April’s HUGE Blog Train!

Welcome to Duchess Designs!  Those of you who are collecting pieces from this kit have a very big journey still ahead of you.  I’m station #3 on the Blog Train Express! 

And for those who’ve never been here before, let me tell you a little about Duchess Designs!  I started designing just over a year ago, and opened in my first store on NSD weekend last year.  I now sell at and run the site Get Digi With It and I also sell at Elemental Scraps!  Some things that have been happening around here:

- I am participating in Inspiration Lane’s Desire 2 Inspire Contest!  Currently I am in the very last challenge of the contest and up against some very tough competition. We’re all very excited about seeing how our last kits come out and learning the results from our 6 weeks!

- Elemental Scraps will be going through a very excited site re-design this weekend!  The entire site will be down from Friday until Monday morning, when we open up with a fresh new look, A GREAT new Color Play, and LOTS and LOTS of awesome new releases!  Until then, you can shop the blowout sales at ES where retiring products are only ONE DOLLAR!

- And in the Spirit of Spring Cleaning, I’ll be going through a re-design of my own around here!  Stay tuned and check back often!

-Get Digi With It is welcoming 3 new designers today and tomorrow!  Click to check out their stores: FoxyDesigns, Kristi Westling, and Deiuwke (link coming soon)

- Every Thursday there is a Freebie Quickpage posted here on the blog.  For the month of April coming up, every Thursday will feature a quickpage from an upcoming kit of mine called “Besties”.  It will be released on April 6th at both stores, and is a collaboration with my BFF, Silly Beans Scraps.  If you come on every Thursday of April, you will end up with the entire Quick Album.

-Every Monday we give a Duchess Deal!  Here at the blog you can pick up a coupon code to get the item of the week for only ONE DOLLAR!  The coupon is good for only that day, so you’ll want to snatch it up!

Well, those are the things that are making me busy lately. :)  If you’re interested in keeping up to date on these things, go type in your email just to the left of this post and click subscribe.  The posts made here will go directly to your inbox without you having to make a special trip over here! :)

And now for your April Blog Train piece from me!  Click the image to download!
