Welcome Back

I can't believe the summer has gone so quickly!  Now the kids are back in school or heading back shortly.  Next thing I know there will be leaves all over the ground.

But back to school time is an exciting time for parents and children alike.  We all take those photos of our kids before they leave for their first day.  Then we have to scrap those photos of course!  True North Scraps has the perfect kit for that called

Welcome Back

How cute is this?  There are 48 elements and 24 papers as well as a full alpha that includes many punctuation symbols.  The children come with school uniforms in case you need them.  There is more to Welcome Back than just this kit.

Available separately is a pack of more clothes for the children!  You can personalize your children elements and make your LOs unique.

Isn't this fun?!!

Also available is a pack of solid card stocks

And finally, there is a pack of 4 quick pages in case you are finding this time of year hectic but still need those photos scrapped.

These are all very reasonably priced, and on top of that they are 30% off until Sept 6th.  And for even more savings, pick up the bundle of all 4 packs, also on sale for 30% off until Sept 6th.

The North Stars have made some fantastic LOs using this kit!

And now.... the blog hop!  The North Stars have made some wonderful brag book pages for you to collect!  You can start here with mine:

True North Scraps is Featured Designer at SNP!

I'm so excited to announce that True North Scraps is the Featured Designer at Scraps N Pieces from August 16 - 31!

This is going to be so much fun!

Turtle Scraps:  Every couple of days, early in the morning, a set of 7 instructions will be posted.  You will have until 6 am CST the following day to post your LO in the True North Scraps gallery at Scraps N Pieces.  The reason we're holding Turtle Scraps is so that my friends from  Europe, Asia and Down Under can play along too.  Chats may be held any time during the day though, so watch for the schedule that will be posted at Scraps N Pieces and on my Facebook Page.  Chats are optional events, but you never know when the RAK Fairy might show up...  Every Turtle Scrap you complete within the time limit will earn you a piece of my kit called Sunday Afternoon!  

If you can't collect the whole thing, "Sunday Afternoon" will go in all of the TNS stores on September 1st.

Bingos:  We'll be holding a few bingo games during the 2 weeks Dawna is featured designer.  You will be given a list of words to choose and you make your own bingo card.  Bingo cards must be completed and submitted one full day prior to the scheduled bingo game.  Bingo will be played during a chat.  The RAK Fairy may be attending those games!

Treasure Hunt:  On August 16th, look for an image with some easily identifiable pieces of various kits in True North Scrap's store.  PM your answers to Dawna before the end of the month and if you are correct, you will earn a 25% coupon to her store!

Group Hug:  Another super-easy way to earn valuable savings!  For every 5 comments you post in the True North Scraps gallery, you will earn 5% off a purchase in TNS SNP store.  You can collect up to a maximum 50% off!

If you participate in the Treasure Hunt and Group Hug, you can potentially earn a coupon worth 75% off one purchase of TNS products at Scraps N Pieces!  Coupons will accumulate throughout the featured designer time and one coupon for the full prize amount that you earned will be awarded by September 5, 2013.

Midnight Madness:  Every Friday night at midnight in August (Aug 16, 23, and 30th), Dawna will put her Scraps N Pieces store on sale for 24 hours for 60% off all regular priced products.

Now that I've explained all that, are you excited for August 16th to come?!!  I sure am!

Pray for Haley

For most of us, childhood days are seen as a carefree and joyous time. It's time to run, play, and hang out with friend - to grow up and find our place in the world. Unfortunately, not every child is given the same opportunities. Pray for Haley is collaboration kit made by some of the finest artists in the digital scrap-booking community to help a young girl in need. Haley was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and is missing the current school year because of her treatments. Her strong will and determination has allowed her to keep up with her school work and she looks forward to the day she can return to the classroom and her friends. The profits from Pray for Haley will be given to this courageous girl and her family to help with mounting medical costs. When the time comes to scrap all the joyous moments in the young person in your life this kit will offer you a multitude of options for beautiful scrap book pages as well as help a young girl in need.

We have split this kit up as separate pieces if you feel like you can only donate a little bit, as a Big Bundle, and for the greatest savings, we also have a Mega Bundle option to get everything.  Please click on slideshow below to go to the store and help this little girl in need.

True North Scraps at Heritage Scrap

Heat Wave

August days are usually so hot and muggy and the kids are at that stage where they are bored being out of school.  So what do you do with them?  Take them to the water park!

This kit is so refreshing just looking at the fountain and the ice pops and all the water droplets spraying around and it's in such classic summer colours.   It started out as a Bits N Pieces kit for Scraps N Pieces, but Dawna's bundled it up now and it's only $5.00.  You get 32 elements, 12 papers and an adorable teeny alpha jam-packed with uppercase, lowercase, numbers and many punctuation marks!

One lucky person who reads Dawna's blog will win this kit!  Just leave a comment about what your favourite "keep cool" summer activity is. She'll randomly choose a winner from the comments on Friday at 7:30 a.m. CST.  Make sure she has a way of contacting you if you are the winner - She can't track down "Anonymous".  Good luck!

Here's a quick clickable link to Dawna's Blog: True North Scraps
