Oh how I love a good cheesy pun, haha.
Happy May 1st everyone and welcome to my stop on the Everyday Storyteller Blog Hop! If this is your first time stopping by my digi slice of the web, let me take a moment to say hello & welcome!
I’m Lynnette aka Nettio of Nettio Designs and I’m a child-free, tech-lovin’ digital scrapbooker/designer who has a passion for bold colors & patterns, clean designs and modern storytelling. Here at Nettio Designs I write about my adventures (and misadventures) in design and share tips, tricks and digital scrapbooking templates designed to inspire you to embrace your scrapbooking awesomeness. So glad to have you here!
If you’re one of my regular readers who hasn’t heard about Everyday Storyteller yet, Everyday Storyteller is a digital idea book releasing this Friday, May 4th. The book, the brainchild of the talented Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper.com, features 33 practical ideas from real world scrapbookers and includes all kinds of tips from photography to storytelling and everything in-between.
In preparation for the big launch this weekend, all of the contributors of the book are participating today, May 1st in a blog hop where they’ll be sharing a tip or trick that ties into their contribution from the book. It’s like a mini sneak peek!
My stop on the Everyday Storyteller blog hop is a bit different from everyone else as unlike most of the participants, I am not actually a contributor to the book. Instead I’m the graphic designer mastermind who’s been working furiously behind the scenes to make sure all the awesome tips & tricks from our contributors are dressed up in their Sunday best and looking as awesome as possible.
Which lucky for you also means I’ve had a front row seat to all the action as the book has come together, so I thought rather than sharing an everyday storytelling-related tip or trick, I’d offer you a little sneak peek into the design of the book.
Think you can handle it? Because this peek just might blow your mind with it’s clean design goodness.
Ok, here ya go…
I know, I can hear the oohs and awes already.
Ok, to be fair, it’s not much of a peek. But I can’t have the boss lady getting mad at me for giving away the surprise!
But what I can tell you is this book is seriously AMAZING. Jennifer and the team have outdone themselves and this is definitely NOT something you’re going to want to miss out on.
So if you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you hop on over to the Everyday Storyteller website and get yourself signed up for the V.I.P. list ASAP. The big launch party reveal is happening Friday night and from what I hear, there’s going to be prizes involved!
***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED***
