Premier Top Picks—January 2014

with 7 Comments

Welcome to our Premier Top Picks announcement for January 2014. I’m excited to share with you last month’s Top Picks from our January 2014 Premier Gallery, but first let’s take a look at the kit and videos that inspired the beautiful scrapbook pages.

Featured Premier Kit—January 2014
Who can resist a sweet treat? Definitely not me—especially during the colder months of the year when the body just craves a sugar hit! Shabby Miss Jenn’s Sweet Comforts kit is perfect for creating scrapbook pages of your sweet food memories. My favorite element in the whole kit is the candy cane striped alpha, because it reminds me of my childhood outings to the fair. You can check out Shabby Miss Jenn’s store here and read more about Jenna Beam on her blog here.

January 2014 Premier Top Pick

The extra January videos by Linda Sattgast really sparked everybody’s creativity this month. There were beautiful garlands, double-duty elements, and Daily Life Template pages. Many of you combined several tutorials beautifully, creating some wonderful eye-candy for us all to enjoy. This month’s Top Pick goes to BeckiB who created a stunning garland and wrapped it beautifully around a snow globe. She also made some lovely snowflake overlays that complemented her page perfectly. Congratulations BeckiB.

    Great “Top Picks”! From a sumptuous page that highlights a good looking recipe, to a really cool dreamcatcher and very nice job on Double Duty elements used as edging for photos and papers. Congratulations everyone!
