    Our friend and resident designer, Dawn Inskip, passed away on July 5th. Dawn was a much beloved artist and dear friend who is already greatly missed. The Lilypad community and the wider digital scrapbooking industry have come together to create heartsong, a beautiful collab in her memory. The kit is on sale for only $5.00 and 100% of the proceeds will go to a memorial bench in Dawn's name at a local nature sanctuary as well as to the British Heart Foundation. At this time, Dawn's family has decided to have a store closing sale. Take 50% off Dawn's entire store, excluding M3 main kits, through the month of August.

    I just bought this collab and unzipped it and it's gorgeous! I like to think that Dawn knows how much she is missed and I hope that she feels loved and honored.

    I just unzipped all of the files and that kit is beautiful and awesome! I'm about to go to bed and will really digest all of it in the morning, but I love what I've looked at! It's a big kit for only $5!! I was so moved, as I was unzipping and looking in each file, at the different designers names on the elements, papers, etc. What a lovely tribute to Dawn. We'll all miss her so much.

    Thank you for making such an awesome collab available at a price that makes it accessible to all.
    I love the way the digi community looks after their own.
    Dawn will be missed.

    I love that collab and can't wait to use it! I also picked a collection from her store that really spoke to me.. I am very sad about her store closing, but we all knew this would come ☹️

    Yes, I immediately put the collab in my cart. Like, how can I not?
    I also bought 3 bundles by Dawn because I just couldn't not and I don't want them to be gone...
    Closing the store was unavoidable but still a slight surprised for me. I completely understand too, though...

    Beautiful tribute and collection. I am so glad that there is going to be a memorial bench for Dawn, in the sanctuary where her daughter Carly works.. she would love that. I miss you my dear Dawn. I am still having such a hard time with this. Hugs to all and Thank you Laura @lmccandless & designers for doing this.

    I grabbed it yesterday when I saw it in the shop while perusing the 50% off sale. I've already used it and will use it as often as I can. It's beautiful!
