December Scrap Bribing

>> Thursday, December 20, 2007

The theme for this month... Well, actually it's a dual theme. So let's call it
Resolutions and These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

As I mentioned before, this is- by far- the largest prize I have given. There's a lot going on, so let's get to it.

Everything you see here is included.

What? You can't see what's inside the lovely scrap organizer? Well, let me show you...

First I have included an assortment of Prima flowers. I love these. They are great to group together or to scatter on a page. I have used them on top of photos and have laid them on a page as background. You will also see chipboard cut outs. There is so much you can do with these. Paint them, glitter them, trace them...
Next comes the resolution part (unless your resolution is to scrapbook more- mine is!). The Organized Life has tips for organizing every aspect of your life. I have tried to get you started with the tote... The rest is up to you.
Back to scrapping goodies. This is a pack of 8x8 Christmas papers. I like 8x8 sizes for background, accents and photo mats.
And there is more!

Here we have loose sparkle, paint and Stickles. I love to paint chipboard and sprinkle the loose stuff on. The sprinkles stick to the wet paint and you spend less than a pre-sparkled goodie. The Stickles are great for accenting a page. I love to add them to stickers to give them a bit more dazzle.

This may be one of my most favorite things: Glue Dots. I especially like the mini size because they don't bunch up and they are never too big.

Not done yet!
Here are 3 rolls of ribbon (about 1 foot each, I think) and rows of self stick rhinestones. I love to accent with ribbon, either as a frame for photos or with a bow or knot. The rhinestones are great for the Prima flowers or to accent, well, anything.
And, finally, I have chipboard alphabet charms and mini Prima flowers. These charms are great if you attach them with a bit of wire or brads. And these little flowers look great mixed with the larger ones.
Do you love it? Of course you do! So enter! All you have to do is leave me a comment! So easy!
Want more chances? Write a nice little bit about this giveaway on your blog and link to it. (Be sure to let me know!) I will add an extra entry for you.
AND, be sure to tell everyone who visits from your blog to let me know you sent them! For every comment I get that tells me you sent them I will enter both of you!

I got the package yeasterday and what a package it was! My girls scavengered the prize, but I was left with a few of the goodies for myself. ;)
I love the Alpha Charms, I am going to hang them from the ribbon to spell out the recipients name on the next gift I wrap.
Brielle grabbed the book first- 10 is not too young to learn some good habits!

Thanks again! gina
