Hello everyone :) Hope this post finds you all good and doing well. I'll keep it short and sweet this week so those of you on holiday vacations can get back to fun times with your family's. Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter this week. I am very excited to introduce to you the next 4 installments of the "Many Seasons" mini kit series. And here they are:
Many Seasons Vol. 5 by River~Rose

Many Seasons Vol. 8 by River~Rose

Have a look at these gorgeous layouts by the River~Rose Creative Artists using a few different selections of the Many Seasons kits:

Here is an extra special offer I am excited to tell you about also! Have you heard of the Funky Club yet? Check out the ad below and find out about it and the special offer from the participating designers:

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: Subscribe to The Funky Club Volume Two Between DECEMBER 22 and JANUARY 4 and receive a $5.00 coupon to EACH of our participating designers' personal stores at Funky

With a subscription to The Funky Club - Volume Two, you will receive sixteen mini-kits, one per week from January 5 through April 20, 2011. These mini-kits will be designed on a rotating basis by: Girl Boy Girl Designs by Jen Balding, Amanda Carlson, River~Rose and Ruby Lane.
The contents of the mini-kits will be a surprise (much like a grab bag), but each mini-kit will contain at LEAST two papers and two elements. Additional items will vary from mini-to-mini and they may even include templates! All items in the mini-kits will be personal use products that will work in any photo editing program.

Many Seasons Collection in store now :)

Happy Friday to everyone! Keeping it short and sweet this week so I can spend more time trying to put my house together for the Christmas holiday which is fast approaching! I have a new collection in store (the start of this collection anyway) and I am so excited about it, I could hardly wait to share :D So without further delay, here is the details:

Many Seasons is a series of mini kits all with a different and unique color pallet and element sets. The meaning of this series is to have a collection of kits on hand that will match your moods, life events and much more without an actual theme because we all know that life has "Many Seasons" and you should have a kit to match each one.
All kits include 8, 12x12 papers which are 300dpi and jpg format. Each kit also promises to include 18 unique elements in png format and always 300dpi.
You may use these kits in your personal and/or scrap for hire projects. Please read the River~Rose TOU for further information.

Be sure to watch for more of the "Many Seasons" series.

And here they are at only $1.75 each here at Funky Playground Designs

And that's it, have a wonderful weekend! I will see you back here next Monday :D

Don’t Forget!

How is everyone this fine Monday morning?  The weather here is beautiful today, if not a little bit chilly.  Needless to say, it’s starting to feel like winter!  So, the collab that River Rose and Amanda Carlson put together is coming at a perfect time!  Don’t forget that you can win it for FREE!  All you have to do is go to THIS post, leave a comment, then click the link to go to Amanda’s blog and leave a comment.  Then you will be entered to be one of TWO winners to get their gorgeous wintery kit for FREE!

River Rose has also recently participated in a charity collab that is raising money for a great cause.  Here is the information about that:

The season of giving, gratitude and joy upon us. It is also often a very busy and hectic time of the year, creating a challenge for those of us with lengthy To-Do lists. However, no matter how busy we all get, it really is important to remember that when it comes to charity, Every Little Bit Counts. To demonstrate this simple truth, a call went out across the digital community to designers everywhere inviting them each to contribute only one element to a charity collaboration for the Sick Kids Foundation. The end result is an eclectic collection of unique elements, ranging from classic to quirky and everything in between.

The Every Little Bit Counts collection will only be available until the last week of December. 100% of the profits will then be donated to the Sick Kids Hospital Foundation. Find out how you can receive this very special collection for only $5 and let your little bit count towards this very worthy cause.

See you back here soon!
