previous years. 

This marks year 6! I can't believe I am actually typing that out- time surely flies. I have been busy preparing kits, templates, alphas and even added holiday tutorials for this year's event. (Today and tomorrow are actually taping days for me) 

For those that are new, or need a little refresher- Here is what you can expect: 
Each day a new gift will go up at midnight EST starting on the 1st. 
 The gift will remain a secret and "wrapped" because, to me that is one of the best part's of getting a gift- The surprise behind it. Each gift will remain available for 24 hours ONLY (unless there is a problem on my end, or the internet - and the exception of Christmas Eve, Day and Day after) They will be available on the countdown days they coordinate with. After the time is up on each gift, it will be revealed and placed into the shop for just $1 for the remainder of the events. 

The items will NOT all be holiday related. My goal is to give you a scrap supply stash of items you can use all year long- and for just about everything you can think of. 
 
Throughout the event, I will also be sharing some of my favorite holiday tricks, gifts, deals and more. 

To kick off the countdown - TO the countdown :) I have a special Cyber Monday offer for anyone that missed out on some of the gifts in the past. I have bundled up 15 of the past event gifts together (over a $60 value) for just $5 dollars for this week.



So mark your calendars, it all starts December 1st!
Much Love

Happy Thanksgiving!

Amidst all the crazy shopping, cooking and traveling that many of us are doing this weekend- I hope that you create memories that will last forever together.Under all the glitz, glamour and materials- this weekend is all about being thankful. For being with friends and family and celebrating togetherness.

I am very thankful for those that I have in my life, that I can share the holidays with. I am thankful for a wonderful "digi" family as well, that never ceases to amaze me. I am also very thankful for this craft and for you. For allowing me to share my art with you and be a part of your memory keeping. For sharing your photos and memories with me. For supporting me, sharing laughs, tears and our own memories that we have made together. 
 

I hope that everyone has a very safe and happy holiday with friends and family. Thank you for an amazing 5 years, here's to many more to come!



Much Love and Hugs!

A New Collab and Chick Blitz Time!

It's here! The busiest shopping time of the year. Everywhere you go for the next couple days,  you are going to face insane crowds, big deals and if you are in on the shopping action.....very little sleep :) Mainly for crafters though, this begins the craziest time of the year on making projects for holiday gifts, catching up on our yearly scrapbooks and making cards for friends and family.

The best part of it, for me anyways, is that it starts a wonderful time of year were it seems like magic. People seem kinder, smiles are found more often and the scenery is a whole lot prettier. It also helps that it means Advent and 12 days are just around the corner too ;)

This weekend, I am kicking off the holidays with the Chick Blitz over at The Digichick. There are 16 Sweet Digi Scraps products all marked for just $1 from now until Monday, the 26th. I have included 2 brand NEW designs, as well as some of my favorite past Advent and 12 days items in case you missed them during the events in the past years. 

~*~Brand New~*~




~*~Re-released Advent and 12 days items~*~




 You can also see more of the Chick Blitz items I have marked for just $1 by going here


While over at the shoppe- be sure to check out the newest collab with the amazing Etc by Danyale! We came together for something a little more masculine this time go round and I am just in love with it!





 


 

 Much Love and Happy Scrapping!

It's almost that time!

Even though things have seemed a bit quiet lately, they have been anything but. It's that time of the year to get busy with holiday crafts and gifts, and I have been doing just that. Yesterday Sweet Digi Scraps took the plunge over to the paper realm and you will be seeing a lot more hybrid and paper craft gifts and ideas coming your way, as well as the opportunity to pick up your favorite Sweet Digi Scraps designs in paper kit form. 

I want to thank everyone that came and supported me at the craft bazaar yesterday, and I truly hope that you and your loved ones enjoy the scrapbooks full of memories! If anyone is wishing for custom albums of any size and type (both digital/paper) feel free to use the contact me button listed above and I would be more than happy to create one for you. The deadlines to place orders are November 30th for digital albums and December 16th for paper albums to ensure Christmas deliveries. 

Here is a peek at one of the tag pop up and paper bag albums I created, and can be made custom for you: 
*This uses the kit "Photoshoot" *
 
With all that news however, it is just a start to yet another wonderful holiday season here.  We are fastly approaching the 6th annual advent and 12 days event. I can't believe it has been that long, and I am truly thankful for all of you that have been sharing your memories with me and allowing me to be part of your memory keeping. Be ready for daily visits to the blog here, and clear some space on your hard drive.....this year is better than ever!!! 37 full days of treats coming your way, you really don't want to miss it. 

I will be back tomorrow with a new tutorial, introduce more of the fabulous Creative Sweeties- And give a little teaser of what to expect next month as we count down to the holidays together. 

For those that have followed me musically- here a little something to get you in the holiday spirit


Much Love!
