GIVEAWAY! (Oh yeah, and a new blog design!)

I'm so pleased to reveal my brand new blog design by my friend Diana over at Custom Blog Designs.  She has done several of these for me now, and she's always so patient with me when I give vague information and expect her to know what I'm thinking.  Need a new blog design?  It's much more reasonably priced than you might expect.  Drop her a line!

What do you think of the new design?  Can you guess which paper packet inspired it?  (I'll give you a hint, it made its debut in the Fall/Winter 2011 Idea Book, but it was such a favorite that it carried over and also appears in the Spring/Summer 2012 as well!)

I couldn't think of any better way to celebrate my new design than to have a GIVEAWAY!!  And it's a big one - worth almost $100!  All you have to is "like" my blog on Facebook (HERE!), then "share" this post with your Facebook friends.  Leave a comment on the Facebook post that features a link to this blog post, letting me know that you've done that, and you're entered for the drawing!

Oh, you're still wondering what I'm giving away?

It's pretty amazing.

Getting curious?

The lucky winner - assuming there are at least 10 entries in the drawing, will receive their choice of a FREE CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, OR, $99 in CTMH product of their choice!  Holy cow, that's almost $100 worth of goodies just for clicking a couple of times!

I think you'll really love this collection.  It comes with TONS of coordinating stamps so you can make really professional-looking cards, scrapbook pages, party invitations - whatever strikes your fancy!  If you already have the collection, or don't have a Cricut, you have the option to take $99 in free product instead!

So hurry, head over to Facebook, "like" my page if you haven't already, and then "share" my post dated 5/21/12 with your friends, then leave me a comment saying that you did.

Want an extra entry in the drawing?  Well, it's your lucky day!  Follow this blog (look for the blue "join this site" button to the right) and leave a comment on this post letting me know you're a follower.  Please note that you still have to do the Facebook part and get that entry before you can get this second one.

Now, GO!  Make sure we get at least 10 entries by midnight on June 2!  Tell your friends!

Happy May Day!

To celebrate the arrival of one of my favorite months, let's check out the Stamp of the Month!

Isn't that pretty?!  If you're a new stamper, don't let its detail scare you off.  This is a perfect stamp to learn some new techniques on.  And for only $5 with a $50 purchase, how can you go wrong?

Oh, and while we're at it, do you have your special limited edition Dotty for You paper pack yet?

In honor of National Scrapbooking Month, this kit is also only $5 with a $35 purchase!

That's right - if you place a $50 order, you can get the above stamp AND the above paper packet for only $10 combined!  I think you'll have fun with Dotty for You.  It just oozes spring and joy and renewal, and I love all of those things!  Grab it now, though, because it's going back into the vault soon.

In other news around here, my family is preparing for our first trip out of town since my (19 month old) son was born.  It's a whole different ballgame preparing for a trip with a little one, isn't it!  Thankfully it's just a road trip - no flying - but still, I'm terrified I'll forget something important.  I do this to myself every time I go somewhere!  It's funny.  Well, it's funny after the fact anyway.

I think what I'm most excited about is capturing some new memories to scrapbook!  Now that I have finally started his scrapbook, I'm always looking for new layout ideas.  Maybe we'll have enough fun to justify a whole new volume!
