and the winner is...


Congratulations, Kaitlyn!!

We just thought that Kaitlyn's page was all around awesome...she used a beautiful jumbo photo as well as a jumbo flower and jumbo letters for her all just worked so well together! And the journaling was even a jumbo aspect 'cause she managed to get alot said on her layout...very sweet. (If you haven't read her journaling yet, make sure you do!!) So, Kaitlyn, email us at the and we'll fill you in on how you can get your big wood letter fom Janna. Congrats again!! And another big thank you to Janna for being our first ever rock!!

Honestly ladies...this has been an awesome month. Just take a look at how great the Goodie Gallery is lookin'...pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! Hehe!! Thanks to all of you who submitted layouts, and who have been submitting every month so far. Kim and I sat on the phone last night going thru each and every submission...we honestly didn't know how to choose! ( I have to admit, this is harder than I thought it would be to pick only 1 winner each month.) You are all amazing...thanks again for supporting us!!

Remember to come by next Monday when Kim will be issuing our 4th much fun!

Have a great week everyone!!!

Talia and Kim:)

happy monday!!

I think this month is going by waaaaayyyyy too quickly. Is anyone else feeling like that?? I'm sure you all had a busy weekend with Father's Day and everything else...but hopefully you got some scrappin' done! Hehe!!

For today's inspiration, Kim has made the CUTEST set of "happy" cards, all with "jumbo" elements!

"Happy Cards" by Kim Loewen

I love everything about these cards from the colors to the accents to the theme...don't they make you happy just lookin' at them? Notice how Kim used the jumbo Heidi Swapp photo corners and ghost shapes, as well as jumbo brads and chipboard much fun!! Using elements like these on a smaller project, like cards, makes them look even BIGGER than they already are. Thanks for inspiring us, Kim!!

The Goodie Gallery is looking awesome...make sure you check it out, we've had lots of submissions over the weekend. You guys are so great!! And remember to support everyone by commenting in the "comments" section right underneath the post! And just a don't have to be "blogger" user to make comments here OR in the Goodie Gallery. Just click on the "comments" right underneath each post and you can post a message "anonymously". We want to hear what everyone has to say...from the challenges, to the sneak peeks to the layouts in the gallery...YOU all are what makes this blog happen!! So thank you for being so great so far. Like Kim and I always say, we have lots of fun ideas and things in store for the future!!

So remember, you have one more week to get a layout to us for the "Go Jumbo!" challenge...set aside an hour for yourself this week to get some much needed "alone" time and scrap to your hearts all deserve it! Check back next Monday to see who the winner will be for the "Go Jumbo!" challenge!!!

*sneak peek*!

Monday again! Are you ready for this month's "sneak peek"???? For this month's "go jumbo" challenge, the winner will receive a big, jumbo wood letter, by our first ever sponsor, Letters By Janna!!!

How awesome is that? If you've never heard of Letters by Janna before, go and check her out! The winner will be able to choose any letter in any font, up to 24" in size. So stinkin' cool. Kim and I already have them all over our houses and while we've just painted ours, the possibilities really are can paint them, sand them, decoupage them, cover them with patterned paper, pictures and accents...whatever! So get working on your "jumbo" layouts and maybe you will be the lucky one that wins a "jumbo" letter!!

As always, make sure you email us a link or an image of your layout to We already have a few submissions in the Goodie Gallery, so make you check them out. We also want to encourage all of you to comment on eachother's work in the gallery if you see something you love. Because we post your name with your layout, in the comments section under all the page submissions you can just call the person out that you're wanting to praise...for example..."Hey, your page!!" Simple as that...we just thought it would be cool to have a fun group of friends here at the Goodie Box where we do nothing but have fun and support eachother...everyone's creations are unique, beautiful and fun and we want everyone to feel that!

So have an awesome Monday and we hope to see more "jumbo's" in our inbox!!

:)Talia and Kim

challenge #3: go jumbo!

Wow! Challenge #3 already....where does the time go? We've been having so much fun here at the Goodie Box and want to thank all of you who have been playing along so far. You ALL rock! And remember, the more the merrier, so spread the word and get your friends to join in!

So let's get to it again...

Our third challenge is, "Go Jumbo!"

With all of the jumbo and over-sized scrapbooking products on the market lately, we couldn't help but make them a challenge. So this month we want you do to a layout with a "jumbo" element somewhere on your page. It can be a picture, a title, a word, an accent,'s up to you. Just make it BIG! And don't limit yourself to just one large element...add 2 or 3 or 4 if you're up to it!

Here are our layouts for this month's challenge:

"Be" by Talia Audenart
I used a few jumbo elements on my layout...the big letters for the word "be", the large flowers, large brads and the XL photo corners! Oh, and this was a jumbo page for me 'cause I did a 12 x 12...I haven't scrapped this size in a long time!!

"We Adore You" by Kim Loewen
On Kim's layout she used the XL photo corners and large chipboard letters as well as an over-sized playing card as her main accent...I love how it stands out. So cute!!

Now, just to refresh your memories...

Each participant can submit up to 2 layouts/challenge. Once you've finished your layout, email us a picture or link to along with your first and last name so we can post it in The Goodie Gallery. We love seeing everyone's work!

The deadline for the "Go Jumbo" challenge will be Sunday, June 24th and we will announce the winner on Monday, June 25th. This month's winner will NOT be us!

Make sure you check back often to see everyone's layouts for this challenge and don't forget to come back next Monday when we reveal what's in this month's Goodie stinkin' fun!

Let us know what you think of the challenge and have fun with your "jumbo" scrappin'. See ya next week!

:) Kim and Talia
