Artist Print Tray Baseball Style!
The artist print tray in 4x6 black is perfect for sports displays! I've taken this print tray and moved the handle to the other side so that the 4x6 space is horizontal. (just unscrew the handle and re screw it at the top) Fill the holes with black paint.
I accented the tray with kraft cardstock that I distressed using some Tim Holtz Tools. Spray the paper with the Mini Mister and make it plyable. Wod it up into a ball, then flatten it out. Use the Ink blending tool, and use the brown ink on it. Spread the brown ink on the paper to disress it. Allow the paper to dry.
Accent the Name of the Game Baseball paper using the brown ink and the ink blending tool. Adhere leather accents with Beacon's Fabric Adhesive.


Accent edges using edge distessor, and brown ink.
Supplies Used:
Name of the Game Baseball paper
Creek Bank Creations Clear Sports Accent
Kraft Cardstock
4x6 Artist Print Tray.

This will soon be offered in a kit form! Stay tuned!

Bazzill Cardstock: White for chair
Bazzill Cardstock Dotted Swiss: Mudd Puddles (brown) cut to 4.25x6.25 for photo mat, 1x12 for strips on page, 2- 1.25"x3" for title mat, cut one tag from Cricut Bags, Tags and More Cartridge.
7 Gypsies Paper Line Barcelona
I love this paper line because it is so versatile. It looks great as this beach layout, but works well on many other projects. These are all double sided papers with lots of options!
Tools Used:
Products Used:
Glossy Accents
May Arts Hemp String

This layout uses some new products that are fun to work with. Take the two brown strips, and accent with Mudd Puddles product. Just a small amount will do, just make sure you have one clean edge. Allow the product to dry 2-3 hours to completely dry.

Locate all the page pieces (except the tag)and accent the edges with the edge distressor, then accent with brown ink. Place the pattern paper on the page as shown, leaving a place on the upper right hand side for a journal tag. Attach paper to tag to make a tag topper using the tiny attacher.

Cut the beach chair from the Cricut Cartridge from white paper, and Creative Imaginations Wood Paper using the Life Is A Beach Cartridge. Cut at 4". Layer the two pieces together. Place on page as shown.
Cut the title at 1" from the Life Is A Beach Cartridge. Use the font on the cartridge. Assemble title as shown.
Choose a photo for a focal point. To mat the photo assemble as shown, using edge distressor on edges. Accent photo mat with hemp string from May Arts.
To make the accent pieces cut the star fishes at 1" from the Life Is a Beach cartridge. Use a brown pen to accent pieces, and accent edges with brown ink.
Cut the sand dollar piece (round piece) using the Life Is A Beach Cartridge at 1.25". Cut a photo mat using brown paper. Adhere together to make one piece. Place glossy accents on the piece and allow to dry. This piece will take several hours to dry. Accent with hemp string from May Arts.

I wanted to make an album for a gift this Christmas as a gift. I designed the album you see here that I call "So Happy Together". The album was a big hit and everyone started asking for it in kit form. This book is a bright and cheerful home for your family photos. I've used papers from Jillibean Soup to capture a fun and happy spirit. Our book is a 6 page chipboard binder that gives you plenty of room for photos and journaling. This "So Happy Together" album is accented with a big bow on the spine, and a cute red knob on the front.
My instructions are detailed, and are four pages of detail and color photos.

You can read more details and see about ordering this album here!

Creek Bank Creations Tickets!

It's just a fun little page accent we are offering in plain white. You accent with ink, glimmer mist, chalk, or paint. These little tickets are only .36 each and come in over 30 catergories. We do wholesale this product! You can order them here!
I've just been buried after my son's surgery and still playing catch up. My son is doing well and headed back to school 2 hours a day for the first time today. (you can read all about this at http://www.tjbcreeek.blogspot.com/) All is good on the home front, except that we are still doing tons of meds and infusions that are disturbing our sleep! :) The gals have been working hard at the shop to keep things going, and they've done a great job. That being said we're behind on many projects. If things still seem strange it's because we're just trying to get caught up. (for example you'll notice we don't have all the images up of the tickets yet...we're trying!)
We are headed to Louisville, KY this weekend for The Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention. (Feb 26-27). We've been working hard to get the booth loaded and ready for show and working in new products the minute the arrive in the door. We're bringing the new tickets, and hopefully two new kits, and lots of new stuff from Ranger and Prima are supposed to be arriving Wednesday. It's fun when new things start arriving!
You'll find us on the road...
March 26 & 27 Memories Expo Columbus, Ohio
April 9 & 10 Creating Keepsakes Convention St. Louis, MO.
We are still open in the shop every Friday from 10am-5pm at our home base in Muncie, Illinois. A note about the shop...as we have new products arriving we are moving sku lines around. This means the shop at present is VERY VERY bare!!! We've pulled hundreds of skus out as old or deletes, and until new products arrive things will be slim pickens for a few weeks. We are open, and you are welcome to crop and shop, but we do want you to know that when I take the inventory OUT to a show over the next few weeks things are empty in our shop. As you see us accouncing new products you'll know the shop in Illinois is filling back up with goodies for you to purchase!
Keep Scrapbooking!

Update on Julie's Son...
Brye got released from Mayo Clinic yesterday and they are on their way home today. It's a 9 hour trip so please keep Byre and the Creek family in your thoughts and prayers. He's still a couple of rough weeks in front of him as well. The support that our customers and friends have provided them has been amazing. We've received countless numbers of emails of support for them at the store and it's been very moving. I know it has really given Julie a lot of comfort and strength. Last Saturday at the crop, we received a ton of cards for them as well. It's been wonderful and we just want to say thank you to all of you.

210 Crop is almost here!!
We have 5 spaces left for next weekend's 210 crop! That's right only 5 seats left! Sign up today if you're interested. We will close the registration on Tuesday or when the seats sell out - whichever is first. Here's the link to sign up for the crop on our website.

Also if you coming to the crop and want either Lunch or Supper or both for Saturday, please sign up and pay for them by Sunday. I will be calling the caterer on Monday with numbers.

Look for another post early next week with more crop details.

Remember we are doing a Creative Challenge again. Here's what you need to know:
