Happy Holidays Giveaway

Hello Friends!  How about some blog candy?  I’m so excited about this one!  I was asked to submit for a book by CardMaker and I just received my publishers copies.  It’s a fantastic Special Edition and isn’t even out on Newstands yet.  

It’s FULL of Holiday ideas including packaging items, gift card holders, and even special recipes set for Christmas giving!  I have 4 pieces in the book and now I’m sharing it with you!  




Here’s one of my projects that I’m really proud of above.....it features A Day for Daisies set called A Sign I Give.  


SO...now its up to you.  I’m giving one copy of the book away to any reader.  All you have to do is answer this question:

What features do you really appreciate and look for on your favourite paper crafting blogs?  


***Please leave your email address so I can contact you if you’re a winner.  

I’ll be picking a random winner and posting it next Saturday September 6th.  Good luck!

A HUGE congrats on having four of yoru projects in there!! Whoot whoot for Canada LOL! I am a sketch junkie so if there is a sketch or multiples in a magazine I am one happy lady. Instructions are also helpful, especially if it is not something you have done before.

I really like it when they provide the product name - so often I will see a stamp that I would like but don't know what company it came from. I also like blogs where the work spaces and storage systems are shared - only a crafter can understand the difficulties in creating a productive work space. thanks for providing an opportunity to win.

Awesome blog candy, thank you for the chance to win, Christine.
I like when they give you a list of supplies used in the cards, sometimes I see a beautiful embossing folder or an image but the name for this things is not given. I also love to see new techniques and interesting folding instructions, this is very helpful and of course, I love it when there is fabulous blog candy to win. :)

I love it when bloggers show pictures (ideas) for the various stamp companies. It is great to have a tutorial when it is something more complicated (ie boxes or gift holders)

Congratulations on getting your projects printed in my favourite mag.

Lovely project. I like to know what materials were used, especially when dies are used so I do not have to dig them all out to see which one was used, not that I have all of them. :) Cheers. Thanks for a chance to win.

First, your blog is the one I go to first because you are so creative and are really good about sharing techniques, supplies used, etc. I have become addicted to Copics. I like seeing a list of colors used in projects as well as the stamp name and company that was used. I love video tutorials for demonstrating new techniques. Keep the projects coming and thanks for sharing! Debbie @ dbelluom@Comcast.net
