Freebie Friday – 26th August

Almost time for the weekend and I’m looking forward to this one – with our house now sold it means we don’t have to do a top-to-bottom scrub of the inside (and let’s not forget the weeding and mowing in the garden!) Hallelujah! That means a couple of lazy sleep-ins, some relaxation and on Sunday we get to catch up with some friends for a lovely lunch in the Swan Valley.

This weeks Freebie Friday is a sheet of 8.5×11″ paper in a super versatile black and white polka dot pattern taken from my A4 Coral Crush paper pack. (Which is 50% off this week!)

The Monday Special – 22nd August

Hi there! You may have noticed that I forgot to do last weeks Friday Freebie. Well, I didn’t actually forgot, I simply ran out of time. Oops.

That would be because last Friday EVERYTHING happened!

Firstly, an offer was made on our house which is currently for sale. It was a little less than we’d hoped for, but we’ve accepted it as we were able to negotiate a long settlement time – this means our new home, which is currently being built, will (fingers crossed!) be finished a week or two before we have to move out of here. We’re grateful to the buyers as they could easily have forced our hand and made us move out sooner (thus, making us have to move house twice in the space of a month or two – not ideal for someone pregnant.)

Secondly, I had my 19 week anatomy scan. I must admit, I was really scared about it. I have a dodgy gene which meant baby has a higher than normal risk of developing a neural tube defect, so I spent most of Thursday and Friday in a highly strung state. But the scan came back perfect – everything looks very normal and the only comment the radiographer and supervising doctor had was baby looks like it might be quite tall (it clearly takes after its father!) We decided not to find out the gender – I feel like it’s a girl but when I talk about the baby, I often refer to “him” so my brain is clearly a tad confused.

Anyway, so Friday disappeared in a flurry of scans and paperwork at the real estate agents office and Freebie Friday just got shunted out of the way!

Nonetheless, it is time for the Monday Special. This week I’m offering another A4 pack (8.5″ x 11″) at 50% off.

Coral Crush is a 10 page pack full of lovely coral and bold black with hints of grey and green. It’s normally priced at $5.00* but is now $2.50* and only available in my Etsy store. This 50% offer will expire on the 29th of August.

Don’t forget that I’m in Western Australia so if you live on the other side of the globe, don’t leave your purchase until the last minute as the special could disappear Sunday night in your corner of the world.

*All prices in Australian dollars.

A4 Has Arrived!

Yes, you read that correctly – my store is now stocked with US sized A4 digital scrapbooking paper!

There are currently 45 packs available (that’s 450 individual papers!) with more being added every week. Whether you want basic polka dots or stripes, chevron, florals, dinosaurs, owls or something a little more masculine then there’s a pack to suit your craft project – whether that’s digital scrapbooking or printing the papers for use in card-making (or something else equally messy and fun.)

I’ve been feeling experimental lately (perhaps the hot weather has finally addled my brain?) so I’ve experimented with different colours, different colour combinations and introduced some new patterns for my A4 collection.

(And speaking of experimental, my March Pixel Scrapper blog train – not yet released – is DEFINITELY experimental. So experimental I’m actually a little afraid of releasing it!)

Want to see some of my favourite brand new A4 packs? Here they are:

EtsyPreviewA4_SunshineRomance    EtsyPreviewA4_CoralCrush

EtsyPreviewA4_MyGuyValentine    EtsyPreviewA4_OwlCalledSunny

EtsyPreviewA4_ScandinavianWonder    EtsyPreviewA4_VintageBoudoir

I think Scandinavian Wonder is my current favourite (even though it’s wrong to have favourites when referring to children.) 😉

To celebrate my new collection, I’m giving away this gorgeous pack called Dreamland. This freebie will be available only until March 25th.
