I Have

something to giveaway!!


Interested in learning more?

This Ella eBook, A Year in the Life, is from the talented designers of Write.Click.Scrapbook many of whom you may be familiar with from the Simple Scrapbooks days. There are 30 pages with 24 layouts. You will find several two-page spreads and multi-photo layout ideas. Also, inspiration for monthly and anytime layouts.

This is one of my favorite books so far because the style of the designers resonates so strongly with me. So excited I get to give one away.

All you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know if you've purchased an Ella eBook yet. If so, which is your favorite. If not, what has stopped you from jumping in. That's it. Easy peasy.

In other news, I've been consumed with an new, old obsession. Last week I found this delicious store, City Craft, that has the most extraordinary fabrics. Over the weekend I started a quilt for little bean.


It feels so good to be sewing again. This time is super special. Usually when I make a baby quilt or blanket it's as a gift. I love looking at this & knowing that this time, I get to keep it for my family.

I also bought enough fabric to make Garrett a big boy version. He's so excited but was disappointed I didn't finish it the first night. Truth be told I'm anxious to see the quilts too!!

I'll close comments Thursday night & randomly pick a winner Friday morning. Have a wonderful Monday!

LOVE your fabric choices :) You are so talented. I can't wait to see them done! I'm also a fan of SS and anxious to see what the e-book contains.

Love the fabric. No Ella for me yet with the new baby. Can't wait to try.

Melanie said...

The fabric is lovely. I don't sew and I love to go to a fabric store! I haven't purchased a book because I have been moving across the country and there has been no scrappy goodness going on in my home right now. LOL

Maureen said...

I haven't purchased yet, I always like to flip through a book before I buy, just need to get over that hump.

I absolutely love the fabric you've chosen and am jealous that you are quilting. it's something I've always wanted to do but never learned. In regards to Ella, I just found that site recently after getting back into scrapbooking...I don't have any of the e-books because I decided to jump start my scrapbooking habit with LOM and that was a huge cost! Once I catch up from the cost of that i do plan on checking them out!

My favourite has been 20 Simple Secrets of Happy Scrapbookers by Stacy and Lain.
Can't wait to see the new quilt.

I purchased the quiz book - loved the idea of that book - quizzes for things. But I think my favourite is always "the next book coming out." :-)

Kyla said...

LOVE those fabrics! The boys are going to love them too! ;)

My favorite is 20 Simple Secrets of Happy Scrapbookers, although I have truly been enjoying them all!

Andrea said...

I think my favorite is 20 secrets of happy scrapper, too, but the photo one by Rebecca Cooper is good, too. This one looks very intriguing. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kristin Reinhard said...

I have purchased a couple of Ella books and for sure my fav has been the quizzes one!

I purchased Rebecca Cooper's Ella book! Hoping she does a in person workshop here in Alberta!!!!

Brenda said...

I've purchased two, 20 Simple Secrets of Happy Scrapbookers and Special Effects for Digital Photos. Happy Scrapbookers was my favorite so far but partially because I haven't gotten to work with the Special Effects book yet. I'd love to win this one. Thanks for the giveaway.

I actually haven't bought an Ella book yet. I haven't done a lot of scrapbook pages since summer, and I don't have a really good color printer. I have wanted to get several of them though.

Love the material, where's the store??

I haven't jumped in at Ella yet, waiting to finish several things in the works so that when I buy something I can get right to work!! Recommendations for what will go with LOM???

Jana said...

Those fabrics are wonderful. Can't wait to see your finished quilts.

I haven't gotten any Ella's yet.
Someday...

Marinka said...

Gorgeous fabric indeed!
I didn't order any ebooks from Ella yet... I have so many unfinished BPS classes that I fear for another one adding to my guilt level ;-).... This project sounds good though!

Char said...

I love the Ella ebooks. I really like the 40 tips and the digital photo ebook. I have ordered a few and loved them all!

What one don't I own???? I'll have to confess and say this one I'm trying to win and the new one just released: Stretch your Sketches. Thanks for the chance to win.-Ann
