Treasured Scrapbooking monthly scrapbook and card kits

Treasured Scrapbooking

Monthly Kits and Much More

This kit is absolutely beautiful! I love the colours and the embellishments are just gorgeous! I love the Kaiser rubons and alphas (and am totally digging the Kaiser packaging!). Here are a few of the projects I made with this awesome kit!

I had so much fun with this kit. The Theresa Collins' die cuts were another fave of versatile for journaling or for layering on cards or layouts :)
This month, I had the honor of working with the Gorgeous November Kit #1...Check out a few of the gorgeous projects using this kit...

Also, included in this month's November Kit #1 was this cute little Checkbook Cover, perfect to alter for the NEW year...

I had the pleasure of working with Kit 2 for the month of November, and let me just say it rocked! I absolutely loved the variety of papers and goodies that came in this kit. Here's a couple of projects I did with it.

Its that time of the month here at Treasured Scrapbooking! Time for the Guest Designer contest for the month of December, how cool would that be to hold the GDT spot for the exciting month of December? So we need a great November project to kick off our search, and our fearless leader Erin has come up with a great little recipe for your success :)

So get all of your ingredients, ummm I mean supplies, together and follow the recipe , make sure you dont leave out any of the requirements and maybe, just maybe, you will be the next GDT ;)

You may apply this recipe to either a layout, a card or an altered item.
Your theme is remincent of the season, thankful, thoughtful or reflective.
Include something reflective such as glitter, bling, shimmerz, glimmer mist, a mirror, etc
Tie a ribbon and include it, this way you have tied your thoughts together.
Memories are often layered upon each other, one building upon another, so you must have some layers.
We want to see some journaling, tell us your feelings, and the journaling can be hidden.

Deadline for the December GDT Contest is November 12 at midnight your time.

As GDT you will recieve one of the monthly kits, you will do one layout and a sketch for the 1st reveal on the 1st, and a layout and altered item for the 2nd reveal on the 15th. As a part of the team you will select a Layout of the Day on Fridays, have a chance to submit an item to the newsletter if you want and create a challenge with an example to run for the month. Additionally you would be expected to participate on the board daily and leave praise in the gallery.

Post your submission in the gallery and link it up here.

Cant wait to see what you do :)
In case you didn't already know, there are big changes afoot at Treasured Scrapbooking. Leslie has decided to sell the store, and I decided to buy it!

From Leslie's post on the boards:

I have some news to share with you...some sad, but some very exciting. I've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few months and I've decided to sell TS. As I'm sure most of you have noticed, I've been having a hard time keeping up with TS the way I used to. Life, my job, family, my mom's health have all taken precedence. And as much as I love TS (it's like my baby!) my heart just isn't in the business side of it anymore. I just don't feel like I have the time to give the site the attention it needs/deserves. Plus, my husband found out recently that he's going to be activated next year (he's in the reserves) in June and he'll be gone for 6-12 months in Baghdad so I'm sure I'll have even less time then. We're trying to get some stuff done around the house and take an early vacay before he leaves.

Anyway, this all started when I was approached a few months ago by someone interested in buying the site. I didn't sell it to this person - I wasn't looking for a buyer - I hadn't even considered selling it before that, but it got me thinking. I kind of took it as a sign that maybe it was time to let the site go. I've just been so stressed over the past year or so trying to get everything done. If I didn't have this dang day job, it would be a different story but the bills need paid and my job is too good to give up.

Which brings me to the good news. I am thrilled to announce that our very own Erin has decided to take over TS!! We are in the process now of getting all the administrative details organized and I'm packing up all the inventory to ship out to her. I have put so much time, love, sweat & tears into building this site. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to take it to where I wanted it to go or where I knew it could go with more time. I write this with bittersweet emotions as it makes me VERY sad to not call it my own anymore...on the other hand, I really need a break. I just know Erin will do a fabulous job in making TS even better and I am just so excited for her! Erin will be officially taking over on Nov. 1 but I have already put the kits/card kit together for November so her first kits will be in December. The Design Team has agreed to stay on for another month to ease the transition and Erin will be posting a Design Team call soon for the new term that will start in January.

I want to thank you all for all the support you've given to me and Treasured Scrapbooking over the past 2 1/2 years. It has been just a pleasure to be a part of such a creative, giving, caring group of ladies. I really consider you all friends and family. And I'm sure you'll all give Erin all the support she needs in getting started in her new endeavor! I will really miss putting the kits together every month and running the site but I'm actually looking forward to getting the chance to scrap again and just be part of the board!! Congratulations Erin!!

I just have to say I have always loved Treasured Scrapbooking, and I am very dedicated to making it a friendly welcoming and inspiring place to hang out! To celebrate all the changes, I am having a sale!!! :) Nothing better than a good sale in my opinion! So for the next week and half (or so) all past kits and online classes are 50% off! They have been going fast, so if you've had your eye on one, you'd better snatch it up fast!

Also, we have added a fan page on Facebook, so head over and become a fan, I've been doing giveaways every so often, and there's a coupon code posted as well! :)

Thank you to everyone for the kind supportive words you've shared with me. I really intend to give TS even more of my heart, and I hope you'll come share in the fun.

OH! I almost forgot, we're also holding a Design Team call right now! Check the forum for the details!
