New Book and a Giveaway too!



Are you a huge fan of Jennifer McGuire? Me too! I always flag at least one of her techniques and ideas each month in her Tools and Techniques CK article. I have learned so many things from her over the years. When the editors at Creating Keepsakes asked me to contribute two pages to her new book, I was honored beyond belief.

I had the opportunity to receive an advance copy of the book for preview. It is amazing. CK always publishes top notch publications, this one goes above and beyond. The title says 101+ and it delivers. Many of the ideas use products you most likely have on hand. Jennifer sparks your creative process and inspires you to use those products in new and different ways.

Here is a preview of one of my pages in the book:

To see more of the book, visit this preview area as well. Want to get a copy of the book for yourself? You can purchase the new issue right here. I even have a coupon for you to save a little money! Use coupon code FS101B for free shipping on orders $25 or more and expires 12/31/10.

Want to win your very own copy of the book? One lucky blog winner will win a copy from me! Simply leave me a comment below and I will pick a random winner. You have until midnight Sunday Oct. 10 to enter. I will post the winner here on Monday morning.

PS - Told you I was a fan...here I am getting my photo taken with Jennifer at CHA Summer 2010. I did refrain from asking her for her autograph. :)

I thumbed through this book today at the store but didn't buy it. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to win it! It looks like a very useful book with lots of great ideas - which is exactly why I expect of Jennifer McGuire!

Rockin Robin Caldwell said...

OK...I'll bite!! Love your SVG's and need to start using them in layouts. But, I must admit that I am a scrapbooking virgin. I need to learn how to do this. I have been a rubber stamper for years, but have never done scrapbooking..I need to. My shoeboxes full of pics demand that I do so. This seems to be a good place to start. Wish me luck on winning this book!! Hugs, Rockin Robin C
