What do you do with that???? We've been asked alot this summer about our "rings" chipboard. Some folks think it is a template, others offer advice on what they think is....and we have to smile. This 12x12 sheet of heavy weight chipboard is meant to be cut apart and used on scrapbook pages.

For the layout above I cut the rings apart from the master sheet using an exacto knife. Then I sanded off any "nubs" that remained with my lil sis sanding stick. I planned out my layout design and backed the rings with paper. I like to use the Scotch Quick Dry glue to adhere the paper to the backs of the rings because I can get a thin line of glue all around the circle, then adhere it to the paper.

I could of painted the rings before adhering them, or put some ink on them. They even look good if you color them with copic markers. Basically you can use them staight from the sheet or alter them.
The paper circle accents were made using my circle punhces and the Heidi Swapp Edge Distressor.

This layout was made using Creek Bank Creations Products and My Minds Eye Paper. We're offering a special package deal on the products so you can order what we've got here and make your own layout!

We've put together a kit so you can make this layout at home. We've packed the kit with enough cardstock and papers so that if you want to make this layout into a two page spread you can. There will also be plenty of chipboard pieces left from our large 12x12 sheets of chipboard to complete several more layouts!

Here is what is in this special kit!

2 sheets Bazzill Cardstock Java

2 sheets My Minds Eye Tiny Dancer Pirouette Twirling circles paper

2 sheets My Minds Eye Dance Studio Die Cut Paper

1 frame My Minds Eye MME-PL 1184

The total cost price of the products comes to $16.65...we're offering this special collection to our online bloggers and newsletter readers for only $10.99.

Other things you need to complete this layout:


We will be in Duluth, Georgia this weekend at Scrapbook Expo. If you want this special offer at the show print this off and bring it with you! We will also be extending a 10% off discount on any one item to our blog readers and newsletter subscribers. (YOU MUST BRING a copy of this with you to receive discounts!) I am still in need of booth help so let us know if you can run the register with us!

We are open on Fridays at home in Muncie Illinois. We've had a great time this Summer in the crop room on Fridays and have enjoyed having ladies in house scrapbooking! We're open from 9am-5pm every Friday.

Here's the layouts we made from the wonderful kit...
"Born in the USA" by Marcie
Notice how she combined two different Creek Bank Creations Chipboard Swirls to make this little element. Very Cute!

Marcie used the EK Success Binding Edge Punch on this mat.

I like how she pulled the edge up on the corner to show the other side of the paper.

"At the Pool" by Marcie
A simple design that packs a punch!

She used the Fiskars Threading Water punch here...

She also used the Ultra Thick Embossing Powder on the chipboard letters. View our blog here to read how to do this technique!

"USA Fireworks" by Marcie

Note how she traced a shape and cut it out. You can download many different shapes such as this one off the internet and cut them out to achived this style.

"CELEBRATE" by Marcie
Great 2 page layout.

Here's a close up of all the ribbons she used.


I traced the Creek Bank Creations 12 x12 Chipboard Bracket onto the striped paper. Using the Magic Matter, I traced the same bracket using a white pen onto the navy cardstock and cut it out. (Don't know how to use the Magic Matter? Check out this blog post for more information.) Also notice the looped ribbon. I used the Beacon's Fabric Tac Permanent Liquid Adhesive to hold this in place. I love this adhesive, it's a great multi-purpose adhesive in scrapbooking and crafts!

"SMILES" by Keely
I layered four of the different papers to achive this look. I also inked the "FREE" Jenni Bowlin card to give it a vintage feel.
Here I used one of the rub ons to cover this chipboard flower. I painted the edges with white paint to make it stand out.

"CELEBRATE!" by Keely


"DAY AT THE ZOO" by Keely

I cut 12 pictures down to 3" x 2" so that I could get them all on one page.

Here's a close up of the journaling card. I turned the "Top 10" journaling spot over and used the back. I used a lot of the rub ons, the red and music sheet stars and then layered two ribbons. I held the 2 ribbons together with staples.

This is a great kit with tons of possiblities! We're sure you' re gonna love it!
