We just added some beautiful Christmas designs to the shop. The Christmas Carols Collection was inspired by one of my favorite things about the holidays . . . the music!

Purchase the Christmas Carols Collection Nov. 24 - Dec. 1 and get The Nativity Kit Add-On for FREE!

(You can also purchase The Nativity Kit separately.) The Nativity Kit is automatically included in the download with the Christmas Carols Collection the first week, so you won't need to add it to your cart.

...and last but not least, we have a beautiful "Click" Page Album created with the Christmas Carols Collection:

Be sure to check out the Creative Team Gallery - they've created some beautiful projects with this collection!

Remember that you will SAVE 20% if you purchase the newest designs during the first week of their you have until Dec. 1 to save!

We won't be doing a Black Friday promotion on our site. Why? Well, we'll be shopping -- we're the ones elbowing our way to the front of the mob! *snicker* Juuuust kidding, we have a better excuse than that!

We're going to be celebrating our website's FIRST BIRTHDAY in December! We have some FANTASTIC things planned to CELEBRATE, so we're putting all of our energy into that promotion right now. We'll begin with a fun COUNTDOWN on December 1...where YOU get the GIFTS! Check back this weekend for more details. You won't want to miss a thing!

If you put the papers and embellishments from Annette's freebie from earlier today with these that I designed, you'll notice that they all coordinate. That's not a coincidence.
