I love Connie’s Grab Bags.  It’s like opening a birthday present in each one!  This month gives a nod at those of us returning to school within the next month or so.  You can see all 6 packs fully revealed in the store before you buy.  Every year I look for a new collection to help document the beginning of a new year of adventures for my kids.  I consider it an essential back to school supply, don’t you?

My husband has this framed collection of photos that have a picture from each year of school.  His mom put one together for each of her kids and now it has a place of honor in our house.  I also have photos from each year of school but I haven’t put them into a framed collection yet.  As I was working on my kids memory books (that I’m so far behind on) I was wanting a neat way to put their favorite memories into an organized montage as a divider page.  Connie’s new Grade templates are the perfect answer to that!  There are three packs so you can pick only the ones you want.  I of course had to get them all!

You can find these amazing templates at Ginger Scraps, Gotta Pixel, The Digi Chick.

Budget feeling a bit tight?  I hear ya!  Connie came to the rescue this week with a 40% Off Storewide sale through tomorrow!  Pick up that kit that you know will help you tell that last summer outing story or in anticipation of all the activities you know you will be involved with over the next few weeks!

Sunday Funday Changes!

Good morning, ladies!!  Let's start off with the solution to last week's Jigsaw Puzzle.

Open Face Peach Pie by 3BluEyedBabies
Funny thing is about this layout, the products used varied from store gallery to store gallery.  If you saw the layout on Gotta Pixel, the products were those from the GGI release. Each store gallery had a different set of products.  So - everyone had the correct products and was entered in the random drawing.  Our winner is SANDRA GRIMM.  Congratulations, Sandra!  Your coupons were mailed out to you on Saturday, August 1st.

You all probably noticed the title this week is Sunday Funday Changes!  It's true. Starting today, Sunday Funday is changing to Sneak Peek Sunday! No more games.  On our inaugural post, there are TWO sneak peeks!  There are two upcoming releases this week, so two chances to win.

First let me say this. There are some exceptions to where Sneak Peeks will be held. Reminders about the sneak peeks and their entry location will still be posted at all stores weekly with a link to the Sunday blog post.

  1. You will still find the Hatchery Sneak Peeks on TheDigiChick in the Happy Little Chickadees thread, hosted by justpennys  (aka Penny, The DigiChick Ambassador)
  2. You will still find the GingerScraps Buffet Sneak Peek on Ginger Scraps in the What's Cookin'? Sneak Peeks of all New Products thread, hosted by familyhistoryscrapper (aka Amy, the Ginger Scraps Ambassador.). 
  3. You will still find the Gotta Grab It Sneak Peek on Gotta Pixel in the Site & Designer Announcements thread, hosted by Connie Prince Designs (aka Laramie, the Gotta Pixel Ambassador)

The rest of the Sneak Peeks will be held right here on Connie's blog on Sundays. Products release on Thursdays.  Winners will be notified on Thursday of the winners. I will make a little addendum on the Sunday post announcing the winners, and the winners will again be announced on the following Sunday post, if that makes sense.  (Just in case someone doesn't refer back to the original post.)

There 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.
  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. 
  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:   coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com      Use parenthesis and words in place of the usual signs. 

This week, there are two products releasing on Thursday.  By the Sneak Peek, it looks like it's time for the monthly Template Bundle!  And is that Hollywood I see in the other Sneak Peek? Hollywood, California.  I wonder....
1st Sneak Peek for August 6th, 2015 release

2nd Sneak Peek for August 6th, 2015 release


For your chance to win each of these products, go ahead and leave your comment below.  Something along the lines of "Thanks for the chance to win, followed by your email" will be more than sufficient! I will place all comment submitters (assuming there is an email address) into two random drawings. The #1 position of the first drawing will receive the first Sneak Peek.  The #1 position of the second drawing will receive the second Sneak Peek. (No need to leave more than one comment.)

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email: coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com
Remember, there will be reminders at each store. DO NOT LEAVE your comments there.  To be eligible to win, PLACE YOUR COMMENTS HERE ON THIS BLOG POST!  

Good luck to everyone!!  These are really awesome products coming up.

Sneak Peek (On a Friday?)

I bet you know just why there is a Sneak Peek on a Friday.  There’s a special collection and sale on the horizon!!!  Before I get to the sneak peek let me explain my tardiness today.  Full band rehearsals started today with our High School Freshman and I was doing my duty helping clean band uniforms.  Two days of laundering stinky jackets, jumper type pants (not sure what they are officially called), hats, hat boxes, and more.  It takes an army to get this band of 200 students one the move!  So, I apologize for the delay on the sneak peek and I hope you can understand.

Tomorrow begins the August 2015 Buffet Sale and here is your glimpse at the beauty that Connie has coming your way!

cap_augbuffetsneak

Check back tomorrow for the full reveal!  I promise it’ll be worth it.

Connie released the August 2015 Grab Bag.  Have you taken a look at it?  Whether school starts next week or in a month for your family this is one collection you don’t want to miss!

Happy Thursday everyone!  Many of you are looking at the beginning of school just around the corner.  I know my household is even though it seems as if our summer never really got going.  There was something every single week that had to be done related to school.  That’s the life of two teachers and a child entering the world of High School Band.  Speaking of school starting for some of us, Connie’s August 2015 Grab Bag will have you scrapping all those back-to-school memories in style!  Check out the 6 new products in stores for the full reveal.
