Creating Keepsakes Special Issue and a Giveaway!

Creating Keepsakes has a great new special issue out, Scrapbooking with Fabric & Notions, and it's starting to hit stores this week!

Discover how to enhance your scrapbook layouts using buttons, fabric, thread, and other materials from the sewing world. From using quick, pre-made accent options to creating beautifully sewn backgrounds, we'll help you learn the ins and outs of adding homespun textures to your layouts with patterns, step-by-step instructions, and more. You won't want to miss this "sew" special issue from Creating Keepsakes.

Here's a sneak peak of a layout I created for this special issue:

My layout focuses on cross-stitching with ribbon, yarn and embroidery thread.  I'll share more details in the coming weeks.  

As usual, the generous folks at Creating Keepsakes are allowing me to give away a copy of this special issue to one lucky blog winner.  For a chance to win, simply leave a comment here before the end of the day on Sunday.  I'll announce the winner next week, at which time I might just have another special issue to share and giveaway!

LoriLou said...

I saw this issue on the newstand, it is really packed with beautiful and creative ideas. I really appreciate the opportunity to win this issue. I didn't buy it, because I've always felt soooooo very intimidated by sewing and fabric, but I'd love to give the ideas a try on some of my own layouts. Thanks for all the inspiration you continue to provide.
