WINNER Time! And Where Did the Weekend (and January!!) Go?

Really wishing it was not the end of the weekend already! Where did the last two days go? I actually got lots of scrapbooking done, but then the housecleaning suffers. Oh well. Cant have it all! Anyway, it was time to pick a winner of my BIG box giveaway.

like the horizontal pics and the linear l/o of this page. we follow you with feedly :)

I emailed you Tammy! Congrats and look for more fun giveaways. I am looking around and realizing I definitely need to make more room if I want new goodies lol!

In any case, I know it is almost the end of the month, but I wanted to share my Scrapbook.com Kit Club layouts from January.
 I adore the Heidi Swapp acrylic pieces!
Those Prima zipper flowers are fun too! I am so glad Prima makes beauties like that because I for one do NOT have the patience!

 And LOVE LOVE LOVE those Pink Paislee stamps! I used Hero Arts Navy ink from my stash and the combination of that and the Heidi Swapp Navy Color Shine mist makes me HAPPY.

I think the January kit may be sold out, but you can SIGN UP HERE for notification of when the next kit goes live AND to get a coupon code. By signing up you are not obligated to buy so you might as well sign up and not miss out!

Catching Up and BIG Giveaway!!!

What a whirlwind! This year has started off crazy busy! I was in CHA for 5 days. It was a blast. There was so much new fun stuff to see. I am going to try and do a Flipogram in my instagram feed with  lots of my favorites.

Thinking about lots of fun new things that may have to make their way into my studio means I need to clear some room! Which means a giveaway! This is what I have right now, but I have more cleaning up to do so I will continue to stuff whatever I can in a priority box.
Some stuff is partly used and some is full unopened packages! Did you see the Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists? Full unopened bottles! (I just happened to have doubles!) If you want to win this big goodies bag follow my blog and leave a comment telling me you did or already do. I will leave this open until Friday January 24. Good luck!

I also wanted to share my Scrapbook Circle layout for THIS Challenge. The challenge is to make a layout inspired by a love song. Use it in the title or journaling or whatever you want! Here is mine:
I used the One Republic song for my title and journaling. The Studio Calico cards worked in perfectly to the title!
Hope 2014 has been treating you right so far!

Scrapbook Circle and Memory Coasters

I had the chance to play with a set of Memory Coasters and the fabulous Scrapbook Circle Kit This Life and Add On, Love This. These coasters are so cool. They are like little mini shadow box frames that you can decorate and fill with all kinds of goodies.

rk sc memory coasters1I used a large circle punch to cut out my photos.

The 6x6 paper pad from the Add On was perfect for including smaller size patterns.

I simple traced the cardstock that was inside the coaster as a guide and cut out my own inserts.

There is plenty of room inside to add embellishments too. Or you can just keep this side plain to draw attention to your photos.

The other cool thing about the coasters is that they are entirely clear, so you can fill or embellish the back too!

I again worked with the January Kit and Add on, but added some items from my stash too. Like pom poms cut off of trim here. I love those mini cassette's (again from the 6x6 paper pad).

In one coaster I added tulle and then placed one of the flair from the Add on on top. In this one I layered some papers and epoxy dots and added in some confetti from my stash.

I had so much fun creating these! They would be a perfect Valentine's gift to grandparents! Thanks to Memory Coasters for inviting Scrapbook Circle to play!
