The winner will receive a Pioneer Scrapbooking Kit, including three photo albums, adhesive, and letter stickers. Two runner-ups will receive either a gift certificate for a Great Scrapbook Events Crop or a Close to My Heart Weekend Camp from Dana Swadling. Below are the rules and info on a convenient way to have your layout returned to you. Also, don't forget we are looking for "scrap-aholics". Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 15 random readers will be chosen to receive a free gift to support your habit. And last, but not least, remember to email us with a story about one of our advertisers you have visited. Two winners will be chosen to receive "A Page Out of Life: A Scrapbooking Novel" by, Kathleen Reid. Anyone is eligible to participate!
Here are the rules provided by Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine:
Layouts are judged based on creativity, photo quality, and overall design. Include your name, address, phone number and email address and send your original layout to:
Sylvan Lake, MI 48320
If you would like your layout returned to you, please follow these directions: One of our readers shared a great method for sending and returning a page layout. When you package your layout to send to us, use 2 pieces of 12 by 12 cardboard-the type that come with 12 by 12 paper packs or page protectors. This creates a safe, sturdy way to send your layout to us. Put your layout and contact info between the two pieces of cardboard and use clear packaging tape to tape the bottom and 2 sides closed. You now have made an envelope. Leave the top open. Use another piece of cardboard, about 12 by 2 inches to create a flap over the top of your envelope. Tape only one end of the flap to the envelope so it can open and close, but do not tape it closed yet. Go to the post office and have your package weighed. When you determine the amount of shipping you need, buy extras stamps to equal the amount of shipping and place them inside the home-made envelope. Then tape closed the envelope and mail it to:
Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine
Sylvan Lake, MI 48320
When we are done with your layout we will put the layout back in the envelope and use the postage you enclosed to return it to you. We will use the other side of the envelope to print your address. This is a great way to recycle, keep your layout safe when shipping, and make it easy to get your layout back.
Don't forget about Scrappy Chic's Monthly Challenge - also a Holiday layout, due by 1/3/09. You can find more information about this at www.ScrappyChicLivonia.com.
