Hi Party Scrappers, It’s here– it’s finally here!! (Inter)National Scrapbook Day officially starts today and boy oh boy do we have some great activities to celebrate it here at the Lilypad. So grab your party hats, strap on those extra-sparkly shoes and dance on over to our forums and store to party with us throughout this weekend. Our Creative Team– the Pollywogs– have been hard at work coming up with some clever ways to celebrate and get to know each other better here at the Pad. Here’s the lowdown of all the fun activities we’ve planned (be sure to read all the way to the end for an important SALE announcement you won’t want to miss):
- Pick Your Prize: Our wildly popular activity that allows you to choose one product from each designer that you’d love to get as a prize. You post a link to the product in each designer’s thread and one product per thread is picked at random and gifted to the person.
- Tell Me Your Story: Hey, how’d you get into digital scrapbooking anyway? Inquiring minds want to know! Share your story for a chance at a prize!
- Find the Hidden Frog: Our Pollys have created a few random layouts with a cute little frog hiding in them. Let us know where you found him and maybe you’ll get a prize!
- Kiss the Frog: Our mascot, Bart has been rolling on his chapstick and he’s ready for a little puckering! He’ll be hanging out throughout our forums and gallery this weekend. Find him and be the first to kiss him!
- Pinterest Scraplift: Use Pinterest to pin your favorite layouts from the gallery and products from the store. Then use one of the pinned layouts as inspiration to create your own scraplift. Your participation will enter you into a drawing for a prize.
- Signature Update: Let’s get some new bling in our forums! Create a new siggy and be entered into a drawing.
- Product Tag: This one has been a lot of fun in recent celebrations. Someone posts a product and you have to then “tag” them by posting a product with something in common to that one (same color scheme, same subject matter, same shapes, etc.) A random winner will be selected.
- Love Yourself: This one is awesome. Just list three things that you love about yourself. That’s it! Take a deep breath and give yourself some love. There may be a prize in it for you if your name is chosen.
- The “True Love” Challenge: For each of the Four Days of iNSD, post something that you would want from your “True Love” (like the 12 Days of Christmas). Your posts enter you into a random drawing for a prize.
- Help Angie Scrap: Our dear Polly Angie is an avid runner and she’s looking for suggestions for kits that will go with her running photos. Please help her out with suggestions. She might make it worth your while! ;)
- BYOC Color Palette Contest: One of our all-time favorite contests. Post a color palette that you think would be great for our August BYOC (Build Your Own Collab). If the Pollys and designers choose your palette, you win ALL the BYOC goodies for August!
Exhausted from all those descriptions? Well guess, what? There’s more. We’ve got a whole bunch of speed scraps and chats scheduled, too. Check out the following for dates and times. We really hope to see you there! AND, if you’re subscribed to our newsletter, you have a chance to win one of three $25 coupons to our store. Just click this link to subscribe.
Finally (drumroll, please) we have a wonderful selection of fabulous goodies designed especially for iNSD and this weekend our entire store is 30%!!
Phew! We hope your schedule is clear because it looks like you’ll be pulling a few all nighters here with us this weekend. Get ready, get set, GOOOOOOO!!!! See you in our forums and store! Have a super weekend, everyone. Cheers!
