Creating Keepsakes July/August Issue

If you are an avid Scrapbooker like me, and you subscribe to Creating Keepsakes magazine, then I am sure you are on the edge of your seat every two months waiting for the newest issue to hit newsstands!  Well, I am happy to say, that the wait for the July/August issue is over and you can pick it up TODAY!  Every issue is always packed with the latest amazing products and more inspiration than I know what to do with...and this issue is no exception!  You will find several great Feature Articles in this issue:

"My Hero"
"School's Out for Summer"
"Sweet Teen Scene"
"One for the Gallery Wall"



And I must say, that I am even more super-excited about the July/August issue, because I have THREE layouts appearing in this one!!  A big shocker for me!  I was waiting for the issue to come, so I could really make sure they were in there!! HA!  :)  

The first layout, won the Reader's Pick Poll, thanks to a lot of you who are my faithful Blog readers for your votes.  This layout was actually my first DT layout for Frosted Designs and I just wanted to have a lot of fun with it and create a great Summer look.

These next two layouts were done for an assignment I received from CK.  They both appear in the article "One for the Gallery Wall".  This was a really fun assignment, because I was asked to create two different layouts, using photos from a vacation.  The focus of one of the layouts needed to be about the vacation and the focus for the other had to be family, but used in a frame.  I chose to do a layout for the second part of the assignment and purchased one of the black 12x12 frames.  These are great, because you can display your layout as wall art and most of these type frames have different levels to set your glass, depending on the height of your embellishments.
