We're thrilled to have four fantastic hostesses to help us with our two-day online festivities -- a first-time project for SG. We'll be adding a chat feature here on the blog, and these four will be keeping the online party hopping.

These ladies are talented, for sure. They are real-life scrapbookers who have become well-known in the online world for their knowledge of products, techniques, and trends. They're also full of personality and the love of papercrafting and people. They'll be bursting with inspiration, encouragement, and best of all, they'll have tons of prizes to give away both days!

Can't wait! Can I just confirm what time zone you ladies are in? Is it Central or EST?

Scrapbook Generation said...

We're Central time. Glad you'll be joining us! -- Debbie

Celeste B. said...

What is the deadline for the challenges to be finished/uploaded?

LauraB said...

Is the Thickers automatically added to our order when it is shipped? I was placing an order this morning and didn't see it on the invoice so was going to wait and place the order once I found out.
Thank you!

Stacey Atchley said...

Yes the Thickers will be automatically added - you don't need to do anything but shop! ;)
