Fresh Baked: August 01, 2013

Good morning! Can you believe that it’s already August? Feels like the newsletter for July 01 was just getting sent out, and now we’re at the first of August. Soon, we’ll be watching

This month, there’s no official theme to the buffet. There’s a unifying color palette, and the kits play together beautifully. Enjoy the August 2013 {Designer’s Choice} buffet series this month!

We have NEW Buffet options!! You asked for it, and we listened! The GS Buffet will now included FULL size kits!! In addition to the mix and match packs, you can now also find full size kits in the buffet section. The price point has been adjusted accordingly. Everything in the Buffet will always be $4.00 and under. Every month the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month). That means Full kits for $2 and a ton of mix and match packs all for $1!! You will not want to miss this!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

Remember, if you don’t want to hear the sound, just click the button next to the play button, and it will mute it for you. The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

The CT did such a great job showing how well all of the kits blend. They all did wonderful work!

Remember, if you don’t want to hear the sound, just click the button next to the play button, and it will mute it for you.

This is just a few of the layouts. Keep an eye out in future newsletters to see more. Maybe even one of yours, if you make sure you put it into the Buffet section of the gallery!

It’s time for the monthly Bake Sale!!

Here are just a few of the items you’ll find in the Bake Sale:

This month, we have a new Guest Designer! Rachel of Seatrout Scraps!

We asked Rachel to tell us a little about herself, and this is what she had to share:

My name is Rachel and I design as Seatrout Scraps. I live in the UK on the west coast of Wales, overlooking Ireland. We live about 10 minutes from the beach and in a small village of 1500 people. I have been married to Nev for 20 years and am a stepmum to Justin and Michelle and have 4 grandchildren, ranging from 19 down to 13 years old.
I started paper scrapping a long time ago but switched to digi in 2010. I was hooked immediately. So was my husband who is in charge of housekeeping. He was delighted that I wasn’t leaving trails of paper snips and ribbon ends behind me whenever I left a room any more.
I started designing in 2012 and concentrate mainly on templates, although I do make some kits.

Here are just a few things that you’ll find!

This month’s Monthly Mix is called “Family Reunion”. It’s a beautiful kit, perfect for family gatherings of all sorts. It was collabed between Katie Creates, Pixels by Jen, Pretty in Green, and Twin Mom Scraps.

Isn’t it just wonderful?

It’s time for a new daily download, and I think you are in for a-hooting-good time.

July’s DD was created by Rachel, of Pretty in Green, and it was adorable!

I personally just ADORE the owls, and if you do, too, you’re going to LOVE August’s Daily Download. This month, it was created by Joylynn of Blue Heart Scraps, and it’s just too cute for words! But you don’t have to take my word for it!

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great grab bag! This month’s was created by Aprilisa Designs.

I hope your July was safe and happy, and that August treats you to the same.
