*******Contest is now over. Please stay tuned for WINNER! Thank you!*******
Oh how I love that song! But that's not quite the point of this post, I promise! What I did promise was a giveaway and that's just what I'm gonna do! And here's how...
A while back, the girls at Green Tangerine wrote me to ask if I'd help them promote their brand new kit club. I had met them a little over a year ago at CHA and had commented on their stunning logo for their store. Their t-shirts definitely were noticeable and too adorable. So of course I told them I'd be happy to play along and share a bit of Green Tangerine with all of you.
To get their club started off on the right foot, they are having huge blog party that started May 8th and will continue through July 1st! That's almost two months of partying and over $1000 worth of free scrapbooking products that they are giving away!! And every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during that time brings you two more new chances of playing along and winning! How's that for a kick-off?!!
And as you've probably already guessed, tonight is MY turn to host the blog party and share with you the fun things I made with their incredible kit! And trust me, I'm not just saying that. This kit was so up my alley, filled with gorgeous bright colors, 2 sheets of SEVERAL colors of cardstock, coordinating brads and embellies, two full alphabet sets and more!
This first layout is of Turner and Carson and our recent face-painting encounter at the zoo! These papers were just perfect for my brightly colored tigers. (and check out that embellishment in the lower left - that's a custom embellishment done by the girl's at Green Tangerine. Fun, isn't it?!
For this next one I was trying to channel my inner Kelli (Crowe, that is!). I love Kelli's use of circle punches of different sizes onto neutral cardstock. I'm a bit too reserved to really do the magic she does, but I had fun just the same! This is Carson on his 100th day of school (could you tell?)! Dig those rad glasses, man!
And finally, here's a fun little card featuring October Afternoon's little monsters. I have to admit it started as a "thank you" for teacher's appreciation week and then even mother's day related. Appropriate, no? ;)
Ok, so now's where YOU come in...simply leave me a comment telling me what your favorite part or technique of my projects are and you are entered to win a kit of your very own! And if you visit the girls at Green Tangerine on their blog, you'll have even one more chance to win! But it's going to be a quick one - you must leave your comment by 5:00 pm EASTERN TOMORROW, MAY 19th to be included in my drawing. The winner will be announced tomorrow night in another post. Good luck and have fun!
Oh my goodness Kelly!!

I think I missed out, but I wanted to tell you anyway that I love how you are able to combine so many patterned papers and make it look so effortless...I wish I had an ounce of your talent!
Thanx for the heads up on this new kit club. Off to check it out.
I'm loving the window in your card showing one of the 'little monsters'. LOL. Too cute!

I love the card. May scraplift and do a card for my grandkids to give to their mom or dad
I didn't know they were doing kits...I'm gonna have to check them out!
Love all your projects, but that little moster peeking through the hole in the card is ADORABLE!! -Cute card!
Oh Kelly, I love ALL of your LO's you've done. I can always spot them anywhere! These, I love all the circles on all of them.. the embellies in the corners of the tiger LO, all the circles for the 100th day of school (nice touch!) and the monster peaking out (he is too cute!). These did look like they were lots of fun to make. The colors are wonderful!! Great job!!
I love your use of circles on these. It brings a great but simple element into play. I especially like the cut out on the card that reveals to the inner design. Very cute!
Oh, I love the designs and most of all, the cute monsters! The boys are digging this as much as I am :-). What a great giveaway!
This kit looks awesome!! I love what you did with the title on the first layout! The two different fonts really makes it "POP"! :)
I adore the circles on the tan cardstock. That is right up my alley also. Especially with the black edging.
Love the colors in this kit.
I just LOVE the monster card ~ that is too cute! I also love how you included so many bigger sized pictures on the tiger layout but it doesn't look too busy ~ just looks great!
I loved the monster card. It was a really creative way to use those creatures! I'm going to have to lift the circle punchout and use it with characters peeking through.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the link to Green Tangerine! All of your projects are awesome of course -- but my favorite part would be all the circles on the 100 days of school layout. It makes such a dramatic POP to the page.
Those LOs are adorable (as usual). I love how you cut the circle out of the front of the card to show the monster through it. That is a really cute idea.
Absolutely love the little monsters card and the beautiful colors! And of course your layouts are always gorgeous Kelly!
totally love your little monsters card. you are very clever. thanks for the PE tips too!
WOW! Amazing layouts Kelly! Love them all!
OMG ... I just love those cute wee monsters!!
O.M.GOODNESS!!! I absolutely adore both LO's, but something that really stood out in the "roar paint" LO was how you used all of the wonderful, bright colors on both sides and pulled it together with the simply lines to form some-what of a box...I just love me some "quirky waves" AND "straight lines" all wrapped up together :) Thanks for the fun giveaway and the AWESOME LINK!!!
