Today's set reveals Brrrnard, Brrrad and Brrryce, all set for a Birthday Party. Check out all the cool items available in this set:

Welcome to our 5th Birthday Party Blowout!


Scribbles Designs is celebrating its 5th birthday this month! 
 On January 15, 2013, we had our very first challenge.
Five years later we're still going strong.
In fact, we've grown yet again!

Our team is now larger with a total of nine full time members!
While I (Lisa) have been beside Sandy's side since the beginning, 
Nick came on just four months later in May of 2013,
and Suze started the following year in Jan. 2014. 
Diane Louise joined us after a DT Call in March of 2016 and then 
both Pat and Pippa joined us after being a guest for a three month term--
Pat in April of 2016 and Pippa a year later in April of 2017!
Most recently we have acquired two new people--
Helen & Lori--who officially start today!

In addition to the Bi-Weekly GDT Showcases that we added last year, 
we also now have a Monthly Inspiration Post where we feature 
extra projects made by DT and GDT alike!
Our Freebie Fridays has transitioned into a Flash Freebie
and we've increased the number of Challenge Blogs we sponsor each year!

The store has grown to sell over 780+ Scribbles Designs images 
plus there are over 150 FREEBIES!
The store continues to sell Scribble Doodle Designs
(a collaborative effort between Sandy S. & Lisa D.)
and is still home to selling designs by D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles as well!

We've accomplished a lot in
FIVE YEARS
and we plan on accomplishing a lot more!!!

This year, we have decided to celebrate with a combined 
Challenge AND New Release Party!


STAND BY...
 Our 5th Birthday Party Blowout
IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!



First things First!  Tomorrow, January 16th, will be the first day of a THREE DAY New Release Party showcasing three fabulous new sets that Sandy has been hard at work putting together!

On each of those days we'll spotlight one of the new sets along with providing samples from each of the Design Team Members and Guests for this quarter. While normally I'd have introduced the new guests on the second Saturday of the month (which was the 13th), our two new guests will instead be joining us for the New Release Party.

On each day of the New Release Party you will have the opportunity to win one of the images from the set. In fact, each of the DT Members and our Guests will be giving out the main image they used on their project to one lucky commenter on their individual blog. Then, for your chance to earn the full set of the day, you'll need to leave comments on the individual blogs listed PLUS on the New Release post itself.

So, GET READY to be blown away by all the new
images and samples we have lined up for you!



Next Up, today will also mark the start of our latest challenge! Be sure to play along for your chance to win some wonderful prizes! One Lucky winner will have the opportunity to win ALL THREE of the sets released this week, by following our instructions carefully!


GET SET, to enter a project into our challenge!



But that isn't all!  Over the course of the next month, we're going to have some limited time freebies, possibly a flash freebie and some special events you can participate in for your chance to win additional goodies! Be sure to follow us by email so that you don't miss a thing!


GO!!!!!!!
 Our 5th Birthday Party Blowout
starts right now and YOU are all invited!!!



As mentioned above, we are going to start today off with our regularly scheduled challenge. Here is what you need to know to enter:

It is time to go and grab a party hat and light up exactly FIVE candles on the birthday cake! While you are at it, hang some streamers and blow up a few balloons too. Scribbles Designs has just turned FIVE and you are all invited to join in the birthday celebration!

In honour of this special occasion, it is only fitting that the theme of our challenge be all about birthdays--yours, mine, a family member's, a friend's, or even an acquaintance's. Hey, maybe you even want to create a card just to wish Scribbles Designs a happy birthday! It doesn't matter who's birthday you are celebrating or how many candles are on the cake. Simply design a card commemorating someone's birthday, or create some other kind of project that celebrates the spirit of birthdays. Maybe you'd like to make some invites for a birthday party of someone who'll be celebrating soon. Perhaps you'd like to design some decorations for an upcoming birthday party. Maybe there is a scrapbooking layout from a recent birthday celebration that you'd like to finally put together and get into an album. Whatever birthday themed project you decide to create, we'd love for you share it with us. Let the birthday blowout begin!

We are so thankful that you are here with us on our little spot in blog-land today and are hopeful that you'll be able to join us for this special challenge. Any questions about the challenge? Please read our Rules located in the right sidebar.

A Big Welcome to our Newest Design Team Members!

