$1.00 Pixels and a Freebie

Happy Tuesday Scrappers! Can you believe that it is December 29, 2009? Only a few more days left and 2009 will be a year of the past. 2009 was a great year for myself and my family but I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us. I have lots of goals and lots of wishes. It's almost time to start reaching those goals and start wishing upon those stars.

2010 is a time for new beginnings and Bella Gypsy has a few new kits to start 2010 off on the right foot.
A Fresh Start and Martinis at Midnight are perfect for scrapping those new year's resolutions and ringing in the new year in style! If you missed them yesterday at ES, you can pick them up today at Gotta Pixel for only $1! New release Tuesday wouldn't be complete without a set of templates. Don't forget to pick up the latest Sketchology to help you Scrap More! There is also a new CU Alpha Template that was released today as well. I absolutely love the Bella Gypsy Alpha Templates!!! Go check out Make it Snappy!

It's Tuesday and that means I have a little freebie for you as well! I hope you like this template! You can click on the preview or click

Happy New Year and Happy Scrapping! See you in 2010!

A Farewell to 2009 and a Freebie, too!

I can barely believe we have reached the end of the year already! It's been a very busy year for our family. Lots of changes, good ones,mostly! I said goodbye to a lot of baby things this year, as we have welcomed our last little ones into the family, and they have somehow managed to turn one already!
And speaking of good things coming to an end, a heads up...
Elemental Scraps is having a BIG end-of-year clearance sale. They have discounted over 125 items to $1. Grab them while you can.
Oh, and speaking of dollar deals... even more good news for you!
Bella Gypsy has some beautiful goodies to help you scrap in the New Year!
This jewel is just what you need to scrap your countdown to 2010, and it's Dollar Day, so grab it!

Martinis at Midnight

And if you are looking for a Fresh Start this New Year, grab their new and fresh kit:

Hello Bella Fans! Time for a Peek!

Hello! Candi here again for another fun Sunday full of awesome Bella Gypsy Sneak Peeks! This week we have two fabulous peeks for you to admire!! :)

Wow, what a whirlwind week it has been! Another Christmas is behind us and now we have the New Year to look forward to! I cannot believe 2010 is upon us. I have been spending most of my days trying to decide if I will say, "Twenty-Ten" or "Two Thousand Ten." What do you think? haha! Kidding. I have found out an interesting bit of news this past week. Apparently there is a big debate going on as to whether the decade comes to an end as of Dec 31, 2009 or Dec 31, 2010. I did visit the almighty Wiki and read that the decade supposedly comes to an end next year vs. this year. Things that make you go, "Hmmmm?"

Okay, so it seems as though I have way too much time on my hands...so I do declare that this year I vow to do more scrapping of the treasured memories that stay near and dear to my hard drive! Yes, I admit, I am a digital kit collector! Each time I go to scrap a page, I feel like it's not turning out as I initially envisioned. So I have decided that my resolution for the upcoming year is to do more scrapping and be proud of what I make rather than get frustrated with the end result. Now, I do need to warn you...I have been known to break resolutions. For example, last year I resolved to never make New Years resolutions ever again. And...well here I am making resolutions. So, we'll see how it goes!

I hope that all of you have a fabulous year in store for you! I hope that you're able to scrap all of your wonderful photos! Please do not hesitate to share your pages here at the Bella Gypsy blog! Leave a comment w/ your link! We would really enjoy visiting your gallery to leave you lots of love!

On to our Sneak Peeks! First up is a beautiful kit that is fun and "fresh!" Doesn't it look Awesome!?

Next up is a fun kit that will help you jumpstart your party! You'll be raising the roof with this little number! Oh yea! Bella Gypsy has done it again! They're so unbelievably talented and they never run out of fresh and fun ideas for their designs!

That's all I have for now, folks! I will see you next Sunday! Oh! Before I go, I thought that I might metion the Bella Gypsy Fan Page at Facebook! If you're not a fan, hop on over to facebook and show these girls how much you love them!
Warm regards,

Hello Scrappers!

I can't believe it is December 22...that means only three more days until the man in the red suit makes his visit! I am super excited this year. Our boys are at the age where they are going to be so much fun. Our 3 year old loves counting down how many more days until Santa comes and our 2 year old looks forward to getting that piece of candy in the evening!! I look forward to continuing our Christmas traditions with the boys this year and for years to come. As for preparing, we are almost done shopping in our house...just a few small things to get and everything so far is wrapped and ready to go!

