Tuesday’s Savings and Inspiring at Keystone Scraps

Happy Tuesday! CT Dawn here to give you the scoop on the last $2 Tuesday and Keystone Scraps Gallery Stand Out for January.  Can you believe we are already in the last week of January, this month had flown by. Not that I am complaining,  that just means we are one month closer to Summer.  But since we are still in Winter and doing winter activities, Keystone Scraps has added her page kit, Winter Formal to the gottaPixel $2 Tuesday sale.

Winter Formal is the perfect kit for any of the formal event that you or even your children attend.  The lovely silver, orchid, and eggplant palette of this kit will meld seamlessly with those formal dance photos regardless of the colors in the dress! Containing an assortment of music, holiday, and winter papers and elements, you will have the perfect accompaniment for Christmas themed dances, Snow Balls, Holiday concerts, and family portraits.

The $2 Tuesday sale ends tonight January 27th at midnight

Now that I have got the Savings chat over lets move on to the Inspiring part of the post today.  CT Praiser, Tina was leaving some inspiring words on the layouts in the Keystone Scraps Gallery over at gottaPixel and stumble upon this gorgeous layout from Kathleennscraps, titled Everyday.  The masked picture and the helicopter with the paper on the tail looking like movement in the clouds,  and the awesome photo cluster on top of the masked photo is what Tina fell in love with. Kathleennscraps use World Traveler,  Hawaii  to create this stunning layout.  You all can leave some love for Kathleennscraps by clicking on the linked image.

A big Congrats to Kathleennscraps on becoming our Gallery Stand Out!  Please email Paula here with GSO 1/27/15 in the subject line to receive your coupon.  Just a small thank you from Keystone Scraps for using her designs.

Well I think I kept you busy enough for today,  keep posting those layouts in the Keystone Scraps gallery over at gottaPixel for your chance to be picked as the next GSO!  Have a wonderful week, and make sure you stop by on Thursday for the next post in the Meet The CT series.  This week we are meeting Lyn and a little birdie told me she was busy creating a freebie from her favorite kit of Keystone Scraps.

Day 2 Day: January. The 1st in a Brand New Series!

I have exciting new series for all you pocket scrappers… and anyone that loves a coordinated yearbook!!. Day 2 Day is a brand new series with a new page kit for each month, along with some themed Mini Packs.  Everything will be in a cohesive color palette… so the carrot on your snowman’s nose will be the same color orange as the pumpkins in October!!  I know I love having everything perfectly coordinated and photo albums are no exception!  

The first in the series is Day 2 Day: January. This new pocket style collection is for scrapping New Year and winter photos. These are just perfect for dropping into a pocket page or to embellish your traditional scrap layouts. Take a look!



You’ll see there are some colors that are not in Day 2 Day January in the coordinating cardstock pack.  That’s because its a single large color palette that will stretch through the entire series!  So think of this as a preview of all the other pretty colors to come!


You can get the Cardstock FREE when you pick up the January Bundle!


Are you running short on time?? Need to get caught up with your P52/P365 project??  Then what about these fun Quickpages!!



Take a look at the great LOs the creative team made this week!

Getting to Know Keystone Scraps CT team, their Favorite Kits, and a Freebie for you!

Welcome to our Meet the Creative Team Series.  With the new year, the CT saw a few new faces come aboard the already talented group of ladies that is on the Keystone Scraps creative team.   We wanted you to get to know a little  of the creative mind behind the scenes.  So lets start with one of the team members who has been around since Keystone Scraps Began.  It is time to get to know:

Melissa  aka Honeybee

How long you have been working with Keystone Scraps and what is your position on the creative team?

I have been with Keystone Scraps since it’s conception.  Originally Paula and I started Keystone Scraps together.  I left to pursue other interests after one year and Paula took it from there.  And wow how she has taken Keystone to a whole other level.  Currently I am the (I guess official) VicePres (Paula’s sidekick and my sister from another mister) and also Ad/Marketing Manager.  I am happy to still be apart of Keystone Scraps in some way and and so happy for Paula’s success.  What she has done for this little idea we had …. is just amazing.

Tell us one thing about you! it can be scrapped related or not, it could be something funny, or anything you just want people to know.

I am also a Web Designer/Graphic Designer for a Neon Clock Company and have freelanced as a Graphic Designer for the last ten years doing everything from web design, logo design and book and publication design and printing. Previously I worked in the Health Care field for 12 years as a Phlebotomist.

What is your favorite kit that you have worked with from Keystone Scraps? 

Key to Happiness.

Melissa has used Key to Happiness for many of her layouts.  This is her must have and go to kit.  Out of the all the layouts she has created with Key To Happiness, this is the one layout she loves the most

Want some more inspiration from Key To Happiness?  Check out the Key to Happiness Pinterest Board.  But before you run off to look, Melissa was happy for the chance to play with Key To Happiness again and she put together this amazing freebie for you!  Just click on the image to download it. You can find Key To Happiness in Keystone Scraps Gingerscraps store.

We hope you enjoy the Facebook Timeline Cover Melissa created for you, and make sure you stop back by on Jan 30th to meet CT member Lyn and see what she has for you!  Have a Wonderful Weekend! (325)
