Creating Keepsake March/April + Giveaway!! - Closed

If you're here for the American Crafts & Scor-Pal Blog Hop  -->head on over HERE


----------------------------------------------------
I've got another fun giveaway for you guys today that you don't want to miss!  It's for this awesome Creating Keepsakes March/April 2012 Issue; with the gorgeous cover layout by Maggie Holmes.

The magazine is packed with tons of amazing layouts and ideas and am sure that you'll find inspirations at every corner.  And sharing one of my layouts that is published in this issue - and yes, that's me when I was super duper small with my parents at our old seaside house.  Can't say that I remember those days, but am constantly reminded that I'm one naughty (but I think cute) baby.  **wink**

And here's a close up of some of the details on the layout...  using the gorgeous vintage Generations collection from Simple Stories with pops of yellow pattern paper from American Crafts, along with the super cute fabric brad from Amy Tangerine for American Crafts, crystal pearls from Prima and buttons from Fancy Pants.

  52. So nostalgic... I love the drama of the layout...

  53. I used to love reading Ali's column. She gets to the nitty gritty in her journaling. There's no fluff; it's about her love or her pain or something personal. It inspired me to be more real and dig deeper.

    I do agree with a previous poster that the journaling is sooo important and it's frustrating to not be able to read a featured layout's journaling in the magazine.

    I also love sketches because they're a great jumping off point and breaks a layout down to it's key components.

  54. One of my favorite things in CK is seeing people's craft rooms! I'm addicted to looking at craft spaces and gaining inspiration and ideas on organization! Of course, the gorgeous layouts are a fav too! Thanks so much for the chance!
