Feelin SAS-y

Wow, what an exciting week we had with round 2 of the designer contest. There were so many comments about how people had such a hard time choosing their favorite to vote for. I am really excited that about the prospect of having some of these talented women join the SAS design team. Round 3 is a “Free for All” I thought it would be the best way to let them show the full range of their talents by letting them choose exactly what they wanted to in this round so it should be very interesting.

Apparently a lot of you were around the forum just as the voting closed because it over loaded our server and the site was down for about a half hour. I was just getting ready to take a screen shot of the results and I could not get back in, talk about panic. I got on the phone to Blue Host and had to wait in line for about 20 minutes, they actually said it was their fault, I don’t know if they had not allocated enough resources to the server or what but they did have it up and running within a few minutes of me getting in touch with them. As soon as the site gets a little bigger I am going to have it moved over to my own server so that nothing like that ever happens again.

You have to get by Candee’s store and take a look at her latest kit. It is her first altered art kit and I’ll tell you, she did an awesome job of it. Don’t be surprised to see a lot more altered art coming from her.

I did have time to repackage Feelin SAS-y and get it into the store this week. I know a lot of you already have it but for those of you who don’t I have a freebie of it for you today. It is available in a few configurations, a kit, mega kit and a paper pack. The kit and mega kit are on sale for the next few weeks.

I really hate to make alphas, between upper case, lower case, numbers and symbols there are 72 cut, paste and saves so it gets very repetitious. I wanted to get Feelin Frosty in the store so I didn’t make an alpha for it, then I just started feeling like it just wasn’t done without one so I also added an alpha to Feelin Frosty and I will be sending the link out to those of you that already bought it. The mega kit is on sale right now.

17 Christmas Kits Free

We have some really awesome kits in this round. There is some real talent in this group and I am so excited that the next SAS-y Ladies will be coming out of this contest. I am glad that I exempted myself from voting because I don’t think I could make p my mind. What I would encourage you to do is to download the kits and take a close up look at them before you make up your mind. A good preview is very difficult to do, I spend hours and hours on mine and it is hard to really show off some of the details, especially if you have a lot of papers and embellishments. You will get a better idea of the quality once you see them at full size. Voting will be done in the forum with a poll (no repeat of last eek…LOL) so after you have a chance to download the kits please come back and vote so you can help decide who the next SAS-y Ladies will be.

Go get there kits in the gallery.

Feelin Frosty Freebie

You probably heard about the vote problem we had by now, it was the craziest thing. Friday night I was telling Steve how well things had gone and I just felt like I had jinxed it. I am one of those “never say never” people, about 10 years ago I said “I have never had a speeding ticket” what do you think happened the next day…LOL. Last year Meg said “Mom, you should be proud of me, with all of the driving I have done I have never had a speeding ticket” I told her my little story and said “Never say never” The next day she was driving back to college when she called me and said “Mom, you were right (words that you rarely hear from a teenager….LOL) I just got my first speeding ticket” I am not normally a superstitious person (I love black cats and have walked under ladders with no ill effects) but in this case I will never say never again.

We have a new SAS-y Princess for December, Rose won with Leaf Pile using Autumn Wind by CanDesigns. Rose will receive a $20 storewide coupon to SAS. If you want to be the next SAS-y Princess post your layouts using SAS products in the gallery and post the link in the SAS-y Princess forum. At the end of the month the SAS-y Ladies vote for their favorite.

I have been working on a snowflake kit for the last month or so and I finally finished Feelin Frosty up today. I just love snowflakes and I spent a lot of time making the ones I used as embellishments and on the paper. I went a little overboard on paper again and ended up with over 80. I had a heck of a time deciding which ones to use so I came up with a kit and an add-on. One thing that took forever was the icicle topper, and ice frame, they came out pretty good. I used 4 or 5 Action FX styles in this kit, if you haven’t taken a look at what Al has to offer you will be amazed, over 100,000 styles, brushes and other things for one low price so check it out. Feelin Frosty will be in the store sometime today, the kit and add-on can be bought together as a Mega kit for a big savings, the mega kit is on sale for the next two weeks. Here is a sampling of the kit, Enjoy!

