Happy Wednesday everyone!  Did you have fun during our summer celebration?  Come on, you were secretly singing many of our inspiration songs in your head, weren’t you?  (okay, I won’t tell, I promise). It’s sale day today, just like every week, where you can grab select kits for 50% off – some old, some new! Some of the store collabs are still on sale, too – and they’re a whopping 70% off!  Here’s a sampling of what’s available today:

Now, don’t lose the opportunity to grab some great sale items and still get Part 2 of month’s store collab, Retro-Spective, if you spend $7 or more in the shop (in one go)!

 

Retro-Spective-Part2

For many of the states in the US, the kids are back to school – or going back in the next week.  If you loved the summer challenges, want another one?  Why not take me on?!  Yup, I’ve got a challenge going here on the blog, AND you get a really cool wordart freebie from France M. Designs in the process!  Check it out HERE.

Welcome back, everyone, to the Featured Designer game!  Boy, do I have a doozy for you this week!!

Let’s see a show of hands for everyone that has kits, wordart or templates on their scrappy wishlist from France M. Designs?  Yay – and good for you as France is our Featured Designer this week, so that means it’s a great time to grab some bargains. You can find France’s Mscraps store HERE.  See that?!  50% off … everything! Every.Thing.  You’ll need a few things for this week’s challenge, so stock up!  What’s our game this week?  Well, it started as one thing and then morphed a bit – but that’s perfectly fine with me – you see, your challenge this week is to challenge me!!

Yup, who’s scrapper enough to challenge me?!  You can see our chatty thread in the forum for the banter and egging me on, but I LOVE a good challenge!  For those of you who have known me in scrappy circles for the past 10+ years, you know I love a challenge and the trickier, the better.  This one is all about volume – # of layouts in a week … BUT, I won’t be doing ANY layouts, unless YOU are, too! Here’s how this week’s game will work.  France has created some really great wordart for everyone to play with – click on the image below for your free download!

 

folder

To play this week’s game – and to challenge me! – you must create a layout using one or more of these wordart pieces, and use only kits from France’s store.   Post your layout in the MScraps gallery, and then link me up in the comments section on this blog post. I’ll then create a scraplift of your page.  See, the more people that play along this week, the more work I have to do! Since the challenge only runs for a week (we’ll close of entries by 5:00 pm August 30), how many pages do you think I’ll need to do between now and next weekend???  I am giving away a coupon to France’s store to a winner for the challenge, AND France will be stopping by to randomly select another winner to receive a coupon, too.

Who’s up the challenge?  C’mon everyone … *** insert chicken sounds ***

Welcome to the August Typography Challenge by biancka

Biancka here with this months Typography Challenge. I love tagxedo but I’ve never used it in a layout so I thought it would be a lot of fun to use it for my challenge. With tagxedo you can pick a shape (I picked a star for my LO) and add different words into the program which will make up the shape. I found a great tutorial here and also here. So the challenge is to create your own tagxedo png file and use it in your LO. You can use any shape……….and pick your own words 

Here are a few examples:

Well, I guess the scavenger hunt in Monica’s store (that’s Designs by Helly) wasn’t that hard, huh?  Correct answers from everyone that participated in the game! So our winner for the game this week can spend their coupon in the Designs by Helly store … but you can still grab some bargains, too – the featured designer sale is still on for a few more days!

I thought, perhaps, that the second image of the nine might have been a bit of a challenge (you can find the images in this blog post) … but nope. Hhhhmmm, maybe I need to make the sneak peek windows smaller so less of the kit or element shows through … ?

Oh, our winner?!  Congratulations to Lana!  You’ll get an email from me in the next day or two with your coupon.

Also, don’t forget — if you haven’t signed up for the MScraps newsletter, do so before August 18 and you’ll get this mini-kit for free as our way of saying thanks!

Hi everyone – welcome back to our biweekly Featured Designer game! This week’s designer is Monica of Designs by Helly.

 

helly_fd

There are all kinds of things on sale in the store – and 50% off … bonus!!  Kits, elements … and did you see those really cute photo chains?!  Haven’t seen all the goodies available from Designs by Helly?  Well, that just means you’ll have to play along with this week’s scavenger hunt and do a little exploring along the way!  Below you will see little sneak peeks to nine items from Monica’s store. PM me with your guesses on the kits – don’t post them here on the blog, just PM so nobody else knows your answers – or email me. Next Sunday, August 16 at 5:00 pm (MST), I’ll take all the correct entries and randomly draw a winner who will receive a $5 coupon to the Designs by Helly store. Easy, right?  Now, I know some of you have written to me saying, oh, easy-peasy … and it is.  However, hopefully – fingers crossed – I made one or two of these items a little more challenging for you to find.

Scavenger Hunt - Helly

Remember, private message me your answers before Sunday night (look for AussieKat in the forums/message boards – click on my name to send a message) or email me. Ready? Good luck … now, go!!  Also, don’t forget — if you haven’t signed up for the MScraps newsletter, do so before August 18 and you’ll get this mini-kit for free as our way of saying thanks!
