Hit It! It's Blog Candy Time!

***Please note: I changed the date of this post to keep it at the top of my blog until the drawing. So until after the drawing (you have until Feb. 2nd to enter), please scroll DOWN below this post to see all the latest stuff!***

Well aaaalllllll right!! I promised blog candy when my little corner of the Netiverse reached 2,500 hits -- which it did on January 20th! What a fun feeling that was. :-) So I got some fun goodies together (finally) and I can't wait to give them away! Check it out:


What do you think? The lucky winner will receive a package of self-adhesive rhinestones (I use these ALL the time!), a package of garden/spring-themed buttons, a small tin with Prima Flowers, a Brocade Blue stampin' spot, a wood-mounted "girlfriends" stamp, an EZ-mount stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms that says "precious", a brand new black Prismacolor alcohol marker, 5 yards of white and green striped ribbon, 3/8" and 5 yards of plum and pink two-tone grosgrain ribbon, 3/8" wide. I thought that these were pretty spring-ish items, and we could definitely use some "spring" feelings around here, it is snowing AGAIN!!!


So, all you have to do to be entered to win this spring bling is leave me a comment on this post and tell me what papercrafting tutorial you would most like to see me write up and post here on my blog. This will be a step-by-step tutorial with photographs. I will keep this contest open until Saturday, February 2nd at midnight, and have my DS #1 draw a name on Sunday morning.


Next blog candy at 5,000 hits (sooner if I come up with a good "just because" contest idea)!

38 people made my day!:

A technique I like a lot, but haven't tried yet is tape lifting.
I'm not sure how to start, so a tutorial would be useful for me (and others probably).

Melissas said...

I just got a new Crop-a-dile, and while I love it, I'm sure I'm not using it to its full potential. A step by step for dry embossing with it (how far do you squeeze?) and the correct line up of eyelets, etc would be a great help! Thanks for sharing :)

Angel W said...

Hmmm.... I would like to see a tutorial on altering items as well!

You are really good with glitter so I'd like a tutorial on how you apply it, what supplies you use, etc. I'm good at using the Stickles, but I have no clue as what type glue to use for all over glitter. And if you want more than one color glitter, how do you keep if from getting into your other color.
