CK & Me: August 2011

Let’s talk end-0f-summer scraplifting! In this time of transition, when we’re getting ready for back-to-school while also trying to enjoy these final weeks of summer, our days tend to get busier. Sounds like a perfect time to save a little time and scraplift your next layout. This will give you a jumping off point to your next project, while still offering you the creative freedom you know and love. Scraplifting is what this group of talented ladies did in this month’s installment of CK & Me. Let’s take a look!

Today’s first example is an excellent illustration of how one scrapbook page theme can easily work for a story of a different them. Start with a look at what talented Roree Rumph did with this layout, which was featured in our Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Summer Fun & Travel special issue.

Kat Poole took the same eye-catching design and swapped out the product to create a colorful friends page. She even mixed up the stitching technique and used baker’s twine as her floss. Very cool, Kat! Thanks for sharing your work.

With summer coming to an end, I think we all need to spend at least one more day out in the sunshine doing something fun. How about a day at the pier? If you can’t break away today, spend some time finding sunny scrapliftable joy in this layout by Stacy Cohen, which is also in our Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Summer Fun & Travel special issue.

An afternoon at the pier is just what Stephanie DiSabato enjoyed, so it makes sense that she was instantly drawn to Stacey’s page. We love the way she’s changed up the colors and photo sizes while still keeping the overall design in tact. Way to step right up, Stephanie!

Here’s a first for us. This cute CK inspiration page actually comes from Club CK. It was created by user Calebsmommy.

Karen, a new Club CK member, finds lots of inspiration in the Club galleries. Including the aforementioned page. It’s so fun to see how she’s completely changed the look with her supplies, while still keeping the sketch foundation the same. Thanks for being creative with your CK & Me submission, Karen. And welcome to our club!

Yes, you could be our next CK & Me featured scrapbooker, whether we put your amazing page here, on our blog, or in an upcoming issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. Interested? Oh, and all blog-featured scrapbookers receive a FREE special issue, which is an added bonus! If you think you’re the next “me” we’re looking for, simply e-mail us at with “CK & Me” in your subject line. Attach a picture of your scrapbook page, and list the layout that inspired it. Please include the issue and page number where the issue can be found, along with a note about what it was about that layout that drew you in. Thanks!

We can’t wait to see your work. Until then, please join us in congratulating this month’s talented trio. They did a smashing job. Top notch!
