Challenges for YOU! Win Awesome Prizes!

Vintage Vicki, one of our Creative Team Members (and my BFF!), has introduced some fun Designer of the Month challenges for you at Heritage Scrap. The challenges are fun and the Prizes are AWESOME!

Here are the Details:

There will be THREE different ways to win...

1) First prize will be for using the most KITS from Victorian Rose in your layouts.

For example, if you make a layout and use pieces from five of my kits, you will get five points!! Remember to credit properly in the description portion of the layout posting and use 100% Victorian Rose Designs products.

If YOU are the lucky winner, this kit will be named after you (or a friend, or grandchild or whomever you choose). It will be done in your favorite colors and you can choose what style the kit will be and offer suggestions for what types of elements and papers you would like in the kit. When the kit is finished, it will be put in my Heritage Scrap Store for sale! (YOU will get it free!) :)

Custom Page Kit will include:
6 papers; and
6-8 elements.

2) Second prize will be for posting the most layouts, one point per layout.

Layouts have to be 100% Victorian Rose Designs products. The prize for this winner will be a custom Word Art Set made just for YOU from Victorian Rose Designs!

If YOU are the lucky winner of the Custom Word Art Set, you will choose the theme. Are you making a scrapbook for your daughter? Maybe you would like an Overlay with her name? Her name done in several styles, fonts and finishes, her favorite quote or Bible verse? Her High School Class Motto? You tell me and I'll make it! Maybe you are scrapping your parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary and would like Word Art for their scrapbook? Or a class reunion? Or a travel album? You get to choose!

Word Art set will include:

At least
1 overlay;
5-6 titles; and
2-3 quotes.

3) Third prize will be a totally random drawing out of all of the layouts submitted to the Victorian Rose Designs gallery this month that are made with 100% Victorian Rose Designs products and that are properly credited in the description of the layout. The prize for this winner will also be a customized product from Vintage Vicki. (See the Designer of the Month Forum at Heritage Scrap for more details!) You will have to register at Heritage Scrap to read the forums if you haven't already. (It's free!)

The gallery is filling up already! Hurry over to get started in these challenges to win these very cool prizes! :)

Designer of the Month Bio

Vicki Pasterik of Victorian Rose Designs has been an avid scrapbooker for nearly thirteen years, starting first with paper scrapping, and then switching completely to digital a few years ago. In February of 2009, she joined the design team at Heritage Scrap, first focusing on Word Art and then adding alphabets and full page kits to her store.

Vicki worked professionally as a graphic designer for many years and then traded her ink and paper in for needles and thread to start an embroidery business under the same name, Victorian Rose Designs. When she and her family moved in 2002, she found that she needed to devote her time to helping to grow their family farm, where they raise free range chicken, beef, lamb, pork and children. ;) She closed her embroidery business and used her creative energy to promote the farm through website, logo and literature design. Now that the farm business is underway, she finds that designing and scrapping helps her to relax after a busy day of homeschooling five of her eight children, the youngest of which was born in December.

When Vicki was in high school, she started working on her family tree for a school project and was hooked. She contacted a cousin who was also working on their genealogy and they teamed up to track down their ancestors together. She has now created an extensive Heritage Album where she gets the genealogy information they have found out of the filing cabinet drawer and into a format that can easily be shared with other family members.

When Vicki found Heritage Scrap, she immediately realized that it was a site that combined both her love of scrapbooking and her genealogy hobby. She loves the romantic, Victorian style and prefers old things with character over things that are brand new. Her vintage farmhouse is decorated in the same romantic cottage style that adorns her scrapbook pages.

In addition to scrapping and designing, Vicki enjoys once a month cooking, scouring flea markets and antique stores for vintage finds, taking walks on country roads and Bible studies and church activities with friends. She keeps in touch with many of them through Facebook and you can find her new fan page there along with freebies for Facebook Fans.

Vicki hosts the Life Book Chat here at Heritage Scrap on Monday Nights at 9 pm ET in the Heritage Scrap Chat Room. Life Book participants choose one of their ancestors and each week they add another page to their subject's Life Book, following a schedule that Vicki has created.
Each topic is discussed in the chat, a winner is chosen from the previous week's gallery to receive a coupon for the Heritage Scrap store, and chat attendants also receive a freebie. The current Life Book Class will be wrapping up in a couple weeks, but Life Book III is set to begin in the Fall.
