Friday's Features...and a giveaway!

Share

For my first feature today I would like to introduce you to Jessica, from This, That, and Your Blog.

Jessica offers affordable blog design and here is what inspired her to start her business:

"I was first inspired by a friend to start digital scrapbooking (which ultimately led to more). I was instantly hooked on gathering some of my favorite pictures and putting them together on a page -- and I would occasionally blog about my creations.
Then, shortly after having my own blog designed, I decided that it was something I should look into as well! After all, I had all of the designing basics down from learning digital scrapbooking, I just needed to figure out how to install different designs into a blog! Plus, the extra money for books & tuition would be nice in the end! After non-stop tutorials before, during, and even shortly after my Spring Break, I finally had it all figured out!"

Want It? Jessica will offer a $10 discount to The Gift Closet readers on any blog design, custom or pre-made! This makes her custom blog designs only $25 and the pre-made blog designs only $10! Email Jessica at thisthatandyourblog at gmail dot com with the CODE: GCReader

I would also like to introduce you today to Jody from Knapp Scrapps. Jody creates adorable digital, customized photo cards & calenders!

I love this! It would make such a great gift!


Here is her inspiration:
"I was never much of a scrapbooker but I always enjoyed making my own cards. Then in 2005 I discovered Digital Scrapbooking. I was totally hooked. It is so easy to change and edit things digitally and there is no mess to clean up afterwards! Eventually I just got back to my roots and I started designing my own holiday cards, calendars and birth announcements digitally. I ended up doing a few more for friends and family which led to a partnership with a friend of mine that runs a photography studio, Bridge Photography (www.bridgephotography.com). I started designing products for her clients and things just sort of grew from there. I eventually opened up my own Etsy Shop (www.knappscraps.etsy.com) and I also partner with 2 photo printing labs (Bay Photo Lab and White House Custom Color) where I design templates for photographers. It has been a lot of fun and I really enjoy the design process and seeing card orders in print because I know someone has something special they get to mail out and share with their friends and families."

So creative!!

Want It? Jody is offering a 20% off coupon in her Etsy Shoppe! You can just email her and she can do a special listing with the reduced price. Jody can also do special listings at Etsy for any of the products on her blog! www.knappscraps.wordpress.com has wedding and birth announcement stuff there as well.
