True North Scraps FROSTY FLAKES - daily download at TNS FB page

TNS Frosty Flakes Daily Download

You can start collecting this very adorable winter kit called Frosty Flakes tonight. From December 1st to 24th you can pick up a piece of this kit each day on True North Scraps Facebook page. You can find it under the exclusive tab but it will only be available for 1 day and until 11 pm CST.

But I understand if you don't have the patience to wait that long to collect all the pieces, so it will be available to purchase in TNS SNP store.

It's filled with an adorable snowmen, cute snowflakes and some playful penguins are the frosty stars of this winter kit. The fun continues with the colour palette Dawna used. You will be able to match papers to snowsuit and mitten colours to make your pages attention-grabbing. There are 24 papers and 65 elements (some recoloured for your convenience), as well as a full alpha included in this kit. Such a cute kit!!

Here's a few layouts from the North Stars.

Gorgeous Right!

True North Scraps LIVE LAUGH LOVE NOVEMBER in stores today

Live Laugh Love: November 

The second kit in this series, Live Laugh Love: November completes the rainbow  started in October. Where October's kit was in the rich warm colors of autumn, November's kit is cooler and more appropriate to the weather November brings. There are 24 papers and 45 elements (some recolored) made to complement the October kit. True North Scraps  intentionally repeated and recolored a few elements so  if you purchase both kits, you will have a mega kit that is complete enough to make an entire photobook. TNS wanted you to be able to keep some consistency throughout your book by having the same ribbon or the same button or frame but in a different color.

Now let's see The North Stars gorgeous layouts!

Lastly here are a few freebies using Live Laugh Love: November from the North Stars;

Here's what the newsletter subscriber CT Kandi made for you. To subscribe click here.

Happy shopping!

(I don't have a layout for this kit - it was released the week that I was promoted to Lead Promo girl for True Notth Scraps, and I spent a couple of weeks doing intensive promotion for her, and didn't have time to do a layout! I'm trying to fix that time issue!)

Here's a layout that I created using a photo of my great grandparents, Otto and Katherine Mollenkopf.  I never knew my great grandfather, who passed away long before I was born, but I did have the priviledge of knowing my great grandmother Katherine until I was 9 years old (She passed away in 1959)  She was a GRAND lady!  My layout features True North Scraps SUNDAY AFTERNOON and a template from Southern Serenity Designs HIT ME BABY Vol 1.  (available at The Digi Chick)

I have another wordart freebie today - a quote about Gratitude!  I don't know where I found the quote, or if I altered it!  I made this wordart back in 2011 for a challenge at a Forum that is now gone (and I miss it!)  It's been so long I can't even remember the font that I used.  I tried checking but there are SO many fonts on my computer, that I gave up before I got to the letter C. (LOL)

Here is the wordart in use on a layout

Made by me - background, page frame, photo frame and mat, sunflower.
Other flowers and foliage in the cluster by PattyB Scraps BOUNTIFUL HARVEST
(Shhh! It's a secret ... that frame cluster will be a freebie on 11.29.2013)

SUPER SATURDAY SALE November 16, 2013

This week True North Scraps is putting these great kits into the Super Saturday Sale at Scraps N Pieces. At these prices ($2 EACH)  you don't want to miss them!

I checked my archive and found quite a few layouts that I did with this kit: here's one of my favorites.  This layout also features a template by 3 Li'l Monsters called PHOTO STRIPS (unfortunately, she is currently in retirement)  

From my archive:  with template True North Scraps WHICHEVER WAY THE WIND BLOWS

Here's a layout from my archive also using the same template True North Scraps WHICHEVER WAY THE WIND BLOWS.  This time I used only ONE photo and clipped it to all 3 of the photo blocks in the template!  I love the effect that technique achieves!
