Today is Freebie Day!!

November 29, 2008

Yes you read that right. If you were speedy enough to upload at least one layout by today, you received a FREEBIE in your "My Downloads". Make sure to check your email because it gives detailed instructions on how to retrieve your exclusive pre-launch FREEBIE kit. Trust me, it's very simple. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. This fun and colorful kit was created by today's featured designer, Jessica.

Jessicaprofile What kind of artist are you? I’ve never really thought of myself as an artist, but I think I look at the world with a creative mind. 

How long have you been an artist/designer? I’ve always loved drawing.  I have sketch books I drew in as a kid.  My mom got me into a lot of art classes at our local art school,  and then I grew up and went to college majoring in art.  I changed my path to elementary education since I love teaching children, but I am glad I had experience in both since having kids is so much more fun with a creative mind.

What got you interested in this kind of designing (for digital)? I love having my calendar, shopping lists, photos, and videos all tucked neatly onto my computer.  That way they aren’t taking up space in my home.  This is why I like my art digital.Jessicaredballoon

Where do you find your inspiration for your designs? My kids, experiences, and my  surroundings inspire me.  I’m a simple person and it reflects in my designs.

What is your favorite thing to design and why? Anything that my 10 year old daughter says looks great when I finish, because she’s got creativity in her core.

Do you have any designers that you admire? My grandma is a keeper.  She keeps everything like magazine clippings, flowers which she used to press, and every little scrap of fabric you can imagine.  She always finds a way to make something out of “nothing”.  My mother in law has this wonderful gift also. Even though I’m not a keeper, I have always admired this free flowing creative approach, so I am trying to be less rigid and outlined.

Jessicaheart What has been your favorite kit to design so far and why? I really enjoyed designing my Party Time kit.  I just had fun.  I really love the stitching process.

And that's all the designers we are introducing for now. Since our launch date is right around the corner, we would LOVE to see what you created with your FREEBIE kit. When you upload your layout to the gallery, tag it with earlybirdfreebie (one word) so we can all see what you did with this  fabulous party kit. We would love to feature some of your layouts on launch day in the blog, so make it easier for us to search for them by adding that helpful tag.

We are really starting to revv up for our launch date on Monday, Dec 1. Let me give you the low down on what to expect from the TRP in the next couple of days...

- Later tonight, by 5pm PST to be exact (edit: what was I thinking? Crazy day! On or about 10pm PST I say!), we will be announcing our new CT Team

-Tomorrow, we will be introducing our site owners and posting the schedule of all the challenges/games. This means EVEN MORE chances to earn FREEBIES! So basically, when our store launches on Monday, the theme will be "tons of fun," "lots of FREEBIES," and "the coolest digtal creations you've ever seen."

UPDATE: This just in....I've been given the ok to share with all of you that if you purchase items on the first day of our launch, 12/1, you will receive that adorable Mocha and Blue alpha on the homepage of TRP for FREE...WOW...Christmas must really be early this year. More details on how to download your Mocha/Blue alpha will follow.

That's a lot of goody information for now. Don't forget to check back later tonight to find out who our CT team will be.

All my best, Kelly
