[inter] National Scrapbook Day 2012 – Blog Hop Freebie!

May 2nd, 2012

This weekend is [inter] National Scrapbook Day, and as part of the hoopla at Design House Digital, we’ve got an awesome digital scrapbooking collaboration kit from the Design House Digital designers, called Retrospect:

Isn’t that such a cool and funky collaboration kit? And best of all its free! All you have to do is hop around to all the different blogs on the hop and collect a letter.

My Letter is B

And to grab the NEXT letter, visit Deena Rutter’s Blog.

Once you collect all the letters, you will have a coupon code to get the kit in the DHD shop for free.

This is the part of the kit that I contributed to the big kit:

Also if you are participating in the iNSD layout challenge at DHD, my challenge is to use at least 3 items from the Retrospect kit in your layout.

For those of you who do not get the DHD Newsletter or subscribe to my Facebook page, I recently announced that I am retiring from DHD and Digital Scrapbooking. I’m sad to go, but am excited to be able to spend more time with my growing family. Hopefully when things calm down in a year or two, I’ll start designing for digital peeps again. In the mean time, this will be the last week to purchase any of my DHD digital kits. They are 50% off through May 8th, so grab them while they are still available.

I hope you all have a great Scrapbooking Day!

Blog Hop + Free Collab kit!

March 11th, 2012

It has been such a busy busy month so far. So many things have been happening including Ollie turning 1! I have tons to post about, but I’m so busy living that I haven’t had time to blog about living! I’ll get to it soon because I really want to document my little boy’s birthday and his cute party and invites too.

DHD is hosting an awesome month-long challenge called Mad March Memories! There are all sorts of rounds of competition and sales and so forth and it should be a lot of fun.

To kick off the challenges, the designers put together a fun and FREE collaboration kit called “Spring Menagerie” Here is what my portion looks like:

So how do you get it for free?? You need to hop around to these blogs and collect all the letters:

You have to make sure they are in the right order (order shown above) – you’ll know because it will be a phrase. Once you have the phrase you’ll visit Design House Digital, enter your phrase,  and you’ll receive a coupon code to get the WHOLE COLLABORATION kit for free. You’ll also be entered in a drawing for a Wacom Bamboo Capture tablet!

Your entry must be received by Wednesday, March 14th at 11:59 PM MST.

Also not only will most of these blogs have the secret letter for you, they’ll also have some tips, tricks, or a freebie!

So you’ll want to go visit all of them! Just in case you missed it, My letter is A!



January 2012 – Project 366ish

February 1st, 2012

In an effort to take more pictures and actually do something with them, I tried to take a photo every day in January.  I missed a few days here and there, but otherwise was pretty good. I put together this collage and am hoping to do this every month! Most of the pics are of Ollie of course… he’s the most exciting part of our day.

I think my favorite is the one where he’s kissing his stuffed lion. I love my little boy!
