Congratulations to the random winner of February’s Blog Challenge: jesse21 with this wonderful Beautiful Summer Flowers layout! Please check your PMs over at The Lilypad for details of how to claim your prize jesse21! And now onto this month’s challenge! Edeena has come up with a super template and a theme suggestion for you this month, I’ll let her tell you all about it:
“Kate’s new releases (We Go Together Like… and We Go Together Too) inspired this month’s challenge. The challenge itself is very simple: show us what two things go together in your life. From your favourite flavours to your favourite people, show us what you love together. They don’t have to be the common go-togethers that people would expect. You may have a flavour sensation that is unusual. Or maybe it’s you and your best friend – maybe the two of you go together like…”
Here’s the template Edeena created for the challenge:
and here’s how the team used it:
This week’s new releases were inspired both by a very sweet Valentine’s card and my love of delicious food! Whilst brainstorming perfect foodie pairings for my to doodle list, I came up with enough ideas for two different packs: We Go Together Like… is an international selection of perfect food combinations, whereas We Go Together Too has a more British flavour to it (fishfingers and custard anyone?!)! Both packs are 20% off all weekend, with stamp and bundle packs also available.
As I put together my schedule for the coming year I thought that it would be fun to ask you about what you would like to see from Kate Hadfield Designs in 2015! I’ve created a quick survey (just five questions!) that I hope you will complete to help me put together the best range of products for you. There’s also the opportunity within the survey to share more detailed suggestions with me, your answers will be kept anonymous (unless you would like to share your contact details with me!).
You can find the survey here, I hope you will take a moment or two to fill it in and help me make new products you’ll really enjoy using. Thank you in advance for your feedback!
I have a couple of new products in the store today! Joodle Strips 7 is the latest addition to my Joodle Strip collection, this time with a lovey-dovey twist and lots of girlie colours! Me & My Marker: Filler Cards is a set of hand drawn filler cards that I created to use in my own pocket album this year, I found myself needing some neutral black and white touches for my pages so I spent some time playing around in my sketchbook and came up with these! Both new packs are part of the February BYOC and are on sale at 20% off all weekend.
Today is my design anniversary: eight years ago today I opened up my shop at The Lilypad! It’s been an amazing ride – my designing has gone from a little spin-off from my digital scrapbooking obsession, to my full-time job and I will be forever grateful to everyone who spent their hard-earned pennies on my doodles! I love being able to draw for a living, being able to connect with my customers and see how they use those drawings in their own memory keeping and crafting projects means the world to me. Thank you to everyone who has supported my little business over the past eight years!
To celebrate my anniversary I’m holding a few contests and giveaways! Here’s a quick run down of what’s going on this month:

This month’s template was inspired by my 8 year design anniversary celebrations, hence the “Pieces of Eight” theme! I thought it would be a fun way of illustrating a list of favourites, or for documenting events where you end up with lots and lots of photos!
Here’s what my team came up with using the challenge template, I love all the different interpretations using the same basic design! Continue reading
