A Million Memories – Giveaway for Basic Grey Granola Papers

School is back in session.  A lot of us have little ones that started Preschool and Kindergarten this year.  Tuesday was my daughter Chloe’s first day of Kindergarten.  I dropped her off and then walked home crying like a baby! LOL.  I’m grateful for this day.  I want to celebrate, so I’m going to give you all a chance to win this new paper collection by Basic Grey.

Here’s the catch (yah, there’s always a catch) ~ tell me something that you are thankful for.  I am thankful that my daughter is in remission after battling 9 months of intensive chemotherapy to fight Leukemia.  I am thankful that she was able to start Kindergarten on time.  I am grateful that she has already made a few friends at school and that she comes home happy and ready to do her homework assignments with a smile. 

I will choose a winner next Tuesday night, September 9th, so please be sure and stop by here if you would like a chance to win.

A Page In Time Scrapbook – Design Team Call
If you have a passion for patterned paper and creating great designs this job may be for you!
What We’re About:
–  Visit us here
– We are a page kit club with our focus being on patterned paper. Although we offer Bazzill cardstock as an add-on to our customers, it is very seldom included in the kits.
– You will be joining a fabulous team of designers who are all super friendly and great to work with. 
– Our designers alternate months designing and working on something for the online newsletter.
Requirements for Applying:
– Send two double page layouts and two “extras” (cards, tags, altered projects) using scraps of your own original work to:  [email protected]  This is a gallery only, so no text please, but be sure and put YOUR name in the subject line so we know it belongs to you!  Submissions for layouts must be in jpeg/jpg form, 500 x 500 pixels and at least 72 dpi. For projects, no smaller than 500 pixels, please.  As you submit your creations, remember that our kit club consists mostly of patterned paper and a few embellishments. We’d love for that to be your focus, but it’s not required.   
– Email any links to online blogs, scrapbook resumes, and galleries to the following: [email protected]  Along with those links, please include your full name and email address.
– In your email, please include a list of current and past design teams you’ve been a part of.  It’s not a requirement that you have previous experience.  Also, we’d love to hear a little about you!   Share with us your scrapbook experience, your style, your strengths you believe you could bring to our team and anything else you want to share!
SUBMISSION DEADLINE:  Please submit your designs and application by September 21st. Our new design team members will be announced October 1st.
*All International submissions will be accepted.
APIT Design Team Expectations:
– On the design month team members are required to create two double page layouts and at least two projects, i.e. cards, tags, mini books or altered items using scraps from the kits. 
– On the newsletter month we will ask for your help for creating articles for the online newsletter section (this is a new feature we are adding with the addition of new design team members).  
– Designers receive a kit every other month to design with. Three kits are included, you are required to use two of them per requirements passed down through our design team coordinator. Design Team discounts are given for extras and off month kits. 
– Because we are a page kit club, when creating designs you may use only what is included in the kits for the two double page layouts. Computer generated titles are accepted. Die-cut shapes and titles are also accepted as long as paper from the kits are used.  Additional items may be used on any extras or projects made with the scraps.
– Our Message Board is full of friendly gals who love to talk about A Page In Time kits, scrapbooking and day-to-day topics.  As a DT member, we would ask you to participate in the message boards, get to know the members and just chat!  
– Post your creations to the APIT Gallery.  We have a monthly section for your official designs, but we’d also love to see more of your work.  As a DT member, you’re encouraged to post your creations and leave praise for other members who post their work!
– Participate in our online crops, monthly challenges and QOTD postings and help promote APIT on other scrapbook sites that allow so.
– We are asking for a six-month commitment from our designers with the option at the end of that term to continue if both parties agree.
We look forward to learning about you and viewing your layouts and projects. All submissions will receive a reply. If you don’t hear back from us in three business days please resubmit your entry.  Good luck and have fun!
