IT’S NSD!!!!

 It’s NSD weekend once more and boy am I sleepy! :) Shall we get to the magic?

There’s so much stuff going on at The Lilypad this weekend – games, challenges, prizes, and of course – THE STOREWIDE SALE! You can find out about all of it by visiting our special NSD forum HERE

I’ve got a whole new collection in store and on sale! May 2017 BYOC is bright & bold and definitely one of my favorites.

  • Wink: Alphabets includes a dainty little collection of floral, shimmer, and solid plastic alphabets

  • Wink: Sticky Tape includes 14 BRIGHT bits of transparent tape (my favorite tape. ever.)

  • Wink: Journal Cards includes a fancy collection of 3×4 & 4×6 pocket cards with lots of alternates.

  • Wink: Extras Trio includes the alphabet, tape, and cards for one itty bitty price!

  • Wink: Elements includes a huge variety of 85+ embellishments to decorate your pages with

  • Wink: Patterns & Backgrounds is a hefty collection of bold and happy papers, including 23 alternate color ways!

NSD means it’s time for a new SUPER SPECIAL MINI BUNDLE!!!! SSMB 4.0 includes 30 various packs of all sorts of things. Many of them never before released! This year’s bundle includes a variety of elements, alphabets, papers, and minis – some past freebies, some leftover parts from kits – there’s even 2 full sets of previously unreleased For the Love of 2016 paper packs!

Also back for the weekend are SUPER SPECIAL MINI BUNDLES 1 – 3!

Grab them up now for just $2 – they’ll disappear again when NSD is over. :)

Speaking of leftover bits…. I’ve got a couple of elements, papers, and an entire alphabet that didn’t make it, as well as an entire pack of solids that I forgot to upload :) GRAB THEM HERE

And if you’ve made it this far, you deserve to be rewarded…. here’s a coupon code good for an extra 10% off orders over $5 good today and tomorrow –  10OVER5

*UPDATE – the above coupon will not work for MPM add-ons. They are entered into the store differently so here goes (it’s overly complicated but I have no way around it – sorry!)



If you are trying to purchase a FLING add-on AND an add-on from an earlier collection you’ll have to check out separately. Because of that, I’ve removed the minimum purchase amount from the MPM coupons.

IT’S HEEEERE!!! DSD 2016!!!



Okay, I have SO much to share with you! Besides a crazy storewide sale of 30% off, I have a collab with an amazing designer, a FWP, a Pick a Prize chance x2, several bundles, and new products, too! Wowza. 


Let’s kick this off with the collab….


I was so excited to get to work with LBW again! She is spectacularly talented. This peppy planner collection includes 2 full print ready sticker sheets with cut files (with different box sizes!), 5 tabbed dividers (that are awesome!), grocery list insert, weekly list insert, month on 2 page inserts, and week on 2 page inserts…. all for FOUR popular planner sizes with a focus on versatile, everyday life planning! I love the mix of our styles and I know you won’t be disappointed. 

And I had so much fun with this that I kept going! 
folder$2.56 $3.65 (save 30%)

With a ton of alternate color ways included, this pack goes on

well past 24 hours. Includes a happy mix of 3×4 and 4×6 cards.

folder$2.56 $3.65 (save 30%)

The Another 24 Hours patterns & backgrounds are great for traditional
scrapbooking (both digi and hybrid) but I was also extra careful with pattern and
scale because I wanted these to also work effortlessly
as planner dividers, covers, etc. Includes 30 total papers!

So that covers the new goodies…. ready for DSD specific madness? Because I’ve got lots. Super Special Mini Bundles 1 through 3 are back on only $2 each throughout the DSD sale:

ssmballAll 3 bundles are only around throughout the sale so grab them fast because they each include more that 20 mini packs and are an exceptional deal. :)

And brand new for this DSD only:


That is all my BYOC journal cards packs from October 2015 through September 2016 for $6. WHAT?! Follow the link and check out the total contents because all together this bundle, with a years worth of seasons and themes and subjects, includes OVER 290 JOURNAL CARDS!!! 

Did you see this weekends Free With Purchase? Of Wishes, Hopes, and Dreams Part 2 is overflowing with dreamy goodness and is yours for free with any $15 purchase. (it’s so pretty – I love this palette!)  And if you happened to miss Part 1 from the blog hop you can grab it this weekend for just $5

Lastly….. How about a little Dreamy freebie?


