Spellbinders Giveaway Winner!

Hey there!

I TOTALLY spaced posting the winner of the big Spellbinders giveaway yesterday!  So sorry!  We've been celebrating my Macey's 13th birthday.  I was following 5 teeenagers around the mall all day and was ready to crash by the time I got home.  Hee hee...

Anyway.... thanks for all the sweet comments.  I wish I could give something away to every single person.  *sigh*  But I CAN make one person super happy!  I drew this person's name....

Card Kits.....

For those of you who were members of my Monthly Card Kit club or those who would LIKE to be..... I've decided to go back to doing them again.
The response from deciding to close up shop was seriously overwhelming! I'm shocked and grateful and humbled that ya'll loved my kits so much.
I will continue to work through the issues of not having my own space temporarily to keep bringing you the kits.... If you were on my list before then you will probably hear from me. But it certainly can't hurt to email me at shannavineyard@gmail.com to let me know you want back in! Anyone is welcome! And the June peeks will be posted on my blog in the next few days. Have a great weekend!

Spellbinders Giveaway

Now that we are deep into 2012 and my Design Team term working with Spellbinders was offically over in March.... I thought it would be fun to look back on lots of the projects that I was able to create for them throughout 2011 and early 2012.  Because they used our projects for different reasons, we weren't able to share or post our creations on our blogs until they appeared in the Spellbinders Idea Gallery.  And because I wasn't very good at following up on them.... that means I get to share a lot
 of them in one big post here! 

Soooooooo..... I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite projects and hopefully hear what yours are!   Leave a comment telling me which project is your fave and you will be entered to win the big Spellbinders giveaway.  See what's included at the bottom of this post! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I love love love Spellbinders and all their products!  They were insanely generous with us and I will always be so grateful for the fun opportunity I had!  But seriously... I have so many fun dies now that I won't possibly use them all.  That's why I've gone through my collection and have decided to give a bunch away to one lucky winner.  All of these dies may or may not have even been used.  And if they were used.... it was only a very few times.  Leave a comment telling me which of my projects shown above is your favorite by Monday, May 28th and you could win all of this valued at over $400.00 retail:

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Spring Mini

Well.... it's my turn to play again over on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog and there are some FUN things to be seen today!  You don't want to miss out!  Myself and a few other Biker Chicks each created mini albums using the Hello Spring line.

Guest Blogger at ScrapbookSteals.com

I am so excited to be a guest blogger over at ScrapbookSteals.com today! 
Have you been there?  Have you seen all the awesome
scrapbooking supplies you can get for super prices?
I have to admit I was beyond excited when I ripped into my package of goodies
and saw what line I was lucky enough to be working with....

I’m a HUGE Echo Park fan like so many others of you out there.  But their “Hello Summer” line is for sure in my Top 3 favorites!!! I’m a sucker for the color palette they used and all the happy and bright images that can’t help but make your projects fun!

For my main project I chose to create a fun summer banner that I cut out of ¼" wood then altered.  The sweet little banner border sticker in this set was what inspired me!  Once I cut five banners from wood using my scroll saw, I drilled the holes to thread the twine through and painted them white. Next I covered the fronts with some of the fabulous papers from “Hello Summer” and then went to work adding all the fun embellishments. Last I threaded the dark brown hemp/jute through the banners to pull it together and make it hang. This was a super fun and easy project. 

(Be sure to see bottom of this post for info on ordering your own wood banners.) 

It's no secret that I’m a BIG fan of card making too!  I couldn’t help but create a few sweet summery greetings with this line as well.  With all the cute journaling cards and fun stickers... putting together a few cards was a cinch!  Hope these make you smile!


Okay.... I thought that there might be a few of you who will want to create or alter your own wood banner so I made the sets available in my ETSY Shop.  Be sure to purchase your Echo Park Hello Summer kits from ScrapbookSteals.com but if you want a fun wood banner to decorate CLICK HERE to purchase one. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
