This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!
After my great & amazing fortune in the last carnival, I decided it would only be appropriate Bloggy Karma to do multiple giveaways here myself this time. So go ahead – bookmark me and come back over the next few days so you won’t miss anything! Each giveaway is something that I think tells a little bit about me, or something I really love. So the little bonus is that you get to know dear old Fizzy just a little bit better!
First up? Here’s a tidbit for you: I started obsessively taking pictures in 8th grade, and then took a “real” photography class in high school. Originally, I scrapped on 8.5×11 papers that I slid into school-report-style page protectors. *giggle* I’ve come a long way, baby! I have enormous, stuffed-full albums from high school through college. Along the way, I switched to using Creative Memories albums, and right now I’m in the process of retroactively re-scrapping my old albums. As any busy mom can tell you, it’s a lot harder to find the time & space for this hobby now that a toddler’s around… but it’s also more important to me than ever to have our photos and stories documented for Smooch, and it’s also become one way I de-stress when I just need some quiet time all to myself. I just can’t shake this idea that it’s incredibly important for me to keep our family history, because if something ever happened to me or my husband I’d want our children to know as much about us as possible. (I know, that sounds a little morbid, but it actually makes me feel happy when I think about it, not morose or depressed.)
Which brings me to my first giveaway – a great little package of scrapbooking goodies. I’ll be honest, these are things that I’ve had around for a while and don’t find myself using. I just recently started a small business with these products, and I am SO in love with CM stuff that these little things have fallen by the wayside. If you’re not as exclusively minded, though, you’ll love it!
A package of loose paper with titles & slogans, “LMNOP” – a book of decorative lettering, two templates (one shapes, one lines for journaling), a set of looseleaf layout and album idea pages, “99 Best Secrets for Scrapbook Success” – a book of scrapbook tips & tricks, and five packages of spring embellishments (flowers, butterflies, etc).
Disclaimer: I may actually add a few things to this package before it goes out in the mail to you, if I find anything else in my craft room between now and then!
This giveaway is open to anyone with a US mailing address. Just leave a comment on this post telling me either: the motivation behind your love for scrapbooking, OR describe an album you are working on or have completed, OR one reason you think scrapbooking’s not for you. Make sure to enter your email address in the little box (it will NOT appear on my blog; I will not put you on any mailing lists, I swear!) so I can get in touch with you if you win! I’ll use a random number generator to draw a winning comment on Monday, April 28th, and post the winners here after emailing them.
Happy Carnival-ing, and I hope to see you again!