I love your layouts but the monster card is adorable,so clever, it just pops out at you...
Love the card with the monsters and all the color combination, it looks fantastic!
Love the 'peek-a-boo' feature on the Thank You Monster card..very cute!
I too, love your super cute card with the Monster popping through the circle...very fun! Love your work!
What an amazing kit! I love the layouts you made with them, but the window technique on the card is fabulous. And it's such a clever card :)
Wow, what a great kit! I just love the fun bright colours!! My favourite thing of yours is your first layout. I just love that label shape at the moment and keep seeing it crop up again and again!
I love that you used so many photos on your two page layout! all your projects look great!
WOW! I just ran over and looked at their website, I LOVE the colors and all the addon's in each months kits. This may become another of my favorites. Kit clubs are so addicting lol :)
Gorgeous work Kelly, I love the fun colors, and your card is so cute, I love how the peek through window ties in with the opened card, and you're right, it can work for both themes.
Great layouts and card. My favorite part would be your layering. I struggle with this aspect of my scrapbooking but I am getting a little better at it.
I really liked both of your page layouts; I especially liked all the circles you used. The dots really work on the 100 days of school page.
I love all of the bright colours in this kit - beautiful layouts!
I love that you used so many pictures on the first layout - it is hard to find good ideas for those of us who take lots of pictures and can't bear to NOT use them :)
Wow, what a great blog giveaway!! I am really excited!
I love your circle punch technique on the 100 days of school layout! It is just so bright and colorful, and it screams school fun! Great layouts and card!
LOVE your work as always :) but I have to say that the 100-day LO is so bright and funky...you rawked that one! REALLY love the face-painting one too...those pics are the BEST!
Fun giveaway - you SO rawk too! :)
I love the peek-a-boo window and word bubble on the card and the color combination on the tiger page! The kit materials are so fun & colorful! Great job on the samples!
i love those painted faces! thanks for the chance to win the kit!
I loe how the little monster's face is peeking through the window on the card. Precious.
Your card is awesome!!!
Love the little monsters!
My favorite is the roar layout. There is something about the colors in the pictures and the colors in the papers and embellishments that is so striking.
Hi Kelly Loving those bright colours and funky looking alien/monsters. Thnkas for the chance to win
Your projects are so adorable! I can see why- their kits are really awesome. Thanks for sharing the cool link and the chance to win!
I love seeing layouts with bright, bright colors where the photos still stand out.
Glad to know about GTKC...fun!
I *LOVE* the bright colors paired with kraft cardstock. I can't wait to check out Green Tangerine. Thanks for the link and the chance to win!
Love all three layouts. The monsters are a great addition to this kit. The look great with all the bright colors.
Everything is great. Having three children that can be monsters though makes me love the card the best.
oh my goodness, what an awesome lo for the 100 day of school:)
my dd celebrated her 100th day of kinder last year...need to get on that LOL
So much cute stuff! My favorite is the first layout with the face painting. I love the orange paper with the dots. I also like the wave cut to the paper.
I also love Green Tangerine. My brother got married last June (and the live in Rocklin) and we got our nails done right next door to GT. I knew weeks before we went that it was next door to the nail place, and I was so excited to go shopping. As soon as my nails were dry enough I headed right over to the GT. The store is BEAUTIFUL and HUGE. I was so jealous that we didn't have anything that nice and big where I live. So I agree...I love them too.
I can't say that there is just one thing that I like about your stuff...because I honestly love it all. I love all your work and layouts. I am always inspired greatly by your work. It is amazing.
Have a great day.
Love all the circles on the 100 Days layout! So cute!
I just love your window card! So adorable and I love it when there's a little surprise waiting inside! Gorgeous!
Oh I love all your projects... those circles on the 100 days layout really look inspired... I might just have to do that myself too!!!
I love the LO with the punched out circles. So fun!
I love these los!they are very colorful and my weakness are just vibrant colors! I am so impressed by the way you use your punches and how those bright colored circles added texture in your lo.Just stunning darl!
I looooooove bright colors, but I gotta say the little monsters are my favorite...
What fun patterned paper! Just perfect for the kids pages. I'm always looking for bright, cheery, and fun paper for my 3 monsters too! Your little monsters card is so cute and really POPS out at you! I'm off to check out the blog and the whole kit. Thanks!
I love the combo of the patterned papers and the circle accents in the Roar paint layout. These are so cute. Love bright colors.
I love the peek-a-boo window on your card! So darn cute.
