Berry Sweet Scraps Is OPEN!!!!!

That's right!!! At 12:00 midnight tonight Berry Sweet Scraps opens their doors with tons of fun, challenges, contests, prizes, great designers, awesome sales and some of the best scrap kits you will be able to find on the net. I'm so excited because this is the kind of store I dreamed of being in and now it's a reality. We have a great gallery that is already filling up with great layouts and tags and a forum that's one of the most active I've seen. Go check us out and I'm sure you will love it.

Speaking of challenges and contest, I'm hosting two during our Grand Opening. The first is a Quick Page Challenge. Pick your favorite Berry Sweet Scrap Designer's kit (it has to be one in the our store) and make a Quick Page out of it to be given away as a freebie. Then load it in the gallery with a link back to the kit and a link to download it. Go back to the challenge thread in the forum and post a preview of your QP and a link to the QP in the gallery. Then I want you to call on all your scrapping friends, groups you're in, blog about it, etc. and get them to come to our gallery and leave a comment. The person with the most comments on January 14 will get a $10.00 gift certificate to my store. 2nd place will receive a $5.00 gift certificate to my store and 3rd place with get a $3.00 gift certificate to my store. Everyone who participates will receive a coupon for $1.00 off a $5 purchase from my store. So get scrapping.

The second one is an "Oh So Random" contest. Go to the Contest thread in the forum and tell me anything your want, a kit of mine, a LO you saw in the gallery you loved, or some random thought that running through your head and I will go back randomly each day and give away random gifts from my store. It could be kits, gift certificates, coupons, pretty much anything I randomly think of.

And to start things off I'm having a 50% off everything in my stores sale.

12 Days of Christmas Freebies - Day 4

Well, we're to Day 4 of my 12 Days of Christmas gifts. I'm having a blast making these. I hope you are enjoying these too. Can't believe it's only 2 more days until Berry Sweet Scrap opens it's doors. You just have to come play with us. I'm hosting two contest during our grand opening and will be giving away some of scrap kits, coupons, and other stuff. I will post more about this in a post tomorrow. But for now, what you've come here for. Decided to try my hand at a Messy Mat and I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Merry Christmas and a Freebie

Merry Christmas everyone. Sorry I haven't updated this as much as I should be over the holidays but life here in this one cow town has been pretty hectic. Between Christmas parties at school for my GS, Christmas Dance Recitals, parades, two funerals (sadly we lost an uncle and my DD's GM-in-law), a new baby (good friend's child), GS had minor surgery and life in general I've been pretty busy. I've also been really busy getting ready to open my new store at Berry Sweet Scraps. You guys are gonna love it there. We're not even open yet and I'm having a blast so I know you will. Grand Opening day is December 30, so mark your calendars, save the date and be there. I post later in the week about all that is going to go on there during GRAND OPENING.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Enjoyed lots of great food, fellowship with loved one and dear friends, and got what they wanted for Christmas. As for me, well I gifted myself the new PSE10 a few weeks back and I gave the entire family a big screen TV and a home theater system for the family room but I think the best present was the look on my GS sweet face when he opened up a toy shaving kit with spiderman on it. You would have thought I had given him a million dollars.

Speaking of gifts, here's one for you. I've always loved the song 12 Days of Christmas but this year I decided to look into what the 12 days really meant. I found lots of information including that they begin the day after Christmas commonly known as Boxing Day and end on January 6 with the celebration of  Twelfth Night or the Feast of the Epiphany. There are lots of different traditions which go with it. Some giving gifts just on Christmas or Boxing Day and others giving gifts everyday with a special one on the 12th day. Since I love giving gifts I like the latter tradition. So today I give begin giving my twelve gifts to you.
Just click the image above and it will take you to the download page. These links will be good until January 15 so you will have plenty of time to download your gifts. So make sure you check back here everyday for your 12 days of Christmas gifts. Enjoy and Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays.
