SURPRISE GIVEAWAY: How Fast They Grow ($150 Gift Certificate)

Hostess with the Mostess for How Fast They Grow

WINNER Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered and checked out How Fast They Grow! The random winner was chosen, and I love it when stuff like this happens because it proves that the results really are RANDOM. The # drawn was “1“! So Mirielle – our very first entrant in the giveaway – is also the lucky winner. Congrats, Mirielle! To everyone else… more giveaways coming up soon!


This week’s Surprise Giveaway is especially near & dear to me… because it comes from How Fast They Grow – an innovative, digital scrapbooking company that includes a Hostess with the Mostess™ collection in their series of available templates!

I had so much fun designing these page templates last year (81 designs total), but it’s been even more exciting to see the pages come to life with the favorite photos & memories of real people!

If you’re not yet familiar with How Fast They Grow, their technology enables users to “drag and drop” digital photos into 12×12 page templates and create magazine-quality scrapbook pages in about seven minutes. There is no software to download or purchase, and you can also customize titles, fonts, and journaling on each page!

This week, How Fast They Grow is offering up a $150 Gift Certificate to a lucky HWTM reader! Pages are $5.50 each, so $150 is going to go a long ways in creating memory books for yourself or gift books for loved ones (think Mother’s Day, graduation, milestone birthdays, etc.).

(Details for How to Enter after the jump…)

Traditionally, most people think of memory books as something geared towards baby pictures, but I tried to keep most of the HWTM designs applicable for all ages… and am happy to see some of the pages also being used for things like graduations and football outings! (See more examples of HWTM templates in action.)

I love the “Mostess Days”. The candy and Christmas ones are adorable. I will have to start one of these for my 3 month old.

Jennifer M SAYS:

I love scrapbooking and I have not been too thrilled with the limited selections that I have found for digital scrapbooks at most sites. That being said, I really liked the design options and flexibility of the templates shown from How Fast They Grow. My favorite is the Metro Sorbet because it is so versatile with so many various pages that can be incorporated. Thanks for the great giveaway

I have to vote for Metro Sorbet beause I have a baby girl and it is more feminine! But I love all teh designs, they are adorable!

Lisa Moore SAYS:

This is exciting! :) I have never heard of this way to scrapbook before and I am very intrigued. I like the color combinations of HWTM-B-6, and I like the layouts of HWTM-B-23 and HWTM-G-7. It is hard to choose because all the layouts are fun. My vote goes to Mod Squad for the best category!

I absolutely love Mostess Days 18, 19 & 20. However, seeing as I have a little boy Mod Squad is what I’d actually purchase.