So, there you have it. In between shopping rampages check out the TLP DSD forum for A POLLY CALL, challenges, fun, and the return of Pick Your Prize threads! You can find mine HERE – one winner will be chosen at random to receive the prize of their choosing! Additionally, I will choose a random winner, too. That’s 2x the chance to PICK YOUR PRIZE!


DSD pt.2


Hello again!!! Are we having fun yet?? Good!

One of the best parts of NSD/DSD at TLP is Special Saturday releases! Which today meant Super Special Mini Bundle 3.0 was released. Let’s take a closer look…

preIsn’t it pretty?

30+ mini packs… former freebies, former fwp parts, former charity kit contributions, things that were never even released. All in one huge bundle and this weekend, before it disappears until May, it’s just $3. Want a better look at some of it’s contents?

Hello Goodbye Cards
Take a gander at these cards above… They were a part one of my contribution to the MSA Farewell collab. Seven 3×4 journal cards COMPLETE with tons of alternates AND bleed/no bleed AND texture/no texture versions. These would have been added to my store for $3. 

Be Free

These shiny pretties were my part of a charity collab some months ago. SEVEN full alphabets (with special characters)…. these would have been added to my store for $3.25

BrilliantI love this mini. The whole Brilliant collab was gorgeous! 9 solid papers, 6 patterns, a journal card in 2 color ways, 5 little doodles, 10+ elements, 2 bits of word art… this would have been added to my store for $3.50


Sigh… these gummy little alphabets are so cute. Why didn’t I release them in the Random Tricks Trio? No earthly idea. I made two alphabets and the other alpha looked more appropriate in the trio. Which means that the Random Tricks: Leftover Candy alpha pack (6 tasty alphabet!) can only be found in Super Special Mini Bundle 3.0!! It’s never been released or offered elsewhere. Had it been released in my store on it’s own it would have been $3.25 

That’s just 4 of the packs included in SSMB3.0 – 4 packs that would have totaled $13 on their own – and there’s dozens more packs included! And don’t miss Super Special 1 & 2, each just $2:










Now go shop! Lilypad is filled with New Releases right now, all 30% off…. (there’s an extra 10% coupon one post back)

These three new For the Love of 2014 packs are so much fun! I love sticker alphabets in real life and in digiland, too, so it seemed important that this years collection would have some. And in 11 colors, too!! The polka dots are huge – big enough to anchor a cluster to or to decorate your background. I made them for me and though it couldn’t hurt to share. :) And who doesn’t need 30 brightly colored triangular papers? You can get each for just $2.40 this weekend OR you can grab all three for just $4.80 right now with For the Love of 2014 Bundle 4:

Size Doesn’t Matter…

Can you believe it’s almost September? Can you believe I’m old enough to have two 7th graders? Worse? I’m also old enough to have a Freshman. Worse than that? I’m old enough to have a SOPHOMORE!!!! Holy hell. No wrinkles yet. I’ll take it.

Bloggy_--what’s new--_2FOLDER

The 6th in the collection, Reasonably Sized Alpha includes a single case bunch of letters and some symbols. And it is, indeed, extremely reasonable.

Storewide sale and the coolest grab bag E.V.E.R.

Don’t miss that!!!! Don’t forget there are new products at the end of my store from before I moved everything over!!

Now on to the coolest grab bag I’ve ever, ever made – part of it collaborating with my super artistic daughter Montana (who I’ll be featuring on my blog this weekend!)This Halloween-esque treat bag is filled with FIVE FULL SIZED PRODUCTS!!! The price for this as a grab bag is crazy and works out to $1 per product! Eventually it’ll be broken up but for now it’s all together and dirt cheap.

Want to know what’s in it??

  • Maniacal Monograms – a full glittering alpha with letters, numbers, and a couple of symbols…. each a bit over 3 inches tall!  (reg. $2.75)
  • Pumpkin Head Stamps – a set of nine dripping pumpkin faces plus a glittering version of each (reg. $2.50)
  • Hot Scary Mess – a scarier version of the popular Hot Mess collection including 8 super hot, super scary, and super messy papers (reg. $3.00)
  • Goth Girls – I asked my own resident goth girl to dummy down her amazing artwork and give me a scribbly half hazard set of spooky illustrations and she delivered. Includes a variety of brushes/stamps and paper elements, some with colored versions, too! (reg. $3.75)
  • Goth Girls: the Papers – Possibly my favorite paper pack ever, these old stained papers are adorned by some of the above illustrations and include 8 seriously unique background papers (reg. $3.00)
