Welcome to our very special Homecoming Parade!

Here at The Digichick, our history is rich with talent and we’ve put together a special parade to showcase some of that talent. Joining us, as honored guests (and alumni!), are some of the former designers who have spent time at The Digichick.

The team (Hybrid Chicks, site CT, Admin and even a few of our current Designers) have all been busy creating Parade Floats to represent our Alumni & Current TDC Designers.

Each parade float was created using only that Designer's designs and items from the Hybrid category here at The Digichick Shop. We challenged the team to get out those rubber stamps, inks, dies, Silhouette machines, punches, impression plates, copics, cardstock, buttons, ribbon, tinsel, shiny stuff, etc. to create their parade float. The sky was the limit!

We will be tossing candy (AKA Coupons) from these parade floats. There is also a "Where are they now?" feature.

Let the Parade begin!

Current TDC Designer Sherwood Studio (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Sherwood-Studio/)

Bio:


What is your design name? Sherwood Studio
How long have you been at TDC? Since October, 2010.
Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. Sitting in the virtual corner with my digi-friends drinking virtual mimosas and cracking real jokes :) :waving at the corner club:
What is your favorite kit that you have in the shop right now? Link us up! You do realize that picking out a "favorite" kit is going to make all of the other kits jealous, right? They are all my favorites. Each one has been inspired by a memory or event that is significant to me. So I will just pick one out of my virtual hat - and the winner is :drumroll: In His Garage (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/In-His-Garage.html) (my husband spends a lot of time in his garage, and very nice things come out of there to make my life better!)

Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. It may not seem happy, but to me it was. When I had surgery this year, I was in so much pain and wanted to vent somewhere in private and didn't know who to turn to. The wonderful staff at TDC listened and supported me through it all. I didn't expect to make such amazing friends at TDC, but I did. The CT, admin and designers are a group of women who have a lot of love to offer.

What is your design name? Sugarplum Paperie
When were you at TDC? From August of 2008 until February of 2012
Share a happy memory that you have of your time at TDC. Golly. I have too many to share just one... but my favorite memory was probably the year that we closed down the site to upgrade the shop and hosted a day long chat for everyone who was sooooo bored without their favorite forum. We made videos to entertain one another and had lots of laughs. It's always a good time when you hang out with the chicks!
Where are you selling now? (Or, if you aren't selling now, have you moved on to other passions?) I am currently selling at the Sweet Shoppe. I wish I had more time for knitting though... still not able to squeeze that in. But I am designing like mad again!

Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. Almost any day in the forum with these ladies around here. They make me smile so much, that LOL takes on a real life form just sharing snippets of our day together. I also love me a little virtual corner "time-out" with the gang drinking virtual mimosas while cracking real jokes :waving at the other ladies in the corner club:
What is your favorite kit that you have in the shop right now? Link us up! Oh goodness, this one always makes me freeze! I will admit that all of my "Sugar Sands Beach" (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Sugar-Sands-Christmas-Beach-Bundle.html) kits still hold a special place in my heart. This collection share pieces of my life here along the coast, so what its there not to love about them!

Current TDC Designer Wishing Well Creations (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Wishing-Well-Creations/)

Bio:


What is your design name? Wishing Well Creations (and my name is Laura)
How long have you been at TDC? About a year and a half -- I arrived here in the nest in March 2011.
Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. Until I arrived at TDC, I hadn't scrapped in forever. My mojo was blocked or something. This place is just boiling over in creativity and inspiration, though, and shortly after I got here I started scrapping again all the time and filling my gallery up once again. I just love the community here, and being here just makes me happy, and the whole package just makes me :grin: and feel creative and want to scrap all the time.
What is your favorite kit that you have in the shop right now? Link us up! Wow, that's tough. I always tend to love whatever I am working on right now the best! But there is a special place in my heart for both Owen's Room (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Owens-Room-Kit.html) and Brady's Room (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Bradys-Room-Kit.html), because they're based on my kids' bedrooms -- and especially since our family is moving across country right now and leaving the house/rooms that inspired those kits, I am feeling especially nostalgic about them at the moment!

(http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Guest-Lifescapes-Templates/)Bio:


What is your design name? Lifescapes
How long have you been at TDC? as a designer, only since July of this year. July is also the anniversary of my CT gig here. So I was CT for exactly one year before being taken on as a guest designer.
Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. I stepped down briefly when my husband was deployed, but never really left. For a couple of months, I was just a hanger-on. Then my husband unexpectedly came back, and I was asked to come back on as a CT member. Just, the level of love and support I've had here is something I've never experienced before.
What is your favorite kit that you have in the shop right now? Link us up! The http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Wor...he-Bundle.html (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Work-it-on-out-the-Bundle.html)Work it on Out bundle is my favorite, because it was so much fun to make. And also because it started out as templates, and then went down its own road.

