First up, the random winner for yesterday's Kit Idea Challenge is...Stacy!

I would love to see a ballet kit, complete with tuts, slippers, flowers, and ribbons. Some shimmery/glittery elements would be great, and I'd love to see some BLACK as well as more girly colors. All of the dance kits I see are very pastel, and so many of my dance photos just seem really dark for those kits. Plus most of the girls wear black leotards and I'd love to see a dance kit that was more than just pink.

Next, the random winner for the Kayla's Template Challenge is...Lisa.

Day 3 - Tater Tot Challenges & Freebies

Hello everyone,

I'm back with today's final chance to win a GC for one product of your choice from the Designs by Tater store at Scrap Matters.

I hope you all are having fun playing along with us. I've had fun posting these challenges and playing while the boss is away. ;)

First, I need to remind you all about the entry deadlines from the last two days. You don't want to miss out on any chances to win more Tater products.
  1. Template Challenge - Post a comment to the blog entry posted here by Midnight MST Today, Dec 30th.
  2. Name That Product Game - Email your answers to tatertotsct at (replace the spaces and at with the @ sign) by 11:59 MST; Today, Dec 30th.
Since today is the last day we can play before Tater gets back, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas for new kits that we all would like Tater to design for us. Don't you think it's time she got back to work? Me too! If we can't play anymore neither can she, and she's going to need something to work on. ;)

That brings me to today's challenge. Your challenge today is to post ideas for a kit or kits that you would like Tater to design. Chances are you have some photos in your stash that you haven't found the perfect kit for yet. Here's your chance to let the designer know exactly what you want in a kit, so you can get those photos scrapped.

Just post a comment on this blog by Midnight MST tonight telling Tater what you would like to see in your kit. If you have ideas for more than one kit, post them in separate comments to get more entries into the contest. Please make sure your comments are fairly specific so Tater has something to work with. DON'T just post that you want more boy kits. Tell her what you would like to see in a kit... Things like a what colors, elements, papers, alphas or anything else you would like to see in your dream kit. You can post links to photos, whatever would inspire your new kit. Now, don't worry. You don't have to post a huge list, but do put some thought into what you would like to see.

OKAY, here's the part you have been waiting for. The winner from Janine's comment/favorite product/facebook challenge yesterday is......

Let the Fun Begin! December 2009 Tater Tot Challenges & Freebies - Day One

Hi everyone,

Kayla here... Tater's gone off playing, so some of us Tater Tots (CT members) have decided to hijack her blog and have some fun too. We can't let Tater have all the fun now can we? And the best part about the boss being gone is that YOU will be able to play along with us too. We have some GCs to Tater's store at Scrap Matters that we will be giving away, so come back each day from Dec 28th - Dec 30th to find out how you can enter for a chance to win.

Well, let's get this party started! Today we are going to give you a couple of ways to play along to win one of the two gift certificates that are up for grabs.

First up, is an easy way to enter. We want you to be able to stay informed about all the happenings at Designs by Tater, so you need to signup for the blog newsletter. Just enter your email address in the subscribe to my blog area on the right side of this screen. Follow the instructions to sign up and then come back and leave a comment saying that you signed up for the newsletter. Signup for the newsletter and come back with your comment BEFORE 1:00 am MST on Dec 29th, and you will be entered to win a GC for one product of your choice in the Designs by Tater store at Scrap Matters. The winner will be chosen by random generator and announced on this blog.

Next up, is a template challenge. It's a little more involved, but still a win win for everyone because we're giving you a template set, and an incentive to get some scrappin done, plus a chance to win a GC for one product of your choice in the Designs by Tater store at Scrap Matters. Wow that was a mouthful!

Anyway, here's how the template challenge will work. Download the templates and use one to make a layout. Post it in any online gallery of your choice and come back here and post a link to your layout in the comments. You have until Midnight MST on Wednesday, December 30th to post the link to your layout to be entered to win the GC.

Image is linked.

Feel free to modify the template as needed, and use any kit you would like. Of course, we love it when you use Designs by Tater products, but it's not required for this contest. The winner will be chosen by random generator and the GC will be awarded on this blog on Dec. 31, 2009.

Thanks for hanging in with me to the end of this post. Now, go signup for the newsletter and download the templates, you've got some scrappin to do!

Make sure you come back again tomorrow to see who won the Newsletter Signup Contest and play along with Janine for more ways to win great products from Designs by Tater.
