Ideas For Scrapbookers Anniversary Blog Hop

Happy Anniversary Ideas for Scrapbookers!!!  

We are celebrating the one year anniversary of the Ideas for Scrapbookers blog all this week.   Starting with a blog hop today.  You should have just come from  Heather's blog.  You can always go back to the Ideas for Scrapbookers blog to start form the beginning.

To help celebrate I've got a RAK for you to try to win!!! (keep reading to learn how)

Pam Callaghan is not only a very talented artist, she is also a kind, sweet, big-hearted friend. She started the blog a year ago wanting to share ideas to help keep scrapbookers and paper crafters motivated.  She graciously shares templates, ideas and creativity.  I am extremely thankful to be one of the contributing artists for her site.  I am also grateful to have Pam as a friend.

I was looking back through the many wonderful posts over the past year and am in awe of all the talent that has been shared.  I'd like to highlight a few of my favorite projects from the past year.

Easy Made Hydrangeas by Dolores.  I just love these little flowers.  Dolores makes them look so easy to make.  I'm going to have to put my left-over scraps to work making some these dandies to use on scrap pages and cards.

Postage Stamp Template by Pam.  Oh my!  Isn't this darling?  And so easy to make.  I love how you can use simple tools to recreate this. I think this template would be great for a travel related page too!

What was I thinking? by Linda C. Linda was a featured artist at the site. I really like how she applied one of Pam's template to help her create 2 different layouts, and helped her deal with that situation we've all been in once in ahile - what to do with paper we bought on a whim!

Reader's Pages Turned into Sketches 4.  This is one of my favorite features of the blog.  Reader's that have shared their scrap pages with us and Pam has turned their works into wonderful sketch/templates!

Designer Showcase: Shaped Cards.  This was one of my favorite projects that we shared.  As you can see, the site isn't just about scrap book pages.  We share all sorts of things, cards, techniques, templates, supply reviews, journaling ideas... you name it!

I could go on. There are so many inspiring ideas to share.  These are just a few of my favorites.

Now the RAK - to be entered for a chance to win the RAK I'd like you to share your 3 favorite posts  from Ideas for Scrapbookers. Just leave me a comment and be sure to include your 3 favs.  Want 2 changes to win???  If you become a follower of my blog, you'll get a 2nd chance at the prize!! Just let me know in your comment that you are now following.  Already a follower?  That's OK - let me know that in your comment and I'll give you a 2nd entry as well!! You have until the end of this week to come back and leave your comment.  I'll close the entries on Friday October 22 (IFS actual anniversary!!) at noon (eastern time).  I'll choose one lucky random commenter and will announce the winner later that day. Good luck!!

From here you can continue on to Dolores' blog!

Happy Hopping!!
