Day One of the Fun!! 2-Year Anniversary Party Begins!

Welcome to the Parttttaaayyyy! :) Tiddly Inks is turning two at the end of this month and so we thought we would kick off a bit early with a month-long party and a week of releases. :) I might suggest some coffee....this is a long post. LOL

Check out the list of activities below, and then read the longer description that follows as you have time....I promise I won't write this much every day. LOL

Here is a sneak peek to get you through all the writing....hehe

Our theme for this release is "Frame the Moment"---life's moment pass too quickly, and our handmade cards and scrapbook pages let those around us know we took that moment to think of them. :) Part of what I am trying to do this week is say thank you, to YOU, and let you know that you are a big part of so many of my moments! :)

Throughout this week, there will be a discount for those who want to go ahead and get something each day...at the end of the week, several of these images will be bundled together with an everyday discount, but you may use this discount code to get 10% off your whole order, whether it is big or small:

CODE: FRAMEMOMENTS

So now what else does this week hold in store as I try to say thanks for 2 fantastic years!! :)
  1. New images (and old ones too)
  2. Free frames/accent pieces from the DT
  3. Free images from me
  4. Prizes for those who comment
  5. And best of all, special guests on the Challenge blog

New images and old ones too

When I started Tiddly Inks, I opened an Etsy site and had to email the files out....ohh, that was fun!! LOL However, I think that in 2 years, I have learned a lot and changed my style quite a bit---hopefully, for the better. LOL  No matter how I started, I still LOVE doing it and I get to meet the most amazing people and see my art used in ways I would never imagine...it is quite a wonderful experience every day.

I can't thank each one of you enough for adding to my journey over the past few years...it means a lot that many of the people who were there 2 years ago are still here today!!! Thank you!

I currently have the Tiddly Inks basement shop, but I will be dropping that this summer, so this week I will be moving some of my favorite old images to the new shop if they haven't made it yet....So after all the new Wryns are introduced this week, I will re-introduce you to some oldies by goodies. 

Free frames from the DT

I have had and still have some of the most amazing designers out there...thank you to my fantastic and lovely Tiddly Inkers---without you, there would be little to recommend Tiddly Inks to others. :) You are the best! :)

Several members of these fantastic design team will be sharing free frames with you throughout the week as their way to say thanks for visiting them and participating. I will link the frames on this blog each day, but you will have to head to their blogs for a download. :) At the end of the week, I will have a zip file in the shop with all of the files. :)
Here is a preview! 

Free images from me

Throughout the week, you will be able to download free frames and images scattered in the shop and on the blog...
Here is a preview:

Prizes

We will have one random daily winner chosen from those who comment on this blog (to be announced at the end of the week) every day of this release...so every day you come back and comment, you increase your chances of being selected that day. We will have a total of 5 winners who will receive 2 images of their choice from this release.

There will also be a chance to win a bigger prize in the Frame this Moment Show Off challenge to be announced at the end of this week. You will create a card using your favorite frame or freebie image from this week and enter it in the link list....more details to follow

Special Guests

On the challenge blog, we will still have our normal challenges every other week, but we have added a new element of having special guests EACH THURSDAY during the month of April. We asked a few amazingly talented guests to join us to inspire us with their creations. :)

Okay, I promise it won't write this much every day, but I think that wraps up our week...shall we get started?

Okay, let's meet two new Wryns! (samples to follow near the end of the post)

Amanda's Arch (I think this would work well with You and Me too)
FIRST FREEBIE OF THE DAY....hehe

Shop HERE - for 24 hours it is free....:)
Now the frame below was created for you as a freebie by Lou of the Tiddly Inkers Design Team.
If you would like to download it, please visit her blog (CLICK HERE).

And to match, a set of "Frame the Moment" picture frames for sentiments or a background accent. Each Frame will also be separate inside the zip file, so you may use them as a background set or alone.

How is that for a first day??? Pretty good I think...:)
Well, we aren't quite done as we have some AMAZING samples to inspire you...and a delightful new DT member to introduce. We also have one more DT member to announce this week....come back on April 5 to meet our next new member. :)

Please meet the wonderful Annie Rose and the things she makes (which is the name of her cuteeee blog! :D Please stop by her blog and give her a big shout out!)





Arabella  (using one of today's picture frames)

Larissa (love the window in the center!) using Picture Perfect

Lou (using her very own heart frame freebie- download it on her blog)
Wryn - Fairy Wishes



Melissa using Lou's frame




Well, that's it folks....we are done for today!!!! It will be hard to top some of these amazing samples, but I bet we will see some spectacular ones tomorrow too, so check back in and see what is going on...and don't forget to comment on your way out. :)

Karen said...

Honey - I've been offline until now - busy moving into our lovely new home.
So it was (almost) worth missing these gorgeous new releases (hehe) and that fabulous creation of Amanda's while it was free (not sobbing much - honest) - but I'm heading over to Amanda's blog now to let her know how very, super clever she is anyway! Smiles.

As for the new Wryns... WOW!!! I don't have the words I need right now - except .....
THANK YOU!!! :0)
Love her/them... (Yes I've done some colouring while I've been cut off from blogland) no cards but lots of colouring. Smiles.

And these new beauties are divine.

Hugs to you (And congrats on coming so far.)
