I’ve been working on some layouts/cards/projects for CHA.  I will be sharing some of them in the next couple of weeks.  This one uses the Cream of Mush Collection, Brown and Green Journaling Sprouts,  Harvest Bean Seeds and ribbons/fibers from our Bean Stalks.

More to come…

Karen and I will be at B&B Scrapbooks in Powell again this Saturday from 3-5pm.  They’re celebrating their 2nd anniversary and we get to get in on the action!!!!  We will be making this “Life’s Joy” mini-book out of brown lunch bags.  Please stop by!  We will also have a card option for those not interested in the album.  We even get to use Stickles for you Stickles fans – you know who you are. 🙂




Everyone will get a package of the red sprouts with their mini-book.  Some will be used in the book and the rest are yours to keep.  Here are some great ideas for using the sprouts – other than scrapbooking.





If we have any kits left over, I will give one away next Monday.  Also, I will post instructions for the mini-album in case you can’t make it to Powell on Saturday.

Have a great day!

Happy Sprout Day! 

Not really, just made that up…




The Jillibean Soup Journaling Sprouts are here!!!  Woo Hoo!  Love these things.  I used lots of them on pages this past weekend.  So cute and easy to use!

You can get circles or squares.  Each design comes in 6 colors on white (black, brown, red, orange, pink, green) and 4 colors on kraft (black, brown, red, orange).

Here are the jpgs of the designs.

So……..who wants some?  How about the first 25 people to leave a comment will get a package of sprouts.  You pick the color, paper (kraft or white) and shape (circles or squares).  Just leave a comment about what color you want and why you picked that color and I’ll send the sprouts out this week.  International participants are welcome!

Have fun!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you everyone for participating!  I sent e-mails to all 25 winners.  Please let me know if you did not get an e-mail or if you do not receive your sprouts.
