A Template Challenge for May

I'm super excited to start up our monthly blog challenges again!!  This month is a template challenge.  It's VERY simple.  I created a template (it comes in psd, png, and page file formats).  You download the free template and use it to scrap something fabulous.  Use at least one little Britt-ish Designs product in there for me, will ya?

Enter your layout by posting it in my Challenge Gallery and then come back to this post and pasting a link to your page in the comments.

I'll draw one random winner and pick my favorite layout too.  Both winners will receive a $15 GC to my shop!!

Easy peasy right??  Here's the template!!

Monthly Featured Product

Now that the dust has settled from the NSD celebration, its time to get back into the normal swing of things!! Each month I'll be digging through the shop and featuring one of my favorite products from the past. This month, we're featuring "A Time To Remember", a soft elegant kit with a sprinkle of pixie dust and sparkle. All month long this kit will be 30% off!! And . . . if you post a layout in my gallery using A Time To Remember you might find yourself featured on my blog and perhaps get a little extra sumthin-sumthin as a bonus. To make sure I see your Featured Product layout, post it in my gallery and leave a comment here with a link to your page.

"A Time To Remember"

Regular Price: $5.50
30% OFF DURING MAY! Only: $3.85

This is one of those kits that I find myself using again and again and again. I'm not like that with every kit. Not at all. This one is special! Let me show you some layout inspiration using A Time To Remember. My team has scrapped some amazing NEW pages to show off this featured product. Plus I've thrown in some of my all-time favorite layouts using this kit too.

The first name I drew was jaime2's comment:

I really like Meagan43 titled Walt. There is some great simplicity and well as great colors that make the picture pop. It is a classic picture that you have to take when you go to Disneyland.

So congrats to Jamie AND Meagan!! You're both winners. I'll be emailing you your $10 GC this morning.

**Jamie2 - I don't have your email. Please email me to claim your prize!!**

Sale Extended!

Sooooo this happened on Friday. Smack in the middle of NSD! Last minute gallbladder removal surgery. Fun, right?? My surgeon may or may not gave done immediate surgery so I could be recovered enough to go to Disneyland next week. HAHA!! Friday night was rough. Saturday was sort of ok. Sunday I've been feeling alright. Things just keep getting better. I think I might make it to Disneyland!! WHEW!

Because of my crazy unexpected weekend, I just felt like extending my sale one more day.

One more day to SAVE!! I'll be back in the morning to announce all my giveaway and game winners!

Pointing Fingers!

This weekend we're going to break the rules and make pointing fingers at someone a NICE thing. Here's our second and final NSD game. You have all day today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday) to play.

Here's how it works:

1) Browse the Britt-ish Designs Gallery OR the MouseScrappers Gallery for a layout that inspires you. It does NOT have to use Britt-ish Designs products, but be careful not to pick one of the Britt Girls layouts - you'll understand why when you keep reading.

2) "Point a finger" at the layout by leaving a comment here on this post including a) the username of the layout artist, and b) a link to the layout you love. It's ok if someone else pointed at the same layout as you.

3) I'll put all the comments in a hat and draw two out to win $10 gift certificate to my store. And guess what - the layout artist you pointed a finger at will win a $10 GC TOO!!

ONE COMMENT PER PERSON PLEASE!! Do not try and enter more than once.

I'm going to start the finger pointing. I'm pointing at craftytamm. She's got a ton of cute layouts to choose from, but I especially love this "Fantasy Faire" layout she posted in my gallery. Check out the adorable little princess themed clusters near each princess photo. SO CLEVER Tammy!! And I really love the way she used the transparent tape. It looks so real.

Have fun pointing fingers everyone. You've got until midnight Sunday to enter and I'll announce the winners on Monday morning.

Kicking Off National Scrapbooking Day!

Hi everyone!! I'm so excited that National Scrapbooking Day is here once again. It's funny that we are still calling is National Scrapbooking DAY when really the industry celebrates all weekend, not to mention we celebrate INTERnationally. It should be International Scrapbooking Weekend. ISW instead of NSD . . . but I digress.

NSD is here and we're whooping it up here at Britt-ish Designs. First off - everything in the shop is 40, yes 40% off (excluding GCs and pre-discounted bundles).

This is definitely the deepest discount of the year, so now is the time to check those kits off your wish list and get to shoppin'!

Also, EVERY customer who places an order in my shop from now through Sunday night at midnight will be entered in a drawing to win a very fun prize!


Washi tape is one of my FAVORITE little go-to embellishments, both digitally and in real life. I'm not really a paper crafter so much these days, but I still LOVE to use washi tape. I use it to tags onto presents, seal envelopes, hang notes in my house. When I returned people's casserole dishes to them after they brought us dinner when Giovanna was born, I used it to tape the thank you notes to the dish. Anything you'd normally use scotch tape for is SO much cuter when you use washi instead.

So, wanna win a big old stash of washi tape?? Just make a purchase in my shop this weekend and you're entered to win!!

The fine print:

- Each customer who makes a purchase from May 2 through May 4, 2014 is entered into the drawing only once, regardless of how many transactions they make this weekend.
- Contest is open to US Residents for free shipping of the prize. International customers may also win, in which case the additional shipping cost will be paid by the customer in exchange for a Britt-ish Designs Gift Card of equal amount.
- Winner will be announced Monday May 5, 2014.

The winner will receive the 10 rolls of adorable washi tape in the picture above (which were hand selected by yours truly) including one VERY cute roll of Mickey tape, as well as the colorful little plastic tote to keep all your new tape in. And as an added bonus, the winner is also getting a $20 gift certificate to Britt-ish Designs.

So, make a purchase this weekend and who knows!! You might win some washi!!

Ok, let's see. What else is going on for NSD?

There's a Facebook Fan Freebie up on my Facebook page that will disappear on Monday, so snag it during NSD weekend.

AND I'll be back later this morning to post a couple of fun games where you can win gift certificates to my shop.  So make sure you check back later.

NSD has begun, people! Woo hoo!
