Sneak Peek Monday & Giveaway

Happy Memorial Day! We are having a cookout with friends today! I just love these summer time holidays.

Well, it's time for Monday's Sneak Peek and Giveaway. I have three, fun, new products coming out this week and I have something extra special going on. 1 of these products will be released on Wednesday at a store I'm guesting at for June! So keep an eye on my facebook page where I'll be announcing it on Wednesday morning and you'll be able to grab one of these a day early at 20% off. Oh and I'm going to have an awesome FWP at Scrap Orchard! So you'll definitely want to come back on Thursday to check out these goodies. Now for the giveaway. You have to tell me what you like better. Do you like templates or do you like masks that you can play with on your own layout design? I was making one of these sets of templates and I decided that one of the layers would be really fun to just play with as a mask. So that's what I did....there will be a whole set of paper masks that you can play with on your own layouts. So it got me to thinking and wondering if you all liked the full fledged template or if you like more of just a beginning point to work with. So let me know by midnight on Wednesday 6/1 and we'll announce a winner on Thursday's blog post.

I also have to tell you about some fun stuff going on at Scrap Orchard. I just don't want you to miss out on all the fun stuff and not to mention, PRIZES!

Make it Snappy is a fun challenge that goes on in the forum. They give you step by step instructions to follow and then in 60 minutes you have a finished digital scrapbooking page. There are always prizes given away too!

Then here's another chance to win some prizes from Lyndsay Riches and plus you get to have a fun chat with the Appletinis. I even show up occasionally!

Did you all know that we are planning another DigiscrapApalooza for 2012? It is going to be awesome. So if you missed out last year you won't want to miss out again and here's your chance to save $100! Grab this coupon now to save $100 on your ticket prices. There's only 1 more day to grab this coupon so you need to get it now if you are going to go!

I'm really hoping to see some of you all there next March but I'm not sure if I'm going to make it. I have some personal things that will be going on the beginning of next year that might prevent me from coming (you'll be hearing about this soon :) but I can't make plans for sure yet. BUT I am going to be part of the planning, prizes and more, even if I can't come. So either way, you won't want to miss it. It was a lot of fun this past spring and it's going to be even better next year.

That's it for now. See you on Thursday to announce the winner and show you the new stuff.

I like either!! It depends on the layout that I'm working on, but most of the time even if I start with a full template I modify it to suit my needs!

Adriana said...

I prefer templates (especially yours)! Have a great Memorial Day.

Leslie said...

I like your more basic templates. I feel too constricted somehow with the more fleshed out templates. Would love to see you offer your wares in *.page format (for SBC+).

Tammy said...

I love your templates - basic, detailed, whatever!! I love that you offer them in .png format since I don't use Photoshop (use SBC+). Don't normally use masks much, but would like to start. Keep up the great work.

Jody said...

I like templates that can be modified. I really like masks!

roxanamdm said...

I like more full templates, even if I modify it to my needs LOL. Thanks for the chance!!!

Dolores said...

Basic templates are my favorite...let's me add my own creativity. Yours are always great! Thanks for the chance!

bill said...

I like basic templates. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lahni said...

I love templates! I haven't used masks too much though so I can't say for sure!

Rebecca said...

Templates. I have a few masks and I just don't use them, but I know I've seen terrific pages in the gallery using masks. :)

Ana Carol said...

I dont use many masks, maybe its time to change
:)

Christelle said...

I use a lot more templates than masks, but I like both.

The White Silk Purse (Dana) said...

Templates for me, but only because I'm not adept with masks yet:)

Sharon said...

I usually use templates but like to try something different...thank for the chance to win.

raising4boys said...

I love templates because the thinking is done for me. But it sounds fun to try a layout using masks. Thanks for sharing your talent!

Alyna said...

I love templates, especially YOUR templates! Your new products look like they'll be fun to play with. Thanks for the chance to win!

Sandra said...

Well, I do use both occasionally, but I generally prefer a full-fledged template. Then, I can change it and think as much or as little as I want that day!

Brenda said...

I like to use templates. I can use them as is or change them to work for me. Thanks for a chance to win.

Jennifer said...

I like templates. I also would love to see some in .page format, if possible. I'm starting to see more designers offer them in the .page format and it's very helpful.

chocochoco said...

I like both. But I use templates more often than masks.
Thanks for the chance :)

LRaeWoo said...

Definitely templates.

The Steigmeiers said...

Templates. When I started digi scrapping they were my life line. With three kids all going in different directions and my own busy schedule. I find that even when I don't have a lot of time the template is my go to.

Thanks for the chance!

Sarah said...

I'm a template junkie! Can't wait to see these awesome products. :)

Cheryl said...

Ditto to what Brandy said!! :) Depends on the project.

MK said...

I would definitely pick Templates over Masks. I do know how to use masks, but the templates definitely get the most use by far! Thanks for a chance to win.

Scrapping With Liz said...

Thank you all for your input. I'll remember this all with future designing.

I will research the .page format thing. I think I have to have the Creative Memories Software to be able to do it....might be a wise investment ;-) I know I have an old version around here from when I used to sell CM....hmmm, if only I can find it.

Now onto tonight's winner. I used random.org to pick my winner and it's Lahni! Congrats Lahni. You'll be getting an e-mail frome me soon with your FREE stuff!

There will be more chances to win next week so make sure you come back!

Templates for me but I like masks too. Thanks for the chance.
