Hello, creative friends! I’ve spent the entire morning going through an incredible group of CK & Me submissions. Yes, in this season of thanks, it’s easy to express thanks for a job where I get to spend time being inspired by you. Thanks so much for sending in your layouts. We love seeing what you’ve been up to. Take a look at some of what we’ve received.
It’s so fun to see how two people can take inspiration from the same page and scraplift it in completely different ways. Amy Wheeler took her inspiration from the right side of Kim’s page to create this beauty. Great work, Amy!
Like Amy, Mary Staveness was also inspired by Kim’s design. Take a look at how she took a holiday layout and transformed it into an everyday page simply by changing up the products used. Well played, Mary!
Here’s a fun CK & Me twist. Our next featured scrapbooker was inspired by a past feature opener (the cute lead-in to an article). She loved what Cindy Tobey did to introduce the “Pretty Spooky” article in our October 2010 issue. She created a paper pieced scene, complete with an spook-tacular haunted house.
Since Halloween has come and gone, Natalie Strand used the inspiration to create something a bit more timely–a bunch of paper-pieced gingerbread houses. This is very sweet, Natalie! Great job.
Of course, we hope you’ll take a minute and congratulate these gals on work well done. And we invite you to submit your own CK & Me work. Simply send a picture of your work, along with information on the project that inspired it (designer, issue featured in, page number, and how you were inspired) to firstname.lastname@example.org with “CK & Me” in the subject line. Your work could be featured on our blog or in a future issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.
And we’d love to take a minute and thank you for all you do to continue and inspire us. Seeing your work makes our day, and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to submit. Or, let us know how you’ve been inspired by Creating Keepsakes magazine this year by leaving a comment. Twenty lucky readers will receive a beautiful Christmas Keepsakes Box from Stampin’ Up!
