Skip to content birthday bloghop HERE & NOW!

Fri June 18 2010

*** SUNDAY 10PM UPDATE*** Did you come for the bloghop?! Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hate to tell you, but sadly must, that the Birthday Bloghop 2010 has now ended and all bloghop freebie links have expired.

If you were here earlier and left a sweet comment, then my whole heart of thanks to you!! What a bunch of Spragueground digiscrappin’ sweethearts you all are!  I think it’s safe to say that an AWESOME time was had by all!

Don’t go too far though – there is always awesome stuff in the store, and always More In Store Monday {yay! that’s tomorrow!} AND birthday challenges are still ongoing {click on the image below to be taken to the latest challenge} — so pop on over to and join in the fun!

Thanks for making my first Jessica Sprague bloghop and quickpage giveaway such a roaring and awesome success!

**If you arrived here and haven’t started at the beginning of the bloghop, you need to go HERE to go to Jessica’s blog to start at the very beginning {it’s a very good place to start}, then keep hopping along and collecting all the awesome kits and quick pages along the way!** is celebrating turning 3 today with a massive and awesome birthday bloghop!  The designers and creative team members have teamed up to deliver one HUGE and awesome collaborative kit: “You Are Awesome!”  AND – because Jessica is always awesome – there’s also more to the hop than meets the eye. Each zip folder has a little goodie in it — collect them all, arrange the quote, email it to the awesome Tori at and they have a super secret and super awesome prize to give away! Here are the details you need to know {awesome FREEBIEs for you just a further down this post}:

I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this! When I started digital scrapbooking, {about 3 years ago!}, Jessica’s “Photoshop Fridays” on her blog (archives here and new tutorials here) were so helpful – I learned I could tackle some photo tweaking and some PSE tips, ones that I still use today. Being part of the Creative Team at really is like a dream come true, because she’s helped me learn how to do what I do!  And now I’m so excited to be able to share some of my work with you, in a quickpage created especially for this bloghop, because you ARE awesome! I used a little bit of all the designer’s You Are Awesome mini kits – which you are going to L.O.V.E. Trust on that.

for you, because You Are Awesome: THREE freebies in ONE!

FIRST, a 12×12 quickpage – gorgeous colours with a neutral background that will show off any photo you want to treasure and celebrate. here’s my take on it – I journaled in the top right corner with a quote and a short sentiment (that’s also a phrase this kid has taken to saying lately):

ALSO for you, a 4×6  Father’s Day quick card! I’m terrible at getting cards and gifties in the mail on time, so I have indeed been known to whip something like this up, upload it to a one-hour photo-printing store and have the recipients pick it up at their own location – a tad faster than regular mail 😉

AND ALSO, and since there are lots of awesome things and people to celebrate, a 4×6  quick card suitable for any occasion!  Easy to add your own title or greeting, and personal message + photo:

ALL three bundled up for you as a freebie to celebrate how awesome you are and how awesome you have helped to make over the past three years! Woohoo!!

{CLICK} on the preview folder image above to begin your download!!  sorry links have expired, but you can buy the kits with the supplies i used to make my quickpages in the store at!

Ifyou’re already hopping in order, your next stop is Creative Team Member Emily’s blog My Little Lane { <– click right there), and I’ll only say that what she’s got ready for you is so, so cute! Whee!

Thanks for hopping by!  See you at the Spragueground!
