Happy Happy {i}NSD!!  I hope that everyone is well and enjoying a happy and scrappy day today enjoying all the fun on blogs, and in the stores and forums!!  And I hope that you get to enjoy some time scrapping your stories this weekend too!

This weekend is one that not only celebrates this hobby and storytelling journey I love so much, it is also the anniversary of my design debut!  This time last year marked the beginning of Zinnias and Swallowtails and I am SO very grateful for all the support and inspiration I have received from all of you along the way!  Thank you!

There is SO much to share today so I’ll dive right in!!  I have some {fresh seeds} share and some blog hoppy {free seed} goodness too!

You may have found your way here from Laura’s blog as you travel the fabulous DSA iNSD blog train but if you’ve missed a spot or lost your way, you can head to the DigiScrapAddicts forum to find the complete list and start fresh.

Or you may be visiting today as part of the amazing hoppity hop-ness of The Lilypad blog hop.  In which case you probably found your way here after visiting Krista’s blog.  If you get missed a stop on the TLP hop or have lost your way you can find a complete list {HERE}.

Either way there are a bevvy of amazing freebies to snag today and I’m so happy to share a little something with you too!

I was inspired by all things fresh and sunny and celebratory to create something fun and versatile.  I so hope you like it!  You can {download here} or click on the image below.

Your next stop on The DSA {i}NSD train is Live Your Stories which is home to my dear Crystal where she has a couple fabulous somethings for you today! Don’t forget if you’ve missed a spot or lost your way on the DSA train, you can head to the DigiScrapAddicts forum to find the complete list and start fresh.

Your next stop on The Lilypad hop is Rebecca’s blog.  I know you’ll love what she has to share too!  And remember if you get missed a stop on the TLP hop or have lost your way you can find a complete list {HERE}.

And now on to even more {i}NSD fantasticness…

I have two, nay three amazing collaborations coming to The Lilypad today!  And I hope that you will find they are just what you need to help you scrap all the amazing goodies you are snagging this weekend!

One year ago, NSD marked my designing debut and I celebrated with the support and cooperation of my dear friend Crystal as we released a special template-only grab bag together.  And we thought it would be fun to revisit the grab baggy spirit and fun!  So I’m happy to present the 2nd Annual {i}NSD Grab Bag collaboration from Zinnias and Swallowtails and Crystal Livesay.  This is a versatile set of 8 layered templates inspired by layers and a play with paper.

And here is a full reveal of what you will find inside this fun little grab bag:

You can grab this bag o’ templatey goodness in my store for $3 throughout the weekend.  After this time it will return to it’s original price of $9.

Here is a spot of grab bag inspiration:

I have also teamed up with the ever amazing Amy Martin to create a set of templates inspired by the process of moving, packing and unpacking.  We always have fun collaborating together and this set was no exception.

Meet Packed, a set of 10 layered templates created in the spirit of  tighter, layery, stacky compositions:

And Unpacked, a complementing set of 10 templates created in the spirit of  airier, looser compositions in mind:

You can also grab the bundle, Packed and Unpacked to enjoy the full set of 20 templates.

And here’s some amazing Packed and Unpacked inspiration:

And lastly, Amy and I have created this fun set of Thankful cards, which are perfect for creating heartfelt custom thank{full} greetings for those people in your lives whom you’d like to shower with thanks!

And don’t forget to check out all the fresh goodness at the Pad for this month’s BYOC.

As always I looove to see your stories and art too, so please feel free to share with me anytime.  Just shoot me a mail or share them on my facebook page.  And if you haven’t signed up  the newsletter yet you may want to do that so you can be the first to hear the latest news and get the latest exclusive savings.

    I am so grateful for templates. Without them I would be lost as a digital scrapper. I am in awe of your versatile method of categorization, as it let the buyer know its basic layout. I just love your unpack templates and would find them after I had blown my medical budget for the month. I will have to join your newsletter and hope for a later discount. Thanks for your lovely gift. (I had not intended to talk so long, but could not resist.)
