[font=Verdana]Brand New Year = Brand New Look[/font]
[font=Verdana]You may have noticed a few changes around Scrapjazz.com. We’ve spent the past several months brainstorming, researching and planning ways to make Scrapjazz better for our visitors. To facilitate all of our ideas, we’ve created a new design that we’re thrilled to begin unveiling. [/font]
[font=Verdana]Over the next few weeks, we’ll be converting all of the sections of the site over to our new format. Right now you’ll see the new look in several areas. As you begin using them, you’ll notice some great new features and the simplified usability we’ve added to those sections.[/font]
[font=Verdana]New Design – http://www.scrapjazz.com [/font][font=Verdana]
We’ve moved to the left—of your screen that is. Our new side-bar navigation and “colorblocked” site design will help keep all of the site toolbars in one place, making it easy to jump from section to section of the site.[/font] [font=Verdana]
Topics – http://www.scrapjazz.com/topics [/font]
[font=Verdana]We’ve always strived to bring great articles and information to you about scrapbooking. Now you’ll be able to FIND them. Our articles section has been completely re-vamped and now is divided into categories that will help you quickly find the information you’re looking for. [/font]
[font=Verdana]Related links with each article will direct you to even more information.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Quickly search all of the articles to find the information you need.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Now you can leave comments and share your thoughts about each article.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Gallery – http://www.scrapjazz.com/gallery [/font]
[font=Verdana]Our new gallery makes the old version pale in comparison. The new design features each layout as a work of art and highlights the artist who created it. It also offers huge improvements in usability: [/font]
[font=Verdana]Save favorite artists as well as favorite layouts to your “Favorites” page.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Now you can view all of the new layouts since your last visit to the site.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Adding and reading layout comments is easier than ever. [/font]
[font=Verdana]An improved uploading form makes uploading layouts quick and simple.[/font]
[font=Verdana]Searches are accurate and easy to do from any page.[/font]
[font=Verdana]and much more![/font]
[font=Verdana]Shopping – http://www.scrapjazz.com/shopping [/font]
[font=Verdana]We know you like to shop for scrapbooking supplies, and we want to help you find what you’re looking for. [/font]
[font=Verdana]If you see a layout you love and need to buy the products to make it, you’re in luck. With every layout supply list in the gallery, you’ll find a link to purchase products from the Scrapbook.com online store.
[font=Verdana]Looking for a great deal on scrapbook supplies? Now you can come to one place to find out about sales, discounts, and great deals from various online stores in our Coupon Corner (coming soon!). [/font]
[font=Verdana]Contests – http://www.scrapjazz.com/contests [/font]
[font=Verdana]If you haven’t entered our layout contests in the past, you’ll definitely want to start entering them now! Our prizes are bigger and better than ever before. [/font]
[font=Verdana]Winners of all four of our monthly Product Spotlight contests will receive a prize package including products from all of that month’s Product Spotlight companies, plus additional products donated by other product vendors. These prize packages are valued at about $50 each.
[font=Verdana]Our Theme and Technique contest winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ScrapLovers.com online store.
[font=Verdana]Each week, our team will pick a Featured Artist whose gallery will be featured on the main Gallery page of the site for a full week. Every Featured Artist will receive a $20 gift certificate to the LifetimeMoments.com online store.[/font]
[font=Verdana]And this is just the first stage of the unveiling! [/font]
[font=Verdana]We hope you’ll love our new look and new features as much as we do. Take a look around, try out some of the new features and get yourself oriented with the new-and-improved Scrapjazz.com. In just a couple of weeks you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them! [/font]
[font=Verdana]Please bear with us as we “remodel” over the next few weeks. We expect to run into quirks as we go along, but will be working hard to fix them as quickly as possible. Please post any questions or problems you encounter related to our transition and new design in the “Ask Us” message board forum. We will answer questions and address any problems as we are able.
[font=Verdana]Thanks for your patience and for joining us at Scrapjazz.com.
Andrea and Ben Steed