How long have you been at TDC? I came to TDC originally in April 2009! Wow, that's a long time! ;)
Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. Every time I see one of our team collabs all together on the preview, I get a little teary. No, really, I do. I just love how all of our different styles mesh so well, and that everyone seems to really pull out the stops with their contributions. Seriously amazing. And I love being a little part of that.

What is your design name? ViVa Artistry
When were you at TDC? from 2009 to 2012
Share a happy memory that you have of your time at TDC. Vanessa: Oh man, there are so many happy memories of this place. I have to say the happiest was getting an email from Nicole saying that she would take us in when we completely cold called her for a spot. I was so happy she took a chance with us. I also have to say that although every single person I've met at TDC has been wonderful, getting to meet Danyale (Etc. by Danyale) and Laura (Wishing Well Creations) have been somewhat of a highlight for me. Those two have an amazing mind and sense of humor. I have literally spit coffee out of my nose reading some of their comments on different threads and I'm always in awe of how savvy and creative they can be. Vivienne: Agree, the email from Nicole was a very very good email!
Where are you selling now? (Or, if you aren't selling now, have you moved on to other passions?) We are now selling at Scrapbookgraphics.

Bio:


What is your design name? I went with something super unique: Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs
How long have you been at TDC? Since October 2008, so almost 4 years!!
Share a happy memory that you have had here at TDC. It was probably May 2009. That was my first National Scrapbooking Day weekend, and thanks to new releases, a grab bag, the brand new Hybrid Chick blog, a template giveaway I participated in for a fundraiser, and a whole lot more exposure via advertising and blog love, my sales were more than decent. For the first time, I felt like I could actually make a little money in this crazy fun industry by doing something that I loved! It was a welcome rush of happy feelings for this stay-at-home mom hoping to help out financially at home!
What is your favorite kit that you have in the shop right now? How can I choose just one? I love my Cupcake Shaped Box (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Cupcake-Box-Template-Set.html) (since it's the box that put me on the map), however the one I use most often for personal gifts is probably the Standing Pillow Box (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Standing-Pillow-Box-Template-Set-and-Cutting-Files.html).

I have to say, I am so impressed that you're featuring past designers as "alumni" - in some stores/forums it seems like even mentioning a different store is taboo!!

Thanks! That was an important part of this event for us. We have loved the people who have been here, and even though they are no longer here, we still love them and are thrilled to have them back here with us this weekend. :) (Oh, and if you haven't seen it yet, you should check out the collab that they did for us to coordinate with the TDC designers' August Collab: Yearbook, Alumni Class (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Yearbook-Alumni-Class.html).

I... am almost speechless and on the verge of tears. Let me try to take a minute to express all the joy that is in my heart right now... :heart:

First of all--this event that you all put together is simply AMAZING. You Hybrid Chicks... :thud: Seriously, you guys, there is no better team in the entire digiworld. Your work here was outstanding. WOW! THC has to be the one thing that I've always been the most proud of--the one thing I added to TDC that was a huge success. You all brought me so much joy today, looking at all your creations. YOU GUYS ROCK! :clap:

Second, to everyone who talked about the sense of community and family here at TDC, the encouragement you received, the lack of drama... those things are so true and it's so real here at TDC. And YOU all made this place that way. When Kim left the store in my hands and told everyone to keep the family spirit here, I was thinking to myself "Ut-oh. I have my work cut out for me!" But I never did. The spirit of family is just a blessing that resides here at TDC. It's in the water. It's so wonderful--just thinking about it is going to make me cry now... so I'll move on to #3. :grin:

Third, thank you to everyone who said nice things about me personally. It was my pleasure to bring you into the fold. That was always the best part of my job--taking on new designers! I was about as giddy as you all were.

And finally... I love you guys so much. I'm out of words and all I have left to say is :loveshower:

I wish each float had a thread of it's own so I could point out my fave parts of each one...I think the one that jumped off the parade route at me was the float for Kelleigh Ratzlaff by Sinead...OMG all those tee-nine-sey hybrid projects!!!

EVERY float has seriously amazed me - they are ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! I wish each float had a thread of it's own so I could point out my fave parts of each one...I think the one that jumped off the parade route at me was the float for Kelleigh Ratzlaff by Sinead...OMG all those tee-nine-sey hybrid projects!!!

And don't worry, Chickies! These projects will be loaded into the TDC in Action gallery this week so that you can comment to your heart's content. :) Many of those made by the THC team will have individual posts on THC about the making of their floats. It's the Project that keeps on giving! :D

You did a great job of getting us started, Roelien!

For those of you who don't know, Roelien created the very first float (the one for Megan Turnidge) and set the bar high for everyone. You did an amazing job, Roelien, and we were thrilled to rise to the challenge! :heart:

It was my pleasure and I was so honored to be asked to be part of this project! :blowkiss:

LuAnn and Sinead worked their tooshies off on this parade, so major kudos to them. And more major kudos to the hybrid artists. I'm just floored.

:agree:


Such amazing, gorgeous work! I'm still stunned by the talent around here. Wonderful job!

:geekwub:

me too, me too. I was thinking how difficult it must have been to fold all of those tiny bags so perfectly!

Wonderful, amazing parade all around. Each float is a masterpiece!

I have been a follower of TDC since October of 2005 and I am by personality mostly a lurker, but I have to step from the shadows here ladies. I am totally amazed and awestruck at this parade! I have been a traditional scrapper and digi scrapper both for a long time and from both sides of that I have been looking at these for hours this evening. The time and effort let alone the special care that went into each of these floats is truly inspiring. Thank you each and every one of you from the organizers to the designers and creators.

Thanks, Suzanne, and thanks everyone who has posted. It was so much fun to put this together, and I'm so proud to see the talent on our team. :)

I'd love to see even more people try out hybrid and see how much fun it can be. :). (And, here's a teaser, but we are working on something to help with that in the coming months, so stay tuned. :D )

Well I missed the parade while it was live with all the music, but I just saw the replay and Wow, Wow, WOW!!!! I cannot tell you gals how impressed I am. I have never done any hybrid anything. It looks really intriguing. Mind you I don't even own a colour scanner, lol. The floats are magnificent. The details are sooooooo amazing. Thank you everyone for sharing your creativity. Bravo!!!!

:clap:

Arlene, there are a few of us in the parade who have never done anything hybrid either. So, what I am trying to say is, it is well worth a try! And if you check out our THC, you will find not only inspiration, but a lot of tips, tricks and tutorials. Give it a go, I can tell you I had heaps of fun!

sinead
08-19-2012, 01:49 AM
Arlene, you should totally give it a try! It's awesome! Nathalie is right; there are some great projects and ideas on The Hybrid Chick. :)

chloe
08-19-2012, 02:05 AM
Yep, :agree: too, Arlene. I'm not an hybrid chick, like AT ALL, but it was fun to try. I wouldn't do it every day, 'cause it took me forever since I'm not hybrid-trained, but it was fun and I loved having an immediate physical result of my work. Oh, and if you don't own a color printer you can get it done in a printing shop, so even THAT is not mandatory. The basic tools are something to cut (cissors, exacto knife) and something to glue... and that's it. You can always elaborate after!

dillydoodles
08-19-2012, 02:25 AM
Thanks gals. I do have all the tools and cutting boards and knives and scissors and glue and stuff. Lord knows what I used to do with it all, but it must have been from one hobby or another, haha. I will certainly check out that area of the forum. I feel like I just can't keep up lately.... so much to do, so little time (yada yada, same ol', same ol'). Maybe I could start with something simple, like a birthday card, or a paper airplane, lol.

:blink:

LOL Arlene. THC is definitely very inspiring and they offer all kind of projects, from very simple ones that even I think I could do to totally impressive and professional level ones! And the best thing is that they make them ALL look doable. I don't know how they do this magic!! LOL

You are welcome Jenn! I really enjoyed making it and it really came together easily. Once I saw your Rebel kit, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. All of your stuff just screams I'M A ROCK STAR, so it was a natural choice! I'm glad you liked it.

To all of you ladies who are unsure if you can do it - just start with baby steps. All of Kelleigh's templates are so simple to use and you don't have to a cutting machine. I just an exacto knife and do it the old fashioned way. Try it!!

Cards are a perfect way to break into hybrid!! I am not really a hybrid girl but I do love to do a project here and there. I have made many cards- just don't ever post them. :giggle:

We do a very loose card/project challenge on the Hybrid Chick every other Sunday. It's challenges like "use pink" or "create a birthday card". Come join us!

These floats are so amazing! We were given a sneaky-peeky on Friday, and I must confess I was in SHOCK! I was speechless and brought to tears!! Totally in awe of the amazing Hybrid Chicks and the gorgeous projects they were able to create using my templates!!! It's humbling, that's for sure!!

Thank you ALL! I'm still amazed and can't wait to comment on each of them in the gallery!

I'm finally home and able to view the parade. I've been so anxious to see all the other floats. I had a great time making one for the parade. I am in awe at the beauty of this parade, all of the floats are super amazing. Each of you ladies that put your hands, tools and glue to work, really brought on the creativity!

Super big kudos to LuAnn and Sinead for all the behind-the-scenes work!!
