Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

June 2, 2012

Sponsor Giveaways | Simplify 101, Elle’s Studio, CK Conventions

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a spot in Organize Your Creative Space with creative organizing expert Aby Garvey at simplify 101.

About the workshop:

  • Do you feel like you spend all of your scrapbooking time sifting through creative clutter?
  • Does it feel like as soon as you haul out your supplies, it’s time to put them away again?
  • Are you regularly surprised to find supplies or tools in your scrapbook stash that you forgot you had? Or worse, are you regularly frustrated when you can’t put your hands on things you know you have?
  • Do you feel like your scrapbook space (or the lack of it) zaps your creativity?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, there is a better way. Aby Garvey at simplify 101 has created a brand new workshop with scrapbookers like you in mind. “Organize Your Creative Space” will help you find the perfect balance between creativity and organization. You’ll find out how to put together a functional and inspiring workspace, no matter how much room you have to work with! At the end of this workshop, you will know how to organize and store your tools and supplies so it’s more fun (and easier) to scrapbook.

GIVEAWAY | One person will win the entire Summer Lovin’ line and one person will win a spot in the Summer Lovin’ Mini Album Workshop

Elle’s Studio has just released some beautiful tags for summer and everyday! With this new launch they also released two fun stamps and a Summer Mini Album Workshop! Their tags work great for your layouts, mini albums, cards and even Project Life! Plus, they have some super affordable tags called Lil’ Snippets – most Lil’ Snippet sheets have 3+ tags on them and they only cost 75 cents!

Make sure you check out their Summer Lovin’ Mini Album Workshop, too! Jenni Hufford has put together an amazing workshop that will walk you through putting together a base album that you can add to all summer long! She will also be sending you three updates from her album throughout the summer and it comes with 13 exclusive Elle’s Studio tags that you can print right at home!

There’s lots to see and do at Elle’s Studio – their website has just been fully re-designed and they added a member gallery where you can upload our projects and a message board, too! And, if you are ever looking for inspiration, make sure you stop by their blog and facebook page!


GIVEAWAY | Two people will receive a Shop & Crop package from Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Conventions – both packages include 2 tickets to the vendor faire (shopping area) and 2 tickets to the crop. The first winner will also receive a t-shirt.

Want to enjoy the perfect scrapbooking getaway? Enter to win one of two prizes: a Shop & Crop package for two PLUS two CKC t-shirts or a Shop & Crop package for two. Both prizes are for a 2012 Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention. Each package includes two wrist bands for entrance to the Vendor Faire (shopping area) and two crop tickets. And since there are two wrist bands and crop tickets you can bring a friend to share the joy of one-stop scrapbook shopping and hours of fun cropping.