Feelin Peachy Part 3

I have the last of Feelin Peachy today, all of the other links are still active. I fixed the link for the alphas so if you do not have them the right link is with part two.

The SAS designer contest started yesterday, everyone seems to be pretty excited about the palette. I love these colors and can’t wait to see what the contestants come up with. All of the entries will be available for download after 7p.m. Friday and all SAS members are eligible to vote so the more contestants the merrier. It is not too late to join the contest, just email me at and I will send you all the information you need to get started. You can grab the palette here of go to the forum and download it from there. Entries are due by Friday at 10 am EST and should be posted in the gallery. There are already some gorgeous entries in the gallery so stop by and take a look.

The Winner is…

Wow! What a tough choice that was, there were so many great names to choose from. I was surprised at how many of them really fit the feel of the kit and I was touched at how many of you were reminded of a special time or person on your life, thank you for sharing that with me. I went through the list with my nieces on Thanksgiving, they are 10 and 13, they got a kick out of the fact that Aunt Julie has a website and blog…LOL. We all pretty much agreed on the name we thought best fit the kit so the winning name is Tuscan Sunset, Cheng suggested it but she did not leave an address so, Cheng, get in touch with me at and I will send you a coupon for the kit. If I am ever stuck for a name I will definitely do this again, what you came up with is so much better then what I could have. The kit should be in the store sometime today, the regular price is 5.95 but I will have it on sale for 4.25 for the first two weeks. The preview is a little messy but I always try to fit everything in so it gets kind of crammed with all of the elements.

The SAS designer contest starts today, I am pretty excited about it, I have looked at the blogs of some of the entries and there is some real talent out there. I am looking forward to adding 4 new designers to the team also, I think 15 will be a good number of designers. Right now the designers do two contests a month but I would like to be able to cut that down to one each, so with that number of designers we can still have a lot of fun things going on. It is not too late to enter so if you are interested e-mail me and I will send you all of the information you will need, you just have to have your entry in by the deadline Friday Nov 30th at 10 a.m. The palette for the first round is posted in the forum. The voting starts Friday Nov 30th at 7 p.m. and all of the kits will be available for download after that time so be sure to stop by the gallery.

Contest is closed, Thanks!

WOW, you guy really went to town. I have my work cut out for me in choosing a name from all of those great suggestions. The contest is closed now and I will go through the suggestions and announce the winning name in a few hours. Thanks so much for participating in this, naming and describing kits is not my strong point, so this will help a lot.

Don’t forget to go by the store, we are having a 40% of sale for Black Friday, so if you are looking for a way to save money but can’t bear the thought of getting out on the cold and the crowd that is the place to do it. It is not to late to sign up for the designer contest that starts on Monday. I want to add 4 new designers to the team so if you have been considering becoming a professional designer e-mail me at and I will send you the details.

BTW, There were a few problems with the Feelin Peachy alpha, so here is the right link to the alpha.

Name That Kit Freebie

Well here it is, I have been working on this kit for over a month and it is almost ready. I thought it was done last night but when I started putting the previews together I decided it was too dark and golden for the look I was going for, I ended up doing a major overhaul to make it more rosy and lighter. I didn’t get the alpha done and there are a few more things I want to do with the flowers but the previews should give you enough to come up with a good name for it. If you look closely at the floral papers you will see that they are embossed. I just love this look and I am working on a few more kits using it. There is also a nice freebie so you can get a good look at it and there should be enough pieces to make a layout or two. Whoever comes up the winning name will receive the kit free, just post your suggestions in the comment section. I will announce the decision shortly after noon (e.s.t.) on Friday so be sure to get yours in by then.

For those of you who are sane enough to forgo the frantic after Thanksgiving sales SAS is having a big Black Friday sale, 40% off everything in the store (except commercial use) so you can stay home and do your shopping in your jimmies if you want and still save money, what a deal huh…LOL

I am so excited about Thanksgiving this year for two reasons, the first is that it is my SIL’s year to have it…LOL, when we have it here it takes a week to get the dining room ready since has always been my DH’s “drop it” point for all of his work stuff, give him a flat surface and he will pile something on it. The other reason I am excited is that this is the first Thanksgiving that Beth will be home since she joined the Air Force. She is stationed in Nebraska right now, it is about a 7-hour drive, which naturally makes me very nervous, but it will be great to have her home for a few days. So even though we are not having dinner here I will probably spend the next few days getting the house cleaned up a bit and cooking a few of her favorite meals. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with your family, even the ones that drive you nuts, take lots of pictures. Enjoy!

