Running out of design time? Check out these two time savers!

Happy Friday to you! 

Here in the US we are about to kick off a three day weekend and I couldn't be more excited!  We have three picnics planned (attending 2, throwing 1) and lots of projects to cram in.  Memorial Day weekend always feels like the official start to summer to me - I think because we open our pool and start spending a lot more time outdoors.  Do you have big plans for the weekend?

This time of year always feels like the days go fast because we are trying to soak up every second of summer fun.  My kids only have 20 short days of school left and I'm trying hard to get ahead on my design work.  Sound like the story of your life too? Might be a great time to pick up some new goodies to help you get your work done faster - so you can have more time to play!  Check out my newest pattern overlay set below or save some time with my *PNG Layer Saver Action!  If you make png files for your layered templates this is a MUST have action!  Oh, it works great if you make layered paper templates too :)

PNG Layer Saver 2

* Please note, this action will work on a Mac, but it requires more manual interaction on your part.  You will need to point the action to the folder it needs to save to and you may need to type file names.  If you would like a test version of this action to try on your Mac, please email me at

New to the Market:

Designers I'm sure you know how challenging it can be to find good floral paper patterns.  This new set of Floral Patterns are layered (one layer per color), making it super easy for you to customize for your kits. Speed up your design process by clipping your swatch colors to each layer adding some great textures and brushwork for a perfect paper! 

They are on sale for 20% off right now.  DYK, newsletter subscribers get coupons for extra discounts on most new releases!  If you want them too - you should sign up here!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Have you recovered yet?

Hello everyone! 
Have you recovered from iNSD?  Have you finished organizing all of your goodies?  I want to thank everyone so much who supported Happy Scrap Girl Designs this past week!  I appreciate you more than you know!
I have some new things for you today - if you have any hard drive space left of course!  And if you are a designer, be sure to check out my tut how you can help your customers organize their purchases - it's especially helpful to them after big sales!

By the way, did you know that I almost always have a coupon code for my newsletter subscribers to save a little extra?  And each newsletter has Subscriber Rewards  - where a few lucky subscribers win their pick of prices! 

New to the Market:
This week I'm adding the Techno Geek pieces to the Market - if you missed them during iNSD, you can grab them now for 20% off. 
Love these new journal cards - which one is your favorite?

I'm also releasing Roots & Leaves this week!  This mini used to be part of an SO Mega and is now available in the shop. 
and here is a coordinating paper pack in basic patterns you can use again and again!

My awesome CT whipped up some pages with these beauties. 
This one is by Fran, I just love how balanced everything is and I adore the little banner that she made to match!!  Beautiful page Fran! 

And this one is from Shari.  The photo is so beautiful and these friends look so happy.  I love how she wrote on the postcard and she used a great trick to really make the washi look like it's on the photo and the paper. 

You can click on either page to leave some love for these ladies in the gallery!  Thanks Shari & Fran!


Have a great weekend everyone!
