Featured Designer Challenge w/ a FREEBIE!

Happy Tuesday all!  Just popping by to remind you all that theStudio’s March 1-15 Featured Designer Challenge is happening NOW!!!  This round we get to learn a little more about the talent behind Deli Scraps by Min !!  She has a beautiful Sampler Freebie for you all to use this round!


Min, the talent behind Deli Scraps by Min, is our next FEATURED DESIGNER! Oh, what can I say about Min, I love Min & I love her designs! Her kits are so full of character, just like her! If you’re looking for something absolutely FUN to scrap with, Min’s kits are definitely for you! Her kits are oh-so-playful for that touch of whimsy to add to your pages! BUT! Min is also very versatile and she has some truly gorgeous, classic kits, too! Her beautiful Sampler Kit she is supplying for the challenge is just that! The full kit is not quite ready to be released just yet, but she has given us all a little taste test of the gorgeousness to come with her Sampler! And, one lucky person has a chance to WIN this stunning kit just for posting a layout!

Here’s a look at the Pansy Sampler Freebie she is offering for the challenge: all pieces in this sampler will be included in the full size kit to come

And, that’s not all! To help you get better acquainted with Min’s designs, she’s having a SALE!!

(just a note: all sales exclude collab kits)
