Savings & Freebies Ahead! UPDATED 8/29

**Read Below for update on With Envy Parties free gift with purchase**

Oh September is right around the corner!! I don't know in general why I'm excited, my daughter has another year before kindergarten so there really aren't any big milestones (well she is turning 5 but she isn't leaving me for the big school just yet). I think I'm excited because September is kind of the start of holiday time in a way. Especially for a business owner people start buying for Halloween in September (or before) so you have to be ready. 

I'm excited for what this time will bring and I'm hoping it helps to increase my ability to continue on this self employment journey...fingers crossed!!


With September comes LOTS of new products and also LOTS of ways to SAVE and get FREE stuff. I'm a frugal person in real life, so I am one who loves a good sale or freebie, so I like to pass that on to you. 

With all the new I decided to breakdown how things will work starting Sept 1st. I'm hoping you guys will like these opportunities.


*I already posted this on Facebook and its in full swing at With Envy Papers. I updated my coupon codes and replaced my Buy?Get? promotion with a straight discount depending on how much you spending. The discount goes up to 50% off your order if you spending $40. 

*I will be adding something similar to With Envy Babies starting September. 

*Currently at With Envy Parties, you receive 15% off your order if you purchase 4 or more pdf files in a single order (party collections count as 1 pdf). Also there are discounts for purchasing multiple pdfs of a particular item. These promotions won't change.


*For With Envy Paper & With Envy Babies I will be creating a Monthly FREE item with purchase (different item for each shop). I will preview the free item on the last Friday before the new month. So this Friday I will be previewing the Free items for September. 

Free items will be emailed to the email address you have connected to your Etsy account, unless you specify otherwise, If a file is too big to email I will send a link to download. 

*I decided to change the way I am doing the free gift with purchase for With Envy Parties. Because of the varied nature of the products I thought it would easier to have one set free item based on the item you purchase. For example, if you purchase any invitation from my shop you will get a free thank you card. Each listing will list the item you get for free. 

*Free item will be emailed, all free items are digital items.

*As I create new items for the holidays, I will be doing a giveaway for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day etc. (not sure about Thanksgiving yet). Because I sell 3 different types of items, each giveaway will have 3 prizes and 3 winners. The prizes will include my newest Holiday themed items. 


*I am part of the Etsy Digital Designer Team. Its a great group of designers that either create digital items or use digital items in the creation of their products. I love this group, everyone is sooo talented and helpful. I have learned so much since joining earlier this month!
The group has several promotions that I will be participating in and most result in free items being offered by myself and lots of other designers. 

Currently there is a Monthly Color Challenge that I participated in. We are all given the same color pallet and we can create items for our shop, or freebies, or both. I am doing both. I missed the first one which is wrapping up now but Septembers theme is Back to School. I created a paper pack and alphabet set (took forever but love the result). I also created a freebie which I will reveal along with all the other designer's items on Sept 1st or 2nd (I can't remember the exact date). 


I will also have random sales and offer random freebies when the mood strikes but I wanted to at least share the concrete ones for you guys. I will tweak and change things if needed or if interest changes. 

Also check out my new FREE ITEMS Page here on the blog I will be listing all the freebies I offer there. I am still working on adding everything. 

Also I have a Freebie section on the FB page with FB exclusive freebies!

Happy Wednesday!!
