Digital Scrapbooking Day Sale and New Goodies!


Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day! Our sale at Scrap Orchard starts a little bit early! From October 31-November 4 our entire store is 30% off. And if you spend $10 or more, you’ll save 35%. Spend $20 or more and you’ll save 40%!! I also have an coupon code for you to save an additional 10% on anything HERE in my Scrap Orchard Store!

Additional 10% Discount Coupon Code for Kristin Aagard Designs: KA-DSD10

Here is what you will find new from me in the shop! I have A LOT of new products in the store today which are included in the discount sale! And as a bonus, each product comes with a Free with Purchase bonus!

Little Monster (Includes Little Stinker, Free with Purchase!)

Sporty: Football (Includes Sporty: Alpha 1, Free with Purchase!)

CU Fall Foliage 2 (Includes CU Fall Foliage 3, Free with Purchase!)

I have a two year old son who has perfected the fine art of pitching a fit! I also find that during the holidays, my kids tend to get a little overwhelmed and I end up catching photos of those meltdowns. I decided to create Little Monster to scrap those pictures! I hope you like it! You can combine it with the coordinating Little Stinker Add-On to add a little variety to your pages!

In an attempt to keep the images to a minimum, I am posting only a few layout examples today. My Creative Team has outdone themselves with layouts for these products, so I hope you will click over to my shop and take a look!


I had the opportunity this month to work with one of my very favorite designers, Fiddle-Dee-Dee! We created another product to add to our Sporty Collection. Sporty: Football and Fuss Free: Sporty {Football} Templates are now available at Scrap Orchard! Fiddle-Dee-Dee created these templates to specifically coordinate with the papers and elements included in in the Sporty: Football kit. Her templates make scrapping your pages a breeze and I highly recommend them! As a bonus, when you purchase the Sporty: Football Kit, you’ll get the Sporty: Alpha Add-On 1 for free!
