Basic Grey + Hero Arts Giveaway!

Hey, there.

A few people asked me about the Sketchbook 3 online class that Kelly Purkey is doing. There are 50 sketches! I am one of the many guest designers, along with Ali EdwardsElizabeth KartchnerKristina Werner, Nichol Magouirk, and more. The fun thing? I will be sharing a card idea to go with each of the scrapbook ideas. LOVE this. Kelly’s classes are very popular. I highly recommend checking it out.

For a chance to win a spot in this class, please post a comment on yesterday’s post HERE. Good luck!

We have a few winners! I emailed everyone.

Next, I have a birthday share for you. Seems fitting since my little guy turns 5 tomorrow.

I am so loving the new partnership between Hero Arts and Basic Grey. I adore both of these companies – the best of stamps and the best of papers. Delightful.

(For complete supplies, click the little product images below.) Those little stars? They were created with THIS border punch. Love how tiny they are! And the Life of the Party 6×6 paper pads are perfect for birthday cards. The small scale of the patterns rock. To alter the corners of the card, I just used a small circle punch.

And since I love Basic Grey + Hero Arts so much, I have a giveaway for you! Just leave a comment here by Sunday at 11:59pmEST for a chance to win a Basic Grey 12×12 Lauderdale patterned paper pack, Lauderdale Pops, Lauderdale Canvas and a Hero Arts Life of the Party stamp. (Oh, and those Lauderdale goodies aren’t available until April!)

Good luck to you all.

Oh, and wish me luck. I have a party with 30 kids tomorrow. Eek!

    I am thrilled as well that Hero Arts and BG have teamed up as these are both companies I really love! I want it all! Love what you did with this card, great! Glad to hear the party went well. We did a bowling party a few years ago for my daughter, really fun but we didn’t have 30 children, wow! I commend you on your bravery, lol!

    Happy Birthday to Colin.
    I began my interest with card making and stamping through HERO ARTS and I have been an avid follower ever since . Basic Grey to me is the nicest paper I have ever used so for both of them coordinating together is awesome. I hope I have the opportunity to win this set. My favorites together. I hope I am lucky!!!

    I was the lucky winner of the Kerri Bradford <a href= http://kerribradford.blogspot.com/ This and That Kits. The prize is all six of Kerri’s kits that are designed for the Seven Gypsy’ letterbox printer’s tray.

    I don’t have a digital cutter but I was able to complete the project by cutting some of the pieces by hand in some cases and by layering the pieces in Photoshop in others. I have theGratitude kit finished and hope to work on the others soon. I love the idea for using magnets to switch out the components throughout the year.

    Thanks Kerri and Jennifer!
