First Sale Scrapbook Winners

It’s time to announce the winner of the last of the twelve First Sale Scrapbooks I gave away this year. All those who left a comment on a post through December 22nd were entered in the drawing. Since I have no more guests for 2009, I held the drawing early.

.

Congrats, Ladies! If you haven’t sold yet, I hope you’re soon filling the pages of your album.

Following are the covers of the five different 8×8 or 8-1/2 x8-1/2 inch scrapbooks. Each album has the same 20 pages, but I chose different color themes to correspond to the covers.

Following are sample pages. I used pages from each of the albums to give an idea of the various color schemes I used. Each album has all the pages shown, although the colors vary according to the different themes.

Each of the two-page spreads is designed so a standard 4×6 inch photograph fits on the mat on the left-hand page. The right hand page has room for you to journal about that particular aspect of your First Sale. You can either print out your journaling and adhere it using double-sided adhesive tabs, or you can write directly on the page with a permanent black scrapbooking pen.

The tabs and pens can be found in any scrapbooking department.

If the aspects of your First Sale happen in an order other than the one shown, you can just slip the pages out of the top-loading sheet protectors and rearrange them.

    Ahhh, thanks. THIS IS GREAT!!!!!

  2. Anne Barton says:

    Keli, these are beautiful!!! I can’t decide which one I like best. Probably Hot Spots. But the Spring Stripes is awfully cute too. Although, the Gold Threads and Textured Olive are really classic. And the Creamy Buttons is totally elegant. Impossible to pick a favorite!

    They are ALL fabulous. What a thoughtful, original idea. 🙂

  3. Tina Dee says:

    I love them all, but I think my fav is Creamy Buttons. They are beautiful, Keli!

  4. That’s a terrific idea! They’re adorable.

    I’d love to be entered in the drawing and also considered for a debut author interview.
    I had 2 books come out on May 22–Summer Lovin’ (The Wild Rose Press) & Rihanna (People in the News) from Lucent.

    I’m enjoying the interviews.

  9. Loved reading the interview with Jodi Hedlund where I’ve also just discovered your First Sale scrapbooks. What a great gift to your readers! I couldn’t imagine ever forgetting the details of my first sale but having such a beautiful scrapbook to showcase it would be extra special.

    Keli,

    Your scrapbooks are lovely, and I’d love to have one. But I really have my fingers crossed that you’ll have one of your own very soon.
