CK & Me: September

My, my, how time does fly. Can you believe it’s already time for another CK & Me installment? Hooray. This month offers an assortment of beautiful layouts created by three very talented Creating Keepsakes magazine readers. As with every CK & Me, this post shows how these ladies have taken a layout from a past issue of the magazine and used it to inspire their own stunning designs.

Our first savvy scrapper found her inspiration in this happy page Cindy Tobey, created for our May/June 2010 issue of the magazine.

Christi Rogala loved Cindy’s idea for creating flowers from cupcake liners and grew her own garden of them on this bright and beautiful layout. Great work, Christi!

When it comes to ideas that rule, Stacy Cohen is at the head of the class with this scrapbook page, featured in our September 2010 issue.

Angela Parsons was attracted to the cool torn edge in the corner, and she liked Stacy’s use of school products. But, rather than create a page about being a classroom, she took the school theme in another direction. Very clever, Angela!

This beauty by Laura Vegas, featured in our September 2010 issue, motivated our next CK & Me spotlight.

Becky Cutshaw was impressed by Laura’s color blocking and her use of a single photo. Becky generally creates multi-photo layouts, but this layout got her to try something a little different with her designing. Way to go, Becky!

Do you have a CK & Me layout idea you want to share for possible inclusion on our blog or in our magazine? If so, please e-mail us at with an image of your page, the layout that inspired it (including the issue and page number it came from), and a few words on what you found particularly inspiring. Yours may be among our next batch of beauties.

Thanks to this month’s incredible scrapbookers. For being featured, they will each receive a free Creating Keepsakes special issue. Now, in true CK blog-reader fashion, please join me in congratulating them on their featured work by leaving them a comment here.