I love all the bright colors and the circles, I seem to have a thing for circles now. The card is adorable, I will be looking for this line.
Have a great day!
I love your 2 page lo. You do those so well! I also love all the bright colours. TFS!
You are right, that logo is really cool!!
My favourite of your projects is your card, it's so cute and fun!!
Hi Kelly! here a warm hello from The Netherlands! I just found out about your blog, but you just made gorgeous things! A real inspiration....thanks!
About the blogcandy..I never ever ever win [not just that lucky I guess :(] but hey, I just give it a shot! For now, a big dutch hug and I will for sure hop on by again..
Sounds like a FUN place and a great kit club! Love seeing your work like always!
your layouts rock! They always do!
The kit looks great. It's simple but i really like how you used 2 different sized circles with inked edges as a little embellie.(Upper left corner of the 100 days LO) Sometimes I just don't have what I'm looking for in my stash and I'd like to try that. Yes, I know it's probably been done by everyone else! LOL.
Loved the monster peeking through the card - that was my favourite but I never make cards!
i love your three little monsters and the peek-a-boo card! let me know when the shelbyville class is scheduled! and make sure that ALL gazillion of stacy's posts aren't entered in your drawing- ha!
wow! I love how you played up the bright colors - and with the kraft that just makes it all pop so much more!
This is the tiniest things, but I love it because I never think to do this: the little dotted rectangle framing all your pix. The layout would be incomplete without it, yet I don't think I could have thought of it. Question: how does the face paint 2pg LO look in a book? I could see that the seam has photos overlapping it and I'm curious how your LOs look in a book. DO you put them in a book?
I love what you did with this kit! The card is super cute!
I love your little card w/ the cut out monsters. That is one of my favorite pps ever.
I really like the scalloped edge around the Monsters card window. I am using scallops a lot in my pages and cards lately - And the stitched Ribbon edge.
I especially like the text on the facepainting page, made on paper lines!
lovely bright pages!
I love two page designs, they make me happy. I also love the awesome circles in different sizes, so inspiring!! =) Thanks for the opportunity to win!
This looks like an awesome kit! I love all of the way fun colors and the monsters are just too much fun! I'm on my way over to check them out!
I like the dinosaur poking out from the lace circle.
Looks like a great kit!! I love the bright colors, your use of lines around edges and that little monsters card...perfect for a mom!! ;) Thanks for the chance to win!
I love everything that you've done with this kit. I loooove all the circles for the 100th day! too awesome. The little monsters are so stinking cute, especially with the little window.
you have a true talent and so wish I had some of your mad creativity! You combine so many things and make it look like it's so stinking easy! AWESOME JOB Kelly!
I'm a white/kraft background kind of girl so I'm loving the bright colors you paired with the neutral background! Love the circles, too...I did a layout like that awhile back and it turned out really nice. Cute card, too. Shoot, it's all nice! :)
I love all the different ways that you use circles! I love to use circles on my layouts, it makes things so fun!
I love the colors...definitely the bright vibrant colors! Very nice layouts.
I love the punched out window on the card where you can see the monsters through it, that is so cute, well, all the stuff is cute!
I have been a fan of yours since I first saw your work at scrapbook.com! Your layouts are so fun and fresh, and that little monster card is ADORABLE!!! I am totally digging those bright colors, and I WILL be checking out that kit club. I totally love all the circles...they add such a fun feel!
Well Miss Kelly you make it very hard to pick just one thing but I am a huge fan of all the touches you do with black pen, so I have to say I'm diggin' all those circles with black outlines inside and out!
Favorite technique? Can your use of Lime Rickey be a "technique"? I'm so in love with this paper. It's so much fun! My favorite technique, though, is the cut out circle that the little orange monster is hiding behind. Too cute!
Kelly, before I even got to the part about the contest, I knew I had to leave a comment for you. I love, Love, LOVE your first layout, in particular. I love the green, aqua and orange, I love what you did with the diecuts (using only parts), I love the patterns, I love the layout and that you fit so many photos. I just love it. In to my inspiration folder it goes -- THANKS!
Love the colors in this kit!!! I have to say my fav technique that you used is the window in your card. Too cute!
I love your photography. I am always looking at other people's work in order to improve my own photos.
Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful kit.
This might be so basic but I just love the compostion of the "roar" paint layout. It is clean adn striking. Just loe it - the colors so work too of course. :) thanks for sharing
I love your work and this kit is so me as I have 2 boys, I sure hope my LSS gets it in :) I love the double pages and I saved them in my file of fav layouts :) I've always been a big fan of yours :)
I love love love what you did with this kit! :)
Your LOs are great (as usual!) You have a knack for adding color without overwhelming your photos. I really like the penwork in your 100 day LO, it makes the circles pop (but it in perfect balance with the awesome picture.) I totally love your card (and I have those stamps!!!) Thank you for the major inspiration! Have a great day!
