Scrapbook Daisies News and a sketch challenge!

If you are a Scrapbook Daisies kit club subscriber or member of the message board, you should have recently received an email from Martha describing some exciting changes to Scrapbook Daisies. In case you missed the email, here is a summary of the changes:

The brick and mortar store in Long Beach, California is doing extremely well. Lots and lots of the latest and greatest products have been arriving to the store, and seats for classes and crops have been filling very quickly! We are so very thrilled for Martha and Tony.

If you're in the area, we'd love for you to stop by.

The online kit club division of Scrapbook Daisies will be undergoing some significant, positive changes beginning May 1st. Hey... that's today! Don't worry... Scrapbook Daisies will continue to make available one of a kind kits using the latest and greatest products. Details of the changes are as follows:

As of now, kits may be revealed at any given time, rather than adhering to a set schedule. Some months there will be one kit revealed and other months there may be two or three kits revealed. There may even be some months where no kit is revealed.

New kits will be advertised here on the blog, on our Facebook page, at Willow Traders, and on the design team members' blogs. Kits will be sold via a PayPal button right here on the blog on a first-come, first-served basis. They will not be produced in mass quantity, so be sure to keep on the lookout for the kits when they're revealed. The Basic Grey kit of the month will continue as scheduled.

There are also going to be changes to the way our challenges are managed. Everything is going to be streamlined right here on our blog! There will no longer be a need to comb through various posts on the message board to find activities to play along with. In fact, the message board will be phased out completely by the end of May. Feel free to continue to visit and post there for now, but by June all activity should be running from right here on our blog.

Look for our fun challenges to be posted here on the blog every Sunday starting on May 1st. Yeah! That's today! A winner will be selected shortly after the end of each month. You have to participate to win :)

The design team that will continue with this new journey includes:
Misty Willis
Kristine Berc
Guiseppa Gubler

The brick and mortar store design team includes:
Nicole Capote
Ly T. Le
Jenny Stockard
Mary Ann Jenkins
Scrapbook Joe

and of course our Lead Daisy!
Martha Galvez

By the way, did you know that Creative Scrappers is currently celebrating 3 years of creativity?! Incredible!

The DT daisies love, love, love this sketch. We felt it was screaming to us! We hope you love it too.
