New Forum at Scrap That Idea - World CUP

I wanted to tell you about our brand new exciting promo. As some of you will know, the Soccer World Cup kicks off on 11th June in South Africa. There are 32 countries taking part including each of the home countries of our four designers - South Africa, England, USA and Australia. We thought it would be great fun to run a promo in line with the tournament and get everyone involved with a chance to win gift certificates, discounts to the STORE and a participation freebie!

How do you take part? Well, STI has opened up a section of the CT forum to everyone so that they can all keep track of what's happening with the promo and chat with you all about any questions you have for the designers in the store or the creative teams. This forum will be active for the duration of the promo (until July 11th) and if it's popular and well used, we may consider extending that! You need to go to the forum HERE and register for access and once accepted, go HERE to register for the promo itself BEFORE the end of the day on 9th June (two days before the tournament begins). You will need to wait for activation of your account before you can register for the promo - this is being done manually to make sure we don't get spammers, so please bear with us if you have to wait a few hours :)

All the details of the promo are included in the forum - it explains the prizes, it will be where you get your freebie mini kit designed by me for participation and where you can ask quesions of the designers and creative team members!

What are you waiting for? Head on over to the forum and get registered - we look forward to welcoming you and chatting with you some more! Oh, and this is what the participation freebie looks like, just to whet your appetite!! :)"

New Layouts

This is a new kit I picked up over NSD at Brit-tish Designs - Scrap Matters - Jack Pot. Wish it had a Reno sign but I'll make one. Fun kit! We sure had a fun day while the kid's were in school. I went to the gym in the am got home and we went for a mountain bike ride together and the cleaned up and went to lunch and I people watched and talked while my hubby played a few quarters. No winning that day.

This is another one from Brit-tish Designs but picked it up at Digiscrap Addicts - Time for a Hair Cut. This is so fun. I have another page done but haven't found the picture for it yet. So cute everyone getting ready in the bathroom together.

You know it's the end of the semester when I don't know that X comes before Y. Last exam tomorrow. Then I'm going to sleep all day Friday. Ha! You know I won't. I have Spring Cleaning to get to and I still have two photo albums of old pictures to scan and then make CD's for everyone in the family. I'm tired just thinking about it. Anyway SORRY Stacey. Made a Goof! So here is the kit for last Sat. Really love this great boy kit and of course it's great for girls too.

Check out my new Blinkie. I made it tonight with a great animation program that I found for free. Don't we just love free stuff. You can check out the great TUT on Bobbies Blog HERE. I was pretty fast I just saved my file as a PSD and turned the eye ball off on the layers I didn't want to show and then saved it as...jpeg. I'll have to try again when I'm not so tired and make it better. But excited that it turned out cute. Woo Hoo!

Sorry my preview for the kit is not that great. Head over to Scrap That Idea to get a good look at it. The CT's did some amazing layouts. Go HERE You can see layouts at Stacey's Blog HERE, at Vicki's HERE and at Sara's HERE.

The animation I did was a challenge but it turned out so great. We had to find a toy; one we made or one we bought and then do a story board for our animation. Then I went into Adobe Illustrator and drew my panda with the pen tool. It turned out better than I thought. I made about 15 different versions. Then we brought all our elements into Adobe Flash and animated them with sound clips and music. Next we moved on to story boards for our commercial about selling our toy. It was fun to be creative but we had to film it in the class room or hall way. Our group had five and we had two 2 hour days to film our entire shot. I realize that I'm a awful actress and that its a good thing I don't do that for a living. Ha! Anyway every ones commercials turned out so great and some were hilarious. Now we are building a web site to hold the entire project for our final grade.
This is Stacey's Scraps new kit and I just love the colors. You have to see all the great layouts that everyone did. Click on Preview to go to Stacey's...
