U R Here Project Kit sneak peek #2

Here is the second little sneak peek at the travel mini album that I am creating for August. This project kit is full of some of my favorite products and full instructions on how to create your own album. I am having so much fun playing with all the bits and pieces that come in this project kit, vellum, clear acrylic and fabric make for a very happy girl!

The project kit will be available to our subscribers on July 28th when our other August add ons go up for sale, and any remaining kits will be available to the general public on August 1st.

I'm playing catch up from being gone all week, and it's Zachy's birthday celebration today, (can't believe that he is 7 already!) but I promise to post about my CHA misadventures  tomorrow!

The boss is away at CHA giveaway and promotion!

I am on a train right now heading to CHA in Chicago to check out all the great new product. I can't wait to see all the new lines up close and pick out what we will have in our upcoming Cocoa Daisy kits. I have to admit this is one of the best parts of my job! 

So in celebration of all the new Cocoa Daisy goodies that are coming I thought we should do a fun giveaway, something that will help you store and organize the bits and pieces you get in your Cocoa Daisy kits. 

Recently I saw this fabulous 4 tier revolving tray on Pinterest and had to have one - my paint dabbers and chalk inks needed a home! Well, I am so tickled with mine that I had to share a couple with our Daisies. 

We are giving away TWO of them, one to our current subscribers and one to any new subscribers. Oh, and not only are we giving away the 4 tier tray, but I'm also going to add a few goodies from our store to help you fill it up!

Here is all you need to do:
Current Subscribers will be entered to win by purchasing a minimum of $25 worth of product from the store (this includes reveal night add ons) anytime from now until August 4th. Simply put Tray Giveaway in the comments section when you check out.

New Kit Subscribers will be entered to win by signing up for a 6 Month Kit Subscription. Just enter Tray Giveaway in the comments section when you check out.

Want a another chance to win? Refer a friend to Cocoa Daisy! Have a friend sign up for a 6 Month Kit Subscription, enter your name and Tray Giveaway in the comments section and you will both be entered. Every time a new friend signs up, your name gets entered again in the drawing.

We thrilled to now offer you the option of using Paypal when you do your shopping with us.

Be watching our Facebook and Twitter for CHA updates all this week! Have fun while I'm away.

Best wishes,

Lots happening at Cocoa Daisy!

I am about to dig and start packing for my CHA trip tomorrow, I love the summer show because it is so close and I can get there by train. I love traveling by train, so much more relaxing than flying! I also need to pack for the boys as they will be seeing their Grams and Poppy for a week :)
So excited to see all the new product, but most of all to see all my friends and have some fabulous dinners, another bonus of CHA is that you do so much walking during the day that you can have nice big dinners without the guilt.

Before I go start packing though, I thought I should share some of the sneaks and happenings going on at Cocoa Daisy. First the sneaks! 

Our August kit is for anyone who’s ever traveled across regions, continents, or the world. It’s for those who simply dream of setting out to explore.
Inspired by the artwork of Santa Fe based artist Mark White, we’ve blended oranges, yellows, and degrees of blues together to create a scrapbooking masterpiece. Featuring exclusives from Maya Road and Ormolu, along with newly released product from Heidi Swapp, Basic Grey and My Mind’s Eye, we know you’ll love sitting down and scrapping with our colorful Santa Fe Sunset.
Our add ons are named after two Santa Fe art galleries, and we’ve included a special travel based project kit designed by Christine. Check our message boardsFacebook, and Twitter for more sneaks from the Design Team as the month progresses!
You can see closer views of the tags on the Cocoa Daisy blog here.
I can't leave out this month's stamps - which are awesome!! Wait till you see just how big that map stamp is! Here is a little peek at those:

Our sweet Nat Kalbach is leaving Cocoa Daisy, I will miss her so much, but wish her all the best in her future endeavors. Thankfully I get to see her at CHA and give her a big hug :) With an empty DT space needing to be filled I believe we found the perfect new addition to our team, Jody Ferlaak is joining us beginning with the August kit. I have know Jody since the "Michigan Sisters" would get together and scrap, our little group has all gone their own ways but we had some fun times scrapping together! You can read more about Jody and see a few examples of what she created with the July kit on the Cocoa Daisy blog.We aim to please at Cocoa Daisy and after having a number of people inquire about using Paypal to check out at the store, I am thrilled to say we now accept Paypal!

OH! And did I mention a very special giveaway we are going to have? Well I can't tell you yet 
(I know it's not fair to tease) but I will give you a hint:

Watch for the Cocoa Daisy newsletter tomorrow for the details of our special giveaway/promotion.

You can sign up for the newsletter on the homepage of our site 
(just scroll down to the bottom).

OK, now I've got to go feed the troops, finish the laundry and get packing! Have a great week everyone!
