Frugal Fridays: Binder Clip files for $1.00 today only, an Easter Sale and Freebie Time!

Hello everyone,
Easter is almost here! Can you believe it! This year is just flying by! We are going to decorate eggs soon. I can't wait! I'm soo lucky my kids are young and enjoy all these activities. Hmmm I wonder what the Easter bunny is going to bring them?! I can't wait to capture their excitement on film!

 

Before I go into the special for today..did you notice the banner above?  That's right I am having a sale to celebrate Easter.  You can get all my designs including cutter files, digital stamps, digital scrapbooking kits and templates for 40% off.  What a great deal!  If you don't have your Easter gifts done yet there may be something in my store that may help.  Why not stop on over today.  Click here to get to my store. 

It's Friday so that means it's time for my Frugal Friday special. For today only I am featuring my build a binder clip cutter file or my digital build a clip template used for digital scrapbooking and card making for only $1.00!  Hurry though the price will magically disappear at midnight EST today April 2, 2010.  See the clock on the right to know what time it is in the PT store.  Click previews below to purchase either template or even both if you wish.   Before you leave though check out what my CDT has done and get your freebie.





Check out what the my newest talented team member did with the build a clip template and my Spring Splendor Digital Scrapbooking kit which is on sale the whole month of April!


That flower photo is simple gorgeous and I love how she attached the photo with the binder clips.  The title that comes in the kit is a perfect match!  Yeah!  Oh and incidently my Ad was made using this kit too.  It's so refreshing to see Spring colors.  This kit just puts me in a good mood...can you tell!?!  LOL!

Another talented CDT member Brett Robinson was having fun with my Spring Watering Can Digi stamp.


The card in the top left  card uses metallic pens and Doodlebug glitter.  The label is from  Jen Adkin's Designs Heritage Labels 1 .  I love the the cardboard background..so perfect!  The bottom right card uses water colors.  I have tried other painting mediums but never water colors.  After seeing Brett's coloring I may have to give it a try.  The brown paper is from Sixxix Little Sizzles Textures.  Another great background!  Wonderful job Brett!  If you'd like to purchase the watering can digi stamp please click on the preview below.




I showed you the Easter chick on a previous blog post.  Well it's finally available in my store.  I colored him with my Copics in and I think he turned out pretty cute. There's not a lot of detail in this little guy so the coloring goes quickly.  So...it's perfect for that last minute Easter card and will also work well after Easter because of all the sentiments I've included.   I would love to see him done up with some flocking.



Above is the card I created.  I got to use my Copic airbrush system again for the background.  It's soo much fun to use!  I'm so glad I bought it!  Once again I put the Transparent touches kit for March to use.  Even the buttons were included in the kit!  I won't bore you again by raving about this kit club but if you are interested just see my previous post here.  If you would like to purchase the Easter Chick digi stamp click on the preview below. 




Since I started using digital stamps, I have found it's great to use my cutter to help make card bases that I can quickly add my stamps to. These work work for regular stamps too.   My goal is to have a collection that will work for all shapes and sizes of images. So I'd like to share with you the card base I used for the Chickie image and hope to share a few more in the future so you can start your collection too.   In the zip I have included cutter files in AI, KNK, GSD, SVG, and WPC format.  I've also included a layered PSD file for those Photoshop users who want to do their card digitally.  I ask that you please do not share this file with anyone but please send them to my blog instead to download it themselves. My TOU included with the file still applies.    Remember saying thanks will keep the freebies coming.  This file will remain here until Tuesday.   Sorry link removed...look for this in my store.



Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm off to eat lunch and color eggs!  Woo Hoo!  I hope you all have a fabulous Easter.   Don't eat too much chocolate!  LOL!
