This week Celeste has been helping us to streamline our processes. We all have photos, stories, and the desire. But time is another matter. Time runs quickly. Often two steps ahead of us, it darts this way and that way, always trying to stay just out of our grasp. And in that moment when we feel we might have just a minute to sit and create, when time is nearly in our grasp, it turns and impishly grins at us knowing that with just a phone call, a baby cry, a doorbell ring, anything really, and it will be gone again.
But this week, we are taming the time shrew. We are learning to better prepare so when we have a minute to sit we are prepared with photos, stories, design, and plan. All that's left is product. So we thought this week we should get you some. How about this?
The Color Me Daisy crew is generously providing one of lucky Write.Click.Scrapbook. reader with their July Kit, "Summertime Fun." Bright as a summer day, July's kit will inspire you to capture all your summer fun: days in the pool, playing at the beach, time spent outside. Summer in a box, July's kit is filled with bright and happy love from Basic Grey, Fancy Pants Designs, Sassafras Lass, Maya Road, Bazzill and more. You will be blooming with ideas all month long!
If you haven't tried Color Me Daisy, then now is a great time. Blooming with the best products from the finest compnies, their monthly scrapbooking and papercrafting kits include enough products to complete several layouts, cards and an altered project. They do the work so you can spend your time creating and preserving your memories. You may choose from 3 or 6 month subscriptions, or single kit purchases. Additionally, each month there are add-ons from which to choose, picked to perfectly coordinate with your kit. Browse through their store and check out the specials for great prices on past kits and add-ons. And with flat rate U.S. shipping and reasonable international shipping rates, you can load up lots of goodies to play with.
And the best part of acting now? One word. Chocolate. If you sign up now for a 6 month subscription, you get this chocolate kit. Free. (I know you can't eat it, but consider those saved calories as an added bonus. And if you must, I am sure you may lick your paper without too much consequence...)
Once your kit arrives, you can join in monthly challenges on the message board. Or spend some time in the Idea Gallery which blooms with creativity from the Daisy Girls design team. Little blossoms of wonder like Daydream by Aimee Kidd:
