Take a Breath

Hi everyone! Today I'm putting items that were in the Grab Bag into the store individually AND i'm adding two other new items to the shop, that were past prizes as well.

Here's what was in the grab bag . . .

"Nothing But Photos 3"



"Poptastic Elements"



"Poptastic Papers"



"Poptastic Alpha"



And you can still find it all bundled together in the . . .

"Poptastic Bundle"



Ok - so new in the shop today we have a mini-kit and a pack of journal cards.

"Take a Breath"


Take a Breath is a magical little mini-kit that went to everyone who participated in my Speed Scrap last Saturday morning. But now its in the shop for one and all.

"Chalkboard Cards"


These Chalkboard Cards were my Facebook Fan Freebie this summer. But the new freebie replaced them, so they are going in the shop!

Here's the page I scrapped using "Take a Breath":

Birthday Celebration Giveaway!

I'm so excited to tell you guys about the giveaway I'm doing for my birthday celebration!! Let's get right to it . . .

For the second year in a row OPI has teamed up with Disney to create a Minnie Mouse inspired line of nail polishes. If you know me, you know I'm OBSESSED with nail polish. So, Disney-inpired polishes?? Yes please! I'm giving away a set of mini bottles (errr Minnie bottles - hehe) to one lucky reader!


Even though these are the small mini-size bottles, I actually have found I like the small bottles because when's the last time you actually used an entire full-size bottle of nail polish?? Like, never! So getting the mini's you get more colors and I don't really feel like I'm missing out on anything cuz I can't seem to use up a mini size bottle either!


The names of these little beauties are:

A Definite Moust-Have
Magazine Cover Mouse
Chic From Ears To Tail
Innie Minnie Mightie Bow

Aren't they cute??! I'm going to have to get myself a set too. OPI brand is such high quality nice polish.

ALSO the winner will get a $25 Gift Certificate to my shop!! Polishes and Britt-ish Designs goodies! Fun prize pack, right??

So, use the Rafflecopter entry form below to enter up to 3 times.  The giveaway closes at midnight Sunday night (08/25/13), so get your 3 entries in before then.  And good luck!

Time for the Quick Fire Challenge!

It's time for a Quick Fire Challenge! Just like on Top Chef, the Quick Fire is a challenge to be completed QUICKLY!! You have until midnight Sunday night (08/25) to enter.

So, for this Quick Fire I thought we'd do a ONE WORD CHALLENGE! It's simple: I give you a word and you go from there. You can use it as a jumping off point for your topic, theme, journaling, title, whatever you want!! Just use the word as your inspiration.

And our word is: CELEBRATE.

I thought that was a fitting word to go with my site's birthday celebration this weekend. Here's a page I scrapped to help jumpstart your scrapping mojo. I actually scrapped this one a few months ago, so I'm totally not following my own rules. YOUR layouts need to be new - scrapped this weekend!


{credits here}

How to enter:

* scrap your "celebrate" layout and upload it to the Britt-ish Designs Challenge Gallery (please use at least a little Britt-ish Designs products on your page).
* despite my bad example, your layout actually needs to be NEW - scrapped this weekend!
* come back to this post and put a link to your layout in the comments

That's it!! On Monday (08/26) I'll pick my favorite, and I'll have my Britt Girls vote on their favorite. Those two lucky scrappers will win a $10 GC to my shop!!

Happy scrapping!

Happy Birthday to BrittishDesigns.com!

I'm super excited to kick off the birthday celebration for brittishdesigns.com! Britt-ish Designs itself has been around for about 6 years, but my little online home is turning 3 years old! I remember working so hard to build this site, learning and coding and busting my butt. And here it is, 3 years later, still happily chugging along. It's been such an enormous blessing in my life, having this website and this business. And I owe so much of that to all of you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

And to show my thanks - let's kick off this sale-ebration!

EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP IS 30% OFF ALL WEEKEND LONG (minus the grab bag & pre-discounted bundles)!

And I have this awesome little $3 Grab Bag as my birthday gift to you. The 4 all-new products inside are valued at over $12, so you're really getting a STEAL!

"3rd Birthday Celebration Grab Bag"


Here is the page I scrapped with it:
