It's time for October's Pickle Barrel Promo at PBP! This month I created a collection called "Solitude". I remember when my kids were little that some days, I just prayed I'd get five minutes of peace and quiet. Lol, now that I don't have any kids at home, I miss those chaotic days. This is the perfect collection to scrap what you do during your own quiet time, or pages about the lack of solitude :) Lol, and don't worry, if you're missing it now, it won't last forever, and you'll miss those crazy, noisy days!
I have a fun collection of products in my 6-Pack again this month! ONE CLICK BUYS ALL SIX AND gives you the FREE GOODIES! This month I'm giving a FREE Mini Add-On Kit with the purchase of my 6-Pack! (The mini kit is included in the 6-Pack download, so you don't have to add it to your cart or use a coupon code!)
Here's a closer look at my 6-Pack - this is a value of $21.94 for ONLY $6! Grab this one quick - the Pickle Barrel starts today and ends promptly at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 21!
Here's the freebie that you get when you purchase my Solitude 6-Pack. It includes 6 papers, 1 finial border, 4 flowers, 2 leaf designs, 2 frames, 3 journaling cards and 3 wordart designs in 2 styles each.
All Pickle Barrel Products are still available individually, so if you prefer to shop that way, you can. Check out my individual packs below (but remember that if you want the FREE Mini Sampler Pack, you have to buy the 6-Pack!)
I have to admit that I wasn't very excited about working with these colors...until I started designing. Once I started, I couldn't stop! I have four fun little coordinating packs that I'm offering during the Pickle Barrel in a bundle at 40% off of the regular price (the individual packsare discounted 25%).
And, as an added bonus, if you use the code shown on the graphic below when you buy the Solitude Add-on Bundle, you'll save an additional 10% on that product!
Here's a closer look at the packs that are in the add-on bundle.
If you spend $12 on Pickle Barrel Packs this month, you will get this beautiful Pickle Barrel Bonus Kit FREE!
I really love what my Creative Team did with this kit. They're amazing!
Thanks to all of you who bought my new calendars! The lucky winner of the $25 Calendar Printing Gift Certificate from Persnickety Prints is:

It took me a while, but I finally got my 2014 Large Format Calendars Done. I've partnered with Persnickety Prints and they have generously provided a $25 Calendar Printing Gift Certificate for me to give away! YAY!! Isn't that just perfect for this set of designs? :) All you have to do is buy one of my new, large format calendars, and you're entered in the drawing (see details on graphic below). Persnickety Prints has also provided a coupon code for all of my customers to save 20% on calendar printing (8 1/2" x 11" & 12" x 12" only). The code wil be in the zip files when you download the calendar (details below). I hope you'll give them a try for your printing needs! I print all of my 12x12 layouts with them, and LOVE the results. Their calendars are just as beautiful!
My new calendars are available in 3 sizes - Portrait (8 1/2" x 11"), Landscape (11" X 8 1/2") and Square (12" x 12")
The main images above only show the photo pages (which can be used for your scrapbook layouts/quick pages, too!), but there are matching grids (completed & blank), dates (for both Sun-Sat & Mon-Sun format), days of the week (Sun-Sat & Mon-Sun format), month wordart, title strips and clusters included in each download. So, you can use the premade quick pages & completed grids to put together a quick calendar (US Format Sun-Sat), or use the blank grids to create a custom calendar. You can choose which design goes with each month so that it matches the seasons where you live!
Here's a closer look at the quick pages & grids for the Portrait Calendar. The designs are basically the same for all formats. To see the detailed images for the other calendar sizes, just click the images above or head to my shop.
Be sure to buy one (or more) of my new calendars before October 9 to be entered into the drawing to win the $25 Calendar Printing Gift Certificate from Persnickety Prints! When you download the zip files for the calendar, be sure to download the FayetteDesigns-ImportantStuff.zip file - that's where you'll find the coupon code to save 20% on your Calendar Printing at Persnickety Prints!
I talked to Chari at Persnickety Prints, and you can upload your calendar photo pages to their calendar templates in their shop (choose the full photo version, and then upload your pages there). Unfortunately, I don't believe there's a way to print my cute calendar grids on the bottom half. *sigh* However, they provide some basic grids, so they'll still be really cute. Be sure to give them a try!
Since I'm focusing on calendars today, I decided to put my Pocket Calendars and BIGwords Calendar on sale, too. However, the purchase of these calendars will not qualify you to win the Persnickety Prints GC. Also, the 20% coupon code is not available for printing the Pocket Calendars, since they don't offer that format yet.
So, you have no excuses for not getting an early start on the calendars you were going to make for Christmas :) LOTS of options...get busy and have fun!
NOW...the moment you've all been waiting for. I'm giving away TWO calendars to some lucky scrappers who left comments on my blog. Read below to see who the winners are!
