Woohooo!  Our 4th Birthday Bash has started with a bang!  No time for idle chit-chat today, I’m here to bring you the details and then I’m headed back into the fun, fun, fun!!

It is TIME! Our Birthday Bash is finally here and we are kicking it off with a super fun Rotating sale. Recently we reorganized our store to make shopping easier for you.   Now it’s time to see if all our hardwork paid off!  Each week in September one of our new categories will be on sale for a full 50% off!  To kick things off we’ve got our Digital Scrapbooking Kits up first.  This includes  Full-sized Scrap Kits, Mega Kits, and Mini Kits!

it’s time for the long-awaited Annual Next Designer Contest! The first challenge has been posted and all hopefulls have until Monday, September 5th to join in and post their mini’s.  More details can be found in the forum!

There is plenty  happening in the forum for non-Designers as well (besides downloading all the mini’s!).  We’ve got a fantastic Layout Artist Competition.  Not only are there free kits for each of the 4 weeks, but the three Grand Prize winners earn coveted spots on theStudio CT team and the Top Winner earns a Shutterfly Photo Book!

We’ve also got new events sprouting up all this holiday weekend!  Be sure to check out:

Finally, for those of you ready to get to know our Designers, or those of you just ready to get a kick-start back into scrapping, we’ve got a full complement of Scraps & Chat ready to go!  Today I’ll jumpstart it all with a Q&A for all our Next Designers competitors.  I’m in Germany, so this is going to be early: 3:00 p.m. EST.  To sweeten the pot, I’ll have a CU freebie ready to go.

Yippeee! Berna Datema van Scrapbook Graphics host een Nederlandse-talig Chat. En ik doe mee!

Er zijn “prijzen” en freebies!  Je hoeft niks te zeggen hoor, maar het mag natuurlijke.  Vragen zijn zeer welkom.  Ik heb een nieuwe mini ontworpen speciaal voor de gelegenheid:

Smooches mini


For all of you reading in English, Berna has arranged a Dutch-only chat at SGB on Sunday!  I’m so excited to speak my native language and get to know some of the other Dutch Designers, Scrappers and CT.  The mini will be a freebie for attending the Chat, soon to be available at theStudio.
