November Progressive Challenge

November Progressive Challenge

It’s NOVEMBER!  November marks the end of my sabbatical.  I’m tidying up a few things in my store to open later in the month but wanted to give you a quick heads-up that the Progressive Scrap Challenge has started yesterday!  Come and join me in theStudio forum.  Here’s a peek at theStudio’s November Mega we will be using – no need to buy it to play along, I will provide you with everything you need.


Who Can Participate?  The challenge is open to everyone.  If you’re brand new to digital scrapbooking this is a great place to start, build your page slowly over the course of one week and peek left and right at what others do with the same set of supplies and instructions.  If you’re a seasoned scrapper then we want you to join us too and show us your creativitiy with your very own interpretation of the instructions.

What Is a Progressive Scrap?  A Progressive Scrap is a fun way to stretch yourself to create a page by following a specific set of instructions.  Don’t let the word “instructions” intimidate you though. Instructions, in this case are directly related to your own interrpretation and creativity. I will take you through the steps from background papers  to the finished page.

When should you show up?  November 15th is the official date but you can jump in in theStudio’s Progressive Scrap forum right now until Wednesday.
From the looks of things, it’s going to be a full house this month.  The more the merrier so come on in – NO Experience Needed.

If you want to get a feel for what we do and how things work you can take a look at the ongoing and past Progressive Scraps in theStudio’s PS gallery.  All of these scrappers started with the same set of instructions and interpreted things in their own way.  Pretty impressive huh?  There is no right or wrong in PS.  It’s truly a meeting of the mind and your own creativity.  Join Us Now and and see where your creativty takes you!

Round Robin 2 – Excuse The Mess (with Manda – Nibbles Skribbles

Round Robin 2 – Excuse The Mess (with Manda – Nibbles Skribbles

Hello!  Min is on vacation this week but her Round Robin – Round 2 is in the store at The Studio and ready for your very colorful pages and projects.  This week her partner is Manda aka Nibbles Skribbles and they have a real treat for you!

Clutter, dust, dishes and piles. Mess. Homes are messy places, and often the cleaning falls down the to-do list to make room for activities that are far more pleasant than cleaning and organizing. Whether you want to scrap photos of the messy situations, show off pages of the hard work you put into cleaning and organizing or simply get yourself organized – Excuse the Mess is the perfect collection for you!

Love primary colors?  Love a discount on your digital scrapbooking supplies?  You’re going to L.O.V.E. Excuse The Mess.  Be sure to take a look at the word art.  My favorite is “A clean house is a sign of a broken computer”.  I actually have a sign with that over my desk.

The Excuse The Mess Collection is on sale for $9.99 and if you participate in the Round Robin Challenge you can get a coupon for up to 40% off next weeks release.  The Excuse The Mess Page Kit and all of the extras are 30% off.

Have fun!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!

We’re celebrating Groundhog Day at theStudio today – with Flash Sales and a Groundhog Day Challenge! 😀

“What is a Flash Sale?  Exactly what it sounds like, a sale that is gone in a Flash.  Of course, for something so fast, it must be good.  And they are.  Oh, they really are.  All day (6 am-to-6 pm EST), Flash Sales will pop up in our Personal Use and Commercial Use store.  Each sale will be amazingly discounted at 70-75% off or only $1.00 each.

You can follow along by refreshing each Flash Sale category: Personal Use or Commercial Use .  Or you can follow along in the forum or on our Facebook page.  Please note, these are only 60 minutes each, sale prices will not be honored after they expire.”

Do you like the little groundhog? It’s one of mine – and you can get one (or rather a bunch of them, lol) by participating in my Groundhog Day Challenge in theStudio Forum:

Before I forget – my CU store is on sale until Feb 17th – 50 % off, that’s not going to happen again, soon 😉

Featured Designer – Sale and Freebie Add-on

Featured Designer – Sale and Freebie Add-on

Hi all – it’s my turn to be Featured Designer at theStudio! And while I’m all excited to see the wonderful pages created in the Featured Designer ChallengeI hope you’re excited about what that means for you:

This new collection is all springy, soft, cute, girly…I had so much fun creating it and can hardly wait to find the time to scrap all those little girl pictures of my daughter. Oh, and my waterlily pictures – some of them made it into the kit, as extracted flowers 😉

While writing this I just realized I haven’t shown you any of my February creations yet… eeek, I’m such and awful blogger!
So here they are:

First there’s my “Baby Bear Collection” – bright and fun colors for all those babies and toddlers that – like mine – don’t “do” pastels, LOL …

My Valentine’s Day kit was very “tweet” this year, here’s “Tweet Love” 😉

Then I did a kit that’s a little bit different from my usual style, “Venice Nights”, but I love how this turned out, with all the lace and velvet that makes you want to touch it.

Last but not least, there are two collabs:

“Winter Woods” a collaboration between Piggyscraps Designs, Aimee Harrison Design Studios and Deli Scraps.

“It’s my Birthday” – a collab between Nibbles Skribbles, eqrAveziur, Snips & Snails, Moon Designs and Deli Scraps

“It’s my Birthday”

Wow, that was a lot – I will do my best, trying to get better at keeping you updated!!

Have a great time (and don’t forget to pick up the blog train freebie in the post below!!)!
