CK & Me: April

We love a good CK & Me post, and that’s exactly what you’ll find here. The talented gals we’re featuring this month have mastered the art of scraplifting, which is what CK a& Me is all about—taking a design they saw in a recent issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine and making it their own. Scraplifting is a great timesaver, and, as these pages illustrate, it can result in some incredible designs. Take a look!

Our first scrapbooker found inspiration in this beautiful layout by Stacy Cohen, featured in the May/June 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.


How fun to see something with such a feminine color scheme turn into something more primary—a color combo that would work for any number of page themes, including this splish-splashy day! Fabulous job, Paulette!


This pretty pastel page by Sara Winnick, featured in the March/April 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, spoke to our next CK & Me designer.


Sara’s journaling on this page is actually what a struck a chord with Heather Colletti. Heather’s cute twins have very little in common, other than the fact that they melt her heart. Sara’s journaling drew Heather in, and you can see how her design unfolded. She translated a 12″ x 12″ into an 8 ½” x 11″ page, using the same soft colors. Lovely work, Heather!


Our third and final CK & Me designer this month loved this layout by Kim Watson, which was featured in our May/June 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.


Jan, who is traditionally a 12″ x 12″ scrapper, liked the layout and design of Kim’s page so much that she actually stretched herself to try an 8 ½” x 11″ page. Didn’t she do a fantastic job going out of her comfort zone to scraplift? We love this, Jan. Thanks for submitting!


Thanks to all of our gals for submitting. It’s always a pleasure sharing your work with our online friends. To show our appreciation, we’ll be sending you a free Creating Keepsakes special issue. Congrats!

If you’d like your work to be considered as a future CK & Me project, please send an image of your layout, info about the layout that inspired you (the name, issue, page number), a brief note about what inspired you, and your name to with “CK & Me” in your subject line.

Join us in celebrating this month’s CK & Me scrappers by leaving them a little note in the comments section of this post. We know they’ll love hearing from you as much as we always do.
