tips & tricks, organizing, and a giveaway...

Have you heard about the newest special issue from Creating Keepsakes Magazine? 

It's called scrapbooking tips & tricks and it's available to purchase now!  

STT120110

This is a new special series that will be published 4 times a year and each issue will have a special focus. The first issue is dedicated to ORGANIZATION - yay!  It's full of organizational ideas for your supplies, your scrap space, your albums, your layouts, and more!  I'm kind of a junkie when it comes to organization ideas, so this is definitely a fun issue for me!  Even if you consider yourself completely organized, you'll probably find something worthwhile in the pages of this issue...like defining your organizational style or fun ideas for hosting a crop, or fun time saving tricks...or all of the above.  Definitely all of the above (and more)!   And don't worry - there are lots and lots of fun, creative scrapbooking ideas too!

I even have a few layouts included...and while I can't show you exactly what I contributed...I can give you a hint.  Check out THIS blog post.  If you like it, you'll probably be interested in my pages in this special issue. ;) 

Sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day gift to give yourself, right?!?  Check it out HERE.  And if you decided to purchase it (which you most definitely should, lol) you can use the code TIPSB to get 20% off at checkout.  Hurry though, the code will only work through February 15th. 

   If you'd prefer to get 100% off, leave a comment here on this post - I'll draw a random winner to receive a FREE copy on Saturday morning - so be sure to leave a comment and check back this weekend! :o)
