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 think the Mod Squad templates are fab! My favorite is number 12. I also have to give a shout out to my friends, whose adorable little Ayden is the “cover baby” on the announcement and “Like Your Daddy” page. Precious!
