A Birthday Bash and Freebies

Starting on Monday, August 30, 2010, E-Scape and Scrap is having a big birthday bash that you probably don't want to miss!

E-Scape and Scrap turned 6 years old in July but because of the server hosting problems that occurred in June and July the celebration has been delayed.  But we're ready now!  Please help us all celebrate by stopping by on Monday.  There will be a treasure hunt for free downloads of our designer collaborative kit 'Astrological Dreams', challenges, games and prizes, and some 'silly' sales.

Visit The Nifty Blog for more information and to keep informed about the happenings during the week long celebration.

Tuesday Treat at The Nifty Boutique

Every Tuesday, one of the E-Scape and Scrap designers offers some sort of 'treat' for free.  The Tuesday Treat is free through the Friday following the day it is first offered.

This week's Tuesday Treat is by me, an add-on to my Baby's Firsts kit.  Although it is an add-on to my baby themed kit, all of the items are fairly generic and can be used for most any theme you can think of for your scrapbooking pages, you don't have to be restricted to using it for scrapping your baby pages.

Get it FREE starting today, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 and continuing through Friday, August 27, 2010.  After that it will still be available in my shop for $2.99.

The download is available through The Nifty Boutique; click on the image to go there now.

While you're there, you may want to sign up to receive The Nifty Boutique newsletter so you can be kept informed about all future Tuesday Treats.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping to you!

Designing Contests and Freebies


I'm just checking in today to bring you (LOL, if there are any of 'you' out there actually following me) up to date on my status with designer contests and to let you know about some freebies available over at The Nifty Blog (the blog of the E-Scape and Scrap designers).

I'm no longer participating in the Designer Survivor Contest over at Brownie Scraps; I needed to drop out due to having too much on my plate with other things that needed doing.  However, I will be joining the upcoming designer contest that theStudio will be having starting September 1st as part of their birthday bash celebration.

I'm very excited about joining this particular contest because theStudio was my first 'home' in the digital scrapbooking world (back when it was called Stone Accents Studio) and I was on the creative team there for 9 months in 2008.  I would be ever so happy to be able to 'win' that contest and be offered a position in their store; for me this would be, as they say, the icing on the cake!

So, be sure to head on over to theStudio and join the forum so you can join in on the voting when the time comes.

I also wanted to tell you about some freebies that can be found over at The Nifty Blog.  The designers at E-Scape and Scrap have created a bunch of mini kits with the same color palette.

A new mini is being given away for free each week.  This was started on August 3rd and I'll have one coming along there soon myself.  Don't miss out, head on over and check it out (the color palette image is linked to the blog).

Also, if you aren't already signed up for the E-Scape and Scrap Newsletter, why not take a few minutes to do that today?  That way you won't miss out on all the Tuesday Treats (more freebies).  Just go to The Nifty Boutique and you'll see the newsletter sign-up near the top left of the page.

That's all for today.... Happy Scrapping!

Designer Survivor 2010 Contest - Grab Your Freebies Before They're Gone

Hello all my digital scrapbooking friends!

Oh, it's been a very busy week for me with the Designer Survivor contest!  On July 30th, we were all given our first week's challenge and our team assignment; I was assigned to the Red Team.  The other members on my team are:
We were given a color palette of 10 colors and told, as a team, to choose 5 of them and, also as a team, come up with a theme and create a kit.  Additionally we were each given a specific list of items to create for the kit.  I think our team did a great job!

Our theme, and kit title, is 'Boys And Their Toys'.  Here's our final Preview:

And here's the preview of my portion of this kit:

If you want to grab this kit as well 9 other free kits (there were 10 teams in all), head on over to the Brownie Scraps Gallery for Week 1 of the Designer Survivor contest.

BUT HURRY!  The links are only expected to be active until Saturday, August 7th!

Enjoy your freebies and Happy Scrapping!
