So, it's Groundhog Day & a Giveaway

When I first learned about Groundhog Day, I was extremely amused, I tell you! Well, where I live, we don't need groundhogs to predict anything because we never get snow!
But anyways... for all of you who are having a harsh winter and for those who are missing the splendors of winter, here's something to cheer you up... the newest issue of Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks from Creating Keepsakes. This time it's all about TEXTURES... man, how I dig textures!

It's a close look at various ways of adding textures to your pages. Ever since I got this in my hands, I'm flipping pages and going, 'Ooooh! Gotta try this one... and that one... and this one too!' And I have a feeling many of you will react the same way :)
Here's a layout from my "Textured Titles" article using stamps and 3D paint:

And more sneak peeks here:

You could use coupon code TEXTDT  for free shipping on orders of $25 or more at the Scrap & Paper Shop and it expires on 3/31/11.

Now, thanks to CK, I can give away ONE copy of the Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Texture issue to one randomly selected lucky winner who leaves a comment to this post stating their favorite way of adding texture to layouts by Sunday (2/6/2011) night. It might be a technique you have tried, dying to try or too scared to try! Also, don't forget to leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you in case you win but forget to check back. I'll announce the winner on monday, 2/7.

Good luck to you all :)

This looks like such a great book, I'd love to snag a copy! My go-to texture is to use tacky tape and layer on glitter, glass beads or flocking. -Melissa (mrenkawitz@csarchpc.com)

I just saw this issue at the bookstore the other day and loved your "Silly Bands" layout, Mou! I have never tried dimensional paint on a layout before, but it is the perfect accent for this page. I usually add texture to my projectsd by layering different products, especially ribbon or twine, buttons, or felt. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

What an awesome issue.. I love dimensional paint, embossing and i jsut found a jar of old embossing paste at a garage sale.. Am gonna try that next..

KateB said...

hhhmm....fav way to add texture? Thick paint, that thick snow stuff and also trims like tulle and velvet...

I used flocking for the first time a few days ago. So fun and such great texture!

Textures are it. I need help, I'm so texture challenged. Pick me.

Dawn W said...

I love to add anything and everything! Ribbon, torn paper, mesh, paint, wood, Flower Soft, glitter...you name it I have used it at one time or another. My CUTTLEBUG is my constant sidekick, so anything that goes through there is a textured bit of fun to add too!



Laura said...

Hmmm, I would have to say stitching, fabric and paint. Thanks for the giveaway!
