2 Cool & Pretty Vintage Craft Creations GIVEAWAY!

It's Friday and that means it's the last day of my MIXED MEDIA & SCRAPBOOKING INSPIRATION KIT   Sale!  

Thank you so much to all you lovely ladies who have purchased this amazing kit already and those of you who plan to purchase it TODAY!  YAY!  

I will be giving the following goodies away in a random kind of drawing on Saturday morning, March 28th.  Everyone who comments and or shares, etc., gets an entry(s) and then whoever  orders the Mixed Media &  Scrapbooking Inspiration Kit  or who has already ordered it,  will get an additional FIVE (5) entries!  SWEET! ♡

Click here to see all the kit photos and order with the PayPal button in the right sidebar.  Easy Peasy! : )

Here is a sample of what's going in your kit! (Props are so not included, as you know) 

In the large kit, you'll receive four (4) of the vintage playing card stencils and two (2) in the medium kit.  In the GIVEAWAY, you'll receive 3!  These are the actual cards that will be in the GIVEAWAY!  (In the kits, it may be these cards, or other super cute designs.)  

You can use your cool stencil with paint, spray ink, markers, pens or even those small little ink pads. These vintage cards are plastic coated unlike the more modern, thinner version.  They should last a good little while, if properly taken care of.  I just wipe my stencils off with a baby wipe and then dry with a paper towel.

Oh, BONUS!  You also get the confetti that is a result of making these fun stencils!  I know, I know . . . you didn't expect that! ;p

The second GIVEAWAY goodie is a set of 3 vintage crepe paper stitched ruffles!  They come in the most soft and beautiful spring colors.  White, pink and mint.  You'll get these exact ruffles, which are between 12" and 14", in the GIVEAWAY.  In the large kit you will also get 3 (one of each color) of this size (12"-14") and the same in the medium kit, except half the size. (6"-7")  Aren't the colors delightful?

I am also including one (1) vintage bingo card.  This is also included in the kit . . . two (2) for the large kit and one (1) for the medium kit.  This is such a neat Bingo Card, if I do say so myself!  And so will you when you see it! ♡

Now, scroll all the way to the bottom, while looking at the photos, of course . . . for one last message.

I said I was going to knock your socks off with this kit and you turned around and knocked MY socks off!   I've gotten so much support and kind words and lots of sales!  Thanks again ladies, from the bottom of my heart!

I can't wait to package it all up with love and washi tape and get them on the way to you!!  (Shipping will be on April 1st)

What are you most looking forward to checking out when you receive your kit?  I'd love to hear what you're most excited about! :)

What I do at 11o'clock at night instead of sleeping!

That's right!  You got it!  I MAKE STUFF!  I was really winding down for the night, kinda early for a change.  I was talking to some friends earlier today about our sucky schedules and poor eating, sleeping and soda and coffee drinking ways.  But you know what?  That's a whole different blog post!  This one is just pure fun!

So I was scoping out Pinterest, as I like to do before bed and I came across this super cute little pocket in a little passport sized journal!  And I loved it and said to myself . . . "I think I could make something like that"  So, instead of just pinning it to it's appropriate board for later viewing, I decided I wanted to make it now!  I had some paper grocery bags, that I sew up for my packaging, and some cute tissue right within arms reach.  My sewing machines are always at the ready!  So when inspiration hits, sometimes you just gotta go with it, right?  A maker has just gotta MAKE!  Do what you love!

So, what do you think?  I think it turned out pretty dang cute!  As you can see in the photo above I stitched up the short side of the pocket as well.  I did this to make it a true pocket that would hold things more securely.  If I was keeping this pocket, which I'm not, I would punch a couple of holes in it and put it in with my mini journal, which uses binder rings. 

But YOU could do it however you want!  Cause I'm going to give it away.  (Props are so not included, as you know.  It will be the pocket and the little blue journal card in the pocket.)  I will give one away in a random kind of drawing and then whoever orders the Mixed Media &  Scrapbooking Inspiration Kit TODAY ONLY (March 25th) will receive one of these in their Kit!  Hoo & Ray, right!  That's right!  Click here to see all the kit photos and order with the PayPal button in the right sidebar.  Easy Peasy! : )

For the pockets that will go with whomever orders today, I am going to do the inside of the pocket in vintage atlas page paper.  I think that will look pretty cool!

Thanks so much everybody for your awesome support!  I wish I could have you all over for a big craft happy weekend!  Wouldn't that be amazing!! :)

Orders will ship on April 1, 2015, Wednesday and that's not fooling! :)  All kits will be similar to these photos and the vintage pages will be removed from the books at the time of order.

Here is the Inspiration Kit list:

All orders will be a little different due to the nature of ephemera, however this in NO WAY effects the yumminess of your Kit!  A large kit and a medium kit are the same except in quantity . . . a medium kit is 1/2 the content as the large kit, which makes the large kit an even more SUPER VALUE! ♡

Questions?  Please feel free to leave them in the comments below.  Now, remember too, this isn't everything.  I'll be making some mini banners and confetti over the weekend for you and yes . . . that IS my idea of a FUN weekend! ;)  Oh, and I'm thinking about a giveaway too, what do you think?
