We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper Giveaway!

Never again have a plain old corner with the Corner Chomper from We R Memory Keepers! Just like its sister tools, the Crop-A-Dile and the Big Bite, the Corner Chomper offers strength and durability. They’ll cut right through paper, cardstock, chipboard, and other craft materials with ease! Plus each one has two cut styles in one tool for double the corner designs! All that and a handy waste bin to catch the paper trimmings, and you will be chomping at the bit to get one of these babies.

Lucky for you, we are giving away two Corner Chompers to one lucky winner (in the style of her choice)! Be sure to head on over to the We R Memory Keepers Facebook page to say hi and tell them we sent you.

Welcome Guest Sketcher Brittany Perry! (Mid Week Mojo #32)

Welcome Guest Sketcher Brittany Perry! (Mid Week Mojo #32)

It’s already the first Wednesday in March, which means it’s guest sketcher time again!  I positively love guest sketch weeks as it’s so much fun to see different amazing scrap talents enrich our blog.  I’m so excited to be able to present to you one of our local friends, Brittany Perry.

—————————————

I was so, so, so excited when I got Kristy’s e-mail asking if I would like to be a guest sketcher! Me? Really? At the same time, I felt a little nervous, considering all of the awesome guest sketchers who preceded me, not to mention Kristy’s amazing sketches. Of course I wanted to do it, I just hoped I could come up with something that people would enjoy recreating!

Initially, I was going to work with Piggy Tales’ Twinkle Twinkle collection, but then Kristy suggested that I might like to work with the Imaginisce Enchanted collection.  Apparently, she knows my scraping preferences well since it is right up my alley!  I love to scrap pictures of my kids and it seems like most often it ends up being my two-year-old daughter!  And with a little girl who loves to dress up like a princess (and I mean daily), these papers were absolutely perfect for so many of my pictures.

After finishing my sketch and initial layout, I wondered if I could use this kit for boys as well.  As I thumbed through my pictures, I came upon some Easter pictures and thought they’d go great with some of the more neutral papers.  They have great springy, pastel colors!  I used the same layout, but made it a one-pager, and I think it worked great with my boys’ pictures as well!

I did a third layout, somewhat related to my sketch, because again, they were perfect for my pictures!

I also love that this kit comes with a matching 6×6 pad!  Those are my favorite for creating cards!  My niece just had a birthday, and I couldn’t resist making her a card with some of the 6×6 papers and the cute stamps that are included (I also got to use my American Crafts stamp markers for the first time on this card).

I hope everyone likes the sketch, and I can’t wait to see all of the layouts!
Thank you, Melodee & Kristy, for inviting me to guest sketch, and for such a fun kit to work with!  The whole experience really was Enchanting!

Welcome Guest Sketch Designer, Jessica Fancher! (Mid Week Mojo #16!)

Welcome Guest Sketch Designer, Jessica Fancher!  (Mid Week Mojo #16!)

Wow.  Can you belive that we are already on Mid Week Mojo #16?  Just a few short weeks and we will be celebrating our Emerald Club with another fantastic blog giveaway!

However, what we get to celebrate today is Christmas with our fantastic Facebook Fan, friend and guest designer, Jessica Fancher!

Several weeks ago I approached Jessica with asking her to be one of our guest designers for Mid Week Mojo.  When I asked her what she’d like to work with as far as product goes, she suggested something Christmas-y.  Luckily for her Melodee had the perfect steal already in the works, the Doodlebug Christmas Kit.

I asked Jessica to share a little bit about herself with us.  She writes:

First off I have to thank Kristy for asking me to be the Guest Sketcher this month.  I was very nervous because I am always the one doing the copying…..never the one being copied.  And thanks to Melodee for sending me the coolest kit ever!  It was so much fun to work with.

A little about me:  I have only been scrapbooking for a few years.  Before I started doing this, I never ever did anything like it.  My mom was always the crafty one, making my homecoming mums, school posters and etc.  Well, she asked me to go to a once a month scrapbooking get together at our church.  I had nothing and I just watched the first night.  Well, the next month I went again this time with a pre-made book, and I just added in my pictures.  Then I started acquiring more stuff, and started copying Lay-Outs, and eventually ended up here on my own doing them.  It was progression to say the least.

A little about my lay-out…..We always have Christmas with my Nana on Christmas Eve, and let me just tell you she goes all out on gifts, and gets the best of the best for EVERYONE!  I mean her Christmas tree looks like it threw up Christmas presents – literally!  We have always referred to her a “Nana-Claus” hence the title of my page.  It’s always as a great memory we will never forget!

Now about this amazing kit….The colors were simply brilliant and the embellishments were heavenly!  I loved the ribbon and the big buttons.  My circle embellishment with the jewel, I cut from one of the pages and used a puffy sticker to give it dimension.  I had a blast doing this layout and have actually done a couple more already with this paper.  I hope you like it and I can not see what y’all come with.

I love how Jessica used multiple, smaller photos for her layout.  I rarely scrapbook pages using standard sized photos, so this sketch design totally speaks to me!


I love how the tall rectangle photo could also be used for a perfect journaling spot.  I truly hope that I can find the time to get a layout done myself!

I just wanted to say thank you again to Jessica for taking on the challenge of being our guest sketcher for Mid Week Mojo this week.  I truly can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Remember to post your layouts to our Faceobok Fan Page or personal blog and leave a comment with a link to your page here on this blog post, by next Monday night at Midnight to be eligible for our weekly random drawing.

Also be sure to check back tomorrow night for a sneak peek of what we have coming up on Friday.  Something we are truly excited to bring to you!

As always….happy scrapping!
