I'm back with a couple of giveaways! I'm on a bit of a mission to get my craft supply stash down to "Not-So-Crazy", so I'll be doing these small giveaways every once in a while.
October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, so the first giveaway is in honour of that! I also wanted to mention that there will be a pet food drive at Petco stores across the US from October 28 to November 11! They need lots of food and volunteers, so if this sounds like something you can help with, please click here for more info! I heard about this pet food drive through an e.mail from Best Friends Animal Society, and the message in the e.mail said, "Give Local Pets a Full Tummy for the Holidays". Doesn't that hit you in the heart? Here is the prize I'm offering in honour of Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month:
The winner will receive 2 yards of awesome pleated ric rac trim [looks better than it appears in the photo!] and a "You're the Best" embellishment from Making Memories, a DIY Thickers set from American Crafts, a pack of Doodlebug gems, 2 embossed die-cuts from We R Memory Keepers, and best of all, 7 photo die-cuts of dogs from Paper House Productions! It may sound terrible, but the only reason I'm offering those dog die-cuts is because I have multiples of them -- otherwise I'd be keeping them for myself! :D If the little guy in the front looks kind of familiar, that's because I shared a card with him a while back. :o) This prize pack will also include some pet-friendly colours of twine and ribbon!
A note about the DIY Thickers: It says that you can use glitter, microbeads and tinsel on them, but I have personally tried them with microbeads, and they are not sticky enough to hold the microbeads on. They did hold some on at first, but the microbeads would brush off kind of easily. Something lighter, like glitter, would probably be a better choice, although I don't have any loose glitter in my supply stash, so I can't do a test! When I tried them with microbeads, I used my own DIY Thickers set -- the winner will get a new set!
And just because Halloween is fast-approaching, here is a Halloween prize pack I'm offering to a second winner:
The winner will receive 2 different types of Halloween twine [NOT the whole spools, but I'll give you 15 yards of each], a sheet of dimensional stickers from American Crafts, a pack of Doodlebug gems, and a little pile of Halloween die-cuts from K & Company [I bought one of those die-cut packs and used some, but there are quite a few left -- there are more than what the photo shows]. This prize pack will also include some glassine bags that you can decorate and make treat bags with if you wish!
Phew, this blog post is too long! I'll keep the rest brief: Want to win? Leave a comment by next Monday, October 15th before 5pm, and I'll pick 2 winners that evening! If you have a preference between the prize packs, let me know in your comment!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!
