April's Customer Spotlight

Hi, I'm Amber and I am so excited to introduce you to our April Customer Spotlight, Lizzy27! Lizzy's gallery is amazing! Please go to take a look and leave her some love, click here.

We asked Lizzy to show us her favorite Bella Gypsy layout and we love this layout also! Don't you just want to pinch those little cheeks?


We wanted to give you an opportunity to get to know Lizzy a little better so we asked her a few questions.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: I'm a SAHM to two kiddos, Nathaniel who is almost 4 and Mary Grace, almost 2. They are my inspiration for scrapping! I live in MN with my hubby Jeff. Along with scrapping, my hobbies include blogging, reading, and volunteering at Church.

Q: How long have you been scrapping?
A: I've been scrapping since 1996! I sat down with my ticket stubs, graduation programs, and pictures from high school and put them into an album. I paper scrapped right up until 2008 after my daughter was born and decided the switch to digital made a lot of sense. I'm very addicted!

Q: Do you have a favorite subject(s) to scrap?
A: I scrap mostly milestones in my kids' lives, holidays, vacations, and events. Also whatever my kids are doing at the time that I really want to document. I focus on important memories vs. everyday stuff.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Lizzy a little! Lizzy, thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us!

Ladies, keep on posting your Bella Gypsy layouts for us to see! You never know when you might have the spotlight shining on you!

$1.00 Pixels and a Freebie

Happy Tuesday Scrappers! It's Kim here on this very bright and busy Tuesday morning! My boys are finally awake and very excited to see the sun this morning...I guess that means we'll be playing outside all day long and enjoying the nice weather! They haven't been outside in a few days because it's been cold and rainy.

Did you know that today is $1.00 Pixels over at Gotta Pixel? There are some awesome goodies that hit the store today! In the $1.00 bin are two templates packs! Need a jumpstart on layouts?
Sketchology: Doesn't Sit Still and Sketchology: Couch Potato were released today at Gotta Pixel and are only $1. I took a little peek through the Bella Gypsy Store at Gotta Pixel and you may want to do the same. There are more items that are still $1.00 as well!

Bella Gypsy also put Budding in their new releases at Gotta Pixel. You can pick it up today for $3.00. Image is linked to GP store.


One last thing...the freebie! I made some word art for you that coordinates with the fabulous collab by Connie Prince and Bella Gypsy...

Things are just ducky! Ahh, well, they are today,anyway! Hi folks, Lynn here, after a terribly long and exhausting weekend. We spent it in a hotel, not for a holiday, but out of necessity... not nice. Good to be home, and things are looking up now! So there was no sneak peek yesterday, sorry about that folks, again, my fault! BUT WAIT...
I'll make it up to you if you hang on until the end of the post, promise!
In fact, I'll start right now, have a look at this absolutely fun loving stunner from Bella Gypsy and Connie Prince: 

(*All images are linked)

Totally cute, right? Well, as if that weren't enough, check out the templates, too!

And if you totally love templates and haven't seen these, they are in store now! 
(**These were part of the Free With Purchase Offer partnered with Connie Prince, so please do check to see you don't already have them!)

So, you forgive me yet? I mean, it's a totally awesome shopping bag, isn't it? Well, just to butter you up, I've made this little freebie for you! Please click the cluster frame for your download link!

Sneak Peek Sunday, ummmm....sort of!

Hello Bella Gypsy Fans!!! Candi here dropping by to let you know that Bella Gypsy has some super-awesome stuff coming your way this week!!!! They have a phenomenal collaboration with Connie Prince! You've seen their collabs before, so you should know it'll be nothing short of faaaaabulous! They will also have some of their Sketchology Templates that you won't want to be without. These girls never stop and I admire them so very much!

I do not have an actual "peek" to show you (long story), so this week you're going to have to jump right on over to their store to see what they've created for you.  Or...if you're a newsletter subscriber, you'll get to see the awesomeness even sooner!

Next week we will resume our "regularly" scheduled sneak peek post...with an actual peek! :)

In case you missed Clean Cut it's being released today at Gotta Pixel. It's perfect for scrapping all those first haircuts or pictures from a quick trip to get a little trim! You can pick up the element pack and paper pack today at Gotta Pixel.
The new releases wouldn't be complete without something for the girls too! A spa day, a mommy and me trip to get your nails done or a trip to the salon...Mani/Pedi is on sale today at Gotta Pixel as well. You can pick up the element pack and paper pack for this kit too!
Did I mention that it is $1.00 Pixels at Gotta Pixel? That's right...each one of these packs is only $1.00 today! You can pick up each pack and have a ready to go kit full of tons of elements and papers for a low price!!
I will end today's post with a little freebie for you. I made some word on the download for your link!

Until next Tuesday...Happy Scrapping!

It's Springtime, and Have I Got News for You!

Rainy or sunny, Spring has finally arrived in northern England! It's a beautifully sunny day today, as have been the past several. We do get more than our fair share of rain, but I do suppose I should have expected as much when we moved to the Lake District... suppose those lakes have to come from somewhere, eh?!

Well, whether your Spring is round out to be mostly rainy, or mostly sunny, or perhaps a good mix of both... Bella Gypsy has some real spring beauties this week! It's Designer Swap week at Elemental Scraps as well, which means when you buy a product from one designer you'll get a cool surprise freebie from another designer! How great is that?

If rain is in your forecast, get out those rain boots (or wellies) and umbrellas and have a good old paddle in the puddles! Check out Drizzle Drops:

 And if you pick this up within the next 6 days, you'll get a surprise bonus from Connie Prince!
have a look at the Creative Team's inspiring layouts:

Now, if you are lucky enough to have beautiful sunshine on your face, well, then have I go the kit for you! I have seen quite a few bee themed kits lately, but this kit is amazing! The color palette is gorgeous, and you won't be disappointed with the fantastic selection of patterned papers, and a cute little bee to boot! The perfect kit to scrap your busy little bee!
And, again, don't forget, you get a fantastic free bonus from Connie Prince, too!

Ahh, check out these beauties:
And of course, these gorgeous kits are accompanied by some totally fantastic templates! Don't believe me, see for yourself!

All, lots of lovely stuff in store, so head on over there and check it out. Oh, but first, how about a freebie?
Yes? OK!

Here's your freebie for today, featuring the beautiful Drizzle Drops kit!

Sunday is Here!!!!

That means it's time to show off some super-dee-duper sneak peeks for all you wonderful Bella Gypsy fans!!! 

So, today I am going to do a "drive-by" posting!  That's where I come in and show you the most awesome sneak peeks and then say "bye!"  Haha!  It's Sunday and it is so very, very beautiful here in good 'ole Colorado!  We are going to go outdoors, have some fun, and in the process we'll be making memories and thus, I'll have more scrapping material!!! :)  It's a win-win situation!

Here is what Bella Gypsy has in store for you this week!

Isn't that just "bee"eautiful!???
And this one isn't too shabby either, eh??  I can't wait until the afternoon rainshowers begin.  I think one of my favorite things about Spring is the rain!  The sounds, the smell, everything about rain is beautiful - in my humble opinion! :)  We get a lot of afternoon showers here and we'll be doing some puddle jumping in no time at all!!  Yahooo!

Thanks for dropping by!  I love showing off Bella Gypsy's sneaks each week.  Fun times!!

Until next time...
