{I Need a Design Team!}

I am so busy creating new products these days that I don’t have time to give you, my customers, ideas on how to use them! As a result, I’ve decided to search out some fabulous designers to help me out.
For weeks I’ve been brainstorming on all the requirements that I thought I should have, but in the end, I’ve decided to keep it simple. If you want to join the team, this is all I require:
Style: Whimsical – I think my products speak pretty well to what my style is.  :D Any form of medium is welcome as long as my products can be incorporated.
Commitment:  Must be able to commit to 3 consecutive months, meet deadlines accordingly, and participate in at least one Color Inspiration Challenge per month.
I would also really like my team to have the ability to take good photos of their creations and be willing to promote A Scrappy Design products on social media sites. Also, would love for each team member to contribute one tutorial during the 3 month commitment.
1. Free products for assignments.
2. 25% discount during your commitment period
3. Exposure for you and your creations.

If you think you would be a good fit for A Scrappy Design, please email the following information to info{at}
  • Name
  • A little bit about yourself.
  • Why you want to be a part of the team.
  • Photos or links to 3 projects that best represent you and your style.
  • Any other links that you feel are relevant (blog, flickr, twitter, etsy, etc).
I haven’t completely decided on how many team members I will have but I am thinking 2-3.
Deadline for submissions is August 12th. Design team will be announced August 17th.
Happy Crafting and Good Luck!!

{Color iNspiRed: Purple & Grey}

Today’s inspiration comes from an idea book I picked up in the paint section of a home improvement store. I love the elegant look of these two colors!
Are you ready for a challenge? See below for details.

Ok, so here’s the challenge: Create something with today’s color inspiration and upload it to the Flickr group I have created for this weekly challenge. You're creation can be anything you've made (photography also counts). Uploading your project may get you featured here on the blog!

{Introducing Tutti Fruiti!!}

It seems like this little project of mine took forever to complete! Who new that brainstorming, designing and creating a line of products would take so long? Well it’s done and I am pretty pleased with it and sure hope that you are too.
I have wanted to put together coordinating kits for scrapbooking for a while now so after some research, sketching and planning, I came up with the cherries but thought that I needed more options so along came the strawberries and watermelon. The perfect summer fruits! In these sets I have included all the basic embellishments you would need for your scrapbooking. There are die cuts, stickers, labels, tags, journal spots, buttons and more! All of these things will be offered separately or as a set. Everything you see here will be listed in the shop this week . . . I am hoping first of the week but I have to be realistic so I am just going to say ‘this week’.  :D
Be sure to check back because I have another announcement to make and a special discount for the new line!
Oh . . . . I am so nervous . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Ok, here it is . . . . . Introducing . . . . . . . .

{Beachy Finds}

I love the beach but unfortunately, don’t live close enough to one that I could visit frequently. Browsing through Etsy, I found these great finds that make me long for Sand & Surf.

I have so much fun doing these color inspiration posts that I am going to start a weekly challenge with the color combos I post. I have created a Flickr group called Color iNspIRed, and I would love for all my readers to join and participate. There will be prizes (by random drawing) to those who participate! Winners will be announced each Sunday.
The Challenge: Create something with the color inspiration and upload it to the Flickr group mentioned above. You're creation can be anything you've made (photography also counts).

{Camping Out}

I’m one of those that likes to think I’m an outdoor person but really, if it came down to it, I’d rather be in an air conditioned space with indoor plumbing. I keep telling my family that I’m think I might give camping a try. However, if I’m going to have to go through with it, I might as well do it in style, right?

{Calling all Chocoholics}

So, we are still eating on the chocolate cake hubby got for my birthday last weekend. Sad thing is, I will be crushed when it’s all gone.
However, I can still get my chocolate fix from Etsy!
