#2018 May {NEW}

Be ready for some seriously gorgeous scrapping packs to call your name until they find their way into your scrapping stash.  I believe you’ll fall in love with Connie’s newest collection as much as the team and I have! 

cap_2018MayBundle

Just seeing the bundle preview doesn’t do justice to this collection so here’s an up close and personal look at what you will get in the Bundle (or separate packs if you really just want to build your own bundle but I can’t resist all the goodies that come in the convenient bundle set!).

Absolutely stunning, isn’t it?  I drool every single time I get a glimpse of this collection.  Looking for some way to add a quick title?  Connie has a beautiful coordinating Alpha pack as well as a fun Word Art pack that you can add to your mega stash.

You only have a few days left to pick up any of the Retiring Products before Connie takes them down from her stores to make room for more new goodies.  Don’t become part of the “If only I had picked up ….” club!

Today’s freebie is a cluster that I made using Connie’s #2018 February collection.  I’m hoping to have a chance to play with the new collection this weekend and make a few more freebies for you.  Enjoy today’s Cluster Freebie!

Sunday Sneak Peek

What a beautiful (albeit chilly) day it is outside where I am.  I love seeing the plants full of beautiful green leaves and flowers.  The sight brings me a sense of renewal and hope for the days to come.  I hope your week has started off well and that you are enjoying some time with those you care about.

Today I have a sneak peek at what Connie has coming your way on Thursday.  This one took my breath away and I think it might do the same to you.

cap_2018MaySneak

I am looking forward to the full reveal on Thursday!  Aren’t the colors in the sneak peek luscious?!  Be sure to check back here Thursday to see more and also to see some layout inspiration from Connie’s talented Creative Team.

If you would like a chance to win this week’s new release, head over to Club Connie Prince on Facebook and leave a comment on the sneak peek post.  One lucky fan will win this kit on Thursday!

I did a little bit of research yesterday about the downloading issue a few of you mentioned when you’ve tried to pick up the freebies we offer here on the blog.  I’m not sure what is going on exactly and I’ve been unable to reproduce the error that some of you have been seeing.  However, the more I read on different technology sites that come up with the key words you have posted from the error message it sounds like it may have to do with your cookies and cache from your browser.  The best suggestion I have seen has been to clear your cookies and your cache settings in your browser.  As I said yesterday though, I’m not an expert, so do some research before you try anything if you are unfamiliar with what I’m talking about.  Clearing your cookies and cache won’t hurt anything but you may have to type in your passwords on various websites the first time you visit once you do this.

On to today’s freebie!  I was playing around with Connie’s Farmhouse kit and wanted a frame that was a bit different than what was in the kit.  So I combined some of her papers and ink bits to make one that was perfect for what I wanted.  I thought I’d share it with you along with a cluster frame I created with the frame.  I hope you can use this on a project of your own!

Possible Solution for those of you with Freebie download issues

Okay, so I’ve done a little research tonight (after spending all day on a field trip on Saturday with my students) on the problem a few of you have mentioned about getting a “too many redirects” error message when you try to download the freebies Connie graciously gives away here on the blog.  Let me first say this, I’m not a technology specialist.  I don’t know a whole lot about what works on the backend of most things.  I may be totally wrong so proceed at your own risk.

From the comments that have been left, it appears that those of you who have been having issues are using Safari.  Safari sometimes doesn’t like to play nice with others.  This solution was found on several different websites but I’m only linking to one that seemed the most straight forward: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203370.  Connie is not connected with this website and neither am I. 

Basically it sounds like your cookies and cache may be part of the culprit as well.  It use to be common practice to clear those once a month as well as defragmenting a computer.  Those practices seem to have fallen by the wayside over the past few years but I do know that my computer runs better when I clear my cache and cookies and do a disk defrag every now and then.  Maybe try doing those two things first and then if you are still having problems check out the link above or so a search for “too many redirects error message in Safari.” 

I hope this helps some of you.  I do apologize but that’s about the extent of my ability to solve what’s going on.  I haven’t been able to recreate the error on my end using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.  I didn’t try any other browsers because I’m not currently running any others.
