  • 4TH BIRTHDAY GAME | FOUR-GOTTEN

    Y'all. It was so crazy four years ago as we were opening up this shop and trying to get it ready. It seems like both a lifetime ago AND yesterday that this place was born. I am ever grateful for this site's existence, community, and leadership. As a designer and scrapper I have thrived here as much as, if not more than, any other shop I've been at. And there have been three other shops. Here are some snippets of my design history:



    2010:
    #1:
    This was created before I ever sold in any shop. It was one of two previews I sent in for my first designer call, which was at a store called Polka Dot Plum. The owners there were so helpful and kind as I tried my hand at not only designing better but also figuring out the ins-and-outs of FTPing, XCarting, naming things, zipping stuff up, etc.

    #2: My time at Polka Dot Plum didn't last too long. I don't remember if I left before they closed or not, but this kit from that time was me trying to broaden my element packs a little bit. I remember taking a very long time trying to get that scatter of little black circles just right.

    2011:
    #3: My next store was at The Digichick. Nicole Seitler, who is guesting with us this month, was the owner at the time and this preview I'm showing was a collab I did with TDP's current owner, Laura Passage. I really grew as a designer at The Digichick, but, alas, had a hard time finding many of my old previews from there because I had repackaged them all to sell them at my next shop....

    2013:
    #4:... Pixels & Company. One of my favorite times was when the design team traveled for a meet-up in Utah for a weekend. That was the second time I was able to meet Laura in person (we also had a Digichick weekend in San Antonio when I was very hugely pregnant and the ladies graciously came to my neck of the country) and I also got to meet Hillary Bandley. She's a TDP CT member and site manager and also happens to be on my own personal CT.

    2014:
    #5: Which brings us to four years ago when we opened up TDP. I feel like recently my style has firmed up and I am more confident and sure of how I like to create kits. It's taken all these years to get here, LOL.

    YOUR TURN!

    The point of this game is to post any previews you have of older or retired kits by TDP designers. Dig deep!! It will be so much fun to see what you come up with. Many of the designers here have been at different stores and some have been around for as long as digiscrapping has been. I can't wait to see what you find in your stashes!

    All game entries will be due from the participants by 11:59pm ET on Wed 11/28

    The winner will be randomly selected and will win a $5 coupon to the Dawn by Design shop.

          jang - I wish I could see the photo. If you can find time to fix the image I know we would all love to see it! Thanks for playing!

        Here is one of yours, Dawn. It's still one of my favorites.

          Ok I went and looked at my old hard drive, and I have found a few oldies!! Like this one from Wishing Well Creations by Laura Passage - I followed a few blog trains for a while, and I think this is the first kit that I have from Laura, but it was just the beginning!


          I followed Laura to the store she was at, and found you there Dawn, and this was the first kit I bought of yours


          But at a different store, I met Karla, and was quickly a fan of her too...


          and one time Karla made a kit, and Anita made a co-ordinating kit, and that is how I discovered that I loved Anita's designs as well!

            I think Dreamchaser was my first Tracie Stroud kit, which I got at Scrap Orchard. I got others there, too. Then I had to follow her over to Scrapbook Graphics and purchased a few more kits. And finally I found her here! I haven't used the Artisan Templates that I got here yet, but I'm waiting for just the right photos. I love artsy background papers and doodles she creates. I tried uploading attachments of the previews, but it says I'm not authorized?

              jaharvey - I am not a forum expert, but I do believe that you cannot upload images directly to a comment. The image must first be hosted somewhere and then linked within your post. Maybe we have a tutorial on site about how to do that? Hillary?

              Not sure if this is the best way, but I uploaded my image to a Pinterest board. Then I was able to right click it and copy the image address - to be pasted into the URL window in the comments section - add an image/.

                I believe the older preview in my folders was a collab of Anita and Heather T when I was just a total freebie hunter.

                Decided to start scrapbooking digitally and starting to participate in challenges at the end of 2016 so I am kinda new... I'm a creative team for various designers so I barely buy new supplies... So the oldest product I ever bought in this site were these templates at the beginning of the year.

                      Yes, these are from my own personal collection. "Collecting" being the distinguished word here. I have scrapped with a couple of these kits. *blush*