Mega Kit Freebie

I have a freebie from the SAS mega kit today, I get so tickled every time I look at this kit. There are 72 papers and over 80 embellishments. I love the way the designers used the gold. The SAS CT has done some great layouts using it, if you would like to take a look they are in the gallery. The kit is on sale for 6.95 through Dec 11th, that comes out to about 4 cents a piece for all of those elements.

Come back tomorrow for a freebie from my soon to be released kit, I have been working on it for a few weeks but I still don’t have a name for it when, I asked Janalyn if she had any ideas she suggested a “Name that kit” contest, I thought that was a great idea. I still have a few elements to finish up and then the preview to do, so I will have the preview and a freebie up tomorrow and hopefully it will spark a thought or two on the name. With Thanksgiving coming up I know everyone will be busy so I will run the contest until Friday and then the person who submitted the winning name will win the kit.

Don’t forget the SAS Designer Contest, it starts on Monday the 26th, I have taken a look at the blogs of some of the contestants and I am real excited about what I see. If you would like to enter e-mail me at and I will send you the details, maybe you will be the next SAS-y Lady!

Feelin Peachy 2 and Mega Kit

If you got our newsletter then you know the big news, Boo of Booland Designs has joined the SAS-y design team. Boo has been with SAS from the beginning, she’s been a great CT member and her designs are incredible. We have a few of her products in the store with LOTS more to come, stop by and take a look.

We released our November Mega kit yesterday, I have always been so happy with what the SAS-y Ladies come up with for the mega kit but I am thrilled with this one, the papers are so rich and detailed, everything is tied together by a touch of gold, there are 72 papers and over 80 elements so the possibilities are endless. Jan will be getting it out to the CT soon so we should have some layouts in the gallery in a few days. To see more previews or to buy it (now is a good time because it is on sale…LOL) go to the store to take a look.

Preview of some of the elements in the November Mega kit

Here is part 2 of Feelin Peachy, I got the alpha done, I should write a script to do alphas because they are a real pain, I like to separate each letter but with upper case, lowercase, numbers and characters there are 80 cut, paste and saves to an alpha, very repetitious. I still have a few more ideas for this kit now that I have decided what direction I want to go with it so I will be back with those soon. Enjoy!

Date Change for SAS Designer Contest

There’s been a few things that have come up that have made me decide that I need to reschedule the designer contest The first problem is that two of our designers are moving next week and another one just had a baby. We are relying on the designers to check over all of the entries for quality so it might be too much for the rest of us to do in time for the voting to start. Then with Thanksgiving the next week it could difficult for the contestants to get their entries in with family obligations, so the contest will start on Monday the 26th and run for 3 weeks. Here is the new schedule for the contest,

Contest starts on Monday, November 26th at 10 a.m. EST, this is when the theme or palette will be released.
Entries are due Friday Nov 30th at 10 a.m.
Voting starts Friday Nov 30th at 7 p.m,
Voting closes Sunday Dec 2nd at 7 p.m.
Next round starts on Monday, Dec 3rd at 10 a.m.

We have some exciting contestants already so I know this is going to be a lot of fun. I will be back Tuesday with more of Feelin Peachy and I hope I can finish up a new kit I have been working on.

Feelin Peachy + Designer Contest

I have the first part of Feelin Peachy for you today, I started this over a month ago but I have not had a lot of design time so I have been doing a piece or two now and then. That seems to be the only way I get to design lately, I actually have 6 kits in the works, I keep coming up with ideas and start a new one but then I get sidetracked by something. I am bound and determined to get a kit that I have been working on out next week, wait until you see it! I think it is the prettiest paper I have ever made so I have been really trying to come up with some awesome elements to go with it. Hopefully this weekend I can find some time. Now that we are all organized and have a system I have been trying to set the weekends aside to get away from the computer a little bit and when I am on it I do something fun, like designing or trying a new technique.

