Jillibean Soup and Core'dinations Giveaway!

*** Edited to add new images of Jillibean Soup cards ***

Last night I scrapped at my friend Mel's house....till the ween hours of the morn!
I made a layout and a card. The card can't be shared till Tuesday but the layout I can share right now.
Over at Kraft Girl Kits they have a February Sketch Contest. It's a sketch designed by Jakki Weddle. Anyhoo, I nabbed me some of the *NEW* Minestrone collection by Jillibean Soup, which arrived at our store on Friday.

Supplies: Jillibean Soup patterned paper and kraft paper, Core'dinations cardstock, foam layering tape, Zig marker, Cricut diecut title - "Stamped", watercolour pencil crayons, Hampton Art stamps, Staz-On ink, Stampin' Up border punch, date stamp, Sketch designed by Jakki Weddle for Kraft Girl Kits.


So, from RIGHT NOW until Saturday, February 14, 2009 at 3PM EST, I will be taking entries to win a prize pack of Jillibean Soup's Minestrone papers (6 sheets), 2 sheets of printed kraft from the Cold Raspberry collection, 4 Journaling Sprouts, AND 12 sheets of coordinating Core'dinations cardstock. This includes two sheets of their *NEW* Whitewash paper. Ya just can't get better than that!

The Rules: Simple. Post a comment on my blog. Within the body of your comment, give me the name of your favourite homemade soup. On Valentine's Day, at 3PM EST, I will ask my son to pick a number between 1 and the highest number of comments posted. Please only post once. I will then post the winner's name and they can contact me with their mailing address. Be prepared...if you are picked I will be asking for the recipe for your favourite homemade soup to share on this blog. Best of luck!

Here's another project that I made on Saturday night at my friend Mel's house. Be sure to drop by Sketch This! to see the sketch that this card was based on...and take a stab at it yourself...either as a layout or a card.

Supplies: Jillibean Soup patterned paper/kraft paper, journaling sprout and bean seeds, Scenic Route patterned paper (heart), Core'dinations Vintage cardstock, American Crafts Thickers, Storage Unit, Inks & More stamp (fly), Hampton Art letter stamps, Staz-On ink, Fiskars border punch, Stampin' Up border and heart punch, Zig marker, foam layering tape.

This card was the result of Ema writing her name where the teacher's name was supposed to go on her "Hello Kitty" Valentines. The paper is from the Cold Raspberry collection at Jillibean Soup. Check out how friggin' cool their kraft paper looks on sanded Core'dinations cardstock (French Roast in this case).

Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock, Jillibean Soup kraft paper, patterned paper and journaling sprout, Scenic Route grid paper, EK Success letter stamps, Staz-On ink, Stampin' Up border punch, Making Memories sanding block, foam layering tape, ric rac.

  2. OOH! Can I play????? Pretty please? I already told you the layout rocks, but the title work is my absolute fave! And the best home-made soup is chicken and wild rice soup. I will share the recipe with you either way -- it's from Cooking Light and is YUM! If you're looking for one to clog the arteries though I also am fond of the cheddar and broccoli soup from Panera (do they have that in Canada?) - it's awesome. And I have the secret recipe. Ok, it's not a secret, I found it when I googled it but I can pretend - right?
