How about a challenge over at Scrapbook Circle? Challenge #25 is all about POCKETS. Incorporate a pocket or pockets into a layout, load it up to the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page by 9:00pm PST on February 15th and you are in the running for a $15 Scrapbook Circle gift certificate! Here is the layout I made for the challenge:
I used 2 Chevron Pockets from Whisker Graphics that were included in the main kit Remember This and one pocket that was included in the Add On. Both the Add On and the Main Kit sold out this month--I told you they would! This layout included 3 pieces of advice to my monkeys. I simply hand-wrote each piece of advice on an Elle's Studio tag included in the kit and tucked them into the pockets. Here is the last piece:
All the details of the challenge are HERE.
And over at Imaginisce, this week was LOVE week. My LOVE Mini Album is HERE. I used the Sole Sisters line to cover the pages of my Maya Road album:
Looks like the LOVE week giveaway has already been drawn, but never fear, Imaginisce loves doing giveaways and we have a blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives starting tomorrow. Comment each day for your chance to win!
And how about a little tip? I posted on the Therm O Web Blog my favorite way to attach epoxy brads. I cut the wings off (or sometimes just bend them back and forth until they fall off!) and then adhere them with Therm O Web Zots. This way you don't have to worry about poking through your paper, having them end up misaligned or having the backs catch on another layout in your album. I used that little tip here on another Scrapbook Circle Remember This layout:
Good luck with the challenge and giveaway! Hope you had a wonderful and happy weekend.