You did such an amazing job with their kit Kelly! I'm going to have to go check them out. The tiger layout was my favorite!! So cute!
Kelly ~ these pages are fabulous!!!
You are one super amazing talented girl :)
I love your combination of bright patterns ~ they work so well together & with your pictures!
And the design of each of these two-page LOs are perfect ~ they stand out so much ~ so bright & yummy :)
I especially love the roar title & your choice of patterns for those circles with your picture!!
Great job :)
Love all the bright colors of your LO's. I love the way you have everything situated on your first LO. And all the cirlces punched out looks cool. Why I haven't done that is beyond me. Would be cute with my DGS at Sea World. And the window for the card with the dinosaur showing through is super cute.
I Scrap So All Moments Are Remembered!
Kelly - I love the little monsters card! How perfect for Mother's Day! And your LOs are awesome!
I love the monsters card and how you punched a hole in the front with a monster peeking through. Love everything about this card and when you open it there are 2 more monsters. I think that card would be good for any occasion. Love it..
Jeannie in Florida
Oh my goodness- that kit looks WONDERFUL! I love all the circles you used- in the "100 Days" layout!!
I love the little monster peeking thru the front of the card.
i love the window in your OA Night Light card!
Fabulous layouts and cards! This kit looks like so much fun I'm going to have to go check it out! I LOVE all the circles you used in all your projects! Also love how you can use so many patterned papers on one layout or card!
Love the stitching (pen I think) and that monster card is too cute!
Amazing layouts! I love how you attached the tab on the 100 day page with the zigzag stitcheing....very cute!
I love the monsters peeking thru the window...so cute!
I love how fun and bright your projects are...they are so fun to look at! Would love to win the giveaway...thanks for the chance!
Love the look of all those punched circles, a good use for all those little scraps that can add so much fun color!
Beautiful work as always, Kelly. I love your use of circles and your pen work. I am going to have to check out this new club!
What a great kit! I really like your roar page the colors are wonderful. Tech-wise I love how you have the circle cut-out in the card!
I really love how you used your circle punches on every project. They are something that I often overlook in my projects, but know that the extra time and effort of digging them out will really pay off just like you've shown us here.
Great work with the kit. Thanks for sharing the news with us!
Love that tricky scallop circle - might just have to borrow that idea!
I LOVE the card from the three little monsters. That is my favorite of the things you made. But I also wanted to say that you did a great job channeling Kelli Crowe. I love that page too!
I too love the monster card! How adorable! but also I swear you must have dressed up your children to match! hehehehe Loving the outlines and all those circles!
Jenn in Vancouver
I love the kit colors and your stitching. I can't help noticing that stitching is on all my favorite layouts lately. I love the texture it adds. I'm trying to figure out the best way to get into it myself.
Totally love the circles! Such a great way to use up scraps and make a wonderful page or card that really pops! I need to remember to put this to good use! Thanks for sharing!
I love the colors! The card is adorable and I'm excited about a new kit club :)
I'm so happy you're doing a Green Tangerines giveaway. Green Tangerines is my local scrapbook store and I spend way too much time there. I highly recommend this store if you are ever in the area!
I love those cirlces, what a fun idea.
I love the stiching detailing...something that I am trying to incorporate in my scrapbooking.
Oh love what you did! So bright and cheery.
I love love love those circles!! So cute. Great colors. Yum!!
Love the peek-a-boo monster! So appropriate :)
Love the colors and that card is just adorable! Off to check out the kit!
I LOVE the monsters card! Absolutely adorable!
Love this store! And your layouts, as always are inspirational! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies! ~Susan B.
Love all the layouts but especially love the technique on the 100th day of school - those circles are way too cute and make the page really pop!
Kelly thank you so much for sharing your work. i just love you layouts, especially the one you did for 100 days of school.
I just LOVE the scrapbook pages about the face painting! The layout, the papers and embellishments and the amazing photography -- all too cute!
Great great layouts. I always love your use of colour and your fresh and fun style. I really love that you have boys to scrapbook, it's always difficult to find great boy layouts. Thanks for that.
Have a great day,
Love the LO's. I must say that I REALLY love that blue checkered paper on the first one. and the monsters are adorable!!!
favorite technique is punching out the circle and putting a scalloped punch out "flower" around it to make a window for your card!!
I love your use of color! The monster looking out of the window is so cute! Thanks for sharing your work. I am so glad to know about the kit club.
