Happy fresh month.  Happy BYOC.  Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day.  Happy Happy.  So very much to be happy about!  This time of year is one of my most favorite.  I just adore the cooler weather, the celebration of creativity, the bubbling anticipation for the holiday season that is just around the corner.  And the sense of gratitude that covers it all.

And the beginning of November is FULL of all of that.  This month’s Build Your Own Collab at The Lilypad is another stellar collection. It is a burst of color and warm and creativity.

I was inspired to get crafty to create a fresh set of Petals page borders.  This Petals collection is a colorful, warm, happy, and paper-y collection of hand-crafted layered paper borders/mats. Petals no. 4 {mixed media} features 18 different mixed media layered paper borders. There are tissue borders, painted borders, chevron borders, scallop borders, stitched borders, fabric borders in a variety of colors. No two are the same and none are re-colored. Use them alone or layer them to create custom mats and trims.

Also fresh is Helenium.  I was inspired by the bevvy of *gorgeous* papers in the BYOC collection to create these page designs designed in the spirit of play with paper and layers.

And then there is the Stargazer {confetti}.  I have deep love for scattery bits and for mist and painty goodness.  And so this collection of confetti marries the two into a fun burst of speckle-y, misted scatters.

All three new BYOC releases are available for 30% off through Monday 5 November. Subscribers to The Journal receive an additional 10% savings.

But wait!  There’s more!  It is Digital Scrapbooking Day, after all, and so I have a little something extra to celebrate.

My dear friend Crystal and I have been teaming up for various projects for three years now and one of our favorites has always been the DSD grab bag.  We thought it would be fun to revisit the grabbaggy spirit and fun once again with this, our Third Annual DSD Grab Bag.

This grab bag — featuring 8 page designs and regularly priced at $9.00 — is available for only $3 this DSD weekend only.

And here is a spot of Petals no. 4 {mixed media}, Helenium, Stargazer and Grab Bag inspiration:

Wow, right?!
