OK everyone…mark your calendars for NSD, Saturday, May 3. We’re planning a HUGE party on the boards and specials in the store.

Check back in a few days I may have some fun sneak peaks posted.

We have 2 chats scheduled with members from the Tinkering Ink Team. Betsy Veldman is on their Design Team (as well as a number of other companies) and will be joining us late morning/early afternoon for a chat. We’re still nailing down an exact time.

The Design Team is also putting together some GREAT classes…maybe you can sweet talk them into posting some sneak peeks soon!

The team is also working on some new challenges and games to play during the day.

At the store, we’re doing a huge sale, with maybe some cheap shipping too *hint hint* and also some awesome gifts with purchase!!! You’ll have to wait until the crop to see all of the awesome little goodie bags that will be tossed in your order when you shop over NSD weekend.

And, last but certainly not least…I have lined up some awesome prizes for the crop!!!

The first prize is to be given to the person with the most points (you’ll get points rewarded for every challenge, game, class, and chat you participate in).

PLUS…when you play with us, you’ll get points as I said above…the more points you have, the bigger coupon code you’ll get to use at the store! At the end of the day, you’ll tally up your points and depending on your points, you’ll get up to 25% off your order!! How great is that??!!?

So, you’ll want to tell all your friends to join the board, come play with us, and we’ll have a GREAT time on the boards at The Scrapbooking Site.

Spring has Sprung!

April 7th, 2008

Well with all the warm weather we had over the weekend I was inspired to create another fun springish card! I just love seeing the grass turn green, the trees begin to bud, Robins hopping all around and tulips poking up through the ground! Happy Spring!

The new papers from Prima- Dude Collection and MME Dreamy collection are just the right combo! Here are two of my layouts created using this kit!
