Open Call{eta!}

Here we go again! We are having another open call for unpublished talent. Submit any one, unpubbed layout of yours for a chance at a Concroption prize by February 9.

Abigail is joining us this week for her 15 minutes of scrapbook fame.
her bio: Hello! My name is Abigail, but I generally go by Abby. I'm 20 years old and more than usually strange for my age. I like tea (and I'm adamant that it must be Earl Grey and from Twinings of London) and parasols and foggy days, and when I'm not scrapbooking or doing some other sort of crafty pursuit, I'm usually to be found with my nose buried in a book, watching some costume drama or other and sighing over the beautiful dresses, or writing historical Epics. I'm also fond of photography, rodeos, and crime-show dramas such as Criminal Minds, CSI, or the more light-hearted but tremendously fun Psych, and someday I would like to go skydiving! In short, I'm a bit of an oddball, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I think I need hardly add that I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen for this week's "famer"! I have been constantly inspired by the layouts posted on this blog, and I hope that I am able to inspire someone else in my turn! :)

and favorite UnPubbed page:
Here are ours...

This LO is not one of my favorite new ones, but it is one of my New Year's Goal ones... Meaning, I used some old "stash" items to make it. That was a challenge, as I have fallen way out of love with these papers and embellishments. I literally had to tell myself to back away from some of my favorite go-to products. So, grab some of your stash and go!

Remember to link us to your layout by February 9!

Christina's 15 Minutes

This week's Famer:Christina Clouse

Blog: Coffee Girl


Hi there! My name is Christina. I’m 26 and live in Seattle with my boyfriend of 8 ½ years Greg. I love playing with art supplies, wearing pretty shoes and watching CSI. (Not all at the same time--but I should probably try sounds like a lot of fun!)
I’ve been scrapbooking seriously for about a year and a half and totally love it! I’ve recently discovered how much fun paint can be on layouts and am still trying to figure out my own personal style. I love trying new techniques. For example, I just learned how to emboss and I have also recently gotten into soldering. I also have a serous addiction to stamps, Hambly and AC Thickers. While I have never been published, you can also find my designs on my blog as well as on the Sweet Spuds Kit Club website and the challenge site ScrapMojo.

Christina's awesome layout:
