Customer loyalty and lots more!

******************Customer Loyalty Program******************

While I was planning for the sale last weekend, I came across a feature on the store backend that allows me to FINALLY automate the Customer Loyalty Program.

After every 5 orders, you get $5 off your 6th order!  This will automatically occur and will say "Discount" on your invoice.  It was also retroactive, so if you had already placed orders, it took off the discount during the sale this past weekend!  Some of you had more than 11 orders, so you got $10 off!  :)

*******************June Winning Ticket********************

For every $10 your spend in the store, you get a raffle ticket with your order.  Each month, I draw one winning ticket to receive a $10 store credit!  Here is the winning ticket from June!

blue ticket 108383

If you have the winning ticket, please email me at to claim your prize!

***************Flickr Gallery Tutorial****************

We are experimenting with a new gallery for the store and forum.  If you haven't been to the Flickr Gallery yet, you MUST check it out!  Already a ton of members and over 100 layouts!  And the pages are incredible!

If you want to learn how to sign up, go to THIS POST.

To learn how to upload your photos to the My Scraps & More group, check out THIS POST.

Today I am going to show you how to add an image to a thread in the forum.

1. Click on the photo you wish to add to the thread.  On the bottom right corner, you will see a little arrow.  Click on this arrow and this is what you will see:

*Notice that you can also share this to so many other places!  Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and more!

2. In the box, click on BBCode, and then select a size (I use the medium size).  Copy the entire code that comes up in the box (highlighted in blue below).

3.  Now go to the thread where you want to add your image.  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PASTE THE CODE RIGHT INTO THE THREAD.  You do NOT have to click the "image" box and copy and paste the code into it.

4.  And voila!  Your image should appear in the thread!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

****************Sharing a layout****************

I thought I would share the layout above with you!  I created this page using Echo Park Capture Life and some Good Day Sunshine by Simple Stories! (Click links to see this lines in the store!)

The pink, yellows, and blues from the Echo park Capture Life collection also went well with my photos, so I stuck to that color combo (one of my favorites for summer!).  And the “Capture Life” sticker has dual meaning for this page!   Because of this circle sticker, I decided to continue adding a few smaller punched circles on the page to help it flow.

The word “fun” was printed on the Simple Stories Insta Square and I punched it out with a circle punch.  I tried to mimic the writing with the word “girl” with a white pen on a blue circle.

***************Weekly Giveaway***************
