CK Giveaway!

Good Monday Morning! I am back and ready to start my first full week with NO KIDDOS home! We had a great summer but it was definitly time for them to go back to school!

How about we celebrate my quiet house with a giveaway?!?

Creating Keepsakes has a brand new Special Issue out this week - Budget Friendly Scrapbooking. If you are like me, you spend way too much on supplies that don't always get used. This special issue will give you ideas on using up those supplies in new and unique ways.

I have a couple of pages in the book. Here is one that shows how to use sketches to plan your layouts and stretch your supplies. You can see more of the book in a special sneak peek right here!

Want to win your own copy of this Book? Simply leave me a comment below to be entered! I will pick a winner next Tuesday morning September 5th!


a Jillibean Page

This one went up on the Jillibean Blog Thursday. I mixed papers and products from Blossom Soup, Spotted Owl Soup and Watermelon Gazpacho to get that Red, White and Blue color scheme. you would be surprised at how many different color schemes you can achieve by mixing up the collections already in your stash!


Another Two Pager

Posting a second time this week with another two pager that uses only 4x6 photos! My pile of Winter photos is getting smaller and smaller. My two little guys got to go onto a local news program in January ad model for my friend who is a professional face painter. Pretty spooky faces huh!?! I used MME papers on this layout. I am a huge fan of Jenn Alysson who designs for them. I love everything she creates as long as it doesn't have glitter on it. :)


CK Layouts

Wo-hoo. I had a fantastic weekend that included scrapbooking ALL DAY Sunday all by myself. I made a ton of Jillibean pages (soon to be seen) and finished up a bunch of pages hanging around from Wintertime.

I haven't had the chance to scan the new stuff yet - so in the meantime...a couple of double pagers I never posted from CK Tips and Tricks Special Issues.


The Card Kitchen

Have you seen this yet? A new CARD kit club brought to you by Jillibean Soup! Kimber and Jill have been preparing for months for this exciting new venture. Behind the scenes I got to help Kimber with the blog graphics as she set up the blog design and layout. Head on over and see what they are cooking up!


CHA Projects

The month before CHA was pretty crazy for me. I was able to create a few projects for the Jillibean booth at the last minute. One I am not able to share - it got picked up by a magazine at the show! Here are a couple of others...
Button Flower Vases using all four of the new button cards from Jillibean!

Our Holiday Home Mini features pictures of my parent's home at Christmas Time. I used a Maya Road 4x4 Mini and Jillibean Christmas Eve Chowder.

 This horribly photographed (with my phone!) card uses Christmas Eve Chowder too! I love the card, just not the photo.


Another Page to Share

This page was on the Jillibean Blog last week. I used lots of paper from the Watermelon Gazpacho Soup collection and some of the Epiphany Crafts Tools and Epoxy Shapes. The pictures are actually from our Disney Trip from May 2010!

Also - Scrapbook Update had a great post about the Jillibean CHA Booth last week, check it out here!
