THE DAILY DIGI is so excited for today's SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT! It is none other than the fabulous DIGI DARE team! I will admit a little bias on this one...I LOVE the DIGI DARES. I served on the team for a little over a year, and then after a six month break, rejoined. I love the DIGI DARES because they share my passion...to challenge people to tell their stories, try new things, and think creatively. Some of my very favorite pages have been created as a result of a dare. But before we get into all of that, let's see what the team came up with us for this month's THE DIGI FILES.
Isn't this SO cute? I just love all the bright and happy colors. And you know what? This is a DIGI DARE exclusive...so after this month it will be gone for good! Grab this kit, along with a bunch of other great stuff, for just $5.00. You will get a jam-packed "bag" of goodies and you will also be helping to support the site and its vision.
You already got to see one page I made with this kit for National Scrapbooking Day! And here is another...I just couldn't resist all the fun colors!
In addition to this awesome kit, you ALSO get a 42 page pdf file of SIX NEW, NEVER SEEN BEFORE DARES and the pages the team created for them! It is totally inspiring! I loved all the dare ideas.
History of the site:
Back on August 25th, 2006, some of your fellow digiscrappers joined forces to bring the digital community a fun and fresh digi-scrapbook dare site. The site, idealized by Kate Hadfield (the fabulous and illustrious designer herself and winner, Digital's Next Top Scrapper: Level 1 in 2006) is meant to be a fun place for digital scrappers to join in on challenges and win a prize each week for being inspired. At the end of 2007, the site was taken over by Traci Reed, a veteran designer and digital scrapper with almost 5 years of designing and scrapping under her belt. Since its start, The Digi Dares has gone through it's fair share of staff, but one thing remains the same, we're here to inspire scrappers to step out of their box!
Here's how it works:
- Each week the team presents a new dare and some "dare flair" -- little things that can/cannot be on your page. The dare and the dair flair exist to help you think creatively, stretch your comfort zone, and to jump in and try new things.
- Scrap your page (using any kits/elements you want), upload it to a gallery, and then put your link in the comments section of that weeks post.
- Everyone who participates that week receives a coupon to the weekly sponsor and then everyone is entered into the drawing to receive the grand prize of a $10 to coupon to ALL of the sponsor stores!
- How great is that? A site that challenges you, stretches you, and helps you get your stories scrapped and then they ALSO give you coupons for doing it! LOVE it!
Here is what it looks like: This is one of the dares out of the pdf file in THE DIGI FILES.
And here was my response to the dare:
See, it's that easy (and that fun!) This is a page I have wanted to do for a while. Our family has so many little words and phrases that are every day for us but always make other people look at us like we are crazy. They are part of our story and I wanted to document them...and now I have!
CHECK BACK TOMORROW WHEN WE GET TO "MEET" ALL THE DARERS AND SEE THEIR FAVORITE LAYOUTS!
If you want to be truly inspired, head on over to the DIGI DARES and look through previous dares. There are some AMAZING challenges in there! And if you want to be more involved or learn more about the DIGI DARES, try some of these links:
And be sure to come visit this Friday, when I will be hosting the dare. I have already done my page and am SO happy with it!
Thanks, DIGI DARE team for being part of THE DAILY DIGI this month! You know I love you and find you so incredibly inspiring. I hope that all of our readers will think so too!
P.S. In the orignal pdf file download, a layout on page 33 by Christine Newman was incorrectly attributed to Aggie Aviso. It has been corrected. She rocked the dare :)