I have some very exciting news for you, SAS is going to have a designer contest. I would like to take on 4 more designers and this seemed like a good way to do it. Rather then me deciding if they are a good fit for the store I thought it would be a good idea to let all of you vote on who you would like. The designers and I are only going to check the products for quality and the registered members will do the voting, the best part is that the kits the contestants submit will be available for you to download FREE! So if you think your are ready to be an “official” designer go to the forum for more information.

I have been a little frustrated by some of the limitations of Zen Cart so I am going to change over to X-Cart in the next few weeks. It is going to be a lot of work and money to get it done but from what I have seen of the program it will make things a lot easier in the long run. I am going to need to hire a web master to help out with setting up X-Cart and a few other maintenance type things that need to be done on the site so if you would be interested in helping out (for a very reasonable rate…LOL) I would love to hear from you.

Here is the start of Feelin Peachy, I will be back with more next week and I will also have some more news to share, but I will keep that a secret for now (a little hint, we have a new designer joining the team, this person has been such a joy to have at SAS and we are all excited to have her join the team.)

SAS-y Princess Winner is.....

I just have a quick post for you about out SAS-y Princess contest. This was such a tough choice, all of the designers had multiple layouts that they liked but since we had to make a choice to crown our first SAS-y Princess we picked Randje, for Wendy´s Wimpers. Using Phreephorm Designs - Rock My World Girl kit the simplicity of the layout really allowed the focus to be on the adorable baby, the photography really stood out also. One thing that really made it hard was there were so many beautiful babies, it was hard not to think of each of them as winners. The criteria for the judging were personal preference and that may have made it harder to choose but I think we are going to keep it that way. To see all of the beautiful layouts go to the gallery. Randje is the November SAS-y Princess and she will be awarded a $20 SAS storewide coupon. We are starting the contest for December so be sure to get your layouts entered in the November SAS-y Gallery.

Halloween Tricks or Treats

Link expired

A few people have reported being asked for a password to unzip this file. I do not have a password on it. I think the problem might be some people might have a firewall protection program that is doing it since it does not happen to everyone. I have an alternative link that might help. I do promise you that if you like my papers you will LOVE this.
Alternative download for Trick or Treat freebie

Well the trick was almost on me, last night my internet went down, after about 6 hours. I was starting to panic a little, I was afraid I was going to have to take my DH’s computer and go out in the middle of the night to find some place that had wi-fi so I could upload my treats for you. What a relief when it came back on.

Phreephorm is the one that put all of this together, it was all her idea and she has done such a great job, I absolutely LOVE her knockers. BTW, it is her birthday today so be sure to say “Happy Birthday” when you stop by her blog. To celebrate she has her whole store on sale.

Welcome Darlene and Mega kit Freebie

We have a lot of things going on this week. The first and most exciting is that Darlene is joining the SAS design team. I absolutely love her style and something that really impressed me is her organizational system. I really think a nicely organized kit makes it easier to find things. I am somewhat obsessive myself about how I organize the kits I buy, for a while there I was spending more time organizing than scrapping…LOL, but I do know where everything is. Janalyn and Trish F spent the weekend stocking her store so stop by and take a look.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for Trick or Treating, I don’t have any tricks for you but all of the SAS-y Ladies will have a treats. This will be a lot more fun than getting up every few minutes to answer the doorbell.

You have one more day to enter the SAS-y Princess contest, we have some lovely entries. The winner will be the SAS-y Princess next month and gets a $20 store coupon, for details and to get you layout entered go to the forum.

I have a sampling of the SAS October Mega kit to share with you today. I have told you before that I love fall colors and this palette has a nice variation of colors to complement your fall happenings. See you tomorrow, Enjoy!

Delicious Berry Blue 5

BTW, in the newsletter I said Thanksgiving is next week, just so none of you panic and start baking, Thanksgiving is next MONTH, Halloween is next WEEK…LOL

Today brings us to the grand finale of Delicious Berry Blue, I redid the butterflies, they were a little too bright for the kit so I toned them down a bit and I have an array of flowers in this download. I will leave the links up until Nov 31 so be sure to get all of the pieces before then.

Our newsletter is out and we have our new SAS mega kit on sale, I have close-up previews of my portion and a few of the papers I made for it. To see the whole kit go to the store.

