Annual SAS Designer Competition

Last year at this time I was debating whether or not to enter the Stone Accents Studio SAS-y Lady contest. Wondering if I had what it takes to be a Designer. I knew I had the desire, the love, the creativity inside me but I wasn't sure I was good enough. Despite having worked with photoshop for more years than I'll ever admit to, digital scrapbook design, print quality work, was still new & very challenging to me.

But I entered. And I was one of the three winners! I lived & breathed SAS during the contest. I live & breathed SAS in the months after the contest as I got used to the life of a Designer. Things that take me minutes now, took hours then. What a difference a year makes.

But I still live & breath SAS. Now as the owner. Like I said in that original announcement life spins in mysterious ways. I am again beyond excited that it is time for the Stone Accents Studio SAS-y Lady contest. I am thrilled to be a the helm, versus a nail-biting contestant. I can't wait to see the new crop show their stuff, and I really can't wait to see who will join the team this year!

If you are at all interested in Designing, if you have some experience, or even if you sell at a store or two... I highly recommend joining in the fun! It is a fantastic learning experience, a super way to make friends and terrific exposure to a big audience. You can learn more, sign up HERE.

Just for fun I dug through my entries last year & picked out my favorite tidbit: my Fall Alpha created using the felt action by the fabulous Atomic Cupcake, enjoy:

I found your free alphas and I would like to invite you to be a designer on on my blog. It’s a totally free project that I put together to help give back to the digital scrapbooking community. We offer free alphas everyday. If you could take a moment and check out the designer call, I would be honored.

Have a great day!
