So Many Exciting Events Happening this Week (Plus Freebies)

Summer is officially behind us and autumn is creeping up fast, well at least where I live. If you are south of the equator, then you must be getting ready for spring. I absolutely love fall. There is a certain smell in the air when the leaves change and the crispness of the mornings which are so familiar. (And yes, I get a little poetic.)

We have so many things happening and I fear if you blink, you will miss an unbelievable bargain. So I will work down the list, with an overview first up:

1. GingerScraps 6th Birthday Celebration
2. 40% off Store wide
3. New Releases
4. Your Stories Go Digital Feature, with freebies
5. Winner of MixPlayWin & October guest CT
6. Preview of the next Mixology

GingerScraps 6th Birthday Celebration

We are celebrating GingerScraps 6th birthday. All the sales and events are happening right now and will go through till Thursday, September 25, 2014. All the shops, including the LissyKay shop, are 40% off. 


In addition to the sale, each designer chose up to 3 kits for the $1 Bake Sale. The LissyKay kits available for $1 are: Open Sesame, My Story Vol 4 & Behind the Mask


And the GS Designers are hosting a Facebook Hop, with my part being 2 free templates. Here is a look at the freebies you will find on my Facebook page. Once you pick them up, simply click through to the next stop on the hop.



40% Off Sale

Since I have my GingerScraps shop marked down 40% off, the LissyKay GoDigital shop has been marked down, as well. Between now and end of day Thursday, September 25, 2014, you can go on a shipping spree...or two...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

New Releases

I have two new template kits in the shop. If you buy one new release, you will get the second release free. Simply add one kit to your cart and you will receive the download links for both kits.


The Big Picture kit is a different take on the large photo page. Instead of having a photo border met up with a paper edge, strips of paper fall on top of the photo. The embellishments are designed to scatter along different parts of the photo edge, with even the title hanging over. If you love using objects on top of your photos, you will enjoy these layout designs. If you are new to putting embellishments on your photos, then this kit will help you with placement. To add some depth to the layout, paint masks have been used for the photo spots.


Pretty Little Mask is a template kit highlighting paint masks for photos and using a carefree hand on embellishment placement. Messy stitches help frame the photos with strategically placed sunbursts aiding with focal paths. This was such a fun kit for me to make.


Here are layouts from my creative team and how they beautifully interpreted the templates.

Your Stories Go Digital

Last week was the start of my two-week feature at Your Stories Go Digital. This is a talented group of scrappers who visit the Your Stories Facebook page for inspiration and to discover the variety of kits out in digi land. The layout artists there have been showcasing some of my kits. In addition, I made a kit just for this event and it is being released one template at a time as a free download. Here is a look at the whole kit you will get once you collect all four templates:

Stop by and pick up the 3 pieces currently available and pick up discount codes. There is a $3 off coupon up right now, with an even bigger one releasing the end of this week.

MixPlayWin August Winner

Thank you to those who participated in the August MixPlayWin. This is a contest that takes us about a month to complete. It is simple: scrap with one of the current Mixology kits, submit a layout before the deadline, receive a gift card for participating, then all the submitted layouts are voted on by you to fill a month-long guest spot on the LissyKay creative team.

The winner of the October guest CT spot is Amy Smart (username familyhistoryscrapper.) She had the most votes for this layout and is invited to be a part of the team starting October 1st.


Congrats Amy!


Mixology Preview

Starting on September 24th, the new Mixology kits will be released at GoDigitalScrapbooking. We will be holding a sneak peek drawing on Monday. Here is your first look at what you can expect. These kits are another set where I take a popular embellishment and make it the central piece of the page (similar to the reel master kit.) Check back on the LissyKay FB page Monday to enter to win.


There was a lot to get through this week, so thanks for reading through everything. I do hope you are able to pick up some items from your wish list or try LissyKay templates for the very first time during these great sales. Be sure to collect all the freebies!

Sparkle & Shine!

New Artsy Template BOGO

I am too excited to introduce this week's new releases because it is a look you have not yet seen from me. I have gone over to the art side to bring to you a new style of templates which make artsy layouts a cinch to create. And if you pick up one of the kits now, you will get the second release free. Two amazingly detailed kits for only $3.20.

Feeling Artsy

I had a blast making Feeling Artsy. I just got the brushes going and went to town. Combined with the doodle frames I designed, this kit is a fun way to add textures to your papers. Simply clip paper to each paint mask and you will have a unique page. You can also recolor or clip papers to the frame. The frames each have multiple layers so you can customize the entire frame.

Artsy Couture

Painted backgrounds are the basis for Artsy Couture. Two layers of two different paint styles have been designer for you to recolor or clip paper to for an instant artsy look. Custom doodle frames are in multiple layers so you can make sure they match the kit you are using.