The SAS-y ladies are getting your tricks and treats ready so be sure to visit us on Halloween for your goodie bag.

I have had a great response from people wanting our Feelin Welcome kit and I am a little behind getting out the “I’m registered” requests but they will be in our mailbox soon.

Fall is in the air here and I am looking forward to Thanksgiving, my SIL and I take turns hosting the family and I am very thankful that it in not my turn…LOL Although I love to decorate for fall with everything I have going on with the site it would not be a good year, besides I have about 6 months of housecleaning to catch up on…ROFLOL. With BethO in the Air Force she has missed the last two Thanksgivings but she is coming home this year and that is something I am so thankful for. Enjoy!

Delicious Berry Blue and Feelin Welcome

Last week was a good week, it was one of those times when everything just seemed to come together, I got Vintage Rose done and I have the mega kit on sale. After having dozens of people ask me to get Feelin Wonderful in the store I finally got it repackaged. I will have to say, it was a real booger to figure out how to do it. First I was going to do it by color, but then it would have been uneven, so I decided to divide it by style. Many of the pieces are perfect for formal/dressy occasions and a lot of them are more fun and light hearted. So Feelin Wonderfully Elegant and Feelin Wonderfully Playful are now available in the SAS Boutique for the wonderfully elegant and playful price of $4.95 each!! There was also enough pieces to make Feelin Welcome, this is SAS’s welcome kit. It is available to all new forum registrants, within a few days of registering it will be sent to you. But I do not want anyone to be left out so if you registered in the forum after the links to Feelin Wonderful were removed send me e-mail at and I will send you the link. It will make it a lot easier for me if you include “I’m registered” in your subject line.

I have part 4 of Delicious Berry Blue for you today. This color palette has been so much fun to work with and if I ever get time to scrap I have lots of pictures of my kids in these colors. Just for the heck of it I made a preview of all of the pieces I have given out so far, those links are still active.

Be sure to check out SAS’s newsletter, there are some great specials and fun treats for you that are only available through the newsletter. Pillow has an ongoing freebie that is connected to her newsletter freebie so be sure to get by her blog to snag those. This week’s newsletter is an expanded edition that Lori will be putting together monthly, she has done a spectacular job developing the style and this week’s issue is premier of our member spotlight column. Enjoy!

Vintage Rose is Here

First I want to say Happy Birthday to my mom. She lives in Massachusetts so I do not get to see her very often. She was a school lunch room worker for a long time and she use to hate to fly but in the last 10 years or so she has become a world traveler, she has been to every continent except Antarctica, and is quite the cruise queen. My mom is one of the funniest people I know, she can tell a story in such a way that you will end up literally ROFLYBO. I had thyroid cancer about 15 years ago and her and my Aunt Cheryl came to take care of me and my family while I was recovering, I almost split my stitches laughing so much. I tried to call her today but her Call Wave would not let me through for some reason so, Mom, Happy Birthday!! I love you.

I am going to interrupt Delicious Berry Blue and introduce Vintage Rose, I had so much fun with this kit, it was great to get away from managing the store for a while. Jan is back from vacation so I hope to have more design time, there is so much to do when you have a store, it would be impossible for me without people like Janalyn and Lori helping out. This color palette was so easy to work with, the papers just kept rolling out and I ended up with over 50. If you look closely you can see the details and textures in the papers. Of course I had to have beads, they are one of my favorite things to make, check out the drop beads, they took forever to make but I have wanted to do something like this for awhile. It will be in the store as a kit, an add-on and as a mega kit, which is a combination of the kit and the add-on at a 25% savings. I have the mega kit on sale until Tuesday night for the same price as the kit so you might want to snap it up for that price. I have a freebie for you from Vintage Rose, it will give you a taste of the details and textures in the kits and should be enough to make a nice layout, Enjoy!

Download problems

I have had a few reports of problems with the Giga Size link so I am adding a Send Space link and also the 4-shared link, but I have a warning in my post below about the 4-Shared link having an erotic ad on it, I have sent numerous e-mails and left some phone messages for 4-Shared about this disgusting ad so be forwarned.

