Kat's Birthday Celebration: Brag Book Exchange

Hi this is Dani, otherwise known in the digi-world as NotAVampireLvr. This week to celebrate Kat's birthday, I'll be hosting a brag book exchange using Kat's new freebie kit, Polka Dot Party!

This kit is just so fun and I thought a brag book page exchange would be perfect so that we can all have some ready-made brag book pages for your next family birthday party.

Pages should be created and saved at 5" x 7" and 300 ppi, landscape or portrait is fine.

Brag Book Pages must be designed with Polka Dot Party or another current kit designed by The Scrappy Kat.

Please save them in .png format.

Brag Book Pages must have minimal writing on them. Please leave off any titles or journaling or any wording that would limit the use of the page in any way.

Please name your files as follows: yourname_kitname_bb.png.
As an example, mine would be

Email your brag book page(s) to me at with BBE in the subject line.

If your email does not support larger attachments, you have a few options:

Upload it to a place like mediarfire or dropbox (those are the two I'm most familiar with and can assist with) and email that link; or try an email account that allows larger attachments like g-mail.

Please upload your brag book page (preferably complete with photos, so we can enjoy seeing a completed layout) in YOUR gallery and The Scrappy Kat gallery.

The challenge begins today. To participate I need all layouts to me by Sunday, March 3.

Once everyone has sent in all their pages I will zip them all out within 1 calendar week.

Good luck, and I can't wait to see what you make!

Freebie Kit Polka Dot Party...48 Hours Only!!!

Hi scrappers, have I got a freebie for you today.  I realized that I hadn't offered a full-size kit in quite some time and figured that my birthday would be a great excuse to do so.  :)  Polka Dot Party is inspired by my son's 6th birthday party this year.  The colors were very fun and bright and I thought they would make a great polka dot themed kit.  It is called Polka Dot Party because it is of course filled with polka dots, but there are also some party themed elements in there too.  I think you will find this kit will be perfect for scrapping lots of fun layouts and not just limited to birthday theme. 

Make sure to read all the way down to the end of this post, to catch all the pieces of this kit, my CT freebies, and to find out about special birthday events that are being hosted tomorrow, Monday the 25th at STS (including a speed scrap and Bingo).



Here are some fun layouts created by myself and some of my creative team members.


Below are some great freebies from my creative team members, check back later if they aren't up yet on their blogs.

Hope you can make it to my speed scrap tomorrow, Monday the 25th.  It will be a fun time, you'll get a great layout done, and you'll pick up the below set of paper stackers to go along with Polka Dot Party.  

Then, later in the afternoon, you can attend the Bingo game being hosted by my creative team manager, Dannethia.  Everyone who submits a card and shows up for the game will receive my mini kit Let Down Your Hair and 1 lucky winner will receive a $20 coupon to my store!

Click the card below or visit this thread ASAP to find out how to download your card & play!

Starting today, we will be having our last weekly blog challenge for my birthday celebration.  It is a brag book exchange using this freebie kit. If you are a fan of brag books, make sure to participate, you can find the post here.

Now, for sticking around and reading this whole post, you can head over and like my Facebook page to download this set of cardstocks for Polka Dot Party.

P.S.  Make sure to check out my store too, as it is 38% off in celebration of my special day!
