  Connie's latest kit USA is currently on sale.  I love the patriotic colors with the yellow and light blue thrown in.  This will be great for all of those 4th of July memories.

 The Retiring Product Sale is still going on.  Each product retiring is $1-$1.50.  If you see something you like be sure to grab it before it is gone for good.  To get a closer look at what is retiring visit either GingerScraps or GottaPixel.

Last of all is your freebie.  I used the new USA kit to make some fun flourishes.  You may download them HERE.
Enjoy and have a great week.

Sunday Sneak Peek + A Free Gift!

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Connie here with this week's sneak peek post :)  The #2016 July collection will debut this upcoming Thursday and here is your first peek at what is inside.


Here a couple of rules you need to know.

  1. All comments are to be placed ON THIS POST  by Wednesday evening at 10:00 PM Eastern time. That would be June 29th. Drawing is release day, June 30th.
  2. You MUST INCLUDE an email address where we can reach you in case you win. Should you fail to include an email address, I will not include your name in the random drawing.  Thanks for all those email addresses last week.  Most appreciated!!  
  3. On weeks where multiple products are released, you need only enter your name once. You will automatically be placed in both random drawings to win. 
I know everyone is concerned about junk mail and spam.  Feel free to enter your emails in the following fashion:  connie.prince(at)gmail(dot)com  If I don't see an email address, I do click on the name. If you have an "email me" set up, I can still include you in the drawing.  If there is no email in the comment or when I click on your name, I regret that you won't be in the drawing. We must have some way to get ahold of the winner!!
 
Here is a cute freebie created by Dannethia for you!
 

Have a terrific week!

I hope you have some wonderful plans for fun today.  I’m off to get a little more done on my to do list.  I’m afraid my get up and go for today has gotten up and gone without me though.  I’ll see you on Tuesday for the next Take $2 Tuesday Sale!

Friday Finds

What can you find going on in the Designs by Connie Prince stores today?  A brand new July 4th inspired collection called U.S.A. and a Retiring Products Sale! 

Let’s look at this new collection first.  I had a feeling when Connie retired the Made in America collection that we were in for a new USA/4th of July collection.  U.S.A. has lots of fun elements and papers to make scrapping your 4th of July celebrations fresh and fun!

cap_USAADALL

You can pick all these packs up at Ginger Scraps, Gotta Pixel, and The Digi Chick.

Here are a few more layouts from Connie’s Creative Team to show you this collection in style!

I think you can tell that the team loved the template in the core packs that had the big photo and the big USA letters.  So much fun!  I love seeing how each person makes the templates and kit work in different ways.  I look forward to seeing your layouts inspire others in the galleries too!

I mentioned that Connie has a retiring products sale going on.  It’s time to say good-bye to some of her older products as she makes room for more new products.  Check it out before July 1st!

Earlier this month Connie created a totally adorable collection called Find the Fish.  I think she might have been inspired by another new release that has been on many families summer plans. The collection would be wonderful for many different layouts and projects and I’m sure it’s become a favorite in some of your scrapping stashes already.  CTM Deanna created today’s quick page freebie with this collection!

Just a reminder, due to some hosting needs freebies are only available for a week or two.  If you see something you really want be sure to download it.  We don’t want you to miss out on something that you really want!

Have a great weekend!

New Release! USA Collection

Connie’s newest collection is in stores today just in time for you to decorate and document all those Independence Day celebrations and more!  You can pick up the main packs in a convenient bundle or individual packs.  I personally love the bundle option because I’m want all the packs and it saves time.

Here is a closer look at the core packs in the bundle.

Take $2 Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

It’s another Take $2 Tuesday!!  Every Tuesday Connie picks two of her kits and places them on sale for only $2 each.  Not only that all the coordinating add on packs are only $1 each!  If you missed these kits when they released on if they are sitting on your wish list this is the perfect opportunity to pick them up!  It’s a perfect way to build your stash!

Today’s kits are My World and Marvelous Mint.  *Note Marvelous Mint was in the {HUES} series.  In the My World kit you will find beautiful elements and papers that are perfect for those nostalgic layouts and more.  Marvelous Mint is a refreshing kit with mints and black from the {HUES} series.

You have two more days to pick up the June 2016 Grab Bag while it’s on sale for only $5.  When I discovered Designs by Connie Prince, her grab bags were on my must have list every month.  I made sure I had $5 in my scrapping budget set aside just for her grab bags!  If you love water sports, or relaxing by the water you really need this month’s grab bag!

Connie has to make some room in her stores for all the new products that she has coming your way and that means it’s time for a Retiring Products Sale.  Even though I’ve been a Connie Prince fan for years I still check her retiring products sale for those gems that I somehow missed.  Once these are placed in the vault they are gone so don’t miss out on picking up what you want!

Today’s freebie is a cluster frame I made with My World.  I hope it makes a great addition to your layout!  I included two versions, one with all shadows, and one with no bottom shadow.  Enjoy!
