RAK for Val C. Designs

Val has graciously agreed to let me have a coupon to give away while she is on vacation/holiday!  Everyone gets to have a good time.  The coupon is good for $3.00 for her store at ZZS!  So what do you have to do to be in the running- go to her store and come back and comment on what kit of Val’s you love the most!  Not sure, then check out the creative team gallery here.  I was so excited when Val offered me a position on her CT.  Here are some of my favorite layouts using her kits.

This layout uses Val’s Be Inspired White Ground, Be Inspired Black Ground kits.

This memorial page for my Aunt Marion uses Val’s Be Inspired Memory kit

So sorry this is so small, but my computer died this spring.  Be Inspired Purest was used for this double page layout.

Love scrapping my children, even if it is years later!  Be Creative – Artbox used here

This was inspired by Val’s Back to Life kit

Val’s Together Bundle and add on were used for this layout.

Dash off to Val’s store to see what kit you would love to add to your stash and leave me a comment.  This RAK will close on July 14th at 12pm EST. Before I leave for work on the 15th, Mr. Random will chose a winner. Can’t wait to see what kit’s inspire you!

ValC.  Designs hit the nail on the head with this kit!  I am so ready for spring.  Having to deal with my basement flooding has sent me looking for signs of spring!

Here is her great new kit- out today at  ZigZagScrap and on sale!

Here are two layouts I made using this wonderful kit!

These beautiful spring blooms were placed in my room when I visited my dear friend, Anna!  She is the most thoughtful hostess!

I love that my niece, Erika shares her photos with me.  Such joy and fun in her daughters face- just enjoying life!  We should all be like children and remember the joy of living.

I have been on Maya’s team since she started designing. She has an amazing range of styles.  Here is the most recent layout I did as an RAK for a friend.

I used her newest kit called Primavera

to make this layout.  It is a wonderful spring kit- those of us in the northern hemisphere  could all use a little spring about now!

My favorite layout so far in 2011, used many of her kits and is titled 2011!