Love your "Tigers" layout and the card. The colored stripes look great along the edges of the blue grid paper and the "stitching" really brightens it up.
I love everything you do, especially all those details and use of colours. I'm addicted to BG and you give me such an inspiration to use their products. Keep up the good work!
I LOVE all the bright gorgeous colors and I love the circles on your school layout!
Wow, love those fun bright colors! I would have to say that I am so into those circles right now, think I want to do a LO just like yours!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
Oh yeah, pick me to win cause I never win anything!!!
love the layouts !!!!
I love the punched circles against the kraft cardstock! What a great idea! Whenever I am in Sacramento, I always make a drive to Green Tangerines. It is an amazing scrapbook store, so I am sure their kits are great!
You are one talented mama. Love how you focus is always your kids picture and NOT the embellishments which can be as simple as the ones on these pages but they always manage to strike a punch!
Your are so talented...I love the layouts and the card, but the little window on the card is super super cute. I am going ot have ot try that. Thanks for a chance at a wonderful kit...
Wow I love all these bright colors!I think I'm going to have to break out my circle punches now, and the Thank you card from the "monsters" - how perfect a use of the OA goodies! Thanks for highlighting green tangerine - off to check them out! :)
Could that "roar paint" LO be any better?!?! I am so inspired! Loved the brackets and must copy that look soon. Lovely, lovely product! And you did channel some good Kelli Crowe with your circles!
I love the layouts. I love how you created the title in "roar paint."
I am very impressed on your layouts. The creativity is awesome and you could can tell you have put your heart into your designs:)
I love EVERYTHING about your style but on this stuff I would have to say I LOVE how you "framed" around the cluster of pictures on the two pager. It really completes the layout. Your layout would still be great without it but it gives the layout that extra oomphf (sp?)most people, including me, just don't think of. That's what makes you awesome!!
WOW! Your layouts are so colorful and fun. I especially love the card, and how the monster is looking through the window. It's just too cute!
I love the cutout with the cute monster peeking out.
I LOVE all of the projects, but especially the ROAR page. It's super fun and I love to see multi-photo pages.
Favorite part of your projects? Too hard to choose! But, if I have to, I'll say the stunning design of the 2 pager, from the color placement to the unique title :D
I love your work! You intertwine patterned paper and bold colors and complement the pics (GORGEOUS PICS!!!) with such ease! You're an inspiration!
Fabulous pages!!! and what a stinkin' cute card?!? Hello, girlfriend?!? Awesomeness. What I totally love about your pages is how you make your layouts just "POP" with your color choices that go so perfect with your pictures. You just know how to add that extra to make your pages so colorful. love that!
I love the little window you created on the little monsters card. That was really cute. So which came first the monsters or the cut-out? I love your photography as well. Great blog!
Your pages are FABULOUS! But my favorite is the little window in the card with the monster peeking out!! How completely appropriate for mother's day!! :D
Great projects. I love the colours, especially how they "pop" against the neutral Kraft background in the 2nd LO and the card. Thanks for sharing, and for the chance to win.
I love the 100 days layout. What a clever idea! The birght colors are great!
My friends rave about this store too. I'm going to have to make a road trip. Love what you did.
I love the card! Your technique to cut out the window and have the monster's head show through is great!
Cant wait to try this one!
Your photography is simply amazing! I really love your layouts and the supercharged use of color and pattern - you really make it look effortless (it's not for me! :D). Really dig the use of the circles that mimic your son's 100's day hat - super cute!
Favorite for me by far is your use of various circle punches of different patterned paper. I have to try that! Great job. :)
love the monster card...
Love this! I love the circle cut out of the card to reveal a picture of inside....so cool. I am keeping my fingers crossed!
WOW!! Awesome projects!! Love the bright colors in this kit! I'd have to say my favorite part(s) of your projects would have to be the sketch you used for the first one -I love multi-photo, two page layouts and also the window you made for the card! Though I must say I also LOVE the bright colors on the kraft in the secod layout. Yummy! Thanks for sharing and also for the chance to win! :)
ooooo yummy! I would love to win that!!
such great colors.
My favorite things are the "roar paint" title, and the peek-a-boo monster card. . .very cool!
no doubt about it - your use of color is always inspiring!!
Love the circles all over the 100 days layout!!
I think this kit was totally made to order for you!! The colors that you love and how perfectly your photos work!!! Great job...as always - love all your creations!!
OMGosh, you know I love everything you do but the page w/ the face paint absolutely made me gasp. I just LOVE the popp'age of the photos with those papers. My new fave Kelly page :)
Wow those monster cards are cute...almost as cute as the layout! Love them all! :) The peekaboo is a great element on the card!
