FreeBees, News and Happy New Year!

You may have noticed that I haven’t released any new products for a few weeks. I’ve been enjoying a little break to spend time with my family over the holidays. I hope you have had a nice holiday too!!

I am currently working on a new kit that I hope to release early in the new year. I’ll have some sneak peeks for that coming up soon!

I wanted to give you a heads up about the Scrap Orchard Featured Designer FreeBees that will be available starting in January in the Scrap Orchard Newsletter. If you are not already subscribed to the Scrap Orchard Newsletter, please make sure to sign up HERE (enter your email address in the box at the top right that says “Bee in the Know”). This gorgeous collaboration kit, Enjoy.Life, will be given away for FREE in the newsletter from January through March! You can read up on the details for this kit HERE in the Scrap Orchard Forum.


My portion of this super cute collaboration kit will be available in January! Here’s a little sneak peek of what you’ll get for free from me if you are signed up for the store newsletter!


Enjoy.Life is a Scrap Orchard Mega Kit. The Scrap Orchard Megas are HUGE and super cute, and a great way to try out a new designer or two. There is a new Mega kit every month, and they are a super low price and only available for a very short time. The January Mega Kit, New Beginnings, has just been released. You can check it out HERE in the store.


I’ve been given a super cute Quick Page made with the New Beginnings January 2013 Mega to share with you!! I think it would be the perfect page for scrapping a beginning of the year photo of yourself, or maybe your new year’s resolution or your word for the year! My word for 2013 is “Simplify” and I think scrapping with a QP would fit my word perfectly! I hope that you enjoy using this!

Download the New Beginnings Quick Page HERE

If you are on Facebook, please swing by my page HERE and click the "Jan Mega Word Art FreeBee" tab at the top of my page, to jump aboard the New Beginnings Facebook Train. There are just a few stops along the way, and you’ll end up with this super cute New Beginnings Coordinating Word Art Pack when you are finished! While you are there, if you hover over the “liked” button on my page and put a check next to “Get Notifications” you will be sure never to miss another Facebook freebie!


I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!! Hope your celebration is super fun and safe!

Scrap Orchard Advent – Christmas Countdown


The Scrap Orchard Advent Event begins December 1st. This means that during December, not only will you find some of the biggest discounts of the year at Scrap Orchard, you can also collect a super cute and huge kit for FREE!

Want to know how it works? Each designer will have a 24 hour sale each day leading up to the 25th. Every day, one designer’s door on the Advent Calendar will be “opened” and the links to that designer’s portion of the collab will be provided. On that day you will also be able to see the discount that designer is offering.

Each day is a surprise, so I can’t tell you the exact day of my sale and freebie. But I will tell you a couple things about my day. I’ll be releasing a brand new kit on my sale day at the discounted price! Also, make sure to sign up for the newsletter now, because my day is coming up really soon and I don’t want you to miss it! Do you see anything on the calendar that looks like it might be from me? *wink wink*

IMPORTANT: Each designer sale and freebie is available for 24 hours only. So make sure to sign up for the Scrap Orchard newsletter so that you don’t miss any of them! If you are not signed up for the Scrap Orchard newsletter, you can sign up HERE.)

I'll have some sneak peeks of my new kit coming soon!

I also wanted to let you know that if you missed my Santa's Little Helper kit last week while it was available in the Farmer's Market, it is no longer available in the individual element and paper packs. But it is now available as a full kit. It is 20% off this week during the Fresh Fruit Sale HERE at Scrap Orchard.

Santa's Little Helper & Fifteen $1 Farmer’s Market Goodies

Just a little bit of a friendly warning, this post is very image heavy. I have so many good things to show you! I tried to limit my images to as few as possible. But if you are reading this by email, you may find that it is easier to click over and read it on my blog HERE.


It’s time for the Farmer’s Market sale for Black Friday at Scrap Orchard. There are over 400 products in the store (new and old) marked down to only $1! The sale lasts through November 26th.

I have 15 products included in the sale. Four products are brand new, and the others are products that are not new, but have not been available at Scrap Orchard until today. I have all of the product images linked for you below to give you direct access to them in the store.

First I want to share my newest product with you! Our family is starting the “Elf” tradition this year. I’m super excited about it and I’ve been busy finding and saving lots of inspiration for our Elf “Snowflake” to keep busy and engage in some creative Christmas mischief. I have created a new collection of products that I think are perfect for scrapping Elf photos as well as any Christmas and holiday pics that you might snap throughout the season.

Santa’s Little Helper is included in the Farmer’s Market this year in three parts. You can grab each part for only $1. Please note that after the Farmer’s Market sale is over, the Santa’s Little Helper products will be bundled into a full priced kit. So now is definitely the time to pick them up for the best savings.

I have also created a brand new add-on to my Turkey Time kit called Little Turkey. This add-on is only $1 in the Farmer’s Market right now.

I am releasing three kits that were previously available only as a part of designer collaborations. The collaborations have been recently retired. If you do not have these items from the collabs, you can now pick up just my part. Through November 26th, they are all only $1 each in the Farmer’s Market.

If you missed the Block Party products available during DSD, those are now available in my store for only $1 during the Farmer’s Market.

I have bundled several mini kit collaboration contributions into new products. If you didn’t pick those up while they were available as collabs, you can grab them now as bundled remixes. Please be sure to carefully read the product descriptions to avoid double purchases. However, at only $1, these are still a really great deal, even if you already have one part of the bundles.
