Fall Projects

Another layout using Creek Bank Creations Rings Chipboard Sheet. I used the biggest ring for the outside edge, and accented both rings with brown ink. I cut the striped paper (Tim Coffery Stripe ) into a 2.5" strip, then traced the circle onto the paper. I carefully cut along the line, then with the 1/2 moon shape I had left (which will go inside the circle) I trimmed the paper down a little at a time until it fit inside the circle. I matted the large ring onto the leaf paper( Karen Foster Autumn Leaves Paper), and placed 2 photos inside the circle in the upper left.

Gotta love the Autumn colored Ball Fringe, felt flowers, and brown Felt Thicker letters


I made this embellishment by layering the flowers, and then adhering the ball fringe inside the center with Beacon's Fabric Glue. I ran the fringe around the inside edge, then cut small pom pom's off and glued them on one by one.


We always come up with some quick and cheap gift ideas around Christmas. The bottle carrier has been around Creek Bank Creations for a long time. For $1.25 it's a great way to give a COOL gift. This year we've used Jillibean Soup papers to decorate one that can be given to a teacher. I LOVE the way you can give your child's teacher a report using the beef bouillon paper from Jillibean Soup. It has an entire page of repart cards on it!

We used more felt thickers here (multi use saves us all money). We used the following papers:





The Covered Bridge Festival is just weeks away. I love this time of year...because I love the festival. :) We're gearing up with our new Covered Bridge Products which we will be adding to as time goes on! You can find all the Covered Bridge Items (more than what I've shown here) on our website here!
If you are attending the festival You will find us in the Collom's General Store . We are bringing custom papers, clear stamps and stickers custom made for the Covered Bridge Festival! See their website here http://www.collomsgeneralstore.com/
Collom's General Store is a tan (used to be pink) building on the North side of main street. As you enter Bridgeton from ANY direction you will see large parking lots on the out skirts of town. What we experienced last year is that there is parking just North of the main street directly downtown for the same price. Take Main street to Allen street. Parking is actually off Allen Street. This downtown parking lot is convenient and just north of our building. Here is a map of downtown Bridgeton to help: http://coveredbridges.com/bridgeton/map.htm The building we are located in is labled "Parke Place" on this map. You can actually park behind the building and enter from the back of the building.
If there are certain things you want you can place orders via our WEBSITE. Choose the local pick up option and let us know you want them delivered to the festival. (if you don't mark your order FESTIVAL we will assume it is a pick up that will occur in Muncie, IL). This is a good idea if you have custom books you want built.
Please do us the honor of telling your friends that Creek Bank Creations, Inc. will be attending the Covered Bridge Festival.

Below is a photo of a close up of the title. Keely changed the brad to orange, but painting it white and covering it with orange stickles.

Great New Thickers From Amercican Crafts used here!

The layout below shows a great little technique keely used...the scalloped edge ran all the way around this paper. She cut the scalloped edge but left the holes and detail, then used the scallop as part of the page design. Pretty neat!

We still have a few kits left!

A few new things...A Few Favorite Things!

Favorite Things...The Photo Display from 7 Gypsies!
This was one of my personal favorite things that came out of the Summer buying show. I HAD to have it. The photo display will hold anything you clip on it, which means cards, ATC Cards, products, stickers, or photos. Unlike others this is ALL metal, and the three teirs are adjustable.

Then you get to add the fun stuff! Treasures!
Look closely..you'll see the bling below!

(these are great for all kinds of things like hanging off album spines!)

Our gypsy friends also came out with a new style of ring for book binding which I liked. These are cable rings, and I love the unique look they give. You can color these by dipping them in alcohol ink, but I like them plain and think they will perfect on a "guy project".

Here are the cable rings with some 7 gypsies treasures hanging from them!

These pretty dangles have been around since Summer. I just love them!


Now if that wasn't enough new stuff to overwhelm you there is more. We have more fabric pieces to go with the Donna Downey Fabric Album!

Buttons!
More Fabric Words and shapes!




Now here is a fun offer just for you newsletter and blog readers! The first 20 orders will receive a FREE Donna Downey Fabric Iron On!

Free Freight on web orders over $50.00

Marcie made a great halloween layout with the chatterbox artsylicous line! Take a look at the fun border Marcie made on the page by punching out the pumpkin faces from the pumpkin paper in the kit!
Each kit contains a plain orange ticket. Marcie accented hers!
The kit can go either fall or Halloween with LOTS of goodies left! This fall layout Marcie made with the scalloped edged cream paper (background) and the chocolate artsylicous paper!



The frame on this page was black.....not your color? Do what Marcie did and paint it cream. The flowers on the right were cut from the pattern paper in the kit.

Mud Puddles

This hot top 10 pick from CHA is flying out the door. We ran out of our first inventory and are not restocked and shipping. With our restock we've picked up a few more colors.


Creek Bank Creations Baseball book with golf Mudd Puddles. We also have soccer!

Creek Bank Creations Castle Book accented with Malibu Mudd Puddles and Tahiti Mud Puddles
When applying this product to larger pieces of chipboard I recommend that you cover the surface using the sand applicator knife. While it is still wet, wipe the edges clean with the knife. Allow the project to air dry around an hournad a half. It will start to bow on you at this point. Cover the pieces with wax paper then place some books on the projects. This will flatten out your project and it will dry flat. Allow to dry several hours or overnight. Remember to keep the knife clean after each application or the adhesive will dry on your knife making it impossible to apply the sand in a smooth fashion.


If you are applying this product to scrapbook pages we suggest you just use a small amount to accent titles, photos and more. Mud puddles is the perfect accent for Creek Bank Creations chipboard words like beach, vacation, cruise or splash! You can order the word BEACH in our Build a Book program by ordering a 5 letter book and telling us you want the word BEACH. You can also choose any beach name by just ordering the number of letters in the word (for example malibu would be a 6 letter book).

Fast and easy sports Pages!



Sometimes you just need a fast and easy sports page. We have the answer!


Our new clear sports line comes on a clear transparent sheet. Each sheet contains a title, tag, qoute box and accent pieces! Just punch the pieces apart from the parent sheet...



Choose 1 pattern paper and 2 sheets each of the cardstock colors that match your favorite team.
Cut the pattern paper into a 3"x12" strip, then cut the large piece left into a 9"x9" square. Use one color of cardstock for your background and the other for accenting and photo mats. Place the pattern paper on the page as shown.

You can use the leftover pattern paper scraps to place BEHIND your clear piece. This gives you a custom unqiue title. Mat the title too for a great look. We recommend Vellum glue dots to adhere the clear pieces to your scrapbook pages!

You can add color to your pages by taking the clear pieces and placing pattern behind them. Just cut them out. How simple is that! Now you can journal on the pieces with a sharpie!

If you like more embellishments on your pages now you can add ribbons, brads or buttons!




It's simple, fast and fun!


(sorry no basketball available at this time)
The best way to shop for sports stuff on our site is to type the sports name in the search engine. You'll see all the sports items together!
Retailers, teachers and page kit folks...we wholesale this product. Order in 6's. Our order requirement is only $35.00!!
