August Updates at Stuff to Scrap

It's already August and summer is rapidly coming to an end. If you're like me, you have taken a ton of pictures and haven't had much time to scrap them all yet. With school starting and summer activities settling down, now is a great time to get to work on all of that. And if you're looking for some awesome new kits to scrap with, look no further than Stuff to Scrap. There are some awesome sales going on right now and all month long, so be sure to browse through the store.

New challenges are always one of the best parts of a new month at STS, so head over to the Current Challenges section to see what the new August challenges are all about & get the August Speed Scraps on your calendar. They are a great way to get all those summertime pictures scrapped fast. Did you catch my speed scrap last week? If you missed it, you can now grab the participation prize for just $1.50 over in my store.

While there, be sure to take a look at the August Mega Designer Collaboration, The Great Outdoors. This kit contains: 2 alphas, 2 templates, glitter (styles, sheets, and patterns) , 82 elements, and 21 papers. Just what you'll need to complete the August Mega Kit Challenge!

With the mention of summer coming to an end there is also change in the air. Seasons of change is our theme for the August Build A Kits! You'll find a whole range of fun paper & element packs to pick up, in this season of change. 

Finally, the August 2013 Road Trip, Refreshing, has taken off, you'll find all the stops right here. Make sure to check it out soon because each piece is only required to be available for 2 weeks & you won't want to miss out on any of these great freebies. If you're interested in joining in on the September 2013 Road Trip, you can find all the details in the September 2013 Road Trip thread, we'd love to see you! Thanks for reading & happy scrapping!

"Day With Dad" - Freebie!

Happy Father's Day! How are you celebrating? We spent Friday/Saturday camping and just got back. Tomorrow is church and sharing the boys' sweet homemade gifts for daddy.

One of the things I'm doing is giving away this kit just for you. It's a kit I made a while back for a speed scrap, but never added it to my store, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give it away. :)
Here's a preview of "Day with Dad" (freebie links are at the bottom of the post):

And here's a layout I made using the kit of my littlest monkey last year on his first trip to a water park:

I'm currently figuring out what I want to do to continue offering direct download for you, so for today they are on 4shared:
