I was first introduced to Digital Scrapbooking by my cousin's wife, Mary. She made up some really cute signs for her son's birthday party and hung them up around the house. We got to talking and she told me about Ikea Goddess (who is no longer posting) and how she links you up to free scrapbooking supplies for digital use. Once I got home, I immediately looked her up. I quickly made some new online friends, one being Sarah of Cabana Girl Designs, who introduced me to the Speed Scrap concept and ScrapMatters forum/gallery! I was in such awe of all the amazing designers and scrapbookers over there & played along with the challenges, etc. WELL, guess who was accepted to the SM CT!?! ME!!!! I am so over the moon, I can't stand it!! In my opinion, it is the greatest site and to be accepted was such an honor!! If you haven't been there ever, or maybe in a while, stop by because it is a really fun site with so many helpful folks! The challenges are great, with a new one most days of the month!
In fact, they've revamped how they do their challenges, calling the BINGO challenges. How it works is this...you download a card to play with (you can use this each month!). Each day a SM CT or designer introduces a new challenge (they are all posted in one thread at the beginning of the month, though) and shows off some sample LOs. This is done for the first 24 days of the month. You do whichever LOs you want, all of them is awesome!! When you complete the challenge, you add a thumbnail of it to your card after you upload the LO to the SM gallery. After the month closes, you can attend a BINGO chat to earn great prizes and have lots of fun learning about a SM designer. You still have a few days to play along for February if you'd like to...here is the ad for the upcoming BINGO Chat for this Thursday...it is linked to the SM forum for the February challenges. Hope to see you there!!
So many of you have asked for it and after a lot of planning and hard work it is finally ready! Today, Wyld Peas would like to introduce the long awaited "Land of Tomorrow" Bundle. The bundle includes 4 retired kits and 2 brand new kits for only $15.00. All kits in this bundle include the alphas, elements, and papers and are perfect for all those futuristic pages you want to complete.
If you already have some of the retired kits, don't worry you can pick up the new kits individually. Below you will find more images of the kits along with the layouts I've created using them
Here are my layouts for this fun kit! I worked on photos from a prom Cyndi went to with a friend's brother. If you're on Facebook, "like" DesignZ by DeDe and you can participate in challenges she has there each weekend. The 2nd one uses a template she gave us for this past weekend's challenge!
Like challenges? Check out this one DeDe offers each week!
Here's how it works:
Each Monday with the New Releases, DeDe will be posting a Show-OffZ Challenge. You will have until Friday to do the challenge and if you get your layout sent in, you will receive either a coupon to her store or a specific product (each posting will tell you what you are getting)! DeDe will share all the Show-OffZ of the Week on Saturdays!
THIS WEEK'S SHOW-OFFZ CHALLENGE:
I want you to scrap a layout about SOMEONE you love! Make sure to add some journaling and a photo! You must use DEDE's PRODUCTS ONLY to create your layout!(You can use ANY product by me!)
Post your layout on her FACEBOOK PAGE (with credits) or you can email her (firstname.lastname@example.org) a copy of your 600x600, 72dpi Layout by 10pm EST on Friday, February 17th and your layout will be shared on February 18th on her blog (it could be later depending on my time)! Please include the name that you want listed with your layout.
This week (if you participate), you will receive the LOVING HEARTZ: ALPHA!
Thanks and I hope you will join in the challenge and come back every other Monday for new releases and a new challenge!
Well, not the paying kind anyway LOL! I won one of 3 guest spots on the Digi Scrap Drive In's store Creative Team during a challenge last month. I am so excited!! I also was chosen as a Pep Squad Member to host challenges and such. For February, I am hosting the Can You Dig It Challenge, which is where I choose an advertisement for everyone to use for inspiration. I chose this one, which has many aspects to use for inspiration
The other challenge I am hosting is the Cool Tunes Challenge. For this one, I chose a song and the lyrics must be used in some part on your layout. Since it is February, I chose a love song - Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel. I know not everyone has a significant other to scrap a layout of, so I chose this song because many of the lyrics can be used for any type of love for anyone.
Soooooo....stop on by the Drive In and introduce yourself if you haven't already. Then check out the great challenges they're offering this month. You get points for each one you complete, which you can trade in for a store gift certificate when you reach 500 points. Isn't that great?!!? Hope to see you around!!
It's finally February, the month of "love", so the Wyld Peas came up with this adorable So in Love kit. The colors are gorgeous together and so versatile. You can pick it up on the Wyld Peas Blog or at their store at Digi Scraps Drive In. You can even get an add on by participating in "The Works" Challenge at DSDI forums

I participated in a Speed Scrap Marathon over at Mouse Scrappers last weekend and completed SIXTEEN layouts in three days. What a whirlwind of fun and such a great feeling to get so many pages completed. Here are the ones I did, which are linked to the MS gallery for credits. I used mostly Wyld Peas Designs, Britt-ish Designs and Kellybell Designs. Some I love, others I will probably tweak a little before I print them...that's the beauty of a Speed Scrap!
