Design Team Call

Scrapdoodles is looking for 6-8 designers for a six month term (August 2010 - January 2011) with the possibility of extending their position.

Please submit three new creations, to include two layouts and one altered item, in person to Scrapdoodles with your name, phone number, address and blog and/or gallery address (if you have one).

This Call closes on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at close of business. An announcement regarding the new Designers will be made on Thursday, July 15, 2010.

Designer Details:

Create: Each designer shall create 3 projects per month , with two of the creations being layouts (any size). The third creation can also be a layout but there is the option to create something different. If it is a card, tag, etc., then two will need to be created to count as one project. The projects will be featured in the store during the length of their term and/or including through March 2011 and posted on . Designers will need to be able to photograph their projects and upload them to the blog.

Product Spotlight: During the 6 month term there will be a Product Spotlight offered on the site. This product will be provided to each Designer and will need to be created during a mutually agreed upon month during that term.

Challenges: Each designer will take turns posting a Monthly Challenge (sketch, art or ad inspiration, color, technique or designer's choice) on the 10th of each month. This Challenge creation could count as the designer's third project if using that month's “kit” or the designer may choose to use their personal supplies (but must be product/lines that Scrapdoodles carries). The Challenge Schedule will rotate each month and will be posted at the beginning of the six month term for planning purposes.

Tip/Technique of the Day: Each month the designers will receive a particular day of the week to post a tip or technique or quote which can be related to scrapbooking, just for fun, etc., but only per week is required. There will be none required on the weekends.

Blog/Facebook Forum: Designers will need to be active in these areas.

Please feel free to e-mail the co-ordinator should you have any questions or require additional information about this Call at Cyndi or Manager

Inspired! Messenger Bag

One of the things we look forward to every year is the tote bag that Donna Downey hands out every year with our registration packet. This year we were thrilled to receive her Messenger Bag. It was a blank slate that we got to create our own signature design and carry with us as we went from class to class.  Kris from Silhouette was there with Amy Kinnon demonstrating the Silhouette. As the event went on we were able to do three separate make and takes using the heat transfer in smooth & flocked & the rhinestones.
I took mine home and finished it this afternoon. One thing to keep in mind is that you can glimmer mist over the heat transfer in smooth and the rhinstones but not the flocked. So...I misted my tote with Tattered Angels Patina, Coral Reef (my current favorite pinkish orange) & Sunshine, added the trim we found on our way home from Inspired at a Fabric Outlet we saw advertised on the freeway (hee!) and lots of my favorite Prima Flowers! I adhered the flowers using Helmar Adhesive (soon to be arriving at Scrapdoodles!) and then decided that one butterfly was not enough and cut two more out in smaller sizes. It was a bit tricky ironing them on with all the flowers and trim in place but I managed! :) Enjoy!

Cards Class

Hello! I thought I'd pop on and share the cards we will be creating in the upcoming cards class. We will be meeting on Saturday, June 19th at 1:30pm and if you'd like to join us, please give us a call or stop by the store! Here are the cards:

There are lots of fun techniques in these cards! I hope you can join us!

Star Wars & SEI

Creative Imaginations has outdone it with their new Star War's Release! The top paper is the 30 Anniversary paper. I remember when the movie came out I was turning 11 and my dad stood in line for 3 hours to get tickets for my birthday party. Back then the special effects were pretty incredible. Now my son watches the movie and I can recite the lines because it has been rerun on cable so many times.

CI came out with several papers for Star Wars including the one below which is a die-cut. These two, of course, are just a sampling of what we have in the store for you. We also received new beach and summer papers, 4h, John Deere and a few others.

We also received SEI's On the Coast. The papers are shimmery and beautiful. Perfect for the summer, pool and beach photos.