Hey there folks! I'm pleased to announce that we have two new members joining our team full time.

Helen N., from Made by Helen,  and Lori S., from My Happy Life,will officially be joining us for the start of the next challenge. I thought that it would be nice to get to know them a little bit before that time.


http://craftinghelen.blogspot.com/

My name is Helen and I live in a small town called West Kirby which is in the north west of Britain - the nearest big city to us is Liverpool.  I work for an organisation called The Abbeyfield Society which is a world-wide charity providing care for older people.  I'm an Activities Coordinator and I work in a care home and two sheltered houses providing activities for the residents.  We craft, play dominoes, do crosswords and do chair exercises as well as enjoying music and films together.  I've been making cards for many years and love stamping, working with digi stamps and colouring with Promarkers.  I'm really looking forward to being part of the Scribbles Designs team.

 You can visit Helen at her personal blog



 http://loriannie670.blogspot.com/

Hello! My name is Lori and I live in Missouri with my husband and our two sons. My husband and I have been married for almost 28 years and we have a daughter (27) and two sons (19 and 17). My daughter is married to her high school sweetheart and they have a daughter (4) that I get the pleasure of keeping during the day while her Mommy teaches.

I was introduced to scrapbooking by my sister who bought me a Creating Keepsakes magazine when my oldest son was born back in 1998. I have been hooked ever since! Card making soon followed and I love how quick and easy they can be to make.

I love to spend time in my craft room creating - it is what really relaxes me after a long day.I have a pretty clean and simple style, but I do love to add some layers once in awhile, too.

I am so excited and honored to be a part of the Scribbles Designs Design Team and I can't wait to get started!

 You can visit Lori at her personal blog

Please join me in welcoming Helen and Lori to our team! If you have a chance, why not pop over and say hi! You can find each of their personal blogs either by clicking on their name header or their blog address listed above.
Would you like to join our team? Don't forget that our DT Call is still going on until Feb. 15th and we'd love to bring on some additional members. You can find all the details you need in order to apply by clicking HERE.
Before I go, be certain to join us again on Monday, January 15th, when we'll be back with a new challenge and the start of our 5th Birthday Party Blowout! There will be lots of extra prizes for you to win so be sure to come and see us then.

Happy crafting until that time!!!

Challenge #60 Midway: Welcome to the North Pole



Challenge #60
Welcome to the  
North Pole
Midway


Hello and Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to the midway point of our current challenge. Here is a refresher of what the theme is all about:

Welcome to the North Pole. It is the original home place of Brrr and Brrnice before they moved to Canada. If you take a look and follow the road to the right, you'll come across the Penguin Pavilion. This is a favourite haunt of our beloved Brrr Family, and any time they can manage, they try and take a trip home to visit with Santa and all their relatives still living here!

If you glance to the left, you'll find the road that will take you to Santa's Workshop. Unfortunately, even though Christmas has just past, there is still lots for Santa and the Elves to take care of. Many lists that need to be rolled away, and tons of supplies that need to be packed up and put into storage. As such, there just isn't any time for one of the Elves to take you on a proper tour but you are more than welcome to take a look around by yourself. Just be sure not to touch anything or you will end up on Santa's naughty list for next year and you don't want that to happen. Before you head on your way back home, be sure to grab a cup of cocoa and a sugar cookie from Mrs Claus. There seems to be lots left over from the holiday celebrations. Plus, she has been pretty lonely lately and could use a quick chat!


Since The North Pole is such a special place for the Brrr family, they would really like your creations for this challenge to include an element that might be found in the North Pole (fantasy version of course). Examples include: elf type images, Santa, Mrs Claus, presents, toys, images that have a sign for the North Pole in them, penguins of course, reindeer, polar bears, etc.

The Brrr Family will actually be adding their votes to the Top Picks for this challenge so you'll definitely want to do them proud!        


There are still two weeks left in the challenge and we hope that you will be able to join us here on our spot in blog-land. We have had nine great entries so far this month but we'd love to see some more!

Our incredibly talented women are back to showcase their amazing creative work featuring projects related to our Welcome to the North Pole theme. We hope that you will enjoy the Scribbles Designs images and the creative direction that ensues. 

Any questions about the challenge? Please read our Challenge Rules located in the right sidebar.
