Giveaway! And A Muse goodness…

Happy, stampers.

So, I have a great giveaway. This one comes from the super generous folks at Simon Says Stamps. I ordered something from them. Something small. A few days later at my doorstep, there was a GIANT box. LOTS of great goodies inside. I emailed Heidi and she said, "give it away!" So, I have lots to give give give. I will randomly give them away over the next couple weeks. But in the meantime, I want to do one today. Want this baby?…


THIS die cut from Tim Holtz fits perfectly on a card. LOVE it. If you want this baby, just leave a comment here by Friday night telling me your favorite color to craft with and I will pick a lucky winner. Good luck!

Next up…

I was so excited that Jenn from A Muse was coming to Simply Scrapbooks. I know Jenn from shows where she attends for the store she works for. She is FUN, so I knew I needed to go see her. Her class rocked – she is a hoot – and I bought lots of new A Muse goodness afterward. Made this quickie card yesterday…

Supplies: A Muse wreath stamp; Hero Arts stamps (greeting, graph background); Hero Arts notecard, metallic decor and White Chalk Ink; Glitter Pen; Colored Pencils.

I cut the center of the wreath out with a craft knife. "Peace" is stamped on the inside. Simple.

OH… and I see A Muse has some giveaways going on right now on their blog… look HERE.

Off to bed. Night!

  7. Oh my goodness!!! Favorite color to craft with? I am sorry to say that I don’t have a favorite color to craft with, it all depends on my mood and what I am creating. I’m not much of a favorites person at all, I have very few favorites of anything. Guess I just like them all.
    Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful die!

  8. Oh goodie a giveaway! I keep hoping someday to win something. My favorite color at the moment is PURPLE.

  10. A simple and elegant card! My favorite color to craft with is kraft; it seems to go with just about any other colors, including white. Thanks for the opportunity!! I love Tim Holtz products!!!

  11. My favorite color to craft with, black. I think it goes w/every other color and can really add the “personality” to the project. From bold to sophisticated, black is the color that sets the tone.

  12. Totally unoriginal, but… aqua/turquoise/teal are my favorites for scrapbooking, home decor, clothes, jewelry, luggage and everything else in my life!

  24. I find it depends on the season, this summer I have into the happy summer colors orange, aqua, teal, green, white. But overall I notice I am using a TON more kraft…..wonder why? Seems like alot of the “pros” or just really talented ladies out there use alot of kraft. So I must be learning something new!

  27. I Have looked at that die cut for sometime. Always pick up a diff Tim Holtz product. Would love to own it. Thank you for sharing.
