Final Notice - Store Closing Sale - 50% Off

Hi Everyone! Well, the time has finally's definitely with mixed emotions that I leave digital scrapbook designing. Some people have asked if I'm leaving for good, or I might come back at some point, so I thought I'd answer that here. I do not have any plans for a timeline of designing again at the moment. It is possible that during the next year, I will reopen my personal store or an Etsy store to sell my existing products and a new release if inspiration hits, but I don't have firm plans for that. It's possible that I will miss it so much that that in a year, you will see me start to sell again. It's possible that I will find new things to pursue (I already have some ideas), and I will never come back to designing. At the moment I see this as a permanent retirement, but I will never say never! So there's where I am at in my journey.

I do want to thank all of you. Those who read my blog, subscribe to my newsletter, visit my facebook page, buy my products and scrap your lives and loved ones with those products. I am honored over the past almost 7 years, to have been part of keeping your family's memories. I truly love seeing all the pages around digiland that are made with my products.

The Scrap Orchard Store will be closing at 11 PM EST tomorrow, 12/31/15 and my store with it. So if you have any last minute items on your wishlist, now is the time to grab them before they are gone. You will have access to download for at least another week, but please get those purchases download as soon as possible. Everything is 50% Off through store closing!

And don't forget about the New Beginnings Entire Collection Deal. Get every New Beginnings Product in my store (35 products) for only $35! That is only $1 each! That includes the starter kit and add-ons, the monthly kits and pocket cards, and additional add-ons. If it says New Beginnings in the name, it is included!
So long for now, and I hope to see you around!

Retirement Sale - 50% Off + New Beginnings December

As some of you may have already heard, Scrap Orchard will be closing on Jan. 1st. After much thought, I have come to the difficult decision that it is time to hang up my designer hat and close this chapter of my life. I will be Retiring. My Entire Store will be on sale for at least 50% Off through the store closing.  I am excited to take on some new things in life and I will see you all around!

But until the store closes. I have a few more brand new things for you. First, I have New Beginnings: December for you. This rounds up the New Beginnings Collection. So in addition to the December Kit and Pocket Cards, I have a Freebie Round Up Product that includes most of the New Beginnings Freebies I have offered (including exclusive Newsletter Freebies) in case you missed some of them and want them to round your collection. Don't have it all? There are now 35 products in the New Beginnings Collection. I have added a product that lets you purchase the Entire New Beginnings Collection for $35 - that is only $1 per product! The product will generate a coupon code for you to grab the products in the collection that you want. Even if you already own a few of the pieces, it's a great deal. This collection will help you scrap coordinated albums for years to come! 

I hope that you all have a blessed Holiday Season. I will have my Winter Candyland Freebies for you next week as mini and the solid papers that were in my newsletter in case you missed them.

*NEW* Burlap Alpha

Happy Friday Everyone! Fall is officially here. Our morning have been cool but we're still getting temps in the upper 70's or low 80's so our weather here in the mid-west has been just perfect.

Each set also offers the upper case letters with and without the burlap flower embellishment. These alphas are the perfect finishing touch for a LO with any digital scrapbooking kit. You can get them on sale this week for 20% Off in my Scrap Orchard Store. 

Do you love these sample LOs? CT Alena paired the Burlap Alphas with my Family Photos Kit for the top LO. Scrap Orchard CT Cindi paired the Alphas with my Fall Beauty Kit for the second LO. You can find them both in my Scrap Orchard Store!