Send Space link to Delicious Berry Blue Part 3

Read the post below before you use the 4-Shared link

4-Shared link to Delicious Berry Blue Part 3

Delicious Berry Blue Part 3

OMGosh, I would have had this up sooner but when I checked the 4-Shared link I was SHOCKED to see an extremely disgusting advertisement for a hot and h*rn*y Britney Spears video in the link. There was also a video of someone throwing himself in front of a bus. I spent a lot of time trying to get through to 4-shared on the phone with no luck so I wrote an e-mail to every address that 4-shared had to hopefully get some attention for this. I know that as a free site we agree to have advertisements on the link but I thought they did not allow offensive ads. I sure hope this is a fluke and it gets cleared up soon. Then I tried to use Send Space but I kept getting error messages, so I ended up putting them on gigasize.

I am going to keep it short and sweet today, I have a lot of irons in the fire that are going to melt if I don’t get back to them…LOL

I am so happy with how this kit is coming along, next to autumn colors this is my favorite color combination. I have a lot of pictures of my kids in these colors and I bet you do too. I am using Painter to make some flowers for the kit, I hope to have them ready soon, but it is a challenging program to learn.

I just got the newsletter out so hopefully you will find it in your mailbox today. If you are not registered in the forum you are not in our mailing list so be sure to get signed up for next week. I didn’t have a chance to make a freebie for this week but next week I want to add to the freebie I had in the newsletter last week.

Well I need to run, Enjoy!

Delicious Berry Blue Part 2

It has been another busy week for me, I spent some time trying to read the manual for Blue Host (the server the site is on.) OMGosh, who writes those things, I know they are in English but you could have fooled me...LOL. I think I need to take a trip to the bookstore today to find a book that will explain this web master stuff. I have also been getting organized, when things are unorganized it just drives me nuts, it must be my obsessive side, I am just glad that all of the paperwork is on my computer and not on my desk, because if it was on my desk it would have fallen over and buried me by now, geez, I hate paperwork… (ROFLOLHysterically.) Janalyn, one of my right-hand girls will be coming home from her vacation in Ireland soon and I think I will throw a party to welcome her home, her and Lori are two of the people that help make all of this possible.

When I need a break from paperwork I have been learning to paint in Painter, it is something I have wanted to do since I put my water and oil colors away years ago. Painter is an incredible program but the learning curve on it is steeper than Mt Everest, first it helps to have some artistic talent and them remembering all of the steps involved in making a brush do what you want it do takes some time, it could be awhile until I come up with something good enough to show you, a loooong while…LOL

The third edition of our newsletter went out on Wednesday, If you are registered in the forum but did not receive it let me know at Don’t forget about our SAS-y Princess contest the winner will win a $20 store coupon for doing what you love to do, scrapping, so go check it out. Be sure to get by all of the SAS designer’s blogs, they are all giving out some great freebies today and you don’t want to miss them.

Well, it is off the bookstore for me to see if I can find something written in English about managing websites, wish me luck…LOL Here is part 2 of Delicious Berry Blue, Enjoy!

Delicious Berry Blue Freebie

Here is the first part of my October freebie, I was tempted to do fall colors because I love those colors but I ended up making a fall colored newsletter freebie for you instead.

We have so many exciting things going on at SAS this week. Yesterday was the start of our SAS-y Princess contest. Submit your links to layouts made from SAS products here and at the end of the month the designers will choose who will be the SAS Princess for the next month, the winner will also receive a $20 store coupon. We have also started an Honor our Heroes gallery, to honor the men and women that protect and serve, from firefighters to military personal.

All of the designers have been busy putting together some spectacular products so be sure to go by the store and check them out. PillowGirl and Sherah have put together the most awesome kit I have ever seen, this kit has 44 papers and almost 100 unique elements in a subtle fall color palette that will go with so much. You don’t want to miss out on this one.

Our newsletter goes out tomorrow and I have a sneak peek of my freebie that you can only get through the newsletter. If you have not registered in the forum yet then you probably are not on our mailing list. I will be sending the newsletter out in the early afternoon Wednesday so you still have time to register (until noon central, Wednesday, all you have to do is register as a forum user and leave the box checked to receive mail from the administrator.
I hope you enjoy this month’s kit, I had a hard time deciding what pieces to put in the first download because I have so many neat ones made so I gave you a little taste of the various elements, I will be posting a new part twice a week.
