back-to-school scrapbook page and printed masking tape giveaway!

I can't believe I can say this, but I was actually productive at last week's craft night at my house. I usually avoid working on my scrapbook each month at craft night, because I feel guilty that I'm so behind, but I was determined to use my new scrapbooking goodies from Blue Moon before I put them away and forgot about them. Here's the back-to-school layout I did using this year's photo. Crazy, I know. I still haven't finished this kid's baby album!


I used bits and pieces from Crate Paper's School Spirit line (love it!) as well as paper from Basic Grey's Wander line, and of course, more Japanese masking tape (I told you I was obsessed!). I just like using a little bit here and a little bit there. Can you spot it on this page? I'll give you a little help. . .



I've been so obsessed with the stuff that I persuaded Ginko Papers to do a little giveaway for our readers. So let's do it (wow, two giveaways in a row!). Leave us a comment with the name of your favorite tape bundle from Ginko Papers, and you'll be entered to win a bundle of your choice! Join our e-mail subscription list (on the left sidebar) and you'll be entered a second time (no need to leave a second comment--we'll see you on the subscription list).


Okay, so I'll start. This is my favorite NEW item from Ginko. I love the roses overlaid on the polka dots! And they're turquoise polka dots no less! Perfect. So tell me which one you love, but do it by Monday, October 11, 2010 at 11:59pm. Good luck!

The blue lace tape is exquisite! I wish I could find some locally - our stores have awesome selections of sausage but not much in the way of craft supplies, lol.

SewSuzie said...

All the tapes from Gingko are beautiful - how on earth do you choose a favourite. I do feel however, Paris Flag gets my vote.

Juliette said...

wow, I love the lace blue set, but I'd take anything orange, red, or blue/turquoise! I love their patterns!

shana said...

I think my favorite might be the set simply called "GREEN" (or maybe yellow or orange . . . no, green!) I've been eying printed masking tape for months and have never had any. please, please, please pick me!

I love the "green lace" or the purple triple set, or any with the Eiffel Tower! SO COOL. I mail a LOT of gifts, and I can see using this to use on both the wrapping paper inside, as an "x" shape around the package, and on the outside to look very fancy :)
