The Power of YOUth Collaboration Kit

Phew!  We finally got a break from that oppressive heat wave and now we can actually enjoy some summertime fun outside again.  I don’t know about where you live but here in Michigan, just about every county around us is well into their county fair activities and that means plenty of 4-H activities.  Since I grew up in a rural area, I remember as a kid going to the fair every summer and walking through all the animal barns and visiting all the other 4-H exhibits, which was a big part of our county fair. 

I recently had an opportunity to work with a fellow designer at GingerScraps, Rachel a/k/a Pretty In Green on a collaboration kit. As we were brain storming for idea, she came up with a 4-H themed kit and even though it was a bit out of my comfort zone, I decided it would be a fun challenge so The Power Of YOUth was born.

The kit itself contains 29 papers and 50 elements and was a bit of a challenge  because we had to be careful not to use their federal protected logo or the words 4-H or4-H Club but I think we did a great job of getting the theme across without using those items/terms.



I also have a set of decorated wordart and an alpha to go with the kit.



And Rachel has an awesome set of painted cardstock and a set of layout templates.



And if you love the entire collection, we’ve bundled it all up to save you a bunch of money.  You get all 5 products for only $7.50!


One of my creative team members, Marlyn created this cute quick page using the kit.  Thank you, Marlyn!

I’m sponsoring Scrapping Survivor again this year and I’m so excited to watch it all unfold again this year.  This is the third year of the competition and the winner last year was none other than my collaboration partner, Rachel a/k/a Pretty In Green!  She won a boat load of prizes plus a spot on the GingerScraps Creative Team and it was shortly after this that she was invited to be a designer.  She has come a long way in only year and has blossomed into a talented designer.  Do you have what it takes to outlast, outcrop and outscrap?  I’d love to see you signup and get in on all the fun.  Just click on the ad to visit the forum.  Don’t be shy!  There are a lot of newcomers this year so you won’t be alone.


That’s all I have for now.  I have 3 new items coming out for the September GingerScraps Buffet and a new kit in the works that I’m really excited about.

Have a great week!
