• August Challenges?

    Hey guys, if you hadn’t guessed by now we are taking a break from the usual challenges through August. I am just so crazy busy right now, with my regular job, running my business, volunteer work, wedding planning  and actually trying to have some kind of social life in amongst that… So when my laptop had a major tantrum on me a while back, I just haven’t gotten around to properly fixing it and restoring all my lost data. But I’m working on it now, pinkie promise…. So not only do I hope to have the regular challenges back next month, I also hope to FINALLY have a new kit release. SOOO looking forward to that and getting back on top of things (now that I’ve declared it to the world I’ve GOT to do it)!!!

    Before I go, I just wanted to assure those who are waiting for prizes that they are coming! This week. Definately!

    And I also want to announce the winner of last month’s Featured Product Challenge. And the winner is…. Dianne.

  • Tuesday Template #27 | July Challenge

    Sorry this is coming late, I’d scheduled the posts but WordPress had other plans, and since I’ve been away all week I’m only just getting around to catching up now!  Scroll to the next post for the Featured Product for July!


    I’ll be honest, when it comes to my own personal layouts I rarely do single photo layouts… I’m snap happy, so I rarely have need for a page to have a single photo.  But every once in awhile, I get that special moment that really needs to be honed in on and have  a page of its own to really shine. When that happens I almost always reach for a template… because (honestly) my brain doesn’t know how to handle starting a page with a single photo and I end up staring at a blank screen for a little while…

    This month’s template is all about clean lines and simplicity to really make your single photo pop and focus on the memory:

    MD_PREV_TuesTemp#27

    Challenge – Use this month’s template (make sure you use at least a little of my products on your page – freebies included) before the month is up and you’ll receive the participation prize. Feel free to make the template your own and have fun with it!

    Anyone that completes a page and shares a link to it in the comments of this post by midnight on the 31st of July will receive this month’s participation prize! This month’s PP is a fun set of Film Strip Templates:

    **The prize will change from month to month, some months it might be a mini-kit, other month a journal card pack, next month an alpha and so on. **

    What’s more, I’m allowing double dipping with this and the Featured Product drawing, so one layout can qualify you for BOTH the participation prize and the $10 gift certificate drawing, providing you use the template and the featured product somewhere on your layout!

    Here’s what CT member Mo created with this month’s template and this month’s featured product Sorcerer, I just love that blended picture:

    Thank you to everyone that submitted a page throughout May, whether it was by comment, email or facebook, each month your pages blow me away… I will be in touch later today with your prize so keep an eye on your inboxes!

    Looking forward to seeing your pages with this month’s template!

  • DSD Game 2//

    “Never Have I Ever (scrapbook edition)”

    Same as the normal game but with a scrapbook twist! Just start your sentence with “Never have I ever…” and then state something you’ve never done, whether it’s to do with layout, technique photos or something entirely different…

    I’ll go first… “Never have I ever completed and printed a full vacation album (I’m getting close though)”.

    You can enter this game as many times as you want, but make sure each statement is a separate comment for them to count. I’ll pick at least two people at random to win my next release “That Tree” before it hits the shop and everyone will receive a small gift for taking part!

    So let’s hear your I nevers…

    **This game will run until Midnight on Monday the 9th of May, winners will be announced on the blog**

  • DSD game 1//

    Share a memory or a photo you LOVE, but keep putting off scrapping… Whether that be because you haven’t found the perfect kit/ you feel like you can’t do it justice yet/ you are fresh out of scrapspiration… whatever the reason might be, we all have them right?!

    I’ll select at least two winners at random to receive my newest kit “That Tree” for free BEFORE it’s released!

    You can comment here or over on my facebook page.

     

    **This game will run until Monday the 9th of May, winners will be announced on the blog**

    Ready, set… GO!
