Bella BLVD, Jillibean Soup, and Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Blog Crawl!!!




Today is the day!!!!!!!!!!!! In an industry that is going through some growing pains 3 very bright ladies and friends came together with the brilliant idea of this Blog Crawl. Stephanie, Jill and Nikki joined together with this amazing idea to spread the word about their companies, give back to those who love their products, and spotlight their designers all in one swift swoop! This is a real lesson for the scrapbooking world as well as industry itself! Congrats ladies!

There are over 50 handmade giveaways and 3 large product giveaways retailing at $50 each from the companies!

You have the weekend to hop around to the blogs of Bella BLVD, Jillibean Soup, and Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker as well as the blogs of the participating design team members. They will all be linked to the manufacture's blogs. Leave a comment and be entered not only into the design teams homemade project RAKS but also will have a change at winning the product giveaways!

Bella Blvd Studio Blog: http://www.bellablvd.typepad.com/
Jillibean Soup: http://www.jillibeansoup.typepad.com/
Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker: http://nikkisdoghouse.blogspot.com/

As both a design team girl at Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker and an Artista at Bella BLVD I will be doing a RAK for both companies!

I made this mail slot using products from Nikki's Willow Bee line of papers! Of course I made this as a RAK but now I really need to make one for myself! What a cute way to stay organized!

I made this altered tin and matching card using Bella's Sweet Celebrations line. This card and tin were published in the Jan/Feb issue of Simply Handmade Magazine!

Have a great time this weekend crawling through all these amazing designers products...and good luck! With so many giveaways up for grabs you may be a winner!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Here are some of the links to the Bella and Nikki Designers...have fun! To have a chance at winning one of my RAKS don't forget to leave a comment by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday March 7th.
