4 year Blogversary and a Giveaway!!

Well.....Today, I have been blogging for 4 years...Sooooo.....I think I should have a little Blogversary giveaway. Just a few of my favorite things. I love mini's, I love canvas art, and I love warm colors.
I have all of these intentions of doing lots of little mini's, but never seem to get to it. So as I was die cutting some great Tim Holtz Dies, I got the itch again. I thought of including a few packages of these wonderful diecuts to make some little mini album kits to include in my giveaway. Then add in a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I worked this "kit" that I create around some beautiful papers I just purchased from The Paper Trunk. Although retired now, I still have a complete set to give away. I found coordinating embellies to go with the papers, some lace, buttons, ribbon, flowers and diamond dust. I added some grunge board, glassine paper and a 12x12 canvas. I threw in a 6x6 paper pack from Basic Grey, Motifica, another retired pattern, but an alltime fave for me. So here is a list of what is in the "kit"...

6 papers from paper Trunk Batik Collection (retired)
12x12 Canvas
3 sheets of Grunge Board in Swirls, Harlequin and Dots design
2 pieces of Glassine paper
6x6 paper pack of basic Grey Motifica design (retired)
4 paper lace doilies in different sizes and shapes
bag of coordinating assorted buttons
baggie of Diamond Dust
pack of Zva self adhesive crystals
pack of Kaisercraft wooden butterflies
Bag of assorted florals and leaves
Card of 10 different ribbons and lace which includes seam binding to color yourself
1 pack of Rhinestone hatpins
Urban Rhapsody Naked Chipboard Tag Pad
Colorbok Butterfly Chipboard Book
Tim Holtz Vintage Valise chipboard mini kit
Tim Holtz Tiny Tags and Tabs chipboard mini kit
Tim Holtz Tags and Bookplates chipboard mini kit

Create a canvas, a layout, or some mini's...It's just a little something I put together to say Thank You. Thank you for following me, for inspiring me and just keeping this wonderful addiction..ummm..I mean hobby, a wonderful part of my life!!







These are the dies I used to create the chipboard kits for the mini's . You can follow or be inspired by the many tutorials on the web for design ideas. Or just visit Tim's Blog for the Ultimate experience!! And now he has created the 12 Tags of 2012!!! Imagine a mini using some of his designs!! Yummy!
To win this kit, Just leave me a comment, and follow my blog. To double your chances and be able to leave me 2 comments, in the second comment, let me know that you placed this giveaway in your sidebar on your blog, and to TRIPLE your chances, just leave me a 3rd comment that you mentioned this giveaway on Facebook...That's 3 chances to win a little piece of my stash...Do all 3??? I'll throw in some extra's!! Hell, every once in a while, I'll add more stash to the kit till giveaway time.
