Stampin’ Up! Three Blog Candy Winners!

Good morning – again!  This is my THIRD post of the day – I shared cards for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge and then for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop earlier today.  

This post is to announce the three winners of my 2018 Happy New Year Blog Candy!  I used my handy dandy Random Number generator – three times! – and here’s how the “dice” rolled!

So…the winner of Package #1 (A Cottage Greetings Project Kit and Cottage Greetings stamp set, a bunch of Stampin’ Spots in all sorts of colors, and a slew of cards and card fronts for you to use/embellish/finish!) is…

Comment #60 was from Carol Swedlund, who wrote:

I’m so glad that I ran across you and your beautiful cards on – a challenge blog, don’t remember now which one. I must admit to using mostly CTMH supplies (I’m in a local stamp club with great people) but since I rediscovered SU! through you I’m enjoying meshing supplies from both companies! This year I am going to do my best to FINISH a project (whether it’s making a card, doing genealogy etc.) and put everything away before starting the next project. I’m so tired of digging for my scissors or glue dots under a large pile of supplies! Thank you for this opportunity to win such great blog candy”  

Whoo-Hoo!!  Carol – I’ll be contacting you shortly and getting your goodies on their way! 🙂

Next up, Package #2 is…Finely Woven Ribbon in the 2017-2019 In Colors, the current SAB Happy Wishes stamp set, some 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows Embellishments, and a pack of 2016-2018 Glitter Acrylic Shapes.

And the Random Number generator yielded:

Comment #47 was from Karen in Florida, who wrote:

“Hi Mary! What a great give-away!! If we get to choose, I’d LOVE LOVE to have pkg #2. I don’t have any of the finely woven ribbon or the itty bitty bows…but I NEED them for sure! The stamp set would be great, since I send out so many birthday cards (47 in 2017!). I think my resolution for 2018 is to not stress out so much. And, of course, continue making cards! My craft room is my happy place. I wish you health & happiness in 2018! Give The Man a little kiss on the nose for me!”

Yeah, Karen!  That worked out pretty good, huh?? I’ll be in touch shortly and we’ll get your candy on the way!

Finally – Package #3 is… a Pretty Pocket Card Kit, the SAB stamp sets Amazing You and Lots of Lavender, a 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes, and a pack of Touches of Nature Elements.

One more time….

And our final winner is…Sandra Warthen, who wrote…

You celebrated the same way we did! My creative space is so messy that I haven’t been as productive as I would like to be, Organized is what I want for the new year. So happy that you are reaching your goals. You are an awesome demonstrator and I am so glad that I found you. Have a blessed year. (hope that trip to the Mediterranean is just around the corner)

Whoo-hoo!  Congrats, Sandi – I’ll be in touch shortly and get your goodies on the way!

Thanks so much to all of you for leaving a comment and sharing your goals and resolutions for 2018!! A lot of folks planning to organize their craft rooms – me, too! 🙂

As a bonus –  you’ll get a free gift from me when you order!!  Or two free gifts…read on to see what I mean… and I’m also letting you cash in on Sale-a-Bration FREEBIES!

I’ll also add in a pack of the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes (they’re on page 19 of the Occasions Catalog) when you place an order for one of these bundles.  

Order multiple bundles at the same time…and I’ll throw in a pack of the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes (page 33)!  🙂

So – if these look good to you, head over to my Stamps-N-Lingers 2018 Occasions Catalog Bundles page and fill out the form you’ll find there.  There are also pictures of the bundles!  

And – since it’s Sale-A-Bration time – I’m going to let you reap those benefits, too!  After each bundle you’ll see noted the number of SAB items that will come with that bundle (Level 1 and/or Level 2) – so please type which ones you’d like into the box in the order form!  If I have any questions, I’ll drop you an e-mail!

I’ll send you a PayPal invoice as soon as you order.  Then, on 3 Jan,  I’ll get them ordered and right on the way to you!  Please note: these offers are available to anyone – but I can only ship to addresses in the United States. 🙂

Take the Red Box Challenge!!
Between Now and 31 Jan 18 at 11:59 PM (MT).

Happy New Year, everyone! The Paper Pumpkin team is especially excited for 2018, and we have two great reasons: (1) This year’s kits are amazing and (2) We’ve decided to kick off 2018 with a superfun giveaway!

We’re calling it the Red Box Challenge, and it’s easy to get in on the fun!

Simply put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit—or buy a past kit that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with #redboxchallenge and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a Paper Pumpkin kit.

Now, we think all of our kits are wonderful and amazing–but our random drawing winners will receive the upcoming Paper Pumpkin fifth anniversary March kit. Think: Gorgeous and collectible. Everyone is going to want one. AND the winners will get it in their mailbox before anyone else. 

Sound fun? Check out the terms and conditions here, then start crafting your Red Box Challenge project today!

Note: Some project ideas will be selected from the entries and featured in Paper Pumpkin’s monthly newsletter and on our Facebook and Pinterest pages. Past alternative Paper Pumpkin projects you’ve created and posted on social media are not eligible for this contest.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator. Just click on the Order Stampin’ Up! Online Now button on the right side of the screen to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!