Ok, back to scrapping news!! See, I am as bad as my boys...I get so excited about the thought of Christmas! Well, there is something else to be excited about. It's $1.00 Pixels at Gotta Pixel today so you can pick up some scrumptious goodies in the Bella Gypsy store! Go check them out!

These kits were released yesterday at Elemental Scraps and are being released today at Gotta Pixel. Christmas Past and One More Sleep are both $1.00 each today at GP. You can also pick up their coordinating templates for a $1.00 too.

Friday's Freebie!

Thank goodness it's Friday! Hi scrappers, Lynn here, glad to see the end of the week! My kidlets have wrapped up at school for 2009, so it's going to be a whirlwind from here until Christmas!

We haven't seen any snow yet, but it's bitter cold today, and there was quite a bit of snow in London last night. My boys are keeping their fingers crossed that the forecast is right tonight, as they are saying some light dusting!

In the spirit of the holiday and snow, too, I've made this little freebie for  you!

If you don't have snow where you are either, I've included a version without the snowdrift, too!

Monday Again... Time for a New Release and a Freebie!

Is anyone else counting shopping days left? Hi scrappers, Lynn here, in a last minute shopping frenzy. I keep hearing, you have plenty of time from others, but I am feeling pressed to get it all done, and quick!
I spent all morning just filling in the gaps I had missed out, like stocking stuffers and the like, and can breathe now! Sure, I am bound to have forgotten something, of course!
But, for the moment, I feel relaxed, and caught up. It's not easy when you have 4 kiddies to make sure you've been fair with gifts, really, it's hard work, this shopping malarky!

Ahh, well, time to take a break, grab a cuppa and have a look through the gorgeous stuff Bella Gypsy are bringing to you this week!

Talk about a sweet collection! This kit is great for all those holiday baking snaps you are bound to have, and can be used ALL YEAR ROUND for any baking/cooking pages, ohhh, or projects... hmmm, that's got me thinking!

Yay...It's Sneak Peek Sunday!!!

Hello Bella Gypsy fans! Candice here again for another Sneak Peek Sunday!!!

Before I get to the "sneak peek" I wanted to ask all of you whether or not you're ready for the holidays!? I am more than ready! Omigosh! I love this time of year! I love Christmas music, I love the lights and all of the various decorations, I love the kids' excitement, and most of all I love spending time with all of the special people in my life! It's such a wonderful time of year -- in my humble opinion! I hope you'll have plenty of magical moments to scrap about! :)

Speaking of magical...I have a faaabulous peek to tease you with today! Trust me when I say that Bella Gypsy has some jolly goodness coming your way! This kit is soooo Bella Gypsy fantastical and I know you will love it!! I think I said something like "Ohhh Snap!" the first time I laid my eyes on this beauty!!! I am not quite sure what "Oh Snap!" means, but it is definitely a good thing!!

Take a look at this cuteness!!

Next I wanted to mention that Homemade Holiday will make its debut at Elemental Scraps tomorrow! Some of you may have seen this kit previously on the blog, but it's more than worth showing off again!

Isn't it just awesome!??

One last thing before I go...I wanted to mention the Bella Gypsy newsletter. Are you signed up? If not, I definitely recommend doing so! Did you know that there are freebies included in their newsletters that are not found on the blog? Yes, it's true! In fact, these freebies typically can't be found anywhere else...unless they end up in one of their shops. However, if you are subscribed to their newsletter you get them FIRST and you get them FREE! Now, I am not saying that "first and free" are among the most important things in the world, but when it comes from Bella Gypsy it is! Signing up is as easy as clicking the Newsletter Sign Up Button to the right!

Until next time...

Just a Peek!

What more could you ask for?! Hello scrappers, Lynn here, with a bunch of news!
It is so wintery here! It's not snowing, but seldom does it snow here in the Lake District on the north west coast of England.It's been raining a good number of days though, and while the sun was out today, it's been super chilly. Bone chilling, chilly!
I got a few good bundled up photos of the kids this week though, and my eldest had his school play (they were so great!) titled Christmas with the Aliens. Yes,  you read that right! It was really cute though! Still had the Nativity play neatly tucked within quite a number of humourous bits, it was really fun!
Oh, right, onto the Bella Gypsy related news!

So, tomorrow is the Gotta Grab It! event at Gotta Pixel. The girls have something totally GORGEOUS in store for you there, so don't forget to check it out. It's a great deal, at a great price, don't let it pass you by!

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to meet us back here for another peek on Sunday!
