Heritage Scraps Opening with Stormy Release

It seems this won't be a surprise to many people judging from the comments left in the TNS blog contest this week.   Everybody who thought that TNS was opening a new store was right!

I am very happy to announce that in addition to Scraps N Pieces, you can now buy TNS products at Heritage Scrap.

I think this calls for a celebration, don't you?

Between designing and getting ready to open the new store, Dawna has been very busy the last 2 weeks!  But not too busy to make a couple new releases.  I'll tell you about one now, and I'll tell you about the other one in a couple days.

Stormy is releasing at Heritage Scrap on February 28.  It is a beautiful kit that you can scrap those amazing storm cloud formation photos that we all take.  Do you have some photos of the kids splashing in puddles after the rain?  This kit is so versatile, it will even work for sad LOs.  
There are 30 elements and 12 papers in the very dramatic colour palette that Dawna chose to use.  I think it's so pretty, don't you?  It will be in the store for $5.00, but with that grand opening sale, it will only cost $3.00!

Dawna wasn't the only busy one at True North Scraps.  The North Stars have been working on some amazing LOs to show you:

This is the one I made:

Be sure to stop at Dawna's blogKandi's blog and Kirsty's blog and pick up their gift for you!

Wendy Tunison Designs has collaborated with Busy Crafting Mommy Designs to bring you a beautiful new set of kits called Arabesque.  Dancing, twirling, feeling the music in your soul.  There is nothing more beautiful than losing yourself in the music and letting it take you wherever it pleases.  Whether it's classical ballet, jazz, tap or any other form of dance, the beautifully blended colors of this kit will enable you to scrap it all.  The soft lace and tulle and sparkle of the sequins will have you surrounding your photos with the perfect finishing touches to really bring the feel of the dressing room to your layouts.  You'll hear the rustle of the tutus and feel the excitement of opening night as you play with the beautiful ellies.  With pieces so versatile you'll be able to use this kit over and over again for dance, heritage and all things feminine.  Don't worry, they didn't leave out the boys.  You'll find some fun masculine pieces as well so you can scrap their beautiful talent too!

Whichever Way the Wind Blows

Are you a template fan?   There are so many ways to use a template and make it your own, and that's what I had in mind with this set.  You can follow them exactly or dress them up or down, flip, flop, rotate, whatever you fancy.  That has a little to do with the name of this template pack

Whichever Way the Wind Blows

I used them when I made a double page LO for ScaryTales 2: Laissez les bon temps rouler

My North Stars were busy trying out the templates

Don't all these LOs look great?  You can visit their blogs for a closer look at their work.

The templates are CT friendly, and come in PSD, TIF, and PNG formats.  From February 21 - 24, they will be on sale for 30% off, then they will go to their normal price of $3.50.  Grab 'em this weekend while they are really cheap!

I have a question to ask and one of the people who answers it will be chosen randomly to win a one month guest CT term (March 1 - 31) as a North Star!

My question is:  What do you think is my really HUGE news is?   I can't wait to spill the beans, and it's not long before I will, but in the meantime I thought it'd be fun to see what people think.  I can't really give you a clue without completely giving it away, and since it doesn't matter if your answer is right or not for you to win, I thought I'd just leave it wide open and see what people come up with!  Just leave a comment and a way for me to contact you (remember Anonymous can not win) and I'll randomly select a winner Tuesday February 26 at 7 am Central time.  I have a little sneak peek of one of the kits being released in March to encourage you to enter this contest:

Here's a closer look at the page I made using one of these FANTASTIC templates:

Belle Templates & Mask Frames

"For who could ever learn to love a beast?"

That's the last line of the opening narration in the movie Beauty & the Beast. And we all know who fell in love with the beast...Belle did. And for February, Belle is the Princess of the Month. Mommy Made This and Memories by Digital Design are back with a new kit and a new template pack...just for you. Check out the awesome shades of yellow, touches of red and purple and blue. So pretty. Even Cogsworth & Lumiere make an appearance.

Grab Memories by Digital Design's template pack at 50% off for one week. When she thought of Belle, she thought of books, which turned into block-style templates.

Check out what I made...

Need more inspiration? Here's what her CT created using these templates:

Here's something else for you? Sports Mask Frames add a fun little something to your athletic layouts. Clip a paper to it or change the color to fit your page. If you were unable to make it to the Speed Scrap Monday hosted by Tammy (Memories by Digital Design), you missed out on getting these for free. But no worries...they're on sale starting tomorrow, at 50% off. She threw in a little extra one too, the LOVE mask frame that was offered as a freebie in the Valentine's Day edition of the store newsletter.

Check out what I made...
